NEW SOUTH WALES DRIVING PARK CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 11 January 1886
NEW SOUTH WALES DRIVING PARK CLUB. On Saturday afternoon the above society held their third meeting under very favour able circumstances, there being about 3000 people present, and the racing generally good. Full evidence was shown that the sport is increasing in public favour. The ninagement wais as good under the con ditions as anyone could expect. The want of sufficient accommodation for the officials was severely felt. Many of the trotters were caparisoned in the orthodox nAmerican style-with boots, leg pro tectors, caps for preventing speedy cutting, &c. Before we saw the horses in their trotting gear, we thoughtthe many illustrations of American trottinghorses exhibited were caricatures as far asthe appurtenances were concerned; but we can now inform our many Colonial friends, who have never seen an American trotter, that the pictures in question are true, and not at all exaggerated. The hero of the meeting was a Colonial-bred horse, named Native Cat. He is a large, di...

"Yes, Job suffered some," said a melan choly Long Island farmer, "but he never knew what it was to have his team run away and kill his wife right in the busy season, when hired gals want three dollars a week."

A DUEL ON THE TIGHT ROPE. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 11 January 1886
A DUEL ON? THE TIGHT ROPE. The taste for rope-dancing, which the celebrated Madame Voilanto brought into Sfashion in the early part of the last cen tury, flourished nowhere so much and long .os in Dublin, where the agile lady estab lished herself and opened a theatre, the S.attractions of which for a timej superseded every other place of public amusement. Madame Voilante was the Blondin of her day, but more of an artist and less of an acrobat. She treated the public to scenic etrects they had never -witnessed before; she trained some notable actresses, among Whiom was Peg Woffllington, and carried rope dancing to so high a pitch that the bearese onds of Dublin talked of and attended to nothing else for some years. Long after the days of her management had gone by, and her theatre passed into other hands and uses (it is said to have become a Methodist chapel), the relish for this spacies of' peiformance was strong enough in the public mind to produce a kind of civil war regarding the...
GOOD NEWS FOR AUSTRALIAN WINE-GROWERS. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 11 January 1886
GOOD NEWS FOR AUSTRALIAN WINE-GROWERS. Read in the light afforded by the past negotiations between Groat Britain and Spain, the news imparted by a Reuter's telegram in another column, to the effect that the protocol of a commercial treaty has at last been signed by the two Governments, may be looked upon as having special interest for Australia. There has been a long agitation on the part of Spanish wino merchants to get their wines admitted into England at -tho same rate of duty as that charged upon French wines, and the Spanish Government has resented very warmly the fact that the Spanish wines have, as" a rule, been liable to the higher duty of 2s. Gd. per gallon, while the French wines have been let in at Is. per gallon. The truth was that the Spanish wines were charged at a higher rate simply because they contained more alcohol thanthoso of France. Almost all the French wines are of less alcholic strength than 26 degrees, and almost all the wines of Spain are over that strength...

LESLIE DACRES' VOW. "Papa dearest, may I invite a great friend of mine to come and stay with- us for a few days " 'pleaded pretty Vera Dacres, leaning caressingly over her father's ohair, whilst she nervously played with his doi brown hair. Leslie bacre's brow clouded, and he was about to utter a peremptory refusal, when Vera, not waiting for his answer, hastily continued. "I know papa dear, since mother's death you have disliked 'Iadies' society, and I wouldn't think of asking you to let Coralie Laacelles come here, only she is so utterly different from 'other girls. In fact, she is not a girl at all, being 25 last week."
