STATION PEODUCE SALES. The Sydney Wool-selling Brokers5 Association re port that sales were held yesterday as under : — Sheepskins. — Moderate supplies of sheepskins were submitted.

WEST MAITLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 23 May 1896
WEST MAITLAND. _ *v — — — — (From our own Correspondent,) In my report of the Waratah Deaf and Dumb Insti tution ball, I inadvertently omitted the names of Misses Annie Ternes and Cora Daly, who had no small share in decorating the supper room. It ia stated that when a few small accounts have been settled the ladies of the committee will bo able to hand over the handsome sum of .£80 to the superior ess of tho institution. And here it is not out of place to thank the ladies of other denominations who so generously placed their assistance at the dis posal of the committee in order to ensure success. There is no reason why the Waratah ball should not be an annual event in West Maitland. The badge matches, under the auspices of the Northern Rugby Union, opened here on Saturday. At East Maitland, the Easts secured a forfeit from the Singleton footballers, who did not appear on tho ground. On tho Maitland Park, Maitland United C. beat Newcastle Norwoods by 9 points to 4-.

CENTRAL TOWNSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 23 May 1896
CENTRAL TOWNSHIP. Wherever there are sacrifices to be made, hard work to be done, and little or no remuneration for it, there you will find the Sisters of .St. Josoph. Far from the maddening crowd, and even from the noise of a wheel, near the head of Middle Harbour, right in the centre of bushland, one suddenly comes upon the modest little school of St. Josoph. More over fifty little ones come to school to be tamed, to learn to read and write, and, above all, to learn the catechism and the old story of the Saviour's love for little children. The good Sisters walk three miles every morning to reach this school, and have the consolation of knowing that they &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; will have the same delightful promenade on their way home in the ovening. Many of the ohildren are as poor as the Sisters. Only for this little .school most of the children, as a good priest informed the writer, would have been Pagans ; none of them could have known the consoling truths ...
IRISH NEWS. IRELAND FOR TOURISTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 30 May 1896
IRISH NEWS. (From Conti£Mi?oiia.hies. ) IRELAND FOR TOURISTS. Paradoxical as it may sound with the word Ireland ringing eternally in our ears, it is nevertheless true that wo know comparatively little of the country. The blame does not lie altogether on this side of the Channel. It is mainly the fault of the Irish themselves. They havo been too fond taking the quid and leaving the quo to look after itself. Until the last few years touring' in In1 land was a very modified pleasure ; in many parts of tho country it is bo still. The Irish have done little hitherto to encourage the stranger within their gates to conic back aimin. They irive him a warm welcome, no doubt — a hundred thousand of them, it' ho likes, for they are the most 'civil spoken.' peoplo in tho world. But no amount of talk will compensate the tourist for the absence of good and woll-cooked food, clean beds, and a decently-furnished room, where he can stretch his limbs in comfort after the day's journey is done. The ho...
THE IRISH LANGUAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 30 May 1896
THE IRISH LANGUAGE. The Rev. Professor Heuebry, who has just been appointed to the Celtic Chair founded by the Ancient Order of Hibernians at the Catholic University of America, Washington, DC, recently addressed a crowded meeting of the Liverpool Irish Literary Society. Tho rev. professor dealt with tho Irish lan guage, and gave a wealth of facts to explain tho details of the subject, to show tho popular errors about it, and to index the principal Tvish scholars of more reoout times. Tho active use of Irish ceased in the seven teenth century, and Dr. Gooff roy Keating was one of the last scholars of that timo. Irish glossaries began to appear about the timo of tho Union, and tho dis cussions at that period on tho round towers led to tho establishment of the. Dublin Gaelic Society in 1808. This was followed by the Ossianic Socioty, tho Arch aeological Society, and others, which did more or less good. O'Flanagnn and Halliday wore the scholars of this movement. Then later on camo Eugo...

AQUATICS. THE INTERCOLONIAL RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 30 May 1896
AQUATICS. The Intercolonial Races. The final events of the intercolonial contests took place on Saturday last. The weather was most un favourable, rain falling at intervals, and a stiff, cold southerly blowing all day. Victoria won the Intercolonial Four-oar Race from New Zealand by a length and a half. Our men were a bad third. The Intercolonial Sculling Race was won by M. Slack (Queensland), Bannister being second, and McCormick third. Bannister, the New South Wales representative, moved well. He lost the lead at Hen and Chicken Bav. and though he subsecmentlv re covered the lost ground the Queenslander came home a winner by four lengths. New South Wales did not manage to pull off any of the three intercolonial races. The intercolonial crews were entertained at dinner last Saturday. Mr. E. 3M. Dietrich presided, and about 100 aquatic men were present. St. Ignatius' College Regatta. The prizes won at St. Ignatius' College Rowing Club's Regatta will be distributed by Sir George Dibb...

OBITUARY. Death of Miss Jane Frances Lennon. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 30 May 1896
OBITUARY. . ? „ ^* i I, Doath of Miss Jane Frances Lennon. We are sorry to record the death, at the early age of 21, of an estimable young lady in tho person of Miss Jane Frances Lennon, which took place on April 15, at tho residence of her relatives, 26 St. Aubyn's-road, Upper Norwood, London. The sad and unexpected tidings reached her sister, Mrs. Brosnan, wife of Mr. J. P. Brosnan, editor of the Narandera Argus, so avoII known in tho Western district, last week. The young lady, who Avas halo and hearty, and in tho prime of life, had had the advantages of a most liberal educa tion bestowed on her, having boon educated in one of tho foremost seats of learning in Franco for the training and education or Catholic girls. We refer to tho Convent doa Ursulinos, in A Bayeaux.

CYCLING. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 30 May 1896
CYCLING. The Parramatta branch of tho Noav South Wales League of Wheelmen held their annual sports gathering on tho local cricket ground on Monday. The second day's racing will be held to-day (Saturday). W. Martin, tho American champion, won the Lap trials, 41.9yds., in 28 3-5sec. He also annexed the Ton Miles Championship of Noav South Wales and the Birthday Handicap. From files of English papers to hand we learn that Michael, the champion Welsh rider, has been essaying to loAver Linton's five-mile and ten-mile records, but so far Avithout success. In the case of the latter, however, it is stated that had the pacing been better Michael Avould have succeeded. It seems the tandem could not keep him at a proper speed, and the Welsh man was continually urging his Avould-bo pacers to go faster. Ho, nevertheless, did the distance in 20min. 39sec, 21sec. behind Linton. Huret, a Avell-known French cyclist, recently rode 100 miles in the magnificent time of 3 hours 39min. 39 l-5sec. He cove...
"TELEGRAPH" CANT. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 30 May 1896
'TELEGRAPH' CANT. (Byde Electorate Times.) Under the title of ' Notes of the Day,' that pro found Daily Telegraph writer, ' Outis ' expatiates upon the subject of bazaar raffles, apropos to tho Victorian Presbyterian deputation on the question. The writer characterises the bazaar raffle as a sample i of the very worst kind of gambling. ' In a bet,' says 'Outis,' 'there is a definite stake to be won. But the bazaar raffle only gives to the successful speculator a thing that probably is not worth the money he put in it. The promoters of the raffle don't give anything like fair value for what they get, and most frequently violate moral law in two ways — firstly, by encouraging gambling, and, secondly, by raffling an article for twenty shillings that is not worth more than tAventy pence.' Superficial talk like this is dirt-cheap. Considering that bazaar raffles for unworldly objects are obviously referred to, it is absurd to assume the profit-and-loss attitude, as the Avriter does, in t...
