ON GARDENING. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 15 March 1884

ON GARDENING. Horticulture, agriculture, floriculture, and all the other cultures, are not only useful and ornanmental, but theytend to devolope muscle and a good appetite. Holding this opinion, my readers will not wonder that on my be coming possessed of a quarter acre of land and alfour-roomed house, I at once deter mined to go into the horticultural line with out any delay. " We must have a garden," said I to Mrs. Cramer, as I suiveyed the quarter acre plen-. tifully;covered with thistles and sorrel. " Do you undeistafd it; dear ?" asked Mrs. C., timidly. "Do I what?" said I; contemptuously:": ". Here let me remark that never in my life have I ever confessed my inability t6 do any thing., I have been asked if I could build a liiiich, manage a railway, ??float loin,'or ruin the Government, and: to: eah and all my reply has been in the affirmative. It will, therefore, be easily, understood in what scornful tones my reply was couched to Mrs. S"Why, there's niothing to do," I continu...

BALKY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 15 March 1884

BALKY. Quite a sensation was created in Bourke street the other morning. 'iAn old man came 'driviig up the street.' His cart'was a queer vehicle of an ancient'type, and had evidently been used a great many years. -',All at once the iron-grey horse came to a standstill. He refused to move. He wouldn't go. The dilapidated specimen of a long departed past beat him vigorously with a club. The old man pounded him unmercifully. But that Ihorse refused, to go: "He::would not moV'e.' By this time, a great crowd; h gdathered, about, and strange to say almost every one knew how to make that horse go. .""" Uitie'lii?'?elly-liand," said a mia with' a pug nose. i ,.

The ,Inspector and the- Lunatic A Goon story is told about the Inspector of Lunatic Asylums and one of the patient. Wegived it as nearly as possible' asita told us, without vouching f6r its corectness. It appears that the doctor gave a kind of cnverzasione to the patients. Those only were allowed to be present who suffered from slight mania, a number of ladies and gentle men beiing also present on invitation. A very pleasant evening was spent; andone o the lady visitors found herself seated next to a very handsome and intellectual gentle man, who kept. her amused and interested uring the greater part of the evening. "Who is that gentleman ?" she ask of the"octor. "One of my patients, madam,".h epli But,'surely, he is'not mad ?" queried the lady. Only on one subject, madam," answered the doctor. , And that is-" Matrimony, my dear lady; on every othe subject he is as sane as you. or I. e is prfect gentleman, but any allusions to mar-. rihge:renders him perfectly unmanageable, s be'car...

An Invaluable Book. Men with energy 'and a fairamountof business capacity will make'a success in this world, even when other conditions are appar ently against them. We cite the following instance as a case in point: A gentleman entered thecsianctum of. a Melbourne newspaper office, and the ex perienced eye of the editor at once detected a book agent.. . " No books to-day!" he shouted, as he scis sored out a long editorial. "We've got all the cncyclopmdi*s, dictionaries, concordances, digests, geographical; slrveys, &c.,, &c., that we can find room for. All've *wani in this office is time ; that's the only thifig we are short of."

Wi are glad that our. reference 'to'the new pier has bad the desired effect of calling our local authorities to. the im portance of commencing it at. once. But' we can hardly understand that portion ,of Mr Levien's letter (as ie ported) that he had "no doubt :the matter would be undertaken before, the end.of 'th ~present financial year." It is rather a: cool way for the member. of the district to write, since the money is' voted, and it is his duty to see the work in progress. It. is evident' that codicillors must not?' le this'. aatter, drop, but press forward vigorouslyl with it. `'The work is urgent.

A FRENCH DIAMOND ROBBERY. A TRUE STORY [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 15 March 1884

A FRENCH, DIAMOND ROBBERY. A TRE? STORY .u It was in the paliniest days of the ill-fated Second Empire. The triumphs of the Crimea were not yet forgotten; the laurels'won at Magenta were still verdant and fresh; Sedan, with all its bitter humiliation and disastrous train of tragic consequences, loomed in the misty future, undreamt of amidst the almost fabulous luxury and incredible frivolity which paved the way for the final terrible fiasco. It was an evening in mid-winter. The Parisian season was at its height, and a brilliant audience had assembled at the Theatre Frangais to witness the performance of Jules Sandeau's delightful play, Mademoi selle de la Seigliere, in which the role of Destournelles was fille l by the great Regnier, and that of H6i1n by Madelein Brohan, then. in the zenith of her fame, radiant with youth, beauty and those fascinations, the 'outcome of innate, talent , and refinement, which rendered. this gifted' lady one of the, most charining' and perfect actresse...

OUR ILLUSTRATION. SCARBOROUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 15 March 1884

OUR ILLUSTRATION. SCARBOROUGH. The impression made ;pon the traveller who, approaches Scarborough-one of the most popular watering places along the Eng. lish coast-in the summer season, is that of brightness, which is conveyed as much by the shining aspect of the old-fashioned houses built along the hill-sides and narrow passages, whose knockersand door.handlesare polished till they seem to catch every wandering ray of sunshine ; whose doorsteps are was bhed with yellow ochre, and even the window-sillsl of the smallest and poorest abound with pots of flowers; as by the clear blue of the sky, the glittering expanse of water which stretches like a vast silver lake beneath the summer. sun which evokes duch wondrous sparkles on its unruffled surface, or the white beach, clothed with bathing-machines. Few of the tourists who frequent Scarborough are aware that the cleanliness and freedom from repulsive odor, so prevalent in closely built towns, which render it so delightful a resting pla...

PRISON PETS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 15 March 1884

PRISON PETS. There are'numerous instances on record of persons in "' durance vile " making pets of the most unlikely of animals, nay, even reptiles and flowers. The instances considered noteworthy have been generally those of persons of rank. In reality, the passion is not more to be wondered at in the Count Picciola of school-book notoriety, who gained over the good-feeling of his keeper to respect the pet flower which had sprung up between the stones of the prison-yard, than is a smilar feeling exhibited by the deepest. dyed criminal of the common gaol, In fact, it has been noticed that the feeling, if any. thing, is: stronger in the man of few re-: sources. The present humanitarian :system of con ducting prisons provides the educated prisoner with many means of, killing, if.not improving, his time, which a bygone system ignored. Companionship is found in books of the very best kind. In the case of the nn oducated prisoner, it is very different. i For many hours of the day he is s...

HOUSES WITH SECRET CHAMBERS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 15 March 1884

HOUSES WITH SECRET CHAMBERS. Apart from the romance and legendary lore associated with many of our old country houses, one of their most interesting features is the secret. chamber, which is not only curious as a relic of architectural ingenuity, but has been in most cases so skilfully con trived as to escape detection' from even the most experienced eye.; Few personsiitoo, perhaps are aware how numerous these hiding-places were in days gone by ; and, in. deed, it would seem that the mansions of our leading: families were not considered 'com plete without them. It is easy to' under stand hbw necessary such contrivances were regarded, when we call to mniind the wide. spread and deep-rooted feeling of. insecurity which once prevailed throughout the country, engendered by religioni and political intoler. ance. It must not be forgotten,, also;, that in the sixteenth century, and early in the seventeenth, the celebration of mass in Great Britain was forbidden; and hence those families wh...
