BLACK DINGO. CHAPTER XIV.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 7 April 1894

BLACK DINGO. [By J. J. Sheridan.] CHAPTER XIV.— Continued. During the whole night the clergy man wandered about, bis garments soaked by the heavy rain. He scarcely noticed the discomfort or heeded the fatigue that was steadily weakening his Huibs— the dawn at length pierced the cloud-laden sky and lent a misty ghostlike aspect to the sodden land scape. The approach of day aroused him to contemplate his position — he was miles from home, muddy from heel to waist, hatless, sopping, faint and limp. He smiled wanly as he realised his plight and thought of the charitable comments his parishioners would make if they beheld him. Drinking would be the mildest crime they would credit him with. He seemed to hear dear Mrs. Brown narrating to Mrs. Fling ' It's quite true, my dear, he was out all night rolling in the mud, dead drank, and they say he gambles too. Nice doings for a parson I'm sure ' The thought of the tattlers' spiteful tongue spurred him to increased activity and he toiled painfu...

FREE SPEE6H. OUR PLATFORM. From time to time we hear a mur mur that this journal has no set political platform, We do not care to waste a column of our valuable space in laying down a number of planks ; but we rather prefer to keep The Clipper in touch with the im mediate wants of the people, and we are not conceited enough to erect a structure that is to be the sure panacea for all evils.

Wooll nough, is the most unique figure in t,h« House of Assembly, and although made of the most mediocre clay, from his very want of any political principle he has become quite a notoriety, and if he were not in the House it is hard to conceive how the Dobson Ministry couM have re mained in power so long, for Mr. Woollnough has constituted himself their good fairy and guardian. Changing his colors are to him a de lightful exercise, and with constant practice he has developed the art to the acme of perfection. In the course of one day he will be found canvassing the most democratic members in the House, striving ostensibly to form a third party on Liberal lines, failing which he will be found getting to gether a caucus of Conservative country members, and then at night true to his role he will be in his place on the ...

MUSIC AND THE STAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 7 April 1894

Music and the Stage. [By Krino.1 The benefit concert in aid of Mrs. Knight and family, by the City Band, at the Town Hall on Wednesday evening was a genuine success The band played Hermann's Overture to the ' Couronne d' or' and the 'Covalleria Rusticana,' Intermezzo, especially the former in their usual stylish way, and the Filibusters, under Mr. T. W. Hopkins able baton, showed well in Hume's ' Orynthia' and particularly in Sugg's ' Dance at the Forge.' Mr. Foley's character imperso nation, his amateur tenor's painful effort to fall like a soldier, and both the Cashful and the ' Cheeky ' Schoolboy's recitations were inimitable, and so the delighted audience testified by their plaudits.
