The appointment of Mr Edwin James to the Local Land Board is one which must give general satisfaction, especially so to those whose land busi- ness brings their in connection with this body. The object of having a local tribunal of this nature is so that they will be conversant with existing local conditions, thus being better able to adjudicate on matters coming before them. The vacancy occurring in the Board, owing to the appoint- ment of Mr King to Norfolk Island, caused a number of names to be sub- mitted, but the authorities did well in making their choice. During Mr King's reign, we found no fault with his actions as a member, but it did seem somewhat ironical for the body to be termed the Local Land Board when there was only one member out of the three a resident, the other two hailing from Bourke. Mr James' appointment dates from the 12th July, and was gazetted last Wednes- day.
Local and General [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 12 August 1899
Local and General Removed. — Messrs Bennett and Barkell's bicycle agency has been removed from Linsley-street to a more central shop in Marshall-street, next Mr Farquhar's store. A Clock. — The Postmaster General has &nbsp; informed Mr Spence, M.P., that he has agreed to grant the request of the Mount Drysdale Progress Committee that a good clock be provided for the post office in that town. Cheap Excursion to Melbourne. — The Railway Commissioners announce the issue of tickets to Melbourne at Cheap Fares by the train leaving Cobar at 7.35 a.m. on Wed- nesday, 16th August, available for return from Melbourne by the mail train up to Thursday, 14th September. School of Arts. — A committee meeting of the above was held in the building on Wednesday, Mr McGregor being in the chair. The entertainment committee recom- mended the holding of an entertainment in September. The committee approved of the recommendation, which will be carried into effect. The Librarian (Mr Nicholls) appl...
A Woman was to Blame. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 12 August 1899
A Woman was to Blame. It is surprising bow eager men are to saddle women with all blame. So frequently is this done, that 'a woman was at the bottom of it' has passed into a phrase of every day usage. If you ask men for instances of woman's wrong-doing, they will tell you how Adam was tempted by Eve, how Tarpeia betrayed Rome to the Sabines, how Helen cau°od the seige of Troy, of tho results of Cleo patra's intrigues with Cicsar and Antony, and so on. But they novor tell you of tho wise actions which women have performed. Surely Miss May Graham, of 99 York Street West, ?'outh Melbourne, was not to 'biame, when, by taking Bile Beans for Bil iousness, she cured herself of a most acute attack of dyspepsia. Here is what she told a report1* of the Mel bourne Record : — ' For three years I suffered greatly from dys epiia. I had frequent and fe irful ntcncks of neural&i'i i'i tlv fn'-n, wVr.'.h .?.?!ii*»; mo agom for vveuk' i n hue ? i food di-agree'i with me. I rov :slla:s aud. me...
Hospital Ball. Dancers to the Front. Brilliant Costumes. A COLOSSAL SUCCESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 12 August 1899
Hospital Ball. Dancers to the Front. Brilliant Costumes. A COLOSSAL SUCCESS. &nbsp; It is only about six weeks since a committeeman — Mr Hooper — sug- gested at a Hospital meeting that a ball should be held, and that it should be of such a unique character that the public would be attracted in large numbers. As the state of finances was then at a very low ebb, the idea was welcomed, and the committee acted very wisely in placing the matter in the hands of the Cobar ladies. As the ladies of the town generally took part, it would be difficult to particu- larise; sufficeth it to say that they all &nbsp; &nbsp; worked with determination, and the results of their labors proved beyond all doubt that where there's a will there's a way, the truism being more emphatic when the will is a woman's. However, arrangements were effi- ciently, promptly and perfectly carried into effect. Everything that could be got for the asking was obtained, with the result that the amount...
Mossgiel. A HAMLET ON THE PLAINS. MORE "ARCADIAN" REMINISCENCES. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 12 August 1899
Mossgiel. A HAMLET ON THE PLAINS. &nbsp; MORE 'ARCADIAN' REMINIS- CENCES. (By Back-Blocks) In my last article, inserted in the Cobar Herald, our old and ever popu- lar local newspaper — I dealt, as far as your space would admit, with the town and district of Ivanhoe, and, in this notice I propose treating the sister township, as above indicated. Moss- giel, something like Ivanhoe, is sur- rounded by many well-known large pastoral stations, together with a mild sprinkling of 'cockies,' who have &nbsp; sprung into existence, in these parts, during the past decade or thereabouts. The little hamlet named is situated on the main road (and stock route) between Ivanhoe and Hay, having mail communication with the large centres of population by the establish- ment of a bi-weekly coach service running from Hay to Moss- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; giel, and Ivanhoe, where the stage &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; meets the Wilcannia ...
