Many a young man in the present day pre. fers to go into a sweepstake, to a rump steak going into him; and the former frequently sweeps away all chance of the latter.

"Check." [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 26 February 1887

S " Check." "How was it epossible, Madame," said the Marquis de M nthealeau, "that Elise ever could have married old General Dubois ?" "Elise was, as you know, born and bred in England, and did not come to Paris till she was twenty. She, however, spoke French fluently, and had cultivated the art of flirting, in which the Anglo-Saxon girls-ay, and mar ried women too-are so proficient. "After all her old French lovers had seceded from their allegiance to her, or taken up arms against her, a young Greek, named Spiridion Asbestos, a Spartan, fell desperately in love with her; and Elise, dazzled by the vivacity of his conversation and the loveliness of his black eyes, gave her heart wholly to him-for a time. As it was not always easy for Spiri dion to visit her uncle's house (for it was with an uncle she lived), they arranged to meet clandestinely as often as they could, either in the Bois de Boulogne, hiding themselves from the public gaze in the thick shrubberies there, or at the Madel...

Our Waste Basket. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 26 February 1887

Our Waste Basket. The waste-paper basket ought to receive the purely futile attempts at literature which lie before us, but they will all be carefhlly sent back to their owners on receipt of stamps? and addresses. A week's would lbe contributions lie on our table, and _ggest. thoughts which are partly melan .~oly and partly consoling. It is consoling, when we hear of the difficulty which the young writer finds in getting an "opening," to reflect that none of these writer., at least, deserve an "opening." Their mann scripts are perfectly valueless; and in this they represent the vast bulk of volunteer contributions. In some years' reading of unasked-for articles we have only once found one little pearl of available talent. Perhaps three or four articles out of as many hun dreds have been worth printing ; but always, except in one solitary case, have these been offered by writers already more or less knownto the public and to editors. Unasked for manuscripts come from everywhere. They...

The Evil Ending of Jerry Abershaw. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 26 February 1887

The Evil Ending of Jerry d Abershaw. ai Of Jeremiah's "deeds of daring," if any, I regret to saythat, after considerable research, i I have been able to learn very little. After receiving sentence of death, having in prison got some black cherries, he amused a himself by painting with 'their juice upon r the -white walls various crude pictures re presenting bold robberies he had committed, n more or less in the style represented. In one, he was single-handed stopping a post- | chaise; in another, firing into a chaise ; in another, taking the moneyfrom the passengers whilst he was being fired at right and left--= his brother highwayman lying' dead at his feet. He had, just before these pictorial efforts, been brought to trial (being then an old offender) at Croydon, in Sqrrey, on the 30th of July, 1795, charged; with having, at the 'Three brewers,"- in Southwark, murdered, 4 David Price, a police offi'er, and shot at and wounded another in the head. Acquitted, through a flaw in: the ...

Whose Cane Was It? [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 26 February 1887

'Whose Cane Was It ? Here" is the very latest bathing. story There are three pretty maids whose names begin with B., whose homes are in the sub urbs, and all in the same row of villas. Nice girls they are, front sweet seventeen to twenty. Cheerful and wide-awake girls, but with nothing ' loud" in their speech or man ner. Modest-girls, so. modest, in fact, that the unexpected sight of as conventional a thing as one could name, as harmless in re. pose as a kid glove s&nd as familiar to the sight, shocked them' into a collective swoon nearly, and so brok.e them up, individually that it is doubtful if either one can fairly pull herself together again this season. The families to which these three maids belonged were quartered for the summer at a large hotel at Morninj :ton. Except between the hours of 4 p.m. ion Saturday, and 8 a.m., on Monday, gentler nen were not in force at the hotel ; conseque atly the feminine contingent there lodged were forced to rely on them selves and a...

Art and Artists. There are sixty .rt schools and 11,000 art .students in the State of Massachusetts. A small Bacchus and a mutilated Statue of Mercury have been .found in Rome near the Via Tasso. The painter of the great " Battle of Get tysburg" was born at Sedan, and'the museum at that famous town contains six of his paint ings. The Statue of Liberty is now complete as far as the hips, and the inner• frame of iron which is to carry the head and raised right arm is in position. In order to permit the study of the gradual evolution of pictures from the first sketch, the French Government will hereafter demand the original draft of a painting when buying an artist's work for the public collec tions.

Oranges from Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 26 February 1887

Oranges from Australia. The Australians have been raising oranges and have been so successful that the Florida trade with England and the British Empire is likely to be seriously affected., From for eign reports the Australian oranges are as good as any that have been pat on the Lon-' don market. The first consignment arrived in London on the steamship John Elder, last spring. It consisted of 1,000 cases, and succeeding steamers have brought many more. England will be lkept supplied with oranges all tie year. In winter they will go from this country and from Spaiii; and as soon as the season of these countries is over they will arrive from the' antipodes. The oranges are not conveyed, 'when on the steamers, in refrigerating chambers, but as ordinary cargo, except that care is taken to allow the air free access to them. They are packed in cases, the majority of which hold 160, although some have contained 600. Each orange is wrapped in paper, and on, the whole, the cases when opezt- ...

The pretty dude had a young lady with him, and his pants were light and tight. The interesting couple were passing a butcher's shop just as a lank dog, pursuedby a brick, dashed out. The dog, in its own heedless, careless way, darted betweenz Alphonso's legs, and the brick butted him in the vest, and Alphonso sat in ar pool 'of tar. :He didn't want to sit down, but:.these circumstances over which he had no control took him by the hair and forced him down; and he stayed there look. ing ahead in: a dazed, helpless'way, till the tar got-a good grip on him.
