THE OTHER GIRL. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 6 March 1898

THE OTHER GIRL. When I arrived at ttie station, lady Mannington, ' Molly, and 'the French maid had collected their chattels and stood round the immense heap in atti- tudes denoting various degrees of im- patience. I apologised. ^. " It is of no consequence," said Lady Mannington, in a .tone dignifying it was of the greatest. Molly shook her head at rae and* smiled. I looked at the two ladies and the French toaid; and then I looked at the miniature^ mountain.. " The brougham is only seated for two/'I hinted. . ' * ;\ "Celeste can walk," caid Lady Man nigton. " I shall be. glad of her company/' i; responded politely. t : Lady " Mannington glanced at me doubtfully. ^Perhaps she could manage by the coachman," ¿he suggested. .''.His wife is most particular," I in- terposed quickly. " I should prefer to walk, said Molly, with an air of much good nature. - "Perhaps that will be best." Lady Mannington conceded reluctantly. *' I am sure of it/' I endorsed heartily.

LOCAL YACHTING. No. V. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 6 March 1898

LOCAL YACHTING. No. V. By GARBOABD STRAKE. [Specially Written for the SUNDAY TIMES.] The Royal Perth Yacht Club's open sailing race last Saturday week was a trifle better than those we have been having for some time past, but it was marred in a great measure by not taking the hint from the Perth Flying Squad- ron in chartering a steamer to follow the event. This, I am sure, must be a source of revenue if well carried out. There are many who would like a spin after the flotilla on Saturday afternoons. I myself have very frequently felt that hankering, and I know others per- sonally who have a similar feel- ing. The course was from South Perth Jetty, round Crawley buoy, round Foam buoy, to Brick Land-   ing buoy, back to Crawley buoy, and finishing at the starting post, : a distance of nine, miles. ***           The entries for the race were, good, and were handicapped under the V.R. A. rating rules, as foll...

Roming. "Take your time from me, boys." [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 6 March 1898

ROWING. (By "STROKE") " Take your time from me, boys." The first Inter-Club scratch four-oared races held in this colony were brought off last Saturday by the West Australian Rowing Club. It was confidently expected that some 10 or 12 -crews would take part in the races, but the pro- moters were sadly disappointed. The West Australian Club, with a members' roll of over 200 the Swan River over 100, and Fre- mantle some 60 odd, could only manage to make entries for eight, crews, or 32 members all told, thus showing the deadness that pervades the rowing fraternity. '. '..#?.* The promoters of the movement must feel a certain amount of, satisfaction with the pleasant,   afternoon's sport, and if the fields; were small the racing in several; instances was of a high class. The; large number of onlookers were now and again raised to a high pitch of excitement by the close; and critical finishes. * '* * The committee acted very wisely in making the distance a short one--a full ...

YESTERDAY'S MATCHES. INTERNATIONAL. ENGLAND v VICTORIA. Melbourne, March 12. The final match this trip of the Englishmen in Victoria was com- menced yesterday, in fine weather, be- fore a fair-sized crowd. The wicket was in good order, and so Trott, who won the toss from McLaren, decided to bat. With the exception of Trumble (107), Stuckey (59), and Trott (39), the home team failed with the bat, the score at the drawing of stumps reading 283 for nine wickets. There was only a fair attendance this morning in spite of the fine weather. Following are the scores : Victoria. First Innings. C. M'Leod, c Board, b Mason 16 J. Worrall, st Board, b Storer 13 H.

Born in 1817 he began playing in 1834?^« and has been playing ever since (66 years). From 1868-1893 (i.e., from his 51st to his 76th year) he made 24,189 runs and took 7,339 wickets.

MR. WILLIAM MOORE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 March 1898

MR. WILLIAM MOORE. The cricket celebrity this week is that popular player and capable captain of the East Fremantle Club " Billy n Moore. It will not be necessary for me to publish a list of his doings here ; every fol- lower of the game knows all about him. As a bat he is good ; as a wicket-keeper, very good; as a captain best of all. His knowledge of the game is unique, and his handling of the bowlers and fields- men of his team something de- lightful to watch. It is a pity several " captains " I could name do not watch him more-(no joke intended). They would leam a thing or two.

LATEST CRICKET ^O^l The bore at the W.A.C.A. is again flowing freely. The WA. cricketers are absolutely the most apathetic, hopeless crowd of irresponsible players I ever met. " Sausage cricketers " as Duffy would call them. Talking of Duffy reminds me : The other day two yokels from the back block of Tooraloora strolled down to the Esplanade just in time to see Duffy putting up the nets. They were much interested in the operafi« .u, and one of them at last advanced and asked Duffy: " Be they lawn tennants ?" " What !" said Duffy, " lawn what ?" *' Lawn tennants ? " ** No," said Duffy, " we don't keep it. These are to catch shrimps when the river overflows." " An' them mats ? " " Oh, they're to wipe your feet on."

From Day to Day. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 13 March 1898

$rom §a$ ia gaj. A little scolding, how good it is ! Especially when dealing with such people as those who constitute the Forrest Ministry, or at least some of them. After all the fuss and feather which distinguished the dispute which has occurred be- tween Messrs. Vosper and Witte- noom, the latter has yielded on the main point of difference, and has granted £195 to the Black Flag Hospital, sending the Usual in- timation through the member for the district. Wonld not the acting Premier have consulted that dig- nity he is so fond of prating about a great deal better by paying over the money when it was wanted, instead of compelling the member to menace him with the vengeance of Parliament ? It fills one with disgust to think that an institution so useful as a hospi- tal can be kept waiting for three months for money justly due to it, and then only have its claims satisfied because the member con- cerned abandons his usual courtesy and plainly accuses the Acting Premier of abusing hi...

CMrnes ano (gpisours. (By Scapin.) " As on tiiis 'whirligig' of time We circle with the seasons." I never can understand why little journalists are jealous of big ones.
