Shorthand Class (School ofArts). The Shorthand Class at the School of Arts, Granville, is run in connection with the Technical Education Depart ment *, and ib under the control of Mr. S. C. Cropper (by whom it was opened in rfiflnmflB a rwiueat from a number of students in May last). The fourteen students who enrolled last term, have, 1 with only one or two exceptions, made excellent progress. The attendances, altogether, have been most regular; and the results have demonstrated that the holding of a shorthand class in Gran ville is thoroughly justified. On the opening night of the new term there was an increase in the number of en* rolments ; and generally the position of this class may be regarded as satisfac tory. No doubt when the class becomes better known there will be a still more encouraging number of those recognis ing the great advantages of shorthand. Mr. T. Marshall, who lias been on a trip to tho Old Country, has returned, — but not alone ; for he found a wife whilst he...

Hurrah ! for the Road. [?] Sir.— 1 have often wondered that some enterprising Jehu has- not put a '' coach and four ' to run brtween Parramatt? and Sydney. I think, Mr. td it or . yon will a^ree with me, that a ride to Sydney, behind four ..pankini; hor«e*, well driven, on the tine summer mornings, u-oiild be most exbilerating and healthy, instead of bcinp penned up in a railway carriage for the same journey; and besides which one could be dropped in Genree-street at the most convenient snot to the hut-ines* houses he intends to call at. I notice you have parcels' vans between the two places, and whv not passenjier coaches '?

The horse set off at a rapid pace on his own res ponsibility, and Mr. Hickman was, of course, I | quadruped, making too sharp a turn atBcnnett's i corner, overset the vehicle and spilled the occupant out on to terra Jiniui. Fortunately, Mr. Hickman was no worse for his fall, and the cart was but slightly damaged. Mr. J.

Mr. Madden. and Mr. R. J. Luke, respectively, occupied the pulpit. The Baulkham Hills Hotel is, we bear, about to change hands. The present pro prietor, Mr. Stephens, is shortly leaving the district, and Mr. Cowell, of Ermington, will take over the business. At the Public School the children are busily engaged making gardens, in order to compete for a prise of 2s 6d worth of seeds offered by Messrs. Yates and Co. for the best specimen of juvenile horticulture. The fruit prospects are gloomy, in the opinion of Mr. Irwin, fruitgrower of Baulkham Hills.

CARLINGFORD. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 5 October 1895

CABLINGF0BD. It is reported that shearing will commence on Mr. Hockley's sheep farm to-day (Saturday). The clip, we believe, will be quite up to the average. We wonder that ' the authorities ' do not tak$ some steps m the matter of repairing the Pennant Hills' Road, which, beyond the point where the melalling tends j. is in a dreadful state. Thio is one of the 'oldest roads in the colony, and a good deal of traffic passes over it daily. Mr. Black's coach has to traverse it several times each day, and the condition of the ncinet&lled portion, after rain, must prove a serious hindrance to hini ? It is said that the matter has been brought under the notice of Mr. Farnell, M.L.A., who will try to get a sum placed on' the Estimates for the repair of, at any rate, a part of this well-nigh impassable highway. .
