GENERAL WEYLER'S ROMANCE [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 14 August 1898

GEN£R¿L WEÏXE&'S ROilASCÍ The romantic story ot General Wey ! ler's marriage is told by a correspondent! of the "Daily Telegraph." The fatuous Spanish officer had attained the rank' of lieutenant-colonel, and was in com- mand of a crack infantry regiment, when he fell deeply in lore with a sin- gularly beautiful girl-like himself, a nafivje of one of the Balearic Isles-of humble origin, being the daughter of respectable, hard-working peasants. She j had not even been taught to read or j write. Weyler did not disclose his I matrimonial"projects to his family and' friends, while making every prepara- tion. Twenty-four hours, however, be-; fore the 'time fixed for the celebration ; of the wedding ceremony, the officers of j his regiment received from him written repuesta to meet him at a certain church door early on the following morn- ing. At the hour indicated they found him awaiting them near the main en- trance, and when they had gathered round him in a respectful semi-circ...

SYDNEY NOTES. v QUEENSLAND V. NEW SOUTH WALES. The Banana land boys, in their second match against New Sooth Wales, sac-' ceeded in reversing the result of_the pre-j vious match, asd won by 18 points to 16. The game was a good one, being J fast, open, and attractive from the start. The northern colony's represen- tatives won the toss, and, playing-from the Randwick end, very quickly scored, Colton marking just inside the N.S.W. twenty-five, and M'Cowan added the goal Almost immediately after Ev.ms finish- ed a fine run by getting over the line, but M'Cowan was nc* successful in his attempt to convert. Play for some time was from end to end, but after several magnificent efforts by the Kew South Wales boys, Gregory succeeded in cross- ing the Queensland line, and Shortland, by a beautiful kick, converted. Hie score at half-time was-Queensland, 7 points : New South Wales, 5 points. On resum- ing, play for some time was in neutral territory, but at length. Hiller got the ball from a pa...

FOOTBALL. VICTORIAN JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 14 August 1898

I . FOOTBALL. VICTORIAN JOTTINGS. | Throughout the competition for the premiership in Victoria tho games have been well contested, but Fitzroy's game against Geelong was one of the grandest exhibitions during the season. Dp to : the last quarter the game, which from the start had been a fast and scientific one, was anybodys, and when, just after the last change, the Geelongs added two more goals, and made their score 4 goals 6 behinds to Fitzroy's I goal 7 behinds, it anneared to be aU over bar shouting. But the numbers were not up yet, and before the crowd had realised the posi- tion Kiernan, who had been brought back to strengthen the defence, was for- ; ward, and had marked finely, and, with a good kick, raised the t n o flags. In less than ten minutes Dalton had scored two more goals, and Noonan still another, and Geelong were beaten. It was a marvellous finish, in which every man' played finely. Tne exchanges were bril- liant, and the goals all scored from good marks and kicks....

THE BLOOD DRINKERS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 14 August 1898

THE BLOOD DRINKERS. I There is a picture in this year's ' Salon that has caused a deal of interest. It represents the drinkers of blood at the Abattoirs. The picture had a cer- tain fascination over nie (Paris corres ¡ pondent of 'To-Day"), and I went down to La Toilette bist week to see this Borgian repast. In many ways it is I a revolting sight, and in some ways it was pathetic. You passed through j the vast anny of brawny slaughtermen, and literally waded through blood. Its sickly odor permeated the air, and the bellowing of oxen and the bleating of lambs seemed a fitting accompaniment to the whole scene. The poor beasts 1 were going in in full life and strength to keep alive those who wanted a Utile more of the existence that Providence begrudged them. There were young girls and old men. All were anaemic, and in most cases, I should say, con- sumptive. There was a strange mix- ture of fustain and chevoit, and of silk J and cheap cashmere. The older hands i seemed only too anxiou...

MORE GOSSIP ABOUT NUGGETS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 14 August 1898

MORI GOSSIP ABOUT KUGG3SIS«' Mr. G. E. Walsh, contributes to a re- cent "Cassier's Magazine" an interesting gossipy article concerning '"Fortunes in I Nuggets of Gold," in which, he carefully '-collects from a wide range of authorities I thc story of the finding of the huge nug- gets of the precious metal. Up to the present Klondyke has failed to yield any monster of the kind which added so tremendously to the excitement of min- ing in California and Australia. The ! largest nugget ever found was picked up in Australia in 1852. It weighed 2231bs., or a tenth of a ton, and was worth £11,000. The largest Californian nugget was a long way short of the Aus- tralian monster. Mr. Walsh says i The largest and finest nugget was un- earthed in California on November 18, 1854, at Camp Corona, in Tuolumme county. It was found bv Oliver Martin, and in the history of gold mining in that State it is known as the Oliver Martin Chunk. Pictures and bronze fac-similes of this wonderful piece of gold ...

TURF NOTES. (By Young Un.) [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 14 August 1898

TURF NOTES. (By Yoong Un.) j A Carbine double for the two Cope Clarion and War God. ' The Kanowna Sacing Club meeting en the 24th inst, promises to be a big success. A number of the good horses running at the Coolgardie and Kal- goorlie meetings will stay over for the Kanowna meeting. The WjLT.C; powers that exist have taken away November 9-the Prince of Wales's Birthday-from Tattersalls Club, and given them November 12 in ben thereof. Whereat Tatfs Chib can- not be particularly pleased. The W.A.T.C. will now be in the field em Proclamation Day, October 21, and on the Prince of WalesV Birthday. Quite right that the premier club should . have all big holiday dates. Yet it is unfair that the racing-date prcning knife-should be applied to the Canning Park Turf Club, who have been deprived of one of their- ChrisMiias mct-iing dates, and a holidzy at that.
