'The South African Constabu lary is up to its -foil strength, .and the '' civil, military and railway police have t-eeh raised above strength, to provide for applicants, and still there are thousands of applications left. . There were 9000 applications for commissions in the South African Constabulary alone. Many Australian officers have been bitterly disappointed. During the war they were offered good positions, but tbey desired to remain with the fighting columns until the end of the war, thinking they were sure of at least as jpod\. positions as had been offered to them. When peaoe came theyfound tbatthere were no positions at all left for them. At present it is between the tides; There are none of the good 'positions created by the war, nor the better conditions yet to be 'produced by peace.

The Great Melba. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 3 October 1902

The Great Melba. The first offer to Madame Melba for an Australian tour was £200 apiece for a series of sixteen concerts. Last year Mr. J. C. Williamson sent the price up to £400 per night, a total of about £6400, but the queen of soDg could not be prevailed upon to visit her native land at that figure. It is generally understood that Mr. Musgrove has agreed to fee Melba at £500 per concert, or a total sum of £9000 during her Australian season. Every available seat has been booked for the diva's five Melbourne concerts. It is unlikely the great singer will visit Molong.

A Startling Fact. What High Wages are Responsible for. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 3 October 1902

[?] What High Wagesare Responsible for. fOONTItlBOTED.J Lately, in New .South Wales, the Railway Commissioners were forced by Parliament, which is under the thumb of tbe so-called Labor Party in i that- State, to raise the wages and shorten the hours of their employees. ? This was done in tbe face of a- serious falling-off in tbe railway revenue, and in tbo teeth of the worst drought ever experienced. Now, what is the re sult? Tbe Commissioners have to dis continue trains to many parts of the State, and to dismiss a number of men, who have to join the vast and increasing army of unemployed, which body is, entirely, a product of high wages. In every direction and in every department of business higher wages than tbe price of produce will allow mean lessened employment ; tbey mean that a few favored men get tbe wages, and thousands get nothing. It is to be seen* in tbe gardens of the suburbs of Australian cities, where, if men could be got at 5s a day, hundreds would be employed, but ...

Saved fey a Corset. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 3 October 1902

Saved *-y a Corset. The doctors are always denouncing corsets, but ' the doctor proposes ana fashion disposes.' We may mention for tbe information of bachelor readers tbat stays or corsets are an article of female apparel, after the fashion of a straight jacket, and .worn round the fcody. It has strips of iron, and the machine when fixed on is tightly laced fore and aft and imparts to the wearer a no-where-to-put-her-dinuer Innlr which is much admired. Its particular charm is that it makes the female waist more circumnavigate for tbe male arm. Corsets bave, however, proved beyond doubt their usefulness, let doctors sav what they will, for at Lismore last week a young lady's life was saved bv her stays. A young man named Sharpe was playing with a gun- and n6t knowing it was loaded, pointed it at her and pulled the trigger The gun went off but her stays deflected the shot and not a single grain entered taiSaaa£ahoweVM' Mti-rari» ?

Good and Bad Cows. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 3 October 1902

Good and Bad Cows. Only a rich man can afford to keep poor cows, but it is only the poor man who does keep them. The rich man who looks carefully after the dollars, pays a biph price for an animal, and still makes a profit ; the poor mo.11 buys a poor cow, thereby saving money in the wrong place, and then works double time, feeds more ioou, geis returns and comes out a loser at the end of the year. Better buy one good cow than two poor ones, for the same amount of money. The old parable of the' man who built his house upon tbe sand applies to other things besides houses, although fre quently tbeapplication istiotso evident.

Wool Report. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 3 October 1902

Wool Report. 'Winchcombe, Carson & Co., Limited, report, under date of 1st October : New wool is still coming to hand very slowly, and it seems certain that the quantity to be offered at tbe opening sales on 7th and 8th instant will be very small. And the deficiency m will be accentuated by tbe ' fact that buyers are already present in full force, all anxious to buy. Tbe inevitable result will be a strong market, -and good prices for tbe wool available— better prices, probably, than ?mill be forthcoming at later sales when supplies are heavier. Since last reportipg tbe market continues firm , prices are unchanged, so far as sales by private treaty afford any indication . We soil on the 8th October.

Tomingley Talk. For the sake of being like other people, or as much like them as a coon like me can get, I will' just commence my letter by commenting on the weather which satisfies no one at the present time. ? There seems to be a great hold on the rain, andjpst as great a hold on the grass font will not grow even when it gets moisture. We have had good rains and v«f. snrlnor «mma ' ileniorl tn thin RheeD cursedooantry. That infernal industry which hasever propagated and perpetu ated eternal insplvency, squalor, ignor ance,misery and^white slavery hastrod den out the roots, and groundthe seeds of all the grasses which Nature provided but will never provideagain. So between dustand eheep and rabbits, few are as dusty as we. Yesterday morning old Jack the Feeler said ' Coboan wala come up.' I .asked Wm bow lie knew it, and he pointed to the West where some heavy clouds seemed to be rising. Well, said I, what about them ? Then he pointed to the east, from which direction the wind was ...

High Price for Wool. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 3 October 1902

lligli Price for Wool. # ? O— We have been shown a cabled advice of the sale in London of wool grown by Mr. H. C. Rogers, of Killaloolah (via Obley), and shipped by him through the Commercial Bank, Dubbo ; 126 bales of greasy fleece averaged 12Jd per lb, and 24 bales scoured pieces, &c., averaged 14£d per id. lhese prices must be' very satisfactory to Mr. Rogers, and speak well not only for the quality of the sheep and his good management, but also for the wool-growinp capability of his country. It is the custom of brokers to argue that Sydney prices are always equal, minus freight, to those ruling in London, which argu ment is doubtless sound up to a certain point, but there is always the J possibility of an owner being persuaded to sell when the wool is in his broker's stores, whereas once on board ship, he is bound, on a rising market such as during the past 18 months or so, to get the benefit of the increase in price. ? This was exactly Mr. Rogers' experi ence with his 1...

Out West. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 3 October 1902

Out West. If you want to prosper in any town out- West, don't pay your way. Pay ing your way is fatal. The westerner lives on a system of barter, swap, and exchange. Nobody gives you a job unless you owe him something and be wants to work it off ; it takes all the jobs be can give to Collect his own debts. If you aren't in debt to any body nobody will employ you ; if you are in debt to everybody you get all the work they have to give, unless somebody is deeper in debt than you are. Owe nothing outside your own district if you can help it ; inside your own district owe all you can to as many people as you can, and do it as long as you can.

Whining. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 3 October 1902

Whining. If there is a cowardly trait in human nature more disagreeable than another, it is whining. The man who goes from home whining and fault-finding to meet his business perplexities — whining because times are hard, because his plans fail, and to relieve his own surly disposition— is a burthen upon his friends and the community in which he lives. ' You can't ex pect anything better of people nowa days — this country is no place for an honest man 1' And so the croaker goes on, fulfilling his mission of grumbling and whining, year in and year out. Give us a man, and a woman too, for that matter, who have the grit to carry their burthens and do their work without whining. There are no successes that come to people . without labour, thought, privation, care, and application, reaching through years. The whining men and women seem to see nothing good in the past, nothing to hope for in the future — always prophesying misfortune and ruin to the whole country, and siok ness, rheumatis...
