"Die before the Jubilee!" cried Sir^George Grey on recovering from one attack, a couple of years ago, " Certaiuly not! I'm living for it, and mean to see it through." And so he did, though a reckless visit to the Hotel Cecil nearly ended him. Remonstrated with on his imprudence by Lord Stamford,Sir George chuckled in quite his old form.

Proposed Railway from Broken Hill to Menindie. [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder and North Western Mail — 12 November 1898
?roposed Mlway &om Isolsea l&U to Meaia&ie, At a largely attended meeting held at. Broken Hill! on Monday a resolution was carried asking the N.S.W. Government to connect Broken Hill with Menindie by rail. Meniudie is a fertile spot on the liarlingj Jtiyer^ and the distance from Broken Hill is 6i miles over level country, so that the construction of the proposed line would nob involve a very heavy 'jex-j enditure. The;: advocates; of > the line urge its construction chiefly ou the grounds that it would lay; the Harrier on to an inpxlianstab'e snpplv of cheap firewood and plenty ot ttvsh fruit arid vegetables. Some of the speakers referred to the line as being the first link from Brokfcii Hill in the chain of connection with Sydney, the recent attempt of the &.A. ; Govern ment to increase the freights oil ore bjing cited as a t eason why the liarrierites should keep this end in view. But this was by no means a jdolriinant note at the meeting. The li...

The Port Pirie Recorder. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 1898. Give a Dog a Bad Name, &c. [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder and North Western Mail — 12 November 1898
mt $out ^ivic & J&ctovbciv Saturday, Novemheii 12, 1898. Gi^ a 3Je£ a Bad 2?am0,&e. When typhoid fever breaks out in any town within a hundred or go miles of Port Pirie, it is becoming the fashion to at once institute vigor ous inquiries to ascertain ■ if any resident of the place has visited this port, or been in. communication with it, or if any Pirieah has passed through, or' if the wind has been blowing from our direction. It gener ally happens that the inquirers triumph in proving that one or more of these things have happened, , and Pirie is forthwith debited with all the trouble.: The'latest amusing instance of this desire ou the part of our neighbours to attribute the outbreak of fever to anything rather than their own smellfnl, filthy suiroundings, comes from Caltowie. Several cases of fever have occurred there, and on its being stated that the sufferers had visited the Schools' Exhibition which was held here in October last, this is held to be convi...
Ridding Hens of Broodiness. [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder and North Western Mail — 12 November 1898
BiSdiag Seas e£ Ssoofiiaess. For profit in. egg production, we must see to it . that every hen is strictly kept to business, allowing uone bat those wanted for the vvork to sit an unnecessary moment in a broody mood, sis ewry hour means loss of flesh and fewer eggs. Catch in the evening, and confine in some roomy enclosure; give:a little more than half the usual ration, plenty of wateiv grit, and green-.stuff, and iri a few days they will be broken of the ; incubating desire, and after a little I begin to jay agaiii ; whereas if half ; starved to death, as wap the custom in our foremothei-'s day, it will itake them fully a month to recuperate. And, as each hen is' supposed to lay,' so each in turn wid become broody,, and as her - turn for isolation comes we can then know to just what ex tent lice (the large grey loose) may have taken hold. Have ready a can of kerosine, and, when catching, examine carefully; cut off all soiled feathers, and wet places = sparingly with the oil, for, i...
The Veteran's Thirst. [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder and North Western Mail — 12 November 1898
The Veteran's ^bisst. The late Sir Henry Parkes had an expensive thirst His wine bill was always a heavy item of domestic ex penditure. He very rarely entered a hotel, and never was seen in a bar. An enthusiastic new member, walk ing by the Oxford Hotel one (lay,, after great persuasion, prevailed up In Sir Henry to enter and -l have a drink." The waiter appeared. " What will you try, Sir Henry ?" asked the new member. " What do you take ?" asked Sir Henry, by way of reply. " Oh, mine's always whisky." " And mine's always wine—the best cham pagne," put in Parkes. "Whisky and soda foe me,.and a small .bottle of champagne for Sir Henry," was the order, with a sigh. " A large bottle, if you please, waiter," corrected Sir Henry, and the new fand economical} member almost fainted when he knew that a guinea was gone. He was never again guilty of the indiscretion of asking Sit Henry to have a drink. • A sailor from Greenock and an Irish mail from Belfast* recently had a quarrel. They agree...
Narridy. November 12. [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder and North Western Mail — 16 November 1898
November 12. Things are nob improving with ago. The placo looks old and has the appear ! auce of oncc being inhabited. Business places aro bi:ing deserted and closed up, while thnsa who lost their time in them are j gone elsewhere to seek their fortunes. [ Reaping is the work now on hand, and I I have heard of a few very fair crops, but I the wind and bad weather will have a disastrous effect on what is not yet reaped. There is a well-built flourmi'l here with all latest roller machine)y in full working order, but it p>ys better to leave it rust and rot than work it, though thousands of bag3 of wheat are carted past the mill door every year. Well, I suppose we pay a little more per bag or ton for our flour, and it is all the same thing in the end whether this mill works or not. I thought a mill would be the first thing the Farmers' Union would go in for, as they are now compelled I o give the flour ring what they like to charge for it. The Agricultural Bureau of this place has ha...

