HOW IT PAYS TO TAKE A NEWSPAPER. [Newspaper Article] — The Carcoar Chronicle — 22 July 1882

BOW IT PAYS TO TAKB A NEWSPAPER. Some papers are not of much account as to appearance, but I never took one that did not pay me, in some way, more than I paid for it One time an old friend started a little paper away down in South-western Georgia and sent it to me, and I subscribed just to encourage Mm, and after a while it published a notice that an administrator had an order to sell several lots at public outcry, and one of the lots was in my county. , So I inquired about the lot, and wrote to my friend to attend the sale and run it uji to fifty dollars. He did bo and bid me off the lot for thirty dollars, and j sold it in a month to a man it joined for a hundred dollars, and so I made sixty-eight dollars clear by taking that paper. My father told me that when he was a young man he saw a notice in a paper that a school teacher was wanted away off in a distant country, and he went there and got the situation, and a little girl was sent to him, and after a while she grew np mighty s...

MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS. BANK ROBBERY AT GRAFTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Carcoar Chronicle — 22 July 1882

MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS. BANK BOBBERY AT G1LAFT0K. : The South Grafton branch of the Australian Joint Stock Bank was robbed on Friday morning, at about 4 o'clock, in a singularly bold and audacious manner. The acting manager, a young man named Angus M. M'Bride, does not sleep on the premises, and it appears that he was the only person in charge of the establishment. At the hour named he was awakened by a man in his bedroom, who presented a revolver at mm, and demanded to have the Bufe of the bank opened. M'Bride said he had not got the keys. The robber replied, ' You must have them, because no one else is in the bank,' and ordered M'Bride to get up and dress without making any noise. The robber then compelled M'Bride to accompany him to the bank, and made him open the safe from which he took £2900, of which about £400 consisted of specie. He looked over the notes, a great many of which had never been issued. These comprised a large number of £10 and £b notes. The cheques he would not to...

REASONABLE CAUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Carcoar Chronicle — 22 July 1882

BKABOHABLB CAUSE. Much astonishment has been caused among the barristers and newspapers of St. Louis, in the United States, by the ruling of Judge Laugbiih, of the Criminal Court of that city, on the occasion of a trial of a man named Rielly for the murder of a man named Hatch. ' If,' said the Judge, ' Hatoh gave Bielly reasonable cause to believe that he was going to kill him, Bielly, in law, was justified in hunting up Hatch and killing him; because the law does not require that a man should wattp-iQr his opponent might meet him in the street with a double-barrel shot-gun,' In an interview with a reporter, he repeated the language. ' This dootrine is simply unassailable,' ho said j -( the opposite would subject any man to constant danger of the asBBSsinV deadly bullet or dagger, and in every caw gives to tbe latter the com manding advantage.' The 'Globe Demo crat' gives the contrary views of a number of judges and lawyers; but, in the meantime, the prisoner in the* case-has profit...

SMALL BOY. Probably the smallest boy ever known lives in America at Norwich, N.Y.''' He is thus described by the correspondent of an American paper: — ' We went to see him, expecting a Tom Thumb, or Commodore Nutt to walk in before us. Imagine our surprise wuen his graudmotlier brought him as one would a good sice cat. He is not as large as ono of Tom Thumb's legs. In Tom Thumb's carriage ho. would look as lonesome as any ordinary man ine cirens band waggon.

MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS. A QUESTION OF HANGING. [Newspaper Article] — The Carcoar Chronicle — 29 July 1882

MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS. A QUESTION OF HAKGING. For flowers of rhetoric, the Municipal Council of Alexandria must be allowed to carry off the palm. Last Wednesday, nays the 'Echo,' the question of hanging came under consideration — not the hanging of an alderman, but the hanging of a door which had been nude to open outwards, so tlmt in case of fire the goeple who might rush to the portals should not be blocked in. Mi Alder man Wood ventnred mildly to assert that the uff»ir was free from hole-and-corner work, lie did not mean that the door was round, hut that it had been made on the square. The expression, however, seemed to possess some sharp points, for it made one of the aldermen cry out; Imt the way he was sacrificed by the Mayor was a caution. Fignratively speaking, Iris Worship danced around him with a tomahawk, «nd took off his scalp. The scene between Dan O'Oonnell and the Billingsgate Ssherwoman was mild in comparison with it. He said there waa «n alderman who had ap disgraced ...
