Letters to the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 10 April 1909

Letters to the Editor. [We do not necessarily identify ourselves with the opinions expressed by our contributors. ] TO THI-C KDITOR. Sir, — As a matter of truth and justice, would you kindly allow me to point out some inaccuracies in your report of my part of a recent entertainment. I refer to the Cabinet Seance. You speak of ' the cord from the neck being securely fastened to a rail of the cabinet, thus making it impossible for him to move hand or foot , or even head.' Re specting the first part of this statement, it is jj inaccurate, because the ends of the cord are passed I through the rail, and are held all the time by one ! of the committee, the cord itself, at the rail, being | sealed, which is a somewhat different statement of i fact. Respecting the second part of the statement would you allow me to say that it is another of the many things I have met with, which prove the truth of my contention, that very few people are capable of making correct observations. As a matter of ...

MOSQUITOES. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 10 April 1909

MOSQUITOES. One evening as I was sitting alone, After a scorching day, Amusing myself with banjo and song, And ice-cool drinks on a tray. ' .. I was just in the midst of a good old song, A mosquito gave me a sting ! I gave a jump, my banjo fell thump ! j I'd a different song to sing. j I got settled once more, and beginning again, Another came buzzing around ; But it didn't alight, for I took a quick flight ; .,r, lyeft my music and things on the ground. That wasn't the last, for they came in a crowd, And flew with zest after me ! I rushed quicker inside, 'neath the curtains tohider There I stopped till I got morning tea. Perhaps the oldest sacred idea in exist ence is of a world tree, a tree of life, whose roots reached into immortality. , In the far north the' ash-tree was typical ; in Germany and Central Europe the pine was held sacred. Their branches played a promin ent part in the rejoicings attendant on the hoty season, which are known as yule, gtile, itil, and a number of sim...

Farewell to the Rev. J. H. Lewin. The Methodist communities of the various towns in the Blue Mountain Circuit have been engaged ! throughout the past week in bidding farewell to their popular minister, the Rev. J. I-I. lyewin and his highly-esteemed wife and family, who are leav ing Katoomba after sojourning in these parts dur ing the Dast four vears. their diligent labours hav ing been crowned everywhere with complete suc cess. At the last annual Conference Mr. I/ewin was promoted to the charge of the Goldsmith-street Methodist Church, Goulburn, having finished the three years term allowed him in this circuit, according to the by-laws of the Methodist Church.

Original Poetry. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 10 April 1909

Original Poetry. [A school-boy, 14 years of age, residing at Iyawsou, sends along the following pieces of poetiy ; his own composition, he says, which, if true, certainly does him credit. Try again, my lad, and you will improve with age. — Ed.] THOUGHTS OF THE MOUNTAINS WHIIJB} IN SYDNEY. Oh, for the blue of the beautiful mountains — I Raising their proud heads up to the sky ; j Oh, for the valleys that lie in their shadow ; I And, oh, for the wild birds that gracefully fly. Oh, how I hate the noise of the city, Where everything's hurry and jostle and push ;: And some of the people you see crossing' the ferry,., I think some of them long for the joys of the bush. I I'd rather live in the poorest of houses, ? I Than live in a mansion amidst Sydney's noise.- I The magpie's sweet singing is my native music 'r 1 Oh, yes, the bush has its unknown joys. I 1 Soon I shall be amidst the blue mountains, I I ne'er want to leave them again till I die. 1 And, without smoke like a curtain hung o'...

Varia. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 10 April 1909

Varia. , THK KvOIvUTION OF THK NKWSPAPK,R ADVT. — I am indebted to 'The Treasury Magazine' for some help in the above subject. Although the following is not the result of original research, it will probably be none the less interesting. 300 years ago newspapers, then called 'newsletters,' contained no adverts, in the present day sense of tne word. J ne word advertisements was men used only to signify ' information ' or ' proclama tion.' Advertisements had their first expression in the form of publishers' notices. Here is a sample : 'Judicious Reader. — Once more be pleased to take notice that thou hast beene often abused by a false and scandalous Diniwall, printed by John an Okes and his associates : to avoid which be pleased to take notice that this is the most approved copie, and shall be known by the name of Yours, unfeigned Robkrt Wood.'

Our tennis players defeated in very convincing style a, team of Sydney players last Saturday. The scores will be found in another colum. The Hawkesbury Racing Club, one of the oldest in the colony, still staggers along ; each year being predicted its last, brought off its annual meeting last Saturday, and was such a success that its 'second time on earth ' is now proclaimed. The A.J.C. faster meeting begins on Saturday, when the principal races are the Autumn Stakes, Sires' Produce Stakes, the Don caster, and St. Iveger. For the first we should say Pendil or Seddon ; the second, Flying' Machine or Sunny , South ; the Doncaster, Irishman, Bobby or Lega tion ; the vSt. Leger, Lord Nolan, Monobel ' or Flaxen. The Sydney Cup, with 28 horses still in, and the betting of a flitting character, gives outsiders no line. King's Cross will give his su...

A Special Easter Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 17 April 1909

A Special Easter Meeting. Baster and Sydney sounds lovely. But if you like you can have this bit of the Sydney Baster Meeting brought right to your own. door. Nothing is impossible nowadays, and when you find a firm with a reputation to keep up, guaranteeing to re move all superfluous fat in men and women — both sexes mind — and that without putting them on any severe diet, or forcing them to swallow any vile tonic, you can guess you have met something worth keeping sight of. This is what the Asturias Company guarantees to do. It does many wonder ful things. Removes freckles with its freckles lotion, builds up a beautiful complexion by its dif ferent creams, and can make hair grow on the bnldest bald spot with its Renilga Salve, but it also absolutely guarantees that it will 'give 'you a cure for insomnia, and relieve you of that awful torture of. mind and body caused by ?' I can't sleep.' Only a. fool would miss such' a chance as this. Write to our Manageress, 13 Phoenix Cham bers,...
