WILLIAM BEACH A BULLOCK DRIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 18 April 1885

WILLIAM. BEACH A BULLOCK- DRIVER. William Beach, the champion sculler of the world, ■was at one time a resident of Condoblin. When he rowed his last groat race with Hanlan on Saturday, a couple of gentlemen went down from Forbes to witness the event. On Monday they were in Deeble's Hotel in Sydney, and meeting an acquaintance up stairs in one of the rooms, Beach was pointed out to them as he was sitting in a corner quietly reading in a newspaper an account of the race. Beach was in vited to join the trio in a drink, and on being told that two of them had come all the way from Forbes to see him pull, he brightened up as he held out his hand to greet them, and said: "Forbes, Forbes, Why bless my heart, I drove a bullock team to Forbes twelve years ago with a loading of sugar for Thomas' stores, and then I went down to Condoblin and put up a choke and log fence for George Lee at his sta tion there." Beach afterwards told the party that for a time he followed his business as a blacksmit...

A TRAGIC STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 18 April 1885

A TRAGIC STORY. Many are the stories told by the collier-lads of losses and rescues, of escapes in the mine, and dis appearances never accounted for. A mine is flooded or given up as of " no accountthe shaft is boarded over, and a notice put up to warn that the spot is dangerous. In a few years the notice becomes illegible, another generation succeeds, the boards become grass-worn, strong to all appearance, but really rotten; then some unfortunate wight on a dark night loses his way or takes a short cut, the treacherous trap swallows him up, and it may not be for many years—until the story of his disappearance has become a tradition— that the skeleton of the buried alive is found. A harrowing story of an escape was recently told. A collier Jad, going across a heath, returning from his " turn " one evening, suddenly slipped into a hole, but by some means managed to grasp the edge, and so held on by his fingers to this treacherous but only safeguard, ' The evening passed into the dusk...

MR. G. A. SALA ON "POSSIBLE WAR." [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 18 April 1885

MR. G. A. SALA ON " POSSIBLE WAR." Mb. George Augustus Sala, in his lecture delivered at the Golden Age Hall, Maryborough, on Friday night (writes the correspondent of the Argup), to a crowded house, spoke as follows in reference to the impending war with Eussia:—In 1876 war with Russia was imminent, as imminent as it is now and my employers said, " Go to Russia at once, and see what they are up to." So I went to St. Petersburg, from thence to Warsaw and Moscow, and from the latter place' towards Odessa, on the Black Sea. When. I got close to Kief, however, I found that the railway was broken away and un workable, through a great thunderstorm which had recently occurred, and I had to travel in a sledge close on 200 miles to Kichineff. Here I saw the Russian army in course of mobilisation, making ready for the invasion of Turkey ; and eventually I left there, passed through Odessa to Constantinople, where the International Peace Conference was then sitting, at which Lord Salisbury re...

Cjw §atoral Jfae |)itss Do as adversaries do irilaio, Strive mightily, but eat and drink as friends. Saturday, April 18,1885. TOPICS OF THE WEEK. The big torpedo in Sydney harbour went off just forty-eight hours too late. Mr. Dalley and the fifty thousand people at Watson's Bay had all gone home. On Wednesday the explosion took place. A ship's spar about fifteen inches thick and thirty feet long was moored over the torpedo. With a great re port the explosion took place, throwing up the water to a height of 400 feet. From that height the water fell into the harbour with a great noise. It is the same height that the Fifczroy Falls are in depth. Spec tators noticed two black things in the air after the water fell. They mounted higher and higher until they got up a thousand feet, when they biegan to descend. One fell in the harbour 800 feet from the scene of the explosion. The other fell somewhere in the bush. Should a torpedo like that ex plode under an ironclad, so much the worse for ...

