New Backs for Old. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 15 July 1899
New Backs for Old. Doan's Backache Kidney Pills always do their work. And their work is making new backs out of old. &nbsp; Old backs ache. . ; That is, they seein to ache. It's the kidneys that ache. But the back does.tbe talking. Backache is not all, there is of kidney disorder. '. It's only the starter so to speak. - Urinary troubles follow thick and fast. Excessive urine — very common com plaint. Sediment in urinfr — getting worse. High color and pain in passing,— worse still. Diabetes, Bright's Disease — Death. That's the end. '' Moral. .

Hits, Skits, and Jingles. From the Bulletin Newspaper Co., who publish it, comes along a review copy of the long-expected volume of verse bv the versatile and clever W. T.

A Sensational Sale. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 15 July 1899
A Sensational Sale. It was reported on Friday afternoon of last week after the close of Messrs Goldsbrough, Mort and Co.'s sale that Mr Thomas Gibson's ram, 'The &nbsp; Admiral.' had been sold for the sen- sational figure of 1500 guineas. In- quiry at the offices (says the Tele- graph) of the Company proved that the sale had not been officially reported, but it is believed to be authentic. 'The Admiral' was one of the re- &nbsp; presentative rams of the famous Eskvale (Tasmania) flock, and was &nbsp; brought to Sydney for exhibition pur- poses only. He was penned at the Goldsbrough Mort and Co. 's Circular Quay store during the sale, and at- tracted universal admiration. His purchaser at 1500 guineas is said to be Mr G. F. Simpson, of Nowranie station, near Jerilderie. 'The Ad- &nbsp; miral' was an Eskvale special stud ram, a pure merino, by 'Loyalty,' a &nbsp; son of 'Royal Hero,' and his dam &nbsp; was sired by 'Commotion II.,' by &a...
Cobar Gold Mines. ADDITIONAL PARTICULARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 15 July 1899
Cobar Gold Mines. ADDITIONAL PARTICULARS. In a recent issue of the Herald, a report of the work at the Cobar Gold Mines was published. At the time, our reporter thought he had made a fairly exhaustive job of it, but a visit to the property on Thursday and a conversation with the general mana- ger, Mr John Fox, was productive of additional particulars of interest to our mining readers. The approach to the coal repository has been finished, and a splendid job it is. There will be room for about 200 tons of this fuel, in a most convenient place to the fir- ing end of the two huge boilers in which the steam for working the whole plant is generated. The carts will be able to unload with the great- est ease just where tho coal is wanted. As we moved AROUND THE CYANIDE WORKS the most notable thing to apprise us was the absence of the clatter and clank of the boiler makers' hammers. They finished their work on Thursday, and the large steel vats are now faith- fully rivetted together and cal...
Hospital Finances. COBAR LADIES TO THE RESCUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 15 July 1899
Hospital Finances. COBAR LADIES TO THE RESCUE. The advertisement convening a public meeting of the ladies of Cobar, called for Wednesday afternoon, to discuss Hospital finances, was largely attended.

A sub-committee from the Hospital committee, consisting of Messrs Breden, Leah, Snelson, and Hooper, met the ladies. Mr Breden occupied the chair.

Restdown. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 15 July 1899
Restdown. (From our own Correspondent.) The battery has been pounding away for the last fortnight. It started on dirt from the Victoria Camp, and from the clean-up, I should say it went 9 or &nbsp; 10dwts to the ton. This last two days Messrs Caldwell and Spain have put through a 6-ton parcel from No. 1, &nbsp; east of the Good Friday. They had not finished cleaning up at the time of writing, but, from the look of the plates, it should go 2½ or 3oz to the ton. The tank is holding water very well, and the battery runs beautifully. Mr H. Goodwin has started work on the Girl in Blue, which, with the ex- ception of No 1, north of the Reward, is the only claim working on the field at present.
Topics of the Week. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 15 July 1899
Topics of the Week. Reid has produced another surplus. It may be genuine, or it may not, but people in general are desirous of be lievinc it is genuine. DurinK the past few years our public finances have beon managed in such a way that the production of surpluses has been one of tho easiest achievements imagin able. What we mean by this is that it has been the habit to debit to Loan funds large sums that should have been debited to the ordinary revenue. The money paid for the erection of many wooden bridges, and for some other works of a non-productive character, has been charged against loans. Under such a system deficits in connection with the Consolidated Fund enn easily be avoided. Never theless the state of the public finauces must be regarded as satisfactory, and both the Treasurer and the country are to be congratulated on that fact. It is also pleasing to notice that the balance sheets o' Victoria, South Aus tralia, and Queensland for the year that ended on the 30th ultimo a...

