A MISCHIEVOUS MEDIUM. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 10 February 1887

A Mischievous Medium. I'vo been and gono and done it ; What was tho bait I took ? 'Twiui after supper, and champagne Had glorifiou the hook. Her oyos seomed so bine and tender Her hair liko a golden rain ; Foaturos lovely — a.'as ! 'twas all Materialised champagne. I thought her both wise and' witty, I couldn't have boen quite sano ; I heard — but not hor words ; I heard Materialised champagne. Sho sang to mo after supper. A mystic, sweet refrain ; 'Twas but a Rtale old ditty, and Materialised champagne. I thought she was but sweet eighteen — Sho won't soo thirty again ; Her youthful looks wero nothing but Materialised champagne. I asked her if she would be mino, 1 did not ask in vain ; So I became engaged to Materialised champagne. This all took place but yesternight ; I saw her once again, And found hor charms had only boon Materialised champagne. Her hair is carrots by daylight, . Sho is absolutely plain ; And all I'd worshipped in lier was Materialised champagne. 'Tih sad, aftor...

WISE AND OTHERWISE. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 10 February 1887

WISE AND OTHERWISE. ' I can flay one thing in favour of Mr. Fcatherly,' remarked Mrs. Hendricks, the landlady. ' Ho never takes the last piece of bread on the plate.' ' No, indeed, Mrs. Hendricks;' assented Dumley, cordially, ' Featherly ain't quick enough.' Now tho merry maiden gooth forth In gala-day array, To sit bosido tho crested wavo, ' And with tho sea shells play. Sho takes off hor dainty slippers And her carmino-tintod hoso, And wades into tho wator For to bathe her pretty toes. To-night, up in her chamber, there — Not haunted by rcpoao — Sho wonders where sho got them all, Tho freoklos on hor nose. Father : tf V ou are a bad boy.' Johnny: 'No I ain't.' ' Yes you are, and if you give me any moro impudence I'll punish you severely. 1 11 tell your sister to play a tune on the piano for you.' Johnny promised to behave himself henceforth. Let tho parsonio elf, Who is kin to Chinee, ? Speak alone for himself, And not dare speak for me. If ho says that the Ohinkey's his brother. ...

LATEST NEW ZEALAND SPOUTING. AUCKLAND, January 31. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 10 February 1887

LATEST NEW ZEALAND SPORTING. (FKOII OCR OWN' COREESI'GNDKNT.) Auckland, January Ml. j On Saturday, the 2!)th, Auckland put on its gala costumc and celebrated its forty seventh anniversary. The day is always put apart for tho annual regatta, and for tho first time for four vears we were treated to fine weather. It was a glorious day, and there was plenty of wind to make all the sailing races interesting. It is almost disheartening to notice that some baneful influence has come over sailing in our midst. A few years back the champion schooner race was the event of the day, and often as many as a dozen large craft would make a start ; hut that is all now a thing ol tlie past, and this, with several other races, has been shunted to make room for something else. With our splen did harbour, second to none in the world, even Sydney, for yachting purpose:-, it i3 surprising to find that for the large yacht race there was not a single entry, although wo havo a fine fleet, which, though not l...

"LIKE HIS IMPUDENCE." [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 10 February 1887

'LIKE HIS IMPUDENCE.' A magistrate sits on the bench of ?justico to decide cases that are brought before him according to the evidence nnd not to minimise their importance, to excuse brutality, to'bid an injured man put up with ill treatment, and generally to make the attempt to ob tain redress for wrong doing difficult. But evidently poor old Marsh, of tlie Water Police Court, does not under stand his duty, or more probably is past understanding it, for those, are tlie very things he did when Kemp, the rower, was brought before liim charged with a most disgraceful and blackguardly attack upon that quiet, decent, and popular young oarsman, Nun. Mattep.sox. If Kio.mp can prove he is not guilty so much the better for him. If ho can show ho had provoca tion,, well, so much the better for him again. , But he stands before the world as having behaved like a brute and a coward, as having attacked an unoffending man, and purposely dis figured him, and it is the duty of a magistrate to hear...

A GOOD MOVE. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 10 February 1887

A GOOD MOTE. Wo (lo not admit politics into our | clironide of pastimes, but wo are very glad to see tlio masters of pas times going into politics, which we are quite sure they will improve. If WiiiMAJisox, Gaunt. it ancl Musuuovk managed the country s financial affairs there would be no deficit, and if all the managers in Sydney formed the Ministry the legislative show would be run in peace, and over in good time. Therefore wo are de lighted to think that Mr. G kiitin, one of tho proprietors of the Manly Aquarium has come forward for tho Hawkcsbury, and we hope Sir Hknuy Pahkes will make him Minister for Works. He has shown himself a first-class organiser ; he knows liow to get full value for money; and-liois immensely popular in the district whore he lives, and the one he intends to represent. He is just the man for the place, and he ought to go in with nying colours. In the present condition of affairs we want men .who' {ire upright, clever, straightforward, and energetic, ancl t...

From tho numerous kiiullv nnd complimentary notices of the Rkkkukk which havo appeared iu our country contemporaries we select the follow ing : — Wkstkkn Independknt, Februaiiy 4. The Sydney Kefeuee. — We must con fess that when some three or four months ago we received the first copy of the oydne v jtEFEREE we did not think it would lou-; survive. This opinion was based on tlie fact that it had been con ceived and started on a far too costly stylo to make it a commercial success. A thoroughly good sporting paper is a source of great and continual expense to its pro prietors, and we feared that the Kefeuee, beyond doubt tlie best sporting paper iu the colony, would have either been reduced to a mere 'paragraph snatehcr,' and so diminish expenses, or — cave in. We rejoice to find that we were mistaken. Instead of declining in giving original sporting news, each week shows a marked improvement on the previous one, and it may faithfully be sty...
