High Class Cattla. Mr. T. N. Grieson, who baa jast returned from Melbourne informs as that ha has bought nine bulls from the Hon. W. McCnlloch's famous herd, amongst .them be ing the famous TJull, Grand Dvke of Water loo, which he describes as a splendid animal, and be considers, the best shorthorn In Aus tralia, air. unerson also purchased seres Holstein cattle. The mflk-produeing quali ties of these animals are of a very high order, eolipsing that of any other breed. When the BodaUa «tad sales are firmly established, we have no donbt the Holateins will attract the attention of our dairy farmers, and usurp the diminutive Ayrshire ; the former being a fair beef producing breed, a point which cannot be credited to the popwlar Ayrshire. However, be that as it ' may, these Importa tions of high olasB stock will in a few yean do nttoh to break down the aelf-complaoenae which obtains amongst some of our dairymen as to the superiority of their herds.

The Purity of Pedestrianism in Danger. [Newspaper Article] — The Moruya Times and South Coast Journal — 30 October 1889
The Purity of Pedertrianiim in Danger. Amongst our local peds thecomingSbefBeld Handicap of £60 to be run at Coila on the 9th proximo, is a fruitful source of conversation of the Crickism type. Report saith that one of the runners by means of alittle 'stiff' busi ness managed to deceive at least one of the handicappers, and thus be placed on a mark where he must win if on the job. So say the « canneu ' push. This reminds as of Farkee and the Davies vote- of £1100, only that the Premier is called a tactician, and the pad,— well, ask Bill'Tier or Charlie Simon. Now, it is a matter of almoti national con oern when the spotless parity of tho running track should thns be threatened ; and we feel it to be a most regrettable and lament able circumstance that Ooila should have given birth to thejfarf pieoe of 'stiff' busi-. ness in the district ; although we have reason to believe that at Botany some suspicious running has taken plaoe. In the erent of the rumour mentioned proving to be true...
The Convent Concert. [Newspaper Article] — The Moruya Times and South Coast Journal — 30 October 1889
The Convent Concert On Thursday evening the above was held in the Mechanics Institute, and the popularity of the programme, together with the worthy object for which it was performed, was practically demonstrated by the packed house which greeted the overture. Large crowds stood round the doors, and many were nnable to seoure even that small privelege. Mr. J. J. Ooffey occupied the chair. When we state that there were 24 items on the programme, besides a farce en titled ' The Limerick Boy,' our readers will easily understand, that to review each effort with anything like fairness, would absorb more space than we have at our disposal, However, we feel that we cannot with jus tice or courtesy allow the opportunity to pass without saying a few words in admiration of tho zeal for a good object, whioh induced Miss Costello to come all the way from Araluen in order to assist. Further comment we will not make, except to say that in every way the entertainment was a success ; the con cludin...
Kameruka Cheese. [Newspaper Article] — The Moruya Times and South Coast Journal — 30 October 1889
Xameruka Cheese. . Mr. W. W. Wren, manager of Kameruka Estate, received the following, dated 15th inst, from Mr. Henry Clarke j — ' Dear Sir, — „ I am wiring you to send it double sup ' ply of Woluiula cheese next steamer, and ' trust you will be able to do so, as I have ' large orders on hand and cannot execute Lflera. w/mt both oj cneeet areptmnjw ana 'dvUaftalt.' This, comingfrom a gentleman of the extensive business that Mr. Clarke commands and as being the representative in the metropolis of many of the best Bega brands of cheese, says a deal for the manage ment of the Kamernka Estate, and of the merits of Mr. Ferrit, the manipulator of the cheese sought. [We take the above from the Canielo Union, and as there appears no donbt as to its authenticity we consider the passage we have italiciBed full of suggestiveneas. The idea of Sydney dealers calmly waiting for Kameruka cheese, whilst other sorts are plentiful and dull of sale is startling. If -tikis is true in its entirety the ...
Searle, the Champion Oarsman. [Newspaper Article] — The Moruya Times and South Coast Journal — 30 October 1889
Searle, tbe Champion Oarsman. e Timei London cable says : O'Connor s beaten to-day as completely, with seem ; ease, as if he had been an amateur, al iugh, in fact, his time over the course s the best ever made. His competitor seemed at every stage, after Dorsetville had 'been passed, to be scnlling slowly, so obvious ?was Searle's superiority. There was no doubt in any mind that Searle had greater 8trfll)gth|B- better style, and a ?finer mastery -of the art than any of his predecessors in the championship. He, too, may go on as Haitian did, but to-night there could be probably found more money here to back him against the world than has ever been ready to put on any other sculler. Searle's stroke, slow and machine-like, with a drag ging sweep somewhat novel in mechanical -deliberation, curiously contrasted with O'Connor's nervous pulling. He could have -won by much more than 20 sees, if he had chosen,] for he visibly took it easy and was notably fresh at the finish, whereas the ^Can...
A Ragusa Rascal. [Newspaper Article] — The Moruya Times and South Coast Journal — 30 October 1889
A Ragusa Rascal. A trial involving circumstances of an ex ceptionally romantic character will come bo fore the Tribunal of Ragusa shortly (says Home Newt). About twenty years ago a peasant of the neighbourhood of Ragusa, be ing no longer able to support his wife, emi grated to the United states, leaving his bet tor half in charge of the village priest. From the first luck smiled on him, and he was able to send the priest fifty florins a month for his wife. As his position im proved he increased the amount of his month ly remittances ; but the rascally reverendo only handed five florins a month to the woman. This went on for fifteen years, when this worthy clerical gentleman forged a certificate of the husband's death, and .placed it in the hands of his wife, whose ?death he like certified in the forged docu ment and sent it to the husband in America. -Shortly afterwards «e piously betook himself toCorin, where he hoped to spend the re mainder of his days in peace, rejoicing in the r...

