Neath Colliery on Fire. Tin; uuyys.l!i:il. Xoatb Colliery was on fire was .lira;, received in a mild manner. The -L-.iousness of the oc currence was i!uti realised at first, hut now that the best part of a week has gone by the consequences are only too plainly apparent. The first signs of the firo wero noticeable on Sun day morning. When the fan was started a siuoke-likc cloud was ob served ;ifc the shaft, mouth. This led to investigation, which showed a lire was raging in the mine. How the firo originated is only supposition, hut it is believed that an explosion an a fall occurred. The conditions below soon become so hazardous that the manager (Mr. Clem.

Ellalong. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 31 July 1914
Ellalong. Quite unusual excitement was evidenced here last week end by the arrival in the township of a large box. The box was spoken of with a certain amount of awe, and someone went so far as to suggest that it contained the treasure of the once notorious outlaw Yellow Billy, which is believed &nbsp; by some to exist somewhere in the Catchaboy area. By the time the veh icle containing the mysterious box drew up at its destination a consider- able crowd had assembled, and with eyes bulging out like the nails on a miner's pit boot awaited the lifting of the lid. When the box was opened a treasure indeed was behold— the photos of Ellalong's famous tennis players. Beautiful photos they were too. While those who expected '* Yellow Billy's treasure to come to light were in a measure disappointed, still all clamoured for one of the photos. Indeed so great was the demand that a suggestion is being considered to have 1000 more copies printed and to sell them at £1/1/ a piece. It is...

Bellbird [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 7 August 1914
Bellbird* (From our Correspondent.) The business depression consequent upon the late strike here has lifted, andu more hopeful aspect is taken of tbAigs generally. The two worst montlis for business following the strike have had their effect too, but business during the last week has been much more brisk. The quest ion which seems to be foremost now is how far (should the threatened war eventuate) it will affect the mine, and consequently tho town. 1 understand that the occupier will have to pay £8 a week for the tenancy of the new hotel. This seems a tall order for the size of the town. There is no mistake it is a fine building, and the inside vies with the outside for splendour. Messrs. Cook Bros, butchers, are doing a splendid retailing business. It is said that too many Cooks spoil the broth. There are just enough, however, in j this progressive firm to give you every attention and satisfaction, and supply you with the best meat (for broth or otherwise) at lowest prices. ? The f...

The South Maitland Coalfield. ITS BIRTH. Papeh No. 1.. Copyright: All Rights Reserved by . the Author. By Jas. R. Scott, _J.P., Member of the Australian Historical Society, and of the Maitland District Scien titio and Historical Research Society. To say that the South Maitland Coalfield was ' discovered' in any particular year, or by any particular person or party, would, like most historical generalisations, be more or less misleading. Unless, of course, qualified by the context. It might be said at once that the existence in this locality (in and around Gess nock) of what scientists have termed ' bottled sunshine ' was known almost one hundred years ago : por paps earlier. In tho early '20's of last century, the officer who was en gaged in the survey -of the Great North- Rood whioh connects Sydney with the North, noted ah outcrop of coal in what is now known, as Bell bird Creek. This- officer was an en thusiastic water-color artist, and was in the habit of supplementing his matter...

Sudden fall in Pork. On Monday last, a slight mishap that might have had meant serious consequences happened to Mr. J. D. Woodbouse of Ellalong.
