A NEW PIANOFORTE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 January 1879

A NEW PIANOFORTE. ? . 1 A useful invention is that of Mi'. W. Percival, of Queen's Road, Bnyswater, !' which reduces the pianoforte to port ] able dimensions, and enables the per ( former to play it in the most easy and j comfortable position. Instead of the I kt-vs beinc arranired in a horizontal plane, tliey are placed vertically on each side of the instrument, which is strung on both sides of the back, and some of the notes are duplicated, so that forte effects can be readily pro duced in the centre of the register. The keys are exactly tlie same as ill the ordinary instrument, the lowest bass being placed at the bottom on the left hand, and the highest treble note at the bottom of the right hand clavier. Four and a half octaves are placed on each side, and some of the top keys strike strings in unison. The compass is seven octaves, as usual, lint about twenty of the upper keys give the. same note ; so that the instrument can be played on either side, or oil both at once. The ins...

Holloway's Pills. — Mind and body are so closely eutertwined that for tlie former to be vigorous the latter must be healthful. The first step towards the maintenance of health is to secure perfect digestion, which is readily obtained by this noted medicine, the most competent effectually to restrain every adverse influence which can mar, impair, or vexatiously modify this all important process, The student, roer chftut, niaii of pleasure, and humblest labourer may each in turn derive vigour, ease, and strength from occasional doses, or a longer course of Holloway's purifying Pills.

THE MANSFIELD MURDERERS. ARREST OF SEVEN SUSPECTED ACCOMPLICES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 8 January 1879

J THE MANSFIELD MURDERERS, j Arrest of Seven Suspected Ac complices. On Friday evening Melbourne was thrown into an unusual state of excite ment consequent upon the receipt of telegrams announcing the capture of one of the Kelly gang of outlaws. The J news flew about with remarkable | celeritv. aud it was not Ions' before the most absurd and freely exaggerated rumours were on the lips almost of every person to be met with. The desperado whom it was believed liad at last fallen into the clutches of the police was the fellow Steve Hart, and it is somewhat curious how preceding events calculated to add probability to the alleged occurrence. From the intelli gence received from Benalla, which was published yesterday morning, it could be gathered that the authorities were in possession of some information rela tive to the gang, and that either the capture of the miscreants or an en counter with them might be expected at any moment. Then again, later in the afternoon, it was reported that...

Oris forefathers were indeed wise in their generation when they ouimitted I from their representative types the I iiguve of Law. Justice, with lier | bandaged eyes, her sword aud suspended i .scales, cuts a rather incongruous figure I at times when slis is ranged beside reality. Law, probably would appear to tbe most advantage masked in a harlequin suit, and with the magical vaud of the pantomime sorcerer in its hand. Or, occasionally, in cap and bells, with the broadest of grins on its face, aud ever ready for a doublesomer sault to astonish all beholders. Assum ing the District Coroner's law, as expounded at the inquest held upon the body of the unfortunate lad Dyson, to be right, the law is a very funny thing indeed. The jury were informed that there was not the slightest doubt that the sad occurrence was purely acci dental, but because it happened on Sunday, on which day it is unlawful to shoot, the boy Worthy was guilty of manslaughter, aud there was no option for them but to r...
