And we must compliment thorn on tho very excellent showing they made, for, although not per fectly versed in tho intricacies of tho Rugby rule book, they nevertheless playod a fast, hard, battling game, which carried their opponents off their feet. It must be lemembered that the new club ha? only played three or four games, and as they Beem to improve on each occasion, it is quite with in tho bounds of possibility they will again succeed in holding their own . very fairly against the Wellington Club, when next they meet. One word of advice we would proffer them, is, the need for a stricter at tention to tho finer points of the game. Time after time good opportunities were lost by players getting the...

Wellington as a Railway Depot. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 13 July 1899
'Wellington as a Railway _ Depot. The claims of Wellington to be the great railway depot of the western country of New South Wales are growing greater and stronger aB years goes by. Time was when Bathurst was a great centre, and no one begrudged it the government workshops and all that carries with it. But times have changed and are changing still. The back country has grown so much in importance, its wealth has so increased, the produce from its land, in the way of cattle, sheep, and grain, has so wonderfully grown, that Bathurst is now too far away to bo able to oope with the increase of railway traffic. Wo need another large depot, where engines and trucks can be repaired, and that depot must be Wellington. Putting aside for a moment tbe great increase in production of the Wellington district proper, look at the further back country. Land is being taken up all along the line, new country is going under cultivation, and the carriage of cattle and sheep is increasing. Certainly the...

' ; The General, who is one of the most modest men living, replied with some embarrassment that he did not ' know ; and then he added : ' Do you V'. ' Why, certainly 1' the pretty woman replied. ' It's two in the shade, of course.'
