A,resident of Yarraville, a Mr Saunders, handed his son. 9 years of age, three sovereigns in a purse to take home to his mother. Bull saw the act, and' following the child, extracted one sovereign from the purse.

On being brought before the local court last Monday, an Army officer reported that Bull's conduct had been all that could be expected of him. An elder brother undertook to look after Bull, who was thereupon discharged, Remember, wnen getting your sup tag's, grocer,, lp Canterbury street, plies > for. .tba week to call at Field «r §8 SomtrvlUt road, Tarravilltr'
