Stray Notes. To the Editor Bowral and Robertson Free Press. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 27 July 1901

IStray Notes. To Ike $4{for P.oyml and Robertson Free Prcts. Sir.—-I* Ss rumored that at least two .of: our local industries will shortly havs to: be closed—the sawmill at-Mount Murray,, and the eucalypti works at Upper Alitta f?on£ The sawmill lias heen a boon to the surrounding district, as people could go to the mill and get timber cut to suit the purpose they required it for, and of the very best quality, and the prices charged by Messrs. Seery and Co. are extremely reasonable. Let us hope that " Johnny Federal " will shortly make the necessary arrangements thit will enable Mr. . Seer)' to keep the kettle boiling at the old mill. The eucalypti industry should also re ceive early attention, and to protect this industry the men employed in stripping the leaves should not be allowed to fall the trees., It looks too much like wilful destruction of valuable forests. The leaves can be taken from the trees with out damaging the trunks, hence the per manency of the supply. " That the su...

F, AGRICULTURAL CO-OPERATION, (By J. L. Dow, in the Leader.) One ol the most interesting visits by the writer was to the headquarters of the Far mers' and Settlers' Association of New South Wales in Ike-Queen ViotoHa market buildings, George-Btreet. This association, although only in the third year sineo its iuception, has made remarkable progress alike in its commercial success, and in its marked iuflnence upon the governing au thorities wilh respect to much required ag ricultural reforms, It is .generally admit ted that to this association . the present Government is largely indebted for its big majority at the recent elections. It ob tained a combined country vote, because it bad adopted in its platform the .agricultural reforms previously worked for by the- asso ciation. Before the elections eacli candid ate was supplied with a copy of the socie ty's manifesto, on which Land Act reforms assumed the leading place.

"Bowral & Robertson Free press. Saturday, July 27,1901. THE CLEMENCY OP KITCHENER. The Commander-in-chief of His • Maj esty's forces in South Africa, Lord Kit-; chener, was," as Sirdar ip Egypt, in pos session of a:sanguinary reputation! . This was because he employed to the fullest the most effective weapons of modern vvarfare against the compact and absurdly equipped host,of the Khalifa. But the Sirdar, in the circumstances, had no choice but to mow do\yn fierce and an atical humanity. All the same, half civ ilisation'regarded him an iron-jawed and frozen-hearted Herod. When Kitchener went to South Africa humanitarians pray ed that Lord Roberts would prevent any barbarities. Well, Kitchener, when war ring against white men of European des cent, did not evoke ljostile criticism, ex cept ffom those who would have had him bash the brains .out of every Boer who fell into his hands. And when Roberts handed over the command to him he pre ferred' to conduct the campaign with scru...

The Orb of Night. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 27 July 1901

The Orb of Night. BY A BANKER. Nearly one half of its surface shrouded in eternal night, the other half scorched and burnt up by the never-setting mighty ruler of the day, aud hot glare from whqse glow ing fires, unimpeded by any veiliug atmos phere, from age to ago uniutermittently flashes down upon her, our satellite, though so beautiful to us, must yet be an arid,, sterile wilderness, void and dismal, aud but a ghastly, lifeless waste. For, as no water and no air exist upon the moon, neither can the great principle— life—have any being there; therefore on that parched desert bloom no flowers, nor do forost trees rear their lofty heads, nor herbage clothe the plaius and valleys with verdure; no winds aud storm's rage among st those mountain passes, and no thunder peals reverberate round those inert craters, nproared peaks, and groat rocky pinnacles. And though on one hemisphere the sun is ever shining, yet he has no outspread rays, and appears like a great fiery disc, which hurls ...

A SUCCESSOR TO JOSH BILLINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 27 July 1901

A SUCJOESSOJR TO JOSH BILLINGS. The philosophy of VV. Abrlnl Suliemnn, the .South African successor to Josh Billiugs, is being largely quoted. These are his latest utterances:— ■ , Men talk logic, women act it. Above a certain rank women are waited i lipon ; below it they do the waitiug. Some members of Parliament are capable of nothing; others are capable of anything. It pays to be magnanimous, -for it is cheaper to forgive your enemy than to sup port a lawyer. Ho is a very lonely man indeed who has no vices. , A woman's. heart beats faster than a man*8 ; so does her tongue. Money being the root of all evil, everyoue should try to do all the good he can by get ting it away from other people. A monopoly is like a baby—a man is op posed to it on general principled until he has one-of his own. The man who has seen better days com mands pity ; hut how about the man who has seui- butter ui^hi;; V . It ia easier to earn money than not to upend it,
