What People Say. MRS. A. PREATT, BOWNTEEE-ST., BALMAIN. N. S. W. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 8 March 1892

What People Say. JIBS. A. PRE ATT, BOWNTEEE-ST., BALMAIN. N. S. W. WHITES :-Having been a victim to advanced liver disease {or years, and tried all the medi cal treatment the neighborhood affords, I am only too happy to bear witness to the wonder* ful results obtained by the use of Clements Tonic. I have been an inmate of the Balmain Cottage Hospital, and have had the experience and attention of every doctor in Balmoin, having been under their treatment for months, all without the slightest benefit. I suffered with chronic constipation, complicated with an anal fistula, which rendered the actions of the bowels impossible without the use of instruments, and the torturing was unbear> able. I was a martyr to headaches, always languid, tired, and excessively weak, no in clination or ability to move about, and totally unable to do any housework for the last two years. I commenced the use of Clements Tonic, and before 1 was through the eecond bottle, the effect was really marvellous. I...

ITHE BARCOO ELECTION. POLLING DAY. THE brief but mtlier sanguinary electoral campaign on the Barcoo closed last Saturday with the polling throughout the electorate.

The Ryan Com mittee were arrayed in regalia composed of broad blue scarves trimmed with gold fringe, and wearing ar...

Rhgmster's Cornen, TWO OFFERINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 8 March 1892

Jhpafeifs (tyornty TWO OFFERINGS. The day was Easter; like a dying god in pain The organ groaned aloud; The while the sunlight, chastened by the window stain, Fell on a motley crowd ; On lord and peasant, prince and parish, bore, As down the aisle they trod, As they had prospered, each according to his store. An Easter gift to God. Among them walked a lordly prince of lineage fair, With lip of scornful curl, Who laid upon the altar with a lofty air A priceless Indian pearl. There also came a woman, in whose face was seen Shame, sin, and sorrow blent; A woman of the town, a second Magdalen A harlot penitent. Who seemed the figure of incarnate sin and vice, As down the aisle she reeled, And on the altar laid, beside the pearl of price, A lily of the field ! The priest blest him who gave the pearl, said mass aa hour That God his soul might save, But with contemptuous hand swept to the ground the flower The outcast harlot gave. His piety was praised by bishop, lord, and churl; 'Twas God...

NEW SOUTH WALES. SYDNEY, Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 8 March 1892

NEW SOUTH WALES. SYDNEY, Wednesday. At the Newcastle Quarter Sessions to-day, the case against George Samuel Hadfield, late manager, and Charles Low, Charles O'Neill, and Walter Sidney, directors, of the Northumberland Company, for alleged con spiracy to defraud the shareholders, by pub lishing erroneous balance-sheets, was con cluded late last night, though the jury were not able to agree to a verdict until this morn ing, when they found Hatfield and Low guilty, but acquitted Sidney and O'Neill. In the District Court to-day, the charges against several bookmakers of using their tobacconists, shops for betting purposes, were re-heard. The cases were heara last Septem ber, when the Bench dismissed them; but the Crown being dissatisfied with the decision, obtained an order from the higher Court to review the cases. Great interest was taken in the proceedings, the court being crowded by the bookmaking fraternity. The first defendant, Jack Cohen, was fined £26, with £5 5s. costs, or two...

STOCK STATION REPORT. CHAMPION Office, Monday, 10 p.m. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 8 March 1892

STOCK STATION REPORT. CHAMPION OFFICO, Monday, 10 p.I SINCE our last report we were favored with some refreshing rain on Monday evening last as we predicted. Although it continued until Tuesday, there were no neavy showers, and very little disturbances in the elements. The tanks at the homesteads were partially filled, but the neatest good has been visible by an additional spring of grass, which will be material during the approaching winter. Some heavy rain is much needed, and from an atmospheric point of view, it is likely that we shall soon be favored with a greater downfall. The latter part of the week has been particu larly dry, the lieat during the day being exces sive, but the nights cool. In the early morn ings the atmosphere has indicated the approach of an early winter, and it is generally believed that the extreme heat of the summer is now past. THE following is the full complement of wool, &c., received at the Barcaldine railway station during the week:-100 bales...

Round Came Fire [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 8 March 1892

THE spell at Slamgumbudgery had proved a very pleasant one. Nearly a week was put in at the homestead waterhole, and Milligan especially was in his glory. He was a bit of a lady killer, and had qdite gone on a young lady staying with the Bertrams. Be felt like proposing, "bat then," he reasoned with himself, " what have I to keep a wife on? Droving's a stale game nowadays one can't earn his salt at it. No, single blessedness is best after all." And although Cupid fired his most piercing darts, the Irishman remained as adamant, and all Misg Flick's artfulness went for naught. He played tennis and croquet with her ; talked soft nothings in the gloamings-and that was all. Poor Miss Flick, and Milligan was such a nice soft-spoken gentleman loo. (She had never beard him, when things went cronk at the camp.) Old Bertram was often at the camp, and many was the yarn the company exchanged. One of the best was told by Bertram, when a diBcassion upon "crooked" cheques, crossed cheqnes, and oth...
