District News. Bringelly. [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 19 March 1896
District News. Bringelly. f FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] . . The district has not, looked so well' f«r ' years, and .things in general portend to a plentiful harvest, which is very cheering to those dependent on an existence directly from the products of the soil. The beautiful weather we are getting now seems like an oa'sis in the desert after the exceptionally dry and hot times we have lately had; everywhere we look the eye is refreshed, and we doubt whether the aspect at present could be surpassed in beauty even by the tints and shades of 'the Emerald Isle. The usual meeting of the Bringelly Temperance Society was again held on Sat urday evening, February 29tii . There not being much amusement in this small place the temperance meetings are looked forward to by the young people, as they are a source of a little enjoyment, (admission being free to all) and take the . form of an entertain ment, mostly consisting of music, songs, recitations, and other items, to fill up the evening....

Fruit Culture. [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 19 March 1896
[?] ' ! By M R. H. S. The more I s^ .pf the' Camden and Cum berland districts Hifap. morel fpe firmly con vinced of their future prospects both in agricultural and in fn^t growing ; the latter especially. This applies more particulary to the districts adjoining Camden, Oxton Park, Luddenham, Liverpool, Cecil Park, and other districts in the immediate vicinity. I observe particlarly that wherever there is good cultivation first class crops are the result; this is not the exception but the rule. I regret, however, to state that the cul tivators of the soil are not sufficiently diligent ; from conversation with growers in the district under observation, I find they are most careless in the manner of taking care of their trees from insect pests, no care whateyer is taken to prevent the ultimate distraction of their trees and Consequently the loss of fruit in its season. Some say' its no use keeping the land clean amongst fruit trees, because fruit growing does not pay.' I sometimes, how...
Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 19 March 1896
Notes. The i*eiitarks made by the Mayor of Camden (Alderman D. Rankin) at the declaration of the poll of the Aldermanic election on Saturday last -were most timely, and to the pointy aiid it must be considered by the ratepayers as casting a very seriouB reflection on their want of attention in Municipal matters, and a decided want of apathy on the' part of those whose duties it is to see that Camden is well go-vawned, and governed by gentlemen who have- the pros perity and health of Camden at heart. It is certainly most discouraging to the Alder Etien to See that their efforts are Unap preciated, seldom indeed (and this fact we have pointed 6ut on several occasions) a .Single ratepayer attends their fort .. nightly deliberations, and it must be said, ?without flattery, that the Aldermen to a man are painstaking to a fault, conscientious in the interests of the ratepayers, and fully impressed with their important responsible positions. There is no denying this assertion, and only tho...

Light, Light, More Light. [To the Editor.] [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 19 March 1896
light., Light, More Light. . fTo the EditorJ Sir,-— The result of the recent Municipal election, and the tremendous fall of rain on Sunday, have come very opportunely to the support of those who have not been favorable, to a water supply scheme being pressed forward under present circumstances. There is, evidently, no desire on the part of the majority of the town people to incur a liability under which the Grown Solicitor might, some day, lay an embargo on our rates, as at Goulburn, Bathurst, and at several other places, and so cripple other necessary undertakings. If the council would lay aside the water question just now, and take up a modest scheme of lighting, either by oil, or electricity, they would meet with general approval. Those who are so terribly alarmed at the idea of a 'Uit lander' setting up poles to earry wires in our sacred streets, could vote for kerosene liglits on corporation lamps posts. We don't want any great things — the public house lights leave little to b...

A case of Nervous Prostration resulting from Indigestion. [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 19 March 1896
A case of ITe'rvous Prostration resulting from Indigestion. They say that, misery loves company, and they have had it so often it has passed into a proverb. Yet it isn't an all-round, truth.; They want to be left alone. They hate to be elbowed aud questioned and talked to. A wounded dog will always crawl into some retired place by itself. The iustiuct of badly injured men, after a battle is the | same. Ailments that are mostly fancy, tend to set tongues wagging, .out real, genuine ana dangerous diseases don't incite to' speech. Crises which are big with fate usually come and go in quiet. That is why Mrs. Scuffham had no desire for tho society of eyen her best friends at a certain time she is going to tell us about. ' Up'to^April. 1881,' she writes ' T never knew what it was^to be ill. At that time I began to feel that something was. amiss with me. I had no relish for my meals, a^nd after eating, my chest felt heavy and painful,, and my heart would beat ..and thump as though it meant...
Land Tax Meeting in Camden. [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 19 March 1896
Land Tax Meeting in Camden. One of the most important meetings ever held in Camden was held at the Mounted Rifles Drill Hall on Wednesday afternoon. To show the importance attending the sub ject of the Land Tax, and to arrive at a fair and honest value of the ' unimproved value' of the land of the district adjoining the township of Camden, over 200 land owners of the district attended tho meeting and took part in the discussion. Major Onslow was unanimously voted to the chair. The Major pointed out in opening the proceedings that the object of the meeting was to have the opinions and come to some conclusion as to the estimated value of the land from an unimproved point of view. He pointed out expressly that he desired to eliminate from the meeting any discust-ioa on politics, but, to go straight to the main point at issue. The meeting, composed solely of laud owners, was from the first alow in speech, making the subject seeming one of great importance, and necessarily one requiring ...
Forecasting the Weather. [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 19 March 1896
Forecasting the Weather. A simple means of forecasting the weather from aborning cup of coffee is given by the 'Leeds Jj'efcfary,' which asserts that it has proved more trustworthy than the official guesses. Drop two lumps of sugar care fullv into the middle of the cup : if the air bubbles remain iu the centre of thecapit will be fine; if they rise rapidly and go at once to the sides it. will rain all day; if they gather in the centre and then go in a cluster' to one side, look out for showers. One of the swiftest runners in the animal creation is the kangaroo. A farmer figured it out one rainy day that he had walked 100 miles in cultivating 10 acres of corn. He thereupon sold his farm and moved to town, where be walked 200 miles to find a job. '
