Salt Bush. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 1 May 1903

Salt Bush. A matter which commends itself to the serious consideration . of Pastora lists and others on the - land is the great good to be derived from the cul ture of the above. Its capabilities as a drought resistor are. well known, and €is a fodder for- sheep and cattle it is unequalled. In this connection it takes the place of rock salt, and pre serres all kinds of stock in vigorous healtL . There are two species .which are largely grown viz.; 'Ahtriplez Svni oaccaia .wiucn is very common m America, and is of a dwarf rambling habit j and Nummularia ; or old man salt bush, which.- attains a height, of from 10 to 12 feet, And produces an abundant supply of large sucqulent foKage- The . seed can be obtained from the various seedsnien in Sydney, and it is undoubtedly weUTrorthy of a trial. , ?:'-:.?: :

OLD AGE PENSIONS. (To the Editor Peak Hill Express.) [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 1 May 1903

OLD AGE. PENSIONS. -;» the Editor Peak Sill Express.) Sir,— Will you kindly grant me space in the columns Of your valuable pdper^in reply to '''Bruce -Hall' on. the Old Ago Pensions. I may say in passing, that X had read with deep in-, terast his several letters on Municipal matters, and had formed the opinion from their tone that he was a gentle man imbued with, liberal ideas, and it wns Trifli a feeline* almost akinto'Dain. thatT read his remarks on the above, for at thevery outset he seeks to prove that 'a pensioner is a pauper. -Here are his own words : ', The word pauper means one who is supported by alms,' and it matters not whether the indivi dual is in a Poor House or not. Very good Sir, now let us see how this defi nition pans out ' ts a retired judge a ^pauper; I presume he is, for is he not in receipt of alms in the shape of a pension? Certainly he may have contri buted something to obtain it, but I ask, has not the Olid Age Pensioner also contributed ? Has he not paid hi...

TOMINGLEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 1 May 1903

TOMINGLEY. (From our own Correspondent.) ?It is safe Ho say that never. b'ef«re has a fall of rain in this district caused such nil amount of relief, as that of last week. The record up till Satur day was 325 points, and on Sunday following, -we were treated to what can only be described as a most extra ordinary occurrence. In tho afternoon ? a strong wind began to blow, and ~-a«i+i-ri in a mnqf violent and t-ro- nounceddust storm, but unlike most; dust storms of late it was followed by a heavy shower, .and later on by several lighter showers. It is a mys tery where the dust cduld have come 'from, but must have been blown a considerable distance. Tho Farmers' and Settlers' Associa tion is going fairly strong here. The annual meeting took place a short time since, and was well attended. The anrinal report disclosed a fairly active year, and the Balance Sheet a credit.

Fifield. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 1 May 1903

Fifield. (FUOJI OtTR OWN CoRKESPONnENT.') I suppose readers of the Express will tliink that your correspondent lias been on the hunt for our lost Member, but as there was no reward for him, and knowing from experience that where there was a free feed to be got he would be sure to turn up, I did not bother abuut him. My silence was owing to my not having' any good news to chronicle. There have been about 400 loads of dirt washed at Burke's and Jones' anything sensational. Of course, ?through having no store here, the miners had to dish the best of their dirt to send to Trundle and Bogan, Gate for rations, by ooack. This caused the washings to go very poor, ?but Mr. Medcalf has re-opened his store, and I hear that he is going to sell at prices that will put the China men and the Indians out of the market. Our Policeman and Mining Regis trar have been removed owing to short ? age of- funds in the Treasury. Wb/jn;; money is available police barracks. are 3 to be built. ? This too, in sp...

Methodism. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 1 May 1903

Methodism. With reference to the ' Wesleyan -Circuits. in this district, the manner in which' they are now constituted is open to improvement. At present McEhail and Tomingley are embraced by Nar- : romine, while Kndina and Peak Hill are worked from Parkes; The four townships mentioned with their enyi-' ronments would form a compact dis trict, VJ1U BLJ£IUUU til. jjrctiUUb laiBUU 11UIU ' which would handsomely support a Minister. Seeing that this is the case, it appears/to be nothing but fair that the services of a pastor should be obtained. It is at all events, a matter which is well worthy of the considera tion of the Methodists resident in the area named.

Mining. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 1 May 1903

Mining. The chief development of the cur rent week at the deep lead, is the nice prospects obtained by No- 1 south claim — McAuliffe and Partyi Out of 2 troughs washed, 5$- dwts. and 3 dwts respectively have been secured. The specs are very coarse one weighing as much as 49 grains. These prospects have been washed from the drlvj to the south of the shaft.

' ' Violent inflammation and costi venoss were the first warnings I had of this dreaded complaint. The agony I experienced during these two years was awful. My work is mostly among the theatres (in tho flies) and often when the show was over, I have felt that it would bo impossible for me to return on the following night, and, in fact, this complaint caused me to lose fully five weeks work.
