Another Fire. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 18 March 1898
Another Fire. About 10 o'clock on Monday night a fire broke out at the cyanide works erected on the site of the old Dayspringf tailings, resulting in the destruction of: pretty well the entire plant and build ings. It appears that the nightwatch-? man (Mr. W. G, Clarke, whose rooms adjoins the works) on hearing a noise in the engine-room rose from the table where he was engaged writing to find the cause, leaving behind a lighted candle. While absent he heard peculiar sounds coming from his room and on returning to investigate he found it in flames. He at once raised the alarm and soon after the fire-bell sounded. For some reason or other the fire-brigade did not proceed to the. scene of the fire, and as the pump at the works was soon covered withi debris the only thing to do was to let. the fire run its course. The works were uninsured and the loss—estimated at about £800--is shared by Messrs Pettinger and Co, and a syndicate, of which Mr. Haugh is the local repre sentative. The wat...

H.A.C.B. Races. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 18 March 1898
For some years past the Forbes Hibernian Society has carried oat a day's racing on St Patrick's Day. This year the Forbes Jockey Club declined to allow the Society the use of the course. Consequently the Society had either to abandon the fixture or seek fresh fields, They chose the latter, and lost no time iu securing the right to run their races on the Farkes racecourse. The races took place on Thursday and certainly the Society had no reason to regret " the change of venue," The day was delightfully fine, and being a public holiday in both towns extensive patronage was vouchsafed by the public. About 500 people came over by special train from Forbes, while the Parkesites who attended swelled the number to about 1000. The racing was fairly good 1 and everything passed off as pleasantly I as Mark Tapeley's expedition. For the success of the meeting the sec retary (Mr. T. W. Connolly) and his committee, backed up at this end by Messrs Harwood and McGlynn, deserve every credit. Acret'...

In Memoriam IN Loving Memory of my dear daughter, Maude Isabella Jane Mary Gosden, who died at her aunt's residence, Exchange Hotel, Fifield, on the 11th March, 1896. Aged 6 months 11 days. Two years have gone but not forgotten, Never shall her memory fade ; Sweetest thoughts shall ever linger, 'Round the spot where she is laid. Then slumber on, loved one, sweetly sleep, It's hard that we so soon should part ; But oftimes on your silent grave Fall tears from both our loving hearts. [Inserted by her loving father and mother, Richard and Mary Gosden.]

The Storyteller. "In Love's Crucible." CHAPTER XXXIV. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 25 March 1898
[By Bertha M. Clay.] CHAPTER XXXIV. 'May I walk with you, Con stance ?' It was Guy, who apparently had been taking a long walk al ready, for his shoes were dustjr, and his face ruddy with exercise. 1 If you wish to, but it is not necessary. I do not'mind walk ing alone.' Guy bit his lip and walked by her side for some time in silence. Then he exclaimed: ' Would you rather walk alone?' * Oh no,' carelessly. ' X shall not minci if you walk with me.' j Again "Guy relapsed into silence and walked moodily by her side for .some minutes. Every few minutes he would glance at the downcast, face. beside him, and would be on the point of saying something, but would change his Mind: She wis fully alive to the mood he. was in, and her heart almost s tood still every time he turned his anxious eyes upon her. At last he asked: * Why need you go away ? I was willing to go.5 , ^ •' * We wish- to see Maidaf;r W e ■wish her to know from bur own lips that we still love her.' ' But vou need not desert t...
CHAPTER XXXVI. CONCLUSION. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 25 March 1898
CHAPTER XXXVI. CONCLUSION. Three persons, instead of two, left Hartleigh Hall for the sunny slopes of Southern Franc©, and one of the three was Mrs. Guy Hartleigh. They travelled very happily, and on the face of the old man was a serenity and calm that nad not been there for many days after the j f . interruption of the first weddings which had been of his planning. And then there came a day when the three stood on a* terrace over looking one of the loveliest valleys of Southern France, and as they stood they watched a pair of pedestrians toiling up the hill at their feet. ■ Let us hide here until they are nearer,' said Constance, knowing that a surprise in such a case would be the best. And so they hid, and as they looked they could see that the twain were like lovers who could not find expression for all the love they held, and gave it vent in foucl glances and stealthy touches o,f the hands. And Constance slipped her hand in Guy's and their eyes met, and they sympathised with tho...

THE Western Champion AND PARKES AND FORBES REPRESENTATIVE FRIDAY, MARCH 25, 1898. Editorial Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 25 March 1898
FRIDAY, MARCH 25, 1898. lorm u Salua populi supreme lex.5' This is one of the Latin reiica of youthful davB which still haunts our minds. Freely translated it means " The wel fare of the people is the highest law and everything else must be made to bend to it." Tried by this uncom promising rule how does the Com- j monwealth Bill come out ? In many ways Federation would no doubt tend ( to increase the general welfare. It would substitute an Australian for a merely pronounced patriotism and " esprit de corps.3' It would (legally, at any rate) bind together those young and growing English-speaking com munities into one body. Union is strength. To United Australia many things would be possible which can not now be dreamed of. We have not much sympathy with the London l&lt; limes," which says that it would create "another British Power in the Southern Hemisphere.*' The " Thun derer" is evidently calculating how useful the Australian Commonwealth might be made as a pawn in the ga...
