Under The Roof-Tree. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 31 January 1901
Under The Roof-Tree. 1 From grave to gay — from .lively to severe.' (Bv Deborah.) It is a- curious thing that the sovereign's head upon the coinage is, with a change of reign, altered alter nately from left to right profile. Thus the profile of George TIT. was repre sented as facing the right ; that of George IV as facing the left ; of Wil liam IV as facing the right, and of the late Queen Victoria again as facing the left. '? What mighty tilings from small beginnings prow.' and it was a small beginning that the now well renowned Mudie's Library had. In a small news paper and stationery shop in South ampton Row, in tli.' yoar 1844. the late Mr Charles Mudip lent out cheap books at a penny a volume : and so the present system was begun. Our thoughts are occupied now with the memory of our late grand Queen of whom so much has lieen, aud is being written and said, and a faint de scription of some of her surroundings will be interesting. The pretty little group of buildings in the Frogm...
Our Melbourne Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 31 January 1901
Our Melbourne Letter. (From our own Correspondent.) La Reine est mart. lrwe le Rot. This, or at any rate its English equivalent, lia-s been the substance of most people's conversation during the past week. When the news of Queen Victoria's death first became known, we all felt we had lost an old friend. Few indpfid in the State have ever seen the late Queen, yet the illustrious lady was on the Throne when many now old and gre3'headed men and women were babies, or, at all events, very small children. Sixty-three years is a long time for one person to hold th? dignified position of Ruler, and nevr-r before has it been exceeded in the history of England, and I think I am correct in saying that only twice before since history took definite shape, has any Monarcli had a longer reign. Your younger readers might find it a pleasurable task to find out the names of the; two European Kings whose length of reign exceeded that of the much-lamented Queen Victoria. The daily papers as well as spe...

Ocntli or Mr. John Wagner. Mr. John Wagner, the well-known coach proprietor, died on Sunday afternoon at his residence, Stonington, Glenferrie, at the age of 74, after a painful illness extending over three years. Mr. Wagner, who vvas a native of Canada, was born on an estate which had boon in the posses sion of the family for several genera tions, and was originally a gift of royalty in recognition of the loyal support which the family had rendered to the Throne. When about eighteen years of age lie weut to California to seek liis fortune, and eventually he drifted over to Victoria among the earliest of the gold-seekers. The dif ficulty of transport was one of the most serious that the prospector had to encounter, and Mr. Wagner quickly saw the possibilities in good lines of coaches. He made a start in that direction in 1852, and a few years later had established several lines about Geelong. He went into partnership with Messrs. Hewitt and Co., and married an American lady, a siste...

Losing your hair ? Do you bring out a combfu! each morning? lias it lost its natural brightness ? Is it beginning to look faded and dead ? Do you like this condition of things? Certainly not. Then stop this falling of the liair at once. Stop it before your hair is thin, short, and lifeless. Make your hair beautiful, glossy, silky, abundant. Ayer's Hair Vigor Is a Hair Food. When your liair is well nourished it does not come out. 'Tis weak hair, starved liair, that falls. It's just so with thin hair, short liair, rough hair* Such hair needs feeding. This is why Ayer's Hair Vigor stops falling of the hair. If yonr hair is gray- and you don't care to look at thirty as if you were sixty, then you should use Ayer's Hair Vijror. It always restores color to gray hair, all the dark, rich, beautiful color it had when you. were young. Preoaftd by Dr. J. C. Ayef Co., 'Lowell, Mass., U. S. A.

Narandera Hospital Inquiry. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 4 February 1901
Naraudera Hospital luquiry. The 'Narandera Argus ' comments us follows, on the finding of the com mittee appointed to deal with the charges made against the management of the local hospital : — 'The one redeeming feature about the charces made against the manage ment of the Narandera Public Hos pital is the utter failure of its accusers to establish a single fact in support thereof ; and the promptness and com pleteness of the refutation of the en tire indictment. The whole business is contemptible enough, * but more humiliating to the detractors of the Institution than to those concerned in in its management ; and it offers a striking example of the obligation under which people lie to verify their information before making it the basis of a charge of a serious nature. ' It often happens,' says a well known writer, 'that public men are victimized by the zeal or malice of their informants, who make them the mouth-pieces of slanders which tliev are afraid to utter on their own respon...

In the small group of millionaire slaughters and packers, commonly called the Beef Trust, are the two brothers Cudahy, Michael and Edward, the former living at Chicago, and the latter at Omaha.

At 8 o'clock on the evening of the 18th inst., he set out from his father's fine house to carry some books to a neigh bour in the next block. On the way two men accosted him, threatened him with pistols, and pretended to arrest him, saying they were sheriff s of fficers, and asserting that he was a fugitive from an adioin ing county, where he had stolen money from his aunt. They placed him in a waggon blindfolded him, and bore liim away to a vacant house, tou...
Victorian Gold Jubilee Exhibition. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 4 February 1901
Vicloriiin Jubilee Exhibition. One of the first Exhibitions of the new century, and probably one of the most attractive shows of the new Commonwealth, will be that which it is proposed to open at Bendigo in November next, to commemorate -the discovery of gold in the early fifties. The comprehensive scheme just issued hy the executive committee of the Victorion Gold Jubilee Exhibition Commission is more than ordinarily attractive. It is just half a century ago since old 'Bendigo,' a shepherd . in the service of the original holder of the Ravenswood Run, discovered, while feeding liis flocks - on tlie grassy - slopes of the far-reaching valley of the' Campaspe, traces of the precious metal. The story of the discovery has 'been variously told, with more or less ac curacy, around the camp fire, in song and story, and, shorn of all the garni ture of romance, even recited in the more serious pages of history, but it is now generally accepted that the honor of the discovery lies with the o...
