Coronation Day. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 13 June 1902
Corenatian Day. Nothing has, so far, been arranged i locally to eventuate 0:1 Coronation Day,, 26th inst., and seeing that the day will be universally recognised as a public holiday, and will probably he a day of general rejoicing-, it would be a pity if it was allowed to pass wit hout some effort being made to airange local sports of some kind. There r.re various institu tions connected with the township which require public support, the one mist, needing assistance at present being the Progress Co-remittee, and we think the members of this committee should take the matter i a hand and see what cm be done.
SHORT STORY. HANGED IN CHAINS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 13 June 1902
tsllOKT STOJEiY HANGED- IN CHAINS. It was a bitter cold night outBide, snowing Kid freezing hard, and as Farmer Wells got up from bis cosy chair in Ihe parlour of tbe Grreen Dragon' to put another log on the fire, te exclaimed : 'There's no acuounlin* for taste, but for myself I'd a sight rather bo bere than hang ing along with Captain Moonlight out there on the moor.' ' Ah, poor fellow. I'm sorry he's gone,' murmured the rublound landlord, u he con templatively gazed at the light through hts glass of steaming punch. ' He weren't so blaok as he were painted after all.' 'Well, well; yon've heard the analent laying,' testily remarked old Mr Uppcrly, the lawyer. ' He who breaks the law, muBt die by the law !' ? If that there rnle were always followed,' said Farmer Jawkins, ' there's many a one aB I knows on who's enjoyin' hisself now, who d be a-swingin np alongside of moon light at the four oroBS roads to-night.' 1 That's true,' agreed Farmer Wells. 'And there's one thing to be eaid f...
Mr. D. Ross [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 13 June 1902
Mr. £3. Ross The many friends of Sir. D. Ross will regret to hear that his condition has in no way improved since leaving Cano windra. The following letter, which has been handed to us, wriite-n by the young man's father, Mr. W. lloss, of Molong, esplaius his case — ' . . The journey from Caaosvindra to hero in his weak state was enough to kill a horse, and will account for his bad condition to-day, for he can neither speak nor hear what is spoken to liim. On Monday ho bled at tho nose from 12 o'clock in the night to six oclock in tho morning before it could be stonned : lias not. hind silica but it left him awfully weak up to the present time. No one is allowed to see hiui but myself, and that only for a few moments at a time. So far as I can see this morning lie looks better, still cannot converse with him. The doctor now hopes that lie will bring him through, though nothing definite will bo known for eight days longer. 7.6.'IJ2.' No im provement has since been reported in Mr Ross...
FENCING IN PARIS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 13 June 1902
FENCING IN PABIS. The first of the two meetings between Signor Pini and M. Kirchhoffer took, place at the Grand Hotel, Paris, recently, in the presence of a very limited audience. The jury was composed of Signori Tag liapiatra and Coloinbetti (nominated by oiljuur jtiui / auu mm. rrevot ana mniue Merignac (nominated by M. KirjhhofEer). The Marquis of ChaBseloup-Laubat acted as president. In the result Signor Pini was declared the victor by ten hits against M. Kirchhoffer'e eight. It was th? first match in which hits above the small of the arm have been allowed, and if the. point of the foil,, grazing the forearm without staying there, landed on the body, thin also counted. The partisans of the French fencer maintained that M. Kirch hoffer had not remembered these innova tions sufficiently in his practice before hand, and had not acquired the habit of parrying strokos which might have been neglected under the old rules, while Signor Pini took full advantage of the change in his attac...
Science. MARVELS OF MEDICINE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 13 June 1902
Science I MAB.VKLS OF MEDICINE. W^KOWHEBE (says ' The Standard') dlVlfp ' has science achieved so many re markable triumphs of late as in the realm of medicine, and some of the surgical feats accomplished during the laBt few years have been bo remarkable that one might well be excused if one re garded them as a string of medical fairy tales. But dull and uninteresting as tho science of medicine may seem to the lay mind, this brief cbaptcr of iecent medical achievements must convince the reader that even here there is an element of romance. Not long ago an operation was undertaken in a Dublin hospital, for which there was no precedent in the United Kingdom, and it is pleasing to be able to record that it was entirely suc cessful. The subject of the operation was a discharged soldier, who was suffer ing from ophthalmia, having lost his eye lidB. Three doctors in the Eye and Ear Hospital, Dublin, were consulted, and asreed to make a bold experiment. The eyelids of a newly-killed pig we...
The Law of Libel. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 13 June 1902
Tho S,av/ o? Libc!. Mr. Justice Owen has pointed out that though in England newspapers have the j right to publish true reports of what takes place at public meetings the press of New South Wales has no such pri vilege. If expressions are used at a pub lie meeting which are libellous and a newspaper reports them, that newspaper must take the consequences. He thought tho iaw should he altered, but that was how it stood at present.

