Friday Superstitions. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 6 April 1889

Friday Superstitions. Eggs laid on Friday will, it is said, never decay, aud will, if eaten, cure the colic. ' A Friday tree' is a saying used iu Eng land to characterise 6onie misfortune or trial. Journeys were rarely undertaken on Friday during the last century in many European countries. Iu 1790, no- merchant of London would begin a voyage or undertake a new enterprise on Friday. In North Germany, it is said that witches obtain power over the person who goes out unwashed ou Friday. In Devonshire, it was thought a good day to plant crops, and in other places to com mence weaning children. Medieval romances assert that fairies are, on Friday, turned into hideous animals, remaining so until Monday. Friday is, according to the Welsh, Irish, and Scotch, a day consecrated to the fairies, who then can do much mischief. A Dutch wife will, if she can, obtain a ring that is made from old nails during mass ou Friday, lay it upou the gospels, and . say a paternoster. : It was not a proper oc...

A Lady Millionaire. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 6 April 1889

A Lady Millionaire. Birmingham has just lost one of her wealthiest and most benevolent citizens by the death of Miss Louisa Ryliuid, who left property (says the Birmingluwi Post) valued at £2,000,000. The deceased, who was 75 years of age, is described as ' one -ot; tlie kindest, and best, and most senerouB of women.' She belonged to an old and honorable family, formerly associated with 'a staple trade in the town — that of wiredraw ing — by which H£r grandfather amassed a considerable fortune. Shu was an only child, and although her parents were Unitarians sho was brought up in the com munion of the Church of England, to which she remained u faithful adherent. After her father's death, Miss Rylaud built a singuluriy beautiful church at Suerhorne, and iis the owner of allifihcrborne parish and a large part of Barford, she fulfilled the part of a true Lady Bountiful.

Camden Haven. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 6 April 1889

Camion Haven. (from oub correspondent.) The long spell of dry weather is at last broken, and during the post week we had some beautiful rain, which was badly wanted, more for watering purposes than for grass, the waterholea in the bush and paddocks being almost dry. Had not the rain oome things would have been serious, for teamsters were complainine very much for some time post at tho scanty supply of water ; but I think their wants are supplied for some timo to come. Most of our farmers are busy pulling corn, which is, I am glad to say, turning out better than was expected, and it is to be hoped that the weather will now take up for awhile until it is all pulled. The late eorn has a slight touch of thtt blight, but is not likely to affect it nearly eo much as last year. Mr. Jackson has started business as. a storekeeper at the stables. He is, I believe, doing well. He is well liked among the people, and, besides being a steady business man, his_prices are reasonable. I wish him eve...
