LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS. Another Pest. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 30 April 1898
LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS. Another Pest. Mil. W. R. Wallace, of the Eding lnssie Irrigation Farm, reports that he is now receiving the attention of a pest in the shape of grasshoppers, which are making havoc amongst his vegetables. Cabbages, cauliflowers, and Swede turuips, are most affected, and all the green of the plants named is being eaten off, the stalks alone re maining as witnesses of the ravages of the pest. A local joker on hoaring the report, suggested as a good method of getting rid of the pest, that Mr. Wallace should get a quantity of rocksalt and distribute it over his land; the result would be that the grasshopper after licking the salt would visit the river to quench their thirst and instant death would follow. Next please.

The Commonwealth Bill. Having now liacl an opportunity of hearing speeches on both sides of the question, our readers will be in a better position than they were be fore to form a judgment on the merits of the Commonwealth Bill. Critics of the measure, we may re mark, have an obvious advautage in the debate in that they are not themselves required to formulate any alternative scheme. The bill that is on its trial is the Convention Bill and no other. They have a further advantage in. that the burden of proof undoubtedly rests on the ad vocates of the bill. They have to bIxow not only that it is a good and fair measure, but that it is sufficiently good to warrant New South Wales in abandoning her present inde pendence, and entering into an in dissoluble partne...

^mining of Criminals. Cases of Remarkable Ingenuity. I ran across my old friend Banks, the detective, a few days ago, and we chatted of our experiences. Banks had seen a great deal since I last met liiin. Apropos of bhe Burden robbery and other recent crimes that have baffled the police, our conversation turned on criminal ingenuity. My friend cited several instances which interested ine greatly. No doubr," said lie, " you remember tliat bold and ingenious robbery which occurred some three or four years ago in Brattle-square, Boston ?" " I do not recall it." I replied. "Well, it appears that Mr. Maynard, a jeweller, being at the time without a.clerk, was in the habit of locking up his store for about twenty minutes in the middle of the day while .he pro ceeded to a restaurant a few steps around the corner. One uoontime, just after he bad departed, there stopped in front of :his store a couple of men dressed .in the garb of window-cleaners. One carried a bucket of whitewash, and the ...
