KRUPP GUNS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 19 February 1902
KRUPP GUNS. The first Krupp steel gun, says the ' St. James' Gazette,' is more than half a century old. It was tried in Paris, and with such success that the last Napoleon wanted 800 of them at once. Herr Krupp refused the order, and 20 years later his gun played havoc with the Empire of Napoleon, working with deadly effect at the siege of Paris. Ten years after that event, the first 100-ton steel gun was shown at Dussendorf, and since then the Krupp works have never known un idle day. All the world over the guns, have gone. The first big consign ment was to the Khedive of Egypt. To day there are 25,000 guns in 84 States, all made at Essen, and what this means, or may one day mean, may be imagined from the fact that the first gun of a certain type took six months of nights and days to make, and cost over £20,000.
ARTIFICIAL TEETH MADE NATURAL. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 19 February 1902
ARTIFICIAL TEETH MADE NATURAL. A Russian druggist has made a dis covery which promises to revolutionise modern dentistry. He has found a method by which artificial teeth can be made to attach themselves more firmly and permanently to the jaws than the natural teeth whose place they take. The teeth, which are of metal, porcelain, or gutta-percha, are perforated in several places at the root, and corresponding holes are made in the jaw of the recipient. When the teeth have been in position for a little time it is found that they are connected with the jaw by means of a growth, which strenghtens and hardens until the tootb can be inserted and filed months, or even years, after the natural ones have disappeared. The necessity of having holes bored in the jaws is a formidable drawback to a really valuable discovery.
GERMANY AND THE WEST INDIES. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 19 February 1902
GERMANY AND THE WEST INDIES. A correspondent telegraphing to .'The Times ' from New York on May 6, says: ' It is general talk here that German; is endeavouring to extend her sphere of influence to the West Indies, and rumours are'afloat that it is sought to accomplish this by obtaining a footing in one or two of these islands. The latest rumour is that the Germans are desirous of acquiring the rights of an American company here which for years has been the collector of the revenue in one of those islands with powers resembling those of the Caisse de la Dette in Egypt, the ultimate object of this scheme being to establish a coaling station in that island, which is known to possess one of the finest bays in the world.
GAVE HIM THE CHOICE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 19 February 1902
GAVE HIM THE CHOICE. The late Mr. Archibald Forbes, the famous war correspondent, began hiB career as a lecturer at a small town in Scotland. He was very nervous, and asked the janitor at the hall to let him in by a side door in order thut he might avoid the crash. 'Yeneed na mind,' replied the func tionary ; ' there's na crood.' This was no more than the truth. A bored commercial traveller, he found, composed the audience. Forbes waited awhile, and no one else approaching, he said to the ' audience'— ' Will you have the lecture, or will you have a drink V ' A drink,' said the traveller.

Dr. Muskett's New Work. THE ILLUSTRATED AUSTRALIAN MEDICAL GUIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 22 February 1902
Dr. Muskett's New Work. ILLUSTRATED AUSTRALIAN 'MEDICAL GUIDE. It happens to many of ns in' horaelife, in tlie city, sometimes in the township, but more often at a distance from both, where a doctor ia ouly available after a long ride or drive, that weary hours of siisponso and anxiety are endured, both by frieud and patient, aud that a malady becomes aggra vated from want of prompt and intelligent, attention,, or of hoiiio simple remedy to re lieve p'aia, or stay the advance of sickness, Many lives are now yearly saved through the excellent sj'stern of popular instruction imparted; by First Aid As-ociatioiiF, but this refers almost exclusively to accidents and iujurias requiring surgical treatment. No book, however, has yet been published which treats of the many diseases to which Australian flesh is heir. Certainly there are household medical works of excellence, but these are Dot written for Australians. These clever authors were ignorant of the conditions of life that provailher...

WATER SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 22 February 1902
WATER SUPPLY. The initial steps have been taken to wards providing this.town with a supply of pure fresh water ; an engineer having been sent down a' fortnighi ago by the Water and Sewerage Board who made the necessary surveys and computations when everything we are given to under stand connected with the scheme proved highly/favorable. The supply is to be drawn from the Nattai Creek; which has its source from the Gib hill. The flow of water in the stream at the present time is equal to. 300 gallons per hour, which is satisfactory considering that this is the driest season that has been experienced within the recollection of the oldest resi dent, and the driest we are likely to have for. many years to come. This supply, with a reservoir capable of storing a few million gallons, it is estimated, would serve Mittagong until the population reaches ten times what it is at present. On the site where it is proposed to, con struct the reservoir a bottom of solid rock has been struck at a d...

THE- FREE PRESS, Published in Bowral, Alittagong, and Robertson. Saturday, February 21, 1902. DIVORCE, The bonds of matrimony would seem to. be borne with great reluctance in New South Wales. At any rate, there is a steady boon? in dissolutions, and a sub stantial deciirie in marriage ceremonies. Here are a few figures which indicate the breaking up. of the happy ho'meOne marriage in 36 is sundered in New South Wales; 1 in 74 in Victoria ; 1 in 263 in Tasmania; x in 400 in South Australia; 1 in 435 in Queensland: 1 in 555 in West Australia. This heavy lead in New South Wales is only excelled in Switzerland and certain American States. In the United Kingdom the proportion is 1 m 909, while in Canada it is as light as one in 2500. The facility with which the married couples may let themselves loose on so 1 ciety in this country was secured by the late Sir Alfred'Stephen, whose experience of divorce laws and practice, extended over 50 years. The late chief justice took the view that it...

Garden Fete. The annual Qarden Fete in connection with SS. Simon and Jude's Church, Bow ral, was held in the gVounds of Meril bah " (kindly lent by flliss B.renap), last Wednesday afternoon and evening. The spot chosen for the fete was an ideal one. Gaily decorated and well-stocked stalls, | distributed among the beautiful trees and | foliage of the place, presented quite a pic turesque appearance. Flags arid bunting were'also suspended between the trees, adding greatly to the scenic display. As the time of opening approached, and long after, a continual stream of carriages, cabs, and sociable^ released their occu pants in the vicinity of the fete, the atten dance for the day being very large. Mr. Joe Gregory's sociables, which were pro j vided gratis, were freely availed of, the drive being much appreciated, as the day I was exceedingly hot.

HANDLING FARM YARD MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 22 February 1902
HANDLING FARM YARD MANURE. Upon this subject a correspondent of £he " American Agriculturalist " writes ; —" I have obtained the best results by hauling out manure and making in piles in the autumn, when other work is not crowding. I clean out my-stables thor oughly, adding all the loose chaff and straw of the thrashing yard. It is not at all necessary that the straw be rolled when put out. I put five loads in a heap. With a road scraper I go over the farm yard, and with the scrapings cover the heaps to a depth of about 6 inches, leav ing them flat on top, that through the winter the'water may soak in and rot the ;■ manure.- After ploughing in the spring I fun the harrow over to level the ground, then spread the manure and earth from 'the heaps. It gels well mixed in the handling. I spread as evenly as posbible, then go over with a cultivator and follow this with a harrow. This leaves the ground in as fine'condition as can he des-. ired. This past season, on land prepared this way, ...
