FREAKS OF GAMBLERS. [Newspaper Article] — Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle — 8 July 1882
FREAKS OF GAMBLERS. Enough has been said about the superstitions of gamblers to fill volumes, but the subject will never be exhausted as long has the passion for gambling exists. Among the " Gleanings from Monte Carlo "I have recently appeared tite following instances of the lunacy to which gamblers are subjected: "A well known Italian alarchesa never sits down without a talisman in the shape of a tiney glass bottle liddcn in the palm of her hand and containing a live insect ; andI one of the most indefatigable votaries of roulette, a Paris banker, positively declined, a few months ago, to commence operations, and returned to Nice, because a ticket bearing the number twenty-nine had been given him at the door in exchange for his overcoat. "Last winter two habitues were talking of a common friend of theirs, who, one of them remarked, was in deep aufliction on account of thle death olf his only son. ,* Very sad, indeed,' observed the other ! 'Iconclude that you ascertained the necessa...

THE IIEWErI MIUSE'PfES. Mr. Howett and Miss Eva Pear (Mrs. Hewett) g.ve the first of two entectaino mcents at Payne's Royanl Assembly Hall last evening. There was a very faiir attendance, although therec is no doubt but that the isclement weather prevented many from attending l who would other wise have been present. Tihe entertain itent put by Mr. and MIrs. Hoewett befors their patrons was pleasing and sparkling, and gave these talented artists full scope for displaying their hIistrionic and musical abilities.
