Indignation Meeting at Lawson. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 6 November 1909

Indignation Meeting at Lawson. An Indignation meeting was convened by the L/awson Progress Association re the motion of the Blue Mountains Shire Council in removing trees in San Jose Avenue, L/awson, October 28th, and there was a good attendance. Mr. Staples addressed the meeting : 'The Pro gress Association exists for the purpose of safe guarding the interests of L/awson in every way, and when it was announced, or became known, that it was the intention of the Council to 'remove certain trees in the Avenue, I had a consultation with Mr. L/Owden, and we deemed the matter of sumcient importance 10 can a meeting 01 trie rate payers.

Congregational Church Concert. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 6 November 1909

Congregational Church Concert. One of the most enjoyable concerts held for some time was that at the above church on Wednesday evening. There was not even standing* room at 8.30, which is a pretty sure indication liow popular the Rev. Mr. Grant has made these monthly concerts. Of course, there is an abundance of good local talent to draw upon, but even this does not ensure a successful concert, as it is difficult to get vocalists together except on special occasions, and this hap pened to be one of the occasions. A pro gramme of twenty items, with a dozen en cores takes a time to get through with, and no one grumbled because the hands of the clock were near the eleventh hour. Every item was enjoyable, and the aud ience showed their appreciation by hearty applause.. Mr. Timbrel! was the accom panist for the evening, and deserved the thanks of the audience, which he received. Mr. Cecil Chandler opened the concert with an overture on the piano which he played in his usual good style. M...

The entries for the five events in the Katoomba Lawn Tennis Tournament to be held on the 13th and 15th of this month constitute a record. L,ast year there were 107 entries, this year there are 125, which goes to prove that the Tournament is gain ing favor. The handicaps have already been allotted and the official programmes will be ready early next week. Those who are interested in the Tournament are in vited to apply at the School of Arts for a copy or the programme, winch the Com mittee are preparing for free distribution. This tennis fixture is certainly one of the principal events of the year on the Moun tains, and it is expected that with good weather this fifth annual tournament will eclipse all previous successes.

THE HOME PAGE Families who Drift Apart. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 6 November 1909

'PS ;« By Myona. Families who Drift Apart. 'I'm quite independent of my family now. I am going- to be married.' said an -engaged girl to me last week. She had never 'got on' well at home. It was rather a disunited household. There was a large family of them, and as the brothers and sisters grew up they had drifted apart. All sorts of petty Jealousies aud discords had crept in to spoil the harmony of the home. J.L J.O cl OclU SLUiy, llUJa icUC Ul iCUUS 111 families, of paltry mischief-makings, . and petty tittle-tattle. These are the little things which divide families against them selves. Real sorrows and big tragedies ?often bring the members of the family close together, heart to heart. But the mean 'she said this,' ' he did that,' these little storms, scandal-moiigerings, and trag edies in teapots bring about the bitterness of heart and the feuds in families which .are never forgotten or forgiven. But I must return to the bride-to-be, who thought she was 'independent' of her fami...

A Bachelor Says That [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 6 November 1909

A Bachelor Says That When a girl gets her first proposal she has already told how she had a hundred. A woman can get a heap of happiness without thinking how happy she could be if she were appreciated. After eating onions a girl should imme diately sit down and peruse some work of fiction that is calculated to take her breath. awa3'., Any woman can take a hint -if disguised as a 'beauty hint.' I^ove is blind, but after marriage a man is apt to take an occasional eye-opener. A wise man has no secrets from his wife —because he hasn't any wife.

Are Women More Stupid than Men. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 6 November 1909

Are Women More Stupid than Men. A curious woman asks us this, sa3'S an American journal : ' 'Why is it that the lat est two housekeeping devices, the vacuum cleaner and the fireless cooker, so essential ly women's things, should have been in vented by men? Are women so much more stupid than men?' This woman might have cited, too, the sewing machine; the baby-carriage ; the rotary egg-beater ; the ice-cream freezer, the 'foods' for infants, — all invented by men ! It is a queer fact, for these things belong essential ly to the province of women. But it is not because women 'are so much more stupid than men' ;a goodly part of the reason is to be found in a certain lack of seriousness among women as to the poss ibilities of their place in life. Dull women go on getting ever-lastingly tired over the duties of the domesic day ; and of the bright women some of them hate the whole business, and find their interests in pleas ures or in public service, and others take things as they find the...
