A MIRACLE OF FOLLY. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 27 October 1876

A MIRAOLE OF FOLLY.. A remarkable instance of suicidal ingenuity occurred on the night of the 20th of June in a boarding house at Lafayette, Indiana, United States. A man named James Moore, who arrived at the establishment on the morning of the day in question, and expressed his intention of remaining there a week, called at a machine shop in the city and bought a large n3w broad axe and. two iron bars, three inches wide by one inch thick, and sixteen inches long, which ho had riveted to the head ot tihe axe. On either side, fastened to these bars, in the shape of a handle to an axe, he bad a system of wooden bars eight feet long, the extreme end of which was fastened to the floor of his room by hinges. The axe wan raised and held to its nearly perpen dicular position by a double cord fastened to the wall. Between the cords stood a candle, arranged so that when ;t burned down to the cords it would burn them off and the axe fall. Where the axe would strike, Moore placed a small box, ...

HARROW. 24th October, 1876. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 27 October 1876

HARROW. (FROM oUl OWN COnRRESPONDENT.) 24th October, 1878. Shearing is now done at the most of the stations in tills neighbourhood, and those that have not yet finished will do so in the course of a few days. The publioana have been doing a roaring trade during the last' few mwks., as the abooepwashore have been "l kncking down " their chlleques. In old times this used to be thie fseloun with the ashearers also, but between the shearer of twelve or fifteen years ago, and the one of tile present day thore is a marked difference. The old hand seams to have given place entirely to a new class, and the modern shearer, who is in the inajorityof cases a " codektoo," has more sense than to throw away his hard earnicng in that way. Treons of sheatrers on horsobauk have been pa9hing through i?rrow lately on their way latok fromt the abods farther up, where they hiuish earlier than in this district. The usual shlearere races at Mullagh statiol are to be hold on Thursday, as it is expeoted the...

The experi mont haIs already been performed on several occasions before the King of Sweden, nud Emperor of Germany, the Empress of Austrina, and other Con tinental magnates, andol the' eoc coes of the achllovemen? abroad in duced Sir Edwvnrd Leo to give the English public an opportunity of wit nessing those wonders, which in great numbers they did from the cnastoru lopes of Muswell.hlll.

"A MAN IN THE HOUSE." [ORIGINAL-BY R. W.] [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 27 October 1876

"A MAN IN THE HOUSE." [ORIGINAL-BY R. W.] Blinker is an inveterate young joker. His twenty-first birthday coming round the other day, he thought it would be a good oppor. tunity to indulge in a piece of face tiousness. On the eve of his birth day, he took supper as usual with the rest of the lodgers at Mrs. Junkett's, and retired about 11 o'clock,, the usual hour of proceeding to rest in that well-ordered establishment. No one in the house was aware that the anniversary of Blinker's natal day was athand, and if they had known, I don't suppose any of them would have felt particularly Interested in the event, except in the anticipation of a 'shout.' But Blinker was determined that they should know it. About half-past twelve, when the house was all quiet, and everybody engaged in contributing to a general chorus, Blinker got up, partially dressed. himself, and.sallied out into the passage. He rushed down to the far" end, knocked violently at Mrs. .Tunkett's door, and called out, ' A ma...
