    From the Arthur Upfield novel "Mr Jelly's Business" we have

    A dog scratched' and 'litfed loudly. A man whistled and
    shollted: "Dinner, come Icerct".

    Should be : A dog scratched and sniffed loudly. A man whistled and
    shouted: "Ginger, come here."

    Yes, Ginger is the dog's name.

    I wasn't aware that Upfield's novel had been serialised in this paper. You can find some, not all, of this other serials here: https://trove.nla.gov.au/list?id=125956

    I'm working on them but they take a while.

    You'll find Mr. Jelly's Business in both the Newcastle Morning Herald, NSW 1940 and The Daily News in Perth. 1932; The Herald, Melbourne; and The Advertiser in Adelaide. Don't have notes for the years for the last ones.

    Upfield has two other stories serialized in The Herald, Vic.: "Murder On the Station" aka "The Bone is pointed" in 1938, and The Great Melbourne Cup Mystery, 1933.
