Concert at Desman. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 23 February 1898
Concert at Desman. A concert in aid of the funds of the Muswellbrook Hospital will he given in the Den man School of Arts, on Saturday, 12th March next, when a programme calculated to attract a bumper audience will be provided. As the funds of our most deserving charitable institution are by no means in a flourishing condi tion, we trust the- concert, will be i patronised as it deserves to be, and that a good sum will be netted by its promoters for the Hospital.

Our Letter Box. — [The Editor will at all times be glad to . receive communications upon subjects of local or general interest ; but it must be distinctly understood that we do not identify ourselves with the opinions of correspondents.] The Show. To the Editor of the Chronicle. Dear Sir,—:A' special prize has been offered.for a. buckjumping contest and accepted. It ib to be® regretted that such a cruel, and- tracivilising item should be allowed by the committee to bo put on the programme ; it plainly shows retrogression, not progression, for-such performances have gone out of date owing to the cruel treatment the horses recoive from the riders in order to make them buck. I would suggest that, instead of above, a prizo be givGn to the man who can best quieten, by firm, though quiet handling, an unbroken horse, within, say, half an hour's time. This would have a humanisiiig effect on, and give pleasure to, the onlookers. Whilst on tho subject of the Show lot me point out that the sum...

Cassilis. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 23 February 1898
Cassilis. The copious rainfall j ust experienced has completely altered the appearance o'f the country, and grazing paddocks present a most pleasing aspect, re sembling so many wheat fields. The grass and herbage is making very rapid "growth, so that with another good fall next month there should be abundance of feed to see us through the winter. The Munmurra Kiver was during the rain in heavy flood, but beyond washing away some few miles of fencing very little damage was done. Our roads, which at any time are not in the best of repair, are now, in places, in a wretched state, and would be the better of about a dozen or so good maintenance men's labor for a few weeks. Some of the water courses crossing the roads have been washed out to a dangerous extent, while others have been so damaged aa to cause one to hesitate before crossing them. A trip up this way in a vehicle at the present time might convince' some of the roads' officers of the necessity of laying out a few extra pounds i...
