No title [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 15 May 1877

We take a deep interest in Free Public Libraries wherever they are established ; . and this must be our excuse for referring to an agitation now going on amongst our neighbours of Wagga Wagga. A Free Public Library has been established there some time : but its usefulness is very much contracted, by its being non circulating ; and we learn from a corre spondent that the Municipal Council has been asked to apply to the Minister for Justice for permis^om to lend the works out. It is true that the Act under which these libraries are| established, in the letter, ia against circulation ; but in its spirit' .it certainly is not. It would be a misnomer to call such a thing as a non circulating library public in the sense' intended— viz., national ; as it would' be only available for reference by those livingin its immediate neighbourhood. It should be sufficient for our Wagga friends to , know that Free Publi-? Libraries in many other places that might be named (all those on the coast, for...

LOCAL GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 15 May 1877

LOCAL GOSSIP. By New Chum. Now that a, Vigilance Committee has been formed, and, according to general opinion, composed of a good team, we may expect to see many local requirements brought under their notice and prop erly dealt with. No doubt they will have at the commencement a somewhat up-hill game to play, and in their youthful innocence, setting, out with a determination— as I trust they are — to deal with local matters oi importance that have never before been properly handled, too much should , not be expected of them ; nevertheless an unprejudiced and careful watch should be set upon them to see that they shirk nothing, whether of a trivial or impor tant nature, that is calculated to benefit the town. It is thought by some that a mistake has been made in the election of these officers, and I am of opinion there are just grounds for sucli a surmise. This committee has been duly elected by the public; but for how long? Does their term of office expire at the end of the year, th...

TERRIBLE PANIC IN A CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 15 May 1877

TERRIBLE PANIC IN A CHURCH. I A dreadful disaster occurred on the even ing of the 8th instant, at the Church of St. Francis Xavier, in* Sixteenth-street, New York, furnishing another sad example of the influence of terror on a large gathering. During the mission services, a' trivial acci dent, having in itself no relationship what ever to 'clanger, converted a devout and attentive congregation , into a shrieking, struggling, irantic mob, the mdividuality ox whose members was merged into a mighty force that baffled all attenjfits at control. The church was crowed to overflowing-^, at least twenty-five hundred women and girls being present. The close of the mis sion was given to the female portion of the congregation. The Rev. Father Langeake, S. J., was preaching. The intense heat and over-crowded state of the church had the effect of causing a woman in the west gal lery tofaint. 'When sinking in the swoon she^ cried out, at this alarming sound one excitable person in the church scre...

SHEEP FOR WOOL AND CARCASE. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 15 May 1877

SHEEP FOR WOOL AND CARCASE. Mb. R. M'Neve writes as follows to the Australasian : — Sir, — I refer in this letter to merino sheep, the class with which I am ac quainted. Why merino — the smallest in size, and the most unprofitable of any sheep in the present day — are so extensively bred ? ii ? ? ? ? ? 1 ? ji ? in I/neat* is utfua-usw i/iitry uru u hardy breed, Capable of thriving on dry fodder, on which the Lincoln, Cotswold, and other large-famed sheep have, after many trials, been found incapable of ex isting. Moreover, the merino are a strong constitutional sheep — much more so than other classes — ind can be reared and brought to perfection e,ven . when, driven about by shepherds and yarded during the dark ; so that they have in wintertime often but 10 hours feeding time out of 24.

THE COST OF A TRAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 15 May 1877

THE COST OE A TRAIN. At a time when the first open court of law was established in Russia,* a lady dressed with the utmost elegance, was walking on the Moscow promenade, lean ing on her husband's arm, and letting the long train of her rich dress sweep, the dust and dirt of the street. A young officer, coming hastily from a side street, was so careless as to catch one of his -spurs in the- lady's train, and in an instant a great piece was torn out of the frail but costly material of the dress. ' I beg a thousand pardons, madam, '. said he, with a polite bow, and then was about, passing on, when he was detained by the lady's husband. ' You have insulted my wife.' ' N othing was further from my inten tion,' sir. - Your wife,ws long dress is to blame for the accident, which I sincerely regret, and I beg: you once more to re ceive my apologies for any carelessness on my part.

PARLIAMENT. Tuesday, May 8. In the Assembly : Mr. Driver, in answer to Mr. M'Elhono, said there was nothing to prevent lessees of runs erecting improvements on lands re served from sale. They had no right to purchase such land by virtue of improve ments. Mr. Driver, in answer to Mr. M'Elhone, said that Roderick King, a selector near Molong, was informed that a portion of his selection of 160 acres on a reserve would be dealt with by special legislation. The land was not alienated under clause 31 of the Act, but an application from the lessee of prior date to certain selections of King was now held over for the investigation, in so far as it did not interfere with original selections above mentioned. No deeds would be issued pending the investigation. Mr. Driver, in reply to Mr. M'Elhone, said it was known that several applications had been received from Sir John O'Shanassy to purchase portions of improved land on the Moira run, near Moama ; but there was no report yet from the surve...
