COBAR. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 15 April 1898

C 0 B A R. Wrightville has been connected by telephone to Cobar, but the line can only be used for transmitting messages at telegraph rates. Mr John Hunt, we are given to definitely understand, will conteBt this electorate in the interests of Pro tection at the coming election. The local Pastures and Stock Board are agitating for emus to be classed as noxious animals, owing to the damage done by them to rabbit proof fencing and lambs. Rain is badly needed for paBtoral pursuits, and if it doeB not fall soon it will be too cold for the grass to grow. The prolonged drought which this | district is experiencing makes the1 outlook for pastoral pursuits exceed ingly gloomy. To be of service for making grass rain will have to fall very soon, else the cold weather will be upon us and it will be too cold for the grass to spring. Mine tanks are yet well supplied along the reef.

The Serious Illness of Mr. Dan Barry. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 15 April 1898

There is no man with whom the theatrical and theatre-going public of AuQtralaaia are better acquainted than Mr. Dan Barry, the popular actor manager of the Alexandra Theatre, Melbourne, Recently one of our representatives paid a visit to him at his office, and he courteously granted a request for a few minutes con versation.

At nieht my sleep was restless and of no recuperative benefit, and my illness commenced to tell on me so seriously that I consulted a medical man.
