VETERAN AUSTRALIAN RIDERS [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 31 January 1930

I VETERAN AUSTRALIAN RIDERS None will deny that R. Lewis is Australia's wonder horseman. More than 50 years of age, he is still able to ride winners, and only a fortnight ago was seen to advantage on Sir Roy in the Aspenuale Handicap. Lewis possesses a remarkable con stitution, and the fact that he has not been handicapped by increasing weight, as in the case of J. E. Pike, has had a lot to do with his long ser- - vice in the saddle. Something of a record on the score of a long service career as a rider must be that associated with aii Englishman named John Faulkiner, who is now over 100 years of age. It was less than 30 years since he gave up riding. At 99 he was lucked by a mule, had his thigh broken, but recovered sufficiently well to potter about. Another English jockey was John Osborne, who rode for 50 years, and in that time took part in 38 Derbies, in one of which he was successful. He was 60 when he rode his last winner. In Australian history, the New Zealander, Robert Derre...

AUSTRALIAN WHO WON THE LIVERPOOL GRAND NATIONAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 31 January 1930

AUSTRALIAN WHO WON THE LIVERPOOL GRAND NATIONAL. The death in England . of Lady Sarah Wilson at the age of 64 years recalls the success of an Australian owner in the Grand National Steeple chase at Liverpool and the brilliant riding feats, of the soldier, Captain Roddy. Owen, who forsook his rac ing activities immediately after his Grand National Steeplechase success and devoted himself to his military career. His early death in Egypt from cholera in 1896 was regretted in many circles. Lady Sarah 'Wilson was the widow of 'Mr.- Gordon -C. Wilson;' whom she married 'in 1891. Mr. Wilson was the eldest son of Sir Samuel Wilson, one-time, own.-tr of , the Ercildoune estate, near Bal larat, Victoria. Known to all his in timate . friends as 'Erasmus,' Gor don. Wilson won the Liverpool Grand National in March, 1892, with. Father O'Flynn, a fine stayer and great jumper. Ridden by Roddy Owen, and in receipt of 26 lb. from the presumed certainty Cloister, Fathei O'Flynn defeated Cloister by 20...

BETTING INTERPRETATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 31 January 1930

BETTING INTERPRETATION,^ J ^ ?* ? f ' Where 'all up' and contingent bets are concerned there will alwaVS ;be disputes. But leading Sydney bookmakers who do business on tfift - basis have fairly well-defined rulM which cover most cases. A Tecent dispute brought to notice concerns a Queensland punter who wired a Sydney fielder operating in Melbourne to secure £10 on Glen anton in the Railway Highweight, all up Nightmarch in the Cup. If, -ks stated, the punter specified the race^, there is no question as to interpre tation, and his £10 would go On Nightmarch, Glenanton having bef(^ scratched for the High weight. |i* Why the dispute arose was be cause Glenanton ran placed in the Yan Yean Stakes later' in the day. But the contingent bet on Night march rested on the Highweight only, and as the instructions wes$» 'all up.' and not 'winnings up/' the fact that Glenanton was scratched for the Highweight leaves th6 orig inal £10 to be invested on the Cup.

THAT JADE FORTUNE. (Continued from Last Week.) [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 31 January 1930

THAT JADE FORTUNE. By R. J. B. SELLAR. ? I (Continued from Last Week.) j At the mention of police Cranston flinched visibly. He licked his lips and paled. Then; suddenly, his front changed. He may have been deceived by Noel's quiet demeanour. 'Look here,*' he blurted, 'I don't know who the devil you are. You may be a friend of Miss Dix's, or you may not. Anyhow, this i£ no affair of yours, and you'd better clear out before I send for the police or throw you out myself. Miss Dix gave me that ring! of her own free will and I'm not go-! ing to have any old Tom, Dick, orj Harry bursting into my rooms ot say j they've got to have the ring. You'd better get out.' This was better. Noel understood how to deal with this type of person. He buttoned his overcoat and said with deceptive quiet, at the same time nodding towards the other's :nany hued tie: -'Wouldn't old Marston of Bilbury be pleased if he could be here just now to hear thu cnoice specimen of the Old Boy.

