The Holiday. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 15 November 1904
The Holiday. YESTERDAY, unlike the corresponding day of 1903, waq quiet in town. SEmblant of a Sunday, the principal stores were closed, and in consequence of several pionic orga nisations the streets, in the forenoon, bore a aeserted appearance. A great number of the young folk journeyed to Williamsdale where picnic festivities were participated in and others sought their favourite fishing re sorts and indulged in their devoted pasttime. Among those choosing the latter mentioned method of spending the day was Mr. Davi son, the member for Hastings and McCleay, who incidentally paid Queanbeyan a visit for the express purpose of testing our streams for trout. As in past years Queanbeyau is still backward anent organising public sports on holidays; in fact, in this respect, she really shows retrogression, and an answer to the question regarding this apathy would be a stumbling blook to even the most devoted sportite in the community. From our ex changes from the surrounding towns we se...

The Destruction of Rabbits. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 15 November 1904
The Destruction of Rabbits. An important decision was given on Thur e day by the full court in an appeal under the Pastures Protection Act. A pastoralist named Watson, residing near Young, was summoned by the rabbit inspector for the district on a charge framed upon the 49th section of the Act of neglecting to fully and continually perform his duty for the sap. pression and destruction of rabbits upon his run. The inspector gave evidence that the local board had expressed dissatisfaction with defendant's work, and, though the latter gave evidence that he had done every. thing possible, the magistrate held h~is testimony could be taken only in mitiga tion of the punishment, and that the board having qxpressed dissatisfaction he had no option but to inflict a penalty. Watson appealed against this finding, and the full court set it aside, being of opinion that the duty of the magistrate was to hear the evi dence on both sides, and ascertain whether the board was justified in its conclu...
ATTEMPTED OUTRAGE AT SUTTON. The Suspect Captured. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 15 November 1904
.ATT'EMP'TED OUTRAGE AT SUTTON. The Suspect Captured. IxrronATorro reached Queanbeyan on Satur. day evening to the effect that a man that day answering the descriptions of the man wanted in connection with the alleged attempted out rage on the little girl Rosella Cartwright, at Sutton, on Friday week last, had been cap. tured near Yass. From the Yass Tribune of Yesterday we extract the following:-" In connection with the alleged Sutton attempted outrage an arrest has already been made, and in a highly sensational way, all the honors going to Constable Gibson, Weejasper. As it happened Constable Gibson was in Yass on Friday last, actually about to start for his holidays, and called at the post office and got his mail matter which, under ordinary circumstances would have reached Weejasper the next day-after he had gone. Amongst his letters was one from his superior officer covering particulars and description of the " wanted "man in connection with this child outrage. Remarking to Sub...
THE JOYFULNESS OF FOLLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 15 November 1904
THIS JOYFULNESS OF FOLLY. WEAT a pleasant thing is folly I Only those who know very little, or (better still) nothing at all appear entirely happy. For, whereas a fool sin cerely believes that he knows everything, a wise man is by constant proofs reminded that he knows very little. But stay I There is some thing wrong here. This philosophy won't do. Is ignorance, after all, really happiness : True a very old proverb assures us that " 'tie folly to be wise," but, like most proverbs, we suspect that this one must not be taken too literally. A certain miser when young buried a hoard of gold in a secret place, Intending to dig It up for use when he. grew old ; but his miserly spirit prevented him from ever believing that he was suffioiently old to need it, though he lived to a great age. Asa matter of fact, the miser was observed burying his gold by a man who dog it up and made off with it the very next day ; but the miser never knew this. Here, now, was a case of ignorance being bliss....
The Rabbit Pest. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 15 November 1904
The Rabbit Pest. FrtE landowners appeared before the Gun. dagai Pastures Protection Board last Thurs. day as the rAsult of a complaint by 'the inspector. They had not taken satisfactory measures to destroy rabbits on their holdings The statements made seemed to show that the methods of treating rabbits must be varied according to the season. Just now, fumigation, digging out burrows, and wire netting holdings is said to be the best means of coping with the pest. Whilst grass is plentiful rabbits will not take poisoned baits.. The inspector stated that a reduction of the pest had taken place throughout the district during the past year, but that land. owners were too spasmodic in their efforts to extirpate the pest. M'KCi'iney Brothers of Nangus Station, stated in regard to the complaint about the large reserve held by them, that famigation succeed9d where poisoning failed. They were afraid to lay poiton o the travellidg' atobk :,eos~ve belch by them, because of the loss of travellin...
BYWONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 15 November 1904
BYWONG. M-?ao.--Mr Shepherd has just completed erecting an oil engine for his battery. Mr Hunter went out to-day to supervise the starting and had it shortly in full working order driving a three head stamper. Mr Shepherd had a splendid lot of stone on hand and expects it to yield a good return. We wish him success as the engine and battery have cost him a good sum of money. Mr Whitfield is now bagging another lot of stone from the old Cartwright.Robins claim and anticipates a fair return, whilst Mr. Seymour at Doughboy Hill is working his claim and encouraging reports are circulatel as to the stone raised from his shaft.
CHAPTER XXV. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 15 November 1904
CHAPTER XXV. It was the last night before Jack left for the Cape. He had come rathur early to Lady Gosport's house, in order to see Mabel alone for a few minute before starting off for dinner,and be was waiting in Lady Gosport's pretty drawing-toom for her. She could not help thinking of the interview he had had with Mrs. Ponsonby two days before; be hadn't seen Mabel, since, and he wondered if he ought to say anything about her or not. To confess his fault, of course, never car-n into his bead, but to say something in a general sort of ay ; then he decided rather bitterly that he would say nething-what did it: matter to Mabel ? She was the very last person to care, the very last person to be jealons of anything that be did I While hle was thus.thinking, Mabel came in. How fair. she was growing I The dress she wore suited her to perfection. It seemed to Jack that there was a dignity about her that he had never noticed before--the. fact was he Sas .unconsciously comparing her to Mrs....
The Wheat Crops. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 15 November 1904
The VWheat Crops. RuronrT from many parts of the State do not give such flourishing aooounts of the prospects of the coming harvest as was an ticipated a fortnight ago. Even locally matters are far from epoonraging. The hot weather of the past week has done a cousid erable amount of damage to the late crops owing to theirbeing so sappy, in consequence of their entire growth being due to the re cent rains. Following this spell of wet weather it is at once evident that much cool weather was required, ap the subsoil has not received a thorough soaking for years, and the mere superficial moisture was easily soaked up. Down Riverina way, as well as in the Western districts, two of the principal wheat producing centres of the State, the crops were very forward prior to the late rains, and must have withstood the early summer with much more tenacity than those of later districts. In this district the most of the crops are already out in ear, and so that even a fair yield be harvested it is...

