Very Obliging. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 5 March 1915

Very Obliging. What an obliging lot our civic fathers are '' Every year brings notices from the Newcastle, Mait land, and Singleton shows asking the council to sanction a public holiday being granted to each of these shows, and our obliging coun cillors agree. Now Maitland does not proclaim a public holiday for Newcastle show, and of course New castle does not proclaim one for 'Maitland show, so we make up for it and declare a public holiday for both— with Singleton thrown in to boot. Now while it is perhaps nice to be very obliging, isn't it a bit absurd ? What good does a bank holiday in the Cessnock shire do the Newcastle show ? and why should our business people be put out simply because Newcastle show committee ask for a holiday to be proclaimed' in the shire ? We feel awfully obliged to Sydney for not making a similar request, as it is very nice to see the banks open. Yesterday the banks were closed because the Newcastle show was opened, and even if people were in convenienced...

Narrow Escape. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 5 March 1915

Narrow Escape. it was discovered on Monday morning that during the previous couple days some one — who had pro bably been camping on the racecourse — had lighted a fire under the grand stand and had burned away the bottom portion of the partition be tween the refreshment booth and the ladies' lavatory. At the present time it is dangerous to light, fires anywhere in the vicinity owing to the long grass, but it is a criminal act to light fires near any building.

THE BUCK-JUMPER OF McGRANE'S ESTATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 5 March 1915

-THE BUCK-JUMPER OF McGRANE'S ESTATE. Sir, — In your last issue Jack Peddick, the buck-jumper, rider of M'Grane's Estate, publishes an ef fusion over his name, in reply to my correspondence regarding his very early morning practice of whip-cracking. Never knew you could wield the pen as well as the whip, Jack, old chap, and I must nffpf mv r-imcrrntii1ntinTie Vmi have taken my meaning wrongly. When I suggested that you put your artistic method of whip cracking to patriotic purposes, I meant to suggest that were more reasonable hours chosen — pardon the word,. Jack-^-admission f ould be Charged and money: made for patriotic purposes. I know full well that good men are wanted at home as well as abroad, and would not think of suggesting that you go stopping .bullets. That's why I stay home myself. But Jack, now you have the tip, don't start' your horsemanship feats before 6 a.m., there's a dear chap. Any sleep before that hour is not over time «leep. — Yours, etc., ONE IN THE SAME STRE...

Correspondence. IS RACING CLEAN ? TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 5 March 1915

Corresqondence. IS RACING CLEAN ? TO THE EDITOR. Sir,— It was a great pleasure to read in the '*' Eagle', the remarks ^ made upon the quality of tlie rac- : ing of to-day. I have often won*'* dered why soirie of the dailies did not comment upon the question^ but it appears that they begin to a8k questions when a -^ :primary move h^s beim jnad» The public^ juiuty . nun viiati hijxjf uavc -jiuv:; beeu getting an honest _go always; : and the occasions for complaint; have become more numerous as the success of former exploits passed unnoticed. To my way of thinking the present system of the control of racing being in the hands of stipendiary stewards is not in the best interests of racing; and the old style, where the com mittee took the responsibilities was better, because their clean actions were responsible for their club's success. There may be even bet ter systems, and if so, in the inter est of sport they should be brought forward, for if racing can't be much worse than it is to d...

Urban Area Amendment. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 5 March 1915

Urban Area Amendment. During a discussion at the shire council meeting, last Monday, on matters to be brought before tbe Shires Conference, the provision en bodied in the new Act where, in the case of an urban area, two commit teemen, independent of the council lors are to be elected to transact business, some straight talk was in dulged in. The President, in intro ducing the matter, said he hoped the instructions, would be for their re presentative to oppose this measure. His opinion was that too many cooks spoilt the broth ; if the coun cil oould not manage the affairs of an urban urea without the help of outsiders then an urban area, was po gpod. The responsibility cpujd not tie put pn twp bodies. — Cr, Snape agreed wjth the remarks, stating if they could not run an urban area they had no right'to be there. He moved that Cr, Morgan be instructed to oppose the idea of the committee men, The President; seconded the motion. — Cr. Tullock said they would have responsibility without p...

Smallpox. It takes a lot to disturb the equili brium of the average Cessnocknite, yet last Tuesday, when a Health Officer from Sydney confirmed tbe opinion that there were two cases of stnallppx in town, even busy Cess nock; to speak metaphorically, leaned on it6 pick and looked askance. .At once there was commotion, and on the highways and byways the dis cussion was smallpox. The two cases, both from McGrane's Estate, were taken to Kurri Kurri, where the patients from that area are con fined, and everything that could be done was done at once to stamp out the disease. No further cases were discovered during the week, although romours of who had smallpox were plentiful and the occasion demon strated ' How people will talk ! ' This morning a free vaccination depot was opened at the Cessnock Hall, and at 9 o'clock there were a couple of dozen children awaiting their proportion of serum. As 10 o'clock approached, there was quite a crowd waiting, and the appearance was given as though t...

SMALLPOX. Pokolbin: THE QUEEN SUBURB. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 5 March 1915

SMALLPOX. THE DESEASE IN TOWN. WITH the scourge among us and at Kurd, with contagion likely to oc cur at any moment, while not wish ing to pose as alarmists, with the best interest of town and district ever be fore us, it is not expedient to allow the situation to remain undiscussed. This attitude, by the way, may be adopted at crucial junctures by other country journals whose principles are less dignified. Now that science has practically dispelled all doubt con cerning the Hum cases, and consid ering the hitherto careless manner in which it has been treated through out, it is. small wonder that sub sequent; revelations do occur nearer home. Apart from its more verulent form there is little reason to fear fatahceaulto/ Wcre-tiio eooarge^fi veloped in mystery and science were at fault there would be every reason for much alarm. Since its outbreak in Australia about eighteen months ago, results have shown' that mortal ity is rare with the disease. How ever, on the other hand, it must...
