Cool Roberts sighed as he spoke, and stretching out his legs, bent a pen sive gaze upon the strip of red silk sock displayed between the edge of his irreproachable trousers and his still more irreproachable shoe. He was a handsome man, and he looked his baptismal name of Aubrey Tollemache to the life, which is more than can be said for all gentlemen who bear high sounding titles. His intimates, how ever, invariably spoke of him behind his back as ' Cool Roberts '' — a title invented for him by Celestine Leroy, in acknowledgment of the in...

The Horse and the Pigeon. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 1 February 1898
The Horse and the Pigeon. Thus a correspondent from S. Woodbum : 'On Friday, last, Mr. McPheo's racehorse Attila pas Bed through Woodbum, en route for the metro polis, via the Clarence River. On arriving at the half-way hotel, he was fed and after staying a considerable time, proceeded on his way. A few hours later a blue pigeon was noticed to fly to tho stables where the horae was fed, and then to the ground, afterwards flying on in the direc tion of the Clarence. On overtaking the horse it was at once rocognised by the trainer to be one of Mr, McPhee's pigeons, which frequented Attila'8. stable at Btoadwater, and must have missed the horse for some time, and then pro ceeded to catch him. The bird kept in com pany, with the horse to Chatsworth, where he ?was. caught by Mr. McPhee and taken on to Sydney as ?* stable companion. — K. It. Heualb.

Ho did nob think it f.iir that he should work, even Without wages, for a day or two harvesting, aa a tecomponBO for the rations he got, because 'tho Government took the land from us, and they must keep us.' He still declined to accept 3a a day. ?

The Electorate Team. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 1 February 1898
The Electorate Team. Sir, —I have been instructed by a few cricket enthusiasts to object to the electorate team. Is seema to me that too much 'Rockejism' has always been brought to bear in these selections. I am a member of ono of the clubs at the Heads, Now I hear that five Macleanites have been seleoted and one member from Angowrie put in. How could any sane person argue that this is fair, when you consider that Angowrie is leading in the cup competition, having beaten Maclean recently 1 Surely we are also entitled to five men, but we would have been perfectly satisfied with three. — Yours, etc., ^ ?

The Disposal of Produce. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 1 February 1898
The Disposal of Produce. The disabilities under which tho producers of the colony labor in regard to tho disposal of thoir produco by tho commission agoucy system was one of tho subjects that engaged the at tontion of tho Olaronco Farmer's Union on its initiation 18 months ago. Practically no pro gross has boon inado in this direction, although a great doal of tiaio has beon wasted in dealing with tho proposals which were put forward as tho basis of au improvement in tho relations botweon prod ucor and agont. Theso proposals were calculated to bo productive of great ad vantages to tho producor without any risk or liability on his part. On such a basis, losses that frequently occur under the present happy go-lucky methods which tho farmer trusts to for the disposal of his produco would be guarded against. Next to co-oporation on a sound basis the proposals put forward by tho Union wero probably tho bost that could be entertained with any prospect of a successful issue. At tho Council...

A Successful Creamery. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 1 February 1898
A Successful Creamery. We have frequently urged upon the farmers the advantages of co-operation in industrial enter pnzes in which thoy were concerned. However strong tho arguments wo wore ablo to adduce, or however sound tho theory on which they wore based, they sink into insignificance bosido the facts disclosed by tho two months' operations of tho Palmor's Island Dairy Company. That Company paid its suppliers on the same basis as the F. F. aud I. Co., viz 2\ por gallon on a 3'J test, and tho profits hereinafter referred to are ovor and abovo those— if any — that may after wards bo payablo under tho export scheme, and which tho P. I. Dairy Co. will share on tho same basis as other creameries. After paying this amount, and making liberal provision for interest on capital and- doprociation, tho two months' operations resulted in a surplus of £17 Os 2d. This sum would onable an additional paymont of ?£ of a ponny por gullon to bo umdo to suppliers, and still leave [a small surplus. J...

Facts' and Fancies. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 1 February 1898
Facts' and Fancies. [By Silver Coin]. I am always pleased to find that my humble offorta for tho regeneration of mankind and tho inculca tion of moral principles are appreciated by tho clergy. Somo timo ago I referred to tho large con ftmnption of liquor at Broome's Head. I did! not, in sinuate that any of the sojournors thoro drank too much, or that tho standard of morality was lowered by tho indulgence in liquor on tho part of visitors at that salubrius marino resort. But Broomo's Head is ovidontly in a protty bad state from a religious point of view. At a roligious meoting last week in Maclean a clergyman held it up as an example of the low moral standard which prevails outside tho sphere of roligious influence. People went out thoro, ho said, to drink whiskey and wine, who would not do it Maclean, whero thoro was a moral standard of life. I have ofteu wondored what induced people to fore go tho comforts of their homes aud undertake tho hardaliips and risks of a trip to the beach...
