BABY'S PARLIAMENT. MOTHERHOOD CONFERENCE. SCIENTIFIC INFANTOLOGY. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 20 May 1910
BABY'S PARLIAMENT. MOTHERHOOD CONFERENCE. ' . . Sn rTONTIFIC INFANTOLOGY. 'Mr Charles Hand, writing to tho "Daily Mall" from Liege, on the 17tH September, states:— The first international congress upon tho education and household management of tho infant commences its labors here to-morrow in the Uni versity Buildings. It Is the first In fants' Parliament ever held sinco about the Year Two, when the cry of infancy originally made itself heard. Ever since the home treatment of tho infant has been the subject of unceas .ing thought and continued varied' ex periment. But the opening of the Liege Con tention, for which tremendously ear nest and learned-looking unmarried ladies, who seem everywhere to be great authorities on the subject, aro already assembled, reminds one that riever before has child study been re cognised as a subject of organised scientific research. As one of the leaVried spinsters explained to me to da'y, "woman has always been so much occupied in obtaining the baby ...
WHAT CHEAPNESS MEANS. WOMEN'S CLOTHES IN THE MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 20 May 1910
WHAT CHEAPNESS MEANS WOMEN'S CLOTHES IN THE MAKING. In a bare, close, dirty little room In one ot the mean streets down East I came upon a family of match-box work ers. Steadily and continuously they kept to their task of match-box making. One spread the labels along the table, an other ran the paste brush down them, a third bent the wood over and pulled it over the labels, and the box was com plete. Time and practice has made them quick at the work. You have to be quick if you are to make a living at match-box making, when match-boxes are paid for at 2%d a gross, and you provide your own paste, and you are fined for wasted material i£ the box does not suit. But I had not gone into this nelghbor | hood to see match-box makers. I had gone to study clothcs. No doubt it Is a | beautiful thing that clothes are cheaper in this country than in almost any coun try in the world. It probably never occurs to a bargainer as she carries off a made article and congratulates herself that tha stuf...

A MODERN "WITCH." A FARMER DEFRAUDED. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 27 May 1910
A MODERN "WITCH." A FARMER DEFRAUDED. The tria1 st Erfurt, in Germany (says the "Dailj Mail") of a so-called "Wise Woman" for defrauding ,a rich farmer and his family brought to light an ex traordinary case of superstition. The farmer, >vho owns a large estate near Naegelstadt, six years ago met with some ill-luck, anr' at once concluded that he was "possessed by the devil." The "Wise Woman" of Langensalza, who was consulted, confirmed this belief, and was requested by the farmer to relieve him of the Evil One. She went about it with many cere monies, which wound up with the burial in the earth at dead of night of an ordi nary new pot, in which the farmer had previously placed a considerable amount of money. After the pot was buried, the farmer, his family, and the "Wise Woman" retired some distance and waited. Suddenly there came a slight Hash and a little explosion on the spot where the money was buried. The peasants were awestrieken, and the "Wise Woman" at once declared, "The...
NO THEFT FROM A BOOKMAKER. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 27 May 1910
NO THEFT FROM A BOOK MAKER. In a case heard at the Old Bailey re cently a novel point was raised. Krnest Davidson was charged with stealing L9 13s 10d from his employer, a bookmaker, who had sent him into the streets to receive betting slips. The money stolen was for use In the betting business. Mr Wickham (for the defence) sub mitted there was no case against the pri soner. Street betting was Illegal, and therefore the prosecutor and the prisoner were engaged In an unlawful occupa tion. rPlie Common Serjeant said this was no defence. A man could be convicted of s-tealing from a thief. The Jury returned a verdict of "Not guilty." and the prisoner was discharged.

LONDON'S NIGHTS. HUNGER'S TRYST. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 27 May 1910
LONDON'S NIGHTS. 1 HUNGER'S TRYST. Harold Owen writes in the "Dally ■ Mall" of 4th February:— Under "Waterloo Bridge, and stretching beyond against the Embankment wall, is ranged the army o£ outcasts who come . !here every winter night to be fed—to sap ere they have dined. -Further West, at .Charing Cross, is another detachment of ■ 1 - the same army, and between them the draggled outcasts among womankind keep a separate station. In the road way a covered cart from which men s - wearing the caps of the Salvation Army are lifting huge cans of soup. Piles of enamelled tin bowls and little heatps of loaves, already sliced, lie waiting 0:1 the pavement. Three deep the army ot outcasts waits. Late recruits shamble 'across the roadway from time to time to ; . '~ "&lt;30in-the ranks. They are coming to keep Hunger's Tryst. A few policemen, with almost the wide pavement to themselves —for the outcasts keep close to the wall —walk up and down the line, marshal ling them in their pfac...
GIRL GRADUATES. OF "THE SILENT SISTER." [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 27 May 1910
GIRL GRADUATES. .OF "THE SILENT SISTER." The Tcnnysonian phrase,' "girl gradu ates," was something in the nature o£ a prophecy. But though the two-groat Universities of Oxford and Cambridge still deny to women who liavo passed their qualifying test the right to wear the academic dress and to make use of the degree which are the outward sym bols of the graduate, the University of Dublin, long known as "The Silent Sister,'" has fulfilled the prophecy, and given body to the poet's dream. The King's letter, obtained on January 16, 1904, threw the doors of Trinity Col Jege open to women, and the hall-mark .c^cor was placid within i». I '■ The lificWffTnovemfiiFwSS'. attended with remarkable results. It long had been the custom to confer on graduates of Oxford and of Cambridge a. degree ad eundem gradum, upon pay ment of a fee of L10 3s, and when the Senate decided to confer degrees on women it was felt that those who had qualified in the great sister Universities should share precisely t...

THE FRENCH NAVAL OFFICER. "M.B.-H." writes to the "Westminster Gazette":—'"Loti must not be taken :is the mouthpiece of the French lia'vy. 1 have not, it is true, enjoyetl tlie unique experience of Miss Gordou-Cuiiiming and travelled 011 a Freuch man-of-war. But in Algeria and at Brest I have oc casionally met naval oilicers, and they always struck me as being friendly and outspoken. Some time.since, however, moreover, I met at a country house in Burgundy an old captain who, I believe, fairly represented his class, arid-this i» a. time of pin-pricks. He spoke English fairly well, and was enthnsiastic on the subject of his English brethren, many of whom he had known in India and CUtaa.

HOTELS AND TRAVELLERS. THE BIRTH OF THE RESTAURANT CAR. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 27 May 1910
HOTELS AND TRAVELLERS. \>r THE BIRTH Ol'Ji THE RESTAURANT CAR. | It Is a quarter cf a century since that boon to travellers, , the restaurant-car, was' introduced by the Belgian Railway Company, to whlclil the waggon-lit also owes its existence. Considering that be fore then, the wretched traveller was left to starve between Flushing and Merlin, between Calais and Basle, between Os tend and Vienna, unless he happened to snatch a topic! cup of bouillon on the Dutch frontier, a "drum-stick" at Laon, or a cotelette (wrapped In paper!) at the borders of Belgium, the jubliee of the dining - car may well be celebra ted as a joyful occasion. Still, there is room for improvement, and One alteration that suggests itself is that the next set of breakfast cups introduced should be of a shape which is less liable to scatter the contents in all directions ' whenever the carriage gives a lurch, | which generally happens at intervals o£ I rather less than a minute. The "morning temper" is not t...

Some robberies of cattle in this district are reported. In Coronil whole families of tlie ...
