Typhoid Valley. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 2 August 1884

. Typhoid Valley. The . picture has been overdrawn-.- The . paint has been laid too thickly on the canvass. That jtallisb;- thinish gentleman in .spectacles, who . came out from the - Sydney Morning ; Herald and wrote the article on what he called ' Thyphoid -.Valley' existing, he says; at ; Macdonaldtown, has said too muchjbecause.he knew too little. It' is evident he was inspired or prompted by somebody. A . certain clergy man, a certain alderman, and a certain official went about with him, -with, asjit is said, .pieces of camphor to smell at, and having- seon a little, add heard more, he went home and wrote the nrticle. It has given 'offenee at Newtown, but much more at Macdonaldtown. The people in the. latter' place'say that although thare are. waterholes and stagnant'water there, the .chief grievance is a filthy spot in 'Harold- street, oi jthe Gowrie Estate'. .But .Harold street is in Newtown, not in Macdonadtown.

Cameron, and Roberts, quarter-backs, Haw kins (Captain), Hickey, Cook, Russell, Wool nough, Creer, Waugh, and Bloomfield, forwards in the field. Balmain team, losing the toss, had to kick againBt the wind which proved some assistance to the Wallaroo's. The Balmain worked hard to keep' the Wallaroo's back but could not prevent Bayliss getting a first try for their opponeuts, which did not result , in a score. The Wallaroo's territory was then' placed in jeopardy and it wa9 some little time before they could get the sphere back to the centre, where some good play on both sides prevailed. Eventually, however, the Wallaroo's prevailed, and a touch got by Logan resulted in a goal by Osborne. A third try was soon after gained^b...

DREAM PICTURE OF RITCHER. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 2 August 1884

DREAM PICTURE OF RITCHER., God called up from dreams a man into the vestibule' of heaven, saying— ' Come thou hither, and 'see the glory of. Sly house.' And to the servants that stood around His throne He said, ' Tal him. and undress 'him 'from his robes 01 ?flesh ; cleanse his flesh, cleanse his vision, and. put a new. breath into his nostrils ; arm him with sail broad wings for flight. Only touch not with any change his heart — the heart that weeps and trembles.'. . ' It was done, and, with, a-mighty angel for his guide, the man stood ready for bis infinite voyage, and from the terraces of heaven, without sound or farewell, at once they wheeled away into endless space. Sometimes, with the solemn flight of angel-wings they fled through zalianas of darkness, through wildernesses of death that divided the worlds of life ; . sometimes they swept over fron tiers that woro quickening under pro phetic motions towards life not yet real ized. Then, from a distance that is only counted in h...

The Ladies' Column. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 2 August 1884

Th0 Ladies' Column. A Yoono Wife's Duties. — Perhaps there -is -nothing', more important to a young wife or more calculated to make home happy than a proper knowledge of her duties and a due regard for house hold expenditure; yet many a' young girl entering npon life is wholly un qualified for, her duties, and has to pick up, as it were, her knowledge, instead of exercising it. A thorough Knowledge, therefore, of domestic economy is an important part bf.,the acquirements of a yonng girl, and as much a moral obliga tion on her- part as it is on that of a man to have that professional information and tact which enables him to provide for the wants of a wife and family. To make Apple Fritters. — Take one pint of milk, three eggs, 'salt just to taste, and as niucK flour as will makse batter. Beat the yolks and whites separately; add- the yolks 'to the milk,' stir in the whites with as much flour-as will make a batter, have ready some tender' apples, peel them, ? cut'' them in slices rou...
