Mr. ICeighran, who was born at Campbelltowa in 1824, was one of the pioneers of the Hay district, where he was Inspector of Stock at the time of his daath, In his early life Mr. Knighran was a smart pedes trian, but he was beaten in a match by Dicker Hamilton (indentical with ' the Adelaide Stag' and 'Tout Cela,' a sporting pressman) in 1849 Of late years ho did not take a very active interest in turf matters, cving to his posi tion as a Government servant, but in the gocd old days that are gone, when C.

The Athletic Life. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 3 March 1894

The Athletic Life. Sir Benjamin Ward Richardson's recent address on ' The Athletic Life,' delivered to the Birming ham Athletic Association, is published in the January number of Longman's Magazine. Sir Benjamin says that the athlete who has learned precision, decision, presence of mind, and endur ance may be considered to stand in the first rank, in whatever form of athleticism he may follow — walking, running, riding, swimming, cycling, row ing, skating, wrestling, boxing, fencing, cricket, tennis, or any other athletic display. Four things follow as a necessity : Abstinen«e from hurtful things, regular and good habits, calmness of temper, and laudable ambition. The doetor is ' bound to ex clude ruthlessly all drinks containing alcohol from those who would be first in athletic competitions of all kinds. The best of all drinks for tbe athleta is pure water.'

Additional Conditional Purchases. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 3 March 1894

Additional Conditional Purchases. A decision affecting hundreds of holders of original conditional purchases throughout the colony was given by the Land Court of Appeal ait ting at Darlinghurst on Tuesday, says the Herald. ! The Tumbarumba Land Board referred the appli- j cation of Robert M'Micking, for an additional con ditional purchase of 180 acres afc Tumbarumba, made on the 7th May, 1892, for the decision of the Court. It appears that the application was made in virtue of an original conditional purchase of 320 acres made in 1878, and held by M'Micking. In his evidence before the board applicant stated that the balance due on his original conditional purchase was paid on 11th June, 1890, and that property was thus converted into a freehold. The Court on Tuesday ruled that on the date oE his application tor an aaaiuonai couaiciouai puruuasu iu juiu&iug was not the holder of a conditional purchase within the meaning of section 42 of the principal Act so as to be enabled b...

The attendance was not large BO far as the inside of tho hall was concerned, but judging from the disreputable conduct outside a pretty fair muster had assembled there, greatly to . the annoyance of those who had come to hear the candidate's views. Mr. Duffy spoke for about three lours on all the leading questions of the day. At its close a hearty vote of thanks was accorded him for the able manner in which he had addressed the '.meeting. ?

Divorce Made Easy. Realisi ng that competition is the soul of business, the new territory of Oklahoma, in the United States, is making a strong bid for what is called in that country the divorce trade. The New York Times publishes quotations from a circular sent out irom tne new town or .Terry by an enterp rising at. torney, who says: — 'Since the Legislature of the state of South Dakota changed the law last winter of that state, lengthening the residence required before bringing suit for divorce from three to six months, Oklahoma Territory has been attracting attention as a divorce centre. For the information of tho general public and the profession in other States, I have concluded to issue this circular letter containing briefly the important features of the divorce law of this territory. The statutes of Oklahoma Territory require 90 days' previous resi dence before commencement of action, as in South Dakota before tho change of law. Divorces in this territory may be granted for ...

DUNGOG. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 3 March 1894

DUNGOG. We have had quite a number of would-be members of Parliament round this way lately, but somehow their reception was very cool. No doubt they say some very nice things to us and about us. Of course this is their business. There is a lurking suspicion in the minds of most men here that it is tha money most of them are after. However, I do not think they need waste their wind, as the people of Durham are not likely to forget their old and tried member, who is ever on the watch for the benefit of the country and the district he repre sents. I am satisfied that all intelligent men will agree that our financial position would not have been so satisfactory had not our member thrown asido party and voted in the interests of the whole. However, these are truths that are like good wine : they need no bush. Our member's quiet, un aesnming manner would be well if copied by a good number of M's.P. I would have sent a report of meetings held by Messrs. Duffy, Ryan, and John son, but I rea...

. 'A Brilliant Forecast. I Australia bus had traducers in England both recent and ancient. But other treatment waB accorded to her oil January 9, when Miaa Shaw read to tbe members of the Royal Colonial Institute a paper on 'The Austra lian Outlook.' The spirit of prophecy descended upon tbe accomplished ladv ionr nalist, and the principal fault in her perform ance is that with the eye of faith Bhe seas a?) Australian future too glowing and too gor geous for local belief. However, one effect of ^ her paper bas been to bn'ng these provinces in uncommon colours before the attention of the British public. The paper has been commented upon by many of the leading journals in England. Punch favours the subject with a cartoon. The Court Circular has written upon it.

TAREE. I The weather lately has been very unsettled, and j though not very much rain has fallen, yet wet days | have been so numerous as to greatly hinder farmers in oorn pulling, relating to which, I can voraciously state is the heaviest that has been for many year3. Judging by tho splendid maize crops on all the river3, corn is certain to be very cheap, as it is said tnere is sufficient on the Clarence alone to supply all Sydney. A bazaar was held in aid of the Presbytery in the Belmore Hall on the 14th, 15th, 16th, and 17th, the attendance at which was large, the results being as successful as could reasonably bo expected these a ? mnT,nT7losnt,imHB. The concert given on each night was highly approved of, and was a 1 credit to the leading amateurs, who kindly assisted to promote its general advancement.

Scobie to our Mayor, and as this promises the early arrival of funds to replenish the empty coffers of the borough, I take this opportunity of disseminating the glad tidings, so that the hearts of tbe Council's labourers may be cheered. Some of them had to lie out of their wages for over a couple of months now, and they will rejoice that at length there is a prospect of getting their own.

The period at which a man's mental faculties succumb fc-- the --ffrC's of alcohol, nud he becomes eccentric and i- responsible m tun notions has fre quently bo*n a muter of controveisy, and yester day a witness in a divorce suit in Sydney gave a definition which, if not new, was at least amusiug. He said that his definition of drunkenness, was ' when a man tried to light his pipe at the pump.' Owing to the threats of the Adelaide unem ployed, Commissioner Peterawald has refused permission for the annual police picnic on tho ground that it is unsafe to leave fcho city un guarded. Two disproportionate sentences were awarded at the Paddington Police Court. A man for ob taining £2 by means of a valueless cheque was sentenced to a month's imprisonment, and a boy of 15, who stole 2 guineas, was sentenced to four months' hard labor. In the latter case the boy re turned the money he stole, but in the former nothing of the £2 was recovered. It is not only in Sydney i3 th...
