Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889

- m HE MOST POPULAR DRINK IN THE X COLONY IS ROW'S BITTERS! Read the following reporta from chemical exami nations, which, will at once convince you of their purity : " Government Analytical Laboratory, . " Melbourne, July ll, 1884. " I have examined a bottle of Row's (Steane's) SUPERLATIVE AROMATIC TONIC BITTERS, mann factored by Edward Row and Company, and find it to be remarkably pleasant in flavor, containing about 16 per cent, of a very pure alcohol, and hold- ing in solution a clear wholesome Vegetable Bitter, .combined with a fruity spicy aroma. I consider this Bitter a very superior article. " "WM. JOHNSON, " Government Analytical Chemist. The great demand throughout the colony for these pure Bitters shows they are superior to all others, and equalled by none. FACTS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS.

The British Race and its Future. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889

The British Race and its Future. THERE are many thousands of Australians who know Christie Murray. They have read " Joseph's Coat," " The Way of the ' "World,"' " Ey the Gale of the Sea," "Hearts," "A Life's Atonement," and other of his works of fiction, and there are few who have not felt that they knew the writer himself so deeply has be enlisted all their sympathies and absorbed their interest, and for these reasons, if for na other, Mr. Murray will find the audiences at his lectures larger than he anticipates. He is a big Englishman-rather proud of the circumstance-with a large, strong head, thickly covered with long iron-grey hair, and a finely-cut, kindly face half hidden, however, hy tho beard he wears. He is not unlike what Charles Dickens was. Many people detect a great similarity, but in Christie Murray the expression is more gentle, hut . changing as he speaks so as to illustrate every thought passing through his mind. " I have come to Australia," he says simply, " becaus...

Dave Herndon's Fortune. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889

Dave Herndon's Fortune. " THESE muffins are fine, little woman," said Dave Herndon as he buttered his fourth. "I think you excel in the line of hot breads." " I'm glad you like them, and that you have such a hearty appetite, I'm afraid you don't enjoy your lunch down town. "What restaurant do you go to ?" " Oh ! to no particular one, Nellie," and he quickly changed the subject. He could not bring himself to tell her that, careful and economical as she was, their expenses were so hard to meet that he nearly always went without his lunch at noon to save the pitiful two bits each one would cost him. None of the other clerks brought their lunch with them, so he was too proud to carry auythiog from home, and usually spent the ' noou-hour under a shady tree in the park. At this moment the door-hell rang, and Nellie, who answered the summons, came hack with an open telegram in her hand. " A telegram for me," she said, stopping by her husband's chair. " Listen," she went on hurriedly, for s...

A Curious Scene. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889

A Curious Scene. A CTJBlOTjs scene was presentedvat the Dahlia Police Court the other day of a stalwart constable i struggling to raise to the bench a hamper which t taxed his strength, for it contained 4| stone of ? silver and copper coin, and this was only a part of the treasure which the female searchers found in the tattered garments of a woman arrested the i previous evening for begging. Among other ' unconsidered trifles stowed away among her rags i were about half a stone of potatoes, a quart of peas, i and a miscellaneous collection of other articles, ? But the hamper of coin was only a fraction of the i mendicant's wealth. There were found upon her ; besides £2S3 in gold, £390 in notes, a bank ! deposit receipt for £100, and two shares in the : Monarch Building Society for £10 and £14. AB I she stood when arrested she carried money and i securities to the amount of nearly £800. How she 1 walked under Buch a weight is almost incompre hensible. Her name is Annie Cooley ; she ...

A Serious Swindle. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889

 Serious Swindle. THE largest sam ever won in an Austrian lottery has fallen to a resident in Vienna, who claims to j have won £38,000, in a State lottery, lately drawn | in Temesvar. The fortunate gambler invested in what is called the Small Loto, an institution which 1 keepB open office in every town, and is very popular with the lower classes. The play merely consists in backing a number or series of numbers and a sum as small as 3d may be staked. The winner in question, however, who is described asan elegantly dressed young man of about 30, risked from 1500A. to 2000A. in backing five numbers and ten different combinations of those numbers, his stake on each Bingle number being lOfl. He stood to win or lose all on the chance of all his figures turning up in the order chosen by him. It happened that all his combinations were drawn, and he became entitled to win 4SO,OO0fl. on each of his ten rows of five figures. As the tickets were bought in Vienna, the Government have had to pa...

