The late.Judge Kilgore, better known as ' Buck,' was a good story teller, and while a'member of the United States Congress he often related humorous incidents of his career.

One evening about dusk lie was out in the country in quest of a deserter who had been ofl' the ' layout' for a year. He was very hungry and very weary. He calh d at a house by the roadside and there lie saw a woman just taking from the spit a nicely-broiled chicken; The savour of the fowl made liiin ravenous.

The Wheat Market. In spite of the many factors which appeared to combine for the improve ment of the market wheat has not advanced much above the equivalent of 4s or 4s 2d per bushel in (Sydney. Recent intelligence by cable lias done much to dispel the anticipa tions which were indulged in re specting the probability of a scarcity in Europe. India, it is stated, will export 1,000,000 tons, and Argen tina 800,000 tons. These supplies, enormous as they seem,. would be insufficient if the world's consump tion of the grain had been main tained at the same rate as that of former years. But an advance in the price of any food staple always checks its consumption, as consumers resort to foods of a cheaper class, or otherwise content themselves with smaller supplies. ...

How to Help the Local Paper. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 26 March 1898
How to Help the Local Paper. You can aid your newspaper greatly by giving the local-paper your general printing ; if you do not feel ab|e to run an advertisement^ surely you can af ford to give the newspaper your cards, dodgers, billheads, envelopes, and all business printing to execute. The newspaper'man needs it, and it_;helps to pay the thousand and one free no tices he gives you and your.town ;■ but don't give it to the travelling canvasser who can give you no such retui'n, and is spending neither time, money, nor" brains in helping, you to .build up your district.' -The, - time may come when a newspaper may live.simply upon the revenue derived from the subscriptions and advertisements, - but no ordinary newspaper -in. any ordinary town can ; exist without auxiliary . support derived from general printing. Therefore,if you want a good newspaper—one that will: still help your town—give it all your printing. ' • ■
