How Would Sal Look. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 3 March 1882

How Would Sal Look. NOT long; ago a young- man in Carson got married and started for California with his young wife. His father bade him good-bye and gave him the patei nil blessing-. u My son, said the aged sir, shaking with emo tion, etc, "remember these words if you never see me again : Never go into a place where you would not take your wife." Last week the old man went down to visit them. He proposed a bear hunt, and they were fortunate enough to track a grizzly to his lair among some of the jboulders in the chaparral. As the two approached, the bear roused up and .sent forth a growl of defiance which shook the tree. "Go in there and kill 'im," said the old man, excitedly. " Count me out," s&id the son. " Have I crossed the seas and settled in America to raise a coward ?" shouted the .father, brandishing his gun. " I recollect your advice when I left Carson," was th& reply. " Didn't you tell me never to go where I couldn't take my wife ? Now how would Sal look i...

ODDS and ENDS. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 3 March 1882

OUDS and ENDS TiiERjpis iri India a peculiar tribe, which has preserved an extreme primitiveness. The people are called Leaf Watrers, because they wear the costume of Adam and Eve be fore the fall j or, more strictly speaking", they did so until the English persuaded them to adopt cloth. In 1871 the English officers called together the clan, and, after a speech, handed out strips of cotton lor the women to put on. They then passed in sin gle file to the number,,of 1,900 before them, s&ade! obeisance to him, and were afterwards marked on the forehead with vermillion, as a sign of entering into civilised society.

Brutality to a Mother-in-law. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 3 March 1882

Brutality to a Mother-in-law. MRS. MCSPILLKINS, one of the most fash ionable ladies in Austin, treats her husband's aged mother with the greatest harshness imaginable. Not long since Mrs. McSpill kins was taken sick, and during her illness her mother-in-law showed her every possible kindness and attention, even to the detriment of her own health but all this kindness on the part of the genial old mother-in-law did not soften Mrs. McSpillkin's stony heart. JDay-before yesterday, Mrs. McSpillkins was able to get up, and she asked the family physician if the bed linen could be changed.. The doctor said it could, but before occupy ing the bed again it would be prudent to have the bed warmed, adding that animal heat was the healthiest. "Animal heat," exclaimed Mrs.McSpill kins, "why I'll make my old mother-in-law get into the bed and warm it for me, . She is a regular old beast." -Tex*s Siffing-s.

Almost a Panic. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 3 March 1882

Almost a Panic. THE Standard thus describes how a pair of Danbury ankles affected Bridgeport: This morning a young lady quite uninten tionally came very near causing a panic near the lower end of the station. She was cross ing diagonally from the Atlantic House to the Rosedale dock when a wild gust of wind lifted her dress so as to expose a very pretty pair of ankles. Iier dress remained caught up whil,e she continued skipping over the mud puddles. An engineer, who until that moment had been oiling his engine, stopped, the firenpan censed poking his tire, the la^ gage-men stopped loading the baggage, the brakemejn stopped braking, city-express men ceased ^o look for customers, the flagman dropped his flag, hackmen fell off their boxes, cftrmen halted, a horse at the drinking foun tain stopped, flattened noses were at all the plate-glass windows in the neighbourhood, and evevvthing seemed tobe at stand-still. Just at that moment the owner of the afore said ankles disappeared bfehind ...

A Thrilling Adventure. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 3 March 1882

A Thrilling1 Adventure. A FRIGHTFUL encounter with a wild cat. was had last nig-lit about midnight at the Pro' Bono Publico saloon, on Mill street, by Mr. Charles Baxter. The ferocious beast was met in the cellar by Mr. Baxter, who had descended this apartment for the pur-? pose of getting some blackberry brandy. He had a light in his hand, but a gust of wind extinguished it, and almost simultaneously Charlie lieard a hissing noise- and felt>an animal's .claws lacerating the flesh of his face and neck. The'attack was so sudden and unexpected that Charlie was for a time overcome. He soon recovered, and a ter^ rible conflict ensued in the dark. The man was not lon^ in realizing his desperate situa tion. He clutched his assailant with both hands in a deathlike grip, and commenced ascending the steps. When near the top the animal wrenched itself from his hold ana ran rapijdly up the steps into a small apart ment in. the rear portion of the saloon known as the lamproom. Charlie called...

The History of Govett's Leap [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 3 March 1882

The History of' Govett's Leap. By Z.   About 16 years ago, the crew of the good,   ship. "Merry Don," were busy heaving up, an anchor, while the humble writer of these 'lines imagined she was heaving not an   anchor, but something worse up.     That ship was bound for Melbourne, and in due course arrived there, having on board     as a steerage passenger yours truly. Of course I did the same as other new chums, spent my money first and then looked for a job. I had a long weary look. I   may mention, by the way, that it is all hum- bug about Melbourne being paved with gold, it's nothing of the sort as I can testify. Things got bad with me after a time and then I persuaded a fellow lodger to initiate me into the mysteries of rolling up and carrying my blanket, vulgarly called " humping your drum," and started up country to look for a job. It's terribly like hard work that same looki...

A Remarkable Baby. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 3 March 1882

A Remarkable Baby. IN the family of Jacob S. Olinger, this city is a child, now past twelve years of age, which has not grown perceptibly since boy, hood. Thursday evening last the child be- gan to cry, and refused to be quieted by ordinary means. An investigation of its clothing was made, and in passing her hand over the child's body the mother received a sharp scratch from a sharp object protruding from the right side, about mid-way between the shoulder and hip. The object was noth- ing less than a darning needle, which was at once drawn and the sufferer relieved* The needle was not corroded in the least, but had turned black, in color. This cir cumstance recalled to the minds of the par- ents a serious crying spell which the child had when about two months old, and sub- sequent fits of wailing which they could never account for, and they now conclude that in some unaccountable manner the darning needle must at that time have been thrust into the child's body. This-idea is strengt...
