Praying for Rain. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 13 May 1899
Praying for Rain. The present distressful situation in Cobar furnishes an illustration of how &nbsp; a common danger draws people to- gether in a way that a common pros- perity never can. It is reported that at a meeting to be held in the Masonic Mall on Tuesday next members of the Church of England, Wesleyan, and Salvation Army bodies, led on by their respective official heads, will be found on the same platform. Having con- trived for the time being, at any rate, to climb over, or get round the con- ventionalities that generally separate them, and on common ground, apply to the God they all worship to send the rain, for want of which things are almost at a stand still. Seeing we profess to be a Christian people, the only wonder to the non-Christian is that this has not been done before.

London has a little army of 50,000 lady clerks. Driving is a favourite pastime of the Duchess of Fife. Glue mixed with skim milk will resist water after drying. &nbsp; Kissing a woman's lips is a gross insult in Finland. Shetland women are the finest knitters in the world. In Berlin sheet music is sold by weight. The French army prefers Irish horses &nbsp; for its cavalry. Drunkenness is very rare amongst Japanese women. Good players on the harp are the scarcest of all musical performers. Danish light-houses are supplied with &nbsp; oil to pump on the waves during a storm.

In certain Parisian restaurants...

De- &nbsp; ceased had no relations in Cobar, and &nbsp; &nbsp; died penniless. He was his own great- est enemy, leaning further to the side of intemperance than was beneficial to his well being. One striking point &nbsp; about bis untimely end is the fact that had the road been in ordinary repair Loughlin would most probably be alive to-day. According to the evidence of Dr Robinson deceased was badly in- jured internally. The body was in- terred after the inquest, on Monday afternoon. Deceased had been living apart from his wife (who is said to be in Bathurst) of late years.

THE HONEY MARKET. From the Agricultural ttazr.ttr of N.S. \V. Some statements have appeared. in daily papers which indicate that tho induatrv of bee keeping is absolutely overdone in this colony, and it has also been declared that honoy is practically unsaleable. Mr. Albert Gale takes un the cudcelB on behalf of the maligned industry. As President of the National Beo-keepers' Association, Government Bee Expert, and the author of tho articles on bee culture in the Government Gazette, he can speak as one having tho authority which expert know ledge confers. With regard to the alleged lack of a market for honey, Mr. Gale says that a mooting waa held on the 10th of February with roferenco to sending honey to England. It was pointed out at this meeting that most of the bee keepers were not in a position to incur the expenses attaching to sending their produce to the Home markets, in view of the great length of time that would elapse before they got anj' retnrn. It was announced, however,...

AN ACHING VOID FILLED. 1 In every house, Miss Powelson,1 said young Mr. Haybenslaw, with agitation, ' there is a spare room. It is kept for the use of some honoured guest. In every heart, too,' — and he laid his hand impulsively on his own — ' there is a spare room ? ' 'And wo find one, too, m so many hoads,' sho murmured. 1 Miss Powelson — Irene !' tho young man exclaimed, choking down a large and expansive lump of rising sighs, ' in my heart there is a spare room sacredly set apart for you.' ' Only one, Mr. Hnybenslaw ?' she asked, dreamily. ' Do not mock me, Irene Powolson ! It shall be a whole suite if you wish. More than that! You shall have the entire premises if you'll only say so, and if that isn't large enough we'll tear down and build bigger.' ' This spare room — this suite of rooms, Arthur,' said tho maidou, softly, ' that you are speaking of — how — how are they furnished ?' ' In real modern style, Ireno,' replied the young man, with a business-like ring in his voice. ' ...
