A-RECENT OASB.:. The, following com meet by the Southern Cross (Melbourne)Dr. O'Haran and the. whole Roman Catbolip Church may. bo frankly congratulated ou . the result of the trial. A ,verdict against the. correspondent would have been h scandal 'of^the' bigho.it dimensions against tbe Church of. which ho' is.a dignatary. The case, of , course, still bristles with mysteries. Why the plaintiff in this case should have been , deprived of legal assistance, and, compelled to conduct his case in. person, is one such mystery. The. charge which deprived hitn, of; his solicitor in the first case—a.; charge which the jury rejected .without hearing the evi dence for.the.defence—is another mystery. Whether the letters which played ■ such . a part in the,second trial were, ,orc were-, not, forgeries, and how-they, came into., the hands of the counsel for the,defence, is-, an other mystery; and these mysteries, it may be added, are never .likc-ly to be solved.

Mr. G. Terry.. Luckily there were no-accidents.
The "Smoko" Sheep Shearing Machine. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 20 April 1901
"Smoko" Sheep Shearing Machine. Not many years buck the iiloa of sheaving sheep by machinery was laughed at ax a fanciful impossibility, but in this marvellous age of progress there seems to be almost no limit to the inventive genius of man, and now wo have move than half the entire sheep of this State stripped of their fleeces by the in genious shearing machine.
