Ball at Liverpool. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 17 August 1895
Ball at Liverpool. A plain and fancy dress ball, promo ted by Mrs. I. B. Bossley, in aid of the funds of the Liverpool Ladies' Benevo lent Society, recently took place in the local Town Hall, which was prettily decorated for the occasion, and .all arrangements for the enjoyment ot the visitors were undertaken by a number of gentlemen stewards. About forty couples attended, several wearing fancy costumes. The stage was set apart for spectators, of whom Mrs. M. Ashcroft, one of the oldest residents of the district, was one. Mrs. and Miss Wilson (Parra matta) supplied good music, and dancing was kept up until midnight.
WOMAN & HOUSEHOLD. The "Sir William Wallace" Masonic Ball. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 17 August 1895
WOMAN & HOUSEHOLD. The ' Sir William Wallace ' Masonic Ball. The MasonB of ' Sir William Wal lace,' Parramatta, and tbeir many friends, did not intend at first, as we understand, to run a ball this year ; but the .' Sir Walter Seott ' success (and, maybe, the Fkee Peebb notice of that hearty event had some little to do with the decision) led them to rush matters yk, and decide to go ahead with busi ness in which their fair charges — their wives and daughters and sisters (and other Masons' sisters and daughters)— could officiate. The consequence was, a gallery of interested townsmen and townswomen looked down on Friday night last upon a scene of enchanting loveliness, such as we are not often privileged to see in Parramatta. In fact, when first tho creams and pinks, in their satin glory, commenced to drift into the room before the Grand March was called up, there was an air about the placeasofa gorgeous Parisian salon. When Mr. Fyall, M.C., called upon the gentlemen to Belect...

'Parramatta Private Assembly.' The third of the Parramatta Private Assemblies took place on Friday last, and was in every way as great a success as each of its prede cessors.

OPEN COLUMN. ' National Credit and How to Use It' (A PAMI'ItLET BY EX-MAYOR PAXUEK, OF GRANVILLE). Mr. J. R. Palmer, ex-Mayor of Oranville, has recently issued a small octavo pamphlet of twelve pages bearing the above title, to which is added an explanatory sub-title setting forth its bearings on the unemployed question. Mr. irtuiuei. , we tuc buic, wuuiu uc me uibi lu uia claim any originality for the general idea. In the paper currency question it is as true as in other things -r-there is ' nothing new under the sun.' From the EnclyclopiEdist.'iof more than a centun' (igo down to the present time— from Law e Mississippi Bank to Ignativfl Donnelly's parable of ' the golden bottlo o Epliraira Benezet ' — the possibility of nationalising the ' credit element ' of our currency has tnken hold of the minds of men. The historic failure of the application of the idea during the l'rcnch Devolution, and in other almost equally well known cases — c.'i, in America — is rightly taken as inconc...

SEVEN HILLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 17 August 1895
SEVEN BILLS. - The capacity of the St. Andrew's Debating Society for disposing of weighty legislation is very great. The measure on the lengthy business-paper of the Society that was reached on the last night of meeting was one for giving a parliamentary vote to women, and it suffered ignominious deteat. So that the Advanced Woman who ex pected that she would soon possess electoral rights the same as.the horrid man will have to wait till the clouds roll by. It was generally known that Mr. Alexander Desman had prepared a telling speech, and when he caught the speaker's eye, rose, and launched out; the interest in the debate rose' to fever heat. He denounced the proposal with scom, and with facts that could not be dodged. He summed up thus : If you put a match to a haystack, the fire will not remain exactly where you put the match ; it will spread all over the stock. If you give the dear nuisances votes, they will in due course want to become members of Parliament. When they go to vot...
FARM AND ORCHARD. The Season for Manuring. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 17 August 1895
FARM AND ORCHARD. The Season for Manuring. When we have a choice o! time in order to apply manure with the best effect upon what is planted, whether orchard trees or field or garden crops, then just before they start into active growth ia the time whioh gives the most effective results. New feeding roots are being formed then, and the sap for building up the plant for the yield is coming forward, and necessary material for fruit trees stowed away for the growth of the following season. — Rural AtMralian. Manuring, however, is a thing that is not properly understood by many who practice it; often the very elements most needed being allowed to waste. A little pamphlet issued by Messrs. Thorpe tt Co, Brokers for Gees' celebrated manures, might be read by many persons with profit. Cheap and good manures are now obtainable too, at a fraction of the cost paid a little time back. Mr. Wooster at Carlingford, does a big business in such ; and Mr. Jas. Black at Castle Hill is we believe, devo...
Spraying. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 17 August 1895
Spraying. The time for spraying for codlin moth, and other insect or fungus disease is now fast approaching, so we give here some of the best recommended solutions used : — Bordeaux Mectube — Copper sulphate, 21bs; Fresh lime (unslaked), lflbs; Water, logals. For all fungus diseases of plants, such as mildews, rusts, rotB and blights, ia which either the spores, or the body of the fungus itself, is ex posed to its action). Pabib Gbeen — Paris green, 2ozs ; Water, 26gals. (For destroying insects that bite and chew the leaves, blossoms or fruit). Never spray with arsenics while the trees are in blossom, or the bees will be poisoned ; they are necessary to fertilize the flowers).
Pig Keeping. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 17 August 1895
Pig Keeping. Pig-breeding and fattening pay amongst the French, and should do so here. The French people seldom kill pigs for porkers ; as a rule, the animals are fed on till ten or twelve months. One of the secrets about pig-breeding in France, consists in keeping the rtye warm and clean — the latter not only in regard to the bed, but the trough. Skim milk aud potatoes form the base of the diet, with a few weeks on crushed oats or maize, or barley meal, to harden the animal for the market. Two pigs are kept per two cows to consume the skim milk. There is always a fixed demand for pork ; its price fluctuates but little, and there is little or no risk. Thrifty pigs should weigh at four months old, 70 to 801bs each. Bees as a rule, swarm several times during the season, and after the first swarm leaves the hive, the second may be looked for about the 6th to 9th day after ; the weather has something to do with it, however, a bright sunny day being what is desired. More people should ke...

Through coming incontact with a glass bottle, he gave bis shin a gash.

The Municipal Situation at Dundas. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 24 August 1895
The Municipal Situation atDundas. As will be seen by those who take an interest in tbe press reports of the Coun cil proceedings at Dundas, there is a decided set being made at the statu* quo in that municipality. Failing to see that their Council occupies a position, in relation not only to its finances, but also to its repute and its business methods, such as nearly every ratepayer elsewhere in the colony would be proud to have to credit to his or her borough or municipal district, a few of tbe local Oppositionists are pushing ahead a movement to make things lively for the powers that be. Mayor Cox is in power ; and with him are the remnants of the old Council — Aldermen SruBWAV ar.d Johnston. Against him it ] would appear are Aldermen Kbodes j and Franks, tbey having, too, a litle support now and then from Alderman Midson. The Dundas ald ermen are intelligent men, and honest men ; and their attention may therefore in reason and good-will bo directed to the probable result of tbe ...
