THE PENNY READINGS IN DANGER. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph, St Kilda, Prahran and South Yarra Guardian — 20 April 1867

TIlE PENNY READINGS IN DANGER. We hailed the initia?o? of the Penny ]eading Movoment in Victoria with pleasure, we have wat hhd its growing popularity with satisfactioisl, and we look upon its present measure of success with unfeigned delight. We had left the old country •before it was born, but from a pretty extensive perusal cif old-world papers we saw the chronicle of its birth and have since been kept posted up in its progress. It has done much in England to supply the working classes with a ~heop and healthy amusement, and to draw them away from entertainments of a demioralising tendency. We felt at once that there was a large field of usefulness in this coluny waiting to be similarly cultivated; and it was with real pleasure that we saw Priehran put the first plough in this virgin soil. Her success ecm boldened others to follo?, and, largely as the movement has extended, we do not think it has yet attaincdi tihe zenitl of its popularity. It will, then, doubtless seem anomalous...

EASTERTIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph, St Kilda, Prahran and South Yarra Guardian — 27 April 1867

EAS'E R'rTIDE. Never at a loss for an exniiss for a hsolidasy, we Victorians have certainly given ourselves ulp to tihe keepingo qf the two great Christian festivals of Easter and Clhristmas with a unanimity that can scarcelyv be equalled in anay other portion of Christendom, and cer tainly notsurpassed. But though we thus strictly adhere to the good old custoti, of passing them in entire cessistion fomt business ---,xcepting of a kind that is necessitated by administering to the necessities and enjoy ments ofothers-there is a simnilaity in our manner of doing this which drives the scribes who have the chronicling of the same to their wits' ends to discover new phrase ology with which to describe old ideas. But wvhy should they thus needles'sly puzzle their overtaxed brains? Good wine needs no bush ; and if our ways of enjoying these holidays are good,. as' we aver they are, tihe record of them does -not need the embellisl ment of the magnilouenat peu of the penny a-liner.
