Os-Ko-Mon, the North American Indian with the yell, concluded his Sydney season on Wed nesday, and reappears at Melbourne to-night. The Dancing Mistress has Induced so many callers at Her Majesty's during her first week's tuition that it is unfortunate her session is to be limited to only another week. Maggie Dickinson gets them on all floors in the name part; while there is a comprehensive support that makes this one of the most popu lar of the revivals. The Cooks have finished their home-building ?t the Criterion, and made room for Get Rich Quick Wallingford, who will start his money making schemes to-night.

EXCITING RACING AT KENSINGTON SOME RECORDS BROKEN. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 2 September 1916
EXCITING RACING AT KENSINGTON SOME RECORDS BROKEN. There was a great crowd at Kensington on Wednesday, and some very exciting racing was witnessed. Fortunately, backers were on the winners of most of the cIofc finishes, and con sequently the books had a very bad time, the only real turn up fur them being Lady Merv ir. the run-oiT of the Flying Handicap, as she v.Ms allowed to go to the post at 7 to 1. That ;:re.it little marc Lady Mascot just won the Ko:irtccn-one after a fine finish with Sim rrercss and Quickstep. The latter finished very fnst. and would probably have won only for losing ground by swinging out wide entering 'he straight. Lady Mascot broke the previous rrcord by half a second, ind was ridden by W. Evans, who. since the beginning of the year, has ridden 32 winners out of 132 mounts, which gives some idea of Evans' superiority over most of the pony jockeys. There were three divisions In the Flying, and in the first backers made no mistake in mak ing Loud Report favori...

VICTORIA PARK RACES TO-DAY BIG FIELDS LIKELY. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 2 September 1916
VICTORIA PARK RACES TO-DAY BIG FIELDS LIKELY. For a Saturday meeting the entries are very big at Victoria Park this afternoon, and the fields are likely to be very much above the average. Racing is to begin at 1 o'clock with the Maiden Handicap, which is to be run in two divisions, and if Regal Chanter were to show a bit of the pace she demonstrated when racing at the registered meetings she would have a chance; but she did not run too well at Victoria Park recently. Resby is one that should run well, as he has un doubted pace, but as Carroreagh has run a third and a second in similar company at his last two runs he looks a winner this afternoon. If Colfrain was to get in the second division he would have a chance, and as Coolamble was re cently well backed for a similar race, he might be troublesome. The Tuck has gone up I lib for his win, and may be hard to beat again. Moving Picture is fast, but he has not run lor some time, al though I am of the opinion he is a horse that doer, ...

KILBOY DOING WELL HIS DERBY CHANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 2 September 1916
KILBOY DOING WELL HIS DERBY CHANCE. The New Zealand colt Kilboy continues to do well on the track, and on Thursday went par ticularly well with Silent Way over a mile. He left the latter at the distance and finished in tip-top style. Silent Way is not the best of track gallopers, and this in a way discounts Kilboy's effort, but, all the same, the time was really good. Kilboy is beginning to tighten up, but I think when even at his best he will give the impression of being above himself, as he is a very big-barrelled horse.
VICTORIAN FOOTBALL NOTES To-day's Big Final [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 2 September 1916
VICTORIAN FOOTBALL NOTES To-day's Big Final By OLD PLAYER. The Weither King was anything bat gene rous in connection with the League final last Saturday. A gusty northerly wind blew across the ground, but favored the west end, if any tMng. Tbe breeze made the ball cut strange capers in the air at times, but the aeroplane artists on both sides fairly held their own with the contending elements. Men like Dick, John son, Shortell, and Heaney pulled down high marks with all the confidence begotten of calm conditions. FitzToy were playing »o poorly in the middle of tbe season that even their staunchest sup porter could have had little hope of the Mi rcons having any real chance for the premier s-hip. On June 5 Richmond achieved a record by beating them 19.13 to 9.14. Thence till the end of the first round on July 29, Fitzroy did r.ot gain a single winning bracket. As a matter of fact; the two victories of the Maroons hap pened in the first two matches of the season. But the boys from Fit...
Periscopic Peeps [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 2 September 1916
'fieriscppicjigeps By CISEAUX. Girls with the most cheek do the least blush ing. It is easier to forget what to remember than to remember what to forget. It is always to a man's credit to pay cash. The most curious thing in the world is a woman who isn't. Horse-sense is the faculty for refusing wild cats. 'Dr.' is an abbreviation frequently used to express the relationship of a patient to his phy sician. A woman always looks before she leaps— if there is a mirror handy. Women who wear tight shoes have narrow soles. There is a suggestion in London every rnov ing-pictore hall should remain lighted all the time. What with this and the Daylight Saving Bill the chances of young couples are gradu ally being reduced to vanishing point. Mrs. 'Opkins, convinced that the Huns are beginning to get in the soup, wonders if it's Peace soup. The Herr Preceptor frowned as he scanned little Fritz's writing exercise.

BILLY GLENN'S DISTINCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 2 September 1916
BILLY GLENN'S DISTINCTION. In somewnat singular style some atnietes who had been located in this country, and anxious to fight in Colonial battalions, have gone back to the Commonwealth for the purposes of en listment, says the Manchester Athletic News. Others have saved time by joining the Home land forces. But there have been cases. wherein men from over the seas have come to England for the purposes of volunteering. Some time ago W. S. Glenn (Billy Glenn, as he was affectionately Known 'to nil* iricnuny |»iiiu jhi» uwii uiiu mh wife's, faxes from .

