THE SPRINKLING OF THE KID. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 31 January 1888

THE SPRINKLING OF THE KID. The present Bishop of Melbourne, Dr. Gee, tells how he, by muscular Christianity, made converts of some bargees while he was rector of Bloomsbury. ' They were notorious,' says the .BishOD, ror their dirty, in temperate habits. One day a bargee called at the parsonage, and told me that ' Jim the Slogger' wanted me to call and 'sprinkle his kid,' by which he meant to baptize the baby. I call ed accordingly at Jim's house at the lime appointed— a hovel, by the way, with but one room, one door, and, one small window. The moment I was fairly inside, Jem locked the door, and put the key in his pocket, inquir ing at the same time: ' Be you t he- parson come to sprinkle my kid ?' 'I am the clergyman of the parish, and I have come to baptize your child,' I replied. ' Yer cau't sprinkle that kid till you and me have had a round, par son,' said Jim the Slogger.

Vasse Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 7 February 1888

Vasse Notes. (From our Correspondent.) In spite of the disheartening speech at the opening' of Council in which Mis Excellency saw a . very cloudy horizon, and in spite of an in'doubted temporary stagnation in trade, busi ness men in looking forward to the future evidently see very little cause for despondency. Occasional lulls in trade are universal and are .not con fined to Western Australia. Through j.ut the whole civilised world the past year has been one of depression, but Western Australia has a firuv basis, !ind will right herself: Instead of leaving curtailment until a time of de pression arrived and then coming down with one fell swoop, depart mental expenditure ought to have been looked into long ere this and the colony could have been saved ?much and at the same time not have been so great a hardship on those whose services have now to be dispensed with. As 1 wrote last week 1 consider it an unwise policy to sweep out of the service old and tried men in the police departm...

A HUNDRED TO ONE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 7 February 1888

A HUNDRED TO ONE. ' Gratitude J Whoever believed in such a tiling after five-and-twenty ? It's a word that ought to be struck out of the dictionary.' It was an old friend of mine who one day uttered this very severe judg ment upon humanity, while we were puffing our cigars after a very good dinner. ' You go a little beyond the mark, major,' I said, ' though our good deeds usually turn up blanks — in this world at least — a prize sometimes very unexpectedly rewards us.' ' Did you ever get one ?' he asked, with a grim smile. ' I did once ; a very big one,' I re plied. ' You were lucky,' he grunted. ' I'll tell you all about it,' I said ; *' it is as curious an incident as you ?ever came across, and what renders it particularly interesting is that it is quite true. You know when I was a youngster I was & bit of a Turfite. Then my regiment was ordered off to India, and for several years I had to eontent myself with reading the old sporting news in the English news papers as they...

TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. BRITISH & FOREIGN London, February 9. The present European situation causes feelings of uneasiness notwith standing the utterances of the Ger man Chancellor. It is rumoured that Spain, Rouman ia, and probably Sweden will be ad mitted to the Central Alliance. Advices from Rome report an agi tafed feeling from the belief that the Italian Government is apprehensive of war. It is expected that orders will be given for the withdrawal 0$ the expeditionary force-from Masso wah, in consequence of the European outlook. The Russian Government reseivt the proposal of the Sultan to appoint Ki a?.im Bey, Commissioner of Sofoia, and still insist on an appointment of a Commissioner of their own1,- p'emli'iTg the supersession of Prince Ferdlinasud by another ruler.

He said the ground was being cut up by horses and carts going right across the centre and it would soon not be fit for any sports if they were not stopped. Jt would cost between £15 and £20, and every Municipal Council was empow ered to improve the recreation ground prodded for them. Cr. Wood row seconded the resolu tion, saying that he thought sawn posts and rails would look better than split ones, and the cost would not be much more. It would look better and if they had a substantial fence it ...
