A Pack-horse Trip to the Caves. WRITTEN FOR THE BLUE MOUNTAIN ECHO. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 9 October 1909

A Pack-horse Trip to the Caves. Written for thk Brvur-; Mountain Echo. It was quite a brilliant ration to conceive that a mixed walking party should ' do ' the six foot track from Katoombato Jenolan, but it would have been a hare-brained venture to go without that pack-horse. He was the impersonation of all that is stolid, patient, obstinate, lazy, and cunning, and, as the immortals say, he rejoiced in the name of Bob. A nondescript colour was he — something between roan, grey, and the most commonplace pepper and salt, but he had four white fetlocks, and the near-side rear one had once been dislo ctiLcu, tiu uutL wiicii me pain uecaiiic iiioiiuiujiuus it was a scientific diversion to walk behind and see his ankle jerk rythmically out and in. Bob rejoiced in a pack-saddle besides his aristo cratic name, and two fat saddle-bags swung hooked on either side in symmetrical corpulence. These made a fine platform for blankets, swags, baskets, and what' not, and round the whole circled a le...

The Ashes of Gautama Buddha. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 9 October 1909

The Ashes of Gautama Buddha. A discovery of extraordinary interest is reported by the Archaeological Department of India. For .some time past a systematic survey of the Pesha wur Valley, an area noted for Che number of Buddhistic remains which have been unearthed, has been carried on under Government auspices. There is no doubt that the whole of the valley was .the seat of a very advanced Buddhistic civilisation and power. Roads were constructed across the ?passes to the north-west, and graded on the most scientific principles, notably that over the Mala kand Pass into the Swat Valley, and now again in use, and that valley itself is full of remains of Buddhistic buildings, relics, and inscriptions. In July, quite near Peshawur, there was found in an ?ancient Buddhist stupa, or shrine, what are almost . certainly a portion of the ashes of Gautama Buddha. Th.e .relics are enclosed in a rock crystal recep 'tacle, sealed with the royal seal of the great Bud .dhist Emperor Kanishka, who ...

LEURA. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 16 October 1909

[?] I From our Own Correspondent.] L,ast week Mr. J. Nelson Fraser, Prin cipal of the Training College for Secondary Teachers, Bombay, India, spent a day in the Leura Public School. Mr. Fraser is touring various countries inquiring into the educational methods, and is to prepare a report for his Government. Being anxious to see a country school in operation, he was referred to the Leura Public School by the Under Secreta^ for Education, Mr. Board. In his remarks in the visitors' book, Mr. Fraser says :— ' I am much interested in the equipment of the school, and have not seen a school which evinced more activity in this direction. The children's work was lively and intelligent. Their knowledge of Indian history quite striking to an Anglo Indian, and they were able to put some thoughtful questions to a visitor.' Mr. Fraser congratulated Mr. Gollan on the condition of the School, and said his day there was one of the happiest he had spent since abroad. H. Richardson, Esq., Railway Comm...

Professor David's Lecture. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 16 October 1909

Professor David's Lecture. It has often been said that Australians lament ably lack any disposition to be publicly instructed — that when they assemble it is primarily for amusement, and the comic element must forma major part of the programme. This charge, at anyrate, cannot be iustly laid at the door of the Blue Mountains folk, if they are to be judged by their attendance at Professor David's lecture last Friday night. The old Masonic Hall was not only too small to accommodate all those who would like to have listened, but the immense crowd for tunate enough to get in, although many suffered great discomfort in the crowding, settled down to silent attention, so that no word of the explorer's address should be lost. And they were amply rewarded. . Mr. Crawford, President of the School of Arts, in introducing the Professor,, explained that the School of Arts Committee had determined that the more important functions.; of the Institute should be exercised, and that the present effort...

THE PROPOSED TOWN HALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 16 October 1909

THE PROPOSED TOWN HALL. The lecture at the old Masonic Hall on Friday evening last furnished the best pos sible proof of how sadly a new Town Hall is needed for Katoomba. On that occasion the Hall was crowded to the utmost, every available seat being reserved, and even then a large number of persons from other places who intended to hear Professor David did not come because they were informed there were no seats available. The cheaper seats had to be withdrawn through the de mand for reserved seats, thus depriving- a large number from coming, which would not have been the case had there been sufficient seating capacity. And just here is where we wish to impress upon the rate payers the importance of insisting upon the immediate construction of a suitable Hall by the Town Council. On Monday next an officer from the Public Works De partment will be in Katoomba, and will hold an inquiry at the Council Chambers at 2.30 p.m. in connection with the applica tion made by the Council for pow...
