Kathleen Conner, police agent, is a young woman of prepossessing ap pearance. There are many people in Melbourne, however, for whom she has lost her charm. The majority of them are fortune-tellers and street "bookies." She visited Randolph Felton at his house in Lennox-street on April 12. The interview which followed was detailed by her in the court, when a charge of having imposed by subtle craft was preferred against Felton. When Felton was previously before the court on a similar charge, he made a long statement in which he claimed to be a student of nature psychology and much more. Saving his breath on this ccasion, he hand ed the bench a letter, in the course of which he stated that he was in financial difficulties. He had been ill, and his furniture had been seized. He had a child to support. Mr. H. T...

"Your wife won't open the door if 'you knock at this hour; she will never think of it being you," remark ed one councillor to another.

"The football colors, of course; you surely know there has been a call and that men are wanted." "Oh, that's all right; I thought you might have meant that men were wanted to fill the gaps in the ranks." "And they are, too, in the ranks of Richmond; the casualties so far have been tremendous, and though the se lection is made each week-end, not yet has the team filed out according to the blackboard in the training base." An imaginary conversation, you suggest. Oh, dear no; everything took place just according to catalogue, but "End of the first section!" yelled the conductor, and I left the car at Lennox-street. The conversationalists went further on. In these times it may be possible to fill a gap, but it is a more difficult i?:'t.ter to replace a blank. The foot ball game to-day is not the same high qualsity bag of potatoes that it used to Ie. The "eyes" have b...
