To thank Mri.

ITEMhS. Wireos whoso husbands stay away from homne willnot find much comfort in the following from the Oveas and urliray Advertiser:-" A very.suddeon death occurred at Benalla on Wednos day morning, when the wife of a laborer named WV. Jones was found dead in her bed. The husband iam mediately reported the matter to the police, and a magisterial enquiry was hold by Mr. G Sharpe on the body in the afternoon, From the evidence, it seems that the deceased was out all night three nights ago seeking her husband, who failed to come home, since which time she has not been well, owing to the exposure. The medical testimony of Dr. Henry was to the effect that death was the result of syneopo; and the finding was made accordingly." Those persons who indulge in alcoholic stimulants at discretion may learn something from what Dr. Rad cliffe gives as his. opinion on the use of alcoholic liquors: Dr. Radcliffe stated, in giving evidence on the use of stimu lan ts at the meeting of a sub-committeo ...

THE LATE JUDGE STEPHEN. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 August 1881

TIUE LATE JUDGE STEPHEN. His Honor Mr. Justice Stephen, died somowh.it suddenly on Sunday morning, at his residence, at the cor nor of Victoria-parade and Gore-street. Last week the learned judge was per forming judicial work in the .equity court, and on Saturday heo was out driving. Having apparently recovered to some extent from the severe illness which compelled him to take an 18 months holiday in Europe in 1S77-79, 'it was generally hoped and believed that his Honor would hold his seat on the bench for some years to come, un troubled by the return of his former alarming ailment. The cause cf death was a wasting away of the sys tem, but the precise form of the disease to which this waste was due was never clearly ascertained, during his, Honor's lifetime. iMr. Justice Stephen, before his appointment to bench, was leader of the equity bar, and he took a prominent part as Attorney-General in the Francis Go vernment -in passing the Education Act now in operation in this colony.

NEWSPAPER SUBSCRIBERS LIABILITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 August 1881

NEWSPAPER SUBSCRIBERS' LIABILITIES. Judging from a recent case heard in the Small Debts Court, Mudgee, a great many newspaper subscribers are ignorant of the law bearing upon the subject. For their benefit we make the following extracts, which we com mend them to "read, mark, and learn:"-" Any person who takes a paper regularly from a post office, whether directed to his name or another's, or whether he has subscribed ornot, is responsible for the payment." "If a person orders his paper to be discontinued, he must pay all arrears, or the publisher may continue to send it until payment is made, and collect the whole amount, whether the paper is taken from the office or not. " The courts have decided that refusing to take newspapers and periodicals from the post office, or removing and leav ing them uncalled for, is prima facie evidence of, an intentional fraud." The Trade Protection Society sued sixteen of their subscribers for arrears of subscription to their paper. The defendants a...
