Mr. and Mrs. Bowser. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 26 February 1887
Mr. and Mrs. Bowser. There are some funny things about Mr. Bowser which the Public ought to know, and which I am determined to hold up as a solemn warning to. such young women. as may be thinking of marriage. For one thing, Bowser doesn't treat the baby right. For the first few weeks he made a great fuss over it, and one little squeal at midnight would bounce him out of bed, ready to go for a doctor, without taking. time -to pull his boots on. Alas ! what a change I' The other night poor baby had the colic or some other ailment, and it cried steadily from 11 to 12 without Bowser mov ing an eyelid. Then I roused:him up to get some " pap," and even before he 'ot out of bed he said "thunder l" and called the baby a "thing I" I remonstrated-certainly I did -and he turned on me with:. " I know what the young 'un needs I He wants knocking down with a crowbar three or four times to take the ugly out of him I" I've lived with Bowser a good many years, but I never knew him in his true light ...
DRILLING FACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 26 February 1887
DRILLING FACTS. On level or moderately rolling lands the grain-drill is undoubtedly preferable as a seed-planter for wheat. But on steep lands there are some objections to the drill, which may make broadcast sowing and' the old fashioned method of covering with the har row preferable . The uneven depths at which drills deposit seeds on steep land sometimes show curious results. The lower side of the drill weighs down the tubes, and on mellow soil carries the seed three or four inches deep. Going nearly straight down a hill has nearly the same effect. In going uphill the seed is drilled shallower, and travelling in this direc tioa the grain always comes up quicker and stronger. , There is little or no help for this when the drill is used on steep fields, and the drill is not an altogether satisfactory imple ment for seeding steep hillsides. There-are cases where the farmer must choose between the drill and broadcast sowing if he expects to obtain the best results. .
Agricultural, &c. BRIEF NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 26 February 1887
BRIEF NOTES. A New.York Trins writer says that two ounces of saltpeter, dissolved in. a quart, of warm water and thrown into the cistern,-will; remove the offensive odor of the-water. The land that will maintain twenty com mon-bred cows will maintain twenty well bred ones, and the annual proit from the latter 'will be considerably more than from the former. It is the same with an animal as with a steam boiler-the more complete the combus tion of the food or fuel it gets the more satis factory will be the result, because there is less waste. A contemporary, writing upon the evo lution of the tomato, says: "Not many years ago the fruit was mostly skin and seeds. Possibly, as in the case of the banana, these seeds will yet disappear altogether, and the' plants will have to be propagated by. cut tings." Hardly a possible contingency, from the fact that the plant comes true from seed. Who has ever seen the seed of the banana ? -Under a forcing system of treatment the best hens in the wor...
Teetulpa Talk. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 26 February 1887
The editor of the Teetulpa Rustlerhavinu 'Published an article concerning Mr. Bowser, which. the latter seemed offended at, was both astonished and dismayed to receive a challenge to a duel signed by Bowser in.: which he was offered his choice of weapons as well as locality. He did not answer by post, as he was re quested to, but the ensuing issue of his paper contained the following : " Readers of the Rustler will remember. that in our last issue we described Mr. Bow ser as a man who would not hesitate to Iob his father's grave to get the filling from his teeth unless they were padded with zinc, as that gentleman 'died at the Adelaide gaol and was buriedEby therauthorities. "We are surprised that anybody could imagine for a moment that we should dis 'tort the facts seriously; we know that Bow-. ser is an zexpert at making nuggets when the miners are asleep, but we give him credit for more sense thanto dissect a grave for the purpose of securing a few fragments of zinc, "In regard t...
A Romance of the Ballet. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 26 February 1887
A Romance of the Ballet. The masher's weird, fantastic form The stalls had nightly seen; Upon the ballet's second row Flashed forth his glance's sheen ; . For in that row there tripped his love, His life, his soul, his queen. No speech with her he'd had ; but yet A voice that ne'er beguiled Told him that whenf she glanced that way She blushed, and' sighed, and smiled. With- writhing lip; that masher slim, His fatal grace reviled. " Oh, fatal beauty I'. wailed the youth, " And must my notice blight E'en things I love ? Oh, dower of hate 1" And so for many a night He struggled bitterly with fate,. But lost the unequal fight. . " The die is cast 1" he sternly said. And reached the stage's door; " Alas, poor girl I I've striven hard, And man may do no more ; It is my doom to sear and blast 'Whate'er I most adore. " Too late' Ah, bitter words 1" he hissed ; "Henceforth of ruth I'll none.; They come in groups, in twos and threes, Now, slowly, one by one. No gain to shrink,.or.blench, or q...
Old Convict Life. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 26 February 1887
Old Convict Life. The convict settlement in New: South: ,Wales was for a long time,, according, to :Bonwick,; an ugly place' to reside-iii. _' Cap tain Cheyne, Inspector of Public Works, referred, he says, to the existence of'" a fearful' degree of depravity; unparalleled in any age," while an English clergyman, called the islaid " that den of thieves, that cave of robbers, that cage of unclean birds, .that isthmus between earth and hell." Hither, in 1798, came the 'famous' pick pocket, George Barrington. 'On the journey out the captain, a kind-hearted man, had freed many of the convicts who were in a weakly state from their irons, and permitted them alternately, ten at a time, to walk on deck. Two odf them (Americans) iresolved to seise the ship, and got the majority to join in the plot. - It was agreed on the first favourable opportunity that.part of those who were on deck should force' the arm-chest, overpower the sentinels, and give a' signal for those below to join them. One da...

