CUDAL. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 14 October 1893
CUDAL ? - Gloom was cast over our little' town last Fri day, when the sad news of Mr. George Read's death became known. Deceased, who was well known all over the district, had been puffering j from bad health for some time, and had not long returned from Sydney, where he went for a change to try and recover' health and. strength. The trip, however, done him' no good, for when he arrived back here he was worse than when he left. He continued to linger until Friday, when he breathed his last about mid-day. His remains .were interred in the Oudul cemetery, on Saturday morning. The weather out here ..has been beautiful lately, though last Sunday it was very warm.!: Towards evening, however, a heavy thunder storm, accompanied with rain, visited us. The rain which fell was very much wanted, as the crops round about here were looking rather dreary, and the ground was very parched. Wool teams are almost daily passing through the town for Borenore. ' Altogether the clip roujfc, about here is...

Sir George says he thinks he will be able to snow that' the eolony is not in such a bad state as some people imagine, thanks to the good manage ment of the Government and the strfinuous retrenchment policy which |ias beeh persued, and which is to be further carried out.

. : ., . Changing His Mind. ? ? ^ — A wealthy man who owns a country residence recently became dissatisfied with it, and determined to have another, so he instructed an auctioneer, famous for his descriptive powers, to advertise it in the. papers for private sale, but to conceal the location, telling purchasers to apply at his office. In a few days the gentleman happened to see the ad vertisement, was pleased with the account of the place and showed it to his wife, and the two concluded, that it was just what they, wanted, '.uid that they would secure it at once So he went to the office of the auctioneer and told him that the place he had advertised was such a one as he desired, and he would purchase it. Tlie auctioneer burst into a laugh, and told him that that was the description of his own house where he was then living. He read the ; advertisement again, cogitated' over the,, 'grassy slopes,' ' beautiful vistas,' ' smooth lawn/ &c, arid , cbroke out, 'Is it possible ? We...

Reid on Dibbs. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 21 October 1893
Reid on Dibbs. ^ ? — — ? ? ' When one studies the political eccentricities of the Premier,' said Mr. Reid, ' it seems impossible to account- tor iv until it is remem bered what may be the demoralis inp; effect of turning somersaults upon great political principles. The once sterling champion of free trade cannot suddenly turn his back upon his principles and his political allies, and don the uniform of the enemy, without some unhappy re tribution falling upon him. One ? can imagine his feelings of despair at the sorry investment which his apostasy has created for him. He might have been one of the honored champions of freetrade, but he has not now even the consolation of success for the. tergiversation of a lifetime. There is only one con genial sphere for him where he might still figure to great advantage, and that is in the Legislative Council.'
