THE WONDERFUL JIM. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 23 December 1899

THE WONDERFUL JIM.   A piece of old board is the back of the steed, His saddle, old carpeting, gorgeous indeed. His legs were the rounds of an old kitchen chair. His tail is of leather instead of horsehair. His head is a block, and his eyes are a pair Of knots that most luckily chanced to be there. On the old kitchen rockers he travels with And the namo of this wonderful pony is Jim. With Rex on liis bacit, ovor carpet and floor, He travels great distances, millions or more Of miles ovor mountain and valley and plain, Through Fairyland's Grottoes, past Castles in Spain. To tho limits of Playland and then homo again. No journey I know of is too hard for him. No roads aro too rough for the wonderful Jim- ., I And though he is old and his rockers i askew Ho travels as well now as when he was new. ' WithRex on his back and a string in his jaws Ho starts not a bit from the toy tiger's claws. In the Nursery Jungle there's nothing so grim That it has any terror for wonderful J...

Late Tomatoes. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 23 December 1899

Late Tomatoes. Mr. V. D. Paterson, of Summer Hill, writes : ' A friend of mine and I have each tried an experiment with tomato-plants, whioh, I think, will interest your readers. Towards the end of the season, when the plants were about done to all appearance, we cut them down to the ground, and gave them a good dressing of manure and plenty water. In a very short while they sprouted, and became fine plants, and wo havo had a plentiful supply of lato fruit in consequence. ' With some othor plants whioh I have at present I purpose similar treatment, and by this mcana hopo to got very curly fruit, as. owing to tho extra trouble involved rfi forcing tho plants in a hotbed, oto., I think this plan will bo muoh simpler and just as effectual. ' The plants mentioned in my first para graph aro still bearing, and appear likely to continuo all tho winter, and, as tho frosts aro never sovoro about Sydney, I think,, by adopting a method somewhat similar to that described, it would be possible) ...

HITS AND BITS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 23 December 1899

HITS AND BITS. Rockefeller, the American oil king, was a lazy boy, whose highest ambition was to be a trapeze performer in a circus. His wealth is now estimated at £40,000,000. The longest stretch of straight railroad lino in America is on tho Lakoshore railway, beginning at a point three miles west of Toledo, and running 69 miles without a curve. ' When tho little girl is naughty,' says Miss Jessie M. Fowler, giving a mother direct ocs for curing her small daughter's bad temper, ' put on her best gown and you will seo that sho cannot withstand its influence.' The Dutch ere the largest consumers of to bacco. In 1883 the consumption in Holland and Belgium was 84 ounces to each inhabit tant. Next -comes Switzerland wilh 82.

The bicyclist raised on one elbow, reached back an arm   towards a rear pocket of the knickerbockers, and collapsed, insensible. A sergeant of polico felt in the pocket and drew-out a silver whisky flask labelled ' J. J. Jones, 400, Bonton Ave, 'Go to 400, Bonton Avenue,' said the sergeant to a policeman, ' and tell Mrs. Jonos that Mr. Jones has—' The sergeant paused, and drow a hand mirror from the other rear pocket of the knickerbockers.

INSANITY IN ANIMALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 23 December 1899

INSANITY IN ANIMALS. That animals are, to a certain extent, sub- ject to the same mental maladies as human beings has not been a popular belief among insanity experts. It has, however, become necessary to admit that thore is some corroa. pending uftcctiou in animals and arauor one answering to tho samo description. Hydro phobia appears to bo a form of insanity, and it is said tlmt horses havo gone mad from fright. Thoro is no good reason why this should not be, and very much enn be brought in us corroborative testimony of the state ment. When a perfectly maungeablo ani mal, hitherto without fault or evidonce of vioiuudnoss, suddenly turns upon its keeper and savagely attacks him, thero must be bouib good reusous for iu Tho animal nature is so mude uj- that cause und effect stand in very close relation to each other. It is, thoroforo, wiso to make no sweeping asser tions on conditions of this sort until inrnn testiblo evidonco is furnished upon which to base the premises. He: Give mo...

