THE BRITISH DOMESTIC GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 21 August 1908
THE BRITISH IROMESTIC GIRLS. (BY Jvi;.) Tub oternal "servant question" is a double one-how can wo create a sup ply equal to tho demand, and how can wo keep our donuvitios when we havo ^ofc them? Tho Government is answer-* ing tho Jirst, and tho .'second will per haps never bo answered by tho united wisdom of a hundred.legislative bodies; It is a matter to:'a,large extent lor mistresses and maids;" lb was in tho latter part of 1907 that tho Government of New South Wales made up its mind to settle our domestic affairs by offering a sufficient inducement to British girls to bring them in a steady stream to Sydney, and tired mistresses dropped their dishcloths and black-lead brushes for a while to dream of the millennium. Many things make the prospect of a change to Australia an inviting one to English pe6ple-;the higher wages, the chance of "seeing something of the world," tho greater freedom of our lifo horo, tho long voyhgo, tho bright climate, and perhaps not least the love of chung...

REGISTRY OFFICES. And How They Are Run. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 21 August 1908
REGISTRY OFFICES. And How They Are Run. During the iParliatneiitary session ending in November of last year, Mr. E. M. Clark, the member for St. Leonards, a gentleman who has iden- [ tiilicd himself more particularly with the vexatious matter of Registry Offices and their control, again I brought 'before the notice of the House, the necessity- for the more , complete and organised supervision ! of Labour Agencies. 'In furtherance ' of the Bill, Mr. Clark- said: "I think ' that every member must realise the ' necessity for a measure, of this .kind. ! rroba'bly there arc no greater thieves in the community than 'Registry O'f- ' .ficc 'keepers, and those who co-oper ate with them." (At first sight the above would appear a very startling, not to say libellous, statement to make m connection with a recognised and old established' calling. Unfortunate- i ly, however, investigation lias 'proved that there is a colour of truth in these remarks, and ihas als0 further confirmed the unsavoury ...
FARM AND FIELD. [?]INGER-AND-TOE DISEASE. SOME OF THE CHARACTERISTICS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 21 August 1908
FARM AMI FIELD, .fINGER-AND-TOE DISEASE. £0X1E OF THE CHARACTERISTICS. The finger and too disease, also known by the names of club-root and canker, attacks turnips, cabbage, rape, swedes, and various othor kinds of vegetables. It can, acording to Mr Kirk, a New Zea land expert, remain in the soil for seve ral years In a dormant condition, and reappear when a suitable crop is sown. Then it germinates, attacks tho roots, and soon affects tho whole crop. Sour, poor soils, unfavorable seasons, badly balanced manures, and weak plants all contribute to the_development of-the dis ease. Overworking tho land was blamed for the disease at one'time, no doubt, becauso the fungus is carried about by implements, horses' feet, dray wheels, etc.; but land worked in a wet stat© and trodden in often becomes badly infested. Grain of all kinds, marigolds, carrots, potatoes; etc., can be grown in, infected land." It follows from what has been said that careful rotation of crops is neces sary for'the sup...

Suspiciousness. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 21 August 1908
SusDlcIousncss. Suspiciousness, although not neces sarily an inborn quality, is ,ono which from earliest youth is apt to bo absorb ed from petty sources, and, like an or dinary garden weed, thrives with ap parently no1 cultivation. To the natural susceptibility of child hood nothing is more permeating in its influence, and to live in its atmosphere is but to insure certain forms of deceit. To a child who has been lovingly and simply reared, the trust thus in stilled in him both reflects character and affects it, and teachos the only truo standard by which to judge all things, and just as trust educates us, so also does suspicion degenerate. Suspicion kills all love; there must bo magnanimity and openness of mind before any joy of truo living can bo known. One can never truly know anything through suspicion; whereas through sympathy and trust wo may indeed onter into the lives of others. "Our false"" realisms in art and our stupid pessimisms in philosophy aro due to an unintelligent ...

"But my child is dressed as a but terfly, " exclaimed the woman, "and has forgotten her wings." "Can't help it," replied the police man, "orders is orders, so you'll have to let her go as a caterpillar."

A Forest of Stone. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 28 August 1908
A Forest of Stone. In Albany is to bo soon a stone-for 4 est, in other words, petrified trees. A -Paris contemporary, describing this strange spot, says that the trees and their branches aro of- a grey stone. It is suggested as an explanation of the strange phenomenon that in the depths of past ages the forest was in full vege tation, and then, through somo iipheav al of the earth, it was buried in sand. Littlo by .little water acting on the iand penotrated the branches and sol idified. The wood gradually disappear ed under the layer of stone, and in time took its form. Then in succeeding years the winds again carried, away the sand, and the forest appeared anew, but of stono.

"Ex periments mado a few years ago in Cu ba demonstrated fully that tho disease can be conveyed only by a mosquito, the Stygnomyi fascinata." The lady hesitated for a moment, di vided between politeness and convic tion, and then appeased both. "But you see, doctor,' \sho replied smoothly, "the incident which I was relating hap pened ten years ago, before the Styno myia was discovered I"

TOCIMWAL. Tocumwal is a purely native name bestowed upon it by the aboriginals in early days, and" was so called be cause of a superstition then, existent which attributed it to be the abode of a river spirit which was accus tomed to flit underground by a sub terranean passage from Tocumwal and bob up at the granite forma tion eight miles away in the direc tion of Berrigan, and which then contained two or three deep well holes unbottomable by the pioneer settlers. These were really small craters, and are now filled up by by debris and numerous sheep and other animals having fallen in. Toc umwal as a township dat^s its com mencement from 1861, when the late Mr Edward Hillson built anc}, opened a roadside hotel and store.
