Technical Education. ITS AIMS AND OBJECTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 24 July 1909

Technical Education. ITS AIMS AND OBJECTS. Technical education has become recognised as the one essential in the development and building up of a national industry. The educational ques tion has engaged the attention of thoughtful minds for many years. Systems have been evolved, and various methods for imparting knowledge have been adopted. Education, however, is very pro gressive, consequently experience shows that systems and methods have to be modified to meet, the times and circumstances so as to keep pace with commercial and industrial advancement. Great attention is being paid to the primary and secondary sides of education. These to a large extent influence the technical, as they form the foundation upon which the future careers of our boys and girls are built. It is of the utmost im portance that the youths and girls of this State should have their educational principles well and truly laid. The future of this State — what is it to be ?

Worth While [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 24 July 1909

Worth While It is easy enough to be pleasant, When life flows by like a song, But the man worthwhile is one who will smile, When everything goes quite wrong. For the test of the heart is trouble, And it always comes with the years, And the smile that is worth the praises of earth Is the smile that shines through tears It is easy enough to be prudent, When nothing tempts you to stray, When without or within no vice of sin, Is luring your soul away. But it's only a negative viiaie, '7. Until it is tried by the fire. And the life that is worth the honour of earth, Is the one that resists desire. By the cynic, the sad, the fallen, Who had no strength for the strife, The world's highway is cumbered to-day, They make up the items of life. But the virtue that conquers passion, And the sorrow that hides in a smile, It is these that are worth the homage of earth, For we find them but once in a while. Three tilings man requires in the hur ricanes of life ; courage in misfortune, hu mility in ...

Birmingham has reduced the price per unit of its electricity from 4d. in 1900 (when the enterprise was started) to 1}{([. In addition, the surplus for the year amounts to^'10,000. On its gas supply the 3-ear's surplus was ;£ 71,459. This gives a total of ^'80,000 on the two ventures, and this sum is placed as a contribution to aid the city improvement rate.
