A VERY NEEDFUL INVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven Telegraph — 1 December 1881

A VERY NEEDFUL INVENTION. The facts were these : Mr. Skid's neigh bour kept a goat, and that goat had often got at Mr. Skid and butted him two rods, end over end, and he hated that goat pro fusely. But the neighbour wouldn't keep the goat shut up, and so Skid invented a machine to slay the goat; It was in the form of a man bending down to pick up his hat, but in the booy was a spring or, tremendous power. From the hip pooket of the figure w*ved a red handkerchief — that waa tho target to draw the goat. When he butted it the spring would fly and throw the goat a big distance. The machine was gotten up in a very elaborate style, and looked juBt like a man. It waB perfeot enough to deceive any goat. And it coBt Skid 74dols. But he didn't begrudge the money so long aa it fetched thu goat. And he took the machine and put it out in his front yard, where the goat could see it, and then he retired to bis house and waited to see the fun. He waited about two hours, and then his son came in an...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven Telegraph — 1 December 1881

STHNJGY. IFIIOM OVR COHBESPONDENT .') The most popular event in politics is still that unfortunate Milburn Crook affair. When a inombor of Parliament appears at any public meeting, and rises to address tho crowd, tho first words that he will hoar is almost certainly, ' What about Milburn Crook ?' At a glance 'it appears most unfortunate that this scandal should havo arisen and becomo public, as it will most undoubtedly injuro tho fumo and reputation of tho colony ; but, on the othor hand, it iB far better that tho public should have it, and know and judgo for themselves what things are done by legislators, f o that thoy mny express their condemnation of such corrupt practisos in tho severest terms. A man may be without friends, but he has the gift of ' blather skiting,' and knows how to attend to other people's business better than his own. Ho goes on the stump, and is elected ono of Australia's patriots; ho is in Parliament for some time, speechifying on every question ; he does no...
