A STOLEN BANK-NOTE. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 11 January 1886
A STOLEN BAN"K-NOTE. Some years ago I was a resident in Neow York. One day a gentleman, who an nounced himself as the British consul at that port, entered my father's office, saying that he wished to speak with Mr.. i-. " That is my name," I replied. "Pardon me," said the consul; "but I was under the impression that Mr. M--, 'whom I am desirous of seeing, was an older man than you are." ." Ah, it is my father, then, whom you want. Unfortunately, ho is, and has been, for some days past confined to the house by indisposition. Can you communicate to me the nature of your business, and it may be in my power to attend to it, in his absence P"? S"I am obliged to you," said the consul. "Well," hlie added, after slight hesitation, "I should like to speak with you in private for a few minutes, if convenient.". " Certainly; " and having shown the :old: gentleman into an inner room, I re'quested him to be seated, and waited for him to broach the matter concerning which he had sought the interv...
A PRETTY STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 11 January 1886
A PRETTY STORY. A new Uhland anecdote is sure of a wide welcome. Al?tholgh the poet delighted to teno his subjects from the knightly and romntie Middle Ages, when feudalism was everywhere in force, he was essentially a poet of the people. The Prussian King, William IV., offered him the Order your Ic iferile, with flattering expressions. of the Royal regard.. Uhland, however, declined to accept it. While he was explaining to his wife theo' reason which moved him 'to i'cuse the distinction, there was a kncck at the door. 'A work ing-clas: girl from the neighbourmhood. entered, and prerenting Uhland with a bunch of ioleoi, s?id, " This is an offering from mty mother." "Your mother, child!" replied the peat; "I thought she died last autumn." "'That is true, Herr Uhland," said the girl, "and I begged you at the time to al:e a little verse for hiergrave, and you sent me a beautiful poem. These are the first iolets which have bloomed on mother's . rave; I have plucked them, end I like to t...

AN ACTOR'S STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 11 January 1886
AN ACTOR'S'STORY. During the run of a pantomime there was engaged at 'a small, theatre in a a small town in the north, a very old harlequin. He had been in the harlequin business more years than I can remember. I can recollect his name appearing on the London bills a few years ago, but somehow younger and more agile men have ousted him out of his metropolitan position, and recently he has been compelled to waste his sweetness on thd (comparatively) desert air of the provinces. What leaps he could take in his young days, to, be sure ! I have seen him go throu!nh a win. dow as swiftly as an arrow flies from a bow. But lihe must'be 50 years old now, and anybody will tell you that at that age a man's jumping days are almost over. He had engaged to open last BoxingNight at the Theatre Royal, Ironborough, and Christmas Eve found him duly'at rehear sal. He was arranging the height of his jumps, when the proprietor came upon suddenly. "Now, look here, Mr.- " said the pro prietor, "our peopl...

AMUSEMENTS. CONCERT AT DOTANY. The usual Sunday afternoon concert at the Sir Joseph Banks' Pavilion and Plea sure Grounds, Botany, was largely at tended yesterday, the pleasant weather inducing a more than usually numerous crowd to visit the beautiful pleasure grounds. MBiss Lucy Fraser sang very effectively, "When all nature smuiles again," and Mr. A. Farley was encored for his renderingof"The Tar'sfareswell." Miss Millie Ierbert's clear voice was heard to great advantage in "In port," and for another nautical song; " Half-mast high," Mr. Matlock was loudly applauded. Other numbers were given by Bliss Amy Rowe, Messrs. Farley, Barrington, and Henrix, and the Neillson family. CHOWDER BAT SUNDAY CONCERTS. The carefully diawnn. programme of Sunday week, added to the beauty of the surroundings, had the effect, yesterday, of inducing a surprising large number of persons to visit Chowder Bay, to attend the second of the series of Sunday after noon concerts so successfully inaugurated by ...
FROGS IN ASTONISHING POSITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 11 January 1886
FROGS IN ASTONISHING POSITIONS. In the centre of rocks, generally sand stone, and in the heart of trees, they have frequently been discovered. Ambrose Part, chief surgeon to Henry III. of France, relates a fact of which he was an eye-witness. At his seat near the village of I?eudon he was overlooking a quarry man, whom he had employed to break some hard and large stones. In the middle of one they discovered a "huge toad," full of life, although there was no visible aperture by which it could get through. On May the 21st, 1703, a mason named George Wilson, who was engaged in building a stone wall, came across a toad, which, out of sheer wantonness, he immured in the wall. Sixteen years afterwards, in 1809, it was found still alive. At Windsor, in 1700, a live frog was dug up from a depth of Oft. below the surface. At Castleton in 1779 many frogs were found from Oft. to Oft. beolow the surface, apparently dead ; but when exposed to the air they soon showed signs of animation, and beca...

