A Strange Cremation. [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 5 September 1895

A Strange Cremation. One of the strangest coffins ever told of is one for which' the War Office is responsible. The story is that a workman engaged in casting metal for the manufacture of ordin ance at the Arsenal lost his balance, and fell into a cauldron containing twelve tons of molten steel. Tbe metal was at a white heat, and the man was utterly consumed in less time than it takes to tell of it. The Office authorities held a conference, and decided not to profane the dead by using the' metal in the manufacture of ordinance, and that mass of metal has actually been buried, and a Church oif England clergyman , read the 6ervice for the dead over it, ' Pleasure becomes monotonous, but happi* ness never. . ' ? r Stammering is practically unknown among uncivilised' people, ? v For Snow-white Clothes use Rbd Cross Soap. 6d and la bars. All Storekeepers. ; ; H

Bob's Range. [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 5 September 1895

Bob's Range. r [From our correspondent.] The continued dry weather is indeed . a great obstacle to the residents who - are striving to make ends meet. Agricultural pursuits seems almost at a standstill here. The land is too dry for the seed to germin ate. Dairying pursuits reoeive but a slight reward for continued labour. The cattle are very poor and weak, some have already died, while others are on tthe verge of death; not only are the cattle ' deficient of fodder, but also of water. I think it would be a great boon to the dairyman, if in the sum mer season when grass is plentiful, if it were mown and stacked for winter forage. I am sure that the cattle would be benefited by the grass that was either burnt or ploughed in. Begarding water some plan should be- devised for its better pre servation during flood time, instead of al lowing the water to run away to the river Many of the residents are drawing water from a distance, which means time and trouble; which would have been better...

A Flustrated Daddy. [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 5 September 1895

A. Flustrated Daddy.' A young Camden Benediot thus writes to his sister 'Dear Sister — I how take my seat and set down to take this opportunity to inform you that I am ' Daddy'— that is, I suppose I ' am, for Abbie has got a nice fat baby, and we hope that these few lines will find you enjoying the great blessing. Now this is to be strictly a business letter. Firstly, as I said before, Abbie has got as nice a baby as evar made up faces. Next ly, I have swopped away old Buckskin, and think I have got a pretty nice horse. It is a little girl and weighs nine pounds (I mean the baby), and is just as fat as butter and has got a good strong pair of lungs, She is red and got a bob-tail (the horse I mean) and a white stripe in her face, and is a good driver. She has got blue eyes and a dimple in her chin (I mean tfcie baby now, and just the prettiest mouth that ever was (of course), and, judging from her teeth^ I should think she was about six years old (I mean the horse now); she is sound,...

Lawn Tennis [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 5 September 1895

Lawn Tennis. On Saturday last, a tennis match between Cainden and Picton tobk place on the Union Club's court, when the visitors were badly beaten. Tbe court was in a wretched con dition, yet, notwithstanding this facty some very brilliant play was shown by the contest ants, who occasionally came in for hearty applause from a large number of ladies and gp.ntlemen present, who evinced the keenest interest in the gatne. The ladies who took part in the contest pJayed an excellent game throughout, exhibiting great dash and judg ment. ? Mrs. Rotton for Picton, and Misa Thomas for Camden, played particularly well. Miss Bell, as server, has no equal among her sex, and there are only a lew gentlemen who can beat her in that depart ment of the game. This lady is also an adept^in playing' r hard back to base line. For Camden, .the gentlemen players— Dr. Bell, Dr, Morton, Messrs W. Farquhar, and Maddox, played with dhsh and brilliancy but at odd times the.y showed, a little weakness in volleyi...

ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 5 September 1895

ANSWERS TO CORRESPOITiDSNCE, G. — Burragorang : Yes! the best prodigious dog story we ever heard. told was as follows. Yours was nothing equal to it, although good for publi cation : — 41 A dog, whose owner had onoe forgotten to attend to its food in acoordance with his habitual custom, trotted off into the garden, plusked a spray of forget-me-nots with its teeth, and on returning to the house, nresented the emblem to its forgetful master!' This is surely enough to reduce all other inventors of ' authentic dog stories,' to abjeot despair. But the etrangest thing of all is that it does not come from the other side of , the Atlantio. Brother Jonathan must really look to his laurels, if he does not want Cousin Fritz to beat him. Try the above and see if you oan equal it. W. — Camden: — Will you in your next issue let me know the names of the birds prohibited under the Act to be shot or trapped during the present close season.

"KISS ME, JACK, AND LET ME GO." [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 5 September 1895

'KISS ME, JACK, AND LET MB GO.' Onoe, long ago, I was witness to a duel in Cali ! fornia. The two men had been bosom friends, but had quarelled about (of course) a woman. Splendid fellows both— young, brainy, and ambitious. As they stood in a clear space aniong the pine trees near Sacramento, pale as lillies, steady as rooks, weapons in hand waiting for the word, the rising sun shining athwart the line of vision, they pre sented a picture too often seen in 1856. The pistols cracked almost simuitareously. Une man stood erect, evidently untouched ; the other fell, .upon his baok and lay straight and still. Seconds, sprgeons, and spectators rushed to his side. He was ' all there, , mind aa well as body. No, don't disturb me, ' he said coolly to the doctor, I'm shot fatally, and' shall die in :fi*e. miriutes. Call Jack and be quick.' Pistol still in hand, his antagonist came and bent over his erstwhile chum. The excitement ajpong the crowd was intense ; the dying man alone was- ealm. 'J...

The Wealth of Nations. [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 5 September 1895

Wealth of Natio&s. : In the last number of the Monde Moderns, M. G. Francois publishes a curious article on the comparative wealth of different nations. England occupies the second place with £10,600,000,000 following the United States of America with , £12,530,000,000, « «-? VI ? . 1 Am Aaa « « ? ? ' ana preceding u ranee wirn x&,uuu,uuu,000, Immediately afterwards, comes Germany (£6,440,000,000) . and Bussia (£5,080,000. 000). Three nations possess more than £2,000,000,000 and less than £4,000,000,000. The wealth of the 1 1 other nations ranges from £120,000,000 to £1,360,000,000. Coined money is, of course, included in all these figures; but in each country it forms but an insignificant part of the national wealth. The wealth of the nineteen nations studied by M. G. Francois amounts to £59,028,000,000. The author, broaches next the question of the equal distribution of wealth by a sort of social liquidation. To those people who may be tempted to accept this idea h...
