NEWSPAPER READING. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 January 1885

NEWSPAPER READING. If a man reads only occasionally, he must of necessity get into trouble. We say, Read the papers, read them frequently, and thus keep pace with the times. We read the other day of the ?' treachery ' of the Imperial Government in allowing Germany to take possession of one half of New Guinea while we took possession of the other half. The Brisbane Courier got fearfully warm on the subject, and in its rage advocated that the colonies should unite at once and declare their Independence. Some of our leading newspapers appear to think that public opinion in Queensland is veering round to the policy of independence, otherwise the principal Brisbane paper would not dare to write so strongly on such a subject. We ask, what has become of the loyalty of our northern neighbour ? Are we to turn our backs on our Queen — on our mother-land simply because she does not think as we do in matters of annexing territory ? Many months since, this paper censured the colony of Queensland...

THE HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 January 1885

THE HORSE. Most of us use the horse daily. How few ever take the trouble to learn, or attempt to learn, the ages of these our most frequent companions. We inquire generally when we want to buy and at no other time. None of us can guess how many horses ranging from 10 to. 15 years of age are sold as G to 7 years, if the truth were really known, we believe that horses that had done steady farm work, and kept off the metal roads from, say, four to eight or nine years, would be found far and away the best animals to run in towns on the metal roads. They would be thoroughly net. and not liable to be broken down for years. ' Youatt (the acknowledged authority on the horse) says : — At two months, the central nippers will reach natural level. .Between zna ana oru mimui ji suuuuu pair will have overtaken them. Between (- and I) months another nipper begins to come on each side of first, making 6 above and below ; and completing the colt's mouth. After this the only observable difference, un...

A moneyed selector can, in the Central division, take up 2560 acres of land as a selection ; he must reside thereon for five years. He can at the same time he selects and pays down the depbsit of 2s. per acre, take up a conditional to that selection of 2560 acres, on which, however, rent of 2d. per acre will be demanded in the Central division. Run one Pence round the whole within two years. At end of 3 years he must declare that conditions have been fulfilled. Then he must pay Is. per acre per annum for 27 years, when he can get his deeds, &c. ; or, after the five years7 residence, if other conditions have been fulfilled, he can make the whole a free hold by paying down a lump sum of 20s. per acre. If, in some district where the train is about to go, this would not be a bad ' spec.' But you must have the money first, old man.

SUSPECTED THIEVES. THE BITERS BIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 January 1885

SUSPECTED THIEVES. THE BITBES BIT. John Carroll and John Russell were separately charged in the Water Police Court, before Mr. Whittingdale Johnson, with having been found wandering in George street with intent to commit a felony. It appears that for some time Constable Murrow had ' his eye upon the prisoners ; and the other morning at about 2 o'clock, when he was in plain dress ho saw ilia prisoners wandering about lower George street. He feigned to be drunk, and sat down in the gutter. The prisoner Carroll thereupon called out to his mate. ' By ? , here's a - bug ','' meaning a drunken man. Both the prisoners rushed across the road to whore ho was sitting and at once attempted t.) pick his pocket.

PRINTERS' BLUNDERS. An amusing printers' blunder occurred some time ago in a London newspaper. It had been speaking in the highest terms of a new tenor — a rara avis of a tenor — who had delighted and entranced all hearers. The criticism was gorgeous, but it ended with ' he was sentenced to three years' penal servitude, so that society will 'for some time be freed from the inflic tion ijlliis presence. This astounding assertion was simply due to the fact that the end of a police case *$iad':4&0eii ' lifted,' and left at the bottom of the critique, tp* which it formed such an incongruous pendant. A similar extraordinary blunder occurred about the same time in one of the Scotch papers. A couple of lines of a news paragraph, announcing

THE SMALL-POX "DOO." [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 January 1885

THE SMALL-POX ' DOO.' A took but honest Teuton unwittingly created no little excitement and alarm in a tramway car not long ago. The conductor was collecting the faros in the crowded car. A foreign person, poorly dressed, handed up his money. In answer to the question, ** Do you go to u-rccnwicn t ne saia : ' I have got the small pox, doo !' ' Have you get the small-pox 7' said the aston ished conductor. ' Yes I have got de small pox, doo.' The passengers rose to their feet ; men were tugging at the bell-pull, women screamed, and the excitement was intense. ' Gome, get out of this car, you can't ride here,' said the official ; and the unfortunate German was hustled out of the car, and nearly pitched headlong on to the pavement. He recovered himself, and started for the front of the car. The driver took the car stool, and threatened to ' brain ' him it' he got on. The poor fellow kept up with the horses, I shouting : .' I'll go. Gie me my small pox,' pointing to a email two-foot squa...

As the horns played too loud, he told them repeatedly to play more softly ; and more softly they played each time. At the fourth repe*; tition, with a knowing wink at eachother, they put their instruments to their lips, but did not blow at all. The conductor nodded approvingly. ' Very good indeed. Now one shade softer, and you'll have it.' A new custom, which originated in Russia, is to be introduced into Paris society this winter.
