I J THE BLACK SQUAD. t" ± FIVE MINUTES IN A LINER'S STRONGHOLD. An inferno, all smoke and heat and fire and nakedness. As you enter it, picking your way over the burn ing- ashes, the hot blast from the fur nace-mouths smites you in the face ; it scorches your eyes and scars your.' lungs with every gasping breath you draw. Your impulse is to turn and fly. life seems impossible in such an atmosphere. P. nd yet the inferno hums with lifo and strenuous, almost savage, indus try. Opposite the huge -boilers, quivering with suppressed power, like so man/ th.lined giants, are th? ■'inures of men as if. carved in ebony, •Ibten n.; with the sweat that streams from every pore. They are working furiously, with muscles swelling and knotting as if they would burst throirrh th. ir sheath of skin-humnns in quick succeeding poses of fierce la bour v hkh would delight the eye of 'he sculptor md baffle his skill.

DIFFICULT TO CURE. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 17 February 1914

DIFFICULT TO CURE. A woman consulted on oculist about her husband's eyesight, saying she wanted a very-strong pair of glasses for him. "I fear I cannot recommend glasses without first seeing your husband," the oculist said. "He -won't come at any price," was tho reply. "Then tell me something about him. Can he see objects at a distance, or docs he esperknee difficulty when reading ? For instance, could uc sec that pigeon flying above us ?" "Kather," the woman said. He'd spot a pigecn on lh' w.ing quicker than he'd see a aeroplane, especially if he'd got a bet cn it. What I wants yer to cure is his short-sight edness when he's looking for a job. He's been looking for work the last ten years, and never got any to suit his fastidious eyesight vet !"

DRINK AND DRIVERS' WITS [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 20 February 1914

DRINK AND DRIVERS* WITS i — i A verdict of "Manslaughter was re turned yesterday by the Cor°^®r,® at the inquest on the two victims of the motor-lorry accident .in the Old Kent road last week (reports The Daily News," December 9). The jury expressed the opinion tnat the driver of the lorry, a man named George Clevett, "drove at a rapid speed whilst under the influence of drink." Several witnesses described the pace of the lorry (a brewery vehicle) as ex cessive or reckless, but one witness, an L C.C. tram conductor, did not con sider that the driver was to blame, while others declared that he did his best to avoid an accident Interesting evidence was given in support of the allegation that Clevett was under the influence of drink. A constable who arrested him after the accident declared that the man was drunk—that he was very unsteady, smelt strongly of drink, and was very thick in his speech. Another police wit ness added that Clevett looked dazed. He did not attribute his conditio...

FINGER= PRINT SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION RECORD. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 20 February 1914

FINGER PRINT SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION1- RECORD. English detectives are astonished by the fact that, though the Paris police were in possession o£ an infallible clue, in the form of a finger-print on the glass of the discarded frame, to the identity of the man who stole "La Gio conda," from the Louvre two years ago, no arrest was made until last Friday (says "The Daily Mail" of December 16). "In France," said a prominent au thority yesterday, "although the police take finger-prints, they depend chiefly on physical measurements, which they classify and file. If tliey arrest a man they can by his measurements identify him with former crimes, but they are somewhat at sea unless an arrest has been made. In England the finger-print is the eliief form of identification; the ordinary measurements are taken, but they are of secondary importance. Give us a fair finger-print, and if the maker ' of that print has been in the hands of the police before we can in 999 cases out of 1000 tell you who h...
