Some Popular Falacies. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 17 October 1884
Some Popular Falacies. ? It is a mistake to think that the mora a man eats, the fatter and stronger he will become. To believe that the more bonn children study the faster they will learn. To conclude that if exercise is good, the more violent it is the more good is done. To imag- ine that every boor taken from sleep ia j an hour gained. To act on the presumption .that.-the smallest room in the house is large enough to sleep in. To argue that whatever remedy causes one to feel immediately better is good for the system, ' without regard to more ulterior effects. To eat j without aa appetite, or to continue to eat: after it has been satisfied, merely to gratify the taste. ' To | eat. :» pearly .«upper for tim ^pleasure eif^enoed, during the brie! time it is passing down the throat, at the expense of a whole night of disturbed; sleep and a night of weary waking in the morning.. |V) : ;
TRAGEDY AT SHEFFIELD. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 17 October 1884
TRAGEDY AT SHEFFIELD. A hawker named Joseph Laycock, living in a court at Sheffield, and who only re- turned from gaol on Saturday, July 5, after serving a month's imprisonment, was found on Friday morning to have murdered his wife and four children. No movement of any of the family had been noticed by the neighbours since midnight, and on Friday morning one of them opened the door. A terrible sight presented itself. Behind the door was found Laycock's wife, quite dead, with her throat cut, and upstairs three children were lying on the bed, and one on .the floor in à naked state, also with their throats cut and quite dead. Laycock ?> him- self was found with a terrible gash across his throat, evidently self-inflicted. He was leaning behind the door upstairs, and was in a very, weak condition. The murders had apparently been committed in the night time, and Laycock, though still alive, had suffered from great loss of blood. He was taken to the West-street hospital. It. appears tha...

LATEST NEWS BY THE MAIL. WRECK OF THE LASTINGHAM TS . V COOK'S STRAITS. . ??Poll particulars of this fearful wreck are to hand by the New Zealand papers. A strange part of the affair is that had it not been for the utter confusion in the dread- fully stormy night nearly every one might have been saved. The few who were forward found that they could clamber on to the rocks hy means of the bowsprit, but none of them appears to have thought of going aft and informing the unfortunates who crawled the poop. The following is the account given hy the carpenter. He says :-r-" The weather on Monday night was very had indeed; there were very heavy squalls and exceedingly thick weather. Land was reported on the port bow about a quarter past 8 o'clock, and all hands were to stand by with their oilskins in case they . -were required. The land we saw was Jackson's Head, which was about four miles distant/ When the land was sighted, we cut adrift the foresail and made sail. After standing on about...

FOOD FOR LAND BILL FRAMERS (COMMUNICATED.) [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 17 October 1884
FOOD FOE LAND BILL FRAMERS (COMMUNICATED.) THERE is no denying the -well established theory that the framing of rules and \ regulations for the disposal of the lands of Australasia causes more trouble to , colonial politicians than any other feature of legislation with which they have to deal. Never an old parliament I dissolves and a new one is formed but that the Land Bill is one of the first (if not the first) questions that receive attention. Discrepancies (whether fancied or real), passed over by the old ! body, are picked out by the new and put to the test of a division. When I a clause suits the squatter, the free I selector is dissatisfied, and, on the other j hand, when the reading of an act par- ticularly pleases the selector, pastoralists complain loudly, and their represent I atives in parliament at once undertake the task of "reform." And so the Houses labour on, erasing portions of old clauses, and substituting according to their tenor of policy. Our own parliament of ...
GENERAL MISCELLANY. ONE MORE LOVE TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 17 October 1884
GENERAL MISCELLANY. ONE MOSE LOVE TRAGEDY. A SAD case of attempted murder and suicide happened recently at Prahran, in Victoria- The perpetrator of the double tragedy was a young baker named Beyer, and the victim of his enmity a young and attractive girl named Margaret Irwin, a domestic servant residing in the same locality. Beyer had for some time been cohabiting with Miss Irwin, but latterly she sought the attentions of another suitor in preference to those of her former lover. Beyer, becoming jealous, made up his mind to be revenged, and to conclusively settle all differences between bis sweet heart and himself. Arming himself with a revolver, he waited for his victim. They met on the footpath near his own home, and so far as is known, without giving Miss Irwin any notice of his purpose, he deliberately fired three shots at her. He aimed at her head, one of the shots took effect, and the girl fell to the ground. Seeing that his object so far was accom- plished, next turned the we...

The Wholesale ïVoït Business. Itifl a fact not very generally known, that one or two of the fruit export and import firms of Sydney do a business of between £70,000 and Je80,000 annually i On account of its situation, and also from the I character of its own soil and climate, the poriof Sydney is the great centre of the import'and export ; fruit business in Australia.
