On Butter-making. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 11 April 1885

On Butter-making. Butter is the mature fruit of the full-blown cow. It is the greatest effort of her life. The cow toils not, neither does she spin, yet I say unto you, Solomon idnall his glory could not beat her on the hand-made, or rather milk maid, butter. This subtle joke I have re paired and newly upholstered for use during the winter. Butter comes from the cow in a liquid state. It is quite a trick to win her confi dence so that she will yield it up to a total stranger. I once sought to woo the lacteal fluid from the milk retort of a large speckled cow to whom I was a comparative stranger. She wasn't one' of those blooded cows that look as though they have been cuit out of a sheet of paper with a pair of scissors. " She was a low cow, with coarse instincts, born in obscurity. ' Her brow was low, but she wore her tail high, and she was haughty--oh, so haughty. The young man who had hitherto acquired the milk from this. cow desired one day to hie him away to a neighboring villag...

Lines Addressed to a Performing Elephant. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 11 April 1885

Lines Addressed to a Performing Elephant. Ami--" Gentle Troubadour." Oh I creature most gigantic! Now cease each curious antic, Or you will drive me frantic, Charming Elephant. Sweet countenance you show, sir, When up your trunk you throw, sir; Then all'your ivories glow, sir, Bowitching Elephant. Thou art no vile abortion. I love each grand proportion, And thy sweet trunk's contortion, Enchanting Elephant. When from thy swan.like throat, sir, Thou roll'st each dulcet note, sir, 'Tis then on thee I dote, sir, Angelic Elephant. Each creature you transcend, sir; You've a tail at each end, sir : My sonnet hence is penned, sir, To thee, sweet Elephant. Then creature, most gigantic I Pray cease each curious antic, Or you will drive me frantic, Ecstatic Elephant.

He had had a fairly successful season, had ridden many winners, includin'g one dr two big handicap affairs, and, moreover, reckoned amongst his masters some of the leading aristocrats of the turf, including Lord Gooseberry, a youthful noble man just emerging from his school days, who bid fair to have a gigantic stud and give Bobby remunerative employment.

Mr. Jenkins's Mistake. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 11 April 1885

Mr. Jenkins's Mistake. It is a truthful saying, that we never know what we may come to. If anyone had toldme a fortnight ago that I should steal a dog, I should have repelled the assertion with scorn. Indeed, if the size of the person making it had permitted, I'm afraid I should have kicked him. And yet it's a fact, I have stolen a dog. Three weeks ago I had occasion to go from London to Manchester, to introduce an impor tant invention to one of the leading manufac turers. As I knew I should not be more than two days absent, I took for luggage only a light hand-bag, with which I walked from my house to the station. Just as I reached it I heard a familiar bark behind me, and turning round, found that Mingo, my favorite pug-dog, had managed to follow me, and was dancing round my feet, flourishing his tail in a self-satisfied way, as if expecting to be complimented on his achieve ment. "You bad dog I" I exclaimed, "how dare you follow me like this ?" The tail dropped, but continued to ...

Strained Relations. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 11 April 1885

Strained Relations. My relations with a neighbor of mine are somewhat strained. Two years. ago I moved into the beautiful cottage tenement where I 'now reside, and at once entered upon the most cordial relations with the man who lives just west bofme. Oar families, also, 'seemed to be exceedingly harmonious, and all our lives were: fall of the promise of un interrupted sociability. . This happy state of affairs continued for six months, when=onie day my seven years old boy came to me with a grievance in the form of a black eye.' He narrated the cir cumstances under which he contracted the complaint, and I at once concluded that he had caught the malady from the twelve years old son of my neighbor. I at once quar rantined against the son of my neighbor above mentioned, and nailed up ahole in the fence, through'which we'had kept up an'un-' failing stream of harmony flowing for six happy moons. My neighbor observed the watchful care I was exercising, and retaliated by driving a plug in...

Be fore going, however, he charged them to stay in their own yard and not to go to the circus, which was in town. When the bad boy had eaten his dinner, which included half of his brobher's, he said, " Come, Willie, let's go and see the circus." " Oh no, brother," replied Willie, " that would be disobeying dear father. I initend to stay at home and cut soine wood for ex. ercise, then,,as pa has oftensaid, I will get a' new .crickt,. bat.'!

STITU DAY, APIRIL11, 1885 The Queenscliff correspondent of :the :Ballarat Courierpublishes the' following! --" Great credit has been given .to the naval forces for the-manner in which the attack on the batteries was conductedon Saturday night. The truth i., it was, meant for a surprise, but it was not. The Queenscliff men were all on the alert. in quick' time, but there'was no pro vision made for ' n attack from the rear. Men could easily, have been. landed, under cover of the night, and scaled "Jervois' Folly" (thebrick wall) and gone for the men at the guns. In fact, if the sho?e party had received instructions to attack simultaneously by signbl from the fleet, the former 'could have easily got in through the gates and prevented a shot being fired from the guns at the battery. The brick wall is no obstruction, and could be easily scaled, as I sawimen jumping over it when the gates were closed, with a sort of Highland fling step. The opportunities offered to the comman der of the f...