SYDNEY AND ITS SURROUNDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 11 January 1886
SYDNEY AND ITS SUR ROUNDINGS. Dr. Taylor, the well-known editor of Science Gossip, has the following interesting account of the surroundings of Sydney in Saturday's Argus. ft forms the 25th and last chapter of his " Notes of ia Naturalist in Australia." To visit Sydney an'd its enchanting suburbs witlout extending one's explora tions to the Blue Mlountains would be an unpardonable mistake. Numbers of people, both at home and in Australia, had im pressed upon me the ncesesity of spending a few days there; but the chief, nmy, with most folk, the only thing they talked about were the "zig-zag railways." The Blue lMountains appeared to them to have been wisely designed for a zig-zag railway to be carved on their flanlks, just an the local preacher spoke about the beneficent arrangement which brought the large rivers up to tihe large towns ! Before 1 visited the Blue Mountains, I had grown very indifferent about the zig zag, but I durst not own it, and I had hypocritically to pretend I w...
THE STORY OF A DUEL. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 11 January 1886
.THE STORY OF A DUEL. The French Life Guards (grades du corps) under the Restoration had got into bad odour like the Tenth, forty years since. A label was posted on their barracks: "Fabrique de plats argentes, qui no vout pas au feut ;" a singularly unjust sarc?sm, for no cause had better reason to boast of the bravery of its members. One of them, the Viscomte de S., was talking to a friend in the green-room of the opera on a ball night, when all of a sudden a stranger rushed upon him, and: without saying a word, gave hIm a box on: the ear. Whilst everyone was lost in astonish ment and terror at the. probable results, the aggrcssor (an American) cried ouit: "Oh,.dear ie, I have made a. mistake- accept my best apologies, sir." Apologies were onit of the question. The affront could only be expiated by b'oed.' A duel ensued the next morning, and the American' was wounded in the aim. - "MIy name," said he to the Vicomte who who had spared him, "is-.. I start:to morrow for Havre; but if ...
DISASTROUS BUSH FIRES IN VICTORIA. MELBOURNE, SATURDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 11 January 1886
DISASTROUS BUSH FIRES IN VICTORIA. (FROM out OWN CoRRESPONDENT.) MELBOURNE, SATunRDAY. Most disastrous accounts have been re ceived of terrible bush fires in Heytesbury Forest. From Frincetown to Scott's Creek all is burnt, ten families being rendered homeless. One poor woman with six children had a miraculous escape. One little girl had the sole burned off one foot, the skin looking like burnt leather. Two others were badly burned. In all direc tions the settleos were compelled to fly for their lives, the flames scarcely giving them time to get away. Wherever water was at hand, men, women and children were huddled together in waterbolcs, in some cases up to their chins. The damage done is very great. The destruction occasioned by the recent bush fires on the Otway Ranges is very great. Cattle have been burned while huddled together in the paidocks, and numerous settlers have been ren dered homeless, nanrowly ewcaping with their lives. An immense quan tity of blackwood timber has be...
