MRS. SHAW; THE LATE PRINCE IMPERIAL'S NURSE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 12 April 1884

MRBS. SHAW.j; THE LATE PRINCE IMPERIAL'S NURSE. Visitors to Paris during the' meretricious glories of the Second 'Empire may possibly recall. to mind that amidst: the glare and. glitter of that feverish epoch, one wholesome and interesting sight was. constantly to be seen in the!Tnileries gardens when the court was in residence at the palace-a bright. looking child playing with his English nurse; and the spectators were particularly at. tracted by .the devoted attachment that appeared to exist between them. The child was the;Prince Imperial of France; and his attendant, the pleasant-looking Yorkshire woman, was known in Paris as Mrs. Shaw. A curious history is connected with her en trance into the imperial household, the story of which the writer obtained from what she -believes to be a well-authenticated source.' " Mrs. Shaw was a valued nurse in a family where she hliad lived for some time, when one norning she. startled her mistress with the announcement that she had dreamt she w...

A Real Irish Gentleman. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 12 April 1884

A Real, Irish Gentleman. One day, in a crowded Collingwood car, A.lady was standing. She had ridden quite Sfar, And seemed much disposed to indulge in a frown, As nobody offered to let her sit down. And many there sat who, to judge by their 1 dress, Iight a gentleman's natural instincts pos sess, But who, judged by their acts, make us firmly believe . That appearances often will sadly.deceive: There were some most intently devouring Sthe news, ,; nd some, thro' th' windlows;, njpying the views.; . Andl others indulged in a make-believe nap While the lady still stood holding on by the strap. . At lst' a ypung'g Irishman, fresh fromin the s'd, o .. Arose with-a smile :and a comical' hod, Which said quite as plain as in words could be stated, That the lady should sit in the place he'd vacated. "'Excuse me," said Pat,"that I caused you to wait So long before offering to give you: a sate, But iri troth I was only just waiting to see If there wasn't more gintlemin here beside me,"

HOW SHE.CAPTURED THE ROBBER: Two or three centuries ago (as near as we can remember) a family named:Myron lived, in Eigland, inl a wildi and uncuiltiiated por tion of the country.

A FAMOUS BETTING MAN. AN EXTRAORDINARY MATCHMAKER. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 12 April 1884

A FAMiOUS BETTING MAN. AN;'EXTRAORDINARY MATCH MAKER. In ::Ithe present article Ipurpose leaving the beaten' track, and wandering into the bye ways of betting. Our grandfathers and great grandfathers, as all who are acquainted with the'history of British sport know well, were passionately fond of sporting matches, on which immense sums were generally wagered. In fact, there was more heavy betting on matches than on almost any other form of sport; and many of the most extraordinary feats of strength and endurance and skill owe their origin and accomplishment to the match-making mania which then prevailed, and to the spirited wagering which was its nseparable concomitant. It is my intention this week to give a sketch of one of the most daring and reckless of the match-makers of sixty years ago, who was ready at any mo ment to shoot or walk or drive or ride against any mortal man for any conceivable sum, and whose desperate plunging on every -amn h in whichi heiwas interested was pheno...

HOLIDAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 12 April 1884

•? ? IHOLIDAYS. All'wdrores, says a medical contemporary, if they are to last, must have holidays. For some persons and for some occupations frequent short holidays are best; with other natures, and in other circumstances, only comparatively long periods of release from routine are of:service. "Few real workers, if aiy, caniafely continue to deny themselves at least a yearly holiday. Mere rest, that is -mere cessation from work, while it is better than unbroken toil, does not recreate the fairly vigorous so `thoroughly as does a com plete change of activity from accustomed channiiiels. For the stronger worker, either with brain or miuscla, diversion of activity recreates better than rest alone. The whole body feeds as it works.and grows as it feeds. Rest may check expenditure of force, but it is chiefly by expending energy that the stores of energy can be replenished. We mostly need holidays because our ordinary daily life tends to sink into a? narrow groove o.f routine exertion, wo...

A PRINTERIAN HINT. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 12 April 1884

A PRINTERIAN HINT. A poor old printer stands silent and glum,. With types well poised 'tween finger and thumb, And eyes slanting up, expressive of doubt If the words he has set are clearly made out, And a look on his face that tells of his scorn Of the old-fashioned quill and ink in a horn, And the scrawls on his copy, meant to be words, That look like the tracks of snails or of birds. He strains his poor eyes, and rubs up his hair, And bites his moustache, and searches with care; But patience and learning, and good natured will Won't turn into sense these words with a quill. He peers up and down for the cap letter O, As a key to the noun that puzzles him so He spies out a letter, and has it, he thinks, When lo ! it's an i in the spelling of "sphinx." He rubs up his glasses and starts off again To get at the thread of the intricate train, And a tear trickles down on the end of his nose As he carefully quarries the word of the prose, He's doubtful of p, and thef, and thej " They're m...

AN ARTIST'S ESCAPE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 12 April 1884

gAN ARTIST'S ESCAPE. I was sketching during. the Carlist cam paign of 1874 on the banks of the Bidassoa, taking a pelimninary ramble along the French side of that frohtier river beforo crossing over to follow wherever rebel or Royalist presented the most picturesque aspect. I. felt perfectly safe on French soil, the neu trality of which was sacred. Thus confident, I wandered (says Irving Montagu)' oi some four or five miles by the side of the river till I came upon a quaint Posada, on the oppo site bank, where several noisy Carlists were drinking the health of the Don, while others were singing still more. loudly the Spanish equivalent i for " Charley is my darling." There was something striking about this little bit of Basque soldier life which at once brought me to a standstill. Here I had a subject only forty yards distant, which I 'was at perfect liberty to sketch in all security as long as I pleased. Opening, therefore; my camp-stool and sketch-book, I was soon' hard at work. S...

All had gone on, this day as yesterday this year as last, beyond the memory or tra dition of the islanders.

Death of Prince Leopold     On Sunday last the above church was draped in black. The Rev. H. J. Wilkinson preached   both morning and evening, and in each ser- mon referred to the sad event as one to be universally regretted. The life of the late Prince, and the example shown by him   might well be studied and copied by all, in- asmuch as he devoted his energies to mat- ters of reform as well as other subjects. The interest of the poor was an object to which he raised his voice, and was always a sym- pathising friend, who on all occasions devo- ted himself to better their condition. The rev. gentleman, also alluded to the late rail- way accidents, by which so many persons were relieved from earthly strife. He said it taught us the necessity of always being pre-   pared for the end by living a life of virtue, truth and love. Suitable hymns were sung at each service by the choir, and the Dead March in Saul was played by ...
