Dr. and Mrs. Fisher. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 3 August 1901

E2r. and Mrs. Fisher. The many-friends of Dr. and Mrs; Fisher will be pleased to hear of their safe arriv al in England after a lengthened voyage of ten weeks. • The _fijrst part of the voy age to South Africa was against head winds and heavy seas. One severe launch of the vessel when off Cape Town threw the doctor against the sides of his bunk, bruising his rib's. There were two or three slight stoppages in mid ocean to rectify boiler defects. Durban, the' sea port of Natal, is described as a pretty little semi-ttropical town, with beautiful surroundings. Cape Town is the bustl-, ing!ca:pital of:South Africa, with-; its., bay filled with vessels and steamers, and large numbers, of troops going and, coming daily; ■. The presence of plague caused all passengers'to- be prohibited passing be yond the wharves, but the doctor was for tunate' enough to get a permit, and thoroughly enjoyed a sight of the city. Wlien'lying off, a heavy gale of wind was encountered, during which one steamer ...

A Correction. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 3 August 1901

A Correction Sir,—I„n your obituary notice of'Syduey J. White in last Wednesday's issue of your paper, there are a. couple of points about ' which you were evidently misinv formed, and which I desire on the part of i our school, club to have set right. First* the lad did not belong to the school club, he being too young to join it. Second, he was not playing in the football match at all on the day of his fatal accident. He and.others about his own age, 10 years, were playing by themselves (chasing I think), in another part of the ground, which was not the Glebe but the Centen nial Park. . We all feel very sorry about the death of our school-mate'who was general favor ite, and we should have felt a terrible load of responsibility on 'our shoulders had'it occurred through us as a, club* and we would doubtless have been subjected to-much censure,for:carelessness, rough ness) etc.,; but as he neither was a mem ber; of the club nor playing with'' us on the j occasion, we feel thankful, w...

The Federal Postal Bill and Tattersall's [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 3 August 1901

The Federal Postal Bill and 1 • -.-.v. ■ Tatters all's Dear Sir,—The gamblers in the various states are up in arms against the Postal Bill now before the 'Federal Parliament, because it proposes ^to ^stpp Rambling through the niediuni^eji^he" -'post office. The promoters of cdn^^?tioiis|kre' mak iiig.a great outcry BeS^^e^their craft is in danger. They ace not only using the right of petition, but they are also using ' misrepresentation to induce people to sign the petition against the Bill by say ing that it will give the. PostmastelrrGen eral the power to open private letters. Such a glaringly untrue statement may delude some liberty-loving people into signing Tattersall's petition against the Bill. -There will be no interference with any private correspondence.;, but letters addressed to Tattersall's and other sweep tpromoters will be.stopped. With a view of stopping' gambling from, .being carriisd" on through the post office, all the . States, excepting Tasmania, have already le...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. The Hospital Ball and XJ.F.S Demonstration. Sib,—I notice in llio locul PrcfB a report of r meeting held in tho town hall on Wednesday last, convened by n Vice-president of our Hospital Committee. I am very nmch surprised that ono who is supposed to.havo tho welfare of the hospital nt heart should come forward to run a hospital ball, when he must have seen in tho papor a month ago that the Com mittee of tho Friendly Societies had arranged to hold a ball after their sports were over. Mr. Editor, X take this as a direct slap in the face to tho Friendly Societies' Committee, and not altogether from the Committee of the Hospital, as I have an opinion that tho Committee are not in it. Tho action of the ball Committee, I understand, (las put a dampor on tho Friendly Societies' Committee, which meets on Monday next.

A Band of Heroes. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 3 August 1901

A Band of Heroes. BV A. BANKER. Amongst all the deeds of heroism and self command of which history leavps any record, the magniGcent bravery and discipline of a body of British troops, about five hundred strong, who, on the sinking transport Birk enhead, were formed into line, and, standiug at attention, calmly awaited almost certain death, stands foremost as an instance of valour and self-coutrol which will, for all time, be told in honour of those gallant I men. j The vessel had almost reached her destin ation, Cape Town, and was well within sight of land, when suddenly she struck a sunken rock with a violence that caused her to tremble from stem to stern as though some monster of the deep had smitten lier a crushing blow. Soon it was seen that a great rent had been torn in her side, through which vast volumes of water were pouriug iu, makingit evident that the ship was doomed to destruction, and that no human power could .saye her.""Now was the word of com mand given that the tro...
