ARTESIAN DISCOVERIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 17 May 1892
ARTESIAN DISCOVERIES. THE boro at Mr. Richardson's grazing farm, near Barcaldine, was down 526 feet on Friday. At this depth a Becond supply of water was struck, and resulted in a fair stream flowing over the casing. Boring was 6till being con tinued yesterday, and it is to be hoped a larger supply will soon be obtained. The well is adjacent to a large lake in the centre of the farm, and Ute water now obtained ought to keep it full all the year round. It was re ported in Barcaldine on Saturday that 600,000 gallons per diem was the quantity tapped, and that champagne bottles were seen flying through the bar window of Shakespeare's Hotel in honor of the event. The rumor was only very partially true.
CRITERION DRAMATIC COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 17 May 1892
CRITERION DRAMATIC COMPANY. Mn. InvE HAYMAN and bis Criterion Com pany arrived in Barcaldine on Mondav morn ing from Longreach. The Company did very good buB'mesB at the terminus. They opened in Bancke's Hall last night to a well filled bouse, choosing the celebrated drama by H. J. Byron, " Blow for Blow," in which to reappear before a Barcaldine audience. It is needless to say that tile performance was excellent. Mrs. W. I. Hayman made her reappearance after a lengthened absence from Barcaldine, and was well received, her rendering of the dual roles of Mildred Craddock and Sate Petherick prov ine that she has lost none of her old power. This lady is undoubtedly one of the most promising artistes in Australia, and we can surely predict a great future for her. Miss . Daisy Thynne caused a deal of merriment by her delineation of Kitty Wobbler; and Miss Jack Thynne waa very good as Lady Linden. Mr. C. R. Stanford, as Lieut. Linden, gave a fine manly impersonation of the open hearted ge...
AN ERROR OF NAME. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 17 May 1892
AN ERROR OF NAME. IN* tim report of the meeting of the Victoria Hospital Committee last week, it was men tioned that a patient had been received into Hie Hospital in an incurable Estate of delirium, after having been turned out of a public house in that, condition. From enquiries made by the police it appears this statement was quite correct ; but the rumor that the unfortunate man had spent £160 while on the spree was discovered to be exaggerated. He spent about £35, and owed a large sum for drinks supplied. The Barcaldine correspondent of the Capri cornian mentioned the occurrence, and gave thc name of thc deceased as O'Brien, a shoe maker. There are two O'Briens in the shoe making line at Barcaldine, but both these tradesmen arc strong, hearty men who are not dead yet, and certainly never suffered from delirium tremens, aa on Saturday last they both did yeoman service in the football matches. Tlic real name of the patient was John Dunning, a shoemaker, who had for some time been ...
Living on Candles. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 17 May 1892
Living on Candles. ON Tuesday evening, February 9th, con siderable excitement and welcome surprise prevailed at Darton and the immediate dis tricts, consequent on Seth Roberts, a miner, who was supposed to have perished in some disused workings at tile Haigh Moor Colliery, near Barnsley, being restored to his friends. His escape and adventure is a singular one. Roberts, who is about twenty-five years of age, obtained work at the Haigh Moor Col liery, and went there for the first time on Thursday of last week. The coal is won by means of a day hole, and the pit is so safe that it is in some parts worked with eandles. Roberts arrived at the pit about a quarter to six o'clock in thc morning, ready to begin work. He saw the manager's son, who directed him to follow his brother down the dayholc. Roberts did so, but after a time roissed his way, and got into some disused workings. As he did not return home at night ms friends became anxious about him, and made known the fact that he was m...
BARCALDINE POLICE COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 17 May 1892
'&lt; BARCALDINE POLICE COURT. THERE was a scarcity of business at the Police Courts in Longreach and Barcaldine last week. The only case at the latter place was . that of George Edwards on remand for im personation. The evidence was taken of Mr. Peterson as Presiding Officer, and the prisoner remanded for eight days for the attendance of Mr. Haylock, Returning Officer. In this con nection we may remark that as Returning Officer, a purely honorary position, Mr. Hay lock has had to make two journeys of 180 miles each, at his own expense, to give evidence in connection with his office.
The Working Man's Paradise. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 17 May 1892
The Working ICaa'e Paradise. TBTS is the title of the much-advertised novel written by John Miller, the tum de plume ot the editor of the Worker. The novel has no plot, no incident, no story. The reader is dragged to a peep show where, looking' through a dusty glass, he disoems figures of fictitious characters moving hazily about in an aimless, muddled sort of fashion. He hears fragments of conversations about anarchy and sooialism, and all the hackneyed arguments in illustration of thoso doctrines ; with abuse of Governments and capital, and everybody holding different opinions to the few cranks who make up the characters in the book. The scene is laid in Sydney, but the author informs his readers ina preface that this is only done to tone down local coloring. There are four or five marionettes, who, like their prototypes in socialism, are made through their mouthpiece, the author, to do all the talking throughout the piece. They meet in coBey rooms, play the piano, say sweet thing...

