NOT SPARKS.

He | dpi not. appear .to be ill at ease, and | he smiled a greeting t> a friend. If I ne had any sense of humour it was i probably tickled at tho trend of events. He was charged with having I escaped from legal custodv on 3rd ! July, 1901. ! Mr Charles Bainctt, who appeared | for accused, said h-: was not Spark?, and that he strenuously denied the charge. ! Inspector Kennealy : We are going to ask your worships to discharge '? this man. A mistake has evidently been made. I Dctectivc Burvett said that in con sequence of certain intelligence re ceived at head...

[?]TAN COSSIP. THE POLICE FORCE. [Newspaper Article] — Chiltern and Howlong Times and Ovens Register — 6 January 1914
V . OHE EOUOB POKCE. Complaints have appeared in the metropolitan papojg of the officious mi offensive action of some co-i jtables in the city when enforcing the "move on" regulation. It ig said that they inform respectable citi zens in a needlesly brusque and' un couth manner that they must not linger in conversation, and so.-ne ? tiroes give them a sort of half thrive, or at anyrate place a hand on' their shoulder. to lend force to their jnjuncl'on. The complaints appear in the main well founded, and should nt once receive tlie at tention . of the Chief Commissioner. Touching a person under such cir cumstances is quite uncalled for, and is eminently calculated to provoAe resentment. . It is suggestive of arrest, and naturally people do not like to feel "the hand of the. law" on them-especially when they have not. committed any offence. At the samo' time in justice to the police, I muse say that the way some of the young dudes congregate at tlie "Puppy's Corner" in Collins street 0...

MURMUNGEE. [Newspaper Article] — Chiltern and Howlong Times and Ovens Register — 6 January 1914
JiURMUNGEE. (From our own correspondent), Xmas has come and gone, and has boon very enjoyable, both as regards the weather and prosperity. The bush fire that was burning lately on the hills, came down rather low and gave some anxiety to the residents in the vicinity, some of whom had to stop up all night watch ing. Another outbreak wa3 nar rowly averted in Howe's Oreek. It is surmised that somebody had thrown down a butt of a cigarette or cigar, which, with a little wind, started the .grass. It was soen, however, ? in time and was put out before any damago was done. Those smoking cannot be too careful of throwing away anytning like this, or even safety mutcnes, as they sometime? smciilder for some time, especially now, wnen the grass is so dry. Mr G. IJalgleish and family . have lc-/t this part an* gone to live' near Myrtleford, on some property he has lately secured. During the heavy wind storm last week, a large gum tree was blown down across the Buckland Gap, com yletely blocking...