A Sada.AIetion.: Dr.. Carver has lately been making some experiments with regard to hydrophobia, and is intensely;interested in the subject. Scene-His consulting-room.. Enter Young Sharpshins. ... Sharpshins-" Some time ago, doctor, I was bitten by a dog.": Joctor (bringing out his pocket-book) "'Yes." Sharpshins- ' And ever since I have felt a great disinclination to do any work." I Doctor (more and more interested)-" Ah, yes. Go on." .Sharpshins--" And I don't like getting up in the morning." - Doctor-"' Just so. And how long has this lasted ?" Sharpshins (preparing to depart)-" I was a baby in arms when I was bitten, doctor,. and I have felt the disinclination to work ever since I-can remember." (The doctor exercises his eitensor muscle, and Sharpshins leaves in a hurry.) Sydney news: "The mother of Kendall, the poet, is now an inmate of the Benevolent Asylum." 'Twas only the other day that a, score or so of purse-proud cads and snobs stood in the rain with bared heads at the -un...

NOODLE SOUP.--Many: persons have eaten noodle soup, but not every house-wife knows how to make the noodles successfully. Take four eggs,, four tablespoonfuls of milk, and as much flour as the milk and eggs will take up. Make a hole in the centre of the flour, pour in the eggs and milk and stir until there is a soft dough, lay this on the board and work enough flour into it to make it firm and smooth. The longer it is worked the better will be the noodles. Cut the dough into four pieces, roll each piece as ,thin as paper, .until you can almost see through it, and lay it on a clean cloth to dry, but not too long or it will :crumble in cutting. When, you have finished rolling oat the fourth piece, the first will be about ready to cut. Lay this piece on the board, dust a little flour over it, and cut it across. each way., Lay these pieces one on top of the other, roll them together'loosely, and proceed to cut them as narrow as you'desire them.' For soup they are best cut as'fine as poss...
Friendship. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 26 February 1887
Friendship. Like mt:s ic heard on the still water, Like pines when the wind passeth by, Like peacs in the depths of the ocean, Like stars that enamel the sky, Like .June and the odor of roses, Like s lew and the freshness of morn, Likes 'unshine that kisses the clover, Like assels of silk on the corn, n Like n otes of the thrush in the woodland, Like b, rooks where the violets grow, Like r: ainbows that arch the blue heavens, Like c louds when the sun ippetha low. Like d treams of Acadian pleasures, Like ec ilors that gracefully blend, Like ei -erything breathing of pureness, LiKt I?ire, is the love of a friend,
Our Neighbor's Dog. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 26 February 1887
Our Neighbor's Dog. Our home is in the suburbs of the city, and we have asmall garden andhothouse, and afew hives of bees. We lived in our little Eden in *peace and harmony until our nearest neighbor bought a dog. He was 'of the regulation ice-cart color, and he -only had one ear which he wore on the top of his head in Queen Anne style. His eyes were red and bleary, while his delicate mouth re minded one of a rubber shoe stretched around a lamp-post. His gait was that of a' drunken alligator (I never saw a drunken alligator but I-,can imagine how one would look) and his tail was long and bushy just about the right fit for a tin-pot. He also had a tendency to roam, and a week after his introduction into our neighborhood, you could not look around a corner without seeing that dog. (I had almost forgotten to say that his poetical: name was, Scraps.) Go into the hen-house and he would come scurrying out between. your legs and compel you to turn a graceful summersault; Go into the cellar...
Something About Snakes. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 26 February 1887
Something About Snakes. " Yes, toothache is a common failing among snakes," said the snake-house man at the Zoo, lately. "You would be surprised. ..One-half of them die from. cancer in the jaw.- or some place in +he head, the result of toothache. The only way to save their lives when they get cancers is to cut them out. I have performed quite a number of. surgical operations on snakes of this kind." - The visitor gave a shudder at the very thought 6f handling anything like a venom ous serpent. "Now, here is a snake," said Keeper Thompson, coolly lifting the top of a case in which a number of ugly, vicious looking black snakes were squirming about. " This fellow I took the eye out of once. I'll show him to you," continued the keeper, putting his hand down the case and grabbing a long -black reptile by the neck. The snake's black eyes gleamed, and his forked tongue darted in and out with anger. Keeper Thompson opened a few more cases and took out one snake after another, with a view o...

Song of a Dynamitard. Sing a song of dynamite, Of massacre and treason; Give us nitro-glycerine, Not eloquence nor reason.
