Selected Poetry. THE KING-CUP'S TEST. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 14 May 1881
^thdtb §0jefeg« THE KING-OOP'S TEST. Jay lips seemed swift enough with words, 'Hid school-mates, song, and story, That ever as her sweet race tame, Lost all their wanted glory. Some glamour in the deep blue eye — Liove'a nameless tender token — Drew close the golden gates of apeeoh, Ard left the word unspoken. Till one rare morning, when the year Was gay with leafy banners, And Katart'e tuneful troubadours Were sieging blithe hosannao ; When every sound w«s in the air The sweet-voiced spring oonld niter She plucked a ting-cup from the hedge, To tee if I liked baiter. A golded chalice, eloped in snow ; Ihe bine eyei peering under — E'en now, in sober middle-age, I find no room for wonder That when youth's happy vintage bore Its babble-beaded wine, The peerless veatal's pensive face Seemed more than half devine. Dear, guileless girl ! She dearly meant The golden fruit of dairy ; Z heard alone a pronoun street, That stood for winsome Mary. And, while the awift impetuous tides Set all l...

Music and the Drama ADELAIDE STRING QUARTET CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 14 May 1881
Ipskimirtjr* grama ADELAIDE STKING QUARTET CLUB. On Wednesday afternoon, May 11, the first concert of the second subscription season entered npon by the Adelaide String Quartet Club took place at the Academy of Husio. Ihere was a large audience. The introduction of a series of concerts comprising only high-class classical music was at the beginning of the last season regarded as an experiment likely to meet with rather lukewarm success.

A MENTAL ANODYNE. [To be read in connection with the artiole in our issue of March 261. I have not yet done with the professor's indictment against chess. I have given a reply from a negative point of view to the charge that chess causes a waste of time ; but when it is charged with, impairing temper and inducing bad habits, I think the reply ought to be positive and aggressive. If it were said that chess tries temper and tefita dispositions, it must be admitted that it does so with great severity and nicety. nut suieiy tnis is a benefit rather than an inj ry- What if all the people who play chess are not perfectly wise 'r1 Is it chess that hinders them from being so? We have seen that even the most advanced education does not hinder men from being fools, and if chess reveals folly where it might not otherwise be suspected, it only extends thereby the opportunities of im provement. With regard to temper, how ever, I must observe that chess is liable on mere surface observation to be...
