LOCAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 17 December 1887
LOCAL -NEWS. .? -.0-~`~ .··; TUAT large and imp;irtant district?lying between the Brighton and OakleighTrail. way lines, which is rapidly beoo-m'ing very extensively populated, is now, and has been for some years past, with scarcely any convenience of transit for residents to either of the nearest railway stations. The Caulfield Tramway. Company, Lim ited, of which the prospectus is adver tised in another column, is projected:to do away with this inconvenience.' Their proposal is to construct a horse tramway between the Elsternwick station on the Brighton line, the Caulfield station on the Oakleigh line, and the Glen Huntly station on the Frankstonl line. The en ginneer of the Shire of Caultield has pre pared an estimate of the probable cost, which includit g rolling stock, he says, will amount to about £11,000. From the prospectus it will be seen that the routes proposed to be traverse d are in close proximity to the most populous portions of the district, and as land along the lin...

Novelist. DAYS OF CRIME AND YEARS OF SUFFERING AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY. Reprinted from "The Australasian" of 1867 by special permission.) CHAPTER XXXVII.—(Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 17 December 1887
Novelist. DAYS OF ORIME AND YEARS OF SUFFERING AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY. &nbsp; Reprinted from" The Australasian" of 1867 by special permission.), CHAPTER XXXVII.—(Continued.) "First, gentlemen, you will say that &nbsp; his identity has been sworn to. But there is a question which should be antecedent to this—Could the witnesses, under the circumstances, really identify? Here is the case. A robbery is committed. The robbers are artistically disguised; every precaution which the intuitive fear of con- scious guilt could suggest to evade detec- tion is adopted; their faces are artfully concealed, and doubtless the same subtlety would be extended to their speaking in assumed tones; they have neither cloven feet nor hump-backs; and yet the wit- nesses pretend to identify. It is true, they say, to the best of' their belief; but &nbsp; this belief can only be akin to Scripture faith—the evidence of things not seen, and that in this court is not the evidence required.

OUTRAGE AT GLEN HUNTLY. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 17 December 1887
OUTRAGE AT GLEN IIUNTLY. Late last Saturday night Mr William Collins, the stationmaster at 'the Glen Huntly station, on the Mor dialloo line, was struck down in the booking office by .a burglar. The keys of the iron safe were taken from his prostrate form, and the cash was stolen from the safe. The un 'fortunate stationmaster was felled to the ground.by some heavy instrumeut, and it is doubtful whether he will survive. The first intimation from the spot was received by Railway-detective Wilson, whose house in Kensington is in telephonic communication with the various railway stations within the suburban radius so furnished. Shortly after midnight Wilson was seated in his diningroom with In spIector Jarvis, of Bow-street, Lou Sdon, when his telephone rang. The message came through that the porter ill charge of the Glen Huntly station had been nearly murdered and the station robbed. Wilson, without a moment's delay, proceeded to the re sidence of Dr. Shutter, who lives in an i:djacent...

How to Learn to Swim. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 24 December 1887
.Itow to LectsV b.to Swsils. The first thing to be done is to learn to duck without minding it. Hold your.brcath and put your head under water several times whenever you bathe. You :may probably strangle a bit, at first, but the ducking will become' less and less disagreeable,until the disiniclination to go under water nearly or quite disappears. Of course the bather need not make a martyr of himself by spending his' whole time in the practice of ducking. He may splash about as much as he likes. Some acquire the necessary indifference to being under water almost at once. When it is ac quired, let the bather select a place'where the water is just deep enough for him to sit upon the bottom with head and shoulders out of water. Then let him take a full breath, distending the lungs, and placing his arms by his sides, lie down on his back on the bottom. If unsuccessful, partially expel the air from the lungs and try again. After having found out by actual experiment how easy it is to lie...

WOODLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 24 December 1887
WOODLANDS. A.nox the suburban watering .places none is likely to take a higher liosi tion in public favour than lorhialloc. For marine residences this delightful locality is absolutely without a rival, in some very important respects. The country is undulating, varied and attractive, affording excellent views.
