A DISCREDITABLE BUSINESS [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 3 February 1887
A DISCREDITABLE BUSINESS If tlie athletes who win so much of the public money wish to keep one tittle of tho public respect they must learn to conduct themselves like de cent human beings.

BETWEEN DRINKS. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 3 February 1887
BETWEEN DRINKS. The lady contributor of a con temporary ' writes : — ' Gloves are worn, much longer in Hobart than here.' This ^ is an item which comes to the married, or about to be so, of the male sex with a cool and refreshing tone. The man wno lias to unte-up every week for gloves longs to live in Hobart even as tlie hart longs for cooling streams when heated in tho chase. But if length means length of arm and not means length of time. I would respectfully suggest that I have seen gloves so long that further continuation would be impossible without the fair wearer sewed buttons on the extremity and wore the combination as a jersey. T.hese gloves bid fair to be popular where lpve-lorn swains receive the mitten of their one to wear next their beating hearts. The lengthy glove will have this advan tage of its more brief companion, that it ? may be worn round tho waist filled with cork, and thus become a life-buoy ; it could be worn inside the vest as a tobacco pouch and pipe-ease o...

A LONG WAIT [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 3 February 1887
A LONG WAIT Royal marriages aro usually State affairs. They rarely spring from affection and mutual choice, and as rarely illustrate the ideal of married life. But royal lovers would bo entitled to' pity, if it took them as long to tie the nuptial knot as was the case in the famous marriage be tween the son of Ferdinand II. of Ger many, afterwards Emneror Ferdinand III.. and Blary, tho Spanish Infanta. The union had been arranged seven -years before .the marriage contract was settled, and the brido was set out for Vienna on January 7, 1(520, that tho mar riage might tako place in March. But one delay occurred after another, and the Infanta aud her attendants did not begin their journey until Deconiber 2(5, or more than eleven mouths from the date first set. . - - .When they reached Barcelona, February i 8, 1G30, no ships were in readiness, and they could not proceed until June 12.
