Tho inhabitants aie there fore to be congratulated upon tho possession of what may turn out in time to be not only tho means of providing thorn with amusement and ' pleasure, but of refinement and elevation of soul. It is porfeotly certain that these various results will bo realised according to tho various qualities of mind and heart which distinguish individual hearers. To the class who look for, and attain to, and are satisfied with, mere amusement, there is little to bo said. To those who seek mere pleasure, it can bo safely ' Haid that they will find it in good quantity.

Very^few.complaihts are heard, though in a few places £he crops on rich soil have been laid ; by heavy. ; rains', and .wind; rust has appeared,:in' n, few places, ? but it is not muoh dreaded,', as tho orops are too far advanced to sustain jiny great amount of damage ; ' neither will caterpillars be', able to cause so muoh damage as in ; some years, for tho, same reason. There-is almost; a certainty that the yield of grain will bo -.larger ; than over before, as an inoroasod area lids boon brought under orop, and the orops are'^strbnger . than usual— 6 to 8 feet in height on, good- -noils. ;..

TURF SLANG ILLUSTRATED. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 9 November 1889

TURF SLANG ILLUSTRATED. Tho turf has a languago peculiarly its own, and to the uninitiated its translation into good -English is somotimos a-: matter of considerable difficulty. 'Words that \;have one meaning in ordinary conversation have an entirely different construction put upon them as applied to racing, and this peculiarity our artist 'has' seized upon ^and. illustrated as seemed best to him. Tims a .' stiff 'un ' in raoing means a horse that has no more ohance of winning a iaco than tho poor unfortunate dragging the cart. - Not that'' 'he ?? is', broken down .or lame, but that he' is 'not trying to win. 'Two to one, bar one,' means that the bookmakers will lay two to 'one against any horso in the race except one. A 'dead bird ' signifies that a horse is con sidered' certain to win, the analogy being taken from pigeon shooting, the scorer .calling 'dead bird ' when tho bird is shot dead. ' I lay on tho fiold ' is a bookmaker's expression. - A 'nursery handicap' is a raco for 2-...
