KISSED BY THE QUEEN " To be Knight of the Thistle is a big honour, of course, remarked an old quartermaster sergeant, amidst a dis cussion among some military men at Chatham, eays Pearson's WceMy; " but I can claim a distinction lots in front of that, or of kisBiDg hands with the Qaeen, as they say of the : custom observed by Cabinet Ministers when taking over the seals of office." "You're chucking it, mon," observed a slaVarfe sergeant frae the far North, " Well," the veteran non.com. -went on to explain, "the good fortune ■which befell me was to "be kissed by the QueeD," an intimation which caused the party to gather round yet closer. " You're having us, Jock " observed a 1 credulous corpora], "and if yoa want the hatchet say so, for the present holder is fair outclassed."

Commercial Travellers and Storekeepers' Annual Reunion. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 13 April 1900
Commercial Travellers and Store keepers' Annual Reunion. The annual cricket match between the " Bagmen " travelling the South Coast roads and the storekeepers of the Bega District was to have come off in Bcga on Wednesday, 4th inst., but unfortu nately the inclemency of the weather decreed otherwise. The unpropitious «eather nob only deprived the players of a pleaRant game of cricket in which great interest was centred, but also robbed the Victoria Homes of a sub stantial addition to its funds, and this i aper of much interesting copy. How ever, nothing loth, the disappointed playi-rs were determined lo enjoy them selves, and they accordingly hied them selves to the School of Arts, whers a pleasant and convivial afternoon was spent per medium of progressive euchre, etc. THE BANQUET. In the evening the storekeepers were entertained at a banquet at the Cen tral Hotel by the Commercial*.

THE BUTTER INDUSTRY IN VICTORIA. A Serious Situation, [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 13 April 1900
THE BUTTER INDUSTRY IN VICTORIA. A Serious Situation, At its inception the butter export trade of the colony stood high upon an honestly earned uanie for good quality, but the grave fact has to be faced that J there has set in a steady drift back wards. That no country can afford to | rest upon a former good name isexem plified in the case of America. In | a return issued by the Secretary for Agriculture, Washington, it is shown that the American export trade in butter has fallen oil from 23,492,COOlb in 1889 to SG9,OOOlb in 1898. The cause for so dieast.roue a decadence is plainly stated in the report, which says: "The quality of our dairy pro duce is now the lowest of any imported by Great Britain, and its value per )b, which in 1889 stood so high, is now the lowest of all,. We have wrecked our good position iij the finest market in the world, £ position originally won by the good quality of our products." The Age correspondent in London has not failed to faithfully warn us from t...
" Evil to him who evil thinks." THEY SAY: [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 13 April 1900
" Evil io him who evil think*." THEY SAY:; WnosBitLvrcKv 1 That Leyd s sympathetic message to the Prince of Wales after the attempt ted assasination was a piece of damned impudence. That British kindness to thi-ir cap tured prisoners is neither understood nor appreciated by the Boer barbarian. Thiiu Works O Sullivau lias made so many protnites for works throughout the colony that he now adds the quali fying phrase—"when funds tire avail able ; and That as his stock of promises is pro bably running out, the O'Sullivan will soon abandon his new departure in visiting ©very remote corner of the colony to personally find out the people's wants. That tlie eight weeks is about up during which tenders for the Berma gui wharf improvements were to be called. That the British troops fall into an ambush quite as accommodatingly now as they did at the commencement of the war. - That as Cecil Rhodes is nbv in London there appears small chance of Kruger satisfying his determination to exhibit Ceci...
Tragic Scene in a Circus. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 13 April 1900
Tragic Scene in a Circus The patrons of the sacred concprb at Crye ti) Paluce recently got exceptional value for money. They bad no music, it is true, but they had plenty of ex citement in tlie shape of an elephant hunt. It &lt;waa not run on orthodox lines by any means, for the elephants did the mist of the bunting, so far, at any rote, as the-conc«rt audience were conc.-rned, and a shocking death over took one of the men who tried to play tho hunter's part. The stories as to th -! origin of the affair differ materially but the sequence of events appears to have been as follows :—Two of the elephants attached to Lord George Sanger's circus had been b having badly all day, and were chastised by the keepers for their misconduct. The puui hment appears to have driven one devil out and seven into the huge I beasts, for just before 4 p.m. they ! wound up a di "play of vicious temper i by breaking loosed Defying all at- I tempts to check them, the pair broke j thro igh the circus...

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, APRIL 13, 1900. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 13 April 1900
ttranick For the cause thai lacks assistance, For the wongs that need resistance, For the future in the distance, And the good that ire ca" do. Cobabgo, Fkiday, April 13, 1900. Is this issue we reprint an article on the butter trado, which, although it refer, specially to the industry in the colouv of Victoria, might be read with profit by the dairyfarmers of New South Wales, with a view of avoiding the same mistakes. Victoria led the van in the export trade, and at one time, the quality ot her product stood high in the home market, and only second to the Danish; and yet to-day, to quote from the article under notice, " the quality of the Victorian dairy produce is now the lowest of any imported by Great Britain, and its value per lb, which in 1869 stood so high, is now the lowest of all. The difference in price between Australian and Danish butter for the past year bas been from 14s to 16s per cwt, as compared with from 6s to 8s per cwt for the three years preceding This is a glari...

On the whole, it seems to us that there is an ungenerous readiness to attach blame to some Generals while overlooking the blunders of ethers who, having pre viously been created popular idols, are uow deemed to be incapable of error.

A MISERLY MILLIONAIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 20 April 1900
A MISERLY MILLIONAIRE. The interesting foreigner (says a writer in a London paper) enriched out death duties £90,000 was of course the eccentric 4 Chicago' Smith. He resided for years at the Eeform Club, paying a fixed sum of 15s per diem for board and lodging, "and sel dom going out. When he found, owing to age, increasing difficulty in walking upstairs, he had a lift con structed at his own expense, which he presented to the club. Also he gave hie favorite waiberB £10 apiece every Christmas. Of the late years Mr. Smith never moved from his own room, but got through the bulk of his business in bed. He hoped to die the richest man in the world, and many think he did so. His real estate in America included half Chicago, You nay remember I mentioned him when he died. ' Chicago' Smith died worth ten millions. When a yoong man, I suppose that he made money in busi ness. His enormous fortune, however, was derived from the rise in the value of town property in Chicago, and from accumulati...
