Superiority. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 28 August 1909

Superiority. We much despise the humble Fly, And yet I have a feeling, That he is cleverer than I At walking on the ceiling, As well as 011 a window-pane, Without appearing to be in vain. We rather scorn the William Goat, As on our way we're strutting, But, haughty friend, I'd have you note He beats our kind at butting ! I know that what I say is true — I've had them butt me. Haven't you? We patronise the Mother Hen And note her lack of knowledge, But I have known a lot of men Who've spent four years in college Who couldn't lay a simple egg — No, not if it cost them a leg ! And so I say that when we think We're smarter than these others, That they are wholly on (the blink Beside our human brothers, We might reflect that in their style 1 They've really got us skinned a mile !

The King Approves the Carnegie Medal. The photograph of the design for the Carnegie Hero Medal was submitted to the King at Biar ritz, and finally approved by His Majesty. The medal has now been struck 111 bronze. It will be remembered that Mr. Andrew Carnegie gave a quarter of a million pounds with which to found a Hero Trust Fund, the interest upon which amounts to ^12,500 per annum. This sum will oe spent 111 grants to living heroes, and pensions to dependents of those who lose their lives in an endeavor to save others. In the case of the hero who survives the grant will be supplemented by a medal . The obverse of the medal shows two symbolical figures; one that of a winged angel, a messenger of Ivight to mankind appearing from the great central source of Light, holding aloft in one hand the ever-burning lamp which lights the way to higher attainment. The other figure represents Man who has received from the Angel of Ivight a palm branch, the emblem of Peace. The angel inspires a...

Map of the Heavens to foretell Disasters. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 28 August 1909

Map of the Heavens to foretell Disasters. The chief work laid out for the International Map Congress which is shortly to be convened in Paris is making a map of the heavens. Nothing ?quite so colossal has ever been attempted by men of science. Seventeen great observatories 'in ad dition to that of Paris have been working at the task for the last twenty years. During this time hundreds of astronomers have been photographing the nocturnal sky. The observatories include those of Rome, Greenwich, Potsdam, Helsingfors, Ox ford, Bordeaux, Toulouse, Santiago, in Chili, Perth in Australia, the Cape. Svdnev. and Melbourne. The work has been carried on under the pat ronage of the French Academy of Science, and is well under way, though it is estimated that the making of a complete sky map will take at least forty years and will require at least 22,054 photo graphs, At present, 2,200 have been printed and ?f 'graved. And what use will it serve when all is done ? A very practical use will be th...

Sporting Sparks. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 28 August 1909

: '- Sporting Sparks. [By Snookered.] Snooker's Pool has quite taken on at the Katoomba School of Arts, and the greater number of the local cueists are becoming. ex- perts on the snooker table. It is quite re freshing to see such numbers present in the room each evening witnessing the many keen and exciting games in progress. The arrival of the snooker rules quite upset the modus operandi of the game on the part of some of the players' knowledge acquired years ago. ?X- -X- -X- Why does Baldy find out that he has an important engagement outside when Tod joins in with the snooker players ? Who is going to win the billiard tourna ment ? is at present a query of a rather difficult brand, seeing that so many of the novices are making such good shows. For instance, look at Chambers and Lotinga, and there's Mac, the merry Scot, beating all before him. By the way why does Mac not seem to appreciate the humor of Hoff's good Scotch wit related round the cosy fireside of the billiard room. -X-...

Joan of Arc. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 28 August 1909

y;^;'3bsiiri of 'j&re2c , Andrew I^ang lias produced a 'fine piece of his torical work in liis recently published. *' Maid of France.' . We are so familiar with the story of Jeanne D'Arc, or as we are all more used to call ing her, Joan of Arc, that as our author says, 'an effort of imagination is needed before we can appreciate the unique position of the 'Maid of History.' This latest and most complete record of her life is the result of an exhaustive study of the great mass of existing evidence, contemporary or otherwise, about her. Thestorv of the Maid's career as it emerges in these pages is indeed so wonderful, that it is puzzling to find any adequate explanation, if we reject the Maid's own asser tions of supernatural aid, an explanation frankly adopted by Andrew Lang. To avoid such a con clusion theories offering a rational explanation — so called — of her career have been advanced. Her military achievements have been minimised by writers who find it too difficult to ...

At the Gates of the Desert. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 28 August 1909

At the Gates of the Desert. BY A BANKER. Guarding the approach of that arid and barren ocean of driven sand, the I/ibyan Desert, and al most beneath the shadow of the mightiest structure ever erected by man upon this earth, stands that strange wonder of the ancient world, the Great Sphinx. And well might those superstitious and deluded worshippers of crocodiles and mummied cats, Osiris and Horus and Ptah, regard the im passive monster with awe and with the profound est reverence ; well might they look upon it as C11UUWCU W1L11 LlClUCimVUS clUUiUllLJ CU1U. JJUVVCl , and with the absolute control over their destinies, both in his life and in the realms beyond the tomb. For to us even, of this more intelligent age, emancipated from those insensate delusions which held those mighty ancients in an iron grip, and sunk them down in abysmal and benighted ignor ance, it is a thrilling experience to stand, at sun set before the towering, majestic form of the stupendous figure. Now, starting a...

Education and Marriage. EFFECT OF ONE ON THE OTHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 28 August 1909

Education and Marriage. EFFECT OF ONE ON THE OTHER. It is feared that education is causing a decrease iu the number of marriages in proportion .to the population ; assuming that this fear is justified, what are the reasons for this effect of additional instruction ? It may be said in outline that educa tion makes people think more and thus causes them to skrink from the responsibilities of wedded life ; in some instances this is as it should be, but in others it is quite a wrong tendency and should not exist. THE UNEDUCATED CLASSES Are apt to jump into matrimony at an early age and without in any way considering whether the husband earns enough to keep two, to leave the prospective family entirely out of the question. This occasionally leads to deplorable results, al though in many cases it induces effort which ultimate^ ends in improved conditions. As people acquire more knowledge they will not rush so hurriedly into marriage, but will wait and work a year or two longer, so that th...
