Poetry. A Sea-Grave. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 17 December 1887

A Sca-Graec. Yea, rock him gently inthine arms, O deepl No nobler heart was over hushed to rest Upon the chill, soft pillow'of thy breast No truer eyes didst thou o'er kiss to sleep. While o'er his couch, the wrathful billows S leap, An ' d mighty winds roar fron the darkened w'est, Still may his head on thy cool weeds be pressed, Far down where thou dost endless silence keep.. Oh, when, slow moving through thy spaces dim, Some scaly monster seiks its coral cave, And pausing. o'er the sleeper, stares with grim, " Dull eyes ampmentdownward through the wave Then, let thy pale, green shadows curtain him, A-nd swaying seanflowers hide his lonely grave. -James B. Kenyai

THE CADET'S ENCAMPMENT [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 17 December 1887

THE CADET'S ENCAMPMENT The first encampment of the Cadets of this colony was held at Elsternwiclt, and commenced on Wednesday evening, and will be brought to a close this evening. The idea of the establishment of Cadet Corps owes its origin to the lute Minister of Defence, the Hon. Lieutenant-Colonel Sargood, M.L.O., and this encampment, the first that has been pitched in Australia, marks in a wonderful manner the progress of the system. When 't was first mooted that these corps should be formed they were reckoned by a large number of persons as the outcome of a fad. but. now the excel lent effect of the training and discipline upon the youths. are admitted on all hands. and the system has now become a strongly established and highly popular institution. The various cadet corps now represent a strength of some 3,500 boys, and the most of these for some time past have had the op portunity on special occasions of going through both battalion exercises and brigade movements.

How to Eat Wisely. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 17 December 1887

Ilow to Eat Wisely. "As a universal rule in health," says a recent writer, "and vith very rare exceptions in disease, that is best to be eaten which the appetite craves or the taste relishes. Persons rarely err in the quality of food eaten. Nature's instincts are the wisest regulators in this respect. The great eources of mischief from eating are three-quantity, frequency, rapidity-and from these come the horrible dyspepsias which make human life a burden, a torture, a living death. By eating fast, the stomach, like a bottle being filled through a funnel, is full and overflowing before we know it. But the most important reason is, the food is swallowed before time has been allowed to''divide'it ifn sufiliently'sifiall 'pieces with the teeth;, fori like iced in a tumblerof water, the smaller the bits are the sooner they are disolved.:It has been'seen with the naked eye that if solid food is cut up in pieces small as ialf a pen, it digests almost as soon, without being shewed at all, ...

Ballade of Asphodel. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 17 December 1887

.Ballade of Asphodel. Now who will thread the winding way Afar from fervid summer heat, Beyond the sunshafts of the day, BeyoTd the blast of winter sleet ? In the green twilight, dimly sweet, Of poplar shades the Shadows dwell, Who found erowhile a fair retreat Along the mead of asphodel. There death and birth are one, they say, Those lowlands hear no yellow wheat, No sound doth rise of mortal fray, Of lowing herds, of flocks that bleat; Nor wind nor rain doth blow nor bcat, Nor shrieketh sword, nor tolleth bell, But lovers each the other greet Along the mead of asphodel. I would that there my soul might stray, I would my phantom, fair and fleet, Might leave the murmur of the street, Nor with half-hearted prayer entreat, The.half believed.in Clods; too well I know the name I shall repeat Along thu mead of asphodel, EINVOY. Queen Prosperine, at whoso whito feet In lifo my love I may not tell,, ,. ., , Wilt give mo welcomo when we meet SAlong the mend of asphodel

OUR OPEN COLUMN. TO THE EDITOR OF THE LEADER. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 17 December 1887

OUR OPEN COLUMN. TO THE EDITOR OF THE LEADER. Sir,-Observing with what vigor and zeal you assist any measure that is for public good, I take the liberty of trespassing on your kindaess by asking for the insertion of this in your next issue, calling attention to an institution that is causing annoyance and a nuisance to the community. I allude to the " Hurlingham Racecourse," which, for the last three or four months, has held meetings on an average of one a fortnight, under the rules and patronage of the V.R.O., and, according to the annexed paragraph taken from the Argus of the 12th inst., we are threatened with what is likely to prove a most objectionable nuisance, and a disgrace to the district. I imagine the most infatuated advocate of horse racing would have a hard matter to prove that the encouragement of such enterprises elevates racing as a pastime, or benefits any respect able community. What I admire most is the extreme modesty of the proprietor in being satisfied with "40"...

The affair occasioned much excitement at Oakleigh, and very general regret was expressed for the suf ferer, who has held the position of rate collector for many years past. It seems that Mr Ellett, who is 61 years of age and not a very strour man, was going home from the township of Oakleigh, and when withinia quarter of a mile of his place a young man jumped up from behind an acacia tree and struck him a terrific blow on the head with a heavy stick. The blow was repeated several times, and Mr Ellett sank bleeding and nearly uncon scious to the ground. In despair he said to his assailant, " Rob me but don't mur der me." The fellow paid no attention to this pathetic appeal, but dealt: several violent blows over the face atd head of his victim; leaving him unconscious and bl...
