The Storyteller. A SLEEPING-CAR TRAGEDY. (By W. L. Alden in the " Idler.") The through express, consisting almost en tirely of sleeping-cars, had just passed through Jericho station. The station-master gased after the rapidly receding train which, at a little distance, was nearly hidden by a folowing cloud of dust. Then turning to 4t0, and dropping heavily into a chair, he re marked, "That's what people now-a-days call ' comfort in travelling,' I ut gimme an old fashion ordinary car every time." " Then you don't like sleeping-cars ?" said 1. No. sir ! I don't. When I'm travelling by night I want to be my own master. If I want to smoke. I want to be where I can smoke, and if I want to sit by the window and chew tobacco, I want a window ac cordingly. Now when you travel in a sleeping-car at night what happens! Why you have to turn into a berth whether you want to or not, and you have to give up your boots and you can't get 'em again till morn ing; and you can't smoke, an d you haven't...

St. Patrick's Day in Kal goorlie. The anniversary day of the patron saint of Ireland was very successfully cele brated in Kalgoorlie on Tuesday.

TELEGRAPHIC. PERTH, March 16. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 19 March 1896

TELEGRAPHIC. PERTH, March 16. The premises of Instone and Co., plumbers, Fremantle, were burglariously entered on Friday night, but the enter prise proved disappointing to the bur glar. An investigation showed that entrance was effected from the yard through the side door being opened with a skeleton key. The house was thoroughly ransacked and a number of papers were strewn about the floor. The cash-box contained only seven pence in money, which was ab Atracted, and was found in an inverted position upon the office table. A clock was appropriated by the thief. No attempt was made to tamper with the safe, probably owing to the fact that any attempt in that direction would possibly have attracted the attention of passers by. The City Council have written to the Premier asking ft r a reply to the re quest made to him by a deputation which waited upon him some time ago with regard to water-works. The Pre mier has not replied, but he probably will ask the Council to state definitely what...

THE AUSTRALIAN TEAM. (BY TELEGRAPH.) SYDNEY, March 11 At the match which was brought to a conclusion yesterday there was a very fair sprinkling of spectators, and £48 was taken at the gates. The weather was bright and sunny but the rain on Monday night affected the wicket. The pitch, however, was not so bad as it was supposed to be, and, after the first few overs, the batsmen were able to watch the ball. It certainly was. no worse than on Friday morning. Forty-nine runs were wanted to win. Giffen was suffering *'severely from sciatica in the back and could not bend with the pain. It was his inten tion to go in last if only a few runs were needed, but so well did Gregory and Johns play that the runs were hit off without the loss of the ninth wicket. After the play Mr Arthur Bray, one of the committee of the Sydney cricket ground, proposed the health of the teams.

LONDON, March 16, 6.25 p.m. In connection with the expedition of British and Egytian troops to Dongala, the North Stafford regiment starts on Friday up the Nile to Wady Halfa, from whence it will march to Don- gala. Numbers of the officers and men who were engaged in the Ashantee campaign have volunteered for service in connection with the latest Soudan expedition. The German newspapers refer to the expedition as an attempt on the part of England to obtain a firmer foothold in Egypt, and sneer at the whole proceedings. The Italian news papers express themselves as grateful to England, believing that the opera- tions of the British and Egyptian troops will cause a diversion in their favor as regards Abyssinia. The Egyptian authorities request £5,000,000 from the reserve fund to defray the cost of the expedition to Dongala. The French newspapers strongly resent the action that has been taken by England and Egypt, asserting that...
