Our Graft on Letter. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 5 April 1898
Our Grafton Letter. The Show. — Tho show just over no doubt was a credit to Grafton and district. The unanimous opinion is that it was the best ever held here, and as far as my rocollection goes I thoroughly agree with that opinion. The number and quality of the exhibits inside the pavilion was unequalled and in this connection a word ol prai6o is due to Miss Mary Sinclair of Maclean, who carried off Biddells £3 3s for best collection of cakes, etc, frum amongst eight first-class competitors. The principal iioms of interest in the pavilion were Paling and Co. collection of musical instruments and tho Singer Sowing Machine Co's art ex hibit, also Mr. Beadott's humorous sketch 'The burial of tho cow question.' Tho latter 'caught on' immonsoly, bspecially as the characters de picted nro so woll-known locally. Mr. Beadett will probably exhibit tho picture in the non competitive section at tho Maclean show. The takings at tho gates amounted to £142 Ms 2d, and what with ontranco foos, boo...

My first impulse upon reading samo was to quostion evory state ment contained thoroiu, but whon I camo to think over it, I concludod that ' Southornito' has no businass disputing with such a matchless logician and sublime philosopher, as tho follow iug quotation proves tho Giur man to bo : — ' Exporionco touches mo that tho Prornior has taken a wise atop iu removing the sugar duty, for this is tho only way to decrease tho great, returns obtained by tho capitalist from tho hard toil of tbo farmors.' Yo gods ! If poor ' Sou h ornito' was a canegrowor and found that tho Co. reduced tho prico of cauo 2s por ton for evory £1 takon oil tho sugar duty, ho would have saitl that exporiouca taught him that the removal of tln- sugar duty was a direct loss t...
