INCREASE OF MARSUPIALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 23 August 1892

INCREASE OF MARSUPIALS. i SEVERAL meetings have been held recently to endeavor to press upon the Government the necessity for extending the Marsupial Destruction Act for a further period. There can be no doubt that the marsupials are increasing very much iii this district, and scalpers will not take the red kangaroo for skins only. During last week we noticed on a small patch of plain on Delta run, 29 kan faroos in one mob. On Saturday, Mr. P. IcLean, Under-secretary for Agriculture, had an opportunity of counting over 40 red and grey kangaroos in one mob, between tho race course reserve and thc reserve boundary. Since the Barcaldine Hunting Club gave up hunting, this part of the country is overridden with kangaroos. At the same time, we do not believe the scalping business has done much towards thinning out the pest. Scalpers sel dom follow tlie marsupials into thc scrub, where in a good season they breed as rapidly as rabbits, and only a very bad season will kill them off.

BEGIN IN TIME. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 23 August 1892

BEGIN Iff TIME. " Tis never too late to mend," is an old say ing, very applicable in cases of reformation or leaving off bad habits, but in cases of sick ness or disease no delay must occur, or it will soon be "too late to mend." At the onset of disease almost every case is curable ; if neglected almost every disease will progress beyond its curable stages. A simple headache ?s a reflex that some internal organ is dc rangeland this irregularity continues and in creases, although the not.'cablc signs-head ache, fcc, disappear. An early treatment of Clements Tonic is necessary, and must, on account of its scientific composition, prove an effective remedy. Mrs. Macller, Georgina street, Newton, Sydney, writes: " I can with confidence bear testimony to the wonderful efficacy of Clements Tonic. I have long been a victim to indigestion (caused by liver complaint) und au affection of the kidneys. I suffered terribly from headaches, pains in the back and sides with obstinate constipation.

BARCALDINE P.M. SUNDAY SCHOOL LIBRARY FUND. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 23 August 1892

BARCALDINE P.M. SUNDAY SCHOOL LÜ3 RARY FUND. Tim youngsters had a high old time in the Barcaldine Church on Thursday evening, when Mr. James gave an entertainment in aid of the school library. The building was well fdled, but what would have been a pleasant evening was marred by thc disgraceful conduct of a number of big boys, who thought it groat fun to practice their larrikinism, and make use of offensive expressions under cover of darkness. The Rev. Mr. Little described each view as thrown upon the screen. Thc entertainment, which lasted an hour and a-half, comprised 30 old Testament views, and numerous comic pictures and effect scenes, many of them caus ing roars of laughter.

CORRESPONDENCE. WE do not endorse the opinions expressed by our correspondents. The columns of this paper are open to our iiibieribers for the ventilation of grievances the discussion of matters affecting the community, and for the publication of letters possessing public interest. Personalities strictly excluded. BUSHMEN'S HOME-AN APPEAL. TO TEE EDIT0B. Sm,-This is a subject that has received very little attention at the hands of the general tlic ; but I maintain, Sir, that to strike at root of present social evils is to endeavor by some scheme to elevate the social and moral condition of fte workers. A more liberal legislation may do a little good, but Acts of Parliament never yet made people moral, and, no matter what form of Govern ment we may have, the same evil causes will be at work, for figs do not grow on thorns, and the same evil results would ensue, so that if -we wish to reconstruct society on a more equitable basis, wo must commence tho re forms with ourselves.

STORIES TOLD ON THE Shut In. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 23 August 1892

STORIES TOLD ON THE Shut In. WON'T you give me an entry of two for the overnight races tomorrow?" inquired the nrbane clerk of the course, addressing a tall, aristocratic looking man, who was somewhat ruefully watching the futile attempts of the auctioneer upon the entered selling-price of a leggy, unfurnished specimen of the thorough, bred that had just succeeded in passing the post first fur a minor event at the Laceton Autumn Meeting. The Honorable Augustus Marler started slightly at the question. His thoughts had been running in quite a different groove. " Well, I don't know, Martin," Ue replied, " my horses are sn plaguey bad, you see. And even when I find one good enough to run second there's no surplus to cut up," he adds, as the auctioneer, finding his eloquence of no avail, tells The Lumberer's attendant to " take him away," and the little knot of spectators who had assembled to witness the sale disperse. " You might enter Disappointment for the Selling Handicap," persisted...

BARCALDINE BREWERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 23 August 1892

BARCALDINE BREWERY. THE Company was rather unfortunate last week, for in tilling one of the ten thousand gallon tanks, embedded underground, tile weight of the water burst through the iron, and bent it up like brown paper. The damage was done, it is said, by one tank being filled before the other, while both should have been gradually supplied with water at the same time. Mr. Hargan, the manager, was not responsible for wis damage, but he has the unpleasant job of effecting repairs. A large stjaff of men were put on at once to bail out the tanks and remove the earthworks, and on Saturday, the tank most damaged was lifted out of the reservoir for repairs.
