CHANGE IN ANGLICAN CHURCH MATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 13 September 1892

CHANGE IX ANGLICAN CHURCH MATTERS. . THE Reverend Archdeacon Ilaimniek, of Holy Trinity, lilackall, lias effected an exchange with the Iiev. Mr. Gardener, the incumbent of rittsworth. on the Darling Downs, and leaves immediately i'or the south. Mr. Hamniick, during his residence in the went, has travelled jieriodically through his extensive parish, and if In? has not been able to gather a plentiful harvest in this portion of the vineyard, it lias been because the soil is generally considered unproductive in these parts, ana wants con tinually mulching with religious teaching, and a plentiful watering with refreshing discourses, to counteract tile dry seasons which parch lip and wither tile growth of religious sentiment in the west. We trust that the new Gardener will be successful in the special but not very pleasant work he has undertaken.

Vita sine Uteris mors est. BARCAL^ 1892, THE new division of Barcaldine has been proclaimed in the Government Gazette, and henceforward the local government of the district formerly included in what was known as No. 1 subdivision of Kargoolnah will be entrusted to a board of six members, consisting of three to be elected for the town and reserve of Barcaldine, and three to be elected from among the ratepayers of the other portion of the division. The country adjacent to the Jericho-Blackall road is transferred to Kargoolnah, and the country adja cent to the Barcaldine-Blackall road as far as to the Barcoo River becomes a portion of the new Division. The new Board will have no easy task to perform. In the first place a great deal has to be done, but the revenue of the Division is not sufficient to meet all the demands upon it. Boards, under present conditions, are deprived of the large subsidies previously re ceived from the G-overnment, and the endowment is now so much reduced that ...

STORIES TOLD Round the Camp Fire. Mrs. Stronge's Diary. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 13 September 1892

STOBEES TOLD * IT is the modem fashion to attribute every individual characteristic to the influence of heredity. "Whether a man be energetic or easy-going, austere, or addicted to drink, the latter-day philospher seeks for the fons ft oriffo of the fact, not in the person himself, but in his ancestors. This may generally speaking be right enough, but it would have been somewhut difficult to account in such a ?way for Miss Rosa Delf's peculiar qualities. Hiss Rosa Delf was by nature romantic, and irresolute to a degree. The characteristic k tad not hitherto been noticeable in the Delf ' family. At any rate Miss Rosa's immediate progenitors were entirely free from them. Mr. Ebenezer Delf, her father, and Mrs. Jane Haria Delf, her mother, were as practical and determined as a long, laborious, and success ful career in butter dealing could make them. Perhaps if Miss Rosa had gained more of 'Her knowledge of life from butter dealing and less from novels, she would have been like her par...

CHAPTER XIX. AN EXPERIMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 13 September 1892

CHAPTEB XIX. AN EXPERIMENT. Much to her own astonishment, Lucia [ found herself allowed new liberty. She was permitted to spend the afternoon frequently with Octavia, and, on several occasions, that young lady was invited to partake of tea at Oldclough in company with no other guest than Francis Barold. " I don't know what it means, and I think it must mean something," said Lucia to Oc tavia, " but it is very pleasant. I never was allowed to be so intimate with anyone before." " Perhaps," suggested Octavia sagely, " she thinks that if you see me often enough, you will get sick of me, and it will be a lesson to you." " The more I see of you," answered L.ncia, with a serious little air, " the fonder I am of you. I understand you better. You are not at all like what 1 thought you at first, Ostavia." " But I don't know that there's much to understand in me." " There is a great deal to understand in you," 6he replied. " You are a puzzle to me often. You seem so frank, and yet one knows s...
