SOME FEAST. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 February 1930

SOME FEAST. Ages ago on one of the South Sea islands a missionary had wandered too far from the mission station and was captured by a raiding tribe of eannibals. They took hSm well in land. to where a feast was beinsr prepared, and placed him on a Beat close to where a huge porpoise was cooking. A double ring of natives were dancing in a circle round him. Presently an old cannibal, who was evidently somewhat of an epicure, came and felt the missionary in vari^' ous places. Then to the surprise of the latter remarked in English: 'Prime! vastly superior to the home grown article!' The missionary interjected, 'But the fish will be ample for all. You'll not want tne!' The cannibal smacked his lips and replied, 'Your are for dessert after the fish.'

THE MIGHTY FISHERMAN. HIS UNEQUALLED RECORD. ORIGINALLY IMPORTED TO SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 February 1930

jlTHE MIGHTY FISHERMAN.I HIS UNEQUALLED RECORD. ! ORIGINALLY IMPORTED TO SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Both in the amount, of money in-| volved, and the number of races to I his credit, Gloaming was the greatest! turf winner in Australasia. Another horse, with a far-reaching influence on Australian thoroughbreds, Fisherman,' appears, to have been v»e greatest' winner (numerically) in the history] of the British t'orf. This hardy horse i started in 119 races in five seasons! for 69 wins. He was bred in England . by Mr. Fowler. . He won the Ascot! Gold Cup twice. | Fisherman was Imported to South! Australia in 1860, and proved a great] sire of stayers. He came from the male line of Herod, whose illustrious rival, Eclipse, ran 18' races without suffering defeat. Three descendants of Eclipse — The Bard, Hambletonian, and Ormonde — won 16 successive races. Ormonde was never beaten. It is interesting to compare Fisher man's record with Gloaming's.

TAKING TO THE TOTE. ENGLISH RACEGOERS ENTHUSIASTIC. INCREASED ATTENDANCES. An interesting survey of the posi tion in England was given recently at the annual dinner of the York Gimcrack Club by Sir Clement Hind ley, chairman of the Racecourse Bet-i ting Control Board, a body created to| benefit racing and the horse, by: diverting some portion of the stream) of money used in betting to the bene-' fit of the sport. In his introductory remarks Sir Clement referred to the difficulties which beset the board in the preli minary work and in the early stages of the operation of the machine. 'It has been largely an experimen- ? tal period, in which both our staff and the racing public have gained new experience,' he went on. | 'But since last July we have pro-, vided means of totalisator betting on! 23 raceeoures, and in the five months since we commenced to ope- - [ rate some 485,000 racegoers have [been given the opportunity of. the' ! new form of betting. ? ? i Vinxra -rn/vie+rivn/?

VETERAN FIGHT FAN'S REMINISCENCES. ? ? SAYS JACK DEMP3EY WAS GREATEST HEAVYWEIGHT. LES DARCY'S QUALITY. Mr. Joseph Gran, of Hamilton,! New Zealand, though seventy years of age, has vivid impressions of great fighters, obtained through seeing them in action, and meeting them. His eulogy of Jack Dempsey is very fine. i Mr. Gran writes: — ! I have reached the age of three score and ten, and, during the past 40' years spent as a rolling stone, have seen five heavyweight cham-| pionsbip battles decided, all in America, and numerous near chain-] pidns give some of the greatest bat-! ties ever one can witness. I can now visualise, while writing this epistle, the scene of old Bob Fitzsim mons bout with Jim Jeffries. Tough fellows they were ; game as could be ; but there was something at their battles which robs a bout of the sen sational order. ' Jeff was an ugly fighter, slow, strong, and always crouching. Poor old Fitz knocked himself up trying to knock him out by landing blows on: Jeff's...

A GREAT FEATHERWEIGHT. JOE RUSSELL'S METEORIC RISE. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 February 1930

AGREAT FEATHERWEIGHT., JOE RUSSELL'S METEORIC RISE. For the first time since George Dawson, Queensland had a probable marvel to let loose among Australia's best. It was a time, too, when the country was prolific in feather and tis-htw^ip-ht. linvs e-ood enoua-h to send against the best on earth. Queensland had waited long for a champion boxer. So when young Joe Russell, .shyly knocked at the door of Jim Donald's honie in Brisbane, and said he would like to become a boxer, the usual formula was at once gone through by the astute and hard-hitting Donald. He took the aspirant into a room fitted for the purpose and handed hiin a pair of gloves. In the -first round, Jim snapped the lad's wind with a right, and after a while he came to, and said he would be back again next morning. Contrary to expectations, or ratner th« rule when a novice takes a hard one in the first try, the young curly-headed, blue-eyed lad with a sliaju. tinge of Irish in his voice, turned up again next day and said ...

Are you i^uraatic? When damp weather sets in don't expect to be rheumatic I Guard yourself against such risk by strengthening the kidneys. Normally, rich blood circulates throughout the system, repairing and nourishing the tissues, and it is the duty of the kidneys to keep this blood pure. -. 4 Overwork, worry or changes in the weather, add to the burden. The kidneys may not be equal to the strain. They fail to filter out from the blood, uric acid and other harmful impurities, which | cause backache, lumbago, sciatica [and rheumatism. Don't wait until these complaints develop. Immediately you begin to experience rheumatic twinges, urinary trouble, backache, or other sign of kidney disorder, use Doan s Backache Kidney Pills, and you will soon be well again. Better still, you can prevent kidney trouble by taking an occasional course of | Doan's as a precaution. iSold by all Chemists and Stores^ 1 Foster -McClellan Co. !

HUNTING THE SPOOKS. One House Yields a Child, a Nun, a Beckoning Hand, and a Man in Armour. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 21 February 1930

HUNTING THE SPOOKS. One House Yields a Child, a%in, a Beckoning Hand, and , a Man in Armour. Ghost-hunting is. the latest; popu- lar sport. Large, crowds of people recently tqok part in ..the search for a 'spectre' which had ap peared in Kent, and which turned out to be only ;human after all, and similar crowds are alwavs attracted by a 'haunted house.' Even the 'Universities are falling i under the spell, and . a psychical j research association one of whose activities is to be hunting the local apparitions, 'has just been, formed at Oxford. One of the mysteries which this new body may investigate is that of the Oriel College footsteps. In the middle of the night these footsteps are frequently heard going upstairs into a room, in the centre of which they cease. . j University tradition gives no en couragement to ghost-hunting, for legend has it that a previous Oxford organisation for the study of -the occult met .with a bad end.

PHAR LAP AND FUTURITY ' STAKES. DERBY WINNER AS SPRINTER/' (From Our Melbourne Representa tive.) ? In a glance at the . early nomina tions for the V.A.T.C. Futurity Stakes one of the first names seen is. that of the dual Derby winner, Phar Lap. ^ The outstanding horse of his age m the spring and a solid stayer, it is a little difficult to imagine the New Zealand-bred gelding 'in the role of a sprinter and leading home some of the best short distance horses in the Commonwealth over seven furlongs. Four years ,ago Manfred, heavily: penalised, found Top. Gallant and Fujisan-toc good for hiin, arid Phar Lap's record to date is no more im pressive than the brilliant son of Valais, Earlv in the season Phar Lap could not get within striking dis tance of horses of his own age overj sprint distances. At that time he hadf not revealed the form which mado him the champion thre&-year-old. Phar Lap will have little less weight, than Manfred, who carried 9.6. Seven three-year-olds have be...
