ANOTHER BIG GRAPEVINE. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 9 January 1886
'ANOTHER BIG GRAPEVINE. Last night, through the kindness of T. S. Martin, whose residence is on State street, between Cota and Haley, we were shown a grapevina that was almost at much of a curiosity as the famous Cen tennial, vine that was grown in the Mote cito, and shipped acl'osshe contincnt'i. 1876 in cars. ,At the. ground the vine measures twenty-five inches in circum ference, and whero5the vines branch out, nine fey from the gronnd, it measures twenty inches.' At the present time there are close on two tons of grapes on it, and' the fruit is large, rich andsjicey. It is of the Mission variety. The vine is seven teen years. old,land is surely a novelty in its line. Mr. ,Martin has watched its steady growth from a mere cutting up to its present size with a great deal of in terest, and it is growing at the same ratio at the present time as in'the past. The ground it covers is fifty feet square, and beneath this mammoth vine during the summer months is where his family partake of ...

A HOAX AT THE HAYMARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 9 January 1886
A HOAX AT'-IHE HAYMARKET. A cleverly executed scheme, deceiving a large number of gentlemen, was consum. mated at the HaymarketTheatro recently. The gentlemen in question each received a missive, in alady's handwriting, which ran as follows:-" Thewriter of this is anxious to have the pleasure of meeting you. She will at be the Haymarket Theatre Tuesday evening next. If you will be in the stalls you will not fail to recognise her; hut to show that this meeting is agreeable, will you wear a button-hole of violets and lillies of the valley, and she will wear scarlet geraniums? " So successful was this letter that two advertisements in the "agony" column of the Times requested the lady to send her address in confidence. About eight o'clock the first victim ap peared on the scene. Gallantly, yet cau tiously he looked round for the fair un known?; when to his dismay he noticed other men dropping in, one by one, all bearing the floral sign. Men came from Aldershot, from Brighton, and from ...

TURKEY AND EGYPT. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 9 January 1886
- TURKEY AND EGYPT. There is a sweet simplicity about tho Turkish system of Government which commends it to the conserva tive mind all the world over. "Those Turks are deuced gentlemanly fol lows, by jovo; calm and quiet, and deuced brave by Jove, " says .Do Jones, whose idea of a gontloman is founded upon the fancy portraits drawn by Ouida and labelled "Guardsman," and he straight begins to hum the Jingo song, which tells you that "the Russians shall not have Constantinople," and presently delivers himself of the opinion, " As for Egypt, don't cher Imow; best thing to do hand it over to Turks, by Jove! They know how to manage them" - them being Egypt or the Egyptians or anything else you like, Do Jones's ideas being as loose as his grammar. The Con-" servative party in England concluded through Sir H. DvUrMMOND Woarn a. treaty which settled the fate of Egypt after the Do Jones fashion, and now the Ministers of the Svurra desire to apply their governing theor ies in their own calm, ...
THE WHARF LABOURERS' STRIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 9 January 1886
THE WHARF LABOURERS' STRIKE. At a meeting of wharf labourers hold on Thursday, in Melbourne, the large sum of £200 was voted, not: 'to tho men now on strike, for they do not intend to throw themselves on the funds of the union for three weeks, but to buy off the men the shipownors are importing from other colonies.' it is remarkable that the Melbourne Argus begins a paragraph in which this news is given with the statement "that no now development has taken place." We certainly cannot agree with our contem porary. We consider that a very nove and a most important development of the movement took place in the very moment when that motion was passed, for the workmen have actually found them selves able to imitate the employers' tactics, to meet them on their own ground, and bring money to work against money. Time was when strikes meant starvation. Time is when they mnan organisation, brains, resolution, trained skill, and garnered means, carefully expended. Once the strike was an exhib...
DANGER IN OUR MIDST. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 9 January 1886
DANGER IN OUR MIDST. A week ago in Melbourne forty thousand gallons of kerosene took fire and burned for hours with a flame seventy feet long, thirty feet wide, and two hundred feet high. What sort of a body of flame may we expect at some early dite in thia city of Sydney, where, at this very moment, in. one warehouse at. Miller's.Point;. thirty thousand gallons of kerosene •are .stored in close- contiguity to the. discharging steamers, practically next door to the Ice Company's Works, and in the very midst of a hundred different sources of possible fire? To' make the matter better the tins in which the kerosene is con tained have proved defective, and now, while we write, are being re-soldered. -Thus, one who knows the nature. of kerosene, will clearly understand that in this weather especially, the danger of' keeping it at all is enormous. When a quantity like thirty thousand gallons is dealt with, the operation is of a most dangerous and delicate nature. Kerosene at avery low tem...

