It is evident, ho says, that the police exercised greater forbearance than anyone could be warranted in expecting of them. ;..... If women will mix themselves in such a fray then it i3 their own fault if they are accidentally hurt, and certainly they are not to be surprised at it.

Poole) being in the chair. The Secretary presented the draft balance Bheet for 1893, showing that in spite of the financial crisis through which the colony had passed, the reoeip.ts for the year were almost exactly the same as for the previous year, whioii was considered by the com mittee to be a strong indication, of the hold which had been gained by the Association in the com munity.

ECHOES OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 16 February 1894
ECHOES OF SPORT. The next race meeting of the Newcastle Jockey Club is fixed for March 7 and 8, when .£450 will be distributed in prize money. Unfortunately the dates chosen by the coaly city (Jiuu ana cne JHurrurundi people are the same, notwithstanding that the last-named were first in the field. Then, too, Quirindi and Walcha sports men hold their reunions on the same days, so that all the meetings will in a measure suffer. This could easily have been avoided. From statistics a London paper gathers that more horses ran in races last year than in any pre vious season. In 1797, 48 2-years-old, 161 3yeare old, 122 4-years-old, and 262 of 5 years and upward —total, 593— ran, as compared with 1108, 727, 399, 384— total, 2618 in 1893. The total value of stakes won during 1893 (by first winners only), exclusive of matches and private sweepstakes, was £428,391 on England, £11,107 in Scotland, and £18,441 in Ireland, or £70,789 more than nine years ago.

She was a fine, bright, promis ing girl, and it was in her brave attempt to rescue a little sister from the attack of a furious cow that nhe met with the accideut that caused her death. The savage beast inflicted a deep wound in the side of the head with the point of her horn. No fatal results were anticipated until a few days before tho girl's death, when tetanus set in causing as usual in such cases intense agony. Her death occurred on Tuesday last, just a week from the day of the accident. The coffin was born to the grave by her school companions, and was laid to rest in the Oaergwrle Church of England cemetery. A fine little boy, aged four and half years, of Mr. Luke Sullivan's died last we^k ; and this morn ing tho infant daughter of Mr. M. Bird died after a long continued and intense suffering.
