"A Dear Luxury." [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 2 August 1881
"A Dear Luxury." TOD pounds a day is not bad wages for a cook. Yet such a sum it has cost Mr. Fry for the luxury of badly cooked viotuals. It appears that in March last Mr. Fry's agent in Sydney advertised for and engaged a female cook, who was supposed to bene plus, vltra in the kitchen, and the wages were fixed at thirty shillings a week, and travel ling expenses. The engagement was for three months, and our townsman was con gratulated upon having secured the services of such a gem. She arrived, and at once set to work. day, however, the boarders dinner looked at one another, but none were particularly hungry, and the consumption of food that day was not large.

Moat of us are fairly acquainted, with the proverbial ostrich's digestion, but few would expect the following gastronomic abilities on the part of a humble dairy cow, that for a long time has been in the habit of graz ing on the green flat at the rear of St. John's Oburch of England, Lako Maequaria Road. In mentioning the circumstance, readers may rest assured that the incident is actual fact, and not based on hearsay. On Thurs day afternoon a resident thereabouts, who bad from time to time missed small articles of clothes from the lines, went out to see how ber morning's " washing" was getting on. Picture " the expression of ber eyes" on seeing the cow alluded to quietly ewollowing a pair of useful female integu ments, and then commence upon a night gown which hung upon a line.
