ROUND THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 1 December 1883
ROUND THE WORLD. &nbsp; BY A FOOTSCRAYAN. AFTER leaving Inverness, I proceeded to Oban, in the heart of the Highlands, and after- wards visited Iona, and Staffa. At the former-sacred Iona-are the oldest ruins in connection with Christianity in Scot- land ; there are the grey moss-covered ruins of St. Columbus Cathedral and near them the graves of kings dating from Fergus the first, who tradition avers Feasted his nobles on Kail-brose, Before going out to thrash his foes. At Staffa are the famous Fingal Caves, but as every schoolboy has read of them in his class books, I need not attempt the description, nor yet that of the island scenery with its weird rugged grandeur. Leaving Oban by the steamer we proceeded along the west coast between Jura and the mainland, through the Crinan Canal and joined the Columbia at Adrishaig, at the head of Loch Finn. The trip through the loch, and the Kyles of Blite and up the Clyde, is one of the grandest of the many grand sights to be had in ...

QUOITS. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; At the West End Quoit Rinks, adjoining the Buckingham Hotel, some first-class quoiting has taken place since the Cup week. W. Wilson, an old quoiter from Wangarratta, and many up- country players pronounce the above ground all that could be desired. Miss Solomon, of the Albert Hotel, Upper Footscray, has laid down a new quoiting ground for the North End Club, and last Saturday gave some valuable prizes, which were well contested. In a handicap game Ross beat Smith by two points, West beat Miller by three points, Mansfield beat Strickland bysix points. Anderson and Strongman were beaten. The most interesting and final game was between Govan and Ross, both at scratch. Some first class quoiting was shown in this game. Ross was defeated by a few points only.

-4-- 1"T is well-nigh time that the Central Board of Health or Borough 'Council tried conclusions with the__Raijtlw Deparif -ent, iiSilh te vie -of abolish ing the unmitigated nuisance, caused by the drain at the Nicholson street crossing, Year after year as the loose soil of the drain gets permeated with the foul drainage percolating through it, the noisome smell increases and the danger to human life becomes greater. A casual glance will satisfy the most apathetic, that this nuisance cannot be allowed to continue without the most dire consequences, as in addition to the smell, which sickens the strongest as they pass, the en/ozoa-like worms blood red and fine as hairs can be seen mov ing in the putrid rottenness in millions. That such things should be allowed to exist in' the centre of a populous borough, is h disgrace to the author ities, and the Central Government Like wise. Indeed from near Paisley street to Nicholson street gates, but especkilly at the latter, where there appe...
