The Harmless Necessary "Cat." [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 29 June 1889
The Harmless Necessary ' Cat.' Mr. Funch has small sympathy with what he deems the false sentiment which denounces the use of tho lash — upon brutes — as brutalising. Means must be adapted to ends. The burglar and the ruffianly wife-beater would soem to have something in common with the immortal lady who didn't mind death, but coudn't stand pinohing. They don't seem, ettectivoiy, to mind tne risks oi their calling or the prospect of im prisonment; but they 'cannot stand' whipping. Whipping, therefore, sharp and painful without being physically injurious, would seem to be a promising deterrent, and, indeed, has proved so in the opinion of good judges. Now it is complained that the ' cat ' is cruel, because it seriously injures as well as pains. Very well, let that be amended. To lash a brute so violently that you have afterwards to cosset him up in a hospital cannot be either true human ity or sound policy. By all means dock the cat of certain of its nine tails if necessary, and lay ...

Quibble against Quibble. Some years ago, ^Frederick Reynolds, the dramatist, took a house at West minster, and bound huuself (as he thought) to paint tho insido once during the seven year's lease ; but in a subse quent covenant, which, if Reynolds read, he did not understand, there was so much technicality and ground for quibbling as to the exact poriod for commencing tho aforesaid colouring operation, that at the end of the first year, the landlord (a most litigious and vexatious attorney) brought an action for breach of contract, but which tho eccentric dramatist defeated by immo tliately painting the whole of tho in side of the house — black.

India-rubber Roads. Thehe is some probability of our having india-rubber roadways in the metropolis. Two German engineers have come over to consult with the authorities on the subject, and should the Country Council be agreeable, there is no reason why London horses should not soon enjoy the luxury of a soft and firm foothold, especially if they are shod with the shoe that is intersticed with india-rubber. — ' Court Journal.'

The Attitude of the Single Tax Party at the Late Election. TO THE EDITOR OF THE CUMBEELAND ARGUS. Sin, — Now that the election is over, the battle fought and the victory again fallen to the Freetraders of this great electorate, having once more setted down amongst us, who, but a few days ago, wero engaged in a most unseemly wrangle amongst ourselves, as to whether we were the most fit andproper persons to select our own candidate, though in doing so we might give some offence to a few Froefcrade generals who appointed themselves to the com mand of the party, without having been first asked for thoir services ; or, whether, it would not be much more patriotic to take the advice of those Sydney gentlemen, who knew far better how to tranact our affairs than we did ourselves. To me it seems a strange thing why we should waste our time and strength fighting over the opinions of men who had nothing whatever to do with the matter at all, and few if any of them had u vote to give. It was ur...
