TOONGABBIE AND WENTWORTHVILLE. Wierd Words from the above. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 10 August 1895
TOONGABBIE AMD WENT WORTHVILLE. Wierd Words from the above. The oldest resident has been trotted out ; and with trembling lips and furrowed brow he states that since Local Government was first promised, away in the distant past (when Mr. Hugh Taylor wore knickerbockers) and didn t know a big A from tbe track ot a duck) — not since then, has such a winter's drought been. Anyway, the drought is becoming serious in this locality. A great many residents have been drawing water a distance of two or three miles for domestic DurDOses. for some time back ; and if it continues so, much longer, we will liave to lay in a supply of fermented beverages to slake our thirst, and have to subject our soiled linen to the dry-blowing process. Mr. Benson, a new arrival in this looality, and one who has been giving a lot of employment about here since he did come, has had quite an experi ence of late. It happened this way. He sent his man to Parramatta with a Unwin nnJ 1 !??? n An J ^ K frtl. AAHIA lTAA...
A Loss. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 10 August 1895
A Loss. Mr. D. Johnson, of ' The Irishman's Home,' had the misfortune not long sinoe to lose one of his cows. The animal, it seems, was endeavouring to get through a fence, near Fye's Creek, but found it was rather stronger tnan it looked, for in trying to crawl under the rail she broke her back, and in fall ing she slided down the bank, when her head somehow got doubled up under her, with the result that her neck was i also broken.
Select Poetry. MELIORA. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 10 August 1895
Select Poetry. MELIORA. The feeble folk wane through the ages, and careless the Mighty Ones smite them : Who Is there that shall avenge the shedding of innooent blood ? £?er the earth and the sea, the spoiler and 1 slaver triumph, Till the low sobs grow to a shriek, and the tears to a flood. fathomless future ; As it has been, shall it be down to the pitiless end? In dark dens, by the hills, or the sea, long ages the bickering cave-men, Aimed with their sharpened flints, rob and ravish and slay ; The smoke of the Aztec victims steams np from the Mexican albCrs, And the qnivering heart Is torn by the priests from the living breast ; The bearded Assyrian treads on the necks of the vanquished foeman ; The shafts from the chariots pieroe the haddled wretches who fly. On tbe tombs of the Nile's grave lords still marches the dolelul procession — The oaptives go forth to swift death or the llf eloncr doom of the duvn. Laurel -crowned, np the Capitol's steep the heavy -eyed Casar advanoes ;...
An Extra Train. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 10 August 1895
An Extra Train. The residents of this distriot are anxious to have some means of getting home from Sydney by a late train, at least twice a week. At present the con venience only exists for Saturdays ; and considering that tbe southern line people enjoy the boon every night in the week, it is only reasonable and just that we here should have it twice _ a week. Anyhow, the railway authorities are- to be approached on the subject by the Progress Association ; and we wish the latter every success.

Mr. D. O'Reilly and Time Compensation to Publicans. TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 10 August 1895
Mr. D. O'Reilly and Time Com pensation to Publicans. TO THE EDITOR. Sib,— However definite Mr. O'Reilly may bo on some matters, he does not appear to express himself very clearly or definitely on the drink (. question. On other questions, particularly the | j land-tax question, be has posed as a publio educator; but on the drink question (the oTfiAtpqt and most imoortant of all) he seems to be a mere hanger-on or rail-sitter. In ^ your issue ot July 27th, you report him as saying— ' He would so so far as to say that any policy that regarded a publican as necessarily an out oast was an unoharitable and unohristian one.' I cannot understand whv Mr. O'Reilly should ^ go out ot his way to make such a superfluous ▼ statement, for no such policy has ever been proposed in this country, nor, so far as I know, V I in any other.(a) But perhaps he meant any ^ policy that woold outlaw or absolutely prohibit , the liquor traffic. It that be so, he has muoh to learn on this great national questio...
