A Notable Career. The body of Kate Terry has heen laid in the grave. She died in New York on Friday, March 16, ending a career remarkable in many ways. She was an English barmaid in her youth, but she died worth many millions. When she first appeared in this country it waB as the wife of Jim Varley, an English burglar, better known as ' Edward Blacksmith.' They opened a saloon in Hous ton-Btreet, near Boadway, and it soon became a reBorfc for the political heelers of the district. Tbat was when Tweed was all powerful. Varley was noted as a slugger, and was a ready man with a pistol, but he managed to keep out of gaol until Tweed's downfall. Then he killed a man and was sent to prisen for twenty years. His wife immediately secured a divorce, sold out the saloon and went abroad. In Paris she met Juan Terry, a young Cuban planter. She was still pretty and fascinating.

The Record Polygamist. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 2 June 1894

The Record Polygamist. James Wellington Brown, a polygamist with the phenomenal record of twenty-six wiveB in the State of Michigan alone, and with other wives being heard from at times in other parts of the United States, has again come into public notice through the inquiries of two of his hitherto unreported Mesdames Brown. The faculty of jur. .Drown m aqquiung wives is no greater than his knack at disposing of them. The most attractive women to Mr. Brown appear to be milliners and dressmakers. Four of the Mesdames Brown were residents of Detroit, and two of them lived in the same ward. Brown's operations were so extensive that he did Dot have time or money to bother with divorces. It was shown at the trial that within six years he had married twenty-Bix women in Michigan. Many of those were present at tho trial, and the develop ments were a nine dayB* sensation. He received a sentence of six years in Jackson prison. He was released from prison some weeks ago. Nothing was heard f...

LAGUNA. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 2 June 1894

LAGUNA. During the whole of last week this village was   en fete on account of preparations for a cricket match and ball, which took place on Saturday. The weather was propitious. The game was played between the St. Albans C. C. and the Laguna C. C.;   it was a very interesting one, and resulted in a win for St. Albans by seven wickets. A painful accident happened to Mrs. Brown, of , the Laguna Hotel, who had the misfortune to break her leg during the afternoon. Much sympathy was expressed for her as she is an old and highly re spected resident.   The ball was held at Fernance's restaurant, formerly known as the Traveller's Rest Inn. There were not many ladies present, but the gentlemen made up for their deficiency. Mr. Ned Bowlack acted as M.C., and Billy Crumpley, encouraged by his success at the Yango entertainments, performed on the violin, but he did not play up to expectations,   having cut his finger in the early part of the...

The Pitcairn Islanders. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 9 June 1894

The Pitcairn Islanders. Tho word Utopia has been in the mouths of many optimistic adventurers of late. The place has) been difioovered— by report — in many quarters of the globe. The most recent report locates the Happy Valley in Pitcairn Island. In January laat, as the snap iiirroi, or tne uonaia uurrie line, was passing to windward of the island, she was intercepted by two boats. The spokesman of the occupants of the boats, ono YoHng, requested permission to board, and asked the captain to transmit for them a few letters to Europe. The boats were loaded with island produce, for which tho captain traded. But the most striking feature of the ineideHt ia the favourable impression made by the islanders upon their temporary entertainers. Their physique is spoken of as admirable. Their attire was of a neat European cut. Perfeot harmony appeared te prevail amongst them and that avarice was foreign to their nature ia held to be proven by their op«n-handed methods of barter. They expressed...

The Belgian Poisoning Mysteries. On April 18 a lady named Madame Joniaux, occupying a high position in Antwerp society, waa arrested and charged with being concerned in three mysterious murders which far several years past have formed a subject of discussion in Belgium. The three persons whose deaths gave rise to the present criminal proceedings were (1) Mdlle. Lfionie Albay, sister of Madame Joniaux; (2) M. Jacques Vanden Kerckhoven, maternal uncle of M. Jonianx. and (3) M. Alfred Albay, brother of Madame | Jonianx. All three died in the house of the prisoner. The death of the first-named, which took place a considerable time ago, excited no suspicion, [ nor, indeed, did that of M. Vanden Kerckhoven, who was one of the largest manufacturers of Ghent, ani J who died rather more than a yeai ago while on a visit te the house of M. and Madame Joniaux. It was the sudden and mysterious decease towards the beginning of March of M. Alfred Ablay, the brother of the prisoner, which first aro...

TAREE. Since my last there has been no prominent stir in every-day^ife. and nothing worthy of notice has occurred to break the monotony that was always characteristic of this locality ; yet, notwithstanding the general depression that disastrous floods have brought, and even other obstacles, most have made olibuuuuh euuBAvuurs, ana Bucceeaed admirably in keeping their heads above water. To add to adversity, too, what little the floods left in the line of maizo is scarcely worth sending to market, and prices are not nearly so brilliant as they were in former years. Is this the result of protection ? Our esteemed townsman Mr. DaviB, we are given to understand, is shortly about to leave the district. His loss will be severely felt, especially during show time, when he always had a large share in promoting sports, and thus greatly assisting in their successful termination. Beach washing for gold has almost been aban doned, owing to the gold being so fine that the best patent gold-saving...

Several residents and families are prostrated with the epidemic. district uouncil. — a meeting was held last Friday at the Courthouse, Gresford. It was the roughest on record. Abuse and not buBinesB seems to be the motto of some of the councillors. Councillor Grey evidently has an uphill fight with his motion for contract work. Coun cillor H. H.
