SET A THIEF TO CATCH A THIEF. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 20 July 1894
SET A THIEF TO CATCH A THIEF. The old saying is that 'there is" honour even among thives,' seems to lead many persons to be believe that a higher sense of honour prevails -among the light figered gentry than is possessed by other people," remarked a well-known detective tihe other day. Now that is a sad mistake. Thieves are the best friends we have in our line of work. \Ve get more assistance from them than from any other source; and I believe 1 shounl be warranted is saying all other sources combined. \S, often make one thief catch an thelr. Repeatedly we get a man into a very tight place, when, in order to help himself, he is willing to help use It is a very common thing for prisoners to turn informers. Of course, there is a good reason for this sort of a display of virture; but it is almost a daily occnurence for thieves to come to us with 'tips' ail infor mation that they want to sell when there is nothing to induce them to do so except a laudable desire to earn a little money. ...

" How was it ? "I went in and said, 'Mr. Farthing ton, I called to speak about a matter'-I didn't get any further, when he put in with.

GUY'S HOSPITAL AND ITS ROMANCE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 20 July 1894
GUY'S HOSPITAL AND ITS ROMANCE. Few people think, or would timagine, that the sp[endid building known to this generation as Guys Hospital owes its origin-its charitable origin-to the dis obedience of a servant. Yet such is the fact. The story is interesting, and can be briefly told. Mr. Thomas Guy was a bookseller. He carried on his business with considerable acumen at 'Number One, Cornhill "-a house frequently al luded to, forming an angle with Lombaid Street, and known as 'Lucky Corner.' Now it came to pass that the Exchequer, being in straightened circumstances in the reign of the great and good William III, could not pay ready money to the de fenders of the country; and the sailor particularly, was obliged to put up with 'paper'-a debenture or ticket which the men were constrained to sell, and so sel ling, to lose on the transaction. Fre quently these buyers were in time com pelled by necessity, to sell the tickets at an enormous discount, and the fortunate purchaser then often ...
ODDITIES IN WILL MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 20 July 1894
ODDITIES IN WILL MAKING. There is a decided element of romance connected with one of the largest, most valuable estates in the Midland Counties, England, but never before, so far as we are aware, told in print. One day, many years ago, a certain landowner went to his lawyer, and gave him instructions for the drawing up of his will. . He had five sons, and he desired that his posses sions shculd be divided among them in such a way that each should be well provided for. The lawyer duly took the instructions, but asked, when the client had come to an end of the various be quests " Whom shall I put down as the re mainder man? It is a mere formality, because, as you have five sons, there is - not the slightest chance of. any lack of heirs. Still, it is usual to put down the name of somebody or other." = "Well," replied the client; "put down any one you like. Your clerk, there," indicating a lad in another room ; "hell do." The document was piepared .accor dingly, and remained in this for...
"NO WONDER THE COUNTRY GROANS!" [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 20 July 1894
"-O WONDER THE COUNTRY GROANS ' Dn. 3IALOaEY, 3LP., deserves tbe thanks of the community for drawing attention to two of the rapacious foreign pensioners whc. materially assist to absorb the life ,:!ood of the colony, in the persono of the light Hon. H. C. K Ghilders and Sir Andrew Clark?e It was not to be expected that any material action would resultfrom thehon member for Wes 31elbourne's demand -" That the Government request those pensioners to reside permanently in Victoria from January, 1895; and, failing their agreeing to do so, wourd the Government bring in a bill to abolish their pensions 1" Nevertheless, tl;e expose is an object lesson to be reId, marked, and inwardly digested. Sir James Patterson snorted at the presumption of the request, and iL_ a wild fury said that Clarke served the colony before the representative for West Melbourne was born: Exactly ! He served (?) the country at a large salary for three years, eight mouths, and nine days, for which, up to the commenc...
FAIR PLAY'S A DUEL. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 20 July 1894
Tam PAV'S A D0L. & Frenchman (who had refused every pro v:ous invitati.n to fight a duel, on the grounn t.,at he had never fought before, and was therefore muot unlikely to prove a victor in any eneountcr) was at last compelled by his f.;ocu?? to meet an adversary who had grossly insulted him in the Bois de Boulogune, and at ver, sshrt notice. With his heart in his mouth, he went to the spot indicated by his second, and after a few passes, during which he remaiiled unscathed, he managed to pene trate the ri ;h: lung of his antagonist with a small but exceedingly sharp sword.

LOVERS OF WARMTH. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 20 July 1894
LOVERS OF WARMTH. The invention of fire was a great step in the progress of the human race, and it is not strange that so many uncivilised peoples have superstitious notions con nected with it. When our Australian aborigines camp for the night a fire is lighted in front of each hut-the huts be ing made of boughs, with the openings carefully turned away from the wind-so that the feet of those who are sleeping within may be kept warm. If one of their relatives has lately died, an additional and solitary fire is lighted at a little distance from the huts, where the ghost of the deceased may sit down and warm himself without disturb ing the family hearth. In fact, warmth is so great a necessity to the natives that they seem to think the dead can only by degrees become accos tomed to the want of it, and the airing of a grave by kindling3k fre within it is a very important ceremony at a funeral. This same love of warmth creates an aversion to early rising, the natives are seldom seen abro...

As will be seen in our report of the proceedings, the club ask that in the event of the present committee of management tendering their resignation as a body, would the council carry out their October a?-eement which has never been rescinded.

Webb,' Cox,O'itea, and Launder take a lot.of beating. Free kicks and rough play conspicuous by their absence. Reid and Rolent picked for the inter colonial match.
