Love's Punishment. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 22 March 1884

Love's Punishment. O if my love offended me And we had Words together, To show her I would master bei I'd whip her with a feather. If she then, like a naughty girl, Would tyranny declare ft, I'd give my love a cross of pearls, And make her always bear it. If still she tried to sulk and sigh, And threw away my posies, I'd catch my darling on the sly, And smother her with roses. And should she clench her tiny fists, Or contradict her betters, I'd manacle her dainty wrists With pretty golden fetters. And if she dared her lips to pout, Like many pert young misses, I'd wind one arm her waist about, And punish her with kisses. We have heard of a good many mean things in our time, but the action of the pro moters of the Amsterdam Exhibition in ro-. quiring successful exhibitors to pay for their own medals breaks the record.

FERN WINDOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 22 March 1884

FERN WINDOWS. From a popular English work, called.: :" Fern Paradise,". the following hints for window dedoration are taken;:--Let us see how the shady windows of a dwelling-house may be niade beautiful by the presence of ferns. We will begin at" the basedmnt;. Here'we shall find, as in thousands of Loh don and other city houses, a window -or windows looking out upon what is popularly'i called the "area." Such. windows are in variably immersed in 'shadow, and, given up as they are to the domestics of the house hold, oie may perhaps not infrequently see, as one passes, the window-sill adorned by modest. pots, containing geraniums, calceo larias, fuebsias, or the golden-green leaf and golden flowers of the sweet but 'modest: musk plant. Rarely do we see fe'rns in such , windows. But why should they not :be there? Let them by all means be mixed '. with such flowers as will thrive in these , windows. But when flowers need to be'ex .cludedby reason of the uncongeniality of :the situation...

DICKENS, THE TEACHER. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 22 March 1884

DICKENS, THE .TEACHER. All grimy old London Town was bright. ened, softened, yet mellowed and :made altogether lovely, by the humidly golden atmosphere which Turner painted so well and revelled in so madly. This atmosphere, in its tangible presence, is London's one beautiful garment, and when• it is folded' about her she is transformed from a gigantic, hard handed, money-changing wench to a queen. .Our American custom of Sunday morning late rising,, .loitering,, and our ,11 o'clock service, brought. me to the mainý entrange of Westminster Abbey after every sitting in that part of the structure was occupied. I vas directedto "poet's corner,' wheretemrn porary benches had been placed for the ac-' commodation: of the unusual .number of worshippers. The toned light, the exquisite 'music which flooded and echoed and lovingly lingered among: the lofty arches, the digni fied, impressive Church of England service, Canon Farrar's perfectly chosen,' eloquent words, all so conspired to enthral...

MARR TWAIN AGGRIEVED. WHY A STATUE OF LIBERTY WHEN WE HAVE ADAM. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 22 March 1884

MARR TWAIN AGGRIEVED. WHY A STATUE OF LIBERTY WHEN WE HAVE ADAM.,. Mark Twain was asked to contribute to the album of- artists' sketches and autograph letters, to be raffled foil at the Bartholdi pedestal fund art loaii' exhibition, in New York, and this is his response, which accom panied his contribution: You know my weakness for Adamand you know how I have struggled to get him a monument, and failed. Now, it seems to me, here is my chance. What do we care for a statue of liberty when we've got the thing it self .in its -wildest sublimity ? What you want of a monument is to keep you in mind of something you haven't got--somethliiig you've lost. Very well; ,we haven't lost liberty;' we've lost Adam: Another thing: What hasliberty done for us ? Nothing in particular, that I know of. .What have we done for her ? Everything. We've given her a home, and a good home, ;too. \And if she knowvs anything, she knows it's the firsttime she ever struck that novelty. She knows that when we took...

PORTRAIT OF A "LOAF" AND AN "OAF." [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 22 March 1884

PORTRAIT OF A "LOAF" .AND AN " OAF." Our very first morning at Silvarado,: when we were full of business, patching up doors and windows, making beds and seats, and getting our rough lodging into shape, Irvine and his sister made their appearance toget~er -she for neigborliness and general curiosity; he, because he was working for me,.if you please-cutting firewood at I forget how much a day. The way that he acset about cutting wood was characteristic. We were at that moment patching up and unpacking in the kitchen. Down he sat on one side, and down sat his sister oni the other. Both were chew ing pine-tree gum, and he, to my annoyance, accompanied that simple pleasure with pro fuse expectoration. She rattled away, talk ing up hill and down dale, laughing, tossing Sher head, showing her brilliant' teeth He looked on in silence, now spitting heavily on the floor, now putting his head' back and uttering 'a loud,; discordant, joyless laugh. He had a tangle of shock hair, the colour of w...

