EFFECTS OF THE DROUGHT. Oil Monday .the butter-sellers in Sydney raised the wholesale price of creamery by another penny, making it Is 3d per lb, and other grades) proportionately. The " oldest inhabitant " is beginning to recall the close of the " sixtiei," when best hand-made 'batter was retailed in Sydney at half-a crown per lb, and inferior graces of'"pastry" then had a brisk salo at two shillings per lb. The supply of millc iu the Camden district is daily decreasing,'and grass is extremely scarce in the chief dairying areas of New South Wales. Heavy. profits, ac crued and prospective, are understood to be the lot of merchants and.private speculators who bought hulter in New. South Wales', .Victoria and South Australia some weeks back, to place in cold storage for a rise. Melbourne and Adelaide ar6 short-stocked,, and . the Australian States may yet be obliged to import butter from new Zealand, despite the high (and biiherto prohibitive) tariff ;of 3d per ib.

Xia.©' Weatlaesv Rain still continues to hold off in the Bowral district, and the position- is be coming serious. A few points only haye , been registered during the last week. It is a long time since the' town and stir rounding country-- has presented such a parched and desolate appearance^ and farmers, dairymen, and others are at their wits' end to know how to provide food for their caftle and horses. - The supply of drinking water is also showing signs of an early failure, and'if rain does not soon come, householders will be forced ■into the necessity of carting their water for domestic use. The urgent need of a water supply for Bowral has once more, for the-hundredth. time, been tin-mistake-■ ably demonstrated,, and it is sincerely hoped that the efforts of the Bowral coun cil in endeavoring to obtain an economi cal water supply-will result in success. ,Good rain fell over the Central Wes tern district yesterday, ond also in patches over other parts of-the state.

CHEAP FOOD AT THE CHEMISTS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 12 March 1902

CHEAP FOOD AT THE CHEMISTS. Poods artifically made in the ulicm ist's laboratory may yet see the light. The Pasteur Institute has now shown that animal matter lias its origin in a form of nitrogenous sugar combined with an albumenoid, and in the latest researches it has been prov ed that nutritive substances can be built up from inorganic carbon, hy drogen, oxygen, nitrogen and other essential elements. In theory, food that is neither animal or vegetable is quite possible. The processes are likely to remain for a long time too expensive for commercial use, but it is suggested that the besieged cities of the future may ward off starvation by means of their chemical labor atories.

WHY HE DIDN'T PAY. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 12 March 1902

WHY HE DIDN'T PAY. A farm labourer was married last spring, and, not having sufficient money to defray the fee, he promised the officiating clergyman that • he would repay him with a hag of pot atoes as soon as they were ready for digging up. The clergyman waited a long time, but no potatoes were forthcoming, so he called upon the man and asked the reason. "Well, to tell yer the truth, guv'nor," was the laconic reply, "she ain't wuth it !"

B.D.A.H. and I. Society's Show. The Show at Moss Vivlo was concluded on Saturday. The attendance was very fftiv, and tbe weather conditions favorable. A little inconvenience was caused by the very dusty nature of the grounds, owing to the heavy traffic of the proceeding day,, but this could only be expected. The conclusion of the events in the horse scction were judged, the results hem;; appended. An ovent on which considerable interest oentred was the sheep dog trial, in which about six. com petitors entered. The winning dogs exhibi ted great intelligence and sraavlness in controlling the sheep, some of which turned out to be rather stubborn. Maiden Bros, won Che 1st, 2nd, aud 3rd prizes, with their three dogs, "Needle," " Chance,and " Darkey."

St. Patrick's Day. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 12 March 1902

-• St. Patrick's B>ay.. Mr. See's action fn refusing to cancel the proclamation of St. Patrick's Day as a public holiday is strongly condemned by the commercial community. The pre sident of the Sydney Chamber of Com merce on; Monday wired to Mr. Barton, with reference to the latest addition to the public holiday list. It is pointed out that many objectors, to a.public holiday on St. Patrick's Day aire .'themselves Irishmen, It is hoped that Mr. See will re-consider his decision. The Methodist Conference yesterday passed a resolution,■'.emphati cally protesting against St. Patrick's Day being set apart as a publifc holiday.. It is claimed that the anniversary of John Wesley's birthday, or St. George's, Day, might just as reasonably be proclaimed public holidays, as St. Patrick's Day.

