The Gloves. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 24 October 1884

The Gloves. WHO never heard of " the night before Larry was stretched? ' We refer to Lorenzo de la Foley this time, and how Miller stretched him. After a bit of a fizz, and when every little joker that could put op ? bis hands had gone to take lessons from the boll necked punchers, and got hit in their little stomach too hard, public interest in boxing became centered in the battles of a few Melbourne boys, and we have had then in New South Wales plugging one another with one eye open to box, and the other blinking to the ticket taker to mind the door money. So box. ing has gone flat, and people think it won't corrie again. They don't think so in England and America. Here's from a high class .-English paper:- , " We once knew a celebrated fox-hunting parson much .beloved in his parish, who liked attending a prize-fight as well as-well a meeting of hounds. We well recollect his animated description of the great battle between Cribb and Molynenx, the black. (Mace took Slade the Maori ...

A YOUNG OFFENDER. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 24 October 1884

A YOUNG OFFENDER. On July 19, a boy named Charles Lubby, aged fourteen years, residing at Waits place, St. Pancras, went up to a police constable of the Y. division and said he wished to give himself up for having murdered his sister Mary Ann, and that he had done so by kicking her. The youth was taken to the Kentishtown police-sta- tion, aud there detained until Detective-in- spector Dodd and Serjeant Ottoway could make inquiries into his statement. The of- ficers investigation showed that the self accused had, during the day, quarrelled with his sister and kicked her, and she, being subject to fits, had, in consequence of his brutality been seized with a fit aud become insensible. The brother thinking' that she was dead, had left the house, and after some time gave himself up for having committed murder. The police ascertained that the sister whose aged 17 years, was not dead, and on their return to the police station, in consequence of the sister refusing to charge her brother wi...

GRIM PUN IN IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 24 October 1884

GRIM PUN IN IRELAND. .At Sligo assizes on Monday, Joly 13, Michael Muldowney, an ex-sub-constahle of the Boyal Irish Constabulary, was put on his trial for the second time for the murder of Peter Doherty, a boycotted farmer, living near Craughwell, county Galway, on the 2nd Nov., 1881. Doherty, it appeared, had taken a farm on an estate of Mr. Walter Burke, of Bahasson-park, which had been surrendered by a man named Cunliffe. Mr. Burke was himsel murdered, along with his military escort, in the same locality, some time afterwards. Doherty's action relative to the farm provoked a strong feeling of hostility towards him. A meeting was held in a field on his land, at which he was denounced. On the night of the 2nd November, 1881, while sitting in his house he heard his horse, which had been left in the stable, walking about the front yard. He went out, accompanied by his sister, and put the animal back, and was retaining to the house, when two volleys were fired at him from different p...

Political. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 24 October 1884

Political. Germany is annexing more territory on the coast of Africa. The French jealous. The Austrians are sending a representa- tive to ascertain what opening there is to push trade with Australia. The Czar is going to Warsaw to meet the two Emperors. What else he may meet, the Nihilists are quiet about. The Convention resolutions have been passed by the S.A. Parliament by a large majority. The new Parliament of New Zealand is about to discuss them. The contest now going on in Melbourne for a seat in the Upper House is a furious contest between an advertising doctor and another gentle- man. Money is being spent like water. The question of annexation is to be dinned into Lord Derby's ears once more by Murray Smith, the Victorian Agent-General. The grounds taken this time are the continued annexations now going ; on by Germana and Austrians. Anthony Hordern has been banquetted in West Australia. It will be remembered he or- ganised a Syndicate in London, which has obtained enormous ...

Wit & Humour. The burglar is a man of enter-prisê. Where do all the gray-haired spinsters go when they dye ? The new name for a baby show is a " congress of kids." Women will never do on the fire depart- ment, where they are compelled to expose along hose. The maiden's prayer : That she may make a mash before any of her female acquain- tances. Kate Field says : " There can be found no grand men without grand mothers." True, very true, Kate, and great grandmothers. The great 'events in the life of a Melbourne man are his first trousers, Lis first love, his first wife, his first baby and his List divorce. "No, Tm not drunk," said one of Lus- combe^ delegates, "but I've had a political breakfast-three deep-sinkers and a square bottle of rum." jones says the landlady afc his boarding- house acts real cold towards him, and he doesn't know of anything he has done except to ask for another " dose of pie."

Scientific. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 24 October 1884

Scientific. A Toolon physician saya thai cholera can be cared by the inhalation of pure oxygen. That settles the case of the unfortunate who live in the tenement house districts, where such a thing as pure oxygen is unknown. An early human skull has been found near Prague in a bed of chalk from which the tusk of et mammoth had been dug a few days previously. The skull has an extremely low forehead and a great development of the ridges. The fibre of silk is the longest continuous, fibre known. An ordinary cocoom of a well-fed silkworm will often reel 1,000 yards and reliable accounts are given by Count Dándolo of a'cocoon yielding 1,295 yards, or a fibre nearly three quarters pf a mile in length. The employment of an invisible actinic ink, of which there is no trace on the paper or in the image upon the focussing screen, it is said, will prevent forgery of bank notes.

