WYALONG. A strong bush fire is burning in the mallee country near the Billy's Lookout road. West Wyalong is now being sup plied once a week with salt water fish, procurable at Smith's fruit shop. We have not heard of any further movement m connection with the local Race Club. There is some talk of starting an Amateur or Picnic Racing Club.

THE DISTRESSED POET. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 22 April 1898

He seemed a statue, so sublime, So still he sat—so dumb, The bard that waited for the rhyme, The rhyme that would not come. Hia poet-pen was wet with iok, But ah ! the fouut was dry That sets tke echoing words a-clink 'Till she came passing by. A second, and her " twinkling shoon" Had borne her from his ken, But straight began its little tune That little poet's pen. The bird that siugs, the sighing trees, Fixed stars and rivers Rowing, And passing; girls—such things as Will set a poet going S [these Will set him going—more than this, They set him sighing too ; Especially the last, when Miss • Dolores comes in view. And so it was with him : I heard That poet's plaintive sigh, With which seemed weaved the lovely That named her passing by ! [word 0. J poet in that lonely robm, Where ran your lonely dream, I loved to see its dusty gloom Light up that passing beam. But then that sigh !—what caused it eh ?

Current Jottings. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 22 April 1898

For some time now the voice of the orator—several hundreds of them,in fact—will riug throughout the land explaining the " pros et cons" of Federation. A few of the speeches will be good, a num ber middling, but the bulk will-be rot of tilo rottenest description. There will be plenty of fun, how ever, an.l-m i;ome cases the inter jectors below will get more than they bargained for from the spouters above. Which reminds me that while Edmund Barton was speaking at a Fedeial meeting in Sydney not long since he asked what would we do if in our dis united state we were attacked by an enemy. A Sydney native replied : ' Gtet your hair cut.' , Mr. Barton fixed his. eye on the interrupter. Recognising hitn as a man he, as a lawyer, had been instrumental in sending up to do a term he replied "It seems'to me I once had some thing to do with getting your hair cut.' * * # r Whether boys are better to raise than girls or vice versa is a matter that would admit of argument lasting till the I)ay of ...

Woman's World. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 22 April 1898

[By " Melita."! A storm sufficient to freeze the r marrow m one's bones, and make deadt men and women of most of us, has been raging on Mount Kosciusko. This must have had something to do with the cool. days we have been having in Sydney, for capes, and jackets, and warm garments have been universally adopted. Colds, too, are the order of the day, and everyone feels grumpy in consequence. It takes some little time, I always think, for people to accustom them selves to the changes that the turn of the season always brings. I notice that plum coloured material will be patronised again. When tastefully designed, this is a most effective colour to wear. Here is a description of a model I saw in plum coloured cloth. It, was a beauti ful costume. The gown was of the simplest design ; the bodice was after the blouse fashion, tight at the back, end slightly pouched in front. It fastened down the left side with fancy jewelled buttons. A high Medici collar, standing well out from the neck, wa...

Klondyke Adventures. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 22 April 1898

Now that the Rlondyke goldfields have fairly been opened for the season there will no doubt, be more or Jess of a rush from all partB of tb,e world., Thousands of people will be willing and anxious to undergo the hardships ; of which a miner's life is made up for the mere chance of becoming rich in a comparatively few weeks.

A course of Bile Beans will convince you of this. They are the greatest known specific for Biliousness, Indi gestion, Constipation, Headaches, Piles, and Liver Complaint on the market to-day.

Bogan Gate. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 22 April 1898

(from our, own correspondent.) Ploughing ia still going on around here although the ground ia very hara and dry. The present land holders deserve credit for the advance they have made here since the land was confirmed. If the same progress 10 made during the nest fwe years then Bo^an Gate will be another Kerrigan. But 1 fear the advancement of tbe village will be very slow if left to the Government Departments to deal with. The township has been surveyed some time now, but you cannot secure any of it. Yet several families, now living near the water, a mile away, tell me they will shift to the allotments as soon as they can purchase them. The population around the station now, for a distance of cnles is about 200 all told, without any sigu of decrease. Th<) greatest drawback is the want of a baker •, surely when two butchers can live, one baker ought to find an opening. I see by the refusal of another hotel at the Licensing Court the other day that the Inspector does not t...

THE OTHER COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 22 April 1898

The "c Queenslander" says is a pleasure to see the coast country just now. .As far as the eye can reach on cleared land there is to be seen a'wav ing, sea of grass, calling up visions of fatness. But it is not only the thought of present wealth that strikes the ob server-—rather the possibilities pro mised by the myriad heads of ripening seed. In truth the country is -like a ripe wheatfield. Even places that are normally overstocked are now carrying their full compliment of hoofs without apparent diminution of the pasture. The bullocks still graze hip-deep, and the sheep are lost to sight in the long grass, which is fast ripening its,harvest We thought; we were badly off in New South Wales, but bad as the position of affairs is here, it is mild compared with that of Victoria.
