Condobolin. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 14 January 1898

TfROM OUIl OWN CORRESPONDENT,.) A report la to band that a new find of reef has been made near the Yellow Mountains, Melrose, and that the prospectors are satisfied with a trial crushing. Operations have been resumed at the Cugong mine, and a satisfactory crushing is expected during next month. A batch of ludian hawkers were refused their licenses the other day by the local bench. This action cannot be too highly commended, as this and the refusal of all parties—station owners, selectors, and employers—to purchase from them would have the effect of driving them out of the district; and on the other hand the action of a property owner is much to be regretted in accepting them bb tenants, as besides their pernicious habits they will as sure as the sun rises become the curse of the laad. The rabbit plague, bad as it is felt, will be nothing in comparison to the damage that will be done by such a tribe. The river has now ceased running, and fish are dyiag in thousands, Fortunately the n...

THE Western Champion AND PARKES AND FORBES REPRESENTATIVE. FRIDAY, JANUARY 14, 1898. Editorial Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 14 January 1898

THE AND PARKES AND FORBES REPRESENTATIVE. FRIDAY, JANUARY 14. 1898. The second annual report of the Public Service Board will be read with a good deal of interest throughout the country. The Board deals directly with the interests of that immeuse body of persons who form the Civil Service of New South Wales. Iadi rectly its operations affect the pros perity of the whole colony, for the expenditure which pays the Civil Servants comes of course from the pockets of the public generally, si: & With regard to the first, the Board haB had a difficult and not altogether grateful task. The reason of its appointment was that the Service was known to be altogether unwieldy and over-grown. Yet, no Ministry could find time or opportunity- tp: grapple with the evil, even if ,^oy Ministry could have been found wil ling to incur the odium of attempting to grapple with it. Hence the appointment of the Board. # No surprise need be feit that the Board has excited a great deal of odium. It had...

Family Notices [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 14 January 1898

DEATH OF MR. G. W. SIMS. Quite a gloom was cast over the   town this morning (says the " Norman Chronicle" of December 15), when the residents learned that Mr. George William Sims, senior partner of the firm of Sims and McLain, forwarding agents, town carters etc., Normanton, had passed away last night. On Monday about 2 o'clock, Mr. Sims drove away from town in the best of health and spirits to get a load of wood, and when between the Three Mile and the Burkefcown turn off on the Donor's Hill road he dropped the reins on the near side ; without stopping the horses he stepped out on to the shaft to pick them up, but in- stead, overbalanced and went over the off side, grasping the breeching as he fell. The horses becoming frightened started off at a canter and dragged him along until he had finally to let go his hold and falling to the ground the dray passed over his body. He quickiy regained his feet, but was too badly hurt to bother about the horses, and started back f...

Our Neighbours. (FROM OUR EXCHANGES.) DUBBO. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 14 January 1898

(FROM OUR EXCHANGES.) DUBBO. Dr. Tibbits, who practised here with     much success for years, has returned   to Dubbo, and recommenced the practice of his profession. The sudden death of an old woman named Pippen, aged 71 years, wife of a laborer residing at Mitchell's Creek, has been reported to the coroner, Mr. R. G. Dulhunty, J.P. She was seen alive at 2 o'clock on Wednesday, but found dead in her hut at 4 o'clock the same afternoon. It was supposed that heat apoplexy was the cause of death. Two inquiries have been held during this week by Mr. R. G. Dulhunty, J.P, coroner. The first was at Narromine, into the death of a youth named James Fynn, who was drowned in the Macquarie on Sun day. The coroner found that death was accidental. The other inquiry   was held in Dubbo, into the cause of death of an old woman named Pippin, which occurred at Barbigal.

YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 14 January 1898

YOUNG. The drought still continues, and the country here ia not looking very attractive. On Friday night we had a shower, which freshened the air, but will have no other appreciable effect. We are also having our share of bush fires. Messrs. Browne Bros., of   Memagong, have lost nearly 3000 acres of grass from this cause, and a fire on Stoney Creek destroyed about 300 acres of grass, 30 acres of crop, 158 bags of wheat, and a stack of hay. The wheat crops are now being harvested, and are in most cases yield- ing better than was anticipated, though a good daal of the wheat is more or less pinched. On the whole, the out- look for the new New Year is not of the brightest, but as the most serious dread is a water famine there is the constant hope that a downpour of rain may avert this contingency at any moment.

The Storm. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 14 January 1898

The intense heat of the early part of the week culminated on Wednes day night, or rather yesterday morn ing, in the record rain-storm locally of the quarter-century. During the early part of Wednesday eveniDg rain clouds banked up on the northern horizon, and shortly after nine o'clock a light rain began to descend. This continued till about 11, when the moon shone out. At midnight the sky had again become overoaat. Soon after light rain again set in, and gradually increased • in volume till about 2 o'clock, when it appeared as though a water-spout had burst over the town. For a few hours the ram descended in torrents. Watercourses and gutters were unequal to the strain, and very soon the streets were miniature seas of water. The flood water rushed down the hills with a roar, sweeping soil and debris before it. Fences were swept awav, the blinding was washed off the whole of the streets; while in numerous pri vate residences as well as business houses the water was fully a foot deep...

[By Bertha M. Clay.] CIIAPTEE XXVI—(Continued.) Guy 'arid. Maida Raised him be tween them, and with an arm on each, he went slowly along the cdrriclo.r to his room. At the door he .tiirned and laid his hands on their heads. ■ 'Heaven, bless von, my chil dren !' ho murmured, and passed in. Guy put his hand out to Maida, but with a strange look she sank down on the mat and leaned her head against the door. 'No, no,' she said brokenly; leave me here.' Guy stooped with a look of alarm and raised her in his arms. ' Come,' he said gently, 'you cannot stay here.' 4 Yes, it is my place ! I am his daughter! ilis daughter ! He hesitated a moment, but as it would never do to let her re main there, he said: ' Yes, you are his daughter, but you will be my wife. Gome !' At the word wife she started, looked at him fiercely, then turned her head away, and let him lead her to her room. ^ It.was a strange betrothal.

A Lady Attacked and Robbed at Baiiarat. The following remarkable com munication has reached, us from the romiDg centre of Ballarat -A young lady, daughter of one of the oldest residents and miners, Miss Pannv Simpson, of Victoria-street, says : u I was attacked by the most excruciating pains in my Bides, and vomiting which followed immediately after every meal. Mother took me the hospital, and she was told my kidneys were affected. " The doctor said I had inflam mation of the kidneys ana incipient consumption ; but the medicine he gave me relieved me only for a time, and that in a month I was as bad aB ever. From that time until nine months since I have had a continual sequence of sickness, and have been entirely robbed of good health. I have seen several doctors at different times, ana one would describe my health as one thing and another as 8ometliiog else. However, the last two seen decided I was suffering from Bright's disease of the kidneys, and commenced to treat me for such. ...
