ELLALONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 18 January 1894
ELLALONG. The weather for the past few weeks has been very changeable. At times one would think we were going to have a good downpour of rain, but it has cleared off with no more than a few thunderstorms, greatly against the expectations of the farmers and PTftzierR. The maize crops are badly in need of a shower, but if we had rain shortly the yield would be an abundant one. The straw crop is out of season, and the wheat crop is a seanty one, as the staff of life does not yield a good return in this locality. Ab regards sport, the game called cricket is the most enjoyed by our village people. There are two respected clubs in this small, quiet township, which appeared to have enjoyed the scientific game during the late holidays. Our boys on last Saturday wended their way to Branxton to meet the Brauxton cricketers on their own wicket. Tre day was fine and hot during the morning, but in the afternoon a storm arose, and prevented the match being played to a finish. The result of tho ma...

Gentlemen,— Butter packed and graded for the week ending January I3fch, shows a slight increase as compared with the results of tho previous week. The number of boxes prepared for export was 19G4 first grade, 231 second, 26 third, total 2221, equal to 55J tons nett weight, being 1 J tons in excess of last week s results. Owing to the excessive heat during the past week the butter which came to hand was very soft, more especially the consignments arriving in the market on Saturday morning, in a condition more like oil than butter, and which had to be repacked and put into the freezing rooms, without delay in order that the butter should be kept sweet. With reference to second and third grade butters a quantity is being disposed of in the local market, consequently a Ies3er number is available for export.

ITEMS OF INTEREST. [ORIGINAL AND SELECTED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 18 January 1894
ITEMS OP INTEREST. [OniOINAL AND SKLECTED/l It was of a colonel (the brilliant if erratic Teddy Oakes) that people told the tale how, being at sea in a violent storm when hope was abandoned, and the passengers were bidden to pray, his nearest approach to orison was — ' Oh, Pilot, 'tis a fearful night !' It was a colonel who, according to fable, aeciarea cnac on a voyage round tho Uape his ship was spoken (thousands of miles from land) by a man in a tub who would not come on board tho ship, but took in a supply of biscuit and water, and was left in mid-ocean. It was a colonel from whom the wily snake escaped by entering a bamboo tail first, after the colonel had twice pulled it from that refuge by the tail. And, according to popular belief, a colonel told that story about the quail, which nearly resulted in his nrornnt discomfiture. For that colonel described a flight of quail that clouded the sky, and then, having settled, covered the parade ground in close-packed swarm ; and he tol...
ECHOES OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 18 January 1894
ECHOES OF SP0ET. Men who go a racing wore not much alivo to their own interests whilst the famous ' Sequuh' was in town, else they would have invested some of their surplus cash in his preparation which is said to be a well nigh marvellous remedy for stiffness. Not for themselves. Oh, no ! Just fancy a man arrived with a few bottles of the liniment, some money, a little information, and an opportunity for a private interview in the saddling paddock of a race day with some horses we well know ! A little mild excitement is prevalent in tho breasts of some provincial Victorian horsoowners, owing to the expressed determination of the com mittee of the Casterton Racing Club to publish the names of defaulting nominators in the local news paper. If the libel law does not step in and protect them that is about the only way the careless gentlemen can be reached, for they cannot be placed on the forfeit list, as the rules say that unless the entrance foe is paid at time of entry the latter is...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. CAPITAL PUNISHMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 18 January 1894
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. CAPITAL PUNISHMENT. Sib, — In reply to a letter signed 'Humanity dealing with capital punishment, he takes the Bible as his guide, but he fails to quote one passage in support of his contention. He surely must shut his eyes and grope in darkness when he fails to see where the Bible nlainlv lavs down the law, 6aying ' An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth,' and ' He that sheddeth man's blood his blood shall be shed also.' Now, Sir, I have an opinion that capital punish ment is in a great measure a deterrent ot crime, as the very thoughts of dying on the gallows at the hands of a common hangman causes many a stout heart to quail. ' Humanity ' s?ems to think that hanging a man is taking him in cold blood. Well, no doubt it is to a certain extent, but on the second thought of any- sensible man it is not in viewing the matter at in the light of reason. Now, to take the matter at a general starting point, does ' Humanity' think of the punishment the murderer inf...
STEWART'S BROOK. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 18 January 1894
STEWART'S BROOK. We are enjoying very fair weather at present. Considoring the time of year the heat is not intense. On Saturday last we were treated to a welcome thunderstorm with rain enough to freshen the gardens up. There is a vast difference in the appearance of the grass here and that of the pad docks a few miles lowor down. Our hottest days only last a very few hours. Cool nights and de licious crisp mornings are our general portion. This programme to a certain extent compensates for our tedious winter. The general health of the field has not been up to standard of late. A kind of English cholera has been very prevalent, parti cularly among the young members. Constable McCurley this morning arrested a man named Peter Martindale on suspicion of having stolen some nuggets of gold from the hut of Rode rick McDonald. When searched pieces of gold resembling those missing were found on him. The case will be heard in Scone. This is the second stealing case from here occurring within...
BLACKVILLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 18 January 1894
BLAGKVILLE. The Weather. — We have had some very trying weather this summer, so far. Some days have been regular scorchers, othera nice and mild. About Christmas and New Year the weather was terribly hot and dry. Since then I am pleased to say a pleasant change has taken place. On Friday, the 5th mst., a thunderstorm culminated and fell, amounting to 117 points. This welcome fall has done a great deal of good to the country in and about this part; it has revived vegetation to a great extent. Since the above rainfall we have had several other oneB. On Friday and Saturday, the 12th and 13th instant, nice thunderstorms fell here, amounting to 23 and 36 points respectively, at the usual hour in the morn ing.
