ITEMS OF INTEREST. [ORIGINAL AND SELECTED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 29 January 1894

ITEMS OF INTEREST. V [Obiginal and Selected.] In regard to counterfeiting, it is perhaps not generally known that owing to the great reduction of late in the value of silver, the heavier silver coins can be manufactured of equally good metal as the genuine and yet leave to the maker a very handsome profit. We have reason to believe that this is being done in Australia. About 20,000 bags of wheat have been exported from Moama via Echuoa to Sydney during the past; fortnight. One of Toole's greatest practical jokes was as follows: He once gave a supper to 80 of hia friends, and wrote a note to each one of them priva tely beforehand, asking him whether he irould be so good as to say grace, as no clergyman would be present. It is said that the faces of these 80 men as they rose in a body when Toole tapped on the table as a signal for grace was a sight which will never be forgotten. With regard to the competition for freight in stituted by carriers with the railways on various country roa...

ECHOES OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 29 January 1894

ECHOES OP SPORT. I know but few more remunerative animals than old Royal has been, but Mr. Charles Page, who owns him, is thoroughly deserving of his good fortune, for he is a genuine sportsman whose Btraight-going and geniality has made him a general favourite. The day when Mr. Page pur chased Royal out of a Selling Race he won £20 on thBt event, and as he only gave JB29 for the son of Lecturer, the cost actually was but £9. Since then the old grey has won two Welter Handicaps, six selling events and the Anniversary Handicap at Rutherford, making in all over £200 in prizes, and as Mr. Page is not afraid to put down his pieces when he has a chance, it is probable I am well within bounds when I eay that Royal has earned .£500 since he has entered the Newcastle sports man's stable. I am sorry to Bay that Lady Trenton has shown signs of lameness in one of her hind legs, and will have to be treated to a lengthened spell. As Cape Pigeon iB also somewhat of a cripple whilst Cassario and i...

On Matrimony. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 29 January 1894

On Matrimony. Remember that you take her for better and for worse, and do try to realise that there is in most lives a good deal more of the worse than o£ the bettor. In fact it would be expedient to repeat to your self that you are taking her for the worse— the better is hardly worth bringing into account. Finally, we would take you both aside to a quiet corner of the room, and there we would sav: iiiess you. Fay no heed to us, nor to anyone in the world so long as you are quite sure ofyoursolf and of eack other. But be careful that you are quite sure. You are taking a huge step in life, but life is not a stationary paatitne. One must stop forward sometimes, and ic is better to make a 'ood honest stride than to sneak tremblingly along with faltering feet.. You will hwo a little sunshine and a vast quantity of shadow, but the sunshine will be brighter if you share it, the shadow less dense if you walk hand in hand through it. Troubles will come, big ones and little ones. Please God ...

LATE GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 29 January 1894

LATE GENERAL NEWS. In the hurricane which swept over Eoeburne, Western Australia, on the 9th instant, 27 persons lost their lives and many small vessels were wrecked. At the end of last year the credit balance of Western Australia was £30,768. The railway revenue continues to decrease. This is especially the case with the passenger traffic, the receipts from thiB branch alone being about £8000 per month less for the last quarter of 1893 than for the corresponding period of the previous year. A race in connection with the Port Jackson Sail ing Club was sailed on Saturday afternoon, and was won by the Itonia, with Mantura second, and Ida third. Included in the eargo of the B.M.S. Valetta, which left Melbourne for London on Saturday, was 705 tons of butter. Henry James Eowland, a prisoner in the Ballarat Gaol, who was undergoing a sentence of three months for vagrancy, hanged himself with his belt yesterday morning. On Saturday the Customs receipts amounted to ' £1258. Towards this the...

A Weather Forecast. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 29 January 1894

A Weather Forecast. Mr. Samuel Nathan, of Eedfern, who has proved himself to bo a weather prophet of no mean order, writes as follows : — Saturday, January 27th. There is nothing curious in the weather. The late easterly winds sometimes come in the begin ning of the present month, and have lasted ten days and more, but not often, finishing with a blow from S.W. to S.E. and E.S.E. Pour nights back, at 11 p.m., we received a current of wind from S.W., although a S.E. and easterly wind was blow ing, yet the S.W. was fetching up the rain and has done bo, with E.S. and E.N.E. at times. This breaks up the supposed drought, and through the whole year now we are subject to good changes. In February and March rain will last 3ix, nine, ten, and twelve days on at a time.

