THE BURGLAR'S OUTFIT. SOME REMARKABLE TOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 11 March 1911
THE BURGLAR'S OUTFIT. SOME REMARKABLE TOOLS. One of the "exhibits" produced at the Guildhall police court yesterday was a cylinder of oxygen gas, with pressure gauge, that had been found at No. 9, Exchange-buildings (says the "Daily Telegraph" of December 30.) Informa tion given to the police by Mr E. M. Roberts, concerning these two articles hag been of great value, and to a rep resentative of "The Daily Telegraph" last night he was able to describe their history before they came into the hands of the burglars. It will be remem bered that the City Police headquarters at Old Jewry issued a full description of the cylinder on Wednesday night, and urged all who might have any knowledge of it to at once communicate with them. On the dial of the pres sure-gauge was a number and the name of a firm -with which Mr Roberts is connected. ' This is an ordinary ap paratus, something like a housemaid's clock, and registers the amount of gas the cylinder contains. Mr Roberts remembered that he h...

THE LAIRD AND HIS MAN. HE FORGOT TO MENTION THAT. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 11 March 1911
THE lAIltD AND HIS MAN. HE FORGOT TO MENTION THAT! The following up of a report is often . as unprofitable as the search for the end of the rainbow, or.the childish at tempt to scoop the moon .up from a roadside puddle. It; is; however,, a' satisfying exercise, of na'ural instincts on the part of born \hunters. In "Itaiderlnnd" S. It. Crokkett gives an insitance of this readiness .to.,take iiip; a" clew and follow it to": the. end; . . A South country laird, with:: his.r-.man John, wore passing a hole in the moor,: when the laird turned his thumb over his shoulder and said: "John, I saw a tod (fox) gang i:i there!" "Did ye, indeed, laird?" cried John, all-his hunting blood instantly on-Are. "Ride ye your lane to toon; I'll howk the craitur-oot!" ' Back went John for pick and spade, ; having first, . of; .course, slopped the . earth. . The laird rode his way, and all day ' was foregathering with the cronies at the market town-a business in. which his henchman would ably and very will...
HOMELY FARE. SEASONABLE PUDDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 11 March 1911
HOMEIiY PARE. SEASONABLE PUDDINGS. Some very nice light puddings, suit I able for for the season, will be found among the recipes this week. Tomatoes are very plentiful, just now, 1 and as I have had many inquiries about tomato sauce, I describe a well tried method of making it. Many people seem unable to ripen their tomatoes completely, and these persist in asking how to make green tomato pickle. Without strongly re commending tlie preparation on my own account, I yield to the general desire and repeat the recipe. Lemon Pudding:-Beat up the yolks of two eggs, add the grated rind and juice of two lemons, 4 tablespoons sug ar, 2 tablespoons of.':, maizena, and 1 tablespoon butter. Put on the fire 1% pints water and when near boiling | and everything except the maizena, I which is mixed with a little cold water and put in last. Boil Cor ten minutes, put in glass dish, heat up whites of eggs with three'tablespoons sugar, and . put on top. Alexandra Pudding-Line a piedish with a thick l...

The Cowra Free Press USE SOFT WORDS AND HARD ARGUMENTS. SATURDAY, MARCH. 11, 1911. The Referenda. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 11 March 1911
03R SOFT WORDS AND HAltD ARGUMENTS. SATURDAY, MARCH. II, 1911. The Referenda. Are we, the people of New South Wales, prepared to surrender the rights and privileges in relation t> Home Rule we now enjoy nnder the liberal constitution ? is the question the electors will shortly be called upon to decide. While the State has power to legislate with regard to monopolies and industrial matters there is reallv nothing to be gained by extending the powers of the Commonwealth Parlia ment, and this we feel sure will bj the coiumonsense verdict of the ballot box. This should net be treated as a party question, and we feel sure that the effort that ia being put forth by certain sections of political thought in that direction muat fail. Loyalty to our .state must override all party consider ations, hence the men or women who blindly ciose their eyes to the sacrifices the State under the proposed new regime will be called upon to make must be regarded as oblivious to the best interests of .ou...

OliO STOCKINGS. HOW TO TURN THEM TO USE. ' Don't throw away old stockings. H is the most natural thing for a wit* and mother in this day of cheap hos lery to toss them aside, and thus mis; the opportunity of utilising them latel for housekeeping and other devices. Bui If there is a little girl in the familj who Is deft with fingers and needle, she can contribute largely to the household conveniences if given a few simple di rections. The flrst thing is to cut the foot off just above the heel, or, it the seam ii parting above this point, cut the lei oft until the seam ceases to break. Then split the leg at the seam, sew twe legs of the same size together in th«, form of a bag, turn them inside out anc then turn 'in, whip the end so that , there will be. no raw edges, and yoi' have the best of piano and furiture pol ishers. Stockings are so soft and easih cleaned that they also make fine sink or lamp cloths. Four or five pairs sewed into long strips and slipped through the mop will ma...
