CURRENT LITERATURE. "EDWARD BULWER, LORD LYTTON." [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 15 March 1884

CURRENT. LITERATUJRE. "EDWARD BULWER, LORD LYTTON." This volume, written by. , Owen :Mere dith," Lord Lytton; son of the deceased novelist, is somethiig inore than a biography and something'else. It is more 'in dealing with a number ofifacts which do not pertain to biography, and less.in ommitting many facts of a personal nature' which probably would have been uised by' any other than a son of the novelist. One-half the'voluie is taken up with .an autobiography.' Bulwer never finished the work, but suggested that the story, which 'had only' been half told, 'might be supplemented by a' further ac count written by the son. The latter'says that ":It is the chronicle, rather than the history, of a life that I desire to write." He therefore entitles the book, "Life, Letters, and Literary Remains." The elder Bulwer covers a period of little less than a quarter of a century, He gives an account of the Bulwer family, and is careful to show its ancient foundation and its long and honor able'...

JOSH BILLINGS, WIT AND HUMOURIST. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 15 March 1884

JOSH BILLINGS, WIT AND HUMOURIST. Yankee humour is peculiar, but popular It is dry rather than funny, and surprises us into a laugh rather than tickles forth a smile. There are many kinds of Yankee humour, though, and some of it. we don't care for much.;: A good deal is mere slang, or, worse still, vulgar" prefanity, but, on the other hand, there is both_ wit and wisdom in such writings as thoseof Josh-Billings. Tle real lname of thle gentlema~n Who writes under that title is ýfr. A. W.'Sh?wi kand his' fame was first made, we believe, by his '"' Almanacks," which,- like those ;which Ben jamin Franklin wrote as "Poor Richard," were full. of curious sayings and wise saws. In the. case of Josh Billings, however, the -humour'is not`ailittle helped'by theopeculiar spelling. . , e He speaks liis id ery freely on many things, and always to the point.

Declined with Thanks. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 15 March 1884

Declined with Thanks. The modern advertiser, especially on th other sile of the Pacific, is usually credited witli:having attempted some smart things iný order to obtain "bold advertisements;" but; few have excelled. the enterprise (and audacity) of the late Professor Holloway, who once sent Charles Dickens a cheque for 0£.100oif he wodld'give him one line 'f cOie - plimentary notice, in, the book he (Dickens) was then publishing. "The great novelist, who evidently knew where.,to. draw ".the line," returned the amount forthwith, which must have been a bitter.pill for the professor -at any rate, he, received a considerable check.

Agricultural, &c. FEEDING FOR MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 15 March 1884

FEEDING FOR MILK. VThe Farmer's Hons Journal, an American publication, makes the following sound, practi-. cal remarks upon the above-named subject, which are deserving of consideration from dairy farmers :-" At the foundation of the dairy in dustry lies not only knod breeding, but also good feeding. The animal organisation devoted to this business is extremely delicate, and may be permanently injured by an injudicious tse of food, as it often is by accident and disease. This the.farmer should never forget. The great rule to be observed in the rearing of dairy stock is not to interfere with tie delicate organisation by the food furnished in early life even. The system of a heifer can be so injured by food as to disorganise her glandular system exactly a' the system of a onw can be forced into diseased action by excessive or inflammatory food.' A cow that carries a superabundance of milk seldom makes a good milker, and the wholesale state ment so often made that what produces fat wil...

"It was the Cat." [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 15 March 1884

'It was the Cat." George Sloppens was a martyr to our ultra- civilisation. Born of average parents, with the help of a State school education, he developed into a tall, fine muscular supporter   of lamp posts, and might be occasionally seen knocking old men into the gutter in a style that always brought down a hearty laugh from the by-standers. Sometimes, in a joking way, he would garotte a respectable pedes- trian just to see what the old party had in his pockets. He never kept it, oh no! he always put it back again' or sent it to the   missionaries. At other times he would use pewter pots, by way of showing his strength, on the foreheads of innocent landlords who declined to furnish beer without money. These and other amusing pranks caused some anxiety, and about this time he   had his portrait taken whilst on a visit to an hotel for three months. This period he used jocu- larly to call three-penneth, and with a rare sense of humor he would r...

THE QUEEN HER OWN BEDMAKER. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 19 March 1884

THE QUEEN HER OWN BEDMAKER.-AC. cording to a weekly contemporary, "it may not be generally known that the Queen invariably takes herow'n bed with her wherever she may be travelling.-!'." People would infer from this statement that her Majesty's " own bed'" forms a part of the Royal baggage. " The Queen always sleeps iti beds of precisely the same pattern, and made up' in exactly the same way. ,They are all manufactured at Windsor Castle, and there is one with accessories at each Royal `rlsidence in this county, at' the Villa Hohen. hle at Baden,: at:Rosnau, near Coburg, and on board the Victoria and Albert. When the Queen pays a visit, or goes abroad, a bed of the same pattern is made and despatched from Windsor in advance, to be in readiness fori her.. One was sent last year to Mentone, and thi ee years earlier another went to Baveno. At Diinrobih, Eloors, and other country houses at which the Queen has been a guest, her special bed has usually been left as a memento of the Royal v...

