To-day the locals have to meet the premier club in the colony on the University Oval, when our footballers will need to do their very best to avert defeat. The following are chosen to play :— Bartlett, Bauohop, Bowden, Brown, Calloway, A. Davey, H. Davey, Fraser, Sut torj Taylor, J. and H. Tunics', Weston, A. and C. Wiokham, M. Tunks 16, Carpenter 17. Players and supporters are requested to oatoh train leaving at 6 to 2. Kosohill v.Penrith. — This motoh was played on the former club's ground last Saturday and when time was called the scores stood Penrith 6, Rosehill 5. Although the Bosehills failed to increase their score, they played a better game than their opponents throughout, and it is only fair to them to say that the second try obtained by Penrith was under dispute, the solo umpire not seeing the play in quostion. Tries for Penrith were obtained by Hill and Carpenter, and for Rosehill by Gregg, con verted into a goal by ...

A FUNNY TRICK. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 29 June 1889
A FUNNY TEICK. At the last meeting of the Council of the Freetrade and Liberal Association of New South ? Wales, the president drew attention to an advertisement ap pearing in the morning papers under thej signature of four members of the council, reflecting on the action of the officers of the association in regard to the candidature of Mr. Dale. A lengthened discussion took place, in the course of which' Sir Henry Parkes ex pressed his astonishment that any per sons could be found ready to create divisions in the freetrade ranks at a time when all sbould be united and working their hardest for the common causo. A large number of members took part in the discussion, ' and ulti mately the following resolutions wore crrried, the only dissentients being Messrs. Hogarth, Walsh and Johnson, three of the four members whoso names appeared in the advertisement: — 1. ' That the position of this association in tho matter of the candidature of Mr. Dale was so clear that the:re was no necessit...
Parramatta Petty Sessions. FRIDAY, JUNE 21. Before Messrs. H. Byrnes and J. W. Withers, Js.P. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 29 June 1889
Parramatta Petty Sessions. Feed ay, June 21. Boforo Messrs. ft'. Byrnes and J. W. Withers, Js.P. A vouno girl, Annie Glover, was charged with unlawfully leaving her homo and wander ing about the streets, with no ostensible law ful occupation, and boing under 16 years of age. Constable Munro deposed that the de fendant had been keeping bad company for the past twelve months. Jane Glover deposed that defendant was aged 14 years and five months ; defendant had been away for over a fortnierht. and previous to that had frequently got up of a night and cleared out; defendant had always kept bad company and was boyond witness's control ; defendant had been conducting her self badly for two years. The chairman said it was an extraordinary thing that parents with only ono child should come to the magistrates for an order of the court. God only know only what thoy would do if they had moro children. He could not help thinking that tho child had not been properly cared for — there could not ha...
The Oiling of Rough Water by Sea Birds. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 29 June 1889
The Oiling of Rough Water by Sea Birds. The Army and Navy Journal prints a ettor from a naval officer, who suggests that the ancients who knew the value of oiling ; troubled waters, learned this method from observing the sea-birds. All the fish-eating birds, cage-pigeons, petrels, and tho liko, eject oil from the mouth when cantured. In the South Atlantic mid South Pacific the writer had witnessed sea-birds floating in spaces of comparatively ; quiet water when the sea around was rough, The unusual smoothness of the water was evidently due to considerable quantities of oil deposited by the birds. Notwith standing this testimony, however, and occasional letters from ship-captains bearing witness to ' their successful use of oil in tempestuous seas, there is a certain vagueness about tho matter which is unsatisfactory. Somo attempts ought, it seems to us, to be made to be made to elicit reliable testimony on the subject, of a more extended, definite, and comprehensive character. On th...
