Large Purchase of Sheep Skins. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 17 October 1902
Lar^e Purchase of Sheep Skin;). One effect of tbe drought is just now showing out to a marked degree, and demonstrates with much force the great mortality in tbe sheep flocks of tbe district. One skiu buyer alone, Mr. Louis Rich, of the Windsor Stores, consigned to Sydney no less a number than 11,000 skins one day last week. When it is taken into con sideration that this number was tbe result of but two weeks gathering, it speaks volumes for the alertness and business qualities of Mr. Rich's Manager (Mr. W. Willmott), but it also shows up tbe ravages of the drought fiend in a way that there is no mistaking. Tbe vast sums spent in fodder, for the purpose of keeping sbeep alive, must in many cases have exceeded tbe value of the animals, and the pastoralists and small sheep farmers are deserving of much sym pathy. But the end is not yet, aud perhaps tbe object lessons of the drought will be turned to good account in years to come.
Throwing with Dice in Hotels. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 17 October 1902
Throwing with Dice in Alotels. A point iu (he licensing law occurred in the Albury police court on Monday, when Wni. Downey, licensee of the George Hotel, was charged with per mitting an unlawful game to be played on bis premises. Tbe case for the prosecution was that, during the regu lar hours, the police entered the hotel and saw men shaking dice. The de fendant s attorney quoted section 4b of Cocksbott and Lamb's Liquor Act 1 in support of the contention that the mere fact of a publican having cards in his hotel, or dice, or that people ; were playing cards or throwing dice, was not an offence as far as tbe publi can was concerned. There must be some evidence that tbey were playing for money, or money's worth. Both dice and cards were . included as un lawful if played for money, but both were on the same footing, and if cards were (as they were) allowed when not played for money, dice were also. The Bench reserved its decision to con sult authorities.
Bumberry. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 17 October 1902
Bumberry. I [From odr own Correspondent.! I We have experienced all sorts and conditions of weather during the p&Bb week. A white frost was visible one morning, and the next few days the wind blew with hurricane force, clouds of dust enveloping the valleys. Satur day morning broke cold and dull and at 9 o'clock at night raiu commenced aud continued throughout the night, the .guage on Sunday morning regis tering 55 points. The sudden cold change has caused many of our resi dents to suffer from colds, &c. Shearing is progressing quietly, the clip being clean and of good staple, notwithstanding the trying times which have prevailed. A splendid draught mare, the pro perty of Mr. E. Townsend, died dur ing the week. The cause of death is supposed to be due to dirt in the in testines. The orchards around here at look splendid, the trees having a most healthy appearance, and the varigated blooms present a pleasing spectaole.

[?] MOLONG v. FORBES. j A bifle match, ten men iside, between members of - the Molong and Forbes Half-Squadrons, of Mounted ? Rifles, was shot off at Forbes on Saturday, the Molong men leaving by the mail train on Saturday morning. The Molong men came of victorious, win ing by tbe narrow majority of an. ' inner.' A glance at I lie sooreB will show that tbe Forbes rauge with its open veldt, delectable dust storms and interesting mirages, is hardly the place to notch up 'possibles,' as our local men found . out. The commanding officer, Lieutenant A. L. Robertson, Major W. E. O'Brien (D.S.O.) and the members of tbe Forbes Squadron treated Molong contingent in a true soldierlike and very hospitable manner.

The Singer. DEDICATED TO MADAME MELBA. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 17 October 1902
Tl»e Singer. Dedicated to Madame Melba. In every distant clime wherever you may roam. In every humble cottage, in every bumble home, The Singer is the pride, its virtues all extol, And still it gains renown as on the years do roll. In Boston many years ago an inventor toiled away, Trying to solve a problem that would give the Singer sway — Which would make his name an honoured one to be known far and wide, The world looks on approvingly, and smiles with grateful pride. Then improvements were perfected till now the Singer ranks The best of all inventions— it's safer than the banks— The woman's truest friend, her joy and household pride, There is nothing like the Singer is now known far and wide. ° The Company has its offices in every known clime; And all who use the Singer vote it best every time ; The Indian and the Arab, also those in Timbuctoo, Speak of the greatest wonder, all others they eschew. In Molong, there in Bank-street, the Singer it is sold, And competent assistants the...

The Outlook at Condobolin. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 17 October 1902
Tl»e Outlook at Condo bolln. iNQonsequenceofthecontinued drought stockowners throughout the Condobo lin district, after their sheep are shorn, are preparing to send them away to more favored localities where pasture may be obtained, or, failing this, where they will meet a market. In many cases sheep have been artificially fed for sucb a length of time tbat they have consumed fodder which has cost double their present value. There is no market there, shorn sheep at 3s 6d and woolly ones at 6s 6d failing to meet buyers. The first draft of 8500 out of 20,000, which is being sent from Eremeran, left by train tbis week with sheep from Eiacatoo and Mickabil to follow. Cattle from Borambil were also trucked this week, and the district promises to be left practically stockless. It is to be feared tbat a considerable number of the pbpulation will be forced out of their homes also. The fruitlessness of expecting crops is being generally recognised, and stock are being turned into the wheat f...

The P. & A. Societies' Union. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 17 October 1902
The P. & A. Societies' Union. I — O*'* Tbe quarterly meeting of the Pastoral and Agricultural Societies' Union of N.S.W. recently sitting in Sydney, is a gathering from which some good work might be expected. The attend ance of delegates from country branches has been good, while tbe business carried through has been capably handled, and is of considerable import ance. Among some of ? the principal items considered were the questions of of single judging and the establish ment of a chamber of agriculture. The secretary reported regarding the latter that of affiliated societies only three had voted against this innova tion, so it would appear that tbe great body can see some good likely to accrue from the establishment of a chamber of commerce, and for our part if it is not likely to do us good, as it is iuten.led, we fail to see that it can do any harm. On the matter of single judging opinion is more divided, but probably when the matter evolves from the threshing process it...
