DELIVERY OF WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 9 February 1892

DELIVERY OF WOOL. Oua Ilfracombe correspondent writes : Wool agreed for to be delivered in Barcaldine must, if delivered west of that town, be trained to Barcaldine instead of to Rockhampton, as was done last season. This arrangement costs the carrier about 10s. per ton more than when thc wool was consigned straight tlirough to Bockhampton, although making no difference to the stations. Of course there is no injustice done to the carrier by the new arrangement ; it was only in consequence of the wool being consigned such a distance at the one time that they were reaping a benefit which is now pro hibited. The present rate on wool consigned to Barcaldine is about £1 Os, 4d. per ton, and the rate they were before charged for that distance, when consigned to Rockhampton, was 8s. id. per ton, with certain reductions as allowed according to description of wool.

LONGREACH ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 9 February 1892

LONGREACH ITEMS. OCR resident reporter, writing on Friday, remarks :-Five or six teams, laden with tim ber, &c., have arrived during the day ; two loaded with Mr. Forbes' furniture, kc., also came in.-A heavy mail arrived from Mutta burra to-day. It contained nearly 1000 letters, and had been detained nearly a fortnight by floods and bad roads.-Mr. Blaze, thc contrac tor for Mr. T. Forbes' hotel, iuforms nie that he will have the building completed early next week.-Several cases of petty larceny have taken place in town during the past fortnight ; but up to the present thc tliieves ? have man aged to elude the police. As the town is at present infested with a number of questionable characters, a little extra vigilance on the part of the police would, no doubt, have the effect of making these gentry desist, if not clear out altogether.

ISISFORD ITEMS. Ons correspondent writing on February 4tfi says: It is a great pity that tliere is no Divisional Board or Municipality herei the mobs of goats who make parts of our streets very obnoxious, from the well-known effluvia, are certainly a nuisance that should bo put down. There is no tqx on goats or dogs here, and I am cer tain that if ail owners of the goats and dogs had to pay a tax of say 2s. per head, there would be any amount of money to make a decent street with.-I notice a large number of men camped about the town on the lookout for work, but until shearing starts they will, 1 am afraid, have very little show of getting it.-There seems to be little or no anxiety as to who shall be our next member, people evidently thinking that whatever man may represent us will make very little difference to the prosperity of the country.

TYPHOID FEVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 9 February 1892

TYPHOID FEVER. ANOTHER typnoia lever patient, irom iiong reach was received into thc Victoria Hospital, at Barcaldine, last week. The surgeon in forms us that the patient had been left too long without relief, and peritonitis lias super vened. We hope in future that when cases of this malignant fever arc brought under the notice of any person who may read these lines, that they will at once insist upon the patient being removed to the nearest hospital. We publish next week a memorandum from the late Dr. William (juli, M.D., who successfully attended the Prince of Wales during Iiis illness, in which simple rules are laid down for the ' treatment of typhoid patients.

AN INTERESTING OBSERVATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 9 February 1892

' AN INTERESTING OBSERVATION. AFTER the clouds passed from the sky on Saturday evening last, a very interesting phenomena was visible in the western heavens. The planets Venus and Jupiter, at their bright est, might have been noticed so close together that the eye became incapable of separating thc two bodies. The conjunction lasted for the briefest possible period, and probably the meteorological observer at Barcaldine noted thc exact time of contact and separation. The latter would have been about 7-58 p.m. The opportunities for this observation are by no means frequent. The last occasion when such a favorable one occurred was in August 1826.

STOCK & STATION REPORT. CHAMPION Office, Monday, 10 p.m. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 9 February 1892

STOCK fr STATION REPORT. CHAMPION Office, Monday, 10 p.m. THE weather this week has been made pleasant by cool easterly to south-easterly winds. On Saturday a thunderstorm came up rapidly from tiie south, but not much rain fell. The country round about is looking well, but a heavier fall of rain is wanted to fill tho tanks and start the rivers running. Business is dull and will be under the new system of shearing, for instead of commencing first week in January it will be the middle of March before thc first sheds go to work. This has been caused prin cipally by thc strike last year, which delayed the shearing on all the early sheds, and con sequently the sheep on those stations ore not yet full fleeced. However, there will be plenty of work when once a start is made, for of course thc number of sheep has greatly in creased this year, and the wool clip is likely to bc tho heaviest yet sent from the Central district. Thc wool received in Barcaldine during the week consisted of 100 ba...

Death in the Bush. REPREHENSIBLE CONDUCT OF LENGTHSMEN. WE hare to report this week another of those sad tragedies which periodically take place in the interior of Queensland, whereby human beings perish in the most awful agony even within reach of assistance. In the present instance the unfortunate man died iu the bush not two hundred yards distant from where some railway men and their families were camped, and within hear ing of his terrible cries for help. The par ticulars are as follows:-Last week Mr. Mackenzie, the contracter for tho artesian bores on the Tara grazing farms, hod occa sion to put somebody in the place of Mr. M'Kaill, whose collar bone had been fractured by an accident. He therefore went out to the No. 8 bore on Tara with Mr. Archibald Ralston, who bad previously been engaged boring at Bowen Downs. Balston had been drinking rather heavily for a short time previous, but had recovered. On Sunday Mr. Mackenzie, with Mr. Ralston, drove over in a buggy to the 21-mile,...

^ |ta and tatnmtfa. ÀT the annual meeting of the War rego Pastoral Association, held at Charleville on the 10th ultimo, everything passed off satisfactorily. It was unanimously resolved that a letter of condolence should be sent to Lady Murphy on the death of her son. THE sequel to the peculiar charge preferred against two girls at Toowoomba of stealing from a dwelling, appears in the local Chronicle. The girls, named Hilda and Eileen Lamer, were brought np at the Police Court. The Police Magistrate, after giving the girls a severe warning, discharged them both.

Round Camp Fire [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 9 February 1892

THE company again assembled round the fire, all save Milligan, who had gone to look for a " dodgasted croc" that had strayed away. The day had been unusually trying, and one and all seemed glad to rest under thc umbrageous coolibah in view of a fine lagoon. A bath had proved most enjoyable, and as " the Doctor" had provided a more luscious joint than usual the crowd had enjoyed their evening meal, and were like the blackfellow, careless of wbate'er happened. Somehow none felt particularly inclined for yarning, and doubtless the whole would have dozed off bad not the sand flies and mosquitoes kept things pretty lively. At length Yorkey rose and made a big smoke with boughs, which, although not clearing the atmosphere cleared the carnivorous insects, and a brief respite was enjoyed. At length the subject of blacks was started, and after referring to the story of " The Deof Cook," told by the boss a couple of evenings previously, Bill said he remembered a most comical black fellow on a...
