Local Topics. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 6 July 1889
Local Topics. It would appear that from what our Rook wood correspondent tolls us (vido paragraph in (mother column) that tho labours of the em/ihi/eil ' unemployed ' are in Homo [cases expended most improvidcntly. Tho functionary (whoever, ho may bo) who is responsible for neglecting the urgently needed repair of an unsiifo until ruii/crond, while setting a crowd of parties to work on an almost unfrequented track wants a gentle reminder from his superior officers. Wo believe thut the Blue Ribbon Gospel Army (I'airanmttu minion, is doing very good work; still we feel bound to point out that £Gl appears to be an abnormally large pro portion of tho total receipts (£130 Si) for the year ending f5th of May] last to have been eaton up by tho two items, 'salaries' .(£54 10s) and ' travelling expenses ' (£6 10s).

Important Dispatch on Phylloxera. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 6 July 1889
Important Dispatch on Phylloxera. An interesting dispatch on phylloxera has been received by his Excellency Lord Carrington from the Secretary of State for the Colonies. It encloses a paper on the subject of the destruction of the phylloxera by Mr. Louys, a vine yard proprietor in the Medoc district, of Paris. He says that of all the insecti cides employed so far in the destruction of phylloxera the sulphur of carbon is the one which has proved tho most effioacious. But the sulphur of carbon, being of a blind, and ungovernablo strength, kills at the same time by its contact the phylloxera and the vino. It is necessary to obtain assimilation and dissolution to moderate its force of action and suppress the waste which is produced by evaporation from contact . with air. M. Louys says he has at tained this result by a mixture of soap of oleate of potash and water with the sulphur of cai'bon, and he has called this new composition 'sulfo- potassium.' Its composition is as follows : — Thr...
Trade Restriction; Past and Present: Its Errors and its Failures. PART I. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 6 July 1889
Trade Restriction ; Past and Pre sent : Its Errors and its Failures. i | By Edvabd Pulsfohd. v 1JA11T I. The world's progress during tko last fow centuries lias in no department of lifo been more marked or productive of: moro important results than in tho uttitudo of political powers towards tlio trading community. It is impossible now to fully estimate the extroardinary difficulties and penalties under which ,,;,i- ?:?:!'.:. :ries ago, the trade and coni aiot ??.:;? ?-:' i.- country were carried on. An i'.'svx-ai.i.f, ) of suspicion and danger ourrounded the trader and the mer chant. The central authority imposed taxes, and the local authorities im posed taxes. In England the town and city corporations imposed all kinds of dues, tolls and rates. These one after another were abolished as the truth, gradually dawned on the people that it was a suicidal policy to put bur dens on tradd. Not only did the idea exist that trade could be taxed to any extent, but the policy of restriction —...

FREETRADERS AND ORGANISATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 6 July 1889
FREETRADER AND ORGAN ISATION. A political crisis looms in tho near future. Should Mr. Schey chance to be returned for Eedfem as the late Mr. Sutherland's successor, a defeat of the Government may bo brought aboiit at any moment — with, in all probability, a general election as its immediate re sult. Henca the urgent necessity for the Freetraders of Central Cumberland to organise in a proper and practical manner, lest peradventure a second 'split in their camp ' shall betray them to their foes. Even if a serious politi cal crisis wore not imminent, there would be none the less necessity for the Freetraders of Central Cumberland to set abotit the work of organising their ranks in downright earnest. 'Though occasionally a 'spurt' may bo made successfully with a Party just 'taken off the grass,' in perfectly untrained con dition, it is 'tho discipline of the stable ' that tells in the long run. We do not say that Mr. Pale's recent victory deserves to be classed as a mere flash in the pa...

The American Girl's Opinion of her Countrymen. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 6 July 1889
The American Girl's Opinion of her Countrymen. A TYrE-writor girl thus expresses her self in the Iiulicmopolis Journal: — 'I get sick and tired of men and their ways- They aio messey; thoy sling paper all ovor the offico, and loll about on tho desks and chairs in such undigni fiod attitudos. They smoke and qhew. We have fourteen drummers who come into our offico, and only one of tho fourteon lias over haft tho courtesy to ask me if cigar-smoke is offonsive to mo. Then they aro silly : they talk such nonsense as 1G -year-old girls woman t bo guilty of. It is all about neckties, now hats, ballets, good dinners, and 'o on. If you think man is tho superior animal, you just spend some time in a busines office with assorted sizes of him and you will soe. I am beginning to boliave that a trashy dimo novol is bettor society than tho averago man, and equally improving.'

