. lbumot'. Hard to Lose After. All.-" Seventeen hundred' lost umbrellas," said a bilious-look. ing man in a hotel reading-room, as he held in his h?nd a paper containing an account of a railway sale of articles left in the cars. "And yet it isn't always an easy matter to lose an umbrella. -Two weeks ago I started from Riverinna. On my _way to the railway station I stopped to say good-bye to a friend, and a shower came up. ' Take this old um brella,' he said, 'and throw it away when you get to the station.' ..'I purposely left the umbrella in the waiting-room, but just as the train was drawing away from the platform the ticket clerk came running after it and poked the umbrella at me through an open window. I put' out my head to thank him for his trouble, and my plug hat fell off and dis. appeared under the car-wheels. "Going out of the train in lMelbourne 1I was hailed by a brakeman with ' Hi, there, you've left your umbrella.' I took the um. brelln, thanked the man and gave him a ci...

Noveist, DAYS OF CRIME AND YEARS OF SUFFERING AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY. (Reprinted from "The Australasian" of 1867 by Special Permission.) CHAPTER XXIV. THE SHADOW FOLLOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 29 October 1887
Novelist. DAYS OF CRIME AND YEARS OF SUFFERING AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY. ------♦♦♦------ (Reprinted from "The Australasian" of 1867 by Special Permission.) ------♦♦♦------ CHAPTER XXIV. THE SHADOW FOLLOWS. I looked out this morning through my cell port upon the stormy waters. It was blowing a perfect hurricane. A tiny boat manned by two rowers attracted my atten- tion. The boat was trying to make head- way against the wind and sea. Bravely the rowers plied the oars, and nobly the tiny vessel mounted each threatening wave. But ever and anon a stronger blast than ordinary would sweep furiously over the waters, and backward the boat would be forced, despite the resolute exertions of those who manned her. For a full hour I watched the struggle, and at last I saw that the men gave up the contest in des- spair, for round went the boat, up went the sail, and away she flew before the con- quering gale. The rowers had contended long and earnestly, but the wind and the &nbsp; waves were stron...

LOCAL ITEMS. By announcement in anuother column it will be seen that the' Rev. Dr. Dale, the distinguished Congregational. Minister from Birmingham, now on a' visit to th'5 colony, will preach in the Brighton Con. gregational Church to-morrow morning. Those who \ittend may [ex-ict to hear a scholarly and maenly dieliverance'ori d question:that is sure to be of very great. interest. If.the congregation be as large as the reputation and abilities of "the preacher are great, it will crowd the church. A collection in aid; of the funds of the Congregational Union and Mission will be taken up during the service. THE action brought against the Rail way commissioners by Miss Herbert, of. Brighton, for damages resulted in a ver dict in her favor for £3,500. The com missioners paid £1000 into court as full satisfaction but the jurytook a more liberal and we may add equitab!e viewof the case. They also assessed the amount due to Dr. O'Hara at £110 ; to Dr. Caffyn, at £36; and to Dr. Nutting, a...

The Leader. JUSTICE TO ALL. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 1887. A SUDDEN EXIT. What Does it Mean? [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 5 November 1887
JUSTIOC TO ALL. SATUIDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 1S887. A SUDDEN EXIT. Whallt Does it nean?? TmxaIs have not jogged along to Mr H. Spark's liking at the lMoorabbin council table for some time. and on Monday last the climax was reached when that gentleman handed in his resignation to the astonished council lors. Whether the resignation was a prenieditated affair, or one of those sudden impulses .which sometimes seizes men. unawares, we do not pro fess to determine. The ostensible reason for committing the "happy despatch" was that the council are unwilling to take,ov.er the Beaumaris tramway as a " going concern." This significant :phrase was first objected to by Cr M'Swain, but seems to haveo received an unaccountable' share of tolerance from most of the councillors, and was insisted on with groat v'ehemonce by Mr Sparks. ' his gentleman doubtless imagines the council has been playing a " fast and loose'' game with the tramway com pany, hence possibly, his exit. But it may be said that even if...

NOTES AND -COMMENTS. The Public .Works i ,. Department has accepted the :tender of Mesars David Munro and Co. for '-he erection of the new Falls Bridge at a coastof £44,242 18s ltd. Only colonialmade aigle iron is to be used. In the thinnest of thin houses, on a question of national importance,' Mr Shiele carried-the second reading of his divorce bill on Wednesday evening.' As this-measure is of such a revolutionary character, and interferes, with a somewhat "free hand," with the. very foundations of our social order we trust a majority in the Assembly will insist on the question being remitted to the country for its verdict, or radically modified. There are many anomilies in our present divorce laws, we admit, that ought to.be removed. The coat of procuring a divorce, unless the applicant sue "in forma pauperism,' is ridiculously excessive. When real, solid grounds for a divorce do exist, the process. should_ be ais inexpensive and simple as possible. Laws should be for. the' benef...

A waist twenty-two inches. round the bottom when made, five and 'one half inches long: under the arms, with sleeves seven inches long, and seven inches around at the arm. hole, will do for a child of average growth until he needs short clothes.
