Local Grievances. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 5 September 1902
JLocal €}rfiev«ftuces. The Mclntyre Herald strikes at a sore point in country journalism in a most emphatic manner in its last issue. Each country town has a similar grievance, and the local editor is supposed to be ubiquitous, toadying, and altogether unscrupulous. He is supposed to pander to any person who sends in a one-issue advertisement of an inch, and to any meansouled man who writes a venomous article under the inevitable nom de plume. The Herald writes as follows : — ' Ping Ponger. — There is no reason why a newspaper man any more than the ordinary resident should be called upon to be present at every little affair if his tastes do not lie in that direction, but simply that they should be re ported. Our columns are available for any interesting item, but if the secretaries of clubs, promoters of tournaments, &c., do not think it worth their trouble to supply us with a written report, then the fault lies with tfiem and not with us.) That is the practice elsewhere, ot...

Strange Discovery. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 5 September 1902
Strange Discovery. A few days ago, says the Narrabri Hkrat.I), Mr. Charles Capel, of Gorian, related to as a curious ex perience he had met with. On his Gorian holding he, had a number of fairly strong wethers, which even under the existing adverse circum stances should not have been dying to any great extent. However, they were dyiDg pretty freely, a fact which j somehow puzzled him, and to en- ! deavour, if possible, to ascertain the t cause, he held a post-mortem examina tion upon one fairly good specimen, and to his amazement found that the stomach of the sheep, had been trans formed into a miniature nursery for the propagation of trefoil, the plants growing luxuriantly, while the root ramifioations bad discovered fevery crevice of the animal's stomach. This, we believe, is a most unique experience, and one. to which Mr. Capel attributes the loss of many valuable sheep.

I . -T. 1 ~ Tlie Late irooper H- S. ; Slierrln^liam. ?— 0-' . In the Legislative Assembly on Friday, Dr. Ross asked the Colonial Secretary : — 1.

Pleasant Incident. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 5 September 1902
Pleasant Incident. — o— Theue is a current story of the late war which illustrates the better ahd more humane side of the straggle. It concerns General Lucas Meyer, who was afterwards one of tbe delegates. One of the English officers captured in the early stages of the war had been severely wounded, and was taken to Pretoria and lodged in I General Meyer's houses where he was 1 treated with great hospitality. Meyer - I made a flying visit to his home and 1 made the acquaintance of the English §j officer, with the result that a genuine 9 friendship sprang up between them. 1 One morning Meyer announced he 1 was going on commando, adding that 1$ hft triiRtad mfiof 'Ann nffiiur anotn II under happier circumstances. In | this way they parted, but the sequel 1 is almost romantic, for the wife of § Lucas Meyer is now in England,' and 1 is tbe object of reciprocal hospitality 9 from the family jit the English officer. 1

American Progress. Ahekican progress has deeply im pressed Max O'Rell.

Tbe Treasury at Washington is cbokiug, tbe com mercial activity is boundless and tbe intelligence and the ingenuity of tbe Americans are beyond competition.
