A CRIMINAL'S BIOGRAPHY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 8 November 1895

A CRIMINAL'S BIOGRAPHY. Is connection with the notorious series of murders committed by the Anglo Australian Criminal, Deeming, a Sydney paper states that the idea that murderer Deemizng's autobiography was altogether too dreadful for publication, and had therefore been destroyed, is altogether erroneous.. And thereby hangs a' tale. From the day of' Deeming's arrival in custody . at Melbourne right up to his trial he did little else but write the story of his life. This information duly reached England, and soon the London City Press Agency cabled out to his solicitor, Marshall Lyle, asking how much lie would take.for Deeming's story. More in the spirit of levity than' of business, Mr. Lyle replied "£1000," and was as tonished at the immediate acceptance of his terms, and the cabling to a Melb. Bank of £1000-to be paid 'over on delivery of the certified complete auto igrpip ThI-is eicouraged, the solicitor set no limit to expense in preparing the defenceon which he_ altogether spent...

AN AUSTRALIAN CURIOSITY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 8 November 1895

AN AUSTRALIAN CURIOSITY. ACCORDING to a Sydney newspaper whose information is usually to be relied on, that extraordinary lasus naturae, the Australian platypus has further distin guished himself. First, he astonished the scientists by wearing a bill like a duck; then his wife, not to be outdone, shook them up by laying eggs. Not content with being a beast and a bird at the same time, old man platypus has shown now that, while he is about, there need be no demand foi snakes, for he can take on the contract himself. Home in 1802 noticed on the male platypus's liind legs a pair of spurs, and thought- they had to do with his courtship and marriage. But Jamieson, in 1807, seeing the results of spur-wounds in men and dogs, declared the spur was a poison wea pon. Bennett and Owen pooh-poohed the idea, but bushmen generally stuck to the poison theory. Then along came Prof. Anderson -Stewart,-and-said-the bushmen were right. To settle the mat ter once for all, Drs. Martin and Tids well, of ...

"PERMISKUS PARS." [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 8 November 1895

"PERMISKUS PARS."' (Br Roso..) According to that eminent litterateur Macaulay, "to every man upon this earth death cometh soon or late," and he further enquired defiantly, "And how can man die better than facing fearful odds, For the ashes of his fathers and .the temples of his gods ." We do however do these things better in Australia. A brewer, until, recently in the employ of a well-known Melbourne firm, went forth to the Cup on Tuesday and faced the odds against Hivea. With rareand indomitable courage he witnessed the hero's overthrow at the feet of the classically named beauty Auraria i This degenc;..cy of the male sex was too much. Returning forthwith to . his temple he contemplated infinity directly above the chief beer-vat, and his body was found therein next morning. His woes faded,;and amid the most ecstatic.visions lie quitted this troublous sphere.;' What a hflavenly exit! and what a legion of applications there should be for his successorship I ' Our new Governor is here...

AUSTRALIAN CABLE SPEED. TrE =.record in. cablegraummic speed to date is that obtained by the Melbourne "Age'" newspaper, announcing the result of the last English Derby race. This message was lodged in the London office at 3.45 p.m., which was 1.45 a.m. Mel bourne time. It reached Adelaide at 2.47. Melbourne time. and was received inthe Melbourne Telegraph Office and thence telephoned to the .Age office at 2.51 a.m. The time occupied in trans mission from London to the Age office was 'thus 1 hoir 6 minutes. There is no information to hand as to the interval between the running of the race at the course and'the arrival of the news at the London office, but this would not be more than a few minutes. The trans fii6iioi oif thsi?ressagein iitehou?6mimites was unusually fast, especially as no special preparations were made to clear the lines, as in the case of test messages, like that from the Prince of Wales to the Earl of Hopetoun, the then Governor of Victoria.

A GOVERNMENT ADVERTISING BUREAU. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 8 November 1895

A GOVERNMENT ADVERTISING BUREAU. Tire discovery that numerous people of teetotal. and non-smoking proclivities have shown their emphatic objection to being compelled to distribute the adver tisements of aacertain brand of beer, and another of tobacco, by tearing from the new Victorian post-cards those portions bearing-themhrings into consideration the whole question of the propriety, of State Advertising. That a large section of the public does strongly object to the notion is evidenced by the promnptitude and extent of its action, and the depart mental notice being drawn thereto within but a few (lays of the inauguration ofthe innovation. Evidently disgust is not confined to the classes of the public just specified, but toqa large number of other people who differ with the opinion stated on the post-cards that so and so's wares are " pure," and who deny tle right of the State to tacitly endorse that view. One thing may be remarked,namnely,itn no other country has the Postal Departm...

THE INFLUENCES OF HEREDITY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 8 November 1895

THE INFLUENCES OF HEREDITY. -4-- DR. G. A. SYMn, one of the most energetic and painstaking medical aux iliaries on the staff of the Melbourne Hospital has published in a series of ar ticles on "Heredity and the Status of Woman," in the course of which he throws some new light on the curious and apparently anomalouslaws of human heredity. He says inter alia :-" It is apparently more common for qualities to be transmitted from the female and especially to the male offspring, while it is also common for qualities to be trans mnitted from the male parent to the female offspring, so that if this rule held good for two generations the males would resemble their maternal grandfather, and the females their paternal grandmother. Of course, in very nmany cases the trans mission is from the male parent to male offspring; but the first rule is certainly very common and helps to explain why genius need not be hereditary; and why the sons of great men so seldom attain distinction, though there is...

ANGLING. TROUT DISTRIBUTION. A tosT important part. of the year's operation of the Victorian Fish Protec tion Society and Anglers' Club (in which many local residents take deep interest) has always been the distribution of the trout fry so kindly placed at their disposal year by year by the late Sir Samuel Wilson, of.

This year his executors through Mr. Clarence Wilson. presented tile society with some 5000 English trout fry and 200 Californian salmon, and the onerous task of conveying them to Melbourne and placing them in the water was undertaken by two members of the club, Messrs.
