G-BHTITH'S provincial separation proposals bad been dis cussed by the Parliament of the colony; and we may presume tbey pointed out that as those proposals had been rejected by the southern members, the people in this division of the colony expected to be relieved from the disabilities under which, it was acknowledged, they labored, by making Central Queensland an inde pendent colony. Tu thie Lord KNUTS FORD made answer, that the time was not ripe for complete severation, and that as the Premier had notified he intended to bring his provincial pro Îiosals again before the colonial Par lament it would be wise to let the whole matter remain in statu quo, until these proposals bad a second time been debated in the House.

"THAT'S a good Loree yon have there," said Mr. Bannhnan-or Westford, as he called himself next morning, to Milligan; "I shouldn't wonder hut what he could give an account of himself in a Bracelet Race or something ; there are races at our neighbor's next month and you ought to have a cut in ; you can nominate within the next week, plenty of time." "Oh! I don't know," replied Milligan, "But Brazenose-that's what I call him-has won several hack races and hurry Bcnrrys. I don't think we will have time ; I think the Boss wants to hurry to Muss'elbrook, where he has an offer for the lot," pointing to the sheep.

CONTINUED FEOM LAST ISSUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 17 May 1892

CONTINUED FEOM LABT ISSUE. JDID not interest myself much in either the conversation or appear ance, after my first curious survey. I finished dinner and left the cabin. At tea I met the professor, or doctor, again. He bowed politely, I might say, even ceremoni ously, from his seat near the head of the table, and did not notice me again through the meal. We were all gathered in tie saloon that night, each endeavoring to amuse his or her individual self before retiring. We were not well enough acquainted as yet to provide entertainment for each other. The eldest daughter of (he vulgarly dressed man I had met at the dinner-table, was carelessly strumming at the piano ; her father and the intimate friend of the family were discussing the markets as they were quoted when they left New York. My neighbor of the loud voice and costume was buried in a number of the Century, while the sedate gentleman in black was engaged in perusing the Christian Era. Suddenly the young man threw down the Ce...

JERICHO PROGRESS ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 17 May 1892

JERICHO PROGRESS ASSOCIATION. Oca correspondent writes on May 14th : Our local Progress Association held their usual monthly meeting on Wednesday night last, winch passed off satisfactorily. I trust the matters taken in hand by them will result in a favorable manner; for instance, a money order office has been applied for, which is badly needed, considering the number of people here and in tile surrounding district, also when tlie wool season is full swing, the want of such an institution is verv apparent, especi ally as we have no bank. The re-establishment of a Court of Petty Sessions is also very neces sary, the time and expense people are put to in going to Barcaldine leaving much cause for complaint, and 1 am inclined to think that offenders against the law are not dealt with in tlie manner they ought to be, chiefly on that account, and the same also applies to the recovery of debts. We are now anxiously waiting the result of the application for a Government loan by the Kargool...
