Age no Bar. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 22 July 1899
Age no Bar. It does not enter into the question. Simply a matter of condition. You may have it and not know it. You may be young, you may be old. Symptoms are the same in both. A babe with weak kidneys has backache. A man of 60 or 70 with weak kid- neys has backache. That's the way it talks with all ages. Doan's Backache Kidney Pills cure the babe and man. That's the way they do with all ages. No wonder though, they're made for it. They could'nt cure a simple case of colic. But they cure bad cases of kidney trouble. The worse the case the more they work, Whether for young or old. They never result in less than' cure. If your back aches try them. Mr John Hutton, of Talbragar st., Dubbo, says : I am a married man aged 46, and have been in Dubbo for 9 years. I suffered from kidney dis ease. On one occasion whi st riding through the bush I was thrown against a tree, and I think this was the origin: of my trouble. My state some years ago was very bad, when I was ac; customed to pass bloo...
IVANHOE. A TOWNSHIP NEAR THE PLAINS. SOME " ARCADIAN" REMINISCENCES. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 22 July 1899
IVANHOE. A TOWNSHIP NEAR THE PLAINS. SOME 'ARCADIAN' REMINIS- &nbsp; CENCES; (by backblocker.) As the Cobar Herald circulates rather largely in and around Ivanhoe, which township, as your back-country readers are aware, is situated on the &nbsp; main road between Mossgiel and Wil- cannia, a few brief particulars con- &nbsp; cerning general topics hereabouts, may not, perhaps, be altogether un- interesting to your Cobar and adja- cent readers. The township itself, though more or less picturesquely lo- cated, has, like most other places in the drought stricken pastoral regions, suffered very considerably, financially and otherwise, through the late phe- nomenally protracted four years dry seasons which have passed over this district. The town depends entirely for its existence upon the large sta- tions which environ tbe place; and, &nbsp; it is only natural to expect that, when these concerns suffer appalling disas- tors from fearful mortality amongst a...
A Neighborly Act. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 22 July 1899
A Neighborly Act. What has not been written and said of our neighbors? The truth of the &nbsp; old adage that 'Familiarity breeds &nbsp; contempt' is often unmistakably brought home to us by our next-door neighbor. When one starts to philoso- phise it dawns ,upon him that if he were to obey the old injunction to 'Love all men,' and act up to it by &nbsp; refusing to make the second party to a quarrel, there would be fewer disagree- ments. But neighbors are graded, ?and there are many good ones whose acts of kindness do not always come to light. Here is an interesting in stance of what one thoughtfully and kindly, _ disposed to another cm do. . THe following is told by Miss Ada Berthold, who has at ditto cut times been a valued member of. Mr Harry Eickards' Company, anrl Mr Henry Bracy's Operatic Com hi ation. Miss , Berthold resides fit CO Tivoli Eoad, South Yarra, Mi llourno. In answer to an. inquiry mnde of her she snid : — 'My professional duties lately to...
Topics of the Week. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 22 July 1899
Topics of the Week. Many have been the complaints made through the press and otherwise regarding the mining laws of New South Wales. This it has been ar- gued by competent authorities, is a great deterrent to the incoming of Eng- lish capital to our colony. But as these laws apply equally to the corn- stalk as to John Bull, they must deter colonial capital if they deter that of the outsider. And that in its turn is responsible for the slow progress mining has made in the colony. At &nbsp; the present time under the mining laws, unless the labor conditions are continually fulfilled, a lease is liable to forfeiture, notwithstanding that perhaps thousands of pounds have, in &nbsp; a few months, been spent thereon in machinery and development. It frequently occurs that properties, on &nbsp; which much faithful work has been done, are jeopardised as soon as the capital runs out. There are, un- doubtedly, many genuine cases where the stringent conditions of the reg...
Local and General [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 22 July 1899
Local and General Member's Work. — Mr W. G. Spence, M.P., has been successful in securing a grant of £100 for clearing the road from Nyngan to Cannonhar, and £50 for the Bourke-Louth road, the work to be gone on with as soon as possible. Relief Works. — Now that rain has fallen the relief works have ceased. The work was all done on the Hillston road, between the Young Australia Hotel and the town. Al- together £86 6s 6d of the Government vote was expended, and in addition to this the work has cost the Cobar Council for super- vision etc , just about £40. The Cobar Council's officers have no reason to be sorry at the conclusion of these works. Fall in Meat. — In this issue Mr W. H. Bannister announces that he intends reduc- ing beef and mutton by one half penny per pound. This, he informs us, is one of the &nbsp; results of the recent rain. There is a nice spring in the paddocks, which will enable him to fatten his own sheep, and give up scrub-cutting, thus reducing his expen...
No title [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 22 July 1899
Smith, who has been committed for trial for alleged libelling John Norton, is to be defended by Mel- bourne Barrister Purves, who has a reputation for bullying. His cross- examination of Norton should be interesting. A German vessel on the way out from Southampton to Java has been relieved of £4,000 in gold, the thieves apparently having got clear away. What with this and the recent similar thievery on the 'Frisco boat, steamboat &nbsp; companies will now be placed on their guard. &nbsp;
Municipal Council. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 22 July 1899
Municipal Council. Tho usual fortnightly meeting of the Cobar Municipal Council was held in the Chambers on Wednesday even- ing. Present : Aldermen Snelson (Mayor), Morrison, James, Kinkead, Duffy, Bailey, Musgrove, Hunt and Hogan. The following petition was received: — We, the undersigned ratepayers of Cobar, beg to draw your attention to the unfairness of having to pay light- ing rates, considering that the nearest light is half a mile away (Mrs Maher's hotel.) We beg that you will either place a lamp somewhere in our vicinity or abolish the rate altogether :— J. Gandy, J. Hutchinson, D. McGregor, W. Purvis, W. G. Jackson, F. Lean, W. Hall, T. Pearce, M. O'Connor and H. Evans. The aldermen decided to erect two lamps in Lewis street between Mrs Maher's Hotel and the Railway Goods Shed. They also decided to erect one lamp in Linsley street, towards the Railway station. OUR VERANDAHS. Mr Bannister's application to re- new the verandah of the Star Hotel was then read. Alderman Bailey ...

