Indeed, the old things are the best. Does not Kendall somewhere say :— 'But the old things are tho dearest, and the old loves wen- the best.' Old sayings, to ., are oftenest the wisest. Believing, therefore, that such is the case, we coutcut ourselves with 'prop'ginj;' a Christmas sentiments in words which, while they muy be hackneyed, nevertheless mean a lot— with these words : — ' With gentle deeds mid kindly thoughts And loving words withal 'Welcome the Mkimiv Ciiimxtmas in Aml hem- a lmilhr.,-'* mil !

The Christmas Vacation. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 22 December 1888

The Christmas Vacation. The various schools in the town are now quiet for a season, and tho teacher, who needs the holiday most of all, will now have a few weeks respite from the arduous, thankless, w rrying task of trying to implant in the minds of our y uth the seeds of knowledge that will some day burst forth in all its splendour. Tlie boy who now makes a noise in school and has to be ' stood jut,' will perhaps in years to come blossom forth as a Sir Henry Parkos, and when ho speaks his tender words, may fall like flakes of feathered snow, melting as thoy fall —'thoughts that breathe and words that burn.' The boy who now sots his teacher's teeth on edge as he scrapes and grite his pencil over his sbi'to may yet burst forth as a Gustavo Dore, or some such other genius. Who knows? Who knows? Doro no doubt was just as troublesome as our boy of the present : and we are prepared to say that Sir H . was. The boy who plays truant from school may yet be come the greatest naturalist of th...

J.'rom the evidence adduced it appears that the deceased was playing in the grounds with 22 other children, inmates of the Home.

PARRAMATTA SOUTH PUBLIC SCHOOL [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 22 December 1888

PARRAMATTA SOUTH PUBLIC SCHOOL let loose some 800 — only fancy, '800 happy boys (and girls) caine bounding out of school.' That seems to S'mnd one better than the school where Mr. Aram — Eugene Aram — used to 'teach the young idea how to shoot.' There was no formal ceremony about it, in conse quence of most of the teachers and pupil teacheis having to present themselves before Messrs. M'Intyre and Hookins, the District Inspectors. In fact, the routine arrangements have been rather upset, something like 56 teachers from Parramatta and district being at present under examination. The vacation extends over a period of three weeks, and we wish Mr. J. W. E. Raillie and his staff a ' quiet tinio ' during that period.

Costollo. His delineation of tho character wan meritorious, but being of a more robust nature, ho was not, so physically suited to the character as Mr. Burford. Tl-e other characters wore all played well, and Mr. Airey, as the reckless, good natural Mylcs, was excellent. So was Mr. £.
