TO TOE EDITOR OP THE RICHMOND RIVER HERALD. CORAKI-CASINO ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 24 June 1887
to the editor of the Richmond river heraldI . CORAKI-CASINO ROAD. Sir, — Kindly allow me space to make a few remarks concerning the road botwoon Coraki and South CDdrington. I consider it is . a ., standing disgraco to tho publio of Coraki that they do not exert themselves to havo the newly- . surveyed road cleared of all obstacles that uro now upon it. In perusing. ' Fair Play's' - letter in last week's Herald I notice he states - that Mr. Barling snid when the crois were frathnred the obHtacleH wnnlrl hn rpmnvfid T do not think Mr. Barling has that disoretionary power to give. The obstacles should have been removed at once. I considor tho public have been vory forbearing to allow the said road to be closed against them for the last 18 years. If the Road Superintendent don't put in an appearance vory soon I should urge upon the business poople of Coraki to petition the Miuister for Mines to huve tho road cleared aud made passable. If this is not done it will . be the means of drivi...

The Timber Industry. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 24 June 1887
llie Timber 0 industry. WiTn reference to the deputation re cently introduced by Mr. R. Buvdett Smith, M.L.A,, asking the Government for a sum of £1000 to send delegates to England to promote the timber industry of this colony, that gentleman has re ceived a letter intimating that the Mini ster forMineshaving submitted thematter to the Cabinet, the Government came to tho conclusion that it is not one calling for ,the;expenditure. of public, funds, ? but one rather where the 300 sawmill-owners may, by the expenditure of the small sum of £3 10s. each, raise the required amount. Should the sawmill-owners not think fit to adopt this plan (although, it is pointed out, several have written to the press expressing their willingness so' to do), then, the. letter states, there are people in Sydney who are prepared to make advances upon shipments of timber and send them to good agents in London, who will find a market for them at good prices.

A jDiSAProxNTEij 'farmer writes:— -Tho basest fraud on earth is agriculture, Tlio deadliest lignisfafemsth&t ever glittered to beguile, and dazzled to betray is agric ulture. I speak with feeling on this subject, for I'vo been glittered and beeuilcd. and dazzled and destroyed by this same arch deceiver. Sho has made mo a thousand promises and brokon every one of them.

Strange Disease In Cattle. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 24 June 1887
Strange Disease in Cattle. A strange disease has appeared amongst some cattle in the Warwick district, Queensland. A number of cattle pur chased .in . the Dalby - district passed through the district about a month ago, en route for this colony 30: were drafted from the mob by the owner or person in' charge, and left on agistment in a paddock near Warwick; : : Seven of these died' within a week, and five others were not expected to recover. The symptoms are, great, swelling in the hind feet, and large sores between the hair and - hoof, .with sores also on the legs and thighs. It has been suggested that the disease may be caused by the presence of ergot or smut, on! the gras3, as it is . known that ergot has a somewhat similar effect on cattle, causing dry gangrene in the feet and legs, the hoofs ? and portions of the legs in many instances falling off.
The Art of Boiling Potatoes. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 24 June 1887
' The Art of Boiling JL'otatoes. Not one housekeeper out *of 10 knows how to boil potatoes properly. Here is an Irish method — one of the best we know. Clean wash the potatoes and leave the skin on ; then bring the water to a boil and throw them in. As soon as boiled soft enough for a fork to be easily thrust through them, dash some cold water into the pot, let the potatoes remain two minutes, and then pour off the water. This done, half remove the potlid, and let the potatoes remain oyer, a slow .fire till the steam is evaporated ; then peel, and set them on' the table in- an- open dish. Potatoes of good kind, thus cooked will always be sweet and dry and mealy. A covered dish is bad for potatoes; as it keeps the steam in and makes them soft and watery.
A Novel Military Machine. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 24 June 1887
f ? ' . T „ - i. » , - A lliovel Military ? Tiie: Daily- Wews of' April 20 sap: — ' People in many London thoroughfares must have been considerably, astonished yesterday by tho appearance of a strange looking vohicle speeding swiftly along propolled by 10 riders, who sat all in a row like the crew of an elongated Uni- j versity rowing boat. This novelty in j means of locomotion was on its way to Aldershot, whero by the authority of the War Office, it will be severely tested with a view to, its adoption for military opera tions. It is Messrs. Singer and Co.'s latest adaptation of their ' Victoria ' . or' ' Pour-in-hand ' quadricycle, and it is intended for the rapid ? transport of in fantry from ono point to anothor. When fully manned ' it ; carries ,' 12 men, who can take with thom, if ordered, a light baggage cart or ammunition waggon. The advantages of mounting mon thus in (single ? file instead of tjvo or four abreast are, first of all, that the machine is moro manageable, and, s...
Frightened to Death by a Cat. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 24 June 1887
Frightened to Death by a Cat. At the inquest held on Tuesday at New castle on the body of Annie Taylor, who died suddenly ion .Monday \ last, the evidence showed that the deceased was a strong and healthy girl of 23 years of age, and a domestic servant. While sbe was in the shop of Mrs. Peacock, her employer, just after eating a hearty dinner, a diseased cat crawled into the shop, groaning, horribly. . The deceased was frightened, and ran upstairs into her bedroom, when she became unconscious.' Medical aid was unavailing, and death ensued in less than three hours., A verdict was returned of death from par alysis of the brain, caused by sanguineous apoplexy, probably induced by flight.
The s.s. Richmond. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 1 July 1887
The m.r. Richmond. The steamer Richmond, which was re cently purchased by Messrs. Donald and Edenborough, of Auckland, and has just had very extensive alterations and im provements effected in her to fit her for the South Sea Island trade, wos taken from Mort's Dock and Engineering Co's. wharf over to Berry's Bay, to have her compasses adjusted. While turning in the bay she unfortunately ran ashore, close to Moreland's boathouse, on a ledge , of rocks that runs out a considerable dis tance. The engines were at once rever- ' sed, but the vessel remained fast ; and ! it was not until the assistance of two j tugs, which were helped by the rising tide had been secured, that the Richmond got afloat again. So far as could be seen at the time no damage was done, and the Richmond then proceeded down the j harbour for a trial of her machinery. The result is said to have been very sat- 1 isfactory. During the evening a diver : was sent down to examine tbe ship's bot- 1 torn, and his report wa...

