A TRIP HEAVENWARD. m — ???— ' -v ? Here is the balloon ready. The men are just taking off the last of the bags of ballast which have been hooked on to the netting to keep the machine down during inflation. Already the little basket in which we are to spend the next hour or two is being attached by its few stout cords to the wuoden hood where all the strings of the netting concentrate. And now your aerial steed stands before you ready for the lray. The light breeze gently sways the amber like globe about its car, which is held fast to the ground by stalwart hands and by the weight of many sand-bags which have been piled into it. Now all is ready. Don't be nervous ! It is time to get into the car. The valve line is all right, ior we have looked up the open neck at the bottom of the gas-bag, and have seen it leading down from the valve at the very top. Now, then, every thing ready ? ' Let go !'

A DOUBLE LIFE. CHURCHWARDEN AND THIEF. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 28 February 1896
A DOUBLE LIFE. CHURCHWARDEN AND THIEF. That there are many hundreds of men in London living double lives is well known to the police. In their suburban homes they are estimable husbands, fathers, and citizens ; pillars of the church and philan thropists. In the city they may be coiners, ' fences' (i.e , receivers ot stolen property), street beggars (i most profitable vocation to a real artist), or burglars. It is com paratively easy to keep up such a deception in London, but iu provincial towns the game sounds an impossibility. That these things are, however, feasible seems to be shown by the story of a Birmingham fraud, n pawnbroker named Hart, who was the other day sentenced to five years' penal servitude. The local paper says : — Soon after he started business as a pawn broker at Birmingham he endeavored to make believe that his place had been visited bv burglars,wbo, he said, made a good haul. The place certainly had been entered, but by whom remained a mystery. Hart was agent f...
A CALIFORNIAN CAUSE CELEBRE. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 28 February 1896
A CALIFORNIAM CAUSE OELEBBE. The tenth anniversary of the famous Blythe case has just passed. For ten yeara old Blythe's millions have been in the - custody of the Oaliforniaa courts, waiting for the law to decide to whom the great prize shall go. For seven years of that time it has been certain that old Blythe'a only child, Florence, would wiD, but delav has followed delay, and several years more wiil pass before sha can come out of the very modest surroundings in which she now lives and be one of the richest women in the United States. . When she began her suit her grandfather was her guardian, her mother was alive, and she was a child of 12' years. Her mother and grand father are dead. Few of the original lawyers in the case are still alive. And she herself is a married woman, tho wife of Fred. Hinkley of Oakland. Blythe's real name, as it was proved ia the California courts, was not Thomas Blythe, but Thomas Williams. He. ,waa born m Wales in 1822. He sailed from Liverpool in 18...

LITERATURE. THE PET MEANNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 28 February 1896
. LITERATURE. THE PET MEAMMESS. It is a very curious thitg that everybody, nearly, has a rooted aversion to giving away some one thing. .No matter how generous the man or the woman may be, in this one thing he or she is a miser. Baron James Rothschild did not in the least mind giving thousands of dollars to a hospital, tens of thousands in dozens of directions j but when it came to stamps, the great financier, it id said, could not bear to pay the postage on his private letters, but would send them at the expense of the firm. With 'Madame Chere Mere,' in one of Frederika Bremer's charming stories, it was lace. She could give her children houses and lands, and to yield them fields and farms did not cause her a pang ; but when it became a question of duchess 'poiat' she confessed that nothing could be more painful than to part from the least bit of it. - Oae of the richest women in America hoards matches a3 if they were so many wands studded with diamonds.

DOCTOR'S BLUNDER. CHAPTER I. . g I write this story on one condition— that E my name is not published. It is a chapter E — a terrible chapter — of autobiography.

