COMING EVENTS. THE HAWKESBURY HANDICAP [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 24 March 1887
COMING EVENTS. THE HAWKESBUBY HANDICAP (Br ' Rably Bird.') Last weeii I treated pretty fully on the Rowley Mile, which is the leading race on tho first day at the Hawkesbury Autumn Meeting. There is no doubt that the Hawkesbury Autumn Handicap is the plum of the gathering, and already a creat amount of speculation has taken place, over the event. At present there are no fewer than 32 left in the handicap, the top weight being Tom Brown with 8st. 12 lb. fie is a horse quite able, to carry this impost, but I am afraid he will not be nsked to take part in the struggle, as tho Sydney Cup is more to his liking, in which I10 must bo hard to beat. He is very well indeed, and I scarcely think that his owner would jeopardise his chances of success by starting him. If Tho Jewel is sent, and everyone knows that Mr. Mayo has a great partiality for this event, then with 41b. less ho should be hard to put down. Honeydew I do not respect at all. Lower down I fall across Kitawa, with the handy weig...
CANTERBURY PARK CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 24 March 1887
CANTERBURY. PARK CLUB. (By ' Eawly Bibd.') , This club is not to 'be commcnclcd for the one-sided step it took in postponing tlic meeting set down for Saturday last. The postponement was laid to the weather, but no finer clay for racing could have been desired. Certainly, there was a heavy downpour 011 Friday night, but that cannot be urged as sullicient induce ment for the postponement, and the only way that it can be taken is that tho club, which can boast of sonic very wealthy members, was afraid that a few paltry shillings would be lost at the gate. But what about tiie numerous horse owners who have been put to the trouble and expense of visiting the metropolis with their horses ? Sonic arrived from Newcastle, while others came from Richmond and all round to take part in the meeting, and had to return again disappointed. Some con sideration surely was due to them. Each of these gentlemen have incurred more expense individually than tlic club would have sustained collectively, an...

MELBOURNE LETTER. Monday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 24 March 1887
MELBOURNE LETTER. (fKOM OUR OWN COIlRESI'ONnENT.) Monday Evening. Racing matters are dull, and the repeti tion of events so rapidly during the past five months has given place to little or no racing at all. There are a few small country meetings to come off, but the list for the next month is not a formidable one. Leithemstead and Stand III. Tiie meeting hold at Elsternwiek Part, on St. Patrick's Day, was a very successful one, despite the counter attraction of tho Hibernian Sports, and the racing was first-class. Tho trot was a novelty to mnny of those present, the weights being, drivers to earryjlOat. 10lb., riders, list. 71b. The association of sulkies and saddle-herses made the trot less monotonous than usual, and in fact it proved a rathor interesting race, owing to . the great olfort made by Leithemstead, a saddle-horse, to overhaul ? Maud III. 'ill' ? sulky. The mare was handicapped 10 seconds, and Leithemstead GOsee. behind scratch. Tho grey made a gallant effort, butliaving...

BLUEBEARD 'S LAST WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 24 March 1887
BLUEBEARB'S LAST WIFE. A learned man, who makes it his business to liunt up tho records of traditional charactors, and bring the truth to light, went into the history of Bluebeard rccontly, expecting to prove that he was a myth, liko Wil liam Toll and other fabulous people. Ho didn't succeed in that, but he discovered that Fatima, BlucbcarcVs last wife, was a very different woman from what has long been supposed. Instead of being a timid creaturo who didn't dare say her soul was hor own,' TVitiniu was a regular ' rip-' snortor,': and led Bluoboard a terri ble lifo from the day' thoy wero mar-, riod. . She knew all about the disap pearance of his numerous wives nnd what had become of them, and she gave her husband to understand that lie' couldn't come any of his games over her.1, -She said if she disap peared it wouldn't cost him a cent.
