MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 20 January 1899
MISCELLANEOUS. The income of the Emperor of Rus- sia for one day is £5,000, that of the Sultan of Turkey £3 600, while the President of the United States only gets about £26 day. Harry Hill, a younger brother of Clem. Hill, in a cricket match between the Adelaide steamship companies, made 123 (retired) and took three wick- ets. John Hill sen. was the first bats- man to make a century on the Adel- aide oval Lyne says it is un-English to make the Broken Hill mining companies pay retrospective income tax—evaded last year by a mere technicality. Lyne seems to be trying how many kinds of ass he can successfully personate. The Noble Eight who voted against shop employees being compelled to ceasc work at 6 p.m, were Hassall, Millard, Moore, Pyers, Rigg, Spruson, Waddell. and Wood. Most of them profess to be Democrats ! In 1892, Tyson took up £250,000 of Queensland Treasury Bills, This was not patriotism; it was good investment. He offered to advance the Queensland Government half-a-million...

OUR TELEGRAMS. (FROM OUR SYDNEY CORRESPONDENT.) Sydney, Thursday. BUTTER—Creamery 9d, factory 8½d. dairy 7d to 8d, cheese 4d to 8½d, eggs 8½d to 9½d, fowls 1s 9d to 3s 6d ducks 2s to 3s. So far nothing definite has been made known with regard to the development of police evidence respecting the Gatton tragedy, a vigorous search is being made for the pistol or rifle with which Michael Murphy was shot. A man's waiscoat has been found near where the body of the boy, Hill, was discovered in the Oxley district. &nbsp; South Australia defeated Queensland by one innings and 284 runs. In consequence of the drought the Namoi and Gwy- der Rivers have ceased run- ning. The districts once watered by them are in a terrible state. John Wilcox, aged 76, an inmate of the Launceston Be- nevolent Asylum, has received a legacy of L7400 from a rela- tive in England. Owing to recent bereave- ments, Mr. Salomons has been compelled to decline all enter- tainments of a public nature which have been...
The Chronicle. For the cause that lacks assistance, For the wrongs that need resistance, For the future in the distance, And the good that we can do. COBARGO, FRIDAY, JANUARY 20,1899. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 20 January 1899
The Chronicle. For the cause that lacks assistance, For the wrongs that need resistance, For the future in the distance, And the good that we can do. COBARGO, FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 1899. &nbsp; THE blood-curdling Melbourne sensa- tion, known as the Boot Box Tragedy, is only overshadowed by the Gatton outrage and massacre—a diabolical barbarity which has made the whole fabric of society fairly reel to its very base. The Melbourne horror is some what on a par with a number of cases so familiar to Australia, and which have tended to degrade her fair name. The most notorious case of this class was that in which the unfortunate Jessie Nicholls was the cruel victim, and for which the quack and abor- tionist Sheridan was hanged about three years ago. That there are very many cases of the kind that do not end fatally, but are otherwise equally lamentable and criminal, no one can doubt; and this contention is borne out by the large number of advertise- ments in the metropolitan and man...
MADAME RADALYSKI. Of the Boot Trunk Tragedy. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 20 January 1899
MADAME RADALYSKI. Of the Boot Trunk Tragedy. Numerous stories have been circu- culated in connection with the past career of the woman now in the Mel- bourne Gaol under the name of Madame Radalyski, and who is under arrest charged with the alleged murder of Mabel Ambrose, the victim of the Boot Trunk Tragedy, by administering drugs or medicines. Amongst those who implicitly believed the story of her life were a large number of promi- nent ladies and gentlemen well known in society, including three doctors practising in Collins-street, with whom this extraordinary young woman has come in contact during her efforts latterly to obtain employment. To anyone whom she has met whilst under the style of Madame Radalyski she has appeared to be well-educated well-informed, and of an amiable and entertaining disposition. Her acquain- tances never for a moment doubted the truth of her romantic story. &nbsp; Further inquiries into ' Madame Olga Radalyski's' past history amongst those who...

