THE LATE ATHLETIC SPORTS. To the Editor of the Burra Record. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 14 November 1879

THE LATE ATHLETIC SPORfS. To tie Editor of tie Burra Btcord. BIB.— Being present the sports last Monday aad swung bow openly Watson allowed Corey to win the ' Champion Bace,** I trust the Committee will thoroughly inveatieate the an in- ana onng me. cHender to account, at it was plainly shown in the 220 yds Handicap where Corey had six yards start and Watson heat him easily 1 that Watson did not to %ia the Chamnijn. It is quite certain that the publio will not subscribe in the fu'ure to the sports if such goings on are allowed in the clnb ; especially our leading tradesmen who subscribed so handsomely for but Mondays sports. I hope the Committee will not altar this matter to quietly die out, bnt that they will take sneh action, that will be a warning to future runners. ^ I atn, Sir, &-! , Oi»E OF THE PUBLIC.

The Umpire lay and idly rolled in this dead calm; Macleod paced up and down the deck in the solemn stillness. Hamish threw a tarpeulin over the sky-light of the saloon to. cover tbe bewildering light from below ; and thm, as the time went slowly by, darkness eame over the fond and the sea. They were alone with the night, and the lapping wares, and the stars. About tea o'clock there was a load rattling of blocks and cordage — the first puff of a coming breeze had struck her.
