Sporting Sparks. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 18 September 1909

Sporting Sparks. [By Snookered.] Quite a number of the local sports had a royal time at athe Burragorang Race Meeting held on Monday of last week. Mayor James was success ful in pulliug off the two principal events of the programme, his both neddies coming to the bar rier as red-hot favorites. The wins proved most popular. * * * Mac, (not the Scot), that most popular sport, had rather hard luck at the meeting, having to be contented with second honors in three events. This will not deter him from making an attempt to pull off a Sydney Cup or Megalong Saucer at a later date. * * * Iv. and J. James proved most successful in the pigskin ; the former steering the winners of three events, whilst Jack shewed his good horsemanship by annexing two others. * ?* * We notice that Nelson is wearing a perpetual smile since his return from the meeting.

The Bachelor's Soliloquy. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 18 September 1909

,,The Bachelor's Soliloquy. To love, or not to love ; that is the question ; Whether 'tis better for a man to suffer The stings and sorrows of a. lonely bachelorhood, Or by taking arms against a sea of troubles, And by marrying end them. To love, to marry; To marry ; perchance to be uuhapp}' ; ay} there's . the rub ; For on that sea of matrimony what storms may come When we have left this port of bachelorhood Must give us pause ; there's the reason That makes us loth to leave this haven ; bor who would bear the paying bills for two, The plumber's delay, the proud cook's haughtiness, The pangs of staying in at night, the children's yells, ' ' When by himself lie might be at ease . In his club? Who would be lonesome And live and love a bachelor's life But for the dread of something after marriage ? The well-discovered country from whose bourne So manv travellers would e'en return, puzzles the will And makes us rather bear those ills we have Thau fly to others we know not of. Thus marr...

Hysteria: What Causes It? [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 18 September 1909

Hysteria: What Causes It? -' It is a popular fallacy that hysteria is en tirely a woman's ailment. As a matter of fact, men are at times victims of hysteria, symptoms having even been noticed in strong, laboring men after injuries and accidents. But, undoubtedly, women suf ferers are in the vast majority. Why ? ?*.. Well, because the cause of 113'Steria — that is to say the chief foundation of it — is nerve weakness, and this more frequently attacks women than men. To discover the cause of hysteria, then, we must look to the nerves and find out what brings about their debility. In probably six out of ten cases you will find the cause to be want of nour ishment. It is surprising how many well-to-do girls and women fall victims to all sorts of li3'S~ terical symptoms simply because they will not understand that nerves must be nour ished by g'ood blood, and that you cannot have good, rich blood unless you eat a 'proper quantity of wholesome food. Think over your friends and acquaintanc...

A fairly good audience attended at the Me chanics' Institute on Friday evening last to wit ness a repetition of that sparkling little comedy, ' The Rivals,' which was presented a few weeks ago with such marked success. On this occasion it lost nothing by the repetition, but on the con trary seemed to have somewhat improved in the interval. The same people appeared in the same characters, and the ease and familiarity with the situations were marked. The costumes, too, brought us back one hundred years, and gave us a glimpse of how people dressed in that far-off period. Mr. W. Marshall as 'Sir Anthony Abso lute' gave the audience a splendid representation of a most peculiar character. It was a real treat. Mr. Marshall is without doubt the best amateur actor we have any recollection of seeing. The other characters s...

CHALLENGE TO MR. DOOLEY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 25 September 1909

CHALLENGE TO MR. DOOIyEY. TO THE EDITOR. Sir, — In yours of Saturday, the 18th hist., there appears a report with a heading as above. At first I was under the impression that it was simply one of Mr. Hurley's funny stories which have made him famous. But perhaps he is in earnest, and treating it as such, I will attempt to analyse his challenge. As far as I can ascertain from the re ports I have read, Mr. Hurley, while speaking at a social function of the Katoomba Iyiberal League, said something to the effect that the charges made by me in Parliament were groundless, frivolous, and untrue, and that he was prepared to bet me ^100 that the charges could not be substantiated, and the loser's wager to go to a charitable Insti tution. I am prepared to admit at once that it would be so much bunkum and skite for me to talk of bet ting ^'100, as I find it quite enough to pay 20s in the £ and look in every man's face. Further more, as I have never in my life made a bet of even £l, I have no d...
