No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 17 June 1904
THa continued dry weather is causing much alarm among the farmers ofthis dis triot, and it is feared that most of the seed sown will rot in the ground. A GENERAL meeting of the members of the File Brigade is to be held to-night. . THERE were to applications lodged at -the land office since our last report. A LAtoE number of farmers were aforded an opportunity yesterday to inspect the Pearsob's Aome poison cart, when an exhibi tion of its work was given at the sale yards. T'xt RRE.: W. M. SMirTh has decided to leave Queanbeyan at the end of the present month. The name of hisaucoessor is not yet known. The many friends the reverend gentleman has made during his sojourn here will regret to hear the news of his departure.

MICHELAGO. BICYCLE AND ATHLETIC SPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 17 June 1904
MIOHELAGO. (Prom Our Correspondent) BICYCLE AND ATHLETIO'SPORTS. BIoro.a and athletic sports were held here on Friday last and passed off very suooessfully. The " attendance was up to the average and the pro. ceedings concluded without mishal or unpleas antne3s. A programme of six events was well contested. The superior form shown by the brothers, J. and. D. Commins prevailed over the other competitors and they secured the treater portion of the prize money. Several of the competitors showed a dash of pace, but were lacking in condition, and it is probable they r may be heard of on a future occssion. The entries for each event filled up very well, and a good number faced the starter for every race. The principal event-the Miohelago Wheel Race -was annexed by J. Commins. The Slow Bicycle Race was rather a novelty and attracted a good deal of attention, being won by J. O Commins. Twenty seven entries were received for throwing at the stump, which eventually was t won by 0. Reeves, who...
CLOSER SETTLEMENT. TO THE EDITOR [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 17 June 1904
CLOSER SETTLE'IENT. TO MTE EDITOR rSI,-Referring to Mr. J. Southwell's letter on the above subject I would ask the above gent. if his views are antagonistio to closer settlement will he agree with me on the under mentioned Ipoints ? There is always more trouble over one thing and an.ther, than there is with anything else. He must also agree that the storekeepers, merohants, and tradeepeople would be delighted with oloser settlement when bills and accounts become due; and Mr. J. S. will surely coin. cide with me in saying that most engaged couplds long for closer settlement and he cannot deny that it would to a very great degree solve the problem of the declining birth rate; alsn that closer settlement would perform wonders in ridding the country of the rabbit, fox, cookatoo, crow, and other undesirable pests; and, I dare suggest, that those Sunday picnics, which "REeedy Oreek " held in holy horror, go a long way to consummating closer settlement in a few individual cases, therefore,...

CLOSER SETTLEMENT. M~r John.Southwell, of " Willow Bank," Queanbeyan, hands us the following letter for publication : " Gundagal, 2nd. June; 1904. DIan Mn. SorrTEwELL,--I read with inter. eat and approval your letter in the Queen. beyan Ase of May 27th last. I also road Mr. Hungerford's letter, which opened the controversy-.' Believing myself in a position touenpply some points on the subject, gained by my personal observation, and anxious to rendo r you a little assistance on acconnt of your views and mine coinciding to, a great extent, and the temperate common sense anti-socialistic tone of your letter having won my sympathy, I am prompted to write yon, and consequently trust you will pardon me for my obtrusiveness.

MAJURA [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 17 June 1904
MNAJURA (Prom a Correspondent), Nor noticing any correspondence from this little corner appearing in the AGE, I have made up my mind to contribute a few brief notes. Well, Mr. Editor, this little farming com munity has been a bit lively of late. Firstly, we had a political meeting, which caused quite a stir, and no sooner had that quiet ened down than some naughty fellow took it into his head to go and break into the local public school, and after knocking the time about, armed himself with a fire stick and tried his hand at reducing the building to ashes but failed in his att."mpt - to his sorrow, I suppose. The excitement reached fever heat when the police appeared on the scene to invest;gate matters. However, no arrest was made, and I understand that no hue has yet been picked out as the snspeced guilty party. A day's sports will be held here on the 29th instant, in aid of the Majura Public School Syllabus. Programme and full particulars will be advertised in the next issue of yo...

