Water Difficulty. THE MAYOR INTERVIEWED. PRESENT SUPPLY UNFIT FOR USE. WADE'S SCHEME ADOPTED. HOW MATTERS STAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 6 May 1899

Water Difficulty. PRESENT SUPPLY UNFIT FOR USE. WADE'S SCHEME ADOPTED. There was almost a full board of aldermen at the special meeting of the Cobar Municipal Council called for Monday evening to deal with the water question. Mr Mayor Snelson presided, and there were present Aldermen Hunt, Hogan, James, Duffy, Bailey, Musgrove, andKinkead. Ald. Morrison was unavoidably absent owing to the fact that he was away executing the duties of acting coroner. The first item of correspondence read was a letter from the Board of Health conveying the information that the water was not fit for human consumption in its present state, al- though it might be made so by effici- ent filtration. The following telegram from the Railway Commissioners to the Mayor was received on Monday : — Regret cannot undertake to supply Council with water anywhere convenient. Suggest you should endeavor to arrange with Nyngan Council for supply. Will haul from Nyngan to Cobar at one penny per ton per mi!e. Waiting fur...

Repentance. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 6 May 1899

Repentance. A Molong paper tells this story : — Away out in the salt bush near Dan daloo there resided a family consisting of a old man of the name of Brown and his three sons, all of whom had laughed to scorn the advice and en treaties of a pious though very eccen tric minister who resided in the same district. It happened that one of the boys was bitten by a death adder and not expected to live, when the minis   ter was sent for in great haste. On his arrival he found the young man very penitent and anxious to be prayed with. The minister, calling on the family, knelt down and prayed in this wise : ' O Lord! we thank thee for   snakes. We thank thee because a snake has bitten Jim. We pray thee send a snake to bite John ; send one to bite Bill ; send one to bite Sam ; and, O Lord, send the biggest kind of snake to bite the old man, for nothing but snakes will ever bring the Brown family to repentance.'

TWELFTH NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 13 May 1899

TWELFTH NIGHT. A capricieus fate seems U- havo governed the destines of eccler-iaslionl and semi-ecolesiastical festivals. A few, liko Easter aud Christmas, are hardy perennials, nnd aro observed with unfailing regularity, and, one might almDBt add, with growing and widening interest; for Christ masis conquering ovm Scotltud, and relegating Now Year's Day to secondary ptaco in popular estimation. Very many feasts have ceased to be observed at all, and even their'namps are for gotten. Others are merelyaname. Yet others again, after maintaining a vigorous existeoco for centuries, have suddenly, within quito receut times, undergone rapid decay, and have shrunk to the merest shadow of their former popularity. Tbo most conspicuous instances of decay ot this kind are to be seen in the almost complete neglect into which thu diy of Saint Valentine has fallen, and in the marked decline of special observance of Twelfth Night Twelfth Day and Night, in the old times, when the festival of Yule l...

DEATH TO MICROBES. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 13 May 1899

DEATH TOMICROBES. It is a well-known fact that paper monty is liable to transfer bacteria from one person to another. It was also supposed that colas, which are more in circulation than notes, might act as similar agents. In reality, coins act, so to speak, as antiseptics to bacteria or microbes, the fact being that these microscopic organisms have but a very sbsrt lease of life while on metals. The destroying influences of metals iucrease with their temperature. At a temperature ef 95 to 100 degs. Fahrenheit, which is 'common in the pockets where money is carried, the destruction of microbes occurs I within three hours.— '? Vienna Medical Gazette.'
