Pastoral prospects are becoming lees bright; water and feed being very deli. oient on some of. the leading stock routes, theb Seventy-mile track being very bad. Other stook routes are, however, in fair condition. In Wagga Wagga and other districts the ravages committed by conntlese mire are addihg to the difflonulties of the pantorllaits.

'I mnat indeed be getting old and stiff,' he eald; 'still, I care little for that compared with the trouble of my teeth,' and then he sighed deeply, and tried to munch a lea' or ewo with hie gums, for ha had no teeth to speak of, and this was what grieved him so much. This bear, I may tell you, had once been a great dandy, and the leader of all that was fteaion and high tone in native bear land. Like all dandies, he was vain andconceit...

SMALL JOINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 19 May 1888

SMALL JOINTS. English cookery (says a writer in " The Queen") bas improved in the last twenty years quite as rapidly as our taste in dress and in house decoration. Twenty years ago our menus were a monotonona repetition of large joints, ood meat, and hash Abonu that time diner a la Russe began to creep into fashion, and soups and made dishes be came more general. The preseut writer re members that it was then considered rather a joke when a certain lady, the mistress of a large house, spoke of a " leg of mutton at one end and on apple-tart at the other" as a good dinner. But nowadayasuch simplicity could certainly not be fon·d at all in any rich woman aceoustomoe to society. I do not wish to say a word in favour of luxury; the plainer the food the healthier the feeder. But physicians teach us that freshly cooked meat is lighter and more digestible than that whihon has been warmed op or re-cooked. It therefore follows that large joints are only suitable for large families, and that t...

At eight of a man he will skulk into the brush and get away as fact as he oan. When several lions are in company, however, their boldness is vast y iacreased.

WHY THEY FOUGHT STANLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 19 May 1888

WHY THEY FOUGHT STANLEY. During Stanley's first great trip down the Congo, his little party for hundreds of miles heard almost constantly the thunder of the big war drums. At many a bend of the river they saw the canoes of she natives pushing out from the shore filled with cowling savages, bent on the destrucation of the little band, who wished for nothing so moch as to glide peacefully down stream to the sea. It is not always easy to fathom the exact motives that in pire the acts of unocivilised peoples, and now that the whiles are well established on the Con. o, some of them have inquired with great interest of the natives what they thought of Stanley when he first appeared to teem, and why they gave him such an unfrrendly reception. A conversation that the Rev. Mr. Bentley had with a native at Bolobo on this subject a while ago gives an interesting insight into the workings of the savage mind. " Why did the Bayanei attack the white man?" Mr. Bentley asked. "Oh, we did not attack ...

But tossed it and tossed it Till it grew long ana wide. From a very small lie, sir, It grew deep end high, sir, Tall it reached to the sky, sir, And frightened the moon; For she hid her sweet face, sir, In a veil of cloud-lace, sir, At toe dreadful disgrace, sir, That had happened at neon. This lie brought forth others, Dark sisters and brothers, And fathers and mothere A terrible crew; And whise headlong they hurried The people they florried And troubled and worried, As lies always do.

It is not the sobering of you I desire; but I want you, for my girl's sake, as well as your own, to remomber the hazards as well as the joys of human life. And so- ' My dear father-in*-law, if I may call you so a day.before the time, it is not every man that has two wedding eves in a life-time. And, again, the man who has must be of a very, very pliant heart if he find a tithe of the joy at the second that he had at the first. As for me, I am no such man. You are going to give me your May-blossom to morrow. She will be mino for life. I shall never think of another May-blossom as in any degree possible. Therefore, my dear air, if I am hilarious beyond the bounds of reason, you must forgive me, and bothink you of the cause.' 'Right, my son, Nevertheless, I have a favour to ask of you....
