Notes and Comments [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 25 March 1898

" Noogoqra."] In humble opinion the time has come;' for the wily Parkea policeman to turn the search light of attention from Off the uncertain-gaited " drunk" on . to the ubiquitous small-boy. Just mow an epidemic of bottle gathering seems to have badly attacked the juveniles. Bottles that can't be aeetited by begging are cooly stolen, and the small boy when bent on a bottle-stealing raid does not require much temptation to annex anything else portable that is, lying about handy in the yards where " the bottles grow." And thus like a mighty river, that, swells as it rolls on, the habit thus simply acquired grows and spreads until it finds an outlet in something glgaintic. And to add to the mischief the inotrey thus secured from bottle or old-iron selling is converted into cigarettes with as much expedition as is humanely possible. Yery few have »ny idea of the dimensions to which the boy-thief has grown in our midst. Several instances have come under my notioe which are simply hair ...

Dandaloo. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 25 March 1898

ROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT,) During the past week or two the days have been getting hotter and hotter, and I. verily believe ihe nights have been going towards the other extreme. That appears to be the way with the Bogan weather. We either have it that hot that one fancies it a veritable inferno both indoors and oufc^ or eiae we are shivering with the cold. | We poor thin blooded mortals fancy that our nigbts are as cold in the winter as a good many piaces, and tell tales of ice-covered tanks and gilgais, and leaving water bags full at night and finding them frozen to a solid block of ice in the morning ; but in reality the nights, are not really cold—at least, not what one used to the coldness of Kiandra would call cold. However, when one has gone through months of weather such as we had in November, and parts of December, January, and February, they cannot but help feeling it rather chilly, although I do not think you would find one that would give them up r'or the summer nigbts.

Our Neighbours. (FROM OUR EXCHANGES.) GRENFELL. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 25 March 1898

(fkom our exchanges.) GttENFBLL Mr, T. Dodd has upheld the protest lodged by the Weddin Cricket Club against the inclusion in the Cowra team of a player named McCormick, a former resident of Cowra, but who for the past three months hoc been living in Wellington. What might have resulted in a very serious accident happened here on Sunday week. A resident of Birabi named Taylor was out driving with his wife and another female, with two children, in a sulky, when the horse suddenly took fright and bolted, throwing the driver out, and sprain ing his ankle; the snimal then continued his mad career some short distance, when another of the party was thrown out, ' and then a little further on the sulky came in contact with a Jog. Mrs. Taylor, who was still in the vehicle with her child, | \ came to grief here, but escaped com paratively uninjured, the child only having his thumbnail torn off, the whole party sustaining but slight injuries.

Fiield. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 25 March 1898

(FttOM A CORRESPONDENT.) Of course the event of the week has been the deputation to interview the trustees of the Fifield Common, Contrary to expectation no gore was spilt, and those two opposing bodies met and billed and cooed over each other in the most approved fashion. The meeting of the trustees was held in the public school room. Mr. O'Neill, one of the trustees, introduced the deputation to the trustees stating that Mr. C. Medcalf would state their grievance. Mr. Medcalf tersely put the matter in a nut-shell, by Btating that the Common was not granted for the benefit of any particular person and he thought the present tariff was too exorbitant and that one shilling a year for large stock was ample to work the Common. He also mentioned that it was rumored the present trustees were illegally elected. The secretary here rose to read something out of the Commons Act when Mr. O'Neill told him to sit down and not attempt to read any thing unul requested by the trustees, at the same...

BOUEKE. A case of scarlet fever has been reported, a boy named Crossie, aged 10, who resides with his mother in a cottage across the billabonp, having been attacked. ^ Complaints of the rapid multiplica tion of the emu and the damage caused by it, have lately become both loud and frequent. Of the 27 cases of typhoid fever now being treated at the hospital, two only are causing some anxiety Mr. R. Hobson has been the victim of a very severe attack; and his cou oition is a critical one. Mr. P. Smith, formerly employed at the Meat "Works., is also very bad, but the Medical Officer, has strong hopes of ultimate recovery. A touching scene was witnessed at the grave on the occasion of the iatennent of young HeiaBworth, a typhoid yictim. The burial service was conducted by the Kev T.

