Letting the Sun Soak In. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News and South Coast Districts Advertiser — 25 November 1893
Letting the Su& Soak In. I am just standing here to let the sun soak into me a bit.' It was abnut two o'clock in tlie after noon iu London. For two weeks or more the weather had been rainy and cold. Nut a glimpBO of the sun by day or a star by night. Just duluess, dampness, and chilliness everywhere. People were feol ing cross as hungry dogs. Tt was a time for suicide and rheumatism, and there was plenty -of both. Yet Heaven pitied us at length, and at noon of the fifteenth day the clouds were swept away like dust by a new broom, and the sun came out warm and bright. How we all bleuBcd him, and tried to lift our selves up to meet him half way. You can fancy it. Then it was that I asked (he young clerk what he was doing out on the. pavement in business hours, and he aijswerod in the words which be^in this article. Small blame to him, for what is business to a baptism of sunshine ? Why nothing, to be sure. Now, if you will be good enough to read what Mr. UodgBon says, I'll tel...
Only an Aero. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News and South Coast Districts Advertiser — 25 November 1893
Only an Acre About three years ago an nllotnient of land in a central part of Grafton was fenced in lay tin; owners and lot on a clearing lease — the clearing conT sisting of the removal of. a number of stumps and a vast accumulation of rub bish, bottles, etc., which nia.de the place a nuisance to the neighlio.ihood. The Hero of land was planted with potatoes Inst year, and gave a clear return of £40 ; a second crop of late maize was not so successful, having been damaged by a gale of wind. Potatoes were again planted this year, and although not quite so heavy as last year, yet the balance of tive tons was shipped by steamer and the laud under maize fully a fortnight earlier than last year. There are a considerable number of similar portions of land iu the. town untiiled year after year from which equally as good and better returns could be obtained, and the district made all the richer. We need hardly add that the lessee of the small plot of land is Mr. T. Dellow. — ' Grafton Argus...
A Worthy Example. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News and South Coast Districts Advertiser — 2 December 1893
A Worthy Example. The life history of David Wilson, tlm Victorian . Dairy Commissioner to Europe, is worthy a pl.ica in Smile's 'JSelf Help.' A nntivn of Glasgow, Mr. Wilson ? commenced life in tliit city as a moss™»--r-lioy at half a crown a w«ek. When quito a young man he canm to Australia forty years rigo, and after roughing it took up some land in Victoria at £1 an acre. By dint of ttrady work he soon turned this into a first-class dairy farm, fitted up with nil the best labour saving appliances that engineering could devise. On reading of tho Di! .Laval separator, which was exhibited for tlio first time at the Killiurn .Show in 1879, lie cabled an order for one. -His^'-was thn first separator landed in Australia, and he them turned his dairy into a' dairy factory. For a time his separator was looked upon liy his neighbours as a ' crazo,' but as he continued to prosper the colonists wisely followed his example, and now there are thousands of sep arators in the colony and 500 dai...
The Contingent Vote. TO THE EDITOR OF THIS SHOALHAVEN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News and South Coast Districts Advertiser — 2 December 1893
Tie Contingent Tote. TO *HE EDITOR OF TltB KHOAUfAVEX KBWS. Sir, — The adoption of the system of contingent voting, which has proved eo KiiccesBful in .QuLensliuid ami elsewhere, will do .much to ensure the retention ?if political power in the haii'lo of tho . majority, which forms the only sound hasis of political freedom and progress. The Premier has expressed an opinion that something of I lie kind \b necessary to prevent tho possibilhy of the Li'tislii tiye AssemMy ivpiesoiHing only a small minority of the electors, n |n-Rsibiiity which hns Iiulmi crenti-ri hv the nstal.l sh incntof single «lectorares and tlienholitiwii of the £40 deposit.

It is pleasing to note that steps are again * .being taken to establish an Early-closing Association in Nowra. It is certainly time that some proper consideration was paid to those persons who rise early in the morning and work till late at night. Many in fact work all hours, in numerous instances for small remuneration. In the growing town of Nowra, it is correct to say, there are many young persons who do not have sufficient time away from the dy.sk 'or counter, and, recognising this fact, the founders of the local Half-Holiday Association a few years ago had in view iiUo the early closing of stores and offices - throughout the week. The employers sympathised with the movement, but all attempts to relieve the employees beyond tho Wednesday half -holiday signally failed. The weekly half-holiday might readily ba improved, with increased advan . tage in point of health, to both the em Jlloyeos and their masters. This, however, rcats entirely with themselves. Whilst it ? ;* 'is a gcoc...

THE TURF. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News and South Coast Districts Advertiser — 2 December 1893
THE TURF. A goodly number of nags aro now in training for the high-jumping and hunting contests at local shows to be held in February. Some sensational high-jumping, is promised from one quarter. The Waxlight mare Iseult (7) owned by Ned Scrivener, won the Kensington Handicap last Wednesday, and also ran third in the 14.1 handicap, carrying; 7st 121b., at tho same meeting. Eurydiea (7.10) also was. unsuccessful in the 14 British Lion (by Leolinus from Sprit sail), one of the finest horses ever seen in this part of the country, is now at the service of Dlawarra breeders.

Town Talk. [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven News and South Coast Districts Advertiser — 2 December 1893
Town Talk FBv Junius.1 Just a few notes after returning from a health-recruiting trip. I believe the Mayor of Nowra, hearing the bagpipes playing in town one day last week, was seen running quite hastily up Junction-street towards the post-office. A friend, with whom he stopped a moment, could not refrain from remarking upon tho fascination which the pipes naturally had for the Mayor, but the hitter hastened on, with the remark that 'he thought his horse was around the corner and it would be frichtened by th' moosic.' His friend ivviit up lo luu uuruer aicerwaras, ana, as ho expected, found Hit; Worship standing on the kerbstone with his arms folded, an attentive auditor to tho Scottish party. The decision of a meeting of residents to have Gilbert and Sullivan's evergreen opera -played in Nowra is good news. 'Pinafore' should be a success here, and tliere is unquestionably some good talent in the district that could make it so. 'Tis to be hoped the necessary arrange ments will be en...
