Cuttings. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 October 1881

(feitta. A 'Magnificent Echo.'— Up in the Lehigh valley there is an hotelkeeper who has a mountain about a quarter of a mile from his Bouse, and it occurred to him that it would be a good idea if he could fix things so that a mag nificent echo could be heard from the mountain, by persons who stood at his hotel ond hallooed. So he engaged a boy to secrete himself behind a clump of trees, with orders to repeat the words of anyone talking on the roof of the hotel. After practising to make sure, the landlord announced one day bis discovery of the echo, ond took up a number of friends to enjoy it. They called for halfan hour, but no echo responded. At last, when the landlord had become crimson with rage, and was about to give in, the echo came, but not in the shape expected. It said : ' Bin down to the spring for mother. Fire away now, I'm all right.' The guests smiled, and mine host suddenly disappeared. It is dangerous now to mention the word 'echo 'in that hotel. Married Men. — There ...

This is, no doubt, a great question, and one of vital importance to the farming interests of the colony; and I am glad to see that the Government recognize it as such, for they have appointed a Commission to enquire into same, who are now taking evidence in Sydney. While I intend giving a few specimens of what I have heard in my travels, it is not my inten tion to express any opinion thereon. At one place I met a farmer who, after reading me through, said, 'Well, if the trainage to Sydney on my last lot of potatoes had not swamped the whole of the proceeds, I would give you a trial ; but the fact is, I have no money, although I have ple...

? ^i fljjricfyt dfruM We hope to see this manly and truly English game go ahead this season as it has never done before, A team of the best English players are now on their way to the colonies, via America, in which country they have played against eighteen at New York, and won easily in one innings. We do not know what kind of players they have in New York, but if they are any good, which we suppose they are, we may expect to see some very good cricket from the team now on the way to our shores ; such being the case, it behoves all true lovers of this excellent game to see to it that the western district makes a good show against them should they favour us with a visit. Cricketing material of the best, of course, is re quired to play a good game, and this may be ob tained from E. Webb and Co., at prices hitherto unheard of.

jtarittff MariuiML In this enlightened age when no family should be without its sewing machine, the question arises, which is the best machine, and persons very often l|ny low priced or second-hand machines, not knowing at what low prices they can now obtain the velry best machines made.

The Ladies. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 November 1881

tft% $&im. The novel Exhibition just held at Bathurst has been an unprecedented success. In fact, so great has this success been that many persons are asking how it was started ? who made it a success ? who originated the affair, and carried out the whole arrangements ? From what we know about the matter, the Honorary Secretaries, Mr. H. A. Crouch and Mr. C. E. B. Maybury, have spent much, if not all, their time in writing, working, and planning for the grand Exhibition ; and to them the thanks of all concerned are most certainly due. Among the gentlemen who set themselves to work well we must also mention Messrs. J. Rutherford, W. G. Thompson, W. H. Paul, McKenzie, MacDougal, S. W. Webb, Richards, Cohen and friend (Balmain), H. Mugridge, and J. A. Fletcher. To all these gentlemen many thanks are due for the success. But there was one agency at work which, more than all others contri buted to the successful carrying out of the Exhibition ; marvellous and wonderful was the ma...

In having this grand Exhibition, the Bathurst people have started many new industries among the rising generation, and the success that has attended this affair, no doubt, will stimulate other places to have something similar.

? ^ — % $oiichuu) §ttm. (Protestant Standard.) ' One rarely meets with a more touching romance than is found in the following story which comes from Wales.' An English paper says :— ' A num ber of years ago a number of miners exploring an old pit that had long been closed, found the body of a young man dressed in a fashion long out of date. TIia ™iMilinr notion of the air of the mine was such as to preserve the body so perfectly that it appeared asleep rather than dead. The miners were puzzled at the circumstance. No one in the district was missed within their rememberance, and at last it was resolved to bring the oldest inhabitant— an old lady, long past the eightieth year, who had lived single in the village the whole of her life. On being brought into the presence of the body, a strange scene occurred. The old lady fell on the corpse^ kissed it, and addressed it by every term of loving endearment spoken i* the language of a bygone generation. He was her only love ; she had waited...
