PERIL IN THE CIRCUS RING. (NEW YORK SUN.) [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 7 July 1888

` 1PERIL IN 'THS . IOUSUU RI NG. (NcW YORK e8it.) One of the most lively and picturesque features in a alrous performanoe is "leaping, by the entire company," particularly in an Simmense show like Barnum and Bailey's, I where it is participated in by forty or fifty skilled performers. Running down a long 5 I(nolined planoe, and taking a start off the epringboard, they, one by one, in rapid succession, dart high in air and far away to land on the thick mattress, where one or two sturdy fellows stand braced to catch them. Over horses they fly, then over camels and elephants, finally over a pyramid of men upon the elephants'a backs. Is is marvellous what prodigious leaps they make and so swiftly do they follow each other that when they get well going the effect is presented of a fountain actively spouting a flood oftwisting, writhing, darting bodies and lege, brilliant in all the colours of the rainbow. Two, three, or four men seem to 1 be in the air at once, and each turns one or r tw...

A SAGACIOUS MULE, I was one of the first of the hunters and trappers who made headquartere at Fort Laramie, and as that post was established fally thirty years ago, you can rest assured that the man who went out by himself had to run the gauntlet of danger every hour in the twenty-four. The spirit of all the Indian tribes bas beeoon broken during the last decade, but twenty-five years age eacah Western tribe was at its beat, and no man was looked upon as a warrior onless he could shake the scalp of a I white man In the face of his challenger. You couldn't gel chief or warrior to believe that there were over 10,000 white people in the whole United Slates, or that white troops enough could be raised to defeat one mingle tribe in a fair fight. The red man flattered himself that he was just the sharpest, cutest, and bravest thing on foot, and so be cnt-witted by a while mon was to make him an object of contempt.

NOTES ON DRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 14 July 1888

NOTES ON DRESS, There is no batter oriterlon of a woman's taste than the selection of trimmings for her gown. To lavish a decoration simply because it is in fashion upon a material whioh in itself is sufficiently rich is to pro. olaim to the world one's Ignorance of the art of dress, while a simple braid trimming upon a wool gown bears a caohet of elegance that Is never attained by a flimsy silk preten tiously garnished with cotton velvet. Not that all velvets must be of the finest qualty, but in trimming, as well as in fabrics, one should select a quality that will wear well that will endure re.modelling, and that will not, even in its latter days, hint of cheap shabbiness. Velvet, sometimes alone and sometimes framed in fur or overlaid with braid, occu pies a conspioncuous position amongst the garnltures of the season. A strong point no its favour is that it can be adapted to the style of the wearer-for a stout woman it is disposed in long flat applications, while for her slender ...

THE CHANCES OF BEING HIT IN BATTLE, i writeir in `tiae "Century," from the statietics of the Amerloanscivil War, endea yours to estimate the individual chances of being hit in battle :-" The light artillery service," be writes, "loot during the war 1,817 men killed and mortally woundod, of whom 116 were officers. Their smaller losses only emphasiso the fact .that it is a valuable arm of the service in its capability of inflicting so much more lose than it receives. And yet the artillery are largely 'eaponsible for the oft.quoted remark that ' It takes a man's weight in lead to kill him.' This old saw has always been considered as needing more or less latitude, but, on the contrary, it expresses an absolute truth, devoid of exaggeration. As regards tihe battles of modern warfare, it le a very fair way of stating the relative weight of metal thrown and men killed. The figures per taining to this subject are attainable and make the mgtter very plain. Toboe just, we will pass by eauch a...

AUSTRALIAN FEDERATION. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader — 14 July 1888

AUSTRALIAN FEDERAT1ION. The question of Australian Federation is certainly, it it cannot be called a "burning question," ;at all events one of the must prominent topics of the day. Its importance is on all aides acknowledged, but there are many difficulties in the way of its achievement which will have to be removed before it can be brought abshout. In no small degree local jealousies affect the question, and prevent a calm dispassionate discussiou of it. Then againthbe tariffs of the whole of the colonies would have to be assimilated. Toe seat of Government would have to be fixed satie factorily, and that would not easily be decided upon. That Australia will in the future be federated there can be no doubt, in fact it will become a necessity of the develop ment of itho colonies, which is likely as time progresses to be oven more rapid than it has in the past It has been estimated that in a cantury hence there will be in Australia a population of 50 millions I Thas there is abunoano...

ENGLAND'S DANGER FROM FR'ANEOI AND RUSSIA. The following is from the "Universel Review," which has just appeared.

" The writer supports the view that there Is a real danger of England havina to fight Russia and France together :-" At the moment of the Tamatave infodents-the violent and irritating conduct of Admiral Pierre, and the arrest and long detention of Mr. Shaw upon a monstrous and ridiculous charge-England and France were very near to war. Had the telegraph been open to Tamatave, so that each power had had its capital deluged with Rensational exaggeratione of the alres-dy dangerous facts, war would probably have broken out. The slightest increase of Admiral Pierre's irritability would also, in itself, have been sufficient to bring about a war by causing the sinking of a Queen's ship, whose captain was in the right and could not hb disavowed, at a moment when French feelin...
