FOOTBALL. SUNBURY V. GISBORNE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 30 September 1893
FO.OT SA L. ISUNBURy V. GISBORNE. The return match between these teams was played on the Island at Gisborne IOL Saturday last. The locals were re presented by an exceptionally strong teamn and Sunbury had the valtable assistance of Geo. Hartley, who was an absentee at the previous match between these clubs, played at Sunbury, which ended in a d~ts. During the plogrese of the game, which was very rough throughout Craig, a local player, was injatued and had to be carried off the field. Soon after the umpire, Mr Turner, who officiated in hir well-known style, much to the chagrin of the visitors, bounced the ball, G, McCubbin was awarded a free kick within easy distance, but failed deplorably, just managing to secure a behind. The leather was quickly worked back and Rigg secured it at a nasty angle, but he was equal to the occasion, and piloted one of the neatest goals we have see kicked this season. The results were as as follows: FIRST QUARTER. SUNBURY-I GOAL 1 BEHIND, GIssoaNs-2 BEHI...

MONK VERSUS THIEF. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 30 September 1893
MONK VERSUS THIEF, At a monastery in southern France viaitors are proudly told the story of the monk w0ho was once one of the inmates of the convent. Tne monks belong to a mendicant order, and send out one of their members periodically on begging excur sions. The hero of the story-it happened many years ago-had been uut on one of these expeditions, and was coming back to the muonastery, his purse well fited, when he was attacked in a corner of the wood by a highwayman, who poiuted a pistol at his head. The priest sbbmitted instantly, crying for mercy and tossing his nurse to the thief, who put it in his coat. "Ah,'" gasped the monk, ", take it, take it!:' But what a wigging the prior will give me if he thinks 1 made no resistance ! If you are a highwayman of the fine old school, you will do me a favor." "Certainly," said the thief-he was anxious to deserve the compliment_-' any tung you wish. What is it ?" •"I want to prove to the prior that I defended myself heroically agauint your...
The Sunbury News. Be just and Fear not. SUNBURY, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 1893. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 30 September 1893
Bie ust afrid F"a" *it. SUNIURYt, SATUtRAY. SEPTEMIBER 30, 1893, IN another column a correspondent makes rather a bitter attack on Mr Clarkson over the public meeting held at Sunbury recently for the purpose of endeavoring to get the Government to stick to its original proposal regarding the new wards erected here for criminal patients. He states, " Mr Clarkson was merely the agent of that. mysterious influence which seeks to render Sunbury non-progressive." We do not for a moment intend to make believe that we are in favor of the views expressed by Mr Clarkson at the meeting, for we are totally opposed to them ; yet we honestly think his ideas were honorable to all in tents and purposes. Apart from the insinuation referred to, our correspon dent's letter bears a good deal of sound ogic, and we agree that if the Govern ment do not concede to alter their present intention the building will be stigmatised, and rightly too, a "white elephant." It was built for a specific purpose, and t...

" My dear, you were such a charmin, dc,utaeic fifteen years ago," said l r. Hautton, malicious;y. " Was I? I only remember you um.de such a lovely chaperon for me ,~hln I came cut.'

RAILWAY ACCIDENT NEAR MACEDON. A CHILD FALLS OUT OF THE NOON TRAIN. MIRACULOUS ESCAPE FROM DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Sunbury News and Bulla and Melton Advertiser — 30 September 1893
RAILWAY ACCIDENT NEAR MACEDON. A CHILD FALLS OUT OF THE NOON TRAIN, MIRACULOUS ESCAPE FROM DEATH. A peculiar railway accident occurred on Tuesday on the main line near Mace don to the 12 noon passenger train from Bendigo. It appears Mrs Pearce, of Park-street, St. Kilda, was travelling back to Melbourne from Maryborough, in a first-class carriage, accompanied by two of her children. At the train was passing down the Macedon bank, a very steep gradieat, at the rate of about 60 miles an hour, the door of the carriage occupied by Mrs Pearce became un fastened, and Ruby, one of the children, a girl of four years, fell out. The child had been playing about the door, and the accident happened so suddenly that Mrs Pearce was unable to do anything to avert the consequences. In her terrible position she grew frantic, and her cries for assistance were heard by passengers in adjoining carriages. The occurrence was not witnessed by any one but Mrs Pearce, whose agony may be better imagined than...

THE CRIMINAL NAURD. (To THE EDITOR OF TIH SUNBURY NEWS.) SIR.-I was vastly interested in your report of the late public meeting held with the view of urging the Government to devote the Criminal Ward to the purpose for which it was specially de signed. The term specally' designed is used for the strongest possible reasons. because the building, by all accounts. was erected by the State for that clas: of p itieuts usually styled criminai lunatics. I take it that maniacs of that type are generally men, because c'r, ... "1. sense tells us thae there is no. necess , to ere t an absolute prison for :he incarceration of females, ihowever violent they may be.

About half-way between the hotel and the post-office one of the hind wheels smashed to atoms, bringing the horses to a standstill. This -was lucky for Mr Meyers, as it might have been a lot worse. This is the third time Mr Meyers has met with a similar accident. We are pleased to state that Mr A. F. Daniel, Shire Secretary, is fast re covering from his attack of rheumatism. A daughter of Mr Scannells was married on Wednesday to Mr Merritt, of Melbourne. We are having very unsettled weather here lately.
