RACKS AT CLARENDON. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 30 July 1881
RACKS AT CLARENDON. A SHALL gathering of sportsmen took place at Clareado i on Saturday afternoon last. Host Young, of Richmond, with his usual civility, dispensed creature comforts to those who fouud the track somewhat dusty, and as far as an outsider could see was as busy as a " bee iu a bottle." The racing did not re- ceive that attention from the general public one generally sees on such occasions, seem- ing to be more taken up with a series of ? " crowing matches" by sundry human roosters, which in the end culminated in a real " set to," which caused finality. The afternoon's racing was as follows : The Clarendon Handicap, of £8, for all horses ; distance, one mile-Phair's Specula- tion 1, Roberts' Fireball 2, Lady Chester 3. Second Race; for all hacks; 8 govs; dis- tance, half a mile-Wood's Pracilla 1, Pear- son's Windsor belle 2, Hough's Tim 3. Third Race-Ladies Purse, of 5 so vs., for all comers; distance, three quarters of a. mile-Phair's Partner 1, Roberts' Lady Chester 2,...

A Real Experience. BY G. B. C. A CHRISTMAS WITH BUSHRANGERS. CONTINUED. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 30 July 1881
A. Real Experience. BY G. B. C. A CHRISTMAS WITH BUSHRANGERS. CONTINUED. BOTH bushrangers' faces relaxed their stern expression. " Well, Mr. Cartwright," said Pearson, " Your mate's in gond spirits, at any rate, and now-Welcome to our camp !" I was certainly surprised. A natural clearing in the scrub of some hundred acres showed a beautifully grassed fljt, in the middle of which rose a copious spring, large enough with proper care, to water a good-sized tract of country, although in its present state, it was soon absorbed by. the sandy nature of the surrounding soil. There was truth then, in what I had heard rumoured, that the station possessed perma meiit water, and could I but once get clear of my prt-sent difficulties, the spring would be a magnificent Christmas gift. '1 he mallee round was very dense, inter- spersed with porcupine grass, and jutted in spurs on to the island of verdure that the bushrangers had taken possession of. Hob- bled out in all directions were their horses...

Ordered to go back to the service of his master, Edward ßowd. John Green appeared on summons for assaulting S. J. Dunstan, and also fir assault- ing Leslie Dunstan. There was a great deal ol evidence taken in this case, some of which seemed to be very contradictory-the defend- ant getting warm in his cross-examination of witnesses. The case was eventually adjourned until next Court-day for adjudication of a second magistrate. The same person was charged by Senior sergeant...

CHARCOAL FOR FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 30 July 1881
CHARCOAL FOR FOWLS. THKKE is one thing: which Nature does not supply and which civilization renders quite necessary to fowls. It is charcoal. Char coal made of wood does not answer the pur- pose. It has no taste of food, it is not attractive to fowls, and is seldom eaten. But if any one will put an ear of ripe corn into the fire until the grains are weil charred, and then shell off the corn and throw it to the flock, he will see an eagerness developed and a healthy constitution brought about which will make a decided improvement. All pale combs will become a bright red, the bus} song which precede» laying will be heard, and the average yield of eggs greatly increased.
THE FARMER. THREE WAYS OF GROWING POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 30 July 1881
THE FAE MER. THREE WAYS OF GROWING POTATOES. I HAVE three neighbours, each of whonjL believes that utily his own method of raising, potatoes is correct ; yet last year all three pT their crops were unexceptionably fine and as nearly alike in quality, quantity, and appear? ance as it was possible to be. In many ways there is an apparent antagonism iu the systems$ yet upon one point all art agreed, and, after ali, this is the main principle of success-úe¿ thorough cultivation. The first of these men invariably selects sod-ground only; breaks!}; up ii the autumn, ploughing it deeply, yet not using a subsoil plough.- The following spring he runs out as deep a furrow as pos- sible, taking care not to interfere with the ¿fe yet unrolled sod, and then scatters a'ong tb¿ row a liberal allowance of short, rich nrajiure^ The " seed" potatoes have been selected long before planting time, usuaiiy duriug the digging season, when the entire crop passes in review before the critical eye of the own...
THE Hawkesburg Chronicle. AND FARMERS' ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, JULY 30, 1881. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 30 July 1881
THE lauikeéttrií Cjpnirl?. AND FARMERS' ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, JULY SO, 1881. Is THIS a temperate age, or not ? This ques- tion naturally arises from bearing on all sides such a hullabuloo about Temperance. The existing state of things appears to suit neither party of extremists, nor probably, those who prefer to pursue a middle course. This being the case, then, our legislators have a difficult task to perform, for, let them enact a measure ever so equitable it is bound not to give satisfaction, and the enaclois have tu submit to such terms as " trimmers," *' facing- both wajs," and a variety of other equally complimentary terms. If again, they legislate in a decided manner-without consulting the many conflicting opinions around them-they are designated '* autocrats," " tyrants," " over bearing upstarts," and so on, simply because each sectiuu of the community want to have their way and none other. When the Government first introduced their new Licens- ing Bill we heaid great kudos fr...
