HEAD-ON SMASH. CARS MEET AT FORK ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 27 June 1925

HEAD-ON SMASH. CARS MEET AT FORK ROADS. A collision between two mot. or cars occurred at the fork roads leading from the outskirts of the town of Crookwell to Bin da and Grabben Gullen, about 1.30 p.m. Yesterday. Mr. P. Kennedy (storekeeper), o£ Grabben Gullen, was coming to Crookwell from Grabben Gullen in liis Overland and Mr. Fred Carr, of Cliatsbury, was making for Binda a 5-seater Dodge. It would appear tliat one driver or the other misunderstood the inten tion o£ the other, with the result that both came together right at the inter section practically head-on. Both cars were damaged consider ably, particularly the Dodge, owing, no doubt to the portion which receiv ed the force of the impact. The Overland was able to limp in to town under her own power, but the other was too badly damaged to be towed in on its own wheels. Neither the drivers nor the other oc cupants of the cars were seriously in jured.

The Wollondilly was a banker. Conse quently the mails reached the post office per a wire rope which has been erected by the residents near the office for the purpose. During the week-end eight inches of rain fell, and the 'Wollondilly Riv er has one of the largest floods that has been seen for years, which has caused considerable damage to prop erty, but fortunately no stock were washed away. The Wombeyan Caves Boad is blocked in several places through landslips and through rocks rolling onto it, but as men are busy repairing the bad parts, the road will be in good order by the time the river is crossable. The Mittagong-Barrallier mail was unable to reach the receiving office on Saturday, and the mailman had to camp in the roadmen's hut at Good man's Ford. But on Sunday morning he proceeded down the river ...

BURBA LAKE. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 27 June 1925

BURBA LAKE. The recent heavy rain has put a large sheet of water in Burra Lake, and a flock of eighteen swans, be sides large numbers of ducks, have found their way to this spot, which seems to suit them so well, and where these large fowl are likely to remain if the volume of water is fur ther augmented later on. Some of the boys living adjacent to its shores find much pleasure and ex citement in a miniature boat (their own manufacture and design), in which they essay the task of going over its surface. As a witness to the trial run of their little craft, with a different boy on board each time, it certainly was thrilling. EVen. the dogs, evidently carried away by the shouts and excitement of the embar kation, swam in after them. ' They set out, those hardy navigators, in a northward direction from Port Keith and were making for a point in the "mighty deep" midway between Blay's Inlet and Cape Twynam. A boat which they had built some time previously, and which they had left in "dry...

FROM BONDAGE TO BEULAH. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 27 June 1925

FROM BONDAGE TO BEULAH. From Rameses beside tile river, the far-famed river broad and blue, A multitude of trembling mortals set out In search of regions new; They borrowed from their tyrant Masters, before they went their way, Gold brooches, rings and bracelets, and gems and goods and rich array; Thus harnessed up, in haBte they jour neyed, without a word of last fare well, For they were quitting loathsome bon dage and fleeing from the mouth of hell. A guiding Angel moved before them .in clouds of dazzling light, Or rested o'er their vast encampment, a "flame of fire throughout the night." They rested in their desperate jour ney, 'twixt Midol and the Purple Sea, And Baal-zephon loomed around them to magnify their misery. An armed and angry host pursued them, like hungry wolves when hunting sheep; Amazed, they found themselves en tangled "between the devil and the deep." Their plight seemed gloomy, sad, and hopeless, they suffered woe aud needless fear; The fiery flame that glowed b...

SNOW-CROWNED KOSCIUSKO. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 27 June 1925

SNOW.CROWNED KOSCIUSKO. Long I lived on Roslyn ranges where the altitudes are high, Where the climate ever changes,— sometimes wet and sometimes dry; Where you get the ocean breezes, and the gentle zephyrs blow; Where the world in winter freezes, and the summer-blossoms glow. By the far-famed Wollondilly, where its waters take their rise, I have often boiled my billy under blue and cloudless skies; 'Neath the roof-tree I have pondered o'er the warblings of the birds, Or through fields and pastures wan dered with the flocks, and with the herds. Many acres I have fallowed for the different kinds of grain, Labour on the land was hallowed and I'd like to farm again; Many years I worked a dairy and could milk the toughest cow; I was happy as a fairy and would like the pastime now. I have worked with axe and shovel clearing timber from the farm, I have read the frothy novel that has done 110 end of harm; I have helped improve the homestead which at first was waste and wild; With a patriot...

Family Notices [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 27 June 1925

WEDDING BELLS. WHARTON—FULLER. Four hundred guests were invited by Sir George and Lady Fuller to the wedding of their daughter, Gwendo- len, at St. Andrew's Cathedral, on Wednesday, and a large proportion of the remainder of the populace of Sydney went uninvited. George-street was literally banked with people, and more again lined the drive inside the grounds, and hund reds sought admission to the build ing. Despite the efforts or a bevy of ushers, they crowded the aisle, stood on chairs, and exen mounted the pul- pit. At the Ambassadors, where the re- ception was held, the crowd was as dense, the motor cars having great difficulty in getting through. The ar- ray of cars, too, was amazing. The pretty bride, who was given away by her father, was Miss Gwen- dolen Ada Fuller, only daughter of Sir George and Lady Fuller, and the bridegroom, . Mr. Frank Langwell Wharton, younger son of Mr. and Mrs. F. Wharton (Queensland).
