SELF-RINGING LETTER BOXES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 9 May 1905
SELF-RINGING LETTER BOXES The eleotrio letter box is a novel Bng gestion. As the letters are dropped into the Btreet door box, eleotrio coutaot is made and s bell is rung in the kitchen, and continues ringing until the letters are removed, xnis is a very simple and admirable provision against the possibilitj of an important letter that may demand an inBtaU reply lying un noticed in the box. A variation of this device consists of a slanting: box, at tho lower end of which there is a sheet of metal working on swivel points. When the letter is dropped into the box it Blides down upon the metal sheet and holds the lower edge down, thus making an electric circuit that rinse & bell continuon ly until somebody goes to the box and iete tho letter out, which is done by unhooking and raising the front part of the box. ...-??,

FOOLING WITH FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 9 May 1905
FOOLING WITH FIRE. A well-worn Americanism has it that if you monkey with a buzz-saw, you're bound to get hurt. And it is also safe to prophesy that if you fool with a healthy fire, you'll burn yourself some, and that 3-011 won't earn much sympathy bj squealing. * * * Matters in connection -with the continuous strugle between the conservative and democra tic forces in the Queanbeyan Borough Council were advan ced a further stage on Friday, when writs were served 011 Aid. Woodger and Downe}', calling on them to show cause why the}' should not be ousted from their aldermanic positions on account of alleged irregular voting. What the alleged irregularities amount to, it is at present impossible to ssty, as at the time of writing the affidavits of Messrs. E. C. and J. H. Hincksmau and W. S.

Likely Trouble over a[?]ining Claim. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 9 May 1905
Likely Trouble over aJKlnwff Claim. The Braidwood Dispatch says : With reference to Dargue's Claim, there is likly to be some litigation over it. After lying idle for years it was no sooner taken up again by a party of working miners than a a notice appeared in the Gazette cancelling the lease granted to the owners of the ground under the Mining on Private Lands Act on account of the labor conditions not having been fulfilled. ..Following upon this,- application was made for authority to enter by Mr. J. A. Gregg, on behalf of a syndicate, the leading spirits of which ar& pretty well known. The application was of course granted, the land being by its cancellation thrown open to any one. The matter will shortly come before the Warden's Court, the date for its hearing not yet having been fixed.

SELECTED VERSE. THE RISING OF LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 9 May 1905
r SELECTED VERSE, a TRB BIBTJTO OF Ii&BOZ. I hear in the Autumn voices Of winds a jubilant tone, For the heart of the world rejoices That Labor shall claim its own. It has lain in the dust for aces. By the feet of Might downtrod, Aud the world stood back, and cried 'Alack! But this is the will of God.' He has put His curse on Labor It suffers for ' Adam's sin,' Bnt Truth, like the stroke of the sal ,re, Has let the sunlight in. She has cnt the creed-made curtain And shown us the true God's face That is not dark with hatred's mark, But fair with Love's own grace. He is not the God of Classes. He is not the God of Gold, But he is the God of Masses Who toil in the beat and cold. And unto the heart of Labor, Desolate, sick, and numb, He speaks from the skies, and he says 11 Arise ! For the day and the hour have come.' And ont of its hand-nude prison, Out of the dark and dust, Has Labor at last arisen And it cries to Might—' Be Just.' It wastes no words and gesture, In the calmne...
