No Title [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 12 July 1879

We extract the following from the Rich mond Guardian:--" At the Council meeting next Thursday, Councillor Koch will move, in pursuance to notice, for the production of the plans, and all information respecting the proposed swimming baths, the object being to ascer tain whether it is not practicable to erect a cheap bath at thebendin the Yarra, known to all water-loving boys as "'the Sandy." The bottom at this corner is shallow and sandy, while the sweep, of the river is so wide that a bathing enclosure would not impede its course. Many parents object to their children bathing at this spot, simply because it is possible to stray from it into deep water, but it is largely used during the summer months. A cheap wooden en closure, Councillor Koch anticipates, would remove all fear of danger, and answer every: purpose; and though liable to be silted up; in time of flood, could be easily cleansed.". We would invite the attention of the Councils of Fitzroy and Collingwood to the necessity....

LOVE'S FULL SACRIFICE. (Continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 12 July 1879

LOVE'S FULL . SACRIFICE. (Comitinited from our last.) Gopalee-so the youngster was named-salaamed deeply, and then sud denly, as if carried away by gratitude for his escape, prostrated himself at the sahib's feet, touching the ground with his forehead in token of servitude and abject humility. There was something in this action which reminded Donning ton of pretty Motee's manner of abusing herself before him, and so he fell think ing of the poor girl, wondering whether she had yet returned to th'e Lumbar. dar's house, and whether by this time she had agreed to accept the worthy Mohammed as her future husband. Thus pondering, he marched along the road which was scarped on the hill sides; nor was it until some miles had been covered that he recovered from his fit of abstraction. Then the loud shrill call of a black partridge far down a deep ravine brought him to his senses, and, as it was taken up and an swered by other similar birds, his sporting instincts made him regret that his gu...

A FEW WORDS ABOUT CRICKET AND FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 12 July 1879

A. FEW WORDS.- ABOUT/. CRICKET AND PObTBAZL. Br PZDAGOGICUS. FOR out-door exercise and recreatio6, in most English-speaking communities, the manly and invigorating games of football and cricket, divide the year about equally; the former occupying the winter months while the latter is better adapted for the summer since it does not require sueh prolonged exertion. As athletic sports they are excellent of their kind ; in fact it might almost be said that they cannot be surpassed,. since they very materially assist in developing and strengthening both wind and muscle. Of these two thoroughly Anglo Saxon games, though, for reasons that I shall presently adduce, the preference should in the opinion of many persons competent to speak of their respective merits, be given to cricket. And first of football. For the healthy the robust and the strong, it is, when played as it should .be, without doubt an admirable exercise. For the young and the weak, it is as played now-as-days, not simply an...
