Myra Vale. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Advocate — 27 May 1898
Myra Vale. The Birthdays "honours" are an nounced and no Myra Vale name is mentioned. This is partly owing to the loss of the prophetic vision. Had anyone been able to foresee how brilliantly Bob Wheeler was going to kick goals on her Majesty's Birthday he would almost certainly have been knighted. These feats were performed during a football match between a local team and the Newtown (Sydney) Orlando club. The game was exciting, ' willing,' and vociferous. The local men won by 19 points to four, partly because they were too good for the visitors at any time, and partly because the visitors expended too much energy in bluff and bluster. For Myra Vale P. Bresnahan achieved 2 tries, and Ryan, Walsh and Cleary one each. Two tries at awkward angles and in a high wind were neat ly converted into goals by the Wheeler aforementioned. The visi tors' 4 points were obtained by a smart goal from the field by T. Vaughan. At night a social was held in aid of the cricket club. The attendance was ...

The War. SICKNESS IN CUBA. AMERICA CAUTIOUS. HER FORCES PREPARED. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Advocate — 31 May 1898
The War. SICKNESS IN CUBA. AMERICA CAUTIOUS. HER FORCES PREPARED. America has deemed it advisable, owing to the great mortality now pre vailing, and the near approach of the unhealthy season in Cuba, to take pre cautionary measures for safeguarding ?tne neaitli ot her forces engaged there. As showing the imperativeness of this step, not only have her own forces been prepared, but arrangements are being made to supply, the insurgents with medical stores. Taking to ac count the sf.rious recommendations of General Wyles, Col. P. A. Hoffoinn, and other known military nxperts, it may safely be concluded that in the medicine chest room will have been feund for Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People, which effected such a marvellous cure in the case of Mr. John Hiunigan, of 18 Biy-Btreet West, Sydney. ' My illness,' said Mr. Hinnigan to the reporter who called upou him, 'starlwJ as a goDd many other ill nesses do— just a cold, aud at first I didn't take much notice of it, for I've often ...
