1910—A YEAR OF RECORDS The State's Prosperity. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 18 March 1911
1910--A YEAR OF RECORDS The State's Prosperity. THE State is just now enjoying a period of great prosperity. If, as Sir John Sinclair, one of the Scottish Agricul tural Commissioners, recently said, on boing interviewed on hiB return home, "Australia is 0110 of the saddest coun tries," it is also in regard to its pro duction and trade, calculated per head of its population, 0110 of the richest lands in tlio world. Sir John Sinclair, doubtless, knows this, but his generali zation referred only to its industrial condition; and particularly to the rela tions between employer and omployeo. New South Wales, the oldest State in tlio union, lias enjoyed many years of j plenty, in fact, its wholo history is a story of steady, solid achievement and increasing wealth. Hut last year's re cord, speaking broadly, eclipsed those of any other. Jn 1910 the population jumped from 1,045,444 to 1,090,31(5, a I remarkable increase of 44,872, or 2"73 per thousand. Tlio natural increase is tlio ? highest...

CHEW'S CASUALTY CHAPTER. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 18 March 1911
CHEW'S CASUALTY CHAPTER, The Young "Chronicle" prints the acci dent 'record of Mr. Harry Chew, a local resident, ilero.it is: .Falls from horses, 23; thrown' out of buggies or traps, 8; arm broken, once'; wrist broken, once; leg broken, once, necessitating amputa tion ; part of his left hand shot away through pun accident; and last, but not least, a motor-car accident, in which the scalp of his head was severely injured and his jaw broken in two places. It seems pretty good prophecy to say Harry Chew .will yet-be completely chewed up. "Sho married him for his money, then found out he hadn't any." "1 see. She took his name in vain."

THE SILLY LONDONER. A good deal moro attention is being given to tlie production of passion fruit, and a lot of planting lias boeu noticoablo in the district served- by tbo railway from tho Hawkesbury northwards. If a. Brit ish demand could bo secured for this luscious fruit'a great impetus would bo given to the industry, but, -unfortunately, tho attempts so far to place ifc on tho London market have Jiot been very suc cessful.

THE LATE REV C. W. PHILIP. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 18 March 1911
THE LATE REV C. W. PHILIP. It is at all times an exceedingly sad duty to record the death of a member of our community and par- ticularly so when that member has taken a prominent and active part in building up our district and has en- deared himself to us by enduring ties of friendship. On Wednesday when it became generally known that the Rev. C. W. Philip, squire of Can- imbla, had passed away at 1 a.m. a feeling of intense regret was ex- perienced by those who had the pleasure of his acquaintance and deep sympathy with the bereaved relatives. The lamented gentleman was only ill about a week, his trouble in its early stages not being suf- ficiently pronounced to occasion his relatives much anxiety. As his con- dition on Saturday became somewhat serious, it was decided to remove him from Canimbla to Nurse Mathe- aon's private hospital, in order that he might be within easy reach of his medical attendant, Dr. McLaren. There being no improvement on Monday, Dr. McLaren called in Dr. F...
COOLEY—KEYS. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 18 March 1911
COOLEY—KEYS. On Wednesday last two very popular members of our community were united in the holy bonds of matrimony, when Bert, son of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Cooley, of our town, was married to Nellie, eldest daughter Mr. and Mrs. J. Keys, of Cross Keys, Covvra. The ceremony was performed at St. John's Church of England, Rev. A. J. Gardner officiating. Miss Lizzie Keys, sister of the bride, acted as bridesmaid, and Mr. P. Brien as best man. At the conclusion of the ceremony the wedding party and a large number of friends sat down to a sumptuous wedding breakfast at the residence of the bride's parents, when several toasts were proposed and duly honored. The happy young couple left by the afternoon train for Sydney en route to Melbourne, where the honey moon will be spent. In the evening the guests spent a most enjoyable time until a late hour. We join with Mr. and Mrs. Bert Ccoley's many friends in wishing them long life and happiness.
Family Notices [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 18 March 1911
In Memoriam. IN loving memory of out dear mother, SARAR THOMPSON, who passed peace- fully away on March 19, 1910. God saw when her footsteps faltered, When her poor heart grew weary and weak So He bade her rest for a season, As the pathway had grown too steep. Sadly each day we think of her still, And remember her dear loving face, Yet, in humble submission, we bow to the will Of Him who has crowned her with grace. Her sufferings were great, her pain severe, But she bore it with patience till God drew near, [well And then without bidding us a last fare- She peacefully went home to heaven to dwell. Inserted by her loving sons and daught- ers.
Weddings. MOORE—GAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 18 March 1911
Weddings. MOORE—GAIN.

CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 March 1911
CHAPTER II. I Mr. Joyce Redgrave was a . young t man of extravagant habits, but with , very little actual wealth to back them \ up. This disadvantage, however, he did not take Into due consideration, ! for he lived up to his full bent, always J Justifying his lavish expenditure chief- | ly, of course, on the credit system, by the assumption, well founded, it is true, that sooner or later he would in herit the Croxford millions. He kept up a pretentious establish ment at Hailbrook, a small village some two or three miles distant from Deepdean Hall, and was in the habit of making frequent visits to his uncle, in whom and whose affairs he most naturally evinced the deepest interest. Between six and seven o'clock on the evening of the day upon which Mr. Croxford disappeared, his nephew ar rived at Deepdean, and, as was his wont, entered the house without the conventional use of either knocker or bell. Going straight up to his uncle's private room, he, as already stated, rang the bell fo...
CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 March 1911
CHAPTER III. It was some time past midnight, and with the exception of Mr. Joyce Red grave, the inhabitants of Deepdean Hall had retired to rest an hour or so previous. In spite of his threat that MissDev ereux and her mother should not re main under the same roof, the two ladies had so far heard nothing that would be likely to cause them to chnngo their plans, and consequently were occupying rooms in a distant part of the Hall. Once Redgrave thought of sending an intimation to them in accordance with his threat, but he remembered Burrell's significant remark, that no Bervant hi the house would carry bo distasteful and inhospitable a mess age to his uncle's fiance and her mother, and, thinking better of it, did not attempt such an outrage. Since sending oft his telegram to Scotland Yard, he had remained alone in Mr. Croxford's private room, busily engaged in ransacking every drawer he could find, but from his impatient and angry mutterings, it was plainly evident that whatever he so...

Moro gratifying, how over, is the statoment that lias been mndo with authority that the whole drift of the King's mind is towards theso Dominions. Naturally, the ques tion would arise, in view of the groat breadth of the national horizon, to what extent will Australia share in the "drift of tlio King's mind"? 'But ob sorvant people would at onco bo roady with tho answer .that.

AUTHOR 01" "The Strange Case of Mr. Fenw'ck," " The Man with "tiie Withered Facc," " An Image in Wax," etc. CHAPTER I. Deepdean Hall, the Essex resident of Mr. Mostyn Croxford, was in a state of unusual excitement; some thing out of the common had occurred -its millionaire owner had suddenly disappeared, and was not to be found. The establishment at Deepdean was a large one, as became the mansion of a millionaire, and shortly after the disappearance of their master, the ser vants, male and female, were gather ed together in that portion of the Hall sacred to their presence, discussing the event. Calgb Burrell, Croxford's valet, was being closely questioned respecting his master's movements, but could give his fellow-servants very little informa tion. At three o'clock in the afternoon Croxford had summoned him to his dressing-roonj, and given certain or ders as regards his. clothe...
