An Old Story. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 16 October 1909

An Old Story. Up in an old dusty attic Where spider-webs sway, In a far off corner, Hid from the light of day, I found a little packet Tied with ribbons blue ; And it told an old, sweet story — Of two hearts forever true. Within the yellowed pages Of letter number one, Started their life's story, Which through the packet run A rippling silvered stream, Of love-lit, youthful raptures Running by sweet scented meadows, Away through evergreen pastures, Till it reached the red-gold glory Of a mellowed, setting sun. A century full has passed Since those two began to love ; It long has ended here, And they are spirits above, Floating forever together In a realm of heavenly love. I placed the little packet. With tender, loving hands Within a treasured casket Still tied with its blue bands, Just as I found the packet. The letters numbered small —   With poetry in the centre — And the ribbons round it all,   Much treasured little packet, With its secret of earthly lo...

I i . ? ? ? .-. i [From our Own Correspondent.] The sudden rise in temperature in Sydney was responsible for a' larger influx of visitors at the week end . But although' they ? missed ? the oppressive 94 degrees : temperature in the city, there being a large percentage of humidity on the Sunday, very warm weather was experienced here. But as elsewhere there, was a decided change on Sunday night when rain fell in sheets accompanied by very vivid sheet lightning and thunder, while the wind blew with the strength of a gale. Rev. Phillip Dowe, B.A. preached on Sunday last' to most appreciative congre gations in Holy Trinity 'Church, an ex change having been effected with Rev.1 W. H. Croft, who preached at Clifton, Thirroul and Bulli. A number of the children belonging' to the Sower's Band in connection with Holy Trinity Church together with the Lawson Band, travelled to Sy...

LEURA. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 23 October 1909

[?] |From our Own Correspondent.] Now that the season is upon us, and people arriving- daily, the question of the railway bridge becomes a burning one, -and .as the Railway Commissioners do not seem, inclined to consider the dangerous condi tioti of the miserable structure, and with the exception of a letter from the . Muni cipal Council now and again nothing seems likely to be done, it only remains for the , people to rise in a mass and demand that : .the bridge be immediately widened, and ithe footpath made at least eight feet wide. It is a wonder there has not been an acci ?dent attended with loss of life before now, for during any part of a -busy- day there is not room for even a buggy to pass the cabs ?with- safety, let alone a motor car. I^etthe people hold a mass meeting and denounce the bridge in terms strong enough, and probably the Commissioners will listen and do something. . The cattle straying nuisance is now be .coming a positive menace to the people. The Municipal Cou...

Katoomba Rifle Club. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 23 October 1909

Katoomba Rifle Club. The Katoomba Rifle Club have called a meeting of its members for Monday evening next at Gilchrist's, and the meeting is one which is fraught with so much of vital im nortance to TCatrvomba. that pvpvv nipmhpr of the Club is urged to* attend. Captain Hicks has received promises of support from such a large number of influential officers and clubs for the Peacock Trophy Contest,, which takes place in Katoomba on the 15th November, that the Committee feel incompetent to deal with it without the assistance of all the members. To meet the requirements and to decide on a course of action will be the business before the meeting on Monday evening. A very large attendance of visitors is anticipated, and this contest will attract a large number who perhaps have never been to Katoomba be fore, and their reception and impressions they take back is of the greatest importance to this district. It will be a big advertise ment for the place, and the proper care of those visitor...

Spring Fair, and Industrial Exhibition. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 23 October 1909

Spring Fair, and Industrial Exhibition. The Katoomba Methodist Church had fine weather for the opening, of their Spring Fair and Industrial Exhibition, and a, very large attend ance of parishioners and friends from as far down the line as Springwood.; T^ike all such exhibitions the taste and skill of the ladies is not only in strong' evidence, but is the chief attraction, and this exhibition was no exception to , the general rule. The stalls were very prettily decorated, and the theme of general admiration'. The Fair was bound to be a success, for the ladies have been en gaged working it up for some weeks, and could scarcely help a feeling of satisfaction at the re sult. After singing 'The Old Hundred'.' and prayer by the Rev. r' M. leaver ty, Rev. T. F. Potts made a few opening remarks, in which he said that there seemed to prevail an opinion that whenever the Methodist Church got lip anything they were sure to have wet weather, but in this case they had fine weather, and all would...

THE PROPOSED irOWN HALL. - ? , ...??'? -i ??.. The inquiry held by Mr. J. S. Mollison, from the Priblic Works Department, at the Council Chambers on Monday last was at tended by a larger numb.er of ratepayers than was anticipated, and the question whether or not the Council should build a Hall was pretty we'll thrashed out. There was but one voice on the necessity existing for a Hall which would be 'adequate to the requirements of the town, but where the Hall should be built brought out some very decided opinions. While Mr. Mollison al lowed a free expressson of individual ;p,pinign, such opinions had nothing what ever to do with-tlje question from the Gov- ? ernment's standpoint, which was simply whether the Council should be allowed to borrow the ,£3000 required for the purpose. Where the Hall will be built is for the Council to say, unless the Council decide to refer the matter to the ratepayers for decision, which they are not at present in clined to do. It was made quite plain ...

' I reckon you have to watch your pocket book an' overcoat an' watch, an' so on, pretty close, don't you?' a Western visitor to New York asked a friend, a native of the metrop olis, as they were starting out to view the city; and, despite the citizen's assurance that no more than ordinary vigilance was re quired. Presently they entered a cafe for luncheon. ' What are you watching so closely,' he inquired. 'Just keeping an eye on my overcoat,' the other replied. The New Yorker laughed. 'Oh, the coat's alright. s I'm not worrying about mine. They are hanging together.' 'No, they ain't,' the Wes terner drawled. ' Mine's still there, but yours is gone—fellow walked out with it 'bout ten minutes or so ago.' Do men with a fancy to hunt ? ng watches ever kill time. 'Dresses and Hats !' exclaimed a man in an effort to be wittily philosophical. ' It is the eternal I feminine.' ( . j 'No,' corrected a friend, 'you are not right — it is the external , feminine.' '
