Little Tommy. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 12 February 1887
Little Tommy. SLittle Tommy has a very perverse disposi tion-a fact which the. doctor,, who was called to prescribea course of treatment for .him recently, seems to have taken fully into account. The doctor told Tommy what to do in order to get well, and when he called two days after, he found the boy plainly very much better. " Will, how are you, Tommy ?" the doctor asked. " Oh, I'm cured now," said Tommy with a grin. "That's very good, I'm sure." "Yes, but I didn't do a single one of the things you told me to, doctor. I-- - -~ "Of course you didn't! I knew you wouldn't, and that's the reason I told you to do them," said the doctor. "I get up regularly at 5 o'clock now to do 'my practicing before school time," said Tommy, who is learning the violin. S"Ah, indeed? Well, I suppose getting up at 5 o'clock now means that you really got up at that hour this morning, doesn't it " "N-no, not exactly," said Tommy; "you see, I'm going to begin it to-morrow morn ing!"
The Woman and the Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 12 February 1887
The Woman and the Letter. She took the letter in her hand; The envelope she keenly scanned ; The address several times she read. "I wonder who it's from," she said ; " I know the writing very well, But whose it is I cannot tell." With curiosity she burned And straightway to the postmark turned. " The postmark I that will end the doubt." 'Twas blurred; she could not make it out. A dark cloud o'er her visage stole, And keenest anguish wrung her soul, The address she again perused; " Who can have written it ?" she mused. She could not with the problem cope. And so she broke the envelope Her last resource, she had no better And then she knew who wrote the letter.
The Secret of Sophia. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 12 February 1887
The Secret of Sophia. `Mr. Percival Thompson, of Albinio Villa, St. _John' Wood, was born to be a speculator; and that is-different from being 'a born gambler, although it is sometimes difficult to dcrimi n?ate between the two. He had accumulated a very sufficient fortune by industry and good luck; he did not want for anything; perhaps it was becauise his ineome was more than he could spend that he took the first fatal impulse into speculation. And yet Mr. Thompson was married. What I you say, is that possible, a wife, and at a loss how to spend his money i You are writing of ancientdays and people with whom we have no concern. By no means: I assure you thiat my story is of the present day; and yet it it equally certain that Mr. Thomp son had a dareful wife. But then it must be confessed that she was not in her first youth. She was five-and-thirty, ansd her husband some five years older ; they had no children, and a very small circle of acquaintance; they never gave dinner parties, ...
Worth Knowing. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 12 February 1887
Worth Knowing. The world is full of people who are con tinually borrowin'gknives from their friends for the purpose of .putting tobacco, and never returning them. They don't do this inten tionally, but the tesult is the same to their friends. You lend one of these absent minded gentry your knife, and while he is using it he entertains you with a flow of anecdote, in the midst of which he pensively pockets the knife,. and then, grasping your and in a warm-hearted squeeze, hurries off to catch the train. Perhaps you don't meet him again for a month, and by that time you have bought another knife, which he carries off gaily in thl same manner if you don't watch him. A man who had evidently gives his atte won to the problem of how not t6! be des ?ed in this iway and still sot be disobliging, Was standing at the corner of our principal street a few days ago, when a friend of this kind came up to him. After a word or two the friend asked for the loan of a knife. . The other handed him one...
A Meteoric Discovery. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 12 February 1887
A Meteorie Discovery. When a man's system is soaked full of science he isn't fit for much of anything else. If his taste runs to bugology he. will neglect his family to associate with long-legged grass hoppers, and squander valuable time cultivat ing the acquaintance of worms whose early education has been neglected. If he likes geology he will while away his life in a vain endeavor to find to what a rock belongs that was petrified last year. I don't know how I came to be a scientist, but some of my friends, for whose intelli gence I have the highest respect, say it is because I haven't any better sense. Be that as it may, I have fallen into the habit of watching the stars. It is not a very bad habit, and, if not indulged in to an excess, is not likely to hurt me. Whilethe renowneq astronomer, Mr. llery, has bee"n.actively en ged in the'comnet buaF ness, I turned my attention to meteors and falling stars when I first made the acquaintance of the coy and uncertain roller skates. Sinc...

Save the Children. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 12 February 1887
Save the Childre;. A well-known medical man has recently drawn attention to the fact that, during .the excessively hot weather'we have lately been enduring, the mortality amongst our infants, through' teething and its incidental ailments, has been alarmingly extensive. He suggests that in cases where the little sufferer is forced during its, illness to remain for a length: of.. tiine.in one room, that, the temperature of the apartment might be much lowered 'by. a. judicious distribution of wet towels around the little one's bedside.: By.: this inethod an.. appreciable coolness of atmosphere may be'.: maintained aiid the child's convalescence be reasonably' assured: ' To 'proerly battle with any" ailment' of our babies "the first .:requi' site is cool air. What we 'want'to accm-?' .plish is to, if possible, stave off to some e-ex terit the 'sicknesses attendant:.on our child" ren's growth. If we can .do. this much we may consider. that we have earned ..the. gratitude of those to whom...
The Terror Inside the Threshold. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 12 February 1887
The Terror Inside the. Threshold. Stolid, lethargic, mulish, and not to be taught by experience:; that is the character of the Anglo-Saxon. It has not been much modified in this clearer Australian climate. He profits by no warning, however terrible. It is only when the eihemy is at his gates that he begins to thilnk of preparing to meet him. Then, if the enemy retires to wait for a better opportunity the Anglo. Saxon, good easy man, goes comfortably to' sleep again, instead of setting his defences in ordei·to repel the next invasion. A good example of this may be .found' in the way in which we went to work, like Bedlamites, to drill soldiers, and build'.fortifications, when we thlought the -Rissians were coming, and then, .when we discovered the alarm was premature (only premature, not ground less, remember), disbanded: our. soldiers, dis continued our fort-building,;. reduced the garrisons of the forts already built to an average of three purblind gunners, and sank into slumber onc...
