Weeks ago

By Mel Robertson

The following is a regular weekly column of news clippings from old Burford papers, researched and edited by Mel Robertson. Mr. Robertson welcomes any suggestions from readers for this column.

July 1st 1886

Northfield: Mr Paul Huffman's orders for cheese boxes have been so large he has been compelled to get another machine put in his factory. He has made 7000 already

and expects to make 40,000 more.

Cathcart: A number of masons and other workmen are repairing the damage done to Mr. Farrington's house by the recent storm. NOTE: This is apparently Mrs. Sheridan's beautiful houp west of Cathcart that was built in 1883. The Burford "Times" has no report of the storm mentioned or the damage sustained.

Burford: Court No 132 C.O.F. held an open meeting on Wed night. An excellent feast of strawberries was provided. Dr. Johnston took the chair and T Lloyd-Jones, Gilbert French and Alfred Ledger gave speeches. J.H. Whale and one or two others were asked to speak but owing to their efforts with the strawberries they could not appear. Campbell's orchestra and Master Middleton provided the music.
