Potato Growing. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 31 August 1895
Potato Growing. Most people who grow potatoes would be very glad to harvest ten tons of marketable ware per acre, and anyone who could bring out a manure which would always assure such a orop would deserve weU of his country. The yield of potatoes, as of all other crops, does not depend upon manuring alone — soil and climate are powerful factors, and the latter of these is quite beyond our control. Your soil is suitable for potato growing, but unless a good quantity of rain falls during the growing months the yield will be light. With a light soil you require a moist climate, and with a heavy soil a dry climate. As to artificials, you might apply 6 cwt. to 8 cwt. of Gee's Fertilizer (with potash) per acre as soon as you like ; this manure will supply potash, in which your soil is deficient, and of which potatoes require a good supply. Tbe manure should be sown over the ridges before planting the sets, then split tbe ridges over the sets, as by this means you will keep the artificial...

Slander. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 31 August 1895
Slander. The world is full of anomalies and paradoxes. One of the latest, in J Parramatta, is the slandering of one of 'l our foremost and most consistent oitzens j by those who can hardly come in a ij similar category. Sometimes these 1 latter get the ear of the press; and ! apparently some little evil is done. But j others have fortunately like opportuni- J ties ; and they possess an antidote for i every suoh poisoning of the publio mind. In the present oase, the shaft thrown is directed against Arohdeaoon Gunther, a man whose life is full of systematic work — done on oonstant, reasonable lines — on behalf of those amongst whom ' he lives ; and the shafts are thrown in - « some measure by those whose dissolute i habits make the work of such men as ] the devoted incumbent of St. Johns' j harder and more unsatisfactory generally ij than it would otherwise be. If an evil j exists in connection with the working 1 of the Parramatta Benevolent Society, j there is a legitimate way in whi...
OPEN COLUMN. How We Stupidly Treat Our Criminals. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 31 August 1895
OPEN COLUMN. How We Stupidly Treat Oar Criminals. No one with any intelligence mistakes the fact, we think, that Mr. Abigail (lately released from Parramatta Gaol) has more than made plain his desire to be of service to his fellows, in bringing to ilgUb liUtt Btuyiu UUULDC IfclO in connection with the treatment of some of our so-called criminals. We mean no offence in referring thus in our opening lines to Mr Abigail's late experiences. He has braved an exposure of a painful Bore, in order to do a public right ; and we feel that in that sense alone, will our reference to his life under Mr. Barnett's control, be pardoned. Falso delicacy will not be allowed either by him, or by others, to stand in the way of the exposure, and cure, of a present evil. Had Mr. Abigail not suffered (in accordance with the law of his country), he would not be the authority he is now, on the subject he has introduced. Persons write to the papers giving what they profess to represent as the warders' views o...

FOOTBALL. NOTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 31 August 1895
FOOTBALL. NOTE. Once more The Ring's School and Newing- 1 ton College have fought out their battle for 1 the Schools Premiership, and yet again has the old School triumphed. The hopes of the College were raised very high as, though the Premiers won easily on their first meeting this year, they had lost seven men since then — three left, and four injured or ill— whilst New ingtou team was practically the same. Futter and Manchee were the heroes of the day for the School, the former being everywhere, dribbling, kicking, and collaring in perfect style. Mnncliee'6 punts up the line in tbe second httlf really turned the tide in favour of the School. Mack, Docker, Cadden, Cox, Maughan, A. Dight, and H. Dight were tbe forwards, always on the bail. Bodv nfaved well, too. The backs did not get inany chances; but Jacques got in some useful runs. Ebaworth's kicking was invaluable. The new full-back in his first match was exoellent. Gunther did what he had to do well. Petersham Second met Granv...

Archdeacon Gunther, President of Parra matta Benevolent Society, on the subject of the operations of the Parramatta Benevolent Society, and especially as to itB financial position, which bas been latelv commented nn oy certain self-appointed critics in one or more sensation-loving journals. Our representative having stated his errand, Archdeacon Gunther said his attention had already been drawn to the matter.
