BOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

I BOWLS. ! (By Bias.) This sport is certainly increasing in popularity in this colony. It is now so largely patronised that it is thought the time has arrived for the formation of an Association. The various clubs have been communi- cated with on the matter, and have agreed to send delegates to a meet- ing on a date to be fixed, for the purpose of considering the adivsa bility or otherwise of forming the Association. A match has been arranged be- tween the Perth and Fremantle Clubs. It will be played at Perth on January 8th.

YACHTING. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

YACHTING. (By Top Sail.) The start accorded to the Olinda in the Flying Squadron Race last Saturday enabled that boat to win comfortably. Her performance, however, was not nearly such a good one as that of the second and third boats, the Circe and Hinemoa. Each of them had to give the Olinda a long start, and they were not far behind at the finish. The Hinemoa, under new ownership, shaped so well as to cause Mr. Campbell not to regret having paid a big price for her. There will not be so many yachts as usual on the river on Sunday, for [ the reason that a number of the [ boats will be away, as a number of camping-out parties have been ar- ranged. The proposal has been thrown out that one of our *'crack" yachts should be sent to compete in the | eastern colonies. The proposal is I too premature, and is not likely to be carried out for a very consider- able time. Expense would be a very important factor in preventing the idea from being carried out.

LIES AND OTHER FACTS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

LIES AND OTHER FACTS [Br " Büngaua."] Continuing the remarks which appeared in last week's issue of the Sunday Times abont Klondyke mosquitoes that sting at both ends (the City of Perth has a stink at both ends, and in the middle, too, for that matter, but that is another subject), the Alaska mosquito, when attacked, gets up on its hind legs and barks like a dog, and it is no uncommon sight to see a pack train of mosquitoes, hitched together like camels, carrying supplies of tucker to the mines. A somewhat tragic circnmstance was reported in the Sitka News last summer, from which it appears that a party of young men had gone out yachting, with striped can vas sails on the boat. It was just at the time when striped tennis jackets were popular and all the fashion. When about three miles out from shore the boat was attacked by a party of mosquitoes, which, after severely handling the occupante, tore the sails from the spars to make tennis suits of, and flew away with them. The boat dri...

TURF TATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

! . TURF TATTLE. I - Contrary to expectation **Johnny Armstrong " was not much in evidence at Canning Park on the 17th. " A little bit to go on with " is very handy just at present. Irving Sayles is one of the most constant attendants at the Perth course in the early morning, and Fadladeen is the apple of his eye. " Lobengula" is always most em- phatic in his statements. However, words failed him the other day when criticising the rider of a recent favourite. ** It would never do for me to own horses," he said at last ; " I'd be hung !" A correspondent, with a sense of I the fitness of things, writes, sug- gesting that Tattersalls Club should give a smoke social during Cap week, and that the following numbers should be included in the programme : -Duet, ** Comrades," Messrs.

ROWING MEMS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

ROWING MEMS. The prize offered by Baron de Rothschild for the championship sculling race of France, took place on the Seine, over a distance of one anda half miles. Only thiee en- tries were received, and the winner turned up in the person of Jansen, of the Cercle Nautique de France, who defeated Martmel by half a length, with Carlton, of Boulogne, three lengths away, third. Time, 6min. 17sec., which for a mile and a half, must be considered very good. The final heat of the sculling race for the Paris Cup took place on the River Marm, at Nougat Joinville, over a course of a mile and a bit The Dutch champion, J. J. Blusse, met and defeated the English sculler MacHenry by a length and a half. Blusse competed in the last Hen- ley Regatta in the race for the Diamond Sculls, but was defeated by the winner, Ten Eyck, rather easily. Last year Mr. R. C. Lehrman, the well-known English University rowing coach, was engaged to pro- ceed to America and give the students of Harvard his services ...

