Daily Life of an Indian Girl des cribed by Herself. The followiug document has been translated into English from the verna cular language in which it was written by a young lady of about sixteen. At the examination of a girl's school by the local committee of managers, the pupils were requested to write tho story of their daily life and avocations. The exercises which they produced were very similar in many points, but this was one of the best :— ' After getting leave from school on Saturday I went home, and put away my slate and books. I next took off my school-dress, and having put on other clothes I attended to household work. When evening came I lit the light in the house, and taking my beads Iwent to worship our God Jugonath. Having prostrated my self before the great Lord, Jugonath, I went into the house, and taking my book sat down to read. AVhen tho night was somewhat advanced, I put away my book. Then having taken my food, and washed my hands and face, I spread my bed on th...

That Asylum Again. According to a paragraph in a local papor, Mrs. Cunynghame, lato Super intendent of the Mncqurio-street Asylum, stated flint tho police had been in tho habit of bringing drunken men to her with tho request that sho would 'take them in, ' and that th« practice had been persisted in, evidently with tho desire oh.tho part of tho police of getting rid of troublesome cases. At first she had been in tho habit of receiving men of this class, but at length the custom became so frequent that sho was com polled to stand out against it. The matter was alluded to in the Assembly by Mr. Hugh Taylor, who asked tho Premier to make inquiries into it. Sir Henry Parkes replied that he had been informed by the Inspector-General of Police that Mrs. Cunynghame's state ment was absolutely untrue.

Masonic. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 1 June 1889
Masonic The installation of the Worshipful Master and officers to guide and govern Lodge Parramatta St. George for the ensuing year took place at the Masonic Hall, George-street, on Tuesday even ing. The attendance of brethren and visitors was not nearly so large as ex pected, the inclement state of the weather no doubt being responsible for this somewhat depressing circumstance. It was expected that the Grand Lodge officers would take part in the ceremony, but no doubt they were excused on the same watery plea. The attendance was not more than 35. The I.P.M., Wor. Bro. J. Watson, performed the install ation ceremony in a praiseworthy man ner, and the newly-elected Master, Wor. Bro. Alban Gee, then invested his officers as follows : — S. W., Bro. Ohas. Neale ; J.

Queen's Birthday. PARRAMATTA TROTTING AND RACE CLUB [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 1 June 1889
Queen's Birthday. PARRAMATTA TROTTING AND RACE / CLUB. ..\t»Bv Parramatta Trotting and : Race Club toty; advantage of Queen's Birthday to break into existence as. a local purveyor of amuso monts 'and sports. Their first meeting was hold at RosehiU on that day; which unfortu nately was not conspiouous for Queen's weather. Early in the morning light showers commenced to fall, and later on. in the day they fell more sharply and thickly. A cold wind, too, blew nil the day, rendering outdoor sport anything but pleasant. Under such circumstances, it was not to ho expected that tho initial meeting1 would be such a groat success numerically ; but if the attendanco did fall short of expecta tions with fino weather, evidences wero not wanting to show that, tho movo mot with tho approval of local and district people, and under proper management tho meetings of the club can be worked into a populnr local institution.

CLARKE MEMORIAL MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 1 June 1889
CLARKE MEMORIAL MATCH. This match was played on tho Parramatta cricket ground between a team selected from tho town and district clubs of tho Central Cumberland Cricket Association 13 aside. Owing to tho weather tho attendance was very poor. Tho object of tho match was to raise funds to sot a tombstone over the grave of tho livte Arthur Clarke, a well known local cricketer, who met with his death a short time ago through an accident whilst playing cricket. A novelty in tho gamo was introduced, the wickets each consisting of 4 stumps. Calver won tho toss for tho town team, and as a splen did wicket had been prepared by Panell de cided to bat. Owing to the rain setting in steadily the gamo had to bo abandoned 11 little after 3 p.m., tho town team having scored 141 for tho loss of 7 wickets. Spears 4G, D.

Sharpening Files. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 1 June 1889
Sharpening Files. Files can, it is said, be recut by cleaning them in acidulated water between two plates of carbon, aud closing the circuit so as to form a real voltaic cell. The hydrogen liberated clings to the points of tho teeth of the file, protecting them from further action ; but the cutting action proceeds f reolv ovor the re mainder of tho file. This process speedily brings back the teeth of an old file to the original shape and dimensions, and does not merely sharpen them, but practically rceuts the file, without necessitating either softeninpr or re tampering tho metal. This 'invention'* comes from America : but we don't think it is practised in an American shop where they really use files. — English Mechanic.
Parramatta Rowing Club. TO THE EDITOR OF THE CUMBERLAND ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 1 June 1889
Parramatta Rowing Club. TO THE EDITOR OF THE CUMBERLAND ARGUS. SiKj — Through yonr columns I crave leave to bring the position of the above club before the public of Parramatta. It has had to pass through a variety of trials, but the present one (which has occurred through no fault of the club) threatens to crush its life out. The late disastrous floods on the river, where tho club shed was situated, have ruined the shed, and — to speak in plain terms — have played 'Old Harry' with the boats, two of which have only within the last month been purchased by the club at a cost of £50. A new shed will undoubtedly have to be built, and this with other expenses will cost us at least £200. The club will undoubtedly en deavour to help itself to tho uttermost of its unfortunately limited means, but I should think there are a sufficient number of friends of true sport in Par ramatta to come forward with their aid, however small, lighten the burden and ' set tho ball a-rolling.' — Yours, &a...
Medical Value of some Common Medical Roots and Vegetables. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 1 June 1889
Medical Value of some Common Medical Roots and Vegetables. Celery acts upon the nervous system, and it ia a cure for rheumatism and neuralgia. To matoes stimulate tho liver, and spinach and tho common dandelion (prepared in tho same way) have a direct effect on diseases of the kidney. Onions, garlic, and olives promote digestion ?by stimulating the circulatory system, with tho consequent increase of the saliva and gastric juice. Raw onions are also regarded as a remedy for sleeplessness, and the French believe that onion soup is an excellent tonic in cases of debility of the digestivo organs. — English Mechanic.
