No Title [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 8 March 1884

At a country preaching appointment, Rev. J. L. M- met with a lady whom he did not immediately recognise. "Brother Jones's daughter?" said he, inquiringly. "Oh, no," replied she; "I used to be his daughter, butt I am married now!" It is an old "dodge" for doctors who want to get into notice to have a servant come into church and call them out. But Dr. Mead, of London, rejoiced in a father who was the minister of a large congregation, and whenever his medical son was sum moned in church time, the good minister was wont to call on the people to unite in prayers for the body and soul of the sufferer to whom the physician had just been called.

THE LEGEND OF THE TWINLAW CAIRNS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 8 March 1884

THE LEGEND OF THE TWINLAW CAIRNS. On the southern ridge of the Lammermoors, five miles from the village of Westruther, Berwickshire, stand the TwinlawCairns. They form one of the most noted and interesting features of the country-side. The Twinlaws, as they are familiarly termed, are two pillars of unhewn whinstone, which stand about fifty or sixty yards apart. Around the base of each, a rough circular causeway of flat stones, unpolished by the touch of art, ex tends to a radius of several feet. A few miles to the westward of these monuments, and hidden all but the turrets, amid a clump of fir-trees, is the mansion of Spottiswoode; while to the east is the decayed house of Wedderlie, once the home of the Edgars, now the property of Lord Blantyre. On the plain beneath, between the rising ground and the I turnpike that leads past Lauder and on to Edinburgh, the infant Blackadder trickles through fields that not long ago were marsh land, on its journey Mersewards. In this same fiat are...

Strong people-Shoplifters. The most useful thing in a long run.-Breath. The multiplication table.-The registry of births. A pair of stairs is a queer thing.-It has only one foot. A man too busy to take care of his health is like a mechanic too busy to take care of his tools. Correctly don't seem like a hard, word; yet they all go down because they can't spell cor rectly. A london paper says that Oscar Wilde is fool. The London Press is always slow in get ting news. Gentility is said to be eating meat with a silver fork when the butcher is not paid., A collector of curiosities wants to get the original brush with which the signs of the times were painted. When would you expect a man to suffer from a stitch in his side ?-When he has been hemmed in by a crowd. Brown says it is a wonder there is any truth fulness in the world when mankind begins life by lying in the cradle. How is it that.the hangmen of late have been shoemakers?-Because they have always been connected with the last. Mr...

Sitting Down on Him. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 8 March 1884

.Sitting Down on Him, "I don't altogether like this young man Millikin, who comes to see you so often; I hear he is nothing but a poor dry goods clerk," is what the head of a family said to his daughter one day at the dinner table. " He is a very nice young gentleman," re plied the daughter; "besides, he is some thing mote than a poor dry goods clerk. He gets a large salary, and is manager of one of the departments, and expects some day to have an interest in the business." "I hope he may," responded the old man; " but he strikes me as a very flippant im pertinent young person, and in my opinion he should be sat down upon." "Well, I have invited him to take tea with us this evening," said the daughter, " and I hope you will treat him politely at least. You will find him a very different person from what you suppose him to be." " Oh, I'll treat him politely enough," he said. That evening Mr. Millikin appeared at supper, and made a most favorable im pression upon the old gentleman. "H...

Agricultural, &c. THE "POTATO ROT." [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 8 March 1884

THE "'POTATO ROT." One of the most destructive diseases of cultivated plants is the "wet rot" in pota toes. This trouble was very eitensive in 1842, and again in 1845, when it spread over Great Britain, Ireland and the United States, causing great suffering to those who rely largely upon the potato as an article of daily food. The " rot" is due to the growth of a microscopic fungus (Peronospora infestans) that infests the potato plant in all its parts. This destructive parasite is closely related to the grape mildew fungus, so familiar in many American vineyards. The fubgus makes its appearance in frost-like patches upon the under side of the potato leaves, soon causing the foliage to curl, turn brown and die. The stems are next attacked, and through them the disease passes down to the tubers, where the destructive work is completed. The " rot" plant consists of a multitude of minute threads that run .in all directions through the substance of the potato plant. These fine filaments ...

HOW TO DEVELOP A CHILD'S BRAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 8 March 1884

HOW TO DEVELOP A CHILD'S BRAINS. An incident in the school life of a teacher, as related by herself, illustrates our point. She had charge of a school in a country town early in her career,' and among her scholars was a-boy about fourteen years old,',whb cared very little about study, aad showed no interest, apparently, in anything connected with the school. Day after day he failed in his lessons, and detentions after school hours and notes to his widowed mother had no effect. One day the teacher had sent himi to his seat, after a vain effort to get from him a correct answer to questions in grammar, and feeling somewhat nettled, she watched his conduct. Having taken his seat, he pushed the'book impatiently aside, and espying a fly, caught it with a dexterous sweep of the hsand, and then betook himself to a close in spection of the insect. For fifteen minutes or more the boy was thus occupied, heedless of surroundings, and the expression of his, face told the teacheyi that it, was mo...

CURIOSITIES OF CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 8 March 1884

CURIOSITIES' OF CRICKET. Another distinction between sides is Married and Single. The beginning of the alphabet has been pitted against the latter part--A to K against L to Z. During the last few years, a good match was made be. twen Over thirty and Under thirty. In 1810, a similar match was played, but it was between Over thirty-eight and Under thirty-eight. Single counties have played the rest of England; just as in the early days of crick et, a single club would hold its own against everybody else. Hambledon against England, with Hambledon victorious, is re corded in the early annals of cricket. The time has gone when any. single county is strong enough to contend against all others. Some wonderful scores have been made at cricket; but in 1882 the Orleans Club beat all previous records. . ..Against Rickling Green, they scored nine hundred and twenty in one innings. There are many eases known in which nothing has beeon scored in an innings; so that isa record .which.cannot be beat...

Dr. Franklin thought that judges ought to be appointed by the lawyers; for, added the shrewd man, in ScOtland, where this practice prevails, they always: select the ablest member of the profession, in order to get rid 6f him and share his practice them sslves. At a certain Ladies' Seminary, remarkable. for the shortness of its commons, one of the rules of the establishment was that each boarder, in turn, should recite a verse fromi Scripture just before commencing dinner. A young lady from the rural districts, whose imagination revelled 'in the good things '6f life as they were wont to be exhibited on her father's table, thus delivered herself at the appointed time: "How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger."
