MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 31 March 1899
MISCELLANEOUS. Farther report* from the country on Monday told of useful rain in parts of the West. Western Australia exported 100,665 ox. of gold in February—46,000 oz nor* than in the February previous. " The Times" warns President Kroger that there is now a revulsion of feeling in France and Germany. President Kruger challenges Mr. Chamberlain to prove that he has failed to execute his promises. Over one hundred thousand bags of wheat have been despatched by team I to Culcairn from Ctormanton during the season. The Transvaal President declares that Great Britain's desire to regain the territory of the Republic Is her only real grievance. ! Some 21,000 British residents in the Transvaal have petitioned the Queen to order an inquiry, with a view to obtaining reforms. It is asserted that since President Kruger promised reforms in 1895, the position in the Transvaal has become worse, Sydney Webb regards the Australian metropolitan newspapers as with one or two exceptions superior to ...
Pretty Miss Vane. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 31 March 1899
MissVane. CHAPTER I. jfkffi&ow brother, Mr. Lynne seemed to Twee an instantaneous fancy to Lady Mary, and the whole place, for ere he had been therea couple of hours they were the best of-friends. And on this point the colonel's own wishes did not mislead him, for Francis Lynne really and truly experienced an agreeable surprise, both as regarded his hostess &lt;and her surroundings. He found Lady Mary charming be yond words, and beautiful beyond /Ideicnptioih, unselfish, unworldly, and „ " thoroughbred." It was a real plea -■^siire to chat with her, and drink in at 'the same time the curious aspect of her vurrotfadings, ' all skin ruga and blue china,' as Hilly had expressed it, but i'ie effect was indescribably charming. The panelled walls, the long corri dors, the black oak staircase, the. family portraits and miniatures filling up the empty spaces, and the valuable -old-china, and other nicknacks filling the crannies, he felt that it was the home of an artiat* and...
ADVANCES TO SETTLERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 31 March 1899
ADVANCES TO SETTLERS. Thb Parliament Imm decided on a prin ciple of relief giving to settlers that many did not contemplate. Half * million of money isto lie jijrOvided for disbursing to needy farmer* sad selec* tors in sums op to £200. This is to be secured on the holdings of the bor rowers, for the money is wit An advanoe and must be repaid jrith 4 per cent, interest. The Stats has virtually be* come a huge money lender, and it may safely be predicted will have plenty of constituents. Though not actually establishing a State bank, the Govern* ment is adopting one of the principles of banking as it has been conducted in this colony. Whether the Crown, through its responsible Board, will succeed as mortgagee* of lauded estate is a problem yet to be solved. There ere two points on which the dispensing Board mut exeroiie the utmost dis cretion : firit, that the securities will even under the influences of deprecia* tion and depression, be worth the id* vances with intereit.

LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 31 March 1899
LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS Thb public thoroughly realise the great convenience of the new mail arrangement!, for in addition to the great boon of an early delivery, more time is available for the transaction of money order, savings bank and other general business. We are glad to hear that Mr. Win. Thompson's child, which was brought to town about • fortnight ago in order to be under the immediate care of Dr. Meeke has bo far recovered that it is now considered out of danger. Thb Bishop of Goulburn, Dr. Chalmers, in a recent letter to the Rev. O. Soares says " I do not leave Goulburn till April 26th, probably at Cobargo for Sunday May 14th, cannot fix precise date yet." The elderly man, Mr. William Watt, who some time ago was .brought from Beloura in a very serious state of health, has so far recovered that he is able to return to his usual occupation.

The Chronicle. For the cause that lacks assistance, For the wrongs that need ressistance, For the future in the distance, And the good that we can do. COBARGO, FRIDAY, MARCH 31, 1899. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 31 March 1899
®pC|r0triA. For tie cause that lacks Quittance, For the wrong* Hat need remittance, For til* fidwe tit the distance, And tie good tkat we can do. Cobaroo, Fridat, March 31, 1899. During the last! decade or so, the Mail Service between Sydney and Cobsrgo baa been improved to such an extent that thla district has reason for gratulation on the regularity with which the mails have been delivered. Every resident recognises thiB. But in the Postal as in other great State Departments the policy should ever be one of progress; indeed, this spirit dominates the whole f&brio of our commercial and industrial economy. The people of this town and district have long since claimed that they were entitled to a nine o'clock deliveiy of the Sydney mail, and the know ledge of this, no doubt, prompted the Gobargo Progress Committee to move in the matter. That body pointed out that the northern mail lay in the Uoruya office about ten hours, and suggested that it might be despatched without unnec...
CHAPTER IV. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 7 April 1899
CHAPTER IV. ' Pkabl, my darling, you will see after tbe table yourself, won't you,' Baid Lady Mary, a trifle eagerly. 'The lamps, the flowers, and take care that the glass and silver are bright. Those little details are really more importans than the actual viands.' 'Everything shall be perfect,' re plied Pearl, promptly. • It always is, you know-dear, as- far *e ornamental display goes, though often enough the dinner itself is scant,' with a rueful laugh. 'I do so like Mr. Lynne/ said Lady Mary, lying back on her couch, with a contented Bigh. ' If I had had a son I should have liked one of precisely the same stamp. It is strange, too,' with a laugh, ' because aB a rule (be tween ourselves, Pearl) I never care for your father's friends, but, of course, this one is jour friend also, and I al ways take a fancy to those, don't IV " Generally," replied the girl, care lessly, " but Mr. Lynne is decidedly papa's friend, not mine. For my part I am surprised that be thinks it worth while to...

Why on earth didn't you tell me Pearl V She shrugged her shoulders depre catingly. ' Oh, really,' she replied, in theBame low tdhe; 1 need you ask that ? The man is insufferable even here. I couldn't stand a whole day of' him yon know—bores me to death.' Captain Treherne glanced at ier with both doubt and relief on his face. 'He's a handsome fellow,' he said, slowly, * and clever, not to say rich. Most people find his society unusually Attractive. I've never heard liim called a1 bore* before.' ' Yet you bate him,' she laughed, showing two white even rows of pearls. ' I acknowledge its,* he replied, frankly.
