Sunday Reading. WHY? [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 6 April 1889

ginibag limbing. WHY i .{By Makgahet J. Pbeston.] Why do we suffer ? Why should God, W ho loves His creatures, scourge them so 1 He hath the right— we need the rod ; This is enough for us to know. We^ search and question to what end ? The finite cannot comprehend Tbe infinite mystery of pain. Shall earth worms, burrowing in the soil, Aspire to gauge creation's plan ; Or strive to measure 'mid their toil The strange complexities of man ? As well may we, earth-born and low, Stretch upward from our mole-hill clod, And ask, with daring front, to know The ' wherefore and the why' of God I

"FAITHFUL." [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 6 April 1889

' FAITHFUL.' (From the Sunday at Home] Many years ago a young girl stood in a famous picture gallery in a great capital city. To visit it had been the coveted treat of a long looked-for holiday — one of the rare holidays of a hard-working, absorbing life, which, in many of its circumstances and conditions, was, to one of her nature, little Bhort of daily cruci fixion. Now she Btood like one entranced, gazing on a picture representing a Roman guard, standing resolute at his post in Pompeii in the fateful hour when the great eruption of Vesuvius turned the city of pleasure into a charnel-houae. The glare of the awful conflagration was upon the soldier, ashes were falling thick around, fragments of stone flying through the air were crashing above him. Death imminent was stamped on everything, save the noble countenance of the brave man himself. There shone that dauntless spirit which is beyond destruction. And yet there was also 'a touch of strong emotion on the face,' as if at that mo...

THE VICTORIAN CHAMPIONSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 6 April 1889

THB TICTORIAN CHAMPIONSHIP. Tbe match to decide the draughts champion ship of Victoria was begun in Melbourne on March 26, _ Competitors must have resided in Victoria six months prior to the receipt of entries. There was some doubt whether GUI lagher, one of the strongest players, had com plied, with this condition. He was formerly a resident of Adelaide, and a telegram was re ceived in this city by the secretary of the Draughts Club pntting the question whether his departure from Adelaide had taken place sufficiently long ago to have enabled him to comply with the fundamental condition. We believe that the answer waa such as to seriously jeopardise Mr. Gallagher's chances. The firat prize waB a gold watch, and the Becsnd a silver trophy. Below are the games played on the opening night : — Game No. 129— Played between Messrs. Brown and Gallagher.

- ♦ BICKS'S COLORED MINSTRELS AT G&RJSER'S ROOMS. Twelve years have elapsed since Mr. Chas, S. Hicks first appeared in Adelaide with the original Georgia Minstrels, and whether his popularity as a manager is remembered or whether it be that public curiosity has been aroused »b to the abilities of his present troupe of colored minstrels it is certain that an over flowing house at Garner's Booms on Saturday evening inaugurated their Ade laide season. Numbers of neople were un able to obtain admission, who will he ad mitted on presenting their tickets to-night, The troupe consists of 33 members, the majority of whom are either black or tinted, and they include some excellent vocalists, good comedians, and first- class acrobats.

-Sh0Dimg. HISDMARSH B1ILITIA RIFLE CLUB. On Saturday afternoon the half yearly prize meeting of thiB club took place at the Port Adelaide ranges.
