HALF[?]A WIFE EACH. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 26 September 1884

HALF3A WIPE EACH. A novel case has arisen in the courts of Youngstown, Ohio. Two men filed petitions, in each case asking for a divorce from ¡ the same woman. Two weeks ago, Sam Thomas filed a petition praying for a sever- ance of the marital ties that unite him to Sarah A. Thomas, and alleging as a ground for granting the decree that the defendant had been guilty of adultery with one Albert Swager, and was now cohabiting with him. Albert Swager filed a petition alleging that he was married to the same woman mentioned above, in 1881, and that her husband, Sam Thomas was then living, though she falsely represented to him that she was a maiden and had never been mar- ried. Swager alleges that he only recently discovered that he had been imposed upon, and now asks an annulment of the marriage.

COLOURED MISSIONARY IN QUOD. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 26 September 1884

COLOUEED MISSIONARY IN QUOD. Rev. W. ' A. T. Smith says lie : has repented ; that he will turn over a new leaf and will labour for the conversion of his race. Hitherto he has laboured for the conversion of gullibility into cash, and he has met with great success. As a reward for his zeal he at present holds forth to select auditors in a cell of the county jail at New London, Conn. U.S. Mr. Smith is a coloured gentleman who has been running any number of bogus religious under- takings. The amount of his swindling assessments on the public ranged from half a crown np to twenty shillings per in- dividual, and as he was an industrious worker he must have gathered in the coin to a very considerable amount. Among his other benevolent schemes was one for the founding of a Home for aged Africans at Senegambia, and kind-hearted people who donated their funds will under- stand now why they have not yet received a lithograph of the institution, with the benevolent Smith sitting under a palm tr...

DISASTER IN THE ARCTIC SEAS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 26 September 1884

DISASTER IN THE ARCTIC SEAS. ^Information of a serions nature was received in Dundee on July 17, regarding the . safety of the crew of the Dandee whaler Chieftain, fishing off Greenland. On May 26, in lat. 68.85 N., a school of whales was sighted some miles off, and the weather being fine four boats went off in pursuit. One whale was speedily killed and towed by one boat to the ship. This boat then proceeded to the assistance of the other three boats, which by this time were fast to another whale. After killing it, the boats began towing it to the ship, five miles distant, bat had not proceeded far when a dense fog settled down, and the ship was lost sight of. Two boats went in search of the vessel, but returned after eight hours without success. The dead whale was then buoyed, and the four boats started to look for the ship. Two days were spent in vain search. Matters-were now getting serions, as provisions and water had run out, and a consultation was held. One boat's crew determi...

The Household. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 26 September 1884

The Household. Color taken out of dark colored goods witt acid may bo restored by the application of liquid ammonia. To clean painted walls mix whiting with water till os thick as paste ; apply with a flannel rag and wash off with warm water and a cloth. : A hall window may be made very pretty by pasting on it stainod glass paper, which can be purchased for a small sum of money and easily applied. ; Never wash in warm water before going ont in tho cold air. Snch a practice will roughen the skin. Warm water should be used only before retiring. To brighten the eyes for a ball or party, avery harmless device is to eat, a half hour before leaving home , a lump of sugar on which are ten drops of cologne. This generally proves effective. To whiten and soften the hands, rub them every night with a mixture made by melting together thoroughly ono half pound of mutton tallow, one ounce of camphor gum and one ounce of gly- cerine.

Woman Items. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 26 September 1884

Woman Items. A good-looking lass loves a good looking ! Bte* An English girl with 48 toes was born recently. She ought to make a good all-toe singer. "I drop into poetry occasionally," as the young lady remarked when she tumbled into the wastebasket. Spooning is regarded as Very silly, but after all it is the spoon that makes the greatest stir in the world. ? "Husband, if an honest man is God's noblest work, what is an honest woman ?"-"His rarest, dear." Thirty thousand women earn their living in driving and steering canal boats in South and Midland England. A treasure.-An English governess ad- vertising for a situation says that .she is a perfect mistress of her own tongue. At Norfolk Island, when a young couple marry, they get a free grant of 25 acres.

