The Referenda MR. WADDELL. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 18 March 1911

,1-"'" J." - ? The Referenda MR. WADDELL. On Wednesday evening last Mr' Waddell addressed a meeting from the balcony of the Imperial Hotel. The Mayor (Dr. Foley) presided, and the largo gathering of people who assembled to hear the views of our State member on this important question wero amply rewarded by hearing the sound arguments ad duced acainst the Referenda pro posals.

Fitzpatricb also spoke on the subject, and his ad dress was also particularly interest 1PgM, Waddell who received a very .warm ovation when rising to speak said the peoplo would be asked two questions.

MR. FITZPATRICK. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 18 March 1911

MR. FITZPATRICK. Mr. Fitzpatrick referred at some length to the split which had occurred in the ranks of the Labour Party ?with reference to these proposals. The fact that men like Messrs. McGowen, Holman, Neilsen, and others of our State Ministry were opposed to the proposals which had emanated from Mr. Hughes, who at "present was the grand panjandrum of the Commonwealth, was signifi cant, and the followers of the party all through the Continent should take some note of it. It was all very well for Mr. Hughes, cute and cunning little lawyer that lie was, to ask further Federal Parliament in creased powers, but was there any justification for the demand; and had the Government up ,to date proven that they were worthy of a fresh burst of confidence ou the part of the people. How had they managed, or, rather, mismanaged the' postal department, handed over to tliem ten year? ago as a going concern ? The "postal service was in a state of chaos, the employees were displaying a feeling of...

Gray's Billiards. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 18 March 1911

Gray's Billiards. The three-fold victory of Gray, the 18 year-old Australian, over Diggle, the -Eng lish master, establishes his position beyond doubt. As he plays billiards, he has no equal. Apropos of his first win from Diggle, the "Daily Telegraph" "Expert" ripuTts tnat the sessions held in Notting ham were attended by from 1500 to 2000 persons a day, or twice as many as Kob crts ever drew together in a provincial town when at the top of his fame. "The prolific scoring of George Gray, his tender years, striking personality, and typified earnestness have, unmistakably, caught the public fancy, apart from his rctoid-breaking achievements. Some," pro coeds "Expert," "will contend thitt the Australian youth is not a naturally gifted, but a 'made' player, i.e., one trained to his high standard of skill by incessant practice and fine precept.

TO STOP BABY FARMING. How Glasgow Stamped Out the Evil. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 18 March 1911

TO STOP QABY FARMING. How Glasgow Stamped Out the Evil. The drastic steps taken in Glasgow to stop baby farming were described at a conference of representatives of ' charity organisation- societies in London last month. Having referred -to prosecutions of guardians of children for baby-farming of fonces, Mr. Motion said the publication of the full details of the cases where heavy sentences were imposed, the close grip their visitors kept of the cases re ported, aud their energy in searching out those not notified went a long way. to wards reducing the causes of-the evil. The result had been that for nearly a year past the Glasgow Parish Council had Iwid no case of baby farming in its worst form -that of combining cruelly and neglect with the reception of infants as a means of acquiring monetary gain-and it wa3 practically now extinct. An arrangement made between the parish council and the newspapers relating to adoption advertisements was very ef fective. Through that arrangement a...

A San Francisco Experience. RUDYARD KIPLING AND THE BUNCO-STEERER. ? There appeared before me an af fable stranger of prepossessing ap pearance, with a blue and an Inno cent eye. Addressing me by name ho claimed to have mot me in New York at the Windsor, and to this claim I gave a qualified assent. I did not remember the fact ; but since he was so certain of it, why, theti-I waited developments. "And what did you think of Indi ana when you came through ?" was the next question. It revealed the mystery of previous acquaintance, and one or two other things. With reprehensible careless ness, my friend of the light-blue eye had looiced up the name of his vic tim in the liotel' register, and read "India" for Indiana. ? He could not imagine an Englishman coming through the States from West , to East instead of by the regularly or dained route. Aly fear was that in. his delight at finding me so respon sive he would make remarks about New York and the Windsor"" which I could not understand....

HOMELY FARE. THE PLUM SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 18 March 1911

HOMELY . FARE. THE PLUM SEASON. Unlike some fruits, the plum is ex tremely plentiful and good this year. The plum is improved to most tastes by cooking, and it is made more digestible, except the tough skin, which should not be eaten, even when the plums are of a choice variety, well ripened on the tree. There is no fruit so liable to irritate the digestive' organs if eaten unripe; over-ripe, or in : large quantities. Only the large' sweeter kinds are fit to serve,uncooked,: and these should be indulged in more as a relish than as an important part: of the meal. No . fruit makes a more' enjoyable sweet pickle or a richer pre-, serve than- the plum. The-sorts gene rally used are the greengages and the large blue plums, and for richness of. flavor nothing exceeds the old-, fashioned damsons. =. Plum Marmalade:-To make good marmalade use the yellow or greengage plums. Cut them in halves and remove the stones. ? Then weigh and- allow-half, their weight in sugar. Put the Cruit^in-; to th...

WINDOW DRAPERIES. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 18 March 1911

WINDOW DKAPEKXES. Atouch of artistic individuality may be displayed in materials for window hanging that are inexpensive, as one woman whose income is limited and who likes pretty surroundings, has proved by selecting attractive hanging from cross barred muslin such as is used for stiffening dress materials. When purchased, the material, which was white and barred off with a fairly heavy cord in squares of about half an inch, was stiff. This she put immediately into a tub and rinsed, dried and rinsed again to remove all starch. Then, while the fabric was damp, she pressed it with a heavy iron and when done the material resembled one of the coarse lace nets so much in vogue.; ior windows. This net, as every one knows, costs more than five times the sum paid for muslin. The curtains hung to the sill, from the top of the frame, and were finished with deep hems, put in by hand.' Ball fringe .makes them more dressy.. The material,-, treated in that way,.- had smartness, and will- wear in...
