Traveller. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 5 November 1887
Cravelie. 2.Tran~ ylvania' Marriage Customs - hentheuyounugcouple go to church.thuday. 'after thle wedding, they are met at the church door by a group of masked figures who sur round them, singing and-hooting, and play fully endeavor to separate the young matron 'froin hler husband. 'If they succeed in so doing, then he must win her back in a hand to hand fight with his adversaries, or else he Smust give a piece of money as a ransom. In general it is considered a bad omen for the married life of the young couple if the wife be` separated from her husband on this ocension; therefore, it is customary for the young husband to take his stand close by the church door while his wife is praying within and then be ready to catch her as soon as she steps outside. For greater precaution, the man often holds her around the waist with both hands during the dance which im mediately takes place before the church, and ot which they assist merely as spectators, taking no active part, as it is not c...

MICKEY FINN'S RIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Elsternwick Leader and District Record — 5 November 1887
SM7IIOI EY. FINN'S 1UIDEL. The warm south wind had coaxed Tinds- I ley's woods into putting on their new spring c I suit. Broin'robins tripped briskly through s the springing green places in Stumpy Field. t Mickey Finn's tame cowsat on the fence and 6 kept a watch ul eye on the circling hawk, who had felonious designs on Mrs. Doolan's r bantams. A venturesome frog came out c of the mud on the margin of Brown's pond and tried to sing a solo; surprised at the dismal croak that came from his throat, t he concluded that he was not fitted for solo singing, and went back into the mud to wait until the chorus began work in i June. Mickey Finn had grown rapidly during the-winter.. He was broader shouldered and I deeper chested, and he began to put away t childislitlhings. A preception of the con- i ventions of society was beginning to dawn I on him.. He began to ask himself whether L there was any virtue in a paper collar. But i then there would be too manifest an inconu. gruity between a p...

TILE WALLED-I ROOM.1 I opened my eyes and looked around me. A man was leaning over my bed; near the man - stood a woman with a bonnet with great white wings on the sides, holding in her hand a moist compress. The room was plain and neat. with clean white walls. On a table, covered.' with a great napkili;of yellow linen, I noted a number of strange objects-rows of little vials, find a brownn.earthen' jar filled1 with bits of ice. .Througli-thsmuslin curtains; which bellied out from the window in the balmy air, I could see a patch of blue sky and the tops of. green trees bending lightly in the breeze. Where was I? It seemed 'like a e1 ,?1rain thECITh? a6d;hm-y ifeadt felt empty, my, limbs aehed, and I could not think. - The man gently lifted my head, and gave me a few 'drops of some liquid, which I swallowed with avidity. " Well, Mr. Furhiss," said he, "how, do youn feel ?" "Eh, what 2" I eried. " Where am I?,'" " You are in my. house my dear sir, and we shall take good care of yon. N...

For the first time probably in the his. tory of the peerage four living peeresses enjoythe same rank and title. First among tlie Marchionesses of Ailsbury is, of course, the evergreen Maria "LadyA.," a Tolleo mache, who married the first marquis in the early days of the reign of William IV. Next comes Marchioness Mary Caroline, a Herbert, who married the second marquis in 1837, and then Marchioness Louisa Elizabeth, a Beres. fnld, who married the third marquis in 1834.

JUSTICE TO ALL. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 1887. NOTES AND COMMENTS. WE are pleased to see that our old friend Mr. David Abbott is back again after a 14,000 miles ramble cafe and sound. He has arrived, too, at a critical juncture, and is now, in response to an influentially signed requisition, in the field as a candidate for a seat in the Moorabbin Council for the West Riding. Mr. Abbott's fitness for the position is unquestionable and will no doubt be duly recognised by the ratepayers. He, like Mr. C. H. Hearle, is a staunch opponent of the "going concern" busines*. It seems a pity that a triangular duel should be fought at a time when the contest should be narrowed sharply down to two sides. A victory for Mr Vail under the cir cumstances would be destitute of all public significance unless he polled more than both his opponents together. T?ErE has been a very rapid increase in the goods traffic at the North Brighton station, and there seems no signs of abate ment. - But the accommodat...
