THE BLOW-FLY NUISANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 3 June 1904
THE BLOW-FLY NUISANtIE. FOLLOWING the unprecedented and disastrous drought, it is the misfortune of pastoralists to encounter yet another serious drawb ok to their interests, in the form of the blow-fly. The pest is oomParitively new, but in some distriots of the State has suddely developed into a most serious scourge, attacking a large number of flcOks, especially the lambing ewes. This formidable pest is capable of destroying sheep within a few days after first striking them. Various dipping preparations are more or less efficaoious in preventing maggot fly, and in the Brit;sh Isles has been g generally recognisod as an unfailing remedy. Similar testipmory has already been collooted in these States. Proteeoion from this bane. ful scourge may, is it said, be secured by the use of a dip, which will also result in a benefit for both sheep and wool. We have had brought before our notice testimonials received by the Cooper Dip Coy- from many of the leading sheepbreeoders of Tasmania, N...

CHAPTER XXI [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 3 June 1904
CHAPIER XXI After her brother and Locette bad started on their sudden journey, little Barbara pas ard the evening in a very depressed and dtrjecttd' condition. She could not help feeli,.g ti.at there was something much more serious than Hubert %ould acknowledge about the hastily arranged trip. Indeed, taken in conjunction with the terrible state of anxiety in which Lucette had been all day long, the step caused the girl the gravest fears. Lucette had done something which threatened-to have unpleasant consequences --that was the only explanation l;arbara could thiuk of-and, whatever the 'something' was, the consequences would certainly fall upon poor Hubert at least as heavily as upon his wife. Barbara wished her brother had been more frank with her. Aniything would have been easier to bear than the uncertainty and sus .ense in which he had left her. The loneli ness of the house too the girl found oppressive and alarming. Hubert had advised her to write to one of her aunts, a lively ...

The Storyteller. The ou e oi t1h ýurle$ gide. OHAPTE?l XZ.-Coorrxuseo. As they had some time to wait, Sir Hubert suggested that they should dine at the 'Lord Warden' to fill up the time. Lucetto agreed readily to this; and when they were seated at a little table at one end of the long brightly-lighted room, which was just full enongh to be lively, without being overcrowded, her spirits hbegan 'o rise again and she made herself so amiable, so charming that, in spico of the intervening events, Hubert was reminded of the old - days when he and she had first been married. He told her so. And suddenly her face changed, her lip began to quiver, and a moisture to fill her eyes. ' Ah,' she said, ' you remembered dose days I Itoughtyou had forgotten dem.' And she threw him a swift side-glanoe. ' It's my curse,' said he ratherly bitterly, that I cannot forgot.' 'Upon this, Lucette grew thoughtful and - silent, and it was plain that her feelings of gratitude and remorse were each .momenl growi...

INTERESTING ABORIGINAL REMAINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 3 June 1904
INTERESTING ABORIGINAL REMAINS. THE Western Lands Commissioners whilst on tlteir recent tour made an interesting find on the shores on Lake Poopelloe, between Cobar and Wilcannia. Australians are familiar with the stories of the shifting sands of the west; how great hill become hollows, and vice versa. A change has been working for perhaps years on one of the lake shores. It had been a high hill. When the commis- sioners reached it the sand had all gone right down to the clay pan, and there, exposed before them, were a great number of skeletons of aboriginals. It seemed to have been a burying place and camp, or probably the scene of a great cannibal feast. There were the remains of clay ovens, where the cooking was done, nadoo stones—the &nbsp; &nbsp; hard flat flake of stone and the small hand pieces, for the pounding of food seeds—and some axes. Mr. McMaster, president of the &nbsp; commission, has communicated with the museum authorities, so that they may ...
PROFESSOR MACKAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 3 June 1904
PROFESSOI MAICKAY. PROFESSOR MACKAY's Scottish Concert Com pany, which has during past years estab. lished itself as one of the leading campany of artists travelling the country districts of this State, opened in the Protestant Hall last night. Considering the frosty night and the short publicity given the company, the attendance was very good, the back seats ,end the gallery being fairly well filled. A delay was occasioned in commencing the evening's entertainment, owing to the dingerons illness of Mrs. McKay, at Cooms, and the Professor's late arrival by the train. The company was well received and each' artist was loudly applauded after the rendi tion of every item. Since the public are so very well acquainted with the fact that Professor Mackay as a piper has gained for himself a world-wide renown, it would be needless for us to say,any more. The Professor appeared quite equal to his task and handled h:s Scottish instrument in a very creditabl- manner.' His little pupil, Miss Ja...

MR. O'SULLIVAN AND THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 7 June 1904
MR. O'ULLIVAN AIND THEI WAR. SPEAKING at Kiama on Saturday night Mr. E. W. O'Sullivan made some reference to the ~ ar between Japan and Russia. He said that it was only the beginning of greater movements, and at no greater distance there would be a fight for the supremacy of the Pacific and Indian Oceans. Russia and Japan were going hard' at it, and it was a good thing for Australia. If they so crippled each other that it would take 60 years for them to recover, then Australia would have a population to protect herself. If ever Ohina woke up-and she would soon--then it would be a blue look-out for Australia in her present state.
