Roman Catholic Concert. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 10 June 1899
Roman Catholic Concert. The entrance tariff of 'three and two ' &nbsp; prevented quite such a crush at the concert on Thursday night as the usual unpretend- ing Colonial Robert might have led to, but there was a very fair house, a very good show, and the management raked together £16 odd anyway. The most effective pro- cess known to Cobar science for extracting precious metal is to half-open a door and stand at it, providing you have an entertain- ment on the other side of it and have pre- viously started operations with an ad. in that unblemished family journal the Cobar Herald. That's so. But to the concert. The inspiriting blasts of the Band having brought round the crowd, a start was made considerably after eight with a pleasing pianoforte overture by Miss Kinkead, and the different numbers followed one another with a creditable absence of wait. The only item &nbsp; of undue length was the intermission for this isn't the shandy season, and concert audiences are l...

Foresters' Ball. The third annual plain and fancy dress ball organised under the auspices of the Court Great Western Ancient Order of Foresters, came to a crisis on Wednesday evening last and proved a very successful function. There were about 40 couples present at this happy hop, the gallery also being crowded with onlookers. The hall presented a pleasing coup d'oeil as society reportresses would say, enhanced by the varied regaliar of the members of the order and visitors from kindred Societies, for Odd Fellows, the Protestant Alliance, Rechabites, Good Templars, and the Accident Association were represented. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; There were several ladies in fancy costumes, and more especially during the Foresters' Grand March which preceded the first dance. The cater- ing was in the able hands of Mrs A. Crow and gave universal satisfac- tion, the supper tables being nicely laid out,...

Rain. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 10 June 1899
Rain. Early in the week Cobar residents were rejoiced with the prospect of rain. Business-like clouds rolled up and a few smart showers fell, causing the races to be postponed on Wed- nesday. Unfortunately they were but transient, and there is only about half an inch difference in the town reservoir. The Occidental cyanide works were able to start on a short run.

FIRST DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 10 June 1899
FIEST DAY. As mentioned before the weather was good all day, although the early indications of a downfall were intimi- dating to sightseers. By 2 o'clock in the afternoon there was a good muster on the course, including a big sprinkle of ladies. There must have been over five hundred persons present. Book- makers were there in profusion, and between them and their pencillers the roar and babble of hoarse human voices was painful. They were also in luck's way generally on the day's racing. Tatta pulled off the first race going to the barrier at 5 to 1 against, being &nbsp; almost the greatest outsider in the race. The Town Plate was won by Bob going out at the longest odds, and with very few backers at that. Then again Gozette won the Flying Handicap at 4 to 1 against. In each of these races the favorites were bested badly, which started the Hebrew's rejoicing immensely. The outside ground was full of 'Yankee Sweat ' &nbsp; tables, etc., and the more modest gambler co...
