DRIVEN MAD BY BIRDS. (LESLIE'S BUDGET). [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 21 April 1888

DRIVEN MAD BY BIRDS. (L.SLIE'S BUDGET). 'I never see one of those birds,' said a retired American naval officer, pointing to a large penguin in a museum' collectiob, ' but what I am reminded of one of the. most dismal and curious experiences of my whole life. It's an innocent-looking creature-no wings to speak of,atupid, and easily knocked over; but, if you will believe me, I have seen a-man driven stark staring mad by them, and aparty of able seamen nearly killed.' ' It is difficult to imagine such a thing,' said his companion, 'and I should like to hear the particulaers.' 'When I was a midshipman,' commenced the officer, ' I was assigned to a convoy of the South Atlantic Squadron that was ordered to a group of small islands, then newly discovered, that lay off the coast of. Africa, about 1,200 miles or so from the Cape of Good Hope. It was supposed that England was about to claim them, and it was esuggested by the Navy Department that we look the matter up, and if the place was va...

LADY RBAILWAY TRAVELLERS. (DAILY 'nnuGOAPHr.) There Is a story. of annAmerloan gourmet residing very far down East, and of a stay at.home disposition, who onoe.undertook a journey to Baltimore to visit a friend who was a denizen of the Monumental City. He returned enchanted by the reception with which he had met in the capital of the beautiful state of Maryland. Warmly did bhe praise the terrapin and the venison steakes of which he had partaken; but in particular was his enthusiasm aroused by that historical Maryland dainty, the canvas back duck, an aquatic bird which derives its delicate and delicious flavour from the wild celery on which it feeds, chiefly on the shores of Chesapeake Bay. So deeply was he impressed with the gastronomic virtues of the bird, which It is said only needs to fly, through a hot kitchen to be sufficiently cooked, that he determined to try whether he could not "raise" canvas-backs on his own farm in the State of Maine. A year after. wards his friend from B...

THE LADIES' COLUMN. SMALL TALK. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 21 April 1888

THE LADIES' COLUMN.B BY VIrV, SMALL TALK. Speech has been defined as a means of expressing our thoughts, and also of con. coaling them. Both those definitions are sometimes correot. But there is a kind o01 psooh that cannot be included under either h~ading, and that is the sort of con. varsatlon known as small talk. The ohief use of small talk is to express friendly and noeighbourly f eling. The con ventional "How d'ye do?" and the wishes for a good night or day come undeoi the heading of small talk, and though none of these expressions mean anything, yet mankind has generally agreed that they are to be held as indications of the existence of friendly feeling, and, as such, they have their value. It would not do to substitute for these meaningless comn monplaces expressions of philosophio, scientific, or poetic import. We should only puzzle and displease the people we ad dress. Another use of small talk is in cultivating the society of persons with wohom we have little in common. It...

DEAD. MAN'S ROOK. THE FINDING OF THE GREAT RUBY. A RouiaAon $r Q. BOOK IL CHAPTER VII. (CorTrnuED.) TELLS HOW CLAI' WENT' TO THE PLAY ; AND HOW SHE SAW THE GOLDEN CLASP. A week had passed and I was standing with. Claire beside Tom's grave. We had met and spoken at the funeral, but some restraint had lain upon our tongues. For myself, I was still as one who had sold his brother for a price, and Olaire hadforborne from questioning my grief. The coroner's jury had brought in a verdict of ' Murder by a certain person unknown,' and now the police were occupied in following such clues as I could give them. All the daily papers assigned robbery as the motive, and the disappearance of Tom a watch-chain gave plausibility to the theory. But I knew too well why that chain had disappeared, and even in my grief found consolation in the thought of Colliver's impotent rage when he should come to examine his prize. I had decribed the face and firere of my enemy, and had even identified him as the l...
