BOREDOM. (LIBERAL REVIEW.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 23 October 1875

B: OIR'E DI O' OM. (LIn?P L l?niEs W.) THE art of ?aking, oneself agreeablo is, unfortunately, but partially understood by a great -many people. ;The con sequence is that not a few persons, who are actuated .by the best intentions, succeed 'in making themselves dreadful bores.. It is, perhaps, more their mis fortune, than, their fault' that:they fail to perceive, in nine ocases out of ton, that they are doing so; but it is on this account none,tho, less melancholy. that their efforts create disgust in the minds of many people,.' and' that there is, therefore;'called into "existence- a pretty generpl disposition to shun their'society. Moreover, there are certain facts which render it difficult to excuse the bore and''t6' 'it' eabily under the inflictions which he puts upon one. .Itecannot be forgotten that he is, in the very nature of things, more or loss egotistical, that he is selfish, and that he is incapable of appreciating the acts and speech of his fellow-creatures."'

FITZROY PHILHARMONIC SOCIETY'S CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 23 October 1875

FITZROY PHILHARMONIC SOCIETY'S CONCERT. Our local philharmonic society gave their fourth subscription concert on Monday even- ing last, when Wallace's opera of Maritana was performed. The principal vocalists were Miss Doubleday, Miss Clarke, Miss Ada Doubleday, Messrs. J. H. Watmuff, S. W. M. Lamble, and H. Hodgson. The orchestra numbered twenty performers, and the chorus sixty voices. The society do- serves great praise for its persevering efforts to present really good music to us in a creditable form, for, overlooking an inclina- tion on the part of some of the instrument- alists to get out of tune, this was by far the most creditable performance the society has yet given. Miss Doubleday, who sustained the greatest portion of the music allotted to Maritana, sang the part in good style, the most noticeable numbers being the duet "Of Fairy wand," with Mr. Hodgson. The song " Scenes that are brightest," and the duet "Sainted Mother," with Miss Ada Doubleday. Miss Doubleday sang in a...
