SLEEPLESSNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 23 February 1884

"SLEEPLESSNESS. Nothing lowers the vital forces more than sleeplessness, which may generally be traced to one of four causations : (1) Mental worry; (2) `a disordered stomni'ch-; (3) excessive muscular exertion; (4) functional or organic disease. Loss of sleep is, when rightly un derstood, one of Nature's premonitory warn ings that some of her physical laws have been violated. When we are troubled with sleeplessness, it becomes requisite to discover the primary cause, and then to adopt suitable means for its removal. When insomnia, or sleeplessness, arises fidom mental worry, it is indeed most difficult to remove.. The best and perhaps only effectual plan under such circumstances is a spare diet, combined with plenty of outdoor exercise, thus to draw the blood from the brain; for it is as impossi ble for the brain to continue active without a due circulation of blood, as it is for an engine to move without steam. When suffering ifrom iVýental distress, a hot soap-bath before retirin...

"Pa and ma are good friends now, He says he has 'discovered that my heart is in the right place, and that I am going to amount to something, and he has forgiven every foolish thing Iever did to him, and says for me to come to him any time when I want advice or money to do good with, Why, when pa found I had pawned my watch to get money to buy medicine for the old, woman, he we...

CHAPTER THE SECOND. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 23 February 1884

CHAPTER T.E SECOND. Marietta, Eleanor Lascelles' travelling companion, was just dressed. She was a fair-haired, blue-eyed girl, with light, agile figure, and a complexion like milk and roses, and she looked as pretty as a poem in her bright morning toilette, every article of which had been a gift from Eleanor. The two were on the best of terms, and their manners one towards the other were more like those of sisters than of employer and employed. When, therefore, Eleanor, look ing deadly pale, staggered rather than walked into Marietta's room, the young girl rushed up to her with an anxious face. "Darling," she cried, "how ill you look ! You have been over-tiring yourself." "No, Marietta, I am not in the least tired. Take no notice of me, if you please. There I that will do. I must really beg of you not to be so impulsive. It may be attractive, but it does not suit.everybody." " Eleanor !" criedthe young girl. "And that is another thing,' said Miss Lascelles coldly.. ".You should rem...

THEY DO THEIR OWN KISSING. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 23 February 1884

THEY DO THEIR OWN KISSING. A very exacting landlord makes his tenants " come to time" on the day the rent becomes due, and will only relax his stern decrees when a handsome woman is in question. 'Not long since he called for his rent on a very worthy mechanic, who, by the way, rejoices. in the possession of a very. pretty little wife. The husband was not at home when Shylock called, and he was enchanted with the pretty little wife of the tenant. She could not liquidate the amount due; but the landlord becoming really enamoured, told her he would give her a receipt in full for just one kiss. "Sir," said she, "myself and husband are very poor perhaps we cannot pay our rent; butI tell you, sir,we're not so poor that we can't do our own kissing." , .

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

" OBu."! 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 conscienc?i, 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 wasfirst drawn up, that is to say, they will promise to obey in church and continue to do as they ple;ase at home.

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

DISEASES AM?IONGT. 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 'consideration by every.grower and by every other person interested in the most import ant industry of fruit cult?ation. It is 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" influences, to "decay of the species, exhaustion of the soil, weakness in the trees, &c." 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 insec...

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

SOME PEOPLE WAND 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 b .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...

SINGULAR CASE OF HYSTERIA. Felida X, an hysterical young woman diving:in the s'uth ofFrq~ice,'became subject, in 1856, to accesses of what was at first:con sidered as somnimbulism--states lasting a feiw minutes drhoiirs, 'of which she: retained'no consciousness on regainiing lier normnal"cordi tion.

The second state gradually grew upon her till it has become ilmost continuous; her relapses into the first state occupying' perhaps n6t morei than one day per rmonth.
