The Willis Mystery. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 6 July 1895
The Willis Mystery. In connection with the sudden disap pearance of Mr. A. Willis, the son of a very old and respected family in this district (and which ciroumstanco was reported m the Feee Pbess a few days ago), there is very little more light to be thrown on the subject. We have it on fairly good authority, however, that n mn,n Annwarinp A. Willis1 descrirjtion was seen a few days ago on the Glades ville bridge by the man in charge of the ' turn-stile.' This piece of information was imparted to the police by the man in question ; but the former are loth to think that Willis contemplated suicide. The man was 39 years of age : and his parents have offered a substantial re ward for his recovery. It might be mentioned that in connection therewith searoh parties are daily scouring the district; and it is fervently hoped that their efforts will soon be rewarded.
DUNDAS The Orchards. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 6 July 1895
DUNDAS The Orchards. The orchards in this and the im mediate district have suffered through the dry season; and the orange and mandarin (main crops) are, in con sequence, quite unremunerative to the growers — so miserably small and parched do they appear. One venerable fruitgrower says that the present crop bottoms the record. Rain is badly wan tod.
Hooping Cough. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 6 July 1895
Hooping Cough. [By Ustt.] Though phlegm ma; be coughed np by a hooping cough patient, it is not a symptom or sign of hooping cough. In hooping cough it is usual (or nothing to be coughed up, and for fits of coughing to come on just as if there were great quantities of matter to come up. A cross word or anything that annoys or. irritates will bring on a kind of coughing. One coughing in a room may start another just as one laughing may start another. The cause of hooping cough is a strong and irregular concentration of nerve foroe upon the nerves of the throat. This causes a corres ponding weakened nervous action elsewhere. This explains why strong-willed children have it worse than weaker-willed, and why adults have it worse than children. This explanation of the disease also points ont the principles that must guide successful treatment. Avoid all harsh and irritating treatment. Draw off nervous action from the throat by stimulating it elsewhere. Just before a kink of hooping cough...

A Charitable Effort. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 6 July 1895
A Charitable Effort. The local constable (Mr. B. Yates) has taken in hand a philanthropio matter. His effort is connected with that on behalf of the ragged and orphan less children of Sydney; and the sub eoription-card used is of a novel des oription. In one of its illustrations is shown, piotonsJly, the character of the destitution and desolation of the poor little city waif. The constable had a very buBy time collecting the.;' bo-bees ' on Saturday, at the football match, and succeeded fairly well. It should be mentioned that the list closes on the lfeth instant. . '

A Letter from "Fair Play." [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 6 July 1895
A Letter from 'Fair Play.' A letter is to hand, evidently from a sympathiser with Carlingford football. ' Fair Play,' the writer, takes a course we do not care to encourage, in seeking to fight a sporting battle in public ; but if he had sent along his card we might have inserted the more reasonable por tions of his letter, since that letter pur ports to be a reply to someone who has already ' had his say.' Still, if ' Fair Play ' will be advised by us he'll be content with downing his opponents on the proper convincing ground, the field of play.

A DANGEROUS CROSSING. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 6 July 1895
A DANGEROUS CROSSING. The cube crossing at the intersection of Daroy and Church streets, Parramatta, is be coming extremely dangerous owing to tho wearing away of the roadway immediately adjacent. There have of late been severe! narrow escapes from casualties with vehicles ; and on Monday morning a young man named Quinn received a nasty spill from his horse through bis animal's hoofs slipping on the irregular roadway.

Woore, J.P., City Coroner, held an inquest on Saturday at the Balmain Cottage Hospital, touching the death of Charles M'Niool Jarvis, who died in that institution on the previous day from injuries received on the Gladesville-road on Thursday. From the evi dence it appears that the deceased, who was about 56 years of age, and was a married man with six children, residing at Drnmmoyne, was in company with Mr. Archibald Howie, of 447 Darling-street, West Balmain,' riding along the Gladesville-road, and when opposite the Gl&des- ville Hospital for Insane endeavoured to pass the near side of a cart belonging to Messrs. Lambert Brothers, undertakers, of Gladesville, when he collided with the shaft, the result being that the shaft entered Mr. Jarvis's thigh and unhorsed him. Dr. Graham stated that deceased had lost a considerable quantity of blood, and this, together with shock to the system, was the cause of death. The jury re turned a ...
FIELD OF MARS TRAMWAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 6 July 1895
FIELD OF MARS TRAMWAY. Mr. E. B. Price, late examiner of public works, gave further evidence before the Public Works Committee on Saturday last, with re spect to the proposed Field of Mars tramway. If there was any connection afforded to the Field of Mars, said Mr. Price, it should be by way of Woolwich. The all land route would be so long that it would not provide the means of communication that the purchasers of land in the locality were led at the time of the pur chase to expect. Mr. Price was asked whether a line might not be advantageously taken either up Lane Cove or on the other side, by Tartan Creek. He did not think so, owing to the nature of the approaches.
