A SPECULATION THAT DIDN'T PAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Charleville Courier — 1 August 1896

SPECULATION THAT DIDN'T PAY. It was an evil-smelling street: fried fish,     sausages, andd onions, and unwholsouce pastry breathed out their fragrance invitingly to the passers-by. In front of a small newspaper shop with illustrations in the window stood a man in a brown overcoat that was rent behind from the waist downwards. The flaps were wide apart disclosing a thick lining of wool. He looked dirty, but warm and comfortable. With his hands in his pockets and a short clay pipe in his mouth he gazed intently at the prints in the window. Daniel Crow was his name, and he was without special occupation. But this was not exactly to his mind. An extra ordinary run of luck that morning had provided him by mid- day with the sum of 2s. 6d. and he was seriously considering if he would not start himself in business. On the edge of the pavement behind him a man had set up his shop, and Daniel turned round to watch him. He was a well dressed man and evidently throve ...
