HORNSBY. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 1 December 1888
I-IOE.NSBY. Never before to my knowledge has the fruit age of this diYrict undergone such a hard time, and the outlook- boforo the orchardists is very gloomy indeed. Tho orange crop in some places has boon almost a failure, whilst iu others expenses have just bcoa met.

A hope is still hold ouUhat if rain doe-i come shortly, a good second crop may bo looked for. The old trees seem to suffer most from tho drought. Some can bo soon quite lealless, wiulst some of tho young trees in the same orchards look quite fresh and green. In fact, if you go from an old orchard to a young one, you would think you were iu uuother climate. In all places I havo been, the orchards have been well cared for (not a blaie of grass or weed to bo seen), andmauuvod well. Lemons li'ivo stood tho trial somewhat better, for in many places lemons c...

Tl-o enter tainment on this occasion took the form of a Horvice of Soug, entitled ' The Pilgrims Progress,' and was beautifully rendered by toered their services for the benefit of tho Temperance cause. The manner in which they acquitted themselves reflects very great credit on themselves, and on their conductor, Bro. Sellars, for the way ho had trained them. Mr. Hunt, of Hyde, performed the duties of preacher. Rev. Mclntosh occupied the chair, and delivered a very earnest address in support, of Good Tcmplary, claiming for it thp support of tho people. The audience was highly de lighted with tho entertainment, and after the votes of thanks were accorded and responded to and the children had partaken of light refresh ments, all dispersed after a very pleasant evening had been spent.

Local Topics. The progressionists of Dimdas are so hope ful of gutting tho incorporation they yearn for, that they have determine:! that it shall bo a three- ward municipality.! AVo aro thoroughly with the progressionists nod wisli them .their heart's desire, bnt, at tho same time, wo would remind them that there is wisdom in the old adage that recommend!) the catching of the hare as a preliminary to cooking it.

Inasmuch as sinco tlio last monthly meeting of tlio P.G.TJ. sovern.1 ovonts very directly affecting tlio poinologieal interests of tho Colony havo transpired, it is excessively' probable that tho pro ceedings of tho meeting to bo hold this afternoon will bo of inoro than ordinary importance. During tho past month, it has been placed beyond all doubt that -he Codlin Moth has managed to ac climatise itself as adenizen of New South Wales. 'Whether its advent could have been successfully guarded against by vigorous preventative 'Government' action, it is now useless to onquiro. Still, justbecauso tho arrival of this ox tremeiy noxious inrect may bo attributed laissez-faire inaction in tho past, logisla tivo and othorwiso, thero is allthomoro reason why that foolish policy should no longer bo pursued — in tho very pro sonco of tho nuisanco— a nuisanco that is quite capable of speedily developing into a torriblo ...

ERMINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 1 December 1888
KRMINGTON. Water is very scarce indeed about Erming tou. Most people are drawing all they use from Eastwood. Mrs Darvall'is good enough to let anyone get it out of the hole where Messrs. Amos. Bros, made the bricks for the Northern Railway. I am spending hundreds of pounds making dams, etc., for irrigation purposes. If I had my orchard and nursery llligiucu. niift Mjiison ib wuuiu miijiu it uiiioJ-encu of .C1000 to my fruit anil plants. I have no doubt that a proper system of irrigation would make this district 1U0 per cent, richer. Tho summer fruit will be very small indeed in all high orchards, and if wo do not get a good soaking rain within the next month there will bo scarcely any fruit worth sending to market. Tho quantity of fruit is as groat as usual, or even greater, but it is not half tho usual size at this time of the year. I should say the loss in fruit in our district through the drought ?will bo £5000 at least. I have altogether about GO acres of summer fruits and grape...

AUBURN. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 1 December 1888
AUBUllN. This is a manufacturing' and residential dis trict, and as the supply of water at tho prin cipal working shops is ample, the unpleasant effects of the scarcity of rain make themselves most felt in the domestic circle. The two largo engineering works have capacious dams, and having been pretty well closed for' months owing to our system of encouragement of im norts. they have used but little water of late. The want of employment has caused many families to move elsnwhoro, leaving an un usually largo proportion of empty dwellings. I'roni the tanks, in some coses well filled, of unoccupied houses, our residents havo been able to largely supplement tho ordinary water sup ply. There are but fow orchards and kitchen gardens in tho locality, and thoy arc suffering severely through the drought, which is causing the small quantity of fruit left after the havoc made by fierce winds, to fall from tho trees. Tho Chinamen gardeners, howevor, seem to inako things ' gee,' owing to the cho...
