DAYS OF CRIME AND YEARS OF SUFFERING --------♦-------- AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY. Reprinted from "The Australasian" of 1867 by special permission) CHAPTER. XXII. SUSPECTED, BUT GUILTLESS. Seven happy months flew swiftly by; &nbsp; my pupils were a source of constant inter- est to me, and were as docile and loveable as heart could wish. Their progress was most encouraging to me, and their parents were more than satisfied with the results &nbsp; of my tuition. Those seven months were the happiest and best-employed of all the months that I have lived. But a change was near at hand, and this bright vista in my existence was fast being closed upon by the old dark shadows. A horse was always placed at my dispo- sal, and when I could spare time, I was in the habit of taking a ride through the coun- &nbsp; try round about. On one of these occa- sions I called at a shepherd's hut which was situated at the foot of some ranges about ten miles distant from the public &nbs...

The Leader. JUSTICE TO ALL. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1887. OUR ANNUAL CRAZE. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 29 October 1887
JUSTICE TO ALL. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1887. OUR ANNUAL CRAZE. j TIE time was when horse racing was indulged in for the sole love of sport. That day has gone by, and now the moving spring of the whole concern is the desire to fatten on other peoples' money. There could be no great harm in testing which hdrse could poke his nose in before another in a " square race," providing undue severity and barbarism- were not ap plied in the shape of whip and slur, but horse racing, as it is to-day, is little better. than a gigantic swindle. The whole thing has become satur ated with fraud, and the public know it. Recontly it has been stated that over £20,000,000 changes hands annually over this so-called sport. Young' mnmen;-and i- maidlens, -old- men 'and women, and even: the prisoners in their cells, 'indulge their passion for gambliig. Gambling over horse-raci?ig is certainily no' worse ini principle than some of the pious swindling at Church Bazaars. But this says little in its favor. The p...

Amateur Ballooning. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 29 October 1887
Amnatecur Ballooning. As nearly as could be judged, I was more than a mile high, and all sounds from the earth had censed. There was a death-like silence which'was simply awful. It seemed to my overstrained nerves to forbode disaster. The ticking of the watch in my pocket sounded like a trip.hammer. I could feel the blood as it shot through the veinsof my head and arms. My straw hat and the wil low car snapped and cracked, being con tracted by the evaporation of the moisture in them, and by the fast-cooling tempera ture. ' ' I was compelled to breathe a little quicker than usual, on account of the rarity of the atmosphere. I became sensible of a loud, monotonous hum in my ears, pitched about on the middle O of the piano, which seemed to bore into my. head from each side, meet ing in the centre .with a pop; then for an in stant my head would be clear, when the same experience would be repeated. By throwing out small pieces of tissue paper, I saw that the balloon was still rapidly asc...
