The Sentinel. Saturday, 27th December. NEWS AND NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 27 December 1884
The Sentinel. Saturday, 27th December. NEWS AND NOTES, To make room for Christmas stories, we hold over the leading article. Instead of printing "the news which the Mel- &nbsp; bourne papers refuse," we fill our columns with good edifying tales and sketches; and try to instruct that class of our readers who require it, not by preaching over their heads, but by printing that which will interest and improve. This morning's issue is a fair specimen of what the Sentinel will ve during the coming year, and, we say it with all due modesty, that as household paper it bears favorable comparisons with any other &nbsp; journal published under similar circum- stances. A sailor, named Frank Oslen, was brought up before Mr. Simpson, J.P., Wednesday, for breaking host Sheehan's windows that morning. It was proved that the accused had been quarrelsome and had been put out, and that he then retaliated by smashing the windows. The metal with which the damage was done was exhibited in...
The Elf Swatch. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 27 December 1884
The Elf Swatch. THE tide of the Elder runs out and meets the great Channel. The tide of the Elder and the tide of the Channel &nbsp; meet together, but not in a friendly, way. When a south-wester' is not blowing, a long, thin line of foam--a line some four miles in length--shows where the two tides meet. And this is called the Swatch. But when the wind blows and the sea-horses are galloping over the Channel and shaking their, angry. waves, then the quarrel at the Swatch is worse than ever. The two tides seem to be tearing &nbsp; and rending at each other; they break intoaan angry, choppy sea, which no small craft"can' ride over any more than a little feeble man could press with safety through an Irish' factioil fight. , The thin line of foam is changed, as has been said, to a short, choppy sea; but the sea is a; !great ishroud: ofe foam, beneath which is ; hidden the dead lost in many a wreck, that has, broken on the Swatch sands., ii i7 , 1 Ovr' the Swatch 'is the S...

THE LIBRARY QUESTION. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 27 December 1884
To the Editor. Sir,——I spend the summer months on Queenscliff, and having an interest in the place would like to publish a few remarks on the above. In the first place, the Library Committee should apply to the council (who, I believe, have the power to grant it) for leave to build on the reserve in front of the Grand hotel. The Hon. J. F. Levien will be here on Wednesday, and &nbsp; he should be informed of the whole of the surroundings of the library question, and I believe the consent of his col- &nbsp; leagues could be easily obtained to a &nbsp; public library being erected on the site named. Building operations could be &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; started without waiting for the Ministe- &nbsp; rial confirmation, so long as the con- sent of the Borough Council——in whom &nbsp; the land is vested——was obtained. When once erected, the Government would never think of objecting to the occupancy of this ground by a library. &a...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 27 December 1884
The Silverton journal, the Silver Age, under the heading Town Improve- ments, speaks in praise of the efforts being made to erect hotels in the main street, called Burke. The following ex- tract from the last paper to hand from the silver mines shows that there are many thirsty people there—— " Following the street to the next block we come to De Baun's famed corner, where the proprietor assures us eighteen tons of grog were disposed of over the bar coun- &nbsp; ter within the first four weeks of open- ing. No wonder that a thirst of a raging sort prevails at Silverton, for the heat is said to be at times so great that one hotel-keeper has constructed ——"A- &nbsp; mong other conveniences a cool under- ground saloon, the popular resort during oppressively hot afternoons and even- ings." This accounts for the 18 tons &nbsp; of grog swallowed at De Baun's as the " cool grot" was not then built. What will the Blue Ribbon party say to this? It is said that the bes...
A Skilful Surgical Operation [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 27 December 1884
A Skilful Surgical Operation The American Ambassador at Vienna, Mr Kasson, has lately forwarded to his Govern- ment an interesting account of a remarkable surgical operation, lately performed by Pro- fessor Billroth, of Vienna, which, wonderful to tell, consisted in the removal of portion of the human stomach, involving nearly one &nbsp; &nbsp; third of the organ—and, strange to say, the &nbsp; patient recovered—the only successful ope- ration of the kind ever performed. The &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; disease for which this operation was per- &nbsp; &nbsp; formed was cancer of the stomach, attended with the following symptoms—The appetite &nbsp; is quite poor, There is a peculiar indescrib- able distress in the stomach, a feeling that has been descrbed as a faint " all gone" sensation; a sticky slime collects about the teeth especially in the morning, accompa- nied by an unpleasant taste. Food fails to, &nbsp;...
The Library. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 27 December 1884
The Library. To the Editor Sir.—As a resident of Queenscliff, having some interest in its progress, I beg to enquire what is being done about the erection of a new Library. Here we are after twelve months &nbsp; wrangling in the same position as before, re- taining a building fit for a bush township of 100 inhabitants 30 years ago, and capable of accommodating about 10 or 12 persons at a &nbsp; time. How long is this state of things to con- tinue? Queenscliff boasts of being in advance of surrounding townships, and, in fact, partly looks down upon them, yet these townships &nbsp; are all better provided with public buildings than we are. How is this? It must be owing, so far as the Library is concerned, to the nagging peurilities in which, I am informed, the committee indulge instead of forwarding the real interests of the Institute. I was astounded recently to hear it stated that the committee had no powder to do anything with respect to the building. If so ...