MR. McLEAVY BROWN. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 13 June 1902
ME. McLEAVY BKOWN. Mr McLiavy Brown is at home in that far-away sphere in which the Anglo Japanese treaty operates, Korea, being now the Chief Commissioner of the Cus toms at Seoul. It is nearly thirty years ago since McLeavy Brown — needless to say the Chief Commissioner is a Scot — made his appearance in China. Seconded from the Chinese Customs for special duty, Mr McLeavy Brown has devoted nf lifa difficulties which beset Korea, occupying at first a dual position aB Treasurer General and Chief Commissioner of Cus toms. Within the last few yeatB the active interests of Mr McLeavy Brown have been confined to the administration and direction of the Customs Service. Mr McLeavy Brown has long been an enigma in Seoul, When, in 1836, Mr McLeavy Brown refused to accept any salary tor the hopeless and onerous poBt : of Financial Controller of the Imperial J reasnry, tne ioreign community or oeoui wore astcnished. This refusal to burden still farther the resources of an ex hausted country,...

POETRY the ballad of the armada.

Why,' continued Filler, ' if I could discover what's become of Mr, Bryden, and where he's gone to and wby he's gone there, and at the same time get to knew what this mixed-up business at Morning ton is, I should spite old Cotton and get promoted.

His One Jake. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 13 June 1902
His One Jake. .yjjr.HE apples and cider and the genial CljMo warmth of the glowing coal fire KBkJ caused the old man to grow re miniscent. He placed his slip pered feet up on the fender, and, while brighter light came into his faded eyes, he talked of the ' good old times.' ' Once,' he said, and he smiled at the ruuuiieuuou, i aiu a very funny thing when I was a very Bmall boy. I think I must have exhausted, all my genius for fun in that one grand effort, tor I have never had the heart to attempt a funny thing since. ?It happened when I was about ten years old. I was then helping farther to run the farm, and, I suspect, we ran it pretty hard, too, for the first thing I know it got away from us, but that ii another story. As I was Baying, it happened when I lived on a farm. We had a hired man, a orpanf rav.VkAnai) t_:_i ? ® inwaman, &b fall of mad pranks as Peek's bad boy. He was always playing some trick on me. One night he placed a large thistle in my bed. It was summer tim...
HORT STORY LITTLE SPINDLES. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 13 June 1902
[?] llTTLE SPINDLES. His was an insignificant little chap with a mildly innocent expression and a crack in his voice, yet ho could read a woman's eyes better than any man I ever saw. A match making bachelor, that was the wonderful part of it. There wesn'i a love affair m our set but he knew all about it. and if any of us laid a little bet occasion ally on somebody's chances no one dreamed of laying to him. We would appeal to him as judge, but he would only smile and shake his head j yet he knew, and in coniidenoo he has many a time given me proof that he knew per fectly, even when we were all at fault. A born match-mater ! And yet, for all the quick, sympathetic spirit hidden behind those sleepy eyes, he never showed a sign of feeling on his own account. It was a long time before I could read the riddle. We were at the Crichton's dance when I noticed him looking rather more vacant than usual. We were such old friends that I knew what he meant and accosted him. 'Well, spindles, who i...

A Result of The Drought. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 13 June 1902
A Rasult of The Drought. The decimation in the flocks of Mr. S. M'Caughey, the 'Sheep King,' has been enormous of lato years (says the Morec Nems), owing to the drought, judging from the figures which showed that he. previous to the droughty seasons reign ing supreme, possessed the enormous number of 1.220.000 shnnn lmf n:»v Iiij can only boast of the bare 25 ),U-I0. Tii-; | loss of one million is treinnudnus. Flocks all over the drought stricken areas have been similiarly reduced. Surely this shold be enough to awaken our legis lators to ponder deeply whether tile Go vernment should uot ctep in and help by putting down bores and providing water in abundance, free of cost to stockowners, so that their auimal losses might bo at lea6t mitigrted.
