The Price of Meat. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 21 October 1893
The Price of Meat. _; ? ♦ ?? - ? To thb Editor: Sir,— It has frequently struck me wlut a remarkubly good thing the meut vendors of Molong have had — and now have — in retailing meat at the prices they have been charging for some consider able time past. It is very rarely ever cattle' were cheaper tlinn they are now, and have been for months, yet no reduction in the tariff for a pound of steak or a round of roast has been made by the local butchers. They are, in spite of the phenomenal bad times we , are passing through, charging their customers ? ju%..,a8 much hs they did when everything waa id a flourishing etate, and when even catftifcfcwere commanding a higher price in the market than they are uow bringing. This is not right — it is not by 'finy; means fair. If the butchers can obtain cattle at a cheaper rate they should proportionately re duce the retail price of their boef, and allow their customers to reap the benefit of a glutted market as well as themselves. Iu every other l...
ROUNDABOUT NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 21 October 1893
ROUNDABOUT NOTgS. I kmb with a great deal of interest: your ??Topic' on payment of members, which ap peared in your issue of the 7'h instant, and though I cannot agree withNall that you, flay in favour of the principle, your arguments are Bound and good;' - Theoretically, payment of members is undoubtedly correct,\for .any man who gives hia time and talents to the service of his country is entitled to remuneration, but ?omehow in practise the results,* as far as this colony is ooncetned at least, are not as satis factory as was confidently predicted by advocates of the system. It was contended that a better cUbs of representatives would be secured, inas much; aa that the door of political iifo would bo open to. men of ability, who were previously debarred from serving their country in the capacity of members, owing to straitened means. 'While there is much in this view of the.' case that commends itself, and calls for serious consider ation on our part, and while admitting there tor...

CARGO. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 21 October 1893
' V'. '.??' CARGO. x I had a look round amongst our new selectors on the Cargo gold field, and I must say that a better lot of selectors it would be hard to find. They all have in a crop of wheat and it looks vary well, considering the time it was sown, as the land was only granted when our district crops were in. The new comers are now mak ing good preparations for so wing corn, besides building themselves snug homes. The next thing T expect to see iB boundary fences — that is, if the season is favourable. Special areas in this locality are out of place, I think — not that the laud ia not good, but because it is too far from market. Land within a short distance of the railway is well worth the extra price. The residents of the district are asking our member, Dr. Roes, to try and get our suburban areas thrown open to conditional purchase, so that working men can make a home, and eventu ally become freeholders and settled residents. We doti't want any 'Labour Farm,' but give us a cha...

MANILDRA. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 21 October 1893
. MAN1LDRA. On Friday last the annual picnic iu connec tion with our Public School waB held. The children assembled at the school about 10 o'clock, and then marched to the Cricket Ground. The sight as they marched along was very pretty, as all were nicely and neatly dtessed, and each carried a little flag. By the way, the Manildra Cricket Club have picked out as pretty a piece of ground aa one could wish to see, and the members must have gone to no little expense and trouble in clearing it. But to return to the picnic. Up to noon the time* was occupied in erecting swings and climbing poles, arranging lawn tennis courts, and pre paring the dinner for the children. To see the quantity pf eatables that were provided, one would think the whole district and his wife were expected. Between 60 and 70 children formed into circle to do battle with the tea and good things. They were well looked after by the older portion of the' gathering, who, after , attending to the wants of the juveniles,...
A Terrible Affair. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 21 October 1893
IA Terrible Affair. Following is a terrible example of a jealous woman's revenge,^ taken from, a foreign exchange :—? ?*' The discarded wife of a Russian Jew. recently took fearful revenge on her husband and the woman whom he had married. Providing herself with chloroform and a sharp knife she gained entrance to the house of her husband and chloroformed him and his new wife. By the exertion of almost superhuman strength she conveyed both to seperate chairs and bound them hand arid foot. She then nailed the chairs to the floor. Waiting until her husband and the Russian wife regained con sciousness, the woman, with a ferocious laugh, took up her knife and approached them. They struggled impatiently to free them selves from their bounds. The blade glittered in the air, then sank viciously into the man's abdomen. The woman withdrew the knife and proceeded, to inflict a similar wound upon her rival. Attracted by the deathly stillness of the house the neighbours forced an entrance ne-^ mo...
The Carcoar Tragedy. THE DISTRICT CORONER THREATENED. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 21 October 1893
iThe Carcoar Tragedy. ; THE DISTRICT CORONER THREAT ENED. On Saturday night last (says the Carcoar CARoNicLB) Mr. J. L. Cohb, J. P., District Coroner j was on a visit to Mr. G. H. Kite, solicitor, of Blayney. At about 11.45 as he was retiring to rest, the window of his bedroom was raised stealthily, and a man, whose face' iras 'concealed; by a white handker?: 'chiefr appeared, and presenting a' double-barrelled gun exclaimed,; ('|Ybu are Mr. J.

Mr. Gobb had the presence of mind to extinguish the light and escaped from, the room. Next morning a cartridge and a large carving knife were discovered under the window; It is alleged that the affair was ? a practical joke ; if so, it is a kind of joke for which those who engaged in it should be brought to book. At any time such a joke would be silly and dangerous; following upon the experiences of the past fortnight...

The Premier on Temperance. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 21 October 1893
. The Premier on Temperance. ? — ? -^ ~ m Sir George Dibbs, referring to the I Liquor Traffic Local Option Bill,- I said thaft he was not opposed to lo^al option with compensation. The Government had no right to take a portion of its income from licenses to sell spirituous liquors and then declare that such a sale was illegal without granting some compensation. He himself believed it was better to abstain as much as possible from drink. Sometimes ht went a week or a fortnight without ! any drink. That was surely tem perance enough for anyone, and yet he. should be verry sorry to be a party to the passage of an Act to restrain anyone by compulsion from drinking. If temperance people were a little more liberal in their views, they would accomplish more. He quite believed . that for many people total abstinence was the best thing. But no one could be made ; temperate by Act of Parliament. Unfortunately, temperance people were not practical men. They had. not learned the. great lesson t...

The burrows were.just a few inches below the level of the plough, tie found nine in one burro wf seven in another and three in another. Three of the vermin .were a good size, while the remainder were very young. He tells iis that he and his neighbours hav.e!, often shot rabbits there, . as. many as 30 or 40 have been shot within the last twelve months. It behoves the farmers and orchardists of Canoblas to take .. prompt and strong measures to try and exterminate this pest before i they get too strong a hold. If this/1 J find of Mr. Watts' had not taken, place Cahoblas would have been almost inundated with rabbits in another1 year or so. — Grange Advo cate. ??' v ;; '?'? ' ?;::;7: ???? -:': ',:.7
