The Burthen of being Engaged. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 4 August 1899

Tlie Burthen of being Engaged A Vouk'g man was talking the other daj of the burden of being engaged.

The girl expects to be taken to everything worth seeing at the theatres, and to be escorted to fashionable balls. Think of the ex pense of it 1 A fellow can't think of trams or 'buses. Often he takes his bride-to-be to her home in a cab from a ball, and then dismisses the cabman at the door, and walks to his own heme himself for the sake of economy.

CHAPTER XII. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 4 August 1899

CHAPTER XII. The speech of the great barrister created a tremendous sensation, and an instant revulsion in Jennie's favor. When he left the court he found John Dewar waiting for him. The old man caught at his gown as if to detain him. * Go, sir,' he cried, pitifully,' tell me it's true, let me hear you say it again' that my girl is a lawful wife!' ' It is true, but the. villian tried to destroy all proofs of the marriage by burning the certificate and sending the only witness of the marriage to America. He told the poor giil that it was illegal, and she was under age and he had married her under an as enintd name, and she' ben :ved him, that waa wliy she ran away and would not .lot you know where she was, as she thought she had brought disgrace upon you. Tou will hear in court later how she discovered that the was Carew's lawful wife, and then deter mined to trace him out and stop him from marrying again.'

CHAPTER XI. That concluded John Dp war's evi dence, and it had done Jcanie's cause great harm. A girl who had broken her old f-ither'a heart for lier dissolute lover's sako'might well be capable of murdtr dering her rival when that lover de serted her for a richer bride. Evidence was then given as to the finding of the body by the servants who had been sent ont to search for their young mistress. Lying not far from the scene of the murder was the weapon with which it bad been com mitted—a thick, heavy branch, broken off from one of the trees that stood by the side of the road. The man who fonnd the weapon was cross-examined by Jeanie's counsel. •At what height from the ground was the branch front which the weapon had been broken off ?' < About five feet,' the witness an swered, readily. ' Was it not very heavy—too heavy for a woman to hold V This question was overruled, but the stick was produced. It was heavy, but not beyond the strength of an ac tive, healthy country gi...

Sermon on Gambling. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 4 August 1899

Sermon on Gambling On the evening of Sunday, 7th instant^ the ReV. A. S. Swift delivered in tlie Windsor Wesleyan Church a discourse on " Gambling," and wafl listened to with grave attention. He said:— It was painful to. contemplate the extent to which the beat efforts ot Christian teachers and workers were being netttfalieed hy certain demons lising customs o{ our communities, one of which was the gambling propensity which there was reason to fear was growing. It was estimated that 75 per cent of the people practise gam' bling to sotae ektent, and in eVery community there were tote shops and gambling houses plying their trade in an open or clandestine manner. People laying claim to respectability and to the natiie of Christians were tainted with thiB vioe> the idea seeming to be that within moderate limits the thing was innocent.

TENNIS. The long-talked-of tennis match be tween Dry River and Verona took place on Saturday last on the conrt of the latter. The match, which was a very friendly and enjoyable one, resulted in an easy 'win for the visi tors. Mr. Sullivan captained the Dry River team and Mr. M. Walsh acted in a similar capacity for Verona. Mr. G. Campbell filled the' positions of umpire and scorer, and as hia broad face was frequently wreathed in smiles it is reasonable to conolude that he" found much to amu&e bim during the. day.

FOOTBALL MATCH. Centrilba defeats Cobarg* Labt Saturday the Cobargo football feata engaged in their fourth match, playing the return with Centrilba. The day was beautifully fine, bat a strong northerly wind made it evident that the defence of the southern goal would be no child's play. The ground was in splendid order after the-late rains, and a nice coating of grass saved the players a good deal when. brought down.' Mr. D. Keir, at the request of the Cobargo men, took charge of the game, and although a little diffident at .the start, pleased the players and spectators immensely by his firmness. Messrs.

High Priced Cattle. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 4 August 1899

High Priced Cattle At a sale of Aberdeen-Angus cattle at Perth in March the average for 315 animals was £30 15s each, as against £24 12s last year. The highest price and best average were obtained by Sir George Macpherron Grant, of Ballin dalloch, one of whose bulls made 190 guineas, and whose average for seven was £96 9s. The sale was one of the moBt successful auctions of the breed that has. ever been held. One has to go back more than half a dozen years to find out anything like a parallel to it. An excellent demand was exper ienced from Ireland, and from several districts in England. There was also a very marked increase in the demand from the dairy districts of Scotland for crossing bulls, many of the farmers in these parts having taken to black bulls, with which to cross their Ayrshire cows. The produce is a much more valuable animal for feeding purposes than when the Ayrshire bull is used.

