My First and Last Trip to the Top of Mount Dangar. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 4 May 1898
My First and Last Trip to the Top of Mount Dangar. It is a good many years ago since I climbed (hat mountain (more than I like to count)—was young and foolish in those days and easily persuaded. I could not possibly be enticed to do it again. We started early in the morning, had some refreshments at Worondi, the property of Mr. F. W. Morris, who, ■whilst treating us to the best of every thing, tried to persuade us not to attempt the ascent on that day, as it was likely to be very hot; but we knew belter, and started on our way rejoicing. There were seven of us in the party, one being a surveyor, who told us that it was about 2200 feet from the bottom to the top. He smiled considering it was only that height; he smiled, too (at us), he had been there before. He had a kind of watch (forget what he called it, but believe the name com menced with an A) which he told us would give -him the exact height. Before we.got to the top, I would have believed him if. he?had told us that the heigh...
How to Help the Local Paper. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 4 May 1898
How to Help the Local Paper. You can aid your newspaper greatly by giving the local paper your general printing; if you do not feel able to run an advertisement, surely you can af ford to give the newspaper your cards, dodgers, billheads, envelopes, and all business printing to execute. , AThe newspaper man needs it, and it helps to pay the thousand and one free no tices he gives you and your town; s but don't give it to the travelling canvasser who can give you no such 'return, and is spending neither time, money, nor: brains in helping you to build • up your district. The : time may come when a newspaper may ■hve.simply' upon the revenue derived from the subscriptions and advertisements,; but no ordinary newspaper in any ordinary town can exist without auxiliary ..support derived from general printing.Therefore,if you want a good newspaper—one that will still help your town—give it all .your printing.

Electors' Rights and Voting Arrangements. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 4 May 1898
Electors' Rights and Voting Arrangements. T.hanKs to the prominence . given m the press to the importance of electors at once applying for their rights, the demand for these documents is now very brisk, and small crowds of from 12 to 20 people may be seen daily at the offices of the electoral registrars 111 the city and suburbs, waiting for their rights. There are already on the rolls about 290,00 people, and it is probable that by the end of the present week the number will be increased to fully 300,000. If this figure represents the real voting strength of the country, and 50 per cent, of the electors exercise the franchise (which is about the average for a general election) then there will be a vote cast of 150,000. But there is some doubt as to whether there really are 300,000 electors in New South Wales, as it is believed that the rolls contain, the names of many people who have left the colony or have shifted to other electorates, and have neglected to take out transferred rig...

Sale of Segenhoe. Large Improvements to be Carried Out. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 4 May 1898
Sale of Segenhoe. Large Improvements to be Carried Out. For the past two or three weeks, it has been known that negotiations were proceeding between the owners of Segenhoe and Mr. S. R. Wilson, a member of a well-known and wealthy Victorian family for the sale of the balance of the famed and historic Segenhoe Estate. On Saturday, Mr. Stafford whom Mr. Wilson has been in commnnication with a good deal in reference to the matter, received a wire from Mr. Wilson, asking him to at once call tenders for clearing and ploughing 700 acres of the property ; for which it was readily understood the sale had been completed. We now learn that Mr. Wilson has purchased the balance of the estate—about 13,000 acres—and intends to take up his residence at the homestead. This is good news for the district, which lias long been hoping that someone would lake in hand this valuable property, and put it to a much more profitable use. The fact that Mr. Wilson has called for tenders to clear and plough no l...

Shortly After the Fall. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 4 May 1898
Shortly After the Fall. An Incident in the Lives of our First Parents.—Adam was digging with a bent root in the corner of (he garden. Notthe original garden. It was after the fall. "What are yon doing, Adam ?" inquired Eve. She had Enoch on her arm, aud the child gazed abouthim with open-mounthed wonder. " Digging," said Adam. The shades of the blossoms on the swaying tree flecked the ground with changing light and shade. "For what?" inquired the mother of mankind. " Worms," said Adam. And he threw a scarlet wriggler at hev feet. Adam," said Eve, harshly, " you'ro diggin' up them little snakes just to .humiliate me," "No, I ain't," said Adam; "I'm goin' a-fishin'." "Fishin'," repeated Eve, contemptuously, "and do you call that, eurnin' yonr bread by by the sweat of your brow ?" The light wind tossed the blossoms, and the leaves flickered, and the birds saner- And Adam went on with his digging.

The Buried Baby. Mother and Daughter Committed for Trial. At Grafton on Saturday Mrs. Starkey was committed for trial to the next Cir cuit Court on a charge of causing the death of a newly-born female infant, whose body was found buried in her back yard. Evidence was given to the effect that accused was delivered ot a female child, which Dr. Hedley on a post mortem examination deposed to being born alive, and that death was caused by violence. Mrs. Starkey as serted that the child was still-born, and that she gave it to her daughter Mina to bury, wrapped in an old skirt. Mina-informed the police, when they went to make enquiries, that she buried something, but did not know it was the body of a child. The police dug up the body, which was covered with a foot of earth. A fire had been burn ing on the surface. Mina Starkey, a young woman about 20 years of age, was also committed for trial on a charge of being an accessory. Bail was al lowed—accused in £200 each.
Cricket. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 4 May 1898
Cricket. The match played on Saturday af ternoon last on the Show Ground, be tween teams representing M. Campbell rand Go.'s stores and St. Helier's Estate was witnessed by a good number of people. Mr. A. E. Goldsworthy was chosen captain of the storekeepers, and Miv John Campbell led the St. Helier's men. The former having won the toss elected to bat, and as a matter of course the opposing team took posses sion of the field, where they might have' been till now, if it had not been lor the magnanimity of the store keepers, who after knocking up 147 runs with the loss of six wickets, closed their innings. G. M'Neill came out of his shell and scored 71 runs, und D. Cameron was not out with 49 to his credit, The fielding was not quite up to the intercolonial form. Mr. Beaver caused a hearty burst of laughter by appearing at the wickets with a bat specially made for the occasion—(something less than a yard long and half that width)—but this was disallowed, and he had to de fend his stum...
