THE Idle Thoughts OF An Idle Fellow. ON GETTING ON IN THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 16 December 1898

THE Idle Thoughts OF An Idle Fellow.   ON GETTING ON IN THE WORLD. NOT exactly the sort of thing for an idle fellow to think about, is it ? But outsiders, you know, often see most of the game; and sitting in my arbour by the wayside, smoking my hookah of contentment, and eating the sweet lotus-!eavcs of indolencc, I can look out musingly upon the whirling throng that rolls and tumbles past me on the great high road of life. Never-ending is the wild procession. Day and night you can hear the quick tramp of the myriad feet—some run- ning, some walking, some halting and lame ; but all hastening, all eager in the feverish race, all straining life and   limb and heart and soul to reach the ever receding horizon of success. Mark them as they surge along— men and women, old and young, gentle and simple, fair and foul, rich and poor, merry and sad—all hurry- ing, bustling, scrambling. The strong pushing aside the weak, the cunning creeping past the foolish ; those ...

A WOMAN'S POCKET, [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 16 December 1898

A WOMAN'S POCKET. THE most difficult thing to reach is a woman's pocket. This is especially the case if the dress is hung up in a closet, and the man is in a hurry. We think we are safe in saying that he always is in a hurry on such an occasion. The owner of the dress is in the sitting-room, serenely engrossed in a book. Having told him that the article which he is in quest of is in her dress-pocket in the closet, she has discharged her whole   duty in the matter, and can afford to   feel serene. He goes at the task with   a dim consciousness that he has been there before, but says nothing. On opening the closet-door, and finding himself confronted with a number of dresses, all turned inside out, and pre- senting a most formidable front, he hastens back to ask, " Which dress ?" and being told the brown one, and also asked if she has so many dresses that there need be any great effort to find the right one, he returns to the closet with alacrity...

FRENCH COMMERCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 16 December 1898

FRENCH COMMERCE. IN view of the continued "strained   relations" between England and France, it is opportune to point out that the amount France would lose by carrying matters to the point of war is altogether disproportionate to any that she might possibly gain. Apart from expenditure in war material, men, and ships, the cost of a conflict with England may be gleaned by a reference to the recently published official report on the French Customs. The figures therein are dispassionate orators, but their eloquence is convin- cing. Here they are :— The total exports of France in 1897 to Belgium, Germany, and the United States together amounted to 1,350,000 000 francs, while the purchases of England alone amounted to 1,132,000 000, or practically the same as the total exports of France to her three next best customers. From these figures it appears that while one-third of the total export of French products depended upon England as a customer, the entire French Colonial Emp...

The Chronicle. For the cause that lacks assistance, For the wrongs that need resistance, For the future in the distance, And the good that we can do. COBARGO, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 16, 1898 TRUE to our promise we now propose to deal with that portion of the three feet six inches, neat measurement, of the Tilba "Times"     leader of 7th instant, which bears on the subject of the late coronial inquiry into the cause of death of Mrs. Caffin. The abuse of ourselves by the "Times" "man," we can afford to pass unnoticed   and unheeded. We have no doubt the "Times" would like to make this   serious case which involved the question of two lives, an occasion for a low newspaper warfare of a personal and degrading character, such as "its soul   dearly loves." Under any circum- stances we will always set our face resolutely against this class of journal- ism; but in the particular instance     with which we a...

THEY SAY: [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 16 December 1898

THEY SAY: That plum duff "snatching" is a new Cobargo accomplishment, the in- dustry being duly inaugurated at a   Cobargo hotel; and   That the pioneer "snatcher'' will find the article very toothsome after his usual meal of damper and corned beef. That some Cobargo cricketers are so   unpunctual on match days that the club is seriously thinking of providing a cab for the dilatory ones. That the Tyson season is on and many of the actions related of this creature of monopolistic and tyrannical land laws would be scorned by any self- respecting tramp. That the two batsmen who opened Cobargo's first innings on Saturday found out that a superfluity of adipose tissue is not conducive to fast running between the wickets. That some of the Cobargo cricketers are so slow between the wickets they won't attempt to run for anything in- side the boundary. That "Rodney" once delivered   some bullocks for his boss, and refused to accept the buye...

