VICTOR TRUMPER'S NARROW ESCAPE [Newspaper Article] — Saturday Referee and the Arrow — 25 January 1913
VICTOR TRUMPER'S NARROW ESCAPE; (By 'ONLOOKER.') Another step, nnd Victor Trumper mtgh: never have needed his benefit! Such la the declaration of nti eye-witness of an occurrence in George-street, yesterday morning. Tho idol of the cricketing public had Just left tho footpath at tho intersection of King and George-streets, carrying a bng and bat iu his right hand, and was so intent on reaching the other side, that he did not notice a Quay car coming along. True, his view must have boen temporarily obscured by several passing pedestrians and a vehicle; and V.T.'s main thought seemed to he to get across before a stationary ear 011 the .other lino got going. It was not until he was , almost on the line, that he noticed his pre- 1 dicament, and too late for the driver to have In his stride, and with his rear foot ready for the next step, it looked a certainty that Truuipcr's next move would land his under the car. The merest fraction of a second was his to decide, and. although his weig...
SOME CRICKET NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Saturday Referee and the Arrow — 25 January 1913
SOME CRICKET NOTES. (By 'RAMBLER.') Arthur Mailey was the Redfern hero in Bal maln's second innings, for his bowling waa I high-class, and very successful. I No batsman seemed to relish his puzzling slow;?. One cannot remember him sending down a loose ball. Next to the 'bosle' bowler, C. Hayes was tho local favorite. He stumped three men ; In each Instance ills work was excellent, and in the dismissal ot L. Wall, it was brilliant. The batsman missed a ball which passed between his legs aud tbe wicket. Going sllghtl) forward, he was out in a twinkling. The re turns to the wicket keeper and bowler bv some of the Redfern lleldsmeti were anything but accurate. Twice tiie batsman made mere taps to poin* and never dreamt of running , but when the ball was returned fully six yards beyond the bowler, a single was scored. G 'Whcatley's able baiting stood out pro minently for Balmaln.. Neat off strokes pre dominated In an innings sound and attractive. There was a fair number of enthusiasts, i...
NEWCASTLE NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Saturday Referee and the Arrow — 25 January 1913
NEWCASTLE NOTES. (By the 'Saturday Ucforce'' Newcastle Special Representative.) The Lonus case Is another example of the foolish things attempted bv some who follow the racing game. Thla gelding had been run ning in ihe country districts for some time, and on Saturday week won a race at Maltland. He started last Saturday at Dungog, and In a field of two was a 3 to 1 on favorite, and dulv won. The question of registration croppcd up. 'and it with the A.J.C. last year, and that the certifi cate would be produced. But as there was a Lonus, differently bred. In the list for 1911. It was apparent that the ofliclals would not regis ter another of the same name. The stipendiary stewards went Into the case. and. coming to the conclusion that the trainer. James Henry Lud ingtou (the horse was run In the nomination o! McLudlngtoti) had wilfully and knowingly racej the horse without registration, and otherwise mado misstatements, disqualified the horse and trainer for two years. The penalty Is...

SWIMMING CHATTER [Newspaper Article] — Saturday Referee and the Arrow — 25 January 1913
SWIMMING CHATTER (By CECIL HEALY.) , To-day, to-day — thero Is no time like the present— Ofcar Dlckman, the George Hodgfeon of Australia, if not altogether In pace, at any rate In style, is to deprive Joey Nuttall of iho honor of being holder of the 1000 yards world's professional record. McGrath's Laveifder Bay Baths# are to bear witness to the feat. Reliable tiraepiecrs (not the sort that ar«; given away with x pound of tea) have rcpcrvdly disclosed th3 fact that Oscar has no le?^ ''\n nine ftecond3 'up hla sleeve,' so one might say 'it is all over, bar the shouting.' As 'curtain-raisers' to the great event the promoters will stage no less than two Northern Districts Championships, and the 'c.ast' is a good one throughout. Hollingr.'orth and Prior will be the 'leading artists' in the 100 yards, and it is confidently anticipated that a great struggle will ensue between them, and that the Judges will have much difficulty in deciding which one is entitled to the 'star' part and the b...

"BOBBY," AN ACROBATIC DOG. WHO PLAYS A STAR TURN AT THE TIVOL THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — Saturday Referee and the Arrow — 25 January 1913
'BOBBY,' AN ACROBATIC DOG. WHO PLAYS A STAR TURN AT THE TIVOL'; ' . THEATRE. They say the cleverest dog on the stage, to day is 'Bobby,' the colleague and companion of the Maxinl Brothers, who open at the Tivoll Ibis (Saturday) afternoon. 'Bobby' is a fox terrier; but alaa ! he Is a plebeian among dogs. He cannot produce a blue-blooded pedigree, h:-urisc If he could speak Bobby would hate to urinlt tliat he Is a mongrel. But that fact brings Its consolation. It Is because he Is a mongrel that Bobby Is far cleverer and more intelligent than any well-bre l fox-terrier could be. KIs friends and masters, the Maxluls, declare that this Is so, and they have had a big acquaintance with dogs. Bobbv they have known for five years — since he first saw the light. He was a clever puppy— bo clever that at six months old he was able to go on the stage with the Maxlnls and give a performance that electrified them and the au dience. 'Bobby knows Just as much about tbe game as wc do,' said one of th...

If the truth must be told, the new niece from tho Gaiety Theatre, London, with all Its splendid mounting, Js a big variety entertainment in the dress, ot musical comedy. Still, It Is a fine show of its kind, and well up to the William son mark as a production, from the spectacular point of view. The plot Is Just, strong enough to last through the two lone acts.
