THE BOWRAL FREE PRESS. and MITTAGONG, BURRAWANG, AND KANGALOON ADVOCATE SATURDAY, JANUARY 26, 1884. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 26 January 1884
THE: B 0 WR AL F R E,E. FRE S. S,. . and' Sîittaooko, Botiutvaxo, A3JD Eanoaloon Advooatb SATüBDAY, JANUARY 26,1884.. Pis. Taiuunt's Medical Bill now before Par liament stands, a very good chance, so far, of being numbered with the slaughtered innocents, like many a well-intended- mea sure before it. Already the correspondence from various sources, professionaLand non professional, has become t^tmlky even for tha wealthy columns of tho S. 21. Herald ; and once the Bill gets fairly before the talking and criticising powers of the Legis lative Assembly, it will be managed in sue)i a manner as to puzzle the framer to recog nise its original features. The principle ob ject of the'bill is to putastop to incompetent and unqualifiedperson s practising as a doc tor, as a physician, as a " duly qualified medical pi*actitoner," unless they have the necessary diplomas. • In other words, to suppress quackery, and to confine the practice of the healing art to its legimate and authorised professo...
SPARROWS AS FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 26 January 1884
SPARROWS AS POOD. The English sparrow, whero ho baa become habituated, is usually regarded as a nuisance to bo abated or a pent to be oxtirpated, In deed, one öüito, Mossachusottos, has ouac tod a statuo against these small birds, to encourage their thinning out, if not thoir extermination. Whatever may bo the value of tho nparrow alive, there is but or.o opinion about him when d-'iid. The sparrow—or plouLy of him—•maltes delicious pies. In Germany and ¿11 England tho sparrow is a game bird, ami is sought after as food. Ho is so tamo that his capture requires very little skill, and after grain gathering ¡11 August ho swarms on the stubble so that one chargo of Hue shot would bring down a number of birds. « •

CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR OF TUE PREIS PIÎKR3. Sir,—It íh not often that luiyono feels disappointed ¡11 visiting Bowral on a holiday, particularly when there is ft full programme of sports, but I tbinlc any. ono who was unfortunate enough to bavc como any distance on Saturday last to witness the Oddfellows' demonstration must feel very rnuuh dissatisfied. Whatever the Oddfellows may be ns a society I am not capable of saying, bul I am sure they have very little idea of entertaining the public, or otherwise they would have provided some kind of refreshments on tho grounds. It is not n pleasant thing, particiv larly with a family of children, to sit and watch sports without being able to supply the inner man with something. I fancy the fruit dealers round Bowral had not a very high opinion of tho success of the society or otherwise sonrio o i them would have ventured on tho grounds. It would be well before they have another demonstration to tako a lesson and make some provision fo...

Tbo pieces produced were the comic dramas " Look before you Leap " and " Furnished Apartments," the former being placed on the boards first. The performers, having been introduoed to the audience by the President of the Club, Mr. .T. V. Hanrahan, the curtain rose amidst applause to an old and miserably-furnished room representing an apartment in the house of John Gnbbina eonr, aged 60, a miser, (Mr. John Byaras.) This character was sustained admirably, the make-up disfiguring the performer beyond recognition. Mr. W.
