The Production of Tobacco. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 7 April 1894

Tlie Production of Tobacco. In response to an invitation from . Mr. Harrie Wood, Under-Secretary for Mines and Agriculture, several gentlemen interested in tobacco growing and tobacco manufacturing assembled at the Mines Office recently to inspect some tobacco recently grown and cured at Tumut, under the care of Mr. Sutherland, tobacco expert of the Department of Agriculture. The samples shown (says the Herald) were Burleigh, a very light-coloured leaf, and Big Frederick, a large red leafed tobacco. The former was cured in three and a half days, and the latter in four or five days by the fire system, in a drying house erected by the department on the farm of Dr. H. W. Mason. The tobaccos were from American seed introduced by the depart ment. They were grown under circumstances which were somewhat disadvantageous, being among a maize crop. The object of the meeting was to obtain opinions regarding the quality of the product end the prospects of the industry. There were amongst those ...

Pacts About London. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 7 April 1894

Pacts About London. London's death-rate in 1892 was clo3e upon 22 per thousand of the population, as compared with under 21J per thousand in tho previous year, and the County Council Committee, setting forth for themselves the number of deaths from the prin cipal diseases, know the dangers to be coped with in caring for the health of the citizens. Bronchitis is the greatest enemy of Londoners, slaughter- | ing its 10,000 every year, and generally a thousand or two more. Consumption takes it 8000 victims, and pneumonia has never had less than GOOO 9ince 1889. Influenza, which has only three victims in 1888 and five in 1889, now claims over 2000 a year. That scourge, cancer, carries oil more than 3000. To keep London healthy, the local authorities are spending at the rate of about 3s per head of population for main drainage, parks, and other spaces, improvement schemes, and other sanitary expenditure ; and the parks and open spaces in and round about London, including Windsor, are est...

A Great Storm Wave. LOSS OP LIFE AND DESTRUCTIONS OP PROPERTY. The mail boats from the Continent experienced terrible weather on Sunday night, Feb. IS, thejOstend boat being nearly three hours late in reaching Dover. The cross-Channel steamers were unable to leave Newhaven for Dieppe owing to the fury of the gale.

The Barren Lands of Canada. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 7 April 1894

The Barren Lands of Canada. The country lying between the Athabasca and Mackenzie River basins and the we3fc shore of Hud son's Bay, known on mapa of the Dominion of Canada as the ' Barren Lands,' has hitherto been one of the unexplored regions of the earth's surface. In the spring of last year it was determined to send an expedition to the Barren Lands, and Mr. Joseph B. Tyrrell, a geologist, who had already done good exploring work, wa3 selected to lead it. Mr. Tyrrell was accompanied by his brother, Mr. James W. Tyrrell, a surveyor, and by six Indians. Mr. Tyrrell states that they left Edmonton about the beginning of June, and proceeded to Athabasca, landing and taking with them three canoes. The last place where Indians were encountered was at Fort Fond du Lac, half-way along the shore of Lake Athabasca. Between the lake and the Barren Lands there is an extensive wooded belt, which is the furthest point ever reashed by the Indians on their hunting expeditions. The local Indian w...

Friendly Societies. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 7 April 1894

Friendly Societies. A suggestive and at the same time a dis quieting report was laid on the tible of the Assembly on Wednesday night. It was from the pen of the Government Statistician, and related to the proceedings of Friendly Societies for the past year, and to his own aotion under Part III of the Friendly Societies Act. In the first place, Mr. Coghlaii complains Df the neglect in the past of two safeguards which the Act provides, and 7fhich would en sure the stability of all registered societies. The firat safeguard ia the requirement as a condition precedent to registration, of an actu arial certificate that the contributions are ade quate to assure the benefits ; and the second is the compulsory separation in tho working of a society of each fund f -r which a separate table of contributions has been adopted. Neither of these safeguards havo been pre served in the past, and the result is the present unfortunate condition of uffaira. The e»il of registering societies originally ...

The Aims of the Graziers' Meat Export Company. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 7 April 1894

The Aims of the Graziers' Meat Export Company. In a conversation with a reporter of the Sydney Morning Herald, Mr. Cuthbert Fetherstonhaugh yesterday explained with some detail the aims of the proposed Graziers Meat Export Company. The matter, says Mr. Fetherstonhaugh, has been incubating for the past eighteen months. The financial crisis twelve months ago checked oper ations for the formation of the Company, but he haa been in 'communication with all the pastoral companies, and at their instigation has recently paid a visit to New Zealand. There are 22 freezing works in that country; they buy sheep from growers for the most part ; and, as the supply of sheep is not sufficient for the demand, the sheep farmers benefit by the competition. Sheep here are on th'e ' contrary in over-supply, and conse quently sheep, which would in New Zealand bring 10s Gd to 123 on the station, are worth at Homebush only 7b Gd. Mr. Fetherstonhaugh is convinced that with onr magnificent climate we can rai...

The Maitland Exhibition. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 7 April 1894

The Maitland Exhibition. The Secretary of tho Hunter River Agricultural and Horticultural Association, with his assistants, has posted up the entries for the forthcoming Show, with the favourable result that upwards of three thousand entries have been received. This Exhi bition is the Jubilee one — the first show held in Maitland having taken place just fifty yearB ago. On that occasion prizes were offered in 25 classes, and in them there were no entries in 5, bo that only 20 prizes were awarded, so that some idea of the difference of the shows may be imagined. In addition to this the National prizes have also evoked considerable competition throughout the various classes. The Secretary in forms us that tho competition in blood stock, in cluding the champion prize, will bo the best that has prevailed for some yearB ; while the coaching and hackney classes will be very strong. The same remarks apply to the heavy draught classes. Dairy | cattle will also be well in evidence. There wil...

When tablecloths are found to begin to wear out in the middle or at other folds, a few inches cut off at one end and one side will alter the place of all the folds completely, and give a new lease of life. The same may be done to napkins, if large enough to allow it, as well as to towels, and the house-linen will thus wear longer and look tidy to the last. An interesting anecdote is being told of the late Mr. Aynsley Cook's appearance in an American law court as a basso. He was, it is said, in his early career engaged for an American tour. After a few weeks the ' ghost ' censed to walk, and the manager was sued by an irate creditor, who pleaded that the manager was to blame for having engaged so poor a company. This the manager denied, and asked leave to send for the ' least known member ' of the company, that he^miglit sing to the court. Mr. Aynsley Cook was selected, and sang ' The i Village Blacksmith ' in a way that took the court by storm. The judge dismissed the suit, making a...

SPARKE'S CREEK, SCONE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 7 April 1894

SPARKE'S CREEK, SCONE. A visitor to Sparke's Creek on the evening of the 28th instant, would certainly have been astonished at seeing such a crowd of people as made their way to the Public school, to witness tho concert held in aid of the prize fund. Every available inch of space was occupied, and a long, varied, and in teresting programme was brought to a most successful issue. The first part of the programme was opened by a pianoforte solo, 'The Sleigh Uace,' with bell accompaniment, by Mr. Gunter, which was brilliantly executed. Then followed a quartette, 'Row, Boatman, Row,' by Misses Ashford and Messrs. Gunter and F. Barwick. This appeared to have been carefully practised, and was well rendered. The school children sang two four part songs, 'Minnie Darling' and 'Where the Tippling waters flow.' Hearty applause greeted the excellent rendition of these fine songs. A -feature of the concert was the fact that the school children, in solos, duetts, and recitations, contri buted to t...
