The Gambling Spirit. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Morning Post — 18 December 1907

The Gambling Spirit. , In tlie notes on somp^ recent shoot- ing Ly tlie Mulgrave Rifie-tjjyjb men- , xion is made of a practice which, if allowed to continue unchecked, may result in seriously damaging tho popu Iarity of rifle clubs and alienating much of the support and encourage- ment now accorded to the sport of rifle shooting. This is thc introduc- tion of tho gambling spirit, which our correspondent states is gaining a footing at Mulgrave matches not- withstanding the advice and re- commendation of the: Cairns Rifle Club to the neighboring institution. It docs not come within thc province of this ]>op£r to preach tin anti-gnm bling sermon in general terms, nor lo condemn those forms of sport with which betting is identified as a custom, but it endorses tho, remarks of its Mulgrave correspondent that thc introduction of monetary specula- tion into rifle shooting is likely to provo a menace to that particular form of amusement, and pernicious in the highest degree.

An account of his discovery of the new element which he calls victorium has recent- ly been given by Sir William Crookes, F.B.S., to tho Boyal Society.
