Another Record Beaten. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 10 June 1887
Another Record Ileatcn. Hitherto large breaks on a championship table, have been few, but Peall, who has beaten all records at the ordinary game by scoring 2000 in a break, has now sur passed previous - efforts made on a ? cham pionship table, which is made difficult by the spot being placed nearer the cushion and ; the Dockets . being, much smaller. Peall was receiving a start from Roberts of 2000 out of 10,000, and when the score_ stood Peall 6,634 and Roberts 6,027, the former electrified the audience by. compiling a break of 345, including 128 red winners. At its conclusion Peall received such an ovation as has been seldom witnessed in a billiard-room.

What are You Running Him in For. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 10 June 1887
.What are You. Running Ulna In For. A very good tale comes to us from one of tho northern districts, where an In spector of Police is said to be over-exact with regard to the men .under him. :He. is reported to be so very particular about everthing, that he even looks into the men's mouths to see if 'they' keep their teeth clean, or require a dose of salts. But whilst he is so particular about the doings and appearance of the ' rank and file,' he is quite regardless, of his own appearance, and would never be taken for an inspector. Well, not many days ago this gentlemen happened to be riding along with a policeman, when the latter met- a 'friend,; 'who wished him 'good morh'ing,' an-l pointing to to the dingy looking individual on the old horse asked, ' What are you running the old cove in for 1 ' — M.

PAYMENT OF MEMBERS V. RETRENCHMET [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 10 June 1887
PAVnGMT OF SIElllBISRl^ V. UGTRLNiHIHET. The question which was argued so keenly in the House the other night, that of payment of Members, does not seem at first to smack much of retrenchment, still there may be elements in it that wonld warrant an appeal to the old adage ' penny wise and pound foolish,' inas iimciiHH unuer certain conauions memners would-not then feel justified in wasting the time of the country, and a limit, as in the Cape Colony, of allowing payment for only so many days, might have even a more beneficial influence on an active legislation for the colony than the almost universally condemned Parliamentary gag — the cloture. As was remarked by one speaker: ' In the great aim and end of doing the busi ness of the country expeditiously and intelligently, we appear at a disadvantage in the comparison with Victoria, Queens land, and New Zealand. Whatever is desired by the people to be embodied in the laws of the country is given effect to more clearly, thoroughly, and...
Priming Fruit Trees. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 10 June 1887
Pruning Fruit Trees. Just when to prune no one can teach : nor can anyone learn from an essay how how to do the work. We can make sug gestions in a general way, but the good use of them' will depend on how -much' .'the owner loves his tree and has ;been mvuiiiBU wiiu a guujjjae ua. tuu secret history. A young * tree needs some of its branches thinned, so ? as to lay the foundation of a permanent form .—or it may not have enough branches for. this purpose, and some have to cut back to produce more, We, may desire, one strong branch where there are two or three. . week ones,,, so: . we cut them, all away to' the trunk, and the strong one will then sprout. Suckers come ont from near the roots, or sprouts from the main stem. The good orchardist takes these off with finger and thumb in the summer while green, but if forgotten, then he does it now. He learns after a while that sprouts on the trunk means something wrong with the circulation. The food-giving sap does not easily reach the en...