Current News. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 29 June 1889
Current News. The Granville Co-operative Society's first annual tea, concert and ball come off in tho School of Arts on Tuesday evening and the result was fairly encouraging to the promoters. An excellent tea was provided, the tables beiz/g presided over by Mesdames Bruce, Binns, Jagger, Terry, McAdams, Parhngton and Misses Roulston, Jagger, Osborne and Par tinston. After these ladies had succeeded in satisfying the appetites of their patrons, tables wore cleared away and a pleasing programme of music wus gone through. A pianoforte solo by Miss House yras executed in a manner that called forth well merited applause. A quar tette by four local amateurs was highly appre ciated and vociferously enoored. Mr. Bingham then gave a Scotch recitation, and those who understood Scotch sentiment seemed to enjoy it. Mr. Marcroft was also very successful in a vocal effort. Mr. Harry Richardson occupied the chair, and said that he had presided over many meetings at Granville, but at no meet ing di...
Phylloxera at Seven Hills. WHAT THE BOARDIS DOING. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 29 June 1889
Phylloxera at Seven Hills WHAT THE BOAEDIS DOING. Mit. Mahti-v, secretary of the Vine Diseases Board, writes as follows : — The membeis of the Vino Diseases Board have directed me to inform you, and, through you, tho vinegrowors of Now South Wales and tho goneral public, that they are at present actively engaged m trenching the diseased vino yards at Canidon and Seven Hills, each gang of men employed being under the supervision of a trustworthy, oxpori oncod, and practical danger. That there will .'be rid- possibility' of turning lip of roots in yoars to'come with' tlie in sect still alivo on them — as found in Geelong — may be assumed from the fact that as the labourers' trench' to the necessary depth they are followed by persons known as 'pickers up' who carefully remove every vostigo of root, and cast it into a fire, whore it is soon destroyed. None but experienced men are employed on the vineyards, and no ono is allowed to leave tho infected ground unless he discards his working...
Local Topics. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 29 June 1889
Local Topics Hebe is a curious story that we dug out of an old work on this colony, the other day — the work in question boing Surgeon Cunningham's 'Two Years inj New South Wales ' (1827) :— 'The road towards Parramatta is altogether composed of ascents and. descents ; while the land is generally very poor, and the sconery uniform, — so much so, indpod, that an Irish gentleman, well accustomed to the road, being thrown one morning from his horse while going to Parramatta to breakfast, and stunned by the fall, could not, for the life of him, make out on which hand he ought to turn ; nor was he con vinced he was proceeding back again to Sydney till he met Colonel Johnstone returning thence, ?whom he had met an hour before on his way to it ! ' 'We -wonder whether it was the uni formity of the scenery that created the mental confusion on the Irish gentleman's part, or tho fall from his horso or a too potent matutinal nip. A stiff 'morning' has often (both before and since 1827) had the ...
Progress of Cremation. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 29 June 1889
Progress of Cremation, Public attention has boen drawn to tho progress in public opinion amongst tho educated classes in favor of cremation of the dead, as an element in sanitary progress, by tho ceremonial cremation of the Marquis of Ely at tho Crematorium of the British Cremation society oi waning,- on wnicn , occasion the newly erected chapel on the Society's premises was used. Towards the erec tion of this eliapel.and the, adjoining mausoleum, considerable contributions have been made by the Duke of Bedford, and a further contribution of £500 has this week boen forwarded to Sir Henry Thompson by Sir Henry Nasmyth, the eminent engineer. In all, about £4,500 have been sent to Sir Henry Thompson (since ;the publication of his paper in the Nineteenth Century) by munificent donors to complete tho necessary erections at Woking of chapel, mausoleum, and suitable appurtenances to the Gorini Crematory of the Society, which was sometime since erected there, ana nas since oeeu m trequent o...
THE CASTLE HILL A. AND H. ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 29 June 1889
THE CASTLE HILL A. AND H ASSOCIATION. The regrottable apathy of those whose duty it is to support in healthy working order a Central Cumberland Agricultural Association has given to the Castle Hill district an excellent opportunity of performing a task emi nently calculated to promote tne in terests of the whole country side, if undertaken and carried out on broad, above-board, non-local lines. The op portunity, though a grand one for the Castle Hill district, is not without its responsibilities : but if these be only faithfully recognised, things aro bound to go well, especially asthat district is in many ways very favourably situ ated for successfully carrying out the work in question. Tho chief point in its disfavour is that it is not sufficiently central; but that is a fault which may be overcomo by the Associa tion exercising care and liberality in the matter of preparing its prize-schedule and by its arranging for all judging being performed by non-local and thoroughly compete...
