" The \ùdow of a Bailor once employed ma to Had tba money which ehe waa eure her husband had bidden. Now Bailors almost always carry their pay about their person?. This fact made me leel sura that the money was somewhere in tho dead man's clothes. Y/ell. they were brought to me, and a pretty seedy looking set of raga they were, with one exception. Around the edge of tho coat was a broad binding, neatly sawed cn, and in much better condition than the rest of the cloth.

A Delicious Java Fruit. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 14 September 1889

A Delicious Java Fruit. ! Travellers in Java have filled pages and { columns with rhapsodies over tho mangosteen ! and all unite in extolling it as the nuprcmb I delight of the tropics. Tho mangoslejn ap j pears to one as a hard, round fruit the size j of a peach. Its hard outer shell or rind ia of I thc aamc color and thickness as a green ! walnut, but in this brown husk lio six or ! eight segments of creamy white pulp. Tho little regmtnts arc easily separated, and trensfcrred to the mouth melt away, the pulp being as soft and fine and a custard. Th mangosteen's delicate pulp tastes, as all ita I eulcgitts say, like strawberries, peaohes, i bananas and oranges all at once; a slight I tartness is veiled in theso delicious flavors, j and it is never cloyingly sweet. Takeu just I as it comes from thc icc box thc mango-1 eu ! is an epicure's dream reallied, and the I morea thc pity that it only grows in far »woy placen nnd deadly climates, and does I not besr transportation.

We owe nearly £4:000, and the new company will pay all liabilities of the old. Thc lawyers tell us wc cannot issue the shares paid up to ITs 6:1, so will make them all alike-120,000 with 2s Gd liability. . . In the meantime it is intended to form a new company with the old shareholders, and have a capital of £15,000 or 2s. 6d per share. It is intended to have stampers.

OÜR contemporary's sentimental leader of last Saturday, in which we are taken to- task on the mistaken understanding of having given np our faith in the countiy, might have been a very proper criticism had tire writer not wandered away into the hazy world of imagination. Ife can never be honestly said of as that we have lost faith in the Territory to the extent that would cause us to ridicule its natural resources. These will exist no matter,'what newspapers j may say to the contrary. Our con- tention was that , the Government are greatly at fault in not making an effort to counteract the depression which, is evidently.coming upon the country ; and we still maintain that unless they do so, or nomething else very unforseen happens to 'create business and " go " in the place, the next twelve months will be a term of very great dullness all round.
