Board, manager of tbe Pomona estab _ lishment (which nestles in that estate better ot the Camden Carrington Hospital, during the late yearn of his life, made experiments with a number of choice fruit varieties). The Pomona Yards are easily found : and, in passing, it must be wiid that what in to he learnt there is easily remembered. Few persons visit the establishment without absorbing some how a desire to go out into the wide world and talk ' egg-producing ' topics, and advertise Mr. lioard. Small wonder ; for what he says is startling ; and, though few poultry men hide their lights under bushels, their is a ring of genuineness about the Pomona man's chat, which is wonderfully attractive.

SHERWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 21 September 1895

SHERWOOD. [FkOM OUH CoKKr.SI'ONIJKNT. This district is sadly in want of a good water supply, the need of which has been keenly felt during the present dry weather. The same thing has also proved very trying to our market gardeners. A special effort is being made bv the ratepayers to obtain the much needed water supply. They have sent a petition to our Council, asking them to present it to the Water Supply and Sewerage Board, suggesting that the main be laid down Parramatta-road to Fark-road, when other streets can be connected if sufficient inducements offer. The object is to assist the district, and lessen the outly for the Water and Sewerage Board, as it is currently reported that the outlay will not permit of the laying of mains along Sherwood road to Park-road. All the ohnrches here were well attended by worshippers on Sunday, it being a day tor humiliation and prayer for rain ; and on Monday evening a heavy thunder-storm commenced about 7 o'clock, and rain fell during the night...
