A Page of Sport. Swimming. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 27 March 1909

I A Page of 5port. [By Amatkur.] Swimming. Season 1908-9 is drawing to a close and next Saturday will probably see the last of the competi tions in this branch of sport. The season has been & memorable one from an administrative standpoint, as records have been established in the govern ment of the pastime. The number of spectators at several of the carnivals has by far excelled pre vious attendences, and the^development of sprint swimmers has far exceeded the demand. The establishment of an Australian Swimming Union, with Mr. Jas. Taylor as President, and Mr. W. W. Hill as Hon. Secretary, has brought the various State Associations into line, and in future all visits of an International a.spect will be controlled by this body, the Executive of which consists of the two gentlemen mentioned above. Re-instatement of swimmers who have forfeited their amateur status, and matters of dispute between Associa tions and matter of an Australian nature, is also in the hands of this orga...

The Home Page. Chat and Information. MOTHERS THAT ARE TOO BUSY. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 27 March 1909

The Home Page. Chat and Information. By ' Jeuncviv.' MOTHERS THAT ARE TOO BUSY. Some writer has recently brought an ac cusation against busy mothers, to the effect that many of them are so occupied in doing their household work that they have no time to spare to listen to their children. ' Mother is too busy to take notice of any thing I do,' said a small boy. 'She ?doesn't care where I play as long as I don't muddy the kitchen floor or make a noise and wake the baby.' The bus}' mother is perhaps too apt to tell her child she has no time for nonsense, and so the boy slips away to his friends, anci ijy uegiccs units ciwciy cnunciy nuiii his home ties. No confidences are shared with his mother, who would think it a waste of time to pause in her work and lis ten to her boy's chatter of football or any one of his own absorbing interests. It is the same with her girls. Gradually they learn to think that mother must not be 'bothered' with their affairs, and as long as the children are wel...

In the Shadow of the Cross. The Spiritual Side of Everyday Life Discussed. The Art of Forgetting [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 27 March 1909

In the Shadow of the Cross. The Spiritual Side of Everyday Life Discussed. The Art of Forgetting ' ' 77ie essential of a nation is that all the indi viduals should have many things in common, and also that all should have forgotten much.'1'' — M. RENAN. 'Remember! Forget! They are two of the most important words in the English language,' said a clergyman in his sermon the other day ; ' ' but it sometimes happens that we get mixed up between the two, and remember the things which had far better be forgotten, and forget those which it is really important that we should remember. That's why people get on so badly together.' Have you ever noticed how badly the members of a family sometimes get on together? A family is rather like a nation in some ways. They've got those words—' # remember ! forget! ' r —out of their right places. They've been lumber ing up their memories with the things which di vide them from the others, and forgetting all those that would have drawn them together. All...

Home that isynt Home. Where the mistress doesn't do her share towards making things go smoothly. Alfred Smith is off to Canada next week,' remarked Mrs. Jones. ' What !' exclaimed her friend. ' Do you mean that he is throwing up his prac tice?' Unfortunately his practice is so small that it scarcely counts. He has lost several important lawsuits lately, and his clients are consequently losing all faith in him as a lawyer.' ' ' I have no patience with men who are failures ! rapped out Mrs. Bailey, secure in the comfortable knowledge that her hus band, a thriving doctor, worked on an average eighteen hours out of twenty-four, and was so able to provide her with all the luxuries her extravagant tastes demanded. Now, if Mrs. Jones had spoken her thoughts at that moment, she would have remarked that ' ' people who live in glass houses should not throw stones.' For Mrs. Bailey was, in her estimation, as great a failure as the Mr. Smith in ques tion. True, her profession was merely the Tm....

LAWSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 27 March 1909

::3 h : [From our Own Correspondent.] The Shire Council have arrangad for a telephone to be connected with their office, and men are now busy putting up the poles. Unfortunately the telegraph engineer in charge has seen it necessary to cut down one of the very fine pines in the Avenue. It seems a pity that the beauty of a place should be destroyed for the sake of com mercial gain. The Avenue of Pines is one of the features of Lawson, having taken a year to grow, and should be protected. And surely the telephone pole could have been placed so as to save the demolition of one of the finest trees. A cricket match was played last Saturday between a team from the Blue Mountain Shire Council and the Iyawson Cricket Club, the former winning b}^ 35 runs. For the winners D. Joines scored 80 and Duff 25, and for the losers A. Turner 31, S. Thomas 18, and J. Davies 20. Another match has been arranged for to-day. The new rifle range is to be opened on Saturday, April 24, and invitations have be...

It is false economy to starve a horse as he will be certain to get out of condition sooner or later, and then their storing capacit3^ for feed becomes enormous. Some little time ago Constable Lisle (who by the way, is the soul of politeness) paid us an unexpected Sunday call, and the result was that quite a number of our cattle owners were invited to attend an ' ' At Home ' ' in the Katoomba ' ' Palace of Justice,' where the matter of ? straying cattle was vigorous^ discussed, and in consequence of the discussion the revenue had a very bouyant feeling.

We have every prospect of a good time at Easter ; plenty of visitors, and all kinds of private picnics and outings. If the present weather lasts, the Iyookotit will be well patronised, and the glorious view clear and good.

Elsie Thorncroft's Concert. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 27 March 1909

Elsie Thorncroft's Concert. Quite a large audience greeted Miss Thorn croft on Wednesday evening, but not nearly so large as her entertainment deserved, for she had the assist ance of Mr. Krnest Hoskings, who is a whole host in himself, and also that very clever comedian, Mr. R. E. Orchard, from the Comic Opera Com pany, and such an opportunity may never occur again in this town. However, those who went were well repaid, and will not be likely to forget what they saw for some time to come. The entertainment opened with an overture on the piano by Miss Mabel lyong, performed entirely with the left hand. In this Miss L.ong gave a really brilliant exhibition of her powers of execu tion, and her piece was deservedly applauded. Miss Doris Milligan followed with a prologue, which gave evidence of bright promise for some thing fine in the future. Miss M. James' solo was sung with that feeling and expression which we are accustomed to hear from this lady. Then followed a few moments with Mr...
