By taking heed thereto according to thy word." The preacher opened his discourse by referring to the various signs of the times that made them selves manifest to every thinking mind. This is an age of taste-taste in business, taste in pleasure. Every new year the wheels of life seem to fly faster than they did on the preced. ing one. In America, men and women are said to- hae a prematurely aged appearance. "; This will soon he a characteristic of the men and women :in this 'continent. For as said alike in business and in pleasure we are-madly in haste. Business men are not content to, work quietly,;and if a fortune is to be made, to amass it slowly.

FOOTBALL.' S FOOTSCRAY v. ExCEISIOR 23. This match :which was played on Saturday last was looked forward to with great interest amongst the junior fraternity, inasmuch as this was the first time for years that two clubs in Footscray have sent teams into the: field to oppose each other. i On this occasion the younger club was allowed three men extra, but their powerswere not sufficient to enable them to hold- their own against their formidable antagonists, Footscray. .The first half of the game was simply a lombnclardment of the X's goal, but the least said about the goal kicking the better; for out of fully fifteen easy shots, only s goal was credited to Footscray.

Poetry. THE NEW CHURCH ORGAN. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 16 June 1883

P o et ry. TIHI NEW CHURCH ORGAN. They've got-a brand-new organ, Sue, For all their fuss and search; They've done just as they said they'd do, And fetched it into church. They're bound the critter shall be seen, And on the preacher's right - They've hoisted up their new machine, In everybody's sight. They've got a chorister and choir, Ag'in' my voice and vote; For it was never nmy desire, To praise the Lord by note ! I've been a sister good-an' true For fire-an'-thirty year; I've done what seemed my part to do, An' prayed my duty clear; : ' I've sung the hymns both slow and quick, Just as the preacher read, And twice, when Deacon Tubbs was sick, I took the fork an' led ! And now their hold, new-fangled ways Is comin' all about; And I, right in my latter clays, Am fairly crowded out ! To.day the preacher, good old dear, With tears all in his eyes, Rea.d, "I can read my title clear To mansions in the skies." I al'a-s liked that blessed hymn Is pose I al'ays will; It somehow gratifies ...
