A PRACTICAL JOKE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 7 September 1882

A PRACTICAL JOKE. ----------- Considerable amusement has been afforded, to the police especially, by a practical joke played upon one of the force,by an ex-member, who, since his retirement, has adopted the more lucrative trade of a publican. The ex constable, it seems, has been much annoyed of late by domiciliary visits paid to him by a certain officer, who apparently sought to catch him in the net of selling liquor on Sundays. Boniface complained of these intrusions to a well-known member of Parliament, who, having listened to his story, advised him to "doctor" some grog and lay a trap for the officious officer. This advice was acted on, and a bottle con taining aperient medicine of a patent nature, coloured so as to resemble. rum, was placed on the shelf for use, if. re quired. 'On. a Sunday. morning re cently, a poor thirsty-looking woman amight have been seen lhurriedly leaving tle , hotel. kept by the worthy ex constable'., ' Looking cautiously about as she left the door, she ...

Twice the 'at got away, but was again caught, and in trying again to compel her to stay with the kittens Mlr.

The marks made by the- teeth of the cat were very small, but the blood spurted freely from them. A daughter of Mr Speyer tied his thumb insa rag, thus stopping the flow of bloo...

In recognition of his merits, many of the most pro miuesntcitizens of Victoria who were able to be present at the banquet given to him, attended, and all were agreed. to do honor to one of Australia's most foremost statesmen, who, after an in terval of many years, which were spent in Sydney, had made a tour of Europe and America, had allowed himself an opportunity of contrasting the tradi tions of the old world with the expe riences of those who were engaged in founding one or more empires or dominions in this southern hemisphere.
