.: 'HE NEW GRAMOPHONE. M?'drs. Waddle was in quite a state I excitement when the new gramo :phone arrived and thinking to give 'the parrot a surprise, she started the instrument,ofl with " Rocaked in the *Cradle of the Deep," as sung by Mr. Waddle in his most approved draw dng-room fashion. At the very first note Polly opened her eyes in surprise, and then flew to her perch, where she rocked her sell to and fro in deep and speechless astonishmbent, while the machine ground out the air. " There, Polly," said Mrs. Waddl?,e when the song had come to an end. "' What do you think of that ?" "My word." shrieked the old bird his head on one side, and winking wickodly, *' my word, my word, my word ! We've got the old man boxed ths time and no mistake."- -

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 20 February 1915
THE ' excursion ' season is at hand and several important organisations have already visited Queenscliff. A number of those to come have.been regular in their attendance here for many years, and have grown to become a part of the expected from year to year. The managing-com mittees of these bodies are now so conversant with the town, and especially our parks, that, partly for our information and principally for their own convenience, they have forwarded recommendations to the council for future benefits when acknowledging the council's courtesy in helping them to spend their annual holiday. These re commendations have been received with thanks, - and it has been the fullest intention of the council to bring some of them into effect; but for one reason and another, princi pally financial, these have not been attended to. One of the chief sug gestions has been a commodious rotunda in the lower park; an other, a properly laid out running track near I the pier; and still an other, perha...
SOUTH AMERICAN TRAVEL. ITS TERRORS : ITS DELIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 20 February 1915
SOUTH AMERICAN TRAVEL. ITS TERRORS: ITS DELIGHTS. Except for journeys round the fringe of South America, travelling there is a desperate business. No where else surely in the world are fevers so malignant, forests and rivers so vast and uninhabited, and insects and snakes so murderous. More than one person has started up the Amazon, meaning to reach Peru and travel to Lima via one of the Amazon tributaries, and then by an untn shed railway which he strikes some few hundred miles out side Lima ; but has been turned back at Para, at the very mouth of the river, !y a murderous onslaught of mos:;uitoes, wasps, and bees of in credi},le size, and chigoes which per sisted in laying eggs-in the skin of his toes. A. French traveller, who started from Gi.afaquil, crossed the Andes of Ecuador to the Amazon, and then descend: d the river, could not make up his mind which' scenery was gran der and which horrors were worse, thitse of the mountains or the river. The well-known ships of the Booth L...

ROUND AND ROUND. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 20 February 1915
ROUND AND ROUND. It seemed a very difficult thing to make little Bessie understand that the earth revolved round and round. One day she came in -from playing and said: 'Mother, I believe the earth does turn round.' 'What is it that has convinced you, dear ?' asked,the mother. 'I can see it whirl,' said Bessie, 'when I twist up my swing and then untwist it.' 'Isn't it you that whirls,' asked the mother, 'insteadof the, earth ?' 'But,' explained Bessie, 'it goes after I stop.',

PASTURING LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 20 February 1915
PASTURING LUCERNE. That lucerne is not a pasture plant has long been recognised by our far mers, and it is only as a rule indif ferent landlords and rapacious ten ants that take chances on grazing it. Its intimate relation to the mower and the rake is coming to be appre ciated and either as hay or as soil ing crop it finds its highest efficiency. This, however, need not imply that lucerne cannot be successfully grazed. It's rather a question as to how this is done and if certain precautions are followed grazing is not injurious. A primary rule should be not to let stock on lucerne when there is no growth to feed on. A lucerne field should not., be a loafing place for stock. Tramping is injurious to the crown and to the soil, as is also the eating of the tender shoots just as they start from the crown. These shoots appeal to the taste of stock, and in eating them, growth is not only stopped, but the older stalks and leaves are refused. Secondly, keep stock out of lucerne while the so...

(ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.) UNDER THE BAN OF THE ZAR,e -- O R, THE WINNING OF ISOLDE. -4----- By St. George Rathborne, Autbor of "Omar Kassam," etc. PART 12. CHAPTER XXXVII. THUNDERBOLTS FORGED BY' JOVE. This new trouble, coming so unex pected!3, and with such utterly over whelming force, was quite enough to paralyze an ordinary man. Had everything depended on Vladi mir; then was the end of their rope reached. Fortunate Dugdale was keener of wit, and better able to grasp the horns of a dilemma. "The horses are gone, little mas ter. All is lost ! We must stand and meet the worst," was what the big Cossack cried, in sore dismay. Even .while he was yet giving ut terance to this despairing wail, Dug dale saw a sudden gleam of hope in the darkness. How eagerly he snatch ed at it proved their desperate state. "You said three trees. Are you sure, Vladimir ?" he shouted. "Yes, three." "But see, here are four. It is a mistake, and this is not the place." Then the Cossack burst into a shout as his...
DOCTOR AND PATIENT. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 27 February 1915
DOCTOR AND PATIENT. The late Dr. Cruveilhier, of Paris, t a man of unbounded liberality. One day he heard that a poor young woman, whose husband was a clerk in the War Office, had been taken ser iously ill. He went to see her, at tended her for a month, and finally brought her round. At the end of this period he per ceived that the husband wished to ask him for his account, and for time to pay it in. He did not like to hurt the young man's feelings, and, noticing an Algerian carpet in the room, worth aoout fifteen francs, he exclaimed : "'What a lovely piece of carpet you have got there I" "Ah ! doctor," said the husband, "If you think you would like to have it-u "I should indeed,, very much like to: have it. Look here, we will make a bargain. You owe me two hundred francs for my visits. Your carpet is worth three hundred. Here are a hundred francs, and I'll take it with me." And he left, glad to have done the poor people a kindness without wounding their pride. On pianos and organs...
A PUGILISTIC CABBY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 27 February 1915
A PUGSLISTIC CABBY. --7------- Mr. Grant Allen used to tell of an amusing experience with a London cab-driver. After leaving his publisher's, he hired a cab to drive' to a brother novelist. On arriving at his destination he tendered the cabby four shillings, which was a little over the proper fare. The driver, however, was not satiaifed, and wanted six shillings. Grant Al len refused to pay more, whereupon the driver offered to fight him for it. Allen, who knew as much about the art of self-defence as the man in the moon, was rather taken bak at the man's request; however, he agreed, saying, "The very thing, my friend will hold the money' and act as refe ree, so come along." Cabby got down and followed him into the gar den. Allen then placed the six shil lings into his friend's hand, took off his coat, rolled up his shirt-sleeves- all with an air of cheerful alacrity, and bade the man come on. His anxiety was intense, but it relaxed as he watched the cabman's face, showing doubt, su...
WHAT THE NIGGER THOUGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 27 February 1915
WHAT THE WIIIGER THOUGHT. Admiral Do Horsey is an excellent racgtenr, and from out of his fund of anecdote, does not hesitate to bring forth a story against himself, if it be a good one. The follow ing is one of the best, especially when told by the Admiral himself. It was when he was Commodore in the West Indies, and his ship lying in Port Royal harbour, Jamaica. One night he went ashore to dine with the Governor at Kingston, but forget to learn the password for the night. Returning on board after dinner, he was stopped at the dock yard gates by a sentry of the West India Regiment. "Who go dar ?" demanded the black warrior, bringing his bayonet to the charge. "A friend," came the reply out of the dark. "Wal, Massa Frien', what am de countersign ?" "That's all right, you know me," said the Commodore. "Me know nobody no got dat countersign," and he brought his bayonet perilously near the officer. "You no can pass h'yar." "But I am Commodore De Hor sey." The nigger broke into a-broad ...
A MAN WHO WAS HANGED. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 27 February 1915
A bAr WHO WAS HUOGES. It was the custom in the good old dayse, espeially in Ireland, to hang condemned men for half an hour, and then hand them over to their friends. A mau named Mahoney was hanged in this way. At the end of half an hoar his body was gien. to his friends, who put him in a coffin they had brought with them, and gtNoped of with him on a cart. But, behire they were out of sight of the ?glows .authorities, the corpse in the exuberance of his joy sat up in the cofin and shouted "THooroo !" A "pall," terrified lest ,his exhibition of vitality should cause the exeou tionaer to come after them, hit the hanged man playfully on the head with his stick, remarking, "Kape quiet, ye divil." The sileacing was so efectual that the victim of it never woke again, but was well and truly waked. that same evening. There was no doubt that the blow on the head had killed him. The facts came to the knowledge of the authorities, and a justice was ap pealed to for a warrant for the cul prit'...
TROUBLE IN CONVERTING THE ISLAND OF LAGILOLO. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 27 February 1915
RtOUBLE IN OUUNVRRTSiti T1E ISLAND OF LAGILOLO. "Yes,"' said the beachcomber, "we 've had a lot of trouble in convertin' our island. One misfortune and an other happened to the missionaries by unforseen circumstances. Of course, I'm only speakin' of events that took place since I've been king of the Island. It was in 1865 on the ship Gineral Jackson that I was put in an open boat on the Pacific Ocean, through the schemin' of the Rev. James McBeaser. I was a circus clown and a Baptis'. The ship had stormy weather, got delayed, and begun to run out of water and food. The Rev. James McBeaser was a board, goin' to the islands as a mis sionary-a Sandemanian missionary. He organised a revival, and they all came into it but me, which I couldn't do, as a Baptis'. We kept on havin' !ad weather, and he told the crew that we couldn't expect good weather as long as there was anybody on; the ship that wouldn't jine the revival. That turned the sailors against me, and when he advised 'em to turn ...

PUBLICATIONS. . Keeping Abreast of the War. :i ' Life,' the popular Australasian maga zine, continues to provide a more com :prehensive view of the progress of the war than any magazine we know. The current (March) issue, for example, contains, in three sections, a masterly summary of the fighting of the month, by Dr Fitchett, in which that brilliant writer describes the fighting in the trenches, the battles ou the seas, and, finally, indicates in which direction the stream is running. To supplement this main statement of the position of the rival forces which, -with its illustrations, occupies about one : fourth of the total issue.of ' Life,' there jare scores of articles, pictures, stories, and ' explanations,' so that one feels, after reading ' Life,' that he is keeping well abreast of the progress of the tre mendous struggle. 'Life' is sold everywhere for sixpence. We are confident that any reader who tries 'L ife' for three months will find that it is a monthly necessity.

THE dire distress of Belgium's thousands appeals to every Britisher, and especially as the motive of the enemy is unravelled does it appeal to Australians. This is fully re cognised, and it is satisfactory to find that in our principal cities and many small towns funds have been organised to help relieve that dis tress. Cannot Queenscliff have its Belgian Fund, is. put forth for consideration of the Mayor, who is ever ready to help in all good and just causes. Already, as will be observed by to day's issue, several efforts for the Belgian fund are announced, the proceeds of which, with perhaps others to follow, could go through the local fund. Many suggestions have been made in the centres as to the best mode of getting funds. Queenscliff could have its o vn way, by either weekly or monthly contributions or a direct donation. We must all surely be in sympathy,. and this is the best and most prac tical way of showing it. John McCullagh and Sons an nounce to-day business as carpent er...