Battle Scenes. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 29 January 1894

Sattle Scenes, General C. H. Howard, U.S. army, has com municated to the English' Peace Society a paper in which he remarks :— Crowded into one summer morning of battle were ne or two personal incidents which may help to give the true significance to historic figures — so many wounded — so many killed. Before our brigade was fully engaged, in passing to the left, where firing had begun, I met four men tenderly bearing in a blanket a wounded officer. In a moment I learned it was the colonel in command of the 81st Pennsylvania regiment, — my friend, a beloved and trusted officer. He was already dead. A little later in the morning, my own brother re' eiyed a rifle ball in the elbow joint. It went crashing through the joint and lodged in the upper bone of the arm. His arm was amputated that ? afternoon. How little does the simple statement of these facts convey, as to the pain endured, as to the agony of the hearts in the far off home ; as to a maimed body for life in the one instance, ...

ABERDEEN CHILLING AND FREEZING WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 29 January 1894

ABERDEEN CHILLING AND FREEZING WORKS. Sir,— As your leading article of the 26th instant, referring to the Freezing Meat Industry, mentions Aberdeen, I beg to correct some of your figures. Up to 31st December laBt, the Australian Chilling and Freezing Company, Limited had exported over 350,000 carcases, besides a large quantity of tinned meats, and had slaughtered over three quarters of a million of sheep, instead of the 486,000 you mention as slaughtered and 150,000 frozen. I do not suppose it matters much from a Statisti cal point of view, but it is as well to be approxi mately correct when dealing with figures. Yours faithfully, W. A. BENN, Manager the Australian Chilling and Freezing Company, Limited. Aberdeen, Jan. 27, 1894.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. WOMAN SUFFRAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 29 January 1894

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. WOMAN SUFFRAGE. Sib,— I would respectfully direct the attention of your readers to a couple of letters appearing under the above heading in your impression of Saturday. as the pair, when taken together, make a very in structive and entertaining study, also an interesting contrast. One of them — the first one — comes from a ' Working Woman,' also evidently a lady, and one who can write temperately and without angen even when discussing what she must consider a great injustice to her sex ; and the second epistle comes from a certain ' Bluebeard' — I beg his pardon—' Borneo,' who takes it upon himself to say just what position in life the other should fill, irrespective of the desires and ambitions of her own soul. It will be noticed that, in thus disposing of woman's earthly destiny, ' Romeo' makes no distinct claim to possessing any recognised right for bo acting. He simply pushes her along on the strength of his wishing to ' see her in her own place' — he to b...

Poor Triller, a firsb rate musician, had come bo bhe unluoky decision of starting on his profes sional career in a little town where pianists were more pientntul than doctors, and now_ m spite of his introductions, he was well-nigh famishing for lack of pupils.

PATERSON v. VACY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 29 January 1894

PATERSON v. VACY. The above old rival clubs met at Faterson on Anniversary Day to try concluBiona in a friendly pome, and, as will be seen telow, it resulted in a decisive victory for Paterson by an innings and 105 runs to spare. The Vacy Bkipper having won the toas Bent their opponents to the wickets, which evidently was a mistake on his part, as 225 runs were scored before the last wicket fell. Studdert, who haB been scoring very consistently this season, contributed 100, this being the second century ever scored in Pateraon, the other being made by J. Tucker eome few yeara ago. The batting also of G. Holden 38 (a coming man), W. Tucker SO (the old veteran), G. Kobius 12, (jr. Vogele 15, and E. Cann 10 was very good. Vacy scored 74 in he firat innings, W. Keough showing fine cricket for his 28. J. Wells and Hall slao batted well for their runs. G. Eobins and W. and B. Cann bowled a good length throughout. The second innings proved even more disastrous than the firat, only realizin...

MOUNT VINCENT. Eain, which had been bhreabening bhree or four days prior to Saturday, fell in copious showers on that day, and duiing the early part of the day on Sunday. This welcome rain was much needed, and languishing vegetation is restored to vigourous growth. The threshing machines are bravelling aboub bhis locality, and some very good samples of grain, wheab, oats, ind rye have been turned out. We notice several hundred acres of fairly average land on bhe Mounb Vincenb Esbate, which for the production of bhe above-mentioned cereals could hardly be surpassed. Lands which have been ex hausted by continual cropping when laid down for grazing purposes for four or five years (in case bhey are damaged by water), recover their productiveness only second bo bhe virgin soil.
