Local Topics. He would indaed be a glutton who was not satisfied with the last sample of wind and wet forwarded us (C.O.D.) by the clerk of tho weather. Both wind and rain were genuine unadulterated commodities. ' High travelling winds filled with the strong storm's soul,' ?were here ' with dark strange sayings from thejPolo,' driving before them such floods of rain that the outcome was much of a muchness with tho scene describod by the poet when ho wrote — Like weeds uplifted, Tho tree-trunks rifted In spars were drifted Like foam or sand ; Past swamp and sallow, And reed-beds callow, Through pool and shallow, To wind and lee ; Till, no more tongue-tied, Pull flood and young tide Roared o'er the sand-bags and rushed to tho sea ! Verily, 'twas a wild old time— tho air was in the clutches of the wind, and violently 'gainst its violence did protest with shriek and shudder and struggle, and tho flood waters, madly flushing, leaping, twisting, foaming, crashing, played tho part of thoso...

THE Cumberland Argus AND FRUITGROWERS' ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, JUNE 1. THE HOSPITAL AND THE DOCTORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 1 June 1889

THE FRUITGROWERS' ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, JUNE 1. THE HOSPITAL AND THE DOCTORS. To tlio credit of tho medical profes sion it may be said that, as a general rule, its members are exceedingly phil anthropise, expending annually consi derable amounts of time and skill upon patients who are too poor to make them any return ; but none the less it is true, that doctors constitute an irritabile genus, moro thin-skinned and sensitive pro-, bably than either the clerical or the legal genus. It is this irritability on the part of medical men, as regards all matters of professional etiquette, that so frequently surrounds Hospital management with almost insurmount able difficulties. Por years past the Parramatta District Hospital has ' rubbed along ' successfully, doing good work in the prosecution of the objects for which it is maintained, and no ono who knows anything of its history but will cheerfully admit (if he is honest and impartial) that a very large per centage of the credit due for the s...

The Single Tax Controversy. BEGINNING OF THE END. TO THE EDITOR OF THE CUMBERLAND ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 1 June 1889

The Single Tax Controversy. BEGINNING OF THE END. 10 THE EDITOR OF THE CUMBEKLAXD ABGUS. Sot, — I am too acutely sensible of tho danger of wearying your readers, by unduly lengthening a controversy not without interest at its outset, to run much risk of adding to the contents of that W.P.B. Such discussions may be almost indefinitely prolonged, and then tho issue will probably remain uncertain. The ' Single Tax advocates doubtless honestly believe they have completely overcome my objections to their pet theory, whilst I admit tho answering of but one point, in itself not materially important. It should not be overlooked that their statements in regard to the beneficial results of the single tax are altogether hypothetical, if not apocry phal ; bare assertions and assumptious never yet practically tested. It is only natural for an enthusiastic neophyte to be carried beyond himself with an inflated idea of tho value of the doctrines enunciated by his leader and proceptnrs. Thus it doe...
