SAM SILCHESTER. AN AUSTRALIAN STORY,* BY NORMAN WAKEFIELD. CHAPTER XI.—CONTINUED. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record — 5 November 1886

SAMf SILCHESTER. AN AUSTRALIAN STORY,* By NORMAN WATKEFIELD. CIIAPien XI.-CONTINUED., "Joe," he said, addressing the man in charge of the cattle, "tie my horse up to the back of this buggy; I am going to drive this lady along the road for a mile or so." Joe hitched the horse on, and away they drove again, and when they came to the place whree Amy had jumped out, they found the captain and Mlr. Blake there also. When the captain saw that the horse was bolting with his two friends, he looked round for some horse with which to give chase, and at that moment one of the dairy carts was driven up to the gates. To the surprise of the boy in charge, the captain jumped in, and called on Blake to follow, which he did in haste. " Out with this ballast," the captain cried, as he turned out the large empty milk cans on to the road, and then flogging the little chestnut pony, lie went as fast as lie could after his friends. The bends in the road pre vented him from keeping the buggy in sight, and...

PASSING NOTES. BY SIMPLETON [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record — 5 November 1886

PASSING NOTES. B; dtMrLETOx What is the matter with our Legisla __ tire Assembly? Last week the members actually discusse.l a question of economly, and somen of them seriously proposed to dock £300 off the £1800 a year which a grateful country pays for the valable services of Mr. dle Verdon, C ,mmissioner of Titles, and Dr. Quick, who seems to have a weakness for revolutions, was among the wouhll-e economisers and had the badl taste and indelicacy to point oat that Verdon was receiving £8300 a-year more than the County Court judges, who had to work--mind you, wtork for their money. The Commissioner of Titles inmpljy sits still and waits for some one to ask a question. Then the oracle speaks, and earns lis salary. Don't I wish fortune haulniade me a Commissioner of Titles, but let it be understood that this wish is strictly in'parenthesis. It was also shown that lMr. de Venlon is paid £300 a-year more than the hlailway Commissioners, and subsequently asserted that a Commissioner of R...

ONLY BLOWING. To the Editor of the Traralgon Record. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record — 5 November 1886

ONLY BLOWING. To the Elitor of th Trarargon Reonrd. Smr,-Having accidentally picked up a recent copy of the "Record" in which issue an eye witness attempts to describe an incident of the late storm atTraralgon; in that correspondence eye witness states that the wind encircled a lady and was about taking her off to a better land where weare told cleanliness is next to godliiess. Allow me to inform your readers that the general opinion is that "blowing" was the order of the day, and pretty "tall" blowing too. That the lady in question was in danger no one doubts; that her thoughts in the then hour other trouble might have led her to think of the happy land far far away, no one knubts: but as to her being stuck in a roof with Charley by her side many think its only "blowing." Eye Witness then goes on to describe the divi sion ot the spoil-half for Charley, half for the boy, and half for the Salvation Army. I cry for the ahvation lot; two halves are enough not ofmone whole. Had Eye Witn...

THE V.R.C. SPRING MEETING. MELBOURNE CUP. [Newspaper Article] — Traralgon Record — 5 November 1886

TILE I.R.C. SPRING JfEETI G. MELBOURNE CUP. (From our own Correspondent.) The great festival this year seems harder to describe than it has ever been before. From 1861, when the first Cup was won by Archer to 1886, when the last Cup was won by Arsenal, there have been wonderful changes in the course, the number of entries, the financial position of the Club, and in the number of spectators, The 3,000 or 4,000 spectators who witnessed the first Cup race, had swelled to probably 150,000 to witness the last. Though many of the most prominent of our colonists were absent, the presence of so many distinguished visitors gave brilliancy to the festival. In the vice regal arty were, His Excellency the Governor, Lady Loch, Master Loch, Lord and Lady Carrington, Sir W. C. Robinson, Governor of South Austra lia, Sir George C, Strahan, Governor or Tasmania, Rear-Admiral Tryon, the Misses Greene; Lord Deerhurst, Cap tain Tnmill, Mr Seymour Fort, and WMr E. M.

"MODERATE, Lur PROGRESSIVE." (Published over. Tes:lay & Friday morning.) FRI DAY. -OVEIBDER 5, ISS6. THE CARNIVAL. Tues Melbourne Cup race of 1886 has b leen a not less brilliant " vent than has been witnessed in previous years. For months past the floodwaters of the great racing season have been gather ing, and on Tuesday last at Flemington they culmilnated in the gratest flood of the kind ever yet witnessed in Aus tralia. Before the great racing carni val, everything else in Australia seems to pale. lFrodball is the only other sport which in any wayway approaches it, ,but even that falls a long way short of horse racing in the matter of awak ening public interest. I-How long the Cup day will continue to be the great holiday it now is, cannot of course be predicted, but it will doubtless, for some time yet to come, continue to grow, until the Flemington course will Ibecome immortalized, and stories of it will I.e handed down from one generna tion to another, in the pages of...
