SUNDAY SPORTS THREE HUNDRED YEARS AGO. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 17 August 1894
SU9NDAY" SPORTS -THREE HUN . DRED YEARS. AGO. - Althou-lisports were allowed by Junes J. on Sunday after divine service in 1617, such as bowls, quoits, ninepins, archery, shuffle-board, &c., they seem to have been indulged in at the time of the Puritans; but among the amusements disliked by sober-minded people were bull and bear baiting, and these cruel sports were often scenes of riot and vio lent disorder. In 1590 two of the Horners forcibly took a bear from the bear-keeper at Taunton on a Saturday at midnight, and "did, by the space of three houres, with dogges and other devices, and whipps and wheelbarrows, bayt the said beare, and did not tye the said beare, but in this manner bayted him lose." (" Star Chamber Proceedings," by the Rev. F. Brown, in "The Somerset Archaeological Society's Proceedings.")

ADMIRAL FARRAGUT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 24 August 1894
ADMIRAL FARRAGUT. By Americans the memory of Farra gut is cherished with a pride akin to that of Nelson in England. He was to them not only the naval hero. bet the model of everything frank, generous, and noble, and he deserves the high place which he holds in the annals of his country. Born in iSot, the son of a worthy sire, who also distinguished hint self as a naval commander, David Far ragut served in the war with England in 1812. He rose step by step in the American navy till, in i86t, on the out break of the Civil \Var, he was steadfast to his country in the midst of defection and treason. At New Orlcans he was wailed as victor : and sailors are proud ;o tell how at Mobile he caused himself 'o be lashed to the mast while, amid a Itorm of shot and shell, he carried his ihip through every obstacle. When peace came he was bailed as one of the aviours of the Union, and he died in .870, full of years and honour. His uneral at New York was agreat natidnal emonstration, the represent...

Original Poetry. THE CRY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 24 August 1894
Original Poetry. THE -CRY. A wait hath gone over the earth, Sad, hollow, and dismally drear; Like the storm in the hour of its birth, Or the wind at the fall of the yeir. It hath swept past the hovel and hut, And the rich man hath fastened his door, But it lhowiswhere its portals are shut-: 'Tis the cry of the famishing poor. The child in the arms of its nurse, Shall start as it swel!s on the air; For that sound is the sound of a curse, And that voice is the voice of despair. Lo! laughter and revely's shout, And warmth, and indulgence and sin ; There is death and starvation without- There is music and dancing within. Oh ! Dires, thy death-bed draws near; Sunk down to the level of men; The cry thou refusest to hear, Shall be audibly clear to thee then. The whispers of doctora and friends, Yea, sobs from the loving and loved, Shall be lost as that echo ascends, Which found theo so hard and unmoved. In vain, from all parts of the globe, Shall th couch with rich comsforts be spread; Thy...
