I'm Sitting on the Stile. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 16 May 1885

I'm Sitting: on the Stile. She turned the music swiftly over, Her lovely color came and went. She tossed her jaunty hat aside, And sat before the instrument.: The ivory keys her ivory hands Touched with ~m as ter touch, the while With sweetest voice she sang that sweet.' Old song, " I'm sitting on the stile." He softly stole within the room, . To hear her sing; entranced he sat Upon the most convenient chair, The chair which held her jaunty hat. She turned and looked with anguish'd eyes, He turned and looked.with sickly siile-. Behold the ruin he had wrought; And said, . "I'm sitting on the style 1"

He Could'nt Read It. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 16 May 1885

He Oould'nt Read it. The Rev. MIr. - was one of the most bishful m' en in his'pofesimon, and kas on stantly getting into scrapes through his nervous mistakes. it onh time he rose in his pulpit to give out the hymn, "This world is all a fleeting show," and after clearing, he.. struck up a high pitch of voice, and began solemnly- "This world is all a fleeting shoe." Every body smiled except the deacons, and the minister was covered with confusion as he began again "This world is all. shoUting flew." This only made; matters-worse,, and the unhappy. man, cleared his throat with tremendous force and began once again "This world is all a floating she." Then, he slammed the hymn book down, and wiping his clammy brow, said "Brethren, for some reason I cannot read that hymn as it should be read. We will omit it, and the. choir will please sing the grand .old lin sbin ining,' Just'"a I am, without one flea."'

Thought.ful Moments..-, I think somet?mes. • . ; And myopinioniis that therelis no more' of a fixed rule for success and happiness in life than that there is a rule for falling success fully out of a third storey window without breaking one's neck, and that being able to'' get pudding and milk constantly are nice things to be happy upon, though too much pudding and milk even will worry a man. The most happy individual I ever heard of hadno undergarment, aiid he w~uld 'Have remainedi happy'6:ttis day I believe if in an evil hour an A. S. S.

I also ruminate upon the spectacle pre sented by the individual, who can wear a paper collar for, a w'hole week and-keep it. clean.

A Baby's Complaint. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 16 May 1885

A Baby's Complaint. I am a little baby, one year old to-day, but, although only a year old, I have had enough of life already. I am disgusted with this frigid, unfeeling world; and am going to do the hop, skip and jump out of it at the first opportunity. Oh I if but one short year ago I could only have been allowed to gaze into futurity, and behold the miseries, tortures, rubber-necked bottles and discomforts that would continually attend me, I should cer" tainly have shrunk from the risky step; of getting here and postponed?my advent indefi nitely. 'But this wvas not 'allowed me. Those who should have been my natural protectors, loving and tenderly guarding me, have slapped me to sleep with an old slipper, and have been my most remorseless enemies. They have taken advantage of my weakness and inexperience, to abuse, torment, and worry me in an outrageous manner, and I won't stand it any longer. When I am tired and sleepy, I am instructed in the art of walking; when a pin has penetr...
