CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 2 November 1883

CONCERT. TriE fourth entertainment tinder thc management of the Palmerston Dramatic and Musical Society came oil'on Monday evening last, and, in every respect, was a great success. The entertainment was got up for thc purpose of liquidating a portion of the debt on the Society's new piano, and advantage Avas taken of thc occasion to test the merits of thc instrument publicly. The performers had but very little time for practice, as the date of the entertainment had to be chosen before the steamer from Hong- kong could arrive, in consequence of j Messrs. Carr-Boyd and O'Malley (who had been asked to take part in thc entertainment) wishing to return South ; but, notwithstanding this, a first-rate vocal and instrumental programme was gone througli. The doors were opened at 7.30, and from that time till the curtain was raised the. ticket-takers were kept very busy.

THE FATTEST WOMAN IN THE WORLD DEAD. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 2 November 1883

THE FATTEST WOMAN IN THE WOULD DEAD. THE death of tlie fattest woman in tlie world has been announced. She was a member and special curiosity of Nathan's Cleaveland Circus America, and appears to have been smothered in her bed. Miss Conley, though thc most enormous of her sex, weighing as she did 4971b., fell far" short of that prodigy of human bulk the famous Daniel Lambert, who died in 1809, during Stamford Pair, at thc age of 40. Lambert, weighed no less than 52 stone 111b., that is 7391b., or close upon half as much again as the American lad}'. Daniel Lambert's eofiin with his body could not be brought down the stairs of the house in which he died, and thc wall at the sides of the window had to be broken away to pro Aide an exit. He was 5ft. 1 lin. in height, measured 9ft. 4in. round thc body, and 3ft. lin. round the leg. He never drank any beverage but water, and slept less than eight hours per day. The "Claimant" at his stoutest weighed only 26 stone, or less than half the wei...

Sporting News. Loyden v. Phavel. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 2 November 1883

porting ¡Jfws. Loyden v. Phavel. A FOOT-RACE between G. Loyden, one of our l>est runners, and E. Pliavel, a drover from Queensland, came off in Kavanagh-street on Monday afternoon last, and was witnessed by alargo crowd of sportsmen. Thc stakes run for were only £"y a-side, but a considerable amount changed hands amongst private individuals. The distance (100 yards) being measured off, the men toed the mai'k, and the starting flag was dropped. Loyden quickly sprang away, but Iiis opponent, losing the start altogether, made no effort to follow him, and conse- quently lost the race. The men doubled the stakes and ran again. This time they went away to a splendid start and raced close together for half the distance, when Phavcl went to the front and won easily by two yards. Both- men were sadly out of form, and our local man shaped very badly. Another race for the same sum was to have taken place the following afternoon, but Phável forfeited the stakes.

Cricket. PALMERSTON V. ALL COMERS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 2 November 1883

Cricket. PALMERSTON V. ALL COMERS. A MATcn took place on the Palmerston Oval on Wednesday afternoon last be- tween eleven of the Palmerston Club and an eleven called All Comers, but who, strictly speaking, were eleven of our recently arrived visitors, nearly all connected with the survey parties. The game resulted as everyone expected Palmerston won in one innings with a good number of runs to spare. The All Comers had had very little practice, in fact, some had not played a game for nine or ten years, and consequently could not be expected to make any stand against our reen, who are well up in practice. ' Appended are the scores : All Comers. First Innings. A. J. Wells, b Marsh. 1 J. G. Derslcy, b Christoe . 4 C. E. Herbert, b Pattie. ll H- L. Beevor, b Pattie. 0 J. S. King, b Christoe. 0 J. J.
