Round the Camp Fire [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 24 May 1892

The country had dried up nicely after the rainf, and the BOBS decidcd to make a move. Upou Joe's invitation all hands, save a couple left to watch the monkeys, went to the boundary rider's hut, and a very pleasant evening was spent, the company being aug mented by Mr. Philip Banniman, who casu ally dropped in .with ti few bottles of comfort. Mrs. Lloyd was pressed to give a yarn, and after much laughing she said she would tell them about A BABY'S MIGRATIONS. The Rev, Charles, Finney, Vicar of St, John's, Worston, would have been the hap piest of men but for a ritualistic curate lie was tempted to give a title to in a weak and evil hour. The ladies of his parish, thinking the Rev. Charles a hopeless old bachelor, were moved to make to liim the most sympathetic representations to 'lengthen his priceless life and labours by sharing the killing work of his parish with a young and active Curate. Moved, perhaps, by these representations, perhaps by other motives of self-preservation (sinc...

The Western Champion. Vita sine literis mors est. BARCALDINE, TUESDAY, MAY 24,1892. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 24 May 1892

|H* U^tern |jkm|)ion. Vita sine Uteri* mors est. AT the last meeting of the Blackall ( Municipal Council the Mayor die- j covered that the financial condition of ' the Council was in a very bad state. In 1891 only £155 lis. 2d. was re ceived for rates, on which the reduced j endowment of 13s. 4d. in the £ was i paid. The Council by special rateB t lias not been able to pay interest and 1 redemption of IOBIIB, and they owed i the Government now £2846 7s. 2d., j and £81 8s. 3d. for interest and re- ] demption. The Council has to pay ' £310 2B. 2d. yearly in interest and redemption of loan, and it is impossible for the Council to pay that amount yearly and carry on the business of the municipality.

Watch Your Nose! [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 24 May 1892

Watch Your Nose ! Axbeadv the claim is made that one's dis position is outliued by his nose. According to the Buffalo Commercial, large nostrils show courage. People of fearless dispositions breathe fully and freely. All the fiercer animals hare dilated nostrils. The drooping nostril shows histrionic talent. If the nose also droops, it denotes a tragic power, and if only the nostril the capacity is marked for the iatcrpretion of comedy. When the nose is tliin at the bridge 16 shows generosity, while a nose that is thick at the bridge it argues inquisitiveness. When it is ' tiptilted like ' the person is inquisitive, A projecting nose argues a disposition to investigate. It is ahead of the person, as it were, and wants to scent out things. Look at your nose in the glass and see what sort of a person you are any way. If your nose is blue you have a bad circulation, if very pale you have a poor ity of blood, if full of blackLeads, which you can squeeze out, your blood is impure, if you...

Kanakas in Queensland. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 24 May 1892

Kanakas in Queensland. Bruni in the Australasian says:-I have always experienced a feeling of surprise »t the attitude assumed by "the working man" towards the employment of kanaka labour in tropical Queensland. When in Mackny some years ago 1 found the tradesmen in the town were strongly opposed to the employment of kanakas on the plantations, though they knew well enough that without kanaka labor in the caneilelds Mackay would soon revert to cattle country, and the highly-paid white inhabitants would have to migrate elsewhere to find employment. The practice of calling Queensland a slave state because a handful of kanakas are employed on work that Euro peans cannot perform is so silly that I won der it has not long ere this been abandoned; it was, however, again aired at a late meeting of tlio Trades Hall Council. The treatment of these kanakas is at times spoken of as if it were slave-driving. Now, tiie kanaka is like a child; treat him kindly but firmly and he will do his work c...
