In Divers Places. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 14 February 1885
.In Divers Places. K . , BY A SEA.SCARER. Ti: he straigest of the numberless stories I have heard from old divers was the relation of what happened to a man whose timie, he. ,said, had been much of it spent under.water. We met on Christmas Eve, during a journey in a second-class carriage, and the story he told me and the only two other passengers in the compartment appears incredible I There are, however, the two other persons to vouch for the. facts, only, unfortunately, as they were perfect strangers to me, I have not their'; names and addresses. But as he offered to take me down to the spot and show me what he had seen-supposing the circumstances to remain the same-I can hardly dare to cast discredit on his experience, particulaily as I declined to take the measure he proposed to assure me of the truth of his story. I had better give it in his own words .." 'Twern't long sipce," said he,' "I were ' engaged to'go down to a ship what was said :to have a lot of old silver dollars ab...
The Original of Bret Harte's "Yuba Bill." [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 14 February 1885
The Original of Bret Harte's " Yuba Bill." There is a man in this city that claims to be Bret Harte's original "Yuba Bill." His name is Seely, his occupation is a truck driver, and whether the novelist has drawn on him for matter or not, lie is a singular personage. I knew him intimately, almost a score of years ago, and his family, which consisted of a wife, a son who has been for many years in Buenos Ayres, South Amer. ica, and two daughters. Almost any evening he can be found, in a certain beer-saloon in Hudson street, puffing awaysat a clay-pipe in an advanced state of color, and relating to a choice circle, of friends and admirers some episode of his checkered career. Physically, he is a fine specimen of 'manhood. On an enormous pair of shoulders rests a well shaped head with a short neck. The face is bronzed by exposure, and his huge moustache is coal black and wiry. There is a wild, at times savage glare in the large black eyes, which are like those of a man accustomed to loo...

The Sentinel. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 1885 [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 14 February 1885
ci~hg tntt. inc SATU BDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 1885 A MOVEMENT is on foot to inaugurate an excursion' df Queenscliff residents to the city of 'Ballarat. This was spoken of last year, but owing to the comparatively had season, the matter was' allowed to' drop. AK business on the Cliff has been somewhat brisker this year, it is to be hoped: that the matter will be warmly taken up' and carried' to a successful issue. . The point is, how are we to stairt? It, has been suggested that the local Board of Advice move first in the miatter, and arrange for the school chil dren to have the benefit of the trip. This, we 'think, will, be the key to the success of the movement. A similar number of gentlemen outside the board might theni be appointed to co-operate to "work the, matter, up amongst the outside puhlic. who, w e feel certain, will heartily join in the movement. ,Drys dale :and Portarlingtoiii might also, be asked to join in the movement, with? a view to making the exeursion a success.

An Alarming Disease Afflict i g a Numerous Class. The disease commences with a slight de angement of the stomach, but if neglected, it in time involves the whole frame, em bracing the kidneys, liver, paiicreas, and, in fact, the entire glandular system, and the afflicted drags out a mi3erable existence until death gives relief from suffering. The disease is often mistaken for other com plaints; but if the reader will ask himself the following questions, he will be able to determine whether he himself is one of the afflicted-Have I distress, pain, or difficulty, in breathing after eating ? Is there a dull, heavy feeling, attended by drowsiness? Have the eyes a yellow tinge? Does a thick, sticky, mucous gather about the gums and teeth in the mornings, accompanied by a disagreeable taste ? Is the tongue coated ? Is there pains in the side and.back? Is there a fulness about the right side as if the liver were enlarging ? Is there costiveness? Is there vertigo or dizziness when rising su...
CROSSING WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 14 February 1885
CROSSING WHEAT. :' We have alway's believed until lately that 'diflereiit'varieties of wheat, though growing side by 'side, 'could inot cross. During the past few days,, while crossingpour wheats of this season, we have had occasion to'chaige our opinion. In a number of cases' we have seen the floral en. velopes' gaping apart, while the stig~iasseem- to ,be ripe and the stamens were freely shedding theii pollen. There can be very little doubtthat the wheat flower is self-fertilizing; still, in such 'instances as those mentioned above, it is possible for pollen from other plants to be carried by the wind to the open flowers, where foreign pollen .:iould' perhaps prove as potent as their own. Generally speaking, anthers of the flowers of 'wheat,have discharged their pollen and the ovules have been fertilized before they'appear outside of' the glumes and palets. :Then wheat is said to-bd in bloom. In reality the blooming period has passed. In rye it-is someivhat different. The anthers,...

It would eost very little to cart a few loads of salt water to the above namied 'places, and flush the drains . say three times a :'week..

It now appedrs that it is also,ýuseful, ini killing flies, multitudes of which are ,found onoi under the plants. If it proves -so valuable as an insecti cide in killing flies and grasshoppers, it is worthy .of attention,to test the plant an an exterminator of in?ths and "all kinds of noxious insects in a fruit orchard.

