THE EDITOR " WESTERN CHAMPION,") Gentlemen,—This, the first day of the interest-paying month (March) is ' an opportune time to ask you a few plain questions regarding your past, present position and future prospects, via 1861 the late Sir John Robertson introduced and passed into law• \yhat • Was known as the Free Selectors' Act, .Undec which land could be obtained by -. selection before survey, the price being fixed at £1 per acre by a deposit of 5s .per aore, and the balance in five years; failing payment in that time interest was to be charged at 5 per cent.

TOO LATE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 18 March 1898

Tii LATE He was shearing hard in the woolshed when word from the homestead came That the woman his heart had cherished lay feebly sighing his name, That the woman his love had shielded as maid, and mother, and wife— Through the firo of a fever fatal, was gliding from life and strife. Juat a pasoing wave of pallor, blanched his sunbrowned bearded cheek, Ac the super gave the message in such words as strong men apeak When the sternest voices falter from the feeling felt by each In that sympathy soul-deeper than all depths of human speech. Then the swiftest horse was saddled by a shed mate's willing haste, And the rider started forward towards the long, low, western waste, Where the saffron of the sunset and the garnet edged with gold, Gave a stormy background splendid to the bush, and plain and wold. Wild he rode as rides a rider in the dull despair of grief, When excitement caught from motion gives a rocklosa, stern relief— Tet ever in hia riding wild there rode beside him fast, On t...

Current Jottings. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 18 March 1898

Current JBttingg, I Anything worse or more harm ful to a whole community than the •' corner" which a cute but un principled American recently en deavored to rig in wheat, can hardly be imagined ; but that is set down as " business," and the worker of it may not only rank as an honest man, but even trot round with the contribution box on Sunday. England recently started a " corner" in coals in the China seas, the result being that the fleets of other nations were nearly left stranded; but that happened in the way of warfare, and everything is fair in love and war. A German scientist also professes to be able to work a " corner" in baby boys, and if all he says is true, he is likely to be kept going pretty hard, for the supply of sons and heirs never seems to be equal to the demand. Professor Schenk is the name of this exceedingly clever party, and he explains that the whole secret lies in. dieting the woman so that the blood corpuscles in her body become more numerous and stronger th...

Dastardly Deed. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 18 March 1898

Dastardly Deed. In our last issue it was stated a man named Murchison had been ar rested on a charge of cutting the throats of two horses, the property of Mr. J. D. Williamson, Trundle Road. Further particulars of the dastardly deed are now to hand. It appears on receiving information, Constables Tait and Bool, with a blacktracker, went out to Williamson's farm. They soon picked the tracks up, and following these came on the dead horses in one of the Burrawang sheep paddocks, both with their throats cut. It was found that both horses must have been lashed to a tree while the fiendish deed was enacted. However, after the knife was applied to both, one had broken away and run 100 yards before it could be recaptured and done to death, Blood stains appear for over six feet up the trunk of a tree. The affair has caused quite a sensation in the vicinity, and a subscription list is being got upkto replace Williamson's horses, 1

(from our own correspondent.) Mr, J. B, Reymond M.P. addressed a meeting of the electors ou Tuesday night of last week. The meeting was well attended. The chair was taken by Mr J. C. Page, who in introducing Mr. Reymond spoil e of the success that had attended his efforts with regard to their wants, and the attention he had paid to matters generally. Mr. Raymond, who on rising was received with applause, stated he was there to give an account of his stewardship, and to review the work of the past session.

HILLSTON. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 18 March 1898

H I L L S T 0 N. For some time past death has been exceptionally busy amongst us, firm one and then another of our most re jected residents succumbing to the grim reaper. On Sunday last, W. W. Lodge, eldest son of Mr W. Lodge, of Brinden, died dter a very short illness. The young, fellow— h« was only 29—was generally well ■Jiked and respected. With tho. additional 52 points of rain last week, the grass is making, ♦airly good headway^ more especially where it has the shelter of the old ] feed, so that the prospects for the autumn and winter are decidedly more promising than the beginning ! of the year warranted. The last rain, iike the previous one, waa very patchy, ' tor whilst locally only the above mentioned quantity was registered, in many places a short distance away? from one to two inches were recorded. The state of lite river, owing to the obstruction at the mouth of tiie Willandra creek, is causing a public outcry. The Farmers' Association hold its ■ordinary meeting on Satur...

Intercolonial Mining. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 18 March 1898

The Occidental mine cleared up on Saturday for 99oz. At the Bayley's United mine, Coolgardie, 679 tons of tailings, treated by cyanide, gave 84loz. Last week the Tarcoinbe, at Gil gunnia, cleaned up 33 tons of stone for 54 ounces of gold, which is an excep tionally good return. The Princess Royal crushing at Norseman last week was 572oz, from 345 tons, .while 448 tons treated by cyanide gave 293oz. The Norseman Gold Mines Limited obtained 575oz from 697 tons. An official statement issued by the Queensland Mines Department, gives the gold yield for February for that colony as 69,236oz. The yield for February, 1897, was 54,500oz, the increase in favor of the present year being thus 14,736oz. The Gympie gold returns for Feb ruary show that 7,764 tons were crushed for 10,349 of gold, compared' with 4,617 tons crushed for 5,842oz obtained during February last year. The dividends this month amounted to oyer £20,000, being the excess of 11,000 over the calls, Persistent reports are in circ...

ALBURY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 18 March 1898

ALBURY. Much alarm haa been occasioned among pastoralists at Albury by an outbreak of malignant anthrax iu a herd of cattle depastured in a river paddock four mi'ea Irom there. The affected stock came from Colombo Creek station a fortnight ago. It appears from ihe reports furnished by George E. Mackay, the local inspector of stock, that on February 24 a mob of 29 head of tine shorthorn cattle, prime fed, was brought to Bungo wanaah, where Mr. Rudd leases a grass paddock, On the 27th one was found dead, and since then 12 more have succumbed. As John Kennedy, who haa charge of the cattle since they arrived in Albury, is a stock expert, he at once recognised the disease as anthrax in a virulent torm, and adopted prompt precautions to prevent any spread of the disease. The car cases were quickly burnt'and the dis ease now seems to be quite extirpated. The remaining 16 of the mob are atiil healthy, none having exhibited any symptoms of the malady since Friday last.

These operations will bring more money into the district, and provide work for large numbers. Only a few years ago, the idea of such work being carried out on the Bogan would have been laughed at.
