Odds and Ends. The Farmer. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 15 October 1887

Once on a time he used to plough And rise at dawn to milk the cough, And drive with merry song and laugh To pasture Brindle and her caugh Then for the pig's he'd fill the trough, And for the market he'd be ough; Sometimes, his mare would bruise her hough Against a fence-post or a rough. And there he'd switch her with a bough To teach her better anyhough. He planted wheat to make the dough, Which, in drought, was hard to grough. In winter, when his work was through, A little sporting he would dough. He'd wander with his gun and shough And aim at crows he couldn't knough. Sometimes he'd hunt along the slough. For birds that do not live there nough, And shoot a seagull or a clough, Which he with joy would proudly shough. From swamp land, watered by a lough, He made good pasture for his stough, By laying here and there a sough, While perspiration wet his brough. Sometimes a snake that shed its slough Would scare him so he'd run and pough Till stiok knee-deep-withii silough, He'd yell un...

THE CHINESE QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 15 October 1887

THE CHINESE QUESTION.   A public meeting to discuss the influx of Chinese into Victoria was held in the Brunswick town hall last Friday evening. About 600 persons were present. Mr S. King, the mayor, occupied the chair, and said the various suburbs were, con- siderably agitated on the question. Mr J. Lacey moved, and Mr Burchett seconded the following resolution: " That this meeting of ratepayers of Brunswick, after carefully observing the increasing members and injurious effects of Chinese in this colony, feel it impera- tive on them to protest strongly against the present Chinese Immigration Act, as being altogether incapable of dealing with the danger, and earnestly appeal to the Ministry to legislate at once and de- cisively on the question, by enacting that naturalisation papers shall no longer be issued to, or accepted from, Chinese ; and, further that the poll tax be increased to £100." Mr C. H. Pearson, Minister of Public. Instruction, supported the resolution, ...

MAGISTERIAL ENQUIRY AT OAKLEIGH. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 15 October 1887

MAGISTERIAL ENQUIRY AT OAKLEIGH. A magisterial enquiry into the cause of the death of an old and respected resident of Oakleigh, named Andrew Bates, whose body was found in a tank, on the premises just outside the township, on the 8th inst., was held by Thos. Irwin, J.P., last Monday at his late residence. Isabella Bates deposed : Deceased was my husband, and was 53 years of age. Last saw him alive on the evening of the 7th inst., at about half-past eight o'clock. He was then in the kitchen sitting close by the fire. Went out to milk the cow and re- turned in about a quarter of an hour, and found he had gone out. He was under the   influence of drink when I last saw him alive, and he was also suffering from a severe ill- nes. He was much worse when he was under the influence of drink, than when he refrained from it. Made every enquiry all round the neighborhood, but could not as- certain anything of his whereabouts. On   the following morning noticed his ha...

DAYS OF CRIME   AND YEARS OF SUFFERING. AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY. ------♦♦♦------ Reprinted from "The Australasian" of 1867 by special permission.) CHAPTER XX.—(Continued)   "I arrived in London with a younger friend with only a couple of pounds in my pocket. This I knew would go but a very little way, and so I exercised my wits a little to hit upon some expedient for a month or two months' comfortable subsist- ance. In the first place I wanted a resi- dence; secondly, furniture; lastly, eatables. Well, you know enough of me by this time to be well assured that my scruples wouldn't be any great obstacle in obtain- ing these desiderata. I first of all purchased a couple of two shilling stamps, and filled them in to the tune of £150 each, payable in three and two months from date. I also procured a cheque book, from which I tore out several of the cheques, and filled in the butts with various amounts, but all over £100. I had an old fashioned large Russian-leather pocket-book, an...
