THE BILLIARD CHAMPION. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 20 October 1893

THE BILLIARD C CHAMPIONI There were other reasons than that of an endeavor to point out how the champion spot-player came to have such a love for his own particular stroke which led a re. presentative of the " Westminster Gazette" to seek out the famous cune ist. There was the question as to whether billiards were hereditary, the effect of constant play on the eye-sight, the re creative results of the game, and its superiority or non-superiority over the games as played on the Continent and in America to be considered. " I was born on the day which saw the last of 1554," said Mr 1'eall. "I commenced playing when I was about 13, and after 18 months of play, my first break of any con sequence was 74 consecntivescrew-backs. We had a billiard table at home, and a very capital marker, At least, he was to me, for after I saw the 'hoard of green cloth,' and had to leave it to return to school, I per suaded him to send me a seriesof letters which were practically full of billiards.

HERE AND THERE. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 20 October 1893

HERE ND THERE, BT THE MasN ABOUT Tows., It was at an agrloultural show in.'the West --farand fair. Suddenly in the s Bidet of the procecdings there appeared a tadlthin, gaunt looking, small-eyed, nook-nose?,,fair-bearded stranger. His habiliments of decent cut, but harmonising with the generally faded look of the wearer. Things of beauty, no doubt, in the dim past; hat, alas, - for such is the fortune of clothes - not joys for ever. Whence came the strangor no man knoweth to this day. IHe speedily found the secretary, and explained that he was of the Fourth Estate. And thereupon he fell to and made notes with an industry which gave shame to his short, stubbly pencil and somewhat greasy-looking pocket-book, and the very sight of which made ordinary folks tired. Obviously he was a great worker. Re know something of a sheep, too, was, in fact, a bit of an authority. So he explained to the genial committeeman -asimple rustic, of courso-who was show. ing himround. Bul when the stranger d...

A Famous Brigand, Last week there arrived at Ladispoli, a little sea.bathing place between Civita Vecchia and Rome, a priest of spare appear ance, who seemed absorbed in his breviary. He' proceeded to the central bath ing establishment, where he took a sea bath andleft a handsome fee with the attend ant, after which he had a substantial lun cheon, where the waiter also noticed his unusually generous donation. H afterwards leftby theRome-Pisa line, but his destina tion didnot transpire, although he had ex cited some little curiosity in the small colony of bathers during his brief dtay. Two days afterwards two officers of Car bineers appeared on the scene, with a view of collecting evidence as to the appearance, dress, and manner of speech of the mys terious priest, and anything else they could learn about him. From their inquiries, it transpired that the individual in question was no other than the notorious brigand Ansuini, who, as well as his formidable rivals, Tiburzi and Fiorasan...

Count Taaffe. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 20 October 1893

Count Taaffe. The cable has announced that Count Taaffe has announced a measure of manhood suffrage for Conservative Austria has drawn new attention to that remarkable man. Here is an American sketch of him : " Count Tasffe, who since February, 1879, has combined the two appointments of   personages sho cannot well be brought under one category. He stands alone in politics as Jean Paul Ritcher did in litera ture. There are more aspects to his life and work than ..e are aides and angles to a cube. One of the most important of these aspects is his a talent - the source of that abundant pply which he keeps con stantly po u upon the troubled sea of Austrian politics . Count Taaffe has only to open his mouth and his hearers are enchanted. He is past master in all the little arts d'agree ment, so prized in courtiers and diplomatists as serving to lubricate the wheels of the social machinery of the court. He can tell a story with a gusto which Charles Lever might have envied, ...

LODGINGS ON LONDON BRIDGE [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 20 October 1893

LODGINGS ON LONDON BRIDGE. ----o- "And here, I presume, comes another of your troublesome customers !" I remarked, as out of the darkness there came shuffling at a dog trot, his naked feet plash. ing on the wet pavement, a poor wretch who could have no possible excuse for being out in such weather and at such an hour-it was half-past I by the chimes just struck-than that he washomeless and outcast. A more deplorable-looking creature it was impoessible to imagine. He were what was once a tall hat, but now was so only as regarded one side' of it, the other being sunken or bartered in; the brim of it contrived to cover and keep the wet out of his ears by means of a bit of twine attached on either side and brought to a tie beneath the chin of his haggard, whiskerless face, and his great bony knuckles stood out white against his tattered black coat, the breast lappets of which he hugged together with both his hands. " Oh, no, hba right enough, so long as you let him alone," replied .Mr P...

The latter was born at Walls- town, county Cork, Ireland, in the year 1810, and came out to these colonies in 1841. By shrewd business capacity, and untiring personal energy, she had acquired considerable property, chiefly as a grazier. About six months ago her physicians advised a visit to Melbourne; --where--at Miss Macartney's Private   Hospital, she underwent, successfully, a serious operation, at the hands of Drs. O'Sullivan and Ryan. Other troubles developed, however, and her friends fore-   saw, alas! a fatal termination at no       distant date. The Funeral Service was conducted   by the Revs. A Toomath and H. Bradd- dock, in St. Matthew's, at 1.30 p.m. on Monday, the 16th inst., the church being draped. The h...
