Weather. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 6 July 1895
Weather. In common with all your correspon dents, we must have a growl at the continued absence of rain. None worth recording has fallen since January, and the outlook for fruitgrowers is really alarming. The latter go about their orchard work often in s perfunctory manner of late, because of the very dry weather. This week a couple of heavy frosts — on Tuesday and Wednesday — haven't improved matters for them. A couple of years ago, Mr. E. W. O'Sullivan, M.P., was much in earnest in endeavouring to persuade the Government then in power to undertake experiments for bursting over-hanging clouds by means of dynamite, the member for Queanbeyan being confi dent that each experiments would be successful. But the Government wasn't on ; and the agitator's ardour evidently expired. Some of us out here are seriously thinking of interview ing Mr. O'Sullivan, with a view to having the matter eet a-going again I

Things in General. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 6 July 1895
Things in General. The visitor to Kenthurst finds much to attract his attention. The natural situation, with the Blue Mountains, in the distance, is very striking; while at many spots on the road, one feels that ' Oft the wayfaring man would love to linger there. Forgetful of his onward road, to gaze on scenes so fair.' For truly some of the fairiest scenes in Cumberland County are to be found in Kenthurst. Then the residents appear to be possessed of more than average ' go.' The roads are kept in excellent condition — and country folk know what that means. The local School of Arts is a much-valued institution, and although the committee have had a 'turn' or two lately about alleged dilatoriness in Btarting building opera tions, the; know their own business best ; and will doubtless spend the money in the most advantageous manner. Forethought has been shown, too, in the selection of a public reserve ?—a matter which older and more thickly-populated settlements overlook. The site for...
