STOCK AND STATION REPORT. CHAMPION Office, Monday, 10 p.m. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 21 June 1892
STOCK ^ STATION REPORT. CHAMPION* Office, Monday, 10 p.m. THE weather for thc past week has been mild, moro like March than June. The rain, however, seems to hold off, although Mr. Wragge has been steadily predicting something more welcome than cloudy skies. At Peak Downs the result of the continued drought is seen in the bare paddocks almost denuded of pasture. Some of the stock will be moved this month, arrangements having been made for country out in this direction. The Alice River is not yet running, fourteen months hav ing elapsed since thc waterholes were filled. Loading is becoming a little more plentiful, but many carriers' teams have gone out empty for wool. Yesterday there were 36 carriers on the rotation list at the Union office, and 49 teams available. The quantity of wool des patched by rail during week ending to-day was 365 bales, including 138 Coreena, 151 Albilbah, and 76 from the wool scouring works. Of this quantity 30 were from Beaconsfield, 44 Rodney Downs, and 2...

Notes and Comments. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 21 June 1892
P glota and (tauwnte. " SOCIAL Doings" in tte Teleqraph has the following :-" It is stated that the engagement of a Defence Force officer of high rank -with a lovely Darling Downs belle has been broken off." Who is it ? THE Worker suggests that we should revert to the old method of using the police to compile the electoral rolls. It has arrived at this conclusion since Mr. Hardacre, one of its new chum Union officials was fined £15 for roll-stuffing. A STDNET fool is reported to have lately received £10,000, the prooeeds of an English legacy. He drew £1000 a week, and gave hundreds of pounds away to barmaids until all the money was gone-the £10,000 lasting about ten weeks-and he is now lurk ing at street corners for free drinks. THE Toowoomba Chronicle says in the last issue received :-" It is stated that Archbishop Dawes is a candidate for the Bishopric of Goulburn, New South Wales." We forget how long it is since the Coadjutor Bishop was made an Archbishop; also we cannot understa...

A Love Song. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 21 June 1892
^^BP A Love Song. rDcar, do you know That I love you so ; That from your side never to sever, With nothing but you, And your pleasure to do, I'd barter the world for ever. Were you sick unto death, And could my last breath Save you but an hour were it given, O ! darling, to me A sweet joy 'twould be To have my own lile so riven. To stay with you ever, And part from you never, Seems a future too sweet to be mine. J Dear heart, I'll be true, And you never shall rue That you asked me for ever to be thine.

[?]ERNOON [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 21 June 1892
A CORRESPONDENT at Aramac furnishes thc following :-The Aramac and District Ball held in the Masonic Hall on the 9th instant, was one of the most enjoyable evenings any one could wish for. Tho decorations were simple but artistically arranged by the worthy secretary ; one end of the hall was beautifully draped with variegated rugs (it put one in mind of the old Mosaic work of art) and flags ; there were also somo splendid staghorn plants, and amongst their large leaves reposed the programmes, from whence everybody could help themselves. This was really a novel idea, and a good one. Thc supper was served in a most recherche manner by Messrs. Sutherland and Duke. Thc excellent music was Supplied by Mr. Will Chandler in his usual style. Dancing was kept up until between 2 and 3 o'clock, when everyone went home, after hav ing thoroughly enjoyed one of the most plea sant evenings in Aramac. The dances were kept from flagging by the energetic efforts of the indefatigable M.C., Mr. L. E. T...
