Like a Sausage. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 27 July 1899

Like a Sausage. Some bime ago the writer was sitting at home with the rest of the family, enjoying a book in front of a blazing fire, when his sister entered with a little dog under her arm. ' What ho 1' said a younger brother ; ' here comes a freak from Barnum's 1' ' How dare you ? said his sister. ( He's a nice libble fellow. I've just bought him for ten shillings from a man up the street ; but he told me bhab he iB nob a bhoroughbred dog. The nexb thing is to find a name for him.' The witty youngster didn't give the others any chance, for he cried out : ' Let's call him ' Sausage.' ' 'Ridiculous.!' said the owner. 'How can you call him ' Sausage t' There is no sense or meaning to the name.' 1 Oh, yes, there is,' said her brother.' 'You said he was a half-bred dog. Well, what is a sausage ? — nothing but half-bre(a)d.' Needless to say we all enjoyed the joke, and up to the present day the terrier ia stilhcalled ' Sausage.' ^

WELLINGTON v. DUBBO. Filled with confidence after their morning * victory, and with the addition of four or five fresh men to their team, Dubbo teckled the Wellington club at 3 p.m. They had reckoned with out their host however, when they thought they cduld hold their own, as they were completely out classed from first to last, Wellington winning by 15 points to nil — composed of 5 tries, from whioli no goals wero kioitea. it is noc too mucn to say that the local team have never played a better game, and in conversation with the managor of tho losing side, after the contest, the lattor 'expressed it as his opinion that Wellington had as fine a side as any out of Sydney, and could not understand how they had gone down by the Waratalis. We did not tell him that our boys on that occasion entered tho field already beaten, but being loyal Wollingtonites hinted that wo ha*! a very ' reak team on that day.

Football. The Dubbo footballers, consisting of a team of 20' players, visited Wellington on Saturday, and played Burroll Creek in the morning and Wellington in the afternoon. They were a pretty strong com bination, and came down very confident of their ability to pull off tho ' double.' As events proved thev onlv eot ' a lee in.' an no more, winnina the morning matoh by 11 points to 3, but going down heavily in the afternoon, The day was beautifully fine, but slightly warm far football; the ground was hard and dry, but there was scarcely any wind. We have spoken before of tho encroachment of tho public on the playing area, and must empasize what we have already said. The way in which the on lookers got in the wayof the contestants on Saturday, especially in the afternoon, was little short of disgraceful, and the game had to be stopped time and again to enablo the umpire to clear the line.
