A Dangerous Practice. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 14 August 1901

.A Dangerous Practice. While a small picnic party from Bowral ■was surveying the cliarras of Lake Alexan dra, at Mittagong, on Saturday afternoon last, they were otartled by the report of a rifle, the bullet whizzing between two ladies {who were standiug close together) aud en tering the water near by. On recovering from the fright, and looking round, no one •was to be seen who would be the likely per petrator of such a dangerous practice. It is difficult to say whether the gun was dis charged intentionally or accidentally, but its qoutents went near sending someone into j .eternity without a moment's warning. We certainly think some steps should be taken to prevent the discharge of firearms nt suoh [ .clone quarters to one of Mittagong's favorite r,eaort8.

CHAINED BP TO DIE.. The chained skeleton of a young woman had been, "discovered in the town of Poultney, Vermont, and hag revealed an awful tragedy. The skeleton was found in the cellar of an. old house, long deserted, where a brick pit bad been constructed, holding an iron post, to which was fastened n lienvv chain.. The handcuffs still held the flenhless wriRfo. The doctors pronounced the skeleton to be that of a woman. Then it was remembered that this house was once occupied by n young French Canadian, Pierre Bourdon, who brought there one day a young and beautiful bride, also a French Canadian.. Unhappily her beauty made her the object of so much attention that Pierre became f ran tidy jenlous, %nd one dayk when he- caught her, as he thought, somewhat openly flirting with a young man of the town, he ordered her hnm,a, and no one but her hus band ever saw her again. It was. given out that she bad gone to Canada, and there, so far as the publio wa& concerned, the matter en...

WHAT GERMANY WOULD DO IN ENGLAND'S PLACE, "P.S.," the Boer resident in England whose vitriolic letter to the " Times " about a year since,, full of insensate abuse of everything British, will be remembered •has already " found salvation"—he threw up the sponge of Afrikanderom last Octo ber—and now he seeks ta induce his brother Boers to make peace. In a letter ! filling nearly a column of the times he wtites " I know that the Germans would very quickly end the war if they were in the place of the English, Our German friends have a very easy plan for i the, pacification of South Africa. It is to. transport all the Dutch population, men, women and children, from Africa to.Kaiser , Wilhelmsland and the Bismark Archipel- • ago, where they could expend their ener gies in forming new homes and in battling with the natural difficulties which would surround them.

DO YOU KNOW THESE SLANG EXPRESSIONS? [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 14 August 1901

DO YOU KNOW THESE SLANG EXPRESSIONS ? Mr. G, R. Sims writes in " The Refer eo":—Slang is always interesting. Old slang or new slang, the argot of the Ark, or the cant of kharkidom, it contains ele ments which appeal to the eye, the ear, and the intellect. Without being a mem ber of any of the sixty orders of prime coves, the man of the world may well allow slang to form part of his education. Without a knowledge of slang some of the best songs and dialogues of the modern music hall would be Chaldean to him. Here is an old flash or thieve's letter which 1 found among my papers the other day. See how condensed, how direct the communication becomes by means of the " flash language." Read the letter for yourself:—" I buzzed a bloke and a shak ester of a reader and a skin. My jomer stalled.

FARM and GARDEN THE "NUGGETY" DRAUGHT HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 14 August 1901

THE "NUGGETY" DRAUGHT HORSE. In its review of the latest show of the London Draught Mare Society, the " Live Stock Journal" note9 a distinct change taking place towards compact draught stock classified under the "nuggety" type. Fifteen years have elapsed, remarks our contemporary, since the first London cart horse parade was held in Battersea Park, and in the interim much has been done in every direction towards the improvement of our breeds of draught horses/ Shire men, Clydesdale men, and Suffolk men seem to be vieing with each other in try ing to produce thehorse which is best suited for heavy town haulage, and though threatened with electric motors and many other forms of street tug boats, they do not lack the.least in the display of their enthusiasm. All the big haulage firms are working towards the general adoption of " the big little horse." Messrs. Whit bread's people still stick to the short legged sorts, with considerable spread and much activity, and the shire judges seem...
