HISTORY OF RENMARK. [Newspaper Article] — Renmark Pioneer — 4 January 1896

A HISTORY OF RENMARK To write a true history of any country is acknowledged. to be im possible without treading, 'on..some body's toes, and this must be much more the case with a small settlement. However. we shall try and achieve the impossible in this matter, and " a plain unvarnished tale deliver" of some of the principal events which have occurred since Renmark was     first established.   On two occasions in the earlier half of the year 1887, Messrs. George and W. B.. Chaffey were brought to the Murray in a Government steamer, and vehicles were awaiting them at various points on the river, in which they were driven all over the district to select a site for an irrigation settle ment. The vicinity of Lake Bonney was considered, hut the greater extent of good irrigable land at the present position, decided the promoters in favor of the latter. The site for a town was a difficult matter to choose.   Spring Cart Gully had the adva...

WHICH IS THE BEST TOMATO? [Newspaper Article] — Renmark Pioneer — 11 January 1896

WHICH IS THE BEST TOMATO ? The old rough red tomato, a write)1 in "CottageGai'deiiing,"believe& to be su perior, both in quality and quantity, to most of the 'now existing sorts. He argues—" In tomatoes us in potatoes, we have paid far too heavy a penalty for a smooth skin and even face. Doubtless the abolition of eyes as well as of wrinkles had its merits and was worth something. J411L when quality and productiveness dis appear in tiie race after a smooth face and u pel feci, form, then assuredly the game is not worth the caudle. Even so called mild or sweet tomatoes are by no means the host lor cooking purposes, j or for consuming raw by those who have acquired tlie umnii.u taste. I'ossiblv, too, those who suffer from indigestion, and have turned Jo the tomato for relief, derive more benefit from the rougher and more acid varieties than from the softer, milder. and so called sweeter sorts. There is also less rind on the rough red than on most of the smoother ;uid more shap...

THE OAK OF GEISMAR. [Newspaper Article] — Renmark Pioneer — 11 January 1896

THE OAK OF GEISMAR. • £Frqm "Scribser's. Magazine."] Through the wide forest which rolled over the hills of Central Grer many, nearly twelve centuries ago, on the day before Christmas, a little com pany of pilgrims was journeying north - 'Ward. At the head of the band was a man about foriv years of age, fair and slight, with eyes as blue as the sky and full of kindness, vet flashing with the fire of a will that knew no weakness and no fear. His thick garments of fur were covered with a coarse, black robe, girt high above his waist, so that it might not hinder his quick stride ; and in his right hand he carried a strong staff, fashioned at the upper end into the semblance of a cross. It was Winfred of England, who had left his fair patrimony and noble estate in Wessex to bring the. gospel to bis hea then kinsmen in the woodland of Thu xingisv and Hesse. Close beside him, arid keeping step with him like an inseparable compa nion, was the young Prince Gregor, whose heart Winfred had wo...

CULTIVATION OF THE KUMARA OR SWEET POTATO. [Newspaper Article] — Renmark Pioneer — 11 January 1896

At four feet apart scoop holes the depth of the potatoes, I place in the potato, then cover tip one- j fourth with soil, and fill up to the sur face with manure.

LYBUP. [Fbom our Correspondent.] •Tan. 2nd.. THe Uhristmas sports held at this settlement this season were a great success.. The weather was very favourable and events brought forth some good contests. On Christmas day a Christmas tree was erected from which every child on the place from birth up to twelve year3 of age received a small "prize. We were generously honored with vice regal gifts, as well as from many of our numerous friends and well-wishers, so that the prizes and trophies were very good. The aim of the sports colnmittee was to arrange a programme so as to afford as much fun and amusement for all the settlers, onlookers as well as performers. All of both sexeB had a chance to win something, either by athletics or aquatics or by art utiicm. Refreshments were provided for the two days carnival, and on the last evening an entertainment was given at which the prizes were distributed. There were a number of visitors from the neighborhood and all appeared to have a healthy ha...

Chaffey Brothers, Limited, ami the Bentnark Irrigation Trust for a con tinuance of the pumping and distribu tion of water at that settlement, pend ing the decision of the Liquidators as to carrying on the contract which was entered into by the Company for a period of fifteen years, Mr. Culross made the application on behalf of the Liquidators. Mr. T. Pope appeared for the petitioning creditors, and Mr. T. E. Bright for the Irrigation Trust. In accordance with the arrangement referred to the pumping operations have been begun. This fact will be welcome news to the orchardi.sts on the settlement, as it is of the greatest importance to continue the distribution of water during the dry season. If the Liquidators should ultimately de cide not to complete the contract, it will be for the Trust to make othe...

fin bitter. SATURDAY, JAN.UARY 11, 1896. THE PRESENT POSITION. As matters in connec tion with the liquidation of Messrs. Chaffey Brothers, Limited, are not likely to be arranged for at least some weeks to come, it . . behoves Renmark people to see what pan be done in the meantime for the present and future welfare of the settlement.

CORRESPONDENCE, CRICKET. THE RECENT LOCAl MATCH. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Renmark Pioneer — 11 January 1896

CORRESPONDENCE, CRICKET. THE RECENT LOCal MATCH. to this editor. Sir.—Without wishing to detract from the merits of the victory of the Australian Eleven in the second of the local test matches, I would beg to point out what I consider to be the faulty composition of the English team. Considering that the first match resulted in a win for the Englishmen, albeit by the email majority of ten runs, it would surely have been advisable to include in the second team as many as acquitted themselves fairly well in the first match, in preference to uome new arrivals who have had little or no experience of the game on an Australian wicket, and who, whatever their reputed performances iu other departments of sport iu the Old Country, have not yet given any proof of their capabilities as cricketers in Renmark. Taking an intense personal interest in the game I feel that no pains should be spared to secure ihe absolutely best re presentative eleven on both sides in this important contest, and I th...
