Hinvest, 0. Brown, P. Quinn, Silver stone, and Bergman.

RIVERINA. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 4 February 1898
RIVERINA. A visitation of flying foxes has set Jn along the Murray. Enormous flocks are devastating the orchards, ana parties are being organised to visit their dens and destroy them. Splendid corn crops are to be seen on every hand. If all goes well the average yield will be very large. j The continued dry weather is having a very bad effect on the vines throughout the Corowa district, and although only a few weeks ago proapectB were encouraging, the con tinued absence of moisture is altering the aspect. Already several varie ties are turning color before they have reached normal size. Similar reports come to hand from Albnry and other parts. At Gilmore Creek Mr. A. Davis gathered 50 bushels per acre off five acres, planted with eight bushels of Hudson's early purple straw wheat. News from Berrigan states that there is a great scarcity of water, and that prospects are even worse than was the case last summer. Water is being conveyed per rail from Jerilderie, the Government supplyin...

" LEADED!" Doctors Attention. Sundry Medicines No Benefit. In Clements Tonic. ABYISKD A TRIAL RESULT incredible. AS WELL AS EVER Mi*. ISotoerl TntooarapsoM, Petersberg, S.A. Writes on May 3rd, 1897 -I have every reason to be thankful to Cle ments Tonic, it having cured me of lead poisoning and influenza. My case was aB follows :—Sis years ago, while working at Dry Creek Smelting Works, I became what is called u leaded.'1 This occurred three times. I was very ill, aDd had doctor's at tendance and medicine, all to purpose. My wife who is a firm believer in Clements Tonic advised a trial, and the result was almoBt incredible, for after a proper course of that excellent remedy, I was as well as ever, and have not felt any of the effects of lead since. Again, while employed at Manna Hill I had a most severe attack of influenza. I again turned to my former friend, Clements Tonic, and once more it proved to be the right remedy, for I quickly regained good health, and although influenza has...
Tichbourne. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 4 February 1898
(l?KOM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) There is nothing of importance to note from this quarter, more tban the creek has been running for the last three weeks and water is plentiful all around. Through the late rain of an inch and a half, ploughing is in full swing, and the tillage this year is ex pected to be far in excess of that of the past. The usual Anniversary Day's racing came off mosfc successfully, and although it was confined to hack and pony racing yet the running was ex cellent—equally as interesting and not inferior to neighbouring big prize events on the same day. There wae a large attendance, principally of the farming commuuity, who, by all ap pearances, fully enjoyed themselvep,. and the sports passed off in a most regular an^S orderly manner. Mr. McMillan's bar was thoroughly patronised, and the dinner-table must have satisfied the bravmgs of at least two hundred. A few private matches came off on the Saturday following and the running was yery good. Eye blight is very pre...

Condobolin. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 4 February 1898
(from our own correspondent,) The forthcoming municipal election promises* no little amount of excite ment, owing to the number of nomina tions hemg in excess of the number of aldermen required. The late manager of the Commer cial Bank (Mr, Thomas) has taken his departure for Sydney, where it is understood a higher position awaits him in the head office. The residents of the town gave him a suitable send off, which was accompanied by an illuminated address. The weather is slightly warm, but the nights are cool and very pleasant. A good downfall of rain would con siderably improve matters. The country on North Condobohn, which is about to be thrown open for selection, will be eagerly sought for, as it is considered the pick of the district for wheat growing, and will be largely used as such. A couple of cases of typhoid have been reported, but both, cases are of a mild form, and the patients are re covering rapidly. During the whole of the summer the health of the dis trict has been ...

JJBy Electric Telegraph.] - SYDNEY, Thursday. " Wheat is quoted at 3s 4d to 4a 2d; chickwheat at 2a lid to 3s Id. A case of small pox was discovered on the steamer Caledonien, which has arrived at Jjargs Bay, South Aus tralia. Stoddart and Ranjitsmhji admit the superiority of the Australians over the present English team. Stoddart says another team will, for certain, come out shortly and endeavour to take back the lost laurels. The Gippsland bush-fires continue. More townships have been swept away, the settlers fighting for their lives. The fires swept on them with awful rapidity. Children were lowered into wells, and whole families took refuge in dams. Many people have gone blind from the smoke and glare. Destitution abounds everywhere. A large tire has occurred at Auck land, a number of buildings being consumed. The loss is estimated at ■ £40,000, Charles Marshall, proprietor of Bondi Aquarium, pleaded guilty to-day to permitting dancing on Sun days, .and wa8 fined £10, with costs...

(from our own correspondent.) At the election for the position of secretary, held in connection with the local P. A. and H. Associatioo, the ballot resulted in favor of Mr. N. A.

LOCAL OPTION VOTE. (TO THE EDITOR "WESTERN CHAMPION.") [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 4 February 1898
tJSM SPTfilE) TOH, (to THE EDITOR " WESTERN CHAMPION.") Sir,—Once more the ratepayers are called upon to say whether any more publican's licenses shall be granted within this municipality for the next three years. If it be decided that the present objectionable practioe of granting every application that is made to the Licensing Beneh shall continue, tl..-a that decision will obtain for the next three years. So, on the other hand, the ratepayers have it in their power to say that no addition to the present abnormally large number of licensed premises shall be made. The people at present engaged in this business, owing fco the severe com petition to which they are subjected, are by no means prosperous, and the difficulty'of making ends meet has, of course, a tendency in the direction of placing allurements in the way of those given to drinking practices. The quiet of many, parts of the munici pality is disturbed by the existence of places where men part with what ever of common sense...
Molong. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 4 February 1898
(FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Having returned to the important town of Molong once more, I will also return to my old post as the Cham pion correspondent of the Molong district. No pun intended, you know. It's my wit! Well we are to have a novelty in tbe shape of a municipal election on Saturday, and the following Rich mondo are in the field -John Black, George Packham, George Windred, and Eaton John Hamey. The bet ting is even money the miller, 6 to 4 the ex-Mayor, while the cordial maker and the boot manufacturer are at an equal price for third place. Great regret is expressed here at the untimely eud of Private Muntz, who met with a violent death on Saturday last, at Bathurst. The un fortunate young fellow was engaged to be married shortly to a local young lady. He was one of the Molong boys picked to go to England, and while at the Jubilee celebrations formed one of the Queea's bodyguard. Mr S. Pa Reynolds has definitely declined to contest the Molong seat, and the Molong, Cargo...

Our Sydney Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 4 February 1898
(PROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.') The holiday was blessed with the moat perfect weather, and all places of amusement were thronged by in numerable crowds, who appear on theta occasions a well-dressed happy-hearted people bent on enjoymg themselves thoroughly, in one or other of the beautiful nooks about the harbour. The regatta was one of the principal pastimeB provided for the day, To the uninitiated observer the iregatta > was a very slow affair. There is a large ship moored with many flags bedecking her rigging, around which clustered scores of all kinds of floating vessels—ferry steamers, steam tugs, sailing and rowing boats, &c. This large ship is known for the day as the flag-ship,, and is generally moored in the narrowest part of the harbour water-way, probably to impress upon pleasure seekers in other directions the fact of its presence, as the ordin ary harbour traffic is either badly im peded or very much dis-arranged by it» However it is a yerv pretty sight, and s...
