Sorry School of Arts. ANNUAL COMMEMORATION. A soiree in celebration of the estab lishment of tho Berry School of Arts was held in the main hall of the insti tute on Tuesday last under most favor able auspices. A sumptuous tea, pro vided and superintended by ladies of the town and district, was served at 6 p.m., the attendance of members and their friends, with guests invited from neighbouring towns, numbering several hundreds. The tea, meeting occupied two sittings. The hull was extensively and tastefully decorated with ferns, burrawangs, bunting, etc., and the scene was an animated one right up to the ' speech hour.' The Berry School of Arts, it might be said, enjoys a popularity unattained by any other society of the kind in these parts. This is undoubtedly due to the fact that the committee of management has ever striven to render tho institute attractive to all classes. Its machinery, too, has been kept in good working order for several years past. Tho 'intellectual torch,' to w...
The Classification of Land. TO THE EDITOR OR THE SHOVLHAVEN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News and South Coast Districts Advertiser — 12 August 1893
The Classification of La&A. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SHOALHAVEN NEWS. Sir, —All parties soem to be agreed that up to the present our land system has been practically a failure, but while the need fai reform is generally admitted, none of the leading politicians seem to have any definite idea as to what is actually required. They have no knowledge either of the urea or the character of the national estate or of the manner in which it m-&y be best utilised. If a private individual wished to soil his land to the best advantage he would naturally have it survejed and divided into allotments most suitable for the requirements of purchasers. This is the way tho State should deal with its own lands, whether intended for lease or sale. Tho value of State lauds depends entirely on their general character, and this should be ascertained before anything is done with them. In his prize essay, ' The Land and the People,' Mr. Epps has pointed out that both Victoria and New Zealand hav...

Was Jacob Gross a Fool? [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News and South Coast Districts Advertiser — 19 August 1893
'Was Jacob Gross a Fool? ' I can't make one of a party of thirteen,' be exclaimed ; eomo of us will be sure to die within a week.' Thus spoke barber Jacob Gross, of Batavia, on the 12th of November last. The occasion was a dinner party. When the (fuests were all seated Gross noticed that theie were thirteen at table. The others tried to laugh him out'ofjhie superstition, but be insisted th&t no wuuia not eat as one of a company of thiiteoc. A fourteenth guost was therefore added to tbe number. ' Now we're safe,' said Gross, and the festivities proceeded. Gross boarded at a hotel in Batavia. Ten days later the hotel was burned to the ground. The next morning the body of a man was found in the ruinB. It was tbe body of the barber Gross. Now, this, is a curious thing to happen, certainly ; but is it more than that) Do you beiieve there is anything in the common notion that thirteen is an unlucky number ? or that Friday is an unlucky day of the week?

Newspaper Borrowing. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News and South Coast Districts Advertiser — 19 August 1893
Newspaper Borrowing A writer iu the Bendigo Independent Bays : — ' Subscribers to newspapers would be conferring a boon on the pub lishers, and also helping in some slight degree to improve the quality of their favorite papers, if they would distinctly, once and lor all, refuse to be bothered by the borrowing next-door neighbour, or the neighbour on the other side of ? the road. When these shameful beg gars send, as usual, for the day's paper . — I wouldn't suggest tolling an untruth for anything — let them simply send back a reply that the baby has torn the paper into little bits, that the pup has chewed it all up, or that the cat has made a lied of it for her newly-;irrived family of little ones ; or that Sally is going round the house with it on her head for curl papers. Usually, the newspaper borrowers can as well afford to buy one of their own as the parties whom they are in the habit of plague ing with their request. Yourinveterate newspaper borrower is mean enough for anythin...

The Parson's Wife. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News and South Coast Districts Advertiser — 19 August 1893
The Parson's Wife. A clergyman was recently appointed to a parish on the southern coast (N. S. W.), and a lady who had given hf-r services for many years as organist waited upon the minister's wife, and kindly asked her when she would l;e prepared to commence choir practice 1 The minister's vt ife replied, with a toss of the head, that ehe 'knew nothing about it, and rudely shut the door. The lady-organist at once resigned her position, and the clergyman is warmly endeavouring to enlist another in her place. But until his wife learns to treat visitors more courteous, it is to be hoped that the vacancy will remain unfilled. I had a slight experience , myself with that clergyman's wife, who ordered her husband to shut the door and come to his breakfast, before I had reully time to explain my business to the follower of the Great Nazarene who said ' I will draw all men unto .me.' Thank heaven, ministers' wives are not all like the one referred to. — The Eye Witness, Sydney.
