The Annual Races. NOMINATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 16 February 1904
The Annual Races. NOMINATIONS. No.Nr?ATIoss for the Annual Race Meeting on Saturday and Monday next for the two principal events closed last night and,although not up to expectations, are fairly good. At Cooma where the prize money is far more liberal, the nominations for the principal handicaps are not much better. The entries for the undermentioned events cannot be taken as a criterion that the minor events are not going to fill well. Horseowners now very seldom nominate for the principal races, but prefer bringing their horses along for the short races and, therefore, we may yet expect to see a number of horses engaged at the meeting. The second iay of the races has been proclaimed a public holiday. The nominations for the undermentioned events are : PUBLICANS' PURSE, 15 sovs.,.7 furlongs ; second horse a sovs. from prize. Mr. W.

Electoral Divisions Commission. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 16 February 1904
- Electoral Divisions Commission.. Tan commission appointed under the Distri bution of Seats Act is carrying out ite duties as rapidly as the circumstances will allow. The commission has been consulted by a few members ofParliament who have offered suggestions regarding certain electorates. These suggestions have been courteously received, but to what extent they will be acted upon remains with the commission to decide. The provisional scheme will, it is thought, be out shortly. Sir John See hoped it would be completed within a fortnight from the beginning of work, but that will prob ably be found to be impossible. Maps will be issued with the scheme, and when mem bers see how their old electorates have been dealt with the commission will, no boubt, be urged-to re-consider their decision in respect to a number of electorates. In consequence of the election of Mayor being adjourned on Saturday night till to n ight at 8 o'clock, the meeting to consider the -redistribution -f electorat...

AT the Metropolitan Quarter ,Sessions on Thursday a German na.med John Miller with fully a score of convictions secordod against him, pleaded guilty to a charge of breaking and entering a house in Malesay-street. It transpired that the police managed to sheeo home the charge against thoprisoner solely by means of the Simon finger print system, and this, it was stated, was the first instance of the kind in New South Wales wherein a conviction had boen thus obtained. Two finger-marks were outlined on the dust on Ia sash of a balcony window of the house, and on being compared with the impressions co. lected by the police from criminalse' fingers they were found to correspond exactly' with those of accused. That was the sole piece of evideoucoe against accused, who did 'not deny the pharge.

The Methodical Housewife [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 16 February 1904
The Methodical Hlousewife SHE is the wonder of her sex, the envy-and admiration of husband, son, and all." How easily she does seem to float along life's course Work seems to get done for the asking ; her home is epic and span; yet she don't seem to have half 'the labour, nor half the burden her neighbours have who are scrubbing floors or plying needle from morn till night. You can always tell the Methodical woman. She economises her time, does not spend two minutes on a task when it need only take one, always has things in their proper places, could find them in the dark if she wanted, and never has a screw loose in any part of the domestic machinery. One household article she can never afford to be without is a dainty green pot of Z m.Buk, which she or any of her family may need at a moment's notice for bruises, cuts, burns, scalds, eczema or any irritated condition of the skin due to accident or ill.health. Zam-Buk being a purely vegetable healing balm of many merits and containi...

Ilirre were precent : Aldermen Pike (chair), fiungerford, IIi cksman, Collett, Dixie, Atkinson, and Knox. After the minutes of the previous meeting were read anld confirmed, the chairman an nounced the busin,-ss of the meeting, and also since there were more than one nomina tion he desired that they first of all decide upon their method o: voting. Alderman Dixie moved that the result be declared by ballot. Alderman Atkinuson seconded. Aldermen Hungerford and Collett favored open voting. 1 his they maintained was usual in the election of mayor. Alderman Dixie submitted that this would be too invidious. They all desired to be on personal terms, and if they, at the beginning of the year, openly pronounced their adverse views, that state of affairs would most prob ably exist right through the municipal year.

War News. LoiDno, Thursday.-During the second fight at Port Arthur, the Russian torpedo-boats gallantly dashed towards tbe .Iapainese fleet, but they experienced such a terrific fire that they were compelled to retreat behind the battleships A furious fight. followed, the shore batter ies joining in. It lasted half an hour. One shell disab!ed the Russian battleship Poltava (10,963 tons) almost immediately, and ashell from one of the furts di-abled the cruiser Diana (6630 tono). The cruisers Novik (3200 tons) and Askold (6100 tons) becoming too venturesome were severely punished by the Japanese gunners, and retreated greatly damaged. The Novik and Poltava sustained such serious injuries that they had to be beached. The japanese fleet is coaling at sea, but is expected to shortly return to port Arthur. Meanwhile a Vladivostock telegram states that the Russian cruisers at Port Arthur are about to run the gauntlet. There is now no question but that the Russian cruisers Varyag and Koriet...

Mr. Dnncan McInnes, who resides at the Bridge, is the possessor of_ the tanned skin of a very fine specimen of the diamond 'snake, which when killed -a little while ago measured 8ft. 4in. It was killed near the junition of the Qneanbeyan River with the Murrumbidgee, and there- were in the party when the owner of. the skin struck the fatal blow, Messrs. W. Rule, Mark Southwell, James McInnes and Duncan Molnnes, On skinning the reptile it was found to contain no less than 59 young ones, and they were systematically arranged in this order := It will be observed that while the young snakes .were . arranged in two- eved lines -along the belly, the odd one was curiously in the centre of the6 lines at the tail end. Thisis a s(udy fr. the naaturalist. Snakes must bo very proliflo, and the killing of this one will rid the neighbourhood of sixty rrp tiles.

Johnson himself was a charming fellouw, a splendid fellow ; but Sir Hubert had heard astounding accounts of his alarming City friends. He made excuses therefore ; but Johnson persisted, and finally there was a compromise.. Sir Hubert and his wife would not come to dinner, but they would look in afterwards, somewhere about nine o'clock. Mr. Johnson showed great relief at having gained his point, and at once took his leave. On his way to the door with Sir Hubert, he bowed to Barbara, who was as unbending as ever. But Mr. Johnson lingered. 5k' I hope,' said he, very deferentially, ' that Miss Hayle will do us the honour of coming too P I'm 'not really the ogre I have been described to be, with a wife shut up in the cellar.
