Foreman* one of the Vice-Presidents, presided, and on behalf of apiarists in th« vicinity of Branxton cordially welcomed visitors from West Maitland and else where.

Pender would kindly explain them. After that questions might be put to the meeting and answered by those whose varied experience best fitted them to reply to same. The Chairman's suggestion was adopted, and views illustrating the manipulation of hives, the anatomy of bees, and hives adopted largely in other countries were exhibited and explained to every one's satis faction.

: ^ADRIAN'S RELEASE. CHAPTER THE LAST 'FORQtVE ME; I HAVE WKONCIE1J YOU.' Through the thick darKne.ss, scarcely relieved in any degree by the bright light of the stars, the relief party sped on its may to the beseiged bunga low. Time was precious and they knew — life or death might depend on a few minutes either way— the fate of the helpless vromen and children hung on their Bpeed. As they hastened on, Adrian's thoughts, wild and confused at first, began to shape themselves into more orderly fashion, and to comprehend the extraordinary result which seemingly chance events had brought about. ' £ could almost believe that I was dreaming,' he mused. 'For the second time within a few weeks, I am striving to preserve the life of one who should be the deareut person ou earth to me, and who is, ? but I won't even think that out. But there is some deep meaning in this marvellous series of events ; so unexpected, so compelling me with irresistible force. Yes, yes, I see it now. A higher Powe...

Englishwomen Beyond the Seas. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 26 January 1894
Englishwomen Beyond the Seas. [By the Countess of Jersey.] (From the. Queen of 2nd December, Abridged.) Among the many merits attributed to the English race po3sibly that which is claimed with the.least fear of contradiction is that it produces the best colonists in the world. Trnly when we look far'andwide in every quarterof the globe, and seethe English flag waring over etataly cities and crowded quays, when we hear the English tongue spoken in little homesteads nestled among Australian hills or breaking the sweep of Canadian prairies, we wonder wherein lies the secret of our country's power of expansion. The gentlemen of England who live at home at ease hear plenty of stories of the gallantry and devotion of those who have sailed over trackless deeps, hewn their way through pathless forests, and founded cities beneath the Southern Cross. Rightly are the names of such men placed upon the roll of honour. But the ladies of England hear much less of the everyday heroism which has led...

CONVERSAZIONE, WeSLEYAN GHURCH.— UJ an xouncement in our weekly edition it will be seen that the WesleyanChurch authorities purpose holding on February 21, 22, 23, in the Town Hal, a grand conversazione, musical festival, and sale ot work.

ECHOES OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 26 January 1894
ECHOES OF SPORT. The popular Plattsburg and Wallsend Amateur Turf Club will hold its next meeting on March 3, when £]20 will be distributed. The programme will appear next week, and as usual the genial ' Jack' Moss is secretary. ? Vogengang, winner of the Wellington Cup, was a pretty fair performer as a tw o-year-old, but the good opinion formed of him when he won the Canterbury Champagne Stakes, beating Day Dream (now in England), Whakawatea, Stepniak and Launceston, was hardly borne out by his subsequent running, though he won a couple of races as a three-year-old. Burlington, the sire of Vogengang, is by Albany (sire of OudeiB.Day Dream, &c.) from Gossip, by Traducer, and I believe was at one time sold for about ' a tenner,' so that he can by no means be considered an aristocrat. There should be a large attendance at the Aus tralian Running Ground this evening, when the first rounds of the Race Night's Handicap will be got through. The event promises to evoke ' whips' of ...