Scientific. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 26 September 1884

Scientific. The vapour of tobacco juice has been tested with success os an insect destroyer in hot-houses. The tobacco is soaked or boiled and placed in ai open dish overa fire or flame ot a lamp in the conserva- tory. Delicate plants are not injured as by tobaccc smoke; the atmosphere is offensive; thirps, scales and sings are effectually disposed of. One quart ol tobacco juice, evaporated in a house containing 35C cubic feet suffices. Several summonses against London tradesmen for having sold Swiss condensed milk oi various " brands," in a condition below that re- quired by the Act, were heard recently. The presiding magistrate inquired of the inspector under the Act, what " condensed milk " was. The in- spector said it was ordinary milk reduced by evaporation and with sugar added. In several cases fines of £5 and over were inflicted. Some curious investigations have been made by Dr. Richardson, the famous writer on the physiology of alcohol, showing that mortality from this subst...

THE WORLD'S FACTS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 26 September 1884

THE WORLD'S FACTS. In future no coloured men or boys are to be enlisted in the British Navy. "The British Museum has purchased the Bible which belonged to Milton. Nearly 1500 wealthy American tourists left New York for Europe in one week recently. The Bussian authorities are placing tele- phones in all the fortresses throughout that country. The coal area of Britaiu is 11,900 square miles ; that of Germany, 1770 miles ; and that of the United States, 95,200. In Utah, when a mau is found guilty of murder, he is allowed choice of death, and in four cases out of five the criminals choose being shot to being hanged. One of the provisions in thellife sentence imposed in Berlin on .Carl Sehenck, one of the trio of servant girl murderers, , is that on every anni- versary of the killing of each of his victims he is to be confined for that day in a dark cell.

TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 26 September 1884

TOPICS OF THE DAY. : -- ».-. ' The cables from Europe show that both France and England are committed to troublesome work in the East. The disin- clination of the recent conference on Egyptian affairs to. interfere in the work which England, at the outset, had entered upon without consulting the general inter- est, leaves to England the impossible work of choking the National aspirations of a people. The real meaning of the Egyptian movement is not a demonstration against England, but against the whole of the robbers of Europe, the bondholders, whose interest upon interest drains the country of all vital resources. And it is in particular a demonstration against the debauching mis- rule of Turkey, which draws from Egypt immense revenue to support its tottering throne in Europe. It is to stifle this work that England was forced into the shameful bombardment of Alexandria, and however much Gladstone sees the mistake now, it is only to In'H this national sentiment that British arms are...

OPEN COLUMN. NATIVE MURDERERS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 26 September 1884

OPEN COLUMN. -? LETTERS to the Editor most be conched in respectful" and simple language and as concise as possible. In every case thc writer's name is required, not necessarily for publication, but as a guarantee of good, faith.] ' NATIVE MURDERERS. To THE EDITOR. DEAS SIB,-I think I may safely say that the outrage which has just been Îrepetrated by the aboriginals on the Daly [iver, and which has resulted in the death of four Europeans, and the wounding of another, has sent a thrill of horror and dis- gust throughout the entire length and breadth of the colony. AU the evidence that we have been abie to gather concern- ing the massacre tends to prove that it was an uncalled for cold-blooded premeditated attack, in which there is not an atom of extenuating circumstances. From all that can be gathered, the natives who com- mitted these horrible murders had been treated during their visit to the station with every consideration. As this is only another case added to the long list of n...

Sporting Mems. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 26 September 1884

Sporting Mems. Very fast work is being done on the Hawkesbury Coarse. Five days before the match, Beach turned the scales at 12st. Martini-Henry has been successfully blistered for a ringbone. . First Demon has been turned out for six months, owing to soreness in training. Charcoal won the Adelaide Grand National Hurdle, and Abbot the Steeple. Baynor and Livingstone are matched for a 20 mile mn, at Newcastle, August 16, for £50. Herbert A. Slade is on the road in America with a big combination. Slade is eager to box Sullivan 4 rounds.

CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 26 September 1884

CRICKET. THE match, Palmerston v. Southport, which had been talked of in cricketing circles for some weeks back, was duly played at Southport on Wednesday, the 24th. The N. T. Lightering Company's launch Zulieka had been chartered to convey " our boys " to the scene of battle, and a start was made from Gulnare Jetty at about-half-past six, the vessel arriving at Southport at 10 a.in. As everyone predicted, the game resulted in an easy win for Palmerston, their opponents being unable to withstand the excellent bowling of Pattie and Linton, and to trundle sufficiently well to check the big scoring of McDonald, Linton, and Pattie, all three of whom it will be seen by the scores got well up in double figures. The visiting side played with one man short, and placing this along- side the fact that it was not by any means the strongest team we could have sent, it is safe to presume that if we had picked a crack eleven the game would be going on still with Palmerston at the wickets. Our Sou...

