The Western Champion. Vita sine literis mors est. BARCALDINE, TUESDAY, JULY 26, 1892. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 26 July 1892

I he Vita sine Uteris -mors est. BAR~GALO7^ THE Land Grant Bail way . Bill is rapidly passing through the House, and notwithstanding the strong oppo sition of the party who are antago nistic to the whole system, it iB almoBt a certainty that it will become law. The principle is good. It is certain that if additional liues of railway are required to properly develop the re sources of the country, and we have not the money to expend in their con struction, it will be to the benefit of the colony if we can get them made by companies who will accept grants of laud in lieu of cash. The Syndicate who are prepared to construct these lines will bring a quantity of capital into the country and provide employ ment for some thousands of working men. But we are doubtful if this plan will benefit Central Queensland. The choicest land, as Sir THOMAS M'ILWHA.ITII is well aware, is to be found in the interior of this division of the colony; but are any more rail ways really required in this part of...

How a Picture was Lost and Recovered. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 26 July 1892

How a Picture was Lost and Recovered. WBITING of National Gallery pictures, Walter Besant says: Here is a picture -everybody knows it-it is by Jan van Eyck. A husband is taking bis wife by the hand in order to present her to two visitors, whose figures as they ad vance op the long room, are shown in ? the mirror at the back. Now this pic ture once belonged to Margaret of Anstia, ?who sent it, as she thought, with a quantity of other treasures, to Spain. But the ship foundered at sea. So the picture was lost; it vanished for three hundred years. Now, on a certain Sunday morning in j the month of June, and the year 1815, a great battle was fought 'not far from Brussels, in which one Wellington pounded one Napoleon. Among the wounded was a young Scotch officer, who, after the battle, was carried to a neigh boring farmhouse, where he was carefully nursecUuntil he recovered. Before going lie naturally wished to show his gratitude in the usual manner. The farmer's wife, however, refused t...

Original Poetry. The Old Scissors' Soliloquy. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 26 July 1892

The Old Scissors' Soliloquy, I am lying at rest in the sanctum to-night The place is deserted and still To my right lie exchanges and manuscripts white, To my left are the ink and the quill Yes, the quill, for my master's old-fashioned and quaint, But he refuses to write with a pen ; He insists that old Franklin, the editor saint, Used a quill, and he'll imitate Ben. I love the old fellow-together for years We have managed the Farmers' Gazette. And although I'm old, I'm his favorite shears, And can crowd the compositors yet. But my duties are rather too heavy, 1 think, And I oftimes envy the quill As it lazily leans with its mb in the ink While I'm slashing away with a will. But when I was new-X remember it well, Though a score of long years have gone by The heaviest share of the editing fell On the quill, and I tliink with a sigh Of the days when I'd scissor an extract or two From a neighboring editor's leader, Tlier laugh in my sleeve at the quill as it flew In behalf of the gener...

FOR THE SONS OF GENTLEMEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 26 July 1892

FOR THE SONS OF GENTLEMEN. 'S it possible tbat I have been the victim of an imposture?" exclaimed C~9 Mr Rupert Groomes in agitated tones. " It really looks like it." rejoined Mr. Aylwin ; and it is strange tbat 1 should dis cover it in this accidental way. I never knew there was such a title in the Peerage till you told me Lord Benison's son was one of your pupils, and the very next week I ran up against the man himself at a meeting in London." " I never heard of him until his son came to me." '. Rupert, it can't be his son. Lord Reni son told me be had no son. Of oourse be was anxious to have the matter investigated at once ; but I persuaded bim to allow me to speak to you privately first. A scandal of that sort would do you an immense amount of harm." " It would indeed. And it would be too hard if anything went amiss now. My suc cess since this time last year, when I Ten tared to ask your daughter's band has been so very gratifying." «I know you thought me hard-hearted to insist ...

CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 26 July 1892

CHAPTER II. Once within the friendly shadow of the ong belt of pines, Mrs. Baker kept them until she had left tbe limited settle ment of Laurel ran far to tbe right, and came upon an open slope of Burnt Ridge, where she knew Jo Simmons' mustang, Blue Lightning, would be quietly feeding. She had often ridden him before, and when she had detached tbe fifty foot riata from his head stall, he permitted her tbe further recognised familiarity of twining her fingers in his bluish mane and climbing on his back. Tbe tool shed of Burnt Ridge tunnel, where Jo's saddle and bridle always hung, was but a canter further on. She reached it onper ceived, and-another trick of the old days qnickly extemporised a side saddle from Simmons' Mexican tree, with its high cantle and born bow, and the aid of a blanket. Then leaping to her seat, she rapidly threw off her mantle, tied it by its sleeves around her waist, tucked it under one knee and let it fall over hftr horse's flanks. By this time Blue Lightni...

The Rockhampton Races. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 26 July 1892

The Rockhampton Races. Feom the Bulletin we extract tlie following description of the racing at the annual meet ing:-Boeing began with the Six-furlonge Handicap, some surprise being felt at the withdrawal of Sir Oliver and Coronella, both of whom were considered well in. The race proved a capital one, Frank Smith just man aging to laud Mr. Fenwick's Decorum, a useful looking son of Melbourne-Vestal, a winner by a bare head from Mr. W. S. Chappie's filly Priority, who ran splendidly throughout the day. Jidda was just beaten for third place, the favorite Bobadil being next. Miuto was spotted as a good thing for the Selling, and he won easily at the finish from Tiger and Anxiety. Possibly Tiger might have won, but for falling lame during the raoe, which, it may be mentioned, was quite expected. The hurdle race was a fiasco, for all fell or baulked but old V.D.M., who at one time nearly had the track to him self. The old horse won as he pleased, the win being a popular one, and his ride...

SECOND DAY. Racing began with the Flying Handicap, which was considered a good thing for that grand oolt, Sir Oliver, but the winner turned up in that useful mare Edna, with the unfor tunate filly Priority a dose third to Bobadil. In the Selling Bace Baron was left behind, from what was otherwise a good start. Leo won from Beokwith and Anxiety, with Baron lost, though he made up enough ground to give color to the opinion that he might have won if he had got away with the others. Leo was bought in oy hiB owner for £41, tbe olub making thirty one pounds by the transaction.
