THE VERY BEST SOCIETY. A TALE OF QUEENSLAND BUSH LIFE. BY EDWARD LEVAN. CHAPTER I.--.TIE BULLOCE-DRIVEa's CAMPr. "Hi ! Hallo ! Turn out there, you swell cove, and put that Billy on! Thinkyou've come out on a blooming picnic, eh? Want your boofs blacked, p'raps, before yer turns out P? Blow me if ever I seed such a cove to take it out of the blankets." " All right I all right!"replied apevish voice from what resembled a roll of blan kets, and then the possessor of the voice slowly shook his covering from him, and, sitting up, gazed about him with an ex pression of the most intense loathing and disgust. His bed had been the earth, maid his covering the bullock-dray with which he was travelling. Over the whole dray and its' loading'a black tarpaulin had been Spread the night previous, which reached to the ground and formed the walls of the shelter.

A VERY GREAT SWELL. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 9 January 1886
A VERY GREAT SWELL. A French paper is responsible for the following curious statement: A London swell who owns neither lands nor dogs, but who has a credit with some tailor, and who can make a pretty good figure, announces to all his acquaintances that he is off for the chase. He quits his lodgings, saying he shall be absent eight or ten days, and buries himself in an obscure part of the city. On the day fixed for his return, he puts on a hunting cos tume of the most admirable out, and strollstowardsthe splashing-house. There, for the modest sum of thleo shillings, he causes himself to be splashed from head to foot. These singular shops have mud from every county, principally from those where the. chase is best. They are luxuriously furnished with mirrors and a wooden horse. .The bargain for the mud is made with the greatest gravity. On the. appearance of our dandy the groom of the establilsmont asks, "From what country does the gentleman wish to return? Staffordshire? Derbyshiro?" ...
SWIMMING. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 9 January 1886
SWIMMING. Many instructions for learning how to swim have been published, but we fear that .only in a few instances have they proved of any advantage. Here, however, is a description from Dr. Marshall, show ing how simple and easy it is to learn to swim:-" In the act of swimmingthe body lies in, but near the surface of the water, and not quite horizontally, thle head being inclined somewhat upwards and thrown back, so as to sink as much of the hinder part of the cranium as possible, and to throw the face above, with the breathing apertures, the nostrils and mouth, up wards and forwards out of the water. A progressive motion is accomplished by p!acing the hands together in front of the sternuim or breast-bone, darting them for ward in the middle line, then sweeping them out with the fingers in contact, the palms overted and turned slightly down wards, through a part of the circle and lastly bringing them quickly inwards to ward the front of the sternum again. In the meantime, whilst ...
WHY YOUNG GIRLS SHOULD NOT MARRY. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 9 January 1886
WHY YOUNG GIRLS SHOULD NOT MARRY. A very young girl is certainly not capable of choosing a husband. She takes it for granted that men are always as she sees them in society-polite, friendly, and on their good behaviour. If she marries early in life the man.who happens to please her fancy, she learns to her sorrow that in nine cases out of ten a man at home and a man in society are widely different beings. Five years at that period of life pro duce a great change in opinions and feelings. We frequently come to detest at 25 what. we admired at 16. .We.ad vanice from the taffy-candy and peanut age to the era of gumdrops and matron glaces, and even in later years to lose our yearnings for those dainties. Similar changes take place in the moral and spiritual nature. Why should we feel the same toward, persons in after life, when we have learned to distinguish between the false and the true, the bad and good, any more than we should like dime novels after we have become acquainted with Th...

MAKING BANK NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 9 January 1886
MAKING BANK NOTES. The following clever trick was recently played upon an avaricious French land lord by a poor, wretched engraver who had got into arrears with his rent: "Give me a little time," said thetenant, "I have discovered a means of paying you soon." "Bah !" returned the landlord, incredu lously. "How, I should like to know ?" "Look hero," replied the ongraver, taking a hundred-franc note mysteriously from a drawer, "that's my last piece of work." "Did you do it i" "Certainly." " You yourself-and not the Bank of France P" "No, it's my work." "Will you trusc me with it for half-an hour ?" And the landlord took the note, and hurried off to the bank. -There they assured him that it was perfectly good, and finally changed it for him. As he hurried hback to his lodger the wretched man's head fairly swam with visions of untold wealth. "My good fellow," he cried, on reaching the house, all out of breath, "how clever you are ! Why don't you make thousand-franc notes P" "For the ver...

" Early in the morning a're port was" received at the cantonments that a large cheeotur had been seen on the rocks near the sea. About nine o'clock a number of'oficers and men assembled at the spot whoro ib' was said Lo hasso bean seen, when, after some search the animal was discovered to be in the recess of an immense rock; dogs were sent in, in the hopes of starting him, bit without effect, they having returned with several wounds. Lieutenant Evan Davis, of the 7th Regi ment, attempted to enter the don, but was obliged to return, finding the passage extremely narrow and dark. He, how ever, attempted it a second time with a pickaxe in his hand, with which he re moved some obstructions that were in the way; and having proceeded a few yards, he heard a noise, which hb conceived to be that of the animal in question.
