MARIGOLD. CHAPTER XIII. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 13 February 1894
MARIGOLD. CHAPTER XIII. Next morning, Nhyoma gives Marigold a cup of tooth to carry to the occupant of the cave. ' He is a pal of my son down on his luck. We are to hide him until the authorities are through searching for him,' she adds, uttering the first falsehood that occurs to her. No words can describe the young girl's emotion when, upon entering the cave, she sees Hillis stretched upon some blankets before the fite. She forgets all else for the moment, and wibh a cry of joy, kneels beside him. As her lost lover opens bis eyes and stares about, she sees that something is terribly wrong with him. His eyes are vacant and an incoherent mutter breaks from his lips. She docs not know that this condition is the re sult of one of Nhyoma's decoctions, which has been administered to make him more ti actable. ' Hillis, don't ycm know me ? I am your Mari gold,' she cries, lifting his handsome head upon her arm. ' Marigold ?' he mutters. ' My Marigold had a face like a wild rose and hnir l...

Pastoral News, Stock Move ments, and Markets. Forbes Stock Report.— We have had another grand fall of rain during the week. It commenced early on Wednesday morning and continued throughout that day and part of next night, the gauge registering nearly two inches. The country now wears quite a different appearance from what it did a month ago, the shoot of grass being strong and general, while all complaints as to want of water are sow at an end. To the south, on th9 other side of the river, it was heavier than in Forbes, registers there giving three inches and. over 'in last fall. The following are the stock passings since last report .- 3000 mixed sheep (2nd Feb.) from Vaughan Vale to Forbes ; P.

LOCAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 13 February 1894
LOCAL NEWS. THE GONDOLIER COMIC OPERA COMPANY.- Without hesitation we say that the Gondolier Comic Opera Company which appeared at the Town Hall, West Maitland, in Gilbert and Sullivan's &nbsp; 'Gondoliers.' surpassed the expectations which had been raised by the preliminary notices. It is a combination of good singers and good actors, and the operas which it essays to interpret will receive ample justice at its hands. The fact that a Mait land public is always found ready to recognise genuine merit was again exemplified, by reason that the audience was one of the largest which has ever assembled in the hall. Its enthusiasm, and discriminating applause must have been as highly gratifying to the performers as was its extent. The seating arrangements, under the personal direction of Mr. Edward Blair, went without a hitch. Yesterday we sketched the story of the opera. It abounds in witty dialogue and complicated situations, and its burlesque of ceremonial observances is exquisi...
DUNGOG. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 13 February 1894
DUN0OG. Now that the election is over people will have time to reflect upon the choice they have made in their aldermen. The choice is popular, although regret is felt at the ousting of Mr. Jones, as he has shown a consistent spirit in all ways while in tho Council. However, the change may do the Council good, as there was a belief that fresh blood would improve matters. We hope it will. The declara tion made by the Returning-Officer I sent you by wire on Friday last, which announced Mr. George Waller and Mr. John Robson to be aldermen for three years. The result of the Local Option vote was also taken, result of which was : — A : 14, Yes ; 36, No. B : 25, Yea ; 25, No. I had the above written out before the official declaration of the poll; the only additional news is- that Mr. Jones gave notice that he would upset the election owing to parties voting who, had no right to. There is a deal of sickness around this neighbour hood. Th9 Ccttage Hospital is proving itself no ' white elep...

DISTRICT TELEGRAMS. [From our Correspondents.] ' NEWCASTLE. Wednesday. a very serious disturbance m connection with the men working at the Co-operative colliery took place yesterday afternoon. A large erowd of men- women, and children, carrying tin-kettles and cattle-bells, assembled near the screens shortly after three o'clock to meet the tributors coming up from the tunnel. Directly they appeared they were received with a tremendous boohooing, ring ing of bells, rattling of kerosene tins, and other discordant noises. A number of police under control of Inspector Duffy were present, and did their best to preserve order arid protect the tribu tors on the way to their homes. Fnfortu nately they were not altogether sueces3sul, the crowd continued to increase and to surge round the constables and the tributors, and at last a coliiaion occurred. A woman flourishing a kerosene tin in the face of the officers, caused Inspector Duffy to wrest it from her, and through it away. UnlucUily) it...

LITEST SPECIAL TELEGRAMS, [Fbosi the Press Telegraph Association.] SYDNEY. Wednesday afternoon. An inquest into the cause of the fire at the resi dence of W. G. French, at Petersham, on Satur day, was held before the De'puty Chief Coroner this morning. It was surmised tho fire was caused by burglars who broke into the place during the absence of the inmates. The jury returned a ver dict, after hairing the evidence of three witnesses, that the place was set on fire by some person or persons unknown. The foreman Btated there was really no evidence to show how the fire was started, and they could only therefore retnrn an open verdict. A butcher named Jas. Bragg met with an accident on Sunday morning last from the effects of which he died this morning. It appears he was riding along the Parramatta roid when his horse stumbled and rolled over him, inflicting serious injuries. Charles M. Graham, aged 20, was before the court this morning charged with having embezzled ;820 the money of the...

Professor Proctor's Grave. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 14 February 1894
Professor Proctor's Grave. The body of the astronomer Professor Richard A. Proctor now lies in a neglected grave in Green wood cemetery, and Miss Mary Proctor, his daugh ter, it is said, is trying to raise funds to purchase a suitable lot and monument. She is the oldest daughter of Professor Proctor, and her horns is in St. Joseph, Mo. When Professor Proctor was alive wherever the English language is Bpoken he was known and honoured by men of science as one of the foremost of their number. His writings had been translated into other languages, and in the universities of Europe were standard works. When he died he was buried in a borrowed grave, which is unmarked and neglected, saya the New York Times. On the books of the undertaker who buried him his name stands opposite ' Lot 5,928, Greenwood,' and beyond that there is no record. The lot belongs to the undertaker, who allowed the dead astronomer to be buried there until ' other ar rangements' could be made. None have been made, and...

Contempt of the Assembly. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 14 February 1894
Contempt of the Assembly. The writer of 'Talk on 'Change' in the Aus tralasian of Saturday has the following : . The Legislative Assembly of New South Wales has insisted that everybody in Australia and a great many persons in other parts of the world should know that in a paragraph in the Evening News it was alleged that members of the House were guilty of drunkenness, gambling, and immorality. That is all they accomplished by calling the editor to the bar of the House to answer a charge of contempt. 'Oh, that he were here to write it down!' said ancient Dogberry. ' Oh, do look what he has written !' says his modern prototype. It is related of an Italian gentleman thit after spending a long time in an endeavour to catch a wild cat he suc ceeded at, iast. Thirty seconds later he was heard to exclaim ' Mick, Mick, come here and hilp me to let this dashed thing go.' That seems to have been the fir the Assembly was in after it had caught Mr. Hogue. Strangers were excluded, but I have be...
