TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 23 August 1884

TO CORRESPONDENTS, One in Trouble.—Tlio grievance you oomplain oj is certainly very annoying, and happens tt> be one of thoso things a parson finds it difficult to remedy. Some well-to-do people seem to lliinl; tlioy have a perfect right to be accommodated, free gratia, by their more needy friends; hut conduct like {hie lins a little touch of nu -anncss about it, after all. It's a great pity that this class of people—which happily is not numerous —do not put into practice the golden proverb, " Do unto others," «tc. New Chum.—The Bowral Freo Press is not yet issued as a daily.

IRONING FOR AMATEURS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 23 August 1884

IRONING FOR AMATEURS. It is a frequent difficulty with amateurs to obtain tho fine gloss on linen collars and cuffs which is such a distinctive mark of a good ironer. There is an article sold in the chemist's called " linen glaze," in penny packets, which wonderfully facilitates the matter. Borax is also good to mix in the starch, or if boiled staroh be used stir it a few times with the.endof a good wax candle, But the best means to insure success is to use raw starch, mixing it to a smooth paste first,, and then adding as much water as needed for the articles without its being too thin. Do not. merely pass them through ; the ataroh, but with very clean hands rub them as if washing thorn, but not too hard, so that the starch is well soaked in. Ring them or rather nquoeae thorn out, not too tightly, allowing no powdor of the starch to bo seen 011 tho surface. Havo ready a clean oloth folded donblo and long enough to lot the collars lie flat. These should bo placed singly, and the olo...

Select Poetry. FADED VIOLETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 23 August 1884

jsclcrt Hoctrn. FADED VIOLETS. Near a grassy mound, on a mossy bank, A bunch of violets grew: The purple tints in the sunny sky Ne'er matchod their purple hue. They grew together aido by side, Their green leaves round them spread, And one small bud just opened out And showed its purple head. They slightly stirred, as the evening hrccze Touched lightly leaf and flower, And whispered, in an unheard voice, Of mossy bank and bower. But, even as the gentlo wind Had caught their fragrant breath, That tiny bunch of violeta Had passed from life to death. Two lovera stood together there, Alone in the flowery dell, And they had met upon the bank Onoe moro, to say farewell. And from the maiden's upturned face AH traco of oolour fled, And many wore the bitter tears Her soft brown eyes had shed. And we mast say goad-bye, she said. Perhaps to meet no more, . And you will leave your native land To tread some foreign shore. And perhaps you will forget me then, When I no more am near. For there are ...

The following details concerning the locomotive in question have been receiv ed from the office of the Commissioner of Railways by Mr. Madden, the Curator of the MuBeum, who has forwarded them to this office :—It was bo far back as the 33th of January, 1855, or nearly thirty years ago, that the ship John Fielding arrived here with the long-looked-for engine on board, whioh was landed at Campbell's Wharf amid some enthusiasm, and oonveyed on a dray by twenty horses to a spot now oovered by the Eveleigh work-shops, whioh was then known as Slade's paddook.

SHOCKING DISCLOSURES. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 23 August 1884

SHOCKING DISCLOSURES, Extraordinary and sensational disclosures have been made by Archdeacon Farr in the i evidence which ho gave before the Destitute Commission in Adelaide recently. He said that young girls from the reformatory are being constantly sent to Magdalen ward to be treated for venerea) complaints. What is most extraordinary is that several of these unhappy patients have lived six months or a year in the reformatory before tliey enter ed the ward, so that, in many cases at least, the disease must have been oontraoted in the reformatory. The Archdeacon de clares that one young girl informed him that she contracted the complaint by having worn under garments whioli belonged to a diseased girl in the establishment. He con sidered the statement to, be improbable, but he says it shows clearly that the disease was conveyed to her while she was in the refor matory. Archdeacon Farr also drew a har rowing picture of frightful juvenile depravity existing in Pore Adelaide, a locali...

SEVEN TUNNELS IN SEVEN MILES OF RAILWAY, The special reporter of the Illawarra Mercury in describing the second editions of the Il- lawarra railway, recently let to Messrs Rowe and Smith, gives the following particulars about the tunuels that are required in it, being the most difficult piece of railway con- struction yet done in the colony ; the whole section (29½ miles) to cost nearly £500,000 : —At 24½ miles on the line the rough coun- try begins, and the railway construction for the remaining nine miles of the second sec- tion may be said to be nothing but a success- sion of heavy works.