The Elections and Qualifications Committee dismissed the petition against Griffiths seat for Albury, de- claring the e...

A REMINISCENCE OF BUSHRANGING DAYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 16 December 1898

A REMINISCENCE OF BUSH- RANGING DAYS. As I am one of the very few who re- members the event of the bushrangers attacking the late Henry M'C. Keightley at Dunn's Plains, near Rockley, in October, 1863 (Mr. H. Rotton, Mrs. Rotton, my sister, Mr. and Mrs. Keightley, my brother John, and several others having all passed avay). I think I ought to put the plain facts of the affair before the public, not that I wish to make myself conspic- uous in the affair. In October, 1863, Mr. Keightley was living at Dunn's Plains, near Rockley, his servant man named Bal- dock had gone into Rockley. Mr. and Mrs Keightley were in the yard at the back of their house, when they noticed five horsemen jump over a bough fence some distance from the house. Mr. Keightley at once recognised them as bushrangers. Mr. and Mrs. Keightley immediately made for the back door, Mrs. Keightley entering first, Mr. Keightley following close behind. The bushrangers fired at Mr. Keightley as he was entering the door, and som...

GETTING YOUR PICTURE [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 23 December 1898

GETTING YOUR PICTURE   THE operator is just about to with- draw the cloth. His hack is towards you. The index finger of his unoccu- pied hand mutely marks the place for your eye. Every nerve in your body is braced for the ordeal. The cloth is drawn; and the noiseless and unseen fingers of the prepared plate are pick- ing up your features one by one, and   transferring them to its mysterious surface. What an influence is this you are under, and which you cannot explain, which weakens every nerve, and unloosens every cord and muscle, and sets free and over you a myriad of sensations you never knew before! The eye of the camera glares upon you like the eye of an offended and threatening power. Prickling sensa- tions are felt in your scalp ; and a heat evolved within with amazing rapidity flushes to the surface of your body, and leaves it pierced with a thou- sand pains. You stare at the mark with an intenisity that threatens to obliterate your sight. Heavens! ...

BUSHBAKGING DAYS. The Death of "True Blue." [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 23 December 1898

BUSHRANGING DAYS. The Death of "True Blue."   THE death of Mrs. Keightly having served to recall the incidents connected with the tragic "sticking-   up" of the Dunn's Plains station- house in the latter part of the month of October, 1863, a News reporter ob- tained an interview with a gentleman who was a member of the mounted police force in that district at the time mentioned, but who now holds a responsible position in one of the   greatest importing firms in the city. This gentleman readily agreed to give what information he could concerning the matter, but stated at the outset that his story of the affair did not tally with that which has for many years been accepted by the public as the correct one. He believes, in fact, that Keightley never saw the bush- ranging Burke (better known at the time as "True Blue") at all, but that     Burke died by the hand of his own comrade, Ben Hall, as the result of a shot fired ...

THE Idle Thoughts OF An Idle Fellow. ON BEING IDLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 23 December 1898

THE Idle Thoughts OF An Idle Fellow. ON BEING IDLE. NOW this is a subject on which I flatter myself I really am au fait. The gentleman who, when I was young, bathed me at wisdom's font for nine guineas a term—no extras—used to say he never knew a boy who could do less work in more time ; and I remem- ber my poor grandmother once inciden- tally observing, in the course of an in- struction upon the use of the prayer- book, that it was highly improbable that I should ever do much that I ought not to do, but that she felt con- vinced beyond a doubt that I should leave undone pretty well everything that I ought to do. I am afraid I have somewhat belied half the dear old lady's prophecy. Heaven help me ! I have done a good many things that I ought not have done, in spite of my laziness. But I have fully confirmed the accu- racy of her judgment so far as ne- glecting much that I ought not to have neglected is concerned. Idling always has been my strong point. I take no credit to myself in ...
