CHINESE POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 10 May 1884

CHINESE POLITICS. The Chinese have a peculiar theory that the proper duration of. a dynasty should not exceed one hundred years-a term which the reigning family has already greatly over stepped. Beside this singular superstition,. the Chinese have another deeply rooted idea tha~tthe line of descent has not been pre served intact by the reigning dynasty. A Court: intrigue, supposed 'to ' have occurred during the reign of Yang Ching, the' iucces sor of Kang Hi, is said to have occasioned the rumor, which nowadays is' widely credited. :And so both' superstition and national anti. pathy 'have' part in the prevailing strong feeling against the Ta Tsing dynasty, so th'at now'it is not a little difficult to define' the 'real positioni of the people with regard to the p?resent sovereign. China is overrun with `secret organisations whose real aimi' is the abolition 'of the(Tartars and installation of a Chinese monarch, versus ac' mewus. The famous White Lily sect of the northern and central ...

THE' CIVILISATION OF .Th TONGATAB00. Th- following clever specimen. of rhyming ,appeared in the Dublin. University Magazine: King Jungareegoo, of Tongataboo : . -Was a:terrible savage just six feet,two, Who ne'er.worea coat, nor a vest, nor a shoe; His garments in fact were remarkably few, Consisting of feathers, and fibres run through The bones of his foes, that in battle he slew (And some of the latter were toothsome to chew). But during his wars he had found 'time to woo Queen Wongaree Wang from the isles of Peloo, A lady adorned with the brightest tattoo Of mauve and of yellow, of crimson and blue, And she loved him as savage wives only can do. King Jungaree's island was charming to view; The plantain and yam in luxuriance grew, The delicate palr and the slender bamboo.. To thread the dense forest required a clue. The animals found were the horned cariboo, The hardy wild pig, and the bison-like gnu, And a species of miniature kangaroo; While over the island the sea-gull flew, Th...

Never was a Mother. " The airs women give themselves" when 'the baby comes," Charles, Lamb observes, " '!are past all bearing.

It is evident that Charles was never a mother.

Constancy. HE SAID: [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 17 May 1884

Constaney. SHE SAID: And leaned as he spoke on the pasture bars, That he vowed by the heavens blue By the silvery moon and the shining stars To ever prove leal and true. 'Men change, 'tis true," he said, " but oh I Bilieve me, my own dear love, Affection like mine, as time will show, Has a strength that no power can move." SHE SAID : ` : - "No fear or douibts, beloved, have I, For deep in this heart of mine Is a love that will never die and' dim, But will ask for' aye-like `thine 1" He gave her a ring and a fond caress, . While her tears like a torrent fell, As with falt'ring words and in sore distress, He bade her a long farewell. But the man in the moon, who had often viewed_. -. Such tender scenes, I ween, Winked knowingly then, as the lovers stood Beneath, in the silvery sheen. Two summers with blossom and bud are gone, Two winters with frost and snow; And again thl manin?? the moon looked down On thd whirling world below.

MARCUS OF R0ME: THE BOY MAGISTRATE. [BY E. S. BROOKS in St. Nicholas.] (Concluded from last week.) The days of Marcus's miigistracy were soon over, and when the great festival of Jove was ended, and the magistrates had returned to the city, the lad gave up the curule chair and the dress and duties of his office, and retired to his mother's house, bearing with 1 him the thanks of the magistrates, the ap proval of the Emperor, and the applause of the people. The villa of the matron Domitia Calvilla, the mother of Marcus, stood embowered in ielightful gardens on the Ccelian hill, the most easterly of the famous Seven Hills of 1 Rome. In an age of splendour, when grand palaces lined the streets and covered the bill slopes of the imperial city; when fortunes were spent upon baths and gardens, or wasted on a gala dress, or on a single meal, this pleasant house was conducted uipon a plan that suited the home ways of the I mother and the quiet tastes of the son.

Agricultural, &[?] BRIEF NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 17 May 1884

BRIEF NOTES. If a man cannot understand a tree, he will not get much out of it, or off it. Jerseys make better butter than any other breed-better grain and better flavor. Ashes applied to potatoes should be placed over the seed pieces after the latter have been placed in furrows or drills. Don't breed too many kinds of fowls at the same time, unless you are going into the busi. ness. Four will make your hands full. Cows cannot be treated all in a herd as simply cows; but each cow has an individuality, and so-: has each class and grade; and this must be felt by the owner. Fistula is caused by an injury to any part and the burrowing of pus which cannot escape---' through the muscular tissues. It is most fre quent in the poll and withers. The "general purpose cow" is an impossible animal. Let each farmer decide whether all circumstances point to a beef, a milk, or a but ter breed, and choose his stock accordingly. Aside from the use of the fruit itself, the wood of the olive tree, espe...
