By Guest Columnist "Paddock To Punter" Harry Quigley THIS week I'm all historical. SOME early-day reporters con sidered that the use of pond erous words . portrayed the superior journalist. Glancing through the "Cum berland Year Book" of 1885 I came across this: "The Lennox SBridge nuisance is still abom inablest of olfactory tioubles." "The writer could have easily -said: 'The river down. at the .ridge. still hums'." WTOULD you believe that when a census was'.taken in .the 'ighties Prospect had nearly ,wice the population of Gran -ille! The figures were: Pros ?ect 672, Granville 372. At that time the. Prospect Reservoir was bei ng constructed ifid there was a s bstantial float ng population at "The Damn." [4NE of my earliest recollec tions concerns a visit, as a ,ee kid, to Prospect on a -Sat rday night. Looking back now can only compare the place vith one of those wild west .umining shlows ;vi.a e^: ' the Icks." With the aid ofý -flare labmps iawkers were -doing good busi tess whi...

That -ihouse was not the only, wooden structure to suffer, be Cause of this record flood. I saw at: least two other wooden structures go down under Lennox Bridge, before the river had risen to its 'flood" height-structures that usually then were erected right at the rear of the house with a pan* therein.

(By HARRY QUIGLEY.) Because of its soft condition, consequent upon the recent rains, the course proper at Rosehill was closed for most of last week. Let's hope it will have recovered for next Saturday's meeting. High Jip left on Monday for Brisbane where he is engaged in the Stradbroke Handicap next Saturday. High Jip went by plane, but trainer Bert ·tan :ton, accompanied by his wife, made the trip by car. When I asked if Trover was going, Bert said, "He's too old to be going on long trips. He'll be better at home." Arrowsmith is back at Rose hill after racing for some time in "the bush".

Sanitary Services "Inadequate" Residents Say [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 26 April 1950

Sanitary S-ertices "Inadequ?'' Residents Say. Residents 'of Calliope Street, Guildford, last week, bitterly complained of alleged .inadequate sanitary services in their area. They told Holroyd Council that they had been forced to wait ten days for the removal of night soil from their homes. This had occurred on three occasions, they added. The Health Inspector (Mr. V. R. E. Macklin) told council that "everything possible" was being done to 'give efficient sanitary services in the municipality. "With the lack of suitable labor, it would be impossible for council to give more efficient service," he added. . Alderman F. Corkill said that an open-type sanitary waggon was recently used in the area. Council has referred the mat ter to its sanitary contractor, and a report is expected to be made shortly on sanitary services in the municipality.
