Squibs [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 25 April 1885
There's a proverb that says you must laugh to grow fat; So its meaning to follow endeavour. If you lean on our columns it's meet you should know That you're sure to grow fatter than ever. Up north the playful alligator makes things a little lively when the residents of that extremely-hot portion`of:the Australian. continent go, iin" for, aquatic gymnastics. Some Bowen boys had a swimming-hole up the river, but they were often driven out of the wiater by a;very ungent?dmanly alligator who.came to sample them. At last they hit on a little racket to get even with him. They constructed a buoy, the exact size and shape of an every day sort of boy, filled it pretty full of nitro-glycerine, and pushed it out in the river with a long pole. Mr. Alligator came down on his daily sampling expedition, with his mouth wide open, like an overgrown rat-trap, and, without asking any question, he shut down on him like a bulldog on a shin of beef., He didn't want to take a sample, but he took the whole...

A Message from the Sea. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 25 April 1885
A Message from the Sea. One of our reporters,' whilst. out fishing in the Bay on. Sunday,; had. his attention attracted. by a flying-fish perching itself on the bow of his dingey. The animal appeared to be perfectly tame, and allowed itself to be caught, and, on being closely examined, a document, wrapped in an Age article to keep it dry, disclosed itself. We present the con tents of this strangely-received despatch, and our readers will no doubt peruse with in terest this message from the sea. We intended to have exhibited the finny-winged messenger at our office,.but the tired traveller was in cautiously put to sleep on a plate with some mullet that had been bought for our'morn ing's meal; the company was too; high for him, and by the morning the beautiful denizen of the trackless ocean had gone still higher. 'ON THE WAY TO THE SOUDAN. (BY "A TRAyELLING CORRESPONDENT.") o Having been brooding over affairs in the Soudan: for some: time, I determined to act independrcnt of New South...

How Binks Bested the Barber. A FACT. E?Everybody in Laverick Wells' Spa knew little?Mr. Bousfield the barber. It wasn't so -much in the matter of cutting of hair, cut ting of wigs, and so forth that Mr. Bousfield shone pre-eminently forth. For these pur poses the populace of Laverick Wells: be stowed their allegiance rather on Mr. Cost, .of the Grand Parade, a hair-dresser of the highest order, but "little Bousfield" looked beyond " easy shaving" for the means of his daily bread. In short, if any enterpris -lug water drinker wanted to take the odds to. a soverign about his fancy for some horse' race, Mr.. Bousfield was known to be the man:tb whom: it'would be exp)dient ito go in order to carry out the transaction. The "bookies'' that paid in Laverick -Wells, might have been counted on the fiigers. 'True, there was Mr. Pipkin, Mr. Moss, and another or two who " cold get it on' for you, but in reality there was no com petition, and-little. Bousfield's connection praactiaiallyhamounted...

All we know about it. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 25 April 1885
All we know about it. A correspondent has been continually plaguing us as to the prices of wild beasts. We insert all the information we have been able to obtain : Lions and tigers are worth about £80,. leopards £20, jaguars £40, spotted tigers £250, wolves £8, black bears £12, white bears £25. An African elephant costs £60, a rhinocerous varies from £400 to £800. After hunting up the above informa. tion we informed our fighting:editor that, in consequence-of the depression in the-:wild beast market, we ihad serious ,thoughts bf getting ridiof him. We explained that we thought it iwould b much cheaper for us to have a good sound £8 ,wolf on the premises, than an expensive luxury like .a fighting editor. The wortly man was very:imuch. cut up at the suggestion, and reminded us in pathetic tones of the many fierde and vic torious struggles he had had on our behalf. We were, however, deaf to his entreaties until he artfully mentioned that it was just possible an £8 wolf inight not be su...

A Plucky Photographer. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 25 April 1885
A Plucky. Photographer. A certain frontier town in one of the United States has been pestered for some time by one of those swaggering bullies who delight in terrifying women .and children, and inoffensive citizens. This desperado boasted that he c:ould " clean out" the whole town of single-handed. He was ac customed to'enter the stores, demand what ever caught his fancy, and threaten to shoot the proprietor if the article was not forth coming at once, emphasising his threat by flourishing a horse-pistol. One day this " flower of the plains," as he.facetiously called' himseIfý-sa~iiit~eed into a photogra pher's studio. The artist, a young man from New York, had been in the town but a very short time. ` Well, young 'un," said the bully, as he dropped carelessly into a chair, " what do you charge for pictures ?"

Fire. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 25 April 1885
Fire. There is something in the souind of a fire bell that is more destructive'to 'the reasoning powers of man than a double-back-action toothache or an aggravated case of jim-jams. A man may be talking to you as calmly and composedly as if he knew there was no here after, and the moment the rude clangor salutes his sensitive ear-presto ! away he goes! He rushes away, frantically asking, " Where's the fire?" untilhe reaches the place where confusion is ", boss." There.he is in his element. Doors and windows.are no obstacles to his entranice in the.house,;foprhe.; kicks them in or helps some other excited individual to do the same. Then notice, if you please, the tender care with which he deposits a feather bed on the ground, and the graceful abandon he exhibits in tossing a lamp out of the window. See him take' a` shower-bath without a tremor, or. climb a ladder with monkey.like celerity..? Hehas a reckless disregard for his person; just so he puts thle fire out; and by the time it ...
SWINE FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 25 April 1885
iW11NkE FARHMING. We are more and more impressed with the value of hogs.on the farm. Many farmers make their cows the main feature; the buildings aro, constructed with reference to their management, and the rotation of crops is fixed to promote the same end. ,We also have farms devoted to horse. breeding, and whole sections of country where sheep-breeding is the leading inadstry.. To make these different branches of husbaiAi' a speciality is the right course to success. In the great corn disticts of the West,h4Iogs are raised in large numbers, but we are tf6red ,o say, from observation, that it is generall%, c.rn more than care which gives the business its degree of su-. cess. Often enough corn is wasted, if not f'd with care, to fatten the entire stock. The West rn hog does not fill the entire place for which lie wa- designed. He is simply a condens.d corn crib, with a great many rat hlles This business basis may possibly answer where corn is cheap and land requires no fertilizer, ...