Restdown. A few crushings have been put through the Restdown battery. Knight Bros put through 22 tons &nbsp; from the Victoria claim, for about 8 dwts to the ton.

Gilgunnia. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 22 July 1899
Gilgunnia. (From our Correspondent.) At the local Court held on the 14th inst. only one case was heard. This was a dispute over a mineral claim at Mount Allen. Joe Riley v D. R. Wall. From the evidence it appears that a Mr Sorenson, of Mount Allen received beforehand, notice from the Depart- ment of cancellation of mineral lease No 5, of 20 acres, Mount Dromedary. He then took possession of the ground and held it for some time. On the 10th of February last Mr Riley re- pegged the same on behalf of Soren- son, self, and others, and applied for a mineral lease for the same. Mr D. Wall wrote to the Department ob- jecting to the granting of lease, on the ground tbat he and Harry Wright pegged the ground and held possession of same. Henry Wright stated in his evidence, that Wall and himself peg- ged out a Mineral prospecting area of 40 acres; that after a time Wall left &nbsp; without his consent, and did no work on that ground since, to his know- ledge ; that these 40 acres were...
Telegrams. Friday. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 22 July 1899
Telegrams. Friday. In the Assembly on Wednesday, Mr Norton made charges against Mr Reid of corruption in connection with the purchase of the Rosehill Railway land from the Bank of New Zealand for certain financial accommodation. Mr Reid effectively, and to the unanimous satisfaction of the House, showed that his dealings in connec- tion with the matter were all fair and above board. On Thursday Mr Crick resumed the debate on the Address-in-Reply. He declares that he voted for the pre- sent scheme of Federation against his conscience. Mr Meagher spoke in favor of the Government programme. Ultimately the debate was adjourned till Tuesday. During tho discussion several mem- bers referred to Mr Norton's charges against the Premier. &nbsp; Messrs Crick, Wise, and See de- nied that they had privately urged Norton to attack the Premier. The well-known Heyfield estate, in Gippsland, Victoria, property of the late James Tyson, was offered for sale yesterday, but was passed in at £6 1...
MINING. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 22 July 1899
MINING. The Young Australia tank has about 10ft of water in it, having been very well favored by the rain. &nbsp; The Occidental cleaned up this week from mill and cyanide, getting 504 ounces gold, equal to £1,700. The directors of the Mount Pleasant mine are considering tribute proposals. Nothing definite has yet been decided on. Mr W. Longworth arrived in Cobar last week. He left for Nymagee on Tuesday, accompanied by Mr Clapin, surveyor for the syndicate, from Lithgow. At Cobar Gold mines and the Ches- ney, the new machinery and prepara- tory work is proceeding with all speed. In about another month the Cobar &nbsp; Gold Mines will be ready for a start. The peculiar sound of that foghorn has been arresting the attention of townspeople during the week. The Nymagee copper mine tank was almost filled by Saturday's rain, and they have now 8 or 10 month's supply of water. Nymagee has been most unfortunate for a very long time, but it does seem now that the spell is bro...
LONDON. THURSDAY [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 22 July 1899
LONDON. Thursday The Transvaal franchise proposals have finally passed the Volksraad. They will some into operation as soon as gazetted. The Loyalists in Johannesburg and Capetown are disappointed that Great Britain should have accepted compro- mise. They fear the concession is il- lusory. Tho people of Natal, however, are more satisfied. Mr J. M. Scott, Auctioneer, held a successful sale on Saturday last for Mrs A. D. Millar. Despite the heavy rain, there was a good attendance and the whole was sold at very satisfactory prices.

Football. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 22 July 1899
Football. During the week the local footballers re- ceived an invitation from the Nyngan team to play the return match at Nyngan next Wednesday. The notice was very short and a telegram was sent to Nyngan asking them to postpone it a week. The reply came that if left till then shearing arrangements would affect their team, so the Cobar boys decided to overcome inconveniences and accept the invitation. Practice is to be indulged in this afternoon, and a fair team should enter the field. The Nyngan team promises Cobarites a high old time and an impartial referee, which is most gratifying. On the same day the juvenile team of Cobarites will journey to Nyngan and try conclusions with the Nyngan boys. So, all things considered, matters in Nyngan should be fairly jolly for two days. The following players will represent the Cobar Our Boy's Football Club against Nyngan, at, Nyngan, on Wednesday next: — Messrs J. Butler, T. Dellaway, R. McCarthy, G. Penhall, J. Holmes, J. Long, E.
