The phy. occian lives in a very modern establishment. Not only is there a special night-bell, but a opeaking-tube connects the doorsteps with the head of his bed. The practical joker has had fun with thie. He has been comirg along about 1.;0 a.m. and standing on the opposite corner and laughing until his sides ached. thinkirg how funny he was and what a good time he was having. Then he would cross over and ring the night-bell and howl up the speaking-tube se if a whole regiment of people in the next block were dying. And the poor, tired doctor would rouse out of his first sweet sleep and "hello" down the tube. Then the funny man would say: " Does Dr. J- live here ?"'' " Yee."

A Night of Terror. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 6 August 1890
A Night of Terror. By E. A. Matthews. Old Miss Armstrong sat alone in her great I drawing room looking at the fire. It was a cold evening late in the month of June; heavy raindrops dashed against the window panes, while a wailing wind moaned in fitful gusts among the treee that surrounded the great house. This old-fashioned mansion was a solitary place just in the outekirts of one of our suburbs. It dated from the days of Mise Armstrong's grandfather, and had become hers by inheritance, as she was the sole sur vivor of a once large and prosperous family. Tonight it seemed particularly lonely, and with reason. Miss Armstrong was on the eve of a journey to Europe. and had just completed the necessary arrangements. Her servants were dismissed, the furniture pocked. Of all her domestics no one was left buo John Berry, the butler, who was to sleep in the house to-night and be ready to receive the keys in the morning. In the afternoon she had driven to the bank and drawn out a considerabl...
THE HOME Women's Dress in Japan. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 6 August 1890
IfE HUIWEM Women'skDre s in Japan. The dress of a Japanese woman of the middle or upper classee begins with the yumoji, a rectanogular piece of stuff wrapped around the loins and reaching to the knee, like the towel of. a bshampooer. Over this comes a beautiful garment called the jiban, a robe like a perfectly simple bath gown with square sleeves, fitting quite close to the body, and generally made of delibate and pale-colored oilk erape. In winter an addi tional garment called the ohitagi goes over this-all the garments of a Japanese woman after the first petticoat are identical in shape and fit into one another like a nest of boxes. In summer over the jiban comes the outer dress called, for either man or woman, the kimono. This may be made of pretty cotton stuffs or cotton crape for household wear, or of silk crape or silk, or the richest embroidery and brocade for full dress and ceremonial occasions. It is tied at the waist with a long sash of soft silk crape called the hosobi, w...

A STRUGGLE FOR LIFE. Told by an Ex-Detective. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 6 August 1890
ASTRUGGLE FOR LIFE, Told by an Ex-Detective. One morning, a good many years ago now, a robbery case was put into my hands that turned out to be a most complicatel rifair, and which, before I had done with it, nearly cost me my life. The policeman on duty in Pall Mall that same morning had observed, about seven o'clock, marks of blood on the door of one of the club-houses, and finding that the door was unfastened, he made his way to the steward's bedchamber, whero he discovered that individual lying on the dfloor insensible, and bleeding profusely from wounds in the head. Moreover, a cash-box was standing on a table open and empty. This was the brief report, ard I was at once despatched by my chief to Pal Mall to inquire into the atTair. On arriving at the club-house-which, for various reasons, shall be nameless-I learned that a surgeon had been in attendance upon the injured man, and that in addition to the wounds in the head others, it was asserted, had been dis covered on the arm,...

Tlhe,e,,olection campaign was fairly opened on Thursday evening, when the first public icieting of the year was held in the Oddflellows' Hall by Mr. J. Emnery, a candidate for the Middle Vard. The attendance was not very large. Ur. Fleming was voted to the chair, and said that lie did not anticipate oc cupying such a positioln that evening, iunsmuch as lie merely came to listen. In introducing Mr. Emery lie would say that hlie was a young man seeking lhonors like lie (the speaker) did 2.1 years ago. But he must also say a word of Cr. Driscoll, wlhoii lie was glad to see occupy such a position, and who was a credit to the council. With all re spect to Mr. Emery, lie thought, had lihe been in his position, lie would have allowed Cr. D)riscoll a longer trial, as lie had only been in since last Noventi bar, and had not had full opportunities of proving his mierits. Mr. Emery remarked that lie ...
STORE BREAKING. POLICE AS TRACKERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 6 August 1890
STORE BREAKING. POLICE AS' T'RACKERS. Information reached the Brunswick police early on Sunday morning that one of the well-known grain stores of the Hon. D. Melville, situate in Albion street west, had been entered by thieves, though it could not be ascertained what quantity of wheat had been stolen. Constable Dyson found on examination that entrance had been gained to the building by cutting out a window and afterwards succeeded in picking up wiheel tracks and following them, through a few grains of wheat having fallen apparently from a hole in a bag, for some distance. At nine. o'clock he was relieved by Senior-constable Percival and Constable Scholes, who very cleverly tracked the course taken by the thieves from Albion-street to Nicholson street as far as the North Fitzroy tram terminus. Here nearly two hundred. yards were traversed ere. any traces could be found, but ultimately an in distinct line, consisting of a few grains of wheat was discovered and followed along Park, Can...
Incongruities in Hair. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 6 August 1890
Incongruities in Hair. "Yes," said the hairdresser. as he pomaded and bandolined a sitter's hair, "we have some curious features in our business. For example, there's the ' widow's lock.'" "Is that a style of hair indigenous to widows 1" "It is supposed to predict widowhood. It is a look that grows out straight at the part. ing of the hair, and will not grow long enough to be combed back with the other hair. Then there is the cowlick." "Is that another independent lock?" "Yes; it grows etreight up from the forehead like a tuft of groas, as if a cow had licked it op-and it is no stubborn that ladies afflicted with them oftllen part their hair on the side to avoid them. They are a great trouble, and no one knows why they have them." The hairdreeser took a roll of hairpins and put a dozen or nso in his mouth. E-v'r h-c-a-r of 1.ove.locks ?" "No; that hairpin swent right into my brain. What are they 0' ''Love locks? Oh, they are nrot in the fashion now. They were made by cuttiong a lock...
