CARUSO SINGS WITH OUT FEE. POST OFFICE CLERK'S IN GENIOUS TRICK. Clerks in a New York post office had the pleasure the other day of hearing Signor Caruso sing — and it cost them nothing. It happened in this wise. The famous tenor, who had just left the Metropolitan Opera House, wont to the post office, accom panied by a iriend, to taice out an insured letter containing a large sum of money, which had been sent to him from Europe. The official, however, notwith standing his protests, refused to hand over the packet to him. Caruso vainly exhibited enve lopes, cheques, and photographs ; the postal employee would not hear of it. 'Come again to morrow,' he said, coolly. ' But I am leaving the country to night,' exclaimed Caruso. ' I must have my money now !' The American official suddenly appeared to have been struck by a bright idea. ' You claim to be Caruso, do you? Well, then, you can easily prove it ; sing us something !' Taken aback at the . request, Signor Caruso hesitated one mome...

WHO WAS TO BLAME? [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 26 February 1910
WHO WAS TO BLAME? Not a few of the axemen who took part in the matches hold in connection with the Carnival at Hobarfc aro complaining very loudly of the way in which they were managed. Tho objection i3 that far too little time was allowed between tho events. It appears that the different competitions followed each other in quick succession, and the choppers had no opportunity, after finishing one event, of getting a ' rub down,' or, as one axeman put it, 'we didn't even get time to have a blow before wo were called on to got on the job again.' It is evident that the person who managed tho contests has never been engaged in a chopping match himself. There are few things that pro vide a greater test of endurance more particularly when the logs are of a substantial character, such as they wore in the present case; and it seems inexplicable, therefore, that so little consideration should have been I shown to the Carnival competitors. It prevents them from doing justice to themselves, a...
RED RUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 26 February 1910
RED' RUSSIA.. According to statistics published in the Russian newspapers there was a per ceptible cRTcTSSSe ^-number - of punishments for political offences last year. Tho figuros, however, are almost of necessity incomplete. The number of persona condemned to death in 1909 was 1435, as against 1959 in the preceding year, and the number of executions amounted to 543, as against 782 in 1903. Thero was thus a percep tible decrease in the application of capital punishment. The town ' of Ekaterinoslay stands first in the list of places distinguished in these tragic annals, 'with 205 death sentences and seventy-five executions. ? The number of persons deported to dis tant parts of tho Empire (chiefly to Siberia) by administrative order shows a still greater drop, amounting as it did to 2200 in 1909 as against 10,166 in 1908. The total number of political doporteos at the end of the year is officially estimated I at 13,969, as against 16,537 twelve months previously. The Press had to sus...