A Mother's Wish. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 25 March 1898

A mother's proudest moment anci happiest wish is to help an ambitious son in his early struggles to attain eminence in his chosen walk of life. To such a son a robust mother with a healthy mind in a healthy body is the best counsellor, and the best spur. Many mothers are sickly, fretful help less creatures, tortured beyond endur ance by th.J pang of their own wrecked constitutions. An ambitious youth receives little encouragemeut or sound advice from such a mother. Most ill-health among: women is due \to weakness 7 and disease of the organs dis tinctly femi nine. If these parts are weak and. diseased, the entire sys fcem suffers. It j is quite easy to keep'all.the organs of the body in a healthy, vigorous atate, with a little care and attention, Many -remedies act in such a violent manner that their use ia more harmful than bene ficial. Bile Beaas act in a gentle, soothing manner, and they will be found an undoubted specific for Head ache, Indigestion, Biliousness, Con stipation, Pi...

"FOUND DROWNED." [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 25 March 1898

Friendless and homeless when dark mid night was nigh And the storm-king bewailed him in tones loud and high, When the lamps burned bright in tbe homes of the great. And poverty sat shiv'ring outside the closed gate. Friendless and homeless, through the piti less storm, In tattering garments sat a lone woman's form— A form that once gladdened a fond mother's heart, But whose own was now writhing, struck through with a dart. DisoWned and degraded—from innocence • hurled, Cast out on the mercy of an ignorant world, Cast out on that mercy 'mid scoffing and pride, Denying a Saviour Who for sinners has died, Where now shall she turn for some shelter ing roof, When kind-hearted sympathy turns from her aloof 1 Unheeding the cold rain which falls on her head, For the weight at her heart bears the sem blance of lead ; While her future foretelleth *' 'Twere better be dead." < For he who lured her from father and mother Forgets all her charms in the arms of an other. Hushed all the t...

Current Jottings [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 25 March 1898

'We live and learn. At least some of us do and the rest plod on in what may really be blissful ignorance after all. Premier Reid has gained a lot of information of late (and lost a deal of his temper too), and amongst other things he has discovered, as he toid the Con vention, that "a general election is one of the worst kind of means of ascertaining the will of the people." And then the Premier went on to point out that the general election which placed Lord Salisbury in power in Eng land resulted in a most unsatis tory victory for the Bible and beer party. There was a deal of truth in all this, of course, for during the stirring times of a general election men are invariably sent off their heads by wild party cries raised especially for covering the real issues at stake. The result is that the triumphant return of the Bible and beer brigade, or whatever successful political war whoop may have been sounded, and then when it is too late to ^torept the error the electors, see ^ow^dra...

Woman's World. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 25 March 1898

The even! of the week has been the first public reception given by Mayor ess, Mrs. Harris. There have been tnapy such functions before, but on no such occasion has fche Town Hall of Sydney presented such a rich and brilliant spectacle as on Thursday laBt. Our new Mayoress is very popular, she ia hospitable and homely, and possesses the happy knack of letting everyone think she is pleased to see them. The Hall too looked lovely ; it was lavishly decorated and what with music and son.?, there was everything to make the gathering a successful one. The Mayoress was rnagmficeatly dressed ; the gown I believe was specially woven in Paris for the occasion. It was a cream corded satin, the skirt was perfectly plain, save for the side effect I mentioned before, This was edged with a band,of myrtle velvet and then finished with a narrow row of beaver. The bodice was made with a basque and high Medici collar. The front was jewelled to form a waistcoat, and brocaded in a waratah design. Myrtle ...

This story comes along from the Bogan. ,f Ail old man was met in Dan daloo by a familiar of hi*8, who accosted him thus, ' Hullo Jimmy, where have you been this last three weeks ?' ' Oh,' he said, e I have just come in from Spmifex Station, where I was cook ing for two boundary riders. I used to dish them up all right too ; only one day they found my spectacles in the plum ' duff3' and they bucked about it so I left—bother them. If it had been my socks, it would have been something to growl about/" The following maxims from <( More Tramps A broad," are somewhat humor some When in doubt tell the truth. Noise proves nothing.