Gladstone News. Gladstone Municipal Election. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 23 December 1899

Gladstone News. Gladstone Municipal Election. Last week was a very important one in the public life of the new munici- pality of Gladstone. Three years ago this township was indeed small, but it was then pretty freely stated that the place would rapidly grow. Even now the rates from the separated munici- pality only amount to about £180 annually, that is supposing it was all collected. The residents very naturally clamoured to the Cobar Council to have the road repaired, but if the   matter is thought over it will be read- ily seen that the cost of making the three chain road would, absorb a very much greater amount of money pro- portionately than the aldermen would be justified in voting. And, from an- other point of view, this road is the main thoroughfare of the district, and as such should be maintained by the Government. It is to be much re- gretted that very little of the colony's road vote is disbursed around Cobar, nothwithstanding the fact that there is a vast ...

True Till Death. [Copyright.] Days of Danger.     Thrilling Narratives of the Bushranging Times. — « — In Seven Parts. Period, 1845.   PART III. It was three months since Ward knew that Weston was still at the ' junction of the two rivers, but even if he had Jeft, the fugitives might be able to find some roots or seeds in his garden which would be useful. They soon' found they were in the right locality, as less than a quarter of a mile from the creek a small flock of sheep were met. - They were ? not shepherded, but a couple of hundred yards beyond they caught sight of a large hut standing in a small clearing at the base of a range which ran to the east. Smoke was issuing from the sod chimney, and, dressed as they were in the uniform of law and order champions, they boldly advanced, as it was most improbable there would - be an ambush at the place. , ..When about a hundred and fifty yards distant a dog began to bark at them, and the old man ca...

Who are the Greatest Heroes of a War ? [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 23 December 1899

Who are the Greatest Heroes of a War ? 'I saw in Plevna,' says Mr. David   Christie Murray, ' one of the most ex- traordinary bits of human valour I ever beheld, an act that, to my mind, deserves to be recorded over and over again. The hospitals were in an absolutely unspeak- able condition. There were men on the beds, under the beds, and between the beds. Cholera was, there, and fever, and smallpox, and every imaginable kind of Horror. The hospital service was alto gether incomplete. 'When our party reached tlio town, the young Irish doctor who had charge of the hospital was without a drop of chloroform, without a surgical instru ment which would do its duty, without an inch of charpie or an inch of bandage. He wa9 a young fellow of extraordinary valour, as he proved over and over again in the course of the campaign, but when we reached him he was in such a state of despair that he was almost on the verge of suicide. 'The chief surgeon of our party waB Dr. M'Kcller, no...

Spanish Wooden Bullets [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 23 December 1899

Spanish Wooden Bullets. It is well known that-Spanish soldiers in Cuba were poor marksmen, but great surprise has been expressed at the remarkable lack of execution which characterised their fire at Guantanamo and Santiago, and an officer of the United States gunboat Montgomery has been able to throw some light on the matter. He visited tho Maria Teresa after tho destruction of Cervera's fleet in search of souvenirs. Ho found: a largo number of Mausor cartridges in groups of five ready to go into tho magazines of tho guns, and, if the entiro Spanish army and navy were equipped with that kind of ammunition, both Cervora and Toral were amply justified in surrendering when they did. 'The cartridges consisted of a metal shell loaded with hair and a sprinkling of powder. The bullet was of neither brass nor lead, but of wood. Some army contraotor had imposed on the ordnance bureau of the Spanish navy, but to what extent tho wooden Mausor bullets wero used will probably never be known. ; S...

Does the Moon Affect Insomnia? [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 23 December 1899

Does the Moon Affect Insomnia ? — -o - 'The most singular case of insomnia of which I ever heard,' says a well-known physician, ' is that of a friend of mine in a neighbouring town, a lady of middle age. ' With the exception of her peculiar insomnia, she is in robust health. She is an uncommonly sound sleeper in the ' dark of the moon,' but as the new moon approaches its first quarter she is attacked with wakefulness. She can sleep only at long intervals during the night, and only a few minutes at a time. ' The sleeplessness increases with the fulling of the moon, and by the time that stage in the moon's course is reached she is unable to obtain eveu the slightest slumber. She remains in a state of utter wakefulness until tho moon begins to wane, when she gradually grows sleepy again. ' .Whon tho period of dark moon has arrived she resumes her unbroken slumber. This condition has prevailed for more than ten years.'
