THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Tumut Advocate and Farmers & Settlers' Adviser — 10 May 1904

THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE. ("Governess wanted, who will be able and willing to inflict sound corporal punishment on two unruly children, aged 11 and 13. State experience and salary required to Mrs —"Christian World.") Ye vinegar virgins, come hither, Whose temper has always been such That wooers have left you to wither, Nor ever felt tempted to touch; Forbidding, bespectacled, bony, The nightmares that nurseries dread, With hearts that are cruel and stony, And hands that are heavy, as lead; Ye spinsters of mustard and pepper.

Farm and Station. [Newspaper Article] — The Tumut Advocate and Farmers & Settlers' Adviser — 10 May 1904

Farm find Station' ; . . H. ' jr ' ' v It is currently reported that Kimo Estate are sending a' number of their stock to the coastal districts for the winter, owing to the prolonged dry season. A case of much interest to butchers oceupied the attention of the Full Court. An, application for a pro hibition was^ade by James 'Mac&ay, the question'whether the butohers of th» Stats were to be charged an in action fee of Sd each on skins of sheep and pigs that were slaughtered. The Chief Justice was of opinion that, shtiep and pigs did come within the I definition of cattle. The Act would j be rendered absurd if they held that it applied only to bovine cattle, and skep and pigs could be fired at with out bringing those who fired at them within the provision of the Act. It was said that the authorities were bound to charge 3d a skin, but his opinion was that that was the maxi mum amount only, and anything up toSd could be charged.

FAMOUS MANUSCRIPTS THE ROMANCE THEREOF. [Newspaper Article] — The Tumut Advocate and Farmers & Settlers' Adviser — 10 May 1904

FAMOUS MANUSCRIPTS THE ROMANCE THEREOF. "A.M." writes in the- London "Dally Mall," of 17th December:— A country which has supported for a generation a costly Commission to secure for the State printed copies of thousands of historic manuscripts Is not likely to let go the orginal copy of "Paradise Lost," and we may be sure that long be-fore the sale announced for next spring the Milton manuscript will rest In the national trea sure house, side by side with the seared and yellow copy of Magna Charta. That shrivelled parchment, the charter of English freedom, was saved, it is said, by the verest chance from the scissors of a merciless tailor. Struck by the great seals attached to a piece of paper the tailor was cutting up. Sir Robert Cotton ."topped the man and gave him fourpence for the document he would have des stroyed. It Is now in the British Museum, lined and mounted and in a glass case, the seal a shapeless mass of wax, and the characters quite Illegible. Fourpence will not buy...

DRINK AND GAMBLING A PAINTER'S VIEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Tumut Advocate and Farmers & Settlers' Adviser — 10 May 1904

DRINK AND GAMBLING A PAINTER'S VIEWS. Mr G. F. Watts, the painter, expresses himself strongly in the "Pall Mall Maga zine" on drink and gambling. He says: "I look across our English world and see clearly and distinctly the two vices which more than anything else are ob • structlng the wheels of progress—drink ing and gambling. They are apparent | to the least observant men. You can not take up a paper, or walk through the . streets of a city, without realising the awful ruin which these two evils are I working in the world. But if this is so j patent. If this is the general agreement ' ofv;niankind, why Is there no concentra tion of national energy on the subject? Think how great a revolution would be , wronght in English character and in , English health if legislation set itself sternly" to the task of preventing i drunkenness and gambling! Just those | two things." I Is it not possible for political parties, j Mr Watts asks, to sink their petty dif ferences and to combine to ligh...

CONSIDERATE. A little while ago a.sailor entered a well known bank in Liverpool. He : boisterously hailed the clerk at the paying-out counter* with— 41 What ehee'r, matey! How's your business doing, eh?-' The clerk, wbo is all things-to all men, re plied blandly that, business was not too brisk, but would doubtless Improve, and asked ihe tar what he could do for him. ■ After a little fumbling,, out came-a cheque from the man's packet—/ "Pay bearer L70,"' he read; then explained—; "That's the fruits of being a steady young . man." ' • First scanning the Cheque, the clerk made the usual inquiry— "How will you have it, sir?"

The Federal Capital. [Newspaper Article] — The Tumut Advocate and Farmers & Settlers' Adviser — 10 May 1904

The Federal Capital. The following letter, received by Sir William Lyne from one of the ; pioneers of Maaaro, will be read with interest in this district, and ia an unprejudiced opinion on the climate .. and the quality of the soil, and goes a long way towards confirming other reports current outside the enthusiastic small circle of Bombala supporters:— " My father, Mr. Reid, was the first man who occupied a station on the Monaro Plains, that was in 1828, and the middle of the run was where the town of Cooma now stands. We occupied stations comprising, the larger portion of lower Monaro, until the year 1840. That particular parti was then considered the very beat; portion of Monaro Plains. The dit- ; tance Irom the boundary of our country to Bombala was about 40 miles. It is fearfully cold country in ' the winter, but where we were wan much better tiian the Bombala.-. country. Bombala is subject to ex ceedingly cold, piercing winds. From my own knowledge I say that do pfc. soa in hi...

TUMUT FOOTBALL CLUB. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — The Tumut Advocate and Farmers & Settlers' Adviser — 10 May 1904

TUMUT FOOTBALL CLUB. -■ - (To the Editor.) Sir,—Kindly allow me space in your valuable paper to say a few words in reference to our football club, which, by-fche-way, appears to "be almost at a standstill in this town. A club has been formed I will, admit, but beyond that there is ^ a lack of energy amongst members and other supporters, and no enthusiasm is being infused into good old Rugby, and consequently the game is dying out fast. Now, I contend it behoves our young men und others interested in the welfare of the club, to rise up and throw some life atid interest into the glorious game, and endeavour to carry on Rugby the same as of yore, when the majority of townspeople and community watched with pleasure the whole-souled ex hibitions by " our boys " in this fine sport. There are three or four players assiduous in training, but apart from these, very seldom is prac tice indulged in by the rest of the team, and ere long they will have to make their appearance in the first match...

. j-wqax' --- THE) NJBLSON ST\ATUETTB. A NATION SWINDLED. The inner history of one of the greatest hoaxes of modern times has some to light. It concerns a silver statuette, aria the victims are the Royal United Ser vice Institution. The statuette was one of Nelson—* famous statuette, indeed, for had It no'., been presented to the great naval hero by no less a personage than George III? So it was said, at any rate, eighteen months ago. Now the truth is known—the whole ruthless truth. The historic relic of the early nineteenth century was modelled A little more than two years ago by a stu dent at an art school! With all the halo of the bogus renown, the statuette was originally offered for exhibition to the Institution. Gladly they received it, and with tender hands set It in an honored position in their museum. Naval commanders reverently gazed upon It; visitors lingered to admire its every point; patriots glowed with pride at the sight of it and af-the thought of the famous history....
