The Reformer. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 29 October 1887
The' Ref'oimer. Beforo the monstrous wrong he sets him down One man against a stone-walled city of sin. For centuries those walls have been a-build ing; Smooth porphyry, they slope and coldly glass The flying storm and wheeling sun. No chink, No crevice lets the thinnest arrow in. JIo lights alone, and from the cloudy ram. parts A thousand evil faces gibe and cheer him. Lot hlin lie down and dieo: what is the right, And wherei is justice in a world like this ? Ilut by and by, earth shakes herself, im. patient; And down; in ona great roar of ruin, crash Watch-tower, and citadel, anti battlements. When the red dust has cleared, the lonely soldier Stands with strange thoughts beneath the ldeadly stav,.
Poetry. Sunrise. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 29 October 1887
Sipoet,4i Swee 2ise. Up rose the sun upon a still grey morn, And down the dim lands rolled His serried rays upon the ripe'ning corn Red gold upon the gold. Bright-faced was he, as victor in the breach Of a proud city won, Who waves, head-high, above the foeman's reach, A golden gongalon. The pale moon, looking at that wondrous light, As on the light of grace, A dying saint goes down into the night With glory on her face. So when the last sad hour has come for me, Ere the dim path be trod, May I, whileldarkness gathers round me, see The glory of my God.. -- ictor . Daley.

Traveller. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 29 October 1887
' ravelley 'Mysterious Persian Wells -In the neighborhood of Shiraz, upon: a hill the traveller comes upon some wells- which would seem to date back to the Great King, for the labor involved in their'construction certainly points to a dynasty more nsgniF cent in its undertakings for the royal eae sure than the Parthian, Sassanlan ort Arab. Near the top of the precipitous. there yawns an opening, perfectly lc angular; abouteight yards by six, which' is the mouth of a well going straight down into the'bowels of the mountain. The shaft is cut in the live rock,-the sides are as per pendicular as the plumb line can make them, and the depth something under fourhundred feet, the bottom at present being dry. With in fifty yards on the same hill are two other smaller wells; and local tradition as sorts that there is underground communica tion between the three. This theory finds support in the fact that when a pistol is fired at the mouth of one of these wells to disturb-the pigeons who floc...

Ladies' Column. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 29 October 1887
Maoeq, Col rIiU111 The Fashions.-" Godey's Lady's Book" gives a description of the latest Paris novelty -jersey costumes: Nothing can be more elegant than a toilet of maroon jersey,.silk over a skirt of the samepmaterial, the tint gray opening over a narrow vest. It has but one fault, and that we all deplore, namely, its cost, which is excessive, for a jersey silk is is expensive as it is beautiful. Possibly imitatibn:in fine jersey cloth will counteract this drawback and produce an equally good effect. We shall also have this summer lhiti ii -silk -jisey.

On this oc casion a fresh-water fish was brought up, ::-garnished with varionis-sauces, and the am bassador, who know nothing of the customs of the country, unfortunately turned the fish 'over,;'pon which the courtiers, filled with indignation, arose, and, addressing the emperor, said- : "Do not suffer yourself, oh, emperor I to be treated with disrespect that was never shown to any of yogr ancestors. Command § thatthis'stranger, who has broken your laws in your very presence, be instantly put to death." d' The emperor answered, turning to Halton, and sighing,- "I cannot r...
Sketcher. A ROGUE DETECTED. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 29 October 1887
%het c-I eIJ%' ý' A ROGUTE DETECTED. After a grand dinner in Aleppo once, given by the English consul, some of the silver ware used at theft/ie mysteriously dis appeared. Great consternation pievailed, -especially amongst the servaists; - for they well knew that suspicion -idwod rest upon them. Even the policemen-or cavasses, as they are termed in Turkey-who were in the house during the feast, did not escape sus picion. After mature reflection upon the mishap, the consul called the most intelli gent of the cavasses. He questioned him. The cavass insisted that he did not steal the silver, and that he did not know who did. But the consul was a very-good detective, and shrewd in his knowledge of men and things. He was'also a cool-tempered man. He said to the cavas., ".There is no use to swear. I am not going to change my opinion. I have good reasons to suspect you to be the thief, and I mean that you shall bring my silver to me within twenty-four hours, else you will be put in the, han...
