THE RACING CARNIVAL. Everything in connection with the first day of 'che Coolgardie! annual Cup meeting passed off well on Wednesday, and the club is well satisfied with re sults. / The attendance was good, not withstanding the arrogance of Jupiter - Pluvius, who gazed uown upon the pleasure makers with a black loot, which threatened any moment to take liquid form, and drench those below. To-day the second day will be gone through, and this will bring the gold fields round to a conclusion. The Siee retary of the Club, Mr. G. N.

Selected Verse. KEEP SMILING. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 13 September 1913
Selected Verse. ________ &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; KEEP SMILING. Don't be dull and gloomy, &nbsp; If you can't have what you lack. Some day, soon it may be, Your fortune will come back. &nbsp; Luck will turn and find you Some delightful day, Anyhow, just think so — It's much the better way. Meanwhile just be cheery, Meet life with a smile, The boy is always happy Who whistles all the while. &nbsp; When you meet misfortune, Don't let it knock you flat, Just be glad you're living, And let it go at that! &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;

THB CATHEDRAL OF THE BUSH. Within the dim cathedral of the pines.

MY LATER VIEW [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 13 September 1913
MY LATER VIEW. I much admired her ready tongue, Her fluent conversation; &nbsp; &nbsp; Upon her words I breathless hung, She liked my admiration. &nbsp; I also praised her nimble wit, Her gibes were mighty clever, &nbsp; I used to think that I could sit And hear her talk for ever. &nbsp; Her arguments showed skill; indeed, Few people could refute her; &nbsp; I tried, but never could, succeed, So seldom would dispute her. But then, in sweet accord were we, vOuv views agreed precisely, &nbsp; And so, of course, I thought that we &nbsp; Would do together nicely. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; But now, of course, we're happy yet, Reposefulness she's' lacking, &nbsp; &nbsp; She talks a heap too much, I bet Some folks would call it clacking. I don't enjoy our joint debates, &nbsp; She does, of' course, I swear it! It's pretty tough, but still the fates Decree that I must bear it.
A DYING RACE. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 13 September 1913
A DYING. RACE. &nbsp; &nbsp; (By Will H. Ogilvie in the "British Australasian.") &nbsp; The nullah and the spear are lost, The boomerang falls faint in flight, The hunting-paths your fathers crossed Our sheep have trampled out of &nbsp; &nbsp; sight. Your warriors toil for paltry wage, Your kings are but a jest, and scorn, The white men of this later age, Have crowded out your native born! We took your silver and your gold, 'We took your coal, your opals blue; &nbsp; The land you were too weak to hold Our flocks and herds may wander &nbsp; through And we, we give you in return A text, a blanket, meat and flour: 'Tis all the recompense ye earn, Who gave a continent in dower! Before your last grey king grows dumb, &nbsp; &nbsp; Before your last smoke-signal dies. Before by want and woe o'ercome, Your last chief on our threshold lies, &nbsp; &nbsp; Let me with weak, unworthy word, A requiem for your...

Summer's Coming. LICENSING PROSECUTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 13 September 1913
Summer's Coming. LICENSING PROSECUTIONS. Yesterday morning, before Messrs. D. Macpherson and. J. Kay Hall. J.'sP., Messrs.

Jones, William Reynolds, James Williams, Herbert Hewitt, Joseph Purdy, and Percy Clarke were fined 5s. and costs for being on licensed premises after 11 p.m. On a similar charge John Pope and George Rogers were dismissed.

