EDITORIAL TROUBLES. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 14 February 1885

EDITORIAL TROUBLES. The rural editor sat in his office writ ing an able and convincing' editorial on ' The F.uropean War Cloud,' and had succeeded in embroiling France, Germany and Spain in a sanguinary struggle when t'..e ' Old Subscriber ' entered, squirted a stream of tobacco juice with nice pre cision into the cupsidor, removed some thing|froin his vest pocket and remarked : 'oeetnaty 'Well what's that?' queried the editor. ' That's a Kentucky goose-bone, right from the breast of a fowl slaughtered only last week. And d'ye see that dark por tion c vering nearly the entire bone ?' ' Y-eis,' said the editor, vaguely, as lie hastily scrulinised the bone. ' What does it portend ?' ' It predicts a howling cold winter — thermometer jumping away below zero every day during January and snow lying three feet on tho ground until the middle of March.

GOSSIPING CORNER. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 14 February 1885

GOSSIPING CORNER. The elections have passed -arid the excit ing contests have not even resulted in any broken heads. My prognostications of last week were pretty correct, Mr.. Editor, con sidering that I tipped three out ot the four successful candidates. The only ease in which I was astray was tlie South-west Ward, anil in that I was very doubtful ; but, I feel sure of this, that hail Mr. Rey nolds not contested the election Mr. Kenniff would not have regained his seat. Whether there is any truth in the statement that Reynolds' candidature was to split the vote or not, it had that much desired effect (on the part of Kenniff) with the result that he headed the poll. Let us hope that gentle man will improve iu this, his second term of office. All the other contests wero pretty, olose and each of the defeated candidates took his rejection iu a good-tempered man ner, although Mr. Elkington was some what cut up at hearing tho repeated groans when he desired to address the large audi enc...
