Known as the "Cheer-up Lady." [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 14 October 1905

u Known as the 'Cheer-up Lady.' A strange but admirable occupation is followed by an American lady, whose work in life is to go about diffusing brightness and contentment. She is known as the ' cheer-up lady.' Invalids and other sufferers send for her to amuse them, and nut them in good spirits. She reads newspapers or books to her clients, plays cards with them, gossips pleasantly, or tells stories. The question of remuneration is not al lowed to become obtrusive, and it is said that the people she visile regard her far more as a friend than n profosaiusol at tendant. She is an elderly lady of genial presence and full of tact and sympathy. Her voca tion, therefore, in one for which she is ! naturally fitted, and she has a large number of clients whose dejection and gloom are rapidly dispelled by ier wit and cheerful I1CSR. There is plenty. of work for those who adopt this profession, but it is clearly one in which great natural endowments are re quired.

The Popular Girl. The Secret of Her Success. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 14 October 1905

The Popular Girl. The Secret cf Her Success. What is the secret of some women's popularity with men ? It is not good looks ? it is not dress ; it is not money. You sac many a girl with alJ these excel lent qualities in abundance sedulously avoided by men ; while other girls, not ?ncciallr endowed in these ways, have a. constant stream of men in their walce. Dorothy Dix, who knows something of human nature, and specially of female hu man nature, maintains that a girl's popu larity with men is not a matter of chance; it is' the direct result of a thorough and scientific knowledge of how to ' jolly' a i man along, and in it, as in everything else, | success is the reward of the cheerful W Man'ii not vain, but, she says, he likes to be appreciated, and the girl whose bump of appreciation is the largest gets the violets and the candy. Man scorns flat tery, but he just naturally gravitates to ward the place where the particular brand of hot air he prefers i* wafted to him, and great is th...

Sydney Woman's Letter. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 14 October 1905

Sydney Woman's Letter. [By. Matsa.] The birth-rate commission ought to pat itself on the back, for the re turns show that the birthrate for September was the heaviest for a long time. It would not be a bad idea if the commission established a few ' Creches.' Through tbe efforts of a few chari tably disposed, Sydney will shortly have a ' Creche,' so that the poor little babies of bard-working mothers should be in for a good time. To gain funds for the 'Creche' several fetes have been held, and at Baud wick the other day a garden fete and handkerchief sale realised over £60. It will be a good day for these poor tiny miteB when there are dozens of ' Creches ' in Sydney and its suburbs. I think sensible women would do well not to copy tbe hat which re quires such a very exact angle : it is better for us to go in for those that can be placed on the head with some degree of security as to their position, and there are plenty of these at present. There is nothing prettier for those whom it...

Sunday Sport. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 14 October 1905

Sunday Sport. In the N.S.W. Legislative As sembly on Tuesday, Mr. Griffiths moved : — ' That leave be given to bringin a Bill to remove certain prohibitions against the carrying; of firearms and shooting on Sundays, to amend the Police Offences Act 1901, and (or other purposes.' He Baid he proposed to repel sec tion 19 of the Police Offences Act, except that portion relating to pigeon matches, because he regarded pigeon shooting as a | degradation of sport. Wholesome sport was no desecration of the Sabbath. He would enforce the law against all forms of Sunday trading, but would encourage the athletic form of the holiday. The object of the law as it stood at present, was to drive persons into tbe churches, but for every one so driven 200 were driven into hotels. He was not running counter to broad minded religious feeling. Mr. Gt'.ffiths's motion was nega tived by 48 votes to 7.

Below is presented the other side of this important question. DISCUSSION IN PARLIAMENT. Mr. O'Sullivan moved the adjourn ment of the House ' to consider the necessity for the Government at once contradicting in the most public manner a statement made in the press by some emigrants on their way to Chili respecting the difficulty of obtaining land iu New South Wales.' He said the statements in the newspapers were of a most damaging character to New South Wales. They would be cabled to Great Britian to the detriment of the State. The Minister for Lands gjiid Mr. O'Sullivan had performed a very use ful service iu directing attention to this matter, which had been given sensational headlines in the news papers.

