CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 31 March 1905
CRICEET. The Gininderra Cricket Club de feated Sutton very easily on Satur day on the local wicket. It was practically 'the same team that accounted for our chaps at Sutton a few weeks back, and the two Buck masters had a new experience for this year. They have been bowling very 6nely in all matches they have taken part in. Sutton made 85, the two Buckmasters showing good form. Clifton secured five wickets, and Heazlett and G. Gribble two each. Gininderra then went in, and when the iast wicket fell the tally had reached 359. Clifton 83, T. Gribble 92, and Heazlett 79 not out, displayed fine form. \V. Gribble 35 and Hollingsworth 21 also played soundly. A good lun cheon was provided by Mrs Hollings worth. The scores were as follow : — SlITTOX. C. Duckmaster, st. T. Gribble, b Clifton 23 W.

WHERE THE BISHOP ERRED. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 31 March 1905
WHERE THE BISHOP ERRED. When Bishop Barlow, of; Goulburu, told the Agricul-i tural Socitety members at a smoke concert [and let us say parenthetically that .1 bishop at a smoke concert is a new depar ture] that Socialism was threatening this unhappy land, iind that the said Socialism was wot only ' dangerous and theo retical,' but absolutely ' poi sonous,' he committed an act which iu his calmer and less heated moments he will pro bably regret more than any one else. Of course, at all such functions many wild and irre sponsible things are said, and the saying of them is generall y passed over because it is recog nised that when the usual meaningless toasts are being proposed.and the fumes of much yood whisky and many cheap cigars pervade the atmosphere, and all men are out to jollify things, the utterances of even responsible citizens should not be taken too seriously. But a bishop is expected to rise su perior to all such influences, and we know that Bishop Bar low is above reproac...

LOCAL NEWS. Trucking S[?]p. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 31 March 1905
LOCAL NEWS. Trucking Seaep. Complaints are continually reaching tliis office re the manner in which the car riage of sheen to Sydney by rail is effected. The men who travel with the sheep gener allv find that, between the va-.i which carries them and the sheep trucks, there is a long procession of goods trucks ; and the result is that when stoppages arc made at the various stations, there is no chance of the sheep being looked to, for by the time the men get from their ran to the sheep trucks, the whistle blows, and the train moves o.T again. As a result of such disadvantages, sheep otten die which could lie saved if given projier attention. It is held that some better arrangement might be provided so as to permit the per sons in charge to travel as near to the sheep trucks as possible. *

THE DEATH WATCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 31 March 1905
THE DEATH WATCH. In tlio lnjr house* built by our pioneer faiclatlicrs ihoro could often be heard in the iiiglit when perfect quiet prevailed a uruilnir phenomenon known as tho death waUh. This would be heard fomeirhore in the wall, as one lay in bed, and was nn exact imitation of tho meaBurcd ricking of a watch. Ticket, lichee, tickrc the sounds would com mence, and when perhaps a dozen or twenty tiokB had *bera given, there was silence.'

A World Elsewhere [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 31 March 1905
f A World Elsewhere; Amongst the Russian wounded in the retreat from Mukden were many doctors and Sisters of Charity. Eight of the latter were killed. Russian advices state that the First Army lost none of its guns, was driven from none of its posi tions, and moreover captured seven machine guns and 400 Japanese pri soners. An island of volcanic origin, 4800 yards (rather less than three miles) in circumference, has been thrown up from the sea southwards of Iwo Sima, in the Liu Kiu (or Lu-chu) Archipelago, south of Japan. Within the boundaries of the Wyalong Municipality, the ' stink wort, ' a South Australian noxious plant, has made great headway. The Rev. Dr. Rentoul says the man who rises in the name of one church to smite another church with obloquy and abuse is a miscreant and a traitor. The death is announced of Jules Verne, the celebrated French novelist, in the 78th year of his age. Australasian butter has been ex cluded from the United States of America, on the ground that ...

PRETTr AT A DISTANCE. Tlie lire* of Turkish women are dnll and monotonous iu ihe extreme, . but Friday, being tin- dny they go to mosque or to visit tbeir cemeteries, they often take that opportunity to look at (bo soldiers passing bv.

HOUSEKEEPER THE VIRTUES OF EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 31 March 1905
HOTJSKKEEPER THE VIRTUES OF EGGS. The egg is a Tory useful household remedy, and as it is one ready to hand it should bu more appreciated than it is. For burns and flcalds (which lire apt to oecur in most kitchens) there is nothing more soothiug fur immediate use than tho white of an cgir. It makes a skin over ths burn, in the BOlnc way that collodion does, and is more soothing. In cases of burning the great point is ex cluding the air as much as possible, and to prevent inSammation. As the white of an egg is the best remedy for this, it should be used at once. A fresh egg is one of the best remedies for dysentery. When beaten up lightly and swallowed it tends to soothe tho intestines, and gradualli lessens tbe influm tuation of the etomouli. Sick people will often e wallow tbo yolk of an egg with a fow drops of vinegar, and a little pepper, in the same way they would an uytUx when they have difficulty in inking nourish ment. Amumic patents find an egg boateu up with milk very nouri...
