Wrangiers. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 17 June 1910

Wranglers. In the Middle A^'ea, when learning wag elevated to respectability in European colleges, uxercUes consisted largely of disputations, ami those who engaged in them were called disputants, or wranglers. One candidate was pitted against another, or against a col lege don, to thrash a, question out. Wrangle is a very suitable word, for the process often consisted of a battle royal, carried on by twisting an opponent's words bo as utterly to b.ifflo or confuse him. In the University of Cambridge, in the fifteenth century, " an ould bachelor," as representative of the Uni versity, had to Kit ou a three-'.«£ged stool (hence the word Tripos), " beforo Mr. Proa tours," to test the abilities of the candida tes for degrees, by arguing with the " eldest son " of them. If these trials turn ed out satisfactorily, the Moderator would compliment the candidates by saying to each, " Summo ingeuii acumiue duputasti."

Important Pearl Fisheries. The moat important pearl fisheries are in tlm Indian Ocean ; othors ure ill tho Gulf of California and the Carribbean Sea. Pearls taken from different localities vary, each locality having its marked characteristics. Many people who have but a slight knowledge of this gem believe pearls found in the fresh water rivers of our own country to be of in ferior quality.

MODERN SOCIAL DEMANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 17 June 1910

MODERN SOCIAIi DEMANDS. One curious phase of taking ourselves so seriously is the enormously increased importance of the Interesting. Society fairly bristles with the Interesting. Sometimes one wonder where the unin teresting go. Modern society demands that - you should be something, or do something, • or say something, 'or at least pretend to. It is understood that you must be celebrated, or notorious, or well advertised, or cheeky, and even dishonest if it is on a magnificent scale. At any rate, you must take yourself seriously and get a swelled head.— "Fortnightly Review."