An Editor's Lucky Hit. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889

An Editor's Lucky Hit. HB. DAVID CHRISTIE MURRAY, the novelist, tells ns a good story of an editor's lucky hit. Thia editor was engaged on a London newspaper, and through some sudden illness or indisposition, which even editorial flesh may be heir to, he did not feel up to writing his usual leading article. The printer was howling for his "copy," but still inspiration did not take possession of the editorial brain. "Let me have ten minutes to think it over," pleaded the editor. In ten minutes the printer returned to find his editor asleep. He roused him and insisted on get- ting his "leader." The uninspired editor "both- ered " the printer, but needs must when the print- er's devil drives. Seizing a copy of that day's Times' the editor clipped one of its leading articles ont bodily and wrote above it, " What in the name of all that's wonderful does Tlie Times mean by this." This was the leading article, and next day all London was talking over it as a gem, for just as luck would hav...

Coldstream. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889

Coldstream. NAVIGATION of this stream is somewhat impeded by an immense tree which having fallen in extends almost half way across the stream. POSTHUMOUS.-Mach genuine Borrow was mani- fest owing to the sudden and sad death of Mrs. Cove, sen., a very old and much respected resident. Apparently hale and healthy, she was on Sunday prostrated by a paralytic stroke, and though retain- ing consciousness till the last, she never regained the power of speech. BRIDGE.-The contract is out for a bridge over "Broadmouth." This has been much needed and long expected, so that the inhabitants are much pleased that at last their hopes are to be fulfilled. TOURNAMENT.-Draughts-formed a most popular pastime in our district, and from continual practice there are several knights far and away superior to the ordinary amateur. Three gentlemen from Cowper have challenged, and we quite anticipate giving them a very good " drabbing." SCHOLASTIC-It is pleasing to learn that some of our children are to be at...

Lawrence. THURSDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889

Lawrence. THDBSDAT. Lawrence District Improvement Board. -The committee (Messrs. Shields, Loewenthal and Philip) appointed to draw up a code of new rules and bye-laws for the proper working and man- agement of the people's interests, did not have an easy task io perform. Representing, as they did, the wisheB and the various elements throughout the district, their deliberations and final propasáis as submitted, not unnaturally, met with fair success, and if the elections for the various wards are car- ried out in the spirit that the sub-committee intend, and no hitches or cross-grained efforts are introduced into the campaign, the result should be quita satisfactory to all concerned. There cannot be any doubt about it, the new code of rules have been a carefully studied and well put together code throughout, and the people are to be congratulated upon the good sense they have shown in their acceptance of them. Let us now all try and work in unity for the district's good, and when the...

Echoes and Opinions. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889

Echoes and Opinions. THE information supplied to the Member for The Clarence with regard to the rails for the works at the Clarence Heads may appear all very well aa an excuse, but the explanation is not quite satisfactory. Sometime back it was stated that the. quarry on the South side had been worked out, and that it was necessary before Sir JOHN COODE'S plans were ?proceeded with that another quarry should be opened. With this view extensive explorations were made, and shafts sunk, we understand, at Angowrie Point and other places. A line for a railway was also surveyed, the rails requisite for that work sent on, and the work commenced. Then it was discovered that the old quarry was not quite worked out, but, on the contrary, there was a con- siderable quantity of first-class stone Btill procur- able there. This discovery appears to have caused some delay in pushing on the railway line to the proposed new quarry, and we are informed that at the rate that line has been carried on d...

THE GLOBE ORE-CRUSHER.-A private trial to demonstrate the value of the Globe mill-crushing plant was given, in the presence of a large number of gentlemen interested in mining, on Saturday afternoon last, at Messrs. Milne Brothers, Balmain. The machine is similar to the one used by the gun department at Woolwich arsenal, and in size it is much smaller than a stamper battery calculated to do the same amount of work. One of the advantages claimed for this mill is that the ball pulverises by a series of blows, and does not grind, so that the crystals of gold are in the most perfect condition for treatment by the chlorinisation or other process of amalgamation. The mill on exhibition was a wet machine, although a mill on the same principle is made for crushing dry ; but, in the dry process, instead of the reduced material being taken away by water, it is drawn away by means of a fan, and deposited in a series of settling chambers, from which it is afterwards removed. Both mills do their...

We have one or two fast skaters, and others are anxious to try their speed, which they are debarred from doing down here on account of the smallness of the local rink.
