MASTER PASSION. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 22 April 1911

MASTER PASSION . . By TUDOR JENKS. Three rows back from the orchestra sat the violin-fancier. The action o£ the drama had no interest for. him; but whenever the musicians played he list ened Intently, his eyes unchangingly fixed upon the instrument in the hands of the first violinist. He knew every curve of the violin as he knew his own signature. He gazed upon its beauties as a lover upon the perfections of his beloved.. How many miles had lie travelled in seeking that object upon which he now was gazing! How many dusty Italian shops he had ransacked, how many old violins he had handled in vain!-and now before him was the veritable trea sure he ha'd sought. It was the del Gesu-the Guarnerius he had so longed to possess. . | Hardly had the curtain rung its fall upon the stage, when he made his way through the fast-ebbing current of spec tators, unconscious of all their rude jostling, and of his own, and addressed the'musician, who was placing the violin in its box and tucldn'g it da...

Canowindra Races. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 22 April 1911

Canowindra Races. The above meeting took place on Thursday under ideal weather con ditions, but the attendance was not up to expectations, being between 400 and 500, fully two-thirds of whom were Cowra residents, the local support being veiy meagre. The fields wore small arid the running in some instances oxtremely questionable in the opinion of most people, but this is a matter in which the spipendiary steward is sole arbiter, con sequently if tne opinions expressed are well grounded that official alone is re sponsible for a breach of duty. The various officials wero at their respective posts and did their utmost to maka matters run smoothly. Mr. Peter Kenny, ns secrotary, is just the man for the position, as evidenced by his un tiring energy, careful attention to details, and obliging disposition. Should ho be prevailed upon to retain office the club ehould soon assume its old time status. Subjoined is the rosult of tho running : Opening Handicap of 10 sovs; 0 furlongs. Silent Kin...

GREAT BATTLESHIP. | H.M.S THUNDERER. HER DESTRUCTIVE POWER. To-day tho battleship Thunderer will be launched at Canning Town (wrote the "Dally Telegraph's naval corres pondent on February 1). tondon, after a long divorce, will thus be wedded once more to the British Fleet, on which, In the last resort, her great ness and security depend. In days gone by hundreds o£ notable vessels of war were built on. the Thames, but many causes--the in creasing dimensions of ships, the con centration of thfe iron and steel in dustries elsewhere, the high wages paid to metropolitan workers, the standard of property assessments, and ! burdensome rates -- seemed destined to change permanently the history of the river. It was confidently believed a year or so ago that never again would an armored leviathan of the Fleet rear its walls within a tram journey of a few pence from the city. This page in London's history was thought to be definitely and finally closed. Such was the opinion of the man In the ...

Second Day-Tuesday. ?Ideal veatber conditions prevailedj and as a result the attendance was again good, but not equal to that of the first day. The officials, with the exception of Mr. J. J. Anderson, clerk of the scales, who was unwell (and for whom Mr. R. VV. McLean acted) were again at their respective posts and worked like a well legnlated piece of machinery. Noth ing of an untoward nature intervened to mar the pleasure of the meeting. Every event was well contested the finishes in most instances boiug very, close and intensely exciting. Taken all round the meeting (show meetings of course excepted) was one of the best attended, most harmonious disputes being few and far between and most successful financially yet conducted at this season of the year.

"The glory of our land," he writes, "has always been that its highest power is public opinion.

Mr. George L Sutton, State Wheat Experimentalist, upon whose very worthy shuuMers the mantle of the late much lamented Mr. W.

The oft'or was a tempting one and Mr. Sutton would be more than human if he had spurned it.

Subsequently. Dupuy joined an amateur dramatic club, of which his fiancee was not a, member. This caused a little difficulty, and then there was a quarrel about a dance. The "tiff" was taken advant age of by defendant to escape from the engagement.

GERMANY IN (910. HAMBURG AND HAGENBECK. (By Sir H. H. Johnston in th© "West minster Gazette"). . t Only that the comparison Is top hackneyed, one might call' Hamburg the Venice of the North. It Is a city most ! inspiring to the painter, especially in | Its older portion's. The broad and the j narrow canals, or "fletlis"-pronounced j ilate-with their arched bridges and im mensely tall, steep-roofed houses, their vistas of fretted church spires,-and fore grounds of tall-masted barge's (gaily painted, and with sails of russet-red); should have inspired many a painter, past and present, but apparently have not done so. Then there is the plea sure harbor of the Alster, with its pear ly distances at twilight, and fantastic, many-colored lights; and In the sunlit daytime its flocks of stately swans. The swans of Hamburg are quite a feature of the place. They are a very old insti tution, dating back in the civic records to the eleventh century, probably before the Alster was the broad sheet...