CITY CHATTER. PUBLIC HOLIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder and North Western Mail — 16 November 1898
ClTY^HSTTER. By Twitter. v--;i PUBLIC HOLIDA Y, The chief event of ths public holiday was the intercolonial cricket match, in which . Victoria, like the good queen, maintained a marvellous innings. By the way, the holiday was to celebrate the birthday of the Prince of Wales. One had almost forgotten the fact; "Tummy," as he is affectionately called,.i out of regard to his alderuaanic pro portion, is 57, and if he really desired to be king would be now described as the Prince of Wails. But he does not. ' It is even said he has a bi« bet on with the Marchioness of Queensberry that he will never ascend the throne ; and if he wins, the gooseberry narrator might add, the | bet will be used to pay his testamentary debts. Of late years the public has heard nothing of the Prince's gaiety or afflict ions, only of his grace, tactfulneas, and afitictioas. Well, I expect acme of m will not be as frisky as we have been when we approach sutty. Princes are men of like passions to ourselves, if any...

Tho Institute Question. TO THE Korrou. I Sir—Having read Mr. Mallyon's letter of the 5tli iust., and re-read the Amended Institutes Act, I have come to the con clusion that his interpiet itioa of the Act is right, and consequentlv I withdraw what I wrote on that subject on tho 2>th ult. This, however, does not afftci the position of the Port Pirie Institute, as it has never lieen sold or transferred to the Corporation under the provisions of the Amende I Act. " The position'is deter mined by the Act of ls8o-l, and the rules of the Institute passed, approved, and gazetted in accordance with the provisions of that Act. The rules require that the Institute shall be managed m a way in which it is not being managed at present, as the trustees are receiving rents, etc. The Act states that the trustees accepting the office " shall continue to be trustees for such period and with such powers and duties as may be prescribed by any rules or regutatioes which for the time being may regulate...

CENTRALS CRYSTAL BROOK EARLY CLOSERS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder and North Western Mail — 16 November 1898
CENTRALS CRYST Air BROOK EARLY CLOSERS. Oh Monday a moderate attendance witnessed the above match, on the Recreation Gronnd. The visitors had first use of the wickets, but Trennery was on the spot with the - ball, and they cDuld do little with his deliveries, as his average of 7 for 22 will show. Pavy made 11 carefully and well, but | Sinclair lost no time in hitting up 13. All were out for 56—a score the home team reckoned was easy to negotiate, but so well did Sinclair ! trundle that when an adjournment was made for lnnch 6 ■ wickets, were down for 22. However, on G ill and Illraan becoming associated a fair I stand was made. Illman was caught for 13, but Gill was not got rid of | before contributing a stylish. innings of 37. Deducting a couple of chances his score does him credit. Domn tliorne remained not out with 30 opposite his name, and the total stood at 111. In their second attempt the Brooks fared a trifle; better, 70 runs being registered when the last wicket fell. A. Pav...
