Bellbird Races. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 28 August 1914

Bellbird Races. I'or typical old-time s]-url, last Saturday's racus at Bellbiiil might be exemplified. Pat O'Xiell's races, as they are generally known to the public, attracted an attendance counted iu hundreds. With plenty of horses, plenty of race*, which in cluded two matches, and an admis sion costing ' just nothing,' it is not surprising that the outing proved an enjoyable lime. Sport was opened with the Flying Handicap, and O'Brien's O.T., hailing from Bishop's Bridge, was niii.de favourite and rolled home in line style. CliO' Cole, who strange to say wheels coal for a crust at Aberdare, had the mount on the hot pot. The next event was wo'i by George Mitchell's Why Not, the other starters not heing up to answering the question. The next item was a match with a horse owned by - Radnidge and Tom Crossley's big bay, Tom's animal, however, ran ; 1 second, lliesc two prominent rest j dents of Bellbird are also prominent j officials of the Bellbird Racing Asso- , j ciation.

OUR NOTE BOOK. The War. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 28 August 1914

OUR NOTE BOOK. The War. The war still continues foremost in topics of the day, although the ex citementthat prevailed during tfiefirst week or two of hostilities has given way to a more level-headed look at things. Many expected to hear of victories and disasters both ? on land and sea in the opening days; this occasioned no surprise because news i circulated by ' late specials ' made | the wise think there was some- I thing in the wind. Lately Aus tralians have had the opportunity of studying tho size of the country under the area of war, and it plainly shows that even in these modern times, when locomotion is fast and up-to-date, time must be given to get these great bodies of men moving, even then with great caution. Tho fighting that has taken place up to the present has been only of a frontier character, although the fighting forces seem great in comparison with the South African War. The occu pation of Brussels by the Germans lias been taken very seriously by some people : sur...

The War. ? * ? Russians t Approaching Berlin. Latest reports regarding tlio war intimate that the Eussian troops are approaching the town of Posen, which is 158 miles from Berlin. Tt is alleged that this invasion ' has not been seriously resisted, as it is the desire of the Germans lo fust seize the City of Paris. Four Russian armies have entered East Prussia and Austrian Gnlicia. A battle is taking place near Mati beuge, in French territory. At no point have the Germans penetrated French territory. The fighting on the river Samhre continues. News conies from all quarters of German brutality; women and' being the worse sufferers. Britain has acknowledged the bravery displayed by the Belgiuius, and has promised to support in every possible way. Germany seems very worried over the attitude of Italy, and is hoping that she will remain neutral. Austria has declared war on Japan Four Russian armies have invaded Gcrinany'aud Austria.

Result of Invasion. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 28 August 1914

Result ol Invasion. I Visitors to Laguna since the race j meeting have been struck with won- j der at the white appearance of the ; racecourse. The people thought al j first that snow had fallen, but the-j explanation tendered showed that ' the 'snow' appearance was caused by bookmakers' tickets — the result of brisk business at the races. ? The oldest inhabitant has declared that the invasion of the layers of the odds is only surpassed by-, the in vasion of the pumpkin beetle in the year 1869.

The Council and Electricity. To the Editor. Sin.— Aciiug under the impression that the Shire Council intended to arrange for the installation of 'elec- tricity throughout Cessnock, 1 bad. electric light fittings put into 111 y house some months ago, and now 1 am beginning to wonder if they will ever he used for the purpose they were intended for. ] was surprised to read in last week's issue of the ' Eagle' that, after all this delay the the councillors favor taking a ballot on Die question of streets lighting, Why was not ttiis done months ago ? This decision of the council means that whatever chance the residents had of securing electric light for the houses, will now be delayed owing to the delayed action of the council. I am not putting forth an argument that the streets should be lighted, but the remarks of councillors as they ap peared in the press from time to time show that they have -favoured street lighting, but now that the re sponsibility is to be faced, they shirk tho ca...

The Empire Calls AND CESSNOCK RESPONDS. A Great Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 28 August 1914

Tne Empire Calls AND CESSNOCK RESPONDS. A Great Meeting. In Cessnock nothing is done by halves, and to state that the Patriotic Demonstration held at the Amphi theatre on Weddesday evening was a success would be couching the de scription in a mild form. Everything that would encourage a huge crowd was attended to, 4-ut° the call of patriotism was sufficient in itself to pack the huge enclosure. The atten dance in every way justified the statement that there is no more loyal centre than Cessnock, and when it came to backing up their sentiments by hard cash they were not found wanting. The proceedings were commenced with a torchlight procession which inarched from the School of Arts corner, headed by the Cessnock Band which was 'followed by the military and friendly societies, ^ggw -)n -reaching the Amphitheatre the jfiftjfciaailnibk ? wisontfog*^ -acnom uiodation was taxed.
