Had Wings, But Couldn't Fly. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 15 July 1899
Had Wings, But Couldn't Fly. At an examination m a village school a class of infanta waa being questioned on natural history. After several questions, the inspector asked : 1 What bird that comes from Africa has wings but cannot fly 1' The class was dumbfounded. Thinking to encourage them, the inspector offered a sixpence to the little boy or girl who could tell him. After a few seconds' hesitation, a little girl of four years put out her hand. 'Well, my little dear,' aaid the inspector, ' what is it?' 'Please, air, a dead 'un 1'
Like a Sausage. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 15 July 1899
Like a Sausage. Somo time ago the writer was sitting at homo with the rest of the family, enjoying a book in front of a blazing fire, when his sister entered with a little dot; under her arm. ' What ho !' said a younger brother ; ' here comes a freak from Barnum's 1' ' How dare you ?' said hia sister. ' He's a nice little fellow. I've just bought him for ten shillings from a man up the street ; but he told me that he is not a thoroughbred dog. Tho next thing ia to find a name for him.' The witty youngster didn't give the others any chance, for he cried out : ' Let's call him 'Sausage.' ' ' Ridiculous 1' said the owner. 'How can you call him 'Sausage!' There is no sense or meaning to the name.' ' Oh, yes, there iB,' eaid her brother. ' You said he wob a half-bred dog. Well, what ia a saasage? — nothing but haH-bre(a)d.' Heedless to say we all enjoyed the joke, and up to the present day the terrier is still called ' Sausage.'
A Hopeless Attempt. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 15 July 1899
A Hopeless Attempt. The occasion was a horse-stealing case, and the witness was an ostler, who alleged that he had been at work alone in the stable-yard when the man who had stolen the horse came in. Counsel, in cross-examination, tried to get at the exact words of the con versation that followed. Counsel: 'You were in the stable yard at work, and defendant came in. Well, what then ?' Witness : ' When I seed 'un come in, I ses, see 1, 'How about that boss!' and ho Bed he'd give me ten shillings to zay nothing about 'un.' Counsel : 'He did not say he would give you ten shillings.

Chinese Ladies and English Society. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 15 July 1899
Chinese Ladies and English Society. Chinese ladies have hitherto tot entered London society, and wo have rarely had the opportunity of seeing them in our streets and parks. The wife of the present Chinese Minister is, however, making a new departure. Sho is learning English as fast as sho can, and is to bo formally presented at the next Drawing Room this year. She intends, with tho assistance of Lady Macartnoy, tbe wife of the English Secretary, to mix freely in society, and it is to be expected that her plucky action will have tho effect of breaking down much prejudice ou the part of hor compatriots against English customs.
England's Commodities. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 15 July 1899
England's Commodities. England has become the distributing mart for tho produce of tho world. Ships of all nations are found at her wharves, and commodities from all parts of tho world brought in those ships are found in her warehouses. Her mercantile navy numbers 21,000 vessels, and 8,000 of these are steamships. The tonnage of these vessels amounts to over 8,750,000 tons, and of this nearly 8,000,000 is engaged in the foreign trade alono. Her mercantile sailors number over 250,000 men, and over 150,000 of these are en gaged in tho foreign trade. London is, of course, the chief gainer from this unrestriction of trade. 27 per cent, of the whole trade of tho country is in its hands. Its merchants do business in every eeapott on the globe, and tho trade of Great Britain with ports in Europe, the Levant, Egypt, India, the East Indies, China, Japan, and Australasia is almost entirely controlled by them. Its shipping embraces tho finest trading fleets known to commerce. Its docks and wha...
Was Pilate Scotch? [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 15 July 1899
Was Pilate Scotch? It is claimed by some that Scotland was the birthplace of the famous Pontius Pilate. ? According to an old Perthshire tradi tion, the Roman ruler.of Judea was born at Glenlyon, not far- from the place where the ancient yew tree of Portingall has flourished, as say the experts in arboriculture, for 3,000 years. According to the legend, an embassy was sent to Scotland by Cmsar Augustus shortly before tho birth of Christ. One of the embassadors was the father of Pontius Pilate. Tho Romans were courteously received by Metallanus, a Caledonian chief, and were conducted to his residence near Fortingall. By a rather unusual circumstance, it appears that the mother of Pontius Pilate bad accompanied her husband on this embassy, and in Perthshire gave birth to the future Governor of Judea.
Gert and Her Machine. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 15 July 1899
Gert and Her Machine. It was a windy day in March When Gort got her machine, The sort of day when curls need starch, And many were the glances arch, When Gert got her machine. The neighbours all looked out to Bee, When Gert got her machine. Her wild gyrations towards a tree Filled their unholy souls with glee, When Gert got her machine. Nine little boys sat on the fence, When Gert got her machine. They saw her fall with grief intense, And watch'd her ride with joy immense When Gert got her machine. But little work was done that day, When Gert got her machine. Folks couldn't keep their eyes away, And some felt there was need to pray, When Gert got her machine.
DAIRY NOTES. The Improvement of New South Wales Stock. PART IV. The South Coast Cattle. The Illawarra Durhams. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 15 July 1899
DAIRY NOTES. The Improvement of New South Wales Stock. From the Agricultural Gazette of A' S. W. ? o ? By M. A. O'Oai.i.aohan. PART IV. The South Coast Cattle. The Illawarra Durhams. The South Coast cattle, according to tho best authorities, originated from crossing tho Holstein, Ayrshire,, and Durham breeds. Thou the farmers, finding those of the Durham type the most suitable for their requirements, favoured this breed tor sires, and thus in timo the principal featuros of evidence of the other breeds disappeared, and what is known as a grade Durham is the result. Had the farmers persevered in their breeding without the recent intro ductions of Ayrshiro blood, as I believe some breeders have done, a new breed of cattle capable of transferring in all cases their characteristics to their pro geny might have been introduced to the world. Even now, I think if tho best specimens of the South Coast cattle of the old type were collected and mated to an imported Durham bull (which would giv...

