Town Talk. [Newspaper Article] — The Wyalong Advocate and Mining, Agricultural and Pastoral Gazette — 10 November 1900
Town Talk. In addition to Ihe nnny good associa - tions or clubs existing at Wyalong, a good move would be to establi-h a local I'm; brigade. Of course there is ■a big drawbaelc in the s1,i:\vic of v^aler but this should make the organ: ;at.'on of a (rained body of men more neces Stiry, as ill ol a blaze the reduction of a (in; could bo accomplished without a brigade, but when water is so scarce tho presence of men under control — men who know what to do—would undoubtedly tend to .save a deal o ^ property that would bo destroyed, and is often destroyed by a rush of man who aro often in one another's way. There is first class material in Wyalong to form a (ire brigade —wo have as tine a body of men as (here is to be found anywhere, and there is no doubt they would enthusiastically enter into the movement. There is another thing in favor of a firo brigade, and that is the high rates nosv ruling for insurances would bo lowered — the reduction gained by forming a brigade would i j more ...

Bush Sketches. AN UNKNOWN TRACK. [Newspaper Article] — The Wyalong Advocate and Mining, Agricultural and Pastoral Gazette — 10 November 1900
(By Xi.) AN UNKNOWN TRACK. There is; always a feeling of oxpec- | tation when one starts to follow a new track. It may be that the track is very like other tracks, the scenery on eith-T hand that which one has' seen hundreds of times; the birds and beasts lil;o other birds and beasts; the sky blue as it generally is : and the track itself cither dusty or muddy as the case .nay be ; but therois the pos sibility of something unoxpected, some thing rare, or altogether strange, and hence the feeling of expectation. One comes to a belt of mallee. It stretches out to the right and to the left and in front, apparently for er.dless miles, such mallee scrub ia like any other scrub each stick is about the same length, and to looks at a dead level of monotony. And yet in the mallee one may see, at times, one of the shyest and in a quiet wajT, ono of the most beautiful of the Australian birds—the mallee hen ; and also one of the most marvellous of the. many marvels of nature, the malleo lion's ...

The ground available on the landing side was 10ft., then there was a precipitous fall to the lake below of about 200ft. The daring rider was unseated, and the horse stopped- in a stride oil land ing, amidst the greatest excitement. The slighest mistake on the part of the horse or rider would have led to serious injury, if not to certain death.

Grasshoppers and Ants. [Newspaper Article] — The Wyalong Advocate and Mining, Agricultural and Pastoral Gazette — 10 November 1900
Grasshoppers and Ants. On Thursday night we had a visitation 1 of rs'ingocl ants and grasshoppers—-in inev itable T>v.»curs;ov oh summer. Conditions of life in Wyalong during suramn1 are hard enough without these extras. On the night in question just as peoplo had settled ■ down to read the contents of the mail, or to writo their letters, they suddenly became awaro of an unplcasan tsansntion of ants falling down their collars, and creeping over their bodies. In an incredibly short time tho table and floors became covered with their discarded wings and everything covered with these bus-y creatures all intent upon finding- a new habitation. Of course reading etc had to bo suspended in favor of a lounge in the open air. . But a more unusu.il, and what may be a more serious pest made itself unpleasantly felt during tho same night. Smiruis of grasshoppers invaded our dwellings, dashing themselves against the lamps and hopping in hundreds over everybody and everything, and during the l...

Harrison, Jones and Devlin, Ltd. WEEKLY GRAIN REPORT. As is usually the case at the end of each uaonth, the markets during the past week have been exceptionally dull, and consequently the turnover has been comparatively small. However, we aro glad to say that to day being the opening cf the month, the markets in most lines show a .lecidcd improvement, and a tinner tendency is noticeable in a great many instances.
