SOCIAL AT LEURA. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 7 August 1909

SOCIAL AT LEURA. On Friday evening last a private social was held in the Leura Hall, when a num ber of residents gathered together and spent a very enjoyable time. The arrangements were in the hands of a small committee, with Mr. A. K. Knight as secretary, audit is hoped that these socials will be held regularly throughout the winter. Mes dames Fishburn and Wicks, and Miss Baker were among the leading workers, and did much to make the evening the success it was. The hall was nicely decorated with flags J and ferns, the floor in good order, and the ' weather bright and fine, so that even'thing was suitable for dancing, which was freely indulged in. Mr. A. K. Knight acting as M.C. Miss 1. Webb, of Ketoornba, sup plied the music, whilst Miss L. Bulmer played several extras. During the evening Mrs. A. West and Miss Craig favored with songs, which made a pleasant variation in the programme. Mr. C. Lindeman kindly lent his splendid . phonograph, which also livened the pro ceedings. The su...

LEURA. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 7 August 1909

I t 'TrnrTTE? a 1 I 1 J in j LJ JljL/tl.. | ? | From our Own Correspondent.] The bicycle race from Springwoocl to Katoomba and back caused a good deal of excitement at Leura, quite a number of people assembling at the corner of Bathurst road and Leura Mall to witness the race. And though it was so cold a good number stayed to see the last mail through. Master Ronald Gre}^ had the misfortune last Snt.n rein, v afternoon while watch in 2' the road race to be knocked down by one of the riders. The bike passed over his foot, and had the pace not been slow he would have most likely been hurt seriously, but fortu nately it was at the top of the hill and the riders were going very slowly at this point. As it was the boy was dragged along the metal for a yard or Jtwo before the bike went over his foot. The rider lost a little time, as he had to dismount to fix his gear before he could proceed on his journey. On Monday night last quite a number of residents and visitors turned out and had a ...

The Fruitgrowers' Association. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 7 August 1909

The fruitgrowers' Association. The meeting of the Fruitgrowers' Association, held at the Council Chamber's on Saturday last, was one of considerable interest. Captain Hicks occupied the chair. The Secretary, Mr. Wooller, read a letter he had received from the Agricultural Department which stated that every care was being taken to carry out the provisions of the Act regarding infected fruit entering the State, and also sending 100 leaflets on the treat ment of fruit pests, etc., for distribution to mem bers of the Association, which are available on application to the Secretary. There is no reason whatever now for any grower to be without the knowledge of how to treat the various pests and diseases, as it is within his grasp. As the leaflets are intended for members only it behoves every grower, and all others interested in the growing of pure fruit on the mountains, to join the Asso ciation. A good beginning has been made, the Agricultural Department recognises the Associa tion as a...

KATOOMBA, WAKE UP ! [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 7 August 1909

KATOOMBA, WAKE UP ! In several issues of this journal we have brought before our people questions of more than ordinary importance to the general welfare and advantage of the Blue Moun tains in general and of Katoomba in par ticular, but the apathy seems so deep-seated and far-reaching that no move has been made in any of the directions indicated^, and we have pretty nearly reached that point where we must give it up as useless trying to move our people out or the old rut. But now the people all along the line of the Blue Mountains are up against a real danger if they do not rouse themselves from their lethargy and get a move on. For years past the Mountains have' been the great attraction for thousands of tour ists and seekers after health and recreation, but of late we have had evidence enough that an indifference to our wants and claims not only exists in the Intelligence Depart ment and Tourists' Bureau, but in the Rail way Department as well, for if our reason able and legitima...

Letters to the Editor. OUR FIRE BRIGADE ! [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 7 August 1909

Letters to the Editor. OUR FIRFy BRIGADE ! Sir, — If you will grant me space in your paper to ask a few questions about our local Fire Brigade (as local agent for one of the largest Insurance Companies of Australia). I should like to know who runs the Fire Brigade, whether it is the Ka toomba Council (who are representatives of the ratepayers) or is it Alderman Pannell, who also holds the position of Captain of the Fire Brigade. Captain Pannell seems to take upon himself to do anvtliing he thinks riirht, whether anyone else thinks so or not, and he does not ask but does it. I understand there is a Fire Brigade Board (if not, there ought to be) to deal with all business of the Fire Brigade, and this Board has the con trol of the Fire Brigade, and not Captain Pannell as he seems to think. If there is a grievance there is (or ought to be) a proper place and time to ventilate that grievance, and not for Captain Pannell or anyone to take it upon themselves to ' settle it. Now on Wednesda...

Origin of the Name of Canada. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 7 August 1909

Origin of the Name of Canada. The origin of the name of Canada is interesting, and is not widely known. The Spaniards went there before the French settlers and searched for . gold and silver mines ; finding no trace of the precious metals in prospecting, they constantly repeated the words aca uada, meaning ' There is nothing here. ' The Indians gradually became familiar with these often repeated words, and when the French ar rived, the Indians, who were anxious to get rid of them,vaiid thought they too were on the search for gold, lost no time in repeating aca nada to them. The French settlers did not know Spanish, and thought that the Indians were telling them the name of the country, so the}' adopted it them selves, and gave it the name of Canada. A young coloured man asked permission of his employer to use the telephone, as he wished to apeak to a coloured girl employed at another residence. Upon receiving consent he explained : ' You see, it's dis way. I loves dat girl an' wants...
