Trundle District. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 17 June 1898

Trundle District. (By "Lana" in the "Sydney Mail.")   When the train arrived at Parkes I was met by Messrs Little and Todd, both selectors in the district I was about to visit. Mr. Todd accompanied me in the train as far as Bogan Gate and handed me over to Mr. S. L. West. That gentlemen is well known to many of the sporting public. The first thing my attention was drawn to was the inadequate arrangements for dealing with the wheat sent in for transit. At present they are far below requirements, and should this season prove only the same as the last one, there will be a decided block, to the loss of the farmer. About a mile from the platform we halted at Mr. West's hotel, a first-class hostelry, where I had a dinner equal to the be.3t any where- I inspected a lot of well-built horseboxes, wherein I saw some first class stock, amongst them a colt by Padlock out of Axiom ; another well grown colt, Definition, by Lochiel, and the racehorses Mutineer and Hosebery. Padlock ev...

(prom our exchanges.) clu • ■ ■ tit r-rr:3 COWRA. The weather is fine again. There is a green tinge on the face of the country in consequence of a slight growth of grass appearing aa the result of the recent rains, ' In political circles matters are quiet and all parties appear to be waiting for further development beiore making any move in regard to organising for the forthcoming general election. On Federal polling day it was evident from the first that there was i a large majority of town electors in favor of the Convention Bill, but the farmers in the outlying district were almost to a man opposed to the measure. A rumor is current in town that Mr. B. D. Millen, M.P. for Bourke, is making overtures to the local Freer traders, with a view to contesting this electorate at the forthcoming general election. A wire was received on Friday from the Board of Health, stating that Dr. Tidswell will visit Cowra to inspect the proposed site for the water supply. On Wednesday last, Mr. John ...

The Storyteller. The Gipsy's Daughter. CHAPTER XVI. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 24 June 1898

CHAPTER XVI. « DISENCHANTMENT ! DISILLUSION !" Later in the day, Sir Victor sent for Hortense and gave her her dismissal. He realised that it was not safe to ^ave ^er near Eose, after that look of deadly hate in her eyes. To his astonishment, the maid said that 'she did not care to leave; she could pardon madame's little eccentricities!' 'BatI heard you speak words to Lady St. Maurice that render it impossible for you to stay in her service V ' She struck me !' cried Horfcense angrily, and the fir© glowed in her small, closely set black eyes. 1 X regret i exceedingly. Here is twenty pounds beyond your wages, and ym had better start for Lyons <u sorrow morning.' A few d.tys later Sir Victor was chagrined to learn, from the Italian valet who mho had engaged, that Mor tense did not go to Lyons bat had taken service with Sig uora Valli, a lady residing in the vicinity. Then a new maid was secured. 1 You must control yourself!' said Victor severely to his wife. 'Nothing is mor...

CHAPTER XVII. THE FATAL GIFT. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 24 June 1898

CHAPTER XVII. THE FATAL GIFT. Sir Victor St. Maurice saw that he had made a terrible mistake in his treatment of his young wife. She was too ignorant, and of a too little sensitive, native refinement, to be left unguarded and unamused J for long hours at a time as he had leffc her. His first business was to stamp out the shameful slander • which had been started. This he did thoroughly, by means of Yon Brandt, and Hortense was obliged to leave the neighbourhood. She sent a htble cramped note to Bose: ' Don't flatter yourself, madame, that Hortense has done with you ! No. I shall ruin you. You re member me.' ' That is the result of giving way to your temper F said [Sir Victor, with indignation. • i ' I am not afraid of her,' said Rose; ' only I'd like to shoot her.' • Sir Victor gave a.dinner party, and invited ail the principal in habitants in the neighbourhood. It v;as safe to do that. The beauty ] ;and rich dress of Bose would go J far to cover her deficiencies ol matmer, and tlie...

ALLORA SPRING WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 24 June 1898

Considerable discussion having taken place as to the value of Allora Sgring wheat from a milling point of view, the Minister for Agriculture has had a practical test made to decide the point. It is recognised that Allora Spring wheat, being an early maturing variety, is invaluable to the farmer when late sowing is necessary, or in districts where quick growth is essential to escape the rust. Mr. Smith had 100 bushels consigned to one of our leading millers, who ground it into flour, and obtained the reports of several bakers upon it. Fifty bushels consisted of plump grain, while the other fifty were very much pinched. The report shows that the full grain made an excellent flour, which pro duced a sound loaf, while the pinched grain was, of oourse, not so satis factory. The miller reports:—"I consider the Allora Spring wheat a good milling variety for mixing pur poses. I have had the flour tried by several bakers, who a!: pronounce the flour fiom the plump grain very good, but the pi...

