ANXIOUS FOR WIVES. TOWNS WITHOUT ONE MARRIAGEABLE . GIRL. "We can accommodate 10,000 girls with husbands in Dakota on 90 days' notice.. We have published in the Fargo Argus 2000 letters from as many young women, and have made many matches. In May, 1880, there was only one marriage able girl in Fargo, and to-day, with a population of 12,000, we have only four unmarried girls. In Deadwood, at the height of its mining fever, in 1879-80, there were 5000 bachelors and only six mar ringeable girls. You get a great many tales in the East about the lone young women who take up farms in Dakato and reject all offers of marriage. Why, they don't live in the'Territory a year before they are wedded. "Most of our men went to Dakota When they were boys, and that is the reason we have so many bachelors there-thousands of them, all willing to marry. The strange thing about it all is, most of them know lots of girls in the Eastern towns from which they came, and make no effort to, wed them. They won'...

THE TWO FAMILIES. A pompous individual is negotiating for taking a house. Landlady: "You will, then, take the house, sir P" "Yes, I will take it; agreement and such like things are, of course, superfluous.

STORY OF A "PERSONAL" CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 8 January 1886
STORY OF A " PERSONAL " CORRESPONDENCE. A funny story is told of a lady who was foolish enough'to answer a " personal " in a daily-paper, which stated that a young man was desirous of.making the acquaint-. ance of a young lady, with a view to matrimony. She carried on a long corres pondence with the advertiser, taking, hoivw ever, the precaution to have her letters copied by a confidential friend. She. always sent the copies and retained the originals. Her answers came regularly, but her correspondent was quite as cautious as she was herself, for he always employed a type writer, and she had no means of becoming familiar with his handwriting: Finally, after a good deal of gush, a meet ing was agreed upon between the pair, and the lady was somewhat surprised when she arrived at the place 'appointed to see' her brother,. wearing, in his button-hole the flower which was decided upon as the means of identification. They both ac knowledged their folly by indulging in a hearty laugh, and ...
THE ART OF BORROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 8 January 1886
THE ART OF BORROWING. Bubb Dodington was one day walking down Bow-street, at the time it was well inhabited, and " resortedto by gentry for lodgings," when a borrowing acquaintance rushed from the other side of the way, and expressed great delight at meeting him; "for," said he, "I am wonderfully in want of a guinea." Dodington-winced, and taking out his purse, showed that he only had half-a-guinea. "A thousand thanks !" exclaimed. the persecutor, half forcing the coin from between the owner's fingers; "that will do very well for the present;" and cleverly changed the subject to a good story. When they had parted, the brazen borrower returned to Dodington, saying, "By-the-bye, when will you pay me that half-guinea P" ' Pay you!. what do you mean ?' "Why, I intended to borrow a guinea of you, and have onlygot half; but I'm not in a hurry for t'other. Name your own time,.only pray keepit !"..: ... ....

UNCLE NAHUM'S WEDDING. Uncle Nahum Nixon was reading the paper in his back parlour. "If you please, Mr. Nixon," said the trim little maid-servant, "Mr. Marmaduke Bourne wants to see you-if you please, sir, if you are quite at leisure." "Mr. Marmaduke Bourne, eh ?" The old gentleman took off his spectacles and laid them upon the folded newspaper. " Ask him in, Polly." And Mr. Marmaduke Bourne came in a tall, fresh-coloured young fellow with sparkling grey eyes, brown hair, all in a mat of curls, and a straight Greek nose that seemed as if it might have been bor rowed from some ancient statud of Apollo. "Well, sir?" said Mr. Nixon. "Well, sir," counter-interrogated Mr. Bourne, "did you get my letter P" "I got your letter," said Uncle Nahum. "So you want to marry my niece, Faith?" "Yes, sir," valiantly acknowledged Mr. Marmaduke Bourne. "Alh I" nodded Uncle Nahum. "But perhaps you don't understand all the facts of the case."

JUST THE SOUP. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 8 January 1886
JUST T'HE SOUP, A certain commander-in-chief believed that no true Briton could fight properly without plenty of nourishing soup. Nutri tive soup was his main strategic resource. He was once, it is related, inspecting an Indian station, when his tender care gave rise to a lovely story. The men were at dinner; but, in order to prevent the food from spoiling, officers were told to let things go on as usual until the general' actually entered the bungalow. The staff 'went through bungalow No. 1; and, be fore this portion of the inspection was finished, the men in bungalow No. 2 had nearly finished dinner.. When the' dig nitaridesstrode into No. 2, every soldier at once stood at attention. The chief dipped a spoon into a pannikin and tasted the soup delicate~ly A smile of joy crept over his war-worn countenance, and he said: "This is excellent soup. I never tasted better soup. It is a soup that reflects credit on everyone concerned in providing it. It is just the soup I approve of." The...

Hammond, and consisting of 16 gentlemen from Mar rickville, West Botany, and Petersham, waited upon Mr. Garrard with reference to the reclamation of Cook's River and Shea's Creek. A number of resolutions passed at a public meeting were handed.to the Minister, and the filthy state of the locality, and the inconvenience to the public was dwelt on at some length. It was stated that if fever took root it would find everything so congenial to its growth that there would be great difficulty in, eradicating it. Several samples were in troduced to illustratethe state of pollution of both Shea's Creek and Cooks River. It was suggested that they be opened, but it is needless to say the Minister for Works was not so inquisi tive. A few new shillings wore shown that had been left in some of the samples for a short time, and were quite black in colour. Mr. Garrard said that the largo: ...

SUBWAY AT ABsHFsLDS. A strong deputation from the Ashfield Borough Council was introduced to the Minister for Public Works, this morning, by Messrs. Hammond and Honsen, M.P.'s. 'heir object was to ask for the construc tion of a subway on the railway line in Ashfleld, which has already been applied for eight times. Mr. John Pope, the Mayor of Ashfield, said the previous applications had been for a subway at Alt-street, but as the question of compensation appeared to be as abso lute, he was prepared to donate a piece of land in Bland-street for the purpose of a subway. This land was worth £1500, but the Government could have it for nothing if they gave a favourable answer with re gard to the subway at Bland-street within the period of seven days. Several other gentlemen having spoken, Mr. Garrard said he hoped Mr. Pope would extend the present to fourtdoen days, as he desired to make an examination of the localities before he decided upon the offer.

LAST MOMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 8 January 1886
LAST MOMENT. The Board of Health has issued a cir cular pointing out what preventitive meca sures should be taken in the event of an outbreak of cholera in the colony. The inquest on the body of the late Mr. Senior, second in command of the Geo graphical Society's New Guinea Expedi 'tion, was re-commenced at the St. Leonard's Police Court. A report of the proceedings at the inquiry up to the time of our going to press, and some interest ing notes on the same subject, will be found elsewhere. Tihe business before the Balmain Police Court this morning was unimportant. A cross case of assault-Grant v. Buckly and Buckly v. Grant, occupied the time of the court, and resulted in the dismissal of both cases. In the case Watson v. Reilly, threatening words, the defendant was bound to keep the peace for six months. Messrs. Batson and Co. have issued the neatest pocket-almanac we have seen this year. Its dimensions are only about an inch and a-half long by aninch wide, whilst notwithstanding ...
