MR. SOUSA. THE GREAT MARCH KING. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 18 March 1911
MR. SOUSA. THE GREAT MARCH KING. (By Harry Trevor, In tlie London "Express.") Tlie pictures of a dark, bearded man In plncenez and a military cap which just now are to be met with at every turn announce the advent of one who say what you will-Is a force in music that has ,to be seriously reckoned with, for the work of, no man who has appealed successfully to millions of his fellow-beings-as Sousa has done-can be lightly passed over. The superior person-or, rather, the person who considers himself a superior person-is prone to wax face ! tlous not only over the way in which the March King practises his profes sion, but because he makes music through the- medium of a brass or military band, and often by means which ?pu.rists consider to be illegiti mate. True, the ideal environment of the brass band is the open air, with the moderating influence of wind and tide to chasten it3 more brazen utter ances, but so, I venture to think, it is for many a piece in the performance of which the a...

THE CONSCIENCE OF CONSTABLE X44. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 18 March 1911
iriE CONSCIENCE OF CONSTABLE X44, Ey JAMES DONALD. * .Constable X44 was a policeman of whom the community might well be proud. A bulwark-and a very sub stantial bulwark, too-of strength and protection to' the peaceable, and a terror to all evildoers, he occupied a pinnacle which justly entitled him to feel very well satisfied with himself. Yet as with slow and panderous steps he authoritatively paced the street a frown of dissatisfaction might have been observed clouding his brow. The fact was, the eonsLuble enter tained a grievance against the before mentioned evildoers-a grievance which had its source not so much in their misdeeds as in their absence. For more months than he could recall not a single crime had occurred in his dis trict! In one sense this was no doubt eminently satisfactory, but from the constable's point of view it was quite the reverse. Beneath his blue tunic the fire of ambition burned fiercely; he longeid for an opportunity to distin guish himself, and thereby ...

i Trotting Club Meeting. The second meeting of the above took place on Thursday antler ideal weather conditions, but it is matter for regret that owners exercised the scatching pen so freely as to rob the events of all interest. Tho arrangements were in the band? of Mr. J. H. Mcintosh (hon. sec.), who made tho most; of a very trying situation, in which he wac asaisted by several members of the committee. Dr. Foley officiated as judge, Mr- J. Whiteman as starter, Mr. J. J. Anderson as clerk of the scales, and Mr. P. Ii. Boyne timekeeper. Messrs. H. J. Njcholls, A. EL McLeod, and A Moriarty attended to the gates, sale of tickets, etc. We are not in a position to give an opinion as to the reason for the paucity of accep tors, but in some cases, at lesst, the handicapping was decidedly faulty.

A FATAL JOKE. Fancy Dress Prank Ends in a Tragedy. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 18 March 1911
A FATAL JOKE. Fancy Dress Prank Ends in T ragedy. The terrible outcome of a holiday jok* is reported from the wilds of Sicily. Two young women who had t.-iiccu part in somo Christmas festivities had' ended up at a masked ball. Anna Ripili and her niece, Antonina i'olizi, a girl of 10, thought it would lie a graud joke to visit a relative, Luigi Savarino, steward on the big esUita near Parinieo, dressed as Sicilian brigands. Their disguise was all too effective, for when they approached Savarino's house ha mistook Hiern for tlie real article, ran in doors, came out on the balcony, and, gun in hand, called out, "Who'* that ?" The two women did not reply' but pointed their harmless unloaded weapons straight at the frighteincd steward. Savarino then fired two shots. One killed the younger woman, and the oilier seriously injured her aiint. On discovering his mistake Savarino took to his heels, lie is still in hiding.
Freak Sportsmen. THEIR QUEER TRICKS. SOME AMAZING WAGERS AND CONTESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 18 March 1911
Freak Sportsmen. THEIR QUEER TRICKS. , SOME AMAZING WAGERS AND j CONTESTS. The history of sport is the history of B.igland-at any rate, so far as the charac ter of its people is concerned. This fact is strikingly borne out by Mr. Ralph Nevill's latest book, "Sporting Days anil Sporting Ways" (Duckworth). There are stories illustrating their recklessness in the way of sport and gambling; others throw ing a curious sidelight on the bullying ways of the well-to-do in the "merrie" days of old, and the cringing attitude of the masses towards tile wealthy; there are stories of "bucks" and dandies; hunters and boxers; duellists and poachers; gay Lotharios and bewitching damsels-all of which help one to understand, perhaps better than any historian could tell, the character of the people contemporary witli our grandfathers and great grandfathers. AN ECCENTRIC NOBLEMAN. Perhaps one of the most extraordinary characters described in the book is Lord Waterford, a constant frequenter of the spor...

Already in 1883 this country bad nwrc divorces than all the Test of the Christian civilised world put together.
