THE OBJECTS OF A LITERARY SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 24 April 1896
THE OBJECTS OF A LITERARY SOCIETY.. BY TIIE RIeV. F. H. Glenes. The following paper was read before a meeting of St. Mary's Church of England Literary Society on Friday, April 10th, at St. Mary's Schoolroom, and will be discussed at the next meeting on May 8th: BODILY exercise, says the sacred writer, profiteth a little. It is now 1,900 years since he said so ; but the necessity for bodily exercise is still patent to all who have to do with training and educating now-a-days-perhaps more patent than ever it was, and becoming more so every day. In these days of railways, fast steamers, and telegraphs, with their con comitant effects, nervous excitement, prostration, and insomnia, the ancient proverb " mens sana in corpore sane," has more applicability than, probably, it ever had before. But, after all, itis not the mind that we require to cultivate for the sake of the body, but the body for the sake of the mind:. In the present condition of the human race, mind takes precedence over m...

TIE NORTH MEl.IOURNE SCAVENG mao CoaernACT.-A rumor has gained currency in the town recently, that the contractor for the scavenging for the local Council neglected to make the statutory declaration as he is supposed to do once a month, to the effect that he is observing the conditions of the minimum wage doctrine, and he has also been charged with housing one of his men, thereby actig as nlandlord-to-one of his employes, which is in direct con travention of the terms of his contract. We have made careful inquiries into the truth of these allegations, and have been assured by a competent authority, and one who is in a position that necessitates an intimate knowledge of the whole matter, that the above-mentioned report is inaccurate, and based on a want of knowledge of the real facts.

Before starting, Harry Fuhrhop having had a vision that some one was going to do the hat trick, purchased a new hat from C. McMaster, but as it measured 7j, it was found his was the only head to fill it, so later on we all willingly subscribed a new hat for George Stewart, whosubsequently bowled three of the ruralistics in as many con secutive balls. We lft the N.-M. Town Hall at 1.30, arnd after calling at one or two places, we struck direct for Greensborough through Heidelberg, having in the drag nine players and Fred.

A LORRY ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 1 May 1896
A Loonr AcctnDENT.-A rather sen sational accident happened at the Metro politan _Heot Market, on Monday last. A lorry and pair of horses belonging to Mrs. Mark Evans, were standing outside the Blackwood-street entrance to the market when the hlorses took fright, and bolted round the corner into Oourtney otreet, until they reached the entrance there. One of the horses then tripped over the culvert, whilst the other cot tinued its mad course, dragging its un fortunate companion along the kerbstone for fully 50 yards, until it collided with a telegraph pole, the force of which broke the harness and freed the horses from the lorry. The uninjured animal was immediately seized by a Mr. Murphy who was passing by. On examination, the other horse was found to be in a ter ribly mutilated condition. A lady and two pli'ldrtq in g buggy jqst moved out of the way of the tenq less than a minutn previously.

They only lost one Pennant match during the competition, that being a-aiiiskt. ~outh 1Meliborne, which, no doubt, is fresh in the minds of nur readers-owing to several peculiar decisions. Last Saturday when North started play they had two wickets down for 51 runs, but thanks to the splendid batting of Campbell 64 (not out), ably assisted by Carlton 21, Launder 14, Rundle 18, Ming 13, Kinnane 11, and Jas. Howlett 10, the total was brought op to 180, making the formidable score of 375 runs for the two innings. The University made 81 runs in their first innings, which left them 295 runs to get to win. In their second attempt they failed ignominously, only scoring 1c the bowling of Garland (4 for 15) and Saunders (3 for 12) being too good North thus winning by 258 runs.
