In the Director we are fortunate in havinga man who is generally regarded as a very high authority on fruit culture, and one who has devoted a life long study to this department of production. Combined with his scientific knowledge, he has had a wide and varied practical ex perience, and so it happens that he was able to impart a mass of very ^valuable information to those who attended his meeting the other evening. Furthermore, he has avowed that it is his earnest desire to assist fruit growers in every way possible, and seeing the reputation with which he comes among us — ra reputation that places him in the front rank of the authorities on f...

A TERRIBLE MISTAKE. WOMAN SHOOTS FRIEND. Mrs Cuong Tart, residing at Ashfield, was awakened ear]y on Sunday morning by the furious barking of a '.dog. She aroused her little son, and, proceeding to the door, she saw a«figure huddled up on the verandah.

Mrs Tart then went into the house, obtained a candle, and, examining the heap, found the person shot was Mrs McMurtie, whom she .had known for 18 years. The wounded woman formerly lived next door to Mrs Tart, and mistook the house in the darkness. The police were summoned, and _Mrs McMurtie was conveyed to the Western Suburbs Cottage Hospital, where an operation was performed,* and a. bullet removed from the abdomen. Mrs Tart says that she has always kept a loaded revolver since a murderous attack was made at night on her late husband.

NEW SOUTH WALES, GERMAN SAILORS PUM MELLED. Late on Saturday night last a party of German sailors came ashore from somo vessel in the harbor dressed in quaint attire and wearing exaggerated mourn ing favors. The ringleaders °f the party carried a drum, fantas tically draped with crepe, and a draped concertina. They took a tram to Woolloomooloo, and after alighting in Bourke-street formed a procession. A curious crowd, increased as the procession made its way along the street, fol lowed, until in a flash it seemed to occur to a few that the whole performance closely resembled a travesty upon the present grief of the nation. The crowd closed on the foreigners, and jostled and pummelled them to such an ex tent that they were at their last gasp when the police: arrived and drove oft the crowd. Ihe sailors slunk away, with the exception of one masquerading as a woman, who was taken into custody. None of the sailors, it was stated, belonged to the mail steamer Scharnhorst, which is at pre...

MEYMOTT'S BELL- : RINGERS. V ??? Last night, at the Franklin Town Hall, a largo audience gave a hearty welcome to the above combination, whoso excel lent' performance fully justified the reputation that had preceded them. To judge from the cordial manner in which Mr Meymott's announcement that the company would present their second programme on Friday next was received, it may be anticipated that the accommo dation of the hall will be fully taxed on the 20th inst. Space will not admit of a detailed notice of the many interesting and novel items of which the programme is made up, but it may be briefly stated that the entertainment is a clever, novel, and refined one, and absolutely free from any objectionable feature. Mr Mey mott's conjuring contained new and amusing deceptions, and his impersona tions and mimicry caused much hearty laughter. The aeroplane dance, a novel and effective turn was imperatively en bred. Mr Harry Stewart's handcuff and iron trunk mystery is a bewildering p...
