A Lover from Dartmoor. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 13 January 1899
A Lover from Dartmoor CHAPTER I. A GANG of men were at work with pickaxes and shovels on a stony road beneath a drear, autumnal sky. The dreariness of the sky and the stoniness of the road seemed in some subtle fashion to be reflected in their faces. &nbsp; They looked like men who had bidden adieu to hope for ever. Even a stranger could have told you in a moment why those men looked &nbsp; thus. The. hideous black arrow on their clothing, and the warders who stood over them with loaded muskets in their hands, were sufficient to tell all who saw them that they were con- victs from the huge prison which loomed grim and dark in the distance. &nbsp; It was the prison whose very name sends a shudder through many an English bosom—Dartmoor. Along the road which led from the railway station came a high, light dog- cart, driven by an elderly gentleman. By his side was a young lady in a tra- velling costume of dark grey cloth, and and a black hat with a saucy little s...
THE GATTON TRAGEDY. (From the Brisbaue Courier.) [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 13 January 1899
THE GATTON TRAGEDY. (From the Brisbane Courier.) The New Year has opened with the recent tragedy agitating the minds of all in the Gatton district. So far no light has been thrown on its mystery. The three victims lie in their graves— graves now made six days ago, and the &nbsp; fiend or fiends responsible for their death are still free. The arm of the law has failed to reach them. Yet no &nbsp; stone is left, unturned ; no exertion is spared ; careful, thoughtful men are at work quietly and patiently following every point aud every clue, and the people who look to the Police Depart- ment to unravel the tangled skein must be patient. The mistakes made in the early history of the case have, so to speak, covered up the tracks of the murderers, and those who now have the work of tracing them out and bringing them to justice are laboring in the dark to a great extent. It may be well here to put plainly before the public what the mistake at the outset was, and to note the...
THE Idle Thoughts OF An Idle Fellow. ON CATS AND DOGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 13 January 1899
THE Idle Thoughts OF An Idle Fellow. ON CATS AND DOGS WHAT I've suffered from them this morning no tongue could tell. It be- &nbsp; gan with Gustavus Adolphus. Gus- tavus Adolphus (they call him "Gusty" downstairs for short) is a very good sort of dog, when he is in the middle of a large field, or on a fairly extensive common, but I won't have him in-doors. He means well, but this house is not his size. He stretches himself, and over go two chairs and a what-not. He wags his tail, and the room looks as if a devastating army had marched through it. He breathes, and it puts the fire out. At dinner-time, he creeps in under the table, lies there for a while, and then gets up suddenly ; the first in- timation we have his movements being given by the table, which ap- pears animated by a desire to turn summersaults. We all clutch at it frantically, and endeavour to maintain it in a horizontal position ; whereupon his struggles, he being under the im- pression that some wicked consp...

The Chronicle. For the cause that lacks assistance, For the wrongs that need resistance, For future in the distance, And the good that we can do. COBARGO, FRIDAY, JANUARY 13,1899. THE Agricultural Show has become quite an institution in almost every country town in New South Wales, and the people anticipate the aunual gathering with considerable pleasure. This is only natural, seeing the limited &nbsp; amount of pleasure obtainable in the average town. These periodical Shows afford a convenient opportunity for friends and relatives long since parted to meet, and in this respect they serve a good social purpose. But this is not the chief end for which these succes- sive exhibitions are held, and for which Governments, year after year, vote large sums in the shape of subsi- dies to Agricultural Societies. It was to encourage farmers to improve the &nbsp; class of live stock, poultry, and agricul- tural products that the Government &nbsp; subsidised country soci...
TILBA TILBA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 13 January 1899
TILBA TILBA. &nbsp; (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) &nbsp; ONCE again it becomes my painful duty to chronicle that the grim reaper has been amongst us and this time taken &nbsp; from our midst a man who was gener- ally respected and esteemed. By the death of Mr. W. E. Seccombe, which &nbsp; &nbsp; took place at his residence last Thurs- &nbsp; day night, the district has lost one of &nbsp; its best known townsmen and has left &nbsp; a vacancy which will be hard to fill. Mr. Seccombe was always to the fore &nbsp; in any public movement that had for &nbsp; its object the advancement of the dis- &nbsp; trict, he was an enthusiastic sports- &nbsp; man, and was secretary for the local &nbsp; Cricket Club for some twelve years, &nbsp; and although not taking an active part &nbsp; &nbsp; in cricket this year, he was an ardent &nbsp; supporter of the game, an...
LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 13 January 1899
LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS. TUESDAY was the hottest day exper ienced this summer the thermometer &nbsp; registering 99deg. in the shade. THE usual monthly meeting of the School of Arts advertised for Tuesday last lapsed for the want of a quorum. ASHTON'S circus performed to a good house on Monday evening. This show is immeasureably superior to the aver- age things that car er the country, and &nbsp; those who wish to see a really good circus should not miss Ashton's. Per- haps the best items were the horizontal bar performances, and the bare-back &nbsp; riding. The clowns were as usual a source of a constant ripple of laughter. We commend Ashton's combination to our northern friends. ON the 26th January the postponed match been the Bega and Cobargo Associations will take place on the local wicket. The following players have been chosen to represent Cobargo: Picalla, W. Boxsell, Hobbes, Ross, Ferguson, (Tilba), A Tarlinton, (Co bargo), Ernest and W. J. Tarlinton, ...

