Mr. E. J. Perry's Poulterers' and Provision Establishment. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 26 October 1895

Dir. E. J. Ferry's Poulterers' and Provision Establishment. It came as a boom, etc., one day in now far off years — E. J. Perry's shop for poultry, ham, bacon, and general provisions of a tasteful And dainty character. Bival establishments have come into being since, but rivals may come and rivals may go, While the big business in the little shop near the Town Hall (like that brook of some body's) goes on for ever. In Hams and bacons, cooked meats, tinned ditto, trotters, tongues, sausages, relishes, and all other small goods — in poultry (live or dead), cheese, and butter — in pickles, preserves, and ' provisions ' generally, Perry's became from the start recognised as tbe emporium ; and it keeps its lead. To tbe live poultry and pigeon department has lately been added a canary section, in which ' fanciers ' may operate with every expectation of getting as much satis faction as the general customer ex periences when shopping at Peny's.

Local Tradesfolk. MR. H. R. BABBY. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 26 October 1895

Local Tradesfolk. MB. H. B. BABRY. Since Fuller's buildings arose at the comer (opposite St. John's Church), the fashionable boot-shop of the town has had a place there. Under Mr. H. B. Barry, the old-new establishment more than keeps up its reputation. Mr. Barry knows bow to combine usefulness with beauty, practical service with taste, good wear-and-tear abilities with elegance and grace. His windows exhibit attractive footgear (chiefly for t^ie ' attractive sex ana tueir' attractive youngsters) attractively set out. On the other hand the doorways show the ' plain blunt man ' from way-back, just tbe good old hob-nail bluchers, without which (in his opinion) the world would be on the down made. A screen full of oozy slippers speaks of the other extreme — sybaritic luxury and ' the divine art of taking-it-easy.' InBide, the shelves are laden with British, Continental and Colonial goods in full view, while from boxes above, and drawers below, a reserve may be drawn on as required. Her...

CASTLE HILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 26 October 1895

CASTLE HILL. Some of the orchardists here are looking forward hopefully to tbe coming season. Mr. Greenwood, Mr. Rogers, and others report very favourably as to early apricots, but think that plums, the later kinds of apricots, and other , fruits will be a light crop. In most cases there is a fair show of orange blossom for the next crop. Mr. Purser's trait trees — of various kinds—are looking wonderfully, well. His systems of pruning seem to be possessed of many advantages, and might, with benefit, be more generally adopted. He has a large show of plums, and his persimmons look wonder fully well aud promising. Last year he obtained no less than 27 gin cases of pears — the Chinese stewing varietv — from one tree, ahd this year be calculates that he will gather at least 30 cases from the some tree. Several large snakes have been destroyed in this locality by residents. Mr. Banks killed a big black snake on Monday morning ; and Mr. Beard, Mr. Rogers, and Sir. Greenwood have each slain...

Much indignation is locally expressed with regard to the remarks that ap peared in a recent issue of your Parra matta contemporary about tbe Bev. Mr. Marshall, the Presbyterian minister at Hornsby. The strictures in question are believed to have been unfounded and uncalled for, and the explanation made by tbe erring journal, last week, is considered ungracious, insufficient, and altogether unsatisfactory.

Railway Arrangements. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 26 October 1895

Railway Arrangements. An agitation has lately been on foot to obtain an alteration in the departure of the train now leaving Sydney for this station at 5.22 p.m. It is thought desirable that this train should be timed to start from Sydney at 5.80 p.m., and, by running through without the numer ous stoppages which at present delay 1 it so greatly, should reach its destina tion earlier than it now does. The change, it is felt, would be a conveni ence to the business men of the district.

The Public School. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 26 October 1895

The Public School. Active preparations are in hand for the concert to be held in the Town Hall ! in about three weeks time. The beauti ful cantata, abounding in lovely choruses, entitled ' The Queen of the Seasons,' by W. H. Boddie, is to be rendered by the children, and there will also be a floral march and a display of dumb-cell exercises by the girls, so that the entertainment should be a very attractive one. The whole will be under the direction of Mr. Sellars, the principal, and Mr. Reid, pupil teacher, will be the accompanist on the piano forte. The proceeds will be applied to the purchase of prize-books for success ful pupils, and with the sums sub scribed, Mr. Sellars hopes to raise up wards of £10 for this purpose. It has been usual to give two concerts in each year — the first one being much earlier than the one now in preparation. But the delay has arisen owing to the cause of sickness in the district, and the consequent low rate, of attendance at the School. At the prese...

THORNLEIGH. The Pomona Poultry Yards. Novices in {he business of poultry keeping should have a look at Mr. Board's wonderfully complete arrange ments at the Pomona' poultry yards, which have before been described in our columns. A curious, feature is Mr. Board's practice of taMng the chicks from the hen that hatched them, and distributing them amongst four pullets that have become trained nurses. Each of these four may be seen at the head ot a colossal lamuy, recalling to one s ' adnd Sogham Young's statement that every child he, met called him ' Pa,' and he took 'it for granted that the claim -was . correct.

By one striking event, notable achieve ment, or daring deed they have stormed the Temple of Fame, astonishing rivals friends.

Formerly he oonfined himself to artistio work ; but noently he bunt on the world with that ouriously inteteeting work * Trilby/ which caused some English critioe to hail him as a new Thackeray, and created a perfect furore in America, where 'Trilby' became a national erase.
