PLAYS AND PLAYERS [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 1 December 1893

"PLAYS AND PLAYERS Apicesentitlel the Gaiety Girl, a new musical comedy, the words by heesrs Owen Hall and Harry Greenbank, the music by aIr SydneyJones, is one of the latest London oen ce es.Itis bright, merryand entereaining, and at is opined will enjoy a loner run. In its original condition the Lord Chamberlain's department refused to license the play, and the necessary permission for production was obtainedonly at tho eleventh hour, after ecr. -tain revisions and excisions. As a controversy has sprung up in regard to an introduction of a clergyman into the piece, a low comedy clergyman too, it is probable that it was this part that first caused the English censor of the stage to hesitate in regard ts licensing the piece. The plot of the piece is comparatively simple, and shows how one Charles Goldfield, a captoin in the Life Guards, has fallen in love with a Gaiety girl, Alma Somerset, and intends making her his wife.Goldfield's aunt, Lady Floreat, does not wish the marriage, an...

HERE ANB THEIE, --o· A slaugbter-hoeuse is certainly not, like the Il Bellarine Gardens, a place to spend a happy day; bat it is quite evident that there ia much to learn about abattoirs, and much that one is all the better for knowing. I did a not sit down to my steak with my usual zest after reading in " The Herald" that the corporation to which, I pay rates does not do sufficieat to guarantee me against tuberaculosi; nor did I enjoy my - matutinal chop with the possibilities of pneumonia clinging to it. I fear that that article on the Melbourne Shambles muet have been a sore destroyer of appetites. Let u, me tell you a story I heard from a medical , gentleman with a large practice, illustrating the dangers we amrnivoraus people run. My informant was talking to a brother medico, e.

Asparagus is sold by the bunch, and. the price ranges according to earliness and quality. It is far easier to sell a good. crop than a poor one, or even one of medium quality.

To Found a Socialist Colony. Among the emigrants who reently soiled from Liverpool for the purpose of founding a Socialist colony in Paraguay was a young man about whom much (says the "New. castle Leadero" London correspondent) is likely to be heard in years to come.
