THE MODERN GIRL'S "WALK." A' PHILOSOPHER'S REFLECTIONS. What iSi.tho matter with the girls? Why do they.-walk thus? , For some time I had been conscious, in a dim dreamy sort of way, that into the general scheme of things something new and strange hat! entered. What this was I could no^ satisfactorily deter mine; it, did not 'present itself to my consciousness with sufficient clearness to be definitely identified. This, was be cause I had never been greatly . inte rested in the "softer" sex. But one day illumination came to me. It happened in Atarlcet street, Manches ter. ■ " In front of me walked a young girl, aged, I should say, about twenty. I j could not help noticing that she was glo i rlously beautiful..... She had a figure that a La Milo might have hankered after; a face that rio real poet could have seen without wanting toT write a sonnet or two about it. She turned round to look at me ; I bought a new stock of paper. But her walk! Ah, her walk! It was something very wonderf...

Mr Marston was born nearly | eighty-three years ago, and is "himself | the hero of his story." Concerning to- ! •bacco Mr Marston says:— | "I cannot find it. in my heart to abuse i tobacco—for I have been a moderate ' smoker for sixty years—and even now, 1 at my advanced age,. I still thoroughly : enjoy a cigar now and then; and yet I ' am far from being convinced that the j usejaf tobacco is not more of j The conclusion Mr Marston arrives at j is that "excessive and vindiscriminate j tobacco-smoking does not lead to the j prolongation of life into old age.

SEWING AT SCHOOLS. CHILDREN'S EYESIGHT. The question o£ baa eyesight among I school children has of late years received I. much attention, 'but, riot perhaps . suffi cient to ensure that the rising generation will receive the immense benefits that modern knowledge ought to endow them with. In Dr. H. G.' Critchley's useful little book on "Hygiene in School^ a long chapter is devoted to this matter. - It is noteworthy that he condemns sewing at school as harmful for little children. "Some of what are known as school conditions are anything but normal, and it is indisputable that;at' their door, must be laid the blame for the serious condi tion (of the-eyesight) which results, or which, having' otherwise resulted, be comes exaggerated. ''■In many cases . the position of the child. at the desk or work can only be described as thoroughly bad, but as often as not this is due to incorrect size of,,desks or bad light, either as to its direction or quality. The time spent upon writing and se...

Mr Roosevelt, he said, showed the ig norance of ail. Easterners in his message to Congress regarding the Japanese. They were a race that could never be as similated. They could - never become American citizens, for they had no de sire to do so, and only came to California to acquire a competency which would enable them to live in affluence iiv their own country.

Death of Mr. D. Chesher, Junr. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 27 May 1910
Death of Mr. D. Chesher, Junr. Mingled feelings of regret and sur- prise were expressed on every hand on Monday last, when it was an- nounced that the death of Mr. Donald Chesher, jun., of Eugowra, had taken place in the Forbes Hospital at noon that day from typhoid fever. Though it is some three weeks since Mr. Chesher first contracted the dread disease, the news of his illness was not generally known, which fact made the announcement of his demise all the more a shock to his friends. The deceased, who was only 36 years of age, entered the Eugowra Post Office as a boy, eventually winning his way upwards till he was promoted to the metropolis. About two years ago, however, and upon the death of his father (Mr. Donald Chester, sen.), he resigned from the service and took up business in Eugowra, where he also &nbsp; carried on the administration of his late father's estate. Throughout the &nbsp; whole district he has earned the highest respect and esteem, and by his de...
