No title [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 6 February 1894

According to an official report of Captain von Francois, tho dromedaries which have been intro duced into the German territories in south-west Africa in connection with the parcel post service bave more than fulfilled the expectations that had been formed about them. The climate suits them, and tbev are not affected by any of the prevalent cattle diseases. On the road between Lehuititang and Geinab, they did not seem to be very thirsty. In stony regions their feet do not, like unshod horses or oxen, suffer any injury. When loaded with a weight of 250lbs., a dromedary advances at much tho same rate as an ox waggon. The only draw-back connected with theBe useful creatures is that they are rather costly.

West Maitland Volunteer Rifle Club. On Saturday last the members of the ' B ' Company commenced a series of matches, ending in July next. It waB decided in this match to pick aides, Captain Sloan having won first choice against Color-Sergeant Morris, scores to count, without handicaps, and a very close contest resulted, there being only one point in difference. This being the first match fired under tbe new regulations, that is with sights as issued, the result was rather low scores ; the wind at times was also very treacherous for. good shooting : — 500 yds. 600 yds.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. THE OFFICE OF ALDERMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 6 February 1894

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. ' THE OFFICE OF ALDERMAN. Sir, — We have now come to the end of the pre sent municipal year, and dining this week rate payers everywhere will be called upon to elect aldermen to the vacancies created by the annual retirement. The last meeting of the West Mi.it land Borough Council was, apparently, from your report, held on Friday evening in verv har-r-v sur roundings. Indeed, if anyone had dropped into the council chamber towards the end of the meet ing he would have had no difficulty in imagining that he had suddenly got into s. mutual admiration society. For aldermen were saying nice things about each other. It is only a few nights ago since, in a neighbouring municipality, I heard one of the members of a borough council remark ' that as a rule aldermen for their paine received more kicks than halfpence.' A good deal of truth as well as much meaning is convened in these words. No body of public men is subject perhaps to more abuse than aidermen. and why, I a...

MARIGOLD. CHAPTER VIII. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 6 February 1894

MARIGOLD. CHAPTER VIII. When Marigold recovers consciousness she finds Harold and the kindly faced matron bending above ner. She seizes the hand of the latter. ' You look kind ; will you do one favour for a breaking heart— will you kill me ?' she sobs. 'My dear, it iB very unnatural to desire death when one is so young and fair as you,' falters the macron, who in the next moment is signalled by Manning to leave the room. The good woman goes reluctantly. ' I dislike to leave that flower-faced child alone with that man. There is a look in his eyes, when they rest upon her, that makes me tremble,' she murmurs. ' 'Why bave you dono this cruel thing ?' Marigold sobs, as she and Manning are left alone. ' There was no other way to wrench the love for this man out of your heart,' he rejoins. ' He was on. ticket of leave when he won your love ; but the authorities deemed him too dangerous to be abroad, even on parole, and so recalled him on the very morning of his bridal,' he continues.

Meatworks at Broadsound. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 6 February 1894

Meatworks at Broadsound. In view of the fact that the Broad=ound Boiling down and Meat Export Company is to commence operations on the 22nd January (says the Bock hampton Bulletin), the following history of the venture and description of the works supplied by one intimately acquainted with them will be of interest :— ' In the early part of 1892 it was de cided by the squatters in this district to try to float a meat export company in Gladstone, but after immense personal efforts on the part of a few of the promoters, the project had to be abandoned. The only other resource left was to try to float a small company locally; and a few determined and energetic men, in face of the terrible financial smash, pursued the project with unabated ardour, with the result that a small com pany, consisting of about thirty members, floated and registered what is now known as the Broadsound Boiling-down and Meat Export Company. The capital is £3000 in £1 shares. After much difficulty and trouble a s...

THE RYLESTONE AND CASSILIS ELECTORATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 6 February 1894

THE RYLESTONE AND CASSILIS ELECTORATE. Sir, — Would it not be more manly on the part of the elector signing himself 'Rylestone,' in your last Friday's issue, to honestly put his name to his effusion when taking me to task re my letter in your columns on the Cassilis electorate; but it would seem those who wish to descry my humble endeavours to stir up a spirit of emulation among the electors only can stab in the dark. By-the-bye, sir, I think you are responsible for heading my last letter ' Casailie Electorate,' a3 I do not recollect heading it all; however, if 'Rylestone' had noimng else to complain ot ms labour is lost. But, sir, I still contend that my assumption that the interests of Rylestone and Cassilis are diametrically opposed is correct, as in the first place they should never have been joined in one electorate, and, {suuoudly, having been so joined by the geographical ignorance of the district by the Co-nmissioners, and the want of interest in this part of the old elector...

Curiosities of Alcoholism. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 6 February 1894

Curiosities of Alcoholism. Afc the recent meeting of the Study of the Inebriety Society Dr. T. L. Wright, of Ohio, read a paper on the ' Special Influences of Alcohol,' moral and otherwise. Among other things, he men tioned some curious facts connected with the habits of what may be called ' alcohol thieves.' It is re cognised by alcohol specialists that certain persons almost invariably try to steal when arunK wno snow no tendency to theft at any other time. Nofc only so, bufc the alcohol thief very generally ' goes for' some particular object when the thieving mania is upon him. One man, for example, when drunk, showed a uniform partiality for Bibles. He stole Bibles invariably when he could get at them. Another had a precisely similiar passion for 6pades. A young man, who presumably had been previously unkown afc the police court, stole a horse when drunk, and thafc in the presence of its owner. As he rode off with the animal, ho told his name and address to pereons whom he met o...
