CULT OF THE ANARCHIST HOTBED OF REVOLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 March 1911

CULT OF THE ANARCHIST I .' I HOTBED OF REVOLUTION. Tire rccent murder of thr. e city policemen by foreign ruffians h.is for cibly directed public attention to tin fact that, in spite of England's habi till immunity from anarchist outrage, the cult of anarchy fio.rihes more or less undisturbed in London. Apparently the perpetrators of the Houndtditch cr:m: were no ordinary burg'ars, but rather desperadoes of the red revolutionary type, who, being in need of funds, re garded the sacking of a Jeweller's shop as the most promising method whereby their coffers might be refilled. Fiction has mude the general reader familiar with what he fondly imagines to be the type of the militant terrorist, a fe: oeious-loo'dng creature with long, matted hair, bloodshot eyes, and gene rally minus a coat. As a matter of fact (fays "M.A.P."), ..the leadeis of the extreme revolutionary movement, the world over, are men who would be the last to be suspected of advocating the tenets of brute force, and who ...

DR. LUCAS' PAWPAW OINTMENT. Its Phenomenal Activity. At Work Day and Night. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 March 1911

DR. LUCAS' PAWPAW OINTMENT. Its Phenomenal Activity. At Work Day and Night. "Wliy," it is sometimes asked, "does Dr. Lucas' Pawpaw Ointment do in a day what other ointments may take a week to perform?''' The reason is not deeply hid. This Ointment is not a passive agent, but a highly active one. It does not merely kill the germ and then lio idle on tlio wound, a more greaso pad, with no further duty to perform, as is the caso witli ordinary antiseptic ointments. But, on tho con trary, it is continually exorcising its curative powers. Dr. Lucas' Ointment is an advanco on all others. Its "stimulating"-wo had almost said electric-action on old, callous, ob sfcinato sores is something to bo seen and remembered. The remarkable fer ments which go to make up this pre paration are an absolute foe to all unhealthy fleshy tissue. They feed on it as their natural food, at the same time stimulating tho growth of healthy flesh. A splendid example of an ob stinate old soio giving away immediate l...

POLICE AT BAY. FAITHFUL BULLDOG. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 March 1911

POLICE AT BAY. FAITHFUL BULLDOG. For some hours on Tuesday (says "Lloyd's Weekly News" on January 15) a faithful bulldog, keeping watch and ward over the body of her dead master,' held at bay nine City policemen who wished to remove the dead man. Two years ago there came to live at the European' Restaurant in Bartho lomew's-close a man named Hyatt, who was employed in a- wholesale drapery warehouse in Wood street. Hyatt, who was looked upon as something of an eccentric, made few friends, but he had one inseparable companion, a bulldog named Nellie. On Tuesday morning a waitress .took up Hyatt's breakfast, knocked at the door, and left the tray on the landing. It was not till two o'clock that the same waitress, coming upstairs with the lodger's dinner, found that the breakfast tray bad not been touched. A knock at the doqr5was only answered by growls from the idog. More vigor ous knocking by " tii'e coffeehouse pro prietor aroused the dog to fury, but there was no other reply. The do...

AT THE "KING'S HEAD." [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 March 1911

AT THE "KING'S HEAD." The oatlor of tho King's Head Inn cumu across tho courtyard with a buc ket of water ill his left hand, and a horsecloth under his right arm. He carried his burden awkwardly, because of the missing hand which should have held it, and ho limped so unevenly acioss tho cobbled yard that the splashes from his bucket made a zig zag trail behind hini. Jem, tho stable boy, whistling'and swinging heels 011 the edge of tho trough, told himself, not for the first time, that 'twas folly of "ood Master Mole, landlord of tho King's Head, >to keep a man so dis abled in tho . service, and that a brisk lad would bo better in his place. The ostler was much of tho same opinion, and would eyo tho red-headed young ster, now anil llien, with secret bitter ness, as one destined soon to oust him from liis last poor sholter; thon would laugh grimly enough at tho thought that he, Mjr.

BRITAIN'S POSITION IN EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 March 1911

BRITAIN'S POSITION IN EUROPE. "Grave as may be our own Internal preoccupations," says the "Times," "It Is not at the moment when there is a talk of Germany making: fresh advances to us that we can afford to encourage the belief which, according- to our well informed Vienna correspondent, is gain ing ground abroad-namely, that since the death of King Edward and our Con stitutional crisis, Continental Powers can 'make their .calculations without immediate consideration of British pol-. icy, as England is.too much absorbed, in her own affairs to play an active part in Europe.' We do not believe that at prese.nt tiiere is any more rea son for suspecting British policy of in difference to the interests of our friend.s on the Continent;''.'than for suspecting tlieir policy of indifference to our interests.

CHAPTER IV. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 March 1911

CHAPTER IV. At last the bolt had fallen, and it struck Redgrave with a suddenness and power "which for the time being bereft him of that sense he should have called to his aid-the sense of speech. He was worse than dumb founded, for not only was his tongue silent, but his face white as with some great fear, and his limbs trem bling as with some withering blight. As he stood thus before that silent witness, cursing the folly which had led him to use the blotting-pad in this incriminating manner, there was but one thought before his mental vision, and that was how best he could re move the suspicions which the discov ery had created in the mind of the de tective. To do this successfully, lie told himself, would be a difficult mat ter, but to ensure the success of a certain scheme which rose up vividly before him at that moment, it must be done. Suddenly an idea seemed to occur to him, for with an effort he became calm, and speaking with his customary self-composure, said: "Mr. Willing...

THE DOCTOR'S CONVERSION [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 March 1911

THE DOCTOR'S CONVERSION By. C.B.M. I had taken only a slight interest In the crusade against vivisection; if I had thought about It at all, I believe it was with a sense of tolerant complacency, a feeling that the doctors were doing something to animals-I knew not what-which might possibly be of use , to me or. mine. On taking up my "Times" one morning my attention was attracted by an article on the subject, evidently written by a doctor, and, having read it with, interest, I was surprised, on coming to the signature, to find it was that of an old friend and schoolfellow of my own, whom, owing to divergent paths in life, I had lost sight of for many years. The result of reading his letter, .which was a very trenchant attack on vivisection,- as practised, was to fill me with a desire to see him again, and get him to enlighten me on that vexed question. To my note a messenger boy quickly brought a reply, in which the doctor rsaid he would be alone that night at -dinner, and hoped I wo...

Correspondence. OUR ROADS AND STREETS. To the Editor. Sib,-Just a few lines to attract 1 the attention of our Shire Councillors to a length of. about 100 yards of roadwork Loar the 3-mile pag, I opposite Mr. McElligott's cultivation I paddock, Morongla Greek road, which in my Opinion is one of the best pieces of _ road construction in the State. It gets neither dusty in dry -weather " nor muddy after rain, being ever under all climatic conditions aB smooth and level as a billiard table. There is a remarkable contrast be tween this length of road and the thoroughfare on either side of it under similar conditions iu respect to wear and tear, differing as much as day does from night in that respect. This must be due to the method of construction and material used, seeing that the roadway on either side of it resembles a field ploughed for a crop of wheat more than a highway in tended as a traffic avenue to our town. My object in writing this is to en deavonr to cause the Shire Council ...
