Notes and Comments. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 12 April 1892

^otcfi audtotmats. It is stated that the special cable grams to the Melbourne Argus for news of the llainhill murders cost £1000. No doubt the proprietors of the paper also paid a high price for the information collected by their correspondent, which ultimately lead to the discovery of the bodies at Rainhill. THE Worker was issued on April 2nd as a weekly paper, printed with its own type, and by its own machinery. The offices have been removed to a stone building of ten rooms, situated in a locality convenient enough to town, and retired enough to be low rented. THE Worker declares that at a meet ing of a joint committee of the Workers Political Organisation Central Council and Bulimba resident labour men it was unani mously decided to recommend that Fitzgerald be supported as he was for White Queensland and one-man-one-vote. The Protectionist League has also endorsed him. Oub Casino exchange says an action claiming £5000 damages is about to be taken by a prominent magistrate on the...

How to Propose. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 12 April 1892

How to Propose. I SOME little time ago an article on tfais Interesting subject appeared in tbe columns of a contemporary. The article, purporting to be tbe production of a lady who had at tained tbe mature age of half-a-century, and inight. therefore be presumed to be competent to look at tbe matter from a dispassionate point of view. Between tbe age of seventeen and twenty-five, we are informed, men liter ally shower proposals broadcast around them. From twenty-five to thirty they restrict them selves to an average of one per annum. Dur ing the next twenty years-that is, until fifty is reached-they are generally still more slow and cautious, not to say backward, in their wooing. But after fifty a man is apt to go on multiplying bis offers till he sinks into second babyhood, or descends right into the tomb. But are these statements facts or fancics 1 We venture to think that they are fancies pare and simple. If tbey even approached tbe truth there would not be at tbis moment a bache...

A CELESTIAL VISITANT. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 12 April 1892

A CELESTIAL VISITANT. DUBIKO the week there has been visible in the early morning a bright comet in the east ern sky. It is located at the present in the constellation of Pegasus, the tail running up into Aquarius. It is situated a little north of east. The nucleus is tolerably bright, and the nebulosity is fairly luminous, although not so bright last night as it was during the middle of last week. As the moon now does not set before daybreak, it will be rather difficult to locate the comet unless its cxact position is well known. It may be found about six de grees south from the fixed star Altair on the borders of the milky way.

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 12 April 1892

MISCELLANEOUS. UPON a ccrtain memorable occasion, it 16 on record tlmt Mr. Gladstone shook bands with 350 of his admirers in the short space of fifteen minutes. This, however, is by no means the best on record. For Mr. 0rover Cleveland, it seems, whilst he was at the White House, shook bnnds with COG of Iris democraticsupporters in twenty-eight minutes whilst President Harrison actually succcedcd in polishing off, in a Bimiliir manner, 700 Methodist ministers in twenty-three minntas forty-eight seconds t So far, then, President Harrison claims to be the Champion Hand Shaker of the World, but it is rumored that several prominent American politicians hare gone into active training with a view of beat ing the Hartisonian record, should a chance present itself. The politicians might save themselves the trouble, for the Methodists have nlways been blessed with the happy knack of sbakfog hands before entering ana on leaving their places of worship.
