RECRUITING. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 9 October 1915

' RECRUITING* The enrolling of 'recruits is apparently slow at the local depot; 'For the week end ing Thursday', October 7, 22 men made £p plication, but of these only 15 were suc cessful; this shows a rejection, of over 33 1-3 per cent. There are 150 in the local camp, a few of these are suffering from sickness following vacination, and one or two have colds, but apart from this, the men are in the best of health and spirits, and all are taking a deep interest in their work. . No recruits were sent to Liverpool during the week, but it is 'probable that a detachment , will be sent along shortly.

Archbishop Kelly s Visit to Lithgow [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 9 October 1915

Archbishop Kelly s Visit to lithgow During his visit here the archbishop has had an exceedingly busy time. He has visited many parts of the district, confirma tion services have been held, besides the usual services, with th« result that the Roman Catholic section of the community have been brought closely in touch with the head of the church in Australia. Stirring sermons were preached oa each occasion, and on Thursday night the sermon preached by the archbishop, though short, was spec ially powerful. The congregation were shown that it was their duty to God as well as to man, to set a good example to thenr children. The proper training of her child was a motker's firest and moat important work. During the course of his remakrs, his Lordship said: 'The separation of child ren from their mothers is frequently re sponsible for their, undoing. Never was .our Lord parted from his motther — never were they separated. We read of Him being lost in the temple for three days. Mary and Josep...

Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 9 October 1915

Correspondence. [We do not hold ourselves responsible for opinions expressed by our correspondents.] Sunday Concerts. (To the Editor.) Sir,— I wish to express the appreciation of the efforts of the Town Band and others to cater for the wants of the people of Lithgow in giving us the splendid Sunday night concerts .we have been having lately. There are crowds of people who do not go to church — In fact, have no . time for the 'Wowser' element and no time for 'psalm- singers' and long-faced puritans. It is to these concerts that these concerts especially appeal. They are. just the thing. A bit of good vocal mus*c .and splendid band selec tions are just the thing to make a person forget his sordid surroundings, forget his troubles and trials, and enables him to finish ? his Sunday in a nice, enjoyable manner. He can take his wife and children there, for nothing takes place, that will offend. They are real good wholesome efforts to cater for something that has been wanted for years in o...

MILITARY WEDDING. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 9 October 1915

MILITARY WEDDING. A quiet military wedding was celebrated on September 16 at St. Pau'ls Redfern, by Rev. Archdeacon Boyce, when Lena, third daughter of Mrs. Martin Potter, of Lithgow, was married to Sergeant J. H. Lear of the Army Medical Corps, Melbourne, who is leav- ing for the front in a few weeks. In the unavoidable absence of the bride's father, she was given away by her brother-in-law, Mr. T. Neems. The bride was dressed in a cream cloth costume, with a large picture hat to match, and was attended by her sis- ter, Miss Minnie Potter, whilst Mr. Norman Hughes was best man. A reception was af- terwards held at Baumann's, and later in the evening Sergeant and Mrs. Lear left for Cronulla and Wollongong, after an enthus- iastic send-off at the Central Railway Sta- tion.

Jenolan Caves. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 9 October 1915

Jenolan Caves. The traffic to the Jenolan Caves is well maintained, and large numbers of visitors come and go daily. There has been, how- ever, a falling off in the number of oversea visitors. To cope with the extra demand for accommodation at the Caves' House, the Government Tourists' Bureau has arranged for extensive additions, with the result that some 60 rooms are being added, building operations now being in progress. The necessity of widening the road that descends to the caves is considered urgent. The motor traffic is heavy, and there is hardly room for two cars going in opposite directions. If the widening cannot be car- ried out at present, it is suggested that the road should be widened at the bends, and recesses cut in the banks sufficient to enable a car to run in, to allow another to pass. Another suggestion to minimise the possi- bilies of accidents is to erect a gate at the five-mile peg, and control the traffic allow- ing certain hours for the road to be open to the...

Hazelgrove. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 9 October 1915

Hazelgrove. (From our own correspondent.) . I notice the council is effecting much needed repairs to portions of the Oberon-Tarana road. A return of wintry weather has been ex perienced here during the last two days, cold winds and occasional showers of sleet and snow falling. A great deal of sickness is in our midst at present. Members of Mr. William Evans's family are suffering from that dreaded malady, scarletina. We hope every precau tion will be taken to check its spread in our little centre. Mr. C. Jensen met with a slight accident on Wednesday. Whilst driving one of the council's employee's drays, the wheel ran over his foot, crushing one of his toes. His escape from a badly crushed or broken foot is marvellous. Several of the horses that have been in the Canowindra district during the last two months have been brought back to-day in the pink of condition. The owners, who have been out west state the country is magnlficant regarding grass and crops. Golden Horse Shoe gold min...

MONDAY, 8.30 A.M. Some Reflections on a Boiling Copper. 'The copper's boiling' — this is the com mon phrase of early Monday, the housewife's I call to the weekly task. Let us follow it with a question that is not so simple as it sounds : ??What is it boiling for?' Most people would answer, 'Why, to boil the dirt out of the clothes, of course.' Quite so, but for health's sake something more than dirt has to be done away with in the household washing, namely, the seeds of infectious disease. Infection may be communicated to a whole city (and beyond it) from one single patient, of which the smallpox epidemic is a case in ? point. It is due to tiny organisms, hardly visible through a microscope but intensely alive, thrown off in the course of the disease. These float in the air or dust and drift to clothes and house linen as naturally as steel draws to a magnet; we call them ' Germs,' or seeds of disease, because jast as an ordinary seed grows to a plant, so a disease germ on a human bo...
