REVISION OF RAILWAY RATES. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 5 January 1884
REVISION OF RAILWAY RATES. The revision of ratos by the Commissioner of Railways on suburban season tickets, trending to an increase on tlie previous charges, has caused tlio residents of liook wood and Burwood to talco up tlio subject with a view to insist upon tlio present fares being adhered to, as being quite high enough. If looked upon from the standpoint of work and labour done, the present rates are insignificant ; they are not proportionate to services rendered. They aro lower than tlio rates charged on the suburban lines of other colonie.-i. They are monstrously out of comparison with the prices paid by ordi nary paid by ordinary passongers ; and they are not pro rata with the scale from monthly to yearly season tickets. Those who objeefc to the increaso do so on the ground that if othor portions of the railway do not pay, it is unfair to tax the suburban season ticket travellers to make up the deiiciency. But the sum estimated to be realised by tlio alteration is only abou...
THE BOWRAL FREE PRESS, and MITTAGONG, BURRAWANG, AND KANGALOON ADVOCATE SATURDAY, JANUARY 5, 1884. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 5 January 1884
the BO WEAL FBEE PRESS, mid Mittaoono, Bumuwano, and Kaxoaioon Advocate SATURDAY, JANUARY 5, 1881. The year of Graco 1888 has passed, and left a legacy of good promises to bo fulfil led in 1881. Prom the beginning to the end of tho past year It luis been oixo of struggle and the laying of foundations for futuro action. Tho struggle has been to keep afloat the operations of commerce and trade in tho face of a tight money market and tho cautiousness of speculators ; the foundations are those which affect our future j laud policy, our enlarged school systems, the management of our railways, and our political relationship with tho mother coun try and the world. So far, there appear to bo indications of a more active stale of life commercially and progressively in 1881 than tlioro were in 1883. Tho fluctuating sentimonts which prevailed for so many months as to the principles of tho new Land Bill have settled down to a more definite purpose ; all parties seem to be agreed as to certain p...

" Because I gave him my half-crown, ami if Í ciw only /iinl Jiim 1 will give him iivc shillings to hand it bnck to mo." " A profitable transaction for the cabby, if not for you." " Well, I wouldn't, loso thai half-crown for more than fivo shillings," and I put on my | hat and set off in search of tho cabman. I j found him, after a little search, und asked him if ho bad changed the half-crown I hud given hitn the other day before." " Ho didn't think ho had.

"CHAWED UP BY A B'AR." [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 5 January 1884
'■ CHAWED UP 1ÎY A B'All." " Yus, Haber, she's bin chawed up by a b'ar ; that's the tamal critter hangin' up out thiir." That is what lie said to mo, when I went over to his cabin one night in Nevada, whore wo were neighbouring fanners aud hunters. " 'Sense ino, but I'm all broko up over it," said ho, and lie sat by the great fireplace with tears rolling down his weather-beaten cheeks. " I could have braced up under it if my poor Mary had got sick and died at home with mo holdiu' of Iht hand ami con soliu' her as she was breakin' camp for tho other world ; but to bo chawed up by a tarnal b'ar in tho woods, and mo nowhar around to protect her—that's what gits me, nabor."

A VISIT TO A BUSH HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 5 January 1884
A VISIT TO A BUSH HOUSE. - (By an English Wandkker.) Many readors, on scoing this heading, might, and probably would exclaim, well thora is not much to writo about a " houso in the bush," for I take it that is what a "bush house " is, and should this journal find its way, as doubtless it often does, to somo English homestead, I think the renders tliero would bo, as our Yankoo cousins say, " consarned considerable," as to what either a bush house, or a house in the bush is. However, revenons a nos mouiom—let lis return to our subject. Tho bush house, (lie writer is about, to describe to the best of his ability, is situated in the midst, or thereabouts, of Cainpbelltowu, the said township boiiig at a distatico of thirty lbiir" miles from Sydney- by train, and is probably named after one of the earliest pioneers, is a whole.-soiuo nice-looking old township, it is also the second as to age in this colony; Parranmtta boing the oldest. The tram runs from lioro to Camden, a great boon to t...

LOCAL AND GENERAL. W. H. MURDOCK, the batting celebrity of the world scored 158 for New South Wales in the intercolonial match. &nbsp; JONES, the ongine-driver, who ca'-ised the fatal ac cident a1; the Buko anot'/I'imor claim, has been committed for trial. _> The following were selebl-ed as members of the fourth Australian nieven to "visit England :—Alexan der, Banncrman, Blackham, Bonnor, Boyle, Cooper, G. Giliin, Murdoch, .jtf'Donnell, Midwinter, and l'aimer. m In the caso of the man Ilaycs, found dead at Marrickrille, the coroner's jury have returned an open verdict, with a ri ler expressing a strong sus picion that there had boon foul play, and suggesting that Government should oiler a reward for inform ation. A shocking accident happened near Waterloo some time on Friday night. A young man named Mur phy is supposed to have been eitting in front of a üre in his hut, when suddenly and without warning a tree fell, knocking him into tnc (Ire, where he must have boen roas...
CONVALESCENT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 5 January 1884
CONVALESCENT HOME. This annual ïoport of the Randwick Asylum will contain a statement relating to the establishment of a convalescent home at Minto, near Campbelltown. Randwick itself &nbsp; was selected on the ground that it was a healthy place, and probably no healthier spot for many purposes can be found. The general health of the asylum is due not a little to its situation. Whichever way the wind may blow it passes over Randwick hills, which are the first also to see the sun rise and the last' to see it set. But there are nota few persons who find the air of the place too strong for them, and it is not sur prising if some delicate children cannot breathe such strong air. The proposal to try tlio softer climate along the Southern liue is wise, siuce one of the first objects of the asylum is to recover the lost health of its inmates. Too many of them have been neglected so as not only to have contracted various disorders incident to childhood, but also to have lost stamina...

BUNDANOON. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 12 January 1884
BUNDANOON. (FROM A COnilESPONDKNT.) No doubt some of your readers would like to hoar from this tlmviug little town, so I feel it my duty to peu you a few lines for thoir benefit. The Christmas holidays are all gone for the usual period and left Bundanoon rather quiot. - It presented a very gay appearance during the holidays, the chief attraction, as in similar townships being the railway sta tion, which was decorated with flowers, treo ferns, and numerous shrubs which abound in Bundanoon, and our station mastor deserves great credit for its tidy appearance. • Mining..—Both the Ringwood and Erith collieries are doing good work. The dia mond drill too has struck coal about a mile and a half from the railway station, and, according to reports, is of a first-class character, Fires, too, are numerous up here', doing great damage to both grass and fences. - School commences here on Monday, no doub t to the regrot of some of the young sters, but the pleasure of their parents.
