A Word to Barbers. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 11 April 1885
A Word; to Barbers . After you have thoroughly soaped your customer's face, seize him by the nose and begin operations. Thi~ eableshim to breathe through his ears. In your conversation ask, as many questions as possible that require an immediate answer. Swallowing soap .don't injure a person seri ously. It is considered very unprofessional for'a barber to brush his .customer's coat. If the boy happens to be absent,' let the customer brush his own cobat. Never fail to remind a man that his head is full of dandruff.: The. tonsorial artist .who neglects this plain duty doesnt know any more about his business than a barber., ,:; , Do not think of selling your "'Egyptian Lustral " for more than five shillingi.a bottle.

Dictionary and Moral Code for Daily Use. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 11 April 1885
Dictionary and Moral Code L for Daily Use. Lie-A falsehood. A very wicked thing for other folks to tell. When I do:itnmy self it is just a little fib. Can't help it some times, 'you know. Thief--One who steals things. People who steal are sent to prison. :But ifirich people take things belonging to other fdlk, we call them " kleptomaniacs,"'and feel very sorry for tliem, poor dears I '.

People I have Known. THE PROFESSOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 11 April 1885
People I have Known. THE PROFESSOR. , Stories of absent-minded people are so numerous, diversified and exaggerated that doubts are entertained of the existence of an absent-minded person, and, yet they are numerous. Generals, managers, statesmen, past and present, are all notably absent minded. So it follows Ithat men of great learning, through the, presence of knowledge, have an absence of mind. The gentleman who rocked the coals on his knee, and put his baby on the fire, can have had but little regard for the. penalties of infanticide; and, again, the absence of mind which prompted a certain man to brush his hair with the looking glasst an 6look into the back of the brush, must have been: owing to the undue use of a spirituous compound. Now to my sketch. ...... We never knew him by any other name than the "Professor." What he professed to know, or, rather not to know, is a matter of mystery. He was generally habited in a :thread-bare long frock.coat,,with.just enough bdutt6ns abse...

Parqtiac [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 11 April 1885
Fifty tons of preserved rabbits have been shipped from Westland, New Zealand, for England. These poor animals ivill forget their rabbit-ual reticence and cry aloud, " 0 preserve us I" S.A German paper says ," Bismarck is. danc ing on a volcano." Our Irish contributor thinks he'll lava narrow escape from being blown up if he fools too 'much with the "crater.", Generally, when a man fools with the "crater,"' the " blowing' up" dosen't take place until he reaches home, we've been told. Some editors have a very happy way of expressing themselves. A Colorado editor, referring to a recent lynching,says, " There was no regular 'trial in the case of John Flanders yesterday. He had an interview in 'the woods with a few friends, and it is perfectly safe that Johni will not burgle any more." Mrs. )De Max, on returning to herhouse from a walk, went into the kitchen and said to the cook: " Matilda, I hear from the neighbors that you have been having visitors here while I was away. That: must not...
A Talk with El Mahdi. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 11 April 1885
A Talk with El I?ahdi. El Mahdi is a man of plans, as the English forces in Egypt have long ,ago learned, and every bit of news from Soudain concerning the False Prophet is of interest. The followiing comes from an Arab source, and is in the form of an interview in an Egyptian paper, published in Paris for several years, and bearing the strange name of Abou Naddara, or The Man with 8'Spec tacles. A merchant of Khartoum reports his interview with Mohammed Ahmed, El Mahdi. It will be noticed that in order to quiet the jealousies raised against him by those of the Mussulmans who feared that his assumed religious mission and title of Mahdi .or... Prophet? might .injure, the clerical authority of the Sultan, Mohammed Ahmed declares that he is only a patriot fighting for his country's independence, surrendered to the British by Tewfik, the present Khedive or Viceroy of Egypt. The Khartoum mer chant writes as follows: Having been summoned by the hero of heroes, the lioneof the valley, the ...
An Inside Lubricator. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 11 April 1885
An Inside Lubricator. Just before the New Zealand chief Ta wahio left England, an agent for a new pomade left a bottle of the compound, no doubt thinking that when the chief had used it he would, no doubt, push it on-perhaps take an agency in New Zealand. Tawahio evidently had no idea of its being sent to him as a special lubricator. He unscrewed the lid of the bottle and smelt it; the scent evidently delighted 'him, as he literally howled with pleasure. He then called for the Maori equivalent for a spoon, but a slight. delay occurring, he scooped out the pomade with the handle of a tooth brush and ate the whole of it with avidity; When: it was ex plained to him that it was not intended as a tonic, but for the hair, he appeared surprised and. rubbed his stomach to signify that. it was good,
