GRAINGER AND FALKINER'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 5 May 1894

GRAINGER AND FALKINER'S REPORT. The only change worthy of note in tbe produce trade during the week has been -1 decline in maize, and as most of the buyers are fully stocked it is difficult to find an outlet, and to effect sales lower figures will have to be accepted.

A Scrap from the Street. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 5 May 1894

A Scrap from the Street. Did yon ever see a man cry ? Probably more than once. Bqt it was always — was it not ? — at the playhouse, or in an' arm-chair over a novel, or for a few burning ahame faced seconds when he heard his mother was dead, or whfcn something bound as early and aB close into his life as that had just been torn away. Never till the other day haye I aeen a man crying by the hour. It was like tbis. There was two brothers who sold papers together in the streets, a hulking, hard-living, hard-drinking couple, but brothers as you see ot a glance. As I passed their ' stand' I saw there was a suicide on the bill — an Oxford man it said. It might be Bome one I had known years before, so I stopped to buy the paper. ' Our friend's gone,' said the seller, huskily. ' Who ?' I asked curiously, my brother, sir,' was the reply ; and then I looked up at the man — for as a rule I pass with my coppers in my hand and my eyes upon the ground. His face wbb smudged with tears, his eyes so...

Sarah Bernhardt and the Amateur. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 5 May 1894

Sarah Bernhardt and the Amateur. The gifted actress is reported in a New Tork newspaper to have gone through a curi ous experience in an obscure village in the South of Europe. The exactitude of the report it is unnecessary to affirm or dispute; but tbe familiar manner in which Madame Bernhardt is referred to, and the whole tone of the fol lowing reprint, which is copied exactly as it originally appeared, will cause no little amusement as a characteristic example of in ventive journalism : — Sarah Bernhardt on one occasion came face to face with a born actress of whom the world had never heard, but who appears to bave been both in appearance and manner Htrikingly like the famona French actreBs. On hor way home from a long tour Sarah stopped one day at a little seacoast village in the South of Europe, and the fancy seized her to give a performance of ' Buy Bias' there. She waa told that there was no theatre in the village, and that, even if there were, the shep herds and husbandmen, ...

MINING NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 5 May 1894

MINING NEWS. I A telegram from Daylesford reports that White and Jackson to-day, at the Welcome Gully Mine, struck a large lode at 75ft. in the south drive. It carries good gold. This is a valuable discovery, proving the permanence of the line of reef in the claim. ' They have 100 tons of stone stored below in the drives, estimated to go at least 20oz. to the ton. It is believed at Wyalong that the forty-five claims on gold are on rich stone. Fifteen of them ? have had crushings up to date averaging over 20oz. per ton. In addition about 35 claims are on gold supposed to be payable. The population on the field is estimated at four thousand including 500 children. An excellent return has just been banked from the Griffin mine, at Cobar, 62 tons of stone giving a return of 36oz. of gold. The body of stone is enormous. Twenty tonB of stone from the Drysdale ?laim yielded 89oz. of smelted gold. The stone was considered of inferior quality. Sixty-four tons from No. 3 Chesney mine yielded ...

E. W. SPARKE'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 5 May 1894

E. W. SPARKE'S REPORT. Fat Cattle. — Monday's yardings were moderately heavy and with only a limited attendance of the trade sales were dull. Owing to the large numbers going into the metropolitan market speculators for that market cannot with safety operate here and as a consequence the demand is limited to the requirements of the trade. Prices ruled slightly easier. The supply on Thursday was not excep tionally heavy and with a good attendance of the trade the demand was firmer, but prices show but a slight improvement on Monday's rates. I have sold — On account of Jarhes Hooke, steers from XI 12s to X2, heifers at X2, 34 bullocks from X2 12s to X3 5s, 17 cows from X2 Is to X2 10s ; D. Ross, 10 light bullocks from X2 5s to £2 63 ; F.

A Terrible Revenge. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 5 May 1894

A Terrible Revenge. Writing in the Geographical Journal of the Zout pansberg Goldfields of South Africa, Mr. Fred Jeppe sayB that the history of the first occupation of the district by the Boers, in 1848, under Hendirk Potgieter, who fought their way to the north, is full of thrilling incidents worthy of an amnle record by the future historian of the Republic Surrounded and opposed by powerful native^ tribes a handful of brave pioneers pushed on to the north and established a village on the southern slope of the Zoutpansberg, named Schoemansdaal. Here the Bmall community lived and flourished sur rounded by hostile native tribes. ? Rita Montanha, a Portuguese priest, who visited the village in 1855, mentions the number of dwellings as 278, accommo dating a population of 1,800 60uls, of whom 300 were fit to bear arms. They lived principally from the proceeds of their hunting trips into the interior bartering ivory and skins for guns, ammunition, groceries, and other necessaries of lif...

Mr. Gladstone's Retirement. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 5 May 1894

Mr. Gladstone's Retirement. I In a leading article of great interest and unusual length, the Times of March 12 Baid When the House of Commons re-assembles to-day for the now Session, the most distinguished of its members will be missed from his accustomed place. . . . There are those who think Mr. Gladstone s action in public life has always been as wise, beneficent, and disinterested as it has often been erratic, in* consistent, and biassed by the prospect ot power. There are others who will insist that the latter qualities must be taken as the measure and index of the former. These questions may be left to the impartial tribunal of history. But now that Mr. Gladstone's active career is finally closed, no generous mind can fail to recognise^ its unique historic character, whatever reservation may^ be made concerning its moral ynd political complexion. ... No other man has been four times Prime Minister of England. No other, man can reckon sixty years since he entered the service of...

'Well, boys, we had been doing some wonderful mowing, wonderful, and wore having a bit of a spell, and a drop o'cider. There was another man there, who could mow a bit, and he was doing some ' blow.

The Flogging of Natives in the Transvaal. The following extraordinary statement has bean widely published in a reeent budget of news from South Africa : — ' In accordance with the new regulation of Johannesburg, fuHy two hundred Kaffirs hava already raceived ten lashes each for being found walking on the pavements.'

A brief interval of silence ensued ; broken suddenly by a Bound of scuffle, aud then a shrill, long-drawn squeal, as of metallic surfaces in friction.
