INTERNAL FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 24 February 1887

INTERNAL FiRE. i 1 A few years ago one of the most impor tant coal mines in N.S.W. caught fj It started slowly, but soon obtained suelihead way that it spread through the greater por tion of the entire mine. To flood it with water would extinguish tho fire but weil nigh ruin the mine ; and still tho Saas con tinued to increase. At that iunoiure a I young man stepped forward and suggested that all the cntrancos and vent-hdos of the mine be covered and seouredj thus shutting off the supply of air. His alvice was followed, and the flames were flially subdued. I To compare the oondition of thistnine with many phases of the human sjieui, is most natural and appropriate. '?ire in the blood ' is not a mere expres&u ; it is a most serious fact. HoW it originates it may be impossible to jay, but that it burn6 and rages with an In creasing fury, the one who is its viotimjoiiy too painfully knows. The blood is thejlifi. It is designed by nature to purifj, strengthen, and sustain the sy...

Our Correspondent's Tips. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 3 March 1887

Oar, Correspondent's Tips. As to the probabilities of success in tlie Australian Cup race, Nelson, Grace Dar ling, Arsenal, Trident, All Gold, Lochiel, Satyr, Phaon, nnd Ocean are receiving good support, and more than one of the knowing ones pin their faitli to Grace Darling. Arsenal is well, but I do not like liim, and greatly prefer Nelson, Trident, Lochiel or Ocean, and had the ground kept heavy, I should have gone for the last named with a big plump, if assured of a start. Thore is, however, every prospect of beautiful weather, nnd the course is now in good going order, so I expect to see the top woights come in. An owner of horses and maker of a book said to me this morning that he could not name it in four trios, but thinks when the numbers go up it should be something like Kelson or/Trident, with Lochiel, Arsenal, and Ocean to fight it out for third place, but Ocean may get even nearer.

Our hero was born at Hathurst, N.S.W., in 1803, and in his youth he learned all his cricket in his native town, playing for tlie Bathurst C.C., of which-he was the mainstay. The first we hoar of his extraordinary merit was in the year 1881, in which year Shaw's team visited the colony, and played iu Bathurst.