About Town. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

^kttt Sràra, Messrs. Foy and Gibson, in Hay street, are showing a most attractive display of toys and £^ncy goods, to take the eye of the children, who, when once they enter, are loathe to depart in peace. This enterprising firm, are also showing some of the prettiest of muslins and at a very small cost, so that they can come within the province of even the most economical. Some channing hats are also to be seen, generally in the larger sizes, which, of course, are the more suitable for this time of the year. One sweet hat looked light and airy enough to blow away, and is trimmed with white chiffon, and blow away flowers, intermixed with foliage, others are to be seen equally attractive. Another which particularly pleased me, is of white satin straw, the crown encircled with jewelled passementerie, and further adorned with white ostrich tips, while a large pink rose had the appearance of having been thrown on to the brim. There are also to be seen some exceedingly pretty cotton cost...

DEPARTMENTAL DUPLICITY [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

DEPARTMENTAL DUPLICITY Theke is nothing wonderful in the loss of a mail bag. Even in Eng- land, where every precaution is taken for the guardianship of Her Majesty's mails, there have been robberies of this sort, and here, where no precaution is taken about anything, and where the Govern- ment business is, to a great ex- tent, carried on very nearly as it was in the days when the full population numbered about eight thousand, and the vast majority of the residents were locked up every night at sundown, the wonder is that such occurrences are not more frequent. The As- sembly appeared to be horrified when informed that mail bags had frequently been seen to fall from the carts in the streets of Perth. The general public must have sniggered over the report. The mails are carried through the streets exactly as the bread and meat are, uncovered, in open carts, often driven by larri kinish drivers, who occasionally have with them volunteer larri- kins and now and then larrikins of the ten...

Torts and Retorts. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

Our Johnnies got theirs, thus : Timid citizens of the City of Dreadful Skate have recently been somewhat severely alarmed by the warlike aspect of some of the " single men in harricks.!" Anglice, the P.W. clerks who work up at the old Barracks. Many of these gentle- men have been seen meandering down St. George's Terrace, with a large frown and a Snider-Eofield rifle with bayonet fixed ; and hence such wonderment. It seems that lately there was a sale of the arms left behind by the Imperial forces, and many of the Government clerks were glad to pick up a rifle in first class order (if of an obsolete type) for the trifling sum of eighteen pence, that being the price realised at the auction. These rifles when bored out afresh, to get rid of the rifling, make excellent duck and kangaroo gnns. If.B.-They ori- ginally cost the British taxpayer £5 to £6 each. # * # We have all got used to the ex- traordinary utterances of His Nibs of Dentchs...

SENIOR CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

SENIOR CRICKET. The total disbandment of the West Perth Seniors was forcibly brought back to our minds last Monday by the news of the awful death of "Budge Walker" Mason, and the burns suffered by " Whisk- ers" Rolfe, at Kalgoorlie. Both men were fine cricketers, " Budge" especially so. As a bowler, he had few equals in Western Australia, while his batting was of the free, attractive kind, only too rarely seen here. As a man-well, nil nisi bonum. It is understood that, had he lived, " Budge" would have been back in Perth early in 1898, where he would probably have joined the Australs, thus greatly strengthening that already strong team. But "Badge" has now been given out by the Great Umpire, against whose decisions there is no appeal.-B.LP. * # # " Johnny" Veryard's unfortu- nate accident last season has, apparently, not hurt his great and improving cricketing abilities. His 22 not out for the Australs versus East Fremantle, was a very good display, and seems to show that he is gett...

AT THE WICKETS. SPECIAL NOTICE.-Secretaries of Clubs, and Captains and Managers' of Teams, are requested to send all communications addressed : "THE UMPIRE,/ Sunday Times Office., Perth.

The Karrakatta touring team went to Bunbury on the same day. The Wanderers are off to Pin- jarra on Monday to play the local i men. An important meeting of the W.AC.

