MISCELLANOUS. PROPOSED REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 1 September 1883

MISCELLANEOUS.               PROPOSED REVIEW.   The cynics, of course, will look upon the proposed review of pupils attending schools in Sydney and suburbs, including Camp- belltown, as a splendid theme for merri- ment. And, on a cursory glance at the proposition, there does appear any quantity of material for cartoons, spicy squibs, and whimsical paragraphs. If humour consist in the sudden descent from the sublime to the ridiculous, then we shall, on the 22nd September, wind and weather permitting, have elements so varied and original as to form a kind of social camera to the artists of the metropolitan illustrateds.

To his great surprise and horror, tho bito proved to bo poisonous, and the young man narrowly escaped losing his life. This incident natu rally reminds tho local Missouri press of another young man, who was playfully bit ten a year ago in tho thumb by another fair Missourian, and. who thereupon died in groat agony.
