THE WORLD'S BIGGEST TUNNEL. HOW IT IS BEING BORED. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 7 May 1902

THE WORLD'S BIGGEST TUNNEL. -* HOW IT IS BEING BORED. Brig, an Alpine village, lias long been the terminus of the Jura-Sim plon railway. Only 12A miles away lies Italy, but those are 12i miles of' a. towering, tumbling mass of moun tain rock. For many years people wondered how to get rid of this 124 miles. of mountain, so as to extend . the railway, and at last it was decid ed to cut through it and make a tun nel, to be known as the Simplon tun-: nel. The work was begun in Novem ber 1898, and shall be finished on May 14, 1904. The contractors are liable to a penalty of £200 for every day of delay or entitled to a bonus of sim ilar amount for each day ahead of time. The tunnel for the line of rail-, way is to be 12£ miles long, and par allel with it, at a distance of 18Ayds. will be a smaller one for ventilation, which may subsequently be converted into a return line. The tunnel is being cut by means of drills, operating from both ends, which bore a yard and a half every lii minutes....

THROUGH NIAGARA FALLS IN A BARREL. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 7 May 1902

THROUGH NIAGARA FALLS IN A BARREL. A * Mrs, Anna Edson Taylor has won world wide notoriety by plunging over Niagara Falls in a barrel and reaching land alive. Poverty compel led Mrs. Taylor, a widow, to try this experiment. She designed the barrel herself, and was simply rolled over the falls on her mad journey. She was in a re clining position, as it were, with a ■ pillow under hfer- head and her arms in straps, air having been supplied through a tube. The sensations she felt are best described in her own words : " Tlic barrel floated smoothly on for an age, it .seemed to me, and then suddenly it plunged down over the first drop about 15ft. high. I struck 011 the rocks and the bar rel rolled over and over. After this it seemed to me as though I went round a curve and I rolled over again and hung against a rock. It was just as if I could feel myself hanging oh the edge of a sheer precipice and shut ting my eyes before the drop into the abyss. The next thing I knew I was in the catar...

BIRD'S WITH BIG APPETITES. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 7 May 1902

BIRD'S WITH BIG APPETITES. —-♦— A common barn owl has been known | •to swallow seven mice straight oft the reel, while a pair of the same birds have been observed to take as many as 24 mice to their nest of young ones during a. single night. If a man ate as much in proportion he would con sume three sheep in a day. A kestrel can get through 36 mice in a day and the equivalent in small birds and in sects, while from the crop of a single pheasant have keen taken as many as 1,225 "leather jackets"—the dirty white grub of the daddy-long-legs. Eight hundred grains of corn is by no means an unusual allowance for a wood-pigeon's meal, and if a man had a corresponding appetite he would soon clear out a green-grocer's shop Young fly-catchers dine about .500 times a day, and blackbirds about 120 times. But the most voracious of all birds is probably the robin, which consumes two and a half times its own weight of food in a single day. "Only the appetite of a bird," is an almost proverbial exp...

KING SOLOMON'S WATER SYSTEM. STILL IN USE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 7 May 1902

KINC SOLOMON'S WATER SYSTEM. STILL IN USE. —♦— King Solomon's pools, the ancient aqueducts and feservoirs of Jerusalem and the most remarkable remains of antiquity, after centuries of disuse have just been brought again into ser vice, and now supply the city with a steady flow of clear, pure water. These historic aqueducts are remark able for the labor and expense em ployed in their construction and for their durability. They were planned in Bible times by Solomon, and men tioned in his Song "I have built me pools of water, to water therewith the wood that bringeth forth trees." They are situated about two miles south-west of Bethlehem and nine miles from Jerusalem. Their restoration was' brought about by recent droughts, which led to so much distress that Mohammed Djevad Pasha, the new Governor of Jerusa lem, a man of determined will and much energy, secured the Sultan's consent to the laying of a pipe con necting the wells with the city. The aggregate surface of these pools which ...

The Association Hall. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 7 May 1902

The Association Hall. Dear Sir,—It was with deep regret I saw id the " Daily Telegraph " that Mr. H. E. Jones had.decided to close tiie Young Men's Hall at Bowral. I am sure the youug men of Bowral will feel ifc very keenly, viz., the loss of attending the ball. And the gocd advice their President was always ready to give thera one and all, willing to listen to their Cruubles, and ready to give them a word in season when required, and no doubt saved mauy a young man from going to the bad. I know for a fact, the good, advice.ho gave my son, and,ho could, not say enough in the praise of the' President, and,no doubt, to many others'lie has set such an example for them to copy, as many will never forget the influence lie exercised over their lives for good, -and some that might have turned out wild and reckless, .have boon kept in check for fear of offending their beloved President,. If such an,'institution could be carried, out in every country town, wo should, soon get. rid of the pus...

