Manildra Matters. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 4 March 1898

Manildra Matters. Our /lanildra correspondent writes : There is not much stir in Manildra at present. The late rains and the warm sunny days have made the pasturage plentiful for the stock.—A visitor here the other day stated that there was something good in store for Manildra, He referred fco the mines here which have been at a standstill for some time. He said that the parcels of ore which were sent to England for assay were good, and in a very short period a number of men would be employed on the mine. However, we would prefer to see it than to hear of it.—Mr. John Oockram has started business here as a butcher. He ought to make it known in the " Western Champion." What we want now. is a flour mill and a brickmaking business'started here.

THE Western Champion AND PARKES AND FORBES REPRESENTATIVE. FRIDAY, MARCH 4, 1898. Editorial Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 4 March 1898

• THE PARKES AND FORBES REPRESENTATIVE. FRIDAY, MARCH 4,1898. Mifcorit! lot* It is highly probable that the peace of the civilized world will be broken by war between Spain and the United States. Iudeed, it appears from the cable message that it has already been broken, and that the sinking of the U.S. warship Maine was a treacherous and cruel outrage, perpe trated in the assumed interests of Spain. The diver discovered, it is said, that the armour plating of the ship was blown inward for a distance of lift. This would demonstrate that the explosion was not caused by an accident on board, as was at first thought, but by a torpedo or sub marine mine in the harbour itself. There are doubtless many fanatical desperadoes who would glorv in such an exploit as that of sinking a war ship belonging to a foreign Power, especially if the Power were suspected of being unfriendly. But torpedoes and submarine mines are not at the disposal of the ordinary desperado. They are strictly under the co...

| A lost Distressing Case of I Anaemia. A LADY WHOSE APPEARANCE SHOCKED HER FillENDS. CURED BY DR. WILLIAMS'PINK PILLS FOR PALE PEOPLE. Having received information of a very rapid and coaiplete cure affected | by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, our reporter waited on the late sufferer at her residence, 60 Yurong-street, Sydney, to hear from her own mouth | an account of her illness. Mrs. Johns is a pretty and vivicioua young lady of about 25 years of age, and in answer to tbe questions put to her she said :—f< I have been very ill, but at present I am enjoying excellent health and spirits. Indeed I don't know that I ever felt better, in my life. I can safely say that 1 owe my satisfactory recovery entirely to Dr. Williams' Pills. The first cause of my illness was, I think, the worry and extra work caused by moving from place to place, for I have been a great traveller during tbe last year or two. Anyhow, after my last journey I began to feel very low and depressed in spirits; I...

Original Sketches. DUST. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 4 March 1898

mucauai DUST. \ " Dust thou art and unto dust shalt thou return." , The above Scriptural quotation came impulsively to ray mind as I was being waltzed along for at least the space of an ordinary sized ball-room by one of our Wyaloug whirlwinds, into the embraces of which I had inadvertently "had the pleasure." "Deux temps" didn't come up to within numberless metres of the time at which my part ner waltzed me around to the music of the wind as it lifted stray bits of newspaper, discarded jam tins, bits of sticks, and legions of crisp, withered leaves that had fallen from the near •box trees, remnants of rocks, and— dust. Oh, yes, dust, dust especially, indeed 1 may say dust emphatically and materially ! Dust that ascended the trouser legs and gradually worked its way down to the big toe ! Dust that shook hands cordially and then wandered lovingly away up the shirt sleeves to meet its co-mate particles . that had descended behind the shirt collar! Dust that lifted the hat and . whirle...

I went; out to America, traced Lady Hartleigh and her daughter, picked up the evidence of her ladyship's death, and was tracking her daughter, when 1 heard that Mr. Hartleigh had come Over and found her. I didn't come back to England at once, for the stage company had placed a case in my hands and that detained me. It was a case of highway robbery, stopping the coach, and so on. While engaged upon the case I came upon these facts———' ' Oh for goodness' sake * broke in the duke ; but again the uplifted hand stopped him.
