^ X JOICH and (Eammcitfa. THE A.M.P. Society's bonus-certifi cate form is only about the size of a bank note, but the certificates with the accompany ing circular issued for this one year alone weighed just about a ton-and-a-half. FBOM inquiries made in Brisbane it seems that at the meetings of the unemployed money has been collected regularly from sympathisers. This money has got into the lianas of some of the agitators, who refuse to part with it. The first secretary is at present undergoing a sentence under tho Vagrant Act.

STORIES TOLD Round the Camp Fire A BET ON THE BOAT RACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 12 July 1892

STORIES TOLD IT may be true, as the seer says, that there is no new thing under the sun, but that there are ever new permutations and arrange ment of known ingredients under the Booty pall -which serves us Londoners for sky will not, I think, be denied. Unfortunately for the speculators in coffee palaces, it is no new thing to see a jovial body of inebriates declaring with wearisome iteration that " they won't go home till morn ing," it being clear to everyone but them selves that, without assistance, they couldn't if they would. Equally grievouB is it that these irresponsible gentlemen are not infre quently-at the time when moro respectable men are plunging into the unnecessary tub dressed in the regulation claw-hammer coat and white tie of evening. It is not wholly contrary to experience to find a four-in-hand drag drawn up opposite the Humane Society's House in Hyde Park, nor is it a fact that a howling mob and a posse of policemen never come into collision in the early hours of ...

THE BLACKAL.L HOSPITAL. WE arc informed that last week the com mittee of the lilackall hospital met to consider applications from medical practitioners for the appointment of surgeon to the institution.

Original Poetry. The Man Who Plays the Flute. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 12 July 1892

The Man. Who Plays the Flute. I love the man who knows it all, From east to west, from north to south; Who knows all things both great and small, And tells it with his tireless mouth. Who holds a, listening world in awe, The wliile he works his iron jaw. Oftimes, in evenings' holy calm When twilight softens sight and sound, And zephyr breathes a peaceful psalm, This fellow brings his mouth around, With its long gallop that can tire The eight-day clock's impatient ire. His good strong* mouth ! He wieldB it well! . He works it just for all its worth: Not Samson's jawbone famed could tell Such mighty deeds upon the earth. He pulls the throttle open wide, And works her hand on either side. Up hill and down, through swamp and sand, It never stops, it never balks, Through air and sky, o'er sea and land, He talks, and talks, and talks, and talks, And talks, and talks, and talks, and talks, And talks, and talks, and talks, and talks. Good Lord, from evils fierce and dire, Save us each day-f...

A SUSPICIOUS CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 12 July 1892

A SUSPICIOUS CASE. On July 6th a man named Oliver, with wife and child, passed Bowen Downs (says our cor respondent) and camped on Cornisn Creek, at the Tower Hill Crossing. At 10 o'clock the nest morning they reported that the child died at 12 o'clock the previous night. Mr. Eraser, J.P., and Dr. Williamson,.of Williamson and Thornton, Tower Hill, who had arrived about midday, went to view the body. The Dr. could give no opinion as to causa of death, and the parqpts' answers not being satisfactory, Mr. Fraser refused an order for burial, and sent a special messenger in to Muttaburra for the Government medical officer.

Col. Starbottle's Client. CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 12 July 1892

Col. Mottle's Client. Br BEET HAETE. Author of " The Luck of Soaring Camp," " Tales of tbe Argonauts," " Tales of the Pacific Slope," &c., 4c. CHAPTER III. APPILY Miss Sally thought mote of /-frJ her present mission than the past errors of her people. The faster she walked the more vividly she pictured the possible complications of this meeting. Sbe knew the dull, mean nature of her aunt and the otter hopelessness of all appeal to any thing but her hopeless cupidity, and saw in this fatuous essay of Corbin only an aggra vation of her worst instincts. Even the dead body of her son would not only whet her ap petite for pecuniary vengeance, but give it plausibility in the eyes of their emotional but ignorant neighbors. She bad still less to hope for from Julia Jeffcourt's more honest and human indignation but equally bigoted and prejudiced intelligence. It is true they were only women, and she ought to have no fear of that physical revenge which Julia had spoken of, but she ref...

THE LAND GRANT. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 12 July 1892

THE LAND GRANT* Ddbino the discussion i amendment by Mr. Nelson. surer Baid he could give info House by naming districts of deal was known all over the w railways in which, if the bill w morrow, tenders could be in by the week. They were: From CharlevUl gomindali, in the south ; from Longr the Thompson River to the western bo the colony; and from Hughenden to the ern border. (Che&s.) Tiie same argum applied to the line from Croydon to Geo town, as the syndicate could first make line pay, and then get the best possible pri for the land. Compliance with the amend ment would mean the delay of any contract for two years, and he thought they Bhould go the shortest possible way to get the results wished for. (Cheers.) The amendment was subse quently rejected by 31- to 16.

How to train Mice. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 12 July 1892

How to train Mice, FERDINAND SENN knows more abont raising white mice probably than any other mini in America, and Thomas Moody knows more about training them. A writer in an Ameri can paper gives an explanation of how they are trained. Mr. Senn, it says, took a conning little mouse, white as snow, from his coat pocket . and put it on bis shouldei. The mouse looked Xound for a moment, then ran across Mr. Senn's back and eat down on bis other shoul der. Before setting it at liberty he held the mouse loosely in his left band and softly stroked its bead and back with big right band. "Do they never bite you f" Mr. Moody answered for him, for Mr. Moody does the training: " Never, if they are proper ly bandied. Wben a boy picks op a white mouse he is very likely to squeeze him tight to keep him safe ; then tbe mouse tnrnB round and bites. But take them np so -gently-without squeezing them at all, and they do not even think of biting you. See here." j He took the mouse from Mr. Senn's band...

ISISFORD HOSPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 12 July 1892

ISISFORD HOSPITAL. A CORRESPONDENT says:-Several contrac tors at Longreach have drawn attention to the fact that the plans for the above institution being on view at Barcaldine is unfair to them also to the institution, and consider that, as the building is to be erected partly by public money, contractors in other placeB than Bar caldine and Isigford should have a chance of tendering for same. Time still admits of a move being made in this direction. [Plans of buildings cannot be sent to every town in the colony, and probably the committee of the Isisford hospital thought the 'contractors in Longreach had enough work on hand at pre sent without tendering for outside places. , However, Mr. Campbell took the plans and specifications to Longreach last week, at the 1 request of intending tenderers, and other per sons desirous of putting in tenders can aee the , plans any day at the Champion office.

The Western Champion. Vita sine literis mors est. BARCALDINE. TUESDAY, JULY 12, 1892. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 12 July 1892

jjhc H^tcru ||hainpion. Vita sine Uteris mors est. BARCALDINE. TUESDAvTHwigT IT would be difficult to form a correct estimate of the number of unemployed in the Queensland bush, but it may safely be assumed they are greatly in excess of those out of work in Bris bane at the present time, although these latter may appear more numer ous because they gather together in crowds and thus attract more notice. It may be safe to assume that if there are 500 unemployed men in Brisbane there are four times that number wan dering about the stations looking for jobs, and who have not been able to obtain present work or promise of en gagement. Such a condition of affairs is disquieting and distressing. States men, whether they are Ministers or Labor members, seem to be able to suggest no satisfactory remedy; and all that has been done to relieve dis tress is in the shape of indiscriminate charity. The Government are distri buting rations in the towns, and the squatters are doing it in the country...