THOMAS GARLYLE AND THE CLERK. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 18 April 1885

THOMAS GARLYLE AND THE CLEM. It is well known that Thomas Carlyle hated the City. One day business induced him to enter its precincts. Wishing to be informed as to a certain locality of the whereabouts of which he had no notion, he stopped a young man in the neighbourhood of the Bank and asked of him the direction. The young man, recognising his iuterlocuter, at once volunteered to accompany him to the required spot. On the way Carlyle opened a conversation with the young man and elicited from him the fact that he was a clerk in a City house at a weekly salary. Arriving at their journey's end, Carlyle turned to his guide with a " Now, young man, you may go." " Thank you," said the clerk, by way of a gentle reminder. " Thank you for what ?" asked the sage. " Young man," said he, with emphasis, "honesty is the pivot on which the actions of man should hang. You have stolen your employer's time, and now you come and ask me to thank you for hav ing done so. The receiver is worse than tha...

A BRIDAL PRESENT. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 18 April 1885

A BRIDAL PRESENT. Archbishop Cranmer had a niece whom he married to a gentleman in every way her equal, and the ceremony was solemnised with much pomp and splendour, the rest of the day being passed in amusements and the'receiving of presents, of which the arch bishop's was the most notable one, and which he concealed from view under his robes. This both the bride and her newly made husband were most impatient to see. The husband thought it must be some grant of lands or employment of honor, while the wife thought it must be some rich diamond necklace or other precious ornament; but the archbishop persisted in concealing his present till they had both promised him never to wear it at the same time; and then he pulled out—a fool's cap!

THE MITTAGONS DRAMATIC PERFORMANCE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BOWRAL FREE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 18 April 1885

THE MITTAGONS DRAMATIC PER FORMANCE. • \ r. ' TO THE EDITOR OF THB BOWBAL FRKE PltESS. Snt,—Poor " Moral!" I would fain let go unnoticed -this. silly outburst of passion; but the writer so dis tinguished himself by a production of puerile phrases and strange collocations in which everything that can hiss, sting, or venomously pollute, has taken sanctuary, that I feel bound to use ray hamble en deavours to keep him at least on the pedestal; for "if he mount the dias unchallenged he may grow ped antic and pedantry, combined with his cynical dis position, would certainly breed obloquy, which of all social: pestilences is by far tho most pernicious. There is one thing which he mentions in his illogi cal and feeble refutation—that is mythology. My remarks were made in an honest way. I do not pretend to be a critic, but if I was possessed of one half of the acrimony which drives that distempered pen of " Moral's," I could point out many a " faux pas." But they are amateurs, and, en passan...

TWO SUDDEN DEATHS AT A WEDDING. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 18 April 1885

TWO SUDDEN DEATHS AT A WEDDING. On Saturday night, February 14th, says tho Weekly Despatch a large party of guests assembled at the residence of a farmer liv ing near (Jlonmel to celebrate the marriage of his daughter. Soon after dinner com menced a young man fell from his chair, and was taken up a corpse. The body was immediately removed, and shortly after wards the party returned to the room, when another young farmer, unmarried, gave a violent scream and immediately died. The examination of the bodies has shown that the men were suffocated by pieces of meat sticking in their throats. The wedding al together was a most unfortunate affair.

The Most Trivial affections with which we are troubled are what are commonly called colds, and yet, trifling as they are from a superficial standpoint, they are but conductors of many dire diseases. If they do not end in pneumonia or some pulmonary complaint, they fall on the kidneys, and here is just the point at which Wolfe's Schnapps comes to our aid, and by its searching, permeating, and per vasive action on these organs, restores them to their normal condition.

A GOOD YOUNG MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 18 April 1885

A GOOD YOUNG MAS. In the waiting-room of a small railroad sta tion, conspicuously displayed was the pla card—" Beware of Pickpockets." A stout, well-dressed old gentleman, in every line whose face honesty and credulity were depicted, read the warning, and turn ing to a good-looking young man who hap to be standing near by, remarked— " How much rascality there is in the world ! It is sad to think that it is neces sary to put up such notices: but I suppose if such notices were not put up in public places hundreds of unexpecting people would be plundered by the light-fingered gentry." The young man in a semi-clerical garb, who was standing near the old gentleman responded with a sigh—"It is sad indeed to think that there are such wicked people who resist all the missionary efforts that are made to reform them. It is sad, very sad." Just at this moment the signal was given to board the train, which was about to leave. The elegantly dressed old gentleman and the devout youth seized their...
