Sporting. THE TUBF. Bosehill B eing Club. AUGUST MEETING. The August re-unlon of the Bosehill Racing Club took place on Saturday, and proved a most enjoyable one. Just before the first race some one threw a lighted match on the lawn in the St. Lcger reserve. The short grass was soon abiuze, and i fanned by a gentle breeze the flames qnickly extended right across the course and into the J long grass inside the picket fence. Assistance I was quickly rendered by tbe occupants of both j reserv es, and the fire was soon beaten out with I boughs, though not before over 50 yards of the ! track had been denuded of herbage. In the ; (iranviUe Stakes, Wyalong and Wild Olive were to the fore in the earlier part of tbe race ; bui Finis, on whom Durston rode a wafting race, challenged Wyalong at the distance, and won by a head after an exciting finish. Four teen youngsters took part in the Juvenile Stakes, and despite her 71b. penalty, Lady Loch was in most demand; H.D., Dowry, and Queen of Denm...

SEVEN HILLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 31 August 1895

SEVEN HILLS. A few weeks ago some smarties stole a thousand tomato plants from Mr. All Bow's vegetable field. Nearly all the plants in the district except Ah Bow's were destroved bv frost. His were saved by means of extraordinary pre caution and unremitting attention. They were worth about £1 a hundred owing to extreme scarcity. On condoling with him, he smiled, saying they were not lost, they were only gone. Instead of using words unfit for publication and rushing for the police like a Euro pean, he with quiet skill, traced the pirates within twelve hours and secured his proofs. He did not rush matters for fear the plants would be destroyed. As it is he will be saved a lot of trouble as other people will be carefully nurtur ing his plants, till they come to garner in the fruits of their piratical trip to Seven Hills. Then Ah How will pre sent his proofs and put in his spoke. He will levy direct taxation on three persons on the improved value, and they will not be able to say boo. T...

VERY wisely did Alderm&h Jouxston, of Dundas, move, in calling the attention of his fellow Councillors, at the lost Council Meeting, to the great one-thing-lacking in the district Town Hall. The hall is one of the finest in our district, and in many ways it is as convenientas it ie large and cosy, undoubtedly. The stage, at the western end, is roomy, and in every sense what it should be, save that it locks even a curtain. The is neither proscenium nor drop scene. There are no wings — no flies; nothing but the bare stage. Two convenient ante-rooms gave entrance to the stage; bat exits and entrances take place in the foil view of the audience ; and dignity stands sacrificed often, and good effect is rarely secured. The difference that will be apparent when Axderman Johnston's innovation is un fait accompli will make all wonder how the scanty provision in the hn.II {in the respect indicated) has been endured for so long. For we are all to blame : the Press should have anticipat...

Our Institutions, and Fire. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 31 August 1895

Our Institution?, and Fire. Ok more than one occasion the local Press of Parramatta has raised em phatic protest against the state of things which disgraces our colony, in connection with the absence of pro vision against danger from fire at our Asvlumt; for the Infirm and Destitute. So long as other things were all right, it seemed to trouble no one's head that the world might one of these mornings wake up to be shocked with the news that a large oil-saturated building had caught fire in the night, and been burned down to the ground in the space of a couple of hours, and three or four hundred old men and women — cripples, sick, and infirm — had been roasted alive before they could be removed to a place of safety. We know full well that in publishing so strongly-worded a sentence as that last, we are placing ourselves in I the pillory for the benefit of official dawdlers and political axe grinders ; we have, no doubt, be come 'alarmists.' Whether we have become alarmists yet or not,...

SHERW JOB. The weather continues to be dry with continuous westerly winds, and on Sun day the wind blew with considerable force — in fact, at the rate of sixty miles an hour, causing our vegetable gardens to present an appearance of being dried up. From early morning until evening our district was in a state of excitement on account of tbe many bush fires around us especially those fires at Orcharding!}!, Guildford. Many of our residents' willingly assisted to save property that happened to be in danger.

FARM AND ORCHARD. Fruit Pests Bill MEETING AT THOMPSON'S CORNER. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 31 August 1895

FARM AND ORCHARD. Frnit Pests Bill MEETING AT THOMPSON'S CORNEB. A meeting of fruitgrowers to consider the proposed Fruit Pests Bill was held at Thompson's Corner, Pennant Hills, on Satunlay afternoon. There was an attendance of about fifteen well-known growers (including Messrs. Boyle, Rftmhlinff f4nl]nrr1 Knn\ Pnnwr Harrison, and others). Mr. Gambling was voted to the chair. Almost at the outset a discussion arose on the question of amending the Bill. Mr. Knox strongly urged the appoint- . inent of a committee to consider-the Bill exhaustively. He said the Minister had admitted that the Bill was merely a copy of a measure in force in British Calumbia. He thought this itself went to show its unsuitableness, unless proper adaptations were intro duced. The two questions of dealing with importations and of dealing with home-grown fruit should be kept separate, — but, as a matter of fact, they were so intermingled throughout the Bill that the whole would require to be taken to pieces. ...

AUBUEN. Garrington Benefit. A BIG SUCCESS. A worthy object, a house packed to overflowing, an exceptionally good pro gramme, carried out almost to the letter, and an attentive, decorously-behaved andappreciativeaudience — thesefactors, supplemented by the efforts of an as siduous, painstaking chairman, charac terised the Garrinston benefit on Fri day last, and went to make it one of the most pronounced of successes yet seen in the Auburn-Rookwood district. The effort was organised by the employees of the Sydney Meat Works, in aid of the family of a fellow-workman who, for some time, has been prostrated by illness. Alderman Roper, who so satisfactorily presided over the business of the evening, explained, in a few ap propriate remarks at its close, that the whole credit of initiation and manage ment was due to tbe workers in the S.M.P.

Mr. Swann on the Note-taker. The poor newspaper scribe must have his turn, Mr. President of the School of Arts ! When waiting for Father Curran on Wednesday night, at tbe School of Arts' hall, that popular Chair man, Mr. Swann, beguiled tbe flying moments with a few introductory remarks. Father Curran was a few minutes late in petting from the Railway Station ; and to keep things moving, the Chairman dwelt on tbe advantage of technical education — of the shorthand classes in particular ; and to point his logical contentions, he directed unerring and specific attention to the unfortunate (or fortunate — so far as the quality of the evening's treat was concerned) newspaper scribe, who in full gaze of all, sat pencilling for tbe Free Press. Was it fair?

The ' Au Revoir.' Mr. W. Giles and Mr. W.

Tbe Classes have been run, we are informed, on ideal lines ; and we had the privi lege ot glancing i;i ni, a neat little insti tution on Wednesday night, an ' Au Revoir ' jig, the character of which left no doubt in our minds that all that has been said about the pleasant features of the said Classes is well within the bounds of fact. Tbe School of Arts hall had been nicely prepared for the event ; and t!ie flooring boards were as slippery as ice (too slippery for any but the agile and the lithe, to caper upon).
