THE Kalgoorlie Miner. PUBLISHED DAILY. TUESDAY, DEC. 10TH, 1895. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Miner — 10 December 1895
Kalgoorlie Miner. PUBLISHED DAILY. TUESDAY, DEO. IOtii, J895. ; By this time residents of ^fl* and the surrounding districts must more thoroughly appreciate than, perhaps those of any other part of Australia if not the civilised world, the truth of the adage about going abroad to hear news of home. Visitors from England and the Colonies who pay flying visits to the fields, almost invariably consider it their bounden duty to give publicity to their 'impressions,' and the general reader too often loses sight of the fact that they are merely the views of those having but very little actual experience, and that their judgment has been of the mos ; hasty and almost necessarily im perfect character.
