AN INNOCENT ELOPEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 30 June 1888

AN INNOCENT ELOPE MENT. Br M. E. BHoLsas A winter gloaming, but soft and grey. A stretch of eastern country open and wooded, high and low, level and broken, beautiful in summer, but just now deeply hidden beneath a mantle of snow, and above it htanging a dome sneowladen. A faint western wind stirring the orehard's great desolate heart, and filling its aisletes with uncanny whispers. From an invisible somewhere gaunt shadows stealing forth and reaching out their sold, hare arms to darkly embrae a rambling, old-fashioned homestead mansion. Ever unwinding "and gaining volume as they approaenned, those spectral shades ellently stalked into a quaitt, low.celled apartment before whose open chasm of a fireplace stood a young girl. She was in' appearance almost a ohild, slim as a youthful tamarack, and graceful, with s face sweet, round. fresh, daintily tinted, but hardly up to the classical ideal of beauty. 'A lae tenderly, temptingly, daringly lovable, yet wondrous aed, withal, in its pre...

A NORTHERN POLITICIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 30 June 1888

A MOBTHBRN POLITICIAN. Next to Victoria lheje is no colony in the Auntralasian group which is charaoterised by ouch "gobeahdness" as Queensland. It may be said that this is in a large measure due to %be fact that its natural resourcee are great, the territory is vast, and there is consequently every encouragement for speculation. That is, of course. true, but it should be rememberedt that the vats resources of the northern coleny would not have been so rapidly developed had it not been for the enterprise of ite colonista. Wise legislation bha much, very much, to do with the progresa of any colony, particularly ia its early cayr, when its population is ma*U. and its revenue correspondingly limited. Good legislation i vrolves the necessity for having good legislators--men po-saesed-ol high in tellectual capacity, a genius for statemanshbip, a fervid patrintism, end a knowledge of every. thing that is the newest and the best. With oat such men no colony would mike progres. Happily in t...

THE YOUNG FOLKS. T;TEBBIBLE FIGHT BETWEEN AN ~ APE AND A LION. W. P. POND. ':,'::T In the glocmy receeses of the primeval foreste still to be found in Central Africa there is a vast unexplored field still stretch ing forth its unmeasured space to the bouter and the naturalist. Io these who know the faco of nature as it is before the corrosive hand of clvilieation sweeps across it, there is little grounnd for wonder that the two are almosee always in a greater or lesser degree united. Oecasionally, then, even the most ardent hunter will lose the blood instinct that animates him, and, lowering his rifle, perhaps in amoment ofgreat peresnal danger, will forget his long and laboriously sought quarry to watch some new trait or fresh instinct in the animal that, unconscious of his presence, gambols before him. It is of gmch an episode that I now write. My guide and I had been for two days after game with but little success, until shortly after ncon on the second day we struck what appeare...
