The Bowral Free Press. Do as adversaries do in law, Strive mightily, but cat and drink as friends. SATURDAY, MAY 17, 1884. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 17 May 1884
CIj.c §£)l\3ral Jfrcc flrcss. Do as adversaries do in law, Strive mightily, hit cat ami drink as friends. SATURDAY, MAY 17, 1881, Everyone will admit tho urgent need there existed in this colony some timo bftck when |i bill was introduced and passed by our legislature for the destruction of rabbits, which had increased in such bewildoring numbers, and spread over large tracts of country, that they were not without strong reasons declared to be a curse to the land. The fertility of rabbits is proverbial. They begin to breed when only six months old, and are capable of producing from four to ten litters in a year, of from half a dozen to a dozen, and even as high as eighteen, in a litter; so that it will be seen in favourable circumstances they multiply with prodigious rapidity, and from their destructive nature they bocomo intolerable nuisances to all classes of land owners. The preceding facts were no doubt brought prominently . under notice during the discussions that took place be...

FOOTBALL—THE KILLED AND WOUNDED. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 17 May 1884
FOOTBALL—TJIE KILLED AJSTD WOUNDED. .The result, on one clay rocontly, of our footr ball fights:—it is a grass misuse of language to call them games~was that two young men lost their lives, aud two sustained frac^ turos of the log, in 0110 instance apparently a compound fracture; 0110 of the deaths "was said to have been due .to heart disoase, the other- was. clearly caused by fracture of the spine in the neck. It is a great pity that what might be a manly and health-giving game should have been alllowed to degene rate into a kind.of organised faction-fight. The human skull unlike that of the goat or bull, is. not adapted for use as a battering ram; the death of ayoung man who perishes in the attempt to emulate the tactics of a goat or bull may perhaps not bo any great loss to tho community, but what wo com plain of is. that such conduct should be held up before tho eyes of a number of young men and lads as and example to bo follow ed. The constituted authorities of football ought t...
