THAT DOG. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 17 May 1884

THAT DOG. _ BY ."SILUs. SNELL. , Tify neighbor on the right; has got a dog. He may be a right enough sort of dog, but I don't like him,i don't appreciate hisevident' desire to study my anatomy. He may.think it a laudable ambition in a dog .to want to know how the sinews of my legs would, work betweejh his teeth, but I don't; I haven't a turn for that kind of research. I can't respect a dog who won't let a peaceful citizen stir out of the house without coming' at him with his lips drawn back, growling, barking and coughing, as though he intended coming right through the fence and dining on himi. It isn't pleasant: it's worse than having a fever about. I can remember the time when I walked home of an evening with that air of self-respect which comes of having a vote and a brother in the police force-this was before Muddle got that dog but now I go sneaking by like a burglar,' with a: load of road metal in each lpocket,' and clutching a stick, which has adagger, a revolver, and allsort...

A divorce lawyer advertises " Misfit mar riages.a speciality." It was at the close of .the wedding break fast. One of the guests arose, and, glass in hand,.said': "I drink to the health of the groom. May he see many days like this." The intention was good, but the bride looked as if something had displeased her. A man named Gasbill wished to change his' name because his girl always objected to his figure whenever he'd meter. She said he was too high, and turned him off. It's very easy to start false reports. Just because a woman, while, buying a broom, wanted one with a heavy and strong handle, it was reported around that she was in the. habit of beating her husband. An old bachelor at a wedding feasthad the heartlessness .to offer the;following toast : "' Marriage-the gate through `which the happy lover leaves his enchanted regions,; and returns to earth."
