MY FIRST EXPERIENCE WITH 'SMASHERS.' [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 7 July 1888
MY FIRST EXPERIENCE WITH 'SMASHERS.' BY AN E D)TEO rIVz. The oase of Olaydon v. Laroom was a I very uncommon case,.and. as it was she cause Iof my first experience with ' smashers,' or makers of base money, it is necessary that I bshould mention it before I describe the events in which I took part. Mr. Cilaydon appeared to be; sigulaerly unfortunate in his cash transactions with the people who traded with him. Several of those from whom he received payments succeeded in passing bad money into his hands, and as, in every case, the base coloas were counterfeit sovereigns, he was exposed to very serious lose. A few actnal losses of this kind caused him to look very closely at all the gold he recesived, and to adopt another plan by which he might trace the base coin to the source from which it had come into his possessielon, When he received cash payments for his goods he made of each sum so received a little packago, and on the outsialde of the paper wrapper marked the amount, the date...

THE TRANSPLANTATION OF NERVE (TIMES, MAY 22). [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 7 July 1888
TEE TRANS1LANTrAT1uN OF NERVE (Tums, xAt 221. The operation was performed by Dr. Gersung, of Vieooa, and the patient was Professor von Flechl, the distinguished ocoaupant of the Chair of Physiology in.the University of that city. It appears that Dr. von Fleiechl, sixteen years ago, accidentally wounded himself while conducting a post mortem examination, and that the conse quaent severe inflammation of his right arm and hand led ultimately to the loss of the terminal joint of his thumb. The end of the stump hbtome painful, and, in the hope of relieving this pain, amputation somewhat further back was performed, but was followed, according to the report, by the formation of " neuromata." At this point the history becomes a little vague, because the word " nourome," which is most properly applied to a class of tumours which form upon nerves, and which consist mainly of redundant nerve tissue, is applied with less exactness to tumoure of other hinds of which nerves may be the seat, and i...

TOURNAMENTS OF GLUTTONS. (CASSELLL'S SATURDAY JOURNAL.) [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 7 July 1888
TOURNAMENTS OF GLUTTIONS. (oz.ssar.'a 5AxURDAY J*,WMEAL.) Tenurnaments of gluttone were not uncom mon up to fifty or sixty year. ago. 201b. of cherries are said to have been eaten at one sitting by a competitor at one of these en counters. She was a young girl, and gained the day; but she did not long survive her victory. At Portemonth a soldier of the Dutch artillery tried for a trifling wager to eat a pound and a half of beef while standing on his head. He bad disposed of a considerable portion, when all at once his comrades observed him making strange faces, and on turning him no he gasped and died. . At Fareham. a smell town a few miles distant from Portsmouth, a labourer ate for a wager a bullook's head, weighing 101b., with a gallon of potatoes, half a gallon of turnips, and the whole of the soup fthe boiling. But perhaps the greatest achievement in these uncleanly competitions was that of a certain Jerry Eke, a Norfolk man, whose powers at hbar vest suppers were the boast and...

A MEAN MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 7 July 1888
A MEAN MAN. The meanest man on record jumped aboard a tram oar the other afternoon. Every seat was occupied, and what did that man do bu look one of a window and whisper something about a dog fight. Of course no man could k.ep his seat under esuch a provocation. When Brown had looked in vain for the dog fight, he also looked in vain for his seat. it was completely hidden by that mean man, who was so deeply interested in his paper as to be wholly oblivious of everything elee. But Brown had his revenge. A lady soon entered, and before anyone could offer her a seat, he punched up the mean man and said: 'Will you please give this lady a sent, sir?', Then they hung on to the straps and glow. ered at each other until their brows ached.

THE LADIES' COLUMN. ABOUT BOOKS. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 7 July 1888
ULE LADIES' COLUMN. BY "YVrkA." ABOUI BOOKS. Not unfrequently I resolve letters naking a very difficult question, viz,, what sort of books should be read to improve the mind ? " What shall I read to lift me out of myself ?' asked a correspondent once In expressive, if not grammatloal language. She meant, " How shall Imake new interests in life by reading? how shall I croate a world for myself where Ican retire at will, and forget the 'thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to'?" This is not a question to be answered off hand. It is, of course, easy to create an imaginary world by reading a number of sensational novels, that give distorted and false views of life, but this is not the sort of reading that is caloulated to make our everyday lives brighter and happier. "Books," says one poet, "are a substantial world both good and true," but another poet reminds us that The world of books i stull the world, And worldlises in it are less merelful And more polesent. For the wl ked the...
