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

A great check has been given to agricultural operations, and heavy losses of various kinds have been sustained through tho long continued rains and the immense floods: whioh have occurred in consequence. ; The flood waters have covered and injured : or destroyed many ncrea of cereal crops. Numbers of Bheep have been drowned and young lambs have suffered severely ; great damago has been done to build ings and other property, miles of roads have been under water, bridges have been injured or swept away, some of tho railway linos have been blocked, and trafflo of all kinds has been stopped or delayed.'- It is fortunate that nearly all corcals are in the ground,1 bo that thore is not much work requiring to be j done, tor the soil was made too wet to. set foot upon.

THE COLLINGWOOD WORKING MEN'S CLUB.—(SEE PAGE 8.) COLLINGWOOD WORKING MEN'S CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 August 1891

COLLINQWOOD WORKING MEN'S OLUB. , As. the olub for working men recently estab lished at Oollingwood serves as an experiment in a'branoh of social improvement hitherto ' but little attempted in the colonios, a brief account of its objects and prospects should, prove of interest. An endeavor to draw men of the labor, ing olasses together in a similar way for mutual berioflfc was made in Melbourne a few years ago, but fa^ed., mainly, if 1« said,! owing, to ' the difficulty of getting , a r sufficiently '' large number to aotively .undertake ', the.. work , of organisation at the outset. - In the formation of tho Oollingwood olub, however, no such' initial impediment was experienced, the , 1 ( greatest enoouragomont, on the contrary, being afforded the promoters from the time their first efforts were made until the recent successful opening of tho new institution.

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

The long deferred Grand National Steeple ohase meeting of the Viotoria Racine Club was commenced at Flemingtou on July 24, the course in parts being a perfoot quagmire, and during the running for the third race rain fell and con tinued without intermission until the close of the day, making all present uncomfortable. As the horses returned to scale after each race those who had not been fortunate enough to be in front all the way were, like the riders, covered with mud, presenting a most wretohed appearance. In the ciroumstances the attendance, though less than usual at such an important moating, was decidedly beyond expectation, the ' Governor, with Lady Hopetoun and a numerous party from Government House, being present to witness the racing. Mr. Miller, whose success in jumping races is proverbial, won the first event, the Maiden Hurdle Race, with Irip, who led all the way, beating Star of Erin, St. Louis and four others.

The four weeks in Mel bourne netted, it is stated, £15,000, and a woek in Adelaide gave the gross receipts at £6000. In Sydney the result has been no less satisfactory. The Gaiety Company at the Princess's Theatre has also proved tho liberal support given by playgoers in' the ooloniea to really first class entertainments, no matter of what description. The houses have been bumpers nightly, and it would almost seein that tho burlesque of Ruy Bias or the Blaad1 Ruo would go on for ever.

O'Xjoghlen, who is privileged to. bo always against the Government, there was practically no opposition to the proposals brought down. The principal mombors on both sides of the Chamber were in accord, and the addresses delivered were made more to the constituencies than to the House. Not that tyie matter exoited the least interest throughout the country.

SOME INCIDENTS OF RESCUE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 August 1891

SOME INCIDENTS OF RESCUE. The inhabitants residing on the low lying land 'between Chapel-street and Cromwell-road, South Yarra, were amongst those who suffered most sevoroly.by Sunday's flood, and they will have a vivid reoolleotion of this year's inundation. The tenements in the district consist chiefly of single story weatherboard cottages, erected about four years ago, the only two-story buildings in the locality being those facing the Toorak-road, these being very few in. number. Notwithstanding the lowness of the land, the heavy rainfall of the previous day, and the fact that the River Yarra was known generally on Saturday evening to be rising rapidly, the people retired to rest on Saturday night with, a consciousness of- security, fully oonvinoed that an overflow from the Yarra would not in any way reach ..their dwellings. This feeling of security, how ever, was shaken considerably before daybreak on Sunday, the flood having extended from (die river across the Toorak-road to t...
