EXCURSION TRAINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 24 May 1892

EXCURSION' TRAINS. THE monthly excursion trains are being persevered with by the Railway Commissioners in the hope that by and by the public will patronise them. The excursion train from Kockhampton left that, place yesterday, and the excursions from Longreach to llarcaldine run 011 Thursday. The fares are £2 5s. first class return and £1 8s. sccond class return from Hnrcaldine to Itockliainpton and from other places in proportion. Tickets are avail able for four weeks, Considering the largo passenger traffic between Longreach and Bar caldine tlic Commissioners would be justified in putting on excursion trains between those places, and we hope, in view of the forth coming annual race meeting, the Secretaries of the local clubs will not forget to ask for special trains and cheap fares for both days of meet ings.

FORESTRY AT LONGREACH. Wk learn that it is proposed to form a Court of Forestry at Longreach, W. Bros. P.C.R.'s Leyland and James having been deputed by " Court, Friar Tuck," Barcaldine, to visit Long reach with that object in view.

STOCK AND STATION REPORT. CHAMPION Office, Monday. 10 p.m. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 24 May 1892

STOCK 9 STATION REPORT. CHAMPION Office, Monday. 10 p.M. THK weather since last report has been vari able. The rains which fell on Monday evening were very heaxy to the east of the town, although only 1.26 in. was recorded in Uarcal dine. The total rainfall was 3.74 in. The next day the weather cleared. It was very cloudy on Saturday and Sunday, and it appeared as if a further downpour was imminent, but the clouds cleared away on Sunday night, and cold weather is again the order of the day or rather night. There is not much loading going forward, although the stocks of flour and sugar for Bowen Downs shearing arrived dur ing the week. The quantity of wool despatched by train from Barcaldine during the week was only 104 bales, of which 88 wore from Coreenn, ana 38 from the Woolscouring Works. Our estimate of 30,000 bales for 1892 is in accord with that of the Railway Department, who anticipate a total tonnage from Barcaldine of 5000 tons. Last year the tonnage was 6887 for eleven mon...

Notes and Comments. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 24 May 1892

Utofes and dtanmtk THE Worker says that "most of the labor papers in London lmve a precarious existence and unceremonious funeral. The latest to be snuffled out is the Trade Union ist." IT is estimated that there are from 600 to 700 men out of employment in and around Broken Hill, the chief cause it is said, being the shortness of water, and the present low price of silver. A BUNDABERG correspondent of the Qneenslandcr says that a kanaka living at Gin Gin has 43 acres of land under maize, and expects to reap a bountiful harvest shortly, on the strength of which he has bought his wife (a kanaka woman) a side saddle and bridle. IT is said that Mr. Bockephellar, the American millionaire, rakes in £150 an hour, or £1,387,000 a year, by the sale of oil. On his own personal expenses, so far as hair oil and tooth brushes are concerned, the millionaire probably does not spend so much as a linen draper's assistant at £150 a year. THERE were three nominations for the appointment of Speaker of...

This is only intended as a temporary expedient, and will bs abandoned as soon as the settlers are able to purchase proper piping to force the water throng from the pump to a reservoir on the highest ground on the settlement.

CONCERT IN AID OF STATE SCHOOL FUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 24 May 1892

CONCERT IN AID OF STATE SCHOOL FUNDS. IT liming been ascertained by a number of lady and gentlemen amateurs that the sum of £40 was required to bo raised before any stops would be taken re the establishment of a State School at Longreacb, it was decided by them to give a grand concert early next month to raise the required amount. Judging from the quantity of talent, both vocal and instrumental, to be found in Longreacb. it would be impossible to say the concert will be otherwise than a great success, and that the amount will be more than raised. The pro gramme, which we understand haB been well selected, will appear in a future issue.

Original Poetng. AT DAYBREAK. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 24 May 1892

AT DAYBREAK. Not risen yet P * Ah ! Love, all nature lives: The breaking day a tender tinting gives To flow'rets dew-drops wet. Thy lids are down. Thy sapphire eves are liid; Awoke, and list! all earth's dear children bid That thou their glories crown. AriBe, sweet love ! And join earth's waking prayer ; .Come, waft it thro' the heaven blue and bare Unto God's feet above. She ne'er will rise To greet the glowing morn: To see the ripened blossoms earthward borne By zephyrs soft as sighs. Her stilly form Lies wrapt in sleep of Death. That angel sweet has caught and held her breath During the past night's stornj. One snowy arm Above her head is thrown; The dark fringed lids have fluttered softly down In Death's unchanging calm. Her lovely face Scarce paled-her curling hair In beauteous mesh lies round her everywhere, Veiling her form's rich grace. Perfumes of earth Float wailing on the breeze, And tho' my love has gained a sweeter birth, Tnara enarlrta nn t.hf* trAPR.

A PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEM. (" JACK THE HIPPER.") BY DR. N. OLIVEHJ Author of "THE KING OP GOLD," "CONVICT 72," " ALMEDA," ETC. - ? CONTINUED FB021 LAST ISSUE. N the morning of the 20th we slowly steamed up the River Mersey. We were at our journey's end. Our pas sage had been a long one, thirteen days ; and an unlucky one the sailors said. After the night of the mesmeric exhibition, which had impressed ns all so much, tbe weather wbicb had been delightful, suddenly changed ; we were tossed upon tbe angry waters in storm ; we broke a shaft and were delayed for days. " The devil is on board," the superstitious sailors muttered. Tliey had heard of the ex hibition, and it bad had a bad effect upon tbem ; bat the sun came out again, tbe dam age was repaired, and the mighty vessel reached her destination in safety five days .overdue. I did not feel like myself for some days aiter my experience in mesmerism. My head ached : my brain seemed incapable of thought. I felt singularly depressed, bu...