The Making of Acrobats. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 17 May 1892
The Making of Acrobats. IT is desirable that readers should clearly understand the system of engagement of shows, and know that any cruelty practised is not by the proprietors or managers of places of amusement-whatever may be their direct responsibility. j In the first instance, the girls are in the hands of trainers, who prepare them by a course of the moBt rigid discipline. When successful-the public knows nothing of the failures-a trainer approaches an agent, who, in consideration of a percentage upon the I earnings of the girls, introduces tho show to theproprietors. The children selected are chosen for the particular work required from them. Taken for contortionists they must begin very ' veiy young, and a terrible time tiley have during the earlier periods of instruction. Most girls, no matter what their ultimate Une I I in the " show" business may be, go through some portion of the contortionists' training "to make them graceful." Young girls for trapeze work are usually tak...
The Drinks of the World. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 17 May 1892
Tita Prinks of tiio "World. Oíros upon a time a poor dervish, living in the deserts of Arabia, noticed that his flock returned home every evening in a state of unaccountable hilarity. The phenomenon puzzled him immensely, and he proceeded to try to discover the cause. He watched his goats one day, and found them feeding on the branches and berries of a small tree. The dervish seems to have been of an ex perimental turn of mind, for he decided that the best thing he could do in order to solve the mystery was to see if the berries would have the same effect on his own spirits as on those of the lower animals. So he made a hearty meal of the fruit and leaves of the shrub, and he became as jocund as his own goats. The story goes on to relate how his wife and friends failed to understand the reason of this remarkable elevation of spirits, and roundly accused the dervish of being intoxi cated. In order to prove his innocence of this charge the offender could only produce the leaves and be...
What People Say. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 17 May 1892
i What People Say. " TBTJTH is stranger than Fiction," so people say, but such truth os we received from T. Channon, Esq.., Photographer, Nowra, N.B. W., is only a sample of what comes to hand by every mail from all parts of Australia. Mr. Channon speaks for himself, " I was one of the first attacked by La Grippe at Nowra. The symptoms-sneezing, running at nose, weak, watery eyes, frontal headache, as if the brain wanted to press through, the pain was almost constant, restless sleep, poor ap petite, constipation, foul tongue, constant expectoration of yellow greenish phlegm, burning prickling feeling in the chest, great weakness and pain at the nape of the neck, water-dark brown, I tried to rise but was too weak, and had to lie down again. Whilst at the worst, I read of the curative properties of Clements Tonic, and was induced to try it, although eceptical about advertised remedies, and after a few doses I felt much better, so much that I wrote you, asking advice, which you promptl...

CLOSING ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 24 May 1892
CLOSING ROADS. Ont correspondent, " Nemo," whose letter from Jundali appeared in our last issue, tele graphed to us on Saturday, stating that "drovers had informed him that in many parts of the colony Divisional Boards have closed and altered roads, notably in the Bulloo Division." This may be the case, but if so the Hoards are acting- entirely on their own respon sibility. We know of several cases in which Divisional Hoards altered the direction of sur veyed roads, but their action was illegal. Until due notice has been given to all parties concerned and to the general public no road can be either altered or declared closed, and the Minister for Lauds has alone authority to close a road. The road surveyed by 'he Government from Blackall to liarcaldine v. ;is , altered by the Kargoolnah Divisional Hoard, but without authority. No objections, how ever, have been made by the lessees .(!f the run through which the road passes, of by the travelling public, to the deviations, juul it is ...
TAMBO TIT BITS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 24 May 1892

" LORD" Vane Tempest pleaded guilty to the charge of obtaining goods under false pretences at Tambo, and was sentenced to three months imprisonment, but released under the First Offenders Probation Act.-A correspondent of the liarcoo Independent says that the Tambo Carriers' Association is progressing, and there are now 51 carriers registered, nearly enough to do all the work of the district. Ho further says the agent of the C.Q.C. Union threatens ?with noisy menace any carrier who is not of his way of thinking, but the carriers reply they intend to mind their own business and not be subjected to a Barcaldiue clique. [Our latest information was that the meeting to form an Association had fallen through, but if this news is correct there must have been some further action taken since Mr. Young and Mr. Hoare left Tambo,-ED. ]
LOCAL AND TRAIN TIME. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 24 May 1892
LOCAL AND TRAIN TIME. The post office at Barcaldine is now keeping local time, which is about half-an-hour behind Rockhainpton or railway time. The change lias given riBe to some very awkward mistakes. One gentleman received an urgent telegram from Longreach, informing him that his mother in-law was dying, or that the Thompson was on fire, or something of that description. Ho glanced at the post office clock, corrected his watch, and went off happy in the belief that he had half-an-hour in which*to have liis bath and pack a portmanteau before the arrival of the train. Having dressed himself he walked leisurely to the railway station having twenty five minutes to spare, as his watch by post office calculation announced the time to be 1.40 p.m., and tlie train did not start until 2.5 p.m. His disappointment may therefore be imagined when he readied the station to see the train in the dim distance and the station clock pointing to 2.10 p.m. The mailbags, which have to remain open until...
