Pig-Proof Fence. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 27 August 1886
Plg«Proof Pence. An easily-erected and efficient pig-proof fence is a desideratum many of our settlers will like to hear of. We have it on the authority of ' Bruni,',' that well known contributor to the Australasian upon agricultural and live stock matters, that such a fence can be made out of barbed wire. He writes The only pig proof wire fence I have met with in my travels is on Mr. John Reid's estate, Elderslie, New Zealund. It consists of seven barbed wires placed in the following order — the lowest were Gin. from the ground, and all the others Sin apart. The distance between the posts is 7ft., but Mr. Reid recommends that the distance should be 6ft apart. The wire used was the ordinary 4-barbed American galvan ised wire. Of thiB fence Mr. Reid says : ' It has been found thoroughly secure ; not an animal has ever got through it.' Mr. Sala lately advertised for a lady secretary, age not under 30, a governess preferred, who must write a legible hand and have a knowledge of French-...

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 27 August 1886
TO WEI on IT ItlAY COftCEItftT. The announcement in another column to the effect that 10,000 tins of. con densed Swiss milk, which arrived per steamship Austral the other day, and ordered to be destroyed as being unfit for human consumption, points to three things that are well worthy of consideration. The first of these is the unwelcome fact that in a country more than ordinarily blessed with the means of dairying to an unlimited extent — certainly far and away beyond the necessity of the country — it his 1 been found a profitable transaction to import condensed milk from a foreign source into it for the consumption of the inhabitants ; and, taking it that this , one item of 10,000 tins is merely one shipment out of thousands, the deriv able profit from dairying in these dis tricts is a matter of certainty, if intelli gently and energetically carried out, and the industry well worthy of the consideration of our agriculturists and pastoralists, and one that has been seriously neglec...

Bngot was first missed it will bo remembered that a rowurd of £20 was offered for anyone discovering his whereabouts. Aftor several days had elapsed, and it seemed certain that a fatality had hap pened to the unfortunato gentleman, tho reward was increased to £100, and shortly afterwards the body was found. The friends who guaranteed the largo amount did so in the desire to encourage the soarrh- par tics amongst whom were many persons who devoted thoir own time and that of their employers and their horses for days in the pursuit. Young men from the market stripped themselves and dived iuto the waterholes, and with many others took part in the miry search' of tho bed of the Torrens. Eventually, one of tlio warders at the Stockade stepped six feet out of the beaten track of his path of vigilance at the Stockade, and looking ovor the edge of the quarries saw Mr. Bagot's boots....

Suicides.— The Melbourne correspondent of the Herald' saydm^Thero appears to be an epidemio of suicide among women just beam ing, for within' the last thre-) days three women have gnne to their deaths by violenoe. One of them has flung herself from a bridge and fractured her spine ; another has confronted a railway train, nnd got a good deal the worse of the encounter ; a third has, drowned herself wittingly and a tourth has taken laudanum in quantities inconsistent with the continuance of existence. The young woman who drowned herself left her baby on the beach sewed up in a shawl, and that baby must have needed but little atmospherio air for the purpose of respiration to survive that sewing op. It may he mentioned that as soon as it was known there was a baby without a mothfr, quite a crowd of childless women went to the police and begged, some of them quite pitcously, to be allowed to have that baby. The odd thing is they should all want ihis baby, for there is no difficulty at a...

OUR JOCKEY CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 3 September 1886
OUR JOCKKY CLUB. There can be little, if any, doubt that one of the first duties of a citizen is to, as much' as in him lies, advance the material welfare of- the place wherein he resides. And when we speak of the place wherein he resides, we desire it to be understood that any. small boundary tsuuti u» wuuiu uc ueuueu uy auuu^rcgtttiiuu of streets, or a village, is not intended to be conveyed, but rather the good that must accrue to himself as representing one of the component parts of a village, town, city, or district.' And, perhaps, one of the best ways now-a-days to effect this end is by liberally subscribing to whatever public movements for the general welfare may be submitted to us. To this end we desire to-direct attention to the duty — rwe cannot find any other phrase sufficiently expressive — of each and every resideut in this town and district tn support in a liberal manner such an institution as our local Jockey Club. And there ore several irrefragable reasons for this, ...