ARE YOU AT THE SEA? [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 12 March 1902

ARE YOU AT THE SEA? ? If you bathe, wait till you liave been at least two days by tlie sad sea waves before having your first dip. Let your first dip be that and no thing else. No diving, plunging, nor swimming; just a splash about for three minutes and out again. Never indulge in a dip on an empty or full stomach, but just "between and betwixt." An hour or so after breakfast is the best time. If the eyes feel tired and dased from the glare of sun and sand, bathe them in laurel water made lukewarm.

WHAT THE BRITISH GROWN REALLY IS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 12 March 1902

WHAT THE BRITISH GROWN REALLY IS. The crown is, of coursc, the first power in the land. It is the one thing which exists in ICngland to-day as it existed a thousand years ago. Once, indeed, its power has been brok en, and many of its ancient .previ leges have gone for ever ; but through all the evolution and revolution of the centuries the principle for which the crown stands lias survived. ****** Long ago, when the Crown was more absolute than it is now, the English Monarch had alarming power. The Crown had the right to purchase property at its own valuation with out the consent of the owner, and to seize horses and carriages at its own royal will. It would erect its own courts, with which ordinary law could not interfere, and it had the right to dispense with ordinary law altogether. It created its own taxes and Parliament fought for centuries before it could deprive the Crown of this privilege. It could refuse to al low certain persons to be members of Parliament, however many ti...

" A CENTURY OF SCOTTISH HISTORY." [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 12 March 1902

"A CENTURY OF SCOTTISH HISTORY." Sir Henry Craik, in his recent work entitled as above, has wisely confined himself to a period—the most import ant and interesting in Scottish his tory—so within his limits he can be comprehensive and exhaustive. His work is marked by wide research, ju dicial thought, and much philosoph ical insight. The century of which he treats was an era of revolution and evolution. The old feudal had been upset; over the whole of the island, to the Shetlands and the far Hebrides the reign of law superseded patriar chal misrule, and repressed the out rages of banditti who were a terror to civilization. A country with an un genial climate and much sterile soil, always proverbial for turmoil and poverty, entered with over-accelerated pace on a course of extradorinary prosperity. In 1850, Glasgow, now the second city in the Empire, was already great and flourishing, enrich ed by industries and commerce. In 1750 it was a pretty rural town of 13,000 inhabitants, on a ...

THE MAN-DOG. A TRAGIC STORY OF MAGNOLIA ISLAND IN THE BLACK SWAMP. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 12 March 1902

THE MAN-DOG. A TRAGIC STOBY OF MAGNOLIA ISLAND IN THE BLACK SWAMP. • My first knowledge of the singular being called " Du Ohieu, the Man-Dog," be;;nii when wo were on duty down in the Pecho country,a short time after General Taylor's celebrated" lluu on the Banks," hi the vicinity of Mansfield. Tlie'cavalry had really very l'ttle to do except "to feeil " and await orders. As a result of this idleness many of the officers and men formed pleasant acquaintance's with the hospitable planters in whose neigh bourhood we were located. One of the planters whom I found to be most congenial was Captain Martas, a French Creole, whose father had come from Lunguedoc. He was himself native born. He was a man nf forty-eight or fifty years of age, and had two sons by his first marriage, who were in the army . of Virginia, and a boy two years of age, by his second wife, who was a yontiff and beautiful lady. The housekeeper was a mulatto girl, who wai.'in every physical development almost a perfect b...

HUNGER OR GLUTTONY? [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 12 March 1902

HUNGER OR GLUTTONY 1 Hunger is the natural expression of the need of the system for nutrition. Appetite is the index as to the quan tity of food that should be taken to replace the loss by waste. It shquld never be overruled. Appetite is a wise provision of nature. Gluttony is a degrading fault. Yet numbers of people attempt to justify the gratifi cation of their gluttonous proclivities by the statement that they are "blessed with a good appetite," while the truth of the matter is, they are cursed with an inordinate lust for food. If people were more temperate in the pleasures of the table, the purveyers of remedies for dyspepsia would find their incomes considerably lessened. Satisfy your hunger, by all means, but do not pan der to the vice of gluttony. ' In like manner, satisfy your thirst, but do not deluge the system with an excess of fluid. Do not mistake the artificial craving for pleasant drinks for the natural appeal of the body for liquids. Thirst is not quenched by pouring...
