A SMART BIT OF SEAMANSHIP. (ST. JAMES'S GAZETTE) [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 12 May 1888
A SMART BIT OF SEAMANSHIP, (sr. smanms GAZSrTE) It Is often said that seamanaship will soon be a lost art, and that at anyrate our naval officers no longer need to become profilents in Its practice. Therefore the following story of a breakdown that nearly ended in a catastrophe is all the more Interesting. "Breakdown of a man-ofwar" is not an Infreqnuent aanmoneement a the news papers, but it generally refers to the mis haps of some vessel on her trial trip, and not of a ship in commission. In this ease two meniof-war were in great danger of being lost through accidents to their machi. nery, and were only saved, apparently, by what small sail power they possessed and the skill and readiness of their oficers. The story, briefly told, is this. On the 23rd of February last the Brilsn squadron on the West Indian station, under Admiral Lyons, was proceeding to sea from the Port of Spain in Trinidad. The passage out between the island and the main, called the Bocca Huevas Channel, is some...

THE IDEAL OF A BRITISH ARMY. THE AUTHOR OF "GREATER BRITAIN," IN THE "FORTNIGHTLY REVIEW." [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 12 May 1888
THE IDEAL OF A BRITISH ARMY. Ten AurTos ow "GaenAxe BaIt~N," I? wn.. "Ponwegarur B. vvaw." My .Ideal .f th ergaafsation of British mlitry. power would be based on the main principle of having two grand divisions, which may be callea separate armies or not, as the reader pleases. They would at any rate be separated in time of peace by space, by different terms of recruiting, and by differences of general organisatlon; for the Asiatic army would have large bat talion composed of men enlisted for ten or twelve years, with a proportion of old soldiers. But in some respects the armies would not be distinct, for there would be full facilities for transfer and exchange among officers, and even to a limited extent among non-commiseioned ofilers and men. Aden would, of course, be taken charge of by the Asiatic army, and the Gape so long as British troope paid otherwise thean by the colonists must be kept there. In fact this army should garrison all the distant fortresses and coaling stations...

NEWSPAPER BORES. [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 12 May 1888
,; N',i; iEW8PAPER BORE 8. AMONG newspaper bores is the, man whose handwriting is so intolerably bad no one can read it, but who, nevertheless, never misses the oppor tunity to-blow his little' horn, and glorify himself in type.. This man is a bore of such frequent occurrence that- we will not linger to describe him. Another bore is the man who, when a reporter asks him about a cer tain bit of news he is known to' pos sess,.is as dumb -as an oyster, and then, as -soon as the reporter's back is turned, runs into the office, and as he supposes, puts the news where it will do the most good for him in the way of free passes. He is a bore from away back, and is a hard one to deal with, for he has news that must he had, and he will not give it to the man assigned to get it.. No matter how much 'other duties press, no matter how. busy the editor may.hbejust at thatmoment, and no matter how many other men are idle, there is: no other course open; everything must come to a standstill, and th...

A DOG IT COURT. (FROM THE CIHICAO INTER OCEAN) Minneapolis, Minn., 19th February.-It Is an o·urrence as rare as it is wonderful that a dog has been brought into court before judge and jury to give evidence in his own case. Such a case-that of Burton against Gochrinkor-oocurred in the Henneplo Coon.y Dlstrict ourt yesterday. Some two ears ago H. Burton lost a Gordon setter dog. He was a intelligent as he was handsome, and Mrs. Burton had taught bim many ensertaining tricks. A couple of months ago Mr Baron ran across Sport in the street and took him home. Chris Gosh ringer, a saloon keeper, claimed the dog as hise uwn, alleging that he had bought him -wo years previously. A lawsuit was the result. Mr Barton produced witnesses to prove that he had owned the dog since his puppyhood. Goehringer brought to the per son of whom he had purchased Sport, a man of unblemished reputation, who, on his part, produced witnesses equally as trust worthyas Mr Buaron's to prove that he had owned the do...

THE YOUNG FOLtKS. HOW THE GOOD GIFTS WERE USED BY TWO. Br HowArnaP .. . -oM OAARPER?B YOUNG PEOPLE. This is the way that this story begins: Once upon a time there war a rich brother and a poor brother, and the one lived aeross the street from the other. The rich brother had all of the world's gear that was good for him, and more besides; the poor brother had hardly enough to keep soul and body together, yet he was contented with his lot. 0oo day we should come travelling to the town where the rich brother and the poor brother lived but St. Nicholas himself. Just beside the town gate stood the great house of the rich brother; thither went the saint and knooked at the door, and it was the rich brother himself who came and opened it to him. Now St. Nicholas had had along walk of it that day, so that he was quite eovered with dust, and looked no better than he ohould. So when the rich brother heard St. Nioholas ask for a night's lodging at his fine great house, he gaped like a toad in a...

THE HOLY OF HOLIES OF IEL& L . The "Life of Sir Richard F. Barton," by Mr. F. Hitchman, contains an interesting account of the traveller's visit to she Holy of Holies of Islam, a place never visited by an Eeglishman before or snles.- • The narrative is in Sir Richard's owh words': "A crowd had gathered round the Kala bab, and I had no wish to stand bareheaded and barefooted in the midday September son. At the cry of 'open a path for the Haji who would enter the House,' the gazere made way. Two stout Mecoans, who stood below the door, raised me in their arms, whilst a third drew me from above into the building.

He held in his hand the huge silver gilt pad lok of the Ka'abah, and presently taking his seat upon a kind of wooden press in the ielt corner of the hall be officially inquired my name, nation,...
IV.—THE DRUG. [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 12 May 1888
IV.-Tz Dunnc. John immediately proceeded to undress. In five minutes he was ready for bed. With out delay I prepared for the further execution of my plot. 'John,' said I, ' there's a pint of chbm. pasne left in my closet. It strikes me that it would be just the thing with which to top off this night's adventure. What do you say!' A most excellent idea,' was John's reply. How smoothly every'hing was working! I opened the closet, drew forth the bottle, and wrenched off the wire with which the cork was bound. I then glanced furtively at John. H, wae winding his watch, with his back turned toward me. I quickly filled the glees which contained the drug and extended it to John. He quaffed the contents with great relish, I mean while watching him over the rim of my own glass. He smacked his lips criically after his gles had been drained. 'It seems to me that there is a singular flavour to that chbampagne.' I felt a guilty thrill and affected not to hess him. ' Howsleepy I am,' was his next...
