THE Maffra Spectator. THURSDAY MORNING, JAN. 11, 1883. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 11 January 1883

THE THURSDAY MORNING, JAN. 11, 1883. MAEFFRA has long held its own amongst the townships of Gippaland in the way of sports and athletics of every kind, and it is high time that a move was made in the dirction of having a proper ground wherein to hold their meet ings, whether of oricket, football, or other athletic sports, We believe that there'is a reserve seo apart for such purposes on the map of the township, and could hbe utilised if properly cleared, fenced, and laid down. With such strong clubs ais we generally have, it would bean easy matter tojoin together to raise the funds towards commencing auch'a desirable object, and an applica tion, properly supported, to the shire, withbsome funds in hand as a guarantee of the genuineness of those concerned in: carrying out the improvements, would have the effect of getting the fence built by the reprsentatives of the publio welfare.

THE AUSTRALIAN COLONIES. 'At a meeting of theRoyal Colonial Society held recently at' the Grosvenor Gallery Library; Sir F. D. Bell, Agent General for New Zealand, read a paper on " The Indebtedness of the Austral asian Colonies in Relation to their 're sourcee." ,' The- Duke of' Manchester,; Chairman of the Council, who presided overa large meeting, said that the pre sent gathering marked a great epoch in the history of their society, in that it wias-the' first meeting that had been held since-Her Majesty granted a Royal charter to the institution.. It" was in teresting to know that while in 1870 the institute had only 297. Fellows, it had at the present timhe 1,789. Sir Francis Bell, in the 'course of his paper, said there had been an increase in the debt of the colonies in the last 20 years, but, the progress of Australasia had been in many ways more than equal to the growth of her debt. Of the £96,000,000 borrowed by the colonies more than £86,000,000 had been spent on railways,...

FARMERS' WIVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 15 January 1883

FARMERS' WIVES. A great deal of nonsense has been talked of late years about the. sup posed extravagance, of farmers and their families, who are in some quarters actually supposed to have brought down condign vengeance on their own heads by:their love of-luxury and ostentation. They have been charged witli driving, elegantly equipped dog-carts, riding expensive horses to hounds, and doing a variety of dreadful!deeds of this sort. Butthe chief object of attack has been the farmer's wife, who is accused of wearing,silks and satins, of teahing her daughters "accomplishments,:' and even of keeping a piano in one of the rooms of the farmhouse. According to a writer in'the " Globe," these assertions are not true- for no greater- libel was ever launched against a class of English women than. the . pretence -" that farmers' wives have become extravagant as compared with other people in the same rank 'of life. In nine out of ten farm-houses the mistress of the place if much morenlike what sh...

A MOTHER'S LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 15 January 1883

A MOTHER'S LOVE. A touchinginstanco of maternal af fection is recorded in a recent number of a medical journal by a Manchester physician. Dr. William Walterofthat city,.was sent for to attend to a young lady who was dying from the effects of severe hemorrhage, When the doctor arrived his patient was lying still and unconcious; her- face and lips were blanched; her eyes had assumed that dull and lifeless appearance which only death, or its nearest approach, can pro duce. Respiration was scarcely per ceivable,. and the pulse could only at intervals be felt.. Dr. Walter, whose experience of such cases is great, knew at once that thero was only one chance for her, viz., tranafusaeion of blood from the arm of a healthy person totlhe blanched limb of the moribund. . The lady's husband cheerfully consented to give his blood to save his wife, but the mother would not hear of it. Although she knew the risk attending the opera tion she begged to be the donor.

EUROPEAN TELEGRAMS. LoNnoN, January 11.

A TOUCHING INCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 15 January 1883

A TOUCHING INCIDENT. Thero is one touching incident iii the life of William Wirt. In his younger days he was a victim to tihe passion for intoxicating. drinks.. Aflianced to a beautiful and accomplished young woman, he had broken repeated pledges and amendments, and she, after patiently and kindly enduring his dis. graceful habit, at length dismissed liim: deeming him incorrigible. Their next meeting after the dismissal was in a public street in the city of Richmond. William Wirt lay drunk and asleep on the sidewalk ona a hot summer's day, the rays of the sun pouring down on his uncovered head, and the flies crawl ing over his swollen features. As the young lady approached him in her walk her attention was attracted by a spectacle, strango to her eyes, but alas I so common to others who knew the victim as to excite little remarlk. She did not at first recognise the sleeper, and was about topiasten~on, when she was led by one of those impulses which form the turning-points in human l...
