TILBA TILEA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 5 May 1899

          TILBA TILBA. (From our own correspondent)   We thought an earthquake had taken place up on the Dromedary the other morning, but later on the whole thing was explained. It appears that a gentleman connected with one of the mines up there is in the habit of having a morning bath under one of Nature's "shower". On this parti- cular morning, one of the employees in the same mine conceived the idea of indulging in his annual wash, and     proceeded forthwith to the "shower", but on arrival found some one there before him, bending down, with his back towards the intruder, enveloped in glorious lather of soap. The   sight was more than human nature could stand, particularly Jack's (we'll call him "Jack" as it's easily spelt). He quietly removing stout leather belt, he took good aim, and with a dexterous and mighty swing, brought it down whack on the—or—back of the ...

LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 5 May 1899

LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS "A beauty in the shafts, and never   known to peak," was the exclamation of one of Captain's erstwhile drivers when he learned of the staunch old horse's demise. Tons of goods have   been hauled from Bermagui by the flower, of Dunsmore's team, and the gallant old bay after 10 years of service, literally died as he had lived in harness. During the winter months the average snake who knows enough to to get in out of the cold, retires to the seclusion and warmth of hollow logs, crevices of rocks, and other convenient spots, and there, in a torpid state, happily rests oblivious of everything which transpires on this mundane sphere. This is the case with the   ordinarily intelligent reptile. But with snakes, as with other things, there are some who wish to reverse the old order and go on their own, striking out a course of conduct in direct opposition to all the traditions of snakedom from the time that Noah let loose, two by ...

CHAPTER II. Breakfast was just over. Leah and DoKy bad gone on the lawn to give the dogs' a run, jftid to p'ck some roses for the drawing-room, and Anthony stood at the open French window watching them, with a smile on his dark, hand some face. - 1 The woods were in their full summer -beauty. -June had coma, -with her deep blue skies and golden sunshine, and brighter and more radiant than the1 sunshine was life to Anthony Vydall. j The evening before Leah had' promised I to be his wife.

Leah's E ngagement. CHAPTER I. "Very well, we will not,' he an swered, lightly,;' bat I do more than forgive her, mother mine. As I said just now, I am grateful to her for throwing me over. It was an unplea sant experience) I own but none of the pain of it remains.

The passionate, unhappy love which bad darkened so many years of hiB young manhood was dead at last; some day Anthony would love again, would bring a wife home to ber. And a sud den thought flashed into Mrs. Vydall's mind which made her smile tremu lously, it had such sweetness in it. Where could he find a sweeter wife than Leab ? How happy they would be all together, if that could be. ! j Anthony found a heap of letters wait ing for him in the library.

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 12 May 1899

MISCELLANEOUS. McCaughey, thn wool king of Aus tralia, and who is said to be tha largest sheep owner in the world pays £5000 a year land tax. Good food and constant exercise are essential to growth. You know this is so with your bodi s, so it is with your intellects. Show me what you read and I can place you. Talking of good corn yields (writes a correspondent of the Western Pott) Mr. J. Nevel!, of Oarwell, last year threshed 420 bushels from 4 acres, an average of 105 bushels per acre. This year, when corn crops are mostly failures, he has 20 acres which should average 50 bushels to the acre. Mr. Nevel! is an old Hawkesburyitc. It is by the employment of machinery upon large areas that America makes her agricultural industry the envy and the object lesson of the whole world, and by following her example, with the introduction or the invention of labor saving machinery, our farmers are likely to build up their industry to a corresponding importance. It is far ming " with brains " th...

The addiesa from the Australian section waB read to him at a monster meeting at (he Town Hall, Sydney, by Com matider H. H. Booth, his s n, in these colonies, and though very extravagant in terms it manifested a very praise worthy fpirit, and certainly showed the esteem in which the General is held by the members of his wonderful org&ni.ation. Replying to this— which was the principal of a large number of messages from all parts of the world and all classes of people— General Booth gave a resume of hi* life's labors both as a clergyman and in his present position, The most eloquent part of the address was the list of figures relating to tbe number of outcasts whom the Salvation Army has succoured in its brief thirty yearB of existence.

From the Bulletin James Aealey, died at Emmaville (N.S.W.) at 81, headed the Turon rush in the early gold days and worked round Australia since. His most vivid memories were, however, of the coronation of Queen Victoria, at which function he was present in West minster 60 years ago. I E. Melb. won the premiership pen nant with the Carlton runners-up. Both teams suffered defeat in the final round, East by Richmond, and Carlton abandoning the match, against S. Melb. For Carlton, Warne's batting figures are 140 (not out), 56, 77, 402, 17,131, 120, 29, 49 ; total 1011; average 127.6. An aggregate of over a thousand runs is unprecedented in Melb. club cricket.

WERKIGUWDAH. (From a Correspondent). Though there has been nothing of startling importance to write about of late in mining matters, still the old Qulph diggings continue to provide Remunerative employment for a con siderable number of miners, both in the Alluvial and reefing departments. In the al'uvial, Messrs. McVeity Bros, have been working in North's Gully for some years. They have done a large amount of very heavy. stripping, and are obtaining satisfactory results. In Grave Yard Greek, Messrs. Anderson and party are working in the bed of the Creek which pans out well; while in themain creek aparty of about 20 chinamen have worked the old ground over a second time, and had some splendid washings. There are many other smaller claimB, the ma jority of which return fair wageB. With regard to reefing matters, a Company of Sydney gentlemen have what seams to bn a permanent thing at Bumbo.