The followingq appea;ed last night in our .Third Edition. INTERGOLONIAL TELEGRAMS. MELBOURNE, Tins .DAT. .eavy rain fell all over the colony yes terday, throughout the night, and is con tinuing this morning. Two inches 37 points fell yesterday. The Melbourne average January rainfall is lin. 20 points. Heavy floods occurred at Ballarat, where Sin. 30 points fell in about 30 hours. Ballarat was under water for hours. The premises of the - shopkeepers were flooded, the Yarroweo channel torn up, and immense damnagel done, causing a con siderable amount' of live stock to be drowned, and one man narrowly escaped the loss of his life. The hay crops and cereals throughout Victoria will suffer seriously by the downpour. A gale has been blowing on the western coast. Fourimonwere blown out tosecain two boats, near Portland, but. succeeded in regaining the rocks in a dingy, and were subsequently rescued.

COUNTRY TELEGRAMS. TAMWORTH, THIS DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 9 January 1886
COUNTRY TELEGRAMS. LFROM OUR OWN CORRESl'ONOENnrs. TAMWOILT1I, TnuR DAY. The Quarter Sessions terminated to-day. Judge Murray passed the following seon tences:-Edward Rogers, for illegally using a horse, two months' imprisonment; Rowland Wells, for illegally using a horse and stealing a saddle, 12 months; William Chapman, illegally using a horse and escaping from the police, seven months; James Bowick, embezzlement, two years; H. E. Smith, forgery and uttering, two years and ton months; James Barrett, an aboriginal, charged with stealing from the person, was acqluitted. The District Court commences to-day. The business set down for hearing is not of much importance. The two medicos who gave evidence in tihe assault case Hooke versus Mills, which was of a very contradictory character, have set the law in motion for the purpose of vindicating themselves. .The mail service between Tamworth and Gunnedah, which for many years was carried on by Mr. George Ross, has, since the new year, bo...
COUNTRY NEWS. SUNNY CORNER. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 9 January 1886
COUNTRY NEWS. (BY OUR OWN CORRESPONDENTS.) SUNNY CORNElR. Strikes at any time are objectionable, especially in a new undeveloped mining district as the labour that is there are union men, and those that come there if they are not, it will be made very hot for them. There are two sides to this miners strike, for and against, for had the miners addressed themselves to the directors their cause would have doubtless been satisfactorily settled; or had they a manager with practical mining quali__ tion, one accustomed to working in the mine and who could, on a practical basis, show them the error of their way, and lead instead of drive, things would take a dif- ferent turn. The present manager may be theoretically perfect, but one ounce of practice is worth a thousand pounds of theory. It is not a collegiate man that is required to manage a mine. "Practice and theory" are wide apart, and the latter utterly useless in superintending a mine and dealing with practical men. It would be just a...

A RICH CROSSING SWEEPER. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 11 January 1886
A RICH CROSSING SWEEPER. In the first quarter of this century there lived in London sa old man who used to sweep a crossing near St. James's Park, of whom a very singilar story is told. This old crossing sweeper,' whatever was the amount of almsbestowed upon him, always used only to retain a halfpenny and return the rest to the donor. This strange cus tom having become known, procured him many halfpennies. It happened one day that the late Mr. Simcox, of Harbourne, near Birmingham, a nail ''manufacnturer, who was in the habit of going frequently to London on business, was surprised by a lieavy shower while in the streets. ' He took refuge under an archway, andl had stood there some time waiting for the storm to pass over, when the door of a handsome house opposite was opened, and a footman in livery, wIith an Smbrella in his hand, crossed the street, and presenting his mastei's compliments, requested Mr. Simcox to take shelter in the house. That gentleman gladly ac cepted the invita...
