B&ll &t Bogaatuagaa. FAST AND FURIOUS FUN. THE KILTIES' SAD TBCUBLE. [FEOM A CORRESPONDENT.] THE railwaymen in Bogan held a plain and fancy dress ball on Wednesday night; this was to celebrate their leaving the district, as it is expected for some time back that the majority are going to be transferred on the opening of the line through to Longreach. There was a great muster of the railway staff and their friends and the pnblic generally of Bogan; and the dresses of all, and especially of the ladies, bad to be seen to be believed. One going through, or even stopping in the little township for a holiday, would not credit that more than a score or so of ladies could be got together to have an affair of this kind ; but when stepping into the ball-room at 8.30 p.m. one was dazzled by the rich cos tumes and fancy dresses of about fifty or sixty ladies, a stranger's admiration and amazement knew no bounds. The ball was started with a grand march, which was gone through by ...

The Western Champion. Vita sine literis more est. BARCALDINE, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1892. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 2 February 1892
t u Vita tint Uteris vtori ett. BARCALDINE, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 2,1892. TEE Australian Pastoralist in a lead ing article directs attention to a condi tion of affairs existing in the pastoral districts of Queensland, which has for a long time been painfully apparent to all intelligent observers who have had the pleasure or misfortune to reside in the interior of Queensland for a number of years. It has always been our con tention that the supply of labor has been considerably in excess of the demand during the last few years, occasioned principally by the large influx of shearers and fined laborers, who have crossed the border of Queens land from the other colonies, attracted by the reports of high wages so indus trously circulated and often exagger ated by the southern press. It will be remembered that from statistics collected among the men out of work during last year's strike, that in this colony the average earnings per shearer for the year 1890 waB computed at less than £30, and ...

The weather having taken up building operations arc again in full swing a large number of hands being employed.-About seven inches of rain has fallen at Maneroo. Sub-Inspector White arrived from Barcaldine on Friday.-The Champion in its new form is much admired here, and there is every pro bability that the proprietors vrill be well repaid in the near future for the expense, &c., incurred in issuing it in its new garb.-The rain has played sad havoc with the streets, it being impossible to step out of the business premises without going to one's boot tops in mud.

Barcoo Independent. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 2 February 1892
Barcoo Independent. Tbe tocsin bas Bounded and local politicians are girding on tbeir armor in preparation for the contest to fill tbe vacancy in tbe repre sentation of tbe Barcoo, caused by tbe death of onr late member, Mr. F. R. Murphy. Already have tbe two great opposing forces, the pastoralistsand the labor party, announced the names of their respective champions, and tbe air is thick with rumors of other candid ates of all shades of opinion. From present appearances it seems that quite a plethora ot aspirants to legislative honors will woo tbe electors between this and nomination day, when doubtless tbe number will be thinned and not more than two, at the outside three, will dare the ordeal of the ballot bos. Mi. Hill is not unknown on the Barcoo, having some time ago owned AvingtoD station, and he is, we believe, at the present time the only remaining trustee of the Blackall racecourse. From 1885 to 1888 he sat in the Legislative Assembly as a member for tbe Cook electorate, w...

HOW TO CURE MARSUPIAL SKINS. WE are in receipt of the following circular from the New Zealand Loan and Mercantile Agency Company, Bockbampton, on the treat* ment of marsupial skinsOur Sydney man ager has several times lately drawn attention to the.large number of marsupial skins arriv ing in Sydney in weevily condition, thereby affecting the sale and resulting in reduced pro fits to scalpers/ To avoid this unsatisfactory result we recommend the following plan of action which, If carried out thoroughly, will enable scalpers to increase their earnings very considerably through higher prices being riven for their elans, when the marsupial is being skinned the tail should be cut, off say 3 to 6 inches from the rump, as the' skin !b more valuable and tends a readier sale than when the tail is left on. Avoid the use of salt or ashes in drying, and directly after' pegging the skin out to dry in a shady place (making it as.square u possible) paint itwell with a solution of arsenic prepared ...

THE FROZEN MEAT FRAUDS. Mn. A. CHOMBIE, of Stratlidarr Station in the £1ettourns Argus of the lltU ultimo, makes the following exceedingly pertinent remarks, with reference to the reason for the low prices. " When in London," he said, " having an occa sional hour to spare, L used to occupy my time in looking through the small butchers'shops and stalls in by-streets, i.e., quite away from fashionable and expensive parts of the town, and to my disgust I found that while our Queensland sheep were selling wholesale at 2|d and 3d per lb, the retailers were asking and obtaining 6|d and 7d per lb for the same mutton. In many cases it was being sold as home-grown meat, the vendors frequently denying that they ever sold frozen mutton. In the course of conversation one butcher re marked, . If I was starting again I would go in for frozen meat; there's more money in it. But Lord ! if I was to keep it now all my cus tomers would leave me.' He had not a single piece of mutton in his shop excepti...
