The Bold Volunteer. My fair-hair'd darling, listen, while I now unfold to you The reason whiy our hours here together will be few. Victoria's made an offer of some volunteers to send, To fight the dreadful Mahdi, and perhaps the war to end : And at the drill-room, darling, 'twas but on the other eve, Our gallant captain asked us all this colony to leave ; And every one stepped out, dear, and I could not then remain, And was forced to join the others, and 1 must not now complain. For I will fight, my darling, like the warriors of old, And cablegrams will tell you of the deeds of Smith the bold. I'm brave and strong, my Polly; you know that I am right; You've seen me put the shutters up in mas ter's shop each night.

The Passing of Qiteen Chlo e. Last of a royal race, she stood Upon the village street, Her black head-hidden-in her hood And bare her broad black feet, Yet wore she as become a queen Her'old an'd tattered bombazine. A Dryad of the mourning woods Was she. The years went by -* And left her as a wreck the floods Leave stiranded high and dry : In fact, the woods, give her her due; No dryer Dryad ever ki-ew. Not all her kindred's kingly dust, Her sires' residumn, : Would in the township get her trust For one poor pint of rum.. So have the mighty fallen: so Has fled the faith of long ago.

You lift your glass, that white head sinks The same law levels days and drinks. A...

We Want to Lay. A correspondent writes to us about the absurdity of sending horses to the Soudan, and winds up by saying that for crossing the desert camels are the most useful, as they can work for seven or eight days without drinking.

We are open to lay odds that we can send 5000 men from here that can drink seven or eight days without working. so the camels haven't .got much the best of it,

An Interesting Shipwreck. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 14 March 1885
An Interesting Shipwreck. The adventures of the captain and crew of the oil-ship Reindeer, from Philadelphia, would very handsomely fill up a good-sized. boy's book-or a boy's good-sized book-with a thrilling and interesting story. They were sailing the ocean blue of the Pacific when the ship suddenly struck a reef and went down. There were twenty-fonr of them and they barely escaped in the long boat, when next morning they found themselves on one of the .Marshall Islanuls. They were immediately surrounded by a number of " new saddle " colored natives, about half of whom were women. Their hosts and hostesses-as such they proved-were dressed in cocoanut mats, and the chief was surrounded by pretty good looking women, whose business it was to keep the flies off him. The mates of the lost vessel disagreed as to the number of his wives-one put it at three, the other at thirteen. However, whether his harem was large or small it was big enough to give him a place to stay, so he turned ove...

Waking Them Up. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 14 March 1885
Waking Them Up., When a man used to be called at an hdtel, so as to catch the first tain?,hie got into his pants, hit the .water bowl-with a sound that would go throuigh the' next half dozen rooms, grabed his portmanteau, and went into the hall, slammed the door, and went down stairs whistling, " It's five o'clock in the morning." And the saiime thing is done now, only the parties' makinig more noise, and the guests swearing a little more. Every other guest, for half a street each way, is awakened, and is mad. It is singular, but when a porter attempts to. awake the man who is to be called, that man is the last one on the floor .that wakes up. Everybody else hears the noise, but the man that ought to hear it dreams on in blissful 'ignorance that a panel' is being kicked out of his door, and when he does wake up he is always mad, though he has nothing to get mad about. It is the other guests that have a right to be mad. Everything about the first-class 'hotels of the present day is p...