THE BUCCANEER BROTHER. .-. The words of the daring man, who had so boldly kidnapped him and brought him aboard of his vessel, caused Dr. Barton to utter a cry of commingled amazement, horror, and pain. He started back, holding up his hands as though to ward off some gum spectre, while he cried : 1 you! You my brother !' ? 'Yes, I am your brother, Basil Barton, and I should think I had given you cause enough to remember I me,' was' the cool reply. 1 Ha 1 Do you dare gloat over the cause you have given, and fling it in my teeth ? Do you dare do this, Basil ?' All unarmed though he was, and within the power of his brother, Dr. Barton stepped forward and laid his hand heavily upon the other's shoulder, ? while he looked with blazing eyes into his race.

Something About Tides. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 15 July 1899
Something About Tides. According to tho law of universal gravitation the moon attracts matter which stands near to her more strongly tlinn that which is more remote. It follows that the attraction on the ocean, at the side of the earth, which is nearest to tho moon, must be greater than that exercised on the solid earth itself. Henco there is a tendency for the sea to depart from its natural spherical shape and to bulge outward towards the moon. So far the matter is simple, but it is perplexing to many that the moon should apparently repel the water lying on the further side of the earth. This action, however, is not due to any actual repulsion from tho moon, but results from the fact tliat on the further side the moon must attract tho solid earth more strongly than it . does the water. On the nearer side tbe moon pulls the water away from the earth, and on tho further side she pulls tbe earth away from the water, thus producing an apparent repulsion of the water to on extent equal ...
Lord Nelson and the Duke of Wellington. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 15 July 1899
Lord Nelson and the Duke of Wellington. Years after the Battle of Waterloo, someone asked the Duke if he had any idea what number of guns he had taken in his life. 'No,' ho replied, 'not with any ac curacy; somowhere about three thousand I should guess. At Oporto, after the passpge of the Douro, I took the entire siege train of the enemy ; nt Vittoria and Waterloo, I took every gun which they bad in the Geld. What, however, IB the most extraordinary, I don t think I ever lost a gun in the field. After tho battle of Salamanca, three of my guns, attached to some Portuguese cavalry, were captured in a I rifling nffair near Mndrid, but they were recovered tho next day. In the Pyrenees, Lord Hill found lrmself obliged to throw eight or nine guns ovor a precipico, but these also were recovered, and never fell into tho enemy's hands.' A few months after Wellington had given up his Indian command, bo bad occasion to call on one of the Cabinet Ministers, and, in the ante-rooms, ho met a one-...
Down South. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobar Herald — 15 July 1899
Down South. Some people complain al out Cobav summer, the dust and flies, and some tin.es thinks this the most undesirable place in the universe to live. On the ,bouth coast they have a lively, ex hilirating climate, but to some there are circumstances undesirable. In last week's Bulletin, the following description of a farm hand's pro gramme appenred, and it is very true, minus the reference to dog's meat : — He ' turns out' at 5 a.m., makes fire, gropes around gullies after cows, which are yarded at 6. Then milks for two hours, and has hardly sat down to breakfast before he is hurried away to separate milk. Separates, feeds pigs and poddies, catches and harnesses moke, and away with milk to catch train. Back with ' empties' at 11, washes cans, and off to dig spuds, after which yo ks up bullocks, and fetches load or two of wood from ranges. After dinner, cuts couple of waggon-. oads of greenstuff, and dis tributes h about paddock for cows; ploughs a bit, and rides two miles to P.O....

General Notes. At the Chesney matters have beon delayed considerably for want of tim ber. The manager, Mr Roberts, on Wednesday, made a special visit down the line owincr to this, and tve under stand ho will have all he requires on the mine this week. The foundation of the concentrator-house is being laid, and the excavation of a sump tank has beon commenced. The poppet heads have been completed ? as far as possible at present. Much rnoie can not bo done to them until the timber ing of tho shaft is completed, as the old poppet legs are required to keep that work going. Nearly 200ft of timbering has yet to be done. On the ground there are about 16 tons of galvanised iron. This should give roadors an idea of tho size of the structures to be erected. The new offices are nearing completion.
