A SILLY PARAGRAPH. I A silly paragraph, or paragraphs appeared in the Telegraph on Monday last. Iiaving refer ence to the visit of the Premier to Parramatta on Saturday. It was stated that Mr. H. Taylor met tbe Hon. O. H. Held in the street and told him of the arrest of Crick aud Meafher. where* rx-n the Premier turned as white as a ghost, and dashed into the local telegraph office, and telephoned for particulani, and then darted citywards. As a matter of fact Mr. Beid knew before he got anywhere near Mr. Taylor, the facts. He had been into the telegraph office to send away a private wire, when Mr. Taylor spotted him as he hailed a cab. The ex-member for Parrarantta rushed I over, and effusively greeted Mr. R»id, who to I one of onr reporters (standing a few feet away) ' seemed strangely cold and diplomatic. Mr. Taylor made some remark like 'I thought I something like this would happen,' a.'.d the | Premier then got into the cab and said to the driver ' Station.' This was pretty ear...

£ ^2HB-CPEAN' JURY. I [?] he advanced ; and they followed that line of light all a]ong. Four jurymen refrained from saying 41 guilty ' when the twelve first divided. Then tbe evidence of Mrs. Dean, Dean and the doctor, being repeated, all save one agreed to convict as said before, that one plainly stated that he would bring in no verdict to hang any man. Only when the judge promised to recommend the prisoner to mercy, if the jAy, convicting, so desired him to do, did the one 'in-' give in. He said then, in the jury box, 11 1 give in.' But tbe foreman was not satisfied on so important a matter, without a formal division. May be, .Judge Windeyer went out of his way to give the jury a warning about possibly being locked up till Monday, and for this reason,— He knew of the sad event in the foreman's home. He knew that the juiy were in ignorance ot that calamity ; and he knew, too, 'thqt Mrs. McCredie was ill at home, and that the foreman's eldest son would be buried without his fHlher k...

LOCAL MUSIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 12 October 1895

LOCAL MUSIC. We have reoeived a copy of Mr. C. S.Childe's creation, ' The Dance of Dryads,' arranged from the fantasia for orchestra, ' Night in the Forest' (performed bv the SydLney Amateur Orchestral Society). The composition is rich in musical merit ; and though its features tax somewhat, at first, the skill oi those who enter upon a search after its beauties, those beauties when discovered prove ample to repay all ap plication, diligence and enthusiasm. An am-, bitious effort from jthe penof Lthe young music master at the King s School is ' the Dance ; ' but it proves incontestibly that Mr. Childe has not only the soul for apprehending the higher glories of the queen of the arts ; but has also a practical knowledge of technique and a dash of originality which should cause his name to be heard of, with honour, in the future.

PHRENOLOGY. On Tuesday evening last, the Rev. Philip Moses, gave a most amusing parlour entertain* ment in the Congregational Hall, on 'Love, Courtship, and Marriage, by Phrenology.' There was a good attendance, and the lecturer gave a most amusing description of the pro and young woman first meet, till they enter (in some cases) the Divorce Court. Mr. MoBes also explained bow ' bumps ' are formed, and showed that as certain portions of the brain are used more than others, they grow; and as they grow they foroe the 6kull outwards, making portions of the head somewhat promin- j ent. Having learnt the principles of Phreno- j logy, it was very easy for anyone to read char acter by the study of the formation of the head. The Bibliftal truth that tbe sins of tbe father visited upon the children till tho third and fourth generation he showed to be intimately connected with the science of phrenology; and that that dictum was true was, he said, a scientific fact. At the conclusion of the le...
