THE BLACK CAMEL. BT TH'IE HARQUIHB D LANZ.A. CHA^IER I. On.a certain.bleak 'evening, during the -winter of '83, I was sitting alone in the room I occupied 6n the. top floor of an fashionable New York apartment house. I was just recovering-or supposed to be recovering-from an attack of illniss, and I whs still very weak. ,The doctor, in fact, had'left me but . little while before, as sinring me gravely .that I mist be very careful if I desired to regain my nsual good health. But, to tell the truth, I was somewhat self-willed, and not apt to regard .attentively what I was inclined to call the doctor's "notions." As soon as lie had dis appeared, therefore, I sprang recklessly from the couch where 1 had been lying, and drawing a chair up to the fire, took a book from the table and began to read. 1 felt a little chilly as I threw off the eider down quilt that covered me; but J quieted smy conscience by thinking that the beat from the bed of coals before me would, soon make me warm again....

JOKES NEW AND OLD. (MositfOiD.) A B?OGAR'S MODESTY. A certain benevolent Parisian has for a length of time been iit the habit of giving alms to a beggar who regularly-takes his stand: in ,front of. his benefactor's house. The beggar, .who considered the donation as a just debt, and who, moreover, has his own, ideas on the subject of book-eeooping, lately requested his charitable patron to advancehim a month's salary. nIEi aIAJESTY BLOCKING THE WAY. One day some years ago, when Her Majesty was standing on the public road near Balmoral, sketching the castle from a particular point, 'a flock of sheep ap proached. Her Majesty, being intent on her work, took little notice of. the flock, and merely moved a little nearer the side of the road. A boy in charge of the sheep shouted at the top of a stentoriari voice, "Stan' out 'o the road, 'oman, and let the sheep gae by !" Her Majesty not moving out of the way quite sd: fast .as the shepherd wished, he again shouted, ' Fat are ye standin'.tl...

THE BANQUET. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 6 January 1886
THE BANQUET. At the Town Hall, in the evening, the &nbsp; Premier was entertained at a banquet given in his honor. The Mayor of Mudgee, Mr. Cassin, presided, and a distinguished company, numbering some 60 persons, sat down to table. The chairman proposed the health of "Sir John Robertson and the Ministry," in highly complimentary terms, his. remarks, being, frequently cheered. Sir.John Robertson, who was enthusias- tically received, castigated those papers which had declared him to be mentally and physically incapacitated for the position of Premier. He said that it was true that he himself had begun to think that it was nearly time to drop out of public life, but it was not his nature to run away when they had dangers ahead. They were now in a dan- gerous time, and he conceived it to be his duty, as an old servant of the people, not to make his bow while this country was in trouble, or until its usual prosperity had been resumed. When he and Sir HenryParkeswent out of offic...
