THE PALMER. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 21 December 1875
IHE PALJiER. The Graphic 2Bnes has been trvored by ?Ir. T. Watts, who has recently re turned .from the Palmer, with intelli genco which we jimagine should suggest to any persons contemplating a visit to that extensive goldfield the prudence of deferring their purpose for a time-that is, if they can by any possibility obtain a decent ssphsistepoe n a healthy locality. People are always found ready to visk health and life in the most deadly olimato, lured by the exlpectation of obtaining immense for tunes in a 'short time ; but on the Palmer there have up to the present time been no fortunes made nor large prizes drawn from the lottery; Those leaving, after endursing great hardship, if they have been faivored with excep tionally good health, genersally return with a few ounces of gold ; but we have so far failed to meet, or oven hear, of a man coming back with what we, no Gynmpio, should considor even a mode rate '"pile."

OBSERVA TIONS EARLY Ic THE 3IORNVINVG. ---+-- By OLD JI.MAOLONG. Being desirous of seeing some of the horses in training for the forthcoming?? Cola, Amateuor Races go through their work, I decided to pay a visit to the traiinig ground, near the banks of the Lake, for that purpose. Ac cordingly, a morning or two since I arranged with a friend to call me in the usual orthodox manner peculiar to those who go out on such expeditions, namely, by " throwing a little gravel againast the window." The sharp tap of the gravel against the glass roused nme front the "arms of Mlurphy," and I was soon en ro ce for the traiining course, accolm panied by my friend. Upon our arrival at the training ground we found that we were rather early, as neitllher ualn nor steed was to be seen. After waiiiing a few minutes, our patience was rewarded by seeing "Old Son " drive on to the ground in a regular American trotting sulky, with the trotting mare, Kate Keartiey, in the .shafts.
