A MELBOURNE SUBURB. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 28 April 1883
A MELBOURNE SUBURB. The following very interesting contribution is supplied by a Maryborough resident who has lately been taking a holiday in the neigh- bourhood of the metropolis:- "On a recent visit to the metropolis the writer was impressed with the go-a-headism which at every turn manifests itself, more especially in the suburban borough of Footscray, with its southern ward Yarraville. Doubtless amongst your readers will be found those whose memories will carry them back some twenty five years, when in one of the small shops a few doors east of Queen street, on the north side of Collins street, stood a portly looking man, day after day, week after week, month after month, and year after year, expatiating upon the value of land as set forth on gigantic plans by which he was surrounded in proposed townships to be named Footscray, Yarraville, and Maidstone, &c., and endeavoring to excite a speculative spirit in the breasts of his auditors, and induce them to invest their su...

THE COUNCIL AND THE FOOTBALL CLUB. TO THE EDITOR OF THE INDEPENDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 28 April 1883
THE COUNCIL AND THE FOOTBALL CLUB. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; TO THE EDITOR OF THE INDEPENDENT. SIR, - In the report of the proceedings of of the Footscray Council which appeared in your &nbsp; &nbsp; issue of the 14th inst., it is stated that the Council had again refused to comply with the request of the Footscray Football Club to &nbsp; grant them the use of Garden Reserve for the purpose of playing matches on rainy days, when the ground is unfit to play on. &nbsp; Now, sir, I cannot for the life of me see what possible objections that body can have to grant such a simple request. Their only reason for refusing is they fear damage will be done &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; to the trees &c. If the councillors would only visit the ground (I am sure very few of them have seen it lately), they would see that there is less fear of damage being done to the trees than they imagine, as the boundaries ...

FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 5 May 1883
,FOOTBALL. ' come to the beginning of their fourth season, ind it is hoped that the coming one will be one of the most successful that the club has gone through. Although last season was very fair, yet, when a match was to be played off our own ground only eleven or twelve men would turn up to do battle. The match com mittee therefore ought to take particular notice of this circumstance this sea.on, and make an example of those members who will not turn up off their own ground by leaving thent out of the team making no exceptions whether good or bad. T!he club have gone to a deal of expense and trouble this season, in making the ground on lwhich they play level, by filting up a great portion of the many holes it is composed of. In regard to players the prospects are good, the followring new members having joined tlis season :-Anderson and HI-ord from the Foots cray Juniors; Kelly from Yarraville; Carew from Starof Carlton?; Bailey from Castlemaine; and V.

QUOITS. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 5 May 1883
QUOITS. On Hickey's new quioiting ground at the Railway Hotel, Yairravill, on.Saturday last, about three hundred people assembled to witness the match for. £.o between Bromley of Collingwood, and Garner of Footscray. Both players are very old veterans. At the commencement of the game Garner obtained a strong lead. .At half-time the score was Garner, 3 ; Bromley, Ir. After an ad ournment for twenty minutes play was again got on with, and Bromley showed one of the best exhibitions of skilful quoiting that has been seen for a long time. But.Garier once more got on to the pin, and although his opponent made several desperate attempts to catch him, it was all to no purpose, Garner finally winning by 26 points, and thus adding one more to his already long list of victorious contests. The total scores were-Garner, 61; Bromley, 35. It is rumoured that Bromnley's backers are dissatisfied with the result, but we understand they can have their revenre by calling at the Sertsrman office with a ...

GOOD MANNERS. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 5 May 1883
In the city of wVinchester, Englandlthere isa college ,'which has feor .its motto Manners maketh -ye man," that old' sayiing still holds good and could be well applied to this com munity, there is nothing so char;iing as' good and pleasant manners, (not company manners which are most artificial and'easily seen through), but natural ones ihich' ari :the out come of education and inaste refinement and whiich have the power to make plain'people fascinating and attractive, and lovely ones more lovely still.

DOMESTIC SERVANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 5 May 1883
DOMESTIC SERVANTS. IIow to secure good domestic servants who will give their services for a reasonable period of time, is, of all social questions now under consideration very important. In Australia and the sister colony New Zealand, the general complaint is want of servants, even in the ?'old country" for years past there has .been a diffiutiy in getting good .and steady girls; an efficient and clever servant was considered quite a treasure, (very justly so). At .the same time there was no dependence upon that "treasure" remaining any length of time in her place. It is quite within the remembrance of people now living how servants used to renman for years in one famly thereby gaining the aticetion and respect of those whom they served. Solite one must be in fault to answer for this very uneatisfactory state of things, but where does the blame lie? All niistresses are not unjust or unreasonable, and do not over burden .their servants with work, and yet the inconvenience and annoyan...
