A Valuable Discovery. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 24 May 1898

A Valuable Discovery. (Extiact from a Sydney paper.) Scientists tell us that in this nineteenth cen tury uf our8j»buut the greatest strides made in the discovery world have been in niedicino.

Football. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 24 May 1898

Football. [By Rue by.] Maclean v. liarwood met at Harwood on Saturday, the former winning by 10 to 3. Maclean had 13 men in tho first half and 12 in the second ; Harwood had 14 men all the time. I venture to say that play of a more unin teresting cnaracter nas seldom been seen, and if this is the class of play we are going to have, tho game can never and will uever become popular on the Clarence JRiver. Tho idea had got abroad that there was such a thing as off-side in Rugby, but judging by the decisions given on Saturday, this idea is quite wrong. The rnle appears to 'be play on the ball wherever you happen to be.' It was also thought that tho penalty for lying on tho ball in a scrummage and hanging on when collared was a freo kick, but this rule also Bonns to have fallen into disuso, and in place of open play we aro now to have one con tinual round of scrummages. Nothing but scrum, and scrum and scrum and scrum again ! Giurious fun for the players and grand entertain r-.ent for th...

Harbor Works. Within the past week or two it has been re ported that the Harbors and Eivors Department contemplate closing tho quarry at Angowrio and opening a new ono at Woodford Island, near Maclean. ? Tho stone at Angowrio is covered to a great depth with useless matorial, which has to be removed to reach tho hard stone.

All theso circumstances tond to increase the cost of stouo put out from Angowrio quarry. On tho othor haud, it is said that tho stone at Angowrio is harder than that at Wood ford Island, although tho lattor is considered to be good enough, and may bo found to be better at a depth.

How to Help the Local Paper [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 24 May 1898

How to Help the Local Paper You can aid your newspaper greatly by giving the local office your general printing ; if you do not feel able to run an advertisement, surely you can afford to givo the newspaper your cards, dodgers, billheads, envelopes, and all business printing to execute. The nowspaper man needs it, and it helps him to pay his printer tor setting up the thousand and one free notices he gives you and your town ; but don't give it to the travelling canvasser who can give you no such return, and is spending neither time, money, nor brains in helping you to build up your district. Tae tirao may come when a newspaper may live simply upon tho revenue derived from subscriptions and advertisements, but no ordinary newspaper in any ordinary town can exist without auxiliary support derived from general printing. Therefore, if you want a good newspaper — one that will still help your town and district — give all your printing to the G.R. Advocate, the only paper published in the...
