TILBA TILBA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 25 August 1899

TILBA TILBA. (Prom odr own corrsspokdent.) I think "Wragge must have got con siderably annoyed at so much growling and crying for rain, and has made ar rangements to give ns a year's supply right off, for it's been raining part of every day for the last three weeks, and there is every appearance of more favors. I do not know how many inches have fallen exactly, but am sure they would add up to " feet." The roadB are in a glorious state, particu larly through the township, and several cases of bogging have taken place of late. The McHugb's, who are putting the box cutting through the hill, are having a bad time all round. They strack a solid patch of granite and are doing a lot of " blasting," and the con sequence is. that rock is flying serenely all round.

A Patent Sucker. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 25 August 1899

A Patent Sucker. On the farm of Messrs. Dymock Bros, at Jamberoo there uiay b9 seen in uie a very simple bub a most ingenious contrivance. It is known as' Clarke's Patent Sucker,' and lias been intro duced from Victoria. By its agency calves may- be -reared wltlioui the slightest trouble and the loss of time attached to hand feeding which ordi narily renders that work eo tedious and unprofitable. The 'sucker' is an indiarubber teat attached to a tube, and may be fixed in the fence of a yard or paddock without the slightest trouble, so that the teat is on one side and the tabs And bucket with which it connects on the other. The calves take readily to the 'sucker.1 The great value of this contrivance lies in the fact that by its means bull calve;, which as a rale are now killed soon after birth because of the trouble involved in rearing them,'the only return being- Is 6d for the skin, may be reared without loss of time or with out trouble, until they are six dr eight weeks old, when, ...

THE "BUMPER" AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 25 August 1899

, 'TfiE "BUMPER" AGAIN, Tireolber day a youth was engaged in Eome kirid of horse-play with others in an up-country town. Being an Aus. tralian youth, he, of course, had just been smoking a cigarette, and had the expired butt of it between bis teeth. This he accidentally swallowed, and in a quarter of an hour he was dead. This will give support to one of our legislators, who is righteously endea voring to suppress . the practice of cigarette smoking .by mere boys. It has not been medically proved, we believe, that the cigarette was the cause of death, but there need hardly be any doubt that it contributed to it. This incident should cause something of a scare, for most people know that a very little nicotine is sufficient to kill small animals. The commonest type of cigarette smoker iB not very large, and is never going to become so; and it is much easier to swallow a cigarette than a pipe; while, for financial reasons, our schoolboys and weedy hobbledehoys cannot patronise cigars.

CHAPTER XVII. The next day all the newspapers pub. lished a long account of the capture and death of the unhappy man, to. gether with full text of his strange confession, which was dated the day of his flight from England, the day after the inquest on the body of poor Enid M&rgary. It began abruptly enough. ' I write these lines fully resolved that they shall never be seen until I am-dead, so that I shall tell the whole truth. ' I have been wicked all my life. Jeanie Dewar is not the first girl who can lay the ruin of her life to my charge. It was easy to deceive her by a secret marriage in a false name, and then to pereuade her that it was in valid, and I had laid my plans so well that I was sure I could never be found out. When I tired of her pretty face, as I soon did, I left the neighbourhood, and was fully persuaded that I should never hear or be molested by her again. Then I met Enid M&rgary, and for the first time, bad as I was, I knew the power of a pure and ...

The young man had devoted his whole time to the only patent remain ing to him, and by his care kept her alive for several years, but at last her delicatc frame succumbed, and site died at Melbourne a few months pre viouEly. On her death Vanbru^li found him self obliged to begin in hard earnest to earn his living, for lie had 6pent his money lavishly in seeing that his mother had every oomfort and luxury, and only a small moiety of what had once been a moderately handsome in come remained to him. Fortunately, his nomadic life had given him a storehouse of information, and he was able at once to take a fairly go...

It was a night towards the end of September, one of thoee extremely dark nights that often occ(ir in lhe early autumn, and with the coming of eveLing the wind had suddenly changed to an easterly direction. As the express wbb the last train that stopped at the station that night, all the lamps/ save the two that were actually necessary, had been turned out, and the porter, with his handker chief of red and yellow cotton tied round his neck, was waiting impa tiently on the platform, for he wanted to go home, and the train was already a quarter of an hour late.

Jeanie owed neither love nor respect to, the unhappy man who had died by bis own hands. The girlish fancy she : had left for the handsome aristocrat who had wooed her when she was scarcely more than a child had long since died out. And he had been silent whilst she was thought guilty of the murder ho had committed, and tried for her life, and had not lifted a finger to save her.

Which putB me in mind of an accident which I am told, occurred on the Bermagui Tilba road, one day last week, lb seems a well known Tilba teamster was coming to Bermagui with a load, and when travelling that part of the road known as the long lagoon, famous for its tena cious like substance, teamster lost his boots in the mud. When nearing Bermagui he was asked where were his boots; he said, " they are somewhere between here and Montreal.' I don't know if the above is a fact or not. At all events, I believe it, as I travelled the road, and know its fearfully bad state. I would not have bees sur prised had I been told that the team had gone with the boots. " The Bermagui Joc...