" Fon the past thirteen years,' says Mr. J. Singleton, of John Street Singleton, N.S.W., 'I have been troubled with that terrible complaint, piles. This complaint being hereditary in my family, I was always dubious as to whether I could get rid of it, although this did not prevent me trying dozens of so-called oures, but from which I gained next to no relief. I' have often been forced to lay up with the terrible torture of the piles, and was in time forced to the conclusion that there was no cure for me. Hearing of the wonderful results effected by Zam-Buk in cases of piles, I de cided to give it a trial, and it is with grati tude I tell you that the first application gave me instant relief, and continuing the treat. ment, the pain and inflamation entirely dis appeared.

Here the conversation wes interrupted by Lady Gosport who rustled into the room, declaring that they would be late if they didn't stert at once.

Yesterday's Storm. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 18 November 1904
Yesterd ay's Storlm. WITH high north.westerly winds blowing at a territio rate hurling lurge clouds of dunt over the town, the weather conditions yesterday morning were the most unfavourable experiunoed in Qoeanbeyan for some time past. The ther. momoter registered eighty degrees, and it was evident that the muggy atmorphere could not for long maintain its own. By three o'clock day was almost changed into night; heavy thunder was hoard, and vivid chain lightning flashed, but the storm, which apparently fell in torrents in the direction of the Murrumbidgee, passed round, only a slight shower failing in town. Later in the afternoon a second storm arose gtving a few more points. By enquiry at the postofice this morning we learned that 24 points in all were registered. The heavy winds, how? ever, did not pass over without doing damage. In one or two places we hear of buildings being unroofed, whilst trees were uprooted and branches broken. At Cooma the damage was greater, several buildi...