The Crimes of Love. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 4 August 1899

The Crimes of Love Mb. Proal contributes along paper to the February number of tbe " Nou velle Revue" on what he calls " Tbe Crimes of Love," which be jllttstrates from various famous works of ancient and modern literature. He begins with the Greeks, who apply to Venus, or rather, Aphrodite, the epithet " Slayer of Men,", and cheerfully informs us that when love- begins there begins also the possibility of a judicial drama, of a snicide, or of an infanticide, or of a murder. To repre sent love under the aspect of a young and beautiful Woman is to give only one aide of the medal. Love may as accurately be represented by a Fate holding the abhorred shears, or by a Fury brandishing a dagger. Who could count, he askB, the stabs, the revolver shots, bowls of vitriol and cups of poison which have had their origin in love? Of course he distin guishes, The love which comes from the heart suffers more from sadness than anger, and results in suicide rather than murder. Bub in ill balanced nat...

MR- KEID HUNTING FOB A FIGHT On Saturday night the Premier ac cepted an invitation to dine at the Australia Hotel with a number of prominent French residents who have established in Sydney a French Cham ber of Commerce. He seized cpon thiB somewhat , unsuitable occasion to introduce the $uesti6n of party poli tics, and make a violent attack upon his political opponents. The Premier, in reply, admitted that he had had a good innings, "but," he added, " it is the feeling that I am keeping somebody else out in the cold all this time that I don't like. (Laughter and cheers.) They say I cling to office ; it iB not that I cling hard, but that they can't poll me off.

CRICKET NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 4 August 1899

CRICKET NOTES. Bv "the Recorder" in Troth. Kanjitsinhji has without doubt a wonderful mastery over the bat, and his. supple wrists and keen eyesight enable him to perform in a manner impossible to imitate. Australians cannot have forgotten his marvellous placing on the leg side and his behind the wicket strokes. Poor Harry Trott, excellent captain although he was, and aware of Ranjitsinbji's partiality for thiB famous leg stroke, never seemed to take sufficient measures to spoil Its indulgence. Noble in the New South Wales match against Stoddarfc's team laid a trap for the Prince, and although the snare was laid in full sight of the bird it came off, Ranji being neatly taken on the leg side by Sid Gregory. Darling, with considerable judgment, in the teBt matches placed no lesB than two men on the leg side when Ranji was batting, and his macceuvre so cramped the Indian's play that he almost refrained from making hia favorite stroke at a)]. Darling's fore thought saved his side many r...

VICTOR TRUMPER. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 4 August 1899

| VICTOR- TBUMPER. The Sussex match, like nine of its predecessors, has ended in a draw, bnt the game will be for a long time re markable tot the great innings of 300, not oat, played by Trumper. This is the highest individual seore yet made for an Australian team in England, the previous beat being 286, not out, by Murdoch, in 1682. Curiously enough, Murdoch's record was also put up on the fast-scoring Brighton ground, and against the Sussex bowling. With his big innings, Trumper not only achieved the 1000 rnnB that everybody here was waiting with in terest for, but he headed Noble's aggre gate of 1238. He has now scored 2179 for 30 completed innings, which gives him an average of 42.63 as against the 44.21 of Noble, the 42.60 of Worrall, and the 41.80 of Hill. The batsmen, it will be seen, are very close together -in a banch. Trumper, itv will be remembered, made 135, not out, in the test match at Lords, and this b how his batting impressed one London critic:— " Trumper's fine inn...

A Great Phonographer In an obituary" notice of the late Thomas Allen Reed, the World Ckrig iian says:—" One t>f his marked char acteristics was. the consummate Blcill with which he adapted phonography to every branch of reporting work, no matter how technical or abstruse. A feat in which he prided himself as one of the most notable in his career was his successful reporting of Bishop Phillips Brooks, who was the terror of all reporters. The last sermon of thia divine was delivered at an average rate of 220 words a minute. Mr. Reed was retained by Mr. George Henry Lewes and John Stuart Mill, who dic tated to him wotk for publication. Mill had no notes, but dictated with great deliberation and precision, never altering a word." Like ttie late Mr. Gladstone, Mr. Reid answers every letter that is sent to him.
