CHELTENHAM POLICE COURT. WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 7. (Before Messrs. Allen and Brown, J's.P.) BREACH OF BY-LAW [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 10 December 1887

OCHELTENHAI POLICE COURT. WEDNESDAY, DECEMBERI 7. (Before Messrs. Allen and Brown, J's.P.) BREACH OF BY-LAW Senior-Constable Cowan as the inspeo tor of Nuisances for the Shire of Moor abbin, proceeded against W. Dale, for carting nightsoil during prohibited hours. Mr. Crisp appeared for complainant, and Mr. Croker, instructed by Mr. Gillot appeared for the defence. Mr. Croker, at the outset, raised a teonical objection to the summons. He said that the stamp was improper by it bearing the initials " F. L.," which was nut the initials of the Clerk of Court. The law provided that the clerk of the court was the only person that could legally cancel the stamp. Mr. Crisp said that this was a mere frivolous objection, and did not in any way affect the validity of the summons. As a mere matter of fact the summons bore a cancelled stamp, and the cancel ling of the stamp was a perfectly minis. terial act. If the stamp was improperly initialled, the personwho so initialled or cancelled the sta...

It will be in the remembrance of our read-. ers that when the preliminary meetings, of the representatives of the various Friendly Societies, was being held to make arrange ments for the gala or fete, the temperance societies fell out on account of its being decided to sanction the sale of spirituous and intoxicating liquors on the ground, and even a canal observer last Thursday must admit that this was about the only thing that tended to mar the enjoyment of the day.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 10 December 1887

L - Making Common Soap.-Manufacturers doing a large business haveo.kettles holding several thousand pounds. The iigredients of ordinary family soap are, primarily, grease or tallow, rosin, soda ash, and salt. They are boiled for a couple of days, and Sthen alldowed to cool for about three days. SThe soap isthen pumped from near the I bottom of the kettle-this is because the soap in the bottom cools more quickly than at the top-into a crutcher, nearly like a milk churn, where it is mixed thoroughly. In this crutcher most of the adulteration commonly used in soap 'is introduced. Among the materials put into soap are marble dust, glucose, sal soda, which is not used so much to cheapen the soap as to imprbve its appear. ince, flour and starch. From the. crutcher the soap is run into boxes called frames, and is cut into bars when it becomes hard. It takes about two weeks from the time the material is put in the kettle to the time the bars are placed in the boxes ready for the market. One...

OPENING OF ELECTRIC TRAMWAY. Picnic Point to Mordialloc and Cheltenham. December 12, 1890. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 10 December 1887

SOPENING OF ELECTRIC TRAMWL AY.._._ Picnic Point to iMordialloc and Cicltcnlhams. December 12, 1800. Yesterday a scene was witnessed on the shores of Hobson's Bay, along the stretch of Beach, from PicnicsPoint to Mordialloo, which surely mairks:the inauguration of a new era. "The tramway, running along the esplanade and connecting the above mentioned places, started to run by elec tric power, the generating force being ob tained by exceedingly simple contrivances from the wave ptwer of the bay. It will be remembered that in the be. ginning of 1888 this line was opened as a horse tramway. Subsequent to the pro jection of the work of laying down the rails, and previous to its completion there had been some friction between the Shire Council of Moorabbin (of which the Shire I of Sandringham then formed a part) and the Tram Company. The differences were, however, happily settled, as it was felt on all hands that a tram service would lead, as it has done, to the settlement of a con sider...

THINCS WORTH KNOWINC. -o A fever patient is cooled off and made more comfortable by frequent sponging with warm godawater. A balt. easpoonftl of soda in half a cup of water will rehlieve silckheadache that is caused by indigestion. Warm musnetard water should be given to one who has aooidentally swallowed poison; bthis will cause vomiltlug; after that give a cup of strong coffee; oas will counteraot the remaining effects. When going from a warm room out into the cold air close your mouth tightly and breathe through your nose to prevent taking cold. A hard cold is oftentimes cured by a cap of hot lemonade taken at bedtime, as it will prodnuce perspiration. Consumptive night sweats may be arrested by sponging the patient's body at night with ualt and water. :.Teething children may be relieved of con. vuleions by being immersed in a warm bath, and cold water applied to the head.

Novelist. DAYS OF CRIME AND YEARS OF SUFFERING AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY.   ------♦♦♦------ (Reprinted from "The Australasian" of 1867 by Special Permission.) ------♦♦♦------ CHAPTER XXXVI. AWAITING TRIAL. It is probable that my reader feels some sort of curiosity to know the particular events which led to my being so completely. surprised by the guardians of the law, and so I will at once narrate them. The shopman at the Yellow Slipper was, as I have already related, a companion of mine on Cockatoo Island. We had often together (in fancy) stuck up mails in that delightful seminary. The peculiar manner in which the Portland mail had been robbed was there familiar to us both, as far as conversation could make it. The shopman, remembering these things, and seeing me well furnished with cash, thought it very possible that I might be one of the mail robbers. The boots I left in the shop with him were a new pair of kangaroo-skin blucher boots—the same I wore on the day of the robbery...
