Seceding from the Commonwealth. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 17 October 1902
Seceding from the Coni moifi wealth. In the Legislative Assembly on Tues day, Mr. Eden George moved an adjournment to discuss the necessity of taking steps to enable New South Wales to secede from the Common wealth owing to the bad and grossly unconstitutional administration of tbe Federal Government. Mr. George contended that federation had been a ghastly and costly failure, and that tbe Commonwealth Government had administered Australian affairs with great extravagance. Mr. J. Fitzpatrick supported the idea of secession, and said he warned the people against the dangers of federation when the matter '.vas before tbe electors. Mr. J. Hurley challenged Mr. Eden George to go to the Town Hall and re peat his statements. He expressed surprise at the agility with which Mr. George had shed his federal coat, and now posed as a secessionist, when a few months ago lie was advocating federation and contesting a federal seat in the Bartonian interests. Mr. Eden considered no good could come o...

Wlien I Gould neither Eat nor Stop. §Mr. F. W. DuBleu, of Collingwood, Victoria, sends us his 1 photograph and ' I certainly ought to know about Ayer's Sarsaparilla, for I liave used it over SO years. My faith in it is greater today than ever. I am anxious to tell every one of its blood-purifying power and its value as a remarkable preventive of disease. I don't : wait until I am down sick before taking It. Just as soon as I feel weak, exhausted, or lose my appetite, or don't sleep well, I take a few doses, and in a day or two am all right. I tell my friends to keep it on hand, for it's ready then the very day they want it. I know it has often prevented me from being seriously ill, and I have many acquaintances who tell the same 'The World's Greatest Family Medicine. Aycr's Sarsaparilla has been sold for over half a century. It has been tried and tested in every way. Nothing like using an old, reliable, and effective medicine. Intelligent people do not like to experiment. It's too d...
Pointed Paragraphs. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 17 October 1902
Pointed Paragraphs. — o ? Eveky rich man has a lawyer for an boir. Words are merely the echoes o£ thought. Few men are capable of auswering the arguments of a pretty woman. A yacht can stand on a tack in silence, but a man isn't built like a yacht. Beauty draws with a single hair — and it is .sometimes dyed hair at that. A man without ambition is like a pan of dough without any yeast to raise it. Always think twice before you speak — and nine times out of a possible ten you will have no occasion to say a word. The truth about some men is never known until after they acquire monu ments — and even then it isn't found upon the monuments. , If there is one time more than another when a woman should be I alone with ber thoughts it is when a r passing vehicle splashes mud on her 'j| new gown. ' ? Many a man has made the discovery too late that be misjudged his. enemy' ?!* — especially after attempting to lick ^ bim and getting beautifully licked ^ himself. - We wou^ : remitid local busine...

A New Pastime. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 17 October 1902
A Mfew Pastime. Rumoub has it that ping-pong is threatened with a successor, and ac cording to all accounts the new game, being much more foolish than the one whioh has held us all in thrall during the past year, is likely to prove more popular. It certainly opens up for a new form of amusement, but it can not be held that it adds to the dignity of players. It has been said that it «l ? t 1 ? ? ? ? J1 ? 1 ? L does DOG UBCozne eiueny auu uurpuieut persons to stand at all manner of awk ward angles making lunges at a small celluloid ball, and still less becoming is it for tbem to be scrambling under furniture after tbe same, but. the new fad seems destined to place its players in even more absurd positions, whether they play indoors or out, as the game permits. It is described as parlor-polo, and has the great advant age of requiring no table, special ground or particular space, but tbe materials required are the ponies and the mallets, the former consisting of tbe hobby-horse of child...
