Big Blaze at Weston. PUBLIC SCHOOL GUTTED. ESTIMATED DAMAGE £3000. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 24 December 1913

Big Blaze at Weston. PUBLIC SCHOOL GUTTED. ESTIMATED DAMAGE £3000. Considerable excitement prevailed in Weston on Sunday morning, the cause being a conflagration at the public school. Just about half-past nine the fire-bell rang out the alarm and it was not long before the Weston Fire Brigade was on the scene. A few minutes later tho Kurri Kurd brigade put in an appearance. The combined efforts of the brigades were taxed to their uttermost to fight the fiery elements, but owing to the obsolete and inadequate fire-fighting appliances which are dumped on to the coal fields brigades as well as in sufficient water it was impossible to prevent the entire demolition . of the bnilding. The structure being a weatherboard one soon became a ' magnificent blaze, and the heat was so intense that it was impossible to approach closer than 15 or 20 feet to the fiery furnace.

A Progressive Period. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 24 December 1913

A Progressive Period.   The year 1913 is drawing to a close, and those who care to review it will arrive at the conclusion that it has been a year of progress and prosperity. Throughout the Common- wealth prosperity has reigned, and in our own particular district every- thing has gone on well, and the closing of the year gives a very in- viting appearance to 1914. Cess- nock has shown wonderful advance- ment and work has been plentiful. Add to this that the seasons have   been favorable, and under such cir- cumstances nothing but prosperity could have been expected. The   mines have worked with regularity and it heeds only to be pointed out that the output of the Aberdare and Extended collieries approaches nearly a million tons for the year to show the extent of our coal trade. Taken from every aspect the town has improved. Buildings have gone up in all directions and it is notice- able that in the case of the busi- ness houses that have been e...

Snakes. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 24 December 1913

Snakes. The "Maitland Mercury" gives     an account of what they term "an extroarding" snake capture at Po- kolbin. To give the story as our aged contemporary tells it it appears that an employee at the Catawaba Vineyard made a hit at a small black snake, missed it, and the snake rushed into a bottle for protection   —but was killeol after all. We fail   to see anything extroadinary in this. Nothing would have been said had a man or woman been driven to the bottle when in trouble but because a miserable little, snake seeks the bottle in his trouble it becomes extraordin- ary. It was not a no-license snake anyhow, otherwise it would never have lived, at a vineyard. This re- minds us chaps on emptying a black bottle have been known to have seen numerous snakes !     Mr Justice Hoggins has suspended           for fourteen weeks the operation of ...

He showed by his riding last night that he was easily the best rider on the ground, and that he was not only a good rider, but able to do plenty of it.
