THE LATE MR. JOHN CAMPBELL. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 30 August 1883

THE LATE MR.JOHN CAMPBELL. In common with every resident of North Gippsland, we feel it incumbent upon us to express our sorrow and re gret at the rather sudden death of one of the oldest pioneers of Gippsland, who has just passed away from us, in the person, of the late Mr. Johln Campbell, of Glencoe. Words can hardly pour tray the universal feeling of regret shared in by all classes, rich and poor, old and young, by whom the deceased was looked upon almost in the light of a personal friend. His many sterling qualities, high personal integrity, cheer- ful genial temperament, genuine kind ness of heart, and sympathetic feeling to every one who happened to be in trouble, endeared him-to an extent seldom granted to our fellow-men-to all sections of the community. He was ever ready to give his cheerful and valuable assistance for all charitable purposes, assist in every movement for the public good, and took an active and personal part in the initiation and progress of the Caledonian a...

NORTH GIPPSLAND COURSING CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 3 September 1883

NORTH GIPPSLAND OURU SING CLUB.. The final meeting of this club for the' season was brought to a conclusion on Thursday last, the attendance being very meagre, which for the last and closing one wewouldexpect to havebeen large, and appears to show that the supporters of the club are getting rather lukewarm in the sport. Hares were not very numerous, and the ground being rather rough, several of the courses were run in a very unsatisfac tory manner, one or two d(ogs which were expected to occupy better posi tion at the finish, having been .unex pectedly defeated. In the first ties of the Consolation Stakes, Heather Bell beat Kentish Lad, but in the second ties in which she ran her bye with the same dog, he beat her handsoniely, so that there must be agood deal of luck attending coursing, as well as other sports. The judge, slipper and other officials, performed their respective duties to the general satisfaction of all,, the results of the stakes being as fol lows: .ConsoLATIoN STAKE...

Of course there was a time when the coat was niew.We shall go farther hack even than that, and speak of a period when it had no existence, ere ever the idea took possession of the narrow brain of stingy old James Gelsworthy to in vest five pounds of his beloved money in a warm garment ofexcenllentquality wherewith to protect his lean carcase from the chills of December. It was December in Cribble Street, Mile End London, E., as well as in Curzon Street Mayfair, W. ' Around the mansions of the wealthy and refined, the cruel, snow laden blast howled in impotent fury, be. cause it could not shake the massive doors or make the heavy, tightly-fitting windows rattle. When it discovered a stray chink, and contrived to sneak through insidiously, thick curtains bar red its way, rich carpets checked it, blazing fires warmed it, an equable tem perature absorbed it.
