EVICTED-AN INCIDENT OF THE LATE FLOODS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 August 1889

EVICTED— AN INCIDENT OF THE LATE FLOODS. In a numbor of ways Australia resembles America. Everything they do in tho latter place is on a largo scale. If there is a flood there aro generally a thousand or two souls drowned, and a fow millions of p'ropo'rty lost; ' If theio is a railway acoident the victims can lie counted by the score, while a fire never burns less than aj square of buildings. So hero it is either a feast or a famine. In Victoria if there is a drought, it generally lasts long enough to causo no cud of damage, and as you got further north it can bo counted hy tho year; with rain it is tho same. If the sonson is to he wot it generally ends in a flood. Tho pre sent year is perhaps 011c of- the worst in some respects that has yet occurred. In tho first place, there was a drought that caused tho deaths of some hundreds of thousands of sheep, and now wo liavc floods that are causing nearly as much destruction in another way.

THE HOME OF THE ROCK WALLABY. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 August 1889

THE HOME OF THE ROOK WALLABY. Unlike his relative, tho brush wallaby, the rock wallaby is comparatively speaking a rara avis iu Viotoriii, for while, the former can be. found within a very short distance of Melbourne, one hns to travel to the rocky and precipitous hills of Northern Gippsland to meet tho latter, in his own home. There, used to ho a good number oil a hill at the outskirts: of tho Omoo Plains, and another lot on the C'ohungrj, but the demand , for skins has thinnedjheir ranks, and in a fow * years they will probably bo as extinct as tho dodo. Like. all other animal*, tlioy take thoir ciilor from thoir surroundings, and as the rabbit ami kangaroo in salt bush country are of .a bluisii tinge so the, -rock wallaby, is rod, the color of tho rocks among which'ho lives.

It was about 3.15 in the afternoon when the fog coin - menced to; make its appearance, and it was nut long before, the whole atmosphere became dump and clammy.' By 5 o'clock , the mist had in creased to such an extent that anyone could only see a few yards-ahead, and the street traffic was considerably delayed ? in consequence.. Its effect upon the gas and other illuminating power' was. peculiar, the many gas lamps giving forth, a very feeble light, which could not even bo'seen.many yards away ; and even the electric light, powerful as it is, could not successfully pierce through, tho gloom. Both vehicular and tram; traffic had to. bo conducted with great 'card, and all tho trains were run at liaK speed, with the bells continually ringing, whilst on' the suburban railway- lines tho offici...

THE COLONIAL STAGE. VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 August 1889

TUK COLONIAL ST.UJK. A-ICTORIA. Dranuitio affairs have not been specially active during the mouth. At tho Princess's Theatre Miss Jennie Lee has been appearing in her well kit own character of Jo, taken from Dickens's novel of Bleak Hoaic. The lady- herself hi re spect to her acting leaves nothing to be desired, but hot company is deoidedly weak, and un worthy of supporting one who must be allowed to be an artist. The press has been unanimous in its praise of Miss Lee, as it might well be, but has shown no marked disposition to givo much encouragement to Mr. J. P. Burnett, who affords vory indifferent support to the leading character. Tho season of Mi^s Katie I'utuuin at the Opera Houro was not unlike a failure artistically and monetarily. She appealed in a series of pieces, which in almost every instance, proved a frost. It was not until she attempted a dramatisation of Little . Nell that- n portion, at least, of the press spoke out. Her defects then became prominently glaring, ani...

Hubert Arnold is in town with tho object^ of toaohing, as high class concerts are not plentiful enough. Tho success of tho newly formed orchestral society is considered doubtful, owing to the lack of enthusiasm displayed by the per forming members.
