SOME CURIOUS CASES OF KLEPTOMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 24 February 1881

SOME CURIOUS CASES OF; KLEP r0OMANIA. .. (mot "CHAMBERS' JOURNiAL Among the various kinds'of insanity which are pleaded in courts of justice as an excuse for the commniasiot of crimesle that irresistible propensity to pockle: articles, or, more correctly, to steal, whims has been elegantly denominated klepto mania. According to authentic authority. thts mental disease is far more prevalent than is generally suppoed;, and the re. corded instances of various kinds ansd degrees of such are both numerous and peculiar. - With regard to the intensity of thr dispo.itiou to comnit'thefts, tois is often so great as to becoaue inourable. 'A cas? is related of a man who would not eat unless his food was stolen; in consequence of which his attendant humoured him by placing his food in a corner, where it appeared hidden, but could easily be, soo to 'speak, purfoined.' A lady was also affected with this monomania so strongly that upon her trial for theft' she said that she had such a mad ioingig ...

HINTS TO STAMMERERS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 24 February 1881

HINTS TO STAIMERERS. I commenced operations iy writing out a very large number of ordinary sentences, as they presented themselves. Having ex ammed these' sentences onie by one, and knowing well wherel should fail in uttering them as they stood, I sought to devise some method by which those consonant initials might be got rid of, or, at all eveuts, dimin. ished. It struckme that if Icould contrive, by an artificial division of the words compos. ing each sentence, to bring the consonant at the end of a division; instead of at the cons. mencement, a grand object would be thus achieved ; for constants at the end of a word present no special diffliculty; the glottis hav. ing been already openeds by the preceding vowel sound, the terminating constant flows out almost as a matter of course. It is as 'hen we poer liquid from a full bottle. .At frsa it runs.intermittently, with a-"gluk. gluk," but when once enough of the liquid is out to admit. the air freely the obstruetion ceases.

THE WONDERS OF ROTOMA HANA. After sailing across a beautiful lake, enclosed with lofty hills, and up a pie turesque arm or inlet of the same, we land at the month of a swift-running, narrow, but deep .stream, and with two stout sturdy aMaories to paddle, and my female Ma.,ri guide, I embark in a log canoe, and after paddling away for a couple of miles or so, we land; my guide leading the way through a narrow trail or path, over.rown with ferns and ti-tree scrub, for about a quarter of a mile, when, suddenly emerging from the ti-trer, a wonkderfully beautiful sight burst upon me-one of "' the sights" of the world. unique and unrivalled, and known as the " White Terrace."

The Warragul Guardian. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1881. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 24 February 1881

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1SS1. T\a hlave often been surprised as well as vexed at the apathy displayed by the inhabitants of Warragul (and to a certain extent by the rdsideuts of the district) whenever any entertain ment of a public character is provided. We are led to make these remarks by reason of the sparse attendance which we observed at the gathering on Tues day evening at the Atheoneum. The object was praiseworthy, the musical and" other talent could not be denied, and nothing was left undone by the Committee of the Athenmum to make the affair a success financially and otherwise. In spite of all this, how .ever, the "beggarly array of empty benches" was depressing to the spirits of both performers and audience, and was a very poor compliment to the amateur Thespians, who unselfishly came from a rival township, and gene rously gave their talented services, not for their own benefit or that of their district in any way, but for the benefit of the funds of a building, which, altho...

No one will borrow it, nnot even at the reduced rates of inte rest. He has kept it so long that it has become blue mouhly for the want of using, and at the same time be would have us believe that he had sent all his money to New South Wales for investment ; but it appears that he had it hoarded here all the time. It is quite refreshing to read the doleful ?peeches th.it are indulged in at the half-yearly meetings of monetary in stitutions. At one of these meetings, the shareholders were exhorted to stir themselres a bit in looking up seeu rities for the bank's funds, as there had been a great lack of borrowers lately. At another meeting the chair man complains that they have so much mouney that they do not know what to do with it. Poor beggars! how I pity them.

ODD TESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 24 February 1881

ODD TESTS. Taste and try before you by, is a very wise rule, if it could only be followed; but in this world most things mitst be taken on trust : infalliule tests are as rare as infallible remedies. It was the custom among the ŽNestorian Christan., imme diately upon the conclusion of the mar riage ceremony, to carry the newlv.made wife to the house of hernusuand's parents, and place an infant in her arms, and three sets of baby clothes before her. If she succeeded in dressing and undressing the baby three times to the satisfaction of the critical matrons there assembled, well and good; but if she failed, she was sent to her old home again, to stay there, a wife and no wife, until able to face and pass a second trial. Sakti Kumara, the hero of a curious Hindustani story, preferred testing a damsel's capability before tying tihe knot. Master of a prosperous and profitable business, he came to the conclu-ion that a wife was wanted to complete his happi ness, and determined to go in se...

It is said that sometimes, like apprentices in all ages, theiy felt that they had long work alad shorlt rations. At one time a new cheese was put on the table whole. Itstood uncuntfor a dany or two, Hayes saying at each' meal, "' That is a nice.lookingcheese. It is a pity tocut it." The boys thought this was growing rather monotonous, and planned hose to show their sentiments. So one day when the black smnith had got a bar of iron nicely hleated, and laid it across the anvil to be cut into proper lengths, the boys stood ready, with chisels and sledges, to cut it off, but no hand was raised. Hayes asked why they dlid not " strike. " One of them replied, "That is such a nies bar of iron; it would he a pity to cut'it.
