A Little Game. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, ... — 9 August 1884

A Little Game. There is in London a well-known theatre contiguous to the office of an equally well known daily paper, and some of the windows of the one building are quite close to some in the other. Some little time ago certain fri volous spirits on the staff of the "daily" ob. served a pair of pheasants hanging up in one of the managerial windows of the theatre. The window was very near, the temptation very great, and with the aid of an inge. niously improved fishing-net, the pheasants passed from the abode of Thespis to the shrine of Minerva. Now that the adventur era had obtained their prize, what was to be done with it? A brilliant idea occurred to one of the party, and he sent the birds round by a messenger to the manager of the theatre, accompanied by his card, with the request that the manager would accept a trifling gift of game, and the suggestion that, if the manager had a private box to spare for that evening, he, the donor, would be very grateful. In a few minutes the m...

OUR ILLUSTRATION. THE HON.

Shortly there after he represented the same place in. Parlia. ment, and accepted office in a Ministry some years since. Then an interregnum in his political life occurred, during which he visited the old country. On his return to the colony he was elected for Maldoh, and public opinion pointed to him as the most fit and proper person to come to the front, when opportunity offered, to weld the various opposing parties together in one strong Ministry; and hence his elevation to, his present proud position of Premier of Vie.' toria. Mr. Service is a Scotchman.
