EAGLE CAUGHT IN A STEELTRAP. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 31 May 1884
EAGLE CAUGHT IN A STEELTRAP. A remarkable inicident occurred on Cani? Creek, Boone County, U.S., One Mr: W. H. Toler was trapping foxes ; arid going to his traps in the morning he found that they were both gone. On searching for them, he found one, with a fox in it, not far from the place where ihe had set them. After having secured the fox, he renewed his search for the other trap; but in 'vain. He went down to the house, after his dogs, and went back hoping to find it, but he was unsuccessful. On returning home, lamenting his lost trap, a. strange scene presented itself to his view. A gray eagle was seen flying uncommonly low with.his trap to one of its feet. Lighting on the ground some two or three hundred yards below the house, a Mir. B. F. Dickens got a gun and went down, and managed, after a hard-fought battle, to break one of the eagle's wings and capture it. It was six feet nine inches from the point of one wing to the other, being one of the largest ever seen in that part o...
EXTRAORDINARY WHIST HANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 31 May 1884
EXTRAORDINARY WHIST HANDS. The. facts related by Cuthbert Bede in Notes and Queries will be read with astonish ment by whist players, and would indeed, were it' not so attested, be regarded as abso. lutely incredible, "The other evening while [Iwas playing .whist, and was the dealer, I turned up hearts. E My hand consisted of seven hearts, and six diamonds. My partner held seven diamonds and'six hearts. The spades and clubs were similarly divided among our' ,opponents. Consequently, they had all black cards, and we held the red. Several old. whist players were present, and as 'not one of, the company had ever seen or heard of a similar circumstance, it was adjudged worthy to.be made a note of." It is an extremely, rare event for the 13 trumps to lie in the hands of two partners-so rare, indeed, that many men who have played whist all their lives have never seen such a thing. Arith meticians could, no doubt, tells us how, many tens of figures would be required'to represent the 'proba...

I think of her with fondest recollection, Though since that time the years, have onward rold; Why didn't I--6h, it wasn't that affection This darling wasn't more than three years oled.

WHAT A WOMAN'S LOVE WILL DO. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 31 May 1884
WHAT A WOMAN'S LOVE ,WILL DO. BY EM QUAD. They lived in a snug little ivy-grown cot tage close to the beach, where the rustle of the leaves and the sighing of the waves lulled them into forgetfulness of the past and sweet unconscious disregard of what was to come in the future. When Bertie Elwood married pretty, plump little Ella Tristram a year ago, he ade good-bye to the busy cold world, and, save when his office called him from her side, he thrust all earthly cares from him and lived only in the sweet blissful present. All was well until Sybil came to stay with them. Ella at first had a slight misgiving within her bosom, for Sybil, it was whispered, was an old " flame," as they called it, of Bertie's, and, if report ran truly, she held some influ ence over him still. Again, when Sybil came the grandeur of hervoluptuous presence she felt quite eclipsed her own fair charms, and she sighed within herself a little weary .sigh which found an acho in her heart. And as day after day pas...

"I'll never, marry, Miss Croker,, or any one else, merely at the bidding of a 'selfish, inconsiderate, unreasonable old man, who had his own way all his life, and fancies he's going to have it after he's dead," Jeff Morrison cried, impatiently, as he walked up and down the room with long strides. " Why, Judson, its monstrous-an outrage on a man of sense and honor." "No fellow can reasonably expect to become the happy possessor of fifteen hundred a year without some one feeling outraged," Harry Judson replied, laying down a letter he had been carefully read ing.

NYUM NYUM! [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 31 May 1884
NYUM NYUM I The Kilmore Free Press has three-quarters of a column on the danger of kissing. We haven't the honor of the editor's acquaint ance, but if the way this important subject is treated represents his feelings in the matter, we should really advise our lady friends up there to give him as wide abirth as possible. The gloating way in which it dwells on past osculations proves .quite satisfactorily to our minds that the Kiimor~e` Eves would not want the addition' of an apple in order to tempt him from the paths of virtue. This is the way it starts :- . "'Danger in the kiss. M. Pasteur, of germ-theory fame, has found that there are parasites, in the moisture of the mouth, which render it extremely dangerous to kiss a person when fasting. Food renders them innbonous.' This is the paragraph upon which' our eyes are glued, and as we think of the terrible risks we have unwittingly run in our variegated career, we grow cold all over, and fancy there is a creeping in our mouth.

His widow died two years ago,.but not until she had: bought a. Bona parte, in the shape of a penniless Liedtenant of that name and family, as :a husband for her pretty daughter. The price paid for this, relative of the great Napolean was i,000,000dol.

"Why, here's an advertisement that says, ' No reasonable offer refused.' " " Whit's" so odd about that?" "Nothing, nothing," shei replied, trying to blush," only those are my sen timents."
