Noah's Ark. Shem, Ham and `Japhet, Noah's. sons, one night; just after dark, Persuaded their old father that t'were well to build an ark, For they had heard 'twas going to rain, and that it might be found .. .. That they and all the other beasts and people might be drowned. So off they went and built the ark, and found', : her water-tight, And when the rain came down they jumped on board herin a fright; They took their children all on board, the . animals also, ' And then the cocks began to bark, the dogs' began'to crow., The lions all began to chirp, the hens began t I roar, And such a mixing up of sounds was. nevr together, " l ' '' And put their umbrellas up; it was: chi dreadful weather. The snakes and geese began to bray, the don-;. keys took to hissing; - The elephants and pigs retired to do -a little' kissing; The kangaroos and magpies then began to snarl and bite; ' The tigers and opossums played at Bo-peep all /. that night.

A Little Hint. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 19 February 1887
A Little Hint. The following is not funny, only it's a fact, and as such we present it. as a hint to our impecunious readers. Anindividual residing in a southern suburb, which shall be name less, was so pestered by his creditors that he did not know -what to do,. so he fixed Up. a flagstaff in his garden;-and now when anyone says, ".Not at home ?. Well,.then, I'll wait till he does come,".the wife hoists a red flag to the top of. the pole, and when Hardup sees that as he is returning home, he makes for the nearest pub., and waits until the coast is clear, when . the danger signal is lowered again. Poor men and dogs get very little now-a-days unless they either earn it or beg for it.

Not as Bad as He Might Be. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 19 February 1887
Not as Bad as He -Might Be. There once lived up-country a peculiar and original old gentleman named Adams, who was known to all the neighborhood for miles around by his harmless and amusing eccentricities. A lawyer named Somerby, riding through .the district one summer morning, discovered Mr. Adams making his way afield with the necessary haying tools a jug and a scythe-.and stopped to have a talk with him. The soil in that part of the country is very thin and- sandy, and -the hay crop very light, and the good-humored lawyer took oc casion to remark upon the fact, and to.pity the farmers who were obliged to wring a scanty living from such barren acres. The old gentleman heard him patiently for a time, but at length he broke out : "Look here, squire, you're wasting your sympathy. I ain't,so poor as you think I am. I don't own this farm."

Tillingbury ilaughed .and waited. for the speaker "I'm bound for nowherein particu- k1 lar," he said. " I was only thinking." " Thinking, were you? I never knew your n thoughts to race so before." : "I never heard before that I. was to be heir tE to half a million." Lightfield uttered an exclamation. "You don't mean that the old fellow has done it?" " No, not done it, you know. He hasn't. keeled overyet, and I don't wish him harm, of course. I can't be in a hurry decently, but he's going to do it. He has nearer relatives, - but he is outrageous against these; -says that v they have'treated him abominably, and that, o if I am only second cousin, I shall rake in the whole pile some day if I behave well." t "It's doubtful if you do,"retorted Light- tl field, with a laugh. t Tillingbury asked ...
AN INTERESTING WIDOW. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 19 February 1887
AN INTERESTING WIDOW. On the evening 6o the 5th of March, 1803, a singular event o~curred in the house of the widow of Privy-Councillor TJrsinus, in Berlin. As the wilow, a rich, handsome; and accomplished lady, and a leader of society, was seated it cards with a number of guests, a trembling servant came to tell her that the hall was full of policemen, and that they wanted her. She, did not appear at all surprised, begged her friends to con tinue the game, and, smiling, promised to re turn in a moment. :But she never did for thirty years. She was immediately taken into custody on a charge of attempted mur. der. The person she was accused of poisoning was a confidential servant, called Benjamin Kleim. 'He being indisposed, she gave him a basin of broth, and shortly after physic inside some raisins, both of which he fancied made. him 'worse. She then offered him some rice, which he refused, and on his doing so he was much surprised to see here put it carefully away where no one else ...

SATURDAY, FEB. 19th 1887 IR there is one thing more than another which is "urgently re quired on" Queenscliff, it .is a large and commodious rotunda in the recreation reserve. Pro moters of. excursions have al ways to consider the accommio dation available in,' case the weather should turn .out' un propitious.. The cost of the erection of a rotunda- would not be niuch, .and if, on special occasions, a light charge was made for its use, the expendi ture would be more :than re paid.

Two of a Trade Old Nick is grimed and black as ink,. And so is a Printer's Devil. In face he's like the missing link, And so is a Printer's Devil. Nick always worries those who're hipt, And so does a Printer's Devil. Nick wants souls, but 'tis manuscript That fetches the Printer's Devil. Old Nick's pleased if you sign your name, And so is a Piinter's Devil. And their reasons are inuch the same, Old Nick and'the Printer's Devil. Old Nick's the lord of those who write, And so is the Printer's Devil. He'never leaves thenm day or night, No more does the Printer's Devil. Old Nick's been curs'd up hill, down dell, And so has the Printer's Devil. I wish both were in the depth of-ak well, Both Nick and the Printer's Devil.

Sensational Items. "NOSE." On Guy Fawkes Day, 1802, a lavender warehouse keeper, named Steele, of Cather ine street, Strand, started for his plantation grounds at Bedfont; but, not returning to town according to custom, his friends, be coming anxious, set a search on foot, and he was found buried under some bushes on Hounslow Heath. His head was horribly mutilated, his hat and boots missing, and-his pockets cut off. Several persons were arrested and dis. charged, and not until four years later did the truth come to light. A man, then in the Hulks, at Portsmouth, offered to turn King's evidence. Examined at Worship street, he deposed as follows :-" I have known Hag gerty eight or nine years, and Holloway six or seven. We were accustomed to meet at the 'Turk's Head' and 'Black Horse' pub lichouses in Dyot street. '' Holloway, just before the murder, called me out of the ' Turk's Head' and asked me if I had any objection to be in a good thing. I replied I had not. He said it was a 'No ...
