The Late Flood. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

The Late Flood. OUB Lawrence correspondent writes :-July 22nd: I do not know of any subject affecting us, or engaging our attention at the present time, more than this ; everyone seems busy house-cleaning, drying, and renovating. If Thursday night with its dreadful accompaniments of wind and rain-such furious wind and such fearful rain-could have been misconstrued into an omen of something dreadful likely to happen, old residents throughout the district must have thought of the legend handed down to ns by the ancient aboriginals, that once a flood waa known to reach the summit of 'Wilson's Hill, and would some day reach it again. But it is the unexpected that generally happens. Few if any, were prepared to doubt the likelihood of something far more disastrous than we have had. It is a fortunate thing the flood has happened at the present time, and it is still more fortunate that after all we could have given the river over three feet to rise to be as high as the last. Com- parativel...

Basely Ungrateful. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

Basely Ungrateful. AN old fellow Bat on a rail fence ; his hat lay on the ground ; his long hair was tangled, and his face wore a revengeful expression. A traveller noticing the old fellow's hardness of countenance, stopped and thus addressed him :-" S"ou seem to be worried." "Am." "What's thc matter?" "Got a duty to perform." " It must be an unpleasant one." "No ; the duty ÍB pleasant enough, but the waiting is tiresome." " Why do you wait ?" " See that house up yonder ?" " Yes." " Well, there's a I fellow in there that I'm going to larrup as soon as I he comes out." " He has done you an injury, I I suppose?" "He has." "What did he do?" "Well, I'll tell you. He came into this neighbourhood about six months ago, and began to practice medi I cine. I have been a practicing physician in this I community for 30 years, yet I treated the upstart ' kindly. How did he repay mo ? With the basest ingratitude, sir. I'll tell yon how it was. About two weeks ago old Peter Nolan was taken awfully...

Differential Railway Rates. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

i Differential Railway Bates. ~~ AT URALLA a public meeting baa been dealing with differential railway rates, and the recent action of the Commissioners in reducing the truck rates from Guyra northwards. Under the reduced rates a truck load of goods to Uralla costs £34, while to Guyra and on to the border the cost is only £27. Mr. INGLIS, it was stated, had tried to get the reduction made to apply to Uralla and all stations North, bnt had failed. There was not much selfishness in this, of course ; and if the political influence of Mr. INGLIS had succeeded the Uralla people would have offered -no word of complaint, however so much all other parts of the country might have suffered. At the meeting it was contended that the reduction Bhonld apply to all stations upon the New England Tableland. But if so, why not to the whole colony ? One is about aa reasonable aa the other, and the Commissioners rates as absurd as either. Of course, in dealing with the question as it applied to themsel...

A Disgrace to the Military Department. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

A Disgrace to the Military Depart - . ment. XHE trouble apout tue great guns at the Steel Point ? battery, as disclosed by the papers published, is a disgrace to the «hole Military establishment of the colony. It may be all very well for some of; the officers to excuse themselves and so shuffle off the blame and the responsibility ; but it will take a lot . of shuffling to convince the public that the Military organisation is not an expensive and, comparatively speaking, useless encumbrance. There ia too much' staff and too many, officers-too muon of a division of responsibility-to ensure perfect efficiency ; too much apeing after the Imperial system of mili taryism, cud too little of the right kind of discip- line. Discipline of the painted soldier order there is too much of. The whole thing should be swept away ; while as to the Steel Point battery business, that should be dealt with somewhat after the manner they deal with dereliction of duty in China. It is recorded that in that...

Matrimony in New York. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

Matrimony in New York. THIS is the way the ladies of New York prepare themselves for conquest. The maid bas ceased to be sufficient attendance, her time being more or less absorbed by the toilet and cognate matters, so the present plan is to engage the services of a woman who goes ont by the day or hour, and on whose cards you read "Ladies' Toilets." She has entire charge of the persons of her customers ; and it is her duty to see that they are kept beautiful. Once or twice a week she rubs, combs, brushes, clips, and cleans their hair, undertaking to keep it soft, sleek and thick. She manicures the nails, and uses and recommends such unguents as are warranted to keep the hands soft and white. She is a pedicure as well, and keeps her customers' feet in as perfect condition as her hands. She has a thousand different devices of beautifying the face, and undertakes to ward off wrinkles by her rubbings and emollients. She trains eyebrows in the way they should go, removes superfluous hai...

