THE I1AHCALUINE BREWERY. OK Saturday afternoon Messrs. Meacliam and Leyland put the finishing touch on the lofty edifice being built for the Harcaldine Brewery Company and surmounted the cupola of the "tower with the colours of republican Franco.

The water will be pumped by the engine into the top story, and the same machinery will work the refrigerator which brings the beer down in temperature.

A Terrible Country. COVERED WITH SKELETONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 6 September 1892

A Terrible Country. COVERED 'WITH SKELETONS. ON the lonely wind-swept Island of San Nicholas, 80 miles off the coast of Ventura County, where as far back as the memory of man runs, hundreds of skeletons have dotted the valleys and hillsides, local arclucologists are now gathering the relics of a strange ex tinct race. The island is ten miles long and oval in shape, being four miles across the widest part. Strange utensils of serpentine, sandstone and steatite are found there among the human bones, and the island and its erst while inhabitants have a history bo curious that it is difficult to comprehend. In 1835 the Padres of Santa Barbara, learning that there were but 1C of the strange Indian race then living there, determined to rescue them from the island. They went over in a sloop and succeeded, as they thought, in getting all on board. At the last moment an Indian woman returned for her child, and one of the frequent storms of the channel islands spring ing up, the Bloop was dri...

A BROKEN HILL DELEGATE [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 6 September 1892

A BROKEN HILL DELEGATE Mil. THOMAS, delegate from the Broken Eill miners, is announced to address a public meet ing at Longreach on Tuesday evening next. At Rockliampton there was a very small audience present, but in the West Mr. Thomas is sure of meeting a laree number of Ins friends and to collect a big subscription, for the simple reason that during the shearers' 6trike of 1891 the miners of Broken Hill gene rously contributed to the defence fund liere. It is, therefore, the duty of the shearers hero to respond to the appeal from Broken Hill, irrespective of any idea they may hold that the strike there will collapse as suddenly and end as disastrously in Uroken Hill as it did in Barcaldinc.

The Western Champion. Vita sine literis mors est. BARCALDINE, TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 6, 1892. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 6 September 1892

Vita sine literu mors est. BARCALDINE, TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 6, 1892. THE motion made by Mr. SAYEBS to raise a revenue by a special tax on the ealaries of Civil servants was defeated by a large majority, as it deserved to be. To the salaries paid to the officers employed in administering the internal affairs of the country no objection can be made on the Bcore that the services are too handsomely recompensed ; for we have only to compare them with what is paid by private firms to the moBt capable servants they employ. This is proved by the fact that when the various Governments of the Aus tralian Colonies desired to engage the services of proved masters in any business they found that they would have to pay much higher salaries than it had been usual to offer to Civil ser vants. They discovered that for the services of capable men in their parti cular line of business the Railway Companies in the old country paid salaries considerably higher than were paid here to any Civil servants bel...

CHAPTER XVIII. ADVANTAGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 6 September 1892

CHAPTER XVm. ADVANTAGES. The game over, (Jctavia deserted her partner. She walked lightly, and with the air of a Tictor, to where Mr. Barold was standing. She was smiling and slightly flashed, and for a moment or so stood fan ning herself with a gay Japanese fan. " Don't yon think I am a good teacher?" she asked, at length. " I should say so," replied Barold, withont enthusiasm. "I am afraid I. am not a judge." She wared her tan airily. f< I hod a good pnpil," she Baid. Then she held Iter ton still for a moment, and tamed folly toward him. " I bare done something yon don't like," sbe said. " I knew I had." lit. .Francis Barold retired within himself at once. In his present mood it really ap peared that she was assnming that he was very much interested indeed. _ " I should scarcely take the liberty upon a limited acquaintance," he began. She looked at bim steadily, fanning herself with slow, regular movements. 'Tea," she remarked. "You're mad. I knew yotf were." He was so ...

CHAPTER XVI. CROQUET. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 6 September 1892

CHATPEE XVI. CROQUET. I Lucia was permitted to form one of the players in the game of croquet, being escorced to and from the Ecenc by Francis Barold. Perhaps it occnrred to Lady Theo bald that contrast of English reserve and maidenliness with the free and easy manners of young women from Nevada might lead to some good result. " I trust your conduct will be such as to show that you at least have resided in a civi lised land," she said. "The men of the pre sent day may permit themselves to be amnsed by young persons whose demeanor might bring a blush to the cheek of a woman of forty, but it is not their habit to regard them with serious intentions." Lucia reddened. Sbe did not speak, though she wished very much to utter the words which rose to her lips. Lately she was ronsed to auger, speeches of quite a clever and sarcastic nature presented them selves to her mind. She was never equal to utter them aloud, but sbe felt that, in time, she might, because of course it was quite an advan...

A Dearly Bought Victory. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 6 September 1892

A Dearly Bought Victory. " Bct surely we can get four runnel's together t-omeliow, Ackworth. I've set my heart on winning the Cup, and it's hard to be robbed of it like this," and his gmce of Coalville looked long and earnestly at his trainer in the liope that he would be able to find a solution of the difficulty. Few sportsmen of tliis or any other age boasted a more honourable Turf record than the Duke of Coalville, and his ambition to become the proud possessor of the Stockbridge Cup was a perfectly laudable one, born of the desire which many of the most upright patrons of racing have always felt to nee their side boards decorated by such trophies in prefer ence to laying themselves out for handicap roups, in the realisation of wliich chicanery of a more or less pronounced cliaractor must always be resorted to. It was in the old days of the Stockbridge Cup, when that event used to be contested over two miles of ground, and before the latter-day dearth of Cup champions had rendere...

Original Poetry. DAYBREAK. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 6 September 1892

DAYBREAK. How sweet to live tliis breezy, summer morn ! Watching until the first grey streaks of dawn Brighten the dulness of the eastern sky With rays of light which ever multiply. The lierald star now pales 'ncath old Sol's beams, And as his splendour o'er the grey sky gleams, Lighter and lighter grows the dawning day, "Until at length night's pall has rolled away. O'er yonder hill the proud sun slowly steals, .And all creation now his blest warmth feels, And modest flovrets open to the day In silent thanks to God for cheering ray. His brightness is undimmed though ages old. And all tilings Midas-like lie turns to gold, How lovely is the gentle summer sky As from his gleaming rays night's dark sliades fly. The sunlight shines on tree, on hill and dale, Gilding the fleecy clouds and distant soil, Cheering the poor man's home and castle grand, A Heaven-sent gift from God's impartial hand. Great is Thy power! O mighty God of love ! Who reignest in a wondrous world above, O ! when thi...
