CLERICAL REMINISCENCES. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 12 May 1888

CLERICAL REMINISOENOBS. The "Cornbill Magzine'! for March has a racy paper on "Clerical Reminiscences, from' which the following is extracted (the d writer had been advertislag for a curate): On one occasion the good qualities of the first gentleman I Interviewed were temrn. pored by an exceedingly obtrusive cork leg, whioh he didn't manage well. While I listened in my study to the approach of the second who had been asked to favour me I with a call, a heavy stumping in the passage made me say, "Surely there cannot be another such a one ?" But there was. So in the letter of invitation to the third on my list, I expresseda hope (with manyapologles) that he was not "lame." The reply which came was very satisfactory, till I reached the postscript. There my correspondent wrote, "Yo ask if I lamlame. It is unfortunately too true that I have lately lost my right leg, but I am assured that an artificial substitute. • . ." The most pathetic application I ever had was from a sort of Dominleo...

AGRiOULTUUBAL NOTES. The drought in Tasmania is still being It severely felt. Anie fall of rain took place to a ,week or two ago, but the ground was so very dry that all traces of the moisture have gS eiqoe disappeared. Feed is very soarce, and e, should ths winter be a severe one, heavy G Iosees In stock most follow.

Ploughing is being pushed n 'as well as can be expected, but the o hardness of the groond prevents mouch head. n way being made.

A DOG IN COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 12 May 1888

A DOG IN COURT. (sROM TUE CHICAGO INTER OCEAN) Minneapolis, Minn., 19th February.-It is an o ,ourreoce as rare as it is wonderful that a dog has been. brought into court before judge and jury to give evidenoo in his own case. Such a oeae-that of Barton against Goehrink-r-oscurred in the Heqnepin Coun y Dier-ot Court yesterday. Some two years ago H. Bunrton lost a Gordon setter dog. He was as iutelligent as he was handsome, and Mrs. Barton had taught him m.ny entertaining tricks. A couple of months ego Mr Buron ran across Sport in the street and took him home. Chris Goeb . ringer, a saloon keeper, claimed the dog as his own, alleging that he had bought him two years previously. A lawsuit was the result. Mr Burton produced witnesses to prove that he had owned the dog since his puppyhood. Goebhringer brought in the per. son of whom he had purchased Sport, a man of unblemished reputation, who, on his part, produced witnesses equally as trust worthy as Mr Burton's to prove that he had ow...

SONGS THAT HE[P. (DETROIT RnEE 'BESS.) BY Mns. MI. L. RyNE, " Is that your girl eingicgi" inquired a lady who was making calls of a friend she was at that moment visiting. "Yes; and it's a great trial to me to hear her singing about the house in that way." "Did you ever speak to her about it"' " No ; but I intend to do so. Hear that. Isn't it enough to give one the blues?" The girl was ainging in a sweet, clear voico a verse of a quaint old hymn. Both ladies listened as each word was distinctly and musically enunciated : I saw a wayworn traveller , In tattered garment. clad, And stroggline un the mountain It seemed that he was sad. Bls back was laden heavy. His etrength was a most gone, Yet he ahouted as he journeyed "Deliverance will' come ;' shen palms of victory orowns of glory, Palms of vlictory t eicail wear, After the chorus the voice ceased singing, "Isn't that dismal?"

THE LADIES' COLUMN. ABOUT SUCCESS [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 12 May 1888

THE LADIES' COLUMN. .(Br VivA. ABOUT SUoCESS Oharlas Lamb divides mankind into two tribes, those who borrow and those who lend; Byron divides men into the bores and bored; but a more general division of the human race, among the majority of persons, is that of the soc oeastful and the unsunoessful. To define a successful person Is. more difficult than at first eight appears, as it is a question whether a successful man is one who attains his goal in the world's estimate, or in his own. Mon and women have a strange faculty for eraving for some denied gift, which they consider Indis pensable to their complete snocess In life. George Eliot, while at thu height of her fame as a novelist, imagined that she deserved a poet's laurels, and Byron avowed that as a soldier, and not as a poet, ho would have fulfilled his vocation. All humanity, as if by one common Instinct, so pants for sancess, that tone might think to succeed in life must ensure perfeot happiness. The successful o.can tell an...

DEAD MAN'S ROUCK. THE FINDING OF THE GREAT RUBY. A Roarna aBY Q. BOOK II. CHAPTER XI. AND LAST (CONCLVDED.) TELLs HOW AT LAST I FOUND MtY BEVENGE AND THEI GBEAT BUBY. Before I reached Paddington I met the cab returning empty, and on gaining the station at first saw nothing of my man. Though as yet it was early, the platform was already crowded with holiday-makers; a few country dames laden with countless bundles, careworn workers preparing to spend Christmas with friends or parents in their village home, a sprinkling of schoolboys chafing at the slownese of the clock. After a minute or so, I spied Simon Colliver moving among this happy and innocent crowd like an evil spirit I flung myself down upon a bench, and under pretence of sleeping, quietly observed him. Once or twice, as he vaeoed to and fro before me, he almost brushed my knee, so close was he-so clos that I had to clutch the bench tightly for fear I should leap up and throttle him. He did not notice me. Doubtless he thought...

A DREAM PHANTASY. I.—THE THEORY. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 12 May 1888

A DREAM PHANTASY. Br O,. . ADAes, Et THa 'Evooa.' I.-THs THEORT. SThere is nodoubt that John Gorhtm often felt bored when I tries to draw htm into die.. oelsiens that he was pleased to term ' purely speculative;' infact, he often gave very plain and blunt expression to his annoyance. He was a physician, and prided himself on being ' practical.' This qualiiy, no doubt, has its uses, but it need not necessarily include an utter lack of esympathy wi-h everything that cannot be absolutely demonstrated. How ever, I have no intention of railing at John's peculiarities, for he wee an excellent fellow. We occupied a suite of rooms together in a desirable part of the city, and to the poet of the outer door was a sign reading ' John Gorbham, Physician and Surgeon.' Neither of us was married. One evening I pinned him down to a dis cussion on the subject of dreams. I had lately been reading some interesting articles on those mysterious activities of the mind which come into play only when the o...
