Boxing. On Saturday night Tom Cole, of Orange, and Joe Campbell, of Watta mandars, met at the Centennial Hall, when the latter, alter receiving a good deal o£ punishment, 'skied the towel in the sixteenth round. Mace Maker, as referee, had very little to do, both men being good clean boxers. * * Prior to the above contest Cole ac cepted a challenge issued by Walter Campbell to box him in a fortnight's time. The Rev. Gordon Tidy, who acted as locum tenens at the Anglican Cathed ral, Bathurst, during Dean Marriott's visit to England, was received into the Catholic Church on Friday night by the Rev.

ULSTER'S BLOOD UP. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 4 March 1911
ULSTER'S BLOOD UP. "An Ulster Man Who Will Fight" writes to the "Pall Mall Gazette" as fol lows :-"Ulster would certainly resist by force of arms, not passively, but actively, any attempt of a criminal House of Com mons to place the Government of Ireland in the hands of the disloyal faction. God grant that the occasion may never arise, but if, unhappily, it should, there'will flock at once to tho aid of Ulster thou sands of non-resident Irishmen in whom still lives the same spirit that animated their heroic defenders of Londonderry in 1689. Not an officer or man of tlio British army would consent to fire upon the loyalists, and as for*tlie chiefly half hearted mobs collected by the terrorists, they would speedily be scattered like so much chaff within six --weeks after the opening of hostilities. Tho Loyalist forces would hold all Ireland in trust for the -King, and many knaves -would have suffered on the gallows. As your military correspondent wrote 011 January lOtli, 'Thus would H...
RIGHT WAY OF READING. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 4 March 1911
RIGHT WAY OF BEADING. I remember no remark which was of more personal service to me than a few words used by the present Secretary of State for India, which I read years ago in .-his "Life of Richard Cobden." Speaking of that distinguished mail, Mr. Morley said that " When he read a book he read it as ail reading should bo done, with a view to life and practice, and not in the way of refined self-indul gence." Tliueydides had very much the same idea when dedicating his "History of the Peloponnesian "War"-"To those who de sire to have a true view of what has hap pened, and of tile like of similar things which in accordance with human naturo will probably hereafter happen." What I think Tliueydides and Mr. Morley both meant was, that to read in what may be called tlie ordinary way, ev en with a desire to accumulate some knowledge of facts, is of 110 practical use, unless it is coupled witli an effort to ap ply what we read to tho living facts around us. In this connection it is intere...
QUEER FISH AND ITS WATER GUN. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 4 March 1911
QUEER FISH AND ITS WATER GUN. Attention 1ms been before now attract ed to a queer specios of fish called tho archer, which captures its prey by tho uso of wh'at might- be called a, water guti. It shoots bullets of water with doadly aim at insects on adjacent plants, and, having thus knocked them down, prompt ly" gobbles them up, If tho first .shot is not effective it discharges bullet after bul let. It is able to shoot with accuracy from a distance of a foot or perhaps twenty inches-sometimes oven twico that far. The insect, if not knocked off tho leaf instantly, is quickly drenched by a shower of such shots, and falls into tho water. A well known-Russian scientist, Dr. Zolotnitsky, has been making experi ments witii these little fishes, which are only five or sis inches long, in an aquari um. Hp observes that, instead of the ex pressionless stare which is characteristic of fishes generally, the archer's eyes sparkle with intelligence. Although chiefly day-feeders, the archers are a...
OUR SHORT STORY LIFE IN A HUMPY. A Sensational Night. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 4 March 1911
OUR SHORT STORY LIFE IN A HUMPY. A Sensational Night, .. . (By VAL JAMESOlf.)' 7' ; The people of Nuggetvitfe .were re turning from church. Those impressed by tlie sermon discussed its application to their daily lives and renewed mental, resolutions toward spiritual improve ment. Others who, in vanity and self righteousness, had allowed the minis ter's words to slip over a greased sur face like ducks in a shower of rain, chattered amicably on mundane affairs. But all were, in scattered groups, proceeding to their homes on the resid ence areas, lighted on their way by a three-quarter moon, whose serene in fluence aided the sermon's chastening effect on the pious, and increased, the complacency of the self-righteous. The bough-shelter on the recreation reserve that served, as grandstand on sports days became the point of diver gence for one large group. Breaking, into knots of twos and threos, they straggled "in various directions to their scattered humpies. A man, a woman and a boy w...

THE SCARECROW. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 4 March 1911
THE SCARECROW. Farmer Brown had engaged a new boy for odd jobs about his land. Mike proved willing, ingenious, and found a method of his own for every sort of work that turned up. One morning, coming in for breakfast from his early morning round, Mr. , Brown exhibited considerable temper over the deprodac tions of a flock of crows of more than usual voracity. . "Mike, my boy, ye'll havo to spend this, day playing scarecrow on the Three Acres." "All right, yer honor; scarecrow did ye; sny ?" .. . . ; A- few hours later, Mr. Brown was again in the Three Acres. There was no sign of Alike, but in the middle of the field, a. bulky, ragged scarecrow stood stiffly against an upright post. " . lio,"'thought the farmer, "so this is Master Mike's dodge, is it? I'll bet. he's down at the stream in the next field." ' He put his hands to his mouth, and hollowed "Mike!" To his utter surprise the rags of the scarecrow fluttered, and : Mike's anxious face appeared from under an old hat. The farmer ...
LAUGH AND GROW YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 4 March 1911
LAUGH AND GROW YOUNG. If we laughed more we should all bo happier and healthier. True, w© arc busy and very practical pooplo, and1 most of us probably find more in this life to bring the frown than the smile; but, neverthe less;, it'is a pity that" we do not* laugh .?more; that \ye do not bring outselves to the laugh, if need bo. For we all agree tluit u goodlaugh is the best medicine in ?the world. Physicians have said that no .other feeling works 60 much good to the ?entire Iranian body as that of merriment. As i digestive, it is unexcelled: as a melius of expanding tho lungs, there is nothing better. It keeps the heart and face .voiiiijg. It is the best of all tonics to. the spirits. It- is, .too, the most en joyable of all sensations. A good laugh makes us better friends with ourselves and: everybody around- us, and puts us in tovcloser touch with -what is best and. brightest in our lot in life. It is to bo ?regretted, then, that such a potent agency for our persona! good is not...

Both leg and will arc preserved at Sonior sot Hoijse. As his Lordship lay in bed, it was no doubt his delight to withdraw tho will from its strange- hiding-place-for ho could'easily do so-and either dwell with satisfaction on its contents, or else make any alterations that might occur to him.
