OPEN COLUMN. MR. MOULE AND THE CHINESE RESTRICTION MEMORIAL. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 July 1884
OPEN COLUMN. LETTERS to the Editor must he «ouched in respectful and simple language and as concise as possible. In every case thc writer's name is required, not necessarily for publication, but as a guarantee of good faith.] MR. MOULE AND THE CHINESE j RESTRICTION MEMORIAL. To THE EDITOB. SIB,-As there appears to he some slight misunderstanding with regard to the channel through which the above mentioned memorial reached the South Australian Government, I beg that you will, in fairness to the South Australian N. T. Association, give publicity to the Secretary's reply to me, which I forward you, and by which it will be seen that the memorial did bear thc endorsement of the Adelaide Association, leastwise I should consider so, as it was presented to the Minister for the Northern Terri- tory by a committee appointed by the Association, consisting of the Hon. L. Glyde, L. L. Furner, M.P., and Mr. J. G. Pitcher. Your explanation of the reason why it was not forwarded through the members...
PIGS AND OUR WATER SUPPLY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 July 1884
PIGS AND OUR WATER SUPPLY. TO THE EDITOR. SIR,-I think it is high time that some steps were taken to put a stop to the nuisance created by pigs which are at large in many of the upcountry dis- tricts. No doubt it would interfere with the interests of a few individuals who are making rather a good tiling out of pig-breeding, were they obliged to keep their stock within bounds, but I think it is always admissable that the interests of the majority take precedence of individuals. As nearly everyone knows, towards the end of the dry season the water gets scarce, and if what little there is is polluted by the wallowing of swine, it cannot l>e healthy j to drink. Trusting this will have the desired effect.-I am. sir. LIVER AXD BACON. The Reefs, 4th July.

A respectably dressed gentlernei took a seat in Hyde Park, and after writin the words, " I sat on this seat when a boy, walked a few paces away and shot himsel dead. Six men were suffocated at Newcastle under-Lynne about twelve months ago. Grea difficulty was experienced in finding and re covering the bodies. But a few weeks agi success attended the efforts of the searcl. party. Notwithstanding the lapse of time the bodies were easily identified. Lord St. Leonards was recently com mitted for trial by a London Bench for ai attempted criminal assault on a dornest» servant. He had been invited to a friend'! house the previous evening, and returning next day during their absence, attempted the offence alleged against him, using mucl violence in the act.

The Household. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 July 1884
The Household. A little powdered charcoal will cleanse and sweeten bottles if it is well shaken about in them. The leading London occnlists are again calling attention to the serious effects of applying poultices to the eyes and ears. Paint which has become dry and hard may be removed by rubbing the spot with oxalic acid diluted with water. Try a weak solution first, and if it does not remove the stain, increase the strength. Teach your wash woman to pull the collars crosswise and not lengthwise when starching them, and also when ironing them ; cuffs and shirt bosoms should also be stretched according to the same rule, and you will then find that the articles which seemed to fit perfectly will do so still after they have been laundried at home. Delicious fig-candy is made by boiling one pound of white sugar with one pint of water. When it hardens in cold water pour it over figs which you have split and placed on buttered plates. Just before you take the candy from the fire add a sma...

THOSE NAUGHTY BOBBIES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 July 1884
THOSE NAUGHTY BOBBIES. To TUB EDITOB. SIB,-I should like the. privilege of a small space in your columns to call attention to the eccentric pillacodies of some of the members of the " foorce." On occasions it might very truly l>e said of them as Bret Harte said of the "Heathen Chinee," that "for ways that are dark," «.fcc., ito. A little in- cident occurred a short time since with- in a hundred miles of the Twelve Mile which fully bears out what I remark. A " gentleman in blue " paid a visit of INSPECTION to a well-known hotel, and enjoyed the hospitality of the host to a considerable extent, so much so that on retiring to his virtuous roost Ju; fell into the anns of Morpheus fullv accoutred spurs, helmet, saber, receipt forms (in duplicate, ito., «fcc.) In the morning " bluey " called, for his account, and on being presented with a " memorandum of costs " to the simple time of 14s. for tins entire spree he raised an objection to what he called the exhorbitant charges of these " ...
CHINESE JOBBERY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 July 1884
CHINESE JOBBERY. TO THE EDITOR. DEAR SIR,-I want to know whether the Chinese contractors have been in the habit of using galvanised iron in their contracts of ten pounds less value than. the iron specified, the same as they are going to do at the upcountry hospital. They have made a start at that by land- ing their iron on thc site, and if it is accepted they receive a handicap of £150 over a European contractor. Yours, «fcc., ENQUIRER. [We cannot satisfy you as to whether this has been a customary practice of Chinese contractors or not ; but if what you say relating to the Hospital is cor rect,' the sooner the overseer (if he is not a Chinaman) steps on the scene the sooner will the swindle be burst up.

