''ADRIAN'S RELEASE. CHAPTER XI. ' HEM1 ! OR WE ARE LOST.' 'Well, here we are near Delhi, Norreys. This is the Jumna river, which, flows through the city. A fine country, isn't it.' ' Everything ia so new and strange to me, Owen, that I seem to live in a state of perpetual admir ation.

ECHOES OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 25 January 1894

ECHOES OP SPORT. Pleasure seekers are offered a long array of amusements at which to while away what I hope will be the bright hours of what should be the most popular holiday observed in Australia. There are races, excursions, athletic sports, cheap fares and theatricals, and after all it would seem that times are scarcely so bad as they are painted, else »»*?* ^vujho (ilo utriuLujiucu lu uuuc ia a way cast lull care to the winds whilst they enjoy themselves without & thought for the morrow and with an imprecation for the expense. Locally the great attraction will be the meeting of the Northern Jockey Club at Rutherford, where there shouldbe excellent sport if the weather keeps up, but this is a consummation I have several very moody doubts about, for rain and the old club's reunions have gone hand in hand as it were so long in the past that they appear almost inseparable now. The fields do not promise to be large either to-morrow or Saturday, but I have often seen better f...

NEWCASTLE. Of course the holiday to-morrow occupies the attention of the people, and everyone seems to be making up his or her mind where they shall go to spend the day. The same advantages are offered as usual. The Lake is made attractive by steamer excursions, and steamers are also to proceed up the river. The Eisteddfod will, however, be the most attractive, as friends of the competitors will be anxiously awaiting the decisions of the judges. The preliminary examinations takes place to-day. A combined juvenile choir, which will number between 600 and 700 children, will take part. The young men, Gordon and Campbell, who had been arrested on charges of uttering forged cheques, were before the court yesterday. Gordon was com mitted for trial on five charges and Campbell on four. The usual quarterly meeting of the District Lodge of Good Templars will be held on Saturday, February 3, in the Islington Mechanics' Institute.
