PALACE OF THE UNFIT A MODERN WORKHOUSE. WORMWOOD SCRUBS. Mr P. A. M'IConzle writes in tlie Lon -don 'J-aily Mall' of 16th March:— The most splendid, showy and com Portable building in Hammersmith to day is the new workhouse at Worm wood Scrubs. It Is the last word In in stitutions of Its kind, the most costly in England, and the envy of local authori ties everywhere. Its sick accommodation surpasses that of most of tho loading voluntary hos pitals. Its silvered hot-water heaters would not disgrace the balls of tlie Carlton or of the Savoy. Its kitchens are the finest I have ever seen, rivalling those of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, in New York. Its tessellated halls would_ adorn West End mansions. The new establishment was only opened on 1st December last. Ham mersmith can claim, without dispute, to have the most perfect poor law estab lishment in the country. It wilt ; ac commodate 83S perspns, and the total cost will be L234.000. There is abund ant room for extension, and, at the ra...

A DOG STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 2 June 1906

A DOG STORY. A new and true addition to the endless ' string of dog stories is told by a corres pondent of the 'Westminster Gazette' in a country village on the Continent. The village innkeeper had trained his dog to go every day at a certain hour and fetch his master's paper from the office where It was printed. One day on hi3 way home the dog met an old enemy; tho two engaged in a fight, and the news paper came to grief. When his foe had slunk away the victor, with an anxious look In his eyes, stood over the tatters. At that moment a gentleman, holding a foreign paper, came into view, walking leisurely along, and the dog at once and without a sign o£ agitation, took hold of it and carried it to his master, whose astonishment at receiving a foreign paper gave way to pride and vainglory when the victim of this example of shameless highway robbery, who. had followed the dog, laughingly explained the situation.
