Arm- strong, J. P., with Mr. W. J. Goudge, of Parkes. The ceremony was per- formed iu the large dining-room, which had been beautifully decorated for the occasion. The bride entered on the arm of her father, who subsequently gave her away.

A Parkes Fire. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 22 April 1898
At midnight on Tuesday, or rather (to be more precise) at an early hour on Wednesday morning the fire bell was vigorously rung, and those who hurried out of doors to investigate were soon able to locate the outbreak by the glare which rose above the heart of the town. Messrs J. Heraghty and M. McGlynn were the first to notice the outbreak, and the former, on proceeding into Clarinda-street, found a fire had broken out in Mr. John Donnellan's boot shop. He at once made for the bell and sounded the alarm, and soon after the members of the Fire Brigade put in an appearance. Some delay, however, arose in getting to work, but once operations were commenced the men fairly excelled themselves. With dogged determination, and at times at the risk of someof their lives—through entering with the hose the burning building, which threatened to topple about their heads at any moinent— the men, under the direction of Cap tain Sykes, fought the fire fiend inch by inch, and on all sides eulogies wer...
Obituary. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 22 April 1898
The Grim Reaper, Death, has been very much in evidence in town of late &nbsp; and it must be admitted the death-roll of the past week or so has been a re- markable one. During that brief span three of the oldest residents, three of our prominent townsmen who were directly connected with the Parkes Council, and three who, in their res- pective spheres, played important parts, have "crossed the bar" and the &nbsp; old familiar voices of three who, from long acquaintance, we had learnt to look on as being amongst the pillars of the place are, alas, stilled for ever. In last issue it was our sad duty to chron- icle the death of Alderman J. A. Rose. This week Alderman McGee and Mr. G. S. Willacy, one of the Council's auditors, have passed over to the great majority. When word was passed round on &nbsp; Sunday evening that Mr. George Strode Willacy had breathed his last it was rather difficult for those who had seen him less than a week pre- viously filling his acc...

A BOGAN GATE MATTER. TO THE EDITOR "WESTERN CHAMPION.") [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 29 April 1898
i I THE EDITOR ""WESTERN CHAMPION."") Sir,—There seems to be great diver sity of opinion as to whether or not there is any necessity for another hotel at Bogan Gate, which seems likely to lead to ructions in the near future. For my own part 1 do not sea the necessity in the meantime, as one seems sufficient for the present population. What there is really need for is a good store where a man could get his. goods at a reasonable price, and not have to pay through the nose for any little thing he requires. I feel confident if a good man, willing to sell goods at a reasonable profit to himself, were to start business he would do well and far better than starting an opposition hotel. Perhaps, ere long, somo enter prising individual will tumble to this iacfc,— -Yours etc.. PRO BONO PUBLICO.

The Roundabout. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 29 April 1898
A little sensation wao cheated in society circles, in Sydney, by the rumour of the engagement of Miss Walkeffp the daughter of the late Eon. Thomas Walker, to a well-known and exalted divine-=fche Anglican Bishop of Sydney, in fact. Miss Walker is the heiress of the colony, and the gentleman who, it is oaid will lead her to the altar, is a widower.

He asked hie London hoard lor a winding engine, and immediately a 10-stamp battery was forwarded to him. As there was no payable lode proved on the mine the stamps were useless, and for a year or so lay in ^Coolgardie in the original package. o • In Germany there is a town who&e citizens pay no taxes.