Disorderly Conduct. A CHEEKY BOY. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 13 September 1913
Disorderly Conduct. A CHEEKY BOY. Yesterday morning, before Messrs. D. Macpherson and J. Kay Hall, J's.P., William Barker, Arthur Howes, and Stanley Stewart were &nbsp; charged with creating a disturbance in Lefroy-street. They were each fined £1 8s and costs for their nocturnal rioting. Had it not been for the cheeky demeanour of the boy Howes, the delinquents might have escaped with more nominal fines. This lad during the whole of the court proceedings treated the case as a joke, and was seen winking at &nbsp; those who crowded the court gallery, which conduct largely accounted for the severe fines. &nbsp;
ITEMS OF INTEREST. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 13 September 1913
ITEMS OF INTEREST. A Boxing Boom.— Coolgardie is not to be devoid of interest this even- ing, as there will be the long looked- for boxing contest between Jock Craig, of Merredin, and Jerry Pickup, &nbsp; the well-known footballer of Bur- banks. Craig has done some good &nbsp; work, and Pickup is the willing son of a well-known athlete, and is known to be as game as a pebble. &nbsp; The contest will take place in the Royal Hall, and will be preceded by &nbsp; the great film picture, 2500 feet in length, of the Lang-Langford fight, &nbsp; in which the Australian was dis- qualified for a supposed foul, but this will be shown in the picture. Certainly the double programme is an attractive one. &nbsp;
Personal [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 13 September 1913
===================== &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Personal Mr. Bill Wymond says that he can count the number of hairs on his head with infinite more ease than he can pick a winner in any race. Although he follows up the game and always goes on to the course with a pair of field glasses he cannot get into the knack of pocketing winnings. He be- lieves his luck will change, though. Mick Neenan, who had the booths at the Coolgardie races, had a bit of bad luck in striking a slice of weather when thirsts did not rise to any great proportion. Before the meeting a cou- ple of real hot days were experienced, &nbsp; and it looked as if. things would be good for the :biz., but ;a good drop of ' rain and a cold wind upset everything. Mr. Joe Monaghan, to whom iheold town owies much, was on the racecourse on Wednesday picking winners. He was 'for a number of years the civic head of bur municipality, but for th...

The Coolgaardie Miner Published Weekly SATURDAY, SEPT. 13, 1913 OURSELVES. &nbsp; The "Coolgardie Miner" has just passed over the first six months of its existence. The proprietors are pleased with the success that has attended their efforts, but recognise there is room for vast improvement. There are plenty of easier jobs in the world than launching a newspaper, but there are few harder. A fledgling in the journalistic world always gets hard hit unless it can close its safe doors over a good quantity of rmno(?), and as those behind the printing press in this concern are unable to do that, they have been bumped pretty hard at times but the encounter has left no &nbsp; serious after effects, and we have as &nbsp; yet been able to live through. We have endeavored to please everybody by fair open criticism, and we believe we have done so; or at least all but those against whom the criticism was directed. We have managed to avoid &nbsp; any unpleasant enc...
Our Sydney Letter. Sydney, August 28th,' 1913. The Thir[?] [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 13 September 1913
Our Sydney Letter. Sydney, August 28th, 1913. The Thirteenth. &nbsp; Mr. Wade, the leader of the Oppo - sition, is to move his thirteenth mo- tion of censure on the Government to night. It is said that it will be forced to a division before the House rises. But, in a dying Parliament, the temp- tation to "talk to Buncombe" is so strong that there may be some relaxa- tion of the Ministerial issue. On paper &nbsp; it would seem that the Ministry might go down. For the motion is aimed at the Norton-Griffith agreement, which &nbsp; because it aims at re-introducing pri- vate enterprise, both into the construc- tion of railways, and the flotation of loans is detested by many Laborites &nbsp; as heartily as it is by the Opposition. This is one of the rare cases in which the Liberals are tolerably solid, whilst their Labor opponents are the reverse. &nbsp; &nbsp; Indeed, Mr. McGirr, who is the newest Labor member and the newest mem- ber in th...
FOUND DEAD. A GRUESOME DISCOVERY. ILL HEALTH THE CAUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 13 September 1913
FOUND DEAD. A GRUESOME DISCOVERY. &nbsp; ILL HEALTH THE CAUSE. &nbsp; At 8.45 yesterday morning the Coolgardie police received word from John Dyer that he feared something was wrong with Thomas Spence, as he had not seen him around his camp as usual. In company with P.c. Sayers, the informant returned to the camp of the man in question, and on entering, the constable and civilian were horrified to find a corpse with a horrible gash in its throat on the bunk, whilst a pool of blood was upon the floor. An hour later P.c. Fleming took the last mortal remains of the deceased to the morgue. Upon an old almanac the deceased had written his last message of anguish and hopeless- ness, &nbsp; "You will think it strange of &nbsp; me doing this rash act, but I'm &nbsp; better dead than alive. In the &nbsp; first place I have to take physic continually. I am ruptured, and my legs are done. I cannot walk, and now I am punished with my &nbsp...
