Saturday afternoon will bo remembered by the Dawn players, the first century by a junior player being made against them by Roberts, who played a faultless innings for 117 not out, and Trinity winning ensily by eight wick( ts and 125 runs.

Richardson and Miller batted splendidly. Stuart and McDowell were in a long time obtaining their runs, 36 and 24. Gasworks v. St. Mary's. — The former were a little surprised that this match ended in a draw, if it had been played out the Gas men would have won.

FISH FIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 27 January 1894
rf ISH ? f 1QHTS. : i The favorite sport in Siam ia fish fijghting Betting on fiah-fighte is such a passion with the Siamese that thej will stake, not only nil thairt money and their poods, but even their wives and childreti. The right to keep fighting fish is bestowed onlybj the king, and is so highly paid for, thatthp royal cofEers derive » large* revenue from granting the requisite' lilcenses. The fighting fish are little' things of/four and five oentimetnes, lor(g. and flot thicker than a child!* fipger^ but they -are full of 'fight/' and fly at 'each other with the utmost ferocity as. soon as they are let into the same water. In Annam- too, the same amusement pi*vaila. There the fith are kept in large clear, bottles of water ; and if one of the bottles is placed before a mirror the vicious little fish., seeing his own reflection, and taking it to be an ?nemy, goei nearly mad with excitement at his inability to get *t hie adversary. ??
MUSIC AND THE STAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 27 January 1894
Music and the Stage. [By KRtNO.] Mendelssohn's 'Lobgesang,' at St David's Cathedral last week presented, for the first time in my Hobart recollections, a combination of three trombones, tenor, alto and baas, who grandly set forth the leading motive, intmoHf, in the symphony, and further on who grandly set forth in tenor, alto and bags. The lovely Oboe boIo was cleverly supplemented by clarionet ; in fact it was on the whole the best orchestral com bination we have had here. The ' rendition ' was not quite what dear old MendeUsohn himself would have delighted in assisting at, but as every one of the perf«rmers» ladies and gentlemen, evidently did their level best, and succeeded, to the satisfaction of an over-crowded audience — I beg pardon, congregation — it is no use criticising in dividually the efforts of the soloists, con sidering the distance between the ' LobgeBang's ' head centre, Hamburg, Germany, and this, one of H.B.M.'s moBt remote dominions which distance, in this instan...

Clipper — The ey« we (that's bill and me) have to Keep on the island press, to stop it gittin into a tangle, is a duty that has many drawbacks and sometimes it becomes a sort of hundred per cent imposition. On the 12th ibst. the Shades of Evening, as the gloomy Abuse is called on account of its ben i ted utterances, had a cablegram calcu lated to put a twist in the train of bill's thoughts enuf to make them run crooked for a month. The enigma was thusly : — ' The proprietor was roused by the ring ing of an electric bell. He found the first burglar in the dining-room, and fired two shots with a revolver, one going through the lobe of the burglar's ear and the other through his whi kers. The man, however, escaped. 'The second burglar was grappltd by young Crawcour in the shop, mho that the latter through the body, and held the burglar till arrested.

ASSES OR ALDERMEN. Oh, what a row, what a rumpus and a rioting, Aldermen, like asses braying for a bluff. What's the burly burly ? Sure there is no quieting — Mullygrubs from having an overdose of Duff.

He ramped round considerably when the boys whistled the Dead March, though now he has once again related into Hs good natured self. The House of L -rdn insists on the Earl of Derby's ntnondmeuts to the Employers' Liability Bill that workmen should be per mitted to contract out of the operation of tho bill.

POLLARD'S LILIPUTI AN' OPERA COMPANY. Pollard's Liliputian Opera Co. opened at the Theatre Royal on Monday evening last in tho up to date pantomime ' Aladdin,' and seemed to hit the public taste right from the iump. The piece occupies about three hours, and Mr. Tom Pollard has managed to introduce many novelties into it, making local hits, thus gaining a strong point with the audience. The Binging of the different members and the magnificent scenery are the main features, and judging by their nightly reception at the Eoyal their season should be a highly successful one. The well-known opera of La Mascottc was produced last evening and was cordially wel comed. There will be a nmtincr this after noon for fnmilk'8 and children, and La Mascotte will bested ii^.iiii to-nieht.

Launceston Races, fBr The Owl,! After patiently waiting for several days we have at last been favored with a look at the weights for the first of our big handi caps. I don't know who invented the idea of keeping the weights back until bo late a date but whoever it was I must say that I cannot congratulate them on the success that has attended cnoir ettorts. in com mencing the handicap at 9st. 31b. I think that the handicapper has made it very Battering. I fully expected to see the top weights asked to carry at least 9st. 1 01b. The weights being declared se late in the day will prevent Scarpia from get ting here to take part, and Marco has been backed so often that I begin to think he is turning rogue. Straightiiro at 9st. 21b. is handicapped very nieely indeed and should Irs party plank the dollars down, he will take no end of beatiug — but Hisehoff with 9st. is treated very badly indeed, and I will not be surprised t see his owner putthe pen through bis name.
