Another old Resident no More. &nbsp; Mr. Edward John Copson an old and &nbsp; much refpected resident of the town &nbsp; succumbed on Saturday to biliary calculus, a complaint of four years standing, followed by peritonitis, the latter only preceding his death by about &nbsp; 36 hours.

The Bishop of London on "Life after Death;" The world of ideas moveB quickly nowadays. Wo remember being told when our minds wpre on enquiry I bent, that anything about the af ter I death stato could not bo definitely I known, further that it was' never, meant to be known,; and never.Would be known. Since that time, however, j much has been put before us, more or' less worthy of credence, that has somewhat shaken the foundations of-, tho'old dogmatic assertions, and. we . now, find in the London Daily Telegraph, January 30th, 1911, this outspoken opinion., of no less ,a theological export than'-the Bishop of London : There was no subject on: which Christians were so mistaken as that of death. Death was mistaken' for' the pain which sometimes precedes it. Being born iiitp-another 'world ' ( was probably like being born into this'. The supposed horror of death was;founded on nothing more" than a' deliision. Death -was an incident. that took place ..in a continuous life, and the idea t...
A Disappointed Judge. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 29 April 1911
A Disappointed Judge. Signor .Dattillo Itubbo, the judge of the Fine Arts section, at the Bathurst show in the - bourse of an interview with a representative of the " National Advocate, " was par ticularly rough on the, exhibits which he had before him.. . ? " I am- greatly disappointed with the .Fine Arts," said the- Signor.. " Bathurst is a specially attractive city. You have a lovely sunset, mag nificent hills and scenery, all of which specially appeal to the artist. But I am s.Oiry to say from the display of painting at the show, your have no true artists hei'd. Even in the-classes for professionals the work is of a yery ieferior .nature. In the amateur classes, there is 100 much ambition to try and paint subjects, when a true artist's1 .knowledge is indispensible. It is essential for a, strident to learn to drawl first and paint afterwards. The "display of the students, however, shows that they:caniidt draw, so they start^d'StCi' paint. Tne consequence is that their work is ver...
