DISTRICT NEWS. PATERSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 3 February 1894

DISTRICT NEWS. I ? . .[From our Correspondents.] PATERSON. Since the dawning of 1891 our little town has been extremely dull, and there is little of public interest stirring in our midst. The forthcoming election is the great topic, and several names have already been announced as candidates for this electorate. We think any new comer will find groat difficulty, whatever his principles and policy may be, in displacing our present member, Mr. H. H. Brown, from his stronghold here. Our timber trade lins increased considerably, and some really splendid specimens of timber have been turned out from Paterson. There is constant traffic in this direction here, and our timber for warded to meet large contracts in Sydney, New castle, and up .the line. This industry is becoming a very important one in our midst. Our district is looking remarkably well at present. The recent rains have proved a blessing in' the time of need. 140 points were registered here, but higher up the river a much great...

RAYMOND TERRACE. The aldermen who retire from tho Municpal Council this year are Messrs. Jas. Crane and John Hanlow. Both have been nominated for reelec tion, and are being opposed by Messrs.

MANNING RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 3 February 1894

MANNING RIVER. Heavy rain fell here on Saturday afternoon last, and continued with slight intermission throughout Sunday and Monday. To-day (Tuesday) has been showery, but at present the weather seems to have cleared, and it is likely to be fine. The amusements on the river on Anniversary Day consisted of the Lower Manning Turf Club Races, held at Cundle Plains ; a schnapper excur sion in the tug ' John Gollan' ; and a ball at night in Cundlotown in connection with the Roman Catholic Church. The races, I believe, passed off successfully, although unfortunately for the genial and hard working Secretary, Mr. J. J. McDonoll. His horse, Gladstone, was a great favourite in the two big handicaps. He won the mile race ; but in the big handicap, for which only Miller's Scientist aud he started, something appeared wrong with him, for his jockey could not get him going until hiB opponent had a coi.sidorn.ble lead. He however closed on Scientist, and a good race resulted in a hard win for Scie...

LOSTOCK. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 3 February 1894

LO STOCK. This has not- been a very dry month, even from ; its commencement, and it has finished up with a wet week. The first few days' downpour was not unacceptable, but it is possible to have too much of a good thing, even of rain in summer. We had the river up for a day or two, and no mail on Tuesday ; always a disappointment. xae crops are looking wen, tne corn spienain. Some will be fit to pull in a few weeks, and a good yield is anticipated. We have hoard of some ex cellent yields in potatoes this season, and more are 'being grown than is usual in the district. It is a pity the town market is already so fully supplied. We are glad to be able to give a better report as to health than last month. We have heard of no fresh cases of serious illness. There is a movement on foot to supply us and our neighbours up river and down with a resident medical man, that luxury which may any day become a necessity. Many will be glad to hear that his residence is an accomplished fact. The fru...

Battle Scenes. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 3 February 1894

Battle Scenes. General C. H. Howa-d, U.S. army, has com- ! municatrd to the English Peace Society a paper in which be remarks : — Crowded into one summer morning of battle were ne or two personal incidents which may help to give the true significance to historic figures— so many wounded — so many killed. Before our brigade was fully engaged, in passing to the left, where firing had begun, I met four men tenderly bearinsr in a blanket a wounded officer. In a moment I learned it was the colonel in command of the 81st Pennsylvania regiment, — my friend, a beloved and trusted officer. He was already dead. A little later in the morning, my own brother r eived a rifle ball in the elbow joint. It went crashing through the joint and lodged in the upper bone of the arm. His arm was amputated that afternoon. How little does the simple statement of these facta convey, as to the pain endured, as to the agony of the heai ts in the far off home ; as to a maimed body for life in the one instance, ...

Infant Prodigies. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 3 February 1894

Infant Prodigies. The ranks of ' infant prodigy' art are increasing to an extent which ia positively alarming to adult virtuosi. For what chance has the veteran piano player or fiddler against the astonishing feats o£' those Bmall boys, who we are told, leave their tops and balls in the dressing-room to eome out and electrify an audience ? Master Rhyl Bowen, a five and a-lialf year old violinist, with an astonishing technique, has just; made his second public appearance in London, and is said to reveal a greater talent than did Sarasate at the same age. It is not likely that this small Welsh boy will really develop into a finished adult artist, as his public appearances will be rare ; and his father, who is a musician, and instructs him, will not sacrifice him to rapacious management. But then there is the ptanist wonder, Raoul Koczalski, a poor little boy of eight, about whom the tops and balls and hoop3 can only be a horrible myth, since the child is embarking on a London season, ...

Chasing the Dead. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 3 February 1894

Chasing the Dead. A.t 11 o clock in the forenoon the breeze died qaite away and left the big ship lazily rising and falling on the ground swell of the South Atlantic. At noon the captain and mate took their obssrva tions, and half an hour later it was written on tho log that our position was 400 miles south-west o£ Tristan d' Acunlia Island. Between 11 and 12 a man aloft reported what bo believed to be a small boat under sail to tho north-east. When the glass was sent up to him he made her out to be a ship's quarter boat with sail set and heading doivn for us. Although there was not wind enough to move us, the little fabric was shoved along slowly, and soon after the men had eaten their dinner the craft was in sight from the deck. A ship's boat at sea means that disaster has happened, and sympathy is at once aroused. The cook was ordered to have an extra dinner ready, the steward received a bottle of wine to be served out if necessary, and some of the men went into the d'jek-house t...

I tried doctors, and also nearly every advertised cure, but without relief. My attention was drawn to the wonderful cures performed by Clements Tonic. I tried it with the mo3t gratifying results. Before I had finished the first bottle I regained my appetite, and improved then daily. When I feel any symptom of tho old complaint, I fly to Cle ments Tonic, which gives me instant relief. ...

REPAIRING HIS FAULT. CHAPTER XXV. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 3 February 1894

REPAIRING HiS FAULT. CHAPTER XXV. Though much had been gained by the discovery of Dandy in responsible hands, Kit could not easily forego the satisfaction of taking him home, and saving his uncle much future trouble and loss in recovering his property. Having abandoned the idea of ' stealing' him, Kit began to meditate a different and hardly less audacious plan of accomplishing his purpose with out letting Dandy go out of his sight. This ho proceeded to put into practice on Eli's return from the village. Eli was in ercpllonh sninh ? ? humour, Kit thought, that ho would have main- i tained had he come home to find that his visitor had galloped away on his new horse. He had se cured evidence corroborating Kit's story of the presence of the fruit-thieves in the oyster-saloon the evening before ; all had been identified, and warrants were out for those not already in j custody. j Mr. Badger, therefore, appeared well disposed I toward one who had done him so important a ser vice, and had...