Read the Sign Post. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 17 June 1904
Read the- sign Post, Read the sign post rightly. The sign-post of health is thback. You must know its aches and pains. You must know the language ofthe back When you know It the Sign post reads: Backaohe is kidney ache. Lame back is lame Kidneys. Weak back is weak kidneys. . Make the back cure the kidneys." Only one sure way to do this. Take Dean's Backache Kidney Pills. A local citizen adds his endorsement here.. Mr. Nichol McIones, Antil St., Queanbeyan, says : "Some time ago my son hurt his back when lifting a bag of corn and for a time he was very bad with the pain. We had Doean's Backache kidney pills in the house and he used them. He also had aliniment rubbed in. A few days treatment in this way cured him.. He says the pills are first rate for pains in the small of the back. We obtained this remedy at H. R. Pollard's Pharmacy." Success has brought up many imitations of Dean's Pills, but there is nothing just as good as the remedy which Mr. McInnes recom mends-Doan's Backache K...
JUDICIAL SEPARATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 17 June 1904
JUDICIAL SEPARATION. IN the Divorce Court Sydney, on Monday, Elizabeth Whiting, formerly Gyde, petitioned for a judicial separation from Joseph Edwin Whiting, on the ground of cruelty. Peti- tioner said she married the respondent, a police constable, at Broken Hill, in March 1900 at NorthbGoulburn. She was a school teacher at the time, but was at present earn- ing her living by sewing. They lived until 1902 at Young, where her husband was as- sistant in a grocery store; and since then she resided with her parents at Braidwood. Re- spondent threatened to shoot her father and mother for harbouring petitioner. He asked her to get a revolver, so that he could shoot her. He did not have a home for her, and he used to sleep in the pigstye, belonging to petitionier's parents. Respondent tried to get their child, and once he asked her to get a blanket, and walk the country with him. She said she would live with him if he got a home for her, but that she would not live with him in the street...

'I don't know why I'm talking to you like this-I oughtn't to, of course I People usually talk to you about the name of wife in quite a different strain, don't they ?' ' Yes,' admitted Barbara-' Bobbie and Billie Searle do.' Mr. Johnson started as if an explosion had occurred at his feet. ' W-w-whatP' cried he.

THE METEORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 17 June 1904
THE METEORS. The meteors seen at Marulan on Monday night were also seen at Sydney and Mar- rickville, several residents of the latter place feeling certain that the balls of fire fell not more than a mile away. It is to be noticed that it was also thought at Marulan that they were not more than the same distance away. As Marulan is 114 miles south of Sydney, the reports of those who saw the &nbsp; meteors is a distinct testimony as to the deceptiveness of the phenomena. There is nothing unusual in the fall of brilliant meteors, but Mr. H. Hunt, Acting Metero- logist, says it is interesting to observe how the different people who saw them on Mon- day from different points were deceived as &nbsp; to the distance they were away from them.

DEATH OF MRS. CHARLES SMITH. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 17 June 1904
DEATH OF MRS. CHARLES SMITH. IT is with regret that we have to report the death of Mrs. Charlee Smith, which took place at the residence of her brother (Mr. William Lenane) in Campbell Street, Quean- beyan, at 6 o'clock last Tuesday evening. The deceased lady had been ailing from consumption, and, the malady assuming a dangerous stage, sought the care of the local medical gentleman, and came to Queanbeyan about three or four weeks ago from Williamsdale, in which district she had resided for a lengthy period. Mrs. Smith had only reached the 48th year of her life and leaves a widower, three daughters, and two sons to mourn their lose. The remains were removed by train yesterday morning to Michelago, where they were interred in the Roman Catholic portion of that cemetery. The coffin was a richly mounted cedar one, bearing the following inscription on the plate :-"ELLEN SMITI, died June 14th, 1904, aged 48 years." The funeral arrange- ments were carried out by Mr. H. Lazarus of Queanbey...
