A Clever Dodge. A well dressed woman lately entered a Paris jeweller's shop and asked to see nome valuable gold pins. While she was examining them, a man began playing a bairel organ before the door. The musie seemed to annoy the lady, and stepping to the door, she threw a piece ni money to the man and told him ¿^SaMBJaVay, which h« did at one«. On -*-./»oii..dg to~th~e"countér"shé~said'ttlat none of the pins suited her, but that, as'some compensation for the trouble she had given, she would buy a brooch. She accordingly chose one, paid t-n francs for it, and was leaving the shop when the jeweller missed a diamond piu of great value from among those she had been examining. He accord- ingly stopped his customer, who seemed highly indignant, and insisted on the . fHoprtetorV wife searching her, which was done, but no pin was found. The jeweller then set his sister to watch the woman, who was seen to enter another jeweller's shop, and was pretending to .make a purchase, when the organ ...

Mining on the Palmer. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 2 September 1897

Mining on the Palmer. Some issues ago we published a rumour that had reached us of the finding of a "20oz. nugget at Palmer- ville ; another paper has stated that miners theie are doing so well that they have sent for their friends to share their good foi tune. A corres- pondent from near the locality, writes us denying these statements, and as this paper is mn in the interest of truth, we aie careful about making rash statements that would send men rushing to rich fields that did not exist. No matter how strong is our belief in the existence of rich deposits of gold in the Palmer district, still those men who have lately given these places a' trial report non-success. Last «vening we took the advantage of the presence in town of one whom we ascertained had just returned from the Palmer,- Mr J. Jarman, and innicted apon him a press interview, and this is what he says : "I ass nearly 50 years of age. Since the age of la I have fol- lowed the digging«, and «ra familiar with most of th...

Clifford, the fourth officer of the Scot, who jumped after the Sillybillionaire Barnato, has received £1000 for his brave effort to save the suicide. An almost general fall of rain took place in AikUvia »- fortnight ago and Mr Taveraer, the Minister for Agriculture, says that it means at least a million sterling to Victoria.

The Chillagoe Caves. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 2 September 1897

The Chillagoe Caves. [BY NOMAD] It is pretty freely admitted by those best qualified to judge that North Queens- land is particularly' well blessed in the number and variety of its beauty spots, and although it has been the writer's privilege to have visited the principal sights within the somewhat commodious area generally recognised as comprising the remote North, he has no hesitation in civing the palm for unsurpnsi-ed beauty, unique interest, and diversity of lovely objects all as it wore blended to- gether, to the Chillagoe Caves. It is of course generally considered that all humanity are more or less lovers of the sublime and the beautiful, tho question of intensity or depth of appreciation being simply a matter pf degree, but taste, for scenery like taste for whisky varies according to the disposition of the individual. So that while nur Northern coastal scenery may be all that some desire, thero are others to whom the sights of the table-land are of more than equal interest ...

The authorities in New South Wales have, it is understood, been . communicated with regarding the matter.
