JOHN BRIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 23 August 1884
JOHN BRIGHT. As an orator John Bright is without an equal in the House of Commons, and probably in the civilised world. Like Gladstone, he has a mellow and melodious voice and inexhaus tible store of words. Unlike Gladstone, he is neither verbose nor parenthetical. His subject matter rolls on clear, and broad, and deep, with the flowing volume of a mighty stream in its last course towards the sea.

THE ROBERTSON RAILWAY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BOWRAL FREE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 23 August 1884
THE ROBERTSON RAILWAY, TO -TillS 'EDITOR' OF TIIE BOWIUL FUEE PRESS. I notice in the Ifowml Jptc-e ft-ess. of tho lGth instant that a deputation waited upon tho Hon. G.'Ii. Dibbs in reference to n mil way from Bowral to Kobortson, and that Mr. Dibbs oflle'red to make some inquiries, and, amongst others, asked-—Did the depu tation think' that the residents of the dis trict through wliioh tho railway would pass wero preparod to give the land necessary for the railway free of; cost to the govern ment, who would fence tho road on both sides? I am myself owner and oooupier of land through which, the lino of railway is sur veyed for about a mile in length, and I for my part shall positively object to such a condition. I would much rather the rail way did not come through my land, for I should consider it an injury rather than a benefit, not for the present, but for all time., X would beg to refer the parties to the con sideration of the injury reoently done to oc cupiers of laud on, the J...
HOMŒOPATHY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOCIAL REFORMER [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 23 August 1884
HOMCEOPATHY. TO THE EDITOR OP THE SOOIAIi REFORMER Sir,—I notice in your last issue a letter from "A Son of Temperance," in which the results of allopathic treatment in connection with a section of the Temperance Beuefit Societies of the colony are severely criticised And this caustic criticism is followed, up by a pertinent reference to the annual report of the London General Provident Company, which stateB that after the strictest inves tigation . the efficiency of the liomeepathic over the allopathic treatment had been in dubitably demonstrated,. and that the com pany were prepared to assure persons treated by the homoopathio system at a specially reduced rate of premium. Now, without travelling bo far as London for proof, allow me to point out that Dr. B. Fawoett* of Ultimo, Sydney, a well-known homoiopatbic practitioner^ has, during his medical career, had charge of no loss than 15 Benefit So cieties, comprising in all some.1,080 mem bers.

SOMETHING LIKE WIVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 23 August 1884
SOMETHING LIKE WIVES, Nearly all the recent Premiers of England Lave onjoyed the advantage of having had wives of great devotion and considerable ability, to whose care and tender sympathy in their ambition thoy have been largely in debted. The devotion of tho Countess of Russell, who, is still living, and tbo Countess of Beaoonsfiold,. had something of romance. I Mrs. Gladstone, who is nearly tho same age as the Premier, accompanies her husband, aadidltady Beaconsfiold, everywhere, and frequently remains iu tho ladies' gallery to the close of tho night's sitting. Lord Pul raerstoUi more than, perhaps, any other first Minister, was indebted for his position and its maintenance to his wife, wha was physically and mentally a remarkable woman.
SPURGEON. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 23 August 1884
SrORGEQN. Mb. SruiiGEON, some 25 yoors ago, obtained the money with which to build the Metropo litan Tabernaolo. Plana for tho eroction of the proposed structure wore received by a building committoo of 21, tho ostimates for the one accepted boing £20,000. Having only some £6000 in hand tho committee de ! murred to going on, so Mr. Spurgoon sug J gasted that half the number should retire, and 12 accordingly did so. Shortly after, preaching in the surburbs, he was the guest of a gontloman who had heard of his pro ject, and who in tho courso of convocation said, " I will givo you £50 towards it, and if you are really hard up I will givo you another £50." Mr. Spurgoon told him he was in of want £20,000; whorenpon ho re plied, " Well, if you want it, you shall huvo it." Astonished at his generous offer, Mr. Spurgoon gratefully acoepted it, and the noxt day was in possession of tho money, and gave bonds for its repayment. He at onoe called his building committeo of 12 to gether, and agai...
BONEDUST AS A MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 23 August 1884
BQNEDUST AS A MANURE. It is well enough known that bone, when ground fine, makes one of the best and cheapest manures, especially on lands long in use. High price interferes with its general use. In a limited way, the small farmer has the means within his reaoh of reduoing several barrels of bone to> a fine powder every year. A solution of potash will re duce bone to> a fine condition, and make it available for plant food. Most farmers still use wood for fuel, and the ashes from the fifteen or . twenty cords used in a year, if saved, would reduce all the bones ordinarily within reach of the farmer. Any tight, strong tcask, or box, will answer as well for this purpose. Water poured upon the ashes makes a lye, or solution of potash ..strong enough to decompose the hones. The casks should stand under cover, so that the quan tity of water applied to the bone and ashes may be under control. The time it will take to reduce the bone to a powder will depend upon the amount, of potash ...

DELAYED TELEGRAMS. TO THIS EDITOR OF Till? fl. M. riRKATJ). Sm,—It having bcon mooted that it would bo dosirablo to do away with tho system of permitting tolograms marked " delayed" being sont after tlio closo of othor warlc, ut half usual ratos, I bog most omphatieally to protest against any bucIi alteration. Postal communication with many of our country districts is slow and uncertain, and it is an immense convenience for business men to bo ablo to scud telegrams, at mode rate oost, to their distant constituents; and tho facilitios afforded by dolayod tclograms frequently cause tho wire to bo used instoad I of souding a Jotter. Tlioso telegrams entail no additional expense upon tho office ; tho lino is used at a timo when it would lie idle, and as a rulo for tclograms which would, not otherwise bo sont. It must bo well for tho community that ovory moans should bo af forded for prompt and cheap cbmmunica j tion • it is thorcforo to be hoped that, instoad of withdrawing this system,...
ARE HARES DISTRUCTIVE? [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 23 August 1884

Last yejir a, 2/3 acro paddock was kept closo shaved by the lively u reptiles," and lie bad not to put a Uiachino ou the paddock, so well stripped, had it beon. He did not gathor one straw off it.- This year, also, the foreign harves ters are busy. They will not allow the crop to show more than an inch above the ground, • and: they take recreation among the orchard treos, many of which liavo beon destroyed by them. Mr. Trenoman says ho would not mind the hares so much if they would only satisfy their appetites on sorrol and otlior -noxious weeds. But this they won't do, and farmers must, either enclose their orops with a paling fence, or put up with the consequences, 'l'hero should be no difficulty just now, when meat is, so dear, in finding purchasers for this kind of ...
