Typhoid in Parramatta. INTERVIEWING THE DOCTORS. Ik consequence of the reports which have been circulated in reference to the spread of typhoid in Parramatta, we considered it right to make some enquiries to place tbo matter pro perly before the public. Accordingly, in order to arrive at a proper approximation of the number of cases, we interviewed tho medical gentlemen of Parramatta during the week ana ODtamea irom tnem a statement; or tne cases they were treating and tho causes of the sickness. Dr. Smith's report was the most alarming, but the five euses that he hadnn hand are not serious and have been under Jhis attention for some time. Altogether there is nothing sensational in any of the reports, al though possibly somo of our sensation-loving aldermen will stir up some excitement, Dr. Waugh states that he has only two old cases on hand in Dixon -street, the patients being brothers. The Parramatta water lias nothing to do with the sickness, the doctor states, but it might be at...

The Era of Revolution. TO THE EDfTOB OF THE CUMBEBLAXD AKOUS.. Sir, — On every hand are the enemies of free dom, Custom meets us at tho cradlo and leaves us only at the grave. Wo aro pushed and dragged by all the conuHoss hands of fate along the beaten, track, and our only freedom is that of suppression. Tho Cosars of our day are as unapproachable as tho Cscsars of old. It is not my intention to enter into a wail of lamentations, Sir, but to ask your kind permis sion for the publication of the newer gospel of redemption — Land Nationalisation by nieans of tho Single Tax. To most minds the name is Company anything but new, as Land Nationalists in this sunny south now number some thousands. There is a confusion which seems to havo arisen in the reasoning powers of some, and profit may be derived from its discussion. The con fusion referred to is the inconsistency of a Land Nationalist styling himself a Protection ist and the Land Nationalist who says he is a disbeliever in the Single ...

The Kurrajong Orangeries. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 20 April 1889
The Kurrajong Orangeries. Fruitgrowers of Central Cumberland have realised during tho past ono or two seasons that in tho Kurrajong orehardists they have to compete against men who aro learning how to grow good fruit. It seems a strange thing to say, but there are a oouple of retail fruit dealers in Pavramatta who will astonish you by handinjr you a first-class orango with tho remark 'That is from tho Kurrajong, sir.' Fancy fruit dealers in Parramatta sroinsr all tho way to the Kurrajong for their fruit, when it is lying around their own district, sometimes in hundreds of eases under the fruit trees, or upon the trees ripe enough to bo picked, if a market were available. ?::? ?::? -:t Two things account for this. First, the Kurrajong fruit, grown in the valleys, comes in very early, while tho mountain fruit winds up tho season ; nnd, second, the Kurrajong grower has a more business-liko way of dis BnIIen posing of his produce, and seems content to jog along with a fair profit. ?:;. ...
