DUNDAS. Theresidence of Aid. Frankspiesented a busy soene on Friday, when about 60 guests responded to invitations to a birthday party in honor of two of the genial alderman's fair daughters.

The Dundas band attended and played in the lawn for a time ; the dining-room and spacious verandahs were cleared, and illuminated with Chinese lanterns and suoh like ; and the fun was kept up until morning, dancing, games, and singing making the time pass only too quickly. The Messrs Sonter supplied good music, and it is needless to say there was no stint in the wav of refreshments. Mr. T*n Duohateau (of Carlingford Minstrel fame) helped to keep the company in the best of humour with his oomicalities, and altogether the a&ir was voted one of the most enjoyable held for many a long day. .

A Nurse's Funeral. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 14 September 1895
A Nurse's Funeral. On a dry spring afternoon — with the warm Australian sunlight streaming down through the smoke-stained air, and with the cool breezes darting hither and thither, as if dumbly preying for a mission to bring up the rain olouds from the South, a sad, but orderly pro oession moved quietly along from the blook of Government buildings in north-west Parra matta towards the little burying-plaee on the slopes of Sherwood Park. It was the cortege following to her last resting-place Norse Keily, of the H.I. staff. Reverently, quietly— without ostentation— without the slightest suspicion of an attempt to attract foreign attention — with onij mat aignuy mat remained, caugnt up from the spirit and tone of the institution juBt left, ihe imposing body of mourners moved up the hill, into O'Connell-street. Little recked the outer world — of business, social, street-life Parramatta — of the pathos of the silent throng slowly passing down the stony lane, past the frost-burnt lawns of...
FARM AND ORCHARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 14 September 1895
FARM AND ORCHARD. Manubing in Day Weathee. — Ex- cellent results are got, and at little cost and oatlay, by manuring with boiling down stuff, and other ' natural man ures,' while the soil is dry. Amongst citrus and other fruit trees it can be ; done by chipping the surface soil, or , loosening it with the cultivator, and scattering from 500 lbs. to half-a-ton per acre of the stuff, and harrowing the I whole thoroughly to get a compact mixture of dry earth, killed grass and manure. Suuheb Cbops. — Maize is the leading crop of the summer grains. Sowing will be general this month. Experience clearly shows each season that there is nothing gained by sowing maize before the warmth of spring has brought up the heat of. the soil. To make heavy crops of maize rich soil and manure are ne cessary. Washes and Spbays. — A main re quirement in good orcharding is to keep the trees clean. Fruit of many kinds are now opening out for the long summer growing season. Use the washes and sprays set fort...

POULTRY NOTES. The Wotonga Yards. A contributor to the Auatralian Afjrictiltnvnli^l lately writes : — ' On reaching that pretty and comparatively little known watering place, Gosford, I was greeted by Mr. Gadcll. A short drive brought us to Wotonga. The lease having expired fresh quarters will have to be found for all the stock, but I learn that no move will be made until the breeding season is over. But for this, Mr. Cadell tells me, several new pens would have been erected.

With his five snow-white consorts on the (piss, they made a lovely picture, and though I like the old homely cuckoo coloured Rock, still the sight of these massive white birds, with the brilliant yellow legs and red combs makes them at once a strong rival of the Barred or Cuckoo variety. The white Rock is a prime favourite i...

SHERWOOD ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 14 September 1895
SHERWOOD ITEMS. lOur esteemed Sherwood correspondent in forms us that in his district cattle are dying ilitily from want of nourishment. News comes from F. Weston, of Prospect, to the effect that lie has lost large numbers of horses and cattle The strange part is that the coarse, dry grass fwhich is fairly plentiful considering the pason) kills the animals, though the latter limy be in what might be called fair condition. bcveral valuable mares, carrying foalsjby valu able sires, are among the victims. SettJers in 'various parts tell similar tales— on a smaller scale. One resident lost a valuable, well conditioned cow. It had been milked ; and a neighbour was looking at it, admiring it in fact, when it commenced to twist about as if chok ing. It fell down, and in a few minutes it was dead. It commenced to swell rapidly ; and a knife being used, in its Btomach were found half an orange and half a lemon. Had the cow been poor, of course its death would have been put down to starvation...
