Miscellancous. Before Sailing. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Recorder — 8 June 1887

fllMsceUancous. * Before Sailing. Lean closer, darling, let thy tendor heart Bent against mine that aches with henvy woe ; Drop thy quick woman's' tears to'soothe thy smart, Ah, mo I that I could caso my sorrow so I But men muat work, sweetheart, and womon weep, So says the song, so'runs tho world's be hest ; Yet timo will paas nnd tender comfort creep, With hope in company, unto thy breast, Now, ere we part, while yet on lip nnd cheek Oloso kisses linger, clinging, passionate, Thoro is a farewell word lovo fain would Bpeak, A tender thought lovo labors to tran slate In earnest words, whose memory through thy years Shall claim thy soul nnd dry thy dropping tears. If in thy garden whero the roses blow, Or by the sholtqr of thy evening fire, In any Winter gloom or Summer glow, Thy soul float seaward with a fond desire (Fonder nnd stronger than thy tonder nso) Think thou : ' One longs for mo across the foam ;' And If, sweet fnlling liko tbe evening dowa, A 6pecinl peace enfolds thy hea...

Ladies' Column. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Recorder — 8 June 1887

fta&ies' Column* The Baby's Appetite.— a lady has writ ten nn articlc for tho papers entitled, 'Whon Children Should bo wntchcd.' She fails, however, to state that it is a good timo to watch them when tho pantry door ia open nnd the preserves are within reach. Another time when watching saves doctor's bills and funeral expenses is, when n chcrub firat com mences to crawl abont tbe floor, and mani fests a desire to put everything In its mouth it can place its hands on. At tills ago a baby is a good deal like a goat, and will eat old paper, rags, socks, gloves, kindling-wood and lumps of coal, with apparent relish. The fact of the matter is, a baby during what might bo termed tho ' tasting period,' would, if it possessed a mouth and nbdomen of suffi cient capacity, swallow a lynno, a bath-tub, or any other article of hoilsohold furnituro that is moveable. A person who is acquainted with tho habits of a baby, is aware of tho fact that the mother's greatest care iB whon tbo chil...

The Inner Man. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Recorder — 8 June 1887

Gbe 3nner fiDan, Dining with tho Sultan of Morocco is more of au honor than a pleasure, according to tho ncconnt of a recent visitor connected with tho French Embassy. The Sultan is even more of a spiritual than a temporal monarch, a sort of crowned saint, cx officio, and therefore it is beneath his aacrcd dignity to dine in person with his guests, and he deputes a representative from his suite. Tho palace also is too sacred a shrine to bo the scene of such festivity, and the dinner iu usually served in the garden of the summer palace, outside the town of Fez. When the narrator dined in this second-hand way with his sacred majesty the weather was hot, and the dinner was served in the town-palaeo garden, beneath orango, lemon, nnd pome granate trees, where tho buttercups, corn flowers, and daisies grew bo tall that they mingled with the boughs, and tho guests hnd hard work to fight their way on horseback to tbe table, or rather tray.
