At Rosehill. AN EXCITING RACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 5 October 1895

At Rosehill. AN EXCITING RACE. On Saturday, as was intimated in our last, an interesting match, for £10 aside, came off on the Rosehill Bocecoursc, between Mr. Alf. Power's Little One and Mr. Alf. Fuller's Forest Queen. Owing, no doubt, to the strong counter attraction of the bicycle races going on in the rant, tne numoer 01 spectators was \ limited, not more than about a hundred of those more or le6s interested in the race, or tbe owners, being assembled. One looked in vain for the usual sccncs with which the classic turf at Rosehill is associated. No vociferous bookies clamoured for patronage, or offered to back the 'feeyuld' at fabulous priccs. The little crowd that had gathered was a wonder fully quiet and silent one. Little groups of men were dotted here and there, apparently discussing weighty stable secrets, or criticising the appcnrance nnd con dition of the two competitors. Opinions seemed to be pretty equally divided as to the probable result, but the most striking feature...

Local and General. PARRAMATTA PARK ORATORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 5 October 1895

Local and General. PARKAMATTA PARE OB A TOBY. The delightful feeling of pleasurable Antici pation experienced by even the most amiable of mortals when looking forward to the a]) preaching discomfiture of another, was enjoyed by many of the Park frequenters on Sunday afternoon. Oneof the most prominent preachers rejoices in the surname ol Tucker, and, having record to the venerable gentleman's physique, this cognomen would seem to be not altogether inappropriate. Mr. Tucker, on a recent occa sion, indulged in some expressions anent the Chief Justice, and other great men in both the religious and secular worlds, that were deemed, to say the least of them, disrespectful, and it was rumoured last Sunday that some person unknown had considered it his duty to report these observations to the authorities in Sydney. Possibly, in consequence of some such action, it was noticeable on Sunday that our Parra raatta Inspector and Sergeant, with a tunic of plain-clothed and uniformed constables an...

CANLEY VALE. A Pathetic Tale of a Pig. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 5 October 1895

CANLEY VALE. A Pathetic Tale of a Pig. A sow, the property of the well-known pig-farmer, Mr. Arthur Wise, recently underwent a somewhat distressing ex perience. Some months ago this un lucky animal had the misfortune to dislocate one of its hind legs by mad- 1 vertantly stepping in a hole during & temporary fit of absence of mind. With the skilled aid of & neighbour, Mr. Thompson^ the limb was restored to its proper position, and the pig, having l^in quiescent for a space of two months, — ruminating, doubtless, on the folly of walking heedlessly through life, perfectly recovered, got up, went about its business as usual, and finally gave birth to a fine litter of piglets. But alas 1 it's troubles were not ended. A familiar friend, maddened with envy at the sight of the flourishing progeny, one day turned upon it in wrath, and bit it so fiercely as to completely fracture one of ita legs. Ag&iq the qid of Mr. Thomp son was invoked, tbe limb wag 00$ in in© most ...
