CRIME IN SCOTLAND INCREASE REPORTED EXCESSIVE FINES DISCUSSED [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 March 1914

CRIME IN SCOTLAND INCREASE REPORTED EXCESSIVE FINES DISCUSSED " A report on the judicial statistics of Scotland for 1912 was issued yesterday (says- "The Scotsman" for December 3). The Prison Commissioners, in a covering: letter to the Secretary for Scotland, say:— - -• - "We regret to have to report a gen eral increase in crime, which is most marked in assaults, theft, theft by housebreaking, - indecency, and in minor crimes and offences, principally breach of peace and drunkenness'. We again think it right to direct special attention to the large number of per sons committed to prison in Scotland in default of payment of fines—viz., 36,631, out of a total of 89,013 sen tenced to pay fines. From these fig ures it appears that in Scotland 41 per cent, of those sentenced to pay fines are admitted into prison in default of payment, but of these 11 per cent, pay part fines after admission, leaving 30 per cent, who undergo entire sentence of imprisonment in default. From the report on t...

Mark Twain says : " When I was editing the "Virginia City Enterprise," writing copy one day and mining the next, a superstitious subscriber once wrote and said he had found a spider in his paper. Was this good or bad luck ? I replied to him in our ' Answers to Correspondents' column as follows: ' Old Subscriber.—The finding of a spider in your copy of the ' Enterprise' was neither good luck nor bad. The spider was merely looking over our pages to find out what merchant was not advertising, so that it could spin its web across his door, and lead a free and undisturbed existence for ever after.'' Take No Other.—"For nine .years I suffered with a liver disorder and tried numerous medicines, obtaining very little relief," writes Miss Esther J. Coles, Major's Creek, U.S. \V. " xlfter taking.. Chamberlain's Tablets regularly for a fortnight, I found I was greatly bene-' I fited, and am now completely restored to health.

GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 March 1914

GENERAL NEWS. Cr James Kennedy, of Welelvin, near Coraki, had a thrilling encounter with a big carpet snake, eleven feet in length, which, when afterwards dissected, was found to contain five china eggs and a silver fork. Mrs Kennedy, when about to take a bottle from a kitchen dresser, saw the snake in the act of striking at her. _Cr Kennedy went to her assistance, and to save his wife, seized the snake with both hands. The reptile wound itself round his neck and body. The struggle was a desperate one, but it was ended by Mrs Kennedy coming to the rescue with a knife and cutting the snake in two. Ricked His Back.— "I ricked my back severely and was unable to stand upright," writes Mr Thos." H. Maher, Ebden, Vic. " I had seen Chamber lain's Pain Balm advertised for strains, and thought I would see what it would do for me. The first application gave me relief, and I was quite myself again after using only a quarter ot" a bottle." Sold by all storekeepers and chemists.* In referring to...

THE DRUIDS' GALA. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 March 1914

THE DRUIDS' CALA. ' The Druids have decided that this | year the proceeds of their Gala. Art Union and Bazaar shall be devoted ex clusively to a charity whose benefits are strictly reserved for the helpless poor who are afflicted with incurable diseases, namely, the Austin Hospital, Heidelberg, which provides accommo dation for 230 inmatee, and is with one exception the largest medical charity in the State, the cost of main tenance annually being over £11,500. Such an object, whose noble work, in. addition to relieving the worst forms of human suffering, is a permanent safeguard of public health, they feel confident cannot but meet with resi dents' sympathy and approval, and they therefore rely upon their generous sup port and cooperation in the task before them. There is no sharper sting in the pathos of the Austin than in cases where strength fights hard. Greater agony there may be—the can cer wards are full of histories of such ghastly torment that it may not be told - but there ...

MELBOURNE PIG MARKET. Messrs Mcl'hail Bros. & Co. report under date of 11 tli and 12th inst :— 2,600 pigs yarded for the week, and, with the bad weather conditions pre vailing, prices for all sorts suffered, as the condition was greatly affected by the heat. Stores.—Tlie demand was weaker, competition being limited to a few local farmers, and prices ruled in favour of buyers. Extra strong, in good con dition, were bought by killers at from 28s to 33s ; seconds, 23s to 26s ; slips, 15s to 21s ; suckers, 8s to' 14s. Porkers—Owing to the weather the demand lacked ' animation throughout. and price9 were decidedly lower than former rates. Prime made 37s to 42s ; extra, 43a to 45s, with a couple of ex ceptionally choice pigs to 49s. - ■ Bacon.—For quality sorts the market can be reported somewhat firmer, while for nondnscripts, as in last week's sales, the demand was slack and prices very low.

