COMMENTS ON EVENTS. * --0-- "The birds whose music fills the air, Do'chirp and chatter hoodlessly.'. -Axox. A friend' of mineo has been weak enough. to purchase a book containing twenty tickets 'n a certain church act-union. How to clear this rash outlay he has been much puzzled, and many devices have vainly been tried by him to come out of the transaction. Ho is a smart follow though, and has at last hit upon a plan that so far has been successful beyond' his most san guine expectations The primary cost of the tickets was a shilling each, and he has now got up a sort of "sub" art union and intends raffling the' lot at 2s apiece. He has already enlisted some ten members, so that whatever additional tickets hlie may sell will be a source of profit by way of commission. I congratulated him warmly upon the success of his scheme, anod advised him to start an art-union agency office.. He seemed, with his usual acumen, to view this cettpercent proposal most favor ably.

NORTH GIPPSLAND AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY'S SPRING SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 30 November 1882

NORTH GIPPSLAND AGRICUL TURAL SOCIETY'S SPRING SHOW.   For this show, which has been, without exception, the most successful that the society has held, the weather was all that could have been wished, for from when the first streaks of dawn were visible until late, nothing appeared to make the pleasure-seeker. fear his excursion. It is to this, in an great measure no doubt, that the success in minor things was due.

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE   CONCERT. A concert in aid of the funds of the above institute was held at the Shire Hall last night. The Sale Amateur Christy Minstrels kindly consented to place their services at the disposal of the committee, and the manner in which they discharged their honorary obliga tion is certainly deserving of the high est praise. The programme commenced with an overture and opening chorus by the company, followed by a song: from Mr. Drakeford, " Come where my love lies Dreaming," which received a well merited round of applause. Mr. Tindall followed with that pretty little min strel song " Sunshine." This gentle man possesses a rich melodious voice and the pathetic strains of the song were most touchingly rendered. Mr. Drakeford then sang " Chiming Bells," followed by a comic song from Mr. Clues entitled "Campton Races" which set the audience in roars of laughter. With admirable taste Mr. Reid then sang " Roses underneath the Snow." The well-known Christy...

MELBOURNE. (PnoP ona own conmIRSPONDEar.) Wednesday. Of.course you have ore this heard all about the railway accident on the Hawthorn line, attended with serious injury to a number of persons, as well, unfortunately, as loss of life. People are beginning to grow fearful of 'travel ling on thie suburban lines at all, for as well as the number of terrible accidents which have recently occurred on these lines, accidents and delays are con tinually occurring which point strongly to the conclusion that there is gross mismanagement somewhere.

In the Legisla tive Council on Tuesday, Mr Sargood, in drawing attention to this matter, suggested that the Government should obtain the services of a competent trafle manager from England or America.

The visitor, upon entering, must have been pleased with the joyous faces he beheld, each one striving to contribute their meed to the general satisfaction. As for the comes tibles nothing better could be desired, and the ladies of Stratford deserve every praise for their success in catering for the creature comforts of their guests.
