Notes and Comments. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 14 June 1892

T golcK and d&ommflrfs. A new daily paper is about starting in Brisbane. It is to be on protection lines, M if we had not protection pure and simple in Queensland already. Mr. Spencer Browne, formerly editor of the Cooktown Independent, is to be the new editor at a salary of £600 a year. PASSENGERS' tickets on the Central Bail way are now punched at certain places on the line. The ticket collectors are not very expert just yet with the pliers, and the Com missioners might profitably engage the ser vices of a few ear-markers who can do their five thousand lambies per diem. A BRISBANE paper saye that there is a sign of improvement in the times when no fewer than nine marriages were celebrated in three weeks in one city church. The Strangest part of the whole matter is the happy couples invariably chose the bewitch ing nour of dusk for the ceremony. THE yield of potatoes in New Zea land last year was from ten to fifteen tons per acre. Fancy the delight of a New Zealander having...

GUILTY BUT NOT GUILTY. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 14 June 1892

GUILTY HUT NOT GUILTY. THE carrier Howard, who pleaded guilty to a charge of perjury preferred against him in connection with the. reccnt cases of interfer ence with the horses of non-union carriers at Isisford, and was remanded for sentence, has been released from gaol, the Crown Prosecutor having filed no true bill. This is a warning to persons never to plead guilty to anything. It reminds us of tlu> prisoner who was tried for larceny, and, in a speech to tlio jury, admitted his guilt. The jury, however, were BO pleased with the repentant tone assumed by the de fendant, that they acquitted him. In discharg ing the prisoner, His Honor said, " Upon your own admission you are a thief, and now the jury declare you are a liar. You are discharged."

SEVENTH MONTH. SEPTEMBER. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 14 June 1892

SEVENTH MONTH. SEPTEMBER. We did sot rest after this. Oar work went on bravely to completion. Might after night we walked the streets of Whitechapel, eager for victims, but cautious as well. We muBt not be captured or the work of ven geance would not be completed. Courte zans smiled upon us ; they little knew the feelings in our hearts towards them. At lost aDother came. Unsuspicious, eager to ply her trade, struck down while making her base bargain. Again the victim was found in a drinking den. She could drink ooeans of beer. I waited in the street while he managed her inside. It was quite light when they left the place-the light of early morning. She was leaning heavily on his arm. He gave me a look as lie passed me, and I kept out of sight. Up the street, around the corner to Hanbury street, through a court to the rear of some houses. I watched lest someone should interrupt. I could see them, I also noticed several windows were open in the surrounding neighborhood, but no one saw...

The Ladies Friend. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 14 June 1892

The Ladies Friend. FOB ladies of all ages, from the time of birth until old age, at all critical times, and during all constitutional changes which are peouliar to the sex, Clements Tonic surpasses all other preparations. During the critical period of youth it braces up the system, and has a beneficial, stimulating and permanent effect, on the several important organs and processes 'which govern the female economy, for weak, cachectic and annmio girls, with the usual pale lips, pasty skin, dark circles round the eyes, torturing headaches, and suppression of periodical functions, Clements Tonio is es pecially indicated. For married ladies it is as essential as the daily meals, for during the period of gestation there ib a great strain on the blood in supplying the necessary amount of material for the formation of the fastus, and unless the blood is sufficiently rich to afford this nourishment, the physical system must suffer and the necessary matter will be drawn from the bones and t...

THE BUNDABERG ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 14 June 1892

THE BUNDABERG ELECTION. THE election of a representative in the place of the late Mr. Walter Adams resulted in the labor candidate, Mr. Hall, being elected by 4o0 votes; Mr. huffy, the Government candi date, received 352 votes; Mr. W. E. Curtis 169, and Mr. George Skyring (independent) l4. The victory of the labor candidate was due, of course, to Mr. Curtis going in opposi tion to Mr. Duffy, who otherwise, it is reason able to supi>oop, have had a majority of 71 votes. The labor party hoisted Hall on their shoulders, and, preceded by Mr. Hoolan, M.L.A., and Gilbert Casey, paraded the streets with a brass band in front of tliuin.

Round [?] Came Fire [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 14 June 1892

THE next week saw the party at Musswell brook; the monkeys were all safely paddocked, and " The Boss" was elated because he had .old the lot at 8s. 6d. Mr. Parchment, a solicitor, went out to the camp, which was not to break up to the end oi the week, to make an agreement with the boss on behalf of a Sydney firm to drove a mob of cattle from the Gulf, and after the business had been trans acted a general chat ensued. Mr. Parch ment was relating some of his experiences in a bush town, which created roars of laughter; "But the best bit of fun I know of was with a money lender-one of those Jews who lend money on personal security from 20 per cent, upwards, rarely downwards. One of the interested parties was a relative of mine. I'll tell you about it." The Lawyer and the Money Lender. For the clever young fellow ho undoubtedly was, Jack Trumper had behaved very foolishly. Not content with living far beyond his income, which was small, he had seen fit to take to gambling. By that means h...

PAYMENT OF MEMBERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 14 June 1892

PAYMENT OF MEMBERS. AFTER Mr. llyau s remarks in the House con cerning the destitution of the unemployed, it was only natural that the most patriotic of the representatives should urge the abolition of payment of members. The member for the llarcoo did not suggest this, but Mr. Gannon did so and was cheered. Mr. Dickson next day placed a motion on the paper to consider the plan of retrenchment, but the Premier notified that it was the intention of the Gov ernment to bring in a bill to suspend or abol ish payment of legislators. If charity begins at home, retrenchment ought certainly to commence in the House.
