ECHOES OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 2 February 1894

ECHOES OF SPORT. From Charley Westbrook, the well-known and popular penciller, I have received a copy of his handy little volume — ' Australian form at a Glance,' which should be well-nigh indispensable just now j to all sportsmen who take a monetary or general interest in the results of f.Vio ? and Australian Cup, for it gives the performances, pedigrees, and weights of all nags engaged in those events in a style which is very clear and reliable. In addition within the pages of the neat little volume may be found the weight-for-age scale, the fastest time records, a list of past winners, particulars of courses, etc. The M*rrurundi Jockey Club has issued a very liberal programme for its approaching meeting on March^ 7 and 8, and it is one that is thorougly deserving the attention of racing men. I am glad to notice, too, that the club has determined to make any bookmaker who may be desirous of plying *juu up ,t deposit — w nich, of course, will be returned — as a guarantee as to his ...

MARIGOLD. CHAPTER V. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 2 February 1894

MARIGOLD. I CHAPTER V. ' It ha3 killed her — which proves that she loves Armand yet !' cries Leo, lifting the unconscious Ethel and carrying her to the inner room. Here mother and bo a work over her ; but it is hours before she regains consciousness. ' Let me pray of you to give me those papers j I ?will give you half tuy fortune !' are the first words she sobs forth. Bat Leo answers, with a taunting smile : 'The wealth of the world could not buy them !' At that moment there is a knock at the cabin door, and, to Ethel's joy, it opens to admit a couple of servants from Carleton Hall. 'Oh, miss ! we must start at once for the Hall ; the mistress is in hysterics over your long ab sence they exclaim. 'Tell, me, first, did Mr. Armand reach the main land?' eagerly inquires Ethel; but the men declare they do not know. ' At least you can tell xne if there has been a marriage at Forest Chapel to-night ?' persists their mistress. ' I should say there had been some kind of ex. citement there,'...

MANNING RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 2 February 1894

? I MANNING RIVER. I Heavy rain fell here on Saturday afternoon last, and continued with slight intermission throughout Sunday and Monday. To-day (Tuesday) has been showery, but at present the weather seems to have cleared, and it is likely to be fine. xne amusements on tuu river uu a.uunrnrsary Day consisted of the Lower Manning Turf Club Races, held at Cundle Plains ; a schnapper excur sion in the tug ' John Gollan' ; and a ball at night in Cundletown in connection with the Roman Catholic Church. The races, I believe, passed off successfully, although unfortunately for the genial and hard working Secretary, Mr. J. J. McDonell. His horse, Gladstone, was a great favourite in the two big handicaps. He won the mile race ; but in the big handicap, for which only Miller's Scientist and he started, something appeared wrong with him, for his jockey could 'not get him going until his opponent had a considerable lead. He however closed on Scientist, and a good race resulted in a hard win fo...

Kent, proprietor of the well-known dining rooms, High-street, West Mait land, entertained the members of the Lochinvar Cricket Club and a number of their friends at his private residence, Station-street, Lochinvar.

The Height of Man. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 2 February 1894

The Height of Man. A French mathematician has been pursuing studies which have led to curious results. He has been studying the records with a view of determin ing the height of men at different periods. The ? recorded facts extend over nearly three centuries. It is found that in 1610 ths average height of man in Europe was five feet nine inches. In 1790 it was five feet six inches. In 1820 ifc wan fivn foof: five inches and a fraction. At the present time it is five feet three and three-fourthE ? inches. It is easy to deduce from these figures a rate of regular and gradual decline in human stature, and then apply this, working back ward and forward to the past and to the future. By ? this calculation it is determined that the stature of the first men attained the surprising average of sixteen feet 9 inches. At the beginning of our era the average height of man was nine feet, and in the time of Charlemagne it was eight feet eight inches. But the most astonishing result of this scien...

LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. THE IUlOCEEriNGS OF WEDNESDAY. Mr. Danahey, impressed with the brilliant idea that it would be to the advantage of Parliament to place on record an account of the prolonged and fruitless debate on Wednesday, drew attention to the report of the proceedings which appeared in yesterday's Herald, and pointing out that tho official reporters liarl hnon ot-nlndod fw,™ galleries, asked that the Herald account should be adopted as the official one, in order that future generations might have an opportunity of studying the curious ways of our present New South Wales Legislature. Unfortunately for Mr. Danahey, the Speaker cut him short in the most unfeeling manner, and declined to allow the motion to be put unless notice was given in the usual manner. Mr. Danahey took the check in a friendly way, and a little^ later on gave notice of a motion fcr the com pilation of an official report from the accounts which have appeared in the press.
