It seeinB bard Jy consonant with that strict BenBs - of British jtistice, on which wo bo pride onrsdves that the two acensed in a late case should have been kept so long in con* Gueraeut awaiting their trial. Ac oording to popular belief, a person is considered innocent until pro red to be cniltr. bnt in the case ander notice. -he panisbment inflicted, nniotention ? ally of course, was conch greater be. fore the trial than after — thus very ranch reversing tbe usual order of things. In justice to the police, it must be mentioned that they were blftraelesB in the matter, na they were nnable to get a Justice of the Peace to Bit on the Bench, and so were com. pelted perforce to await tbe arrival of the Magistrate.

The eueietv avers that it subsequently re captured the same fly, aiid induced him i to make tracks. 'upon sterilised potato, i iu which tracks the society traced ; bacilli.

Vagrant Notes.0 [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 3 March 1899
[Vagrant Notes. When a poet diverges a considerable distance from the truth, he does not snffer in the least in the estimation of the public. Ob dear no, all the blame is laid on that long suffering and tnysterions entity called poetical license. The poetical faculty innst loom -very large in the correspondent who furnished the news of the late fire to the Metropolitan papers, for they contain, brief though they were, more fabrication to the square inch than one would think possible. Ac cording to the veracious chroniclers, the fire must have wandered about for some little time before making up its mind in which place to start, for no less than three buildings are granted the honor of originating it. The account also went as near as it could to killing one individual, pandering perhaps to that love of blood said to be inherent in us all. Truly we go from home to bear news. *** One pleasing feature was the wil lingness of all and sundry to render what asaistanoe they could. Talk of t...

THE YARRA CRIME. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 3 March 1899
THE TARRA CRIME. Late on Saturday night tbe curtain was practically rung down on the Boot Trauk Tragedy, for, although Tod and Madame Radaleki were found guilty and sentenced to death, the recom mendation to mercy will save their neoks. Asked why the recommenda tion Was made, the jury replied that the prisoners did not intend to wil fully commit murder. Dr. Gaze was acquitted, and rightly no, as there was not a scrap of evidence support ing the Crown's contention that he Was an accessory ft the crime. As for Madame Radalski, her position is peculiarly painful. While engaged in an illegal experiment on Mabel Ambrose, the subject raysterionsly succumbed to suffocation. Medical aud surgical investigation failed to divino the cause of suffocation, and Madame Radalski evidently is as much in the dark as the doctors. The point is, however, that the girl suddenly expired during the performance, or about the period, of an illegal act. The fact made Madame technically, though not wilfully, g...
