CHAS. A. BRIGSTOCKE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 11 November 1899
CHAS. A. BRIGSTOCKE. There were many sad hearts in Cobar on Tuesday when the news was received in town that Charles A. Brigstocke had died that morning. He had been managing Tiltargara station, and was a very old resident of this district. Deceased was about 45 years of age, and leaves a widow, together with a son and daugter. Influenza was the cause of death. The station is situated 74 miles west of Cobar, and deceased's attack, it is supposed, was too sudden to summon medical assist- ance. Mr Brigstocke was one of the early squatters to cast his lot in this district, when western flats were more fertile and the rainfall more abundant. Since then the scene has changed - barren wastes since predominated and the showers have been chiefly showers of dust. Like many others, deceased lost much money in wool-growing. Notwithstanding reverses, he always met the world with a cheerful face. His many friends will learn of his death with regret.
Topics of the Week. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 11 November 1899
Topics of the Week. A few weeks ago there was a mild war scare that the Transvaal trouble would lead to complications between the Powers which would plunge Great Britain in a greater and heavier war- fare than she is at present engaged in. It is a pleasure to note, however, that a re-assuring flood of light has, during the last few days, gleamed through a rift in the cloud that so darkly shrouded the prospect ahead. The furtive machinations of France have been openly unmasked by the Powers she sought to beguile. An endeavour was made to inveigle Germany into the anti-British scheme, but the reply given through that country's semi- official organ, the Berlin Post, publicly ridicules the proposal of France that the settlement of the Transvaal trouble should be relegated to a tri- bunal of the Powers. Germany has her own interests in Africa, and these she is attending to with satisfaction to herself and under amicable arrange- ments with England. The response &nbsp; of the Unit...

The Kelly Gang. ARNOLD DENHAM CO. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 11 November 1899
The Kelly Gang. ARNOLD DENHAM CO. &nbsp; On Saturday last the Arnold Den- ham Dramatic Co., opened in the Masonic Hall to one of the largest audiences that has ever been assembled in that building. The title of their production for that evening — 'The &nbsp; Kelly Gang' is one which has always drawn well, and Cobar proved no exception. The drama was staged very well, and the scenic effects were of an order highly creditable to a travelling company. The hero of the piece, 'Ned Kelly,' was ably repre- &nbsp; sented by Mr Charles Field. He is physically a good stamp of a man, and took his part perfectly- Mr Chas Carrington portrayed the reckless 'Dan Kelly' with splendid effect. &nbsp; &nbsp; Mr R. Talbott represented 'Steve &nbsp; Hart,' the big boy bushranger whose connection with the gang from first to last was actuated by a strong love for 'Kate Kelly,' the loyal and daring sister of the outlawed brothers. By the way, Miss le Croisett...

OBITUARY. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 11 November 1899
OBITUARY. Since our last issue the death rate has been very largely augmented. In our last, five deaths were reported, but this time it is our painful duty to chronicle no less than seven deaths. This brings to recollection the mor- tality of the heat wave, although the climatic conditions of the 1896 apo- pleptic visitation are, fortunately, not with us today. It seems that the &nbsp; varied weather of the past month - one day hot and the next cold — has had a disastrous effect on sufferers from chronic complaints. A brief notice of the deaths is given below. We sym- pathise deeply with the many bereaved ones.
