ST. ANDREWS CATHEDRAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 14 September 1895
ST. ANDREW'S CATHEDRAL. Archdeacon Gunthcr preached at the Cathe- | dial on Sunday last, on the words, ' Lord, shew us the father, and it sufliceth us.' He that has seen Me has seen the Father.' Speaking of the per.sonul work of Christ, the preacher drew attention to His compassion for | tho.se distressed in mind, body, and estate. I Christ's actions, as well as bis teachings, con- ! deumcd those who thought that His religion had only to do with the souls of men. and who were so ' busy in saving souls that they had no time to save men and women.' Let the Church send her clergy and workers every where in the city of Sydney, and carry on her great work of intercession — ' With strong, grent wrestlings, souls are won ' —but let her reali-c tho need of practical, self-denying, loving and discriminate charity, and provide for social disticss and poverty. Let her know and declare that while religion promotes the higher life, it has also to influence our busi ness, our recreation, our poli...
WOMAN & HOUSEHOLD. A Few "Fashion" Words to the Ladies. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 14 September 1895
WOMAN & HOUSEHOLD. A Few ' Fashion ' Words to the LadieB. This Spring quite a number of silken goods will be worn. Chin/1 silk apd Bott silken fichues of tbe Marie Antoin ette style will be very much in favour. Sleeves will attract attention, some new ones are more voluminous at tbe elbow than at tbe shoulder. Sometimes ft pleating of uiuslin is sewn to tbe sleeve lining at tbe elbow to sustain the puff. This sleeve is a good model for ' silk or crepon. The puff is striped with bauds of jet passementerie. The lower I part of tbe sleeve is tight fitting, ana trimmed with jet. In another style, t\e epaulets are continued from tbe yoke and cut in sharp, teeth points, which, lined with silk and tipped with a bow or tassel, fall smartly over n moderate gigot sleeve. There is no difficulty in cutting or adjusting such a yoke and epaulet, which can be of tbe dress material or of a contrasting colour. It looks very effective in rich bengalinc or a crepon bodice decorated with chic l...

Tht Parramatta Firemen, the League of \V1 eehnen, and the Acorn lodge of Druid , have been untiring in tlieir efforts fluring tho past month to work up a i nceessful concert for the benefit of the widow and family of the late J . J. Ma tin, who, as is well known, was accido itally killed at Scone some time ago, i nd who, when alive, belonged to, aaa toon an acme interest jii, all thitee institutions. The promoters have every reason to be proud at the success (financially and otherwise) which attended their efforts, and which culminated in a bumper house in the Town flail oil Wednesday night last. Weeks! before the concert came off, a thousand tickets had been printed at the Free Pkkss office ; but, with an army qf friends at work, these were soon sold opt, and the order for more tickets had to be renewed. Of course, all those who bought tickets did not put iu an iappenraace, or tbe Town Hall would Lave hpen far too small to hold tbem-rbut the hall was comfort...

This was a sait in whioh the plaintiff prayed that the defendant might be ordered to complete his contract for the pur chase of certain land; being 89 acres oh the Rocky Hall Estate, near Parramatta, by the payment balance £[ thepurchase-money with inter&txhereon!

THE LAST UNIVERSITY EXTENSION LECTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 21 September 1895

D. O'Reilly, M.P., and Cairn es, Mrs. Williamson, Miss Cairn es, tbe Blisses Docker, etc. The lecture was of an exceptionally interesting cnaraoter. Professor I Jose first dealt with the development ot Aus tralian colonisation, the voyages of Dutch explorers ; of Tasman and Dampier ; and the explorations of Captain Cook, who came on the continent 'face first,' in 1770. The success of the American Bebellion And the machinations of France were shown to have preoipitated the settlement of Australia. The adventures of tbe young colony were then i graphically -traced. Beverting to Europe the j leotarer showed that the great Napoleonic war 1 really arose over rivalry in trade.

DUNDAS. The Fruit Crop. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 21 September 1895
DUNDAS. The Fruit Crop. Our growers are in great spirit over the rain fall nt the early part of this week. The orchards are in splendid bloom. It is doubt ful if some varieties of plum will Bhow as good a crop as sometimes is seen : but in other clasaeB there is little room for complaint and anxiety. The apricots promised well, and so do the peaches. Apples may be light this year ; a heavy crop having been gathered in '94. The \ oranges yet left are full of 6avour, mandarine especially ; there being little water in them— , j nothing but sugar and goodness. Aid. Rhodes, at Dundas Council meeting made some remarks re ' Local Government.' He said the pressure of responsibilities in con- , nection with Local Government was what troubled the Victorian farmer quite as much as Protection. Local Government was not all benefit. Men in country districts were heavily taxed ; and had to keep a man (in some cases for three months out of the year) to clear off noxious weeds on roads around their ...
ILLNESS OF MRS. T. MOXHAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 21 September 1895
ILLNESS OF MBS. T. MOXHAM. The good people of Parramatta North were very much concerned to hear, towards the latter end of last week, that Mrs, T, Moxham, of Church-street North, Parramatta, was seri ously ill. An attack of pleurisy bad become serious ; and the services of several of Parra matta's medical men had been retailed to UMo it,*' .ttoAlr iU* inoUUno f~t- EU. i some days the family of oar esteemed North end councillor were in a state of anxiety bor dering almost on despair; bat after along spell of hoping and watching a blessing came at last, and the patient took a turn for the better. Two curses were, however, kept in attendance on Mrs. Moxham, whom, as we go j to press, we hear is somewhat brighter and ! stronger than she was at a corresponding time last week.

Local and General. THE LATE NURSE KELLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 21 September 1895
Local and General. THE LATE NURSE KELLY. Archdeacon Giinther referred briefly, on Sunday evening, to the death of this young lady, whom he visited on several occasions during her illness; and exhorted the congre gation ever to be ready to sympathise with the suffering in mind, body, and estate. Common sorrows ana common calamities, said the preacher, should show us our dependence on God, and that we are members one of another. It was a touching eight to see in our streets the other day a long, mournful, and quiet pro cession of friends, following to her last resting place in God's acre, a young nurse— one of those noble and self-sacrificing women who devote themselves to the care of our mentally afflicted brethren. Doctors, nurses, attendants, friends, all showed their tender sympathy, and were drawn together by a common sorrow. So should it ever be, at all times.

Mr. McMillan's Speech. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 21 September 1895
Mr. McMillan's Speech. ? The bomb which Mr. W. McMillan Cut into the political arena, the other night, at Bnrwood, did Dot — happily for New South Wales — produce any very disastrous results. It may have been necessary, for Mr. McMillan's own sake, that he should come alone with a rather stale re-hash of some of the features of our late political campaign; but, viewed from the elec tors' standpoint, the dissertation was ill-timed, and, further, was inclined to tead like sophistry. If the Liberals : believe that any principle of right was involved in their late programme, they are bound to regard those who now cry ' Peace, Peace! ' &b either cowards, traitors, or men not yet seized with the immensity of the issues involved in Beforni. Too ,many hard names were called by both sides, two or three months ago ; so we will disclaim at once any intention of accusing Mr. McMillan of cowardice or treason. But it is very plain that his knowledge has Buffered, by reason of his absence ...
