PRAHRAN ANNUAL RACES. FIRST DAY.—FRIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph, St Kilda, Prahran and South Yarra Guardian — 5 January 1867

PRAHAN ANNUAL RACES FIRST DAY.—FRIDAY. These races took place in Fawkner Park yesterday afternoon, and although the horses may not be quite so well bred as those that contend for some of the largr stakes; yet we have rarely seen better racing at any of the great events in the colony. The stewards were Messrs. Gunn, Wartman, Sidey, Vail (treasurer), Ashton, Davies, Massey, and Jupp (secretary) Mr. G. Gunn acted as   judge, and Mr. Jupp as starter, but Mr. Vail was prevented from carrying out the duties of clerk of the course through an unfor- tunate fall from his horse. We are glad to say, however, that beyond being shaken he did not sustain any serious injury. The day was most pleasant the heat being considerably less than it had been for the two previous days, which, together with the admirable management of the stewards, the good con- dition of the ground, and the Superior des- cription of the racing combined to make this one of the most enjoyable afternoons &...

BOWLING. MSELBOinNE OUU V. ST. .KILDA. The first grand, inter-club bowling match of the season came off on the green of the St. Kilda 'Club, on Saturday ilast, sixteen players selected from the Melbourne Club having accepted n challenge 'from their neigh biur of St. Kilda, 'to play a like numiber of the latter club a 'friendly match of two hours. The jack was thirown at half-past three. Tlib igh wipd from the bay, although most refreshing, ýtomewhat ,interfered with the " bias,' of tse bowls, and served not infre quently as ap ,pology for bad play. 'The burgesses of St. Kilda ought to be proud of their green, which is greatly 'improved since last year, and as a resort for healthful exer cise ought to meet with every encouragement, -perhaps something more than has yet been accorded. The scoring in the different rinks was as follows:-In No. 1 Rini, St. Kilda was represented by Messrs. W. Freer, Jas. Turner, E. Bradshaw, and F.

SPOTS ON LIFE'S SUN. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph, St Kilda, Prahran and South Yarra Guardian — 12 January 1867

SPOTS ON LIFE'S SUN. By GEOROa MANVLLE FeeNN. (mRox TruE LONDON EVENING IrARa.) In educating myself a bit, it seems to me like getting up a high mountain; and after going on at it for years and years, I've come to the idea that there never is any getting up atop, for no sooner do I get up one place than there's another; and so it is always the same, anti you've never done. It's being thickheaded, I suppose, but somehow or another I can't get to understand lots of things, and I know I never shall.-. Now just look here, suppose I, as a working man, go into my neighbour Frank Brown's garden cuts his cabbages, digs up his potatoes, and takes 'em home-" annexes" 'em, you kuocv; then larrups 'rank till he's obliged to cut and run; when I take a werry loving fancy to all his furniture, clothes, and chaney, and moves 'em into my premises. "Don't do that," says his wife. " Tuere, hold your tongue," I says; " I'm 'annexing' 'em; and you may be off after your husband;" and. then I turns her ou...
