Fareliae [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 29 August 1885

A little boy, sentenced to be whippeds said: ' Very well ; go ahead. All I ask is to take chloroform before you begin." "Why did the boy stand on the burning deck?" asked a teacher of her class. "'Cause he had a boil and couldn't sit down,"t A young lady is in want of a husband. She is intelligent, amiable, and accomplished, but not pretty. She advertises for a blind man. " Pa," said a precious youth, in referring to his stern parent's unshaven visage, ',your cheek looks like the wheel in ma's music box." Four old ladies and two old men have cut their third sets of :teeth during the past month.; It will probably be a very? hard winter for the dentists. When a boy stands on his head on a car pet tack that stands ditto, they generally both invert directly. . SWhat is the difference between: a wise say g and a bag of chopped meat ? One is a sage saw and the other is a sauisage. " You are a low-lying fellow," said one man to another. "Do you dare to call me that ?" said the other; "'dra...

RENOVATING FRUIT TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 29 August 1885

RENOVATING FRUIT TREES. An incident which occurred some years ago in my garden taught me an -easy way to infuse new life and vigor into young trees of sluggish growth. A cat was accustomed to scratch on the body of a small pear tree, and before I was= aware of it the entire bark around the tree for about a foot up was dry and dead. Considering the chances for the tree's survival very small at best, Isawed off the stem just below the lacerated bark. This was done about the middle of May, and the wound swas thickly .covered with grafting wax. The first season a new stem of over five feet greiv from the stump, and four years afterwards the tree had reached double the size and bore twice the amount of fruit of any of the other trees planted at the same time in the same: field. Profiting by this experience, I have since that time never hesitated to saw off every limb from bark bound, crooked-branched, unsatisfactory and slow-growing trees. New sprouts will start at once, the trees will r...

Scientific Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 29 August 1885

A distinguished children's doctor gives hi opinion that healthy babies will take wate every hour with advantage, especially i warm weather. Their fretfulness and ris of temperature is often due to their not hay ing it. An English lock-maker has constructed a key which he claims is capable of openin 22,600 patent lever looks, all of which differ n their wards or combinations. As des. cribed, the key weighs three ounces, and is nickle-plated. A brilliant black varnish for iron, stone, or wood can he made by thoroughly incor porating ivory black with common shellac varnish. The mixture should be laid o very thin. But ordinary coal-tar varnis will serve the same purpose in most case quite as well, and it is not nearly so expen sive. As the result of his personal observations, M. Claret states that the walking of insects may be represented by the three men in In dian file, the foremost and hindermosto whom keep step with each other, while the middle one walks in the alternate step.

" See any others of the family?" "Yes, the old lady and boys." "Didn't you see.the old man,?" " No." "You had a nice time then, did you?

That's how be got in his work.I Do you suppose if I had seen him I would have allowed him to kick me? Not much.

Spring Verselets. RUN THROUGH THE PROSE MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 29 August 1885

Spring Verselets. RUN THROUGH THE PROSE MACHINE. 'Tis now the busy housewife gets in her little work, while his part of it the husband will deliberately shirk. She spends the day in scrubbing on the windows and the walls; the husband dons his new spring pants, the wife the over-hauls. I know a paid-up member in a big Y. M. .. A., and very seldom will you hear this youth a cuss word say. For naught but pure and holy thoughts within his mind will rise excepting when at meal-times you'll hear him " d-n these flies." And now the poet hies him forth, to ramble thro' the wood, and, if a dog's within a mile, the poet's chance is good to travel homeward bleeding,, with his manly form chewed up and half of his spring trousers in possession of the pup. Then while we grieve at his distress, and try to heal his bruises, let's hope that in the future all poetry he refuses ; if he persists, then let us all kind Providence implore. "We pray Thee, send us poets less, or big bull-dogs the more." Bri...

Lucky Editors. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 29 August 1885

Lucky'Editors. When the. late N. Villemessant, the pro prietor of the Paris Figaro, died, he left the paper to the .three men who had done the most to aid him. But there were many old contributors on the paper-mcn with well known names, who made, an outcry at this divisiobi of property. They insisted that they ought to have been consulted, and they threatened to found an opposition to Figaro. This alarmed the three principals, and they made a proposition to the effect that they themselves should take each £7,000 out of the concern yearly, and that the other men should each have a salary of £1,500'for the work they were to do, and at the end of the year draw a like sum out of the profits, thus ensuring them £3,000 a year each. Yet thesd men do not write an average of more. than half a column a day each-if, indeed, that much, so that they have a very easy timie of it. It is one of the conditions that when any one of them dies his share goes to the otheis, so that the last survivor wil...

