' Spare a copper, sir, and (_iod will bless you.' Struck with the fellow's manner and ap pearance, the gentleman stopped and said : mf' You look as if you had seen better days. If you will tell me. candidly what has been your greatest failing through life, I'll give you enough to pay your lodging.' X III I11IUIU J.

Crucified Alive. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 8 August 1891

Crucified Ali^a. Is the King of Dahomey's country in Africa that worthy has a way not altogether pleasant of dealing with those incurring his ire, says an exchange. After his defeat at Kotohou he relieved his feelings liy an expedition against a tribo called the Egbas and took several thousand prisoners. A traveller writes of their fate that when within about five miles of Altouiey he wrs shocked by the spectacle of a living man tied to a cross near thn side of the path pursued by him and his escort. The poor wretch was, it is true, alive, but not far from dead. His face was swollen by the sting of insects, and his whole body was scarred by their bites. The cross was of rough-hewn wood, and in shape similar to that known to every Christian. The victim was tied tightly with a rop« made of a vine I which grows thickly in the Dahomey forests. [ The rope sank deep into the flesh and he was utterly unable to help himself. The lower I portion of the body indicated that some wild J animolj...

Two young girls who were considered bright scholars in the high school were looking over a birthday hook, in which are arrunged, alphabetically, a handsome, illuminated let ter forming the heading of each page. ' I wonder,' said one of the giils, ' if there are as many pages as there are letters in the alphabet, or whether there are some duplicities? Count the pages a«d see Maud.'1 Maud turned the leaves rapidly, and an nounced, 'There are no duplicates; only thirty pages, as there are le.ttrrs !' ' Why, you goose !' said Alice.

Forgotten and Starred. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 8 August 1891

Forgotten and Starved. At a Bohemian village, near Troppau, a deaf and dumb man, who sometimes caused public scandal, was locked up at the police prison on Corpus Domini Day, the 28th of May, when it was feared he might disturb the public procession. He was absolutely forgotten, and, as he had no friends, nobody missed him. On June 15 another man was to be licked up, and when the prison was opened it was found that the poor deaf and dumb creature had died from starvation. The body had been shockingly mutilated by rats, vury little of the flesh being left.
