i |he Infera Vita sine Merit mon ext. BARCALDINE. TUESDAY, MARCH 29,1892. WHATEVER maj be said in favor or in condemnation of the manifesto issued by Sir S. AV. GRIFFITH on the kanaka question, it may be taken for granted that the Press generally throughout the colony ''aa given what it believes to be the opinions of the majority of the people in the various parts of the country. Some oppose discussion of any kind on the subject ; others are in favor of re-opening the whole ques tion; others consider it highly desir able that the sugar planters should be supplied with kanakas as required, I white a fourth section demand that no legislation in this direction should be brought before Parliament until the constituencies aro consulted at the impending general election. This is the position we feel bound to take up. "We do not intend to discuss the ques tion of whether it would be advisable in the interests of the sugar industry that the country should revert to the previous system of re...

Tile odour from the place ia continuous and quite bad enough, but when the breeze is from rjie south unfortunate neighbors aie sick while it. lasts.

Notes and Comments. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 29 March 1892
-i^S£**-v-v-V"-«--V . gofos and dfomrotínís. IN the Liverpool Plains district last week 1200 prime sheep were sold far £78, or at about ls. 3d. per bead. THE candidature of Mr. J. W. Strawson, tbe working man's representative Bulimba, is not to be supported by tbe A. L. F. in Brisbane. Tbat is to say that although Mr. Strawson is a working man, and holds democratic political views, he has not been chosen by Messrs. Casey and Co., and, there fore, is not acknowledged by the new uniou istic conclave in Brisbane. IT is said that carrier Young is the coming man for the Mitchell electorate. He certainly did the lion's share of the touting work in Barcaldine, and completely knocked the stuffing out of carrier Kemp in this direc tion ; but Longreach people consider that Mr. A. J. Martin is the cleverest man in the democratic line ; as for Mr. James Crombie! of course he is completely ont of it. INFORMATION was received here laßt month from Charleville that cattle belonging to the owner of ...

Rhomster's Corner. A FUNNY WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 29 March 1892
A FUNNY WORLD. THIS world is very funny, For no matter how much money Man is earning, he will spend it and be hard up all the time ; To his utmost he is straining To catch up without attaining, Till he makes Ids life a burden when it should bc bliss sublime. He who earns a thousand merely Thinks two thousand yearly Would be just the figure to make happiness complete ; But his income when it doubles Only multiplies Iiis troubles, l'or his outgo then increasing makes his both ends worse to meet. It is run in debt and borrow Flush to-day and broke to-morrow, Financiering every way to postpone the day of doom ; Spending money ere he makes it, And then wondering what takes it, Till he, giving up the riddle, looks for rest within the tomb. Oh, this world is very funny To the average man Ids money Doesn't quite pay for tho dancing that he does before he should ; And he kills himself by trying Just a little higher flying Titan is suited to bis pocket and lus own eter nal good.

Now you don't drink." " No, I don't drink," echoed Joshua, look ing in an expressionless way at Rimpler, and wondering what he was driving at. "Well, don't you know by this time," went on Mr. Rimpler, " that money can do more than any mortal thing? Some fools accumulate their money nntil they are up to their neck in it ; and they die and it all goes to someone else. My theory is that a man who does that is a fool.

I CHAPTER LX.-KEZIAH SPEAKS. " Mamma," said Lucy Beredith, looking up from some work she'was doing, " I can't be quite happy, for Eupert looks so sad. I thought at least we should be happy to-day, when we are to be married to-morrow." Mrs. Beredith held np her white fat hands deprecatingly. "Those are only morbid fancies.

Bat we got on all right, and we were the best of friends, though it wasn't exactly a love match." And her eyelids trembled a little, and ber ample bosom heaved. " But, you see papa bad never loved any body but you." They were now standing in Lucy's room, which was in a pretty disorder. Not a chair, not a table, bat held its treasure of beautiful garments made for this important event. There were far more than were necessary, but as a child has never too many dresses for its doll, so the mother can never get enough dresses for her daughte...

LETTER TO THE EDITOR, ME. MURRAY'S ADDRESS. TO TUE EDITOR. Sin,-With reference to a quotation from Mr. Murray's speech at Westwood, which appeared in your last issue, I. as one of the Alice River settlers, would like to ask the bon. member for Normanby how in the name of goodness be expects to see any cash re turns out of land such os this was since the thc end of last June. Even with the super human abilities of Mr. Murray, who has stuck in fifteen months since that date, the number of men who came nut here could hardly bc expected to clear and substantially fence thc 250 acres that contain the im provements, and at thc same time pay wages by bringing forward produce in an unfavor able season, and with no means of counter acting same. Without accepting Mr. Mur ray's suggested motive as the one that set us going, I must point out in justice to our selves that wo bad every reason to believe that the Government (owners of the land and all improvements on it), would grant ns assistance...
