LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS. Wanted a Water Supply. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 15 January 1898

LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS. Wanted a Water Supply. THE recent disastrous fires at Nar- rabri and other country places should stir the people of this town up to do something to provide means of effect- tively dealing with any outbreak which might occur here. We have a credit- able Fire Brigade, with Salvage Corps, and a well equipped engine and acces- sories. But there is no water supply. The firemen may become a most effi- cient body and may keep their engine and appliances always in readiness for any emergency that may arise; but   without a good supply of water they   can do little or nothing to check a con- flagration. The question of .providing, a water supply has been before the pub- lic of Muswellbrook for some years past; but what has been done in the matter?, nothing. The matter is one of vital im- portance to the town, and it should be the duty of the Municipal Council, as the guardian of the ratepayers property, to take such steps as may be neccssary ...

Worthy Of Consideration. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 15 January 1898

Worthy Of Consideration. The suggestion made by Mr.E C.   Brecht, at the annual meeting of the local School of Arts, that the quarterly subscription to that Institution should be reduced from 4s to 2s 6d for gentle- men, is one that should receive the new committee's early and favorable consid-   eration. If the suggested reduction were made it is almost certain that a large increase of membership would   follow, and in this way the scope and usefulness of the institution would be widened. People, who want to use the reading room chiefly, object to paying 16s per year for the privilege, more es- pecially as the charge for membership, of similar institutions in most other   northern towns does not exceed 10s 6d per annual paid in advance.

During Wednes, day night, which was very close and oppressive, rain again fell, and early on Thursday morning it came down in torrents for a few minutes, afterwards continuing steadily till 11 o'clock. That the fall has been general, though patchy, will be seen from, the appen- ded report, taken from the board at the local telegraph office, which gives   the quantity registered up to 9 a.m. on Friday morning:— Muswellbrook, 187 points ; Denman, 438 ; Merriwa, 234 ;   Cassilis, 145 ; Jerry's Plains 213 ; Ma- nilla, 193 ; Nundle, 129 ; Bendemeer, 107; W.

The Third Test Match. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 15 January 1898

The Third Test Match. The selectors, Messrs. Iredale, Trott, and Darling met at Adelaide on Wed- nesday evening, and selected the follo- wing team to meet the Englishmen in the third test match, which commenced at Adelaide on Friday. South Australia: Darling, Hill and   Jones.   Victona: Trott, Trumble, and Mc- Leod.   New South Wales: Gregory, lredale, Kelly, Howell, and Noble; emergency, Donnan. The only alteration between the above team and that which defeated, the Englishmen at Melbourne is the' substitution of Howell for McKibbin. Howells splendid performance with the ball in the Inlercolonial match against South Australia, and the com- parative failure of.McKibbin so far, is the reason for the change, which. may, or may not, prove a wise one.     ADELAIDE, Friday. The weather to-day was fine and cool. Trott won the toss from Stoddart and sent the Englishmen into the field. Darling and McLeod were the first repres...

DISTRICT NEWS. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) Rouchel. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 15 January 1898

DISTRICT NEWS. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.)       Rouchel. The local Cricketers met and de-   feated a team from Belltrees on Sat- urday last. Both teams were fairly well represented, Ebsworth and A. Camerson being respective skip-       [ers. Rouchel went in first and succeeded inputting up the excellent     score of 262 by lunch time. A Cam- eron went in first and played right through being not out for 144, Com-   piled by good cricket, marred only by one or tow chances in about two hours and a half. We believe this to be about the second highest individual's score made in the district. Ebsworth   199 against Rouchel three or four years ago being the highest. Cameron has the merit of playing a not out innings, which of course adds to tis value. W. Cameron put up a neat 55 and four others got into double figures, the innings closing for 262. Lu...

Ardglen. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 15 January 1898

Ardglen. We have had a splendid season so far, and the country around is looking well, grass and water in abundance, three inches of rain having fallen with- in the last 24 hours. Stock are in good condition and old residents say they have not seen the place look so well at this time of year for a long time past. Harvesting is all over, and the wheat is being despatched to Sydney and other places. 3s 8d a bushel on trucks is being obtained, which is considered a very fair price. There is nothing startling to report this week. A mob of 800 store bullocks passed through to-day from Rockhampton   Queensland ; Richards owner, F. M'Cormack in charge. Owing to the scarcity of feed about 600 died since   they started.   The health of the place is good. A number of children are suffering from a mild form of blight, caused I think, by the flies, which have been some- what troublesome of late.

Kayuga [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 15 January 1898

Kayuga God, apparently, has answered the sincere prayers of the Kayuga people by blessing their pasturage with bountiful rain. 130 points fell here on Wednesday last, and there is every indication of the rain continuing for days at least. This will do much good to the late corn, and be also a blessing to the dairy industry.   Obituary,—The wife of our much re- spected neighbour, Mr. C. Tucker, died here on the 5th instant, after suffer- ing for 22 years with rheumatics, for which she had been periodically at- tended by tho local doctors, both of whom have, so Mr. Tucker says, been assiduous in their attention to the poor sufferer. The bereaved ones have the sincerest sympathy of all friends and neighbors.
