THE MYRTLEMORE TRAGEDY. By Ada Goldsby* ^VVnrrratt Expressly fob the BownAL FrtriE Pbessi) CHAPTER VIII.—CON'TINtiED. Long before ibhe train had arrived at Syd ney Harold has satisfied himself with the conviction that Mr. Mayne would cordially invite him to Myrtle more Park to spend a few Weeks there before his departure from the Colony. But the thought was far from Mr. Ma^ne who never imagined for one second that after patting on their arrival in Sydney they would ever hear of each other agaiii. At length the train dashed into the Red fern station. All was confusion aud bustle for several minutes, and then Mr. Mayne, Grace, and Harold found themselves on the platform opposite the carriage they had vocated ready to bid each other fare well. Harold held Grace's small haud in his longer than was necessary in saying good bye—at any rate longer than he held her father's. "I hope," he said, "I might have the pleasure of seeing you again before I re turn "to England. I assure you, Miss Ma...

Death of Mr. Kenneth McKevzie. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 22 April 1885

Death of Air. Kenneth McKevzie* We legrei to announce the death of Mr. Kenneth McKenzie, for several years a resident'of Eowral. His death was the result of a severe accident which happened to him a few weeks since whilst in the act of plunging into a waterhole to bathe, by which he had the misfortune to dislocate his knee-joint; and notwithstanding the skilful-medical treatment and careful nursing he received, he gradually sank under his injuries, and expired on the 13th instant at the Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney, to which institution he had been ordered by Dr. Jonea, his medical attend ant, as affording the greatest facilities for the treat ment of so serious a case. The deceased gentleman, who was oue of a numerous family, came to the colony when a boy many years ago with his father, the late Lieutenant-Colonel McKenzie, one of Wel lington's veteran Peninsular soldiers. On his father retiring from the army, Mr. McKenzie resided with him for a long period on his estate at Nerri...

BIBLICAL BLUNDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 22 April 1885

BIBLICAL BLUNDERS. Every year a certain proportion of the chil dren of the London board schools enter into a competitive examination in Scriptual knowledge for the " Peek Prizes," which consists of liandsomely-got-up Bibles and Testaments. They are " paper work" examinations, and the following are a few of many curious " hash" answers that have at various times been put in them. " Abraham was the father of Lot, and had tew wives, one was Ishmale and tother Hag gar, but he kept wun at home and he turned tother into the desert where she becomes a pillar of salt in the day time, and a pillar of fire by night." "Joseph wore a koat of many garments. He was chief butler to Faro and told his dreams.

Welcome to Rev. B. Kenny. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 22 April 1885

Welcome to Rev. 15. Kenny. It is a singular circumstance in the history of the Primitive Methodist Church in Eowral that any special event of late years has been accompanied by wet, unfavorable weather. This has been Ibe rule lately, and the weather accompanying the welcome tea to the Lev. E. Kenny on Monday evening was certainly no exception to that rule, for it was bitterly cold and uncomfortably wet during the day and night. However, despite the damp, the welcome took place at the time appointed, and was very well attended. The tea and public meeting weve held in the old School of Arts. After the good things had disappeared off the tables, and the tables had been cleared, and the seats properly arranged, the public meeting was held. Mr. C. Eenncti occupied the chair, and was sur rounded on tbe platform by. a galaxy of ministerial and musical talent, promihent amongsi whom was the warm-hearted new minister of the Primitive Methodist Church in Bowral—the Rev. B. Kenny, lately of Pa...

A GORDON ANECDOTE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 22 April 1885

A GOftDON ANECDOTE. While Gordon was in the command of the fort at Gravesend (writes a correspondent) pre vious to his representing England at the conference at Constantinople in 1871, he bad occasion to read up his French with a pro fessor named M. Ryder, who relates the fol lowing incident of which he was a witness : —Towards the end of 1871 an ex-officer of the Chinese Legion presented himself at the Fort House, Gravesend, and asked to see the General. On his card being given to Gor don, he threw it from him in disgust, and his anger was so great that for a few seconds he was speechless. When he was somewhat calmer, he expressed his feelings in the fol lowing words! " Tell that man to enter if he wishes me to blow out his brains." This would seem violent, but when it is known that the officer in question had deserted his colours and joined the rebels against whom Gordon was fighting iu China, the righteoua, indignation of the General can be under stood. The servant, who knew his ...

The Bowral Free Press. Do as adversaries do in law, Strive mightily, but eat and drink as friends. Wednesday, April 22,1885. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 22 April 1885

®{)t §oforal Jfm |P«ss. Do as adversaries do in law, Strive mightily, h.ut eat and drink as friends. Wednesday, April 22,1885. Some weeks since we referred in our leading columns to the maiu objects and functions of those institutions known throughout the civilized world as schools of arts or me chanics' institutes. In reverting to this importaut subject our chief aim is to offer some suggestions which might not be con sidered out of place at the present time, from the fact that in a few weeks hence the Bowral school of arts will be ready for open ing. Perhaps most of our readers have frequently heard it remarked by those who claim a knowledge of the parts of the case that, as a rule, schools of arts are invari ably failures throughout the land. Let us for one second, then, inquire what is the principal cause of such an opinion obtain ing circulation. It is always well to receive such utterances with a certain amount of suspicion and reserve ; for the world is now so full of pessimi...

WHERE BANANA TREES GROW. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 22 April 1885

WHERE BANANA TREES GROW. (By a former resident of Boxvral, now residing in the far north.) . Yes, of Bowral you may talk, With its red-bridge lovers' walk, ; May talk about your churches where the nice nice girls go ; Something better far than these I can show you, if you please, . Its the darling, charming country where banana trees grow. There the golden peaches shine, And the mulberries so fine Keep dropping from the branches when the breezes blow; Sure the dearest spot to me, On the earth or on the sea, Is the darling, charming country where banana trees grow. ' There some boiled potatoes sweet, With a piece of salted meat, • And bread that's more like putty or some unbaked dough, The folk live on week by week, And no other diet seek In the darling, charming country where banana trees grow. You may talk about your pies That are full of dust and flies, Your puddings and blanc-manges in a goodly row ; They nevel' will compare With the usual " bill of fare " Of the darling, charmin...

Original Poetry. SONG OF THE THRUSH. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 22 April 1885

SONG- OF THE THRUSH. Oh come, my beloved, the dark night is past, The sweet stars are fading, the day breaks at last; The night hawk has vanished with vanishing night, O'er meadows, o'er mountains, cornea morning's fair light; The raindrops are falling on bush and on tree— Oh come, my beloved, I wait now for. thee 1 The springtide was pleasant when warm days were long, I wooed thee, ray loved one, With many a song 5 In blossoming bowers we oft took our rest, 'Neath leaf-sheltered branches we built our dear nest; In sunshine or shower, on bush and on tree, Prom morn until even my song was for thee. The springtide fled quickly, the hot summer came, The sky was a furnace, the earth Was a flame; The young brood were hungry^-their hunger to meet, We laboured together, and labour was sweet. Nu time then for singing, for frolic and glee, But still, my beloved one, my heart beat for thee. Now, autumn iB painting the leaves brown and red-— Our nest is deserted, our young ones have fled ; Soo...

GORDON'S LIFE AT GRAVESEND. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 22 April 1885

GORDON'S LIFE AT GJJAVESEND. He came liome from Oliina in February, 1865, to find that his fame had come before him. Popular admiration expressed itself in the title of " Chinese" which afterwards distinguished him. The next six years were characteristically spent in entirely dif ferent work. He was appointed Command ing Royal Engineer at G-ravesend, charged with the construction of the new defences in course of oonstruction on the Thames. He spent all the leisure of these years amongst the poor. Invitations poured in upon him when he first returned to Eng gland, but he declined them all. He would not even allow his st,ory to be told. A Minister of State borrowed his manuscript journal of the Taiping war, and was so much interested in it as to send it to be privately printed. Major Gordon heard what was being done, rushed to the printer's, deman ded his manuscript, and had the type bro ken up. The manuscript has never been seen since. Mr. Egmont Hake, who nar rates this incident in ...

THE BUTTER-FACTORY SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 22 April 1885

THE BUTTEll-FACTOM SYSTEM. Our South Coast friends who have adopted the co-operative factory system of dairying in preference to the plan of "every one for himself," so honoured by our ancestors, and in use among the present generation up tu now, will find much reason on their side, if they will read some of the correspondence to the found every week in the English and American papers connected with such mat ters ; and the extracts we publish from these statistical details are quite sufficiently en couraging to make owners of dairy herds follow at oace iu the new groove. Meeting some practical Kiama farmers within the past few days we learn from them that the butter factory in work there is doing remark ably well, extending its operations and drawing in new members continually; which state of things is of course due to the fact that the institution is found to pay well, worked as at present, on co-operative lines. Without a doubt, when railway communi cation is established with Sydn...
