Water Supply. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906
Water Supply. One of the most important affairs in connection with any town is a (jood water supply. Iu this respect flenty is very deficient. The majority of people having to rely ou the generosity of their neighbours, con sequently the supply is very limited, and easily exhausted if economy is not practised. Drinking water at the present time is brought here Ijy train. The only provision that has beeu made hero is a railway tank,' therefore, it's not a public affair. The department looks after their own interests in this respect. Two or three different schemes were suggested at different times but none of them seem to meetjirith approval, either the Government was to blame, or a certain amount of apathy was shown by the townspeople, who allowed the nv:ller to drop. This accounts iu .. Pleasure for the diffi culties we are placed iu at times iu connection with a supply of good water. For stock purposes many are complainiug of the shortness of supply, and if rain kaug6 off much long...

Handling of Wheat. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906
Handling of Wheat. Owing to tho disturbance Lhat has lately arisen in connection with the lumping of wheat at Dulling Harbour Sydney, representations are likely to be made by those directly interested, when Parliament meets to have the size of the present wueai sacn lowered lo allow of more effective handling by ordinary individuals. There is no doubt that wheat lumping under present conditions is very laborious, a man has got to be con stitutionally strong to stand it und,er the sweltering sun, and well earns bis money. A little disturbance look place hero with one gang of wheat lumpers over non-payment, the matter terminating last week by the principals being paid off, and gettiug shunted out of the yards.
New School. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906
New School. Our new brick school, which waB finished many weeks ago, still re mains unopened for the sake of about a day and a half's labor in fastening desks to the floor. This is a crying shame in such trying weather as we are undergoing at the present time. The old school was partitioned otl to make a class room iu expectation of getting into the new building, aud into this old building, already con demned for holding school in, the teachers have to go. It is no won der illness is prevalent amongst them. The head teacher 1ms been confined to his bed the greater part of the week through the trying cir cumstances under -which lie is placed, and many children are also absent on account of being indisposed through the trying conditions. Meanwhile, a cool, comfortable building is lying idle. The place cannot be occupied without certain formalities being observed, which are known as red tapeism. The Public Works Department called for the tenders, and when they are passed by the officer...
PRAISING THE LAZY MAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906
PRAISING THE LAZY MAN. It must be admitted that some of the best work that lias lived has been done by indolent men. This is es pecially true as regards literature. The finest description of a sunrise was written by the poet Thomson in bed. Coleridge was one of the most indo lent of men, vet bis work is, of its, kind, unapproached. One of the most important improve ments in the steam-engine was due to the indolence of James Watt. Many other examples might be quoted, but, as a general rule, it is fairly correct to say that work which is the outcome of meditation or prolonged observa tion is best performed by people whose natural Indolence makes them care less of the strife and bustle in which an active temperament would tend to Immerse them.
Show Ground. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906
Show Ground, Our Agricultural Show, turning out a financial success last year, the committee deemed it wise to procure a ground of their own. A subcom mittee was appointed lo iuspect the only vacant and available piece of Crown land adjacent tb the town. They reported favorably on it, and that it was about 20 acres. Repre sentations were made for this piece of ground by the Show Society, the Department advising that it was in the bauds of the District Surveyor for report. Urged on by Mr. Ball, M.P., who has not allowed the mat ter to rost, the District Surveyor from Wagga called ou tho Secretary of the Show lust Thursday, and with ii few other members of the Commit tee, an inspection was imdo of tho ground. It is anticipated that the report will bo favorable.
A STORY OF LORD NELSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906
A STORY OF LORD NELSON. A curious anecdote is related in re ference to Benjamin West's picture of the 'Death of Nelson.' Just before Nelson went to sea for the last time, West sat next to the great captain at an .entertainment given in bis hon or, and In the course of dinner Nel son expressed his regret to Sir Wil liam Hamilton that he had little taste or discrimination tor art. 'But,' said he, turning to West, 'there is one pic ture whose power I do feel. I never pass a print shop where your 'Death of Wolfe' is in the window without be ing stopped by' It.' West, of course, made his acknowledgments, and Nel son went on to ask why he had paint ed no more of them like it. 'Because, my lord, there are no more subjects.' 'Confound it,' said the sailor, 'I didn't think of that,' and asked him to take a glass of champagne. 'But, my lord, I fear your intrepid ity will yet furnish me such another scene, and if it should, I shall certain ly avail, myself of it.' 'Will you?'.«aid Nelson, pour...

