In spite of all we've seen I don't believe any barm has been done; and I don't believe Mrs. Hackbit would ever do any barm. She has done no worse than speak to hitn. That's my opinion, and I know the world." " Oh, you are clever, we know that," re torted Hackbit. " Tou set the match to the fire and now it has grown as big as a house, you expect a backet of water to pnt it out. The game doesn't pay. Do you want her yourself, that you begin to defend her ?

STOCK STATION REPORT, CHAMPION Office, Mondav. 10 p.m. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 2 February 1892

STOCK ® STATION REPORT, CHAMPION Office, Mondav. 10 p.m. THE weather 6incc last report has been fine and pleasant. Oh Thursday some heavy clouds passed west of Barcaldine, and heavy rain fell in that direction, otherwise it has been clear without rain. The Alice River is running be low tlio junction of Lagoon Creek, but the rain has not filled the waterholes above that point. Cedar Creek was running high on Wednesday, and again on Thursday. The Barcoo, fed by the local heavy rains about Blackall and Isis ford, rose rapidly, but did not remain long in flood. The upper part of the river is not running. This rain, we may hope, is only the first instalment of a wet season, and we may expect a further visitation this month and the next. THE total dip of wool from Bowen Downs and Wellsliot stations is to hand. The number of bales from the former station amounts to 4275, and that from the latter 4553. Total 8828 bales. MR. R.

Amusing Scenes in AUora. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 2 February 1892

Amusing Scenes in AUora. AN Allora correspondent to a contemporary writes under Saturday's date as follows :-" I enclose an extract from the Allora Guardian of even date, which will inform yon of the reception a certain person, who has lately been a visitor toToowoomba, met with on hiB return to Allora, The first effigy referred to in the Guardian was being driven through the town when our gallant sergeant of police boldly arrested it and locked it up for 12 hours, though I have not heard what charge he preferred against it. Nothing daunted, the girls had another one made, and it was hung and burnt before an admiring crowd of some 500 or 600 people. The gay Lothario watched the proceedings from the verandah of his hotel on the opposite corner, and only i retired to the friendly shelter of its bar parlor when a sadden rash was made forhim by an excited crowd ; aud well for him was It that he did retire. As it was, all the damage he received was the stain of an over-ripe egg or or two...

Round Camp Fire [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 2 February 1892

ANOTHER beautiful night; the cool breeze5 off the downs were quite refreshing after the heat of the day. Oar friends lay in picture sque attitudes in the vicinity of the camp Are, where a billy of tea still simmered on the live coals. The festive cricket sang merrily, while the distant hoot of an owl broke what would have seemed solitude, were it not for an occasional bleat from the safely bush yaided sheep. The majority of the party were smoking, conversation being carried on in disjointed sentences, and referred chiefly to the day's work, until it was noticed that Milligan was unusually quiet and thought ful. " A penny for your thoughts," sings out the Doctor. " Ah I" says Milligan, " This is the anniversary of a day I shall never for get; you might not credit it, but six years ago, 1 was as close a' goner' as a man need be, for I was nearly boiled to death." " Tell us the story," cried out all hands, and after a moment's thought and a vigorous draw at the dudeen, Milligan coughed...

The columns of ibis paper are open to our Bttbssribers for the ventilation of grievances, the discussion of matters effecting the community, and for the publication of lettew possessing public interest. Personalities strictly excluded. DR. CUMMING W REPLY To THE EDITOR. Sib,-I observe in last weeks' Champion a remarkable production by Dr. Hewer, of Aramac, rc a patient he received. Beyond the fact that I believe the man did go to Aramac, the rest of the letter is not in accord ance with facts, and I am surprised that Dr. Hewer should make the statements he did before ascertaining whether or not he had foundation for so doing. I shall now proceed to pve the true facts of the case:-James Paseoe was a patient in the Barcaldine hos pital up to Deoember 21st, a month before he died. He then left the hospital against advice to stay-left it of his own accord and exprossed the usual satisfaction as to treatment....

f Jtotes and (tammfe. THE cables announce the death of the Grand Duke Constantino of Russia. He ! was brother to the late Emperor, and fought in the Crimean and Turkish wars.
