The Morphia Fiend. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 21 March 1890
The morphia Fiend. Under this very suggesting heading, s writer in the Pall Mall Gazelle gives us a very graphio description of the morphia habit, which is apparently growing among the community at an alarming rate, and causing devastation to body and soul in a degree whioh can only be. estimated and realised by those who have the misfortune to witness its effects apon the unfortunate creatures addicted to its use. Imagine (aaya the writer) an instrument about the size of a pencil case, constructed somewhat after the model of a wasp's sting, and fitting into a. tiny case which will go with ease in the muff, the waistcoat pocket, or the bosom of the dress. The instrument itself may be of gold, and the case may bc fashioned like a jewelled scent-bottle or other trinket, and hang suspended from a golden chatclane with thc most innocuous air. Thia is the injactor, and a slight punctuation of the skin with the waspish point is sufficient to enable the required quantity of the magic liqui...

Several hundreds of people have been rendered destitute, and food and clothiug is being distri- buted by the Government for the relief of immodiate necessities.

CHAPTER VI. AT THE "HORSE AND JOCKEY." [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian and Northern Territory Government Gazette — 21 March 1890
CHAPTER VI. AT THE " HOUSE AND JOCKEY." Thc fall which Eric Rymauscourt sus- tained scented indeed to be a fatal one. As the melancholy procession wound its way slowly along from the sceue of the disaster not a heart amongst the crowd viewed the death-like face with anything but pity. Eric was a prime favorite amongst all those gathered at the meeting, his chance of winning had been a good one and now that he was possibly breathing nut his last moments, sorrow of the deepest kind was observable. As the stretcher on which Eric lay was borne through the crowd, cager questions were asked. But as yet tho most skilled practitioner could not dare hazard an opinion a3 to thc re- sults. Strange to say, Tearaway, beyond a shaking, received no injury, and as Tipoo lcd him in his honest black face was the very picture of grief for the mast er he loved so well. The thoughts of the black and gold stripes astride in thc saddle but a minute or two ago compared sadly enough with them now. The ladie...

English & Foreign. Loudon, March 20. The Earl of Onslow wishes to resign the Governorship of New Zealand, but tho authorities are averse to the notion. Strikes on an enormous scale are taking place iu the north of Euglaud -miners, dock hands, engiueers, and other unions taking part, and evi- dently acting in concert in pursuance of a well concocted scheme of opera- tions. As a consequence the prices of gas and coal have greatly ad- vanced, nearly all the factories being closed, and business generally is at a standstill. Serious riots havo taken place among the dock strikers at Liverpool, and it was found necessary to despatch strong additional bodies of troops from London to preserve order. It is expected that the men will obtain their demands. The German Emperor has accepted Prince Bismarck's resignation, and the ex-Chancellor retires from the stage of public life. Tho Hon. White's horses are said to be doing splendid gallops, and promise to start for the big event in the p...
