A POPULAR DILEMMA. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 26 February 1887

A POPULAR DILEMMA. ANxIous WIFE--" Oh, Tom, dear, I am afraid to let you travel by steamer to-morrow. Promise me that you will take the overland and not the water route." Tom-""Yes, but which is which ? If you start by water you're apt to bring up on the rocks, and have to walk overland; and if you go by train you run the risk of rolling off the rails into some.: creek or other and having to swim. One'll be about as safe as 'tother until we learn: to fly."

For the Ladies [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 26 February 1887

A-new idea for scrap-albums is to obtain the "Heroes of the Victorian' Cross," issued by Messrs. Thidgould and Co., London. Above each is placed a neatly printed slip describing the name of the receiver of the honor, thel number of his regiment, and the deed of gallantry which had met with so splendid a re ward. A new woollen material, with narrow cash mere stripes in two colors alternating with two others of tufted striped and frize velvet, is a trimming which, bearing the singular name of Maitre Ambroise, is used to form wide bands to edge skirts o0 tunics, and form plaston, collar and parements on woollen costumes of a sad color. Othello is one of the. latest fabrics for either short or long cloaks; it is a warm mixture, richly figured with elaborate raised designs outlined here and there with silk shading, which has an admirable effect. It can be had in black, white, and all pale and dark colors for evening wraps. - One of the prettiest of our velvets is the Lyons, and we are gl...

SWalt Whitman Under Arrest. The report that Walt Whitman is infirm' Sand poor calls to mind a-story of the early days, when the auth6r of "Blades of Grass" lived with his father in Babylon,. says the New York LWorld.. The old gentleman oc cupied the Minturn place, west of the vil lage about a mile and a half. 'It was in 1840. 'The budding poet, then about eighteen years of age, had just returned home after his venture: in journalism in Huntington. His success had not been marked; in fact, it is questioned whether it should' not be put down as a miserable failure.. Walt Whitman, as described by the old ladies of the village, was a handsome youth; full of life, pert in his manner and brisk in his walk. He was broad shouldered and muscular, always walking erect, with'a sail or swing of easy independence. His dress suggested a "water.dog." His collar' was cut low and his shirt front was usually .rolled back, exposing his robust breast. A shoirt'sailor-jacket and wide trousers con-' trib...

AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 5 March 1887

AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION::. Agricultural colleges are just now targets or much sharp criticism,:because the course )f instruction-is broadened, out to enibracee ;ubjects which seen to have little relation to ;he cultivation of crops. Many of the critics, who do most oftheir'farmwork in :the .news papers, seem to be distressed because the students are likely to gain some through mental discipline. They. fear that young. men-wlio receive substantial mental training, will abandon the farm. While not asserting it in set terms, the undelying assumption of their argument is that a tiller of the soil ought to know little besides' the art of culti-? vating crops. He should be an expert at wielding the hoe or guiding the plough,, but if he knows anything of history,, general literature or other subjects which are classi fled under the general name of the. humani ties, he'will to.that extent: be unfitted for agriculture. No one with the ordinary collegiate education, takes to:farniing,' they sa...