"LET US ALONE." The squire, having a visitor on business was very much annoyed to be interrupted by his wife, who came to ask him what 'he wanted for dinner. "Go away l let us alone,"' impatiently said the squire. h. Business detained his friend till dinner time,' and the squire urged him to remain. The squire was a generous provider, proud:of his table ; and he.complacently escorted him to a seat.

THE IDEAL OF TRUE WOMANHOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 19 March 1884

THE IDEAL OF TRUE WOIMAN HOOD. "Earth's noblest thing, a woman per. fected." As each artist has his own `special theory of beauty, each philosopher :his 'favorite dream for the world's good, each philanthro pist ýhis pet scheme for man's benefit, so every masculine mind has a particular notion of what constitutes the true Ideal of Woman. hood. A nation's position in civilisation might be known by- the value it sets upon woman's influence.. Where this is rated highly, the people are advancing;. where woman's worth is ignored, the nation is going to decay. The pages of history glow with the records of woman. Joan of Arc is a notable example of-heroism. Achieving great deeds :for her country, she won for herself the immortal title of Maid of Orleans. For three hundred. years the gratitude of her nation exempted her native village from taxation. - Those who lay great stress on the power of beauty see in Mary Queen of Scots another striking figure. Her famous predecessor, Helen of Troy, ...

'He is a staunch Liberal, and was one of the stonewalling party. which was put dowvn by. the "iron.hand" of the McCulloch ministry, and.which resulted in'the return to power of Mr. 'Berry, of whose ministry Mr. Patterson became a member. He was afterwards Minister of Railways in the next ministry which was formed by Mr. Berry, and was so highly approved by all parties for his c.,nduct in that position that many thought it gave him'a claim to one of the permanent three Commilsionerships just app inted, and the probable'explanation of his non.appoint ment as such is to be found in the fact that the Service ministry has steered clear of all politi. cal claimants: I...

AN ATTORNEY TO HIS LOVE. Forever witness this deed poll, To whom it may concern, That for the sweetest of femmes sole With quenohless love I burn. To her, in very simplest fee, My heart I do convey, With covenant of warranty, Forever and for aye. I humbly pray that she will give Her heart to me in trust, To be its tenant while .I live Till mine is turned to dust. I dare not seek a title great, Although I madly love hler; If slihe would grant' a -Iif te??tte I'd yield remainder over. Her heart's entailed, perhaps; then short I'll bring recoverie, And plead my cause in Love's own court, With Cupid for vouchee. The usufruct of her dear lips Would surely lure the bees in; I long to hold-her finger-tips By livery of seizin. Ah, hopeless I ! To me applears Her host of suitors; yet, Oh, who can soothe such startled fears By bills " quid timet ?" How my aforesaid heart would sing, And all said fears would cease, If this fair court would let me bring A churchly bill of peace. Then, by these ...

SLEEPLESSNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 19 March 1884

SLEEPLESSNESS, Nothing lowers the vital forces more than sleeplessness, which may generally be traced to one of four causations : (1) Mental worry; (2) a disordered stomach; (3) excessive muscular exertion; (4) functional or organic disease. Loss of sleep is, when rightly un derstood, one of Nature's premonitory warn ings that some of her physical laws have been violated. When we are troubled with sleeplessness, it becomes requisite to discover the primary cause, and then to adopt suitable means for its removal. When insomnia, or sleeplessness, arises from mental worry, it is indeed most difficult to remove; The best and perhaps only effectual plan under such circumstances is a spare diet, combined with plenty of outdoor exercise, thus to draw the blood from the brain; for it is as impossi ble for the brain to continue active without a due circulation of blood, :as it is for:an engine to move without'steam; !When suffering from mental distress, a hot soap-bath before retiring.to res...

Agricultural, &c. DISEASES AMONGST FRUIT TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 19 March 1884

DISEASES AMONGST FRUIT TREES. The alarming increase of diseases amongst our fruit trees during the last few years is a matter that ought to be taken seriously into consideration by every grower and by. every other person ,interested in the most import. ant industry of fruit'cultivation. Itis weak and childish to quietly fold the hands and to complain, it is equally weak to attribute the diseases to causes over which we have no control, to say that they are occasioned by "climate" influences, to 'fdecay 'of the species, exhlaustion of the soil, weakness in the trees,'&c." :We know through the in quiries into the matter and the consequent revelations made by scientific men, that most .of the diseases in our orchards are caused through attacks by insects or fungi, many of which are similar to those affecting trees in ;other countries, and which' most probably have been imported along with.trees and plants from those countries. . Very often it happens that a comparatively harmle...
