Let Us Be Genteel. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 12 February 1887
S :Let Us-Be°Genteel. -- Genteel ;is a word that has gone out of fashion;-T It answered :.ceirtain requirinieint and expressed a certain idea well enough till it became demoralised. Such, wefear,-will be :the fate. of the' expression "lady." Every girl is a: lady. .now-a.days. Her. tongue may be guiltless of grammar, and her teeth innocent of the tooth-brush, but. sheinsistson being called ayounglady, all the same. "My darter 'as jist gone down the street with another young lady" was a ,phrase we heard in passing through a back, lane the other day,y. We looked at the, "darter." The hells.of her shoes wouldn't' have covered a sixpence, and they were about the height of a pepper-castor. Her stockings were not snow white. The brevity of her dress permitted this unpleasant fact to be noticed. Her hat was worn well back on the side of her head, and she was fringed on the forehead like a Shetland pony. All these things might have been over-looked as the results of an eccentric education a...
THE SOLEMN HALF-HOUR. THE DRINK FIEND AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 12 February 1887
THE SOLEMN HALF-HOUR. Br SILAS SNELL. THE DRINK FIEND AGAIN. ' Hehada sweet poetic name, with a cadence like the refrain of distant bag-pipes stealing through the gathering gloom. Ling Fish was that name. He was a savory Mongolian, with a face like a sun-burnt wax doll, or a penny mask that has met with an accident. He hawked diseased, moon-struck vegetables and fish that had run to seed round a southern suburb, in an old-fashioned, crip pled shay, drawn by asway-backed, one-eyed screw, troubled with glanders, girth-gall, and pleurisy; a middle-aged equine that pulled a'tram.car about Thebes in the days of its youth. Ling:Fish, Esq., was at a cottage door vending his wares, and his jaunting car and blue-blooded charger stood "forninst" a neighboring hotel. A barrel, with its head stove in, half full of stale ale,' stood by the kerb.' Presently, the old prad was observed to' drag his weary length up to that cask, and take a sniff at its contents. The smell livened him up, and infused...
For the Ladies [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 12 February 1887
Full vests are quite on the wane, and the plain flat waistcoat front is much more worn. The wadding, which is so often useful for very slight figures, is now carried all round the arm-hole and put at the back as well. One of the prettiest style of decorating churches and houses for weddings, is to.employ only chrysanthemums of all colors, the white ones being used to compose a large and grace fully-shaped bell, beneath which the bride and bridegroom stand during the ceremony. Poplin continues to be greatly used, and the Queen, who has given a considerable order for Windsor Castle, has also chosen a child's frock made of that material in pale pink and beauti fully embroidered. The latest style of muffs are made very long, with pockets on the outside, and supplemented by chenille fringe, or any sort of ornament that will droop well. Those worn at weddings are composed of very light silk or muslin, and covered with real flowers. On dit that many ladies in London travel third-class, as ...

DRYSDALE RACES. &nbsp; &nbsp; The annual race gathering of the Drysdale Club took place on Tuesday afternoon on the course, a very short distance from the railway station.

Wit and Humor [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 19 February 1887
If you would manage a woman or a horse .; you must first learn to manage your temper. A city-editor was recently presented with a pocket-book and a dog by his friends. He knew what to do with the dog. A magistrate has decided that a man is not iustififd ikn kj_ aady asa-y ?s -in other words;W' re. s , ing.

For a Young Lady in the Ballet. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 19 February 1887
For a Young Lady in the Ballet: Oh ! don't look so shock'd, I beg, , Thofugh I do display some leg, Nor;-, because I'm in the ballet, think me bad; Bless your far to bashful eyes, So wide open'd with surprise, I am not all powder, viciousness, and pad. 'Tis quite true I dye my hair, Make my dark complexion fair, And in other ways disguise myself; what then? , It is running in my head, That 'tis not to win their bread, Like devices are resorted to by men. Though you see me dress'd in tights, And believe my days and nights, . Are all given up to idleness and shame, Are you very sure you know? * And if not, would it not show More respect for truth if you reserv'd your blame?- ? - There are black sheep everywhere, So, why should you at me stare,: Woman's 'acts and not their callings, make their sin; Poverty makes sins abound: , F ri . rich vice was never found, An excuse so just. Now, let the play begin. ,

Scientific Notes [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 19 February 1887
inn ýa# The objection to the incandescent light in mines; that it gave no indication of fire damp, has been removed by placing two together-one a colored and the other a clear light. A mercury contact, subject to the pressure from diffusion in an unglazed porce lain pot, allows the clear light to burn in a good atmosphere but lights the colored one in firedamp. Prof. Leyden, President of the Berlin So ciety of Medicine, says no experienced physi cian will disregard the influence of fashion on medicine. Fashion constitues a remedial agent which the physician has in some degree to acknowledge. Patients have more con fidence in remedies which are the fashion of the day, and more willingly submit to .de-. privations enforced by a treatment if this happens to be the fashion. The results of the latest work by the mathematicians on the solar parallax fixes its value at 8.794 seconds. This corresponds to a distance of. 23,455 times the earth's equatorial radius. Taking Clark's value of' the...
It Made Him Mad. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 19 February 1887
It Made Him Mad. These divorce cases play the very ace with jealous husbands. The other day young Othello returned unexpectedly, and hearing his wife's voice in the bedroom, he crept up stairs on tip-toe. " Tom, you are a perfect darling," warbled his wife. " Ido love you, you dear old fellow, and your whiskers are so handsome ! Kiss ! Kiss ! Kiss ! !" With frenzy in his eye, madness in his brain, and hatred in his heart, he burst into the room, and found his wife in the armchair with-the tom-cat. We need not say that meant a new summer bonnet.
