Victims of Vaccination. : Mrs. Esima Packek, of 5, Brailsfora-road, : Urixton, sends to a London paper the follow- j ing letter describing a mother's experience of vaccination : — ' Since the inquest 3-iuM by' the coroner, Dr. Danford Thomas, on Novem- : l-er 1G, on my two children, J have boen asked for a few particulars Kjf laytetriUe experience.

Ennis. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 19 January 1889

JSnais. (PROS OUR CORnESPONDEtft.'i After owe Christmas and New Year festivi ties we have now fairly settled down to our usual duties, aud for some time past it would have appeared that 1889 was not appearing to be very encouraging, or at least the com mencement of it. Very windy and continued dry weather seemed to be bent upon arrest ing the maize crops in their growth, and this, together with the desperate blight, has proven very «ffective in -changing the former prolific appearance to that of drooping, and not at all pleasing prospects. To-day we have, to our delight, witnessed a change by a slight thunderstorm, which signifies a continuity of the much-needed rain, and I sincerely trust it may be so. This rain, if at all of any duration, must niean many pounds to the farming community, as well as make the health of our district more appreciative. Deoohi.no. — I notice die drogher is now fully taxed in carrying the last year's maize from the river. To-day the genial captain inform...

The Mule. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 19 January 1889

The ICttle. Tan Townsville Bulletin asserts that in the more isolated portions of the north of Queens land the popularity of the mule as a beast of burden is yearly becoming more pronounced. It is the experience of packers and others who undertake to transport goods over thb coast range and on to the tableland tltat mules are gifted with the qualities ot endurance and cutcness, and of picking up a living en rot) to in superiority to the horse; aid, consequently, a large number of these animals erf used.

The Members' Cup. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 19 January 1889

£he Members' Cap. Vl Aquatic' writes as follows to the Manning Times: — There was a rather strong attraction at Port Mac ?quarift regatta on Thursday last. I am told the ?moat interesting -mce of the day was the race for boats under canvas,- prize, 'The Members' Cup,' twenty-five pounds added. This was expected to bring out the Port Macquarie and Maclcay profes 'siOiiaU. Perhaps more thau usual interest was taken in this race this year, owing to a new Man niug boat being entered to wrest, if possible, the supremacy from the Macleay boats re the Cup. And -as this was to lio the ma'iaen performance of the %ie\v comer, ' Our Joe,' aquatie uicu had suspicion that 'bug would spoil the chauccs of all competi tors for first honors.

Kendall, Camden Haven. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 19 January 1889

Kendall, Camden Haven. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) A most interesting and instructive lecture was delivered at Kendall on the evening of the 14th inst., by Angus Mackay, Esq., on the cultivation and diseases of maize. The chair was taken by Mr. J. Laurie, who fully explained the object of the meeting. The hall was pretty well filled, and many of those present did well to come so far, considering the deplorable roads, for in no part of the electorate can such roads be seen as are to be found leading to the upper part of the river. The text chosen by the lecturer was "Maize, how to   Cultivate it, its Diseases, &c." He was listened to with marked attention, and I must say, in every sense of the word, the lecture was a success, and I am sure every man present went home much wiser than when he came. All seemed satisfied, for when the vote of thanks was given the rafters of the hall at Kendall rang with a hearty good will, no doubt much to the annoyance of the white ants...

The evening was beautifully fine, and olear moon light, but, from various causes, one of which was a lamented death in a prominent 'family nf HiB 'district, the attendance was less than at the other meetings. This was unfortunate, for the subject — the treatment of Australian soils, and very closely the soils of the district, as described in the plain matter-of-fact man ner in which Mr. Mackay handles his subject — makes the matter most instructive aud very interesting. It is such a hopeful sub ject, too, as tlie instructor points out the good qualities of our soils, and explaius their de fects, and how those .defects can be made good, resulting in tlie biggest kind of crops, that it is a pity such very sterling information was not more generally l...
