MITTAGONG. HOW MITTAGONG GOT ITS NAME. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 4 December 1901

MITTAGONG. HOW MITTAGONG GOT ITS NAME. Before Nattai had changed its ofden nnrtie — Its sylvian scenes bad won their present fame, A German, ono day pitched liis lowly tent, And (arming soon became his daily bent. Nor were his efforts nil ill vain, For when there fell the bounteous rain— Its timely draughts Boon wet hie seed-set field— An abundance of produce wan its yield. The seasons came, and time flovr on a pace ; Dame Fortune bowed to him with richest graoe: And numerous hands ho gathered soon around, To till and sow his still oxpanding ground; And neighbours too, he soon bad many, But German friends he hadn't nny; Besides good Hans there wasn't one Who spoke the broken English tongue j And children Boon began to mock, Which gave good Hans no little shock." The young men too, poor Hans did chaff, And at his English efforts laugh. And soon there wasn't one in old Nattai, Who'd pass our German friend as he went by Without them saying e'en " good day," To hear his German-English B...

I'here is nt)t & more beautiful spot about here than the Wombeyan Caves, and if the townspeople do not shake the Government up a bit they will bave a poor chance of having the road repaired.

VEGETARIANISM. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 4 December 1901

VEQ ET AKIANISM. Perhaps no stronger argument could be advanced in favor of a vegetable diet than the enormous bulk, strength, and undurance of the Japanese wrestlers. Imagine a set of men, the tallest not more than live and a half feet high, with weight ranging from 200 to 8001bs., chest girth varying from 44 to 58 inches, and lung capacity reaching as high as 6,000 cubic centimetres ! Yet the staple food of these meu is rice, with a little fish ; but withal, they can hold their own against the picked men of any of the fjesh eating peoples, both for strength and en durance, The writer has frequently seen the coolies handling cargo on the bund in Yokohama working ceaselessly from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m., and at midday has seen them produce their simple meal of a few ounces of rice and fish, packed in a tiny piece of matting, eat it with the utmost gusto, and then resume their labors, like giants, re freshed. Meat is certainly not indispensible to produce and maintain brawn and muscle, a...

VARIETIES. FRIENDLY SOCIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 4 December 1901

VARIETIES. FRIENDLY SOCIETIES. The Government has got its Friendly So cieties' 'Bill tbrongh the Assemby at last, bat in suob a " questionable shape " (says the Evening News) that unless the measare is altered and made intelligible by tho Leg islative Council, it bad better not be passed at all, for it will leave tbem in a worse pre dicament than ever. An earnest effort was made last night to have the bill recommit ted, in order to strike out the glaring anom aly in the second clause, dealing with the conditions under which societies may be again registered after the next five years. This clause provides that every society may be registered, and may retain its registration for five years, and no longer ; but that it may be re registered at the eud of that per iod if its financial condition, so far as the old members' contributions are concerned, nas improved. That is to say, no matter how prosperous the society may become through an increase of new members,it cannot be again registe...

Alleged Extensive Theft OF HORSES AND CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 4 December 1901

Alleged Extensive Tlieft 01? HOBSES AND GATTLE. Botfral is at present experiencing quite tin excitable time, in fact quite a sensation has beon caused in our midst through an alleged extensive theft of horses and cattle by Mr. Harry Scliofield, manager of Ret ford Park estate, from bis employer, Mi". S. Horderu. The circumstances relating ,,to the arrest are rather peculiar, and things in general appear slightly mixed, although the mystery is rapidly being unravelled, and by Friday week (oourt day) the evidence forth coming should be of a rather eye-opening character. Schofield was arrested at the 3 a.m. mail train on Sunday morning by Sen.-Const. Gallagher, and later on the same day was brought before Mr. Gavin George, J.P. at tho Bowral police court an a charge of stealing one colt value 80 gain eas, the property of Ham ilordern, un the application of Senior-Const. Gallagher the accused was remanded until Faiday week, bail being allowed—self in £50 and one surety in ±'80. Later on...

The Caretaker and Christmas Day. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 7 December 1901

The Caretaker and Christmas Day Sir,—Hear, hear, " Eoving Tom !" The Sellout of A.rtn should certainly not be let for Christmas Day unci Good Friday: The present sys'tem miy bo " stupid " in Mr. Maddern's opinion, but there are very good reasons for hesitating before making suiih a sweeping change. Oho would hardly have ox ppcted a clergyman to argno that " l3eoause othera do it, therefore ic must be right." This is a prin- , oiple that I dare to.affirm he must have denounced many times from his pulpit. " Because others do it " i« no argument at all in questions df right. We want no sacred and classical concerts on (Jool Fri days, and there is no reason to suppose from' past experienoes that tho churches are not sufficiently large to hold all the people likely to go to purely .devotional sorrices on Clvi tmas Day. Christmas is a holiday all the Christian world over; As an old subscriber to the School of Arte, I beg to enter my protest againsl this proposal, and emphat'cally slate th...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. Using School of Arts on Christmas Day. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 7 December 1901

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. Using School of Arts 6a Christmas Day. Dear Sir,—" Roving Xom," has not representee! my case fairly in regard to using the Sohool of Arts on Christmas day for a religious service. Lot me ant him right. The real question is that whi r■< tha School of Arts provides bettor accommodation than it ohuruh can command, is it not a hardship that it enntot ha obtained foe praisa aill worship ? Tha building exists to supply conveniences for tiioae who require it for proper purposes, and Dfirmission might tery readily bo given to any local dhurcii for the purposes mime 1. I am as anxious as anyone to preserve the sanctity whiidi invrst Christmas Day and Good Friday, and I would discourage peripat etic pleasure oafcerers from giving their etitortnin ments under the guise of sacred concerts: Reput • able religious bodies in the town should, however, enioy the conveniences which the School of Arts ia enppoaod to provide; -l ain, yours faithfully, M.
