Fowls and Ducks in London. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 31 August 1895

Fowls and Backs in London. The Department of Agriculture has received a letter from the Agent-General with respect to the consignment of poultry whioh was for* warded to England from the Hawkesbury Agriculture College. It arrived in good oondition. The fowls fetched 4s Qd a pair/and tk. 0 a muiK. A Iaw Mnuvin AnnVfi were forwarded on behalf of a poultry breeder who was anxious to test the English market, but they only realised 3s each. Egg produoing costs less tbaq raising fowls for market, either in time or trouble. They are a finished product, requiring no feeding, fussing or loss. They sell for cash, and there iB little danger ot an over production. | When 4 ox. of salt axe diseoivea in w oi. os water, an egg a day old will sink to the bottom ; one two days old will nearly reaoh the bottom ; three days old will float near the top ; and one five or .more days old will projeot above the flurfaoe more and more as it becomes older.

TABLEAUX AND CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 31 August 1895

TABLEAUX AND CONCERT. On Wednesday evening, a number of tbe ladies of St. Johns' parish, Parramatta, who of late have been working with the view of securing funds for the improvement of tbe caretaker^ cottage near the Church, placed before the rmblic & creditable entertainment, in the shape of Tableaux and Oonoert. It is to be regretted that tbe attendance on the ocoasion was not /arger ; but if the experiment be repeated it will be a pleasure to us to assist in guarding against a repetition of the com paratively poor patronage. We learn from Miss Lamb, who was one of the leading spirits in the affair, that those who pat in an appear ance. did not renresent tho whole of the tickets sold, by any means ; and as there have been so many concerts and entertainments of late, the world and his wife may have made up their minds that evening to take a ntght af home. They missed a treat by so doing, for all that. The entertainment was opened with an admirably executed overture, bj tha...

OPEN COLUMN. "National Credit and How to Use It" (Continued from last week [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 31 August 1895

OPEN COLUMN. ' National Credit and How to Use It.' (A PAMPHLET BY EX-MAYOR PALMER, OF GRANVILLE.) {Continu€& from latt ircek. j There are two popular errors of secondary importance into which Mr. Palmer has fallen. The first is— that we borrow 'gold ' when we raise a loan ; the second, that we do not export gold to any appreciable extent in payment for imports. The fact of the matter is, as rerards the latter, that we exnort all the cold we don't require at home. If we were a non using gold country, we should still raise gold — for export. It is the only one of our exports for which the world's market is ever open to the full. It must, therefore, be a basis in international commerce whether we will or not. Ard — where does international com merce begin and end with respect) to domestic commerce. Can the two— working together — be unequally yoked — the one to gold, and the other to a Government proclamation ? Mr. Palmer's scheme supposes that credit notes shall be issued only...

LOCAL MUSIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 31 August 1895

LOCAL MUSIC. We have received from the talented young composer— Mrs. E. Withers (neg Miss Edie Holland) of Macquarie-street, Parramatta, a copy of her ' Brassey ' waltz. The com I position is published (in a most creditable style) by a firm in this colony ; and has already gained renown. It is, therefore, I with feelings of the most cordial sincerity that I we extend to our gifted townswoman the con- i gratulations which her success in the sublime I field of art compel us to recognise as her due. For long famed as an instrumentalist of J unique skill, a lady with the rare gift of in- 1 terpretinggracefullytbe soul lying ready to be, discovered in the work of the most renowned of the world's master-musicians, it is little wonder that she has been led to apply her wit and knowledge to the creation of original beauties in the same sphere. We had the advantage of listening tbe other day to the ' Brassey ' waltz, as played by Mrs. Withers herself ; and can bear testimony to the promise t...

UNIVERSITY EXTENSION LECTURES. Professor Jose delived the third of the pre- j pent series of University Extension Lectures at ; the School of Arts, Parramatta, on Monday evening.

The lecture was divided into three sections— the war of tbe Austrian Suc cession, including the capture and surrender of Louisberg ; the struggle between ...

POULTRY NOTES. Mr. Hall's Poultry Farm, FAIRFIELD. THE ORIGINAL N.S.W. 'FARM'; THE HOME OF THE WHITE LEGHORN. On Monday, tbe 19th inst., a Free Press reporter paid a vi6it to the poultry farm of Mr. Hall, Fairfield. There, bathed in a flood of warm spring sunshine, with its downward slopes stretchine away to the north-west, lav the original Home of the Champion Leghorns of this part of Australia ; and in their com* fortable, dry pens strutted tbe feather champions in half-a-dozen classes. Mr. Hall's farm is about half-a-mile distant in a south-easterly direction from Fairfield station. The visitor first crosses by Mr. Dale's residence, keeping along the little paddock track ; then skirting a few post and wire fences he dives down into a gully of bracken — where whin and bramble, tuft-grass and wattle, form a breast-work, sheltering as it were the placid waters of tbe little dry-weather creek (for in flood-time that same creek is a swollon river) ; and in a few more strides he reache...

Select Poetry. SEPTEMBEK IS AOSTRALtA. Grey winter hath gone like a wearisome guest, And, behold, lor repayment, September comes in with the wind of the west. And the spring in her raiment I The ways of the frost have been filled of the flowers, WViilo tliefnrnst diuv-ivprfi WUd wings, with the halo of hyaline hours, i And the music of lovers. \ September, the maid with the swift, stiver feet, Sbe glides, and she grace/) The valleys of coolness, the dopes of the heat, With her blossorny traces. Sweet month, with a mouth that is made of a rose, i She lightens and lingers Zd spots where the harp of the evening glows, Attuned by her fingers. The stream from its home in the hollow hill slips In a darling old fashion *, And the day goeth down with a song on its lips Whose key-note is passion, ffac out in the fierte, bitter front of the sea I stand, and remember Dead things that were brothers and sistere of thee, Resplendent September. The west, when it blow* at tbe fall of the noon, And ...

Stream Pollution. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,— 1 noticed your commendable artiole on ' Stream Pollution ' of a few weeks back, i and would also like to say a few words on the same subject. Hunt's Creek, from ' the Toll bar ' down to tbe Park, is one long winding stcearq of putrid filth, and the stenoh (in knock you down.' The water from that creek was formerly used to a very large extent hy the residents about here for domestic pur poses, but lately no one oan use It. Horses and cattle, that know good water from bad better than most human beings won't touoh it — and their natural instinct is not at fault. At the pools on the western side of the toll-bar bridge whioh once abounded in eels, you oan now sit for ever and not get a bite : and I'm inclined to think that the filth has poise&ed every living thing in the creek. The Chinese gardeners at the back of the gaol who used the water now find that the fluid if used in the garden means death to plants. And further, ' if this goes on, ...