Professor Huxley on Smoking. [Newspaper Article] — The Moruya Times and South Coast Journal — 30 October 1889
PiofesBor Huxley «n Smoking. At a debate upon ' Smoking,' among tte memberaof the British Association, many speakers denounoed and others advocated the practice. .Professor Huxley said I ' For forty yean of my life, tobacoo has been a aeaaiy pouon w nu. \uma mean from vm mii-tdhaetonitt: In my youth, as a medical student, I tried to smoke. In vain, at every freah attempt my insidious foe stretched me prostrate on the floor. (Repeated CUert.) I entered the navy ; again I tried to smoke, and again met with defeat. I hated tobaooo I could almost lent my support to any insti tution that had for its object the pntting of tobacco smokers to death. (Voetfmnu Ap plmut.) A few years ago I was in Brittany with some friends. We went to an inn. They began to smoke. They looked very happy, and outside it was very wet and dis* mal. I thought I would try a cigar. (Xttnmm.) I did so. (Gnat Expectations.) I smoked that cigar; it was delicious I (Groans.) From that moment I was a changed man ; and I ...
A Pug in Parliament. [Newspaper Article] — The Moruya Times and South Coast Journal — 30 October 1889
A Pug in Parliament John L. Snllivan, champion puncher of the world, is looking for glory in more peaceful fields. He announces his intention of running for Congress to represent a ward in his native city, Boston, in the Parliament of his great and glorious Republic. This is no reporter's sensation, bat a solid tact, ruing oi _ we evanescent honours of the ring, John L. thinks he has earned enough of the gratitude of the people by his fistic ability in the honor of his country to cause them to elect him as a fit and 'proper person to represent them, or a section of them, in Congress. There would be noth ing surprising in learning that Sullivan had been sent in either. He is wonderously popular, and never more so than now. He ' belongs to what is known as a ' Pat Collins ' district. Ultra Irish-American and Democra* tio to a degree. It has 7000 of a Democratic majority, and its elections are controlled by the Irish vote. Those who know the district well say if Sullivan would only kee...

ODDS AND ENDS. Candelo Spring Meetiag renamed a profit of £23 and the club purpose holding another on the 9th November, whioh includes a Han dicap of £25. A Bega consignee (says Standard) was charged 7s 6d per ton on crockery betweea England and Sydney, and the freight from tho lattor port to Tarthra is four times as much. Strained relations exist between Bege and Candelo over the dates of the Annual Race meetings, the latter averring that Bega had jumped their day. Mr. D. Christie Murray says that England has an easy satisfaction in the loyalty of her colonies, but what he personally desires to hear more of is the loyalty of bngland to her colonies. Mr. Crick, addressing his constituents at Newbridge on Thursday, asserted that the Sydney freetrade papers were trying tohound him ont of Parliament. He did not intend, however, to alter one iota, except that he would try' to keep his temper. Veterinary surgeon : What's the matter with you now, Patsy t— I told you to put the powder in a...
