Bush Fires. [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 12 September 1895

Bush Fires. : The sight from the heights of Camden of a night is simply lamentable, yet beautiful to beheld; from every point of the compass can be seen hugh burning bush, impossible, except by rain, to be placed under control. The nights have been close, the sky without a cloud, and the whole horizon, — as it were a'qir^Le .jpucbing the., earth,-— was full of smoke from the raging element—fire . Terrible and destructive; biish fires have been raging in Werombi district this week, Unfortunately the runs of Mrs. Alfred Marden, Mrs. Rapley,- Mr, Devitt, Mr. Gibson, Mr. fiideoufc, and ©there - have suffered, most severely. The. extent of the, damage done by the destructive element is net yet known/ It is indeed .gratifying to note that,- almost every one, men and women and young folks alike, from Theresa Park tendered most willing and able help to stay the farther progress of the fires. Some 400 acres of grass besides fencing have been destroyed by fires on the Raby estate, Narellan. D...

Correspondence. A Land and Income Tax Unnecessary. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 12 September 1895

Correspondence. A Land and Income Tax Unnecessary. (To the Editor.) Sir,— Surely the strongest argument yet used against the imposition of these taxes is the statement of Mr, Reid himself on Tues day week lasb in his financial statement. He said,' with regard to the accounts of 1895-90, lion, members will find in the way's and means statement that the results of my estimates show a surplus of £181,000.' Further On he stated, te I do not conceal from the committee that there is no doubt that the expenditure for the year 1896-97, will be greater in all probability than the expenditure of this year. 1 quite look to that being the case, but then I have in my proposals dealing with that year allowed my self ft snm of £400,000 in addition to any surplus to meet emergencies of this kind,'' This is precisely the sum the Land Tax is expected to yield— £400,000 wrung from those whq are unfortunate enough to have to drag their living from the land; and merely for emergencies. ! Yoftrs faithful...

Lawh Tennis On Saturday afternoon last, a number of ladies and gentlemen from Campbelltown as well as in this district assembled in the Camden Union Lawn Tennis Ground to wit ness a friendly contest between Camden and Campbelltown.- The players from the latter town were particularly strong in every de ivartment of tennis, and asthev came in the 'bus ' Invincible' this was regarded as an ominous sign.- Notwithstanding this, the Camden representatives played an excellent game, and shortly before its conclusion were leading, and had a fair show for victory. The brilliant pflay of McKenzie of inter colonial fame just saved Cambpelltown from defeat and robbed Gfamden of victory. For Camdeny Morton and Farquhar played tit splendid game right out, but Bell and Maddox did not show up to form during i half, the time they played. Campbelltown men played a cool, calculating game throughout, and had a hard tussle for victory. An unpleasaint wind prevailed throughout the game, trying the skill a...

LOCAL NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 19 September 1895

LOCAL NOTES The most cheering news it is possible to convey to our readers this week is that in regard to the break-up of the drought. It would be premature to hope that any per manent break-up has taken place, because in most of the districts affected the amount, of rain has only been light. The rainfall has been general, and that fact, even if thtf rainfall nas been light, is very acceptable. It is calculated that, an average fall of an inch over the whole colony would mean to the producing interests a gain of more than one million sterling. Every natural pro duct in the colony, is more or less at the mercy of the rainfall. We trust it is not premature to hope that the bitterness of the drought, which has been modified by the general fall of rain over the colony,- will be followed by a still more generous advent of seasonable weather in the near future. It is. also a satisfactory feature to note that Mr Wraggeforecasts, -Electric disturbances; .cloudy and unsettled ; further refre...

Burragorang. [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 19 September 1895

Burragorang.. [from-otjb own corbespondbnt.] Seldom indeed in the history of this district have I had to report so unsatisfactory a state of affairs as is at present existing here. There is only the slightest spring, in the grassland things generally are looking very gloomily. If it were not for the river oaks we do not know how we should keep the cattler alive.' There is but little ploughing going on in the district and consequently very little, if any, of sowing of maize. In the Wollondilly river there are a great number of carcasses floating, about. Al together we are having no very pleasant time. Some of the farmers here have been ex perimenting with the cornstalk cutter, a large roller with knives in it that will roll down and cut up into foot lengths from 6 to 8 acres of cornstalks daily. That very pro gressive and energetic young farmer, Mr. Burgess, is responsible for its introduction up this side.

The singing of Mrs Cook Miss Goldsmith and Mrs J. 0. Moore was much admired. , Whilst the instrumental efforts of the Misses Doust and Mr. Mellier received a large share of well deserved applause.

"KISS ME, JACK, AND LET ME GO." [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 19 September 1895

'KISS ME, JACK, AND LET ME GO.' Once, long ago, I was witness to a duel in Cali- i fornia. The two men had been bosom friends, but j had quarelled about; (of course) a woman. Splendid I fellows both-^ young, brainy, and ambitious. As they stood in a clear space among the pine trees near Sacramento, pale as lillies, steady as rocks, weapons in hand waiting for the word, the rising sun shining athwart the line of vision, they pre sented a picture too often seen m 1856. The pistols cracked almost simultaneously. One man stood erecti, evidently untouched; the other fell upon his back and., lay straight and still. Seconds, surgeons, and spectators rushed to his side. He was 'all there,'' , mind,. as well as body. 'No, don't disturb nie,' he said coolly to the doctor, 'I'm shot fatally and shall die in five minutes. Call Jack and be quiok.' Pistol still in hand, his antagonist came and bent over his erstwhile chum. The excitement among the crowd was intense ; the dying man alone was ealin...

APLONKEPHALIA. THAT COW. [Newspaper Article] — Camden News — 19 September 1895

APLONKBPEaLU. THAT COW. [By Rgylanob.] It was a very dry season, and every dairy man knows what a dry season means; only the very best cows must be kept, or, failure will follow, for feed is then ruling at high prices, and a poor milker is always able to consume much more value in feed than she will return in milk. It was with the above knowledge circliag through my mind that I marvelled greatly to see 'that cow' come into the dairy herd, ©till, there ishe was, a newly made purchase of nay master (J. S — s). It was morning, and the cows were hardly yarded when J.S. drove up 'that cow' and quickly followed, and then com menced a critical examination of all her good points. The survey completed, J.S. was 'able to find time and great pleasure by speaking ; we, of course, listened attentively and heard ' by jingqesJihat will be a great milker when she^calves. BeTtfiu'e-and feed her well Fred. Do you know I've had my' eye on that cow for nearly two years.' Fred answered, 'I'll watch her ...