MOUNT DROMEDARY-PAST AND PRESENT. THE MINING INDUSTRY. PART III. (FOR THE CHRONICLE.) [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 20 January 1899
MOUNT DROMEDARY-PAST AND PRESENT. THE MINING INDUSTRY. PART III. (FOR THE Chronicle.) [By Yarraman.] FOR a new-chum at mining, it is a very novel experience to go over a mine of the size of the Company's. The man &nbsp; who has volunteered to guide you, &nbsp; lights two candles at the mouth of, say No. 4 drive, and taking one, you follow him into the darkness. As you ad- vance along the tramline, you roll and sway from side to side like a drunken man—it is almost impossible to walk straight. The change into the darkness is in some measure responsible for this. Every minute or so flop you go into &nbsp; mud and water over your boot tops. &nbsp; But this is nothing, you came prepared for all this. As you go again, your &nbsp; candle shedding faint light on the &nbsp; rocky walls, splintered here and there &nbsp; by the force of the dynamite charges— your breath is hanging about you in dull vapour, and your voice, when you muster...
THEY SAY: [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 20 January 1899
THEY SAY: THAT poultry raising is growing quite a profitable industry in Cobargo; and That some of our "nippers" do not raise chickens in the good old way, but wait until they (the chicks) are ready for the table and then gently lift them from the roost; and That during one nocturnal chicken hunting expedition recently only one bird was captured. That the " langwidge" chargcd against an habitue of the local police court made the witness-box fairly rock; and That the public always have a com- paratively soft corner in its heart for the "garden variety " of drunk, but &nbsp; they applaud any effort to put down disgusting language. That the Cobargo man who signed a contract for the purchase, of a diction- ary "just to get rid of the man " now feels very sorry ; and That when the next book fiend happens along, this individual intends trying other means to get rid of him. That a Cobargo sport has such con- fidence in the marvellous racing powers of his horse, that he offered to m...
SMALL DEBTS COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 20 January 1899
SMALL DEBTS COURT. Before Messrs. F. B. Hales, P.M., H. Street, A. Tarlinton,. and D. Tar- linton, Js.P. M. Smillie v. Joshua Vickery. Dis- obeying an order of the Court. Post- poned till the 17th February. F. Henwood v. Joshua Vickery. Disobeying an order of the Court. Postponed till the 17th February. Mr. Blomfield appeared for plaintiff in each case. The precocity of the young Aus- tralienne! At an inquest on the body of an infant of three weeks, held at Mandurama recently, it transpired that the mother was only 14 years and 10 months old. &nbsp; &nbsp; Tyson objected to his manager, making butter, holding that it was a robbery of the calves. Nice man to board with.
"NOSEY BOB." Ten Minutes with the Hangman. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 20 January 1899
"NOSEY BOB." Ten Minutes with the Hangman. The exigencies of the law and the ne- cessity to vindicate it, gave Dubbo re- cently the rare but not enviable dis- tinction of a visit from the most pic- turesque figure in connection with our criminal jurisprudence. The chief ex- ecutioner, called variously the hang- man and 'the finisher,' has been a- mongst us, done his work, and disap- peared as noiselessly as he came. The chief executioner of New South Wales is known as 'Nosey Bob' among those classes who fear and hate him, from probably the instinctive feeling that some day or another they will be as- sisted by him in their last toilet, prior to attending that dance upon air which the State provides for the worst of its mauvas sujets. His first professional visit to Dubbo was 20 odd years ago, when he turned off Newman, who was hanged for that terrible outrage and murder at Coonabarabran. He was then a well set-up muscular man, with a good head of hair, and except that his face was n...

CORRESPONDENCE. (To the Editor Tilba Times) (Per favor Cobargo 'Chronicle.') &nbsp; SIR,—We beg to draw attention to a statement in your issue of the 11th instant to the effect that an enthu- siastic canvasser had endeavored to induce the wives of two absent hus- bands to place their (the husbands') names on a certain petition. This statement is absolutely untrue, and we, the undersigned, challenge you to prove your statement, either at the Licensing Court, Moruya, on the 24th instant, or any convenient place &nbsp; you choose.—We are, &c., &nbsp; &nbsp; H. T. BATE. N. BOXSELL.
THE Idle Thoughts OF An Idle Fellow. ON BEING SHY, [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 20 January 1899
THE Idle Thoughts OF &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; An Idle Fellow. ON BEING SHY. ALL great literary men are shy. I am myself, though I am told it is hardly noticeable. I am glad it is not. It used to be extremely prominent at one time, and was the cause of much misery to my- self, and discomfort to every one about me—my lady friends, especially, com plained most bitterly about it. A shy man's lot is not a happy one. The men dislike him, the women des- pise, and he dislikes and despises him- self. Use brings him no relief, and there is no cure for him except time ; though I once came across a delicious receipt for overcoming the misfortune. It appeared among the "answers to correspondents" in a small, weekly journal, and ran as follows—I have never forgotten it;—"Adopt an easy &nbsp; and pleasing manner, especially to- wards ladies." Poor wretch! I can imagine the &nbsp; grin with which he must have read that advice." Adopt an easy and &nbsp; &a...
NOTES and SKETCHES from the TILBAS. (Written for the Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 20 January 1899
NOTES and SKETCHES from the TILBAS. BY TYRO. (Written for the Chronicle.) DID you ever hear the proverb of the new broom; how that broom, for a short time, swept well and cleanly ? Did you ever hear the proverb 'actions &nbsp; apeak, not words') Did yon read the leader in the first issue of the "Tilba Times " and have you read that of the 11th inst? When this paper, the "Times," was launched among us, we hailed its advent as the birth of a new star, and hoped that its efforts might be instrumental in drawing the rival centres closer to each other, and pour- &nbsp; ing oil upon the troubled waters. And we were encouraged in this belief by the first editorial, which stated that the paper would be a strictly impartial representative of either, and would keep clear of all party strifes—and much more to the same effect. Of course it has done so ? you ask. Well, this is not for me to say, but there are people in this district who think that a noble calling has been prostit...
CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 20 January 1899
masses of nut brown hair falling over &nbsp; her shoulders and far below her waist. Her face was very pale still, but her &nbsp; large dark eyes had a tender, dewy &nbsp; softness in their depths, which added &nbsp; &nbsp; to their beauty, and he, looking upon her with something of that reverence &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; with which knights of old were wont &nbsp; to regard the lady of their loves, thought he had never before seen a woman with such sweet curves of cheek and chin, or with such a pure and noble brow. 'If you will let me tell you how I &nbsp; came here, it is all I ask,' he answered humbly. Believe me, I had no &nbsp; thought of doing harm. Even though &nbsp; I had to die in a ditch like a dog of starvation, I would scorn to take so much as a crust of bread that is not mine. I came here in the belief that I should find a friend. John Stanley used to be the owner of Westbury, and ...
