?? LEFT IN THE HANDS OF THE MAYOR.' In municipalities unknown to fame. On the banks of tho far-off Paroo, They've but one panacea for all ills that arise, One remedy, trusted and true. Be it great things or small— be it question of State, Or only ' a local affair,' Tho Council unfailingly lays down the rule— ' It be left in tho hand/ of Ihr Mn.vnr .' There are always three ways of deciding a Brother Gladstone is siiid to have shown ; You nniy take it up tint*, or may take it up OrniAy leave the whole blamed thingalooe; Bui to these add a fourth, and a better mode still.

Death of Ex-Alderman Sparks. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 6 July 1895
Death of Ex-Alderman Sparks. We regret to be called upon to report in this issue the decease of Mr. Jordan Sparks— ex- alderman of Parramatta, and one of the best known of our townsmen — at the comparatively early age of 46 years. Mr. Bparks's health had been indifferent for some weeks, but his illness, which developed into rheumatic fever, with heart and lung complications, did not assume a seriouB phase till about the end of the past month. By Saturday last his con dition was so extremely unsatisfactory that three other medical gentlemen were called in — in consultation with Dr. Kearney, under whose care the patient was. It was, however, evident that there was scarcely any hope of coping successfully with the dangerous malady, and tlip enri nunp tini-lp nn Wninisiu1a.v mnm ing. The news was received with much con cern in the town, with which Mr. Sparks has been more or less identified for about 40 years, and in which he was universally respected. Inheriting, as he did, both his un...

R.C. Social, Auburn. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 13 July 1895
B.C. Sooial, Auburn. The annual Roman Catholic social in the Cumberland Hall on Monday last was fairly successful. The attendance was not so large as on the occasion of last year's meeting; this being mainly due perhaps to the higher charge for admission. The hall was, however, comfortably filled — indeed a greater attendance would have tended to interfere with the dancers comfort. Amongst prominent visitors were the Mayor and Mayoress of Aubum, and Father T. O'Beilly (Bookwood). An art union drawing preceded the opening of the ball — the prizes being drawn by his Worship the Mayor. The fancy dresses ana ball costumes were ex tremely attractive. Atmidnight, supper was served, this important department being nnder the efficient care of Mes dames Byan and McHngh, and a corps of other ladies — including Mes dames Legendre, Murphy, Greatrix, and Webster. Professor West was, as usual, an exoellent M.C., and Mr. Gannon worked well as Secretary. The party broke up about 6 a.m.
The Post Office. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 13 July 1895
The Post Office. The progressive town of Auburn has (as yet) not got beyond the prinutive stage as regards some of her public or quasi-public Institutions — particularly the post and telegraph office. The im portance of the township warrants the opening of a more pretentious struoture ? a building more in keeping with the development of the district and the present and future position of the Borough. Baton other grounds of a more practical character the present state of things is most undesirable. Tbe office is away from the centre of settlement and its position on a bray line of railway traffic is one fraught with daily danger, especially to child ren. On no station of equal importance in this distriot does snch a state of things obtain. The Oepartment has recognised , the force of the represent ations in the case of Granvule and Bookwood, where, as a matter of fact, the chief business-places - cluster round the roroeotive stations. The removal of tke Post Offige in eaoh of those c...

Selected Poetry. LONG AGO AND BY-AND-BYE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 13 July 1895
Selected Poetry. LONG AGO AND BY-AND-BYE. Long ngo, and by-and-bye ; How we linger o'er the theme ; Thought and fancy, hand in hand, 'Walking through the silent land, In a sort of tender dream. Recollections fill the mind. Shadowy visions catch the eye, Mysteries deep the spirit move, Things -we yearn to mow, and prove Of long ago, and by-and bye. Bound about ns lies the now, Minutes golden pass our way ; Life's trne gates are open wide, poise's beat on every side, Here and cow, and every day. Here and now, and every day Grander problems to ns bring; ifewwi to search, heights to climb, Deeds to do — that through all time Erhoe of our steps will ring. Sound of voice, and touch of hand. Thrill and throb of worm, true heart, ? Giving out the best it can. Preaching to its utmost span, N This is living's noblest part. — E. A. Smith.

THE GIPSY'S . . . . DAUGHTER. CHAPTER IL — Continued. 'Slapped her !' cried old Tom looking aghast. ? Yes. Of course I'm sorry I did it. It was not rfenlfti, but I couldn't help It. Why did she aggravate me and call me 'gipsy,' as if it was a disgrace? What if I am a gipsy ? I am proud of HI1 said Bose, whose wide learning had not embraced abstruse points in Eng lish grammar. ? But what does your Aunt Dolly say, Bome ?' 'Oh, she's cross, but what of that? I don't belong to her ; I belong to you, and I shall until I get a husband. How pretty it is here, father t What nice flowers you have.' She stood up and broke off a great bunch of eglantine. 'Ain't you glad to see me ? Don't you : think me handsome, father ?' Tom Reynolds sighed. His pipe had gone out, but the power of love in his : heart liad fallen into colder ashes than those of his pipe. He had loved, in xoiadleage, madly , passionately, a gipsy. He married her. Two years of a wild ~ fcenzy of Jove, and then he laid her nnder ...
