A well-known scientist in puzzling over the construction of the universe i once said " give me a little matter and the first posh and the' problem is solved."

The - greater pirt of the life convicts who are good characters _MI« "self auppoiters"-fiat is, men out on ticket of leave in the settlement. These-men are allowed ta marry.. Tba convict women, on the other hand, are always kept under close supervision in the female convict gaol.
