A JOKING ACTOR. [Newspaper Article] — Yea Chronicle — 19 February 1891
A JOZI Cr ACTOR. Aosx? the well-remembered characters of my dramatic life (writes Joseph Jefferson in his reminiscences) was an actor named Salisbury. Life was such a huge joke to him that he once sent a telegram to Mr. Rice, of the Chicago Threatre, apply for an engagement. The manager sent back this answer : "I would not engage you if you would come for nothihg," to which Salisbury replied :-" Terms accepted. Will be with you to-morrow." This man's memory was so wonderful that it was almost impossible to ask him a question without getting a Shakspearian quota tion in reply. If he was imperfect in his part, which was generally the case, he would interpolate speeches from other characters, talking the most absurd nonsense, and turning a serious scene into ridicule. . . . One morn ing the poor old laundress was dunning him for her hard earnings. lie was standing at the stage door surrounded by :a circle of admirers, and, turning furiously upon the old woman, he paraplhrased .Macbeth'...

Tnoss who have had a practical, or even theoretical, acquaintance with our goldiields do not need much to convince them that a great future awaits this district, in a mineralogical point of view. It may come in a few years, or it. may take more than a decade or two; but certain it is that sooner or later hundreds of men will be employed in working our gold bearing reefs and antimony lodes. Our t special reporter lately visited the Cathkin, and gave his views, based on considerable experience obtained on Bendigo, Ballarat, Clunes, and gold fields in other colonies, as to the golden treasures which lie hidden there, and only awaiting the advent of capital to bring them to the light of day. It is now whispered that the gold is too fine to be profitably worked; but this is no new theory, and at Stawell and other reefing districts in this colony the same objection...

MOLESWORTH [Newspaper Article] — Yea Chronicle — 26 February 1891
XOLEWB·WOTZ. (FROM OUR OWSN CtRRESPOSDENT.) O?r local "boniface," Mr. M'Connick, was unsuccessful in his endeavor to. obtain a license for a portion of the reserve here last week,at the mleeting of the Land ioard held in Alexandra, by reason of its being permanently reserved some few years back. Had he been successful, a dangerous pre cedent would have been at once established, and nothing could have prevented the whole of the reserve being taken up in girdlen areas, and what would some of our farmers do then! The property of Mr. Geo. Coles, black smith, was submitted to public auction last week, and realised the rather meagre sum of £98, Mlr. Jas. Elley, of Whanregarwen, being the lucky buyer. The horses, cows, pigs, and other lots realised, on the whole, fairly good prices, not a few finding their way to your township. Mr. Coles has determined to settle permanently in Mel bourne, and that he may succeed in his new venture is the wish of our inhabitants. The many friends of Mr. R. ...