Hens for Winter Layers. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 1 July 1887
Hem for Winter Layer*. I One reason why large breeds of fowls are better winter layers is becauso their greater size makes them less susceptible to severe cold, The large breeds also moulr early, and are in full leather when winter comes, whioh gives them greater hardi ness. Moulting also, takes for growing feathers the strength and food which hould go to egg production. The persistent layers through the summer are good for little or nothing in the winter, but a lien that moulted in warm weather will, if not too fat, lay when eggs are scarcest and dearest.
Murder Will Out. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 1 July 1887
Murder Will Out. At the coroner's inquest, on the Castle reagh- street shooting case in Sydney, the other day, further important evidence was given tending to throw the gravest doubt on the statement of Borsboom that his wife shot herself. The appearance of an old dressing gown found in tho bedroom where Mrs Borsboom was lying dead in bed, pointed to to the conclusion that it was hold close to the revolver when it was dis charged at Mrs. Borsboom, although Bors boom stated that when his wite sat up m bed to shoot herself she had no bedolothes ovor the upper part of her body. It was also shown that the revolver had been wi-~ed on one of the bed sheets after its discharge, whereas Borsboom stated he did not see the weapon from the time his wife shot herself until it was picked up by the constable. It also appeared, ftom the evi dence of inmates of the house, that fully two or threee minutes elapsed between the discharge of the revolver and the time Borsboom unlocked the door and told ...
A Jubilee Nugget. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 1 July 1887
A Jubilee Nugget. We have groat pleasure in recording the arrival in Mudgee on Tuesday evening, from Maitland Bar, of a nuggot weighing no less than 347 ounces. It was frund by Messrs. Leeder, Thorpo, and Isaac Holmes, who have, for the last month, been working in the shallow alluvial about 300 or 400 yards from the bank ofthe Meroo River, at Maitland Bar. The nugget was found at a depth of only seven feet from the surface, and holes had been sunk all rouud it. This is one of the largest nuggets ever louuu in Australia, ami it is certuiu tuuu nothing like it has ever before (at any rate since the discovery of their great specimen by Beyers and Holterman) beeu found iu this district. Mr. Stacy, the manager of the Commercial Bank, estimates its value at more than £1200. During the last few days a perfect furoTe has been created in Ballarat by the discovery of a nugget weighing l*67oz. — less than half tho weight ot our jubilee nugget. — Mudoee Po;t.
Editorial Note. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 1 July 1887
Editorial Note. An editor, having been sick for a long time, perceived that his lattor end was approach ing. His spiri unl adviser comforted him by saying that ho, the editor, would soon eutor into his eternal rest, 'Where there would be no more worry and trouble. ' Are printers allowed in Heaven, too ? ' feebly asked the dying man. ' Certainly, if thov have boen good.,' 'Then,' responded the editor, feebly, ' I have no hone. Mv foreman died last year, and as ho was a good man he must be in heaven. I know I won't be in Heaven more than five|minutes before I'il I hear bim say ' More Copy I ' I don't see how I can make anything by dying.' And pulling on his boots and clothes tho editor went down to the office and ground out a column editorial on 'The Conflict between Religion and Science,' and about four columns of miscellaneous brevities, having previously refreshed himself with a cock tail and thrashed two personal friends who wanted to give him advice how to run his paper.

An Extraordinary Story. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 1 July 1887
4n Extraordinary (Story. A rumour of amost extraordinary and sensational character, whioh, if true, would seriously shake public confidence in senten ces pronounced on circumstantial evidence, is (says the London correspondent of the South Australian Eeoister) being whis pered about amongst the clerks at the Home Office. Some yoars ago a young man, a butler named Lee, was sentenced to doath for murdering his mistress and benefactress, an elderly maiden lady re siding at Babbicombe, near Torquay. The case attraoted a lot of attention at the nine, una your reauoru win prouauiy ru membor the facts well. I may remind them, however, that the lad all through stuck firmly to his innocence. On the scaffold thoro was a ghastly and shocking scene. Threo times the hangmau tried to do his duty, and three times the rope broke, till at lengthy the sheriff refused to allow tho execution to proceed. In accordance with precedent in suoh cases, tho capital sentence was then commuted, and Lee sent to ...
