THE WEATHER PREDICTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 29 October 1889

THE WREATHES PBEDICTIONS. THE Government Astronomer's comments on Mr. EG t SON'S weather predictions have been published, but they have not attracted a great deal of atten- tion. They demonstrate that some of the prophe- cies-the majority, in fact, were not fulfilled, and the conclusion, therefore, which the public are expected to draw, is that the drought prediction will not be fulfilled. I must say that I am not satisfied with the data on which Mr. Egeson based his startling prophecy. 1 cannot shut my eyes to the fact that the cycle theory on which he relies, has not worked satisfactorily. At the same time it ia within the bounds of probability that if Mr. Egeson plods away at the important branch of physicial science to which he has devoted himself, he may hit upon a good working theory of the weather. More difficult problems than that have been solved by scientists, and there is no reason, therefore, why that one should not be solved also. But if Mr. Egeson would become a great ...

Ecclesiastical ON Sunday afternoon lost a children's flower service was held in St. Andrews' Presbyterian Church, Oliver-street, which was well attended, both by juveniles and adults. The former brought numerous bouquets, which at the conclusion of the Bervice were taken by three girls to the hospital, and a bouquet handed each patient from the large collection. Rev. A. Barron delivered an address suitable to the occasion. Daring the service, tbe prizes gained by the Sunday School pupils at the recent examination in Sydney, were presented (13 book prizes and four certificates.) Of the 17 who competed none failed to obtain recognition. The prizes are very presentable ones. A children's flower service was also held in the Church of England, South Grafton. The children, to the number of about 90, brought a large array of flowers, which were also donated to the hospital. Rev. F. E. Haviland delivered an appropriate address to children and adults, of whom there was a fair number present....

Tatham. TUESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

Tatham. TUESDAY. A VFKT important alteration has been made in our mail arrangements. The mailman leaves Coraki on Friday morning for Casino via Codrington, Tatham and the Greenridge, and returns the same day in time to catch the mail for Sydney at Coraki. Formerly the mail for Casino passed here on Saturday morning ; the consequence was that replies could not be sent to letters received by Friday's mail before the following Tuesday. The postal athori ties has done now what they were asked to do 12 months ago. IN order to show how satisfactory the ocean boats are running at present a resident here shipped a number of pigs by the drogher on Tues- day afternoon for Sydney, to be forwarded by the Tomki. The following Tuesday, at 8 a.m. o'clock, he received the account sales and cheqne for them. A FEW light showers of rain fell last week ; but not enough for our present requirements. The weather has been very hot for the last few days. THE contractors on the road between Casino and Corak...

The Jubilee Plunger. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

The Jubilee Plunger. AN eccentric man from the colonies has just passed away at Grantham, and that quiet town is likely to talk about him for many a year. Five years ago he returned from the Antipodes with a large fortune. He put his money in the bank, and pro- ceeded to run through it with an industry worthy of the " Jubilee Plunger." It was his aim to buy costly things and to destroy them, and in general to reverse the customs and ordinary actions of sane men. Herewith are indicated some of the freaká in whick he indulged :-" A valuable gold watch was smashed up immediately ; the back of a silver watch was wrenched oil so as to be moro conj venient for winding up, he said ; the Btraw was taken out of a mattress for pig bedding ; springs taken out of a new easy chair, shelves out of the house for firewood, valuable clocks broken up and thrown away, bread daily burnt on the fire ; legs of mutton and Bides of bacon were buried in tho garden ; valuable plants and trees were bought and...

The Lovely Widow and the Lucky Engineer. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

The Lovely "Widow and the Lucky Engineer1. AMONG the latest Parisian sensations, says a con^ temporary, is the Btrange case of tho " lovely widow and the lucky engineer." The son of science is only a humble worker in the lower walks of his profession, and as he was sauntering along tho banks of the Seine, near Neuilly, the other day, lazily and listlessly, he espied a tall, graceful, and charming lady, attired in widow's wceils, walking quickly down to tho water's edge. After having looked about for a moment the lady suddenly jumped into the river, and was soon floating help- lessly away on tho current. The engineer took off his coat, hat, and boots, and was in the water in the twinkling of an eye. Striking boldly out for the lady, he reached her before she Bank for the third time, and skilfully conveyed his almost lifeless burden towards an adjacent boat which had been put out from the shore by two bargees. The lady ^ and her rescuer were taken into tho craft, and « restoratives ha...

A Romance of Real Life. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

A Romance of Beal Life. A TBiAii involving circumstances of an exception- ally romantic character (says a London paper) will come before the Tribunal of Ragusa shortly. About 20 years ago a peasant of the neighbour- hood of Ragusa, being no longer able to support his wife, emigrated to the United States, leaving his better half in charge of the village priest. From the first luck smiled on him, and he was able to send the priest 50 florins a month for his wife. As his position improved, he increased the amount of his monthly remittances, but the rascally reverendo only handed five florins a month to the woman. This went on for 15 years, when this worthy clerical gentleman forged a certificate of the husband's death, and placed it in the hands of his wife, whos3 death he likewise certified in a forged document and sent it to the husband in America. Shortly afterwards he piously betook himself to Corfu, where he hoped to spend the remainder of his days in peace, rejoicing in the remem...

"Equality" in the United States. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

"Equality" in the United States. THE case of a coloured post-office clerk at Atlanta affords a pleasing example of the "equality" of the two races in America. General John E. Lewis was appointed by the present Administration postmaster at Atlanta. Two vacancies occurred in the post office, and the positions vacated had to be filled by competitive examination. Of the two competitors, one was a young man of colour, a graduate of Atlanta University, named Charles C. Penny ; the other a white man. General Lewis, knowing the feeling excited in several places of the South by having coloured clerks assigned to posts which brought them into general contact with the publio, selected for Mr. Penny that place in which the public would see the least of him. But it was not possible completely to isolate a clerk in that post office; and it seems that a young white woman already held a post in the registry department, to which Mr. Penny was assigned. It is true they were not even in the same room ...

ENCOURAGEMENT TO NATIVE INDUSTRIES. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

ENCOURAGEMENT TO NATIVE INDUSTRIES. Is it surprising that the industries of the southern colony flourish when they are nurtured by bonuses as given below? The question might well be asked whether in Kew South Wales, with her increased size, as good or even better results could not be attained if native industries were similarly fostered ? The Government of Victoria has substituted a new list of bonuses for the one which was origin- ally proposed in the Estimates of the Department of Agriculture. The difference between them con- sists in the allotment of specific amonnts to specific purposes instead of a lump sum. Instead of giving £174,000 to be divided among the indus- tries, the amount will be apportioned in this way : -To growers of grapes, fruits, and general vege- table products, including payment of bonuses upon acreage planted (a list of the products to be enumerated in the regulations above referred to) I £75,000 ; to producers of wine of best quality and standard character,...
