SPORTING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 21 October 1914
SPORTING NOTES. [By Rambler.] Uncle Sam won'his second Caul field Cup on Saturday fiom Rath lea and St. Carwyne. With a 101b. penalty, Uncle Srm * will have to carry 9st. 2ib. in the Melbourne Cup. While running near the front at the home turn in the Caulfield Cup, Anna Carlovna's leg gave way and she, naturally, rapidly dropped back, finishing among the rear division. It is unlikely she will race again. The mare was an equal favorite with St. Carwyne at 7 to 2, while the win ner's quotation was 9 to 2.

Many people in this district will view with pleasure Mr Raff's full ordinal ion as a Presbyterian Minister. — The gentleman under notice is the father of Mr G. Raft", so well and favorably known in Qucm ba took, not alone among the adherents of the Presbyterian Church,' but all denominations/

In that struggle for which Fate had prepared him in mind and spirit so inefficiently he had been long since well beaten into a pattern for submission and drudgery. Now, at least, he was irrevocably a poor machine none too accurate even for small performances, doing whatever task was set for him by those who, because they were everything that he was not, controlled his mean and trifling fortunes, AH day long ho worked in a big room full of desks and active young men, where the clerical business of a great factory was ...
