Astonishment NOT THE WORD. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 19 April 1895

Astonishment NOT THE WORD. A?sTONISHwENT, most complete, is the principal emotion which possesses people whose business dwvindle. ASTONISHMIENT of the most paralysing sort takes hold of those that fancy that their goods recnm mend themselves . ASTONISHMIENT seizes them effectually when they are told that few people really know what they have to sell. Their goods might recommend thetsselves, if they were well known; but other people, who advertise get in front of them, and get repeat orders, because they are visible, and b, cause they mean to keep so. If nobody advertised, everybody would be aston Ished because one set of people would want what another set of people have to sell, and neither would know it. Busi ness would go duller every day, and if some thoughtful trader made a plunge :ithl an advertisement he would get all the business in his own line. It stands to reason that the man who has goods to sell and does not tell anybody about it is like one whose shop window is beautifu...

CORNER MEN OF THE STREET. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 19 April 1895

CORNER MEN OF THE STREET. It is a common sight to ree a group of men with their hands in th-ir pockets, and their pipes in their mouths, standing in front of public :ouses. They turn up in the morning with the greatest regularity, and remain there so persistently that the are called " corner men." ,ow what has often puzzled many' people is how these men manage to make-a living. They hold a horse now end then. or ran an errand, and so pickup a Lfew coppers; but all this im mediately goes in ,eer. to help still more to disfigure their already bloated countenances. lerpleied on this point the writer asked a policeman if he could. throw any light on the matter. "Oh," s'd he. "their wives go out charing and work of that kind. They make theirwivres keep them and give them pocket money. If they haven't any money for them they best them." It wouldn't bea b?ad idea to have a lair compelling these eurs to do the most disagreeable work in the various coaumunit'es they belon" to.

-A BEHARKABLR TRIAL... ] In a difficulty arising out of politics I two prominent Ameriian citizens became involved, and one killed the other.He was arrested and indicted for murder. His friends employed Edward DI). Baker to defend him. Bakor was just coming to the front as a great criminal advocate; was young, ambitious.
