SPORTING NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 May 1891

The Viotoria Amateur Turf Club held another meeting at Caulfield on 28th March, when an in teresting afternoon's racing was enjoyed by a large gathering of spectators. The secretary has for some time past suspected that a system of fraud was being carried on by some of the men employed to collect tickets, nnd on Satur day two of them working in collusion were caught in the act and handed over to the police. Ascot Vale won the Trial Stakes, followed home by Bodkin and Loiterer ; and in the Hurdle Race, whioh only brought out three starters, the places were filled by Mebbeleck, Yatapa and Spilsby, who occupied corresponding relative positions in the betting market. The prinoipal race on the card, the Easter Handicap, was clevorly won by Laverock, ridden by Blaster Whitty, the win ner's nearest attendants being G'Naroo and Bothwell.

FRIGHTFUL CATASTROPHE AT QUEENSCLIFF.   A terrible accident occurred at the Queenscliff fort on Saturday, 28th March, which resulted in the death of two men and the injury of six   others.' Tho names of the men killed are Cor poral Charles Brearley and Gunner, David Donaldson, both of the Geolong battery. At the time of tho naoident the mon were working the 6 inoh B.L.C.P. gun. Thoy had boen ongagod at drill from 9.30 till' near 12 o'olook, ' but only one round had been fired from this ? gun. . In loading for the second shot some difficulty was experienced in plaoing the charge. It would not go home, and the breeoh oould not be closed. Another charge was then procured, containing 30 lb. of pebblo powder. 'The same difficulty appears to have arisen with this one, as the men stationed No. 3 (Brearley) and No. 2 (Donald son), who had charge of the breeoh block, in swinging it home were blown away by the explosion. Their death was instantaneous. Brearley was da...

A BUSH HAWKER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 June 1891

AMBUSH HAWKER. ! The hawker is quite an institution in the baok country, and in tho sparsely settled districts he is a great convenience to the seleotor. As may be supposed the day of his call is as eagerly looked forward to as was the visit of the pedlar who was often the ballad monger and bearer of the news in the border hamlets of Scotland, a century ago. The Australian hawker trades in .quite a varioty of lines, though his main stock consists of tinware, drapery, ribbons and trin kets. Sometimes payment is made. in kind, and at; the end of the round the porambulating trader, has his waggon full of bacon, eggs and suoh like farm produce, whioh he turns into, cash oh his return to town. Our picture shows a group. rqund a van, the ownor of -which is dilating upiu the exoollenoe of some trinkets ho is displaying, and tho good lady is using] all her powers of persuasion to. induce hor reluctant spouse to sooure them for her, and there is - little doubt but that tho laudation of tho v...

Numerous other attractions were provided, tho ohiof being tho Victoria Raoing Club's mooting at Flomington. As usual, this popular flxtnreVwas largely attended, a good day's raoing. being .witnessed by those present.

THEATRES. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 June 1891

Pill!!! The comic opera of The Old Guard, at thai Princess's Theatre, has had a phenomenal run of sucoess, in great part owing to the humor of the comedian . Elton, whose fun draws just as muoh as tho music or the mite en seine. Madame Sara Bernhardt and her Frenoh Company opened at this theatre on Saturday, the 30th ult. The charges for admission have been doubled, and there seems no reason to suppose that the publio will grumble at this, considering the ability, and prestige of the lady as an artist. Sho com* menco tho soasou with Camille, and will during tho term of her engagement appear in ;.;«. some of the more remarkable plays in her ex tensive repertoire including Cleopatra, Theodora, La Toaoa; and others.

KAVA DRINKING. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 June 1891

KAVA DRINKING. There is a time honored yarn concerning a naval officer who, on being asked to report to the Adrnirality respecting the manners and customs of- the aboriginals in some islands he had visited, wrote: — 'These people have no manners, nnd their oustoms are disgusting. ' In Samoa i the people are nothing . if not good mannered.' In a chief's house the greatest etiquette provails. There isuot much furniture, but a good deal of politeness.- Mats are the principal lares ct peiatcs of a Samoan. They are handed down from father to son as heir looms as family plate tain England. When one wishes to pay speoial attention to a guest you spread your finest mat for him to sit or sleep upon. The maid of the village is a very important personage in a high chief's household. She may be a daughter or an adopted daughter. In Samoan language she is the Taupou. She acts as the chdtelaitie, rcoeives .strangers, spreads fine mats and hands the kava, bowl, which you take with tho sentiment Ma...

THE' WARUP CREEK SWAMP, WEST j AUSTRALIA. The Warup Greek Swamp is a spot which, even in], these days* of spreading settlement in tho western colony, is seldom visited by a white man.

FIG, OR BANYAN, TREE—NORTH QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 June 1891

FIG, OR BANYAN, TREE— NORTH 1 QUEENSLAND.. The fig tree depioted in our. illustration is said to be one of the largest' known 'on this conti nent, and is growing on the northern bank of the Barron River, near Kamerunga, a few miles from Cairns, in Northern Queensland. It faces the camp of the well known contractor, Mr. John Robb, who has just completed the second section 'of the Oairns-Herberton railway.' Stand ing almost free from the exceedingly dense tropical vegetation that exists around, a good idea off its immense proportions can bo readily obtained. Tho figures around its trunk seem dwarfs.' :It casts a shade over more than an acre of- .ground, whilst 150 feet is an underestimate of its height. Tho great peculiarity of this tree — one of the greatest curiosities of the vegetable world is the casting down of tendrils, whioh on touch ing ground quickly take root, soon forming a trunk out of all proportion to the height ot the tree. This is interlaced with all kinds of creepers,...

AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 June 1891

The members of the farming and gardening communities have been hard at work during the past month, for, with the exception of a few neighborhoods, the weather throughout the colony has been highly favorable for working the land either with plough or spado, and every advantage having been taken of it, the work is well advanced, a considerable area having been already sown down with wheat under favorable circumstances. The good crops of last year and the prices now ruling for wheat, have enabled selectors to defray a large portion of their payments for the land they hold. The vintage is finished, and though there are not many com plaints, neither the yield nor tho quality are quite as good as in former yearn, mainly owing to the dryness and lateness of the past season and also the destruotiou caused by the locusts. Rains have been almost general throughout the month, more especially during the first two weeks : though from a few places complaints are heard that the soil is not suffici...

SUMMARY OF EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 June 1891

IpilJKICBlla! federation has been brought within the region of practical politics, and the forthcoming acssion of Parliament which opens on the 23rd inst. will probably determine definitely how and when this important event in the history of the Australian colonies shall be oonsuuiated. Unanimity upon a question so momentous is not to be expected. Apprehensions regarding the results of the experiment, no less than local rivalrios and opposing fiscal views, occasion dis quietude in many directions, but the enormous advantages politically and commercially that would be gained by a unification of the various States oauso all minor considerations to sink into utter insignificance. ' Free-traders oil the one hand look forward to the realisa tion, of their . ardeut hopes. Sir Henry Parkes, the Premier of New South Wales, who must be oredited with the courage of his opinions has expressed a opinion that a Federal Parlia ment must of necessity possess a majority of his way of thinking upon ...
