Original Poetry. Water in the Bore. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 7 June 1892
Water in the Bore. TAKE any Queensland paper up, And read it where you may, It's all artesian water That's the topic of the day. It's rehearsed at balls and parties, In the pub and in the store; About So-and-so was lucky, Be struck water in his bore. Meet a jackeroo or squatter In the bush or in the town, If they have not then struck water, They will pass you with a frown. But then you cannot blame them, Kor their hearts are sick and sore; You can tell by their demeanour There's no water in the bore. Ask a squatter at liis station For to fill your ration bags, You would fancy how he snaps them, That he'd tear ttiem into ra^s. And if for work you'll ask him, Now this is what he'll roar, " Doing nothing at the station But putting down a bore." Meet a lizard when he's coming in To get his week's supply, He thinks he's heavy paper ; You can sec it in liis eye. If the time of day you bid him, He'll answer ana no more; You think he owns the blooming lot, The station, run, and bore. Whenev...

JT was a good thing for me that I did not attempt to act upon the instruc tions received upon tbe 1st instant, for I would have met with a strange jtfghap. I am afraid. About midnight I aw®Bvvith a queer feeling in my bead again, 1 had 6tayed in the park too long, and had caught some cold. I was confined to my room for a week, obeying the doctor's orders, although I felt well enough to get out in two days. Ah! this head of mine. It was beginning to give me much trouble. My doctor in formed me that I would probably have fallen in the street, If I bad gone out that night. I was glad I did not make the attempt. My servant had found out tbe full parti culars in connection with Professor Weichs ler's entertainment, and at 7 p.m., on the night of the 8th instant 1 sallied forth ; all right now ; no danger of a relapse.

Muttaburra Pastoral Show. FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. JUNE 1. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 7 June 1892
MuttaTjura Pastoral Show. FBOLF ODE OWN OOEEESPOKDENT. JUNE 1 Oob carnival .week has come and gone, and a very enjoyable time it has been. Owing to the rain which fell in the week immediately preceding, many people and several exhibits for the show were prevented coming in. The first note of misfortune was sounded on the Monday, when newB arrived that Mr. and Mrs. Frasor and their children had been thrown out of their buggy and Mr. Eraser's aim broken. This report, unhappily, proved to be true, and Dr. Egan's professional ser vices had to be called in to both Mr. aud Mrs. Eraser on their arrival in Muttaburra, the children, fortunately, escaping unhurt. The accident was caused by the horses taking fright at a pack horse and bolting. The reins broke and the wheels got on the lock throw ing the whole party out; this, however, was the only accident that happened to mar the meeting. By Monday night every hotel was more than full with visitors, there being more in town than were ever in ...

SALVATIOX ARMY. at cc ^ di C£ A f:EN'i:RAi.or corporal, we don't know which, clad in the uniform of the Salvation Army, passed up the line last Saturday by the mail train. He inspected Uarcaldino'from the plat form of a second class carriage, but it was too ragged and miserable-looking for him to sup pose the people there required salvation ; but when he saw Longreach, and its stately build ings, he immediately recognised that that was the place for him to take a turn at the devil, and secure converts.

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

ON the 15th of March last we pub lished in the Western Chaiii/nmi a paragraph headed "He had'em again," in which certain statements were made regarding Mr. Maxwell, the editor and proprietor of the Ulnton Hun Id, who has complained of the same.

We may mention that Mr. Maxwell is personally un known to either the editor or the publisher or any member of tlie staff of this paper, and that we had not the least intention of reflecting upon Mr. Maxwell's reputation and apologise most unreservedly if we have unintentionally caused liiin any pain or annovance.
