“THE LONE HAND."
Long promised come at last. The Bulletin Newspaper Co., Sydney, have issued the first number of their illustrated monthly magazine, bearing the above title. Stories, sketches criticisms, and humour make up the contents of what undoubtedly bids) fair to be a first ranker in magazinedom. It has plenty of local or Australian colour, there is something for pretty well every taste, and the periodical has a distinct character of its own—it is no weak imitation of other things in the same line. We are told that the first number is the poorest —that is usually so, but this first number is so good that if later ones are better, then the reading public will certainly have a good shillingsworth. We are glad to see that the “Lone Hand’ 7 is laying a heavy hand on such evils as totebetting, particularly in Melbourne, alleged consumption cures and patent medicine frauds. The Government can do something, but the Press can do more to stamp out these excrescences of civilisation. To many of these existence is only possible through the publicity given in the advertising columns of newspapers and colonies—once insertion is refused of anything, of a doubtful character a big step forward will have been taken towards protecting the public from the vampires who fatten on the sickly and ailing. Therefore, good luck and long life to “The Lone Hand."
