The Turf. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 19 August 1899
The Turf. The Aff6- says : ' Domino has achieved tlie zenith of his owner's am bition, and Mr Russell proposes to give him the reward such a gallant performance deserves. Domino will not race again, but will in future en joy a leisured existence in the well grassed paddocks of his owner's estate. R. H. Frew, who trained Domino, has proved himself very expert in the preparation of Grand National candi dates, and is deserving of high praise for the condition which the horse boasted on Saturday. A. Williams, who rode Domino to victory, had the distinction of winning the doublo, as ho was on the back of Crysalite as well. In each race he displayed great judgment. It is understood that Wil liams, who is over 40 yoars of age, in tends, row that he has established a high reputation as a cross country lioisemim, to retire from the active pursuit of his profession.' Mr R. H. Frew is a son of Mr G. Frew, of Cen tral station.

Breaking Bicycle By- Laws. On Wednesday last, before Mr Brown, P.M. and Mr Mathews, J. P. John Bailey was proceeded against for riding on the footpath. He pleaded not guilty. He said that he crossed the footpath in an angular direction, but he did not think such action constituted a breach of the by-laws. Mr Leah, Council Clork, appeared for the Council. Henry Stuart Robertson, constable, gave evidence as to the committal of the offence, which occurred close to the School of Arts in Becker street. Witness said that defendant rode on the footpath for five or six yards. To Defendant: The direction was angular; had never read the by-laws, had not seen &nbsp; defendant crossing the same place previously. The Council Clerk contended that as there was no right-of-way to the vacant allot- ment here, defendant would have to ride on the footpath to reach the right-of-way to the next allotment, by which to cross on to the street. Defendant said he rode across the foot- path and he did...

Present : Aldermen Snelson (Mayor), James, Kinkead, Bailey, Duffy, Hunt, and N. Morrison. CORRESPONDENCE. A letter was read from Alderman Hogan, explaining that he would be unable to attend the meeting, and asking that the matter of the lane at the rear of the Grand Hotel be held over until next meeting. Mr Spence wrote: — I have seen Mr Lee &nbsp; re the new water supply several times and pointed out the urgency of the matter, and he now agrees to go on with the work and settle the question of whether the old reser- voir is to be taken over later on, as the new supply works must be carried out in any case. The papers show that a probable loss of £400 will result per annum on a 1s rate, but I said I understood that the increase of population since that estimate was prepared would cover that. He wants to know how it would come out in that respect ; ...

Mossgiel. A HAMLET ON THE PLAINS. MORE "ARCADIAN" REMINISCENCES. (Continued from last issue.) [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 19 August 1899
Mossgiel. A HAMLET ON THE PLAINS. more 'arcadian' reminis- cences. &nbsp; &nbsp; (By Back-Blocks ) (Continued from last issue.) The hotelkeeper at Mossgiel, was Mr Tom Ryan, who, it will be re- &nbsp; membered, raced one of his horses at a Cobar meeting some time ago, bringing his own jockey with him all the way from the hamlet. Mr Ryan, however, had no luck at Cobar. The Copper City horses, I'm afraid, were a bit too slippery for the big bush 'take-downs.' That straight goer &nbsp; and King of Cobar sportsmen, Mr John Owen Hunt, had just purchased some really good horses — as, I believe, he has even now — and the poor, forlorn 'Arcadian' neddy, as I expected, was smothered in clouds of red dust, away back in the ruck. By the way, Mr 'Jack' Hunt visited the backblocks &nbsp; once with a racehorse of his, when the present writer had the pleasure of beating him badly, though Mr Hunt stated in an interesting report of the meeting, in the Cobar He...

An Astounding Cure in Melbourne. THE MIRACULOUS ESCAPE OF A COLLINGWOOD LADY. &nbsp; &nbsp; THE AWFUL EFFECTS OF A NEGLECTED COLD. &nbsp; BILE BEANS DO GOOD WORK AGAIN. &nbsp; . Here is an astounding cure of a Melbourne resident. Mrs Mary Laid law, of 81 Ballarat street, Colling wood, Melbourne, who declares that she was in the first stage of consump tion and that Bile Beans effected a remarkable cure. Read her story as told to a reporter of the Mercury : — She said ' I began to feel in bad health eigh teen months ago, as the result of a severe cold, caught, 1 think, by sleeping in a damp bed. I gradually got worse until an. attack of pneumonia ensued, and though I recovered; .it left me very weak ancl- ill, and with a frequert cough.

The Bench ruled that they did not have jurisdiction, as the de mand for the payment of rates had not been made on the occupant of the premises within six months. It was necessary that al efforts to obtain payment from the occupier should be exhausted before the landlord could' be held liable. ' ? Shei'iiehd's Shout Stem Cabbage. — Extraordinary yield.

Gilgunnia. (From our Correspondent.) At the Warden's Court on the 16th inst., Mr A. Moseley made application to have the title of H. Wright to a mineral prospecting area of 40 acres, on Mt Dromedary, joining J. Hill's lease, declared void. A. Moseley de- &nbsp; posed, on oath, that he purchased from H. Wright his interest in the pros- &nbsp; pecting area; that Wright never worked &nbsp; on same on the 24th June; that he &nbsp; (Moseley) re-pegged the same on July 4, and took possession of same and held it ever since. There were no ob- jections lodged. The Warden declared the title of H. Wright to said pros- pecting area null and void. The next case was one of trespass, Pommer v Ansell. The complainant stated that he was lessee of a gold lease joining the Dream claim, which was now under suspension. He had been away working, and when he re- turned he found one of his shafts in- terfered with and windlass stands, slabs, and some logs missing. He saw the...
