Our Grandparents. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 14 January 1888

Ousr Grandzuparents. BY IIARYOT HOLT. Some poet has left behind him the thought that " women would be annels if 'twere not for growing old," and doubtless for this in stinctive reason women's birthdays are not such harbingers as they might be. In short. they are not worth noticing, but they roll around annually just the same whether or not, and before we know it we arc grand mothers. Three score and ten roll around. and then we live on borrowed time and birthdays are forgotten. Aye, we soon be come the ancestors of rapid posterity. But what childhood is perfect without cs istenc and association of grandparents. I Among the choicest memories of youth which every human being cherishes with a fond. ness that only increases as the years pass on, is tle revered form of grandmother. How noiselessly the slippered feet move about the I house, how soft the cadence of the quivering voice, how gentle her remonstrance, how un obtrusive her questioning, how anxiously does she look for the truant...

Ilr. c anld .7I,-s. JBowser. fY OMis. BOWsE.. The other evening, when 'Mr. Bowser stepped off the tram car at our corner, one of his suspender buttons flew off. This may or may not have been the first time in his life that he had lost a suspender-button, but he took it so much to heart that I guess it was the first. He came into the house with the look of a man who had been deeply injured, and shouted at me : " Do you know whether I've got a single button left on my garments 1" " What is it, dear Y" "Don't what-is-it-dear me, Mrs. Bowser I If you:were half a wife you'd look over my clothes once in five or ten years and catch up the loose buttons !" " Why, there's only one button gone, and I'll have that fixed in two jiffys. Let me get my needle and-" " No, I won't; It has been plain to me for the last year that sooner or later I'd have to do my own sewing, and now the climax has arrived." "Just one minute, Mr. Bowser."

HURLINGHAM NUISANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 21 January 1888

HURLINGHAM NUISANCE. WE are pleased to see that a deputa tion of property owners and business men waited on the Hon. T. Bent, calling his attention to the intolerable nuisance arising from the holding of the Hurlinghain races. The deputa tion pointed out that the carryings-on aýtheses-ci ra-and language used were' disgraceful in the extreme and so unbearable, that ten ants nwere' compelledl to leave their domioiles and seek other localities with a purer air; while property was so far depreciated as to be almost un saleable. Mr. Bent expressed his surprise that such a state of things existed, and cordially, sympathised with the object of the deputation. He moreover promised . that the "lease," which expires in April next, would not be renewed. The rospect able residents of Brighton will. hail this discussion with extreme satisfao tion. No doubt the howling hood lunmswho make the air ring again with their indecencies and blas phemous profanity, and their sup porters in the "press," wi...

NO 0on appears to keep a more watchful eye on the doings of the public than these self-styled paragons of virtue. And they impart instruction and issue edicts, with all the apparent gravity of iein extremely solicitous for their neighlbor's welfare, and entirely careless of their own. The recent deputation re the Christmas trains was an illustration, more or less amusing, of this condition of things. Probably the party finds particular selace', at having put the straight jacket on the community for once so successfully; especially as the re flection is accompanied with the con sciousness of swelling pew rents, and an additional flow of...

ESCAPE FROM THE IEEW ASYLUM. EARLY on Thursday afternoon a cabman, whose name has not transpired, was hailed in Hawthorn by a lady of very prepossessing appea'rance; and dressed in the height of summer fashion. She wanted, she said, to be driven first of all into Melbourne, and cabby, knowing that a faint heart never yet won a lady -air, immediately announced his readiness to take the job, congratu lating himself, no doubt. on the pros pect of 2s 6d an hour for the whole afternoon. Arrived in Melbourne,. the pretty lady called at several places, "making inquiries," she said, for some friends of hers 'whose address she had not got." When' evening came on and the city was emptying into the suburbs, cabby was told to drive to Windsor. Cabby was agreeable. Such a fare is not to be picked up every day. Windsor was reached, and the son of Nimshi was then bade to drive on to Brighton. it was probably somewhere between Elsternwick and Brighton that doubts began first to insinuate themselves...
