THE SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Charleville Courier — 30 May 1896
THE SHOW. THE second annual show of the Cen tral Warrego Pastoral and Agricultural Association came off on Wednesday and Thursday. The weather was all that conld be desired, being beautifully fine and genial. The attendance was very large, and, considering the multitude of attractions between which the attentions of pleasure-seekers have been divided daring the week, it Was really surprising where all the people came from. The show-ground presented a most animated and inspiriting aspect in the afternoon, when the attendance reached the maxi mum. It is a mere truism to state thac the exhibition was a most unqualified success. The greatest interest, as usual, appeared to be centred in the equine exhibits in the various sections for which prizes were offered. The sheep and cattle were admitted to be of the highest class, a couple of pens of bul locks being fine enough for exhibition in any part of the world. Owing to want of space in the enclosnre, the cattle were shown in the pound ya...
chapter [?]VIII. IN SUSPENSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Charleville Courier — 30 May 1896
Adapter jvitc IN SUSPENSE. There was a silence of some momenta' dotation among the group after they realised Everard was dead. The doctor was the first to speak. " The end has como a little sooner than I thought, bob one can never reckon exactly in thesecases," he remarked. " What do yon consider to have been the cause of death?" asked the clergyman aside, as Mrs. Rivera discreetly knelt down beside the coach on which the dead man lay, and apparently became absorbed in devotion. The doctor shrugged his shoulders, and glanced ab Mrs. Rivers, who, however, seemed ntterly oblivions to everything around her. Then he murmured cautiously, " The poor fellow has lately come into his property, yon know, and been dissi pating terribly, so they say. He has been drinking to-night, and I attribute this seizure to his reckless living." "Sad-very sad," murmured the other. " But Mr. Rivers looks a strong man. I should nob have thought he would die like this." " lb ia often the strongest people who ...

HOW HIS LORDSHIP "GOT LEFT." [Newspaper Article] — The Charleville Courier — 30 May 1896
HOW HIS LORDSHIP "GOT LEFT." THE following anecdote is told of a cer tain venerable and learned bishop, who had an uncontrollable partiality for correct ing and criticising the language of his parishioners. - On one occasion he happened to enter a crowded horse car running on one of the main thoroughfares of the town of F . A business man of the city, who was also a member of his lordship's flock, chanced to be sitting near where he stood, and, think ing it hardly right that he, » young man, should bo seated while his bishop was compelled to stand, rose and said: " My lord, since yoa are the eldest, permit me to offer yoa my seat." Replied the_ bishop, In a critically-instructive tone of voice: "You should say, my dear friend, 'Since you are the cider, permit me to offer you my seat.'" The gentleman gazed at him for a few moments, then tranquilly sat down again and, picking up his newspaper, remarked politely: "My lord, since I am the younger I will keep my seat."

JAPANESE CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — The Charleville Courier — 30 May 1896
JAPANESE CHILDREN. It bas often been said, remarks Dr. Ash mead, in Science, that the Japanese ara the most interesting, the strangest, even the quaintest, people ire know. -. In no regard is this truer than in the care they take of their babies. It is known probably to every reading person that Japan, like all Oriental lands, is, for obvious reasons furnitureless. It does hot even know the cradle. As Diogenes made a cup of hi* hollowed hand, so the Japanese mother makes a cradle of the back of an older child, an ambulating, delightful cradle, where it) stays from morning to night, and is _un rythnucally rocked according to t he chances and sports which the day offers to its patient and loving victim. The cause of the absenco of furniture is the presence of tropical vermin. This awful presence is probably also the cause of the carpetless state of the nursery. The floor is covcred with staffed straw mats, thick and elastic ; it is the usual floor of Japanese house. The floor is moppe...

" Oyes roight !** shouted the instrncto^ and in an instant every man's optic veiled together. " As yon were!" repeated the instr tor, but did not appear to derive tjiea satisfaction from tlj.e movement "Oyes roight!" was the sharp com-1 mand, a second tfine repeated, " When I prive tlie order 'As you were P I. want j to hear every man's eyeballs click as j -yeturn Lo their sockets."

His Reason. [Newspaper Article] — The Charleville Courier — 30 May 1896
His Season. The humbler class of the Irish are so prone to pleasantry that even the deepest distress cannot quell the prevailing hnuiour. A' miserable beggar in a street of . London the other day was asked by a gentleman relieving liiru why lie did not stay at home, since he could not be worse off than where be was ?' " Shall I tell your honour truly why we came over ?" was the reply. " If you please." " Then we came over to look after the absentees."

www mhww "IMITATION Is the SINCEREST FLATTER?," The articles most intimated are CLEEMENTS TONIC and FLETCHER'S PILLS. WHY? BECAUSE they have the beat reputation and are moat in demand by the public, con sequently, every dishonest trader tries to trade on their fame and renown. It is really wonderful that the Australian people are so slow to see the truth as regards the unscrupious quacks and charlatans who prey on the credulity of the Australian public. Scarcely a week ever passes but wliat the press exposes the barefaced and shameful practices of soins of these harpies, 3*et, in the face of all they seem to thrive, and the paper who hounds thciu down most thrives fattest on theiradvertisuinents and cracks champagne over each balance-sheet.
