OTHELLO A BLACK MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 July 1889

OTin:r.r.o a Bi.aok Man. 'I havo noticed that tho actors who play Othello nover paint their facos darker than the quadroon ahado,' said an actor. ' This is right for more reasons than one. But in fact it is not the Othello that Shakspeare created.. The Othello of Shakspoaro was puro African. Ho was black, he was thick-lipped, he was old, he was, -to the Caucasian eye, not of comely fea tures; ? Iago predicts that Desdemoua will Boon woary of the. Moor, 'jxwd among other reasons advances i 'She must change for youth.' Othello himself says : 'lam declined into tho vftle;of years.' Ho was. ugly. ;Iagosays of him ; 'Loveliness in favor . . ? all of which tho Moor is defective in.' ' To fall in love with what sho fears to look on.' Also, 'Her' eye must bo fed, and what delight shall Mho have to look on tliu devil V The Moor had thu Africa ii features. ? What a full fortune does tliu thick lips owe.'

TRAMS AND TRAM TRAVELLERS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 July 1889

TRAMS AND TRA.M TRAVELLERS. . The full page devoted to trams and tram travellers will be recognised as a truthful.- repre sentation of familar ovory day inoidonts of street' life. Melbourne citizens are proud of their cable system, and aro apt to 'extol its merits in' . a manner whioh Sydney visitors aro inolined to regard as excessive. It may perhaps be only in tended as a retort satirioal, but it is gravely affirmed that the inquiry, 'What do you think of our tramways ? ' is as oomm'on. in Melbourne as the seeking ? for expressions of admiration over ' our beautiful harbor ' is in Sydney. Howover this may be, in both crises, in tho human handiwork as well' as tho works' of nuture, there is good reason for pride. - Tram way travelling, even under the more oivilisod fashion of tho cable system, with its rogular mode of progression and its prooautiona against ocoidonts, is not without its exoitements and its Inoidonts, - laughable and the roverse. Whilst not adding to the dangers' of...

The scene at the colliery was one of intense excitement, and it was heartrending to witness. the crowds of women, full of distressful anxiety, who: had come to learn . the fate ' of those dear to them. It is pretty well known that tho 'portion of the A. A. Company's mine in which tho acoi dont occurred is ' almost ' worked out, and men were, in fact, engaged in drawing tho back, or taking out tho pillars, and in picking up tho rails in the 'portion of this particular district.

OUR ILLUSTRATIONS. OUR COLORED SUPPLEMENT. OUR DEFENDERS.-THE FIELD ARTILLERY IN ACTION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 July 1889

nvw OUR COLORED SUPPLEMENT. OUR DEFENDERS.— THE FIELD ARTIL LERY IN ACTION. Defence, not. dofianco, is tho motto which indicates the spirit permeating our military arrangements.' 'We wish to maintain ; our own security, hot to encourage any .aggressive course of action. The pomp and circumstance of war has no charm for a people engaged in the arduous work of building up a nation in anew land. -But it is illustrative of the independent fibre which has made the Anglo-Saxon the colonising race of the world that we have not shrunk from the burden of undertaking the defence of ,' our own shores against hostile invasion. We may hope that the occasion may never arise for bringing pur forces into action, but to be prepared is the best guarantee. In the colored supplement which accompanies this issue is presented a very important branch- of the military service. The Field Artillery Brigade in Viotoria com prises three batteries of six guns each. The brigade numbers about 255 men, and is unde...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 July 1889

. SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Dramatic affairs have not been particularly brisk in Adelaide,' but the appearance of Mr. Charles AVarner in Hands ' Across the Sea has helped to. make matters a little lively. This' pie 30 was a great success in Melbourne. It was ah utter fiasco in Sydney. It plucked up in Brisbane, and has been doing as well as could be ? expected under the circumstances at Adelaide. Mr.AVarnor, however, is dissatisfied with the partial success with -which this piece has been ' produced in tho colonies. He is said to have paid a very high price for tho Australian right of its production, and the company re quired to play it is expensive. He is ac companied by his daughter, who. is now.ablo to play small parts with some degree of oase and capacity. Mr. Lincoln, the humorist^ has had iv very pi ofi table time of it in Adelaide. He . intended^to stop a fortnight, but such was his success that he prolonged the -season for a month. . Mr. Lohr is still acting as his manager.
