THE QUEEN HER OWN BEDMAKER. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 23 February 1884

THE QUEEN HER OWN BEDMAKER.-Ac. cording to a weekly contempo; ary, "it miy not *be.generally known that the Queen invariably takes her own. bed with her wherever she may be travelling.'' People would infer from this statement that her Majesty's "own bed" forms a part of the Royal baggage. The Queen aiways sleeps in beds of pr:cisely the slnme pattern, and made up in exactly the same way. They are all manufactured at Windsor Castle, and there is one with accessories at each Royal residence in this country, at the Villa Hohen. hle at Baden, at Rosnau, near Coburg, and on board the Victoria and Albert. When the Queen pays a visit, or goes abroad, a bed of the same pattern is made and despatched from Windsor in advance, to be in readiness for her.' One was sent last year to Mentone, and th'ee years earlier another went to Baveno. At Dunrobih, Eloors, and other country houses at which the Queen has been a guest, her special bed has usually been left as a memento of the Royal visit. Jo0SH...

THE COLONEL'S BONE [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 23 February 1884

THE COLONEL'S BONE, , You want to know, sir, why you cannot sit in that box until half-past seven o'clock this evening, when you've sat in it every evening from seven till eight for the last twelve months. Well, sir, there's a reason. You began to come to this house on New Year's Day, and this is Christmas Eve-so you have never been here on Christmas Eve, and if you had you could not have sat in that box until half-past seven o'clock-ay, and if you had come here any Christmas Eve for the last five.years, since I came to this house, you could not have sat there till then. And let me tell you more-if you were to come for the next twenty years, you could not sit there unless we knew for certain that-the colonel was dead-then I'm free, or whoever keeps. this house; but 'tis as much° as-the. lease is worth to let man, woman, or child sit in that seat, or touch the turkey that is lut on the table there, until half-past seven o'clock on this particular night."'

SOME PEOPLE AND SOME OTHER PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 23 February 1884

SOME PEOPLE AND SOME OTHER PEOPLE. The Reverend John Peter Paul Smith was a Methodist minister. He had been several years in the itineracy, and had saved five hundred dollars of his meagre salary. With this sum snugly deposited in the bank, Mr. Smith began to indulge dreams of matrimony, and no right-minded person couldblame him for it. The future Mrs. Smith had been duly selected, and it was decided that they should be married just before Conference, and take their wedding trip in an excursion to that meeting. Let it not be insinuated that the Rev. John Peter Paul was influenced in this decision by a laudable desire to save ex pense. The newly.wedded p'ir were very independent in their feeling,-as they well might be .. ith five hundred dollars in bank -and they proceeded at once to the best hotelin the town, and paid their bills with out even hinting at reduction on the score of the ministerial profession. Mrs. Smith had never attended Confer ence before, and she enjoyed it amazing...

ACTING IN EARNEST.. It is well known that. during those: hours which the late Mr. Charles Dickens devoted to literary labouir, so thoroughly did he throw himself into the different characters of hise.works; that':for the time being he :thought, plotted, spoke,, and acted" only in, their respective persons, forgetting altogether that he- was either 'a novelist or Charles Dickenis, orlindeed ahy,other than that par ticular individual whose portrait had so long by-mental. intercourse become indelibly im plante'd on'-hisi' 'ind "' To` the habitual practice of this trait; therefore, a'very large proportion.of his success is to be attributed; for it must always be maintained that in the truthful delineation of. character--aniid each' individiial 'character embodies :a variety of tlhe]i'uman" passionl all the- genius oftan exceptionally;qualified novelist or dramatist is to be traced; and he who can so com 'pletely identify himself with the creations of his imnagination -as- to sink' in'th...

