The rain has been sufficient to give the creek a much - needed wash out. i The people residing upon its banks appreciate the clean tip. The Directors of the Broken Hill Water Supply, Company denounce the Government of New South Wales for 'shameful treatment.' The power of the Cessnock^ Shire Council is great indeed. 'No sooner did they commence to water Vincent Street than it commenced to rain. Agents are still waited upon daily by' persons in search of houses. Now that the weather has broken people are wondering if the house famine will also break.

A Good Suggestion. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 27 February 1914
A Good Suggestion. - : — ~— The suggestion make by Cr. Bad deley at last meeting of the shire I council, that vehicular traffic should use Cumberland street on business nights in lieu of Vincent street is worthy of consideration. The pop ulation of Cessnock is growing so fast that some move in this direction will soon become a necessity. It was pointed out by Mr Crampton that as Vincent street was a public highway there was no way of pre venting vehicular traffic from using Vincent street on these particular nights. Still it is as uncomfortable —perhaps more so— to drive along a crowded street as it is for the pedes trian to walk along the street and I have to continually dodge vehicles. In the past the trouble has been that Cumberland street was not safe for vehicular traffic? but now the en gineer has in hand the work of mak- 1 ing Vincent street a splendid road: way and when complete and the electric ^ligritiemstttlledalongitfe* j street it wiU be found an excellent I highway for...

Progression. ? ♦ ? By conversation with sawmill proprietors we learn that the timber trade is very brisk, in fact the mills are not able to cope with the demand for building timber. The building trade appears to be moro busy than ever, and it is considered there is no town in Australia going ahead with the same rapidity as Cessnock. A walk along Viocent-strect convinces the visitor of the wonderful strides of advancement the town is making. The buildings that are in course of construction are all of up-to-date character, and the number of them show the growth is of no spasmodic nature. Besides those now being erected there are several new build ings to be erected shortly, which will fill a number of the vacant allot ments along the street and ^greatly add to the appearance of the town.

In the. evening the Rector of Cessnock preached to a crowded congregation, from tfr- words ' while the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, summer and winter ? shall not cease. The speaker pointed out that the text embodied a guidamental law of God and Nature, though the harvest may be short or fail in one part, yet an abundance would prevail in another.

Sporting. Bob Whitelaw and Les Darcj meet at Maitland on March 21. 'Bullfrog' has a fancy that either Brattle, Defence, or Gold Brew will provide the winner of the Newmarket run to-morrow. The punters got a rough time at Boolaroo races on Wednesday for in their five tries the public could not get home with a single favorite. Te Whare won the Welter Mile at 10 to 1, Assignee the Shorts Handi cap at similar odds, Iriwilbin the Trial Handicap at 4's and dur Alf the final event at 8 to 1. ! In our last we mentioned that Our Alf was worth following, and by its success at Boolaroo it showed our summing up was right. If the horse keeps coming on as at present it will catch the judge's eye again in the very near future. There wore many present at Bool aroo who would have backed Assig nee in its race had it not been for the fact that the gelding carried 9|lbs - overweight. Punters didn't expect a horse to win under such circum stances, so turned their attention in another direction. However ...
