Hints as to Thriving. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 29 April 1887

Hints as to Thriving;. Hard work is the grand secrot of success. Nothing but rags and poverty can come of idleness. Elbow-grease is the only stuff to make gold with. No sweat, no sweet. Every man must build up his fortune, nowadays. Shirt-sleeves rolled up lead on to broadcloth. Believe in travelling step by stop; don't expect to be rich in a jump. Slow and sure is bettor than fast and flimsy. Every little helps, as the sow said when she snapped at a knat. Every day a thread makes a skein in tho year. Brick by brick houses are built. We creep before we walk, walk before we run, and run before we ride. In getting rich the more haste tho worse speed. Haste trips up its own heels. Hasty climbers have sudden falls. Make as few changes as you can ; trees often transplanted bear little fruit. If you have difficulties in ono place you will have them in another ; if you movo because it is damp in the valley, you may find it cold on tho hill. Where will you find land without stones or meat w...

More Circumlocution. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 29 April 1887

More Circumlocution. The Fairfield correspondent of tho TentertSeld .i Record, writes of the delay in granting Mining lenses as follows : — There is little or no work going on on the Co.'s ground, Mount Cavrington — that is to sitv, as far as mining operations on the Mount are concerned — but the men are employed elsewhere. Tho share holders were rather disappointed when when they went into Tenterfield with the expectation of getting tho littlo bit of money which is lawfully due to them, but through the rotten state of affairs in onr Mines Department thoso leases have been prolonged. It's a right down rascally shame the manner the miner is treated. J ust fancy ; it's over 1 2 months since this field has been opened, and there are not a dozen leases granted yet. One half of the officers in the department know as much about the requirements of the miners as a pig does about playing marbles.. They dont care one single strawaboutthe unfortunate minerwhohas to earn his bread by the sweat...

Bleached Ivory Billiard Balls. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 29 April 1887

IKleached Ivory Milliard Balls. | Several years ago Tom Foley, the ex champion billiardist, started out to do something grand. Having just purchased 30 sets of ivory billiard balls, ho thought they would look prottier if they* wore bleached. So he sent them down east to pass through the process. They came back to him in splendid shape. The white balls were as white as tho lower keys of a piano, and not one was marred by a blemish. Tom passed tho balls out to the players, and then went up into his look-out chair to enjoy the complimentary remarks of his customers. The players banged the balls about the tables, but, with tho exception of some mysterious whispering, Tom heard nothing but the clucking of tho spheres. A t last however, a man came up to the den in which Tom perched, and asked him why he didn't buy ivory balls. ' Those are ivory balls,' replied Tom, getting as mad as a March hare. ' They're nothing of the sort,' retorted the player ; ' they're celluloid. Did you ever see i...

The woods are said to abound with theso frightful haunts; from fifteen to twenty girls aro kept imprisoned in each for a few months, until worn out -with incessant outrage. The Neto York Herald says . There is but one term which fitly de scribes the state of things that has been unearthed in many of the lumber and mining camp3 of the Northern Peninsula by the investigation now in progress, and that term is hellish.'
