Ifhy Didn't Get TWell WhichI thought itwas mean That a medical man, With a manner serene, .:Could so piously plan To keep a man tied to his bedroom Beneath a strict quackery ban., Well, I took a slight cold, And then to my bed; I tossed, tumbled, and rolled, With pains in my head. And I guessed it was mean of that doctor To send physic that near made me dead. Every hour by the clock, There came at the door A loud thundering knock; And physic galore Would he left by the doctor's new Buttons,. - 'And I longed that new Buttons to floor!

A Fale., One day in the early Summer, a large and healthy Oyster awoke from a nap, yawned, looked up through the blue Waters, and re marked that he was beginning to feel a little Languid. " "I cannot understand," said he, "how any one can look forward with pleasure to ' a continuance of this Warm Weather." Then he slowly opened his shell, and drew in a draught of water ; but it was so insipid that he shut himself up with asnap, and be gan to bewail his fate in that he'must Now lose Flesh, and :remain Unhappy foremany months.

Odds and Ends. Old English Manners. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 8 October 1887
S Old Englislh .ianeiici's. In the reign of James I. men and women wore looking-glasses publicly-the men,. as brooches or ornaments in their hdts; and the women at their girdles, or on their bosoms, or sometimes like the ladies of our day in the centre of their fans, which were then made of feathers, inserted into silver or ivory tubes. At feasts every guest broght his own knife, and a whetstone was placed behind the door, upon which he sharpened his knife as he en tered. - In 1561 a Dutchman liamed William Boonen, brought the first coach 'int6 Eng land; and it is said the sight of it put; both horses and men into mazement. Somic said in was a crab shell, brought, out of. China; and some imagined it to be one of the Pagan temples in which the cannibals adored their idols. The business of capimaking was ruined in 1591 by the common wearing of hats which then came into vogue.' Smoothing irons are of late invention; in the reign of Queen Elizabeth and James 1. very large stones, inscri...

Boys and Girls. A Child's Pity and Gratitude. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 8 October 1887
£.O 2 au anb girls. A 'i?l? 's Pitiy anid Ga'atitude. There is a rich store of sympathy, which canioot inil expression in words, locked up in the bosomis of children, that completely escapes the notice of the average observer. People are ordiniarilyaccustomcd to call them youn, b7iarbhrians, and to excuse their mobclery of deformity and suffering, on the juvenile inability, to "grap any depths of misery; sympathy being but the reflex func tion of that instinct which leads us to fear and avoid suffering. i But savc in the case of a few sensitive ladies, I hlive never seen such uncalled for sympathy offered without re serve, as has.rwelled up from the heart, and overflown at the' eyes of little children; and it was ibot nalways confined to. those of delicatenurturre nd line nerves. In this ex ception I co?int the little urchins across the street as the best-examp!c; and an in cident I shall relate will explain mry prefer Some tiine ago, as Oharlie was perched on the gate-piist, a well...
