V / Select Poetry. IF IT WERE TfiUE. If it vrere really true that you arc living — You whom my soul has always loved the best — Could you not come to me once more, forsivinp, And lay your head ug.iin upon my breast ? If*I had known how sadly I should grieve you— ; fiiji J hnd only known it was the Inst — There's nothing in the world had made me leave you ; And now, dear bonrt, the tender dream is past. Can yon not see how 1 have missed you, dearest; How I regret I ever gave you pain ; How even then I held you first and nearest ? O lore, if yoo could only come again. I would be kinder to you ; I was fretful ; Life had so much that was too hard to bear ; I did not understand how — self-forpetfol — Your love had tightened every pain or care. We grow too sure of those who never give ns A single anxious thought — they are our own ; I did not dream that death would dare to rob me, Until I found my priceless treasure gone. As we so oft have watched the changing skies ; I wonder if this ten...
STEADY, PARRAMATTA! [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 20 July 1895
STEADY, PARBAMATTA! The great fight between tho two new political parties in Parramatta has at last begun. The New is face to face with the Old. As to which will go under, there can hardly be at this part of the electioneering term, a doubt. The people have the right to chose (free from dictation, free from all bull dozing) : out tnere is nuie aouot tnat their decision will be in tavour of gallant, hardhitting, democratic Youth : in favour of the political rights of the voters of New South Wales, of the men who object to be spurned into misery and darkness again by Monopoly, John Danes, and Intrigue, the men who ask undiluted political liberty for themselves and their Bons and their sons' sons to all generations, the men who desire — and will have — that the earth's opportunities shall be free to all who deserve such blessings, and the country's taxation shall be distributed equitably. To win the battle, the local men who believe in democracy and liberty, and a brave clean politicia...

AHCHDEADON GUNTHER expressed two larger ideas at the last Committee meeting of tbe Pomunfttta Hospital on Wednesday. One was that our district folk were beginning to forget, evidently, the good work done by the institution. He thought the number of cases treated, and the relief given could hardly be known ; otherwise, the monetary support received by the Hospital would be very much larger than it is at present. These views should be thought over by all persons who desire to do their duty by their fellows. THE second suggestion made by the rev. gentleman had reference to the appoint ment of a District Nurse— a lady to go round and minister to the Sick-Toom needs of our aged poor, and others similarly placed. There is much to be said for the proposal ; but the grave question in connection with it is, I whether or not it would lead to an injury to i the financial resources of the Hospital itself. I Some such scheme, carried out, by self j denying women as a distinct effort, might be I ...
