A DIAMOND HOLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 4 October 1884
A DIAMOND HOLE. The diamond is a brilliant tiling, but the place it conies from is dismal enough. A traveller recently from South Africa gives an account of the diamond mine once called New Bush on account of the crowds of dia mond seekers who poured in after the first discovery. The mine is situated in the midst of a plateau, high, wide, and bai-ren, and consists of nothing more than " an on'-, ormeus hole nine acres in extent." This hole is about four hundred feet deep, and visitors seldom decoud into it on account of the dirt and danger. It is from this disagreeable aperture that the gems are brought which glitter and sparkle upon the persons of lovely women. At Penrith bread is procurable at 2.$d. for tha 21b loaf. ' £834 per ton realised in London for ore from the Lubra mine, Silverton. Out of a total of 23,339 newspapers in the world, 13,378 are printed in the English language. The chairman of the Gnndagai Progress Com mittee says that municipalities aro expensivo toys. Increa...

OUR SYDNEY LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 4 October 1884
OUR SYDNEY LETTER. We have jnst fairly entered upon tho season when school picnics nnd excursions are tho order of tho day, and, as a necessary conse quence, the streets of Sydney are beginning to assume a more animated appearance than they have presented during the past few months. Almost every day a crowd of juven i ile excursionists may bo seen wending their way either to the railway station or tho Cir cular Quay en route for one or other of tho pleasure groundsnp the line or down the harbour, all dressed in holiday attire, and wearing that peculiar expression of satisfac tion which school children only can assume on such an occasion as that of a day's pic •nicking. The sight of so many little ones turning out to enjoy themselves inevitably recalls to ono's mind the happy days of childhood when the trials and difficulties of after life were yet unknown, and when in the simplicity of early youth no misfortune seemed greater than the schoolmaster's re proof, and no joy could surpas...

Do as adversaries do in law, Strive mightily, hit eat and drink its friends. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 4, 1884. One of tlio resolutions passed at a reoent j sitting of the intercolonial sanitary con- j ference was that the word " Australasian" I should bo substituted for " intercolonial;" therefore let us introduce the original council with its new name. One of the Aus tralasian sanitary conference's discussions was concerning the Coolies and Chinese, who ■were cursed with that rovoltiug disease, leprosy. All the plagues of Egypt put together would not be so appalling as ft visitation of this loathsome malady. Now, " although we have heard of hordes of Mon golians in filthy dens beiug the viotims of the deadly and horrible tortures lepers suffer, yet the awful pestilence has never been communitated to Europeans. It seems that leprosy is the direot penance of disgusting and vitiated habits, arid through being highly contagious it might be caught by the cleanest and strongest person if contac...