Water Gas. A Very Interesting Paper. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

Water Gas.' . A Very Interesting Paper/ - , . - ? - - - -- - .> MB. S. FOX, CE., of Leeds, recently read a very interesting paper on the subject of .water gas, which is extensively used in the Leeds Forge, one of the largest manufac- tories of that city. The plant necessary for water gas production consists of a generator, with means of producing an air blast, pro- vided with the necessary .valves ; a scrubber to cool and cleanse the gas of dust ; a small gas-holder and purifiers in proportion to the amount of gas to be passed and controlled by. a centre valve. The apparatus as designed is very simple, and requires no skilled labour to manipulate it. Water gas as its name implies, - is produced from water by a chemical reaction which takes place in passing steam through incandescent carbon- aceous matter. In the water gas generator the water is split up, and the oxygen com- bines with the carbon, forming in its passage through the fuel, carbonic oxide. The oxide of carbon, or car...

A Pretty Strong Minute. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

A. Pretty Strong Minute. THAT little dispute between the Civil Service Board . and the Department of Justice is not yet settled, the latest phase of the question presenting itself in a paper laid on the table of the Assembly, consist- ing principally of a minute from the Civil Service Board by way of reply to the letter of «he UNDER : SECRETARY FOB JUSTICE addressed to the Minister On the subject of the Board report for 1888. This minute points out " the inaccuracy of many of the statements" of the Uunder-Secretaxy, and accuses that officer of " carefully avoiding any reference to the main issue raised ..by the Board-whether dis- missal or dereliction of duty does, or does not, cancel previous Bërvice." It goes fully into the question of. the. two appointments over which the dispute arose, and sums np the general position thus : "That in the one case Mr. Hales was not elegible for appointment, ai his service prior to dis- missal had been annulled ; and in the other case, the informa...

The Millionaire and the Beauty. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

The Millionaire and the Beauty. TEN thousand florins for a kiss ! For a mere vulgar millionaire without much soul that (comments a writer in the St. James1 Gazette) is a very good " lay out." Poets, of course, have often offered a great deal more merely to touch the hem of her garment, but they have not always been in a position to pay for it. The story is told by the veracious Evénement, which always knows what Englishmen and millionaires are doing. There was a charity bazaar the other day at the Princess d'Aremberg's residence in Vienna, and one of the most beautiful stall holders was the Marchioness Pallaviccini. An English millionaire who was present offered to pay 10,000fl.-close upon £1000 to the charity if only the marchioness would give , him one little kiss. Touched by such devotion and anxious to help the charity, she consented, to the joy of the onlookers ; for even in Vienna you do not see a millionaire ! kis3 a high-born beauty in public every day. These millionaires ar...

j Our Ocean Steamers in a Gale, j Seven Says at Sea. / TH* steamers City bf Grafton and Australian that left Sydney on Tuesday,16th inst., experienced the full force of the late heavy weather, having been at sea the whole time, crossing in on Tuesday evening hwt . -i Captain Magee, of the s.s. City of Grafton, states that after leaving Sydney, East and E.N.E. winds were experienced as far as North Solitary. The barometer "was falling' and the wind freshening, but after arriving off the. Heads at the usual time,: the weather was too thick to make out the land. It was then deemed expedient, as the sea was increasing, to head the vessel seawards under easy steam. The barometer still lowered, and the wind increased to a hurricane, accompanied by blinding rain and tremendous sea. 12 miles from land a number of empty hogsheads were in sight, and six' miles further out a quantity of sawn pine. After proceeding 62 miles to sea, the vessel was again headed for the land, and at 1.30 p.m. on F...

Glen Innes. TUESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

Grien Innes. TUESDAY. I THE MAILS.-Owing to the delay of the coaches at some of the Clarence tributaries, the mails have been a little out of time with Grafton, but they are now running as usual and the contractor, under the circumstances, is entitled to1 credit for main- taining communication BO perfectly'as he did. THE WEATHER.-Last week a heavy gale blew over the town accompanied by heavy rain. Flocks of wild geese were driven westward from the coast, showing that the gale was seaward. A cottage in Torrington-street was unroofed by the violence of the wind, and its sole occupant, a Mrs. Ferrett, narrowly escaped. A quantity of the debris fell around the bed, which pinioned her arma though not pressing on the body. Her repeated cries for assistance awakened a neighbour, who with some difficulty burst open the door and removed the bricks and other rubbish which prevented Mrs. Perrett from rising. She providentially escaped with but little injury.

