A Curious Will Case. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 15 May 1894

A Gurious Will Case. A curious will was adjudicated upon recently by Mr Justice ^'Beckett (Bays the Melbourne Age). On 12th Decem bor, 1892, John Bockhatn,. a farmer residing at Crrack East, drew up what purported to be his will, but it was not executed at the time. Some days aftewards two friends called upon him and showed them the document wb;ch hp hn.H wri t ton no Tun -will. ? TT« flinn said it was badly written and he would write it over again. As he had not time to do so on that occasion he i signed his name at the foot of a blank | sheet of paper, and by his request | they affixed their names as witnesses' 1 on the understanding that Bookham i would copy what he had originally ! written into the body of the sheet I above the sigriatures. » He died on the 3rd July last without having filled in I tho blank sheet, and after his death the |, two pieces of paper were found folded i up together in a drawer.

The Butter Glut. NECESSITY FOE CO-OPERATIVE ACTION. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 15 May 1894

The Butter G-lut. I I NECESSITY FOR CO-OPERATIVE ACTION. The present heavy Btocks of butter, even at this period of the season, ow ing to the greatly developed produc tion, makes the question of handling . ^the market in the farmers' interest a tAfnntter of great difficulty, from which W It is clear that the expected yet greater production next season will require derided concerted action to prevent heavy losses. Hitherto the attention of the dairy industry has been devoted ? ? and with such successful results as to make co operation in disposal the es sential work of the hour. Irregular efforts have been made in Misdirection; many private firms following the lead of the South Coast Co-operative Com pany and other companies, but extreme selfishness has been exhibited in many quarters, several co-operativo factories inland even not being free from blame. The market 1ms from time to time been cleared of glut by the shipments of the largest company, and when a good ' ' home or local ma...

Valuable Gold Discovery. FURTHER FINDS NEAR THE BEACH. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 15 May 1894

Valuable Gold Discovery. FUETHEE FINDS NEAR THE BEACH. Some little excitement has been caused through tho report of a rich find of gold to the south of Evan's River. From enquiries we ('Richmond Eiver Times ') find that the report is quite correct. The locality is at the head of what is known as Jerusalem Creek, nnd is about three miles from the beach. A wash composed of black sand has been found by the Messrs McLaren on the -top of a terrace, and covered by a deposit of about four feet of white sand. The gold-bearing sand is some four feet in thickness, and iB reported to be very rich. From pros pects taken from the prospecting claim, it is estimated that a man can easily make £6 por week. No sooner was the discovery made known that a rush set in, nnd some 200 claims have already been taken up. The discovery of payable gold in these back terraces opens up a good field for the miners, for there is an almost unlimited area well worth prospecting. The Toowoomba 'Chroniclo' says : — An...

PRINCIPLES OF LAND LEGISLATION. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 15 May 1894

PEINCIPLES OF LAND LEGIS LATION. To the Editor. Sir, — F.«r pome time past it has been evident that the present parliament, having outlived its usefulness, woula leave the land question to be dealt with by its successor, notwithstanding the pressing need for im mediate legis lation with respect to the leasehold areas in the central division. ItiBalso perfectly clear that the question is one nui^u UUI111UU UU Iguviuil uv Ult3 11UW Legislative Assembly, but will demand consideration directly tbe work of the session has commenci-d. Yet, up to the present, no permanent lines appear to have beon laid down for the future conduct of our land legislation. Every thing is sacrificed to expediency, in stead of being based upon principle. Hence tho unsatisfactory results of our various land sys oms. There has been too great a tendency to view 'the land question purely from tho stand point of the squatter or selector, dis regarding that of the general com munity, although the legitimate in teres...

The clerk read his report having reference to obstruction at Verg' and Mary Streets. The obstruction had been removed to a width of 18ft. Aid. Eobson moved that the report be received. , ' Seconded by Aid. Dark aud cirried. Aid. Robson said it rested with the Council to say whether sufficient of the obstruction had been removed for the, benefit of the public. He thought the Council should see that the street was opened to its full width. He had not the good will of sqme people for .acting in this matter, and some had said he was actuated by spite. He gave this an emphatic denial. He con ceived it to be a public duty in the in terests of the ratepayers, and if he did not discharge that duty he would not be worthy of a position on the Coun cil He moved — That this Council insistB that the obstruction ...

