There used now and then to be fun with the “still” men, for even in those days there were stills. One character in that line was Paddy Gallagher, a dark, swarthy, forbidding looking Paddy, from the West. His first exploring was on that block at the junction of Windmill Road and Show Grounds Street, through which ran a nice little creek at the rear of what is now the Reece property. Paddy got bowled out. Another of his expeditions was to sow his neighbour’s land, with whom he had some row, with sorrel.

Another later on was one [illegible] somewhat about where now is the Salvation Town barracks. He did not bother about going out of Town. Some friend sold the Pass. He cleared for Fiji.