NOTES and SKETCHES from the TILBAS. (Written for the Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 13 January 1899
NOTES and SKETCHES from the TILBAS. BY TYRO. (Written for the Chronicle.) EVERY man who has any small mental capacity, must notice things that take place around him, and seeing these things, their causes and effects, he weighs them, and ponders over them, and philosophizes. Such a man must see that the average man resents any effort made by his neighbour for his benefit, or what the neighbour esti- mates as his benefit. A striking in- stance of the truth of this comes under the notice of the observant man in Central Tilba. Lately, the Messrs. Beadman have &nbsp; taken up their abode in this "metrop- olis," and have applied for a license for the A.B.C. House, Central Tilba's pet "white elephant." Now, when it &nbsp; became known that these esteemed gentlemen intended to apply for a license, the good people of Tilba Tilba, in their open hearted philanthropy, took the matter up, and, to use the words of the " Times " scribe, a petition to the licensing bench was " hawke...
THEY SAY: [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 13 January 1899
THEY SAY: THAT yet another long-haired man who is walking round the world for a wager and cheap " prog " passed through Co- bargo lately ; and That in answer to fond enquiries for the " Chronicle " our devil quoted 3s an inch for all travelling " shows." That one of the best acts at the cir- cus was performed by a local gallant when he dexterously caught the young equestrienne who was unseated in the last scene. That Cobargo sports are much in- convenienced through the Coila pro- &nbsp; gramme not being advertised in their own paper. That judging by the Gatton tragedy &nbsp; the Queensland police are a slow lot; and That had the running to earth of Deeming and Butler depended on their smartness, those gentlemen would pro- bably be still at large. That leaving Gordon out of the Cobargo Association Cricket team was an inexcusable blunder; and &nbsp; That " T. J.' on this season's form should also have been a certainty; and That E. A. Tarlinton and Goodsell shou...
MOUNT DROMEDARY-PAST AND PRESENT. PART II. THE MINING INDUSTRY. (FOR THE Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 13 January 1899
MOUNT DROMEDARY—PAST AND PRESENT. PART II. THE MINING INDUSTRY. (FOR THE Chronicle.) [By Yarraman.] GOLD was first discovered on Mount Dromedary, as far as can be ascer- tained, by Mr. Bate, the pioneer of the district, and by a man named Middleton about the year 1870, in a gully on the south eastern slope of the mountain. It is at the head of this gully that Bailey's battery now stands. The gold was coarse and fairly plenti- ful, and a large number of men were soon at work on the spot—the mineral yielding career of Mount Dromedary &nbsp; had begun. But no fortunes were made at this time although as I have said, in some spots the stuff was very rich (as much as £40 worth of gold being washed from the one dish of dirt) but these ' potholes' were few and far between. Then when this creek became worked out, and it did not take long to become so, followed years of desultory prospecting. Mr. Neil Bayley was the most successful seeker after the precious metal. He discov- ered the ...
HINSTS TO THE AMBITIOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 13 January 1899
HINTS TO THE AMBITIOUS. THESE hints are intended by the Bulletin for aspiring out-west cockies. First, if there's a blind gully any where near your home call it 'Glen Something.' Glen is Scotch, and therefore, squattocratic. If you can't &nbsp; do this call it 'Something Park.' That is English, you know. Mark out a tennis-court, and let the family practise every day. You'll have to hire help to do their work, of course. If you want to go one better than your aspiring neighbours, start golf. If you can possibly borrow the money, build a new house. In any case, be sure and root up the old wire fences, and put a white railing round the 'home paddock.' Get a tutor, or a governess, one handy at the wood-heap or about the house. Better get a governess. Plenty &nbsp; of girls will work on half wages if they are called Miss So-and-so. You score both ways. Get the men to call the kids 'master, and 'miss' if you can ! Put up all the woo-hawks, sewing machines dingoes, and tea ...
THOUGHTFUL FOR OTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 13 January 1899
THOUGHTFUL FOR OTHERS. A ragged woman was crossing the corner of a public park in London, where the children of the poor are ac- customed to play, many of them bare- foot. A burly policeman stationed on the corner watched the woman sus- piciously. Half-way across she stopped and picked up something which she hid in her apron pocket. In an instant the policesman was at her side. With gruff voice and a very threatening manner, he demanded: "What are you carrying off in your apron ?" 'The woman seemed embar- rassed, and refused to answer. (There- upon the officer of the law, thinking she had doubtless picked up a pocket- book, which she was trying to make &nbsp; away with, threatened to arrest her unless she told him at once what she had in her apron. &nbsp; &nbsp; At this, the woman reluctantly un- folded her apron and disclosed a hand- full of broken .glass. In stupid won- derment the policeman asked: "What do you want with that &nbsp; stuff?" ''If you...
