A Railway Boon. For years Kurrajong, Richmond, Wind-1 sor, and Riverstone fruit-growers hívé ! suffered auder the great disadvantage of j having their produce delivered at Darling ' Harbor some hours later than that for warded by growers on the Hornsby and i Gosford lines. The serious loss incurred in not having their fruit delivered until after the last and earliest buyers had ! secured their day's supplies becoming so pronounced, Mr. Brinsley Hall took up the matter in his usual energetic manner.

MARKETS. Sydney, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 15 December 1899

MARKETS. -» . Sydney, thursday. The usual quietude was apparent in the produce markets yesterday. Values underwent little alteration, the only quotable change being a reduction in local maize. Dairy produce lines received little atten tion, and, apart from a slight weakness for case eggs, values re mained unaltered. At the morn ing's auction local chaff was in better request, and prices advanced by about 5s. a ton owing to the im proved qualities offering. Casa eggs were more plentiful, and somewhat easier, while new-laid varieties were scarce and firmer, hen eggs realising lld to ls, and duck eggs 8d to 9d. Poultry was in good demand, especially prime quality. Turkey's were slightly cheaper. Potatoes.-From Rich mond, 20 bags H.W., 3s ; 10 bags R.B.j 2s 8d; 8 bags J.M., 2s 3d; Mulgrave, 6 bags W.B., 2s lld; 32 bags J.Y., 3s ; Windsor, 25 bags G.J., 3s ; ld bags J.G., 2s 2d per cwt.

During th© writer's travels along the river last week, and more by accident than anything else, he arrived considerably after sundown at a fine looking stone residence, below which was an extensive or chard, the trees in which have grown so large and become so en tangled by their luxurious growth as to appear wild and uncared for. On making enquiries it was dis covered that the residence was none other than *' Roxford," the comfor table home of Mr. W. R. Newall. The owner of this splendid property was soon found, and after a few minutes chat about the weather, orchard, et»j, the writer was in cited to take a walk through the orchard. The first glance revealed that the orchoid was anything but uncared for, and that the owner had been putting a lot of labor.: into the orchard to get it in such a splendid state. Not aw-ed was to he seen, and without a doubt the ti «»es were the largrstto be found on the river. Many of the stone fruit trees ar* something like 40 feet across,...
