The Nepean Times, Published every Friday Morning. FRIDAY, MAY 5 1882. The Recent Struggle for the Championship. [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 5 May 1882

Published every Friday Morning'. ' Fin DAY, MAY 5 1882. The Recent Straggle for the Championship THE extraordinary defeat of our would-be champion in tlie great competition for pride of place in the aquatic world, gives rise to many surmises on the subject. If we are to place trust in home telegrams we cannot shut our eyes to the fact that science, peculiar knowledge, and wl 1 at may be vulgarly ; i termed, "knack,*' must have achieved vic tory in the race. In days gone bye, boating matches were regarded as tests of strength - th at strength which is measured by personal power and endurance. As in horse racing a faithful handi capper places the lightest impost upon the animal ho sees least fit to carry the burden, ho, in acquatics of old, it was held that the strongest man was the sure victor. But the science of experi ence year by 3rear, proves the con trary. Every idea as to faculty is now found to be surrounded or dic tated l)y consequences of real'experi ence. And so with the re...

St. Mary's, South Greek [Newspaper Article] — Nepean Times — 5 May 1882

St- Mary's, South, Greek From our own Correspondent. . The "weather still continues very dry, with no prospects of any downfall of rain. We have had some heavy frosts lately, which, if we do not soon get some rain, will entirely destroy the grass crop for the winter. Chiefly all the stock are innyerylow..cftn.d.ition, and owing to the very high price of fodder, owners ate unable to feed them. . ! I noticed In last week's issue of the Cum berland, Mercury, that our able correspondent had drawn attention to the want of a Wait ing Shed at Mt. Druitt platform. This is what I call a step in the right dir< ction, as it is not an uncommon '.occurrence for pas seiigets to be exposed, some considerable time to the cold rain, e<c. Mt.
