PINS. Cum grano salis. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 22 October 1881
PINS. Cum grano salis. As regards the liquor question, there is no doubt it is still a vexed one ; and it will take no end of " Licensing Bills" to settle it. Some go in for beer, others for wine ; some for quantity, others for quality, and there's no &nbsp; pleasing everybody. This is the way my friend "Peaping Tom" of the --- well, a very decent little paper down south-puts it : ---" Hurrah for the proprietor of Tatts. ; he has lowered the price of a small beer to 3d., but, as stated in the advertisement, if a fellow has to bring his own glass it will be rather, awkward, and perhaps cause disputes as to the definition of what is a small glass. For myself I like nothing but ' long sleevers,' though unfortunately some of the publicans have a knack of holding the glass about a yard from the tap, thereby causing nearly two inches of froth in the widest part of the glass, which is a very unwelcome sight to a lover of a glass of good beer, like myself. A ' long sleever' is suppo...

TUE C'UMHEKI.AM» Mnuvnv sports at Parramatta were a decided success; in fact, seldom has there been seen in the historic borough a better turn out.

PINS. Cum grano salis. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 29 October 1881
FINS. Cum grano salts. AT length, some half-a^dózén teetotallers, backed up by a strong posse of the friends of the publican, have decided that the poor man shall not have a glass of Colonial wine for threepence * or a bottle of the same fluid for one arid sixpence, unless he goes to the public house for it. t fail ti see that this extreme movement is aiding the cause of either total abstinence, or temperance. The poor man must now go and purchase a bucketful at wine cellars, or growers, or else drop into a public-house» and pay double the value for it -besides running the risk of being tempted to drink stronger and more injurious stuff. Had the bottle licenses been disposed of first, Mr. Jacob, probably» would have hesitated before he moved his amendment with regard to wine licenses. The worst part of the business was, the Premier's miserable defence, and cowardly surrender, of the bottle licenses. No consideration was shown for the wine industry, or the improved m irais or physiqu...
THE Hawkesbury Chronicle. AND FARMERS' ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1881. BREAKERS AHEAD. Mr. MACARTHURS LETTER UNDER REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 29 October 1881
THE AND FARMERS' ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1SSÍ. BREAKERS AHEAD. Mr. MACARTHURS LETTER UNDER REVIEW. I HAVE perused the letter of Mr. Geo. F. Macarthur under the above heading, in your valuable issue of 22nd inst. The question put, What is to be the ultimate outcome of our present system of education ? is pregnant with importance, and the issue, though requiring the spirit of prophecy to determine, is or is not identified with the welfare of the country. Our Public and Denominational schools being made the postutate to the questions "What then, are they? What do Uley indicate ?" The "results" of working out these questions practically cannot be measured by seizing abstract cases and applying these, as illustrative of the opera- tions of general principles. While many are pepared to admit that there is,much truth and force in Mr. Macarthur's pictorial paragraph or "stubborn monitors," few I opiue' will be found t,> agree with the immature assertion '* That very few pupils wh...
FARM AND GARDEN. LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Chronicle and Farmers Advocate — 29 October 1881
FARM ANO GARDEN. LUCERNE. It might airaos' be considered surplusage in a district like this, to write ever so little on this estimable forage plant, seeing how long and how extensively it has been cultivated. Still, it may be that every one does not know as much as they ought with regard to its cultivation, and its many uses ; and for their benefit we shall quote from an English agri- cultural work, and may be a few of those who have grown lucerne all their lives may also gain a wrinkle. # Lucerne ( medicago sativa ).--This valuable plant is one-ot the most useful of our forage plants for soils of a dry, sandy, or chalky nature, sheep downs and hill-sides; it Wi.l also succeed on good loams, but should not be so» n on clay soils unless they are well chalked. It is a certain green crop at ali seasons ot the year, and we do not hesitate to si\ that no f inn (unless the land is very heav \ ) should be without luceme. It grows veiv quickly, produces several cuttings during the year, 1 i...
