LL that day and tbe next my head gave me no tronble; no ache, no pain, but a peculiar, swimming, dazed sensation. Loss of Test, very likely. " I most stop this night walking," I thought; that iB after to-night. I had promised to be at tbe house of Dr. Westinghouse at 10 to night, and I would not break my promise. I could not; my heart longed for the hour when I could take my departure. I was punctual. My watch chromoled but a few minutes past the hour as I knocked on tbe basement door. I did so, as I saw the light burning in the office. I bad not long to wait. Tbe door opened and tbe doctor stood in the opening, his tall fignre robed in a long dressing-gown, his black hair covered with a skull-cap. " Ton are prompt," was all he said, and I followed him into the room. He motioned me to a chair, and after care folly pulling down the shades, occu...

Rhgmster's Cornen. A Story of the Docker's Strike. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 14 June 1892

A Story of the Docker's Strike. AWAY with your moralising, away with your big black book, And wreath around those lifeless bones the life you Christians took; ' The life of the poor man's darling. Don't talk of hope on high Until ye, like me, parson, have seen a loved one die. Slain in a London slum, although no slattern of a court, But the wife of a British worker, pure in her deed and thought; Slain, but not by the masters, hard-hearted though they be, But by the friends I trusted, the men who worked with me. Strong language, yes, it is, sir; yet all is true I say; No creed, no priest, no toiler shall dare to say me nay. We were happy as you rich folk, happier too belike, My Liz and I together, before I went on strike. But the striking craze was on me for a few more coins a day. She always spoke against it, "Your wages are not bad, Don't fan tlie flame of discontent; stick to your working lad." Like many more I flung my work, and her life, too, away. Oh, parson, bring the big book...

Aramac Annual Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 14 June 1892

Aramac Annual Meeting. THE Annual Meeting of the Aramae Jockey Club was held on Wednesday and Thursday last, the 8th and 9th oi June. The woather was very pleasant and a large attendance of visitors came into town to participate in the joys of the annual carnival. The course has been much unproved by the building of a grand stand much to the comfort of the officials and the public. The racing was interesting, but not very large fields of horses competed. Many of those who performed at Muttaburra had arranged to go on to Win ton and Hughenden, and others were sick or unable otherwise to take part in the events. The local horses did well in most of the minor events, but the principal prizes went to Bar caldine and Longreach, Orion, carrying off the big money and Marshal Soult the other three handicaps. Mr. J. W. Booker, as usual, kept things humming throughout the meeting. The totalisator did fairly well. There were two booths, but the lessee of one brought out nothing to sell and the...

There was a large crowd of the unemployed outside the building', and directly after the Speaker hod notified the return of Messrs, O'CormeH and Dickson for the Musgrave and Bulimba, Mr. RYAN moved the adjournment of the House to call attention to the condition of the unemployed, of whom he stated there were 1500 or 2000 in a state of destitution in Brisbane.

Q. C. Union, which appears as a reprint from the Independent in your paper of the above date. His statement as to the number of carriers registered under the rules of the Tambo Camera' Association (51) deserves to be accepted with a large margin for reduction, in case it "Voss a lectle too many, my tear."
