TWO SUNSETS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 23 February 1884
TWO SUNSETS. Two sunsets in the self-same year.; Around the self-same sight The rich ripe earth, the great blue sea, Allbathed in lustrous light ,. The ships were sailing out and home, A.white-winged fairy fleet; .. The wavelets danced ashore in glee To kiss my darlings feet. The sun is shining now, I know, The sea and earth are bright ;. But ouit of earth and sda and light Is faded all the light. ' . The iails hang listless on the mast SThe sea niakes endless moan,; ThIi stifsets on a grMsless grave, SAnd I w6Ilk here aloie.

SATURDAY, 23RD FEBRUARY, 1884. IT .is evident that the time has come for a movement to''. be made regarding the new jetty, for which a sum of, 3000 is on.,.the estimates for `the current yea'r;- inine months :of'it:- have -elapsed and. nothihg is done. We believe that the attedtion of the Minister of Mines, who is our member, has been called to this matter, and we look to him in great measure to. see that the vote does not lapse. We have- borne the_ present jetty, or rather it has b?orne us, long enough; and think the,: determination to be wise not to spend any more 'money over it: The site, even if the.jetty-be extended, is not suitable for vessels~ of large draught, as the water does not deepen rapidly in that' direction. But' the sits for the new railway pier has, we believe, been opportunely chosen' in this respect, as 'g.od depth of -water can be reached from that point not far from the shore. Attention is directed to the importance of the work; The facilities for excursion ste...

" TO BE CALL!ED FOR" I don't know why I should keep this story to myself-to myself and second self, more correctly, speaking-any longer.-' ' There's, nigh upon a score of years between the'time' of its happening and now, and all the harm the telling of it might have done is as dead and gone as uncle Samuel is. But to begin at the beginning-which is ship shape and suits me, being an orderly man always. My uncle Samuel was my guardian, -my father'and: uncle rolled into one,: and took' Dare of me after my own father-was drowned. My mother was uncle Samuel's sister, and became-his housekeeper after father's death; attended to her brother's business when he was out at sea, put up with all his bade tempers when he was on shore, and was "a peifect slave to the old brute," it:was said in Deal, though my mother was onlya hard working woman, and Sam Nangle was not exactly'a brute; Hewever, m'ny, mother did not live to'see her brother at his worst thatfwas in the;latter' years:of his life, whe...

SINGULAR CASE OF HYSTERIA. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 23 February 1884
SINGULAR CASE OF HYSTERIA. Felida X, an hysterical young woman diving in the sbuth of"Frtriae,'became suIrect, in 1856, to accesses of what was at first con sidered as somnambulism-states lasting a few minutes or hours, 'of which she retained no consciousness on:regaiiing lier normal"condi tion. Gradually the duration of these acces. ses increased, they becamie: considerable enough to rank as :a "second; stte," and it was observed that in this second state Felida perfectly remembered the first state-in the first or normal state she forgot the second. The second state gradually grew upon her till it has become almost continuousi her relapses into the first state occupying perhaps not mdre than one day per month. 2 And it is remarkable that her second state is in all respects "superior to her first.. Her health is better; her character' is mnre cheerful and evan; h'er"-inemory 'perfect for both states. She is aware of her occasional entry into her first state, but she cotriideii that ...

Good Thoughts. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 23 February 1884
To rule one's anger is well; to prevent it is better? Censure is.the tax a man pays to the public for being eminent. - Disparage and depreciate no one; an insect has feeling and an atom a shadow. He is the best accountant who can cast up correctly:the sum of his own errors. Experience joined to common sense, To mortals is'providence. Riches to all are no more possible than a valley :where there is no higher ground on either side.': We should never make enemies, if for no other reason, because it is so hard to behave toward them as we ought. " . Singular that the word miser, so often ex pressive of one' who is rich, should in its origin signify that one is miserable. There is nothing more universally com mended than a fine day;. the. reason is that people can commend it without envy. A grateful mind By owing owes not, but still pays ; at once' Indebted and discharged.

"LET US ALONE." The squire, having a visitor on business was very much annoyed to be interrupted by his wife, who came to ask him what he wanted for dinner. "Go away I let us alone," impatiently said the squire. Business detained his friend till dinner time, and the squire urged him to remain. The squire was a generous provider, proud of his table ; and he complacently escorted him to a seat. A little to the surprise of both, they saw nothing on the board but a huge dish of salad,. which the good wife began quiety to serve up. " My dear," said the squire, " where are the meats ?"