Athletics. QUOITS [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

%t\ktm. - QUOITS (By Cousin Jack.) Mat. McVee, the well-4aiown quoit player is, at present, in Perth on a holiday. He has for some time been on the goldfields, and his many friends will be pleased to learn that he is looking in the very best health. Mac won't be down for long, but it is probable that during his stay a match will be ar- ranged between him and one of the city " cracks." I would like to see a match fixed up between McVee and Brockwell. Opinions differ as to which is the better player of the two, but I would at any time pin my faith to the ex-Gippslander. I remember with what pleasure I used to watch Mac handling the quoits in front of Radovick's Hotel in Korumburra. There were some fine players among the " Cousin Jacks" and " Geordies" in that part, but Mac used to beat them all. To-morrow (Saturday) afternoon a match will be played at the Beaufort Arms rink, when nearly all the best players about the City will compete. Since writing the above I have had a talk to McVe...

LATEST SPORTING. CANNING PARK XMAS MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

LATEST SPORTING. CANNING PARK XMAS MEETING. With beautiful weather, an at- tractive programme, and every convenience provided for racegoers, the large attendance at Canning Park to-day was only the due re- ward of the Club's efforts to cater for its patrons. The train arrangements were excellent, and on the course every detail had been looked after, so that the long programme was carried through without a hitch of any sort. For this pleasing state of affairs, Mr. W. W. Berry, the secretary of the club, is respon- sible ; and, though still weak from his recent illness, he was able to be present to receive many con- gratulations on the result of his foresight and management. An innovation in a " place " totalÍ8atorwas not much patronised, nor were operations thoroughly understood. Many were surprised to find they got less money back than they had paton after backing a favourite, and there were also some disgusted individuals who put their money on the 1, 2, 3 machine, thinking they we...

SECOND JUNIORS. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

SECOND JUNIORS. The chief defeat in the last round- of matches in this Associa tion was that administered by the Telephones to Sands and McDou gall, which put them both with the East Perth level in the run- ning for the Premiership. A very good win, too, was that of the M.M.C. over Dr. W. Murray, while Shenton Park furnished a surprise by beating Karrakatta. I hope my friend, George Hollis, will draw the attention of his Associa- tion to the remarks I have made re the "pointing," etc., in the F.J.A. matches, because, even the innocent, childlike, and bland Second Juniors are not entirely guiltless of similar practices. One or two complaints have reached me, too, about the umpires. It would be well if the F.J.A. also appointed its own men, and in flicted fines and forfeiture for de- lay. Cricket all round is improv- ing- management of the game must not be allowed to stagnate. Let Seniors and Juniors alike try to push the game along.

THE GOLDEN FLEECE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

*? THE GOLDEN FLEECE. (By a Goldfields Expert.) I note that under the caption of "An Expert's Report," the Australian Mining Standard publishes a skit of my own on the subject of experts' reporte gener- ally, which was originally published in the Coolgardie Mirier considerably over twelve months ago. The Australian Mining Standard is good enough to say that the effusion is "rather clever," but does not condescend to acknowledge either the authorship or the original vehicle of publication. The satire in question consisted of a letter addressed to the Miner, signed "D. Fees" and as the Standard considers the stuff good enough for its readers, it may probably cause some little amusement to mine. The epistle ran as follows : I have a valuable mine for sale. I know it is valuable because I found it myself. I pegged it out in a blinding willy-willy, and its location is therefore north-east by east-south-nor9 and by west. To speak officially: "The datum line runs from the peg to a blue spo...

LIMBERGER CHEESE. [Newspaper Article] — West Australian Sunday Times — 26 December 1897

LIMBERGER CHEESE. (By a Good Boy) , Ma sent me to pay a bill at the grocer's last Saturday. The boss behind the counter made me a present of something wrapped in a piece of silvery paper, which he told me was a piece of Limberger cheese. When I got outside the shop I opened the paper, and when I smelt what was inside I felt tired. I took it home and put it in the coal shed. In the morning I went to it again; it was still there; nobody had taken it. I wondered what I could do with it. Father and mother weie getting ready to go to church. I put a piece in the back pocket of father's pants, and another piece in the lining of ma's muff. I walked be- hind when we started for church. It was begiuning to get warm. When we got in church father looked anxious and mother looked as if something had happened. After the first hymn, mother told Father not to sing again, but to keep his mouth shut and breathe tli:ough his nose. After the prayer perspiration stood on father's face, and the people i...
