*YOURIOSITIES OF' GAMBLING. AFTlr tile Norman Oonquost gambling be came very general in England, although laws were made against it. Tile clubs about the middle of the eighteenth century became the great resorts for gambling, Arthur's, Al mlack's, Bootle's, and Whitu's being the principal. At Brook's Olub Fox lost £200,000 at play. Gibbon confesses to hav ing played for twenty-two hours in succes. sion, and lost £500 per hour. Gibbon could bear his losses philosophically, and after a dreadful night'o play would be found on a sofa quietly reading a classic author. George IV,, then Prince of VWales, lost an immuenso sum at these clubs, obtaining money on his note of hand from the Jews, by whomn they were frequented. Drum moend, a banker, lost £20,000 at one sitting to Beau Brummell. At one of the clubs there was once a east of the dice involving the possession of the sum of £180,000.

CURIOSITIES OF TAXATION. II. [Newspaper Article] — Reporter and Illawarra Journal — 21 September 1887

OIURIOSITIES OP TAXATION., (From Ai o the Year Rou.nd.) II. ,Fon some time after the Norman Conquest there was no change in the methods of taxa. tion, and the King maintained Ilis state upoui the produce of the royal demesne, which includednot only the lands of the de. posed Saxon Kings, but also the confiscated lands of the nobles who revolted against the Normans, According to the Doomsday Book, it comprised in 1086 no fewer than one thousand four hundred and twenty.two manors, besides farms in Middlesex and Shropshire. Besides their rents, the tenants of the royal demesne were under obligatio, to assist in the extraordinary expenses of war' and for such purposes were liable to taxt. tion to the extent of one.tenth of their gear. Upon others taxation took curious forms. They had to produce horses and carringes for the conveyance of the King and his suite.

The subljeot may seem scarcely worth mentioning, but still it is a little nattor of local gossip, which some will feel intorested in hearing of. It was a day or two before thile proclaimed iholiday, when Mr. Moore, being in some doubt as to the oxtoent of Messra.

CRICKET AS A PROFESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Reporter and Illawarra Journal — 21 September 1887

ORICOKET AS A PROFESSION., I nmay seem strange that the word "criclket,' which to a great many people suggests noth ing more than tlhe name of a favourite pas. time, means to some others what the word " benemlce" means to a parson, or the Bar to a man of law, Thoso people who'never saw a orioket mach other than that played on the village green of Bullocksnmithy, will perhaps he surprised to know that to a large and over-increasing class of men the game of cricket is a profession-a profession in which there are largo prizes to bo gained, and, if temperance, attention, and hard work be adhered to,.a competence for lifo Is to be secured, As overybody who takes any interest in tle national game knows, cricketers are divided into olasses-amateu'rs and profes. sionals.

THE NAME OF OUR FUTURE KING. [Newspaper Article] — Reporter and Illawarra Journal — 21 September 1887

THE NAME OF OUR FUTURE EING. (IT is known that in England there is a wish extensively felt that the Prince of Wales on his accession should assume the title of Ed ward VII. "A Scotch Reader" writes as follows to a London publication) : Sir,-In answer to a correspondent on 25th June, you said that when the Prince of Wales becomes King (which I hope will not be for many years) lie will be known, not as Albert the First, which would be in, troducing a now nanmo to the line of English sovereigns, but as Edward the Seventh, a famous English royal name. Assuming that this change of name, of which you appear to approve, does take place, the question will then arise, Why should the Prince of Wales adopt a name, which, as that of their king, will be very distasteful to the Scotch and Welsh, as reminding the latter of their conqueror and the former of two of their attempted conquerors, and of .the murderer of Sir Win. WVallace, when hlie (the Prince of Wales) lhas already a name at which no p...