A Far-Seeing Druggist. She had promised him she would mend the lining of his overcoat if he would wear another and leave that at home. Axid as he had left it she took it from the hall rack, and carried it into her sewing-room:. She was Mrs. Wilton, and had been mar ried' five years, and never, never, never in all that time had had one unhappy moment. Mr. Wilton had been very kind and gener ous, and never made her jealous. She often said she was the happiest woman living. ;*Now,' as she looked at the lining, and com pared the silk with which 'she was about to mend the torn portion,, she was thinking these thoughts.

Two Christmas Geese. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 3 January 1885
Two Chriistmas Geese. S.-L:r:.::- B. A. J. KELSALL. . CHAPTER I. i ?was Christmas time in Humsley's Lane, Sabout as bad-looking and foul-smelling a den as ever formed the pleasant scene of a morn ing ramble of that worthy body of morning ramblers, "The Back Slums Committee ;" a thoroughfare whose appearance at first sight would most naturally impress visitors with the idea that the locality was a sort of branch establishment of that subternal domain where, we have every reason to be lieve Christmas is a thing unknown ; a sup position likely to be shaken by one fact alone, namely, the celestial tone and nation ality of the population. Yes ; it was Christmas here, itwas Christ mas everywhere. The gladsome season--or in some places the season alone, without the gladness-had managed to force its way in, and make its presence felt everywhere, wel come or not. It was welcome at the humble domicile of the Bullens. I won't stop to introduce the Bullens at too great a length individually, as...
A Dog Called "Joe." CHAPTER I.—JOE IS SENTENCED TO DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 3 January 1885
A Dog Called "Joe." CHAPTER I.-JOE IS SENTENUED TO DEATH, There isn't no use in yer fondling that ere dog now, Susie, for I have quite made Sup my mind." These words were addressed by a man with a very red face to a little, slight, dark. eyed girl. They were both in a small, close parlor in a back street in London. The girl was half sitting, half lying on a sofa formed of two chairs drawn together. The man, between the whiffs of his pipe, jerked out his angry words. A dog, partly retriever, partly Newfoundland, sat close to the girl, so close that her thin white hand rested pn his shiny head ; so close that his brown and loving eyes could look often right into hers.-- The man was red and . wasted from illness and s:ffer. a rmag:icen:t cre?tune, tawy min r, with an exquisitely silky and curly coat. He was evidently a king among his kind, and as evidently the one joy of this little sick girl's life. " Poor Joe ! He don't eat so very much, father," she said rapidly, rising her timid an...

Without: replying, the farmer, a few days after, called to settle the matter, and presented himself before the dealer without giving his name. The porcine contractor failed to recognise him, as the business Ihad been transacted by letter, and he had niever seen the farmer before. " Can you sell ime'a few pounds of inferior pork 1 asked he of the de'aler. "'I want someto salt down for the harvest hands." "Don't keep' such a thing," was the reply. " Haven't you any at all?" was thenext question. "None at all," said the dealer, impatiently.. " Well, last week, for instanice, there 'was a lot of in ferior stuff in the market. Didn't you happen to get hold of any of it?" persisted the farmer. " I never get taken in," he repli...
