Poet's [?] WHO KNOWS? [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 9 February 1892

Both timm. I WHO KNOWS? Yes, she is fair-divinely fair She holds her head in classic pose But underneath her wi telling smile Are waywardness, caprice, and guile P Who Knows-who knows ? Does light of love illume those eyes The love that in her bosom glows P Or is the light that lingers there Delusive, though it shine so fair P Who knows-who knows ? Does that chaste form a chaster charm, A tender, loving heart enclose ? A heart whose tendrils, like the vine, Would round the heart that loved it twine ? Who knows-who knows ? Or is she-for such things may be As fickle as the wind that blows. And veers as if it were in play, Trifling with all who own her sway ? Who knows-who knows ? But why a prey to doubt remain ? Why halt 'twixt hope and fear ? Propose '. She may be waiting till you dare To read tile secret hidden there ? Who knows-who knows ? {Note by the Poet.)-I don't; and I would rather not risk it.

CHAPTER LXIII.—A COSTLY RELIEF. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 9 February 1892

CHAPTER LXIIL-A COSTLT RELIEF. The little matter of business Monsieur Pel bois had to transact with Mr. Hackbit was arranged actually in that gentleman's ab sence. Keziah had been up at her mother's all day, so Mr. Hackbit took the opportunity | of looking over all her belongings, imagining that he might discover some preparations for flight. Bu the was disappointed. He found nothing ia Keziah's orderly drawers and boxes but the most natured and ordinary things. Inconsistent as it must appear, he was angry in not finding what he had sought, and a resolve came into his mind, without his being perfectly conscious of it. If people put themselves in a frame of mind to do a tbing, they are pretty sure to find an opportunity, and themselves prepared to act. Hackbit's opportunity came this night. Kesiah had returned in time for supper, which had been put off owing to Mr. Rim pler's and Mr. Hackbit's non-appearance. Rilas and Monsieur Pelbois came in first, and remained in the office some t...

The Western Champion. Vita Sine [?] mors est. BARCALDINE, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1892. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 9 February 1892

jjhí Hâtent |îtam^art. Vita tine lUerit mor» ett. As a great storm is usually predicted by a preternatural calm, so we may presume that the quiet brooding over this electorate with the nomination day close at hand, portends a hurri cane of activity when the actual canvas commences. But in the strug gle upon which we shall enter, there is really no reason why the supporters of any candidate should work them selves up to that pitch of excitement which makes them intolerant of every body who does not coincide in every item withjthe particular views they hold. It is a bad sign when political opponents drop explanation anaargue mentand descend to personal abuse. The old and hackneyed saying " When you have no case, abuse the other side" is too often acted upon by rival candidates for any position of honor. The electors are not interested in knowing the private history of the persons who seek their suffrages ; but they want to know what are the honest Solitical opinions held by each can i...

SPORTING [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 9 February 1892

OUR correspondent at Tambo writes: Everyone will endorse the sentiments of " Haphazard" with regard to the races in the past, there are too many dead heads on Committees. In connection with the late meeting Mr. Brenan rendered yeoman service as he does in every local institution, andi am sure the omission of " Haphazard" was an oversight, for which nothing but gore will satisfy we Tamboites. There has frequently of late been an argument as to the advisability or otherwise of amalgamating the Tambo Christmas races with the Great Western Downs Jockey Club, and I must say I am a thorough advocate of it on the condition that the amalgamation is based on the following lines :-1st-In place of one black ball in five to exclude a person from becoming a member that a candidate bc accepted as a member upon receiving a majority of votes in his favor? 2nd-That the accounts of the Club be kept in a similar manner to Divisional Board accounts, where there are sub-divisions so that the two meeting...
