General News. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 30 March 1898
General News. Mr, G. B. Bothwell writes to the American Sheep Breeder: "I have scanned carefully the portraits of the two-famous ioooguinea rams recently sold in Sydneey and Melbourne, Aus tralia, and," with all due respect to the breed, would ask if they are anything new under the sun ! Have we not just such miserable monstrosities with us, lo, these many years past ? Where did these sheep spring from if not from Vermont anccstry ? This country was overrun with such trash loog before Australia had any such sheep as the ram sold at Melbourne, . . . Had those excessively wrinkled sheep been profitable they would be with us still and in large numbers. I am very glad you published the portraits of those rams, Jor sensible sheepmen of this country can see how vain and simple some of those Australian men have gotten 011 this sheep question." Nearly everyone puts unripe toma toes, etc., in the sun to mature. This is a mistake, for the sun ferments their chemical constituents, and rots ins...
EXTRACTS REFERRED TO. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 30 March 1898
EXTRACTS IlEFEltRED TO. "The drawing for tho art union in connection withSt. Mary's. Eair took , place at the St. Patrick's Day sports; meeting, Association Cricket Ground, yesterday. '' The' winning number of the first prize was 339,067, 'which had been issued to James Malone, of New Zealand. The amount of the prize is £500." ; " No zeal !> Above all things else no zeal [" Apparently that would be an excellent motto for. future use by the rulers of St. Luke's Church, Ked fern, who have jj.ust been donounced, ex cathedra, for " running a religious tote," as the charge was forcibly put bj- the Grand Inquisitors. There was a deal of the Jackdaw of Hheims con demnation business about this matter, however, and it is significant to find that no one was able to contradict the Kev. Mr. Curtis' plain statement that " it is impossible in many instances to get the money required by churches without resorting to fairs and bazaars."
A Distinguished Visitor. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 30 March 1898
A Distinguished Visitor. Some curiosity was evinced by several townspeople as to the identity of a visitor of ample proportions who within the last few days has been seen fossicking about in the creeks and gullies in the neighbourhood. In quiries elicited the fact that the visitor was none other than Mr. H. Copeland, M.P., who is a practical miner, with very large experience; but what was the exact nature of his investigations here we have not heard.

To the Editor of the Chronicle.

The object of1 bringing this matter before you is,not because of any desire on'mj' part to set the law in motion, or to see others do so—it is merely to point out, and by these recent in stances to emphasise the anomaly of retaining on the Statutes a la,v which has not only always been regarded by the public as more honored in the breach than .the. observance, but oue. that leaves it entirely to the...
Work. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 30 March 1898
Work. By Lady Cook, (nee Tennessee Claflin). It shows the occasional perversity of social sentiment that the state of. least value should often be most esteemed, that labour should be scorned and affluent idleness held in honour. Thus the general ambitioivof those engaged in work of any kind, and especially in manual work, is to escape from it, to gather riches and retire; for, with a large class, a gentleman is not as in old times, a man of gentle birth or gentle mannris, but simply one'who can live without work. We have grown so sordid that wealth overshadows rill. With the multitude, virtue, valour, learning, and abilities, obtain less esteem than riches.. And even when, a stream of titles flows from the 'Royal fountain of dignities, these are almost solely bestowed upon the very weal'.hy. If to preserve an appearance of im partiality, a man celebrated fur: worth or genius here and there.; receives one, it is only some scrappy thing, the slightest on the - list. It would be. unpa...
The Farmers' Party. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 30 March 1898
The Farmers' Party. The party being- organised by Mr. Ben. Cowan, President, of the local Farmers' Union, for the purpose of visiting the Hawkeshury Agricultural 'Golioge, will leave Muswellbrook on Monday afternoon next. The party, it is expected, will number 25, and will be one of the largest that has so far visited the college farm. ^Nothing is being left undone by the promoter to make the trip a success, and the party, besides learning a great deal, will probably improve the opportunity by urging our claims to the establish ment of an experimental farm in this district. Mr. Cowan has applied for a special carriage for his party, nnd wishes the members to be at the sta tion in good time..

There are 800 public-houses in Sydnej' and its suburbs, and 760 of these sell drink on Sundays, This is an official fact published by the Police Department, which has placed it on record that-95 per cent, of the Sydney hotels set tho Sunday closing law at defiance. If a constablo was to walk out blindfolded, it would, therefore, be just 20 to one on the first public house that ho ran against being an habitual Sunday trader. Yet, with their ej-es wide open, tho force went out last Sunday, and only struck one out of tho whole 7G0. In that case tho vigilant officer got a clue by seeing a wotnan leiiving the placo with a bottlo of boer. The present week will probably prove or.o of International importance for it is evident that something very definite must be dono in connection with tho great complications now en gaging the attention of tho world. The latest cables indicate that affairs in tho East have reached a stage when diplomacy may bo expected to give way to stronger measures, and...