Farmer & Grazier. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 July 1884
Farmer & Grazier. Potatoes thrive on ashes. Carrots thrive only on a light rich soil. Sow parsnips early ; they grow slowly. Turnips should be thinned to 5in. apart. Cooked food hastens the production of eggs. Clover ploughed under gives grand aid to a crop. Cool soils grow potatoes the richest in flavour. . The best peach-trees grow in a gravelly loam soil. Draining pays in the long run and in the short run. Feed corn to hens at night ; softer food in the morning. Ashes on a wheat field increases the yield 25 to 55 per cent. Scalded milk will cure calves of scour, and not impair the digestion. Lime, added to barn-yard manure, will ensure a splendid crop of potatoes. Gigantic efforts are being made to develop the wine industry of France. Skim milk mixed with wheat bran, will ensure a constant return from poultry. The loss by fire in thc United States and Canada last year amounted to £21,000,000. You can ensure good health among fowls by hanging a cabbage so that they can pic...
A WIFE POISONS A HUSBAND. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 July 1884
A WIFE POISONS A HUSBAND. At Lincoln Assizes, on May 9, Mary Leffley, aged fifty-two, was charged with the murder of her husband, William Leffley, aged sixty, at Wrangle. The deceased was the i owner of a small freehold farm, upon which he and his wife lived. Latterly they had had frequent quarrels, and on February C the wife attended the Boston market, hav- ing previously made a rice pudding. After having eaten a portion of it, the husband was suddenly taken seriously ill, and, al- though medical aid was sought, he died the same evening. When the wife returned from market, upon. going hito the bedroom where the man was lying, and inquhing of him what was the matter, he replied, " you know, dear; don't let me see you again." Arsenic was, upon analysis, found in the pudding, and in the deceased's stomach suffi- cient to have killed 50 persons. The jury, after 40 minutes' deliberation, found the prisoner guilty, and sentence of death was passed. The woman protested her inno- cence.
WHY THE BASCALS WERE SHOT. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 July 1884
WHY THE BASCALS WEBE SHOT. The TIMES correspondent at Khartoum says :-" Last evening, before sunset, the two treacherous Pashas were shot, to the general delight. They had been patiently tried by a nulitary Court, which, after two days' deliberation, had found them guilty of being in communication with the enemy, of breaking the ranks and the square in the recent battle, and of cutting down ar,, officer and some gunners, with other murders. They took out with them 70 rounds of cannon ammunition, although eight is the usual number. In the honse of Hassan Pasha was discovered a great store of rifles and ammunition, and both Pashas had stolen the two months' pay given to the troops on account of the six months' arrear."
AN OVER-CAUTIOUS MURDERER. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 July 1884
AN OVER-CAUTIOUS MURDERER. A wife murderer has been tried at Tours The wife of a small farmer of Nazelles, named Gaucher, disappeared in July last. Public rumour accused the husband of having got rid of her, but he brought actions for de- famation against any person who openly accused him of the crime, and obtained damages. In January last a note was found in a shed, supposed to be written by the wife, stating that she was about to commit suicide, and that her husband must not be accused of her death ; almost at the same time a similar paper was found in an uninhabited house. - A little later the body of the woman was discovered at the bottom of an old dried up well, and by the side of it was a basket containing a long letter, in which she also said that she was committing suicide to relieve her husband of the burden she was to him. The man was arrested, and it was shown on the trial that all the three letters must have been written by him. The sup- posed motive for the crime was th...
AN ASSOCIATION OF MURDERERS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 18 July 1884
AN ASSOCIATION OP MURDERESS. A Berlin contemporary publishes some curious and startling information respecting a criminal association which has lately fallen into the hands of the Sicilian police, and the members of which, 104 in number, are to be tried for their lives at Palermo, during the first week in May. It would appear that on April 15, 1883, Signor Antonia Scordato, the mayor of a small town named Bagheria, situate a short distance from Palermo, accompanied some friends who had been visiting him-to the railway station at .a late hour of the evening. As the party was passing by a small wood abutting on the high road several shots were fired at it from the covert, and three of ther mayor's com- panions fell dead upon the ground. In the course of the researches instituted into this tragical occurence by the local authorities, suspicion fell upon four householders of Bagheria, who were accordingly arrested, and conveyed to Palmero, where they presently confessed themselves to be...
