" But about counting it P" interrupted Pearce. " It is chiefly for that reason f have selected this place, for there is little fear that you will be disturbed here at mid night counting the plunder. People do not care about passing their nights in graveyards." "The idea is certainly a good one," rejoined Pearce.

Charleville Courier. SATURDAY, AUGUST 15, 1896. A LIBERAL FRANCHISE. [Newspaper Article] — The Charleville Courier — 15 August 1896
8$>d*v9!» innt SATURDAY, AUGUST 15, 1896. A LIBERAL FRANCHISE. If the spirit of emulation in the liberalisation of the franchise which has recently characterised the legis lation of three ont of the four oldest of the Australian colonies is to continue mnch longer, it is hard to say where it will stop. South Aus tralia, Victoria, and New South Wales are vying with each other in conferring a free and unfettered franchise on their respective citi zens and bringing about as close an approximation to equality as can possibly be arrived at by baaing the vote upon manhood and abolish ing the property votes which pre viously existed; while the Srat named colony, not content with giving every man a vote, has con ferred a similar right upon its women. From the recent eSbrta made in Victoria and New South Waleo to enfranchise the fair sex, which have only been deteated by small majorities, it is quite clear that in a short time both those colonies will fall into line on the female franchis...

Behold this apparently feeble insect. If a dan gerous adversaiy should approach, it has in re serve an acrid and corrosive fluid,by discharging ttfhich it defies its enemies."
