COMMENTS ON EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 1 June 1882
COMMENTS ON EVENTS. --o---- "The birds whose music fills the air, Do chirp and chatter heedlessly." -ANoo. " Sport is good, but if the sport, hath lost its savour whereto goeth the sport 1" I have not yet had the pleasure of seeing this quotation, or rather perver sion, in print, but it strikes me that the author of it received the inspiration from the recent coursing meeting. These coursing meetings, like overy thing wherein the spirit of rivalry is bound to show itself keenly, engender a lot of little after disputes as to the merits and demerits of respective dogs, which, it appears, nothing but the wager of a fiver will amicably settle; then after a man has, by backing his opinion, made himself ten or twenty pounds poorer, he becomes perfectly satisfied that though his dog would have won only for something that prevented him, yet he' was "a fool to lose his coin on him.' This certainly is a bad feature in 'sporting of any sort, but there are many good ones to outweigh it; and, li...
