Not Knowing What Else to Do. To save ourselves trouble end suffering by learning from tho experionco of others — Hint is the wisdom of history.

Farmers, Pay Your Sons. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 6 May 1898

Farmers, Pay Your Sons. Why do some farmers' sons become discontented with life on the farm, and evince a disposition to earn their living amongst other surroundings? asks the Australasian. The reason is that in quitu a large number of instances they are treated as servants, but without a servant's pay. lhey have to do their share— often mere than their share — of the farm work, and assume at times a considerable amount of responsibility, while their remuneration very frequently consists of nothing more than tho food they eat and the clothes they wear. Id is hardly a matter for wonder that young fellows beoome dissatisfied under the circumstances, and elect to try their fortunes elsewhere. Parents, as a rule, do not place sufficient trust in their families, do not teach them self-reliance and do not remunerate them for tho services they render, and for which others would have to be paid if the young peoplo were not there to do the work. On rare occasions one meets with a farmer who ...

The Tweed Election. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 6 May 1898

The Tweed Election. A MuLLUMiiiMBY correspondent writes to tho Bai/lina Bkacon : — 'If tho General Election had immediately followed Mongher's visit to tho Tweed, lie would have boon returned, so great was tho impression he made upon tho elec tors at tho time. But now it -would appear his speeches have fallen on barren cround. In fact, tnaay who looked upon him as tho sup erior of the ordinary Domain apouter now yearn for Willard with his schomo of Government control of the sugar business. Willard'a schome is the establishment of a sugar refinery — not necessarily in Sydney — and crushing mills in central localities (say, four on tho Clarence, four on tho Richmond and four on the Tweed). The cost of each mill is sot down at £10,000, and the refinery at £80,000 — total cost of plant, £200,000. Surely the State could run a business of this kind with profit just as well aa it can run experimental forms, tho railways, the post-office, the scrub-cutting, and even sand hhiftiug.'

Sydney Cricketers' Tour. Iredale's Views, In tho Australian Stau of tho 2nd instant, Frank Iredale discourses on tho visit of the Sydney team to the North Coaat. Wo oxtract the following criticisms on the Clarence play and players : — Tho Graf ton batsmen found no dmculty in negotiating our bowling, which strange to say, did not; not get up aa did the Bowling on the other aide. Though tho style of tho batsmen was very crude — there wafl little or no finish about it — there can be no doubt that the Grafton men pooseas a number of good strokes. Some of the cutting indulged in by Want would pass muster anywhere, The great bat of the team, C. Eggitis, though he did mako 35, did not impress me as much as Want, though the latter has an awkward stand at tho wickets. Ford is a hard, dutermlned player, who could bo easi.y instructed, and I have no doubt would in time do equally aa well on turf as he does on the other kinds of wickets.