Cabby's "Set To" at an Episcopal "Swell. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 14 February 1885
Cabby's " Set To '' at an Episcopal " Swell. The Marquis of Waterford was 'driven home one night very late, or rathervery early in the morning, by a stalwart and swellish looking cabman. He occupied at the .time the Archbishop of Armagli's house in. Charles Street, St. James's Square, during his uncle's temporary absence' from; town. Jumping from the hansom, he was soon admitted by the hall-porter, who had waited up for him, and whom he ordered 't give the driver half a-sovereign, and dismiss him. Cabby, so far, from being satisfied, expressed' himself: abusively to the servant, flinging, lhin bck; the half-sovereign, although it appeared that he had been engaged by the 'marquis' onlyl something under an, hour, and telling' him that' in offering him less than a sovereigin his master was anything but a nobleman-and a gentleman. Finally, he declared in a loud voice outside the hall-door'that'he'shliuldnot' think of taking less than 'a sovei'ign, and that 'he'd have it, too. The inisol...
The Masher Twenty Years Ago. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 14 February 1885
The Masher Twenty Years Ago. Fifteen or -twenty years ago; the, stage masher was as big a nuisance as hle is to-day, although not so numerous, as his opportuni-. ties were not so great. I well remember one who. was one night made the victim of several practical jokes, gotten -up at the hands of " Props," and aided and abetted by the stage hands. The masher was the son of a wealthy lawyer, and was dead gone on pretty little Katie Mayhew, then in her teens. He was heartily, despised- by all-the- "supers," not because he was dangling on the skirts of Miss Mayhew, for we were all in love with her, but because he, wore such,.nice.clothes and was abli to purchase jewellery and bouquets, and we were not. I think one of the happiest moments of my boyhood's days was when she asked me to accompany her home after the first act one night, she being indisposed; I must have grown at least'two inches that night. As I hard previousl?y remarked, this maisher was despised by us, and most of all by Pr...
Drawing an Audience. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 14 February 1885
It was about'thd year 1835, when a pianist (call hiii Liszt, if you like) was giving a round of concerts in the provinces. At the little town of X..he experienced great dis-; appointment, amountihg almost to disgrace.' Only.seven'persons* assembled to hear him. However,:'not in the least disturbed at the sight of so many empty benches, he addressed, his public as follows : "Ladies and gentle men,-I feel greatly honored by your pre-: sence. But this hall is not comfortable; the atmosphere is stifling. If you have no objection I will have the piano removed to my hotel, and there I shall be happy to exe-' cute the programme, as announced, before your. select company."' The proposal was accepted, and Liszt regaled his guests not. only with music, but with an excellent sup-. per and iced champagne into the bargain. Next day a placard posted on every wall` announced a second concert. What a rush there was this time I Every seat was taken ,by an eager and expectdnt crowd. LBut now the arti...

A Bachelor's Dilemma. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 14 February 1885
A Bachelor's Dilemma. Brown was abachelor and a turncoat. No matter which of the two great partieshe had turned from-sufficient to know that he was a turncoat and he was turning his attentionr in the direction of a new party. Mrs. Jones: was a widow who had wept at the tombs of two husbands, and popular report said was not averse to try a third. Brown had visited the widow often, but had never made any approach to a proposal, greatly to her dis satisfaction, for Brown was considered an eligible party himself. .--'-.` `--''''" . One day they were sitting together on the widow's front porch, and silence had reigned for some'little time, each being absorbed in thought. Brown's mind 'was running, on politics and.the widow was wondering why he didn't pr6pose. At length Brown turned to the wido' and said "IMrs. Jones, would you object to a third party ?" The.widow gave a great start, for this was certainly a great start towards the long looked-for declaration, and she stammered, " Why, re...
All Smoke. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 14 February 1885
A~ll Smoke. The excessive use of tobacco causes in sanity, but seldom where the victim woule. not become insane anyhow. Poets are nearly all smokers. This doesn't necessarily indicate there is anything wrong with tobacco, however. It is injurious for a man to smoke who al ways borrows a cigar and a match. The injury is confined principally to his friends. Sir Walter Raleigh once asked Queen Elizabeth to smoke his pipe. She tried it once, and only once. It is a significant fact that inside of a year she ordered his head to be cut off. AmurathIV. of Turkey made the offence of smoking punishable by death. As nearly all the officials of the land smoked he was fur nished an excuse for chopping their heads off, which was much cheaper than hiring an as sa,'sin-to put them out of the way.

- .He :Wasn't :Her P:'a S'young woman went to the' station to meet, her father. As the train came !in she ,saw a middle-aged man who resembled: her parental relative, and she rushed :into his arms, huddled down on his bosom, kissed him on themouth, the ear, the chin, and all over his patent celluloid. It was not her father, but a middle-aged traveller for a tobacco house. He took a long breath, and looked around at some other travellers and winked, as much as to say : " Oh, I'm such aiminisher !' Of course the scene could not last for ever, though h!e wished it could. After 'a spasmodic hug she looked up in his face and shrieked, " You are not my pa !" He said she was right. She asked his -pardon, and he told her not to mention it. " We public men should always hold our selves in readiness to support those who need it." She smiled a sweet, sad, blushing smile, and went out into the wide world, while. the traveller walked to the hotel with theothers. They asked him if it didn't make ...