WHOLESALE MURDERS. TION AND EXECUTION. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 26 September 1884

WHOLESALE MURDERS.-CONVIC TION AND EXECUTION. In Vienna, Jane 0, before the Exceptional Court, the trial of Hermann Stellmacher, one of the two murderers of Police-detective Bloech, and, as sup- posed, one of the perpetrators of the robbery and murder of the money-changer Fisert and his two children, began. The Anarchist Kammerer awaits his trial before the Military Court, he being a soldier on leave. The prisoner Stellmacher is the mys- terious man who was caught in flagrante as the detective's murderer. He obstinately refused to give his name or address, and his photograph was for weeks exhibed in the shop windows in the Graben, the Karnthnerstrasse, and other most fre- quented places. Beproductions of this photograph were published by the illustrated papers in Vienna and elsewhere, and naturally photographs were also freely sent to the police head-quarters all over Europe. At last the suspicion expressed by the police in Dresden, five days after the murder in Floridsdorf, was pro...

EXECUTIONS IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 26 September 1884

¡ EXECUTIONS IN ENGLAND. The return moved for in tbe House of Commons, by Sir Joseph Pease, of persons sentenced during the three years ending December 81, 1883, to the punishment of death for the crime of morder in England and Wales is now published. During that period sixty-nine persons were sentenced to death; seven of .these were women, of whom one was hanged, five received penal servitude for life, and the seventh for ten years ; five were boys not over twenty years of age, and pf these four were hanged, and the other was found to be a lunatic and sent to Broadmoor. The remaining fifty-seven were grown men ; thirty-five of these were hanged, including an old man of seventy ; seventeen received penal servitude for life, and the other five were sent to Broadmoor. -Not a single case of pardon is recorded, which speaks well , for the care with which judges have done their work. On the other hand, it is a grave question, whether out of sixty-three sentences of death, leaving out the...

RAMPANT SUPERSTITION. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 26 September 1884

RAMPANT SUPERSTITION. Bight here, in New York, says an American sientífic paper, in the nineteenth century, in an age of intelligence and common sense, there is a man who tried to heal the broken arm of his six-year-boy by prayer and laying on of hands. He is a clergyman and con- tinued his praying and laying on of hands for three days without producing any effect, When the child's mother, unable to any longer witness the sufferings of her little one, told a friend, who reported the case to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, and the father, when threatened with arrest, secured the services of a physician. Such things seem almost in crebible in a country where there are common schools, libraries and newspapers, but then superstition is almost as hard to stamp out as the teeth of Cadmus.

SUICIDE.—SAD BUT SCIENTIFIC. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 26 September 1884

SUICIDE.-SAD BUT SCIENTIFIC. An inquest was recently held in London on the body of a suicide named Richard Bayley. The deceased's daughter deposed to finding him dead on his bed, and a letter that he had written lying on the mantelpiece. About a week previously he was discharged from his employment, where he had been for thirty-seven years. Witness found a pan of charcoal in the fireplace, and when she went up to the room the door was fastened. The letter written by deceased was as follows :-" This is a hard job to accomplish, and I am sorry I should have to do it. Having been with Mr Chidley thirty-seven years, I should have a hard job to get another place-in fact, I don't suppose anyone would employ me, and it won't pay to be walking about the streets, so I think it best to clear out. Life is not worth living, and I can't, see what I have got to live for. There is no doubt this will give you all some trouble, but you must make the best of a bad job.

LATEST NEWS BY THE MAIL. COMMUNISM IN BUSINESS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 26 September 1884

LATEST NEWS BY THE MAIL. COMMUNISM IN BUSINESS. A very useful handbook, dealing with both the historical and practical features of Co-operation has just been issued in London by Cassell and Co. It does not overlook the great trading associations working on part of the principle, like the Army and Navy and Civil Service Stores ; but their figures are omitted from the returns, the object being to show what the working men of Great Britain have done. At the present time there are in existence 1,197 retail societies, two wholesale and five federal corn mills, thc united sales amounting to over £25,000,000. The total business done by these societies in the last twenty years is estimated at about 250 millions, and the net profits at 20 millions, nearly the whole of which has gone into the pockets of the working classes. Co-oper- ative production has proved a subject of much greater difficulty, statistics snowing that no fewer than 224 societies formed with this object, and registered unde...
