ITEMS OF INTEREST. [ORIGINAL AND SELECTED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 6 January 1894
ITEMS OP INTEREST. [ORIGINAL AND SELECTED.] In dealing with the flutter which the absence of Sir Robert Duff from the Highland gathering caused in the breasts of Sydney Scotsmen, the following is told by a Victorian writer : — ' The Highland incident in Sydney reminds me of an attempt made many years ago to form an association of the kind in an up-country town. It was the only national institution in the district, and the broadest interpretation was given to the word Scot, anyone with a Celtic name passing muster easily. One of the early presidents was a MoHaghan — monagnan uuqu, or js-ea luonagnan iromtne colour of his oeard. There was also a member rejoicing in the truly British name of Cederic Colin M'Cann, but it was Monaghan Rhu who broke up the society.

Tho gentlemen have joined us in the drawing room, and someone is singing, when the sound of an arrival catches my quick ear, and at a glance from Lady Lisle I pass from the room unobserved by any of the others, and creeping softly down the stairs, meet Humphrey on the landing. The gas is burn ing directly overhead, and I see that he looks har rassed and worn, besides which he is alone. 'You have not found her?' I lay my hands upon his arm, my heart aching heavily for him the while. ' No, and as a last resource, I have to go to Scot land Yard. I hated to do the thing, but n...

While taking part in the Adelaide Steeplechase Kover jumped fairly on to the last fence of the trohle, and injured himself so severely internally that he had to be destroyed the following morning Two years ago Kover won the three steeplechases in Adelaide, after which MOO was offered and re fused for him. It was lucky for the would-be pur chaser that no bargain was struck, as Eover never won a race since, although he was given every chance both in South Adelaide and at Melbourne suburban meetings.