Agricultural, &q. DISEASES AMONGST FRUIT TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 23 February 1884

DISEASES AMONGST FRUIT TREES. The alarming increase of diseases amongst our fruit trees during the last few years is a matter that ought to be taken seriously into 'onsideration by every grpwer and by every other person interested ii} the most import ant industry of fruit cultý?ation. Itit weak and childish to quietly fold the hands and to complain, it is equally weak to attribute the diseases to causes over which we have no control, to say that they are occasioned by "climate" intluences, to "decay of the species, exhaustion of the soil, weakness in the trees, &e." We know through the in quiries into the matter and the consequent revelations made by scientific men, that most of the diseases in our orchards are caused through attacks by insects or fungi, many of which are similar to those affecting trees in other countries, and which most probably have been imported along with trees and plants from those countries. Very often it happens that a comparatively harmless insect o...

For the Ladies. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 23 February 1884

A farmer sues for a divorce on the ground that his wife can't chop the amount of wood that she boasted about before marriage. Fashionable young people are calling upon somebody to invent a new dance. Suppose somebody invent one wherein the young lady dances around the house and looks after things. Says; a 'musical .critic :-" I am always pleased when I see a young lady devote her self to the study of the harp or the violon Ell:.-It°is oe less to play the 'piiaib6o."' A very neat definition of the word " sus picion" was that given by a jealous husband ý -"a suspicion is a feeling that impels.you to try and find out something which you don't wish to know." After waiting four years, a Michigan lover finally popped the question, and the girl answered, " Of course, I'll have you; why, you' fool, you, we could have been married three years and eleven months ago."

For the Ladies. "OBEY." [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 23 February 1884

We referred the other day to the growing disuse of the word "obey" in the marriage ceremony. We now learn that the Canadian Methodists, boldly leading the van, bydeliber. ate vote in full Conference assembled, have formally struck the obnoxious word out of the service. Ladies of a rebellious disposition, but with tender consciencci, will now find a haven in Canada. As for the rest of the sex, they. will probably continue to do as they have done since the marriage formula was first drawn up, that is to say, they will promise to ob-y in church and continue to do as they ple;se at home.

Fahil, and lived on, .the island of Naft Arti (Arti-Dongolawi for "island"). This island lies east of and op. posite to Ordi, the native name for the capital of Dongola.

THE BRIDE OF A DAY. CHAPTER THE FIRST. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 23 February 1884

THE BRIDE OF A DAY. CHAPT?R THE FIST. "But, remember, it may be bought too dear." These words were ringing in the ears of EleanorLascelles as slowly, but "with light upon her face as of a'bride," she walked along the shore of the'beautiful lagoon that, strewn with green isiands, and protected from the onslaught of the sea by the long low bank of the Lido, separates Venice from the Adriatic. She was very, very happy that day, for love, which, though felt and known, was as yet unspoken, lay trembling at her heart; and she had come out alone into the morning stillness to consider how that which still was only a dream might be brought; into the world of reality. Then came that :voice of warning, "It may be bought too dear." It was not pleasant, and she tried to banish it ; but, with that persistency which often belongs to disagreeable modes of think. ing, it followed her, and at last, in her own despite, she found herself recalling the cir cumstances under which the 'words had been spok...

MRS. OR MISS? [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 23 February 1884

MRS. OR MISS? How shall a person address a young lady whose name he does not know? To say "Miss" is'abominable ; to say "Madam" if she is very young, is absurd ; to borrow " Madamoi selle" would be an affectation. The language absolutely provides nothing appropriate in such an emergency, unless a word fairly obsolete in this use is revived-the word lady. We occasionally hear common people ad dress a lady simply as lady, while the better informed, as they are supposed to be, stumble at "Madam," or are guilty of the impropriety of saying "Miss." Few readers are probably aware how frequently the word "lady" is used in Shakspeare, not merely as a title, but as a designation. To revive it as an appropriate and specific title for a, gentlewoman would be exceeding convenient. It belongs as rightly to the young as to the old, to the single as to the married, and could be extended to all ranks above the lowest. Perhaps it would not do to use it as a prefix to the name, especially so long as ...
