ARAMAC AFFAIRS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 30 August 1892

ARAMAC AFFAIRS. Omt correspondent writes on August 26: Our little town has a somewhat deserteJ ap pearance this week : several of the male por tions of the community are away in Longreach for the races there. The continued dry wea ther is becoming a source of anxiety; stock of all kinds are suffering freely for want of grass and water. I hear from a traveller who has just come from the desert country, who says there are hundreds of sheep bogged in every waterliole along the road by which he came; he also informs me that Mr. Porter, at Boongoon doo, has only about two weeks' supply of water on his country, and there is notliing left for him to do but to travel with his stock: there arc many others placed in a similar position. There appears before us nothing but immense losses in liorses, sheep and cattle and general depression. Business is almost at a standstill at present; the only thing to look forward to is the cutting out of the Aramac station, which will, it is cxpectcd, cut ou...

MR. M LEAN'S VISIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 30 August 1892

MR. SI LEAN'S VISIT. MR. PETF.R M'LEAN, Under-Secret ary of the Agricultural Department, left Barcaldine last Monday evening for Longreach, where he had been requested to inspect and report upon the site for a proposed experimental agricultural farm. The plans of locality had been sent to him by Mr. A . J. Richardson, but that gen tleman was not in Longreach, and in conse quence of the holidays and the races, no public interest was taken in the matter. Indeed Mr. M'Lean was rather annoyed that no arrange ments had been made to enable him to inspect, the proposed site; and it was only by the courtesy of Mr. M'Kenzie, the well-borer, who placed a buggy and horses at his disposal, that Mr. M'Lean was able to go out and have a look at the place intended for experiment, and he was not quite sure whether he saw the place that had been selected. He left Long reach again on Tuesday and proceeded to Bockhampton, on his way to Cairns and Her berton. He expressed himself very much pleased with...

Original Poetry. To Tell the Age of a Horse. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 30 August 1892

To Tell the Age of a Horse. To tell the age of any horse, Inspect the lower jaw of course, The six front teeth the tale will tell, And every doubt and fear dispel. Two middle "nippers" you behold Before the colt is two years old, Before eight weeks two more will come, Eight months the " corners" cut the gum. The outside grooves will disappear From the middle two in just one year. In two years, from the second pair; In three, the corners, too, are bare. At two the middle " nippers" drop. At tliree, the second pair can't stop. When four years old the third pair rose, At five a full new set he shows. The deep black spots willl pass from view At six years from the middle two; The Becond pair at seven years; At eight tlie spot each " corner" clears. From middle " nippers" upper jaw. At nine, the black spots will withdraw. The second pair at ten are white: .Eleven finds the " corners" light. As time goes on, the horsemen know The oval teeth tliree sided grow. They longer get, project befo...

Cadet Templeton also read the burial service over an inmate of the hospital who died last Tuesday. A number of the in mates attended the service. Mr. Templeton, wlio has only been here five months, has done a wonderful lot of good since his arrival, and it is a pity that owinc to the want of funds he is not able to extend his operations outside the town. He is a servant to all men, always wil ling to giro a helping hand to those in need; he also visits the court-house, and in many cases has paid fines for men who were not able to pay them, and has also given them blankets, clothes and other necessaries re quired by the unfortunate men wlio are placed in such a condition; he also visits our hospital regularly.

Lite |extern ^tampion. Vitn tint' Uteris mum est. BARCALDINE. TUESDAY. AUGUST 30,1892. IN his Budget epecch SIR THOMA.8 MCII.WRAITU made some remarks which were loudly cheered by the House. Coming from such a staunch Conservative, and from a statesman who onco said in Parliament that by the closer settlement of the western downs he meant the improvement of the country to carry a greater number of sheep, tfio pregnant sentences hav ing reference to tho utilisation of the western downs for agricultural pur poses and the probabilities of irriga tion in connection therewith are worthy of the applause with which they were greeted. Referring to the work done by the Department of Water Supply the Colonial Treasurer said:-"When wo consider that this 84,300 square miles comprises some of the best land in Australia, and that artesian water in the enormous quantities found puts cultivation by irrigation in the far west among the probabilities, I think we have good cause for looking forward wit...

Mr. Gladstone as a Daring Diner Out. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 30 August 1892

Mr. Gladstone as a Daring Diner Out. TnE Loudon Court Journal says:-" Mr. Glad stone dines out with a regularity and daring tliat could not be excelled by a man of half bis years. One who meets liim often in these gastronomic tournaments says that Mr. G.'s participation in their enjoyment is by 110 means perfunctory. Some men post GO, still dining out, enjoy themselves under severe restrictions, daintily picking their way through the the menu. Mr. G., past 80, is apparently nnder no such restrictions. He eats what comes, generally right through the menu, and can take his glass of port after his libation of champagne, a test from which many an ardent diner out would shrink. His conversation is a never flagging flood, brimful of interest. If it were only possible to re produce a verbatim report of bis conversation at a dinner-party, where the peisonal sur roundings are sufficiently interesting to excite bim to talk, there would be produced a volume of interest, biographical, autobiogr...
