AN ELECTION PETITION. ' Mr Robert Jones, late member for Mudgee, has lodged a petition with the prescribed deposit, against the return for that electorate, of Mr. Richards who now holds the seat; The grounds of the petition are sufficiently numer ous, but the principal counts allege bribery — in the guise of money and promises of employment— on the -part of Air. Richards. Other practices in which are supplying of drink to voters, and intimidation, form important feat ures. There is another count in which .Mr. Jones 'verily believes' that a mistake was made in counting the votes, and that papers which were informal were declared as formal; also that many of the voting-papers were not initialled, etc. The document has been referred to the Elections and Qualifications Committee.

ODDS & ENDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hillston Spectator and Lachlan River Advertiser — 10 September 1898

ODDS & ENDS. ' A great many small lots of farmers' wool,' a Riverina writer retnarks, ' are still sacrificed at the sales because they are not properly got up. Many, farm ers shear on dirty floors, roll on solid tables, and bale ihe wool by hanging the bales and cramming the lleeces in wit n the. assistance of a spade. Of course, every man has better means within his reach than these, but it is not possible forstruggling'settlers with small flocks to put up proper sheds and presses and turiv out their wool clean ly rolled, neatly pressed nnd .properly branded. A practical scheme for over coming the ?difficulty would be the forming of companies of farmers. Here and thero two, -.three .-or more small (lock men purchase a press, and it is removed from farm to farm as it is re quired I'-y this means the cost of the plant is 'divided, and it is possible for each settler to- liave.- his wool pressed and turned out in proper fashion, Ir.

A Dangerous Epidemic. [Newspaper Article] — The Hillston Spectator and Lachlan River Advertiser — 10 September 1898

A Dangerous Epidemic An epidemic of influenza is at pres ent raging in the colonies, n.-ul .scarce ly anyone is without at least a slight attack. This dreadful malady is one of the most tiresome and inconvenient diseased imaginable, and few seem to realise that, an absolute cure for it is to be found ir, Bile Beans. Influenza totally incapacitates the suil'erer from doing any sort of work, and life itself becomes a burden. There is, in tho ? first place, a violent cold, generally in the head, and a constant anil violent headache is one of the most trying symptoms. Pains, too, in all parts of tin* body and limbs are also prominent, and a general ci illapse of the entire system follows. The appetite is im paired, and a *ensalion of wea-iness nnd total disability t-i even think in a connected manner i.s noticeable. Of jvourse, as this malady gains a hold on the system the symptoms become more strongly marked, until tho patient is not only in an extremely delicate, but an absolutely dan...