HANDWRITING. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 7 May 1902

HANDWRITING. It is an exploded idea that character may be read from handwriting. Brave men may perpetuate a timid scrawl, gene rous and high-minded men may write a mean hand, and cowards produce a bold . ' and flowing script. Porson, the great Greek scholar, among the untidiest of all I students, wrote neatly and elegantly. Cromwell's writing, though large, is shaky. Shakespeare's signature is not particularly clear. Napoleon Bonaparte wrote illegibly, it is said purposely, to hide his bad spelling. The handwriting of the tortuous-minded Charles 1. is as clear and striking as that of Thomas Carlyle is crabbed and indistinct. On the other i hand, Queen Elizabeth's handwriting is magnificent. Edgar Allen Poe wrote beautifully, and with scarcely an erasure, whereas the ^manuscripts of Charles Dickens, to be seen at the Foster collec tion at South Kensington are rugged and full of alterations and emendations. Many men write large or small, in characters boldly or weakly formed, accordin...

PUNCTUATION PUZZLE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 7 May 1902

PUNCTUATION PUZZLE. The following article very forcibly illus-' trates the necessity of proper punctuation. It can be read in two ways, describing a very bad man or a very good man, the result depending upon the punctuation : " He is an old and experienced man in vice and wickedness he is never found in opposing the works of iniquity he takes delight in the downfall-of his neighbours he is always ready to assist in destroying the peace of society he takes no pleasure in serving the Lord he is uncommonly diligent in sowing discord among his friends and acquaintances he takes no pride in labouring to promote the cause of Christianity he has not been negligent in endeavouring to stigmatise all public teachers he makes no effort to subdue his evil passions he strives hard to build up Satan's kingdom he lends no aid to the support of the gospel among the heathen he contributes largely to the devil he will never go to heaven he must go where he, will receive the just recompense ant) rewar...

Simultaneous Mission in Bo\yral. The Eev. M. Maddern (Methodist) con ducted the second united prayer meeting in tbePresbyierinnCliurch, Bowral, ou Monday evening. There was a very good attend ance. At the close of the prayer meeting, the general committee met. The chairman apologised for the absence of the Revs. E. S. Wilkinson (Church of Eugland) and A. W. Parton (Methodist.) The secretary hud -written to the central committee in Sydney for information con cerning the Mission, but no reply was yet to Tiarid, probably due to the fact, ns the chair man said, that Bowral had decided rather late to hold the Mission. . . - The chairman said that as far as it could be done, the printing for local requirements would be executed at the local offices. No sample hymn book had yet been re ceived from Sydney. The sheet of hymns used at the Melbourne Mission was urged upon the committee by Mr. B. Short, who had attended some of meetings there.

A REPENTANT SINNER. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 7 May 1902

A REPENTANT SINNER. It was a biting cold day in January when two teams, each laden with wood might be seen floundering through the snow and slowly nearing each other. Their drivers were both curled up be neath their rugs, endeavouring to keep their benumbed feet and fingers warm, and each glad to allow his horse to pick their own way, without need of hands upon the reins. They were both farmers, and had been obliged to get wood upon this cold day to keep their families from actually freezing. In coming by a gro cery half-a-mile back, one, James Leary, had bought something to keep him com pany upon his weary way, and now, covered up from the cold, was quietly en joying the contents of his little jug. The other, .John Woods, had not as yet, passed the grocery. The cold seemed growing still more in tense, which was not tending to improve the tempers of either of the two men, when suddenly both waggons stopped with a jerk, and the horses begun plung ing about in the snow. Both drivers p...

Football. .MOSS VALE V. MITTAGONG'. The first match of the season was played off at Mittagong on Saturday last, between the above teams. Many incon sistencies, consequent on the lack of form of the players, were noticeable during the progress of the game. In the first half Mittagong had complete charge of the reins, scoring 12 points to nil. Tries were obtained by Jim Nicholls, H. Firth, and T. Morris, while Cocks converted a penalty kick into a goal. In the second half the visitors shook things up a trifle, Maroney and Casey each lodging the ball behind the scoring line, but the kick for goal failed in both cases. Hill and. Riley increased the Mittagong score to 18. points in this half. At the call of time the figures stood at 18 to 6 in favor of the home team. The referee was Mr. W. Parkinson.

HE'D RATHER WALK. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 7 May 1902

HE'D RATHER WALK. I The old man Smith, of Richfield, is a self-sufficient sort of old fellow, and prides himself upon his riding abilities. yOne . day he espied his young hopeful leading | a colt to water rather gingerly, and re | marked, " Why on earth don't you ride ! that beast?"—I'm 'fraid to; 'fraid he'll ' throw me." " Bring that hoss here," ! snapped the old man. The colt was urged ! up to a fence, and braced on one side by ! the boy while the old man climbed on to j the rails and stocked himself on to the colt's back. Then he was let go, and the old gentleman rode proudly off. Para lyzed by fear, the cold went slowly for | about twenty yards without a demonstra | tion, then like lightning his four legs bunched together, his back bowed like a viaduct arch, and the old man shot up in the air, turned seven separate and distinct somersaults, and lit on the small of his ; back in ths middle of the road with both legs twisted around his neck.; 'Hastening to him, the young hopeful ...
