u.mi £•:•$ iK" Although an Australian by virtue of residence, Boach was born in Surrey, England, in 1851, and removed with his parents to New South Wales in 1854. He was brought up to his father's trade, and, while toiling like a young Vulcan in the smithy, unconsciously developed that magnificent physique which has since brought him world wide distinction. When about twenty-three years of age, Beach commenced rowing on the Illa warra lakes against local competitors,and from the outset kept winning until gradu­ ally handicapped out of all races.

The experiment is not a novel one in point of object sought, but Mr. Keyser's plan is a somewhat novel one. His operations are carried on at 128 "West Fourth street, and the result has been such as to make most people won­ der "why a sensible man should try such an experiment at all. He simply proposed to give two meals a day to all who chose to apply—all the bread and soup and coffee one could want, and not a cent to pay. We need not wonder that though but seven­ teen applied the first day, the number gradu­ ally increased till one day 2,800 came, and Mr. Keyser put up his shutters, after a piteous a...
