A GREAT RUSH. FOR THE HALF-PAST NINE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 13 July 1901

A GREAT RUSH. FOR THE EIALF-PAST NINE. The practice pf a number of persons con gregating in the main entrance bajl at the railway. Station, particularly at tbe 9.3C1 train on Saturday nights, has become such a nuisance that tbe officials tinve determin ed to pat a stop to it, An invitation to. ft number of tbem to attend the local police court would quickly abate this nuisance, but if those concerned would avoid the necessity pf such measures by only visiting the. railway atatian when business, compels them to, tbey would not only be serving then own interests, but the convenience of travellers. Our advice to those concerned is to take the. hint. It would be better if parents generally made, an endeavour to. keep th.eir children from roaming tbe streets, for in bis teens tbe growing youth is apt to learn—tbe in tellect is sharp,, the brain impressionable and tbe mind elastic, a,nd it is fully realised what golden hours are spent in elo.th and stagnation between tbe age of fourteen a...

FRIENDLY SOCIETIES' DEMONSTRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 13 July 1901

FRIENDLY1 SOCIETIES' DEMONSTRATION , The forthcoming United Friendly So cieties' Demonstration in aid of the hospi tal, s.ho,uld, judging by first appearances* eclipse all previous efforts. The system atic method in which the delegates have constructed the foundation of their opera tions is highly commendable. With such an executive staff and energetic general secretary something will have to go. Mr. Farrow's efficiency in secretarial duties is very pronounced, for past experi ences serve as an excellent criterion for future developments. Although over £100 was netted from last year's demon stration, the ambitious committee are de sirous of surpassing that total and estab- | lishing a grand and creditable record. The proceeds are in aid of a worthy insti tution, and with the co-operation of. the the general public the highest aims should be achieved* |

Mystic Senses. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 13 July 1901

Mystic Senses. BY A BANKER. It is certain that animalB and birds possess senses which in man are either altogether absent, or are developed in a much lesser degree than irithe animal world. As 'one example, the strange sense aflooality,.which many birds, and also numerous animals, possess in such marked degree, is with us entirely wanting. For instance, if a oat be carried by night in a closed basket from its home in a large city to another district of the city several miles distant, within a day or two it will probably have found its way back through the streets to its old home. Or if a oarrier pigeon be taken several hundred miles away from its cote, and then released, after making two or three ciroles in the air it will start off in a straight line to the place whence it was taken. Now, although the bird rises to a considerable height beforestarting on its journey, yet, however sharp and far-reaching it's eyesight, it would be impossible far it to see the place of its destination...
