Coal Gas and Its Rivals. No. 1. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 7 March 1882

Coal Gas and Its Rivals. 0 No. 1. Since 1860 coal gas has had to con tend with a lively and brilliant competi tor for the work of lighting our streets and houses. Petroleum under various names has been known from all time. Bat it is only within the last thirty years that it has become commercially valuable. After the discovery of the deposits of rich brown shale at Turbane Hill, Bog Head, and Lasmahago, in the west of Scotland, it was found that by .slow distillation several valuable mine ral oils could be procured; and large works specially.adapted for the manu facture of these oils were established by Mr. Young, at Bathgate,. near Glasgow. In New South Wales, also, large works have been erected for the distillation of mineral oils from the shale found in great abundance in that colony. By the time, however, that these new products had made their way into favour, another and still more remarkable discovery of immense sub terranean Lakes of Petroleum had been made in North America. ...

An Extraordinary Robbery. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 7 March 1882

An Extraordinary Robbery. An extraordinary robbery from a raspberry plantation was investigated at the West Kent quarter sessions at Maidstone recently, when a chimney sweep was indicted for stealing £52 8s, the money of James Bowen, at Knock holt, on the 11thNovember. The pro secutor was in the habit of hiding his savings in a hole dug in his raspberry plantation. The prisoner was employed to hoe the plantation, and after working for a day he suddenly left. Then the cash was missed, and suspicion at once attached to the accused, who was spending money freely. A. verdi3t of guilty was returned, and accused was sentenced to eighteen months' hard labour, and police supervision for seven years. He had been twice sent to penal servitude.

A Murderer's Stratagem. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 7 March 1882

A Murderer's Stratagem. O- -0 & Berlin correspondent, writing on 26th December, says :-A new system of garroting has been invented here by a most dangerous criminial of the name of Wilke, who, fortunately, is safe in the hands of the police. On Thursday week two men, conscience-stricken, pre sented themselves before the authori ties, accusing themselves of having con spired with a locksmith (the man Wilke) to hire furnished rooms in dif ferent parts of the town for the pur pose of extorting money in the follow ing manner :-One of them was to go to bed pretending to be ill, and send for a doctor. As soon as the physician arrived and bent over the bed, an iron collar of a special contrivance, hid beneath the counterpane, was to be applied to his neck until be had signed a bill of exchane ; then he was to be strangled, and thrown into a canal which was close at hand. Wilke had devoted 'much ingenuity to the con struction of this instrument, which they described as something lik...

Truth Stranger Than Fiction. A WOMAN KEEPS A SECRET FOR NEARLY A SCORE OF YEARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 7 March 1882

Truth Stranger Than Fiction. -0--- - A WOMAN SKEEPS A SECRET FOR NEARLY A SCORE OF YEARS. [From the " San Francisco Chronicle."] The inborn proclivity of the female sex to gossip and make trouble by knowing too much of other peoples' afflirs and too little of their own, has given rise to the moss-grown slur that a woman cannot keep a secret.. The woman who can keep a secret through a period of a score of years, without so much as allowing her husband to know of it, deserves eminently a tablet in the shrine of memory, and a few " sticks" in the columns of a newspaper. A re markable and somewhat romantic case in point has lately come to light. ~"Many yearsago," so the tale begins, there lived a family of the name of Blanco in Santa Barbara. The family was among the mlost influential and richest of the old Spanish stock, and is known all over the State. Shortly after the birth of the only daughter Mrs. Blanco was taken seriously ill and flied. Upoli her deathbed she was at tended by a ...

The German Emperor. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 7 March 1882

The German Emperor. It is a well-remembered fact that one of our kings died of eating lampreys. Germany has nearly lost her Emperor. through an overdose of lobster, which, we find out, was the cause of his late sickness. The Kaiser is exceedingly fond of this delicacy, which is not to be trifled with by a man of half his age. Nevertheless, when no one is looking, the Emperor will have his lobster, and the State secret is now diselosed that the inability of his Majesty to attend the opening of the new#Parliament was due to lobster. It is said in the neigh. bourhood of the Court that this would not have happened if Von Iauer had been alive. Von Lauer was the Em peror's doctor for half-a century, at the end of which time the illustrious patient persisted in living, and the doctor himself succumbed. He was a privileged tyrant in all that respected the Emperor's appetite, and in parti cular would not have a lobster in the Palace. His successor, a younger man and not accustomed to control...

Frauds on Insurance Companies. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 7 March 1882

Frauds on Insurance Companies. --0 Disclosures of a startling character, respecting certain extensive frauds which hvae beenperpetrated with a view of imposing upon certain insurance com panies in the city, have been brought to light lately. The companies referred to are the Australian Alliance Company and the Australian Mutual Provident Society. The surroundings of the case point to the suspicion that impersona tion has been the means used for carry ing out the deception. It appears that in September last a firm of insurance brokers in Adelaide, Messrs Hicks and Barker, opened negotiations with the two companies above named for the in surance of the life of a man named Weatherhead. The life proving a satis factory one, and the usual conditions being complied with, policies were duly issued, by the Australian Alliance Company for £5,000 and by the Mutual Provident Society for 3,000. The transaction being concluded, Messrs. Hicks and Barker applied for and received the usual commissi...

Scene at the Wagga Sessions. JAMES KELLY IN IRONS. Wagga Wagga, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — The Horsham Times — 7 March 1882

Scene at the Wagga Sessions. -o JAMES KELLY IN IRONS. Wagga Wagga, Thursday. At the Quarter Sessions on Thurs day, before his Honour Judgo Forbes, Wild Wright and James Kelly were brought up, charged with stealing a grey mare. Kelly, it will be re membered, is undergoing a sentence of five years for stealing a mare at Coota mundra. In the present case, he and Wright were charged together with stealing a grey mare. Kelly was heavily ironed when brought into court. Mr. Pitcairn, the Crown prosecutor, drew the judge's attention to the fact that it was contrary to the principles of British justice to bring a prisoner into court in irons. His Honour directed the irons to be struck off, and said they should not be used, whether in court or out of it. He also informed the Crown prosecutor that it was useless proceed ing against Kelly, for if convicted he could only give him an hour's imprison ment, as he was already undergoing a heavy sentence. Kelly said the irons were wearing into his fl...

It appears by.his will, which, was recently proved, that..his personal estate 2amoimted to- over £215,000.. This is, a big sum for a man at the outset of life to go for, and as there are very few men who even in these brisk times of commerciail pogress ;cn show such a level record of success, it may be fairly claimed for Mr. Pond that he was a man out of ten thousand in respect of industry "and peseverdnce.'s.Hi Australian cdreer is well known to most. of. s, arid some o uis remember how the firm with which he'"as k?asociated in troduced a team of cricketers to Mel bourne in 1862, who.imparted.quite a new life to thie noble game of "crisket.

Sir,-Herewith I havethe honour to forward report relative to. operations for extirpationoof rabbits in this dis trict. Owing to the numerous com plaints during the latter part of the past year. that the phosphorised oats were not effective, I concluded that it would be advisable to try some other material.
