SINGULAR MONOMANIAS. (NEW YORK CORRESPONDENT PITTSBURG POST.) [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 1 December 1888

SINGULAR MONOMANIAS. (NEW YORK CORRESPONDENT PIBTT UIr POST.) Among the inltances of singular mono manias which I have discovered is that of an important officer of a State Government of New England. His special delusion is that the other members of the family are insane, and are plotting to injure him, and that they ought to e put in au inslane asylum. Ho is an able and even celebrated lawyer, and conducts cases with marked effectiveness and success his briefs and arnuments show an unusual vigour and continuity of thought. Nobody knows of his mental condition outside of his own family and a few intimate friends, to whom they have said confidentially : " If any of us should disappear suddenly, look for us in an asylum." Another most curious case is that of a wealthy banker in New York city, who fancies that he is a ripe cherry that the birds are anxious to pick. He has a terror of all fruit. eating birds, and seldom walks or appears anywhere in the oaun air. He makes trips to mnd fr...

THE PRISON OF BOKHARA. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 1 December 1888

THE PRISON OF BOKHARA. STimhe.Time correspondent gives the following interesting account of his visit to this famnous prison:-"' Only the Russians know . how to pronounce the ' open sesame ' which discloses the Ameer's treasures and chamsbers of horror. By this last epithet I refer to the famous prison or zinl:un ainddungoon of torture to which we were very fortunate in gaining admittance. After a good deal of urging we were at last conducted to the spot by the djignits and ksaass of the Embassy. The guides rode on in front, clearing the way where necessary by a flourish of their short whips, and we followedon horsoeback behind, in the usual Eastern manner of progress. ThepoorBokhariots who can afford it genemrlly ride on ishaka or asses, the better oft on horses. By the way, why alt l Isak Khan, of Northern Afghanistan, i donkey, when lis real name, if I am not mistaken, is Isac Khan?

IMPERIAL UNITY. A BLENDED NATIONALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 1 December 1888

IMPERIAL UNITY. A BLENDED NATIONALITY. In a speech delivered at Haddington on 16th October, the Right'Hon. A. J. Balfour, Chief Secretary for Iroland; said:-- There are few arguments uisctln this Homd Rule controve whichl red-with less patlence thtnthat.whi finds in the ahctleitwrongs alleged to have beon done by England to Ireland a perennial source of hatred on the part. of England towards Ireland. Surely whatever weight that argu ment may have in other parts of the United Kingdom, it should have no weight with us who are Scotch men. For what is Scotch history? Scotch history for 'four centuries was a history of wrongs inflicted on Scotland by England. (Cheers.) All our great victories were victories over England, all our disastrous defeats were defeats by England. If it is true that while the whole of the rest of Europe during four centuries was rapidly advancing in wealth, civilisation, and prosperity, Scotland alone retrograded during the four centuries that pre. ceded the Unio...

THE LEADER. JUSTICE TO ALL. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1888. DISPOSAL OF REFUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 1 December 1888

THE LEADER. JUaTIO[ TO A~LL SATURDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1888. DISPOSAL OF REFUSE. Oun, mtnicipal' bodies have 'for it long time past had- snder consideration the query 'what. shall we: do 'with our excreta? At the ordinary fortnightly meeting of the St. Kilda Council it was suggested that it should be col lected into boats constructed for the purpose, towed down the Bay and emptied at some spot to be chosen be tween Drom:na and Schnapper Point. No doubt this would be better than the present system of. distributing it along the main thoroughfares, but we question - whether it is the best that could be adopted either from a sani tary or a utilitarian point of view. One oljection to the proposal is that it completely ignores the fact that in thus dealing with it we are wasting what under really scientific treatment would prove to be a very useful pro duct of considerable commercial as well as chemical value. What can be achieved by such a treatment (says the Age) is shown by the remarkable e...

THE RAG AND BOTTLE MAN AND MARINE STORE DEALER. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 1 December 1888

THE -RAG AND BOTTLE. MAN -AND MARINE STORE DEALER. (BY PIow?sEiR). Rag Alley is a small and cir cumscribed. place, forming a sort of. little world of its own. T I am not going to inform the reader as to its precise locality, for various reasons. If he is an inhabitant of MIelbourne, or for that reason its suburbs, and a person of observation, he will be at no loss to fix upon the site at once, and if he is not of course it can be of no importance to hinm to know where abouts rag and bottle alley is located. There are thousands of people pass by the narrow entrances to the alloy every day of their lives and yet know noth ing about it; for the entrance is small' and unpretentious, and so dirty withal, that it presents no attractions to the explorer. In fact it might be thought the very place for a receiver of stolen goods to set up his den. Once fairly within however, and tife prospect though of thd dingiest, is not wanting in the elements of life and activity. The dwellings are half ...

For the moment, Tom Bradford was obliged to give over speculating as to howho was over to got down from his dizzy perch, and devote iimself to nmeeting the danger which threatened him in the unexpected return of the infuriated aw-wolo-oo. The bird gave utterance to a ringing cry and then struck at him with both claws.. Tom had gobd cause to dread a blow from them, and skillfully dodged it by ducking his head and shoulders with such suddenness that the aw-wool-oo missed him altogether. She did not check her speed at the moment of striking, her intention having been to deliver her blow while under 'full sail,' as may be said. SShe, therefore, passed fifty feet beyond, circled about, and ascending far above him, poised herself an instant, as if she was going to drop'like a cannon-ball upon his head, as she was in the habit of doing when spea...

THE LATEST LAW OF STORMS. (LONDON TIMES.) [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 1 December 1888

THE LATEST LAW OF STORMS. (Loxnose TIRES.) . The Hon. R. Abreronmby submitted some modern views about hurricanes as compared with the older theories. - e said'that the old coniception of a hurricane was that .of a circular-shaped eddy, rdond which tloewind blew in circles; the whole system was not supposed to be connected with any surround ing trado wind or monsoon, and the idea that a hurricane changes its shape, as well as its depth and intensity, was never thought of. EModern research shows that a hurricane is really an oval eddy, and that the vortex, or centre of the wind rotation, is not in the geo metrical centre of the oval, but usually nearer one edge or other of the depression. Thowind blows as a spiral orvariable incurvaturre round. the vortex, not round the centre of the oval. The general sense of the rotation is counter clockwise in the northern, and clockwise in the southern hemisphere ; but the amount of in curvature varice in. different parts of the oval for a number ...

ANECDOTES OF PARSONS AND SERVICES. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 1 December 1888

ANEODOTES OF PARSONS.-AND . SERVICES. The ler. C. J. Langston contributes to .the Arqosy for October an amusing papcr, entitled " lp. and Mishap," in which there are a number of anecdotes of parsois, sermons, and chs?erh services. OLD-STLE PALS:ODY. A predecessor of mine prided himself upon Shis siagers. He was glad of the help of strangers, and would announce, after the second lesson, "I see some musical friends from Redditch have come in, so that we will have a anthem presmently." The custom then was to repeat lines and syllables ard al?twar; but often with ludicrous effect. Thus "Call down Sal" was thrice repeated before the full word salvation was reached; and the line, " Oh Thou to whom all creatures bow," was spuns out until it resembled bow-wow-wow-wow. Miss Charlotte longo alludes to the custom inl Chantry House:-" There was an outburst of bassoon, clarionet, and fiddle, and the perform ance that followed was thie most marvellous we had ever heard especially when the big but...