Tardy repentance is better than none at allj.and we are glad to see that Mr. Barton nov? admits that the cry of <( Now or Never/' or u The' Bill, the whole Bill, and nothing but the Bill," was all bunkum, as we always maintained it to be. We hasten to offer our condolence to those of our fellow townsmen who were induced to accept it aa gospel truth, and to make assertions oo the strength of it which fehey may now proceed to withdraw. Mr. Barton, it is true, has not espreseed himself to this effect m ao many words. But he has expressed himself as .willing to entertain amendments to the Bill, and that surrenders the rath©?- ridicu lous position which he encouraged: his followers to take at the referendum. s& O • O • The situation aow ; fr3ms:' my curiouo0 Tiie Bill, upon, which we were told that the salvation of Aus tralia depended, has dropped out of sight, although Mr. Barton assured ! us that the country: had i declared in I its favor, and that he would procure t...

GraBB is now growing rapidly and stock are begin ning to pick up again. The total rain fall was about a couple of inches, A number of rabbiters have com menced the destruction of bunny, owing to the inducements held out by the expert when last on tour. There is apparently a wide field to be opened for converting the pest mfco cash, m the future. Large areas of wheat are being sown by both pastoralists and selectors,, and the total area compared with last year will be very large. Some delay was caused in the sowing through the rain coming late, but since every effort has been rnaJe to get as much land as possible under crop. The scarcity of water will no longer be felt, as the present rain has been heavy enough to fill the tanks. At a meeting of the Condobolin Pastures and Stock Board held recently, Mr. ...

Tichbourne. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 24 June 1898

(from our own correspondent.) A very desirable change in She weather occurred last week, when about an inch of rain fell in four days. The showers were oo frequent and of such short duration tfea& very little water ran off. Large areas of wheat have been sown all around {"he neighbourhood and much is m m advanced and flourishing condition. The grass, too, 10 quickly springing rap, and there is every prospect of an abundance of feed for sheep in a short time. The stock are in fair condition, notwith standing the past unfavorable weather, and there can be no reasonable cause of complaint here, as matters in the agricultural line appear to be in a much more prosperous state than that oi many other districts. The areas under wheat wiii far exceed that of last year, and it is to be hoped that the coming season will be favorable thereto. Mr Judd has sown extensively on the plain and the crop is in an ad vanced efate, well over the surface, waving in the wind. This season will prov...

Melita."! In the matter of evening wraps, it is quite time women were discarding the white cashmere cape, trimmed with white awansdown. At its best it always looks dowdy, and now that it is no longer fashionable, I for one hope that it will take its departure for ever. Opera and evening cloaks are prettier tfyan ewer before. A woman may bring h6r ingenuity and taste to bear on these wraps, without straying from the lines of fashion. A great deal of lace and ribbon are employed on them, all sorts of lines are chosen and darker tones predominate, One lovely confection of royal blue velvet had a draping of cream lace placed on the velvet in a fantastic fashioD. The lace was caught up at one side under a bow and long ends of blue satin ribbon, A comfortable looking collar edged with dark fur, giving that touch of warmth so necessary to the auccesBful appearance of cloaks. Another cloak more for a matron 1 had the foundation covered in emerald green lace, patterned with pale blue flowers...

A FATAL STEP. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 24 June 1898

I MTM STEP There is a story of a great artist who was painting a picture at a fear ful height from the ground. We say fearful to make this story effective. He was doing the job on a narrow scaffolding, and when nearly complet ing his work forgot his position, and waB stepping backwards into eternity to get a better look at his work. His assistant, seeing the peril of his master, dashed a bucketful of paint over the canvas, and thus saved the painter's life. Some people might want to know why he wanted to paint the picture so hig;h up for, and why anybody wanted a picture where it was a danger for anybody to go, and where nobody would see it; but in quisitive folks like these must see the beauty' of the assistant throwing a bucketful of paint over the master piece to make the painter rush for ward to save the newspapers calling him "mangled remains,," The real strength of the tale lies in the point that it was a life saved. It doesn't matter if he was a great artist, or a sky-scrapin...
