THE HYGIENE OF DANCING. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
THE HYGIENE OF DANCING. T ? : ? ^ Those nations are invariably strong who dance the most, and this hot merely in ballrooms, but in the open, on the village greens, while the breezes fan their cheeks. - The value of outdoor games, where health and beauty are con cerned, is admitted by all. But in to games there is. infused a more solemn spirit than ' there is into movements timed to the polka or jig. Music stimulates as nothing else does or ever will do. Dance on your lawns ihen, as maidens did of old, and your pulses will beat as they never beat when in deadly earn est over your tennis or golf. The swing of the body to rhythm and melody has no rival for exciting youthful ecstasy. Ally this to sun shine and draughts of air from the moorlands and hills, and you will know a vigour never vouchsafed you before — a brightness of eye and clearness, of skin that will match with those enjoyed by the daughters of Erin itself. .
A CURTAIN HINT. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
A CURTAIN HINT. It is frequently a difficult matter to keep short curtains and case ment blinds 'an. equal length when being washed. The remedy for this is to measifre one curtain and, with a lead pencil and ruler, mark lines on the sheet over the ironing board for the top and bottom of the curtains. Then place the damp curtain on the board between these two lines, moving it as may be nec essary, but always keeping the edges exactly on the lines. Ironed thus, the result will be quite satisfactory. To keep curtains from blowing out of open windows, place lead weights on the corners and cover them with the same material as that of the curtains. Common - crash cloth makes excellent and economi cal casement blinds.

THE DANGER OF BUSH FIRE.

The Rock Station. Rumoured Subdivision. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
The Rock Station. Rumoured Subdivision. Notwithstanding the rumors which were from time to time circulated amongst those with whom the wish was father to the thought it appears now highly probable that the an nouncement of the private subdivision of The Rock station wul not long be delayed. Sometime ago it was known that arrangements were on the verge o£ completion for the sale of this valu able estate to a syndicate. Tha owner of the estate, however, did nob see the advantage of giving a syndi cate the opportunity of doing what he could do for himself. Consequently some credence may be placed in the report that Mr Mil lar is cutting up the estate himself. If this is true, as seems likely, it will be a distinct advantage to thosa ' who eventually will commence farm ing there Operating direct with the original owner, the land can be obtained at a cheaper rate than a syndicate could retail it, and no doubt Mr Millar could give easier terms than any syndicate. We wish the owner every s...
ASKING TOO MUCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
ASKING TOO MUCH. The country doctor had come to pre scribe for Lucy, the coloured cook's little daughter, who was suffering: from the unfashionable ailment known as 'chills.' The doctor opened his saddle-bacs and prepared several doses of the time honoured remedy, quinine in capsules. Lucy sat up in bed, watching tne proceeding's with great interest, as the doctor filled each tiny capsule and capped it. But when she heard the instructions, 'Give her one of these every two hours,' she wailed in ter ror : 'Is you gwine to mek me swaller dem little glass bottles, stoppers an' all?'
Public Opinion. THE BRIDGE OVER THE CREEK. [TO THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
Public Opinion. TUB BRIDGE . OYER THE CREEK. [To tuk Editor.] Sir, — May I ask through the medium of your valuable paper what waa the total cost expended on the bridge crossing the creek here in the township, and what was the money spent for ? Surely not for repairing and. making tramcable the bridge 1 Yet I notice that the Shire Council have posted the warning that tha bridge is unsafe for loads over 12 tons, a similar notice being put np before the .money was spent on it. Yet when a request is made by & representative body for an inspection to be made with a view to damming and conserving the water, and in such a manner that the embankment could be used to carry more than 12 tons, tlfb request had cold water thrown on it from the outset. Why, one cannot understand, for as your leading article pointed out, this mat ter will have to have some consider ation in the near future, as a water scheme is inevitable for a rising township like The Rock. Dbubtless the Engineer's repor...

* DISAPPOINTED MAN. / Mr. Halloran surveyed the insur ance agent with a dcrl: and — countenance. The fact that one eye was concealcd by a somewhat grimy bandage did not add to the attractive ness of his expression. 'Haven't you made up your mind yet to insure with us?' inquired the agent. 'You told me I might call again in a few days.' 'There was two of you at me to get an accident insurance policy,' said Mr. Halloran, breathing heavily. 'I towld you and him both you might call in again, and he come first, day be foor vist'herday, and I insured wid his company. 'That very night I met up wid Barney Casey on the way home,' which was what 1 was expecting wud hap pen,' continued Mr. Halloran, raising himself bv trrasriiner the aims of his chair with two capable altnough scar red hands, ''and whin we'd finished wid one another I was like this !

LONNY AND AMANDA. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
LONNY AND AMANDA. Lonny Lamkin is a kindly, simple, blundering fellow, who was always, in difficulties until Amanda Brown, the most capable spinster in the village, compassionately took him in hand and married him._ vious cloud on his usually beaming countenance, dropped into the office of rhe Norley 'Bugle.' 'Hello, Lon!' his friend, the editor, greeted him. 'How's things with you ?' Lonny gazed at him gravely. 'I've come,' he announced, 'to , remonstrate. You been sayin' thipgs in your paper I don't like. Nor Amanda don't like 'em.

Uranquinty. New Store. [Newspaper Article] — The Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser — 6 December 1910
Uranquinty. New Store, It is understood that Messrs. McClure Bros., of The Rock, have let the tender for the erection of their new store at Uranquinty to Mr Yates. The structure will be of brick and similar to The Rock pre premises, and will be a decided acquisition to the town. Messrs McOlure Bros, evidently intend, to shake things up a bit and we wish them success. Butchery, Rumor hath it that a prominent Wagga firm of butchers purpose establishing here. There should certainly bo room for two butchers. One great difficulty in the way of local progress is that the town allot ments are practically locked up. It is a pity that the owners would not build. Farmers and Settlers. The local branch of the Farmers and Settlers' Association held a very successful meeting on Saturday.
