Australian Sheep Shearers. WHAT THE NEW YOBK Times SAYS ABOUT THEM. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 2 August 1892

Australian Sheep Shearers. WHAT THE NEW YOBK Times BATS ABOUT THEM. AUSTRALIAN sheep-shearers represent one of the most characteristic communities to be found in the bush. Tbey are a noinadic race, following the course of the seasons as unerr ingly as the birds. Beginning their operations in the nortb, where the spring conies on the earliest, tbey follow the sun southward f om station to station, until the closing season finds them completing work in the stations nearest the sea. Work for three months is brisk, and thousands of men find ready and lucrative employment. Some stations have over three hundred thousand sheep, and employ hundreds of men, who, in the brief period of their engagement, acquire enough money to carry them through I the rest of the year in a condition of elegant j leisure. Comparatively few of the shearers make a frugal or commendable use of tbeir money. After the arduous labor of the shear ing sheds, the mind of man naturally turns to means of recreation. How ...

RAILWAY EMPLOYEES' QUARTERS [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 2 August 1892

RAILWAY EMPLOYEES' QUARTERS Ouu attention has been drawn to the dis graceful accommodation offered by the Kail way Department, to the porters at'Longreach. Fancy men having to sleep and eat in railway trucks, also cook outside in oil drums, which they have had to do for months past. In other parts of the colony where the climate is more genial and they have less work to do than at Longreach, attention is paid to the comfort of the porters by the railway department; and why should they, in addition to being over worked, be thus treated ?

A Women's Betting Hell. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 2 August 1892

A Women's Betting Hell. THE New York Herald gives a des cription of a betting bouse in that city frequented by women. American women, it is wdl known, have a strong predilec tion both for the speculative side of commerce, and for gambling pure and simple. But with regard to the latter amusement they do not possess the same facilities as men, and the New York police have steadily resisted the efforts of enterprising " pool-sellers" to make bet ting on horse racing as easy for women as for men. One, "Allen," however, has contrived to surmount the difficulty and has started an annexe for women in a cellar which is said to be doing a brisk trade. This is how a lady correspondent of the Herald describes the place, which is situated in a low neighborhood :-" The pool-room itself, with its women's annexe, is in thorough keeping with all its sur roundings. Dirty, revolting, as badly ventilated as the Black Hole of Calcutta, it is one of the worst of the establish ments of its kind." Unattra...

HOSPITAL BENEFIT. THE D'Arcy Stanfield Company kindly gave an entertainment in the Marathon Hall, Aramac, last Wednesday evening, in aid of the local hospital. Our correspondent says : The hall was crowded. A nice little programme was arranged for the occasion, and every item was well received by the large and appreciative audience. Trevious to the conclusion of the entertainment the secretary of the hospital (Mr. E. W. lJowyer) mounted the stage, and on behalf of the hospital committee thanked the audience for their attendance that evening, and called for a vote of thanks to Mr. Stanfield and his company, which was given by accla mation. A word of praise to Mr. Bowyer would not ho out of place, for it was mainly through his indefatigable efforts that the affair was such a success. I have not heard as to what amount the hospital has benefitted by the entertainment. The company played here last night to a fair house when tliey were well received, particularly Miss Eva Clements and Jo...

CHAPTER III. A DISCUSSION ON THE MINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 2 August 1892

CHAPTER III. A DISCUSSION ON THE MINES. Mies Belinda sat, looking at her niece, with a sense of being at once stunned and fascinated. To see a creature so young, so pretty, BO luxuriously splendid, and at the same time so simply, unaffectedly, and com pletely at ease with herself and her sur roundings, was a revelation quite beyond her comprehension. Tbe best bred and nicest girle Slowbridge could produce were apt to look a trifle conscious and timid when they found themselves attired in white muslin and floral decorations; but this slender creature sat in ber gorgeous attire, her train flowing over the modest carpet, her rings flashing, her ear-pendants twinkling, apparently obli vious of, or indifferent to, the fact that all her belongings were sufficiently oat of place to be startling beyond measure. Her chief characteristic, however, seemed to be her excessive frankness. She did not hesitate at all to make the most remarkable statements concerning ber own' and ber father's past ...
