JBowral Bicycle Club. SUCCESSFUL INITIAL RACE. The first race under the anspicos of the Bowral Bicycle Club took pluco on Wednes day afternoon last. The weather was not altogether favorable to the event, a strong wind having the upper hand ; and the road chosen was far from being in the pink of condition. The great portion of the road had quite recently undergone considerable repairs, and owing to the continuous dry weather, the earth and stones had not set. The route was from the post office, along Kangaloon-road to Mr. Roberts's, past the residences of Messrs. Loseby and Royle, on to the Cross-roads, and home along the Moss Vale road.

NOVEL USES FOR THE TELEPHONE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 5 March 1902

HOYEL USES FOR THE TELEPHONE. Some provincial telephone subscribers have made arrangements with the central office in America to hare their telephone bell act as an alarm clock. Orders have been left for the purpose, and the manager has a regular schedule of calls from 4.30 to 7.30 a.m. Persons who wish to take early trains out of town leave orders with the manager, and there is no danger of missing their trains. It has also frequently happened that a subscriber has left word—where there is an all-night service—to be called at one hour or two-hour intervals during the night when he has had to take medicine, and much worry has been saved thereby. 'I am a self-made man,' said the proud individual. ' Well, you are all right except as to your head,' commented the other part of the conversation. » ' How is thatP* 'The part yon talk with is out of proportion to the part you think with.'
