The Battle of Gettysburg. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 5 December 1902
The Battle of Gettys 'hiire'. Aftcr a lapse of seven years, the manage ment of the Cyelorama decided to replace ' Jerusalem' by re-erecting that niastorniece ofCyeloRunaArt, the 'Battle of Gettysburg' which caused no much excitement here fflino years ago. For the last four years, America and Europe have been searched, for a scene fit to replace Jerusalem, and follow 'Gettys- burg,' but nothing could be found that -would not suffer too much by companion. A South African scene coulil not be had, a buttle scene was wanted, and a constant wish being ex pressed by Cyelorama visitors to see Gettys burg again, it was determined-- as nothinS equal to it in any part of the world could be found-- to ro-erect Gettysburg. This ha-i been done, and visitors to the city, Trill, after recent events, find a special interest in seeing what war really means. Tho management have added a most fascinating novelty to tlie Hall of Illusions, wliich, 'with a quantity of new Cinematograph films make up a spl...

The coroner was a man of but few ?words, and but little given to emotion. Yet they irero sur|-rised at his first question : ' Who 18 the young woman standing outside there, the oiilv one in the yard?' Mr. Sutherland, moving rapidly to the window, drew aside the shade. ??* It is Miss Page, my housekeeper's jiiece,' he explained. ' I do not un derstand her interests in this affair. She followed me here from the house and could hardly be got to leave this room, into which she intruded herself against my express commands.' But look at her attitude!' It was Mr. Fenton who spoke. ' She's crazier than Philemon, it seems to me, ? There was' some reason for this . remark. Guarded by the high fence from the gazo of. the pushing crowd without, she stood upright and im movable in tho middle of tho yard, like one on wat...

Cjurt'ent Concerns. . . ' Hurrah..! . Jlera -woAreagain,' says 'Junius ?' in your, last issue. This individual, whoever he is, must be of a highly buoyant disposition. Perhaps however, he has not yet reached the affo'of responsibility or perchance he' hasl-een indulging in two, at least, of brother ' Jim's ' shandies. However, whatever the cause, in place of yelling ?' Here w.e are,' it will, if this drought continues, merely be a responsive echo of ' Here wo hain't,' for those of us who have not committed suicide, 'or died of .starvation, will have migrated to fairer lands. Its just as well not to be too pessimistic anyhow, for as a local 2'hilosopher remarked the other day 'There's a certain amount of pleasure in the knowledge that we are one and all of us in the same swim. * * ' * ?

Editorial Notes. LAND BOARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 5 December 1902
'Editorial Notes. LAND BOARD. In order that any district may be consolidated, it is necessary for the public generally to watch carefully that the chief centre is vested in all public Offices and Institutions essential for the carrying on of all business with the outside residents. Un less a town can command the periodical presence of its farm ing community, its business relations must suffer to no mean degree. With the advent of a Banking Institution some twelve months ago an important factor, imperative to the prosperity of the town, is the establishment of the sitting of a LandBoard. Seme time ago the local Council and the Farmers' and Settlers' Assoc. took this matter up, but the agi tation was stopped by the De partment granting certain con cessions to the selectors which, important as they were, fell far short of our requirements. This practical refusal, in one instance, should not in the slightest de gree, debar us from demanding our just rights. It is a matter which concerns...

DEBILITY. SOME HINTS FOR THIS WEA THER. HOW TO KEEP HEALTHY. Debility is a state which is generally caused by a combination of nervous exhaustion, indigestion, deranged liver and constipation. This is brought about by the system being 'run down.' Tho functions of the body are irregular and weak, the waste matter is not carried off, properly, the blood becomes poor and thte Complexion sal low.

Mr. Ray. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 5 December 1902
Mr. Ray. . We regret to -report that Mr. Ray, head teacher at the local Public School, is again confined to his bed. For a considerable time past Mr. Ray has not been enjoying the beet of health. Some three months back he was seized with a serious illness from which it would appear lie has never fully re covered. Although -with that deter mination 'which is /so characteristic of him, he persisted in attending to liis duties, all could see -that he was far from. well. On his arrival at Peak Hill about \8 months ago, Mr. Ray would bear favorable comparison with the most robust. He i6 now, however, in consequence of the long continued illness, exceedingly reduced in phy sique. We trust lie may speedily be restored to his health and strength.
