An Good old Dan Moriarty you have our sympathy yes at one stage of the season it looked As if the souths had gone to the pack but later on they pulled themselves together and finished with a rattle that surprised every football fan in this rectum. However your boys made their run a bit late and were beaten on averages by the ports. Now we see your team drop out of the Hunt and that too when the final premiership looked within their reach. But the percentage Rule came in and the souths had to rut away thierr togs. Cruel Luck and Only shows what a lot of Tommy rot this minor and major premiership stunt is. Why can t the league see to it that All the teams Are in the thick of the fight Uhitil the end of the season Twili Only one premiership to be fought for Well we Are sorry that the souths Are Cut of it. But we Are game to say the other clubs Are not. Goodday hallo Vic. What do you think of the souths now yes.

Of yes they beat your chaps Good of on saturday and the nor Woods feel easy Row the Blue and Whites Are out of in. Ask any re leg Barracke and you la find that what we say is quite All right. Can the sturts go top?Well,1 think so. Anyway it s not going to be for the want of trying. Yes at the commencement of the reason it looked As if your chaps would make a one horse race of it but the nor Woods and souths did not train properly and that made the sturts look better than they really Are. Anyway we wish you Luck. You have a hard Row to Hoe Don t forget. Good Day Good Day Bert. What s this Shear about you having Buckley s with your licensed bookmakers Bill Well we hear on Good authority that your own parliamentary cobbers have Birned you Down. Weare told that they will have to vote which Way the party cat pumps and the feline is vamping against your Bill. The . Has stuck on its political platform a Plank which makes for no licensed or any other Brand of bookmaker and if that is the Case it is All . With your proposed a lot of budding bookies were waiting for the passing of your Bill and if what we Hea is True there will be weeping and wailing in places where sports most do congregate. He of you Are going to give it a spin so that those who want to have a bet legally can see who Are their friends and who arc not Well Cheerio Why you re quite a stranger Harry Brown so put it right there see you have taken Over the billiard room alongside the sport office on the Kensington Road and we Hope you will Lay the foundation of a Fortune. Weil a trip to Wembley next year. Good of x of Are popular with the sporty Section of the Community so that is half the Battle c Long the Road to Success Street. Anyway we can see the lads of the Village being Well catered for by you o evenings and maybe later on we shall see you getting the Lin Drums across to play exhibition matches. That s Liq. Stuff 1 behave known f you since you were so High and later on As a to sorial artist of credit and renown in the Good old town. Carry on Good Day morning Smith s weekly Adelaide correspondent and How s things ? glad to see that you arc keeping us in the limelight. He in what Way Oil we see you have discovered that we own a Ping Pond Champion. You do us proud sure. We ourselves have been looking for a champ., but quite overlooked the Ping Pong crack Jack. We know where there is a spinning top Champ but can t Lay you on to him just yet. Why Well you see to Burden Adelaide with two champs right eff the reel would be too big a Burden for us to carry. So wait on. Also if you Are Good boy Well introduce you to a .Hap who can lick anybody on Earth or anybody Redearth Mars for instance at play Ilia noughts and crosses. Tata of or. Moto Rog we see that you Are naked about the government and City Council putting a combined Hoof Down on speeding past stationary molars.Well.,if you heard the expressions of approval from pedestrians when the Mukase came to Light perhaps Youav Ould grip the fact that you Are not the Only Pebble on the Beach. Anyway you Speed merchants have had a Good innings so 3 of should not growl so loudly. But r in you can Tell us that half the cars fleeting around Adelaide Day and night Are there for any valid purpose Well take Back a lot of the Nasty things we have Sid about ,if half those cars were driven into the City for business purposes Adelaide would be the busiest City in the Commonwealth. And about the nightly car marauders a Good Fow of them Are out on a Chicke chasing expedition. Yei you argue that the foots loggers have no right to the Highway. Go to anyway keep your Pecker up and the pedestrians own. Good Day. Continued from Page 4. He was one of the Best workers of his Side. Dawes Rove hard in the Back lines and though out marked in the air his general game was Well played. Morris Best work was done in the Ruck where Lowe and Sprigg also provided the ports i uck with a stiff opposition. Fleet was among the Best of the forwards. Though he opened Many opportunities by Well judged scouting advantage was not always taken of the chances he uttered. South 17.5 v. Sturt 13.12. The South team was As published and Jackson stood Down from Sturt and was replaced by . Dan Moriarity at Centre was the Best Man on the ground and easily held Richardson All Day. C. Daly was too Good for c. Scrutton but Hal and Scanlon proved a More even tussle. Oliver right Back for souths played a Good solid game., and kicked in Well and Gibson Organ Taylor William Sand Kandy All performed creditably. Forward a. J. Ryan was the pick of the Bunch and Vickers Caye Aistrope and Way also shone out to advantage. In the Ruck Caust was at his Best and could not be stopped and d. Thomas gave him great assistance As Shepherd. Waye and Berg also fucked Well and Aistrope and Kay scouted in Fine style. Lyne Button and Colquhoun were the Best in defence for Sturt. Although s. Scrutton full Back did not kick in too Well his general game was Well judged. Weller was the mos useful player among the forwards and Donnelly g. Scrutton and Rau also were useful in the firing line. Riley Roessler Nikolle and Whitehead performed Well in the packs but their knocking to their scouts was inaccurate. Barron and leak roved Well the former especially putting up a very solid and useful game. Torrens 16.17 a. West 7.8. Only in the first Quarter did wests after any special resistance to the minor premiers. In the second term the Torrens scored 7.7 to 3 Points and thereafter the Gam was uninteresting and one sided. The Home team though they scored better than the wests played sluggishly in the first term but pulled themselves together Well thereafter and gave Many glimpses of fast and combined play. O Grady was again their Best or Forward he was always handling the Ball and making Good use of it too. Ada splayed very Good football. In the air he assure and he played his game