Miscellaneous Pars. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 22 May 1894

Miscellaneous Pars. According to a report from Horn Is. a party found payable ground for two miles along the creek before they struck a rich patch, and discovered thn reef. They consider that the alluvial deposits will keep a number of miners working for a considerable time. . ' Experimental crushing rrom the big reefs at Wyalong have given only small returns, but they would be payable if dealt with by local batteries. Tha World's Congress of miners at Berlin has demanded tAe legalising of the eight hours system, and the pro hibition of the employment of women in mines. Taamanians do not believe in .the story of a mountain full. of gold having been found, but it is anticipated that worked on a very large scale the dis covery'would pay. The cricket match played on, Satur day last between the Stroud C. C. and the Albions resulted in a draw.

Orchard Notes For May. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 22 May 1894

Orchard Notes Por May. Pruning can be commenced during the month with plumB and peaches if all the leaves have fallen, as the sooner it is done after the leaves are off the trees now the better, aa the energies, of the tree are then devoted to matur ing the budB that are left instead of all that are on the tree, a large number of which will in any case have to be pruned away afterwards. Where new orchards are to be planted out, the land should be got ready when not done previously, but with new land it is always preferable to have the land broken up some months previous to planting so that it may become thoroughly sweetened. The main crop of lemons will be getting ready for gathering during the month and as they become fit for gathering, that is, just as they are be ginning to turn color, they should be cut from the trees and cured, instead of being allowed' to remain on the trees to the detriment of the quality of the fruit and to the injury of the tree. The proccss of curing the l...

He is described as possessing a ' sweet, persuasive, style of elo quetace,' which draws crowds of people to hear him. Master Cunningham goes to school like other boys, but he spends his holidaysJa a way that small boys are not likely' to copy. He ar ranges a preaching tour, and goes. from one church to another until his vaca tion is exhausted. A bright-looking lad, he wears a Lord Fauntleroy suit of blue, with a Byron collar, and a carnation in his button-hole. His friends think that even Mr Moody will need to look to his laurels.

A new find of gold was discovered near Ghostly Creek, in a beach terrace about three quarters of a mile inland. This dis covery is of great importance, inas much bb it should lead to further pros pecting from the main branches, to which it has hitherto beon confined. McGeary and party wore the prospec tors of this terrace, the auritorons aand in their claim being 3 feet thick and 100 feet wide, the stripping being from 18 to 20 feet thick!
