Tragedy in West Australia. SHOT WITH A WINCHESTER. PERTH, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 2 March 1894

Tragedy in West Aus-| tralia. i SHOT WITH A WIN CHESTER. Perth, Tuesday. A terrible shooting tragedy is reported from a place, called Cabulling, near Plantagenet. About 1JL o'clock on Friday night a man named John Fitz gerald, was lying in his tent when he was considerably dis turbed' by a row going on be tween' a half-caste and his wife. He called out. to the half-caste to stop beating his wife, but the row continued, and Fitz gerald left his tent to quell the noise. The half-caste went into the house of a man named MeKenzie and brought out a Winchester rifle, with which he struck at Fitzgerald, knock ing him down. . Tho latter picked up a stick and told the half-caste and his wife -that if they did not know how, to keep quiet he would teach, them by giving them tho stick about their heads. ? The half-caste is alleged to have then raised the rifle to his shoulder, and, pull ing the trigger, sent -a bullet into Fitzgerald's groin,- . inflict-, ing a: fearful wound. Fitz gerald writh...

Blight in the Maize. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 2 March 1894

Blight in the Maize. We regret to learn that the blight is very general in the late maize crop, in various parts of thiB district,- and that the yield is likely to be materially aflected by it. When itfirBt appeared on this river, was during a three years' drought, and it was then attributed by many persons to tbat. Then Mr M'Kay, of the Technological College, stated that he thought it -was caused by the scalding of tho leaves by the sun's rays after rain,- or the con tinuous cropping of the ground with ''--??ma.thiog. AB to' the scalding; *'?' experienced similar weather bas ii^„ in former years, when there' was no sign of blight. This season has been a very wet one, so that it is beyond doubt the blight cannot be caused by want of moisture in the land. And as for the continuous cropping, which would now appear to be the most likely cause of the blight, wo are informed that Mr W.N. Lee, of Okley Island, has a splendid patch of maize, on some land not planted before, which is suf fe...

Silk Growing. A PROFITABLE INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 6 March 1894

. - Silk Growing. A PROFITABLE. IN-' ,DUSTRY. ' ? , 'As silk culture is being tried just nowat B.ooral,near Stroud, and in other parts of the colony, and it is stated that it would pay in Now South Wales,' the following extracts - from t h e j Agricultur'al ' Gaz f,t t e for February will-no - doubt prove | . interesting to our readers: ? An 'ounce of eggs' (known tech n i c a 1 1 y as- 'gerino' or 'seed') means from about 38, 000 (perhaps; fewer) or, .40,000 * to about' 52,000 or 54,000 eggs, according to 'breed, race, and 'quality, ' 40,000 being usually ? regarded as 1 one ounce. Two ounces of eggs, say ' about 80,000, is by all ex perience fully enough for any one: rearing, in- any v one . place, at one time, and such -a rearing ? should only be attempted by a competent rearer,- where there ' is abundance of leaf ready ; grown 'and close at hand, to begathered as needed. - A plantation should be from 5 upwards to about 20 -acres or more, 'and .till 'of one kind of mulberry ; nin...

Passing Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 6 March 1894

Passing Notes. The difficulty found by British capi talists in placing money at investment in safe 'and profitable channels, illus trated by a well known London firm of financiers offering to take up at net par, the whole of the half million loan which the Melbourne Metropolitan Board of Works is proposing to offer locally. No doubt it would be better for 'the Melbourne Board to take this money than to scoop up this half a million in Australia. Sucli a course would to some extent withdraw money from ordinary business channels where it is just now urgently needed. The objection to Government and munici pal loans raised in England chiefly lies in the fact that the money has been badly spent. Money at 4 per ceht. should always be able to find remu nerative employinent in a new country like Australia ; but the trouble has been that the money'has too often been squandered on railways and other un dertakings that were little bettej than political jobs. There haB ' been too much reckless '...

Gambing. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 6 March 1894

G-ambing. A writer in the Daily Tele graph, ? referring to tho late ' tote ' prosecutions, says : — But the bookmaker doesn't work at anytih'ng, as a rule, save odd consistent effort to lip-hten the public pocket. Tlie police know this as well as the „ judges k n o w it, as well as everybody in the country who isn't deaf, dumb, blind, and idiotic knows it. There are professional bookmakers in Sydney who have never, in the memory of the oldest inhabi . tant, done a tap at any useful thine, who have depended en tirely upon the game of race course betting for a livelihood, and who have found it- a very good dependence, and one not liable to police interference. The thin technicality behind which tho blatant metallician . . shelters himself appears to be . . that a racecourse is not ' a place ' within the meaning ot the Act. Betting is unlawful .when cffrricd on in a house, shop, room, or place. This is babble for infants. The per son whose case was under dis cussion was punished for se...
