American Novelties. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 6 April 1889
American Novelties. Mechanics and others employed in iron factories frequently suffer some an noyance and no little pain from the ac cidental introduction into the eye of particles of steel, iron filings, etc. All persons engaged in work of this kind should carry with them magnets, tho use of which rareh' fails to remove the foreign body. A man in Lonvale, Ga., drove a piece of steel filing into his eve ball a few days ago, aud a surgeon spent seme time in vain endeavours to extract it. Finally he brought a power ful electro magnet to his aid, by means of which the offensive particle was at once removed. It was over a quarter of an inch long, and its, entire length had been embedded in the eyeball. A jar of corn lias been unearthed near Yuma. Arizona, that gives evidence of having been buried in the ground for centuries. Upon breaking tho sealed top it was found to bo filled with corn, weighing about 30lbs. The corn was snow white, and the kernels large and extremely tender. The cor...
Some Notes about the Conference. FRUITGROWERS IN CONCLAVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 6 April 1889
Some Notes about the Conference. FRUITGROWERS IN CONCLAVE. There is nothing remarkable about the opening of the Fruitgrowers' Con ference the other day. With a stranger to the business of opening the proceed ings, there would nrobablv have been some minutes of anxious f ussiness and fiddling about for this or that, but the worthy President had 'been there be fore.' ' Nowi then, Mr. Whitaker.' he said, 'it's 12 oclock. We must be punctual,' and without any further ado, before the stolid old growers could realise that the great 'feast' was about to commence, Mr. Lackey was intoning the preliminaries, explaining the course of proceedure, and ' hum-drumming ' the motions on notice. Then the music changed, and he broke off to felicitate the Conference, expressing pleasure at the representative gathering, and conclu ding with hopes as to 'good fruit,' which was the first joke perpetrated, but afterwards 'perpetuated' through out the sittings. *.fr A As one whose business demanded his pres...

The Fruitgrowing Industry. No. II. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 6 April 1889
Tlie Fruitgrowing Industry. No. II. The want of adequate marketing conveniences is tho chief drawback to to fruitgrowing' in tho colony. It is a cause of very deep complaint, and has only not been more loudly heard because the supply not having yet en tirely overtaken tho demand, iho grow ers have secured remunerative prices. But this stuto of tilings will soon end, probably next year, Jif the season is favourable ; and then it will be incum bent on tin1 grower either to savo ex pense in tho disposal of fruit or seek for an enlargement of consumption. To obtain the latter it will bo necessary to bring the grower and consumer together, without the intervention of middle men; and it is impossible to realise what in crease of consumption might bo brought about if tho general public could pur chase at present wholesale prices. This method has partially succeeded fairly well in the Goorge-storot market ; but it is carried out on much too small a scale to bo of benefit to tho now fast gro...

I might mention that the business papers issued state £!- 6s ;per lamp, and tho Council cannot legally alter the resolution without fresh notices. . — Yours, etc., HENRY T. JONES.

The Fruitgrowing Industry. No. III [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 13 April 1889
Tne Fruitgrowing Industry. No. III. For many years we have isolated re cords of oranges being safely carried to Europe. But only during this last few /jj -ears have shipments been made with. ft the view of testing the British markets, and studying and bringing to light the difficulties incidental to the inaugura tion of a trade in a new article of ex port. The experiments have eminently brought to surface the difficulties, but none which is insurmountable. The points to be arrived at were— 1. Stage of ripeness when the fruit should bo picked. 2. Month in which fruit should arrive in England. 3. How to gather, prepare, wrap, and pack. 4. Kind of packing-case. 5. How it should be shipped in Sydney and disposed of in London at a profit; and 6. How it should be carried. All these points, except the last, have been satisfactorily solved ; and this last does not rest with the fruitgrower. The results may be set down as fol low : 1 .

Mr. Byrnes and the Fiscal Policy. TO THE EDITOIl 01' THE CUMDEKLAXD AKGUS. Sir, — I crave room for even another ' rejoinder,' as I think — and no doubt many of your readers think — Mr. Byrnes has asked for it in his letter of tho 6th inst. Ho takes exception to tho word ' rejoinder,' as applied to my first letter. Thus I quote ' Ogilvie's Dictionary,' in proof that the words ' reply 'and ' rejoinder are almo.st, if not ijuitu synoimnous : so that 1113' mistake, if it twists, is not only (as Mr. Byrnes says) 'slight,' but so [slight as to be hardly noticeable : — ' Eojoinder, n. . Something joined on to ; an answer to a reply ; an answer or reply.' 'Eeply, v.i. : To fold back, to mate a return in wards to something said or icritlen ly an other ; to rejoin ? ' The allusion to 'sleeping dogs' seems silly and unneeded. Iu tho first place, I was too much in earnest to at tempt sarcasm. And who cares about the 'dogs,' waking or sleeping ? Cer tainly not conscientious Freetraders, who are ...

Bowden, the Parramatta District Coroner, held an inquest at Auburn, touching the death of n married woman named Hannah Green, who died on Friday last under peculiar circum stances.