Export of Fruit to England. Adelaide, Tuesday. — A deputation from the South Australian Agricultural Bureau waited on the Commissioner of Crown Lands (Mr. T. Burgoyne) to-day to ursre that the Government should co operate with the other colonies in in ducing an expert fruit packer to visit Australia for tho purpose of promoting the export trade in fruit with England. Mr. Burgoyne said that ho recognised tho importance of the fruit-growing in dustry to tho colony, and there was no doubt that tho Government would ac cede to the wish of the bureau.
Electric Lighting in London. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 6 July 1889
Electric Lighting in London. Major Marindin's report on Electric Lighting in London is a document which will receive a good deal of critic ism. There is at any rate one satisfac tory feature about it. It brina's electric lighting well within the range of practical domestic politics. With the division of London into electric-lighting areas, and concessions for the exclusive supply of these areas granted to a limited number of companies, it need not be very long before everybody who wants it can have his electric supply laid on as easily as his gas and water. But the really curious feature of the re port is that Mayor Mariudin is obliged to declare against Freetrade in elec tricity. We may be sure that the Board of Trade inspector would not be willing to create now monopolies if it could bo avoided. But the simplo truth is that for great public works of this kind, un less the State or the municipality can undertake them, something in the nature of a monopoly must be created or they wo...

THE ANNUAL MEETING was immediately held, Mr. Cyrus Edgar Fuller, one of the vice-presidents, pre siding, and there were also present Messrs. J. W. Foster (vice-president), F. H. G.

Cox, D. Jay, C. J. Mooro, J. Harrison and others. Tho minutes of the last annual and spocial general meetings having been confirmed, a letter was read from the president, Mr. E. II. Acres, regretting his inability to be present, and stating that, although he had not had an op nortunitv of thankinc the members for his election, ho was deeply conscious of the honour. He \irged tho matter of obtaining a show ground on the atten tion of the members. The groat diffi culty was the road leading to it.

The Evolution of Familiar Things. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 6 July 1889
The Evolution of Familiar Things We know of no study more interest ing or more proyocative of thought than the evolution of the familiar things about us. Thousands of inventions have gone into the presses that print our daily papers. H we go into such an establishment as that of E. Hoe & Co. we can see the various steps that invention has taken in the evolution o the printing machine. The piano that stands in your parlour has come from ' David's harp of solemn sound. ' It is the old harp of Judea, boxed and supplied with artificial fingers to twang its strings. Trace the evolution of heating appliances for fifty years and you will find the products of thousands of minds,, and. you. will see where one invention joins on to and suplements another, to be in turn helped out of the inventor, and in most cases every result is the product of an evolutionary pro cess, rather than the instantaneous crea tion of inspired genius. The literature of a hundred years ago shows that our anc...
Dancing with the United Kingdom. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 6 July 1889
Dancing with the United Kingdom. Dr. Shark is a gentleman who bo liovos in the rational treatment of patients in his private lunatic asylum. Ho gives them picnics in summer, and balls in winter, and -plenty, of anruse mont all tho year round. Taking one consideration with another I should imagine that lunacy, undor Iheso con ditions, is rathor a pleasant thing. I always look forward to the dancos ho gives, for af tor considerable oxj-erienoo I havo como to tho conclusion that idiotic partnors are rather loss idiotic than the commonplace misses ono meets with at ordinary balls. Sho was sitting in a corner of tho ballroom toying with a fan — a largo and massivo woman whom one would no moro havo suspected of being insane than of being consumptive. 1 asked tho doctor to introduce mo, for I admire fiuo women. Ho did so, and I sat down bosido hor. We spoko about tho weather, as now aquaintances will. Sho was perfectly rational on that point, at any rate. She thought it was appalling. I me...
No title [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 6 July 1889
Mr. Foster moved and Mr. Gibb seconded the adoption of the roport. Mr. J. C. Hunt, speaking to the re port, stated that, although' he was pleased with the report and the success which had attended their efforts during the^past year, he felt there were one or two matters in connection with the work of the past year which were open to criticism and should be dealt with. In a young association, he thought their chief source of income should be the right of ontrance ; but they had found one or two items larger. To those who did not know he would explain why the gates were sold. At one meeting oi trie council it was passed that the gates be sold without reserve, but at the next meeting that motion was rescinded, and a resolution moved that the gates be sold without reserve. . Mr. Vicepre sident Fuller (who ' was iu the chair) ruled tho resolution out of order, and when he (Mr. Hunt) moved that the chairman's ' ruling be dissented from, it wa? only negatived r-n +.li a nnRtinir vnto of' t...
