Condobolin. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 18 February 1898

(from our own correspondent.) The hot weather which has been in. evidence has apparently now ter minated. Rain commenced to fall slightly on Saturday night and gradually increased on Sunday, and during the night fell pretty heavily registering up-to-date about 110 points—a very welcome addition to the rain of January. This will do an immense amount of good and selectors will be busy with ploughing opera tions. A very large and enthusiastic meet* ing was held in the Royal Hall, on Saturday night, to hear the newly 1 nominated Protection candidate (Mr. A. Stewart) address the electors of this constituency. The nominee, after carefully studying the political situa tion and the present situation of the country, said he was forced to confess it is imperative in the interests of all classes that the abolished industries are in urgent need of Pro tection. Political meetings are being held throughout the electorate, and it is clearly seen that many old Free Traders will change their opinion...

Dandoloo. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 18 February 1898

(from our own correspondent.) Sunday again, and raining j a mizzling;, disagreeable kind of ram, in fact only about an inch has fallen during tlie laat three days, fche whole of which timp, it has been raining, off and on—-of the steady soaking kind. Such weather for February is remark able, inasmuch as the days have been chilly, and the nights cold. To-day (Sunday) the thermometer has fallen as low as 70deg. The general im pression was that the intense heat of the early part of last week would i culminate in rain of some kind. Jj don't doubt but that this fall will i make a nice shoot in the grass. It is I just such raiu as this that we want— j if we can only get enough of it. Plenty of stockowners have none too much grass on hand, while their sheep are in some cases very poor and weak. I notice that the average rainfall for Dandaloo for the iaet eight years is 24in 97p.ts, or an aggregate of 199 inches 76 points for the whole of the time. The greatest fall was in 1890 when over 37...

PARKES BICYCLE CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 18 February 1898

The annual meeting of the Parkes Branch League of Wheelmen was held during the past week. The secretary's (Mr. Bassan'a) report and the balance sheet were read. - The report expressed regret that the Club was not as flourishing as desirable. The roll shows a member ship of fifteen active members and twenty-six honorary members. During the year the Club held three race meetings, a concert and ball, repre senting in all an outlay of £131 14s lOd, while the total income from all sources was £132 Os 4d. The January carnival resulted in a loss of over £17. A concert was arranged to wipe this off, with the result that a nett profit of X12 6a was secured, thanks to the efforts of Miss Eva Close, in selling tickets. Though very successful, a losa of £5 10s re sulted from the May carnival. The October meeting yielded a profit of £3 10a. The balance sheet showed a balance to the credit of the Club of 5s 6d.

Forbes. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 18 February 1898

(from our own correspondent.) On resuming duties at the Lachlan College, a cricket club was formed, and although so late in the season, a good deal of enthusiam was shown. The principal, Mr. Gr. W. Ratten, was elected president, and the following pupils were elected office-bearers :— Treasurer, B. Speck; committee, E. Dawaon, E. Speck and F. Allen, with W. Tweedy as hem* sec. On Saturday night an alarm of fire was given, and on the brigade turning out, it was found that, some tyre renovator had. become ignited at Mr. W. A. E. Allen's cycle agency. No damage was done, but the way the men turned out deserves special mention. A good deal of adverse criticism has been caused by the action of the F.J.C, in refusing to rent their course oo the 17th March, and thus forcing the H.A.C.B. Society to seek fresh fields.. Nearly everyone is ready, to condemn the Club's action. A match was played, on Saturday, between Forbes and South Forbea but was not quite finished. The matches for the Rowley ...

Harvest Festival. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 18 February 1898

Harvest Festival. On Sunday last the annual Harvest Thanksgiving Services were conducted in St. George's Church The decor-* ations reflected much credit upon the ladies who assembled in goodly num bers on Saturday afternoon and even-* ing and worked very energetically, with excellent taste and discretion. We believe that in refraining from mentioning the names of the lady and gentlemen workers we shall be acting in accordance with their wishes. The decorations were certainly by far the best we have seen in the Church, The Communion rails were wreathed with graceful foliage and white roses, relieved by bunches of grapes* Over the table was a well executed motto, " Thou Orownest the year with Thy Goodness," and on each side of the chancel windows pretty crosses of fruit, and sprays of wheat and fruit. The pulpit had handsome wreaths of foliage, red and white roses, and bunches of grapes. Near the pulpit was placed a table covered with the " Union Jack," upon which were deftly arranged...