A harvest thanksgiving service in connection with the Moe Metho dist Church was conducted on Sunday evening, 8th inst. The church was neatly decorated by a number of willing helpers, dona tions of farm produce, fruit etc., being displayed to advantage. The service was conducted by Mr Prentice, who delivered a most appropriate and interesting address. During the service, a solo was nicely rendered by Mrs J. Smith. At'the last meeting of the Nar racan Shire Council, Ors Beck and Mahony waxed warm over the blackberry question, the former asserting that none had been cut down his way this year.—The in spector (Mr Murray) referred to what was being done by Messrs Thompson, Sullivan, Austin and Brett, and said he considered that the best time to cut the blackberry was in the fruiting seasop.—Cr Mahony (also Ors. Beck and Powell) disagreed with the inspector, and said that some of the seeds from those very blackberries might now be down in Trafalgar, carried as they are by birds and foxes....

CRICKET. THE MOE AND DISTRICT ASSOCIATION. MOE v.- THORPDALE. (By Spectator). The above clubs met on the Thorp dale ground. The visitors had firBt use of the wickets, and put up the re spectable score of 104. C. Hampton (25) batted really well. Johnston knocked up 18 in quick time. A feature of the innings was that every man scored. T. Powell (4 for 18) and T. Snowball (3 for 44) shared the bowling honors. Torode (28), Back house (22) and Callanan (28 not out) played well for Thorpdale, who lost four wickets for 83, the match being unfinished. The Moe bowling was in no wise deadly. A remarkable thing, however, was that not a single bye was scored by Thorpdale, the only sundry being a wide. Scores : — MOE. E. Lush, b Powell ... ... '7 C. Baker, b Snowball ... ... 3 P.

MYSTERIES SOLVED BY DREAMS [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 March 1914

fYSTERIES SOLVED BY■ DREAMS, Not a little stip has been created throughout the Methodist denomina tion by the announcement of tie dis covery of a large number of original diaries kept by the famous Wesley. These diaries were written either in an abbreviated long-hand, an obsolete system of shorthand, or in a highly complex keyles6 cipher. At first the Rev. Nehemiah Curnock, editor of t'ne new edition of "Wesley's Journal," was nonplussed by this cipher. Briefly, It may be explained that ultimately one vowel was found to be the key to all the consonants. Patiently, Mr. Curnock puzzled over the cipher. Then J at last, by a strange inspiration, the missing letter, he says, came to him in a dream. He discovered that a fre quently recurring .sign meant, and could only mean, 12, but this proved useless aa a clue until in his dream, after nights of thinklng^and-.jraclMng of brains, he found that the figure 2 stood for "a." In spite of this extra ordinary solution of the mysterious cipher, ...

The Way Out. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 March 1914

The Way Out. Mr. Jorkins was once invited to tea at a certain Louse. Immediately on being seated at the table, a little daughter of the house said to the guest abruptly: "Where is your wife?" Now Jorkins, who had recently sep arated from his better half, .was sur prised and annoyed at the question, and stammered forth: "I don't know." . "Don't know!" repeated the child. "Why don't you know?" Finding that the. child persisted in her interrogations, despite the mild reproof of lier parents, Jorkins deci ded to make a clean breast of the mat ter, and have it over at once. So he said, with calmness: "Well, we don't live together. We think, as we can't agree, we'd better not." ; "Can't agree! Then why don't you fight it out, the same as father and mother do?" !

EIGHTEENTH CENTURY EPIGRAMS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 March 1914

EIGHTEENTH CENTURY EPIGRAMS. A florid speech without matter is like a drum—noisy, but empty. Prosperity has the qualities of the waters of Lethe—they who taste of it forget themselves. The actions of men are like the in dex of a book; they point out what is most remarkable in them. To Hatter a good man is needless; a bad one an insult. Nobility, like great rivers, has often an obscure origin. _ Learning is to the mind what dross is to the body—useful and ornamen tal. Pedantry is the foppery of learning, as fringe and embroidery are of dress. It is amazing that men should affect to know everything, and yet be so de ficient in the very first, principle of wisdom—know thyself. Experience and observation are the lighthouses of reason, which direct us in our steerage through the dangerous ocean of life. Kings have long arms; they should have short memories. Ingratitude is a poison of so dele terious a nature that it even destroys the very bosom in which it liarbore. A noble mansion with ...