Telegrams. Friday. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 12 August 1899
Telegrams. Friday. The signal man, Miles, confessed to having placed the obstruction on the railway line near Ashfield. The Assembly passed the Federal Address on the Voices, amid cheers. The Friendly Societies Bill has passed through committee. Mr Pilcher introduced the second reading of the Totalisator Bill into tho Council. The debate was adjourned. In the Council yesterday several bills which had been interrupted by prorogation were restored to the busi- ness paper. . The case of Gilbert Smith charged with criminaly libelling John Norton, continued throughout yesterday. Norton, recalled, denied Cato's and Mrs Duggan's evidence. W. Timswell, a fellow passenger from London, stated that Norton's conduct and language on board the vessel was low and blackguardly. The case was further adjourned till to-day. They do not expect to conclude it till next week. At an Opposition caucus yesterday Mr Barton positively declined to sub- mit a motion condemning the fiscal policy of the Governmen...
A Cobar industry. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 12 August 1899
A Cobar industry. Messrs Gudgeon and Clifton, our well- known carpenters and building contractors, have been extending their business in Cobar &nbsp; in many ways during the last few months. Recently a Herald representative had a look over the brick-yard belonging to this firm, at Wrightville. Cobar has not had &nbsp; the reputation for the very best bricks and Messrs Gudgeon and Clifton have been ex- perimenting at their kiln with a view to producing an article that would pass public scrutiny, and it can now be confidently stated that they have succeeded in producing a first class article, good, solid and durable. The bricks are similar to those used in Gov- ernment buildings, being the genuine sand- stock make. The clay is well mixed and ground in a pug-mill and binds and burns well. The kiln we saw contained about 40,000 and the number of imperfect bricks was surprisingly small. It was the most successful kiln yet burned, the proprietors having experienced conside...

The Hospital Ball was the largest ever held in Cobar. Australia defeated Warwickshire by 9 wickets on Wednesday. About 200 men are at present em- ployed at the Nymagee copper mine. A 'Geisha Fair' in aid of the R.C. &nbsp; Church will be held during race week. A Plain and Fancy Dress Ball will be held at Wrightville on August 23rd. Billiard and cribbage tournaments are in full swing at the School of Arts. The following gold-mining lease is ready for delivery : — ...
Restdown. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 12 August 1899
Restdown. (From our own Correspondent.) As I predicted in my last letter, the battery has been idle all the week ow- ing to want of stone, but the 'Girl in &nbsp; Blue' is coming to the rescue on Mon- day with a ten ton parcel. As other claim holders still appear not to be in any hurry to commence work, the bat- tery will again be idle when this crush- ing gets through. &nbsp; August 5, 1899.
MINING. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 12 August 1899
Mining. The Occidental mill cleaned up on Friday. The clean up resulted in 224 ounces of gold, valued at £920. The cyanide will clean up on Thursday next. When the cyanide returns are in it is estimated that both cleanings will be equal to £2,100. The most important event in mining matters this week has been a discovery at the Young Australia mine. It will be remembered that about 18 months ago a very rich patch of gold-bearing ore was found in the north end of the 160ft level, but the body of ore cut out and all attempts to find it proved fu- tile. While stoping at the north end of the 220ft level on Wednesday, an exact counterpart of this body of ore was located. Small prospects taken from it dollied a very large 'tail' of &nbsp; gold in the dish. The number of ounces to the ton could only be a mat- ter of rough calculation. Large pieces of ore were literally covered with gold. The ore consists of decomposed schist, ironstone, and quartz. Now that they &nbsp; have ...
Sporting. The Turf. Cricket. Football. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 12 August 1899
Sporting. Football. Mr Mullineux's team of English footballers was pitted for the third time during its present visit to the colonies against a team drawn from Queensland and New South Wales, and representing Australia, at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Saturday afternoon. The Englishmen were victorious by 11 points to 10. The fourth and final test match will be played this (Saturday) afternoon, at Sydney. The local footballers have decided to send a team to Bourke, to play there on Wednesday, 23rd August. On Wednesday next the Town fifteen will play the Federals. Practice was in- dulged in on Saturday. The Turf. At a committee meeting of the Cobar Turf Club, held on Thursday night, it was decided to accept the tender of Messrs Gudgeon and Clifton, at £22 10s, for the erection of 10 stalls and a jockey's room. It is also intended to erect a ladies' lavatory. It was de- cided to remove the six-furlong post, &nbsp; and construct a straight run of nearly a quarter of a mile on to...
