The Independent "ONWARD AND UPWARD." FOOTSCRAY, SATURDAY, JANUARY 19. 1884. Improvements. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 19 January 1884

"ONWARD AND UPWARD." FOOTSCRAY. SATURDAY, JANUARY g19. 1884.: Improvements. , - THE resolutions submitted by Cr. W Mitchell at. the Council table':on: Wednesday evening are .deserving of more than: a.passing notice, as :their influence on our future can hardly be over-rated. Next to the want of funds to'carry out the many and important new works required, and keep those already done in an efficient state of repair, we are hampered by the primi tive style of doing everything required at the slowest rate and greatest possible cost. Cr. Mitchell proposes to obviate this by bringing toourassistance modern appliances in the shape of machinery, and his brother councillors unanimously agreed with him in expending £iooo in purchasing a stonebreaking plant, and also in making so,ooo ,yards of asphalt footpath during the current year. In a few brief but terse remarks he pointed out that although ways and means are the apparent difficulty, the estimated income would warrant them in the expendi...

"As gentle as a dove," was not well   exemplified in Court on Thursday, when the illegal detention of some silver plate was the subject of a suit.

LIFE OF AN EDITCR [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 26 January 1884

LIFE OF AN EDITCR Before you go for an editor, young man, pause and take abig think ! Do not rush into the editorial .business too hastily. Look around, and see if there is not an omnibus or some meat cart to drive, some soil somewhere to be tilled, or a clerkshiu to be filled-any thing that is reputable and healthy, rather thin going for an editor, which is a bad business at best. We are not a horse, and consequently have not been called upon to furnish a motive power for a threshing machine; but we fancy. that the life of an editor who is forced to write, whether he feel like it or not, is much like that of the steed in question. If the yeas and neighs could be obtained, we believe that the intelligent horse would decile that. the threshinmg machine is preferable to the sanctum editorial. The editor's work is never done. He is drained incessantly, and no wonder that he dries up prematurely. Other people can attend banquets, weddings, etc., visit halls.of, dazzling light, get drunk...

---BOUND---THE WORLD. ; .BY A 1OOTSCRAYAN. London, October 31st,-I have just returned from a delightful trip to the Isle ofa Wight, which Imade in ccmpanywith a young gentle min, whose taste and mine agreed well together. He is a studious young man, thoroughly well up in electricity and experi mental chem's'ry, a. good musician and excel lent company. We did a good deal of this trip on the "wallaby track," minus the swag. To my thinking there is no travelling so pleasant for strong young fellows in rude health and in good company as walking. There is a freedom about it that is charming. You can take any route you please ; sit down or go on just when it stits you. Leaving London at 9.20 a.m. on Thursday we reached Portsmouth at 12.30 (we did not walk that stage). Of course the first thing to be done was to get a boat and go off to the old Victory lying at anchor in the harbor. She is kept as a sort of training-ship for lads wait ing for appointments in the navy. There were also some ...