The Upper Ten. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

The Upper Ten. WHAT a flutter there must be at this present moment on the bosoms of the families of " the upper ten " in each of the Australian colonies ! The great questions with them just now are, "How much shall we tell ? j How far back dare we go!" And the reason j of this is that Sir Bernard Burke has announced his intention to compile a work on the gentry of the colonies, and has invited colonial families coming under such category to furnish him with particulars for the same ! Was there ever such an embarrassing, and in many instances, tantalising, chance held out to mortals? Shall we tell what grandpa really was 1 Who shall we Bay ma was ? for of course, we can't very well tell that pa married his c-k. How about coming over with the conquerer-that is to say with Philip] If we date ourselves far back, won't it be supposed that our family is too closely connected with the early history of British settlement in Australia! And if we put ourselves too recent, will Burke admit us ...

Small Provocation. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

Small Provocation. SASDX M'TAGOABT was going to Glasgow on business. He had delayed the necessary change of his toilette till the last moment, and was fussing and fretting over the oper- ation as only an impatient man can do. At last the business was completed ; and he was rushing to the door and he tripped over a pair of Kirsty's boots, which were lying on the floor, and only avoided measuring his length on the ground by his head coming into sharp contact with the wall. Sandy rubbed his skull, and muttered one or two things unfit for publication. "Man, Sandy, ye're awfu' impatient!" remarked Kirsty, reprovingly, "«fist the sma'est thing aye pits ye in a passion." " The sma'est thing !" echoed Sandy, in irate tones. " Ma guidness, wuman, will ye be for ca'in' yer buits sma1 things ?" And he rushed off to catch his train, before Kirsty could muster up her indignation for a suitable retort.

This is an improvement that has been long much needed, and if the drain works satisfactorily, busi- ness people and the public in that direction will be spared a very great nuisance in the future. It is pleasing to see our maintenance man working near home, and gives one the idea of "go-ahead times/' I public works of any sort tending to impress the idea of a healthy business tone. Some repairing is also being done to the footpath along that street past the Post office, and certainly that was wanted. It has often been remarked within my nearing, that with the facilities we possess our footpaths ought to be the best imaginable. Within easy cartage distance of the town, namely, from Swan. Creek, tons of gravel could be obtained, I under- ' stand, free ; and if laid on tb our side walks pretty thickly, I am sure the bene...

On Swimming Horses. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

On Swimming Horses. WE often read of fatal accidents happening through misplaced confidence in a horse's swimming powers. Any swimmer knows what carrying a weight in water amounts to, and when it comes to the greater part of the weight being out of the water as well -why, it means handicapping to the verge of destruction.. With regard to swimming horses across a stream, if the rider be a non-swimmer, let him by all means stay on dry land, for the chances are twenty to one against him. If he is a swimmer, let him i remember that entanglement in deep water means death to either man or beast. Be- fore riding a horse into deep water, the rider should keep his feet clear of the stir- rups (croBs them in front) and unbuckle his reins ; as a rule a horse goes boldly enough until he is out of his depth, and then his first effort is to drop his hind quarters to try and touch bottom ; should he succeed he will plunge forward and try it again ; if it is too deep for him, and he had to swim bef...

Is the Turf a Gaming Hell? Opinion of the "Pall Mall Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 July 1889

Is the Turi a Craming Hell ? j Opinion of the "Fall Hall Gazette." m "WHAT should be the attitude of a good citizen towards the racecourse, is thu» dealt with by the Pall Mall Gazette. Granting that the Turf ÍB a gaming hell» what should be the attitude of a good citizen towards such an institution ? The Puritans, of course, settled this 200 years ago. They decided both as to stage plays on the one hand and horse racing on the other that no good man could have anything to do with either. To this day the boy- cott is maintained. No member of Mr, Spurgeon's church, for instance, would ever go to the Derby, or go to a theatre. If he did he would find himself regarded as a fair object for ecclesiasticial discipline; and. there are millions of Englishmen who hold, the same opinion as Mr. Spurgeon, who on, this point is in hearty agreement with Car- dinal Manning. That good Christians have no business in such haunts of the devil as the betting ring and tho theatre is a much, more widespre...
