At the Church. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 5 March 1887

At the Chureh. " Preachers have odd experiences, of which they say-.very little;" said a minister. ,' When. I instituted my Sunday evening meetings 'I was very much gratified at the ltrge: attendance of young people.. I attri buted.the large audiences, of course, to in terest in religious services, and I took all the young ladies and young gentlemen into. my heart, and praised them ._without stint for their exhibition of zeal.' One night,.as I aninounced the hymn 'I need Thee Et-exy Hour,' I distinctly saw a young lady in one of the front seats nudge a young gentleman at her side. Three seats back I saw a yoing. gentleman nudge a young lady, and five seats back I saw another gentleman' nudge a young lady.: "This set me to thinking, and the next Sunday night I gave out the hymn with my eyes wide open, and as I uttered the words 'Ii Need Thee Every Hour,' I saw several people nudge several other people, and my notions of the zeal of these young ladies and gentlemen changed. They camel...

A Night's Lodging. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 5 March 1887

A Night's Lodging. The steamer "Kangaroo" was just casting off-her moorings from a Melbourne wharf, : roaring lustily and trembling all over with -compressed steam, as I ran across the gang way just about to be removed. It was a dull, leaden morning, Boreas roaring overhead in an answer to the challenge from the steamer's waste-pipe in a sullen, determined way. Thick .fog was brooding on the river, everything was chilly and damp, raw and uncomfortable. "We shall have it pretty rough outside," said a man who had taken his seat beside me, as, panting and exhausted, I was trying to re gain breath and composure. Assuredly he was right, and I began to regret that Ihad made such haste to catch the steamer. For I felt that I was in no case to jostle with the elements. I was the victim of dyspepsia, hy pochondria, what you will-an altogether me lancholy and dejected being, seeking relief by a temporary change of clime. Not that the voyage in prospect was a long one-only to a Western Distric...

For the Ladies [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 5 March 1887

An innovatioh in bodices is a new style of shoulder-piece, cut roind like a collar, and .over which the bodice is,so arranged in small spikes as to form a complete circle. Bodices are now often made heart-shaped in the front, with trimmings of.lace and tulle. Corslets of faille 'or.velvet, open in front over tulle plastrons of either gauze or crape, made close up to the throat, and finished off with ribbon and lace, are now in vogue with the ladies. Black Lyons velvet is now much used for jackets, made with double-breasted fronts adorned with two rows of buttons. The back is cut perfectly tight-fitting, leaving a little opening at the basque. Bright-colored silks are chosen for the lining, and the whole is bound with very thick silk braid. Evening wraps are now mostly seen with Algerian plush of vivid various-hued tints used for the lining. . Waterproof cloaks are greatly improved in appearance; they are cut redingote style, with sleeves like those of a visite; the silk, which is ei...

Bismarck's Brandy. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 5 March 1887

Bismarek's Brandy. When Prince Bismarck made his speech, upon which listening nations 'hung, in the Reichstag lately, he drank nine glasses of briandy · j and water durihiig tlhe course : of it. What we are going to remark is perhaps not of much, but still it may be-to teetotallers, anyhow- of somen significance. Would the tone the German Chancellor adopted towards .rance in his speech have been so " frankly brutal" if he had drunk, say, six glasses of brandy instead of nine? And to carry out the argument, if he had drunk no brandy at all, would he have all the same insisted on the increase of the army? , In all probability he would. Bismarck is a man of powerful physique and hard head, upon which a few glasses of brandy more or less have, perhaps, no particular. effect. But all statesmen are not like him. This brings us to the pointwe are driving at. Ho lmany wars khave been precipitated by drlken kings and stdtes me? ? . At least one of our (speakingimperi ally) wars with France w...

An Australian Millionaire. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 5 March 1887

An Australian' Millionaire. One Monday afternoon, over a bottle of wine, two journalists proposed to start be ·tween themselves a Mean Men's Society..The idea-was that, instead of spending their surpluir money in riotous living, each of them should put it away in the Savings' Bank as he' got it. They maintained, with, enthusiasm and a considerable amount of self-delusive logic, that the commencement of 'a system of economy like this would mean riches heaped up for both of them in. the not remote to-come. This matter being satisfactorily settled, they proceeded to spend the nucleus of their future fortune on more wine. As a natural result, anecdotes ensued. One of them wastb the following effect :-A baker carrying on business in the suburº,s supplied the household of a certain well-known millionaire with bread for se veral months without seeing anything in the shape :of payment. At' last he went to the inillionaire's office, and, presenting his bill,' a~ked. him -poinut blank 'for 't...

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

A hot, strong lemonade, taken at bedtime, will break up a bad cold. - Camille Flammarion declares that as soon as the powerful Lick glass shall be turned upon lVUars there will be discovered clear. evidences -as to animal life on that planet.. .According to L'Ectricien, M. H. Dunville pledges his scientific reputation to the ac curacy of the following observation: 'If two glasses of water be placed, one.upon the iorth pole of a powerful .magnet, and the .other. upon the south pole, in four or five minutes the. former acquires a sliglitilklline reaction, while that on the south pole becomes slightly acid." It was a remark of Linnmus that three flies. would consume -a dead. horse sooner than a lion could. He doubtless included the fami lies of the three flies. Asingle fly, the Nat uralist tells us, will .sometimes produce 20,000 larvm, each of which in a few.days may be the parent of another 20,000, .and thus the- descendants of' three flies would soon devour an animal much larger tha...
