Dr. Parker on Professor Huxley. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 17 February 1894

Dr. Parker on Professor Huxley. The Idler's 'Lion' this month ia Dr. Joseph Parker, who wa3 questioned by Mr. Blafchwayt as to the Freethought of the day. In the course of his reply, the Doctor made some reference to the agnosticism o£ the late Professor Tyndall and of Professor Huxley : — The scientists, of all men (he said), I should have expected to be most religious. Ho lives in a universe of wonders : he confesses himself that he is always coming to the end of his tether. Professor Tyndall acknowledges, poetically and justly enough, that the piano, with its lilting soprano and its growling bass, does not include the whole mystery of sound. He says that on the right and left of the instrument there may be an infinity of music. How, therefore, a scientist can bo dogmatic in denial is a greater mystery to me than how ft Christian can be dogmatic in affirmation : there is a cant of denial and non-dogmatism jii3t as much as of bigotry aud dogmatism. It is fashionable among those who...

A Merchant's Courtship. The reputation of Brietolians for ncuteness is proverbial, and the merchants of the ancient Western Metropolis are eecond to none in exercising tbe art of accumulating wealth.

Ay ! what changes have come over tbe old city .since then ! Amongst those who soufiht to recruit the inner man were two gentlemen of a swarthy complexion, well-favoured, and having about them the fatigued and finished air of men who bad lived in many cities. They were in tbe best of humours, aud seemed to be vastly amused at something which had crossed their . path. The counten...

COONABARABRAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 17 February 1894

CODNABARABRAN. During the week we had something like two inches of rain, which will have a beneficial effect upon vegetation. Stock as a rule are in good con dition. Fruit is plentiful and of first-class quality. The different vineyards and orchards have yielded prolific crop3. The two mills are working. The sound of the whistles is cheerful music. Coonabarabran buyers I are, I think I am safe in saying, giving the highest price in New South Wales if not in the colony for wheat, prices ranging from 3s 9d to 4s. Mr. Slack, of ilurringundy, on the Talbragar, sold 1200 bushels here this week. Mr. Slack resides within thirty miles of Wellington or Dubbo, and something approaching 80 miles from Coonabarabran. The quality of the flour turned out in the mills here, both roller with all the latest improvements, is a first-class article, and finds a ready sale through out the district. The corn crops are giving promise of bountiful yields. At a late meeting of the Hospital Committee, the aff...

DISTRICT NEWS. I [Fitojr oue Correspondents.] MERRIWA. We are pleased to report; a very desirable change in the weather. The intense heat of last week culminated on Friday last in a steady downpour of welcome rain, and on Sunday we received a further favour, which was preceded by a thunderstorm. The country around has already assumed a more cheerful appearance. The cricket match on Saturday last bewecn Merriwa and Bunnan proved a very easy victory for Bunnan. Our boys appear to have been over mnfco.hed unon this occasion. The local bench has recommended a new polling place for this electorate afc Coolie Cottage, about ten miles north of Meriiwa. This has been deemed necessary through the polling place at Bunnan having been swallowed up in the Robertson elec torate and lost to us for over.
