KARGOOLNAH DIVISIONAL BOARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 5 April 1892

KARUOOLNAH DIVISIOXAL BOARD C l-O - . , I MESSES, rarnen, unairraan ot the Divisional Board, with Messrs. Cronin and James, left. Barcaldine on Sunday to attend the meeting of the Divisional Boartl at, ttlackall yesterday. The cost, of coach fares and expenses generally amounts to £20 a trip, which our representa tives have to pav out of their own pockets and the result of their visit to Blackall is to set, a vote of about, the same amount to patch up roadways about the town. And for this, in stead of receiving the thanks of the persons who use the roads, thev generally meet with abuse. We may t herefore expect that these gentlemen will not, again seek reelection on the Board, but will allow the Carriers Onion to have the honor and profit. It is only right that the working-man should take his share in the responsibilities of local government., and we hope at the next election to see some of our patriotic earners nominated to < he vacan cies on the Divisional Hoard.

THE BARCALDINE W00W-SC0URING WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 5 April 1892

THE BARCALDINE W00W5C0URING WORKS. THE delay in shearing throughout the dis trict has had its effects upon the wool-scouring district keeping the -worts closed for the first two months in the year. This, however, is not an unmixed evil as {ar as the proprietor is con cerned, for it has enabled him to overhaul the machinery and get, everything ready for the constant stream of work which mav be ex pected to come in during the remainder of the year. The familiar sound of the big whistle on Wednesday morning awoke (Bhe town before daylight, and work has been going on daily since then. The wool is from Barcaldine sta tion, which is sending this year ahout 100 tons for scouring. We may mention in this connec tion that the soap turned out at the same establishment is giving great satisfaction to consumers, and " M'Loughlan's ***" has al ready created a name for itself as superior to the Eockbamptin soap, which many people think has considerably deteriorated in qualify during the last few y...

JUNDAH JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 5 April 1892

JUNDAH JOTTINGS. A correspondent at Jundali writes Marcli 23 ushered in a most enjovable change of wea ther, tlie broiling dare .mtt terribly close nights of t)i8 past four months giving "way to more seasonable temperature. With the change we had in the town about 16 points of rain, but in places only a few miles from us the fall was much heavier ; and from what I hear of the downpour above Stonelienge. I fear loading for here will be much delayed. There is yet abundance of feed here, but of course it is now getting very dry, and we are hoping for a few inches of rain to start the winter grass, and to replenish our well-nigh empty domestic water tanks. As yet we see very little to remind us that we are on one of the most important stock routes in the island, though some few drovers' plants have passed through on their way out west and north. Mr. H. Loman, the well-known drover, who, in partnersliip with his brother, has a store here, is due back in a few days from his honeymoon; and...

The Premier's Speech at Maryborough, [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 5 April 1892

The Premier's Speech at Maryborough, AT the banquet given to Sir P. V. Griffith at Maryborough last week, the Premier in the course of bis speech said " It was eighteen years since he first had the honor to hold office as a Minister of the Croxvn, and he had been in a more or less prominent position ever since. If people who had been in the coloay all that time had not formed an idea of what kind of man he was he was sorry. It appeared to him that criticism now came mostly from those who had recently arrived in the colony. (Cheers.) It was perfectly marvellous to him to see those gentlemen who had only been a few months, or at the most two or three years, in the colony, putting themselves forward to teach the old colonists their busi ness. That was not surprising from one point of view, but it was surprising from another point of view to see so many of the people allowing themselves to be led away by these new teachers. (Cheers.) Who were the most likely to have the welfare of the c...

WHO WILL DO THE COOKING? [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 5 April 1892

WHO WILL DO THE COOKING ? THIS comes to us from beyond the Barcoo Jimmy, the blackboy. was a general favourite at the head-station, and being particularly fond of his "grub," he had especially courted and succeeded in thinning the good feelings of the married couple in the kitchen, who, besides providing for his bodily wants, hod also under taken on their own responsibility to administer to the requirements of his immortal soul. They had, consequently, amongst other things, taught him that when he died he would, the same as everybody else, go up above to the " big fellow boss," if he behaved himself here down below. This evidently puzzled Jimmy, and after care fully weighing the advantages and disadvan tages of such a proceeding, he one morning .went to the manager, overseer, jackeroo, et<\, who were all standing outside the store, r'id asked each of them, with a very grave ia \ pointing up towards the heavens abovet "You go up along'a big fellow boss when you die ?"

