REMARKABLE MASONIC INCIDENT. I (Pall Mall Gazette J The first Masonic funeral that ever occured in California took placo in 1849, and was performed over a brother found drowned in the Bay of San Francisco. An account of the coromonies states that on tho body of the doceased was found a silver mark of a Mason, upon which was engraved the initials of his liamo. A little further . investigation revealed to the beholder tho most singular exhibition of Masonic emblems that was evor drawn by the ingenuity of man upon tho human skin. There is nothing in the history of traditions of Freo Masonry equal to it. Beautifully dotted on his left arm in red and blue ink, which time could not ef face, appoarod all the emblems of his entire apprenticeship. There wero the Holy Bible square and compass, the twenty-four inch guage, and tho common gavel.

CORN CULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 18 December 1877

CORN CULTURE. The best lands for corn are such as contain a deep, rich, mellow soil. It must be such a soil as will permit tho air to circulate freely through it, and the growing plants to ex tend their fine roots in every direction with out hindrance. Our river bottoms of loamy and sandy grounds possess these required peculiarities, and hence are usually tho most suitable lands ior corn, l^rtirio regions pro duco fine corn under favourable circum stances, but they are not so cortain as river bottoms. Thoy produce a better corn than tho bottoms do, .perhaps, for tho grains are heavier, but the yield per aero is not apt to be near so largo. For corn tho ground cannot possibly bo too rich, nor can it bo too thoroughly pul verised. It needs deep working — thoro is no ' tap root' thoory to interpose in the caso of corn. Tho time for planting will depend upon circumstances. Thero is no uso plant ing corn in cold ground to lio an unnatural length of timo boforo coming up. Nothing is gaine...

Tho mooting was hold at the Albion Hotel on Wednesday evening last. Mr. R. Jones was voted to tho chair. Mr. W. A. Hai'ploy said ho believed the only place whore a good supply could be obtained was trom Hurley s springs. By sinking a, bout twenty-five foot an excellent and constant supply for the town could bo obtained. At present there was a. large draught from the springs by tho navvies ; but for ordinary purposes there would be plenty. Messrs.

WAGGA WAGGA. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 18 December 1877

WAGGA WAGGA. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT. ) The reaction consequent Upon tho excite ment of the race week has been sensibly felt, although not in tho same degree as during previous years, and our town has again as sumed its ordinary aspect after having swal lowed the bitter pill of disappointment pre sented by the meagre attendance of visitors to our annual carnival. That this disap poinment already has, or in all .probability soon will produce effects, which from a com mercial point of view ? must be deemed dis astrous, is the prediction of nearly all our gossips and quidnuncs , and I mention the rumour without identifying myself with it, simply because it is my duty to report to you what is going on. Notwithstanding the limited number of frequentors both on the course and in town, publicans and store keepers did fairly well, and though per chance their most ardent anticipations were in no instance realised, yet they .do not au dibly grumble, but generally blame ' the bad season,' whic...

CONCERT AT MURRUMBURRAH. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 18 December 1877

CONCERT AT MURRUMBURRAH. A musical and dramatic entertainment was given on Wednesday evening at the School room in aid of the funds of the Murrum burrah Cricket Club. The intention of the promoters was, as far as practicable, to con fine the performers to the members of the club, which circumstance accounted for the ' conspicuous absence' of the names of the fair sex in the programme. One acception, however, had to be made in favour of an accompanist, and the committee are to be congratulated on their, success in obtaining the services of such a talented pianiste as Mrs. J. Anstey. This lady/ we understand, has recently arrived at Murrumburrah, principally with the intention of following her profession as a teacher of music and the pianoforte, and never has the southern dis trict seen a preceptor more qualified. With a_ vast Knowledge ana experience of the di vine art acquired in England and on the continent, she combines an accuracy, a gracefulness, and a rapidity of manipulation w...

POETRY. IN HARVEST-TIME. Fkoii the reddening forest Drop the yellow leaves ; Sturdy reapers merrily Are binding up the sheaves. - Yonder goes the laden wain, Rumbling on its way, Shaking like a jovial host That makes his toil a play. Strings of birds are winging Their way aerosa the sky ; And on upland spaces The colours glow and die. The mists are on the distance ; But like a polished shield, Hit by a thousand lances, Lies one unsickled field.

TO MELBOURNE AND BACK OVERLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 18 December 1877

TO MELBOURNE AND BACK OVER LAND. fS. M. Herald, ) As the Southern Railway is now open to Cootamundra, a distance of 258 miles from Sydney, many people are probably under the impression that the journey overland be tween our own metropolis and Melbourne must have been much -shortened arid made far more pleasant to travellers. Influenced by that idea, and still more by a desire to see and learn as much as possible of our great interior, I was tempted last week to make the overland trip and to return this week by a different . route. Perhaps some account of the trip and of the country passed through may be interesting and use ful to 'others. 1 The mail train leaves . Redferri station daily (Sundays excepted) at twenty minutes past six o'clock in the evening. On reach ing the station the first thing I inquired for was the new slcoping-tcar, for if such a con venience is wanted any where surely it is on the longest line arid for the night train. No sleeping- ear, however, was to be seen,...
