CHAPTER VIII. SHAKES LOOKING UP. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 16 August 1892

CHAPTER VIII. SHAKES LOOKING UP. There were others who echoed her lady ship's words afterward, though they echoed them privately and with much more caution than my lady felt nececsary. It is certain that Miss Octavia Bassett did not improve as time progressed, and she bod enlarged op portunities for studying the noble example set before bcr by Slowbridge. On his arrival in New York, Martin Bas sett telegraphed to bis daughter and sister, per Atlantic cable, informing them that he might be detained a couple of months, and bidding them to be of good cheer. The arri val of the message, in its official envelope, so alarmed Miss Belinda that she was supported by Mary Anne while it was read to her by Octavia, who received it without any sur prise whatever. For some time after its completion, Slowbridgc bad privately disbe lieved in the Atlantic cab!e, and until this occasion, had certainly disbelieved in the ex istence of people who received messages through it. In fact, on first finding ...

A FAIR BARBARIAN. CHAPTER VI.—CONTINUED. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 16 August 1892

A FAIR BARBARIAN. By Frances Hodgson Burnett, Author of " That Lass o' Lowrio's," " Little Lord Fauntleroy," ctc. CHATTER VI.-CONTINUED. w HAT a charming wife Lucia wouli , make for a man to whom gentle ness and a yielding disposition weTe necessary ! We do not find such girls in society nowadays, my dear Lady Theobald. It is very difficult of late to find a girl who is not spoken of as 'fast,'and who is not dis posed to take tbe reins in her own hands. Our young men aro flattered and courted until tbey become a littln dictatorial, and our girls are spoiled at home. And the re sult is a great deal of domestic unhappiness afterward-and even a great deal of scandal, which is dreadful to contemplate. I cannot help feeling the greatest anxiety in secret coucerning Francis. Young men so seldom consider these matters until it is too late." " GirJs are not trained as they were in my young days, or even in yours," said Lady Theobald. " They are allowed too much liberty, Lucia has been broug...

#iwiiral locte CHARITY. Dksigkeks with brush and pencil They were English maidens still Upon whose fragile porcelain Rose groups or floxv'rs at tlieir will. One, quite alone, at the table, Apart from the girlish throne, Worked steadily on,-and working, Ne'er joined in the low-breath'd song: Which ceased as I came among them. Hut it lingered in my brain .' Known to each life are its sorrows, And to every heart its pain." I am old. and "felt the shadow Of this sorrowful refraiu; Hut why should the lonely worker Appear so distress'd, so pain'd She-so youug, so fair, so winsome ! Was forming beautiful flow'i-s, Was marking upon the platter Sweet tribute of summer's hours. Bonding o'er one of the workers, I lowered my voice to ask " Tell me the name of the maiden Who sits alone at her task ?" Her tones were not low nor gentle, She proudly raised her fair bead " That question cannot be answered; She has no name, it is said.'° 1 turned from this name-proud maiden, Having lillies in my hand...

Longreach Races. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 16 August 1892

Longreacli Races. THE Longreach Handicaps having appeared, tlie racing carnival at Barcaldine is all but forgotten, and all interest of racing men cen tred in what is becoming known as the Chicago of the West, where racing over a period of at least three days comes off at the end of the month. For two booths the sum of about £80 was realised, and the gates real ised £50 odd: it Is to be hoped the attend ance at the meeting and consumption of liquids will compensate the purchasers for their pluck. But still one is inclined to doubt it, for even the most fervent believer in the go-aheadism of Longreach fancies the prices realised for the rights and privileges were considerably over their actual value; and I, for one, am certainly of that opinion also. At present Messrs. Brown, Day and J. D. Hughes are the only registered bookmakers at Longreach, and they have not as yet, I be lieve, been harassed with too much business; their number will be augmented this week by the arrival of Jack A...

UNSOUND MIND AT LONGREACH. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 16 August 1892

UNSOUND MIND AT LONGREACH. IN OUT Longreach Police Court report will be noticed the name of William John Dee who was brought up on suspicion of being of unsound mind and remanded to the Reception House at Rockhampton for thirty days. Ftym what we can gather the unfortunate man's conduct for some time past has been rather eccentric, but on Saturday afternoon his mania took a more decided form. Shortly after having his tea at Mrs. Gill'6 private boarding house, he rualied to his room, pro cured two revolvers, and commenced firing at random from the passage, one bullet going very close to a gentleman who was passing, besides giving the inmates a considerable start. Luckily, however, a fellow boarder rushed upon hiin and dispossessed him of the weapons and locked them in his box. Dee then pro ceeded to Mr. Savage's store, where he has been employed for some time past, and the police on receiving information at once pro ceeded there and arrested him and sarely lodged him in the lock-up. ...