A Ghastly Discovery [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 18 May 1894

A Ghastly Discovery A ghastly discovery was made by two boys in the New town cemetery, Lennox-street^ 011 Friday, and the Newton po lice were informed of. the facts of the case that night. It ap pears that the boys, whose names are given as Ernest Hirst and Mathew Buckley, were walking through the grounds when they came across a suspicious-looking par cel lying 'almost hidden in a plot of tall grass. Constable Conran subsequently went to the spot and conveyed the par cel, which was wet and heavy with dew, to the Newtown police 'station, where it now lies awaiting a medical inspec tion. 'It is impossible to say whether the' remains -are 'those of an infant or not, and the only -reason ; which * the. ^ police can assign- for th_eir. suspicions is the^discovery ofa small piece ofbone, I11 addition, to that the parcel'consisted of an old newspaper, a piece of calico, :and- a quantity of liquid matter., A medical man is the only person capable of solving the mystery, and thesresult of: -...

' ' European Disarmament. Those who saw a little ray liopo ? ior the cause of. peace 1 a 11 c i pati o u . fronv th a of r tual I y eontiiHiiit suffered -T he home of an unqualified despot ism, has distinctly refused to make any movement in tho direction of his standing arma ments. T h e other nations must, -tnerefore, continue to suffer until the strain reaches the' breaking point. How long that may be, or when the in evitable catastrophe will occur, only time can show. Mean while the strain is more than critically severe already in more than one of the great countries of the continent. Ru ssia herself is hopelessly bankrupt, and has the cancer of Nihilism gnawing at her very vitals. The case of Italy is not much better, with 300,000 al most open rebels banded to gether in the province of Sicily alone, ready and anxiously awaiting any opportunity that may occur for striking a blow for a greater measure of freedom and more direct and effectual representation.

Bee-Farming. Wo fire glad to know that tlio first slii[Ht]ojit of honey for the home market has been des patched, through tho Depart ment of Agriculture. The ? f Peninsular and Oriental Steam ship Company, whose interest it is to increase our exports, has taken a trial shipment free of charge. At a time like the present when the community is awaking to the necessity for iii ueasing the export of natural pioduct.'., the importance of this nigle- led, though valuable, , bicincli ol uiral- industry should not be o\erlooked.

Fodder For Cattle. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 18 May 1894

Fodder For Cattle. I It is said that the. Jersey and Puernsey cows in their lintivo islands, are fed largely with parsnips, and n hether such food for many genera tions has boon an important elemont in forming tboir leading characters tics or not, it is yery evident that such food is vory consistent with the development of the 'butlor-inaking cuw ; and it might bo \rell for such of our dairymen as grow root crops in stead of ensilage to give more attention to this vegetable. Parsnips can. bo grown with less, trouble than carrots (says tho Mntnon and Farmer), froni the fact that the plant is larger when it first comes up, and is more readily seen and distinguished from weeds. ?After the first, woeding there is no more particular work to be done than with any other hoed crop that is wpII tonded. The soil should be deeply ploughed and enriched, and fitted as well as for a pursuip bed in a gardon, and this can bo done on a half aero in the field where a team can bo used aB easily as a s...

An Adventurous Voyage. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 18 May 1894

' An Adventurous Voyage. ? An. eleven months voyage from '.New Zealand to England, is in these days of fast steamships, almost beyond be lief. A smart liner would do the dis tance there and back, three or four times over in that period. The fact, however remains, that a full-rigged - ship, loaded with 12,000 carcases of mutton, and wool, 'and grain, left a New Zealand port on the 12th May, - 1893, and after a series of extraordin ' jry adventures, which read more like ' ' ?» » romance than a sober relation of ? facts, arrived at Plymouth Sound with -* her cargo of mutton in splendid order ' on s -th'ei 5th April, 1894. That the muttc n fhould hare been reported as in a remarkably good condition, is one - of the most striking features of the case, and puts the question of the ef ficacy of 'Jack Frost' in keeping off putrefaction beyond all dispute, i The story, as given by London pa pers of the 6th of last month, is that - the Wellington, a laTge clipper ship : of the Shaw, Savill, a...
