STRAY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong and Tumut Express and Tumbarumba Post — 1 May 1900
STRAY NOTES. (By the Fugitive.) There is probably no industry that starts a country along at so fast a rate as mining. And the miner's game is risky. In seeking to open up new fields he faces and braves danger in the shape of privation, sickness, and accident; and this far away from the heart of civilisation. Sometimes he strikes it lucky, but oftener he doesn't. If he discovers a payable show that requires some capital to open up it is a common saying that some ' swindlecate ' pursues him, works him out of it, and puts him on to work on his own discovery, fitted with dangerous and ill - supervised ma chinery and budly-protected ground. When he strikes pay dirt that he can work himself, he paves the way for many others to make a living. But rarely is it that the original dis coverer of a payable mineral field conies out on top, and if he isn't killed or maimed generally dies in a tent or gunyah in his . old age, neglected by all and sundry. Looking at the rapid progress Australia ha...

Town Improvements. A very neat little weatherboard cottage is being built by Mr. William Boston, sen., in Campbell-street. The well-known contractor, Mr. W. J. Ritchie, has just completed for himself a commodious 'Swiss villa' residence, on land facing the Park site, opposite the Public School. The erection of the Cyanide AVorks adjoining the Reefer Battery is going on apace. Tho vats are nearly ready for being placed in position, and the tramway is constructed as far as the lower sand-pit. One of our landmarks, old 'Blink Bonny,' the residence of Mr. W. D. Smith, is undergoing general repairs, and is having an addition in the shape of a couple of capacious rooms. Mr. T. W. Witts, the ex-proprietor of the 'Royal,' who has dispensed bonhoinmie to hundreds of grateful constituents, is vastly improving his residence, 'Rockleigh,' which in a very short time will be one of the show places of our district. A substantial cottage is being erected by Mr. M. Bruce, in Williams town.

Scholastic. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong and Tumut Express and Tumbarumba Post — 1 May 1900
Scholastic. MASTER Edwin Prowse, son of Mr. Richard Prowse, of Cornishtown, has been appointed pupil teacher on pro- bation in the Adelong Public School. Master Prowse has commenced his &nbsp; career in rather a brilliant manner, he having, with his schoolmate (Miss Fanny Menlove), succeeded in secur- ing first place in the Wagga com- petition in September last, when 33 candidates, representing seven of the most important school of the district, &nbsp; sat for the test. The Adelong School secured no less than 4 passes, the positions being 1st, 2nd, 5th and 10th. Such a result speaks volumes for the class of instruction given at this &nbsp; school, and we cannot remember any country school beating this record previously. We hear that a move- ment is on foot among the parents of the successful candidates to in some way recognise the services of Mr. Vivian, who certainly must have taken a very great deal of trouble in their preparation. &nbsp; Master Les...
OBITUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong and Tumut Express and Tumbarumba Post — 1 May 1900
OBITUARY. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; We are sorry to have to record the &nbsp; death of Mr. Geo. Howarth's child, aged 18 months, at Shepardstown. The little one has been a sad sufferer, having been in delicate health for the past six months. Mrs. Howarth took it to Sydney some time ago, and con- sulted doctors there, but without any avail. The parents are all the more &nbsp; to be sympathised with, as this is their second loss, their infant having died &nbsp; &nbsp; a few months ago from whooping cough. It is with sincere regret that we record the death of Mr. David M'Cullum, an old and respected &nbsp; &nbsp; native of Tumut. The death of Mr. &nbsp; M'Callum came as a great shock to his relatives and friends, as the day before he was out collecting rents from some of his tenants, he being the owner of several houses in New- town. On Friday night he retired to &nbsp; bed in his usual st...
