Bardoc Notes. February 20. 1896. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 27 February 1896
Bardoc Notes. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) February 20, 1896. I was in error in stating last week that the Arthur mine on the Queenslander line of reef, owned by the W.A.G. Co.. was being managed by Mr Gould. The gentleman in charge is Mr J. Grouse, under whose capable management the mine is being systenmati- cally developed. A water shaft has been started and is being rapidly pushed on with, two shifts being constantly employed. A large area is being prepared for a battery site. The stone at grass, of which there is a considerable quantity, is estimated will yield a handsome return. It is stated that very good gold has been struck in the Jeweller, a 12-acre block south of the Excelsior, recently purchased by Messrs Bewick, Morning & Co. The gold was found at a depth of 45ft in a rubbly quartz formation through which a drive is now being put. A sample of stone was shown me this morning carrying fine gold, which had just been raised from the Maori Queen, and on being crushed...

The Storyteller. THE HAUXTEI) TRACK; on, TlilE LOST REEF. BY A. M. II. Mountains and guilies were a study in i k and whitc. It was black in tile gullies wlere the shadows lay, white where the moonbeams gleamed. The dismantled cottage behind us stood on a natural terrace high up the side of the range, along which ascended the Jaunted track-a track with many bends, dips, and rises in it. It was wide enough for two men to ride abreast. Opposite the gate it ended, where there was a dangerous drop of 50ft to the stones below. lCidway betwixt the broken gate and the cottage we sat upon a log and waited. Range after range rose before our eyes, and in the bright but deceptive moonlight the stillness was broken by the wailing and calling of the curlews. I shifted impatiently, drew out my watch, and glanced at my companions, who were both smoking. The night was still, .the smoke did not rise, and nature see?edl to be thinking. " It's half-past eight. now !" I said. " The .ghost is not on time...