Persian Insect Powder. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 29 June 1889
Persian Insect Powder. A Eussian journal devoted to the in dustrial interests of the Caucasus de scribes the cultivation of tho pyrothrum plant in the Caucasus. The flowers of the pyrethrum (Pyrethrmn roseum) are used for making the powder, which is sold under various names — ' insect to insects, ' ' &o. In Europe these flowers are only found in Dulmatia, but those are white, and not rose-violot, liko thoso of the Caucasus. Tho Dalmatian pyro thrum is_ greatly appreciated, and when its crop is scarce tho Caucasian flowers are eagerly sought for, and their pric increases by from 200 to 300 por cent. ; this was the caso in 1887 and 1888. Prices, whicn had varied between threo and seven roubles for the provious ton years, reached all at once, in 1887, 15 and 16 roubles at Tiflis. Formerly a certain quantity of pyrethrum in pow der was exported from the Caucasus. but Europeans were not satisfied with receiving this dolicate article in this form, because it was discovered to bo m...

Central Cumberland Election. Return of Mr. Dale. FREETRADE TRIUMPHANT. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 29 June 1889
Central Cumberland Elec tion. Return of Mr. Dale. FEEETEADE TEIUMPHANT. As we predicted in various articles on the bye-election concluded last Sat urday, the result was a, decided victory for Freetrade, notwithstanding that their position was jeopardised by two Freetraders going to tho poll against one Protectionist. Tho Freetraders had everything to contend agamsc. xn tue first place, there was a division among three important sections of tho party over tho candidates. In somo places Mr. Dale's candidature was in disfavour, and Messrs. Brodie and Taylor found sym pathisers in various parts of the constit uency. Over this rock tho party split. A very strong section went for Mr. Dale, several stood up for Mr. Taylor, and Mr. Brodie was not without a friend at court. Disagrceablo scenes took placo in the local association, and tho nomination proceedings wore humilia ting to Freetraders, the Freetrade can didates being anything but amiable to each other. Then ensued a fierce news paper...

The Oldest Free Public Library. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 29 June 1889
The Oldest Free Public Library. Bristol and Manchester are rival claimants of tliis honor, the former boasting of the library founded by Eobert Eedwood in 1615, and the latter of Humphrey Chetham's library, estab lished in 1653. London, however, had a free public library nearly two hundred vears before the Bristol librarv was founded. We learn from the very in teresting paper lately read Mr. Charles Welch, the corporation librarian, at a meeting of the Library Association, that there was a free pnblic library in London, founded by the famous Eichard Whittingtonand William Bury, certainly as early as 1425. This library suffered from an illustrious book thief, as, ac cording to Stow, the Protector Somerset borrowed the books, probably in 1559, and forgot to return them.

THE AMD ERUITGHOWERS' ADVOCATE. SATURDAY. JUNE 22. THE LATE BYE-ELECTION. 'We honestly believe that the crodit of the recont Freetrado victory is pri marily due to tho Cumberland Akgtjs for the urgent persistency wherewith it whipped up the disorganised Freetrade ranks, and insisted upon the moral ob ligation under which every loyal Free trader rested to redeem the 'implied pledge' which just after the last genoral olection had been inconsider ately mado to Mr. Daie. Wo were as sonsiblo as any of those who objected to it of tho folly of tho making of that pledge, but wo felt how improper it would be for the adherents to an hon ourable causo to ropudiato it — henco our action, which (though in some profos sodlj' Freetrade quarters it gave eon siderablo offence) undoubtedly had tho effect of beating up tho majority which saved tho vacant scat from becoming the prey of the party of restriction.
