The bridges are a credit to the contractors, Messrs Thompson and Powell. They are extra strong and will last for a great number of years.

SURE PROOF. The maiden asked-"Can you make me beautiful?" "For five shillings,." said the witch, "I can make you so beautiful that all the men will turn to stare at you as you pass."

"For fifteen shillings-and only at that price," said the witch, "I can make you so beautiful that you will not have a woman friend in the worll.. "Ah," cried the maiden rapturous ly; "that will be beautiful indeed.."

SUFFRAGE DEMONSTRATION. FIASCO IN PARIS.

THEFTS FROM THE STORES. LAPSES OF A PEERESS. CASES OF "BRAIN STORMS." [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 10 July 1914
THEFTS FROM THE STORES. LAPSES OF A PEERESS. CASES OF "BRAIN STORMS." Recent cases in England have called attention to the prevalence of stealing from shop counters, which goes .on among well-to-do and "respectable" people. It is one of ,the most per plexing of the lesser problems with whcich 'the management of a shop, es pecially of the large store with many departments, has to deal. What the financial value of the articles s blen amounts to in the-. course of the year no large establishment can say with any certainty; but each of these has on the average roughly about one case of detected theft a day. At Christmas, when the raemp ation and the appar ent chances of immunity from detec tion are greater, one shop has caught as many as 40 pilferers in a single day; but what proportion :hose who are caught bear to those who successfully get away with their plunder no one can approximately guess. -Nor is there any limit to the curious forms in which the frailty manifests itself. A certa...

APACHES "ROUNDED UP." NIGHT SCENE IN PARIS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 10 July 1914
' APACHES "ROUNDED UP." NIGHT SCENE IN PARIS. Passengers coming back late from the outer boulevards of Paris one night recently found a strange group assembled under lie arches, near the Chapolle station. Some thirty or forty serious-looking citizens, mixed with rowdy navvies and mud-spattered cyc lists were respec.ully listening to what might have been a sermon, deliv ered, however, in too low a voice to reach the outsider. It was half-past one in the morning-an hour a which it is not considered very healthy to linger near the arches of the viaduct of La Ohapelle, and certainly most of the passers-by looked askance ac the somewhat sinister assembly which was really nothing else than a band of "plain clothes" and disguised police preparing for a raid. All this neighborhood is infected with dangerous criminals, and attacks upon solitary fcot-passengers have been so frequent lately that the police had de cided to heat up the boulevard and ar rest all upon who im forbidden arms might b...
