The Dark Side of Bush Life. Every spring there ames a versifier who sings in tuneful jingleB the beauties nf tho buBh, and at tho time nearly everybody agrees with him. For in early September the bush is very, very beautiful. There is the. wonderful honey scent of the black wood, the sensuous smell of the musk tree; and to all men who are not blind there are beauties in the Rtar-shaped flowers of the supple-jack, nnd the graceful curve of the fern frond, and in tho heath bell, red and white, which grows best when the land is hungriest. It looks very well *hon, dne9 the country, turf underfoot, and scent in the bush on your flank, aud aloft a cloud less blue. But liko everything elae it has its faults. A few months hence and we will sen the bush in the arid season — the turf of the spring is the dust of the sum mer, and the heat shimmers and trembles whenever it strikes a white stone. There is no water in tho land, the face of the sun-baked country is horrible, and every thing but th...

Sassafras. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News and South Coast Districts Advertiser — 28 October 1893

Sassafras (from our own correspondent). The people here are still plodding along as of yore, notwithstanding bank failures and redestruction schemes, &c. Now that it has been found necessary to do away with all maintenance men on minor roads, it is hoped that all work in the future on this road at least will be let by tender. If this road could be marked out into three sections and tenders called separately for each, and the work to be started and maintained simultaneously on each separate contract, it would be far more satisfactory, and the travelling public would stand a chance of getting the full benefit of any grant to be expended thereon. Then again, when these different sections are taken over by the Roads Department from the con tractors, let tenders be called for keeping the sections in repair for three, five, or a greater number of years, payments to be made at stated times after inspection. But, however, as the work is to be done, let us have no more day labor, pai...

The defendant, Mr. Alfred Kemp .was a dog fancier, and the plaintiff, a man named Carr, bought a fox terrier from him for 'a humorous purpose,' and de fendant agreed tn take it back if he was not satisfied. He found it was lame, and now sought to get back from the defend ant the amount he paid for'it. The Judge : I suppose you found it-was not a humorous dog-(Jaughter). The plaintiff said he wanted to get rid of some lodgers, who were continually playing, and he wanted a. dot; that would 'howl al music.' If this dog had howled sufficiently he would have kept it— (laughter). Defendant knew .that this dog alwayB howled when musicians played at the public-house nezt door. The plaintiff pulled out a mouth organ and blew it, and then not only Hub dog but every dog in the shop honied. He could not warrant a dog to howl when ever wanted— (laughter). The Judge: Well, most dogs howl...

Any person having a practical knowledge of agricultural matters will readily per ceive the absurdity of this. There are few, if any, who can, even under the must favorable circumstances, readily exchange the workshop or the counter for the axe. apade and hoe. Bui there are many who have some knowledge, more or less prac tical, of agricultural work, and these should be encouraged to go upon the laud. There is many a man who could make out of a few acres of Und a decent living for himself and family. But the land must be of the right kind. It is all very well to tell a man that he can Relect 320 acres in certain districts, but in nine cases out of ten such a large area becomes a kind of white...