THREE-YEAR-OLD CUP WINNERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 31 January 1930

THREE-YEAR-OLD CUP WIN NERS. . In 69 years 20 three-year-olds have won the Melbourne Cup, and several others have been placed in the same race, among them Phar Lap, Strephon, Manfred, The Cypher, Erasmus, Westcourti ADtonious, Abundance, Mountain King, and. Spearfelt, who won {wo years later. In the Auckland Cup, according to a New Zealand writer ,only five three year-olds have won in- ;54 years. The J first was Welcome Jack. The nextj was Crackshot, who was one of the first season foals by Nordenfeldt. He won with 8.3, and also scored in the Canterbury Cup, 24 miles, in which he defeated the Derby winner, Me dallion. St. Hippo must have been good, as he won with 8.9, or 141b. over w.f .a. Other winners at that age were Pegasus (who was not of much account) and Nestor.

THE BOOK LOVER [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 31 January 1930

j THE BOOK LOVER | It is announced in the 'National Review' for November that Mr. L. J, Maxse, the editor, is ill in a nurs ing home, and that Lady Milper will carry on the work of editing until further notice. The 20.00th anniversary of the birth of Virgil will be celebrated next year. It has been resolved to plant a 12-acre park on the banks of the Mincio at Mantua (where Virgil was born on October 15, 70 B.C.) with the trees, shrubs, and flowers men tioned in the Georges and the Aeneid. Mr. Edgar Wallace's latest novel, 'The Golden Hades,' is concerned with an actor who is severely cross examined in connection with a mur der. While the book was passing through the press, . the newspapers were full of a court case of this kind, the death having occurred at Reading, and the accused being an actor. : It is 18 months since the.

BOTH SIDES OF THE FENCE [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 31 January 1930

I BOTH SIDES OF THE FENCE I j (By 'THE MAN ON TOP') I The critic of modern manners fre quently finds material in the luxu ries and extravagances of the rich. A certain Londoner, who used to send an' aeroplane to the Mediterranean 'to bring him strawberries out of i season, provided many sermons and shakes of the head. , But our richest and most wasteful spenders were sur- 1 'passed by the Emperors of Rome in j :he period 01 its decadence. 1 ney , ivasted gold and they wasted life, j ind they wasted beauty. There were :ritics in those days, too, but none jf them lived long enough to collect! m old-age pension, if such a thing svas in existence away back in the iges. The Roman Emperors were . richer than the Henry Fords and tlockfellers of today. They ruled a nation bloated with spoils of th-* mcient world, gorged with art trea sures and bullion, and jewels and -ilks and slaves. 'We could do with , i few good spenders here in Aus- j ;ralia just now, but those who hold :.he boodle won'...

WHY FRENCH SOLDIERS WORE RED TROUSERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 31 January 1930

WHY FRENCH SOLDIERS WORE) RED TROUSERS. I ? - \ i Among the picturesque details of life which have disappeared since 1914 must be included the red trous ers of the French soldier. They were last worn, it seems, about the time of the first battle of the Marne. Most of us supposed that the color was chosen partly .for its martial brilliance at close quarters, and part s.y uccau&c icu la geueiaiiy saiu to: be among the colors that merge most easily into a background of mixed colors. Now, however, a French newspaper is saying that the color of the French military trousers was chosen chiefly for the sake of help ing' to stimulate industry. About i century ago the madder plant, largely grown in the Hhone district, ind cultivated for the sake of the red dye produced from it, showed signs of disappearing, so the French Government decided to save it by changing the hue of the trousers from white to red.

WASTE IS WEALTH What the Housewife Puts in the Dustbin May Help to Lower Her Rates. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 31 January 1930

WASTE IS WEALTH What die Housewife Puts in the! Dustbin May Help to Lower Her Rates. | ? ? i; ' These ojLd rags ain't any use; throw them in the dustbin J' This remark is made daily in countless homes. The result is that, unless the local authority j responsible for collecting rub- j bish has a better idea of values, ' a great deal of potential wealth | is wasted. Perhaps,, too, the old rags ; are thrown out by, one family, while ; in the family next door someone is unemployed. No one ever dreams that the old rubbish — and other rub bish like it— can provide jobs for people who have none. Yet that is the case — handling a ton of rags means a full week's work for one man and two women. A ton of old tin cans will give another week's work to somebody else. Among the schemes which have recently been put before the English l Home Development Committee as a,1 means of providing employment is one for salvaging the household re fuse of Greater London and dealing with it commercially.

BANTAM CHICKS' FEED. ? ? ? ! Game bantam chickens should not be fed on too soft food, the less the better. ? Some breeders use finely chopped hard boiled eggs mixed with bread crumbs for the first week, then feed with boiled rice and grain (finely ground wheat and mixed bird seed) until the chicks are feathered. Then discontinue the rice and feed more grain, with an added percen tage of wheat. Finely chopped lean meat can be given sparingly, but avoid any fattening foods, such as potatoes, maize, or a liberal diet of house scraps.
