Woman's World. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 8 July 1898

[By " MELITA.'n I wonder when women wiii be abie to accept a fashion that suits them, remain steadfast to it, and have the courage to cast eside wayfaring whiffs and notions that come along, ready to make the first woman who accepts there a perfect (right. A woman should make herself as pretty and sweet as it lies in her power. If she has a good and wholesome mind, her tace will show if, her expression will be as the foliage of a Leaithy tree, rich in haauty and pleasant for the eye to rest upon. Paint and powder have a certain effect on the features but never on the expression. 0( course in the case oS: <c rmske upa" it la dif ferent. The style of dressing the hair and clothing the body should be looked upon as the frame of the picture. Very often we aee a beauti .KUi picture robbed of half its effect, by the frame thit surrounds it. And so if. is with one's " hub!it!}ants—they have the power to make or mar a woman.

Half-Holiday Association. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 8 July 1898

The weekly half-holiday of the shop assistants of Parkes was in augurated under the most happy auspices on Wednesday afternoon. and judging by the enthusiasm displayed by those primarily concerntd, the success of the movement's future should be tully assured. For weeks pist, the male portion of the shop employees have been taxing their brains and exhausting all their re sources, preparing for the fancy foot ball fray that had been arranged to mark the event, and the result was manifest in the fearful and won derful "get-ups" paraded on the foot ball field. Three or four hundred people were present, the band turned out to enliven proceedings, and need less to add all and sundry were well pleased with the afternoon's amuse ment, Previous to the commence ment of operations, the President (Mr. 0. J. Howard) called on the Postmaster - General (Hon. Joseph Cook), who was present, to open the proceedings. Mr. Cook, on coming forward, eaitf he was di 'i<rhf"3 ' with the coinci de...

BURNING A WITCH. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 8 July 1898

One of the persecutions which we are fortunately free of is the law which permitted a human being to be burnt to death. That was a common enough incident two or three centuries ago, when you could be charred up for your religious opinion, for cursing your enemy, or for curing sickness too thoroughly, The last-named was en couraged by the medical fraternity of that day to put down rivals who were likely to prove any way dangerous to their income. Old women who as- , sisted their neighbours to tide over some sickness with some herb that was not acknowledged by (ho profession ran a great risk of losing her life by1 the fire, and it was not uncommon for her to have been accused by the very people whom she had been benefited, averring that they had been cured by supernatural means. With the ad vance of knowledge the public ac knowledged their cures in the manner of Mr. Thos. Kitchen, Glen Morrison, Walcha, who writes on bis cure as follows :—" I desire to address you a few lines concerni...

Our Mines. (By "Nugget" in the "Town and Country Journal.") KOH-I-NOR MINE [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 8 July 1898

" Nugget" m the " Town Country Journal.") KOH-I-NQR MINE The Koh-i-nor Gold Mine is situated 1| miles south from the town Parkes. The area of the lease is about 12 acres, and it is the property of an Orange syndicate, with Mr. T. Mathews mm? manager. It is an east an-d west formation, and is close to the main quartz belt spoken of m a previous article as running in a general north and south direction from Forbes to Parkes. It is on the eastern side of this formation, and, bo far as is at present known, comprises two iodes running parallel to each other, about 30ft apart on the surface, but which conjoin at the 420ft level in the main shaft, which is the greatest* depth attained. The size of She reef is here 3ft 6in wide, going ' down nearly vertically between well defined diorite walls. In places the lode is 12ft wide. The greater portion of the workings are on the eastern side of the shaft. Near the surface both Jodes yielded very rich returns, but at about the 100ft levels they we...

Notes and Comments [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 8 July 1898

josaiis [By "Noogoora."] Charity begins at home"-~even in the; disbursement of municipal favors. It often happens thot extra day iaborera are required by the Parkea Council, and the usual rule that, seems to have been followed is to give work to the first man that comes along. At first blush this mode of procedure may appear fair-, but it is not so—to very many ratepayers. Asm all other towns we have m our midst many ratepayers, poor and unem ployed through no fault; of their own. They are at all times ready and willing to do a day's work when they oan get it} and 1 take it it would not only be a gracious act on the part of the aldermen—in fact, it becomes their bounden duty—to give the preference to these men. Even a week's work, besides enabling them to buy neces saries or life, would also probably put them in the way of paying some of the rates they owe. I hope the Coun cil will in future observe this as a golden rule, and at" all times give ratepayers the preference when they ar...

Current Jottings. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 8 July 1898

Somersaulting is the popular pastime of the present day. Mr Want has just flipped back to Mr Reid. Mr Reid has gracefully jumped to receive Mr Want. A.nd that was all that was wanted to make them happy of course. Con cerning Mr Barton's change of front it may be remembered that about a mouth ago he said, "What J we want is a Bill that is fair to us and this Bill is abundantly so. There is nothing in it that does New South Wales an injustice, and where its material interests are concerned it is treated on as abso lutely fair and just a basis as any other of the five colonies. Why then wait ? Does not the rejection of this Bill mean the rejection of Federation ? I say ' Yes.' " * * tie To-day he evidently says " No," for he is prepared to throw his own Bill overboard and support another. None but fools stick to opinions whether they are right or wrong, however, and if Mr Barton believes the new Bill is the better one he is quite right in standing up in its support. All is fair in love...

Platina. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 8 July 1898

(from our own correspondent.) ! The dry weather has broken up at I last. Last week we had a splendid tall of rain, and in consequence the country round is looking well. The grass is springing fast, and everything seems Co improve all round, Pepper's dam is nearly full ; Bourke's and Page's dams are full, and so is O'Neill's. At the different dams things are looking like business. The miners will get all their dirt washed up shortly, and then they will start on the surface. I am told some shares have been bought in one of the eurface claims, and that a fairly good price was paid for them. | Pepper ia still puddling at the water shaft, Just now we have pleuty of water but no meat. Platina is experiencing a meat famine at the present time ; our butcher not having brought any meat to Platina for the last nine days, and there ia ao likelihood of getting any Tor some time to come.

FORBES MINING. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 8 July 1898

The Lachlaa Goldfields Company, Limited, last year purchased Sinclair's claim and some adjoining leases, situated about two miles and a half north of Forbes, and commenced operations about the beginning of September last, under ; the manage ment of Mr. W. Thomas, who came from Peak Hill to take charge of the mine. Since then the mine has been sunk to 150ft, the main shaft being 10ft by 4ft. Eight hundred feet of driving has been done along the line of reef at the 70ft level, and 50ft along the 150ft level. Heavy water was encountered after going down 70ft, but this is easily kept down with an 8in Cornish draw-lift, driven by a 20-hor8e power engine, Two other shafts have been sunk on the property, connecting the main shaft, and thus giving plenty of ventilation to the men working below. Two large tanks of 5000 yards each have beeu excavated on the company's lease, and the earth out of th'em banked around, thus forming a large dam, giving a plenti ful supply of water. The company is ...
