TOM MALONE AND THE CHAMPIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 3 March 1887
TOM KIALONE AND THE CHAMPIONS. Tom Mnlone wns himself on Monday at Botany, and did not run so badly in the quarter. At least he says he has done no training since the Samuels catastrophe, and if this is so he ran extraordinarily well. I consider that on Monday he would have made -U'sec. look very awk ward, and this is something that Myers wnnld Tint, nttomnt out of condition. Lately Malono has been very unfortunate, and he always has some excuse. Since running Samuels the Irishman says he has suffered considerably from the old complaint, Bciatica. It was only on tho solicitations of hiB friends that he did not forfeit to the Queensland aboriginal, for at the time he ran him he was totally unfit, through the attack of sciatica which was iu its begin ning. Tom says it is a family complaint, and comes periodically. Now, how ever, ho says it will not interfere with him for some time, and lie in tends to have another shot at both Hutcliens and Samuels. ' I have a terrible ambition,' says...

A New Melbourne Boxing Hall. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 3 March 1887
A New Melbourne Boxing Hall. Hons. Victor, a French athlete, who has been in Melbourne for a long time, on Saturday night next is to open a new gymnasium in Melbourne, capable of seat ing some GOO people, and to, in that city, by weekly entertainments, fill tho place horo occupied, by tlie genial Foley. For some considerable time, boxing in tue capital of the sister colony has been associated with everything that is rowdy and objectionable. If Monsieur is able to elevate tho 'noble art' in that ^ city above its- present deploruble surroundings, ho will be entitled to a genuine and full support, and no doubt will get it. In tlie past I have known Victor more by reason of tho great things he wns goTng to do than by anything he over accomplished, and although ho dresses very nice and is exceedingly polite, he lias never done any thing in Australia to entitle him to the name of a good athlete. I re member when Miller gave an exhibition lioro in wrestling, and for the want of a better ma...

COURSING. THE ENGLISH WATERLOO CUP WINNERS. It is rather strange that the two dividers of this year's Waterloo cup are both by tho same dog. Hersohel, who was the favourite, is the property of Mr. T. D. Hornby, a very old courser, aud widely known ill Englpnd as tho chairman of the Mersey Dock Board of Liverpool. Greater Scot is the property ftf Mr. li. I'. Gladstone, a merchant of Liverpool, aud a nephew of the ' grand old man.' Jlerschel is a red dog, whelped iu April, 1885, and he is by the celebrated sire Macpherson, woi-d of whose death was only received a month or more ago, from Stargazing II., by Canute.

EXTRAORDIMARY POISONING OF CATTLE. Arsenicated Grass. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 3 March 1887
extraosdinaby poisoning I I OP CATTLE. I Arsonicabed Grass. At Clunes, where cattk- llrtVt! been dyiug , all over tho district in alarming .-iuantities, a most extraordinary di»coWtfy has been | made. From a report mado by the local health inspector, a Ser^eaut NcMri,- it appears that the cause of deatV is .fi'hee able to tho fumes arising from the b if fil ing of pyrites. On analysis oi ' uie of ono of tho victims immediately alter death , it disclosed that there was tracings ot arsenic in the intestines. It is surmised that the funics have deposited the deadly arsenic on tho pasture, and by degrees a Bufllciont amount of tho poison is taken to cause death. If this conjecture is truo the inhabitants of tho district who drink rain water should likewise suffer. The subject is boing investigated and the truth of this peculiar discovery will soon bo known. We are promised a visit by Mr. James Wyllie, the champion draught .player ot the world. It is said that he will viBit ua shortly.