A TRUE BEAR STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 22 March 1884

A TRUE BEAR STORY. (Br IMP.) "Did you ever feel ile committing mur der ?" was a questioii'asked by a'Melbourne professional, one evening at a social gather ing,, just after an excellent recitation of Hood's "Dream of Eugene Aram" had been given by one of the company. As the ques tion was a general one, an old American, at, present.travelling with a company through out the colonies, responded, "Yes, I once felt like taking the life of a human being, and if I had had another round of ammuni tion left, I should to-day hive been branded with the curse of Cain." On being asked for the circumstances, he responded as follows: -Many years ago it was my good fortune to enjoy the personal friendship of E. A. Sothern, whose name is synonomous with that of "Lord Diindreary." Ned proposed one summer that we should go out into the Western States, and have'a bear and buffalo hunt. As our.autumn engagements did not b.egin for several weeks; I gladly assented to the proposition, and in a few days we...

The Paradoxical Actor. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 22 March 1884

The Paradoxical Actor. The actor's a mighty strange fellow; Saving billiards, all games he'll eschew, For he can't play atit he will tell'you, Unless you will give him his cue. He's all ranks and all ages by turns, King, beggar, boy, sere yellow leaf ; On Monday with love his heart burns; And next night he's prostrated by grief. Hie travels o'er countries and oceans, SOn a stage. from the North to the South; And he never can speak his own notions Except with a gag in his mouth. He'ssuperior toall human weakness, He fears not when dark spirits stalk; And the one time he loses his sleekness Is just when the ghost does not walk I

OUR LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 22 March 1884

OUR LASTWILL AND TESTA MENT. One of the duties incumbent on man is to leave instructions for the proper disposal of his goodsand effects after his decease. This is a moral obligation which ought never to be avoided. It is true that laws exist pro viding for the succession to the property of any individual who may die without making a will; but these. laws, though generally beneficent, do' not, and never can; in every case mete out that justice which heirs may separately deserve. The family status, the amount and character of the possessions, the rights, reasonable expectations, n'ecessities, qualifications, and perhaps the talents, of the different heirs who ought to succeed, along with numerous other considerations, should receive the gravest attention. Owing to the necessity of life, procrastination re garding such a weighty subject almost amounts to sin; for a man is bound to do justice to his offspring, that unseemly wrang ling may be obviated amongst brethren, who otherwise get...

A LITTLE GAME OF BILLIARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 22 March 1884

A LITTLE GAME OF BILLIARDS. I live in a quiet little mining town, and am in tolerably easy circumstances, having a good mining interest. I may state that I am also a very steady married man, having no small.vices, and but one weakness, namely, billiards. At this game I am considered only second to Roberts by the residents in our neighborhood. As a matter of fact, I believe I could beat ihim on our local table, as it is rather a peculiar one. Atone time it did service as a bagatelle table, and being about thirty years old the slates have got rather furrowed, leaving gutter-like tracks that Would be as difficult for a stranger to play on as on a metal road with three cricket balls and a scythe handle for a cue. Add to this that the balls have a peculiar knack of taking eccentric curves of the most extra ordinary discription in consequence of their not being round, and my readers will acknow ledge the difficulties of a first-class player in playing with a man like myself,' who hlas pla...

DARK DAYS. A STORY OF LIGHT. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 22 March 1884

DARK DAYS. - iB A STORY or LIGHT. BY G. MvWyLEt FINN CHAPTrsa I. RATEVER is the old fellow going to do ?" "Let's go on the pier and see." The scene was 'a fishing-village on the rocky coast of Corn. wall, the time about ten o'clock on one of those delicious Au. gust mornings when the sun is veiled by a thin gauze of mist, and the sea is dappled with delicate grey tints, that give it the appearance of some of the freshly-dug ores of the neighboring land, silvery and glossed with iridescent reflections. A dozen or so of brown-sailed luggers lay in the tiny harbor, half round which a solid granite pier curved like a protecting arm to save them from the onslaught of the waves. On the cobble-stones and rounded shingle below the cliff, filmy brown nets were laid out to dry; and on the cliff, leaning against its posts and iron rail, were a score or so of blue-jerseyed fishermen, watching, like the two speakers, the movements of a tall, grey, military-looking man, who had carried a couple o...

*-****1-- Science has accomplished wonders, but the red: sunsets are too much for it. The' coiurse of' true love often runs saoboth until'it is wrecked by the wife's misplaced switch.
