GRETA. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 10 March 1894

GRETA. Flood Damage. — To-day we made a circuit of the town— part of the way in company with tho Mayor — and had ample proof of the great havoc caused by the heavy flood' Our first course was toward the bridge at the railway station and arrived there, we were agreeably surprised to find that this stout old bridge had not suffered to such an extent as was at first thought. The approaches were swept away certainlj , and there is a fear that the whole structure has been slightly shifted on the piles, but we could discern no trace of this, and we think the old bridge would yet stand repairing. Close to this bridge stands the residence of Mr. James Glceson — the man whom I reported as hav ing had to fly with his family on the night oE the flood— and tins place has been actually gutted. The horse stands low down on the bank of the creel: in a most dangerous situation and the marvel is that the family got out cE it with their lives. When the torrent was at its worst the place seemed to be ...

RAYMOND TERRACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 10 March 1894

RAYMOND TERRACE. An apprehension that we were to have a flood in this month has prevailed here for some t;me past, and unfoitunately it has been verified. A heavy downpour set in at one o'clock on Tuesday, and continued without intermission till midnight, when the guage registered a fall of 7 inches and CO points. The river rose rapidly during the night, and afc Bine o'clock this morning it was three feet above normal level. There is a great body of water coining down the 'Williams, all the agricultural land along the banks being covered. A con siderable tract in the lower part of Miller's Forest is covered, and remembering the dis astrous consequences of the flood which occurred at this time last year settlers have taken the precau tion to remove their cattle to higher country. The river is 1 foot C inches over the wharves in Eaymond Terrace, and business is almost entirely suspended. The steamer Daisy which was moored in midstream broke away during the night and was carried down t...

Review. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 10 March 1894

Review. The History and £ resin I State of the Shecp-hrccding Industry in the Argentine Republic. By Hek bejit Gibson. Buenos Aire3 : Ravenscroft and f Mills. Sydney and Melbourne : George Robert son and Co. The author of thi3 work is a son of one of the first pioneers of the sheep-breeding industry in the Argentine Republic, and he dutifully dedicates the book to his parent. For Australians the book has an intm-nsfc cliieflv because it nresents an extended and detailed view of the sheep-breeding industry in a land which already is a strong competitor in the London wool market and is destined to be an equally strong competitor in the London and Con tinental meat market. Mr. Qib3on confesses to a two-fold object in writing this history. His first purpose is to instruct the small capitalist who is looking for a location where he may find a comfortable home and gain a fair return for his labour and outlay. The favourable pros pects of the industry may also, tho author thinks, attract t...

The New Prime Minister of England. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 10 March 1894

— ' '? The New Prime Minister of England. The nobleman who succeeds tho Right Honorable William Ewart Gladstone as leader of the Glad stonian Liberals and as Prime Minister of England, Lord Rosebery, is tho tenth Prime Minister who has held office under Queen Victoria. And he is one of the two youngest occupants of the office since tho time of Pitt. Sir Robert Peel was nf fho same ago as Lord Rosebery, 40 years, when he formed hie first Administration, bufc with the excep tion of the statesman who abolished the corn laws, her Majesty's Primo Ministers have all been men well advanced in years. Lord Rosebery ha3 been ill office for a very few months— he has not in the agj gregate served two years— and the fact that he has seemed the fittest successor to his great chief is something like luck. In past years, and before the split occurred in the Liberal ranks by Mr. Glad stone's espousal of Home Rule, Lord Hart ington, or Mr. Chamberlain, or Mr. Morley, or Sir William Harcourfc, would h...

Peel River Land and Mineral Company. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 10 March 1894

Peel Eiver Land and Mineral Company. Mr. A. K Scott presided, in London, on Jan. 19, at the forty-first annual meeting, and, in moving the adoption the report, said that, taking into consideration the_ extra ordinarily depressed state of affairs in the Australian colonies, they had some reason to con gratulate themselves upon the result of their work during the past year, although the earnings had been some .£8000 less than thoso ot the previouByear. This was to be attributed almost entirely to the low price of live stock, falling almost entirely upon sheep. As an instance of the falling in values, he mentioned that for live sheep the average in 1890 was 8s Gd, and for cattle X5 lis 3d ; but in 1892 the average for sheep fell to 4s Ud, and for cattle to -£3 ISs 8d. Last year sheen averaged 3s 8d, and cattle JE3 17s 2d. This price* was extremely disappoint ing, but it arose from the fact that the market in England had been flooded with meat from New Zealand and the River Plato. In Au...

England and Prance. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Weekly Mercury — 10 March 1894

England and Prance. An article from the pen of M. Edouard Lockroy has lately attracted much attention in Paris. He fervently trusts that war will never break out be tween France and England. ' Heaven preserve us from such insanity. England is a great and noble country, whose friendship is precious to us.' He argues, however, that a Naval Minister should pro vide for every emergency, and on the sea England would be France's most powerful antagonist. For what would be said of a Minister of War who, when asked if he had foreseen the contingency of compli cations with Germany, replied, 'No; but I am ready to fight with Belgium !' A war with Eng land would present terrible difficulties. The British Fleet would cruBh the French, ' sous le pois du fer.' England has more than twice the number of ships that France possesses, yet she is far from invulnerable. Fast-sailing cruisers might play havoc with her trading vessels, but the coasts of England's foe should be sufficiently protected to I ...

But I have a regard for you, and feel it on my conscience to do what I can to prevent your bringing great misery on yourself.

The American Woman of Fashion. 'While ladies at Chicago were demonstrat ing that a woman is as good as a man, and a little better too, there are signs (says the San Francisco Argonaut) of a male uprising againBt the domination and rudeness of the sex : — j .From time immemorial toe tasmonaoie American woman has asserted her claims to supremacy in tbe small concerns of daily life, and haB declared her independence of social laws. She holds that she is not bound by the conventional laws which render grega rious life tolerable. She will not extend either to persons of her own sex or to those of the other tbe small courtesies and de ferences which good breeding dictates, and on which general comfort depends. She will consult no one's convenience but her 'own. With a lofty sense of her superiority she will cultivate a thoughtlessness of what other people like or want, and act as if she were tho sole occupant of her mundane sphere. The thing is carried to such a- pitch tbat it appears to ...

REPAIRING HIS FAULT. CHAPTER XXX. Elsie Benting made no reply to Branlow's sinister remark, but stnod gazing after him, as he rode off with his captors, under tho broad shadows of the autumn-tinted maples, — remembering, perhaps, with what different feelings she had lately wotched the departure of her brothers with another prisoner, — when a well-dressed and tolerably good-looking boy on horseback might have been seen approach ing from the opposite direction. She did not notice him until, having watched the waggon out of sight, she turned to reBntor the house. Just then he reined his slowly pacing horse up under the trees. She looked around, but failed to recognise him at first. ' You don't remember me,' he said, with a smile. The same smile with which he had bidden her good-bye beneath those very trees ; yet not quite the same. In his best attire, having exchanged his every-day clothes for his Sunday suit, and his white base-ball cap for a neat brown-felt hat, like wise his mood of...

Things is gittin' dark, an' there's a buzzin' in my ears.' And as they dis appeared in a low doorway, Joe almost carrying his sick friend, and still his voice rang out cheerily : ' Homo now, pard, lean harder.'
