CHAPTER II. "AN INVESTMENT, ANYWAY." [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 2 August 1892

CHAPTER II. " AIT INVESTMENT,' ANYWAY." The natural results of these e&ortB was that Miss Belinda was moved to shed a few tears. " I hope yon will excuse my being too atari led to say I was glad to see you," she said. "I have not seen my brother for thirty years, and I waB veiy fond of him." "He said you were," answered Octavia, '. and he was very fond of you, too. He didn't write to you, because he made up his mind not to let you hear from him until he was a rich man, and then be thought he would wait until be could come home, and surprise you.

A FAIR BARBARIAN. CHAPTER I. MISS OCTAVIA BASSETT. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 2 August 1892

A FAIR BARBARIAN. By Frances Hodgson Burnett, Author of " That Lass o' Lowrie's," " Little Lord Fauntleroy," ctc. CHAPTER I. MISS OCTAVIA BASSETT. LOWBRIDGE bad been shaken to its Sji foundations. C It may as well be explained, however, at the outset that it would not take much of a sensation to give Slowbridge a great shock. In the first place, Slovrbridge was not used to sensations, and was used to going on the even respectable tenor of its way, regarding the outside world with private dis trust, if not with open disfavor. The new mills had been a trial to Slowbridge-a sore trial. On being told of the owner's plan of building them, old Lady Theobald, who was the corner-stone of the social edifice of Slow bridge, was said by a spectator, to have turned deathly pale with rage, and on the first day of their being opened in working order, she had taken to her bed and remained 6hut up in her darkened room for a week, re fusing to see anybody, and even going so far as to send b scathing...

NEW SOUTH WALES. SYDNEY, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 2 August 1892

The True Protection. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 2 August 1892

The True Protection. NOWADAYS the fiscal policy is always a prom inent plank in the platform of every politician, yet is it a wise policy on the part of the consumers to place a tax on the articles which* they do not make but only consume ? Sup pose, for instance, the customs duty is 33 per cent, on imported goods, the wages of the laborer in all grades of employment in a country thus protected, Bhould be 33 per cent, higher than in a freetrade country thus making things equal-but, iB it ever the case. True protection, like charity, begins at home, and in these days when the air is laden with microbes, bacteria and other germs of disease, it behoves us all to be on our guard against the common enemy; old age lulls but few, disease slays its thousands and millions, and all because mankind is so apathetic and care less about first signs of approaching sickness. Neuralgia is one of the most positive signs of the approach of some physical affliction., and requires immediate attention, a...

Village Settlements. Rockhampton Bulletin. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 2 August 1892

Village Settlements. Bockhampton Bulletin. COMMENTING recently on tlio village settle ment system of this colony, we noticed it had not been so successful as could have been desired. The Government Emigration Lec turer, Mr. Randall, lias been expatiating upon it in the United Kingdom, with a view of inducing husbandmen to comc to this country, and take up farms. His remarks did sot appear to us to be altogether warranted, and attention has been given to the subject in other quarters, for we have a return just issued to an order of the Legislative Assembly, showing tho progress of the various village settlements throughout the colony. It has been called for by Mr. Black. From this we learn that twenty-seven villages have been surveyed in eleven Land Agent's districts. None of them is in the Central Division; the majority are in the Southern Division, half a dozen being in the G-ympie Laud Agent's dis trict. Only in two cases has all the land offered been taken up. In the first of the...

A MEETING was convened of tie business people of Isisford on the 2Gth instant, at Hoo per s Coffee Room, to consider the advisability of agitating for increased moil communica tion, also to take steps towards forming a Progress Association. All the business people of the town were represented. DB. FITZOERAIJ), who was unanimously chosen Chairman, said that ho was a stranger here, but, at the same time, he wished to identify himself with the interests of the town, and to forward his own. It had struck him and some others that there were a few circum stances which they might torn to more advantage than they did at the present time, and it was to consider these that the meeting had been called together. He thought that the matters of most importance which con cerned them were the mails and their new institution the Hospital. At the present time they were attached to the Barcoo Divisional Board, with its headquarters at Stonehenge....

TUESDAY, the 26th Jfaly, 'will be a day long remembered by the/members of the Manches ter Unity, 1.0.0 JF., whoparfcicipated in the opening of the y Loyal Thompson Lodge," No. ?3, at Longreach. The inauguration had been looked^forward to with a consider able amount of interest, inasmuch as the ex ertions of Bros.) J. Howard, P.G., W. C, Faulkner, P.N.G.l R. Ross, N.G., and C. H.

STORIES TOLD Round the Camp Fire. The Champion Liar of the Queensland Coast. (WRITTEN FOR THE Champion.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 2 August 1892

STORIES TOLD The Champion Liar of the Queensland Coast. (WBITTBN FOB THE Champion.) I bad often heard of " Old Deadman" the par exedknee of Cassowary Park, but bad never met him, and when the doctor advised me to spend a week or BO at the seaside, I chose the abovenamed pretty little watering place as the one likely to afford the ozone my system required, and also an opportunity of meeting a celebrity whose fame as a modern Ananias had extended far into the Western Queensland bush. I found " The Park" on arrival extremely dull; the summer had waned, and most of the visitors had left, so that in a few days a routine of boating, fish ing, and bathing began to pall-even the whisky lost its accustomed grip, and I re turned one afternoon to my hotel half deter mined to cut my stay short. Late that even ing whilst enjoying a quiet glass in the company of mine host and an old resident, a bronzed, bearded individual, apparently of middle age and simple demeanour, entered the room, and was a...

Original Poetry. A Twilight Teaching. DEDICATED TO "OPAL." [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 2 August 1892

A Twilight Teaching DEDICATED TO "OPAL." Australia never heard of ? why 'tis strange Ne'er to have known it's wealth of land and range : Our wond'rous land to which there is no key— Land which it's people love so tenderly. This is the land of ages, dark and grand, Lying a haven on Time's drifting sand. Here are the sparkling gems and yellow gold, In such profusion as could ne'er be told. This is the land of droughts for years and days That kills the cattle and lay waste the ways; Then when the earth is moaning in it's pain, And thirsting with dry throat for rain again, Rage violent storms that flood the country round Turn streams to seas that madly leap and bound. Here dwells the emu with its flying feet And useless wings—Here the weird dingoes greet Creation with their melancholy wail. Black swans upon the sunny waters sail. The kangaroo—the emblem of our land— One of the queerest of an eerie band— Hops thro' the gleaming grass with ghostly tread, Being the remnant of a age long de...
