But, poor fellows, they scarcely require such help. Our correspondent writes as follows:-I am u great believer in recent form being a guide for backing horses, and of the twenty-five horses cugaged in the B.C.R.C. Handicap over a distance of two miles, I feel certain the winner is concealed from amongst Beche-de Mer, Buckingham, Mariner, Twilight, Orion, Royalty, and Aviemore, and expect to soe a win for either Buckingham or Beche-dc-Mer, who may be followed home by Twilight and Mariner.

Mr. J. W. Booker presided. The Chairman proposed the health of Dr. Hewer, which. was drunk in an enthusiastic manner. Dr. Hewer suitably replied.

GOVERNMENT INSTITUTIONS AT LONGREACH. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 2 August 1892

GOVERNMENT INSTITUTIONS AT LONG REACH. Onu Post and Telegraph Departments still continue to be run in a most disgraceful man ner in bo far as the convenience of the public is concerned. The chief cause of annoyance is in the delivery of mails, considering tiie short time allowed for replying to letters. The local officials are in no way to blame, as it is impos sible for Mr. Elliott, who is station-master and post-master with one assistant, to deliver in one hour and a quarter (provided the train arrives to time) the correspondence, parcels, &c., that come by the mail trains to Long reach twice a week before 6 p.m. on the eve ning of their arrival, and, as a consequence, letters of considerable importance do not reach the recipient until it is too late to reply to them by return mail, which leaves at an early hour the following niorninp. Some little time ago there were four assistants in the office, but even then there were none too many, and in an important place like Longr...

I ODDFELLOWS' HALL. THE ball held ia the Longreach Hall on Wed nesday evening last in honor of the inaugura tion of the Oddfellows' Lodge at Longrcack was a great success.

THE benefit tendered to Miss Hope by Mr. Johnston, Miss Travers, Mr. Clifford, and local amateurs in tho Longreach Hall, on Thursday evening last, was not so well attended as was anticipated, which in some degree may be accounted for by the large attendance at the Oddfellows' ball on the previous evening, many persons who had purchased tickets fall ing to turn up.
