Righted at Last. CHAPTER XXXV Continued. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 17 November 1888

Bighted at Last. CHAPTER XXXV Continued. Undo Dick did not repeat this angry exclamation ; but Madge could not for get it, nnd this remembrance- of it made hor this night tho more discontented that she could not bo always with Philip during tho ordeal through which he was passing. However, there was ono way in which Bho might render him practical assis tance; that was, by setting Caleb Kersey's mind at ease, and so enabling him to serve his master with a light heart, which is always a bravo one. She had delayed speaking to Sam Cul ver until she could' toll him that Caleb was not only working steadily but was successful, and could oiler Pansy a com fortable home. She would not wait any longer : she would speak to them both in tho morning. That thought helped her to sleep. For tho time, the more serious business which she had to do with Mr. Hadloigh held only a dis tant place in her mind. Calob had not been making- progress m his wooing-, and when ho became aware of. that fact, ho gro...

Auburn. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 17 November 1888

Auburn. 'Railway Cjiossin'o. — Somo residents on tho northern sido. of the Railway not satisfied with what the Progress Association havo done, and aro doing, with regard to obtaining facilities for safely crossing from one sido of tlie station to tho other, have initiated a movement to peti tion tho Railway Commissioners in favour of a subwav in ^reference to tho overhead briiliro promised by the Government some timo ago. Mr. Palmer is working tho matter up, and some . hundreds of signatures havo already been so eured. The viow taken by the Committee of the Progress Association was, that it was best to ask for for adequate pro vision for safe access from either sido, leaving it to tho authorities to decide in what way tho request should bo carried out.

A Water Famine in Parramatta. WHAT ARE THE PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 17 November 1888

A Water Famine in Parramatta. WHAT ARE THE PROSPECTS. Tim long continued drought, and tho rapidly decreasing quantity of water in Hunt's Crook reservoir, has been for some timo a source of considerable anxiety to tho Municipal authorities, and the officials who are immediate ly concerned with tho supply of water to the town, and as day after day lias gone by and thoir seems signs of a break in tho weather, this anxiety has been intensified. As it is at last evident *hat somo stops would have to bo taken to limit tho amount of water used for domestic purposes, and to prevent tho criminal waste of it on gardens, lawns, and in fountains, tho Mayor, acting with his usual promptitude culled a special meotingjof tho Council for last night (Friday), when tho rep rt of theOverseor of Works would be discussed, and means do vised for so regulating the supply that rate payers will bo put to us little inconvenience) as possible, as far as the supply for domestic pur poses is concerned, while th...

A Pitiful Story. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 17 November 1888

A Pitiful Story. A PAixi'tJii ease was broug-h under the notice at tho Central Oourt Sydney, on Wednesday, when Fanny Turnbull, a young -woman, was charged with abandoning her infant child, about six weeks old, whereby its health might have boon seriously injured. The story, as told in evidence, was a sad one. The woman nacl neon m service m j/arramatta, anct six weeks ago she was confined of a male child at tho houso of Rebecca Reid, Marsclen-stro-t, Parramatta, and on the 2.3th ultimo she left with the baby, but returned soon afterwards without it, saying that sho had loft it with some friends at Ashfiold.

A NOVEL IDEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 17 November 1888

A NcvEr. Idea. A correspondent writes : — Kindly permit mo to point out a very simple way of giving satisfaction to everybody of relieving the Government, and get ting out of tho present difficulty at tho same time. It is officially assorted that there are only 30 acres of vines infested with phylloxera at jirosent in this colony and that their immediate destruction would stamp the insect out of New South Wales. It should, therefore bo very easy for those vinegrowers of Vic toria, or elsewhere, who insist upon tho Cumberland vinej'iivds being destroyed to form ii syndicate for buying tho in fested vineyards, which I think they could do at a £100 per acre. The own uers could then, in their own ways, des troy their newly acquired vines for say another £100 per aero, so that for tho paltry sum of £0000 at tho most thoso kind people so evidently interested in stamping phylloxera out of New South Wales, at the cost of tho public treasury, would confidently socuro tho end they havo in vie...

A Day with Mr. Angus Mackay. No. III. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 17 November 1888

A Day with Mr. Angus Mackay. No. III. (lj\' OUl! Sl'ilOIAI, Rui'ORTKl!). WufcTiHiii of iiiittU-n pre/jciisc, or from th.it utterly unaccountable perversion of moral re sponsibility for which the average 'intelligent compositor' is infamous, No. II of this series of papers was made to terminate with the com mittal words, 'to bo continued.' Doubtless all that is to be learned in 'a field day out with the learned and geneal Lecturer on Agriculture of Uio Technical College of Now South Wales is not to be exhausted in recapitulation in two or three columns of type. But there is a limit to the capacity of absorbing wisdom, and an other—and a more arbitrary one — to that of disguising it. Such limit I thought had been reached, when, lo and behold ! the reckless and irresponsible type-suatcher ruthlessly commits mctoT.he promise ' lo be continued.' tarn reminded at this point of an anecdote told of that eccentric divine, Mr. Shina, Minister in the early part of this century of the 'West U.P...

Presu ming that Sir Henry is correctly re ported, his language is most extrava gant, and unjust to the gentlemen com posing tho board, as one aud all, I am sure, are as anxious as ho is to conserve tho public interest in dealing with tho matter placed iu their hands; and I venture to assert that if any gentlemen possessing the requisite knowlodgo wore askocl to consider our valuations they would be unanimous in finding that the awards had been most carefully and justly arrived at, both iu the public interest as well as that of thoso from whom the property was taken.

Sir Henry Parkos said that the board hud made several recommendations for compensation to lie paid to holders of vmoyards, but up to the present ho had not seen his way to approve of them. They appeared to be extravagant and would certainly pluugo tho country into a very uncertain expenditure. He was inclined to think that another step must be taken, tJiat the board must bo done away with, and that an inspector must be appointed. Obviously tho recom mendations as to compensation were far in excess of tho real merits of the case. Mr. Lyno said that there appeared to be an impression in the other colonies that sufficiently energetic steps were not, being taken iu thi...

KISSING POINT ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 17 November 1888

KISSING POINT ROAD. Mr. F. Farnell, M.P., has received the following: —"'Department of Public Works,     Sydney, 12th November, 1888.— Sir,— With reference to your representations as to the necessisty for constructing a small bridge over Bishop's Creek, Rydalmere, which you state would open a road connecting the new Parra- matta Road with the Kissing Point Road, I am directed to inform you that the Secretary for Public Works is unable to authorise a compliance with your request. From the reports received it would appear that the con- struction of the proposed bridge would cost £500, which the Department would not be justified in incurring, as the road referrrd to does not meet on both sides of the creek. Before anything can be done, therefore, the question of the road should be adjusted by the residents with the Survey Department. — I have, etc., J. Barling, Under Secretary.

Carlingford. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 17 November 1888

Carlingford. Prince of Wales' Birthday being a public holiday, the majority took advantage of the same. Some spent their day at the races, others formed themselves into parties and pic- niced at selected spots in the district, and a large number wended their way to various attractions on the shores of the beautiful har-   bour and coast. The trains that passed through seemed to be well filled with excur- sionists on their way to selected portions of the line, and I may say they all appeared to be on pleasure bent, and determined to fully enjoy themselves for the day. The weather was all that could be desired, and as far as I can learn no accidents have taken place. On the afternoon of that eventful day the house of Mr. Joseph Franks was broken into. It appears that Mr. Franks, determining to be no different to his neighbours, left with his wife and family for a day's pleasure in Parra- matta, but wisely took the precaution to leave a servant girl at home in charge of th...
