CHAPTER V. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 26 May 1899
CHAPTER V. Luncheon that day was a strange and a dreary meal. Leah did not appear at all. ■ And though Anthony sat in his place and did h's best to talk cheerfully to Dolly, the ghastly white ness of his face frightened Mrs. Vydall, and at last checked the gay chatfer of the child. ' Mother, I ara sure Anthony haa one of hie bad headaches,' she said after looking at Anthony, reflectively for a moment. ' Why do you try to talk to me ? 1 do not want to he atrused when you are ill. It must be the hot sun that) has given you a head ache. Miss Chi'.cofc has one too. That is why die has not come down to lunch.' ' Dolly, don't chatter so,' raid her mother almost more sliarply than she had ever before epoken to her gir'. ' If Anthony has a headache he wants to be quiet. Run up and see if Miss CLileot will luvflEome of these grap?f.' Anthony rose at the same moment as Dolly. He did not want to be left alone with his step-mother just then. Muttering an. excuse about letters, lie left the room...

" Evil to him who evil ihinle»." THEI SAT: That the Victorian woman bailed up in » tree by wild doga was a mild experience compared with that of our representative at a recent ball. That anti-billiteB are as scarce in Cobargo ■ as green peas. That there will be lively times in our provincial Parliament after Beferendum Day. That for so important a thoroughfare the Cobargo-Bermagui road is the most neglec ted in the electorate. That the Commonwealth Bill is being ex plained from every platform in the colony, and no elector should plead ignorance of its provisions. That Lord Beauchamp will prove the most popular Governor this colony has had. That there are rumors of two impending marriages not many miles from Cobargo. That the annual cricketers' ball did not deserve the fate of abandonment. That the Band ball will be the most suc cessful ever held in the district; and That the ladies' dresses will excel any thing yet seen in Cobargo; and That Bega ladies will be to the fore in the dre...

The Chronicle. For the cause that lacks assistance, For the wrongs that need resistance, For the future in the distance, And the good that we can do. COBARGO, FRIDAY, MAY 26, 1899. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 26 May 1899
For the cause that lacks assistance, For the wrongs that need resistance, For Vf Jvture m the distance, And the good that toe can do. CobaRgo, Fbiday, Mat 26, 1899. Last weik wo dealt with the commer cial advantages of Federation, Ehowing bow in the history of all Confederations known to the world, commerce his iiicrenSed, and, as a consequence, the industrial and artisan clauses have b&lt; en provided with profitable and per in&neiit employment. This is no pos tulate, but just what will take place when Federated Australia is a going concern, unless our country is to prove the one solitary exception known to civilijution. The most hide-bound provinciulist does not attempt to deny this. He simply pretends that the Commonwealth Bill iB not the instru ment to bring this about, but in its almost every clause will produce just the oppobite effect. The shallow and rpecious statements (arguments thej are noi) used to support this wilfully false po ition will receive attenti...

CHAPTER VI. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 2 June 1899
CHAPTER VI. Next morning Lady Armstrong sat in her husband's room reading the paper bo him. Though it was a warm Eimiiy day, the fire was lighted, and the invalid's cough drawn close to it. Sir George Armstrong was not yet fifty, but ho looked an old man. His thin, bloodless face was covered by a network of Hue?, and his thick hair aud moustache were perfectly wliite. A silk coverlet was folded across hia knees, and his hands lay upon it. the thin fingers working nor vouhly as he watched his wie while she read. He was passionately devoted to her still. Not all her absorption in lierse'f, her selfish neglect of Iiiin, her reckless extravagance, had been able to destroy his love. ' Don't trouble to read any more, GJars,' he said io her, at the end of a long paragraph ; ' you are tired. And you always find the. Times dull, I know. It is not a ladies' paper.' He .added this with a smile. She Threw the paper on the table and got up, stretching her arms wearily, for she hated sickness, an...

' Yob . * I am quite serious.' ' Anthony. I cannot believe it. Tou must have misunder stood her. What reason did she give ? What * ' She. made a mistake. Mother, ~ dou't ask me any more. Let the fact be enough. She madu a mistake. She was right to tell me.' J!rs/Vydall's face had flushed with anger. 'What can she mean by treating you so, Anthony I No, let me speak,' for he had held out his hand appeal ingly. ' I won't speak unkindly of her. Unkindly ! Why, I love her ;too dearly. Anthony, you cannot have understood her. She must have taken some unhappy fancy into her . head about CJare. Oh, it must be that.'

COMMERCIAL Pigs :—More than sufficient for all require ments -were penned, and prices remained al most the same as last week:—Prime heavy baconers made from 41/6, good from 29/, medium 23/6. Prime porkers from 17/6, good from 10/6: CattleValues were lower than last week for all descriptions except primes. Best bul locks made from £7 10s, good from £6, medium from £4 15s. At the Adelaide Anglican synod Mr. J. H. Packard, in moving for the intro duction of religious instruction in State schools, according to the system in New South Wales, said a boy living on the Murray wag asked if he knew who Jesus Christ was, and replied ;—"I don't know, but perhaps father does; he knows everybody on the river. The Cromwellian time was famous for more things than the freedom en joyed by sects; it was famous for the freeing of the press, and the creation, therefore, of one of the greatest factors in civilisation!

AMERICAN V- AUSTRALIAN MAIZE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 2 June 1899
AMERICAN V- AUSTRALIAN MAIZE Mr. D. Bun, a Manning River farmer, states that New York maize is quoted as selling higher than the oolonial. The complaint previously was that American maize undersold the locally grown maize, and thereby lowered prices. Has it not been a noticeable fact that, in introducing produce into our 'markets from other countries^ tactics of this kind have been adopted until a footing has been obtained for the products, then we find these pro ducts in equal competition with what is grown locally, as to prices—and as in the case under notice, selling in ad vance. "fhiH can easily be accounted for in the fact that those who import invariably are those, persons who go under the name of commission agents, when in truth and in fact they are produce agents; and seeing there are hundreds of farmers who consign their produoe to these dealers or specula i tors, it does not require much discern ment to understand how easily the market can be manipulated by these dealers a...

That it will require all the available space in the School of Arte, additions and j all, to accommodate the dancers at the Band ball.

PRACTICAL SOCIALISM. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 2 June 1899
PRACTICAL SOCIALISM. The cheviot Estate, in Maoriland, was taken over by the Government under its Closer Settlement Scheme in 1892. The estate covered 84,000 acres, for which the State paid £2(0,220. The I only residents of Cheviot when it was resumed were four families and a few station hands. To-day there is settled there a population of over a thousand people, almost all deriving there living from the land. This was ione of the Labor Government's attempts to solve (he then pitiful unemployed question. Batches of men-married for preference were selected by lot to go and work on roads, bridges, etc,, on the, estate, and pari of th"ir wages was kept back and used to give them a life interest in ttmall holdings. The men thus got started as land occupiers, and the Government kept them employed until they were able to make their land pay The howl that went up from the Tory ranks and those who would not even name~ a'remedy for the unemployed trouble re echoed &U over the oonntry...
