COBAR'S COPPER ITS DISCOVERY. COMPENSATION ASKED FOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 2 December 1899

COBAR'S COPPER. ITS DISCOVERY. COMPENSATION ASKED FOR. It may not be generally known that Mr Thomas Hartman, of Girilambone, claims to have been the discoverer of copper in N. S. W., and that he has sent in an application to the Govern- ment for some financial recompense   for the service rendered through the opening up of the Great Cobar and Girilambone copper mines. From the statement made by Mr. Hartman it seems that in 1869 he left Melbourne with a boring machine to sink for   water at Prairie station, about 40 miles S. W. of Cobar. As a drought was rag- ing at the time no water was found. When at Cobar in 1870, it was then a blacks' camp, he noticed that the natives had blue and green marks on their bodies, and he found the stones they had used for the purpose in a large outcrop about 65ft wide. Mr Hartman thought this was a copper lode, and decided to prove it, s0 he instructed his black boy to build a large fire at the base of the outcrop. In the mor...

READING ROOM. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 2 December 1899

READING ROOM. About 80 persons attended the meeting called by Mr Danvers Power, to consider the advisability of forming a reading room at Wrightville. Mr Roberts occupied the chair. Mr Dan- vers Power explained the object of the meeting, and spoke on the desirability of the establishment of a reading room. The Rev A. R. Martin also supported the proposal and offered to give a lantern lecture in aid of the movement. Mr T. Williams supported it and advised that as much publicity as pos- sible be given to the movement. Mr Walsh said they were fully in touch with the movement, and he thought they should form a committee straight away. Mr Hunter said they were much in- debted to Mr Danvers Power for bringing the matter forward. There was no doubt that a reading room would be a very great advantage. All persons could not afford to purchase papers and magazines which could be seen at a reading room. It was one of the best proposals that had come before them, and he would support it all he ...

Sent to an Editor. The following communication was received through the post by the Editor of the ' Hay Grazier.' Dear Sir, — I wish to taka up a small space of your valuable paper regarding a matter which should prove of vital consequence to many. My name is Charles William Versall, and I am at present living with Mr J, Armstrong, Guubai sta tion, Guubar. : In 1879 when I was valet to His Excellency Sir -Staudford Freelin, Governor of Trinidad, West Indies, I first experienced the symptoms of kidney and liver complaint and before long I began to suffer acute pains, the agony of which were unbearable, and I was unable to relieve them. After leaving Trinidad I went on to L- ndon where I grew worse- In fact, such was rny condition that when I was walking in the street my hands would get discolored, pains shoot across my body, my feet would swell so much I had to cling to the nearest place for support, I could not walk, so would be put in a cab and taken home. I was then taken to Green...

HOW MINERAL ? WATERS CURE When a patient reaches a mineral-water health resort, he is examined by the resi dent physician and ordered, to drink certain quantities of the water at certain times dur ing the day: this is increased from day to day, until we have known thirty glasses per day to bo taken. A part of tho benefit de rived is because of tho rest and change of scene; a part, perhaps, ia from the small quantity of the salts and othor bases con tained in these wotcra (we are not speaking of cathartic or chalybeate waters), but the benefit from this Bource iB very slight. The secret of the cure iB the quantity of water takeu. You can perform theao cures at home with ordinary drinking water, if of good quality, if you will require the patient to take it in tho same quantity aa at the springs. It acts by flooding the kidneys; by washing out the bladder; by unclogging tho liver and clearing the brain. The patient feels better from day to day; he is better. Irritable bladder IB relie...

A serious affair occurred in Bathurst gaol on Monday. It appears that a prisoner whose name has not been al- lowed to transpire walked up behind Warder McBean and felled him with a terrific blow on the head from a heavy yard broom. While the un- fortunate warder was lying uncon- scious it is alleged that several other prisoners participated in the assault. Some time elapsed before order was restored.

Wrightville School of Arts. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 9 December 1899

Wrightville School of Arts. On Wednesday evening last ano- ther meeting was held in connection with the above, when Mr Lew offered his hall for a rental of £1 a week, including lights and the use of a piano. Mr Lew would also erect a moveable partition, but would expect the use of the hall for any large entertainment, which, however was a rare occurrence. Mr Danvers Power considered this a fair offer, and that they might be able to pay the rent by means of small entertainments; he was prepared to   move that the offer be accepted. Several members present thought that £1 was rather beyond their means, but Mr Williams pointed out that 60 members should be able to start in the hall, since there would be very little other expense; besides there   were many more anxious to join. Mr Bagsley moved, and was sec- onded by Mr Langford, that the offer of Mr Lew be accepted from 18th last. This was carried unanimously. Mr Power was asked to purchase papers, but said he...

A BRILLIANT IMPROMPTU. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 9 December 1899

A BRILLIANT IMPROMPTU. To be able to carry off an untoward incident with an impromptu witticism of the first water is a gift that belongs to few. We think we are correct in stating that it was Sir J. W. Chitty who exclaimed when a piece of the ceiling fell down on his desk when he was in the midst of giving judg- ment : — 'Justita fiat, ruat conlum ' (Let justice be done, though the heavens fall), a remark that compares very favourably with the interpolated gag of a celebrated actor when a globe fell on to the stage of a pro vineial theatre: ' Hallo, the glass is falling; we shall havo raiu.v - When ono has a reproof to deliver, it as well (from the reproved's point of view) that the same should bo administered like the powder in the infantile jam — in as palatable a form ras possible. Perhaps that idea struck the present Maater of tho RoIIb, Lord Eahor, wheii a junior cited the ' Law Renorts ' us ' 2 Q.B.D.' When Lord Esher said, ' That is not tho way you should address us,' the ju...

SEARCHING FOR A FORTUNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 9 December 1899

SEARCHING FOR A FORTUNE. If you happen to have in your possession the particular French coin known as a five franc piece you may, unwittingly, be a mil- lionaire. Such at least is the belief shared by hun- dreds upon thousands of credulous French men, and Frenchwomen, many of whom spend most of their spare time destroying quantities of five-franc pieces in the hope of realising a fortune. The story of the strange five-franc fortune legend may be briefly told. A five franc piece, to begin with, is a silver coin, and is worth about 4s. Napoleon I. was very anxious to make the coin a popular one; and, with this end in view, he caused it to be cir- culated everywhere throughout France that he had inserted n one of the silver pieces, before it left the Mint, a bank note or order for 1,000,000 of these same five francs. Whether he really did this or not I cannot say for certain, but the weight of evidence would seem to allow that it was done. In the manuscript memoirs of the Duc de Feltie...
