The Thugs' Revenge. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 7 May 1902
The Thugs' Revenge. When I was at Eton, the "cook of the school" was Jack Melcham, a sixth-form boy. He was tho ideal hero of everyone, for there wasn't an atom of " bully " about him. Yet who, to look at him, would have credited him with all those pugilistic victories and "deeds of noble daring," with the recital of which I, a mere youngster, was, on my arrival, entertained by my companions ? Tall, his clean-cut figure was singularly slight. It was only when tested that the muscle it possessed was discovered. When I began my first term, Jack Mel cham took me under his protect/on, adopt ing mo as his fag, and many were the kindnesses and services ho rendered me. My pleasure may, therefore, be con ceived when, seven years later, on going out to all uncle, who held a high civil ap pointment in India, nearly the first name I heard mentioned was Jack Melcham's. Two years previously ho had inherited a large fortune, and was in India for tiger and elephant shooting. He delighted in manly ...

TESTING THE MIND BY CLOCKWORK. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 7 May 1902
TESTING THE MIND BY CLOCKWORK. A wonderful machine to test the minds of human beings and to tell them what they are fitted for in life is one af the latest triumphs of scien-, tific research. The " new psychology' j as it may be called is a science of , yards and inches, of instruments ad- j justed with almost inconceivable nice- j ty, of apparatus the only purpose of which is to measure the intangible, to gauge the hitherto unknown. As scientists themselves are amazed at the daring character of these latest inventions and appliances in this line, the ordinary man, who may never have dreamed of putting a foot-rule to his thoughts, may well gasp at the paraphernalia which is to aid in fu ture in the study of the human brain. ****** A set of this very unique machin ery, which is really a "clock" has just been installed in the psychologi cal laboratory of the Pennslyvania University, .and it will register the exact time it will take one to name a letter colour, or sentence; to add, sub...

The Town in Darkness To have a town thrown into sudden dark ness at'a time when business is most brisk, is on occurrence whiob, wo venture to say, business m«n of the ordinary stamp would not relish with any degree of pleasure. At least the Bowral storekeepers did not on Saturday ni»ht, when, without a moment's warning, the street lamps and shop lamps began to fail at about 9 p.m. to tbe astonish ment and bewilderment of all. It would, no doubt,., have been interesting from an historical'point of view, although perhaps none too edifyiug, to have secured iu black and white a document containing, tbe thoughts " uttered and unexpressed " of bur worthy business men, as they watched with bated breath the extinguishing of the lightB, aud the damping for a while,, at least, of their hopes for a satisfactory night's takings; The army of counter-jumpers, having uo light to guide their footsteps, wandered aimlessly here and there, until | the advent of kerosene lamps and candles, which were a...
THE SHORT CUT. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 7 May 1902
THE SHORT GUT. -4 ' .TwoT Irishmen got a job to clean some lofty windows. Having no lad der that would reach the windows, they invented a plan of their own. "I" have it," says Mike. "Get a plank and put it through the window. Oi'll sit on the plank outside, and you sit on the plank inside." "All right," replied Pat. All Went well until Mike, at the outside, cried out: "Oi've let the window leather fall.'' "All right," cried Pat; "stop where you are, and Oi'll get it." Jumping oft the plank, away went Pat down, stairs, and, getting into the street, exclaimed : "Be jabers, Mike, you're here first ! Which way did you.come?" To Prepare Pickles. —Experience shows that cold vinegar alone can be used in preparing pickles ; in boiling, much of the strength is lost by evap oration, and the pickles are apt to. spoil. When you lay by .your pickles put a small piece of alum in each jar this will make , them firm and crisp.
