PAID FOR HOLDING HER. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 12 May 1883

PAIi) L'OR HIOLDIN)G HER. The affee:ion between stage lovers is often so well acted that no one suspects the' real feelings which exist between them. A writer says he knew, two actors of the opposite sex who iositively dislikcd each other, but were forced by their parts into the most devotional tenderness of conduct. One night as he was p'aying at love she was to rush into his arms; being a true artist, she did her work with energy, and between speeches he muttered ' You need not swallow me." She replied, " You are toso bitter a dose." Whi'.e Ihuldin:' her in fondo embrace he growled in aO t ette cohisper " Don't lean t? lihrd aea'n,.t a man." With her head in tender repose upon his breast she retorted " You are paid for iolding me, and I intend you shall earn your a!lary." They never made up and never married. She married another actor, and clings :o the dislike for the man wi\h1whom she plays.

"THE WONDERFUL LOVE." TO THE EDITOR OF THE INDEPENDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 12 May 1883

"'.:HE WONDERFUL LOVE." i TO TIHE EDITOR OF THE INDEPENDENT. T. Sla,--As a starting, point for my defence of the Bible against the charge of supporting the current blasphemous theories, presented to the public in the catechisms, and such "wonderful love" as I exposed in your last issue, I take for a text that which has been, and still is~:their only foundation, Gen. 2-17, "'In the day that thou eatest thereof,thou shalt sutrelydie." The great, learned, and wise commentators of the past must have had as strong an heredilary faith in the inspiration of every word found in the Bible, as the old lady who affirmed that if it said that Jrnah swallowed a whaleshe would believe it ;. at least ii will be ?ound that their conclusions are not awhit less absurd, and that they are terribly ruinous to the cause of Christ ianmty. It would have been very awkward to say that Adam died bodily on the day he dis obeyed, seeing that hundreds of years after wards he begat sons and daughters. Therefore, a...

Thomas Bent, when Commissioner of Railways, made the rule prohibiting the public from smoking on railway stations, the officials have been very watchful in detecting any traveller transgressinmg this rule, and com manding him to put his pp:e out. This may be a very just, or a very unjust proceeding, but we do not see why the railway officials should be all!owed what is to some an inexpressible luxury, while it is denied to the general public. Ott the local station we often see officials puffing asasy at the "weed ;" but, woe-betide any traveller swho happer s to step on to the station with his pipe alightit This is not as it should be-the rule eiiher'bught not to be.at all, or?il needed, ought to apply alike to everyone. . . -

Yarraville United Cricket Club Concert and Ball. There was a capital attendance last evening, at the Royal Hall, on the above occasion. The club have been desirous of fencing in, and otherwise improving their ground, and sub- mitted such an attractive programme as to induce a large audience, including a powerful muster from Yarraville. In the list of per- formers were several professionals as well as many local amateurs, ever welcome to our audiences. Owing to the lateness of the hour our remarks have to be curtailed. The local men scored victories—Messrs J.   B. Owens and F. Johnstone in songs, and Mr R. Johnstone in his silver belt jig, each being encored. Miss Nelson, a young lady comique, and Miss Laughton were highly appreciated. Mr McDonald's sword dance was a special feature. During the interval Mr. W. M.
