NEW TOWN ARCHERY CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 25 November 1893

KBVT TOWN ARCHERY CLUB. A pleasing rmideavous w.n heM at the club's grounds, St. John's Parsonage, last Saturday, the occasion being the ' opening day ' of the club. The site is a very pretty one and the scene was picturesque. The club ibs an increasing list of membership, and bids fair to become quite a popular iustitu tion with the ladies of Hobirt. To Miss R. S. Harhroe is due the credit of the un doubted success of the club. The quality of the shooting was not anticipated to be a great feature of the afternoon, although later in the season good scoring is to be ex pected. Miss Fisher headed the list with a score of 50, and Miss Harbroe second with 43. Lady Dohson and Miss Dodds are to give prizes for competition.

WHAT'S IN A NAME? [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 25 November 1893

WHAT'S IN A NAME ? Ulttord of Albury objects to ' Clifford ' of Tasmania wearing that appellation, and felt so annoyed on Wednesday ereuing that he (the Border man) publicly challenged the lasmauian in the common name of Smith to stand up for three rounds. The local man declined as he was not fit. hut. no-mo,! t« sign articles next day fora glove contest for as many rounds as the Albury man liked. Accordingly the pair called at The Clipper Office ou Thursday evening, and signed articles for a match to take place at the Derwent Athletic Club on Monday evening, December 18, in which Clifford of Albury undertakes to stop Tasmanian Clifford in side eight rounds.

MINING NOTES AND TIPS [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 25 November 1893

Mining Notes and Tips [By Gnome.! Following on the expected report of Queen directors visiting the mine, comes a further fall in shares. It would seem that the popularity of certain gentlemen -was continually on the wane. The enquiry in our last issue as to amount of work done during present management in driving and sloping, etc., has attracted much comment likely to remain unsatisfied. Vague generalities are quite enough for shareholders who have fruitlessly compared the staff with the results. Too much information is bad for shareholders ! Chums having had a fling, fresh news is anxiously awaited as to further results in opening out the reef. The grand specimens of lode tin brought in from the Gormanston must be gratifying to Mr. Montgomery as nine months ago he expressed belief in the existence of good lodes in tho felspatic belt between the Commonwealth and the King River, and down to the Confidence. Local atten tion is being given to the Confidence and sections adjoining conta...

BOXING CHARLIE MURPHY DOWNS BILLY HEATHER IN THE SEVENTH ROUND AND WINS THE LIGHTWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 25 November 1893

Boxing. CHARLIE MURPHY DOWNS BILLY HEATHER IN THE SEViiNTH ROUND AND WINS THE LIGHTWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP. Charlie Murphy and Billy Heather's con test for the lightweight championship of Tasmania drew a very Urge crowd to tho Derwent Athletic Club room on Wednesday evening last, every available spot being occupied. Manager Clifford set the ball rolling by introducing two men-o-war's men, of the Koyalist, Joyce and Benne'.t, both heavy weights, who boxed four ding-dong rounds. Snowy and Jack McVilly— the latter having the advantage in weight- -sparred three rounds. ' Hallo, Snowy's copped out this time,' was the general exclamation as the young white gentleman got lauded one, two, three Snow did some very clever dodging, however, and thus escaped severe punishment. Atp.lfi Billy Heather, accompanied by his trainer, Harry Perry, aud Harry Miller and Harry Heather, put in an appearance, and after a little delay Charlie Murphy followed with his trainer, Dick Langworthy, and Jimmy Evans.

LETTERS OF S. A. TYER. No. III. TO THE HON. C.H. GRANT, M.L.C. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 25 November 1893

LETTERS OF S. A, TYCn. No. III. To the Hon. 0. H. Grant, M.L.C.' My dear sir, — It is with pleasure that I take up my pen to write a few lines to 'you. Your well-known figure and fine open coun tenance are so familiar to the pe -ple of Hobart that it in only necessary to mention your name to call up a host of plcisant recollections. Your political life has been a short one, but full of interest to the average observer. You stand conspicuous for purity of motives and for the absolute obliteration of self in all measures affecting the welfare of the people, and in your business relations for genuine self-sacrifice. Indeed you are like Cicsar's wife, above suspicion. Two or three instances will bs quite sufficient to prove this to even the most unintelligent of mortals, Before entering political life you were for a considerable time employed as manager of the Main Line Railway. The company feel ing that it would be to the direct interest of the people that the State should assume the o...

YACHTING YABBER [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 25 November 1893

Yachting Yabber. Last Saturday was the opening day of the Season 1893-4 of the Derwent Sailing Club and it was a very successful one. A large number of yachts took part in the man- oeuvres under the charge of the commodore, Mr. H. W. Knight, on board the Vesta, kindly lent by Mr. H. Denne: there were on board, also, a number of vice-presidents of the club, together with other friends. Mr. Gibson also kindly lent his steam yacht Kaa-ana for the use of the members of the club. There was a fine sea breeze blowing at the time, which brought up rather a heavy slop for the smaller yachts of the Sandy Bay Sailing Club, which took part under the leadership of their commodore, Mr. G. Clarke, who was present in his fine cutter yacht Vendetta, but everything passed off success- fully, and after a series of manoeuvres the yachts gathered round the flagship off the Esplanade, and giving three cheers for the commodore dispersed to their moorings at 4.45 p.m. The following were the principal yacht...

PALMISTRY. SQUARE FINGERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 2 December 1893

PALMISTRY. SQUARE FINGERS. Square fingers indicate positive and reasonable decisions, order, organisation, regularity, symmetry, thought. The square thumb means that a conclusion once come to is unalter able. A square forefinger shows com plete subjection to rules, laws, aud everything th:it appertains to ex terior order. ^7?A square second finger signifies, severe morality, and the dominion of principle of everything; intolerance of liberal or iudepeudant doctrines, ideas or conduct. A square third finger indicates, severe artistic tastes with but little inspiration for execution. Tln6 for mation makes a good copyist, but in original productions the sentiment of color, movement, action and anima tion, wil be wanting, rules and con ventionalities will predominate. Occasionally one fiuds a good archi tect with this shaped third finger. The little fingure if square, dis plays difficulty of understanding all that requires subtlety, promptness or acuteness of the intellectual faculties....

Black Dingo CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — The Clipper — 2 December 1893

Black Dingo [Bv J. J. Sheridan.] CHAPTER II. Smart's face displayed conflicting emo tions during this harangue, and at its cloen the mention of his father's name, coupled with the kindly manner in which his memory was lefoired to, caused Austral to reply in a more subdued and apologetic fashion than he had hitherto used : ' It'e all very nice, Mr. Quill, and I thank you for your kiudncsR, although it is 60 tinctured with national bigotry. But as president of the Society for the Protection of tho Future of Australia, I am compelled to set an example to the members thereof ; in fact little Billy Blow insisted we should each carry a twelve-foot stookwhip as a belt ; but I thought that would be a little too rural.'

Political Notes. Parliament will be formally dissolved to day, and the writs is-ued. The various candidates will now fairly settle down to the hard work of the campaign.

Tho man with the D.T. is firing second hand leaders at the astonished Ringa roomiitos in a manner which is clearly understood to signify that words are cheap.
