MERRIWA. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 15 February 1894
MERR1WA. We are pleased to report a very desirable change n the weather. The intense heat of last week julininated on Friday last in a steady downpour of welcome rnin, and on Sunday we received a further 'avour, which was preceded by a thunderstorm. Fhe country around has already assumed a more iheerful appearance. The cricket match on Saturday last beween Merriwa and Bunnan proved a very nasy victory :ov Bunnan. Our tjoyE appear to have been over matched upon tins occasion. The local bench has recommended a new polling place for this electorate at Coolie Cottage, about ten miles north of Meriiwa. This has been deemed necessary through the polling place at Bunnan having been swallowed up in the Robertson elec torate and lost to us for ever. The eornmittne of Merriwa Hospital have been for years endeavouring to induce the residents of Cnssilis district to contribute something reasonable towards the support of the district hospital, but have so far failed. The objects of the hospital,...

PASTORALISTS AND SHEARERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 15 February 1894
PAST0EA1ISIS AKD SIIEAEEK8. The latest development of the diffi-r&noe of opinion between the Council of the Pastor&l- isfes' Union and the Intercolonial Coaferance of ShearerB Union delegates is that the first n&med body haa answered the Conference letter in the following terms. The Council is of opinion that engaging men through the .Pastoral Wnion office is no violation of the agreement either in letter or spirit. The Union did not compel its members so to engage men, but many of them find it con VfLllOUU IU UU HU. X\ O H1UU 18 UOmpBliQU CO accept a reference ; but naturally, as is the universal practice, Bays the Council, an employer will give preference to the applicant for employment who is able to produce some satisfactory evidence of bis ability and good conduct.

GRETA. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 15 February 1894
GRETA. Bathing Accident. — A lad of about fifteen named M. Brady met with a painful accident while bathiDg in a creek here yesterday. It seems that a party of lads like himself were along with him enjoying themselves diving into the shallow water, and Brady in one of his descents struck his head on a rock or some equally hard substance at the bottom, cutting it open in a shocking way and rendering himself iuaenaible. He u-as soon hauled out by his companions and taken horno, when Dr. W. H. Rogers wa3 sent for. * That gentleman after ex amining the sufferer tound it necessary to draw the wound together with five stitches, so the extent of the cut will thu3 be readily imagined. It is not thought, however, that the skull is much injured, and the probabilities are ihat with care a few days may see the lad all right. Miners' Meeting. — The usual weekly meeting of this lodge was held in Mr. North's hall this morning. Mr. Wm. Patrick was in the chair, and the attendance was very large. The...
