AFTER a week's spell, a mqvo was made towards Muswcllbrook, whero " the Boss" intending paddocking bis sheep for a week or so before tracking them to further south. Tlie camp was made the next night near the " Kip and Tear Hotel," which was also a mnil stage for Cobb and Co. About 7 p.m. the coach dashed up, the horses putting on quite a spurt as the hotel was sighted. The driver turned out to be an old acquaintance of Milligan's, and he promised to visit the camp and have a chat over old times. Sure enough "old Ned," as the jehu was called, put in an appearance, and a good night's yarning sot in. "Ned" told a little story of his experiences a6 a stage driver in America, which is here reproduced. He called it FOR YELLOW GOLD. When the stage "went light" they ran out the small buekboard, but when there were more than four passengers the big mud wag gon was " put on." This was a buekboard day, for there was not a single passenger. What was more to the point, as the Gold Butte Mining C...

FOURTH AND FIFTH MONTHS. JUNE-JULY. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 7 June 1892

FOURTH AND FIFTH MONTHS. JUNE-JULY. 1 did -but little during tbe nest two months. But little of an exciting or inter esting nature occurred. As cowardly as it may- eeea, I dreaded to pursue tbe strange man who had gained euch supremacy over me. I feared to disobey his warning. I did what some might censure me for doing; I despatched Inspector Byrnes to the effect that Dr. Westinghonse had escaped me ; that he was no longer in England ; I did more; I sent in my resignation. I was not a wealthy man, but I bad been saving during my years of active service, and could afford to live witbont work for some time, nt least. Tbe month of June passed. July, with its burning sun its dusty streets, followed. I passed my time in reading, theatre going, anything that would serve to pass the time, which was beginning to lay heavily upon my hands. I had even lost my interest in the Whitecbapel murder. I knew from the papers that the assassin bad not been cap tured ; I began to feel that be would nev...

A LARGE ORDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 7 June 1892

A LARGE ORDER. SINCE the enlargement of the Champion we have beeu put to considerable inconvenience procuring covers of one color, as in the colonies paper of that description is not manufactured. We then sent to London for it, and obtained the rich geranium color, which now appears and will be continued for the future. The first consignment of two tons arrived by the Jelunga, and was trained up to Uarcaldine on Thursday. We hope the geranium colored journal "will bo warmly welcomed by our largely increasing number of subscribers.

SIXTH MONTH. AUGUST 1 TO 17. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 7 June 1892

SIXTH MONTH. AUGUST L TO 17. I waited in the shadow until tbe faces left tbe window, and the disappearance of the light convinced me I would see them no more that night. I slowly walked home. I arrived at my lodgings as dawn was break ing in the east. My servant was sleeping, so 1 did not awaken him, but threw myself, dressed as I was, npon the bed. I slept until 2 in the afternoon. I did not take my noc turnal walk Ibat night I felt weary, and had no difficulty in sleeping, notwithstand ing that I bad already slept nearly twelve hours of the day. But on the night of the 1st, I again felt a strong desire to be out in the air. Alone with my thoughts, in tbe streets, my footsteps involuntarily led me in the direction of tbe house before which I bad stood so long two nights before, I seemed to be led there by unseen bands. I saw no one this time, however; but this did not seem to cause any surprise to my mind. It seemed to me that I must go to the house, and every night for tbe next we...

THE BLACKALL MEDICAL OFFICER. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 7 June 1892

THE BLACKALL MEDICAL OFFICER. WE have received a communication from Dr. A. Gabriel, surgeon of the lilackall Hospital, . in which he complains that the local paper has : refused publication of some letters, which are said to be signed by over 300 shearers. The ; testimonials as written certainly contain libels i upon the editor of the Blackall paper, and if- - he published them himself he could hardly ; bring an action for defamation against the i printer. So far as the letters are of public ; interest, the first signed, William Johnson, < seems to be a testimonial to the kindness and 1 professional skill of Dr. Gabriel, and hinting \ that if he is interfered with the shed subscrip- I tions to the hospital may be affected thereby, t The other is from Mr. Charles Stewart, who j has been a patient in the hospital, where he i was rapidly cured of an attack of bronchitis, j He also declares that if " a certain class in i Blackall evict the doctor, the shearers will i refuse t...

WHITE GAUDENEKS. ON a recent visit to Black Gin Creek at Longrcacli, we were pleased to notice that several white gardeners had a splendid show of kitchen garden produce, a patch of English potatoes looking really well. Some grape vines and fruit trees in a healthy condition go far to show that if the industry is carried ontin a systematic manner in the locality of Longrcacli, it cannot fail to be a success; the proprietors, however, do not seem satisfied with the support they receive from the public.
