Facetiæ. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 3 September 1887
Jac ti..1 thng goes Without saying. Pocketing the insult-accepting' abribe. The winds are regulated by the blew laws. Food for reflection-the good dinner that you missed. A man may be a bal egg, but he's all right till he gets " broke." If you are good' you know it ; if you are bad, everybody knows it. A hen is a very superior creature, bat she never could lay a corner-stone. Which is the worst sinner, the man who can sing and won't, or the man who can't and will ? It is believed that the millenium will surely come when everyone strikes for no hours a day. Socrates had it about right when he said : " Woman once made equal to a man becomes his superior." To make a good husband, give a man a good wife. A man's funny bone, we presume, enables him to " laugh in his sleeve." A " premature wrinkle " is one that comes in a woman's face before she is married. As the milk gets poorer the milkman gets richer. It's true without being a para 'dox. Lawyers should' be the last] ones to find fault...

Oh, Spare that Tree. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 3 September 1887
Oh, Spare that Tree. To the Editor. Sir,-A=llow me through your. col umns to suggest the advissibility of, the B3orough Councillors having a spelling bee by manuring the trees recently disfigured in the reserve, so as to assist them in sprouting. If this does not induce the trees to blossom into leaf, as a ratepayer, I would be in favor of buying a few pots of paint, and then let each councillor take one of the stumps of the trees which are left, and see which one can.paint it greenest so as to replace the beauty for the coming season which the gardens have been vanldilised of. Yours truly, HORSE RADISH.
Breaking the Ice. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 3 September 1887
OBreaking the Ice. An up.country beau visited his sweetheart After sitting in silence for half an hour an idea struck him, and stealing a glance at the girl on the other side of the fireplace, he whispered : " Do you love rabbits ?" " Y-a-s." "Hain't the gravy good ? The ice was broken, and in a few moments both parties occupied one chair with every appearance of ease and comfort. When a man is too buiy to laugh he needs a holi .ay. By a strange mischance births, deaths, marriages, and the proceedings of the Mel bourne Divorce Court, got under the head ing of "Ladies Column" in an up-country paper. The Fijians are anxious to be annexed to Victoria. This is a gratifying proof that these intelligent and discriminating savages are pleased with the texture and flavor of Victorian missionary. "Weeks-Hyde. -On the 10th August, William Weeks, farmer, of ivanhoe, to Agnes Hyde, relect of the late Francis Hyde." This little clipping might be aptly labelled the weak-side of nature.

Krupp, of cannon fame, started bus iness with 3 workmen and more debts than fortune. One o: his works covers 500 acres, and he employed 20,000 workmen. Who w\ill entice a man of a similar stamp to settle on Queenseliff ?

Cause She Didn't Like Pie. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 3 September 1887
'Cause She Didn't Like Pie. A teacher was endeavoring to find out the proficiencyv of her little friends in mental arithmetic, and took the following method of ascertaining what she desired know : S"Now, children," she said, "suppose I had two pies, and divided one of them in ten pieces and the other into one hundred pieces, which would you rather have, a piece of the pie that was divided into ten pieces or of that cut into one hundred pieces 7" There was an absolute' hush for a moment, and then a little girl answered timidly: " One of the one hundred pieces l" "Why so ?" "Well, please, ma'am, I don't like pie."
His Reason. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 3 September 1887
His Reason. In the smaller towns of these colonies the stranger is always struck by the apparent fact that the landlord of the hotel ought to be in some other business. There is no sys tem in management, and it never seems to occur to mine host that anything is expected of him. One day, when the landlord of a township hotel sat down with me for a smoke, I summoned up courag'e to say : "Landlord, that was an awful bed you gave me last night." " Yes, sir-don't doubt it, sir. I've got some very bad beds in this house." " And your servants here are very lazy and impudent." 11 " I know it. Yes, sir, they are." "And such fare 1 That coffee was aw ful." " I know it. I've had to stop drinking coffee." "And that butter is not fit to grease a cart with." "That's it exactly. No body dan ea'. that stuff." "And you don't know how to cook meals." "We don't,, sir, and I'm free to: admit it.'" " I noticed ,that the milk was about half water." "I think it was. I used to drink it, but now I take clea...

About to Wed. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 3 September 1887
About to Wed. Constance is very young, but she is also betterworth quoting than most grown peo ple. Her envy was somewhat aroused 'by the fact that a wedding was about to take place in the family of her little playmate, and that the playmate thereby had the ad vantage of her; so she remarked very com placently to her little friend's mamma : " Mrs. - , did you know that I was en gaged to be married ? " "Why, no, Conny. Is that so ? " "' Yes, ma'am ; I'm engaged to Jack Ward," (small boy of her acquaintance). "He doesn't know it, but I've got to ex plain it to him." " Well, Conny, do you expect to be mar. ried soon ?" " Well, I hope so. The fact is, I'm tired of being slapped, and I think we'll be mar ried very soon,"

SPORTS and PASTIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 3 September 1887
SPORTS and PASTI.IMES. Football.--Now that this is the age when football is all the topic, I propose to give a few hints on its merits and origin, I will continence then as far back as I can. No national pastime can claim anything like.so ancient an origin as football. This I thinlk no one will dispute when I say that there are traces of the game among the (rreeks amii Romans before the christian Era. The Greeks had a game which bore Somee resembllace to our modern football. The general name among the Ronmans for ball play wan Pila and no doubt one method of playing was with the feet. In the United Kingdom football origin ated in Scotland and the northern countries of England Through trad ition we learn that in the year 217 a cohort of Roman soldiers while passing through Little Chester was attacked and defeated by the populace, and in conmmemoration of this a great football match was played on shrove Tuesday of each year. by the inhabitants of Little Chester. All over the country s...
Effects of Marriage. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 3 September 1887
Effects of Marriage. Not many men pass through the experience of marriage without some change, for better or worse, in their outward condition at least. In many cases the change is an im provement, a source of enjoymei'r to the man himself, and a subject for flattering comment on the part of his friends. This is especially so with regard to slovenly fel lows, who often look, after they have come into the hands of a neat and energetic wife, as if they had just gone through a Turkish bath, had their cravats tied, and been fitted out by a competent tailor. It is with a shock of pleased surprise that one meets with a man of this character soon after his marriage, .finding i?iii not merely clothed, as of yore,'but dressed, brushed, and 'trimmed as to his hair, and well shaved. In fact, he seems to have acquired a new set of bones ; his back is certainly-straighter, the shape of his head is altered entirely, and a pair of well-defined shoulders have emerged frem the mass of cloth under wh...
