Slaves of the Sawdust [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 22 April 1899
Slaves of the Sawdust, Every now and again the public are startled by alleged cruelties practised on the more youthful members of circus troupes in their endeavours to accomplish feats that will satisfy the too exacting demands of their audiences, and fill the coffers of the proprie- tors. Hence the adoption by certain alarm- ists of the above title. Miss Dick, though not a slave to sawdust, bhts flhe is wpll finmiiiintprl with if-H tnRte. J he young lady resides at Purrainatta Kond; Auburn, Sydney, and for nearly seren years suffered from aniemia and indigestion, to gether with fearful headaches. Miss Dick aaid to a roporter : ' I was sixteen years of age when I first fell ill. My appetite deserted me. Even the sight of some special dainty would fill me with disgust, and, as for hs taste went, merely suggests eawdust: A fair night's sleep was a luxury beyond my reach. My headaches were a daily dread, so severe were the at tacks, reducing me to a state of utter list less and despair...

MINING. Mr Munday, Inspector for Mr T. H. Kelly, was in this district last week. The manager of the Mount Drysdale Proprietary G.M.S. reports, April 15 : — Since last report have sunk a fur- ther depth of 7ft from the brace, mak- ing a total depth of 25ft ; have passed through mud floor and body of ore, continuing with depth, and giving good prospects. At a meeting of shareholders held at Drysdale last week Mr E. Macpherson was appoin- ted working manager, Mr J. M. Scott, of Cobar, Secretary, and Mr Phillips, of Cobar, Treasurer. It was resolved to sink a shaft a depth of 50ft and drive west, where good gold is known to have gone out of the shaft. Mr J. M. Scott, mining broker, Co- bar, reports : — The only feature in the share market worth noting is an ad- vance on Cobar Chesneys, buyers offering 6s 6d for paids and 2s 6d for contribs., sellers wide. Occidentals were offered in good parcels at lower limits, without leading t0 business. Westerns maintained their late ad- vance and a...

Welcome Social. TO REV. AND MRS GRAHAM. There was a large gathering at the wel- come social tendered to the Rev A. and Mrs Graham in the Wesleyan Church on Tuesday evening ast. Mr D. Simon occupied the chair, and the meeting opened with a hymn and a prayer. Mr Simon said it was only a few days previous that they had said farewell to the Rev F.J. Branch and this welcome social had been got up rather hurriedly. He welcomed the Rev and Mrs Graham in our midst, and expressed the wish that their stay with us would be a pleasant one in every sense of the word.

Gruesome Gatton. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 22 April 1899
Gruesome Gatton. The Gatton horror bids fair to add to the already long list of unpunished murders which shame the colony's record. One of the most surprising things about the Gatton outrages is the apathy shown by the Murphy family to throw any light upon the tragedy. In the district it is generally supposed that the culprit or culprits could be arrested at any time, but no one seems inclined to take any active steps in the matter. Even the black trackers are disgusted with what has been done, and sulkily have given up the pursuit, flatly declaring that they have been run round on fools' errands, while the real offenders stood by laughing at their efforts. The whole &nbsp; business points to a most deplorable &nbsp; state of life in the Gatton district (and many others also), and yet we go on spending thousands of pounds every year playing at converting the slant- eyed sinners of Moki-Tolo, and the "pore little heathens" of Borrioboola- &nbsp; Gha!
A Serious Charge. Before Mr Brown, P.M., & Mr Mathews, J.P. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 22 April 1899
A Serious Charge. Before MrBrown, P.M., & Mr Mathews, J.P. On Tuesday last an important case in con- nection with ill-using a State child was heard in the local Police Court. Mrs Fallick was charged with ill-using Mattie Allbutt, a child apprenticed from the State Children's Relief Department. Mr William Richard Ewry, senior inspector of the department, appeared to prosecute, re- taining Mr W. J. Hogan. Defendant pleaded guilty to the charge, but not guilty to the kicking, saying that she was justified owing to the filthy and dirty habits of the child. Mr Hogan said the plea was a very in- definite one. Mr Brown : It is virtually a plea of not guilty. Mr Hogan reviewed the case, mentioned several alleged assaults as far back as twelve months ; also stated that on the 11th instant the girl ran away from the house, and found herself at Mrs Page's, at the Four Mile. Mrs Page saw some bruises on the child's body, and, in consequence of what the girl said, conveyed her to the pol...

Turtles in the Bahamas. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 29 April 1899
Turtles in the Bahamas. Tho shallow seas around tho Bahama Islands abound with turtles, and turtle Bhell valued locally at £5,600 was exported last year from the colony. The edible turtle is known as the 'green' ono, and is also plentiful in tliesn waters. When small ones are caught, they are .doposited .in large ponds known as 'crawls,' where, after having beon brandod with their owner's mark, they aro loft to feed upon a particular kind of marine grass until they have attained a marketable size. Turtle meat sells in tho local markets at threepence per lb. of live weight, and it is probable that an enterprise for the preparation of a concentrated form of turtlo soup, suoh as has recently beon established in Jamaica, would prove a profitable undertaking.

A New Way of Getting Husbands. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 29 April 1899
A New Way of Getting Husbands. Every Siameso girl who readies a certain age without marrying is tickotcd and labelled, and placed in a privileged class, under the special care of tho King, who binds himself to find a husband for them all. His method is delightfully staple. A prisoner inanyof theainmo-o gaols may gain his pardon and release by marrying one of the ineligible olasa. Whether he is already married or not is of no great consequence, for in Siam it is unnecessary to.draw the line at one wife.
