OMDURMAN. (Written for the Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 9 December 1898

OMDURMAN. BY TYRO. (Written for the Chronicle.) IT was sunset and the beauties of the west shone forth in splendour. The sun had just disappeared behind the blue hills in the distance, and their crests were still of a golden tinge. Above, in the sky, the fleecy clouds which had arisen to bid the sun wel- come to his rest, were now blushing a rosy red, and between these and the hilltops, the sky was a deep bright amber. The scene was flooded with a subdued light, and the river, winding through the trees, reflected all the glories of the skies. Everything had partaken of a beauty almost celestial. Douglas and his sweetheart were by the river, but their hearts were so full with the thoughts of each other, that the beauties of the sunset had small appreciation for them. Douglas, who was tall and stalwart, and sunbrowned, with the figure of an athlete, and the head of a Grecian god, was looking tenderly down at the yielding, clinging figure by his side. The light of love shone from his e...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 9 December 1898

A onetime Wesleyan Minister of the Windsor Circuit is the Rev. Samuel   Wilkinson, of Sydney, who entered the Wesleyan ministery in 1836, or nearly 63 years ago. Mr. Wilkinson went   from Sydney to Melbourne in 1840, and remained there a short time. The vessel in which he went also carried Mr. Justice Willis, and the officials to constitute a Supreme Court in Mel- bourne, and was three months on the voyage. In his 'Reminiscenses of   Early days in Victoria, 'Mr. Wilkinson relates the following incident, which occurred at a week night service:—"I   stood up in the pulpit, which was re- moved from the chapel in Flinders-lane to the new church in Collins-street, and had just announced the text, 'We have no continuing city, but we seek one to come,' when the bottom of the pulpit gave way. With it I sank to the floor out of sight. The effect on the congregation may be imagined. As for myself, it was some time before I could repress my r...

A PECULIAR CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 9 December 1898

A PECULIAR CLUB. THERE has been a club established in Brussels which puts No. 13 into the shade. It is called 'Club abd Cafe     of the Dead.' The interior is decorated with paintings representing death under all its most horrible aspects, framed in bones of human legs and arms. Beer is drunk out of vessels representing funeral arms, and at the back there is a curtain which, when it is drawn up, discloses a corpse in wax, in a real coffin. By some mechanism the wax   flesh falls off, and the resultant is a lot   of bones.

THEY SAY: [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 9 December 1898

THEY SAY: THAT no one doubts the power of the Press since last week's par in this paper has had the effect of again starting the post-office clock.   That when a Cobargo no balled cricketer was defending his style of bowling, a Wandella man clenched the argument by ejaculating, "Well, that's the way I kill parrots, any- how!" That of all the Chronicle's many troubles during the past week, the climax came when Vic. Henry essayed to sing, " Say, Au Revoir."   That it's rare thing for a batsman to   return to the pavilion (f) without ma- king an excuse for his downfall; and That it never occurs to such that if they didn't get out, the other side would not get in. That one of our butchers went north for bullocks the other day ; his dog did not discover his absence until next day, when he jumped on the coach, joined his boss, and is now assisting to drive the cattle. That there is far too much "bar-   racking" at cricket matches, and th...

The Royal Commission on charities recommends the construction of a new maternity home for the poor. The Upper House yesternight made good progress with the Federal amend- ments, and unanimously decided to maintain the existing right of appeal to the Privy Council; the Council also refused to accept the financial clauses as final. McGowen's proposal for the alter- ation of the constitution by means of the referendum was negatived without   division.   The Assembly passed the Crown Lands Act Amendment Bill through all stages without material alteration; also all Public Works bills; the latter being sent on to the Council. The Friendly Societies' bill was in- troduced but it is not...

GENERAL NEWS, [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 9 December 1898

GENERAL NEWS. Mr. James Tyson, the millionaire squatter, died at Felton Station, Queensland, on Monday, the 5th inst. He was found dead in bed. Deceased was aged 74, and had been ailing somewhat lately, but refused to see a doctor. His remains will be buried at Toowoomba. Australia's indebtedness to England   is the modest sum of £367,168,000, involving an annual contribution by way of interest of £14,149,000, in- cluding payments to absentees brings the total to £14,260,000. New South Wales' share is set down at £106,665, 000 interest on some £3,570,000. Playing for Paddington on Saturday, Noble made 267, not out, making his average 429 for once out. An intimate acquaintance of the late James Tyson estimates the latter's wealth at £5,000,000 sterling.

