WHY THEY DO NOT. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 25 April 1885

' WHY THEY DO NOT. ?' ; \j It was a Boston girl who asked, ' Why is it that two souls mated in the impenetrable mystery of their nativity float by each oilier on the oceanour rents of i-xisiL-iice without being in stinctively i)rawn together, blended, and beautified in the assimilating alembic of eternal lovo?' That is an easy one, say« lift American editor. It is because butter is forty -five cgpts a pound and a good sealskin sacque costs as high as five hundred dollars. The necessar ies of life must experience a fall in price before two sofjla will readily blend in the assimilating alembic, and sp. forth. It does not follow that the man who has no front teeth is a backbiter. A Closer. — Scene — Parlour of Scotch inn ; two men, in hot discussion. First :, ' WM newpapers dae ye read ?'

The ad journed meeting held at'Harrison's Club Hotel last Saturday evening was largely attended, Mr. T. Abbott again presiding. On the motion of Mr. J. F.

FANCY FAIRS ;A?Nfc-' 1 BAZA'AltS1.' Tiie closing of the Shakesperian Fanoy Fair in the Lion Arcade, Newtown, which was opened for a worthy charitable purpose, and lasted a fort night, has afforded ur- an excellent opportunity of saying a few words about fancy fairs and bazaars generally — their uses and the objections that might' bo and have been nrged against .them.''. In the first place, we may remarlrthat the Shakesperian Fair in Newtown was admirablv ? organised : from the com mencement, opened ..with magnificence, and most respectably conducted, throughout. Nothing could exceed the beauty and appropriateness to the different Shakesperian: characters, of the dresses of thoBe fascinating youiig ladies who presided over the stalls, and with irrepressible energy and , vivacity drove an active trade .and drew forth ^noney from the pockets of the crowds of visi tors. They must have sold all the goods, on their stalls during: the' fortnight the Fancy Fair was open. The nightly pro ces...

The Balmain Half-holiday Association, , which ijras started , under, such, favonr ; ; able anspices someieventbr eight months -.vagp, seems to. be waning. This result has, jn the first instance, been caused' ? by the apathy shown by some of the per sons who, are benefited by the institu tion. Things went merrily enough when' tiie shopkeepers attended the Associa tion meetings and discussed matters mooted for the advancement of the movement, but with the falling off in utt'endanoe at the meetings, until it was difficult to get a quorum, commenced tiie partial decay of the system; and, encouraged by the diminution of interest^ tlie lukewarm portion of the shop keepers, at any rate those living; in the we-st ward, have neglected to put up - tiicir shatters first,, and now open their. doors full wide.
