No Title [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 31 March 1883

As a hint to those who get up athletic sports we give the followlng eatrat from e Yamouth paper which certainly embraces some new features, especially the last itemofthe fytte: -"The most amusing feature of the day, however, was what is called an Obstacle Race, the prizes offered in which were Li and los respectively. To become the winners of these, the competitors had first of all to climb an awkward scaffolding and then drop to the ground from the centre of a lofty horizontal pole, then run some distsanc and creep under a low pitched waggon, emerging from this they were. confronted at a short distance by a tangled web of ropes, over and through which they had to extricate themselves as best they could, then crawl through a pair of carriage wheels further down the track, subsequently draw themselves under some hurdles raised a short distance from the ground, and finally, get into headless barrels and roll themselves up to the goal.

He rented a hall and obtained quite a large, audience. When the hips for beginning the lecture arrived, the Professor advanced and explained the science, and then invited persons in the audience to come forward and permit him to examine their skulls, and tell them what were their characteristics. Several men offered themselves for this ordeal, and the Professor contrived to come so near to the truth in describing them that he' more. than once excited a good deal of applause.

Our Holiday in New South Wales. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 31 March 1883

OuriHoUdayIn,New South Wales. A QUARTER of a century of hard work and unremitting.grinding at the wheels of all sorts of occupations, gives one a sort of restless crav ing for a change, "anywhere, anywhere," out of-the jog-trot, every-day avocations of busi niess; and so it is scarce to, be wondered at, that the opportunity offering for a fortnight's run out of the colony, and in agreeable society. I eagerly seized the favourable moment, and engaged for a trip to the sister State. During nearly thirty years residence in Victoria I had niever been outside of its boundaries, although I had travelled over most of its territory byone or other means of conveyance. Had tramped the weary miles to the diggings, loaded like a patient camel, but unlike that animal, giving vent to my feelings in language emphatic and pointed, when the swag galled my shoulder or the shoes pinched the blisters. I had careered over its plains on high mettled steeds. Had ridden for days in the humble bullock dray;...

CHURCH NElWS. ST. JOHN'S CHURCH. The annual picnic in connection with St. John's Sunday-school took place on the 27th at the Public Gardens, Footscray. Hitherto it has been the custom of the teachers to take a trip into the country by rail, but this involved so much expense, that it was determined to try the local gardens this year. There was over 55o children present, and about aoo adults, and a very pleasant day was spent. In the evening there was an entertainment given at the Royal Hall to the parents, teachers, and elder scholars, when the large hall was packed. Altogether the affair was a most enjoyable one, and thpre was no loss of pleasure in remaining at home instead of going to the country. On Good Friday there was divine service at. St. John's Church, at which about 70 persons were present. The. Incumbent, in his observa tions, remarked on the tendency to secularise Christian festivals, and said that if Good Friday had any significance, it was a hallowed and sacred one; an...

After the visitors had done ample justice to all the good things, the captains met and tossed up the coin, the luck falling to the local mei, and a start was made with the game.
