In Maine a certain kind of Beer said to be non intoxicating is called " Uno because would be Beer drinkers in that state Are in the habit of asking for a Glass of you it is said that the stuff is genuine lager Beer until the seller is arrested for Selling. It and then by some mysterious process it becomes one question too Many for a tee of total abstained " such a dream As i had last night husband May i hear about it Well yes. I dreamed i was in a great establishment where they sold husbands. There were beauties some in Glass cases and marked at fearful prices and others were sold at less figures. Girls were paying out fortunes and getting the handsomest men i Ever saw. It was " did you see any like Ine there dear " yes. Jast As i was leaving i saw a whole lot like you labelled 4 Teeto tales lying on the remnant counter and ticketed 4 a Job lot cheap " the failure of attempting to build up a race of Model Young men and women has been fully illustrated in this City of churches and Shams by the . And the . Many of the leaders of those organisations begin to recognise the fact that their object is not realized and now to try to meet the difficulty propose an amalgamation of the two bodies so that the sexes May freely mix together natural at last. Quiz is pleased to see that at least some of the Goody goodies Are improving and find it is useless fighting against nature. Let them mix by All Means and give them the Opportunity of enjoying reasonable amusement in the company of each other. Where will you find the most lewd and filthy language and thought expressed ? Why where men Are compelled to live together without the society of females As in the forecastle of ships in shearing Sheds and on stations. These men under different circumstances would be As refined and guarded in their conduct As the Best of us and mrs. Colton deserves the thanks of the Community for taking this one step in the right direction. Never mind Madam what they say As regards converting the two organisations into a flirting and matchmaking society. Even that is commendable in the cause of humanity. Fancy drinks. To make the " club cocktail take a wine Glass of Sherry and vermouth in equal parts add Orange bitters to suit taste and Cool with cracked ice and shake Well. The ladies place a handful of cracked ice in a Goblet put in Raspberry syrup one Teaspoon Ful add one bottle lemonade and mix Well to dissolve ice.

" gents Champagne a quart of Champagne add a wine Glass of Creme de Seuthe or sugar with bananas pineapple or strawberries to suit taste and sufficient ice to Cool. A democratic candidate. Or. A. Mcgregor Dey who in another portion of this Issue announces himself As a candidate for Frome has sent a copy of his political Creed to quiz and quiz is very pleased to see that it is of a tolerably democratic character. Some objection has been raised to or. Dey because he is a pastoralist but As he Points out himself he has worked As a Navvy on the Hallett and Terowie Section of our Northern railway and is still in sympathy with the workers so much so that he has declined to be associated in any Way with Pas toral or capitalistic organisations. Briefly stated his views Are As follows in favor of a progressive land tax exemption up to �1,000 or in default of that increase the present land tax with exemption up to �500. As Small holdings would Only have to pay the minimum under a progressive tax quiz does not see the necessity for exemption but the Case is different with an All round increase of the land tax. In favor of taxing absentees Point ing out that the South australian company goes on for Ever and thereby even escapes the succession duties. Would put an end to the alienation of Crown lands entirely and would substitute leasing with fixity of tenure. Supports free compulsory and secular education the state recognition of the eight hours system the granting of a site for a trades Hall the Carriage of wheat at the same rates As minerals working men s blocks payment of members and part Xix. He opposes the Stock tax and any further borrowing and would remove the duties from the necessities of life and objects to so Many railway com missioners. The Creed is fairly advanced but quiz would like to hear something about a state Bank and the nationalization of locomotive construction and All work that can be undertaken by the state. Amalgamation. . Y. . Dear quiz As a member of the Young men s Christian association and As a would be member of the Young women s Christian association i desire publicly to join Issue with the views expressed by or. Yirgo to the advertiser s representative on the proposed amalgamation of the two associations above named and i address my protest to you because i know you Are emphatically against anything like pig headed conservatism. Or. V. Is so evidently actuated by a feeling of being on the shelf that his contentions and objections will be better left Undi cussed. He says the building will become just a huge flirting establishment and adds i speak As a married Man yes poor Chap. He Speaks As one who would not be allowed to flirt. So much for or. Virgo. We All like him he s a rattling Good fellow and a Man but still human and it is the old Adam in him that makes him wince at the idea of All we Young unfettered Chappies whispering our love to the members of the ., and he All the while left out in the cold so that we Are justified in regarding or. A s views on the subject As not Worth considering. Not so lady col ton. If i might without being considered flippant be allowed to give her a nickname i would Call her the grand old there s none of your retail Trade about her. It s a respectable wholesale order she wants to marry the one association to the other and her closing words on the subject Are singularly felicitous a the Union of the sexes is rather a charming one and i really am in favor of the amalgamation of the two u Gin a body meet a body com in thro the Hooray. She goes further. " undoubtedly says she 4 the amalgamation of the two bodies and the mingling of the sexes would have a refining and allowing just so my opinion to a t. I confess to feeling rather rough and anything but holy but i am convinced that if Only some Young woman of the Christian association in Flinders Street or wherever it is would come and keep company with me at Gawler place i should quickly become both refined and hallowed. You see they Are such a very Well bred lot. But it s just struck me my dear quiz that the Gawler place rooms in their present state Are not exactly adapted to the uses lady col ton suggests they would be put to. Kow i m not shy but i like a Little privacy. When i steal a kiss and when i pop the question i insist on a room to myself. I expect that others will share my views and that being the Case the rooms would have to be partitioned up say into Weatherboard pens 6 by 6. A few ferns and Palms dotted Here and there would give a sufficiently romantic air to the place. But the greatest Beauty in lady Colton s scheme is that All the spooning could be carried on under official supervision. Or. Virgo for instance could be appointed flirt inspector in chief and would have free entry to any of the pens and not even under the necessity of knocking at the door a cough would be courteous by Way of warning. Of course he would have to take his Chance of old boots. But it is a Beautiful thought this of lady Colton s. There is some thing unworldly about it it smells of a better place. What a lot of wedding presents one would have to buy. Are you a member quiz 2 yours Faith fully guileless Godfrey. A curious conversation Between a judge in one of Indian courts and a jury is reported in one of the Indian papers. " gentlemen said the judge Are you ready to give your verdict yes said the Foreman.
