Muswellbrook Athletic Club. The committee of the local Athletic   Club met at the School of Arts on Monday night last. There were present Messrs. E. C. Brecht, F. Budden, P. Healy, H Bourke, W. Gentlemun, J Phillips, and T. H. Rixon (Hon. Secretary.)       Mr. Brecht was voted to the chair. Accounts amounting to £16 19s,   6d, in connection with the recent de- monstration, were read by the Secretary, and, on the motion of Messrs. Budden and Phillips, passed for payment. Mr. Gentlemun moved, pursuant to notice, "That a sports meeting be held on the 24th May; in aid of the funds of the Cricket Club, Civilian Rifle Club, and G Company Rifle Club." Mr. Healy seconded the motion. He thought the club should extend its operations. There were plenty of athletes growing up in the district and they should provide sport for them. If a good programme was prepared for the 24th May he thought the meeting would prove a success, and w...

LATEST TELEGRAMS. Sydney, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 12 January 1898

LATEST TELEGRAMS. Sydney, Tuesday. In September last Mr. H. P. White, Assistant Paymaster of H M.S. Lizard, was tried by court martial in Sydney Harbour, found guilty, sentenced to eighteen months imprisonment, and ordered to be dismissed from the ser-. vice, on charges of embezzlement. Owing to the receipt of a cable from the Admiralty authorities, directing that the remainder of the sentence be remitted, and also that the dismissal from the navy with disgrace be altered to simply dismissed from the navy, White has been released from Goul- burn Gaol, where he was serving his   .sentence.         It is expected that Howell will be chosen to play in the third test cricket, match, and that M'Kibbin will be left out.       The steamer-Lubra, from 'Sydney to Fremantle, struck an unchartered rock about 120 miles from the latter port, and was badly damaged. Her pas- sengers and crew wer...

Cricket. Campbell Trophy Competition. 'ABERDEEN V. MUSWELLBROOK. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 12 January 1898

Cricket. Campbell Trophy Competition. ABERDEEN V MUSWELLBROOK.     'The Aberdeen and Muswellbrook teams met on the local ground on Sat-   urday afternoon in the Campbell trophy competition, the game resulting in an easy win for the local team, who were well represented,, while Aberdeen had not their full strength, the team includ- ing a couple of lads. Lipscomb won, the toss and elected to bat; he and D. Campbell opened for Muswellbrook, to the bowling of Wright and Mason, and runs came freely from the commence- ment, but Campbell's life was a short one, as he was run out after scoring six. Matthews followed, and the batsmen continued to force the pace. Lipscomb, who was very nearly bowled on two occasions, was too anxious, to get runs and did not play as safe a bat as usual, was disposed, of for 29, the score then standing at 2 for 45. Garnsey filled the vacancy and was bowled off hisr pad by the first ball, he received. Forrest came next, and...

Items of Interest. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 12 January 1898

Items of Interest. A patient recently admitted to the     Mudgee hospital on a non-paying   ticket it a s found to possess a banking account with a nest egg of £75. On being told that he would have to pay £1 1s per week he declared that he could not afford to do so and left.   Some of the corn crops on the Hawkesbury Bottoms promise to ripen very early this season, and in many cases are approaching that stage now. On the whole, the maize crops in the district are good, and with favorable weather should yield well. An agricultural expert is of opinion that as a fodder, the tubers of the Jeru- salem Artichoke are of great value, and it is generally agreed that this food will largely increase the milk yield of' cows. At the Hawkesbury Agricultural College this season Mr. Valder is planting a large quantity of this orop, with the view of carrying out systematic feeding experiments, Horses, sheep, and pigs also do well on the tubers.

Mr. Reid at Mudgee. The intentions of the Government. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 12 January 1898

Mr. Reid at Mudgee. THE intentions of the Government. The Premier, who paid n visit to Mudgee, accompanied by the Post- master General (Mr. Cook) and several members of Parliament, on Thursday night delivered a speech of an hour and 35 minutes duration. He re- viewed the work of the Parliament,     dealing at length with the land and income taxes. He pointed out that these taxes fell lightly on the poorer classes of the community, and not heavily on even the wealthy sections. The Government had during their term of office lessened the taxation on the backs of the bulk of people by something like £400 000. Mr. Reid also quoted the reforms effected by       the bills passed by the government,   and claim that its record of work   was better than that of any previous   Administration. The general election was promised for June next, and law reform was foreshadowed for next session. T...