THE Idle Thoughts OF An Idle Fellow. ON VANITY AND VANITIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 9 December 1898

THE Idle Thoughts OF An Idle Fellow. ON VANITY AND VANITIES.   ALL is vanity, and everybody's vain. Women are terribly vain. So are men—more so, if possible. So are children, particularly children. One of them, at this very moment, is ham- mering npon my legs. She wants to know what I think of her new shoes. Candidly I don't think much of them. They lack symmetry and curve, and possess an indescribable appearance of lumpiness (I believe, too, they've put them on the wrong feet). But I don't say this. It is not criticism, but flattery that she wants; and I gush over them with what I feel to myself to be degrading effusiveness. Nothing else would satisfy this self-opiniated cherub. I tried the conscientious dodge on her one occasion, but it was not a success. She had requested my judgment on her genera conduct and behaviour, the exact case submitted being, " Wot oo tink of me? Oo peased wi' me ?" and I had thought it a good opportunity to make a few salu- tary remarks upo...

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, DECEMBER, 9, 1898 ANY persons having to transact busi- ness with the local post-office must have frequently felt the great incon- venience arising from the utter want   of privacy in that public building. For the transaction of the numerous lines of business which the post-office is called upon to do, such as sale of stamps, registration of letters, issue and cashing of money-orders, sale of postage and duty stamps, answer- ing of numerous enquiries, and the constant mail delivery, only a small pigeon-hole is available, and under the circumstances it is absolutely impos- sible for the customers of the postal department to transact many of the necessarily private lines of business   that occur almost every hour of the   day. Then the telephone business partakes of an atrociously pu...

TILBA TILBA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 9 December 1898

TILBA TILBA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT)   My letter of a fortnight ago, re the expenditure on the aborigines at the Wallega Lake settlement seems to have "roused the possum" in the   editor of the "Times," who launched   out in a column or so of abuse, etc., on my luckless head, and published a set of figures for the year 1896 as correct statement for the year I give, and also takes exception to my re- mark that it was a handsome picking for the superintendent in charge, and tries to make out the said superin- tendent only received £30 for the year, instead of which he received as salary from the— Aborigines P.

LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS. OWNERS of stock are required to register same before the 31st inst. with the Stock Inspector, Bombala. Those persons having one head or more must conform to the law. WE have received the price schedule of Bega's 27th annual exhibition to   take place on the 1st and 2nd March. As usual the prices are numerous and substantial, and the sheet is printed in the "Gazette's" best style.     A CONCERT and social will be held on Boxing night 26th Dec. in aid of the Christ Church choir fund. A strong committee has been formed to carry out the programme, which, we understand will be of an unusually attractive character. WE are pleased to see Mr. Fred   Salway of Wilgo, who some time ago   sustained a severe accident through a falling tree, is able to get about again, although looking far from well. We hope soon to see Mr. Salway restored   to his usual good health. THE following players will d...

SANDOW AND SAMPSON. Two Men of Might, [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 16 December 1898

SANDOW AND SAMPSON.   Two Men of Might. AMONG the visitors to Sydney just now is Charles Sampson, a man of muscle     and strength, who claims to be the "strongest man on earth." Really     he only came to Australia for a holiday but, having been, made much of by the press and public, he gave a private ex- hibition of his power and skill at Her Majesty's Theatre, and fairly staggered his guests by the feats he performed. Sampson is undoubtedly the possessor of the London Athletic Club's certifi- cate for the weight lifting record of the world, but, on the qualification of all-round strength, his claims to cham- pion honors are disputed by Eugene Sandow, a muscular wonder, of Lon- don. Sandow is now running two or three institutions for the cultivation of strength, or, as he puts it, for teach- ing exercises for physical development. The idea has had quite a boom, and the professor has written a most inter- esting littl...
