A WEALTHY KLEPTOMANIAC An elderly lady named Skinner, a person of means, was recently sent to gaol in London for larceny. The punishment would have been heavy, but for proof that the lady was undoubtedly suffering from kleptomania. The charge on which she was now convicted     was of stealing gloves, and of taking a bottle of brandy, which she never drank. In her hand-bag was found over £200 in gold, and coin and notes of nearly £1000 in value were found in her premises.

Family Notices [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 9 August 1884

In Memoriam. MARION HANNAH WILLIS, dearly beloved daughter of Charles and Mary H. Willis, of   Bowral, who died July 3rd, 1884, aged 2 years and 6 months.   She sleeps beneath the violets, The little one we loved ; We miss her kiss and sunny smile, But she's happier now above. The gentle winds that down the halls   Of sacred mem'ry sweep Are whisp'ring in our anxious ears,   In loving tones, " She sleeps." She sleeps ; but still her voice is heard, It fills our hearts to-day ; It cometh from that far-off land   That lieth far away. O yes ! we think she's happier now, And sing while yet we weep, And plant new flowers upon the grave   Where our little darling sleeps. We would not keep her always — She He saw fit to take ; She was not for this world of sin, Where we God's blessings waste. Then let us try upon this earth Our duties to fulfil,   And join our Marion in the skies Where comes no wrong...

PAYMENT OF MEMBERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 16 August 1884

PAYMENT OF MEMBERS, The time is probably not far distant wlicn the members of the representative House in every Australian legislature will be sala ried for their services. For years the prin ciple has been operative in Victoria and New Zealand. There is no disputing the fact that it is an expensive thing to be an M.L.A. in Sydney, The demand npon a member's intelleptual resources is extra ordinary, and the demand upon him in the early hours of the morning, which should be the most recuperative hours of sleep, is also extraordinary. But the demand upon a member's cheque-book is the most irritat ing aggravation in the situation. Lady collectors have a crazy belief that every M.L.A, is'a millionaire. The discharge of public duties, too, is fringed with social ex penses. A really poor member finds it terribly hard: to " pay his way" unless he wears a very broad piece t>f blue ribbon as I a pecuniary protector. -J). Telegraph.

©be gofonil jfrcc Do an adversaries do in lair. Strive mightily, but eat and drink as friends. SATURDAY, AUGUST 1G, 1881. If PasIoi* Allen can prove the case ho lias indicted against barmaids, ho certainly will have giveti just cause why an occupation so disastrous to female character, and pregnant with evil to the colony, should bo totally and for ever abolished. According to his state ment, half the immigrant girls seek employ ment at the bars of public-houses, and most of them soon become an easy prey of the seducer, who deserts his vitian and leavos her and the offspring of his licentious sel fishness to the country and its charities to protect and support. The cost of this wholesale depravity is of an extent that must make a considerable hole in the treasury's resources. ' No wonder, then, that chronio diseaso of. the chest should'be the condition of tho state coffers as well as of the witty Theodore Hook.
