MICKEY FINN'S RIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 5 November 1887

ý MX"' OKEYL7,Pi11NN's)I The warm south wind had coaxed Tinds. ley's woods into putting on their new spring suit. Brown robins tripped brisklythrou?hn the springing green places in StumpyField.; Mickey Finn's tame cow sat on the fence and kept a watch' ul eye on the circling hawk, who had felonious designs on Mrs. Doolan's bantams, A venturesome frog came out of the mud on the margin of Brown's pond and tried to sing a solo; surprised ' at the dismal croak that came from his thiroat, 'he concluded that he :was not fitted for solo singing, and went back'iinto the mud; to wait until the chorus 'began work in June. ': Mickey Finn had grown rapidly.during the winter. He was broader shouldefrd -aid deeper chested, and he began to put away, childish things. A preception of the con ventions of society was beginning to dawn onihim. He began to ask himself whether there was any virtue in ai paper collar.: But then there would be too manifest an' incon gruity between a paper collar. and a red...

Novelist.       DAYS OF CRIME AND YEARS OF SUFFERING AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY. --------♦-------- Reprinted from "The Australasian" of 1867 by special permission.) CHAPTER XXV.—(Continued) UNAVAILING ESCAPES. After a week's remand I was fully com- mitted for trial for horse-stealing. To Melbourne Gaol I was then taken. It was Saturday afternoon when I arrived, and thus I was locked up until Monday morning in my cell, without having been favored with an introduction to the celeb- rities of the place. When at length I was admitted into the yard, I very soon ascertained that there was scarcely a "professor" of appropria-   tive science in the place. There was some fifty amateurs, eight under sentence or awaiting the opinion of twelve respect- able gentlemen as to their moral qualifica- tions for a fellowship. The only celebrity in the establishment was, singular to say, a shipmate of my own. He was a dis- tinguished member of his profession, a...

The Pump.--There is the familiar pumI who makes it the business of hisAr her life to rout out every disagreeable circumstance connected with every family and retail them 'around the neighborhood. People speak of -him or :er`as -" knowiitniv erythirig,"" blit this supreme knowledge is only gained by the greatest perseverance and systematical pumping.

The Leader. JUSTICE TO ALL. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 1887. NOTES AND COMMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 12 November 1887

JUSTICE TO ALL. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 1887. NOTES AND COMMENTS. WE are pleased to see that our old friend Mr. David Abbott is back again after a 14,000 miles ramble safe and sound. He has arrived, too, at a critical juncture, and is now, in response to an influentially signed requisition, in the field as a candidate for a seat in the Moorabbin Council for the West Riding. Mr. Abbott's fitness for the position is unquestionable and will no doubt be duly recognised by the ratepayers. He, like Mi-. C. H. Hearle, is a staunch opponent of the "going concern' business. It seems a pity that a triangular duel should be fought at a time when the contest should be narrowed sharply down to two aides.-Avictory:for MrjVail under the cir cumstances would be destitute of all public significance unless he polled mote than both his opponents together. TI.ERa has been a very rapid increase in the goods traffic at the North Brighton station, and there seems no signs of abate ment.. But 'the accommoda...

Ladies Column. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 12 November 1887

Where True Heroism Is.4-urthis rode into the dreadful and dark abjss for the sal vation of Rome. It was a deed for all time to applaud and for all-men-to -exult-over-Tn splendid'exlhibition of personal-daring andif -patriotic sacrifice.- -: - . A good deal nearer to us in point of fact and time was the heroicfront of Nathan Hale, the gallant young martyr of the Aierican Revolution, whose last regret was that he had only one life to give to his country. Very properly we admire and celebrate these and--all heroic deeds; but there are other kinds of heroism of which little note is made, but which ought to move us to ad miration as fervid as that which the world has agreed to lay upon the altars whereon patriotism has immolated itself in the splen did moments of the world's history. Where, for example, shall we find loftier courage than that of the woman who goes into her own kitchen day after dayand week after week during the long-continued and wearing heat of summer, that those who ar...

At last her com panion made some inquiry about some in dividual named "Charley," and straightway 'her tongue wagged faster than ever. .We quarrelled a while ago," she said, "He told me once he did not smoke or drink and I believed him until a friend told me something which made me think he had deceived me." At this statement the commercial man gently smiled as he pretended to bury him self still deeper in his paper. "Yes," continued the young lady; "for over a. year I thought he didn't smoke or ,drink.

Twenty Dinners Lost.-The most tragic events will ..present., themselves,, to -the ordinary mind tinged with a certain personal application, sometimes very grotesque in its expression. On the occasion of a homicide which occurred at a.leading restaurant in San Francisco, this fact was somewhat amusingly illustrated. A customer passing at the window was addressed by!the alffale and polite Frenchwoman who presides over the receiving department. Pale as death, and evidently nearly prostrated by the shock ing event, she proceeddd, -with Gillic volubility, to relate-the harrowing details. lier auditor was quite imnprcssed with the sympathy exhibited, but his appreciation was slightly modilied by the concluding. re. mark.

CURIOSITIES OF SOUND AND VIBRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 12 November 1887

'ouit'f 'hir wii;s, arid though the chandelioer contained nine glass !hades,'the one im mediately in front of 'where the lady stood was the only one broken.
