IS CREMATION ESSENTIAL? [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 28 September 1898
IS CRSMATIGIvT ES SENTIAL? . The prompt action talcon' by the Government in regard to tho sale of diseased meat ; tho strict obser i unco of tlio Dairies Supervision Act ; aud tlio manuor in which slaughter bouses are at present aupervisoci, make us cogitate on tho laot that although the peoplo are careful as to their well-being regarding unwhole some and adulterated food, they give no thought to what will absolutely become 'a necessity in the future — tho burning of the dead. The great body of pjo/.le, wo know, cling lovingly to tho shibboleths ar.d myths of child hood ; they -ibbor tho very thought of burning oil that is loft mortal o£ a dear friend, simply because the dis posal of the dead by burial has been the established custom for years and ' custom is the lord of all mankind.'

Now, Mr Ed:tor, 1 might inform ' Civis' that I had taken the trouble (and prior to iny writing my first letter to you) of inspecting both sites. There is no absurdity at all in my remarks respecting ' the fleecing'' of the ratepayers, and also steefc having to travel through Sheridan street, as every right-thinking j.orson will agree, and which the iollowin' will show. a It was proposed by the Government (and perhaps 'Civis' was au aro of the fact) to erect a nqj^Jwidf, on the present site o£ LeajMv4^ dge, but which would he abotfTO feet higher than the level of the old one, and which would render the ascent of that part of Byron Street f which was found faul...
BEET GROWING IN GUNDAGAI DISTRICT. IS IT PROFITABLE ? [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 28 September 1898
BEET GROWING - ? -*- ? IN GUNDAGAI DISTRICT. IS IT PROFITABLE ? ? Some few issues buck a query vas asked us by a subscriber as to whether wo thought best growing in this dis trict would prove profitable, aud we then; promised to deal with the matter later on. It ia somewhat risky for us to espiale on such a subject when we have not been here 'sufficiently long enough yetT to note arid observe the climatic changes to which' the place is addicted, .and which vary so much withitt'w very small radius. In farm ing,' no matter what' crop is gone in for, the man working thegtound wants to seture the best results nt the least cost, and the condition of tho soil at the time of. planting, and the season passed through, have to be considered. An experienced farmer says that the more he does in the fanning line, the more convinced is he that the greater part of work on a farm cannot be done by any set rules. Thus ii is with beet. Although it has been looked unon a-i a cold-climate plant — in wh...
A BIG TOOTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 28 September 1898
A BIG TOOTH. ' I want yer to take out this tooth of mine/' said an TJlsterraau to a deniiat. The man sat down, and in a short time the dentist had his instrument applied to the offending tooth. But every time he was about to pull it the patient shut his mouth. The dentist whispered to his assistant to get a pin and go quietly behind the chair, and dash the pin right into the calf of the man's leg. Uttering a yell of pain, the man opened his mouth wide. Tak ing advantage of the opportunity, the dentist gave one pull and out flew '.ho tooth. After the pain had eomowhat abeirfd, tue man, not in the least suppcotii'g' the trick, said, rubbing tbe calf of his leg. ' Lor', biit that tooth of mine had a tremendous loner root.'1
