Righted at Last. CHAPTER XXXIII Continued. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 20 October 1888

Righted at Last. CHAPTER XXXIII Continued. 'I can forgivo,' ho said softly; 'I cnnnot forgot. — Now, let us look at the position quietly as it is. ? The only thing which has given me im interest in life is the hojio that I may be useful to j-ou. When my sorrow came upon me, it soemocl ns if the whole world had gone wrong.' (That was spoken with a kind of bitter sense of the humorous side of his sorrow.) ' Doctors would liavo called it indigestion. You see, how ever, it does not matter much to the patient whether it is merely indigestion or organic disoase, so long as he suffers from tho pangs of whatever it may be. Well, I did not die, and the doctor is entitled to his credit. I live, eat my . dinner, and am in fair health. But there is a difference : lif o lost its flavour when the blunder was made. When your mother beliovod the false report which reached her, the man who loved hor was murdored.' ' blio could not act otherwise than she did,' said Madge bravely in de fenco. ' She sh...

Carlingford. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 20 October 1888

Carlingford. Mr. J. Nobbs, M.L.A., at Carlingford. — On Saturday last, our member, Mr. John Nobbs, M.L.A , visited our district, with a view to in-   specting works in progress in which he has been taking great interest for the benefit of the fruit growers and residents. He was met at the Carlingford station, when the 9.40 train from   Sydney arrived, by Messrs. Joseph Franks and Edward Cole, who kindly conducted him in his tour. The Carlingford siding was the first place of call, and it was very pleasing to find that the workmen were busily engaged at the work. This in itself will be a great boon to the orchardists and residents of the district, and will prove an inducement to persons owning large areas to cultivate and improve the same. It will also offer encouragement to others to settle here, as they will be able to get their pro- duce to the metropolis at a great saving of time and expense, besides getting their building material and goods from the cit...

At S o'clock — the hour announced for the opening ceremony — the arrangements were not quite complete, but sufficient progress had been made by the fair hands superintending tlie . decoration and ordering of the stalls to shew that when the finishing touch had been given tho exhibition would bo in every sense of the word ' a thing of beauty,' and 'a joy,' if not ' forever,' at all events for the two days during which it would be open to the public. .
