Selected Poetry. OUT AT SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 28 October 1887

Selected Poetry. OUT AT SEA. I know that I am dying, mate; so fetch the Bible here, What's laid unopened in the chest lor fire and twenty year; And bring a light along of you, and read a bit to me, Who have'nt heard a Word of it since first I came to sea. It's five and twenty year, lad, since she went, to her rest, Who put that there old Bible at the bottom of my chest; And I can well remember the words she says to me: " Now, don't forget to read it* Tom, when you get oat to sea." And I never thought about it, mate; for it clean slipped from my head ; Bnt when I come from that first Voyage, the dear old girl was dead. And the neighbours told me, while I stood at still as still could be, That she prayed for me and blessed me as was gone out to sea. And then I shipped again, mate, and forgot the Bible there, For I never gave a thought to it a-sailing every where. But now, that I'm dying, you can read a bit to me As seems to think about, now I'm ill and down at sea. And find a little p...

Does Smoking clear the Brain? [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 28 October 1887

Docs Smoking clear lite Brain? When Mr Kelly a few weeks ago moved in the Petersburg Model Parlia ment that " smoking be allowed in the House," and claimed Dr. Johnson as an .authority as to the efficacy of the weed, he probably did not think his remarks would be criticised in several of our contemporaries. The Mount Barker Courier turned up Boswell, who asserts the doctor never smoked. Mr Kelly in our next issue informed the Courier that he did not consider Boswell a conclusive authority on the subject, though he refrained from saying where he (Mx Kelly J had procured his infor mation. The last issue of the Courier contains the following: Recently we had occasion to call in ques tion a statement made by Mr £«lly at the Petersburg Model Parliament to the effect tbat Johnson cleared his intellect by smoking while busied over his famous dic tionary. Mr Kelly writes to last week's issue of the local paper to " deny Boswell being a conclusive authority to the contrary," but he does not ...

THE BABY'S DILEMMA. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 28 October 1887

THE BABY'S DILEMMA. My four year o'd baby sat on my lap, In the dusk of the fading day So helpless he seemed as he nettled there, So dependent on mother and mother-care, That 1 asked as I kissed the golden head, "What would you do,dear,if Mama were dead? The eyes met mine with a steadfast look, That showed neither sadness nor fear, The lips still smiled in a careless way, As though my death were anew-found play ; Not a tear in eye or voi<*e as he said, " I would live wiv grandma if you *vas dead." "But grandma i& old and feeble you know, And not able to care for you; You couldn't stay there". The face grew grave. 1 hen, still half-defiant, he slowly said, 1 tould lire wiv Auntie if yon was dead." " But Auntie has boys of her own you know, And she wouldn't want any more, No; yoncould'nt live there," The brown eyes fill; Life looks pretty gloomy just now. But still, Withaquiver of lip and chin, he said, " Touldo't I lire wir Uncle Tom if you waa dead?" " Uncle Tom h...

Gladstone. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 28 October 1887

Ciladstoae. A week's evangelistic mission was commenced in the Wesleyan Church on Saturday evening by the Rev D. O'Donnell, whose labours in different parts of the colony during the last six months have been very successful. The services have been well attended, and a number of young people Have pro fessed conversion. Although there can be no doubt that the rev. gentleman is deeply in earnest, it is to be regretted that his language is at times harsh and intolerant. The prisoner Manion, who escaped last week from the Gladstone gaol, was re-captured near Redkill on Sunday morning by Trooper Kelly of Clare. He was brought to Gladstone by the morning tram on Mondsy and was then charged before Messrs Knight and Soutlicombe, J.'sP. with gaol breaking and burglary, being then committed for trial and again lodged in in the gaol where, it is hoped, he will be securely kept. Haymaking is now full swing in this district. The yield will be greater than the average, some paddocks being ex pecte...

The last sentence was said in undertone, that the latent vanity deeping in the bosom of every child Eve might not be wakened in that innocent. But the mother replied with a nod-a gesture that was accompanied with a smile of approval. The eyes both parents turned from each other the children seated between them, was a pretty picture; not one of those overdrawn, fanciful, unreal pictures with its tints unlifelike; one of those groups of which one reads or heats but yet never delights the eye or gladdens the responsive heart of man.
