The Anarchists of Paris. London, April 27. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 3 May 1892
The Anarchists of Paris. ? London, April 2 Ravacliol and Simon have been found, prnilty. Extenuating circumstances were pleaded on Ravachol's behalf, and their sen tences were reduced to penal servitude for life. The other accomplices were acquitted. M. Jagasso, Ravachol's counsel, amid the loud disapproval of the court, concluded his defence by warning the jury that if sentence of death were passed, new attempts would be made on themselves, and urged that the accused were charged with only a political offence. The sentence has created a great surprise. The sentence of imprisonment for life, passed by the Judge on Ravacliol, does not satisfy the boiirflroixic of Paris, who had ex pected a sentence of death. On his way from the gaol to the Palace of Justice, Ravaohol was cscorted by n strong guard of the military. Ravachol's counsel, in an eloquent address, stated a verdict of death against his client would lead to fmthcr outrages by the Anarchists, and harm to the jurymen. The Press...

ARBOR DAY AT HARCALDINE. LAST Friday was a special school holiday throughout the colony for the annual celebra tion of Arbor Day. l'"or some time past prepa rations have bneii made at Harcaldine for the proper observance of this festival, and the public subscribed very handsomely towards the cost of entertaining the children. Ill the morning twenty trees were planted, consisting of lioop pine, bauliinia, cedar, and the llurde kin plum. This makes about sixty shade trees in the grounds, including those "which were planted during the three years since Arbor Day became an institution of the colony. The whole proceedings were a great success. The earlv part of the day was spent in sports, in cluding races for small sums of money; but it was not, until luncheon time that the real busi ness of pleasure commenced. Considering there were about 300 children to be fed, the demands made upon the school teachers would have been rather heavy, but they had the good sense to order the cakes and co...

SNOW ON THE BARCOO. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 3 May 1892
SNOW ON THE BAHCOO. THE summer of 1891-2 will bo remembered for a considerable time as one of the hottest since the hot summer of 1881-2. Hot summers, as a rule, are followed by very cold winters, and we have no reason to think that the ap proacliinfr winter is to be an exception to the rule. Although several croakers have pre dicted that there will he .1 fall of snow on the 1 liarcoo this season, we do not think there will; but we anticipate a very cold winter, for which every person should be prepared with warm Clothing, Blankets, &c., &c. Persons who have not already supplied themselves should call at T. CAIN'S, Barcaldinc, and Becure some genuine bargains.* THE RIVALS.

The Mechanism of Man. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 10 May 1892
The Mechanism of Has, A max has with him a working pump called liis heart, a working bellows called hia lungs, a working vat called his Btomach, a working condenser called hia brain, and a working evaporator called his skin, all of which must he at work whether he will or not. The heart is expending over his body day by day. He will go on lifting ho many millions of tons in so many years. If he meet with no accid ent, the time will come when his last stroke will be finished and he will die, or he may be carried off in earlier life by disease, wluch, however slight in its early stages, works like a ferment. The symptoms may scarcely be noticeable-a little laziness, slight headaches or backaches-but the cause is always at work. Take a handsome rosy cheeked young man, full of life and hope, let a germ disease enter his system, it is invisible, too small to be weighed; judged by the evidence of the senses it is too insignificant to he thought of, but it extendi indefinitely.

WATER IN THE EAST. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 10 May 1892
WATER IN THE EAST. The bore at Mr. Richardson's selection, seven miles east of Barcaldine, was down 300 foet yesterday. At 130 feet fresh water was tapped, and tlie .supply rose to the top of the pipe, which is three feet above the ground. On Sunday this water flowed over the surface at the ordinary level. In connection with the search for artesian water in the desert country, it is a curious fact that the last bore put down on Coreena run was situated twelve miles from the black soil plains. The bore was carried down 2QQQ feet without tapping a sup ply of water, when further operations were abandoned. When Mr. King decided upon putting down tliis bore he was cautioned bv a gentleman resident in this district, who has had some experience in choosing sites for boring, that it was a dangerous experiment going in for deep sinking on the desert coun try, giving as his reason the probability of the bore being put down outside the basin con taining the artesian supply. Mr. King thought he...
THE WINDSOR MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 10 May 1892
THE WINDSOR MURDER DEKMINQ'S trial was ended last Tuesday, and after his counsel had finished he addressed the jury for an liour. The jury returned a verdict of guilty, and in response to Deeming's request, twice urged, the Judge made no comments on the verdict or address to the prisoner, but simply passed the sentence of death upon him. Deeming was then removed to the gaol, where he was dressed in convict's clothes, heavily manacled, and placed in the condemned cell. Our later telegrams mention that Mr. Lyle has petitioned the Executive for a commuta tion of the death sentence on the grounds that his late client was morally irresponsible for his actions. It is not probable that this will have any effect upon the Executive, and the death sentence is likely to be carried out on Monday next. It is rumored that Deeming has confessed to the time and manner of his crimes.
