&nbsp; &nbsp; Council Reference. EULOGUSING THE MAYOR. During the Governor's visit many remarked on his unostentatious de- meanour. The same remarks could also have been made about our Mayor, who carried out the duties of the office in a manner very creditable to himself and the citizens of Cobar. &nbsp; This being the first occasion on which he has officiated, all the more credit is due to him. At the Municipal Council meeting held last Wednesday evening the aldermen placed on record their appreciation of Mr Snelson's services. Ald. Hunt moved 'That on the &nbsp; records of the Council be placed the very hearty thanks of the Council to the Mayor for the very able manner in which he had carried out the duties pertaining to the office on the occas- ion of the Governor's visit.'

Benefit Concert. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 30 September 1899
Benefit Concert. The Benefit Concert, held in the Masonic Hall, on Monday evening, was a huge success. Mr Jeffery engineered matters very well indeed. There were nearly 400 people present. We regret that other matters prevent us from giving a fuller report of the proceedings, which were of a high character indeed. The Brass Band played several selections, which were warmly received. Under Mr W. Pryce the Band plays excellent music. Miss Kinkead opened the proceedings with an overture played in a manner well worthy of this young lady's re- putation. Mrs Hooper received a splendid ovation for her excellent rendering of that difficult song 'Tell me my Heart,' while Mr Hooper was equally successful in his old favorite 'The Death of Nelson.' Mrs Mans- &nbsp; field sang 'Lover and the Bird, ' &nbsp; scoring a marked triumph, while Mr Elwin's welcome voice was heard to great advantage in 'The Scout.' &nbsp; Miss Robertson snng sweetly, though a trifle soft, that fin...
MINING. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 30 September 1899
MINING. &nbsp; During the week Cobar has been visited by Mr A. E. Bubbs, secretary of the Anglo-Australian Exploration, Ltd. A representative of the Cobar Herald interviewed him regarding the intentions of the Company he re- presented. This body has leases at Mount Boppy, and on Monday Mr Bubbs secured suspension on these claims until January 1st. Mr Elwin appeared for the Company, there &nbsp; are four shafts on the property, one being down to 200ft. The reef is 10 feet wide at north end, and has been proved for a distance of 900ft. The assay value is from 14dwts to 15dwts. The company has 35,000 tons of ore of above value already developed. At the south end a very large quantity of ore has been developed, but is not as &nbsp; good as at the north end. However, this formation is not at present taken much into consideration. The com- pany will probably work it in with the richer ore at the north end. The main central winding shaft will be &nbsp; sunk ...

A Land Question Pastoralists' Troubles. ENORMOUS LOSSES. APPEAL TO THE MINISTER. HIS REPLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 30 September 1899
A Land Question Pastoralists' Troubles. ENORMOUS LOSSES. APPEAL TO THE MINISTER. HIS REPLY. It will be remembered that in a re- cent issue of this journal it was noti- fied that the pastoralitss of this district decided to approach the Minister for Lands when he visited Cobar with a view to obtaining some amelioration of the distressful circumstances con- tingent on the record drought. Since then our squatting friends have been compiling statistics regarding the actual losses of sheep and the expense of keeping the rest alive. On Wed- nesday morning at 9 o'clock there was a large and representative gathering of influential pastoralists in attendance at the deputation to the Minister for Lands, Mr Hassall. The proceedings took place on the balcony of the Grand Hotel. It wasn't the best place either, because every car that rattled down the Macadamised street deafened the speakers. Mr P. Oakden occupied the chair, and in attendance was Mr Spence, Mr Mayor Snelson, and a number of the l...
Telegrams. SYDNEY. FRIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 30 September 1899
Telegrams. SYDNEY. Friday. Speaking at Harden yesterday Mr Griffith declared that had Mr Reid not been defeated over the Neild affair, he would hare been ousted for his other misdeeds. He added that the Labor Party believed in Mr Lyne's sincerity, and intended to support him. &nbsp; Mr McGowan spoke in a similar tone. The South Australian Premier has informed Sir John Forrest that it was impossible to farther consider the Commonwealth Bill. Sir Charles H. Smith, Comman- dant of the Victorian forces, has drawn up a scheme for the despatch of 300 Victorian troops to the Transvaal, at a cost of £40,000 for a six months' campaign. In the New Zealand House of Eep- resentatives -last night, a motion offering a mounted Infantry force of 200 officers and men to the mother- country in the event of war was car ried with only 5 dissentients, amid a remarkable scene of enthusiasm. The Ministers for Land and Educa- tion have returned from tho country. Mr Perry says that in travelling thr...
Mail Tenders. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 30 September 1899
Mail Tenders. Tenders are called up to Monday, October 16, for the conveyance of the following mails in this district: — &nbsp; 101. To and from Boppy Mountain and Booroomugga, via Sussex, once a week, for one year only, 102.

To and from Cobar and Gil- gunnia, via Lerida, Bulgoo, Central, Belford, Lachlan Downs, Wirlong, Thule, and Bedooba, once a week. Thus the Tweed Herald's on dit man : — ' That the reason eggs are so cheap in Queensland is because the farmers have not to feed their fowls with corn. That the cattle lie down and the fowls pick all the ticks off one side. That the cattle then quietly turn round and' the fowls clean the other side. That the cattle are thus freed from ticks, the fowls fed, and both are satisfied. That the above is another tick-prevention remedy. George Dean, whose ...
Boarding-House Geometry. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 30 September 1899
Boarding- House Geometry. All boarding-houses are the same boarding house. Boarders in the same boarding house and on the same flat are equal to one' another. A simple room is that which has no parts and no magnitude. The landlady of a boarding-house is a parallelogram — that is, an oblong angular figure, which cannot be de- scribed, but which is equal to any thing. A wrangle is the disinclination of two boarders to each other, that meet together but are not on the same floor. All the other rooms being taken a single room is called a double room. A boarding-house steak may be pro- duced any number of times. A landlady can be reduced to her lowest terms by a series of proposi- tions. A line may be made from any boarding-house to any other boarding house. The clothes of a boarding-house bed, though produced ever so far both ways, will not meet. Any two meals at a boarding-house are together less than two square meals. If from the opposite ends of a boat ding-house a line b3 drawn, pas...
Shot Through the Head. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 30 September 1899
Shot Through the Head. An elderly gentleman while walk- ing down one of the principal streets yesterday was alarmed at experiencing a sharp pain that shot through his head. He knew immediately that a headache was throating and being a man cf great good sense, he also knew that the best possible remedy was bile beans for biliousness. These beans, acting directly on the liver, give almost instantaneous relief in all cases of constipation head ache, indigestion, debility, biliousness and similar complaints, which all have their origin in derangement. If the liver gets out of order, as it often does in a climate such as ours, the whole system goes wrong, and as the proper digestion of food is the most essential thing in the sustaining of life, the consequence of bad diges tion must be most disastrous. Bile Boans will keep you well during the trying, hoc, muggy weather that will soon bo upon us. if you get sick, they will put you right. They are tho greatest spcific of the age, and as su...

SANDER AND SONS EUCALYPT EXTRACT According to reports of a great nutnbor of physicians of the highest professional standing, there are offered Eucalypti Extract, which possess no curative qualities. In protection of the world wide fame of Sandeu and Sons' preparition we publish a few abstracts from these reports, which bear fully out that uo reliance oiin be placed in other iroducts:— Dr. W. B. Bush, Oakland, Jal., writes. It is sometimes difficult to obtain the genuine article (Sander and Son's.) I employed difforeiit other pre« parations, they had no therapeutic value no bad effects.
