kenthubst. » A 8UBPBISE.' A wierd, bnt none the less enchant ing, Australian scene! A balmy, fine night in the Kentharst district ; with a flood of moonlight swathing the land scape as the grateful onlooker gazed from the site of the comfortable home steadawa; overthe leagues of Australian buBh. In the far distance, where the firmaments meet, the haze, of the season's bush-fires ; and from the same spot, drifting the heavy fumes so peculiar to the atmosphere when miles of scrub, and eucalpti and turpentine and wattle, are burning ; in the near distanoe, the half-cleared county sending forth its stimulating aromas from newly-turned soil, and from the indigenous fragrant vegetation. Before the visitor's gaze, the ample lawn to the east of the house, and flooding down from the Queen of | the heavens, the still beautious beams that mantle our landscanes when the heat and burden of the day are past, and humanity and the whole creation as well, luxuriate in rest and peace and full enjoyme...

A Protest Against Dancing. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 7 September 1895

A Protest Against Dancing. W. Lux (a new-comer to Parramatta) writes to us a long letter, in which he warns persons against letting their children and their wards go to dances and balls. We haven't room for such a long letter as our reader sends ; but we forward along tbe protest in some thing like the brief terms in which it should have been penned. Had Mr. Lux as much light in the matter ot tne claims on newspaper space as we would like him to have, he would have boiled down his contentions. Further, our correspondent promises, if we act up to his realisations in the matter of publishing tbe letter, to start along other ' arguments ' (which, by-the-bye, if the epistles on each side are to be as long as his is for a start, is a warning rather than an inducement). We are glad Mr. Lux is looking out for the care of the young ; but we would be sorry to use our columns for the pub lication of ' socials ' reports if we shared all hiB fears. We were accustomed to hear once that biB Satan...

CHARITY CONCERT. The second of the Charity Concerts was held on Tuesday !a*i — the committee of manage ment having decided to abandon the Saturday night scheme, which was found to be undesir able in view of the devotion of that particular evening to business. Mr. A. Steber kindly undertook the arrangement of the programme; and Mr. Massey gave his valuable services as accompanist. The attendance was rather larger than on the occasion of the first effort, ] though the gallery was less favored. The items produced were of a high order, and some of the first of our local amateurs (vocalists and instrumentalists) were included in the list of contributors. In the case of the majority of the nuifibers, encores were insisted on. Urs. Withers (Miss E. Holland) opened each section of the entertainment with one of her own waltz-compositions. The new ' Brassey ' Waltz --as the overture to part two — was eagerly looked, for, and the high expectations of the audience were realized ; Mrs. Withers' ...

A LETTER FROM F. WESTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 7 September 1895

A LETTER FKOM F. WESTON. I Lieutenant' Weston writes, under date 8th | of August, to a Parramatta friend, thusly: — 'Eeceived yours, last mail ; and hasten to re- j ply, as no excuse about uncertainty of carriage ' can avail me now ; for we have a bicycle mail ! through here once a week, which shows that the place shows no signs of decay at present. This spot, called TiriUs (which, iu native par lance, signifies 'quartz'), is situated about 140 miles N.N.E. of Coolgardie ; and compared j with the remainder of Australia (not W.A., . which is all alike) is a dreary and howling wilderness.

Spring Goods. MR. POLLOCK'S DRAPERY AND MILLINERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 7 September 1895

Spring Goods. MB. POLLOCK'S DRAPERY AND MILLINEBY. Our wives and daughters may do worse to-day, and during the week, than pay a visit to Mr. T. W. Pollock's far - famed drapery establishment, Church-street, Parramatta (and & few doors nearer the Courthouse than the Fbee Pbess Office). They will be well rewarded if they do ; for the enter prising proprietor of Victoria House has just opened his Spring Goods, and the novelties he now displays in his b~ig windows, in the natty sliow-rooms be hind the shop, and elsewhere, can hardly fail, we think, to charm the heart of the average lady shopper.

A lift and force pump, with powerful air chamber arrangement and lever handle for forcing the water or spray, is so arranged that when in operation the machine is quite steady, while the fluid may be thrown in any desired direction, and with force either to make a fine spray or throw a stream twenty or more feet high. Nozzles for regulating the force are attached. The machine has the merit of costing but little, while the wearing parts are made of metals that resist the action of acids and other spray mixtures. The Smith sprayer has come to notice at a good 1 time, either- for watering or for destroy- j iug insects, and deserves to come exten sively into use.
