TOPICS. OF THE. WEEK. Winter came in with, a vengeance on Saturday last. He liad been lurking about as i£wo.tc]iing to make a. pounce upon ua. At last the crouch ing tiger made its spring, and it is to be. hoped that no fatal consequences may follow to-the sick or the constitutionally weak. As. a matter of fact many people of- weak constitution are carried off in a severe winter. On Saturday Last the sun looked out a little as if to, cheer us but clouds flew about as. if wishing to rob us of any little comfort we might havo had. They were not rain clouds at alL A keen cold, wes terly blew in a way that suggested a clean shave.. It was a trying day. # * * * Sunday came, and with it an abatement of ♦he wind, but a decided increase of the cold.. Up to the present, Sunday was the coldest day we have had' this season.

Original Poetry. THE ROSE WREATII. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 13 June 1885
(Briijinal THE HOSE WJIEATII. Had I ft wreath of roses, Jane, I'd give it unto thee, That o'er thy brow its leaves would fall In stately ma/es y; Methinkssome angel would arraugo That sweetly, blushing shrine, Arid mako tiiy smiles of iunocenco lteseruble theirs—divine. Perchance—if I could tell the thought, A now-horn ray would rest, Descending from thy brow abovo, To shelter in thy breast, : "Where in that loving, loved abodo - 'Twould faithfully repose, And bring h, charm around thy soul Far sweeter than the rose. Thy.maiden thoughts would ever find: The llowrots of tlio May As fresh as when I wreathe! thy brow With roses—pulled lo-,day.' Philip D. Lowjieh. Bowrn.1, June, 1885.
