[n/a] : Daily Telegraph

Davitt meets with a fellow prisoner released on ticket-of-leave: '"I promised you", he exclaimed upon meeting me, "that I would live 'on the square' in future, and here is evidence of a commencement," showing me at the same time a copy of the "Daily Telegraph" with an advertisement as follows: - "Wanted, two hundred barmaids." "That", remarked "Jerry", "is simply to arrest the attention of the fair sex, and case them to read what follows. 'Extraordinary triumph of science! Marvellous results to health and complexion from the use of Fitzjerry's skin purifier. Freckles and disfiguring marks removed by one phial. To be had only of respectable druggists."'
