Boxing with a Horse. A very vicious and ill-tempered horse, be longing to a well-known -Melbourne sport, was' eating his head off. in a very luxuriant loose box, because there was no one in the establishment.of the gentleman to whom he belonged who had the courage orstrength to 1 enter'his stable to saddle and bridle him.

The Echo. A REMINISCENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington & Sorrento Advertiser — 21 May 1887
The Echo. A REMINISCENCE, Bob Rallit was a great comic singer in his day. Not of an ultra-refined school, perhaps, but of a genuinely funny one, which was swamped by the boisterously inane, brainlessly flash "Champagne Charlie " division some two or three and twenty years ago, the leading representatives of which,' wisely electing to be independent of a humor. of which they did not possess a particle, relied on a load get-up, catchy tunes; a copious vocabulary of slang, and unlimited cheek. Whether the change was for the better it is not my intention to discuss, nor does it in any way concern this narrative. Bob was essentially a " town artist "J--a cockney of cockneys; and though it cannot truthfully be said that "he never performed out of London," his visits to the country were rare. The following story, however, is related of one of those few and far bd tween occasions when Mr. Rallit gave the benighted provincials a taste of his quality. Bob was singing at the public hall of a s...