HORSES IN PHYSIC GARLIN AND CETIGNE. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 2 September 1916
HORSES IN PHYSIC GARLIN AND CETIGNE. Garlin did not work on Thursday, but no thing amiss with the son of Linacrc, though Donohue was of the opinion that a light dose of physic would do him good. Those who have seen Garlin recently say he looks really well, and are of the opinion that if his leg stands he will be quite forward enough to do himself iustice in the Epsom. Cctignc is an other that has had a little ball, and he has been cased up a bit in consequence. I believe it was the intcniion to run him at Kosehill last Saturday but lie was not too r.ood. and it was accordinr.ly decided that a doFc of medi cine would do him no harm. What Cctijnc'-j mission is is still a matter --f conjecture, but the chances are he will be allowed to tak; his place in the Epsom field, and if he misses it items pretty sale to r.ay he will be a runner in the Metropolitan.

Moorcfield will be the attraction for followers of registered racing this oiicrnoon, and a good crowd is sure to be in attendance. There arc several horses engaged, who have important missions in the Spring, and their form in the circumstances will be interesting at Moorc ficld. Twenty-five horses arc run in a race, so divisions will probably not have to be rcsor:ed to. although there is a chance in the Ko,.aiah Statics, as there arc over 3U entered.

COURSING [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 2 September 1916
COURSING By AMESBUKY. The 1916 season is rapidly drawing to a close — it ends on September 15 — and quite a number of owners have already put their dogs aside until next March When the end comes it will be written down as one of the least successful season of modern times, that is so far as N.S. Wales is concerned. The Association was to have wound up its season at Rooty Hill with a two-days' meeting, but one day (Thursday) sufficed owing to the shortage of nominations. This is generally the case late in' the season, but tbe trouble has been accentuated this time, there apparently L^Cing 3 £lC'l Bttori*£C vft UU(3, vvu^ut iumi. u any amount of sickness in the kennels, or has been. Still, the support accorded the Asso ciation 'by owners has been far below reason able expectations. Good stakes have been ad vertised with liberal added money, but the re sponse has been very poor. This afternoon the Mudgee District C.C. will bring off its sixth and final meeting of the sea son on the loc...
FRANK SLAVIN'S REASON FOR FIGHTING FOR EMPIRE A BOXER ON THE EMPIRE "A GRAND OLD MOTHER WORTH FIGHTING FOR" [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 2 September 1916
FRANK SLAVING REASON FOR FIGHTING FOR EMPIRE A BOXER ON THE EMPIRE 'A GRAND OLD MOTHER WORTH FIGHTING FOR' By FRANK P. SLAVIN in English Review. It is more than probable that a good many readers of the English Review may wonder what a retired pugilist, turned soldier in his fifty-sixth year, can have to say about the inner feelings of the Colonies and the Empire and the war — that is, anything worth readinc. That wonder is quite natural, for I suppose that very few people in these islands have ever heard anything about me or about my life, outside the boxing ring. But, as a matter of fact, I became a professional pugilist more or less by accident, as most professional pugilists have done. My accident, if I may say so. was directly due to the centuries old antagonism be tween Ulster and the test of Ireland, and made me not only a pugilist, but a politician as well, of a kind. It happened this way. BORN IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. I have always been called a Cornstalk (i.e.. a New South Walia...
SOMETHING LIKE CONFIDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Arrow — 2 September 1916
? SOMETHING LIKE CONFIDENCE. The following story is told in American Lawn Tennis : It was the challenge round of la Eastern event, and of the two opponents one man, on form, was quite above the other, but he bore the reputation of bcins erratic. The better player lost the first set without winning a game, but at the start of the second he bet a friend that he would exactly reverse the score. He won his bet. The third was also a love set, the poorer player winning it and leading at two sets to one. Mr. Good Player evened the score by winning again at love, and the fifth name began. 'Bet you I let him get match point and then beat him,' cried the inveterate wagcrer. He was on, and the other man (jot to match point. 'Bet you I win with an ace for the last shot,' boasted the crack. 'Give you two to one on it.' His friend nodded and the crack 'not to match point. He had six chances to win the match after a rally, but would take none of them. Then his opponent came in under, a drive, and ...

FISHING NOTES — v TRIPS FOR WEEK.END By PISCATOR. High-water to-djy at Sydney about 10.50 a.m. and 11.10 p.m., to-morrow at 11.40 a.m., and midnight. To prophesy weather two days ahead re liably during spring-time is waste of time; the season is too fickle, but a barometer, weather forecasts in the newspapers, the signs in the sky, and the direction of the winu jrc fair guides to an experienced fisherman, and the relationship o. all these to the weather ought to be our constant study. By close observa tion of Nature's signs, the aboriginals became very accurate short-range weather prophets. They were much guided by the doines of in sects: ants especially. This week-end the outlook for black-fish anglers is good. All along the coast black fish arc biting well, and catches from Port Hacking to Port Stephens are almost certain. Black-fish are also on inshore fishing grounds such as Cowan, Lane Cove, Parramatta River, and Broken Bay. Marine moss found on stones in the shallows in these ...
