ADELAIDE TEAMS. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Morning Post — 4 December 1907
'ADELAIDE TEAMS. The Adelaide street trams arc thc subject of much satire, remarks a southern writer, but I have;never found nnything singular, about them, excepting that the train you want al- ways seems to be travelling in thc opposite direction. The residents themselves try to get in carly with a tram joke, so as to anticipate omi disarm the visitor; but ono Melbour- ne man promptly made the reference tho excuse for a story. " A poor friend of mine," he said, '"came over herc last winter looking for a job. fío could get no work, however, anil bc determined to commit suicide. He actually lay down on the trnm track witli his head across the rail." "Hov; horrible!" said tho sympathetic citi- zen. "Did he succeed in his im- pose?" "Only in nn indirect way," snid thc visitor.

Our Miscellany. A True Story of Afghanistan. How Samin Jan was Blown from a Cannon. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Morning Post — 4 December 1907
A True ; Story of Afghanistan, How Samin Jan was Blown from a Cannon, , - Let him be blown from the mouth of a cannon. See that Eisaidar Samin Jan ia taken to the very spot where he murdered the German engineer, that he is there bound 1 to the muzzle of a cannon and blown into 1 eternity." | Thus ordered the Ameer of Afghanistan when the turbaned assassin of Mr. Fleischer ; was dragged before him. If the murdered man had been a Russian, the Ameer pro- bably would have complimented and rewarded Risaldar Samin Jan, for he keeps approxi- mately a million men ander arms largely to oppose Kussia's periodical plans to seize his capital city, Hferat. Bat the murder ot a German was differ- ent, for the Ameer, like the Shah of Persia, has reason lu retain the friendship of that country, as well ns that of England, and foreign nations like to see outrages upon their fellow citizens promptly avenged.
