Great Land Sale This Afternoon. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 4 October 1884
Great Land Sale This Afternoon. It has been well remarked that land, is not a commodity that can be increased. You cannot import it ; there is a certain quantity, and no more. Of course, there is yet an abundance of land in Australia, but it is mostly far away, in places where access is difficult, and where there is no population. .. Land in those parts is of course cheap, because there is little or no acmana tor it. uut near oyaney, the great metropolis of this colony, with its rapidly in- j creasing population, daily spreading into the suburbs, land must improve in value. In this, as in other speculations and investments, attention should be oaid to a few important facts. In buying land these facts are nearness to the city, facility of access, gooi drainage, and pleasant views. Planthurst— situate' on the main road to Tom TJgly's Point — possesses all these advantages in a remarkable degree. The Illawarra Railway, to be oponsd in a few. days, lpads directly to it. Messrs., Watkin ...
Laughter. Court Circular. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 4 October 1884
;'-? Laughter. ; Encourage your child to be merry, and lo laugh aloud, A good hearty laugh expands his chest, and 'makes his blood bound merily along. Commend me to a good laugh — not to a little sniggering laugh — but to one that will resound through the- house. It will not only do your child good, lint will be a benefit to all who hear, and be an important means of driving the blue-devils away from a dwelling. Merriment is very catching, and spreads in a remarkable manner, few being'able to resist I the contagion i A hearty laugh is delightful harmony, indeed it is the best of all music 1 A ! merryllaughing child makes a cheerful counte nance, and a cheerful countenance ii the finest cosmetic and beautifier in the world ; more-. 0 ver, ' a cheerful conntcnance doeth good like a medicine,' and is decidedly the pleasantest of all medicines, causing neither wry faces, nor qualms in the administration thereof. There is' great philosophy in a laugh. A laugh ' 1 sets the digestion to wo...

A comic song by Mr.' George Leeder- concluded the concert. , There was a good attendance arid after the concert the company thoroughly enjoyed a few hour's dan cing. The success of the concert was due to. the exertions of Mrs. Osborie, who was ably assisted by the ladies above mentioned.

Local Progress. A blacksmith's shop, a public house, and a churoh are tho customary order of progression in an Australian settlement. The peoplo of Tempe Park have, however, reversed and many people will think improved upon the usual order of things and commenced with a church, a very neat structure, erected by Messrs. Fall ick and Waring, of Tempe J.'ark and Newtown, for the Wesleyan body, from designs by Mr. Evans, architect, of the Haymarkct, Sydney.

A Pure Diamond. A somewhat pretty and oven romantic' resi dence is the one known as Erskinvill* House, ErskinvillcRoad, Macdonaldtown, now stand- : ing deserted. It is placed'back from the road, ' enclosed in its own grounds, embosomed among'trees.'with a circular lawn, a winding gravel sweep, and a shaded balcony in front.

GOSSIPING CORNER. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 4 October 1884
GOSSIPING CORNER. Poor Davie Buchanan seems as unlucky with the projeots he takes in hand in the Assembly aB our worthy Borough Alder mau, Mr. Milne, at Council meetings. I don't know that he takes it to heart so much as the latter though. David is too thiok skinned to c9remuch; he has been bantered too much during his long course of eourt practice for failures to have effect upon lum. his uivorce Amendment Bill,' which met with so signal a defeat in the Assembly the other night, was certainly a novelty in colonial legislation. It pro posed that two years' desertiau was suffi cient cause to get the gordiau knot of matrimony out in twain. I quite agree with Mr. Buchanan that desertion is a crime that ought to be considered by the Court Ecclesiastical to some exteut ; but David goes too far in proposing that ' two years' ' absence should be sufficient. . It would play into the hands of the very men he desires to punish. There would be quite a elearance of discontented husbands, and gr...

In Memoriam. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 4 October 1884
In Memoriam. Those who know J. F. Fallick, Esq,, the Mayor of Macdonaldtown, will sympathise with him and. Mrs, Fallick in their , recent bereavement. On September 21, at Strick land Cottage, George-street, Macdonaldtown, their' beloved daughter, -Florence Amy, de parted this life. On the 26th September a well-known resident in Macdonaldtown was intcrred at the Necropolis, Rookwood, namely, William Henry Cousins. His age was only 36, and as the body was moved from his late. residence in George-street, opposite Kcddan's Cosmopolitan Hotel, to the Railway Station and was conveyed to his last earthly resting place,' it' was seen that many well known inhabitants both of -Newtown and Macdonaldtown. followed as a mark of respect. We observed among others the Mayor of Mac donaldtown (J. F. Fallick, lisq J, tho Rev. J, Mr. Peter James, Mr. J. Sweetman and Mr. Neitoh.
Wednesday, Half Holiday. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 4 October 1884
Wednesday, Half Holiday. . The members ot the Balmain Half Holi day Assotiation | are certainly to be con gratulated on the success that apparently attended their first day's closing. With the exception of the butchers—and some of those closed — and the 'pubs,' arid a few other shops,' .the streets presented quite a holiday appearance^ Before the hour, for closing they had a deserted look, but after one o'clock all the business done by the few shops remaining open wouldn't pay their rent. This certainly^ looks like publio support, arid we aincerely trust that it will proveto.be so; and, although we would be the last to advocate any system of boycotting, if thejhouiewives of those who at present enjoy the shorthoursla bor boon will only avoid shopping on Wednesday afternoon^ even although their butcher or other tradesmen do not dose, it will cause the business, on i the holiday afternoons to be so dull that the shopkeepers, holding , out will get tired of ' looking over their counter...
The Park Question. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 4 October 1884
The Park Question. ? Two deputations interviewed Mr. Stuait last week, one asking for the resumption of a part of- the Xmiandale Estate, and the other for Went'worth paddock. By arrangement the Premier was shown over .both sites on Monday morning, and without committing himself to anv thins admitted that either had very con siderable natural advantages for a recreation ground; He plainly told the Wentworth pad dock advocates that they need not dream of asking him to. resume any houses, which of course dispelled at once a lot of the calcula tions made, but beyond this he did not express aay decided opinion as to the probabilities of. * determination in favour of either position.:
