GAMBLING IN METALS. —:— There is a -tremendous amovnt of 'gambling carried on in articles which the average person would thin'c a'jout the last things to interest gamblers.

A VISITOR'S IMPRESSIONS. We ;uc indebted to a visitor for the following :—■ "When 1 decided to visit To cumwal for a nerve rest, I did not think I would have much enter tainment, hut I had not apparent ly taken into account the notable elates of October 15 to 18. The first thing that struck my eye in the "Guardian" was a limerick— "to Toke we.will go" unite stirred iny romantic nature and 1 de termined to go mvsclf to this much talked of Meadow Pete. All that Hight I pictured the sccnc of gay icstivity,, 1 wondered where thev had found the meadow. Was it the site of the' new show ground that I had heard so much about? I dreamt of a grassy undulating slope, with rustic stalls and shady trees and luxurious grass, maidens dressed as milkmaids pinning button- . holes in my coat) and enchanting sirens—such a picturesque scene.

ANGLICAN MEADOW FETE. " The results, of Uie Anglican" Meadow Fete have come up to . expectations and despite the in clement weather 011 the opening day, the display was a most su cessful one. The stalls were in charge of the following ladies : Fancy stalls, Mesdames Casey, Chenery and Walsh. This stall was tastefully decorated and made very at tractive. As in all stalls it was cUfiictilt to keep things in order, owing to heavy gusts of north easterly winds which prevailed during the afternoon, and the decorations somewhat suffered not a little. The fancy siall was generally popular owing to its varied stock, a leading feature - was the Dolls' House. The dis play was indeed a creditable one. The sweets stall was in charge of Mrs. Smith and .Miss R. Iluggard. The decorations were festoons of pink roses and ever greens. Again this stall carried a fine lot of confectionery. Mrs. .Smith was again to the fore with a fine selection of choice home made sweets. The pot plant stall, in charge...

CHAPTER XII —A Compact.—• "Not—Rosamund—at all?" Hubert stood stock still in the middle of the white road, blank incredulity and amascment in his eyes. "Look here, Rambcrt," lie went on, a note of irritation in Irs voice, "if this is a joke, I cannot say I think it a particularly good one. Of course that is Rosa mund: She- '' "A joke—my good fellow.1' Humbert's laugh broke out again, harsh and uncompromising". "Is it a subjcct about which I should be likely to joke? Look at the lady herself. There is not much of a joke about her at this mo ment." Hubert's eyes followed the di rection of Humbert's, and as they fell upon the girl in the lane, lie started violently, a dark flush mounting to her forehead. Pre cisely at the moment of Stephen's speeeh Alison had become aware of the two men advancing to wards her, and the swift instinct of fear had at once warned her of the identity of Hubert's com panion. All her color died out of her face, a look of fear, the fear of a trapped creature l...

CTIATIiR XI. —"She is not Rosamund at all!"— "My dear oIwid. I'm awfully sorry, I feel as if I had brought you .here under false prctcnccs, but inv poor cousin is in bed With .acute neuralgia, and none of us have seen her to-day. I am afraid she won't be down at all this afternoon." The words were spoken by IIubcrL in tones of vexation, and the glance which lie cast at the tall dark man by his side, was of deprecation, mingled with annoy ance. "Bad luck," came the reply. "I looked forward to seeing little Rosamund again. You must for give me for calling her by her Christian name, Metcalfe—but she was scarcely more than a child when I knew her, a dear little golden-haired fill like a fairy." Hubert stared into his friend's dark face, a puzzled expression up.in his own. "Then-she has aged and.alter ed a good deal since you saw her," lie answered slowly; she must" have grown quite out of your recollection, old man.

GROWING DRUNKENNESS IN N.S.W. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Riverina Echo — 24 October 1913
CROWING DRUNKENNESS IN N.S.W. According to the official Police Records, in 1903 there were 155 ■ convictions for drunkenness for. every 10,000 people in the State. In 'i 912, the number increased to 205 convictions for each ten thousand. In New Zealand there were 112 : convictions for every 10,000. people in the whole Dominion last year.. In the twelve No-license areas there were only 23 convic tions per. ten thousand people. The above figures are taken from the police records and can not be disputed. Do they prove the value of No-license as a pre ventative of drunkenness? In No-license Masterton there were — .. 36 convictions under No-license ;in 1912, as against 279 convic tions 1 under license in 1909. Does not this prove No-license rc-'V duces drunkenness? Drunkenness has been almost entirely .wiped out of the No- . license areas of New Zealand. Ir is rapidly increasing in New South Wales. It causes poverty, suffering, crime. Stop the sale of liquor, and drunkenness will and suf...

He will tell everyone the; truth—and I shall be turned out of the only home I have ever known,, sent away-from: the only people 1 ever loved';" She dropp ed her head upon her folded arms, and great sobs, shook her slight frame ; sobs which so dis turbed the small watchers by her side, that in another moment two small noses were thrust into her hands, . two rough brown heads touched her caressingly, and whining cries of sympathy broke fr...

The visit of the American Fleet to our shores served as it was -intended to, as a great example and great re proach to all thinking citizens.

WOMEN'S SPHERE. WHY SOME GIRLS ARE GENERALLY DISLIKED. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Riverina Echo — 24 October 1913
WOMEN'S SPHERE. (By "Mavis.") A . W1IY SOME GIRLS ARE GEN ERALLY DISLIKED. While it frequently happens that one girl' has a host of ad mirers, it happens nearly as often that another girl is cordially disliked by a number of men. Qualities which make for male appreciation have often . been chronicled, but the reasons why some girls are disl'k_d by men arc not recorded so frequently (says one of ex perience). iMen have a strong dislike, for instance, for the "clcvcr" girl—-not the well-edu cated girl, but the maid who makes spiteful remarks because she thinks they are clever and who criticises and comments cruelly on eve'rythinc because she imagines that sarcasm, is an in dication ot cleverness. Cutting remarks about other people- will amuse a man for a short time, but they soon.become wearisome. Equally unpopular is the superior eirl who mnltpt it vprv cIphi- I she considers it a favor to eon descend to talk to anv mere man. There is an off-hand haughtiness in her tones which is suf...
