Shortly before the Great Epsom race Fred Archer was ' savaged' on Newmarket Heath by a horse called Muley Edris, who owed 'The Tin man,' a grudge for a hiding received during a race. The wounds did not heal as rapidly as they should have done, and so Archer came to Loudon to Consult Sir .Tnmps Pnnret. Asked by tbe jockey how long lie thought tlie wound would take to heal, Sir James Paget replied, ' Oli. I .think iu three or four days you will be all right.' ' But shall I be fit for tlie Derby ? ' was Archer's next anxious question. ' Ob, yes ;1 think you may go to the Derby.' ? ' But you don t quite understand. Sir James. I mean, shall I be fit to ride?' ' Better drive. Yes; you had' better drive,' was tho | reply. For a moment the great rucc rider was taken aback by the cautions professional answer, so lie had to fry again.

Another Weather Crank. The parsons and scientists have both had a try to break up the drought, each after his own style, and they both seem better at making ex cuses than anything else. This is a story from Thargomindah (told in Melbourne ' Arena') of a man who, as a rain maker stands undefeutsd and alone: He was an unwashed old i,„„ji ? ,i — ? ? r iicaniciJj » aiuiuuc uimsibieu UJ a battered old grey top hat and his native dignity. He was king of tlie tribe that hung round the station, aud knew nothing about the efficiency of 'universal humiliation,' or the power of ' electrical precipitation' ; but after some six years' drought he catne to the conclusion that something ought to be done. One evening the man ager noticed him sitting in the dry creek bed droning a sort of antliem over a little bag of pebbles, which lie buried iu the sand when his chant wns over. 'Halloa, Bill!' he called, ' what you makum ?' ' Makurn rain,' he replied. ' Big feller tumble down soon.' Two days later, ...

The meeting on Saturday last showed cleavly that the Directors, far' from neglecting the matter, had been' assiduously working in the interests of the shareholders, wisely preferring to keep their business to themselves until they could place the result before the shareholders iu a tangible form.

Mr. Justice Parker, in his summing up, said the plea of justification rested wholly on . the girl's evidence, and even if the jury were inclined to believe that that there was something in the story after the girl's own contradictions and the statements of other witnesses, who had been called, they had to con sider the evidence of Price and his ?wife. The jury, after four hours' retirement, returned a verdict for plaintiff for £100 damages, adding a rider expressing the opinion that the antlioi'ities should be nrged to insist that all the provisions of the Lunacy Act relating to the arre...

The bride, like most of her kind, was anxious to conceal the fact that she had come straight from the altar, but her efforts in that direction met the usual fate of such attempts, and when she and her spouse appeared at. the dinner table, the sly smiles and furtive nods of the other guests showed . that, they were found out. As the meal proceeded the damsel's confusion gradually increased, and, when at Inst One jovial old gentleman entered on an audible joke on the subject of rice and old boots her self-possession alto gether vanished.

A Suggestion. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 24 March 1903

A Suggestion. . Seven competitors, it is stated, ac curately guessed the weight of the bullock in the guessing competition at the Goul burn Show, and six tied for the sheep. While the result which lias been noted is creditable to the in nate powers in the way of mental' arithmetic possessed by the competitors, it, if repeated often, will altogether do away with public interest in these weight-guessing competitions. Where prizes have to be 'cut up' — this, we have'reason to believe, is the proper technical. term — among so many con testants who tie for first place, there is ' nothing in the game,' if' we may use. another expression of a technical kind. This being so, we feel that, haying a valuable suggestion to make, it ought to be &t once brought forward, liistead of a weight-guessing compe tition, let there be held at agricultural exhibitions a competition otgnessing at the amount of the State's national indebtedness. The competitors would have all the advantage of the pub...
