WOODVILLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 3 February 1894

HOODVILLE. On Anniversary Day the annual picnic in connec tion with our local public school took place, and we are glad to say again proved a success in every way. The place chosen was the same as last year a picturesque little spot about a mile up Dunn's Creek from where it crosses the Paterson Road, and judging from the numbers who turned up uuiuugu me aay, me experiences and hair-breadth escapes of last year's drive along a bush track were either forgotten, or else the return of more sunny days and apparently brighter times has endued all with more appetite for such gatherings, and more courage to face the difficulties which a bush road generally presents ; certain it was that the num ber of adults present sboived no falling off on last year and all seemed to ODjoy themselves im mensely. The juvenile portion of the assemblage, when not engaged in the no very light task of get ting on the outside of the abundance of sandwiches, cake, and fruit that had been provided, and which evi...

SINGLETON. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 3 February 1894

SINGLETON. 'Rip Van Winkle.'— The fifth performance of Planquette's opera, 'Rip Van Winkle' was pro duced last evening, 1st inst., in the large hall of the Mechanics' Institute, and it being presumably the last, was fairly well patronised. The production of 'Rip Van Winkle' by the amateurs being per formed with such marked success, deserves everv encouragement from the public, and though the depressed season has evidently not been greatfly to the advantage of the enthusiastic, hard-worked promoters, still we trust their assiduity will not be lessened by a little extra enthusiasm on the part of the Singleton public, as the latber are always to the fore where good music and acting is concerned, which is well-known to be in our midst. Mr. Manly, President of the Mechanics' Institute, between the first and second acts, thanked the public for their kind patronage, and asked that they might extend it on Tuesday evening, Gth inst., as the expenses being so very heavy, viz., £140 for the wh...

LATE GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 3 February 1894

LATE GENERAL NEWS. Further particulars of the wreck of the Kana hooka show that Captain Campbell and a portion of the crew landed on the Mitchell, 180 miles from Normanton. They journeyed for some dis tance, swimming rivers and creeks, but Mr. Felton, the engineer, died from exposure, and Captain Campbell, was drowned while crossing the Nassau River. The other two survivors were picked up by a stockman on the Mentana run in a very weak con dirion. Nothing is known of the fate of the nine men who were in the second boat. News from Samoa states thas very disquieting rumours are current of an impending war. An un easy feeling prevails. Mr. Patterson, the Premier of Victoria, considers that the question of silver coinage for the Australian colonies tests solely with Victoria and New South Wales, as they are the only colonies with mints. He strongly disapproves of the proposal to consult the other colonies. The Rev. Dr. Jeffries has accepted the pastorate of the North Adelaide Congregati...

The oldeat rose bush in the world is at Hilder sheim, in Hanover. It was planted more than a 1,000 years ago by Charlemagne in commemoration of a visit made to him by the ambassador of the caliph Haroun-al-Easchid.

It is known, however, that a coffin-shaped vault was bnilt around its sacred roots in the vear 818. the vault and bush surviving a fire which destroyed the cathedral in 1146. The bush is now 26£t. high, and covers 30ft. of the wall. The stem, after 1,000 years' growth, iB only two inches in diameter.

Review. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 3 February 1894

Eeview. Steve Brown's Bunyip and other stories. By John Arthur Barrt. With introductory verses by Rudyard Kipling. Second Edition. London and Sydney : Remington and Co., Limited. The twenty stories and sketches in this volume have as the author tells us in his prefatory note, been for the most part written in the rare intervals of leisure afforded by a roviDg life over sea and land; and are, in many instances, records of per sonal adventure. They have appeared from time to time in a number of Australasian journals under the signature L. L., but are well worth republica tion in the present more permanent form. For they represent, with photographic correctness, the varied phases of the life they depict. All soits of experiences are narrated ; camping, gold digging, droving, station, seafaring, of the road, of the shearing shed, of pioneering in the remote interior of Australia, and so on. The reader who knows these lands will recognise the fidelity to truth of the pictures painted, tb...

TAREE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 3 February 1894

TAREE. The horrible noise too well known as the croaking of frogs during the last few days proves that they are exeellent premonitors, as they have been giving clear warnings of approaching wet weather for over a week. To hear some of these' reptiles answering their comrades some fifty feet up in the hollow of a tree is an indication of some unusual occurrence to take place at no distant date from the time the croaker is heard. And what they have been so earnestly shouting for— rain— has come in due time and somewhat gratified their longings, though some make out that they are not fully supplied yet. Rain began about mid-day on Saturday last, and has continued heavily almost without intermission till now, and it is still raining, so there is every probability of there being a good sized fresh in the river. If the weather would clear up now' it would be splendid, as there has been just enough rain for the grass, and almost too much for the crops. Fish have been biting well in the riv...
