LOST & WON. A STORY OF A SISTER'S LOVE. CHAPTER II. NOT UTTERLY LOST! [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 9 February 1884
LOST & WON.. :-A ;STORY OF A SISTER'S LOVE.: B' :V J. M. B. ' CIIAPTER Ii. .. NOT UTTERLY LOST .. N It:is not a pleasant task to'rccall the stages by which Willie had fallen into such a depth of of dishonor, as resealed in the former chapter. Yet'as a .warning for the young people of another generation, it may be said that his vanity was first aroused by the better dress and more free expenditure of'soine of his compan ions.' :These had money for costly scarves, canes, glaring studs and watch guards, for entry into places of amusement, and other sundry items which his salary, liberal as it was, could not meet, when the cost of his home was first deducted. In an evil hour he forestalled his allowance; "so as not to look mean" with his associates, and not being called to account, as so much confidencewasplaced inhim,thesumsgrew more :and larger, till, to avoid exposure, the amount ofa' cheque was retained by him. Hlis terror .at the position he was in led him to make a 'confid...
THE LOOKOUT. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 9 February 1884
THjE LOOKOUT; ' Look out down there, for I'm about to shoet. YANKEE PorT. The Railway Commissioners cannot be complimented on the recent general order issued that-no information is to be given to the press save only through the secretary under penalty of instant dismissal of the informant.: Most people think that as the public own the railways and pay the official they ought to be able to get a little information without filtration through the Secretary's Office, even if it should gain the proper official tone and shade. thereby. A gentleman is said to have stepped aboard a flag ship of the fleet and when asked, his name replied " never mind. I am one of the owners," and so he was as a tax payer, and I fancy that the press will be able to obtain the particulars of railway affairs for public information even if denied. by official etiquette. That new Surveyor must be looked after, or our Public Works will assume gigantic dimensions. According to a' copy of his report given in a "vill...

"RICKET. ' FOOTSCRAY v, V, ARRA. BEc I Tbismatch we plyed on Srhmday, on he ground of the latter, and resulted after a very pleasant game in a draw. The pretty little. ground was never in better order, and the side winning the toss had. a decided advantage. Unfortunately for the visitors, the local captain cried head, and head it was, and punctually at three Duncan and M. Irwin appeared to the bowling of Larritt and Nunweek. The latter was well on the spot, but the former could get no work on, and with the score at 21, retired in favor of Scott, whose fourth ball Duncan stopped with his leg instead of his bat, 1-14-2I, Williams quickly made 5 when he was well caught by Baird off Scott, 2--5 -26. T. Irwin came in and lifted one of Scott's out of the ground, a fine hit. In the same over M. Irwin was run out through some brilliant fielding of Baird's, 3-12-31. Nun week up to this time had bowled 8 overs for 8 runs. T. Irwin and Hardbottle were both bowled by Scott, and the board showed...

Salvationists. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 9 February 1884
Salvationists. In a former issue wc referred to the invasion of this demonstrative sect, and expressed the hope that, the borough would never again he degraded with their presence. Unfortunately these representatives of the "Blood and Fire," "Death and Glory" persuasion, are gifted with all the thickskinned tenacity usually dis played by ignorance and presumption, and when they once get afooting cling like vermnin. On Saturday last they again put in n nappear ance, and pegging out on the same vacant lot, commenced howling and bawling to their mumbo-jumbo, for assuredly it cannot be the Meek and'Lowly, who counselled humility and secret 'prayer, with whon they intercede, but some imaginary deity as gross in attributes as their own utterances. As the great majority of. residents are not, like its, alllicted with the propinquity of these slangy itinerants, we have procured a copy of their organ, the IVar Cry, and give the following selections, to show the manner of men and women, who p...

Beyond doubt any member- of lthe community has the right of employing these Hindoos on. the 'most:profitai'e terms ..they can arrange; '.biit2 w" are convinced that it is not right in any, sense to import the members' of ani inferior race from a 'foreign coitrty to compete against the men and womend who are the 'citizens, and who support the institutions and laws of' the colony.
