LOCAL EVIDENCE THIS:— [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895
LOCAL EVIDENCE THIS : — Mr. Thomas Edgeworth, Binalong, wbo writes on Juno 12, 1893 : — ' About twelve months ago I 'was a sufferer from indi gestion. The symptoms from which I have suffered were groat pains in tbo chest, especially after moals. I had no sooner eaten anything than I would have a violent ,fit of retching ; I could not retain anything on my stomach ; the con sequence .was that I became weaker daily, although I had the advice of a doctor, and also his medicine ; I derived no benefit from either. Seeing so . much about Clements Tonic in every nBwepapBr I took up, I resolved to get a bottle. I did So, and by the timo 1 had finished the third bottle I was thoroughly cured of all dis agreeable symptoms ; if ever. I feel out of sorts, I fly to Clements Tonic, and I am happy to say I am never disappointed ; if I was to writO for a month I could not say moro in favor of Clements Tonic, though I am a thorough believer in it.— I remain, yours sincerely, Thomas Edgeworth, fencer...

DARKEST REDFERN. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE "SUNDAY TIMES.") [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895
darkest kedfem, (to THE EDITOR OB' THE ' SUNDAY TIMES.') Sir, — Iu no oase has the Sunday Times done better servioe tban.ni opening the eyes of the publio to a veritable plague-spot in our midst, j the Syrian colony at Redfern. In your last j issue a few correspondents have taken up the i cudgels on behalf of the Syrians and Indians, j but tbeir defence is palpably weak ; iu point j of fact, your reporter might have said a groat deal more without being guilty of exaggeration, and our dusky neighbors owo him a debt of gratitude for tho generous spirit in which he handled the subject. He might have depicted in rnuoh more vivid lan guage the squalor and filth surrounding the houses in which they ' pig together ' ; and as | to the allegation of a correspondent in defence j that they are an industrious people, absurdity j ia written upon the face of it, for everyone knows that the only occupation in which they | engage is that of dealing, and, in tho case of j the Syrians, the whole of t...

CITY MUTUAL LIFE ASSURANCE SOCIHTY. Annnal Meeting1. At the sixteenth annual meeting of the share holders of the City Mutual Life Assurance Sooiety, held on Tuesday afternoon at the head office, corner of Hunter aud Bligh itreets, Mr. John Hardie, chairman of directors, presided. The directors report detailed that steady progress had been made throughout the year, ' 14S3 new policies, assuring iJ188,664, and yielding an annual income of ^6564(1, having been issued. Renewal premiums also showed a satisfactory increase over 1893, the figures being: 1893,^21,293; 1894,^22,593. The new business for the year had been obtained at an expense of about 88 per cent, the in dustrial business had cost 53 per cent, and the [ Renewals 25 per cent.

FORTUNES SPENT IN RENT. Fabulous Prices for Fashionable Houses. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895
FORTUNES SPENT IN RENT. Fabulous Prices for Fashionable Houses. It ia easy to understand how the man whose income can be counted by hundreds of thousands spends his money, when we take a peep at one side only of liis out goings (says an English exchange ). The wealthy man must bo housed in a palatial mansion, situated in the very heart of fashionable London, and to do this means the payment of a colossal reut. Let us take G-rosveuor-square, which is without a solitary exception the mobt fashionable residential street in all the West End. The rents of the houses here vary from .£1000 a year to £8000. Few houses in this square come into the market; but just now there happens to be one, and the rent asked is 3000 guineas per year, or a thousand guineas less if for the season only. In all Grosvonor-square there are loss than 60 houses, but the annual rent roll is not far Bhort of j£150, 000 ! In Berkeley-square, which is much in vogue amongst the old aristocracy, rents vary from .£500 t...
(TO THE EDITOR OF THE "SUNDAY TIMES") [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895
(TO THE EDITOR OF THH ' SUNDAY TIMES.') j Sir, — I have read with muoh interest— and I may say amusement — the letters of A. B. Manouk,' ' LouiB Kahla,' and ' An Old Soldier ' on the Syrian question. With regard to the first two I advise your readers to look up Lady Burton's ' The Inner Lifo of Svria. Palestine, aud the Holy Land. Lady Burton resided for some yearo in DamasouB, where her husband, the late Sir Riohard Burton, waa Her Britannio Majesty's Consul. Lady Burton saw a good deal of Syria during her sojourn there, and mixed freely with all classes of people ; she iB, and was then, a devout Catholio, a woman of clear understand ing and a keen observer, and this is what she says: 'The Syrian Christian is ono to whom if yon give an inch he will take many ells. Ho will act the 1 porcupine and the snakes he will shortly be the owner of the house, end make you feel as if you were staying there on a visit.' This accords, I think, with ' Louis Kahla's' letter, and bin concluding par...

The committee of the Sydney- Benevolent Asylum having ascertained that tbe contribu tions towards the Benevolent Sooiety for 1894 only included a sum of ;8S from the Liconsod Victuallers of tho colony, have issued a special appeal to that body, soliciting thoir assistance. and there is vory little doubt that it will. meet with a generous response, particularly as it is : pointed out how groat is the need for assis tance at present amongst tho aged and afflicted poor. Pale, sickly children should use Mother Graves' Worm Exterminator. Worms are one of the principal oauses of suffering in children, and should be expelled from the system. 5,1

WASTED FRUIT. Some Suggestions. COMBINATION AMONGST GROWERS. Co-operative Factories—Fruit Preservation—How to Make Markets. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895
WASTED FRUIT. Some Suggestions. COMBINATION AMONGST TOWERS. . Uil'i ,jt.J .^J' Co-operative Factories— Fruit Freser Tfttipn— How to Make Markets. The Bumjme? fruit season has turned out poorly for growers. It was fondly hoped that an increased export trade, a not too prolific crop, and better copimgrcial conn ditions would bay© brought about a revival in tho fruit industry for 1895. The hope, howeyer, has nofc been realised; in fact prices for fruit of all descriptions have been lower than ever. Sales alow, markets overstocked. ' Fruit,' the crohardista are disparagingly sayipg, ' is done in New South Wales.' Your Australian agriculturist ia a pessimist by nature, but when tho market prices descend he passes from pessimism to misanthropy, from misanthropy to utter despair. As a matter of faot, there is no more reason for saying that the days of profitable fruit growing are over in this colony, than for saying that there is no more marketable mineral in onr mountains or timber in our...