CONDENSED SWISS MILK. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 24 October 1884

CONDENSED SWISS MILK. On Friday, July 20, at Worship-street police court, London, Messrs. J. C. Flack and Sons, of 484 Bethnal-green-road, appeared to a summon, under tlie sixth section of the Adulteration Act, for having sold condensed milk containing only one quarter of the usual proportion of butter fat. Mr. Lapworth, a sanitary inspector of Bethnal-grecn parish, proved purchasing at the shop of the de- fendants the tin of condensed milk in question, which was submitted to the parochial analyist, and his certificate was not now disputed. The defendants said they purchased the tins of the agent of a Swiss company, and trusted to the label to guarantee the genuineness of the contents. Mr. Hannay said he was inclined to believe the label was not a warranty within the meaning of the Act, and although he did not think the de- fendants were morally guilty, they would have to bear the responsibility. He imposed a nominal penalty of ls., with 23s. costs.

TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 24 October 1884

TOPICS OF THE DAV. The Medical Board of Queensland have decided not to recognise the diplomas of American doctors, and to insist on their being re-examined in Sydney or Melbourne University. In view of the notorious bunglings of our own doctors, this looks pretty rough on the Americans. But there is a reason for it. The colonial university course is modelled on that of the English and Continental ones, and no man can obtain diplomas without at least a fair knowledge of the human frame and its diseases. It is different in America. Al- though some of the best medical men of the day come from there, yet to such an extent has "freedom" been carried, that a man   may buy a diploma for a few dollars, and bleed and drench right and left. An   amusing story of how men drift into special branches of the procession runs this way : A seedy-looking man took his seat on a barber's chair in a Western town. The barber said, " Let me see—I've seen you before. Wasn't you he...

A YANKEE WIFE MURDERER. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 24 October 1884

A YANKEE WIFE MURDERER. Carpenter, the New York wife murderer, is to be hanged. It took the jury only 10 minutes to decide upon a verdict, and, if the process of the law is not thwarted by the culprit's suicide, he will expiate his crime on the gallows. The murder of his innocent wife was cruelly brutal and pre- meditated, and he should hang for it. The jury could have rendered no other verdict, and the sooner the brute is put out of the world the better it will be for society at large. It is to be hoped (remarks a N.Y. print) that the women will not gush over him in their usual custom. The more brutal the murder the greater hero does the murderer become in the estimation of the silly women who load him with bouquets and delicacies and make fools of themselves generally. Of course there is no way of preventing this silly nonsense, but Car- penter committed a murder so cruel and dastardly that it would seem even the silly women might let him alone in his cell.

A DISGUSTING ARISTOCRAT. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 31 October 1884

A DISGUSTING ARISTOCRAT. . Lord St. Leonards made a thoroughly characteristic exhibition of his vulgar tastes after his discharge from the Old Bailey, London, July 5. The moment he was freed he hailed à passing cab and had himself driven toa low pubhc house in the neigh- bourhood, where he called for a pot of beer and a clay pipe. Then he sat in the pubhc tap-room for boors guzzling beer and pro- fanity. He damned the judge, jury, and all engaged in the trial, and the obscene epithets with which he described the vic- tim of his assault, Miss Emma Cole, were such as to disgust even the tap-room loafers who composed his audience. The lord's future prospects in life are very dismal. His steady-going brother, Walter James Sugden, has stood loyally by him during his troubles, but the costs of the trial have about exhausted Walter's limited means, and he is reported to have told his lordship that he had spent all the money he could afford to part with for the honor of their relationship. ...

TWO PLAGUE-STRICKEN TOWNS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 31 October 1884

; TWO PLAGÜE-STRIGKEN TOWNS. Mr. : Harold Frederic, the London corres- pondent of the Nsw YORK TIMBS, returned' a few days ago from Toolon and Marseilles, where he spent file greater part of a week in making a tour of the cholera hospitials, the cemeteries, &c., and investigating, so far as time allowed; the causes of the epidemic now raging. Among the information he has supplied the PALI, MALI. GAZETTE is the folowing :-" The harbour of Marseilles is landlocked. The drainage deposits date from the time of Julius Ceesar. The Mediterranean is tideless, the water in the harbour never changes, 'and the re- sult is a vast stagnant, stinking pool. The great advantage that the town has over Toulon is in its bountiful supply of fresh : water, brought from a distnce of 54 miles and ; discharged from a height of 480ft. There are no open drains, and at present gutters are converted into torrents which run in volumes big enough to exhaust the Alps. But what of it ? The deposit finds it...
