The "Shell" Oil Company. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 18 April 1902
The ' Shell ' Oil Company. The ' Shell ' Transport and Trading Company, whose exhibits at tho recent Show were full of interest and won a large number of wcll-desorvod prizes, is an institution which has not been very long in existence in Sydney. It ia doubtful, however, if among any of its senior con temporaries there is any company which has proved more successful or is estab lished on a firmer or more prosperous basis. Tlie object of tlie company is to import kerosene oil into Australia and to supply it to the inhabitants of the Commonwealth at prices which were not dreamed of before its inauguration. To do this immensely large importations are 'SHELL' OIL RAILWAY TAN Kb necessary, and tliesu importations are made by ' tank ' steamers, which carry the oil in bulk from tlie company's wells in Baku, upon tho Caspian, and in Borneo. Of these vessels the Turbo which has frequently been described in the Sydney Press is a good example. Tlie Turbo is a vessel of rather more than 4,000 t...
OF VALUE TO WHEAT GROWERS [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 18 April 1902
OF VALUE TO WHEAT GROWERS I ? ?

Co-operation Scores. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 18 April 1902
Co-operation Scores. Thejudges of tbe flour exhibits hud dilli cult work in deciding which of the exhibits had tbe best claims to their awards. When the general choice whs made it' was found the award had gone to the Young Co-operative Milling Company. This speaks well for the quality of the wheat grown in that district, and is also an endorsement to the value of co-operative work. From what we bear the Milling Conuiany is a highly prosperous con cern, whose (lour is sought for from all parts.
Show Ground Improvements. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 18 April 1902
Show Ground Improvements. ? It was pleasant to see this Easter the splendid improvements that the society has Ihrough the year ueen able to carry out. The asphalted paths and roadways in particular | Iwere a welcome sight, for on previous occa sions the dust caused by the tremendous | traffic was unpleasant to exhibitors as well as the spectators. Much better arrangements, too, were provided for refreshments, some half-dozen additiona stands having been erected. It was possible this year to secure a sandwich and cup of tea without risking Mr.H. 1). Morton's 'Norton.''

S#j5?|pNE of the most familiar, yet one of the moBt pitiable sights wMch, olijjjfc the great metropolis of London affords ia that of a procession of sandwichmen, tramping wearily along in tho mud of the gutter, bearing on the boards that Bcreen their raes from view the advertisements of some great estab lishment which caters for the rich and mighty. -How many and human duuuuionto mu confined in these boards, that paBs ns by daily, no one can exactly tell, but at the lowest estimate there are two thousand human wrecks who prolong life in London . —they cannot be said to Jive, for what know they of the joy of life, recipients as they are of one shilling and twopence for trudging for twelve hours through the pliiBh and mire as living advertisements for millionaires' wares P One and twopence a day to keep body and soul together — and yet England is the richest country and London the richest city the sun kaB ever shone upon !

Sketcher. HYPNOTISM. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 18 April 1902
Skefcher. HYPNOTISM. SngT is a curious fact that there are still lITct thousands of intelligent people in g§g .England, and we suppose in other countries as well, who firmly believe that hypnotism and its attendant phenomena do not really exist, but are merely the result of collusion between the operator and subject. Unfortunately they have had in the past sufficient grounds on which to build this concep tion ; but on the other hand, the mass of evidence available, and of an absolutely trustworthy nature, uuhuul pueBiuiy utj ignored ; while the close study of this subject by the medical profession pro mises in the near future to bring hyp notism and its practical uses prominently before the public. From time immemorial Egyptian sorcerers and conjurers prac tised the art of inducing artificial sleep for the purpose of impressing the people with their supernatural power?, while it is well known that Indian ascetics, in deed ascetics of all ages and countries, have been adepts in hypno...
HIS MOTHER. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 18 April 1902
HIS MOTHER. Within her fond, encircling arm Safe Blept her little child — A helpless weight, sweet-breathed and warm, Her eager look down-bent to scan That face, all lovely innocence, She seized on with prophetic sense — i oreeaw ice noro that shonid be Clothed in his manhood's majesty, And seeing, smiled. Relaxed in every massive limb, Y The man, sore wearied, sleeps ; His bearded cheek is roup h and grim. She, hovering near him wistfully, And gazing long, is fain to trace One line of childhood's purity In that toil-hardened, world-hardened faoe. Now once again she feels and seeB Her nursling warn upon her knees, And seeing, weeps. The Independent.

POETRY. WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT. When tho lights go out, when the lights go out. And the trembling hand is groping in the darkness round about For the gentle claem it misses. For the lips with last, sweet kiBses; May 1 find you then, my dearie, when the lights go out ! When the lights go out, when tho lights go out, W hen the bright stars fade from heaven and the darkness is a doubt, May your hoart— the first to love me — In that moment beat above me ; May I find you then, my dearie, when the lights go out ! When the lights go out, when the lights go out, Will your dear lipB whisper faith, dear — will they kiss away the doubt P Oh, my soul, though unforgiven, Shall with dying eyea Bee heaven If my darling in but near me when the lights go out I P.

Ladies' Column ORIGINAL LONDON LETTER Bt MRS STRANGE BUTSON. (All Eights Reserved.) WARM WINTER COATS JJK^^£HETHER short or long must be ?nKAIrs very thoroughly practical gJjp&lBa whilst there is no reason they should not be quite elegant. Many people fancy that real fur is quite out of their reach as to expense, and yet they will buy a coat of cloth that is within a few shillings of a good fur jacket. There are many imitation furs that wear really as well as those that are natural. The so-called 'coney-seal' capes and jackets are the most satisfactory of these, and of course are far cheaper than real. There are also a large number of imita tion sable, in furs dyed to resemble that skin, which when copying tho dark, or Russian species, make very presen table capes and trimmings. In the illustration, 1 have given you two Examples of cloth and fur coats. The first, which is of cloth, though called a ' sac' paletot iB by no means the lGose un gainly garment generally made by ou...
No title [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 18 April 1902
The most highly paid actresB on the London stage is said to be Miss Ada Rehan. Some time ago she refused a guaranteed offer of £200 a week for a year in America. The rose is an ' emblem of secrecy in Greece, and accordingly this flower used to ba hung over the table where guests were entertained in token that nothing heard there was to be repeated. A Swedish bride, if she be prudent and superstitious, will fill her pockets with bread before she sets ont for the church, and to every poor person she gives a piece, thus averting as many misfortunes from herself or her husband. An interesting 'window is that at Friedenborg Palace, which contains signatures of royal visitors. Among them are the signatures of ihe late Tear and his consort, and our own Kin? and Queen as Prince and Princess of /Wales. Just under the signatures the 'pane is cut away and neatly joined to a plain Bheet of glass. This was done by order of Her Majesty, the late Queen of Denmark, for she noticed that some plebeia...
