Progress, Poverty and the Single Tax. TO THE EDITOR OF THE CUMBERLAND ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 27 April 1889

Progress; Poverty and the Single Tax. TO THE EDITOH OF THE CUMUEKtAXD AHOUS. Sir, — As human products of tho Nineteenth Century, we differ su widely in natural impulse and mental on dowumont, that great diversity of opinion is sure to bo manifested upon all questions of national or cosmopoli tan interest. Thus it is inevitable that there should bo « marked want of agreement to as what constitutes real progress. Sonic there are amongst us who regard tho present condition of the more highly civilised races as but a slight advance upon the barbarism and savagery of tho past. Certainly, it must greately puzzle a thoughtful physiog nomist to reason out progressive com fort and well being from tho myriad of painfully anxious faces encountered claj by day. How the frail forms, testifying more or loss to physical defect and ail mont, and tho perturbed and careworn countenances, with the weary gaitnndd 4 ton Lots pressing aspect, emphasise the current query, ' Is life worth living?' But gran...

Agricultural and Horticultural. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 27 April 1889

Agricultural and Horticultural. (Bv Westjiead.) Irrigating Orchards — Tho methods of irrigating orchards arc very simple (writes Stewart). It is only necessary to put tho water where it will do the most good, that is as near as possible to the extremities of tho rootlets. Tho extent of the roots of a tree bears a ratio somewhat approaching- that of tho branches. Near tho stem there aro IOW or. hlu rooi- iiurus uy wmuu miui ment is absorbed. Those are found at the extremities of the very fine rootlets and these exist in a ring around tho tree, tho inner edge of which is from 3 to 4i foot distant from tho stem. In irrigating an orchard, then, tho most perfect method of applying tho water is to distribute it in a broad circular channel around tho tree, distun Lime about six feet from the stem. Where irrigation of orchards is practiced two different plans are adopted. The first is a somewhat rude method, but is easy and effective. The water is led into a channol between two rows of tree...

SECTION 6.— JAMS AND JELLIES. 'Glasses' -where sweets compacted lie. — JCcrbert. There was a poor collection under this heading, although some of the exhibits shown were very nice: Miss C. Homers and Mrs. J. Homers (the former with 32 and the latter with 28 varieties) showed very clear jellies. The jams of the same ladies were scarcely clear enough. Mrs. A. J. James had a very good collection of syrup fruits. Mrs. A. AV. Chisholm showed some fruits in water of beautiful colour and as clear as crystal, but Airs. James's and Miss E. Cassell's exhibits were not so clear. The judges (Mrs. C. Gibbs, Mrs. C. Osborn, and Mrs. AV. Bayley) placed tho awards as under : — Best Hive of Bees. 1st prize, 10s: 2nd, os.

The fow exhibits in this section were worth looking at, although not very pretentious. Mr. AV. H. Tuckwell de servedly won first prize for oaten hay. Mr. F. E. Barker, of Moorbank, did not bother about the fruit prizes, but he came in first for maize His cobs allowed abundant grain. M. A. J. James had fine cobs and Mr. J.

SECTION 7.-HOUSEHOLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 27 April 1889

SECTION 7.— HOUSEHOLD. Nothing lovier oau bo found Iu wonian than to study household good. — MUton. Mrs. E. J. Black had evidently been carefully studying this couplet, if one may judge by the splendid sample of table butter which she exhibited. The butter was very pleasing to the in taste. It can well we labelled ' first class.' Mrs. C. L. J. Banks also showed some nice ' pats,' but the ex hibits of Mrs. C. J. Moore and Mrs. John Redden, although by no means to be despised, lacked the rich colouring of the prize winners. There was no com parison between the bread shown by Mrs. J. Hemors and other exhibitors. It had, in fact, quite a professional look about it. Mrs. Z. Bellamy displayed a dainpor that would have made a 'backwoodser' Mush, and Mrs. Fagan and Mr. J. Dunn showed excellent loaves. The judges (Mrs. C. Gibbs, Mrs. 0. Osborn, and Mrs. AV. Bayloy) gave the prizos as under : — Best Side of Bacon, cured by exhibitor. 1st, 5s; 2nd 2s 6d. AVillian A.

UNFAIR CRICKET REPORTS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE CUMBERLAND ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 27 April 1889

UNFAIR CRICKET REPORTS. TO THE EDITOR OP THE CUMBERLAND AEOUS. Sie, — In a paragraph under the head of cricket in your issue of tho 20th inst., some ro marks are made as to tho causo which led to the defeat of tho Rosehill C. C. by the Inde pendent C. C. on the latter's wicket. The in formation appearing (evidently supplied by one of the losing side) is so ungenerous and unfair, that I, knowing tho spirit oi justice that characterises your dealings with all matters of sport, mako bold to say a word thereon. When tho match was arranged it was decided to pro curo the Parramatta's or an asphalt wicket, and in tho event of these grounds being en gaged, to play the match on the I.C.C. ground. Application being made, it was found that neither of these wickets were available ; then, in terms with the arrangement, the match was played on the lastnamed ground. The wicket bumped but little on the occasion of the match, and the Rosehills could not see that the bowlers were 'bumping' the ball p...
