LATE GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 9 February 1894
LATE GENERAL NEWS. The South Australian police authorities, by order of the Government, have forbidden the sale o£ children's surprise packets under the Gambling Prevention Act. A man in the District Court, Sydney, yesterday, pleaded that he could not pay a debt because ho was hard up, so much so in fact that he would have to drown hi3 dog, as he could not afford to pay the fee for its registration. Lily Andrews, a bright little girl of 7, travelled overland alone from Sydney to Adelaide, there to join the German steamer Gera, but on her arrival the lady who was to chaperone her found that she had neither a ticket nor the name and address of the relations in England to whom she was con signed. The child was provisionally handed over to the State Children's Department. A Sydney firm has introduced a scene which for novelty and originality certainly takeB the palm. Two aboriginals (natives of New South Wales) have been camping for the past few days in the novelty window, and. have bui...

A Visit to Coonamble. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 9 February 1894
A Visit to Coonamble. [By Rambler.'] I have just returned from one of my periodical visits to Coonamble, and I herewith present you with my latest impressions concerning this pro gressive and improving municipality. Like all the rest of the up-country towns of the colony, this ' Queen of the Castlereagh ' has latterly passed through a period of unwonted depression, from which, however, it is now slowly but surely recovering. The hotels appear to be the principal sufferers at this juncture ; and yet great improve ments are going on in respect to them, and one more (the Victory) has been added to their number. One often marvels at the insistent and persistent vitality of the licensed victualling interest. Nothing seems to affect it permanently to its hurt. The emergence of boarding-houses, the growth of Good Teniplary, the settling down and steadying of the floating population, make no perceptible differ ence to its status quo. Other enterprises lapse and come to nought, but this ente...

[?] TFeom the Pbess Telegraph Association.] London, Thursday. The Admiralty has given order3 for building at Newcastle-on-Tyne several torpedo boat destroyers immediately. The Premier of Nova Scotia had given, notice of. motion to authorise a memorial to the Queen, praying for the abolition of the Canadian Upper House.

DISTRICT NEWS. [From our Correspondenis.] WAtLCHA. A meeting for the public nomination of aldermen was held in the School of Arts on Tuesday, when a large number o£ ratepayers attended. Mr. S. j Farrell, Returning Officer, read the nominations received, which included Messrs. Jas. Marshall, A. J. Smith, W. R. H. Scott, R. Flanders, and W. H. Bath. As there are only two vacancies the polling day was fixed for the 10th insfc. The various can didates addressed the meeting, the chief efforts of the oratory being as usual, to show by criticism the unfitness of the present and past holders of offices, and the peculiar fitness of each speaker. A keen contest is anticipated. Messrs. Mackenzie and Johnston were elected auditors. A meeting of landowners will be held here on Saturday to consider the question of land taxation. This is the first of a series of intended meetings throughout the New England district, the object apparently being concerted action in this important matter. An interest...

Ander son) occupied the chair. The night was an incle ment one and the attendance was small.

TAREE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 9 February 1894
TAHEE. Fine and warm weather has prevailed for the last few days and it is hoped ifc will continue for some time, as sufficient rain lias fallen for the grass and growing crops. Inconsequence of rough weather prevailing along the coast the s.s. Electra was detained in Taree for about a week, and as soon as the agitated waters assumed a calmer aspect she took her departure for Sydney. While she waa detained in Taree, the Captain and men (23 in all) played a game of cricket against a Taree eleven, and were defeated by five runs. Some of the Electra men exhibited curious styleB with the bat, though some few who were a little more experienced, succeeded in pasting the leather over the boundary several times, and then obtained a very good score. A new style of bowling was also shown, which somewhat puzzled the Taree men. Immense interest was taken in the game, as over one hundred persons congregated to view this novel match, and they appeared to be well satisfied as they highly appreciat...

MARIGOLD. CHAPTER X.— (-Continued.) ' There is something between tho3e two,' Bhe laminates; and the pity o£ it ia Marigold never divines her suspicions until too late. When next the young girl meets the doctor she , ia relieved to see that his manner is unchanged, and it iB not for days that he mentions his new patient. Then he takes her hand, and for a moment looks searchingly into her beautiful, frightened eyes. 'Marigold,' he says, lowly, 'there is a mys terious patient under my roof. If he did not come '.. Touched for by the highest authority, I should say that is a sane man. His one cry is for you.' 'I will not go to him!' gasps Marigold, her white lips trembling pitcously. 'What have you to fear from him?' almost sternly demands the doctor. ' You must help me eolve this mystery. Come with mo.' Marigold dare not disobey. She never knows how she reaches the cell. She only knows that she would have dropped did not the doctor's strong hand uphold her. In all his life, so full of s...
