The Hospitable Stranger. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 23 December 1905

The Hospitable Stranger. BY EDWIN PTJGH. It was an evil day in the month of .March — a bitter, biting, blinding day of shrewish winds end icy showers. For considerably more than twenty-four hoars 1 had cot had a crumb between my lips. 1 was sick and faint and alias ing for want of food. I stood with my hands iu my empty pockets at a gusty corner near Piccadilly Circus, and sur veyed the arid prospect with a gloomy countenance. A be -gar whined at my elbow for a copper. It was too funny. I smiled on him, but eo grimly that lie shambled off with a mattered apology for pestering' me. I~Euppose he had not noticed st first that, though the uppers of ray boots were brilliant witb polish, I was, as a matter of fact, literally stand ing on the soles of my socks. He bad been misled by my factitious air of smartness and well-beinE. by the dazzl ing lustre of my well oiled top fa at and carefully tnrned col lar, by the careless ease with wbicb I leaned o n mv walking slick and dangled an odd g...

TO THE EDITOR COROWA CHRONICLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 23 December 1905

TO THE EDITOn COROWA CmONICLS. Bin, — My attention has been drawn to a report iu connection with Mr. J. Steel's harvester, which appeared iu the lust issue of the 'Free Press.' This report is abso lutely incorrect, ine uarvester in question was so damaged that I was sent for by Mr. Stcclc to remedy same. On arrival, I found that very serious damage had been done. The drum hud been unscrewed on one side, ali the bagger platform taken off, the riddle turned upside down, and a lot of otber nuts unscrewed. There was also a lot of disgraceful writing scratched on the machine. Hod any foreign matter, such as thistles, etc. got into tbe drum the re sult must have been a serious accident. Yours, &c, C.

Reverie. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 23 December 1905

Reverie. A fall of feot, eternal, Kings heavy in*Uie,ear ; High hangs, jo er roofs supernal, A Smoke Pall, far and near. Enshrouded in its gases, The City, corpse-like, lies; Hut lo! a vision passes, Unbidden, to mine eyes. A far, faint breath of clover Is carried down the lane, And now the wind sweeps over Broad meadow-lands again. Dull 6un-forgotten alleys, Erstwhile agnsp for air, To cool enchanted valleys Are turned by magic fair. Where lay foul gutter-waters, In quiet pools, unclean, Now walk the Cloud-Kiug's daughters, Broad river-bunks between. Dull chains of Fact no. longer In heavy links may hind When dove-eyed Fancy, Younger, Sits throned in the mind. Now, o'er the ranges biding, The lone white Morning Star Await* her Sun God, riding Afield in Golden Car. Ablaze with heat of passion, With dew-wet eyes and dim, His love, in hot compassion, Afar hath followed him. The purple iniste arc lifting Above the river gatt ; : The teal is coyly drifting Down current to her mhtoi Gree...

"Bilkins." [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 23 December 1905

' Bilkins.' (By Frances Qdinn.) For the twentieth time that day, the postmistress had rattled the change in the drawer and handed it across the counter to the smiling customer. They were almost always smiling in that dull little township. They would speak to her of the drought with a smile, of the rain with a emile, of almost everything with a smile, and the little postmistress w mid smile back and try to look cheer ful. But they were long, long days, BDd tbe customers would drift out, one by one, to their different occupations, leav ing the little postmistress to stare out the window at the red, dusty road lead ing np the hill before her, and to wundcr would lite be always bo. Sometimes a mob of cattle would tramp past and break the monotony of her surroundings, or a sheep-train noul3 stop for ten or twenty minutes beside her oflice, and the dismal cry of the sheep packed in the trucks would fill her heart with sorrow. Sometimes an irate customer would come in and demand a letter, ...

PEACE AND GOODWILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 23 December 1905

PEACE AND GOODWILL. There are spaces in life which memory keeps for ever green. When the toiler lays aside his tool;, the artist his brush, the mason his chisel. The cares and trials, manifold and numberless as they are, under which humanity staggers, are cast aside, and mankind, in a wave of almost universal happiness, momen tary though it be, gains a faint realisation of what this world would be if peace and goodwill did truly reign. And such is the Christinas season, full as it is of fragrant memories to the old, and happy an ticipation to the young, when re-union and felicity give birth to a noble charity. Not a charity of mere gold or silver, but a charity of the greater part which teaches us to look for the best in our fellow-men, and to glance kindlv on faults and failings. To many it is a period of the most wonderful significance to of the world's redemption. The ma terial expression of a conception so vast and sublime that in the glorious reflex of its grandeur, its realisa...

The Wattle Blossoms. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 23 December 1905

Tbe Wattle Blossoms. (BY REKA WALLACE.) Tliere was a long line of wattle trees stretching from the garden away down to the winding creek. And on either side of this they also grew, their feathery boughs interlacing over the stream, just loosely enough to let the blue sky shine through in patches; and the branches waving softly in the breeze flecked the clear pools with delicious shadows. You could not look at this lovely spot without wondering what elfin people made it their haunt — dancing along those banks at night, or rowing their light crafts above the pellucid water. If you went there early in the morn ings your eyes would be dazzled with the rich array ot big, soft, yellow flowers, that swayed on slender stems, springing from nests of wide green leaves. They stood as gracefully as tall, lovely ladies. But they were very frail ; if you bent to catch their perfume (as you would certainly be tempted to do) the slightest touch would spoil their petals, or the yellow pollen would c...

" QUITS!" 1 [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 23 December 1905

' QUITS r 1 9 0 f [BY WALTER J. HEGAKTY.J After a year of hardship and hope killing disappointment. the three mates had struck a rich pocket of gold, a thousand ounces of the precious metal reposed in the canvas hag hidden under neath their hut floor ! The two Andersen's— big Swedish brethren — were for dividing at once, and making for their beloved homeland. Petersen, the Dane, demurred ! ' Why not give it another week or so?' Petersen argued. ' The find may not be worked out. Besides,' he added, almost contemptuously, it isn't much for three!' 'Blast j-our greedy heart, Petersen!' broke in the younger brother. Hans. ' With a thousand pounds in .your kick, you could buy enough cows in your tin g)t little islands to make yourself a utter King ! At any rate, Peter and myself are satisfied.'* Petersen, however, pleaded hard, and a strange light was in his eyes. ' An other week's work.' he insisted, 'and our find may turn into a fortune for each of up!' His pleadings at last prevailed....
