VARIETIES. In an East London Opium Den. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 6 April 1889

VARIETIES. ? In an East London Opium Den. Smiley was now on his mettle. He wanted to show that he was a good ' slummer.' 'Well,' he said, 'If you care to go a little further, I can show you some very queer nooks. You've heard of opium smoking in China. I can show you an opium den down in Shadwell were a man can smoke liimslf to death as comfortably and cheaply as if he were in Canton.' Fitzboodle jumped at the idea. They went down Commercial-road on a tramcar, and when they left it Smiley struck off into the network of streets between that thoroughfare and the Docks. In a narrow lane he turned into a corner public-house, the chief decora tion of which was a great shining yellow dragon of Chinese porcelain, which the land lord had bought years before from one of his sailor customers, and which had given its name to the establishment. The Yellow Dragon was a favourite house with sailors, British and foreign. The bar and the parlour were hung with pictures of ships; and curios, chiefly...

NOVEL. + Dun raven Ranch. By CHAHLES KING {in Lippincotth). (CONTINUED.) CHAPTEK XV. Sweet-tempered a fellow as Mr. Perry con fessedly was, there was something in the stranger's couducfc that galled him inexpres sibly. Tho tenets of ' society,1 the formali ties of metropolitan life, have no recognition -whatsoever on the wide frontier when once the confines of the garrison are passed. Out on the broad expanse of the Plains the man who shuns the greeting of his fellow is set down at once as a party whose antecedents are shadowy and whose character is suspi cious ; and never before in his experience of several years and hie wanderings from the Yellowstone to the Washita, had Ned Perry met a frontier's-man who fled at sight of him, except one horse-tliief. From his handsome mount, his garb, and his general appearance, Perry set this stranger down as one of the Englishmen residing at the ranch. It was not fear of arrest and capture that sent him scowling away across the prairie ; it was...

The skating season has again set in, and it will be a relief to find that cricket is disposed of for at , least another season. The game appears to be at a complete discount in this town-if I am tojudge so from the fact that the recently-formed Albion C.C. is, through a system of mismanagement, in a state of complete disorganization, and must cer tainly go to the wall if some steps are not speedily taken to alter the existing state of aflairs. Meet ings are called, and no notification is sent to the members (or even to the committee), the result being that a quorum ennnot be got together. This kind of mismanagement would effectually ruin the prospects of any club in the country.