Poultry Breeding. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 12 January 1898

Poultry Breeding.   From the Department of Agriculture we have received an interesting pamph- let reprinted—from the Agricultural Gazette of September; -October, and November, 1897 -- on the subject of " Profitable poultry breeding for the local and English markets." The author is Mr. Geo. Bradshaw. The   work is issued under the auspices of the Board for Exports, and is designed to meet a want which all poultry breed- ers have felt more or less in the past. It is a concise and practical handbook on the subject which forms its title   In the introduction the Board says:— " The Board, having taken into con- sideration the fact that local markets can only absorb a limited number, of poultry and eggs, some time ago advised the Government to provide the necessary appliances for preparing for export and finding markets abroad for surplus stocks, with the result that a profitable outlet has been found in Western Australia, South Africa and &n...

Kicndyke. To the Editor of the Chonicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 12 January 1898

Klondyke. To the Editor of the Chronicle.     SIR,--As an Australasian mining man of eighteen years standing, a member of the A.M A., just returned .from the Chilcoot Pass, I desire to point out to fellow workers the following facts The reported finds in the Yukon Basin are correct. To get there, the cheapest, quickest, and best route is, by the Canadian-Australian line from   Sydney to Vancouver, British Colum- bia, thence per boat to Skagway Bay, and thence over the Chilcoot Pass. There are. men in Australia who are advertising San Francisco, Seattle, and Victoria, B. C., to whom do not listen, also turn away, from any person or company., who try to get you to go to Juneau or Skagway Bay. These places are in the United States, where one has to pay double for his outfit and from 30 to 35 per cent additional is added as duty, directly you step into Canada. The goldfields are in Canada, and a great mistake is made if you land else where. You sho...

General News. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 12 January 1898

General News. The farmers of the Berrigan district, not being satisfied with the prices for   wheat offered by millers, held a meet- ing and decided to erect a grain shed in the vicinity of the local railway sta- tion. It is proposed to form a com-   pany and issue shares at £50 apiece   Mr. Edward Creek, a large landowner,   who occupied the chair, said estab- lishment of a grain shed was the only trump card, the farmers had to play, as the buyers did not seem inclined to offer fair prices. Mr. E. J. Gormon,   J. P., said the miller evidently looked   upon the farmers as fair, game to play with.       There is a good old story of a gen-     eral whose death was announced in a newspaper by mistake --a circumstance which annoyed him very much. He   called on the editor and demanded that a contradiction should be inserted in the ne...

A Trooper in Trouble. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 12 January 1898

A Trooper in Trouble. The behaviour of a mounted troop-     er's horse at Flemington on Saturday   at the start of the Bagot Handicap, afforded some excitement for a time says the Argus. The trooper was sitting bolt upright in his saddle, a   model of correct riding school form, and a charger, a mighty mass of equine bone and muscle, fully 17 hands high was ruminating peacefully on the prospects of the new year, when the barrier suddenly shot up, and the field started as Mr. Fraser yelled "Go"     The trooper's charger was taken by surprise, and permitted himberself to ex-   press his emotions with much vigor. He threw himself into an attitude as ungraceful as it was undignified, with his head between his fore legs, and his tail between his hind legs. Then he began to indulge in what Mr. Micawber described as "personal contortions," and at each successive buck the as- tonished trooper, who was...

Short Story. A Tale of Alsace. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 15 January 1898

A Tale of Alsace. The carriage was going at a terrific paco. The horses, unusually excited by tlie white wine that had been pouroil over their oats, dashed through the air which whistled past their ears. Their hoofs resounded loudly on the hard frozen road. The two carriage lanterns shone in the night like the slowing eyes of .some huge prehistoric monster. This mad, furious course in the dark ness had something strange about it, something mysterious, sinister, and all the more so, perhaps, that it was taking place in the annee terrible—the terrible year when the Germans were in Alsace. The carriage, like a vessel in distress 011 a raging sea, oscillated from left to right and from right to left. When the vehicle, which had been fly ing' down the slopes of Ottrot, raced through the village, passing like ail ex press train the houses with their litlte low roofs, on which the moon cast a sil very light, the good women, suddenly frightened, made the sign of the cross with a trembling o...
