A LEG-PULLING ACTRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 11 March 1911
A LEG-PULLING ACTRESS. "Ever since I have been in Australia we have been dying to meet a newspaper man," said Miss Florence Vie to the Wil liamson press agent during a wait In ."Our Miss Gribbs." "Do you know," she added, "I quite envy you your association -with press men." ' "How is that?" "We]l,":said the comedy actress, "they set such a_ high standard of excellence by their criticism of ?plays. They seem to live in a world apart. Nobody ever meets them, not even soubrettes. They must breathe a very rarified atmosphere. Our best musical comedy authors fail to bring them to earth, and they are sensitive to the slightest solecism. With the limited space at their command they tell us so much that I feel a quarter of an hour's talk [with a critic would make mo a geni us. 'I know I should 'be awfully nervous if I- mift. one.

NAILING A RUMOR Lord Dudley's Retirement. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 11 March 1911
I NAILING A RUMOR I Lord Dudley's Betirement. | It will be remembered that the rumour which flashed across the Commonwealth of Lord Dudley's retirement attracted considerable attention, and'Lord Dudley's Private Secretary, Mr. Callan, was quo ted as being associated with the Dublin "Freeman's Journal" in connection with that report. '.However, it is interesting now to road the other side of tho case, ?which appoars .iira recent issue of the "Freeman." Tli0 journal states: .: "Some time ago our London correspon dent mentioned a rumour that Lord Dud ley-was about to retire from his high office in Australia, and was likely to bo succeeded by Lord Pentland. Rumours of vice-regal retirements are not infre quent, and the denial of them usually follows fast on their publication. 'Pin* particular paragraph, however, caused quite a stir in Melbourne. The Mel bourne 'Sun' t(sic), not satisfied with taking the rumour from the London cor respondent of the 'Freeman,' found 'coi. firmation' for i...

GOLF LINKS AT THE HOTEL KOSCIUSKO. This-summer attractions of Mount Kos ciusko arc to bo enhanced 'by tlio laying-out of golf links. The matter lias been under consideration for some little time, but the idea has now been advanced a step.

Last week Mr. Carnegie Clark, with Mr. Ross Gore, Secretary of the Royal Sydney Golf Club, and the Act ing Director of the Immigration and Tourist Bureau, -Mr. E. Itayment, proceeded to Mount Kosciusko and made a detailed inspection in the im mediate vicinity of the hotel. Messrs. Clark and Gore agree that the_ forma^ tion of tho country, will permit of a nine-hole courso about 2,650 yards in length being laid, which will probably prove to bo tho best inland courso in Australia.

An Old Cowraite's Death. THE LATE MRS. JAMES HAUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 11 March 1911
An Old Cowraite's Death. THE LATE MRS. JAMES HAUGH. Thus the Twofold Bay "Magnet:" —" One by one are our old and re- spected residents passing over to the great majority, and scarcely a week passes in which some one of onr links with the past in this district is not broken asunder. On this occasion it is our painful duty to record the pass- ing away of Mrs. Jas. Haugh, of Eden, which sad event came about at 2.30 a.m. on Friday last. The de- ceased old soul must have been a woman of wonderful constitution, for she has been on the verge of death on &nbsp; quite a number of occasions since she took so seriously ill about three months ago; and despite the fact that she suffered greatly during that period her extraordinary strength sustained her when the last, seemed about to come, and she would rally in a surprising manner for a person of so great an age—75 years. Not for one moment hardly did the old lady's faculties desert her, happenings of years back being related in times o...

"Not Thomas." &nbsp; " Tom Richard Johnson." said the Chief Railway Commissioner, in a son- orus bass voice—the best of any witness whose evidence, has yet been taken— when asked his name, in the usual for- mal way, as he began his evidence at the Decentralisation Commission.
