A Human Bugle. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 21 February 1885
A Human Bugle. At one time an officer belonging to one of the regiments stationed at Gibraltar pos sessed a rather curious accomplishment. Placing his hand to his mouth he was able to imitate the sound of a bugle with a force almost equal to that of the actual instru ment; and he could play a tune, or make long calls, such as the advance, retreat, reveille, &c., so that anyone would imagine a real bugle to be blown. In those days there were no cabs, and the principal means of locomotion within the garrison were don keys-at all events among the younger officers. For the sake of fun, and without thought of doing more harm than playing off a hoax, the officer in question had occasion ally sounded a call here and there, and two or three times a cavalcade of subalterns had clattered past the convent (the governor's residence) with him in their midst sounding the alarm, and causing the guard to turn out, and creating considerable confusion. Orders were therefore issued that no one...

Raisins are something like prophets-for instance, when they are stoned. Motto of the cornet player--An. high for an high and a toot for a toot.

A Page of English History. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 21 February 1885
A Page of English History. BY OUR COLONIAL ROMANCIST. Egbert, King of Wessex, a warlike person, who parted his hair in the middle and wore straps to his trousers (12s 6d, ready made, antique crutch and toothpick cut), succeeded in abolishing the Heptarchy by conquest, and making himself King of the whole seven counties. On this occasion he sang to his soldiers the famous ditty of "Rule, Britannia !" a neat thing of his own com position. Ethelwolf, his son, succeeded him,- and married on his return from a pilgrimage to Rome; Judith, daughter of Charles the Bald, King of France. His courtiers agreed with him that it was a most fuditizious marriage. [This sort of thing must not occur again. ED. T.B.] After a feeble reign Ethelwolf died, and was succeeded by Ethelbald--an appropriate name, since he married his mother-in-law, Judith. He must have been a remarkably courageous man. Ethelbert, the next king, was honored by a visit from the Danes; and in the rcigli of. Ethelred, who came nex...

"Tall Tales" from Ben Nevis. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 21 February 1885
"TaU Tales" from Ben Nevis. No one, says a Glasgow gentleman, who has not climbed the hill can imagine the dilliculty of building a habitual dwelling on the highest peak in Britain and making a path up to it. Ponies can now get up, but they can only carry two hundredweight, and when it is considered that the weight of the lead on the roof of the observatory is twelve tons, some idea of the work may be formed. All the stories about captain of vessels re quiring to have a man beside them to hold their hair on in gales of wind which they have experienced sink into utter significance when compared with the story of Ben Nevis. For instance, a joiner asserts that his saw was whipped out of his hand, and that he saw it sailing away towards Inverness, cutting its way through the clouds as only a good saw could. It had been sharpened and its teeth set on edge that morning. A shep herd lost his dog on Saturday; it was blown clean away because it could not hold on by the stones. It was quite a...

A Skilful Surgical Operation [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 21 February 1885
u-A Skilful Surgical Operation An American Ambassador at Vienna, Mr Hasson, has lately forwarded to his Govern ment, an interesting account of a remarkable sTrgral operation, lately performed by Pro fessor Billroth, of Vienna, which, wonderful to tell, consisted in the removal of a portion of the human stomach, involving nearly one third of the organ-and, strange to say, the patient recovered-the only successful ope ration of the kind ever performed. The disease for which this 6peration was per. formed was cancer of the stomach, attended with the following symptonis-The appetite is quite poor, There is a.peculiar indescrib able distress in the stomach, a feeling that has been described as a faint " all gone" sensation; a sticky slime collects about the, teeth, especially in the morning, accompas nied by an unpleasant taste. Food fails to satlsfy this peculiar faint-sensation; but, on 'the contrary, it appears toaggiavate then feeling. The eyes are sunk-en, tinged with yellow; the ha...

So when they'd made their game of h or Had taken off her elf, She roused, and foun,! she only was A coining to herself. ' And is lihe gone, and is lie gonce?'

A Fitting Rebuke. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 21 February 1885
A Fitting Rebuke. There are many men in existence who deem it no harm to speak slightingly of women; according to their idea, it isquite meet that the strong should assail the weak. One of these robbers of reputution received a severe rebuke on a recent occasion.' At a dinner, at which no ladies were present, this man, in responding to a toast, "Women,' dwelt almost solely on the frailty of the sex, claiming that the best among them were little better than the worst, the chief dif ference tbeing their' surroundings. Akt the conclusion of the speech, a gentleman present rose to his feet and said, " I trust the gen tleman, in the application of. his remarks, refers to his own mother and sisters, not o;rs." The effect of this most just and timely rebuke was overwhelming, and the maligner of women was covered with con fusion and shame.
His Last Performance. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 21 February 1885
His Last Performance. The last time Macklin performed the part of Shylock, his memory failing him, he stood for a long time speechless. After a long pause, the audience becoming out of patience, a general hissing ensued, regardless of his old age-then approaching to ninety. Not being able to proceed, he retired. The narra tor of the anecdote says he was in' the pit, near to the orchestra, and was hurt to see the old man come forward on the stage, in one hand holding a candle, and in the other a paper, which he read to the audience, and in which he justified himself. IMacklin brought an action against a lawyer named Alderton, who had hissed him, and recovered damages, which, on his refusing to accept, the judge complimented him, saying, " Mr. Macklin, this is one of your best perfor mances."

Eight Hundred Pounds Given for a Dog. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 21 February 1885
Eight Hundred Pounds Given for a Dog. Mr. J. K. Emmet, having mourned a suf ficient length of time over the death of his St. Bernard dog, Bayard, jun., for which he gave the sum of 2,500 dol. at the New York Dog Show of 1882, has been on the look-out for another gigantic pet. Rumors of the arrival of a canine giant from England had reached " Fritz " while journeying by thea trical stages to New York, and one of the first missions after his arrival in this city was to call upon a gentleman prominently known in connection with dog shows. Full information with regard to the dog inquired after was forthcoming, that he was owned by Mr. E. R. Hcarn, of Passaic, N.J.; was named Rector, of pure St. Bernard breed. and, beyond doubt, the largest dog in the world. Mr. Emmet went to Passaic to see " the mighty Rector," and as the large moun tain of flesh rose upon his feet and elevated his shoulders to a height of thirty-five inches from the floor, memories of the lost Bayard, jun., were wiped ...
