SILENCING OF HORACE LANE. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 11 March 1911

SILENCING OF HORACE LANE. ' j (By Clement Sidney, in "M.A.P.") "I was lucky to find you-I never thought I should. I'd just about come to the end of my tether, when here you are, ten years older, married, and looking as snug and comfortable as if you'd been reared In a hothouse." The speaker's lips parted In a smile, disclosing a row of strangely beautiful teeth. It was his" one good feature, Sor otherwise his appearance could only be adequately described as brutal. Mrs Paton did not reply; she sat .there gazing fixedly in the Are, a faint Slush mounting her cheeks. "No one," continued the man, "would aver think you'd had a past, you know." "You brute!" "And your husband? He's a dear "boy, I understand? What is he-a pub lic analyst? - fellow that sees you 'don't mix sand with your sugar, isn't it? Well, you're on the side of the la-w this time, anyhow." . And the speaker laughed harshly. After a pause, in which Mrs Paton glanced furtively at the clock on the ' mantelpiece, he continu...

EAST-END ALIENS. A SELF-CENTRED COMMUNITY. MANNERS AND CUSTOMS. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 11 March 1911

EAST-END ALIENS. A SELF-CENTRED COMMUNITY. MANNERS AND CUSTOMS. | Public attention has been focussed on those aliens in our midst from whom 1 are recruited the violent desperadoes I guilty of actions such as have at the present moment shocked the entire pop ulace . (says the "Daily Telegraph". of December 22). | Generally speaking, they are allowed I to come and go at will. Their habits are not such as to attract much inter est among the general body of citizens. Living as they do in 'a locality which they have made almost exclusively their own, the searching light o£ publicity does not, as a rule, penetrate into their midst. Their doings hardly arrest at tention. Only at moments such as the present, when universal sorrow att a great calamity is tinged with indigna tion at such dastardly, conduct, is the public stirred into real Interest. Only at such times does the natural apathy as regards their mode of life give place to the desire for a keener knowledge, of the lives and nanners...

"HOT WATER BOTTLE" DOLLS. One oC the latest novelties in Amer- I ica, where the full rigours of winter will soon be felt, are "hot-water bottle" , dolls. . These have been put on the market under the catchy name of "Patty Comfort." They , can best be described (says the "Westminster Gazette") by a quotation from an ad- ' vertisement concerning them. "Patty ."Comfort (patented)." It runs, "feels like a livo baby when filled with hot water. The body Is a shaped hot water bag of best qualitv rubber hid den by clothing. Patty Delight Com fort (which Is illustrated) undresses, has a modelled baby face, wears a pink or blue . cape, coat, and white cap. : Post paid, 2 dols." It is inter esting also to learn that the "Comfort" family is obtainable in designs and sizes to suit all tastes. .

MANURING GRASS LAND. FERTILISING INGREDIENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 11 March 1911

MANURING GRASS LAND. FERTILISING INGREDIENTS. A recent publication by the German Agricultural Society contains a report on the experiments on meadows car ried ouf, jy Professor Wagner, of Darm stadt, during the last 10 years. In the second part of his report the professor discusses the question of manuring meadows on the basis of the results ob tained by him in his numerous experi ments. In the course of his remarks Professor Wagner says: "A short answer to the above ques tion would be 'By means of a manuring experiment.' Analysis oJ a soil is not of much use. It is-immaterial to the farmer liow much of the potash con tained in the soil is soluble in strong or weak, in hot or cold acid. He desires to know how much of the potash is cap able of being taken up by the roots of plants. To ascertain this, the plants themselves must be questioned, and a manuring test must be carried out. The farmer, however, is not very anxious to carry out such trials, and it is easy to understand his hes...

JOI JITSU FOR WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 11 March 1911

JU1 J1FSU FOR WOMEN. There is no need for any man, woman, or child who possesses ordinary, lioalth to become a weakling. In Japan, weak ness or illness aro considered to bo the misfortunes of oi)ly tho vory aged. Japanese look upon lack of strength as being a freak or eccentricity. Health is not created by mero combat, and physical training does not consist alone of swelling muscles, any more than does tho possession of a few easily learned tricks which make an athlete. To attain physical perfection wc must obsorve all tho conditions that bring it about-rules of .diet, tho habit of deep breathing of fresh air at all times, tho .wearing of proper clothing that does not impede tho free passage of air over tho body, frequent bathing, free use of water, regular rest, tho proper amount of recreation, and suilicient muscular exercise-all these things aro essential to those who would reap the benefits of tho physical training that has made tho Japanese, after some thing like twenty-live th...

CHRISTMAS SHOPPING. DAY IN THE WEST END. A MAN'S IMPRESSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 11 March 1911

CHRISTMAS SHOPPING; DAY IN THE WEST END. A MAN'S IMPRESSIONS. Accompanied by ari unerring gu'«'e (says a writer in the "Daily News"), I have devoted this exhilarating day to n, thorough exploration of the West End. as submerged by the fertilising flood of Christmas trade. To-morrow I hope to survive a similar experience in the E">st End,-and the comparison may be inter esting. We wandered slowly up Re gent's street, then along Oxford street and down Bond street, ending our tra vels with a wild dash in a taxicab to High street, Kensington, which proved to be the costliest plunge of all. Then we tried to collect our impressions, as others were trying with even .less suc cess to gather their parcels. First we thought in amazement of, the origin-the dual origin-of this ex traordinary annual spasm of money spending. To be frank, we saw little of the symbols of Christmas; 'we were not impressed by the show of cards, to.' take one instance. What seemed so strange was that the Birthday a...