in a pacy and Nippy style. It. Was the Best of his Many firs class games. Brown showed considerable improvement at Centre and from appearances Hiis fully recovered from the severe Strain of the carnival. Ashby played greatly improved football and effected Many Good saves in the Back lines. Oaten on the Wing was wonderfully effective always carrying the Ball Well into the Forward lines. Pain was among the most effective of the forwards and throughout the j afternoon opened up the game with wonderful passes which created the opportunities which Marvel convert de in no Uncertain manner. Lock and Osborne were also noted on occasions for Good handling of the leather. For the wests Marti was again in continual evidence. In the air he took some Fine Marks and in replacing Lukeman at Centre after half time did much towards stopping an absolute debacle. Peters worked solidly in the Ruck where Mcgregor influence was also Felt. Huxtable and Chaplin worked hard in the Back lines but there were too Many ragged edges in the team for the work of others to be of any special effect. Norwood 19.18 v. Glenelg 8.113. Glenelg opened with Flash by after the first change of ends they were not in the game. Nor Woods could probably have kicked even a bigger score but for the fact that the Centre men and half forwards kept kicking to Bent in almost impossible positions and at times whence was overwhelmed with numbers of opponents. Bent got eight goals and had to earn every one for Beck shadowed him closely All the match. Lee handled the Ball Well but his Fine place kicking was the outstanding feature of his game. The whole of the Norwood team were too Good for their opponents games of special notice being played by Scott. Stephens Heinrichs defence ill. Whose passing was specially accurate Hepburn and Symonds Centre Lee Westle Yand Bent Forward and Schumacher roving. A nip in time saves nine. A soft drink turn eth away laugh a t a.

Of an Man named Percy Newell who was an objector Feu the Transfer of a License to a new residential tourist hotel to be at that Papular Bench. Told the Bench that he regarded an hotel As the outpost of the doors of if hell is half As hot As it is described it would so pm that a hotel could not be built in a More useful spot riders in the stand never a Day passes of Whicha race meeting is held but what one hears unfavourable criticism directed at some jockey or other by spectators. There is always some rider who incurs the displeasure of the Looker on the Man who is displeased generally being inclined to that attitude on account of his having lost his Money. Probably there is not a solitary racing enthusiast who has not. At some time or other criticise de the Riding of a horseman on the Success or otherwise of whose mount he the enthusiast had a monetary interest. It seems to be human nature and a punter s privilege to complain but one has noticed that the loudest complaints usually emanate from those who know least about the game. These riders in the stand will argue dogmatically saying that a certain jockey should have done this while another should not have done that and so on. In reality about All of a race that the general run of sightseers do see is that part which is staged under their noses. They see or know nothing of the disadvantages under which a horseman May have been placed in the Early part of a Content and will blame a boy for having his mount too far Back for instance when perhaps in the circumstances there is not another rider in the world who would have been closer. The Man who really understands the racing game is much less prone to criticise exhibitions of so called bad horsemanship. There is one fact however Fiona which the jockeys can draw a Grain of Comfort the critics usually soon forget to Weir grievances and will be ready to Morrow to cheer a horseman whom they have roundly condemned yesterday As the celebrated Banjo Paterson puts it in his poem riders of the stand there st some that ride the Robby style and bump at every stride while others sit a Long Way Back to get a longer ride. There s some that ride As sailors do with legs and arms and Teeth and some ride on tie horse s neck and some ride underneath. But All the finest horsemen out the men to beat tie band you la find amongst the crowd that ride their races in the stand. They la say he had the race in hand and lost it in the they la show How Godby came too soon and Barden came too late. They la say Chevalley lost his nerve and Regan lost his head they la Tell How one was livened up and something else was in fact the race was never run on sea or sky. Or land but what you d get it better done by weal that stake. . Where Man May throw has whole Fortune on the table and risk it on the turn up of a card that describes the modes establishment situated in a quiet Paris Street an establishment known As the Cercle Hussmann. It is the millionaires gambling club. To these men of fabulous wealth this haunt appeals because the Twenty thousand franc limit which holds in All casinos has been abolished in this select House. Day and night the play goes on. The players at times sit round the tables of the Cercle Hussmann with the Mother of Pearl counters before them wooing the god of Luck for hours on end. Rich men have lost fortunes within its doors and on the other hand poor men have in a night become Rich beyond All their dreams. One Story is told of a Young Man who one night stood watching the play and jes tingly asked a Friend to lend him a Twenty franc note. He played and in three Days time he was risking �300 in every Deal. Not yet satisfied with his winnings he decided to continue until he had made �20,000 and then to Clear out and never look at a gambling table again. His insane greed was his undoing. He risked his Money in a moment of High spirit and lost says the scottish weekly record. His riches had left him As quickly As they came. Such incidents Are conceivable a a place where the thousand franc note is simply regarded As a jest. When these men of wealth turn to the game All else is forgotten. The Fame of the Cercle Hussmann has spread to every Casino and gambling haunt in the world and every Man who has at any time played for High stakes can be found sooner or later within its rather faded Walls. A visit to the gambling rooms reveals the cosmopolitan nature of tie clientele. At a recent setting were an English Knight a cuban millionaire an american millionaire three French Kings of Industry and an egyptian Prince. Fortunes were risked in every Deal. Riders in the stand. The Rule holds Good in everything in life s Uncertain fight you la find the Winner can t go wrong the loser can t go right. Yeu ride a slashing race and lose by one and All you re banned hide like a bag of flour and win they la cheer you in the stand.
