RANDOM SHOTS. [Newspaper Article] — Evelyn Observer and Bourke East Record — 31 July 1903
RANDOM SHOTS. By is Bfllons Mlmarksnmam. The Jonah of the Fedoral Govern ment was not thrown overboard to save the ship. Nor was it a case of political suicide whilst labouring under teom porary insanity. Nothing of the sort. It's a clear case of felo d ose, and Mr. Kingston was just as much in his right mind as any South Australian politician ever aoes when thwarted in any political high-handed bit of jingoeism. They are all alike, mostly -says our Imp-these South Austra lian heaven-born legislators. Egotism pure and simple is their dominating trait. bur Imp tsells us that the last time he was in Adelaide he got a perfect sickener, for every second man he met was big with the same subject, via., the unparalleled beauty and grandeur of their own native dirty, dusty, sleepy Adelaide. We sadly want a Dickens now-a.days to take down the Adelaideians-somothing after the style that great master did the inflated Yankeos in his " Martin Chuzzlewit."

. A TRIP TO ELTIIAM. BY BACKYARD KIP'LING. One day I thought I would take a run, And take with me my rod and gun ; I went to the Prince's railway station, I did not bother about my ration, As whore I was going the rations were good, At Eltham, a few miles past Collingwood. I got my ticket and took my seat In one of Bent's carriages, what a treat To leave the din of Melbourne city, To see the hills and dales so pretty o)f Eltham, a place that will be of renown When more known of by people who live in the town.

I was very pleased with my heavy load, But mlore pleased was I when I saw the r...
