Morongla Creek. (Prom our own Correspondent). A heavy storm passed over here on Monday afternooD, accompanied by hoavy rain and bail]. The latter, though not so large as what fell last week, continued for a longer time, and cut down-garden plants of a tender kind. It was necessary to remove Mrs, Ben. Cannon, junr., to Cowra last week, where she still lies dangerously ill. Mr. and Mrs. W. B Langfield's in fant daughter is also in a precarious state of health. The many triends of those afflicted trust to soon hear of an improvement in the condition of the patients. Archdeacon Howell occupied the pul pit in the Church of England on Sunday morning last, and made a powerful ap peal to the congregation for support for the Bishop Camidge Jubilee Comment orBrion Fund, etc. There is now a resident blacksmith here, who no doubt will do a fair trade.

Trouble for Mr. Crawford. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 18 March 1911

Trouble for Mr. Crawford. It looks as if Mr. James Crawford, the member for Mt. Morgan, is going to be warmly toasted by the Labour organisations within his electorate. 16 will be remembered that when the. Bible in State Schools Bill was being forced through the House last session he and Mr. D. Mulcahy, one of Gympie'a Labour representatives, with a full sense of the opinions of their local Labour organisations and of their party, voted for the measure. Their action has been severely criticised and condemned in Labour circles, and in the former's case matters'have just aboutreached a crises. He sent along two years' subscription to the Alt. Morgan W.P.O., which the latter refused to accept, and returned it to him with an intimation that in conse quence he was not a member of the organisation. That is significant, and practically amounts to presenting him with his walking ticket. Mr. Crawford in his tributation is apparently desirous of posing as an injured individual, and is ioffere...

Wattamondara, (From our own Correspondent). The downpour of Tuesday night was highly appreciated after the dry spell which was devastating the good result of the previous rains at an alarming rate. Up to time of writing 135 points have been registered and the aspect of , the firmament promises a continuation ' of the fall'. The local bakery is completed and "Mr. Willis has everything in first-claBB working order.

THESE PEERS LIKE THE SIMPLE LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 18 March 1911

THESE PEEBS LIKE THE SIMPLE LIFE. There arc three peers, if' not. more, who belong to families that have for gpn oi'ations been settled indistant countries, and which have had practically nothing to do with their own land for many years. Indeed, some of these peers have never even set foot in England at all. There is, for instance, the Earl of Sea field. Early in the last century the then earl emigrated to Now oaland, and niarriod there. Iiis. sons have never seen their father's native land. The family lias remained, and to-day, James Grant Ogilvie, of New Zealand, 30 years of ago, and fllso married, is the undoubted Earl of Senfield, though he never uses tho title, but works hard with his hands to earn his living, just- like any new-comer into the colony. Then there is Baron Fairfax of Came ron, whose forefathers went out to Vir ginia Ions ago. The present lord was born in America in -18-70, and certainly .never used..hjs- rightful title, nor oven came to England until he was well ...

A BRITISH SOLDIER IN INDIA. An infantry regiment was stationed at P -, in India, at tile same time as a cortuin battery of artillery -was quartered there. There was great rivalry between the gunners and infantrymen, and at last it developed into a mutual dislike. 1'ho major commanding the battery was a great dandy, and liad-a habit of continu-. ally putting up and* dropping his single eyeglass, after which; he would pull out a bif$ white silk handkerchief with a flourish, wipe the,monocle carefully, and again stick it in lii.s «ye. Tlio battery was drawn jjp, on parade one day in full review order, when tlio men suddenly began to- snigger, and finally burst into uncontrollable laughter. Furi ous at sucli an unwonted breach of dis cipline, the major turned round to dis cover the cause, aiid to his speechless in dignation beheld a monkey dressed in an exact imitation of an artillery major's uniform.

PURCHASING A MOTOR CAR. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 18 March 1911

PURCHASING A MOTOR CAR. Last week-wo drew attention to tho error there is in thinking a rough and cheap car is suitablo for heavy country roads, and as a furtherance of our opinion, wo mention the Renault ear that has been used by Toohoys, Ltd., for the last year or so, in the Northern Rivers district. This car has been working over since it was purchased, generally carrying three persons and all thoir luggage, and has also been laden with cans of oil, petrol, etc., to the extent of a few hundredweight. So rough and bad are somo of tho roads thut four acetylene lamps aro carried to render travelling at night safe, and during the recent heavy.''rains, when roads aro considered impassable, this car, with nil its load, has managed to keep going. Such proof as this ought to settle all doubts as to which is tho right kind of car to got for country uso.

NATTJBAI. HISTORY NOTES. Hero is a bird story told by Mrs. Eliza beth Porter, an expert in hand embroid ery. She was working some time back with some scarlet sewing silk, when a goldfinch, which had built a nest a short distance away, and was searching for a lining for it, cast- covetous eyes on the spool. Just to see what it would do, Mrs. Porter tossed the spool into the grass and watched developments. After hopping about the bright object for some time and eyeing it suspiciously, tile bird scratched it over with one foot until it found the end. This it "grasped in its tiny beak and flew to its nest. The bird .was greatly surprised at the, length of the silk, hut, nothing daunted, it began to unwind the spool and line the nest. In the end, it used all the silk,. Mrs. Porter left her work basket on the verandah, and when she returned, half-an-hour later, six gold finches Were scratching over tlio con tents, and'rliaviiig*ti high old time looking for spools.