GOSSIP FROM MOTTABURRA. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 5 April 1892

GOSSIP FROM MOTTABDRRA. 1 A CORRESPONDENT at Muttaburra sends us a, few items of gossip, which may perhaps inter «st some of our subscribers on the Lands borough. Mr. Charles Bennett and Miss Fanny Blown were wedded on the 24th March, and there was a jollification in honor of tlio event at Mr. 'Murphy's hotel. As a result of tho festivity it is surmised that a strike ensued among some of the lady helps at a leading hotel in. Muttaburra. The mistress of the house was rather nonplussed, for after finish ing up the week's washing and scrubbing the bedrooms and laying the dinner table, there was no one to wait upon the boarders. For tunately for the credit of the house a retired butler was bunted up, and when the young men came into dinner they were surprised at being waited upon by a dignified old gentle mOrt in faultless broadcloth, who looked more like a bishop than a waiter. Our correspond ent does not say whether the girls returned to their allegiance and condescended to continue o...

Round the Camp Fire [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 5 April 1892

THE monkeys were safely yarded for the night just inside a patch of thick scrub, and tired out our droving friends were taking a well-earned spell. The day bad been a ter rible trying one. Early morning, burnt country bad been met with ; the ravaged area appeared to be of considerable extent, for Milligan, who went out to reconnoitre, said there was1 nothing for it but to go through it, and make for Deadman's Scrub, ten miles away, instead of camping at Wirra, where there used to be good water, only six miles distant. The forced march all day across burnt plains, without a bit of green, was fearful, and were it not for Wirra, where the stock got a drink, the losses must have been great. A queer place Wirra-it was merely a mud spring, around which a coarse grass grew, but the water was sweet and pure. At Deadman's the ravages of the fire bad been stayed by a small gully, which appeared to embrace the timber like a bow in fact the scrub was a pocket, as it were A nice picking for the ...

* gtotca and (tonmtte. PEOPLE say that the Longreach Jockcy Club must be a financial success since Mr. J. Gould has consented to be honorary treasurer. DIAMONDS, Hearts, Clubs, and Spades iB the popular designation for the Windsor tragedy, and " Come where my love lies-Deeming," the new version of an old refrain. THE Sydney Bulletin has invented names for the leaders of the Queensland Co alition Government. Sir S. W. Griffith is dubbed Sir Tomuel Grifil wraith, whilst Sir Thomas M'Hwraitli is designated Sir Samas M'llgriff. AUSTRALIAN sheep seem to find favor in South Africa. About 40 rams sent to Cape Colony, not long ago, from Victoria, averaged £30 per head, the highest price being £54. A Tasmanian ram at the same sale brought £150. The expenses of trans portation was £7 for eacli sheep. SIB S. W. GRIFFITH is not at all inclined to amend the Electoral Act in the direction of " one man one vote."

What People Say. P. J.WALLACE, ESQ., KANGAROO VALLEY, N.S.W. WHITES : " Dear Sir,-I have much pleasure in bearing witness to tbe great value of Clements Tonic in cases of Lassitude, Ner vousness, and Constitutional Debility gen erally. For more than twelve months 1 was a martyr to extreme lassitude, loss of appetite, sleeplessness and their concomitant train of physical troubles, so much so that I feared I should have to abandon my profession as a journalist, writing being particularly irksome and laborious to me. I tried several advertised tonics (?) with little or no good result, and began to think my case beyond the power of medicine to cure However, seeing your tonic advertised in my exchangee, I concluded to try it aaa "dernier report," and I am pleased to say that the result was most satisfactory. After taking one bottle I found my appetite jnnch improved, I could 6leep more Eoundiy, and felt refreshed next morning, I continued the medicine, taking in all six largo bottles, an...
