Piles for many years, and was, in fact a perfect martyr to tliom, For several days at a time the pain was almost insud'erablo, and 1 was scarcely able to walk or attend to my business. I tried all sorts of so-called remedies, but got no relief from any of tliem until I tried your .Lombardia, wliicli gave me instant relief, and the pain disappeared as if by magic, and I am now free from Piles and have been for a long time. I got several of 'my friends to try Lombardia. all of whom speak in the highest terms of it. I have nr. hesitation in recommending all who sud'er from Piles to use your Lombardia, as 1 am certain it will ease them in a very short time.— (Signed) John McKi.iioni:- , ?

Obituary. [Newspaper Article] — The Hillston Spectator and Lachlan River Advertiser — 19 February 1898

Obituary. We had neither the time nor space in our last issue to mote than briefly note the event that robbed Hillston of one of its pioneer farmers, and plunged one of the best known and most widely respected families in the district into deep mourning. We refer to the death, on Friday the 11th instant, of Mr Robert Varcoe, which said event took place at the residence of his son-in-law Mr. Harbrow. The deceased gentleman had visited Hay with his team a few days prior to his last illness, and had not long returned   home when he was seized with the attack of dysentery which caused his death. He had for some years past suffered from diabetes, but up to the last continued an active aud hard working life. He arrived in Hillston during Thursday evening, and his case   gradually became worse until the end. His brothers, Messrs, Benjamin and Joseph R. Varcoe, only returned from a visit to Sydney on the morning of the death, and the coach being late, Mr B. Varcoe ...

THE FEDERAL CAPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Hillston Spectator and Lachlan River Advertiser — 26 February 1898

THE FEDERAL CAPITAL. M«. Ly.vks proposal to have the tntlo fal capital in New South Wales, having been defeated in the Convention by a 'large majority, it is now ceitain that 'the first federal capital will not be in this colony.' Tlio withdrawal of Queetifa Iand has considerably altered tlm urea of centrality in tho proposed federa tion and Victoria is now the central urea; and, as such, has a preferable claim for the capital to bo within its .borders, bub thin claim need not be of a. permanent nature. When the American Republic was first estab lished, 'Philadelphia, in the State of Pennsylvania, was the first federal eapital, and continued to bp. so for several years until a federal district was formed out of territory tliat formerly belonged to several adjacent states, Tho city of Washington was then founded in this district, and for over sixty years, or until auout thirty years ago, its central position gave no cause foi complaint. .Recently, how ever, the Republic lias extended...

Looking Ahead. [Newspaper Article] — The Hillston Spectator and Lachlan River Advertiser — 26 February 1898

Looking Ahead. SlK, — The uneven distribution of the recent rains carries v.ifch it a lesson which should teach us regarding the value of forests and timber belts in obstructing rain clouds, and draining them of large quantities of moisture. Along tho river Darling, where-, the timber is tall and nbundant, the rainfall wag exceptionally heavy ; while in the more open country south ward the fall was comparatively light. The thickly timbered .coast districts were flooded, and the highlands got the full blast of the storm ; but the clouds dropped their moisture lightly on the western plains, and the lower Lichlan still remains a chain of sickly water hole# iu which fish die in the impure liquid. Still ringbarking and tree felling goes 011 apace in the hope of j raising grass which refuses to grow, | whether in shade or in artificial ex. | posure to gun light, The groat differ- | ence between Australianand American : procedure in regard to tree growth is suggestive, because of failure i...

GOVERNMENT LAND VALUES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hillston Spectator and Lachlan River Advertiser — 26 February 1898

GOVERNMENT LAND VALUES. ? Tn some parts of Riverina, wliero grazing land has proved to be very inferior, there are agitations more or less ainongsbthe owners of conditionally purchased land to have their holdings re-appraised by tho Government. The past few seasons have proved that much of the land thus 'Selected cannot carry more than one sheep to ten acres; and the business of grazing is therefore carried on at great loss, leading to -.abandonment of the holdings, although expensive improvements have been made thereon; In connection with this important matter a meeting of holders of inferior hinds wan held at Maude last week, at which a resolution was passed to prepare a petition point ing out that the persons signing ' had struggled for many years against the high capital value placed' upon their land, and were unable to pay the same owing to the inferiority of the pastur age, etc. The Minister of Lands was therefore requested to' order a re npprfiisemcnt of all -such lands iit t...
