Monday's Storm. [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 12 March 1896
Monday's Storm. During the morning of Monday and es pecially after noon the heat in Camden was unpleasantly hot and muggy, with heavy clouds banking up in the South, towards 8 o'clock dark dense blue gray clouds hung ' entirely o£er the district, with but little i lightning, at 4.30 heavy drops of rain fell and shortly after the thunderstorm broke with all its vehemence and almost without intermission lasted until near 7,30 p.m. The lightning was most vivid aftd severe, but the thunder in Camden was not ro heavy as might have been., expected. 1 76 points of roin were registered by iho post master (Mr; Maroney) at Camden. Although such an amount of rain has naturally vastly benefited the land, and filled the d9KL?^3' creeks,- yet unfortunately, reports reach us ^ from the outlying districts that the storm v did a i-r- at amount of damage to the growing crops and the vines of melons, pumpkins the like.

Whitewash. [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 12 March 1896
Whitewash. A good whitewash for ^outdoor use can be made as follows : — Take a clean, water tight barrel or other suitable cask, and put into it half-a-bushel of lime. Slack it by pouring boiling water over it, and in suffi cient quantity to cover five inches deep, stirring it briskly til I thoroughly slacked.. When slacking has be^n effected, dissolve in water, and add t wo pounds of sulphate of zinc, aod one of common salt. The e will cause the wash to harden,, and prevent it from cracking, which gives an unseemly appearance to the work. If desirablo- ..a beautiful cream colour may be communi cated to the above wash by adding thiee pounds of yellow ochre. This waah tnay be applied with a common whitewash t-ruahj! . . # and will be found much superior, both In appearance and durability, to common whitewash. Alum i» one of the best additions to make Whitewash of lime which will not rub off.

The Bank Rate. [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 19 March 1896
The Bank Hate. The banks in New South Wales have reduced the rates on fixed deposits to .3 per cent for 12 months, and per cent for 6 months It is 15 years since these low rates were ruling in this colony, and no better sign of speedy revival in business could be found, than the redv« ion now ' made. Uerore that revival, we nave been looking for, could take place, it was absolutely necessary for the return on fixed investment to come down, so as to accord more nearly with the return yielded by use of the land. When this takes place revival must follow, for capital at once seeks other outlets. Low borrowing rates too, mean ,loW lending rates by the banks, and so that an impetus is given to enterprise, which inusG reflect on all classes of the colony. Capital cannot long remain idle, and the present action of the banks is sure to result in forcing money into profitable channels.
Reduction of Interest. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 19 March 1896
Be duotion ,of Interest. (To the Editor.) Sir : — One of the Sydney dailies announced that the Banks were going to reduce the rate of interest on fixed deposits owing to the large amount of gold stored up. I believe three per cent will be offered iu future. It is to be hoped the Banks will follow a different policy to that lately pur sued, not one mat is bound to bring financial disaster on the colony if persisted in. per cent has been allowed depositors on their money, and j'.et the bank has been charging their clients from 7 to 8 per cent interest on sub stantial securities! Is this fair to the people? If capitalists lend their money to the banks without any security for 3^ per cent, surely the monetary institutions should let their borrowers have money reasonably on ample securities. Very little encourage ment have been given small business people of late. Let us hope the banks will alter their policy in future by lending money on reasonable terms, and assisting commercial enterp...
Cobbitty. [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 19 March 1896
Cobbitty. [From our owNt Correspondent.] The roads in this district are on the way towards getting repaired, and not before they wore wanted. There is a piece of road between here and Camden that requires immediate attention, as it is in a,shooking state, if there is much rain the roads will be almost impassable. The road in questionis be tween Kirkham lane and the road from Mpin South road to Cobbitty. No one seems to have any funds for the repairing of this *oad for the safety of the general public. A petition should be signed and placed iu the hands of Mr. C. Bull M.P., no doubt tie may have this complaint seen to, as nothi ng has been done for years except that done by the council of Camden. | Heavy thunderstorm occurred on Monday . afternoon over 2 inches of rain fell. i ' ' -
Cawdor. [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 19 March 1896
Cawdor [From our own Correspondent,] I notice in a previous issue of this paper that Captain James Onslow has been promoted to the rank of Major, he, un- ; questionably deserves this promotion for he is not only painstaking and.a popular officer, but, one that takes every opportunity of improving himself and with his many advantages should in time become one of the government's most trusted and fore I most officers. I touched upon the above matter as I take a yreat interest' in the Mounted Rifles or, in fact, anything pertain ? ing to the colony's welfare, and as a great | continental war is as inevitable as evolution, j it is the duty of one and all of us, to take an active interest in our soldiers as' work may be required of them when the e war dogs' are let loose. Inquisitive nature^ sometimes leads us into mischief, children as well as adults. For example a son of Mr. Thos. O'Briens, somehow got his hand into a sausage, machine when at work and the result was that Dr. Bell had t...

Werombi. [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 19 March 1896
.Werdfcnbi- , (From: a Correspondent.) The residents of Werombi evidently bad more rain than what fell in this district. Just now, their crops look magnificent, grass is abundant, and .vegetable are plentiful. Things have not looked so bright in this locality - for years, land farmers go about now looking quite jolly. One of the dairy men, Mr.L. Williams, isnow making lOOlbs of butter weekly. During the dry weather, he was making* BOlbs weekly. 'Havilah' is undoubtedly one of the best all round farms within 100 miles of Sydney. Some of our clergymen have good pros pects of. business in the matrimonial line at Werombi; On Sunday nights, young men may be seen wending their way home, sadly lamenting that the hours pass too quickly away when in the society of their adored ones. The Werombi ghost has become ' a thing of the past'* -owing-' to the scare the spiritual visitor (?) received! The would-be ghost, wrapped' up in a white sheet, went forth one night' to paralyse a young man whose...
