The Dog Scare. ASSUMING ILARGE DIMENSIONS. PRETTY PUPPIES POISONED. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 13 July 1901
The Dog Scare. ASSUMING ILARGE DIMENSIONS. PRETTY PUPPIES POISONED. It has come under our nofiice very much of late from various sources thai; some person or persons ape doing the rounds of the town" distributing " tough on rats" among the. caniue pets of the neighbourhood. The action is uot only extremely contemptible, ,but the practise which is so rapidly spread ing is beginning to terrorise the owners of valuable dogs! About a dozen dogs have met with this agoniuiug fate during the past week and it would be difficult to tell how many others are doomed to die this un natural death. The practise is assuming such large dimensions that active investi gation is) immediately called for. Of course a number of dogs have been rather trouble some of late destroying sheep, but the laying of baits in public thoroughfares to catch othor unwary creatures is currying matters too far.
IMPERIAL MANUFACTURING COMPANE'S MILLS GUTTED. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 13 July 1901
IMPERIAL MANUFACTURING COM-. PANE'S MILLS GUTTED. ... A second outbreak of fire occurred in 'the city about midnight on Wednesday." la this instance the flames were raging in'"a large brick building of six floors occupied by the Imperial Manufacturing Company in Kent-street. A man, walking past the premieea a few minutes after midnight, noticed that the third and fourth stories were on fire. He immediately communicat ed this intelligence to the headquaters of the fire brigade, tind iu a marvellously short space of time Superintendent Webb and Deputy-Super.in tent Sparkes, with a strong detachment of men aud appliance*, were ut the sceue of the fresh outbreak: Notwith standing.that the firemen were all more or less fagged out by their strenuous exer tions a few hours previously at tho Palace Emporium,, they worked like Trojans. Streams of water now began to pour into the building, the second, third, and fourth stories of which were ablaze. In 2(V minutes the IIro hail been got under,...
Disastrous Fires. THE PALACE EMPORIUM DESTROYED. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 13 July 1901
Disastrous Fires. THE PALACE EMPORIUM DESTROYED. One of the most disastrous fires which Sydney has ever experienced occurred on Wednesday morning, when a block of bniidings owned by Messrs.. Anthony Hordern and Sons was almost completely demolished. Shortly after 8 o'clock the alarm was given that Hor dern's was on fire, and immediately every available fireman in' the Metropolis, with fire-fighting apparatus, was on his way to Haymarket. The fire broke out in the toy department on the lower floor of what is known as the palace building, which faces Gipps-street, and lies between the corner building and an eight-storied struc ture adjoining the offices of the gag com? pany. The flames made great headway among the inflammable.stock, and almost before the brigades got to work the building was a seething mass of flame, and long tongues . were licking at the huge building across Parker-street. Thousands of people com ing into town stopped to witness the flames shoot hundreds of feet into...
Stray Notes. To the Editor, Bowral and Robertson Free Press. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 13 July 1901
Stray Notes. To the Editor, Bmoral and Robertson Free Press. 0iit,—In tbo Glenquarry portion of our dis trict things seem to be going from bud to worse. At no very retaoto date there wab H post office, a public school and a church at Glenquarry. The pnhlic school and poet office aro now lliiugs of tlio past. They took flight right over the big lull and were piloted to new quarters at Itoborton Piirk, If this was not robbing Petor to pay Faul I'm a Dutchman. Why in tbo name of all that's good aud holy the old church didn't pop over the hill too puzzles me. It moy be a good thing for a place to havo two pqm-'S even supposing that 0110 of them has been annexed. There may not bo much in this little gamo of borrowing names, but the post officials at Sydney who havo never been in this portion of tlie district might naturally think that the residents of the vicinity of and at Glenquarry, who nnmber fifty all told, have a post office; but the dff &lt;r euco is between having it and ...

Football. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 17 July 1901
Football. On Saturday last a match was played on. the Sydney Cricket Ground between teams representing the Berrima-Camden Union and a second grade metropolitan, team, resulting in a win for the iatter by' 15 to nil. in the first half, Algie,. Fisher, and Kelly scored a,' try each, for- the win ners, and in the second half Dixie and Kelly added to the score. Out of the five trys obtained no goals were kicked. The Sydney team was altogether toa smart for the B.C. Union representatives, but j probably, had they had a .practice game together before they journeyed to the city they would have had a better show, be cause being a mixed team the men were not acquainted with each other's-mode of play, and therefore put the ball in play in the weakest parts of the team instead of the strongest. We hope that a trial game will be played with the selected team before they are again sent to the metropolis. At the Sydney Cricket Ground on Sat urday afternoon after the above match was concluded, New...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. "Old Scribe's" Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 17 July 1901
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. "Old Scribe's" Letter, Sir, —r Mr. "Old Scribe's" letter in Saturday's "Free Press" referring to the Glenquarry Post Office is misleading. He is not succinct. The Sydney mails are received twice daily (Sunday's excepted) at die Glenquarry Post Office, at noon via Mots Vale and Robertson, and at 3 p.m. via Bowral. The Glenquarry P.O. is 5^ miles from Bowral, and connected with the Roberton Park Public School. Should the residents or the Hon. R. H. Roberts (on whose estate it is) express a wish to have the name changed to " Roberton Park" Post Office, the change could easily be effected—but inuendoes from behind the shelter of a nom de plume will not have that effect. I may add that the reason for retaining the name Glenquarry has been that the names " Roberson " and " Roberton Park " being so much alike, letters, etc., for the one place might likely be missent to the other place, and thus delay delivery. That part of the district referred to by " Qld Scribe " a...
