The Angling Apes of Java. An Old Traveller's Story of the Monkey and His Crab Dinner. M "onaeys abound in the Island of Java," said an old EPstein traveller, "for shooting them is looked upon as the worst kind of vandalism, and they-do little damage, rarely injuring the crops on the farms, and living chie!?y.on wild fruits. There is, however, a species of large ape there that is not wholly a vegetarian. He is about the size of a small chimpanzee, and when full grown his dark face is encircled with a buosby white beard and whiskers, givingit a whimeical en. pression. He is not at all wild, and he seems to have some idea of practical joking, which leads him occasionally to descend to the lower boughs of a high tree in the even', ing and hold out his paw, in apparent friendliness, to any one who happens to be near. A person who is not familiar with the queer brute's tricks is apt to suppose that the monkey desires to shake his hand. and goes under the tree for the purpose of meeting th...

THE DEPOSITIONS. The followinig depositions were taken before consciousness departed : — Hughes' Creek, 24th June, 1892. I, Anthony Doherty, of Hughes' Creek, on oath saith that on the 24th day of June, 1892, about four o'clock in the afternoon, I was wiring my log fence on the road side, running through my property, at the North side of Hughes' Creek. John Norris came along the road to where I was working. He said to my son, Michael Doherty, " You have fenced across the road." In reply I said, " Yes, but put a gate on the road as the shire council directed." He said " I will cut down the fence." I said "All right, but would it not be better for you to ask the shire council permission to do so." He said " You b——. What right have you to   fence across the road ?

Mr. A. Doherty, J.P., of Mangalore, Fatally Shot by a Neighbour. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 1 July 1892

Mr. A. Doherty, J.P., of Man- galore, Fatally Shot by a Neighbour. The news of the death of Mr. A. Doherty, J.P., from a gunshot wound inflicted at the hands of a neighbour named John Norris, caused a pulsation of grief that vibrated from end to end of the Goulburn Valley. Mr. Doherty was one of our earliest settlers, as he was also one of the most deservedly esteemed. In matters of local concern, he was ever foremost in working for the district's advancement, and his aid was never sought in vain for objects that appealed to the heart or brain. But the mode of Mr. Doherty's death was, if possible, even sadder than the actual demise. For some years past a disagreement has existed between John   Norris and the deceased gentleman respecting the fencing in of a road by the latter. On Friday last deceased was in the vicinity of the fence indi- cated with his son Michael and a Mr. Moncrieff. Norris, who has a selec-   tion on Hughes' Creek, and who con- stitutes ...