Malcolm occupied the pulpit, ,u kI preached from the trxt, John JO, \prse 0: ' 1 am the vine; ye are the branches. He that ahidelh in me, and I in him, the SiVino biingoth forth much fruit ; for without me ye can -lo nothing.' In a. very able way he explained that unless we are grafted on the vine (Christ) we cannot receive the strength we need to live pure lives, mid at the close he asked all those who wished, to remain for a short prayer meeting.

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906
FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. The man came along the street with his belllopper set at a sharp angle on the back of his head, his umbrella wav ing in the breeze, his collar broken loose, his seven-and-sixpenny gun metal watch hanging .out, and one leg of his trousers turned ut- almost tn the knee. His nose was very red, his eyes were half-veiled under heavy lids, and what was visible of them bad a strange, dull, dead appearancj. The poor man staggered in his wtrik, and now and again his feet got tangled with each other, and trying to disen tangle them, he looked like a taran tula doing, a mazurka on a hot .oven. Sometimes going sideways, his centre of gravity got ahead of him, and he had to give a little run to catch up. Sometimes the end of his umbrella poked into people's eyes, sometimes it poked Into their mouths, but in either case, they swore with equal volubility. He fell down in Swanston-street, and, after u struggle, got up on his bands and knees, and gravely surveyed the situation....

Correspondence. (TO TH15 EDITOB.) SlE, — In the report of the Henty meeting of the F. aud S. Association in your issue of the 10th hist., there is a misapprehension as regards the wheat sent in for the F.A.Q. staud nril_ This is the first year that the Chamber of Commerce hns allowed the farmers a voice in the fixing of of the F.A.Q. Each branch of the Fanners and Settlers Association was requested to send in a sample of the wheat of the district. The mat ter was brought before the members of the Henly branch, aud they were asked to have their sample in by the date fixed. Bj.it unfortunately, they did not secni to realise the import ance of Iho matter, as, with the ex ception of one man, they all failed to comply with flic request. The simple (80lbs.) ^ent down was grown by Lock wood Bros. As it happened, the sample submitted was of very liiyb quality. This neces sarily hud iho effect of raising the* F.A.Q. , which, of course, is not in the bust interests uf Uie wheat grower. It is ...
CLOTHES CONFER COURAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906
CLOTHES CONFER COURAGE. Clothes were originally worn for warmth and protection against the weather. But to-day that Is only one ot their uses,' remarked a philoso phical tailor. A man's clothes not only may de note Ills rank in life; they are often a very clear index to his character, and, as such, interpreted ? by men who know the world. 'Again, your clothes may not only inspire confidence In those you meet; they can give you a good deal of con fidence. How much easier it is to face the ordeal of a public appearance if you know you are well, dressed. In that sense you may actually derive courage from your clothes. 'It has long been a favorite belief of mine, that the elaborate manners, the flowery modes of speech, and the graceful movements of the eighteenth century were really due to the ele gant clothes worn by our ancestors. The very cut and style of their gar ments demanded such things!'
HENTY NEWS. Our Railway Station. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 17 February 1906
HENTY NEWS. [FI10M OUB SPECIAL 11EPBESEKTATIVE.] Our Railway Station. One of the first badly needed wants of this town is- a new station. In view of the importance of this dis trict it is a matter of great surprise that the erection of a suitable station, has not been entered ou long ago. The present structure is totally inade quate for the growing trade, and pre sents an appearance more suggestive of somo old grain shed, or a collec tion of dog kennels, than a railway station. _lt is a decidedly disagree ablo sensation at times, to go near the place owing to piles of skins and hides which give forth objectionable odours. If half-a-dozen people are in a hurry to get in to send a parcel away, they crowd in on one another, for there is not even sufficient room for that small number to move about I comfortably. It is also a common ! occurrence to find the place choked ! up with all sorts of stuff, and one I has to be careful how to dodge it in going to the station to do business. The g...