What the Mother Says. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 29 August 1885

"What the Mother Says. Yes, I know there are stains on my carpet, The traces of small muddy boots ; And I see your fair tapestry glowing, And spotless with blossoms and fruits I And I know that my walls are disfigured With prints of small fingers and hands ; And that your own household most truly s In immaculate purity stands. And-I know that my parlor is littered With many old treasures and toys ; While your own is in daintiest order, Unharmed by the presence of boys I And I know that my room is.invaded Quite boldly all hours of the day; While you sit in yours unmolested, And dream the soft quiet away I Yes, I know there are four little bedsides Where I must stand watchful each night; While you go out in your carriage,. And flash in your dresses so bright. Now, I think I'm a neat little woman; I like my house orderly, too ; And I'm fond of all dainty belongings, But would not change places with you. No I keep your fair home, with its order, Its freedom from bother and noise; And ke...

Modern Proverbs. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 29 August 1885

Modern Proverbs. Every back has its pack. Home is the rainbow of life. Sighs. are poor things to fly with. A white lie often makes a black story. Egotism is an alphabet with one letter. The surest road to honor it to deserve it. Better a line of sense than a page of non sense. Onlywhisper scandal and its echo is heard by all, The want of money is not the root of much evil. If you'd know a man's character follow him home. They who live in a worry invite death by hurry. Pens and ink out of reach avoid many a breach. It's a poor musician who can't blow his own trumpet. He who would cat the egg must first break the shell. It's not the clock with the loudest .tick that goes the best. Don't complain of the baker until you have tasted his bread. Look after your wife; never mind your self, she'll look after you. The present is the child of the past and the parent of the future.

Decline of the Nose. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 29 August 1885

Decline of the Nose, The graduall decline of the human nose is the result of the introduction and general use of handkerchiefs. The Romans never used handkerchiefs, and their noses, as we all know, were'of the largest and finest type. Moreover, they were less liable to colds in the head than are people of the present time, and their noses enjoyed almost a sinecure. As civilisation advanced northward from Italy the inhabitants of the cold and vari able climate of northern Europe found that their noses were constantly called into aotivity, and as a consequence the: average European nose fell below the Roman stan dard. Within modern times the handker-. chief was invented, and a new and potent factor in-. the reduction of noses thus came into existence. Constant friction will wear away the hardest stone, much more the soft and cartilaginous nose. Under the friction of handkerchiefs the noses of the present century have steadily diminished, until small. noses are worn almost as much as s...

Wanted—A Diamond and a Thief. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 29 August 1885

Wanted-A Diamond and a Thief. With four other masculine fellow-sufferers -one of whom was a small, spectacled, in offensive-looking man-Ned Girard and my. self were the suffering inmates of a non. descript vehicle of the stage-waggon pattern, drawn by six small horses, en route from the Bloemfontein diamond fields of South Africa from Wellington, thence by rail' to Cape Town." Two-thirds of the terrible journey had already been accomplished, yet there were still some 250 miles to travel over the sun-beaten plain and arid desert before us, with the mercury at 102 in such shade alone as our tilted conveyance afforded-for in truth there was no other. Most of us knew each other by sight, having met daily for some months in and about the mining field which we had left. But I will vesture to state that six more surly, unsocial fellow passengers than our dusty uishorn selves were perhaps never thrown together. If Ned and myself were a little more pro. nounced in general disagreeableness th...

OUR ILLUSTRATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 29 August 1885

OUR ILLUSTRATIONS. This week we present to our readers two pictures, which contrast strongly in appear-. ance. In the first we have one of nature's wildest freaks in the representation of an Australian forest. To those who reside in the bush or have visited any of our forest ranges and ravines or gullies, .the picture, though beautiful, is but one of thousands; but to many of our readers it presents features which to them are unknown only as presented by the artist, and to such of them as can get away at holiday time to some kindred nook as is presented in ourjpicture, we can promise a pleasure which they can hardly foresee. In our other picture, the Waterloo Bridge, London, is shown what science and the skill and energy of man can accomplish. This bridge, one of many which crosses the Thames at London, was erected-for a public company by John Rennie, the engineer, from, a design by John Linnell Bond. At the time of its erection, it was regarded as one of the greatest triumphs of ar...

Human Freaks. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 29 August 1885

Human Freaks. In the'course of conversation about human "freaks," a museum manager gave the fol lowing information to a well.known Colonial theatrical manager : The first tattooed woman in the business was Irene Woodward, who was paid 60 dol. lars. She was tattooed by a New York man named Hilderbrand, who afterwards made it his business to tattoo women, including his own wife, for 250 dollars, taking a lien on their salaries. This man's wife vas known as Mme. Dora Hilderbrand. There is another woman known as Mme. Dora, and a number of men, who are paid from 40 dol lars down to 15 dollars. The greatest curio; sity in the way of tattooed people was Cap. tain Constantinus, the Greek, was was paid from 75 dollars to 100 dollars a week. About two years ago~he was attacked with blood poisoning, resulting from the coloring matter entering the system. He 'is now in France endeavoring to have hisfeyesight restored.
