Country Journalism. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 26 September 1902

Country Journalism. ? o — The worst feature of the country editorship is reporting tbe local concert. You have to go because none of the employees will. It's no use to threaten the employees with dismissal, because you always owe tbem three weeks' wages, which you never pay no matter bow long you live. You have to praise everything, and be mighty careful that you don't over do it either. If you praise Mrs. Jinks, the grocer's wife, you're likely to offend Mrs. Binks, the buf'-h«»r's good lady ; then the butcher '.w,l move his advertisement, and take his job - printing somewhere else. If you get a ' two-bob ad.' for a show you have to print a before-hand descrip tion as well as a report afterwards, and for a quarter of an inch advt. you must pay printers (or promise to pay when things look up a bit) to set up two solid columns of small type about the awful show, which nobof'j wants lo read, aaJ everybody swears at, except the people whose names are mentioned. The handicap of country ...

Toogong. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 26 September 1902

Toogong. [From oue own Correspondent.] Since my last we have had a little rain, about an inch altogether. Tbe grass and wheat crops are looking a little better, but we want a fall of a couple of inches before the bot weather sets in, otherwise it will be one of tbe worst summers experienced for many years. Hand-feeding and scrub-cutting is still tbe order of the day. Most of the large stock are very poor abd weak, tbe little shoot of grass seems to have made them weaker still. Sheep jtre picking up a little. Everything is very quiet and dull about b^re. All tbat the people can talk about is rain — and tbe want of it. If you attempt to speak of any thing else, neighbors treat you as being ' a shingle short.' But still, there is the ping pong craze. It is marvellous how some of the bushies have fallen victims, and I believe some of them would play ping pong even if their mother-in-law were dying. Mining is at a complete standstill, owing to want of water.

Cudal. Table Tennis Tournaments. The table tennis tournaments, orgiu* ised by.the School of Arts, -passed; off very successfully. Although the weather was damp and boisterous both nights, there was a splendid attend-; ance of spectators who seemed to take: great interest in the play. Several of the games were very keenly contested, particularly tbat between Miss G. Carmau ' anij Miss Stella Carman. In the gentlemen's tournament J. Mioslow and S. Taylor played a great game, while the ' set ' between Bert Parker and H. McKay (Orange) was doubly exciting, Mr; Parker just win- ning on the last stroke. Master Harold Moran and Victor Carman played an exhibition game, creating great amusement. Miss G. Carman was looked upon as tbe winner from tbe start, but a great surprise was caused when Mr..

Forbes Vires. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 26 September 1902

The town of Forbes would seem to be an unhealthy sort of place for fire insurance business, judging by a report just compiled by the manager of one of the big Sydney offices, Ifrom this report, which covers a period of 4£ years— from February 1, 1898, to Septembers, 1902— it appears that 67 fires have occurred in Forbes, an ~ £ 1 IT mam annnm A o fko average 01 ^ ~ town has about 4000 inhabitants, this represents about one fire per annum to every 267 persons.

Sand In Horses. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 26 September 1902

Sand til Horses. A number of horses have died in this ! district of late, says the Dubbo Liberal, j from eating particles of sand when grubbing up burrs, the sand thus ab sorbed accumulating until the stomach is clogged. A week or two ago we mentioned a case in which some ten pounds weight of sand was found in the stomach of a horse. A resident of f!nlihr»rii-i mad who recentlv lost two valuable animals from this cause, found in the stomach of one 12£lb of sand, and in the other a hardened ball of sand, blocking the outlet ; he asks for a remedy. We' have consulted a well-known stockdwner, who suggests that if it is known horses are absorb ing sand with their picking a drench should be given them of half-a-pound of coffee in which boiling water has been pouted, and administered hot. This might be effective in the early stages.

Our Crown Lands. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 26 September 1902

[?] [contributed.} A bbcent announcement of the Minister for Lands gives occasion to remark tbat probably the most iniquitous Act ever pagjfed jby the New South Wales Parliament is the Crown Lands (Amendment) Act of 1899, which provides for the re-appraisement of land held under Conditional Pur chase. By this Act, with so seemingly innocent a title, a free grant of no less a sum than £8,000,000 is, in practical effect, made from the Public Treasury to the conditional purchasers of tbe lands of the State, for no justifiable reason whatever. The price at which the land was sold to them originally was not excessive ; in fact, there -has always been very strong competition to obtain land whenever an area has been thrown open for Selection, it being often necessary to decide bj ballot among numerous applicants lor the same block. Moreover, the terms of payment are extremely liberal, ex- * tending over a period of many years. And yet tbe price is now being reduced from 20s to various lowe...

Tlie Police Force. —0— Jtjst at present there is a rush of ap plicants for positions . in tbe police force, but as very few candidates are ' physically eligible the following de tails may be Of interest : — An ordi nary foot' constable must be 6ft. lpin. in height, weigh list; 101b., and have a chest measurement of 89£in. A constable, or a candidate^who is 6ft. inn, in neignt must weigh 12st, and show a chest measurement of 40in. A man 6ft. high must draw the scales at 12st. 61b., and measure 40£in. round tbe chest. A candidate's height is measured when he stands in his bare feet, and his chest1 is nude when the lung measurement is taken. It transpires that not one in ten of tbe applicants are aware of the necessary conditions, and think a half an inch of deficiency in height is easily passed over, but such is not the case. Ninety per cent, of the police doing duty in the city are drawn from the country districts, where tbe tail men come from.
