" I MUST CO!" [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 16 April 1902

" I MUST CO !i" Wellington's tastes and habits, like those of-"most great men, were very ' simple. He cared not for pomp or show of any kind. Instead of build ing a counterpart to Blemheim, for which the nation had voted "him mo ney he. bought and improved Strath i fieldsaye, an ordinary country gen tleman's house. In his diet lie was ! very abstemious, even to the injury, it is said, of his health. He, of course, kept a first-class French cook for his guests. The cook, it is said, one. day. suddenly resigned. "The Dune f'n astonishment, asked the reason. "Was his salary insufficient?" " No, iny salary is very handsome ; but I am not appreciated. I cook your dinner myself, a dinner fit for a king: You say nothing. I go out and 1 leave the under-cook to cook your dinner. He gives you a dinner fit for a pig. You say nothing.. I am not j appreciated. I must go."

A PRIMITIVE TELEPHONE SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 16 April 1902

A PRIMITIVE TELEPHONE SERVICE. People often wonder how the natives in Africa contrive to trans mit news with apparently miraculous rapidity across miles of bush and desert. The explanation is a simple *one.; They use a telephone. However, the Soudanese telephone is nothing like the electric one in use in Europ ean countries. It is of two kinds— a' hollowed-out elephant tusk of immense size or a tom-tom. The tusk can be made to transmit seven dis tinct notes by means of a slice of tree bark, which is placcd on the out side of the tusk.at varying distances from the mouthpiece. By means of this instrument sounds can be heard at a distance of several miles, and messages are frequently transmitted as much as 200 miles in a single day by these primitive megaphones.

THE FREE PRESS. Puhlieh'ed in Bowral, Mittagonff, and Robertson, Wednesday, April 16, 1902. At the recent unemployed demonstration held in the Town "Hall, Sydney, some of the speakers, although in " dead earnest," were decidedly humourous without seem ing to be aware of the fact. We read that one of, the speakers , said.: '/ The press of the country was the' betrayer of thepeople's liberties. It was devoid of honour and was simply run to put money in the pockets of the proprietors." Al though we are in sympathy with any mo'venleint that would have as its object the., amelioration of the/condition of the unemployedy we decidedly object to' the •slander that the press of this country is the betrayer of the people's liberties. We do not object to the statement that papers are run to put money in the pockets of the proprietors. Some people imagine papers ; should. be run for the purpose of putting money into the pockets of dead beats and ' 'loafers. One speaker said : " For a thou sand ...

WHERE EMERY COMES FROM. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 16 April 1902

WHERE EMERY COMES FROM. Not the least important of the several important minerals at present largely used is emery, which chiefly coines from the island of Naxos, in the eastern Mediterranean. Emery is one of the hardest substances known and it is found in massive layers or beds, which have to be blasted before the miners can work at it. Great fires are then lighted round the blocks and as the natural cracks are expand ed by the heat, the workers insert heavy levers or crow-bars and prise them apart. This system is contin ued until the blocks are reduced in size to"*"masses of a cubic foot or less and they are then ready to be shipped in bulk, to various parts of the world The greatest consumers of Emery are the manufacturers of wheels for polishing metals and precious stones. A large quantity of this substance is also employed for making whet and oil stones for grinding razors, knives and other edged tools. In a reduced or powdered state the mineral is used for making emery paper.<...

STORIES OF MR. KRUCER. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 16 April 1902

STORIES OF MR. KRUCER. The innate prejudice cfierished by j Mr. Krtiger in respect to the most familiar forms of English etiquette is amusingly exemplified in the following . story . i When Lord and Lady Loch paid a ! visit to Bloemfontein in 1895 President Kruger who was at that period re siding in the town, was introduced to Lady Loch, and later on was of fered the honor of conducting her ladyship in to dinner. 1-Ie failed, however, to appreciate the delicate courtesy of the act sug gested, and, with his ^usual bluff dis regard of things graceful and seemly made a vigorous protest, and ended by saying " What 1 Take an Englishwoman into dinner when Mrs. Kruger is here? Nothing of the kind—- my wife is good enough forme, and I will not do it. On another occasion Mr. Kruger was reluctantly persuaded to attend a grand concert given in Pretoria, lie lingered so long in his home that he did not arrive at the concert until some time after the hour for begining.

COULDN'T RESIST IT. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 16 April 1902

COULDN'T RESIST IT. A retired signalman tells a strange story of a mental disorder that seiz ed him, after many years' fortunate work on the railways. At first it was only a passing thought of what a disaster he could bring about, any day, by a movement of his hand. As the. weeks went by this thought gradually became a de finale impulse to alter the correct signals at critical moments. ' For some time he was able to shake oft the evil spell with a scornful laugh but, at; length, it was only by a strong effort of the will, that he could keep his hands off the levers. Then lie grew alarmed, and applied for a short leave to pull himself to gether. It was granted, and it was arranged that he should leave after his spell of night duty. After midnight lie had set the sig nals against an ordinary passenger train, to allow a special to pass. Of a sudden the horrible impulse seized him with such force that his hands seemed held and drawn as in a grip of iron. In a moment it was done, and the...

The Turks never delight in the lux ury of a Turkish hath, while wax is not a constituent of sealing wax, and catgut is procured from sheep. Baffin's bay is not a bay, and nei ther titmouse, nor slirewmouse is a mouse. • Kid gloves are manufactured from sheep or lamb skins, and not kid, while rice paper is not made from the rice plant, and German silver is not silver at all nor is it of German origin.

Presbyterian. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 16 April 1902

Presbyterian. &amp;nbsp; The Rev. A. J. Carter, who is acting as locum tenens in the Bowral-Mittagong parish during the Rev. G. A. Gordon's absense, arrived in Bowral on Saturday from Nundle. On Sunday he preached &amp;nbsp; at Mittagong at 11, and Bowral.at 3.30 and 7. All the services were well at- tended, and it is anticipated that Mr. Carter's short stay will be much ap- preciated. At Nundle on Monday evening last, April 7th, the Rev. A. J. Carter was &amp;nbsp; accorded a very enthusiastic, send-off by the members of the Presbyterian body in that town. At the conclusion of the pro- ceedings, Mr. F. Payne, on behalf of the congregation, presented Mr. Carter with a purse of sovereigns, and wished him every success in his new sphere of work.
