New Agricultural Implement. After about seven years' labour, Mr. John Bridgefoot, one of the gardeners at the Parramatta Hospital for Insane, has invented and completed an agricul tural implement which is really a com bination of implements, being converti ble, with very little trouble, into a scari fier, a harrow, a cultivator, or a potato hiller or ridger, as well as being vory useful in the matter of making draws* in land where irrigation is practicable. The frame of the implement is in the form of a T, at tho butt end of which are steeling handles, and at the other or forward end a pilot-wheel and shackle of ordinary construction.

Dundas. THE COMING ELECTION. As the eventful 11th draws near tho strife in the new municipality begins to assumo a moro definite shape. Every day during tho past week has added to the list of known aspirants after civic honours. To-day puts an end to the yirobablo bv iuforminsr us of the actua candidates.

Where do Flies come from. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 11 May 1889
Where do Flies come from. Tub question is often asked, ' Whence come all the flies, and where do they go in the winter?' The following taken from an. American paper, which we cannot identity, contains a method cf reducing tho number, and may he use ful in tifie coming season. The common % is too well known to need description It belongs to the order Dipteria, it has two wings, suctorial mouth parts flies and mosquitoes stab and suck, but do not bite— and passes through com plete transformations. By this last we mean that the first stage, maggot, is not at all like the succeeding stages of the insect. It belongs to the family Ituscidw Such insects have short antennEO,. with the full plume on the last joint, and heavy, short bodies. This fly hiber nates in winter as a fly. Fortunately most of them never wake to life in the spring ; but enough of them survive to make things lively about August and September. The house-fly lays more than 100 whitish, elongated eggs. These are laid in ho...
The P.R.C. Skating Carnival. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 11 May 1889
The P.R.C. Skating Carnival. ' Whikk, -whirr, whirr ! ' That's about all wo can got out of our head since wo attended the skating carnival run by the Parramutta Rowing Club in the Rosehill pavilion on Wed nesday evening. Thero was an awful ' whirr' — unceasing, unmuaioal, and, in fact, inde scribable. But thero was a groat deal of fun. When the first special tram unloaded the grand pavilion began to nil immediately, ana the last tram brought the attendance to over 250. It will bo inferred from this that the main object was achieved, namely, the augmenting of tho 'flowtido' funds of our deserving if not so very popular rowing institution. As an on ? conragement to such a manly pastime as row ing, the P.R.C. deserves well of the public, but somehow or another it has not of late yoars been overburdened with members, and the few plucky rowists -who have kept it going by ' a long pull, a strong pull, and a pull all together,' have hud a stern chase to row. Their courage, however, has at ...