JODDREL THE BARBER. AN OLD STORY RE-TOLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 15 July 1899
JODDREL THE BARBER. AN OLD STORY RE-TOLD. Many years ago there lived in the neighbour- hood of Bishopsgate-street a barber of the name of Louis Joddrel, a singular kind of man, even for his calling. He was but a poor man when he first arrived, and lind little or nothing to enter the house with ; and what wns a great mystery, was, how he contrived to. obtain possession of the tene ment he inhabited. But he not only did so, but he also obtained credit for repairs he had done, and then tho place begun to assume something of a business-like appeurnnce, and one morning, much to the astonishment of the neighbour hood, Louii Joddrel's wife appeared in the shop. Louis Joddrel lived hero miny years, and throve, though nobody knew how. It was a mystery, for everybody said that his customers were not numerous he charged too much— they were select rather than otherwise. Tho barber, iu person, mi tail, and dark iu his complexion, aud a very aotive, aud it was .believed, a powerful man. ? Tbe exp...
The Stud Sheep Sales. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 15 July 1899
The Stud Sheep Sales. The stud sheep sales, which opened on Monday of last week and concluded on Friday, realised, notwithstanding the adverse season, the grand total of £39,373 17s, in addition to which one ram, The Admiral, was sold privately for 1500 guineas. The total is made up as follows: — Goldsbrough, Mort & Co., 2810 sheep, £27,105 15., ; Wea- ver, Perry, and Co., 882 sheep, £6069 18s 9d ; Hill, Clarlt, and Co., 688 sheep, £5056 0s 6d ; Pitt, Son, and Badgery, 87 sheep, £1142 8s. Good judges agree that the result of the sales means the introduction of a lot of new and valuable blood into tho flocks of New South Wales, and bene ficial effects in the wool clip may reasonably be expected. It was generally anticipated when the stud sheep sales were opened that the disastrous drought experienced in recent years would operate detriment ally on the prices received for the sheep. But the results attained by ; Messrs Goldsbrough, Rfort and Co., ! Ltd., at their annual sales,...
THE NEW MASTER AT THE MILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 15 July 1899
THE NEW MASTER AT THE MILL. Mr. Paul Hayton-Enderby walked into the office at the mill with the air and consciousness of a person of much importance. &nbsp; It was tho first time he had passed through that polished mahogany door with the know ledge that hn was the chief pirtner of the world-famed Eudorbr manufacturing oonct-ru. And us tho final return uuder his father's will, which he had only received the afteruoou be fore, showeil him ta be possessed of property vslued at £237.000 ; it was pardonable that he should enter tho office that morning with an air of assurance which reminded every member of tho stafi who saw him, that from that time It was remarkable how sympathetio was the feeling of uueasiuess which made itself felt throughout the office the instant Mr, Paul walked in. Thero was not a single employee in tbe whole place who did not find himself seized with u vague apprehension of something un pleasant which would be the early product of the uew control. For it wa...
DYING CONFESSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 15 July 1899
DYING CONFESSIONS. ' Although the public seldom hear of them, dying confessions of the most strange and startling character are often made by our patients,' said one of the head nurses of a great metropolitan hospital. 'I have known many cases in which men and &nbsp; women, apparently paupers, have at the last extrimity informed us that they belonged to rich and aristocratic families, and have re- quested us to communicate with their relations. What do you think of a miserable, faded old woman, brought from one of the most poverty stricken streets in London, turning out to be the sister of a marquis? &nbsp; 'Ouly a few mouths back a man was ' brought here from a miserable lodging— the complaint from which lie wus suffering Wing greatly aggravated by sturvatiou.

A Tricky Customer. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 15 July 1899
A Tricky Customer. A wag went into a fish shop, and asked the proprietor if he had two sixpences for a shilling. The proprietor, being a very obliging man, answered, ' Yes, with pleasure,' and handed over the two sixpences. 'I'll give you the shilling when I have one,' replied the intruder, walking out of the shop, leaving the proprietor too astounded to stop him.
Football. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 15 July 1899
Football. In our football news last week an error appeared with regard to Mr Fred Clifton. It was stated that he captained the Cool- gardie footballers against Perth. Matters should have been reversed, as Mr Clifton had the honor of being the captain of the Perth players. The local footballers intend fulfilling their promise of visiting Nyngan, but the date has yet to be arranged. It is probable that it will be in the first week in August. The players seem very enthusiastic about going, so there should be no difficulty in getting a very good fifteen. An attempt is also being made to get Bourke to pay that long promised visit to Cobar. Away back in the winter of 1896 a &nbsp; Cobar fifteen visited Bourke and enjoyed a glorious reception and a fairly-bad defeat. &nbsp; At the banquet enthusiasm ran high and it &nbsp; did seem as if all Bourke were anxious to &nbsp; come across to the copper city. However, that is nearly three years ago, and our Bourke f...
