When on my last tour I 'was giveu to understand that there was a strong Railway League in force in Cano windra, and upon enquiring from some of itsm'mbars I was assured that tho Lea gue had a definite promise of a railway in tlio near future : you may therefore iudtro of mv surprise on Saturday last wlien I was informed that the survey -was yet incomplete, which loads any person in my line to think the Railway League is losing its energy, which is much to be deplored.

THE HINDU EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 8 August 1902
THE HINDU EDITOR, In amusing candor and ingenuity of excuses the western editor might learn something from his Hindu brother, who, when anything goes wrong with the paper for which he is responsible, is as fertile in excuses as a Chinaman, says an English writer. When the first copy of a new Hindu newspaper made its appearance recently its subscribers were amazed to see that nearly half of it consisted of empty columns The following editorial note, how ever, explained ohis vagary: ' We re?rrt that this, our maiden number, should lack completeness due to a miscalcula tion. We thought we hud sufficient material, and consequently did not trouble to collect more. We can assure our in dulgent readers that this will jot occur again and we trust the quality of the contents will make up for their lack of quantity.' Another Hindu editor found it neces sary to suspend the publication of his paper for a fortnight without any warn ing. When the paper again made its ap pearance it contained this...

THE JAPANESE FIREMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 8 August 1902
THE JAPANESE FIREMAN. The Japs have long been famous for their supplenesB and agility, and hence their young men quickly learn to run up aud down fire ladders with the nimble nees of monkeys. These firemen wear a woollen uniform, similar to that worn by Japanese BoldierB, and, as regards rank, they are almost, if not altogether, on a level with the soldiers. There are regu larly and carefully drilled companies of them, not only in Tokio, but also in smaller cities, such as Sapporo, Otaru, and Toyawo. Doctor Matsui, (Imperial Superintendent of all firemen in Japan, came to Europe recently, for the purpose of extmining methods in vogue there for extinguishing fires, and it is believed that he will intro - duce Eome reforms after his return to Japan. Foreigners who have seen fire men at work in that country sincerely hope that . he will not introduce any re forms which will interfere with the men's wonderful agility as shown in their exercises.

The winner cf one of the slave races caused a hearty laugh by for getting that he was wearing a wig instead of a cap, and raising it with hie hands in response to the cheers of the spectators.

The interview was interrupted here by the entrance of Mr. Onslow, Gerard's uncle; so that he remained, for that day at least, in ignorance of the name and circumstances of the obiect of Harold Frayne's devotion. ?

Science PREMATUBE..GREYNKSS. J MqIKANY [persons are troubled^ with sRsIr premature greyess cf the hair, yjfc and in some cases this apparently trivial affection becomes fcrj them a fairly serious matter. I have heard of men by no means old ia any sense of the term losing their' situations because of the greyness of their hair, such cases re presenting hardships of the most direct description. Greyness of the hair comisg on early in life very frequently depends on illness, but this condition is also known to follow periods of great wo: ry or mental excitement. There are many cases recorded in which the hair has bean seen to change to greyness or whiteness in a very short period of time, and more than one well-known case has been re ported, in which the change has actually been seen to occur before the eyeB of the spectators. In one such instance, a Sepoy, on being led ont to execution in India, was observed to exhibit a gradual change of hair from the black tint to a greyish hue. The...

The decanter and a large tnmbler were placed in front of him, and he began to pour out a drink. When the tumbler was half full he stopped and looked at it as it estimating inn quantity as compared with the size of his thirst. The result appeared to be unsatisfactory. He re sumed , pouring and slowly filled the glass j to within half an inch of the top. The barman hastily took off his coat and vest, removed his collar and necktie, and then hesitated. - ? No,' he finally said, putting on the gar ments again. ' I'd like first rate to go in swimming with yon, but if a too blamed .old.'
