CHAPTER IV. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 12 July 1904
CHAPTER IV. F Three weeks had passed since Mrs. Lucas had been- laid in her grave. Mabel and Hannah were established in some comfor table rooms which Mr. West had taken in Albert Square, Commercial Road. These rooms seemed quite palatial to Mabel, and a very haven of peace and rest, where she no longer heard the sharp, nagging on es of her aunt's voice angrily scolding her for some imaginary extravagance. But Mabel pos. sessed a gre %tful disposition, and no longer harboured harsh thoughts of the old woman, who, after all, had not forgotten her, but had left her the whole of her large fortune, to be at her absolute disposal when she attained the age of twenty-one. Among the paper in the old cardboard box Mr. West had discovered a few lines to Mabel, telling her to write to Sir Hugh Trenton, of Trenton Court, Devonshire, and claim relationship with the family, who might be of service to her some "day. The worthy' doctor, somewhat startled to find that he was guardian to a great heire...

As the game was in progress a stray our somehow got himself mixed up with the players. • A huge forward kicked the ball at the moment when the dog was in trot of ii. He sent both dog and ball high into the air. They cam' down together, and it was then seen that the lane of the football had become unfastened and twisted about the animal's tail. Wild with fright, the little beast sourried across the field, emitting a prolonged, ear-splitting howl as the ball bumped behind it. The terrified animal made straight for the gate where the constable on duty, in trying to capture it, lost his balance, and came igno miniously to the ground, admist roars of laughter. The dog continued its mad career through the streets, pursued by the team and a Crowd of others, until the ball at last became detached, when the players took possession of the leather, and, returning to the field resumed...

Ulcerated Neck for Two Years. A REMARKABLE OURE BY ZAM.BUK; " WHILE working at my trade of engine driving," says Mr. George Haigh, of New to*n Hnmilton, Newoastle, N. 8. W., "a steam pipo burst and soalded my neck severely. As the result of this, my neck all broke out in ulcerated and inflamed wounds, and caused me an immense amount of agony. I consulted a doctor--also pretty well all the ohemists in Newcastle-who prescribed d'ifferent lotions, which I applied but without gaining any material benefit. Some of the treatments would heal my'neck temporarily, but it would soon break out againu. For twnyears I thus suffered agony, during which period my neck was like raw meat. I could not bear to wear a collar, but always a soft muffler round my neck, and had great d;fltoulty in turning my head. I had oft n seen Zam-Buk advertised as a care for my trouble, and was often on the point of writ ing for a free sample as advertised but failed to do so, thinking that it would only be similar to...

JURISDICTION OF MAGISTRATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 12 July 1904
JURISDICTION OF MAGISTRATES. TEaUNIOAL points of a remarkable nature are sometimes raised in the course of a case where legal gentlemen oannot rely upon the merits, and a good illustration of ,his was furnished in Sydney on Wednesday before the Chief Justice. The defendant had been fined for an assault upon a child at Camperdown, and her attorney appealed on ,he ground that there was no evidence that. Camperdown was within the metropolitan police distriot, or in New South Wales. The Chief Justice in dismissing the appeal said that there would be a great failure of justice in criminal matters if such an objection was permitted to prevail, but fortunately the Justices Act provided that the jurisdiction of magistrates mnst be assumed until the contrary had been shown, and jurisdiction had not been ousted by appellant in the case before him,

The reporter says that there is a very strong feeling of resentment in the Qneanbeya_ electorate against the extravagance of the See-Waddell Government. The reporter also says-" I bad the benefit of a convers. tion with a level-headed man here who is conspicuously well placed to know both aides of the question all over the electorate. li confirmed the view I had already formed that Dr. Blackall is a distinctly harder man to beat than Mr. O'Sullivan would be. He then went further, and deolared that the Reform candidate must win, even with Mr. Fliggins in the running. In my opinion all the ciroumstanees point that way."

CARRIAGE ON STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 12 July 1904
CARRIAGE ON STO` K. A DEPUTATIOn r representing the Stock Boards' Council of Advice waited on the Railway Commissioners last week and asked that the regulations under which' a oncession is given on the rates for stook carried on the down journey at the convenience of the department might be made to apply to cases where the journey is partly in the. up and partly in the down direction. The commissionets stated that': this was not a new question, and they felt they could not comply with the request of the deputation The concession was based on the supposition that the stock was carried at the convenience of the department and was carried in direc. tions in which tracks would ctherwise be hauled empty, In practice the condition as to the convenience of the department very rarely applied, and the proviso as to the use of trucnoks which would otherwise be running ompty.would scarcely ever be applicable to a journey partly in the up and partly in the down direction. The deputation also as...

THE SLAVES REVENGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 12 July 1904
THE SLAVE S REVE?QE. "The stomach," says Touvestre, " is a slave which is obliged to accept everything imposed upon it ; but finally avenges its wrongs with the slyness and cruelty of a slave." The eminent French author has happily ex pressed an important physical fact. When one comes to reflect upon it, there is something unique and pitiable about the position of the stomach in the human body. Upon no other organ except the lungs can you impose anything from the outside world. And it is your interest as. well al your desire to draw into your lungs pure freshkir only.. And air in some form is the only thing the lungs receive. On the other hand, the stomach is a general receptacle, entirely at the mercy of its owner as to what shall be put into it, when, where, and how much. A man can throw into it any thing that can be swallowed-every variety of food, any sort of drink, any amount of both, up to the.bag's elastic capacity ; and, if he wants to, he can put a layer of marbles on top, ...
