LOCAL AND GENERAL. THE Macleay election yesterday resulted in the retu'rn of Mr. Barton. A RESIDENT of Glenfield informs us . that; stamps caa not be obtained at the local post office. Perhaps our Postmaster-General will see that the convenience of the residents is studied in this particular. Mr. Doyle, the Hoxton Park mail-man, says " the Hoxton Park-road is at present fit for a cycling track." He is evidently " poking it" at some one. For Children's Hacking Gough take Wood's Great Peppermint. Cure, 1/6 and 2/6. THE Liverpool'Asylum'Minstrel Company intend giving an entertainment shortly in aid of .the funds of the local Ladies' Bene- volent Society. .

A few hours later j the Captain said to h'is passengers, "'The tide, is rising ; we shall be 'off-'presently-.".? Sixty minutes j more and the ship floated. It was now hoon. ! At two o?clock'sharp the impatient voyagers stepped ashore. They; might have ^ been delayed \ longer save for the one. fact whioh. the captain had announced in four ,words..

CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 1 October 1898
CHAPTER III. The village of Dorset and the whole of Dorset pariah oould not remember a time in their annuals when their chief interest had not centred around the J enifera of Chapel House. Indeed, the Jenifers had been lords of the manor long before there had been the faintest sigu of a village or even of any parish whatever. In the early days of the colony of Mary- land it waa the right of the Land Pro- prietary to make extensive granta of land to whomsoever he pleased, and it pleased him to make a grant of several thousand aorea to Daniel Jenifer, who was one of the earliest to come to the now colony. Any large traot of land constituted a manor and gave to the owner oertain rights and privileges whioh made him a person of primo importanoe, and Daniel Jenifer was not slow to make the moöt of what accrued to him, and Jenifer's Manor became one of the moat famous traota in the country. But it remained for one of his descendente to establish fully the glory of tho Jenifera, by sweepin...