On the Fringe of the Crowd. [By Onlooker.] 'Tbe Onlooker saosmostof *he Gone.' ' The roll was called earl; last week at Prairie Lands, near Forbes, but on tbe rouseabouts being told they would be paid by the day they struck, and the shearers joined them. Both the shearers and the rousaabouts then left-the station.' When you see a par like this it makes a- fellow feel tired. Where m the Arbitration Act that emerges into the light of day as the pacific de stroyer of strikes. We were told, and most of us believed when we sup ported it, that strikes would become a thing unknown. It was a shock when we found what the Act really aimed at, the settlement of minimum wages, length of hours, and other foolhardy attempts to settle the world's great trouble by a useless trifling with effects instead of causes. Now we recoenise that, while tbe Arbitration Court is lumbering along its disastrous path benefiting few except the lawyers, Billjim if he finds the tucker is not too good, or something e...

Immigration. THE WITHDRAWAL OF BOOTHS' SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 14 October 1905

Immigration. THE WITHDRAWAL OF BOOTHS' SCHEME. The following statement has been handed to the press by General Booth -- ' It is stated in the newspapers that several states of Australia are alarmed at the prospect of the flow ing in of a stream of emigrants not possessed of ample capital, and it would be difficult to satisfy them re garding the financial status of tbe settlers. A section of the press raised the cry that we were sending out the 'submerged tenth.' No such idea : entered our calculations. We believed that this idea was dying out, or was already dead, and that, with the ?? proposal of the Federal Parliament to amend the immigration laws, emigration on a careful and systematic plan would be heartily welcomed. This is apparently a mistake. It is evident that the moment is not opportune for emigration of the dimensions proposed. This view is confirmed by a conference with the Agents-General and other authorities in Australia resident hi London. There does not seem to exist...

The Wheat Harvest. AREA UNDER CROP. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 14 October 1905

The Wheat Harvest. AREA UNDER CROP. Mr. Hull (acting Government statist) has issued a report showing the area under cvop. The acreage under wheat is given as 2,220,000 aores, an increase on the previous year of 160,000 acres, or about 8 per cent. Of this average it is anticipa ted that 276,000 acres will be out for hay, but should dry weather continue the area may be considerably higher. The chief increases in the area under wheat compared with last seasons are as follows ; — Central western slope, 40,000 acres ; central western plain, 35,000 acres; south-western slope, 34,000 ; Riveriua, , 33,000; and north-western slope, 17,000. Referr ing to the different centres, Mr. -Hall says that in the northern tableland the area under wheat is set down at 20,000 acres, but the continuous dry weather and high winds during Sep tember have had a very injurious effect on the crops, wtiicK'ln many instances are in a backward condi tion. On the north-western slope the late crops are badly in need...

The John Lemmone Co. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 14 October 1905

The John JLemmone Co., The name of I-enimone has such valuable significance .in musical entertainment circles for high qual ity that we expected to see a full house to welcome him .after an absence from Corowa of four years. There was a fair audience,' how ever, in attendance on Thursday night; which,- if small in number, was thoroughly appreciative. Mr. John I^emmone has established such a high reputation as a, flautist that it is only necessary to1 say that, like.' old Wine, he isimprovingin quality, with age. In Briccialdi's beautiful caprice, ' Wind among the trees,?'

District News. HOWLONG. (From our own Correspondents.) I am very glad to welcome on be half of Howlong and district the ad vent of the Corowa ' Chronicle' in our midst, and hope it will help to bring Corowa and Howlong oloser together. There is no doubt, but that Oorpwa and Howlong in the past (considering the short distance that separates them and the importance of Corowa). have not been brought into its dose business relations with one another as they should. I do not know whether it is that Albury has served us better with papers or not, but there is no doubt that in Howlong, Corowa is hardly known, but I hope that closer business and other relations with Corowa will now take place. -I think one reason was that t& go from Howlong to Corowa one liad to take such a lonely ride, as there are only two stations be tween the two -towns, and also through not having a direct coach connection. It 18 to be hoped, now that the country is being cut up, that we will shortly have a tra...
