A Fly in the Ointment. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 16 February 1898
A Fly in the Ointment. " It is a sight for sore oyes" to go out in the surrounding country at the present time and gnze upon the mag nificent pasturago, and the sleek con tented looking flocks and herds graz ing thereupon. The aspect of the late crops, with tho oxception of a few scorched patches of corn, is also calculated to gladden the oyesight and assure bountiful roturns to tho tillers of tho soil. But the '' fly in tho oint ment" for many of tho Bottlers is tho bad state of tho roads they havo to travel ovor, and tho consequent difli cult}' in getting their produce to market. For oxample the Castle Kock road lending to Coal Creek, except in a few patches, where attempts have been made to, form it, is at best a bush track, and a bad ono at that, and thus tho.people who have to use it are greatly handicapped as compared with those that live near better kept thoroughfaros. The District Engineer should take a drive over this road in its present condition, when the ne cessity of ha...

Border Barbarisms, [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 16 February 1898
Border Barbarisms, Wright Dradge and his brother, A. Dradge, of Whitton, New South Wales, own a team of working bullocks, and now they are possessed of ^something else. They have the knowledge that, in Australia, malefactors are sternly punished. They had not much wealth, for beyond the team of bullocks, a waggon, and the ability to work for an honest living they only had £37 and that they havo had to hand over to the Victorian Customs because they wero technically guilty of an offence which is made to appear quite horrible by being termed " smuggling, " The brothers got permission to bring their bullocks into Victoria to follow a New South Wa'es thrashing machine, and return with it to the other colony with in seven days. One of the two fell ill, the bullocks did not go back, and down upon both swooped tho Customs oflicer, Tho fine for their crime is £100 and confiscation, but believing there was 110 deliberate design to smugglo tho bullocks, and knowing further that tho imposition...
How to Help the Local Paper [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 16 February 1898
How to Help the Local Paper You can aid your-'iifcwspaper greatly by giving.the local paper your general printing; if you'do not feel able to run an advertisement, surely you can af ford to give the newspaper your cards, dodgers, billheads, envelopes, and all business printing to execute. The newspaper man needs^it,> and it''helps to pay. the thousand and' one free no-, tices he gives you and vour town'; . but don't give it_to the travelling canvasser who can give you no'such return, and is spending neither time, "money, nor brains in helping you to build -up your drstrict. The time may come^when a newspaper may live simply upon the revenue derived from the subscription? and advertisements, but 110 ordinary newspaper in any ordinary town can exist without auxiliary' support derived from general.printing.' Therefore ,if you want a good newspaper—one thrft will still help your town—give it all your printing.

DISTRICT NEWS. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.) Denman. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 16 February 1898
DISTRICT NEWS. (FllOil OUR OOBRESPONDENTS.) Denman. On Sunday nght the residents of Denman had very little sleep—the ma jority had none—thinking of the pos sibility of being washed to a watery grave. The river broke over its banks about ii o'clock on the flat and came rushing down at the rear of Messrs. Hudson's, Doyle's, and Saunders' places, and quickly submerged all the land adjacent, being supplemented by Sandy Creek, thus preventing any traffic from reaching the post and tele graph office, from which to learn how the river was turther up. The tele gragh master (Mr. Cummmg) acted ivell in giving us, by signs with a red light, the rise ot every five feet at Mus wellbrook. The only means of getting to the telegraph office would be by boat, aud there are none here. Why is there not a government boat here ? The town could be protected by a small embankment on the Government camping ground, which would cause the river to rise 3 feet higher before washing into people's houses, and cau...
The Descant of The O'Sullivan [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 16 February 1898
The Descant of The O'Sullivan By this time the gentleman who spells his name O'Sullivan, must regret that he challenged labor member Hughes to a debate at Captain's Flat. As ii result of that debate what the Maoris call the mana of The O'Sullivan, in! at least one important district in his con stituency, has gone down with sudden ness and certainty, and the member for Queanbeyan now feels, like-, many . a man before hint, that he is " sorry rhe spoke." From'a summary of the *de bate, which was published in Sydney papers, no one can say; that the...issue: placed before the meeting at Captain's Flat was not a fair and direct one. The motion which The O'Sullivan had the hardihood to support was- that- " the vote of the labor party on the occasion of the last motion of censure was 111 direct opposition to the wishes of the miners." Captain's Flat is-essentially a mining district. Three or four hundred people attended the meeting, ahd of these The-O'Sullivan could only :;get 45 to agree ...

The Tick Question. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 16 February 1898
The Tick Question. At the sitting of the conference of Ministers ol Agriculture at Melbourne on Saturday, reports were submitted showing the experiments which had-' been conducted .by Dr. J. S. Hunt,: and Mr. C. Pound in -Queensland, y.v\ tending over several months,-iir mocu ■ lating cattle with the blood of animals' which have recovered from the .tick'' fever. The method h';is' proved sue-1 cessful as a preventive against' tick 'di sease. Dr. Hunt, in his report to : Mr. A. J. Thyiinc, Queensland Minister for Agriculture, thus summarises the more important ascertained facts in connec tion with the tick fever:—_i, That the disease is communicated by ticks, and in nature by licks only. ' 2:.. That cattle may be infected for many months with out showing signs of'diseasesj ,from this circumstance it would ^appear, probable that al| cattle ticks do_ not cariy the specific, micro-organism^'of:, tick.- fever. 3.

The Liability of Bakers. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 16 February 1898
The Liability of Bakers. An important decision was reported in Friday's Evening News as having been given at the Quarter Sessions, Denili quin, by Judge -Rogers, in the case of a baker who appealed against the ruling of a local justice of the pence." The baker had been fined £6 for selling light weight bread. A sergeant of police had dropped upon him in his bake house while lie was drawing a batch of loaveSvfrom the oven. As the slave of duty, the sergeant began to weigh the loares. In the further performance of his duty, he had to declare that he found fifteen of them wanting. There were 280 altogether. The contention' on which the appeal was made was, as will have been seen, that deficient weight should have been calculated on the whole batch, and not 011 a small portion of it—011 single loaves. The legal gentleman who appeared for the magistrate and the police confessed himself vanquished at once, as he recog nised that under one section of the act the appeal was a good one. Ther...
