And not edified apd enter tained only, but stimulated to take into their serious consideration tlio dosirability of' re establishing the,defunct Mutual Improve ment Society,, which I am i.uformed existed ' ija B.owral for a few months a couple of years ago.. The value of these societies has been so clearly and succinctly stated by your con tributor that it would be useless for me to attempt to add to the arguments contained in the article referred to, and which I sin-, corely hope was not passed over carelessly by the young men who bad an opportunity of reading it.

FARMERS SHOULD KEEP RECORDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 6 September 1884
FARMERS SHOULD KEEP RECORDS* Most farmers cannot tell what a single crop costs or what • they realise for it, which crop pays and which does not, what clasB of farm stock is to them profitable or otherwise, or what field has brought in more than .lias, been ex pended upon it. The farmer does not keep ac counts, because he thinks tfio work too difficult, but it is not necessaryfor the farmer to be an expert accountant. If possessed of only aver age intelligence, a fair supply of good common sense, a blank book and a pencil, he can do all that iB essential. The transactions of each day can; be set down at night in a few minutes. I Among the leading advantages of book-keeping is an accurate knowledge of the cost of each crop. Many a farmer's son has been set on the right road to .learn the use and value, of money by being directed at evenings to make out a ■statement of the day's work, its. cost, its returns and.profits, &c.

Jane Gibson, a portly-pretty damsel of some twenty years of age, was in the act of thrusting open the parlor shutters as he came up; and,her froslj saucy face shining iii the rosy light ofaoloudless morning of May, looked sa very attractive as it poered through the flowering hyacinths in smiling recognition of tho new comer, that he could not forbear kissing it; so, at least, he said • in reply to Jane's-— .La I Mr. ..Netherly, what a man you are ; you always take one upon a nonplush so. ■ What, again ! 0, for shame !"

Select Poetry. YOUNG HEEDLESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 6 September 1884
YODNG HEEDLESS. Young Heodless is ft boy Who lives iu every town, His name ? 'Tis sometimes Jimmy Smitli, And sometimes Tommy Brown. Young Heedless goes to school— When he can find his hat; At home ho loves to play at ball—* When he can find his bat, Of mittons, one is gone ; Of rubbers, two or more; And on the very coldest day He never shuts the cloor, The hammer's always lost, The saw left on the ground, And when ho wants his buttonrhoolf It never can be found, To buy a pieco of beef, You send him to tho shop ; He losos all tho change ho had, And brings you mutton chop, For all these oareless things, And more than I could name, Young Heedless always feels quite sure ' He never is to blame, His father would despair, But that this thing is true—&lt; That forty years or so ago, He was young Heedless too.

The time-honored custom of oall ing attention to straugers jn tho house, and the vexatious delay it may occasion, are now being painfully demonstrated by an hou, member .famous for waging hot warfare against worn-out- fads and crude r'omuauts of antiquated wisdom.

Olden (Wesloyan minister) conducted Divine service, exchanging pul pits with the Rev. R. Jennings. The P.M. church was convoniontly filled, and: Mr. Olden soon made himself quite at home in his new sphere of labor. Without going into details &lt;. of the hymus sung or the portions of Scripture read at tho three services, we may sum the matter up in these words—All were appropriate to tho occasion, having more or less direct reference to the young. An in teresting ' feature was that about twenty little girls dressed mostly in white, occupied a prominent position; and three times dur ing oaoh service^ assisted by a well-trained; choir, they treated the congregation to some: excellent music. Mr. Frost was musical; conductor, and the singiug reflected great credit upon his training. . The large choir...
