THE CASTLE OF CRIMSON WINDOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 29 April 1910
THE CASTLE OF CRIMSON WINDOWS. i (By W. E. CHURCH.) Was there over such a toy? Had ■Queen Titania, visited me and told of a more enchanting one I could not have believed her. The toy was bier, too—made from a ,tea/ chest. I had hung with delight over picture-books, .seen Amy Robsart's Keni'lworth, and also Fothoringay, where the axe fell on Mary • Stuart's neck, but none of tlie romantic buildings enchained my fancy "like the "Castle of Crimson Windows." It was built for mo when I was seven by an assistant scenc painter at Old Sadler's Wells, by name Pierre Wizard. When work was slack at the theatre he did odd jobs at our house ! in Pentonvillc. -The 'artist '.was so ' good-natured and^obliging that we all j called him Pierrot He talked like "an actor 011 the stage, and used such j hard words that I was?/ frequently ; puzzled. Yet'those oddities mattered; little when I looked, on my plaything, i -Wren himself or Gilbert Scott could not have explained the order, of ar-, chitecture. T...

LONDON RECRUITING. HOW IT PROCEEDS. They were?about a score in number— keen-eyed, lean of body, and alert in mind, they had passed the doctor and their "characters" were blameless, so they only waited to be sworn in to start their servicS for King and country. Some of these typical Cockney lads had lived in a martial atmosphere for the past four or live days while their antecedents were being .carefully inquired into.

NOT A TRUE FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 6 May 1910
NOT A TRUE FARMEU. Every considerate man realises that a true farmer feeds his soil as well as his cattle. The soil feeds the plants which are grown for the stock, and, of course, it cannot give up its elements year after year with out receiving something in return, any more than the dairy cow can give milk day alter day without feed. Land can go on longer with-, 'out food than the cow, but it will sooner or later require some sort of food, just as the cow needs to be fed if she lives and remains productive. The good farmer realises this, and is doing everything in his power to carefully maintain the fertility that is in his soil. He puts back each year on his land as much fertility as his crops take from it. A man that can grow^crops year after year from the soil, and still keep the land fertile and productive, .as it was when he took it, is a true farmer and a benefit to the world. We condemn the rich man's son for carelessly ^squandering the fortune his fathelvnas left him, but h...
