Kioting at the Industrial School, Parramatta. SWEET EIGHTEEN. DEFYING THE MATRON. LIVELY 00UET PROCEEDINGS. Ox Friday night last five girls, in mates of the Girl's Industrial School, Parramatta North, escaped for the second time within three days. On the Wednesday previous the gills escaped but were captured within a quarter of an hour or their escape. When they were brought back to the institution on the first occasion they made a rush for tho bathroom and lock ed themselves in, defying all efforts to dislodge them from their stronghold. They broke all the windows, smashed tho buckets and did all the damage they could to tho premises. No coaxing on behalf of the matron could induce the holders of the fortress to surrender to the discipline of tho institution. On Friday night the}' removed a bar from a window, and also removed tho screws from the door, so that whon nightfal came they got into the garden and then over the wall and wended their way by road to Sydney.

Freedom to All through the Single Tax. TO THE EDITOR OF THE CUMBERLAND ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 11 May 1889

Freedom to All through the Single Tax. TO TEK EDITOlt 01' THE CUMBERLAND AEQUS. Shi, — As a constant reader of your paper, I have been much delighted this last two weeks to find that there is someone giving a little thought to tho question of ' Progress and Poverty.' I read with delight the bold, outspoken and manly letter of your correspondent, W. J. M'Closkie, in your issue of the 20th inst. Certainly, ho did use very strong words to express himself ; but this can be looked over, as the outcome of a full heart, and he would be but a poor Briton, seeing the condition of his fellow man and possessing a cure, if he didjnot speak out. Anyone who has watched the noble movements of the single tax party in Sydney will easily see that they are taking the hearts of tho people in thousands, and it is a cause that Mr. M'Closkio will do well to follow up until the battle is won and the workers made free, as God intended all mon should bo. But I must leave Mr. M'Oloskie's letter aud turn to an...

Deepening the Parramatta River. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 11 May 1889

Deepening the Parramatta River. Mn. C..A. Joanuerett writes as fol lows: — Tho proposal to deepen the Parramatta River so as to make it available for commerce to tho town of Parramatta, or oven to Redbank, has como too late to be of practical use. The railway bridge at Ryde, constructed as it is without any provision for a swimr or drawbridge, has for the present effectually blocked all traffic beyond it, ? except such as can be carried on by small mastless craft. The expense of lightering and transhipment would ren- \: dor freight by river always more costly than by rail. It seems to mo that tho :: best thing to bo done for the health and adornment of Parramatta, and to mako '? traf lie by lighters possiblo at all timos, ; is to mako a dam with a lock somewhere about Redbank or Duck River. -In tho course of a few years tho water would '; become fresh, and manufactories might then be established. A pipe drain could bo conducted from the town to below t^o dam. Tho river would then ne...

For direct application to the soil, nitrate of potash, otherwise nitre or saltpetre, in a powdered stato may be usod. Sulphato, or chloride of potash, answors the same purpose ; ono pound of either of the salts mixed with an equal quantity of sulphato of lime, otherwise gypsum, will make an ox collout top-dressing for a small vine border ; this should be slightly forked into the soil and well watered.

Fruit Pests at the Kurrajong. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 11 May 1889

Fruit Pests at the Kurrajong. The 'Windsor and Eichmond Gazette' takes exception to the remarks contained in an article on ' Tho Kurra jong Orangeries,' appearing in the Cumberland Abous of April 13, to tho effect that the Kurrajong orchardist knew no pests, In his endeavour to put the matter right, the editor elaborates with the annexed heavy catalogue. He says : — ' Tho greatest pest against which these worthy pioneers have to fight is the flying fox, and the depreda tions of these vermin, which during the past season have been hovering over the district in hundreds of thousands, are simply ruinous. We have heard of one grower on the Hill being cleared right out of stone fruit, and in consequence of the dry season, and the absence of berries, etc , the foxes have been so ravenous as to eat all the small green pears, and finish up with the loaves. All attempts to thoroughly dislodge the foxes have been ineffectual, although Mr. Bob Forrester, who has suffered from their visits, int...

St. John's (Parramatta) Choir. TO THE EDITOR OF THE CUMBERLAND ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 11 May 1889

St. John's (Parramatta) Choir. TO THE EDITOE OF THE 0UM1IEELAND AEGUS. Sir, — In a few days a meeting of tho parish ioners of St. John's Parramatta, will bo held, and undoubtedly, as of yore, the played out ' vote of thanks ' to tho members of the Choir of this Church for past services will be carried 'unanimously.' So much has been said against the Choir of this Church for the past fifteen j'ears that it is really time that some thing should be done to improve its 'jondition in tho future. The cry has been for many years.that; St. John's choir is not the choir it should bo ; and that its members do not take the pride in producing the music that they should, or in attending the weekly practices. Now I will take this for granted— but at the samo time would ask what encouragment has ever been held out to the members of the ehoh? Their services have been given gratuitously — they deny themselves of evenings ttiey might bo spending — well, even more profitably than their practising stal...

Castle Hill A. and H. Show. TO THU UDITOlt OF THE CU3tl)Kni,ANl) AIUJUS.

Bofore pro ceeding further, I. beg to assure those immediately interested that it is not bocauso I did not come out with ' Hying colours ' in all the sections in which I competed that I am prompted in the action, but my comment arises from a suspicion that in a majority of tho ex hibits the awards were not made on tho merits of tlie exhibits but savoured very much of a 'local favouritism' nature to have been generally shewn, and where such an instance did not manifest itself, dissatisfaction ensued in cases from the incompeteucy of tho judges. One reason for my assuming that '? local favour' was shown is that I no ticed (in some cases) that the gentlemen acting as judges were at the time of their making the awards in possession of a catalogue containing the names of the di...