ALIEN HAWKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 28 February 1896
ALIEN HAWKERS. It appears that under the la\y as it exists there U no power to refuse licenses to Asiatic or any other hawker?, provided their good character is certified to by two respectable inhabitants of the district within which the license is to be in force. This jb in accordance with the provisions of the Hawkers Act. Speaking in refer ence to this matter, Mr. Gould, the Mioist^ far Justice, Bftid thftfc it' it; U thought desirable to refuse licenses to Asiatics it would be necessary 16 pass fresh legislation* either ia the 'direction, of preventing them from coming into the colony or in the direction of debarring them when in the colony from taking out hawkers' licenses. Mr. Gould commuti eafced sometime ago with the bench of magistrates, suggesting that it might be well for them to meet together and agree to some uniform course of action ia re gard to the applications of Asiatics for hawkers' licenses. As the result it was decided by the Bench that careful inquiry should be...
DISEASED MEAT PROSECUTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 28 February 1896
DISEASED MEAT PROSECUTIONS. Convictions were obtained and fines inflicted in certain diseased meat prose cutions recently ia cases where although the cattle when slaughtered were shown to be diseased ifc-.wai impossible while the beasts were alive by any reasonable pre cautions to have ascertained this tact. The Minister of Justice now sfates that he regard* cases of that character as those in which he is required, by virtue of his office, to recommend such remissions as may obviate the harah operation of the law. Mr. GouLi is fully alive to the very grave importance of preventing the sale of diseased cattle; but at the same time he recognises the fact that the law does not compel people to do impossibilities, and it would be extremely harsh to punish persons severely foe an offence committed without their knowledge, and after having taken every reasonable pre caution to avoid the commission of such offences.
AN APPEAL TO A THIEF. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 28 February 1896
AN APPEAL TO A THIEF. The following paragraph, taken from the Barrier Miner (Broken Hill), ought to have some effect on the sympathetic feelings of the enterprising thief :— On Saturday the robbery of a basket contain ing a considerable sum of money and other valuables, the property of Mi--s Petrie, was reported in the Miner. This theft is a particularly cruel one— so cruel that Miss Petria thinks that if the facts were known the robber or robbers would feel disposed to return the papers and jewellery, and possibly some of the money. The sufferer is an elderly lady, whose little savings for many years were in cluded ia the money how taken from her. But the loss of the jewellery and papers is felt even more keenly. These papers are not of any value to anyone but Miss Petrie; to replace them will cost her more tban she can afford. The jewellery is for the greater part relics and heir looms. The sufferer herself is, on. account of her loss, so serious to her in the cir cumstance', now ...
LIGHT-WEIGHT BREAD. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 28 February 1896
LIGHT-WEIGHT BREAD. In reference to the recent prosecutions of certain bakers for hav.ng light-weight bread in their posse? sion, penalties wery inflicted in several eases amounting in the aggregate to a very heavy sum, in one instance to no less than £L41 10s., for a deficiency in due weight of 566oz. It is explained that no discretion is allowed to the bench of magistrates in dealing with these cases, as the law requires the iofl :- tiou of a penalty of 5s for each ounce defi ciency. The consequence is that applica tions are from time to time made to the Minister for Justice for partial remission of these penalties. This Mr. Gould saysia another instance of arbitrary law which requires from time to time, according to the circumstances, recommendations for mitigation of penalties. In the Bread Bill introduced into Parlimeut last ses sion (but which was not proceeded with owing to the opposition it encountered), provision was made in one of the clauses leaving the amount of penalty ...
FOUND DEAD. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 28 February 1896
FOUND DEAD. The Wilcannia poli. e received informa tion on Wednesday to the effect that the bodies of two men had been found by the manager of Wan-amanta sta-ion on Nundjora rua. From papers found in possession of deceased iha bodies are supposed to be those of a man named M'Donald, an engi::e-fitter, and S. Green, a shearer. The men wero making their way towards Gnalta, where they had baen promised employment, and they perished ia open country. Both bodies were ljiug close together, and were divested of a'most all clothing. They had either perished from thirst or were vieti ns to the intense heat, and had probably baen dead about three weeks. An inquest was not deemed n^ceseary, and the police buried the boJies wheie they were fou'jd.
NARROW ESCAPE. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 28 February 1896
NARROW ESCAPE. Mr. John Ferguson, of Boomahnoo moonah, a young man about 20 years of age, met recently with an accident which might have had a fatal teFmination. He and two others bad felled a tree for the purpose of obtaining honey, and one of the party, Mr. Alex. M'Pherson, was busily engaged cutting into the prostrate trunk, when young Ferguson, ia trying to get a look iato the ho:low of the tree, brought the side of his head within range of the axe, and received a terrible cut, which rendered him insensible, and thoroughly frightened his . companions, who thought he was mortally wouuded. No time wis lost ia procuring assistance, and the wounded youth was quickly con veyed to Miss Nixon's, Yarrawonga, where he was attended by Dr. Denis; and is now in a fair way to complete rec ivery. Fortunately the axe used was an old one, rather blunt, and ia consequence did not penetrate the skull.
