CRICKET.—By Point. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 28 October 1893

CRICKET.— By Point. Cricketers wore favoured with a fine afternoon last Saturday, and attracted good attendances, especially on the West Hobart ground, where the City and Trinity met. It was thought that the City were likely to make a win, but ' You never know until the scores go up.' This proved the case on Saturday when Trinity had an easy win, with 69 runs and 3 wickets to spare. Rnllnriira beat West Hobart bv fi3 runts ! Union Jack made 85 against Endeavor 25 ; Gasworks defeated Dawn by one innings aud eight runs. Postal Telegraph could not get a team to go down to Eokeliy, and thus forfeited their match.

A match between the railway employees was played on the top ground on Saturday last, when the Northern men, after a good game, won by 49 runs.

PALMISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 28 October 1893

PALMISTRY. The First Phalanx of the Thumb.— The first phalanx of the thumb repre sents the power and energy of the will as well as great self-confidence. \i long, it appertains to the Jupiterian, Saturnian, and Mercurian organisa tions, whose will and good sense always dominate their, impulses. A short first phalanx indicates weak ness ; a mind more influenced uy sen timent and passion than by either right or justice. It is common in all sensitive organisations where instinct masters thought, and where the sen timents of inspirations are more powerful than the convictions of reasoning. Women as a rule hare (short first phalanges. If the first and second phalanges are of equal length, it indi cates an exact equilibrium between the judgment and the will. A short but broad first indicates stubbornais ; an irregular will, without discern ment ; the extremes of joy and sorrow and melancholy. ANSWERS.

Hoiden Hubbub. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 28 October 1893

Hoiden Hubbub. Each aud every mortal hour it lasts, in this manner; the infinite hubbub unslackened. Judging by certain recent news- paper civilities and mutual public and private compliments relations seem to be somewhat strained between the junior member for West Hobart and the very temperate, morbidly tempe- rate, more anon scribe of Murray street. People who have been watch- ing events for some time back wonder what is the cause of the sudden dis- ruption. Only a few mouths ago the former was energetically working up an address and testimonial from his countryman to the quasi Home Rule editor, whose powerful articles have had such effect on the Tories in Eng land. A large meeting of Irishmen, with West Hobart as chairman, pre sented the address with much felici tation on both the sides of the giver and the recipient, and when the formal business was all over the tee total editor, who never never sinks his principles graciously allowed his health to be drunk in champagne and good...

THE COMING ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 4 November 1893

THE COMING ELECTION. Dear Clipper,— As the general election is now close at hand it would be as Well if the electors would refrain from promising their votes, ia some good nien ana true are likely to be nominated. South Biobart can do with a change, Dr. Giblin signally failed to prove himself a competent representa tive of this district. The House cannot very well do without Clark, and whatever his faults may be h* has the courage of his oniniont and is head and shoulders abovn his fellow members in real ability. West Hobart will do well to return its old members. The electors of this district should look with suspicion upon men who are prepared to run with the hare and hunt with the hounds in order to catch votes. They have two straight 'uns now, if they take my advice they will stick to them. For North Hobart the electors cannot do better than place Crisp at the head of the poll. He is one the hardest working representatives wo have for tho cily — always fights the battle of the w...

A large crowd filled the Dei-wont Athletic Club room in Harrington-street on Mon day evening last to witness the battle for the featherweight championship of Tas mania between Harry Perry, of Victoria, and Jimmy Evans, of Tasmania. By 8.30 the time announced for the commencement of the proceedings the hall was packed, and Charlie Murphy, who acted as master of ceremonies with the manager Clifford, stepped into the ring and formally opened business by sending Snowy and Franks to work for four rounds, the lads acquitting themselves creditably.

PALMISTRY. SECOND PHALANX OF THE THUMB. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 4 November 1893

PALMISTRY. SECOND PHALANX OF THE THUMB. The second phalanx shows, if long, great reasoning power, logic, percep tion and judgement, the good sense to desire only what may be obtained by our means or faculties. When the second phalanx is only moderately developed aud the first very much, it denotes a will that can master the passions, but only by diverting the thoughts into another channel by means of steady work. The second phalanx of the thumb, short, denotes inconstancy in friend ship and want of fidelity to party, political or otherwise. The person ma}7 be capable of sudden acts of de votion and possible heroism, but only on the spur of the moment ; he will lack the stability aud perseverance necessary to follow up a noble act, and will relapse into his normal state of vacillation and apathy. The third phalanx of the thumb partakes of the qualities of the Mount of Venus.
