Death of Mr Walpole. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 4 April 1885

Death of Mr Walpole We regret to have to announce the death of Mr John Walpole a very old colonist and for a number of years a resi dent of the Cliffe. He arrived and settled on the Cliff about 1855 and for a great many years was engaged in the Custom House boat, he also was for some time the drill instructor of the old volunteer force at the Cliff by whom he was held in much esteem, no only as drill instructor, but also in his private capacity as a citi zen and we believe that there was not a more popular man on the Cliff than our late lamented friend. After leaving the Cliff he went to Belfast and remained there some years as senior boatman, after which he retired from the service on a pension, and came back to the Cliff where he had spent the best part of his days and settled on a small farm on the shores of Swan Bay where he breathed his last after a few days illness. The funeral yesterday was well attended which shows that his old friends wished to pay the last tribute to one w...

A Swedish Godiva. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 11 April 1885

A Swedish Godiva. The 2nd of February in Sweden 'is con sidered the midwinter-day. In the era of Paganism it was a great festival in honor of the heroine Gca or Goja, deified under the name of Disa, to whom the whole month was consecrated besides. The legend of Goa is very curious., It states that at one time, when the country was visited by a frightful famine, the Thing, or National Assembly, decided that, in order to alleviate the general dis tress, it would be necessary to lput to. death a part of the population, especially the old and infirm. Goa alone dared to protest loudly, and claimed to be able to propose a means of remedying the dearth, which would prove more efficacious as well as more human. The King ordered the execution of the decree to be ppstppned;. but in the in terim, desiring to test:'the sagacity of the young girl, and to cohfound her audacity, he sent her word he would only receive.. her on condition. that she would come to his dwell. ing neither on foot nor on ...
