MITTAGONG LITERARY INSTITUTE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BOWRAL FREE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 28 February 1885
lifTAGOKS fjITEJIARTt INSTITUTE. TO THE ISMTOlt OP THE BOWRAL FREE PRESS. Sir,—"Will you kindly allow me to ask through the colmns of your paper where is the Mittrtgong Literary Institute ? Would it, not be better for it to be made public, and to be held in a place rented for the purpose, say in the temporary Presbyterian Church or the Canterbury Hall. If the committee, or other persons interested, would form it into a reading-room, now that the winter is coming on, I think it would induce many young men to go there and spend an hour or two of a night instead of frequenting the billiard room or public-house. Yoursi &c., MOBALITX, Mitfcagong, Feb. 26.

An Unpopular Institution. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 28 February 1885
An Unpopular Institution. The position of the Parramatta School of Arts is,- saiya the Cumberland Mercury, a most unenviable one, and one that is anything but creditable to Parramatta. The annual meeting has fallen through three times, twice on account of the paucity of attend ance, and on the last occasion on account Of the patriotic meeting. The clashing of this meeting with the school of arts was unavoidable under the circumstances * but tiiere can be little excuse for the lapse of the other meetings. What is the cause of this undesirable state of affairs ? Blame may (as some persons wish to make out) at tach to the managing committee; They may not have done all that they should and could have done to make the institution popular. But the school of arts is what the subscribers and townspeople have made it. Mr. Herbert Coates was no doubt right when he said at the Half-Holiday Association's dinner last week that the school of arts was not supported by employees as it should be. Th...
THE PROPOSED BAND CONTEST. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BOWRAL FREE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 28 February 1885
THE PROPOSED BAND CONTEST. Tb THE EDITOR OF THE BOWRAIi FREE £RESS Sir,—I notice in last week's issiie that some person* sigining himself " Music/' lias sug gested a band contest. It certainly seems that " Music " has not had much experience in bands or contests* for who ever heard of a contest lasting three days ? which seems rather a feat of endurance than skill. I would also ask "Music" what prize he thinks wouid recompense a band for the three days' playing—or is it otlly a plan to enrich the funds of the Agricultural Society? for he wishes the prize to come from public subscriptions instead of the funds of the Yours, &c.j MUSICIAN.
FACTS, FUN, & FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 28 February 1885
FACTS, Flffll, A FANCY* Hhe Ticbbofne claimant has arranged a lectfifmg fconr through America. In England and Wales there is on© medi cal practitioner to every 1562 persons. "If I cannot have the fat of the land I can take a little lean," said a tramp, as he rested his shoulder against a lamp post, It is declared by some medical men that smoking weakens the eyesight. May be it does, but just see how it strengthens the breath. When Clara was asked what she would da if a nice young gentleman would ask her hand in marriage she naively replied, " I tdon't think I?d no/' Bertha; " Grandma, is oor teef good?" Grandma: "No, darling; I've got none now, unfortunately." Bertha : " Then I'll give oo my nuts to mind till I come back." The word " dad" is pure Welsh, and is an interesting survival among us of the ancient British language. The begin ning of the Lord's Prayer in Welsh is " Ein Dad."

Moderate Drinking. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 28 February 1885
Moderate Drinking* The Lancet thinks that it is high time to define what moderate drinking is. It is not drinking in public-houses ; it is not drink ing on the sly; it is not drinking by itself at other than at meal times; it is not drinking to procure sleep or relieve pain. All men, and especially all women,- who do such things, are not moderate drinkers* and had better beware. A moderate drinker takes a very limited quantity once or at most twice a day* with food* such a quan tity us does not make him stupid Or eveti sleepy* such as leaves him cool and unex citecL The moderate drinker takes the lightest forms of alcohol* aiid takes even th^se with care; He knoWS the poWer of alcohol tti produce disease,- and is on the look-out for. any1 indication of harm of ex cess. We do ndt think it proved that such pei'sons become' drunkards; It is terrible, Lower,- to see how soon a dl'tmkard is made by thoughtless drinking, and liow complete is his physical destruction often before he; or pe...
