THE DRY SEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 14 February 1905

THE DBT SEA. When the roll-call of Jehovah sounds along the farthest shore. And the ebbing sea shall gather by the coast line never more, There's a sea to south, far inland, with no v waters in its bed, Bound with rock and swept with sand storms—it shall give up many dead. There the sons of God lie sleeping— some of Ishmael's stock that strayed Hawkers, swagmen, shearers, drovers, by the Dry Sea's shore are laid ; Bronzed and bearded, tanned like Arabs, droving down the dusty plains, Driving cattle to the market, riding home ward with tlieir gains. Teamsters toiling up the roadways — men and horses red as rust. Wheels and bed and axles covered with the ' Never Never ' dust. Chan and beer, and goods bound outward —great red bales of wool bound in ; Flies and dust and heat and curses (no one thinks the cursing sin). Long, dry stretches 'tween the campings, panting horse and tine, for the bores and tanks lie sparsely out beyond the Border-line. Only they can know who live it— may their...

WIND ON THE SEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 14 February 1905

*m OH- THE SEA. The loneliness of the sea is in my heart And the wind is not more lonely than this grey mind. I have thought far thoughts, I have loved, and I find, Love gone, thought weary, and I, alas, left behind. The lonelines of my heart is in the sea, And my heart is not more lonely than this grey wind. Who shall stay the feet of the sea or bind The wings of the wind ? Only the feet of mankind Grow old in the place of their sorrow, and bitter is the heart That may not wander as the wind or return as the sea. — Arthur Svmons. Wallace Nelson, the bald-headed little spouter who represents Hannan's in the West Australian Assembly, says :— ' The life of a politician is divided into two periods— the first when he is on the hust ings making promises, the second when be is facing an infuriated population ex plaining why' he did not keep his pro mises.'

Reminiscences. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 14 February 1905

\ Reminiscences, | The following letter em phasises the fact that, with cer tain road repairs, goods might be delivered at Queanbeyan within seven days from the time of their leaving Sydney : Jt, Omer, i :%thi-July, 1863. Dear Sib,— I dare say you are aware that a public meeting was held in Braid wood last- week for the purpose of urging on the Government the necessity of mak ing some radical improvements in the condition of the Clyde road. At that meeting a committee was formed for the purpose of (among other things) urging the necessity for a larger grant for repairs to this road. I have been requested to ask your co-operation in this matter, and I have no doubt you will heartily join in the effort now being made for this work. I need scarcely point out to one of your acuteness that self-interest (if no higher motive urged) should induce you to use your utmost efforts to push this mat ter forward. If this thoroughfare were declared a first-class road, and a sufficient sum expended...

Salmagundi Af r 7 LoVeks of pork mil be inter ested to hear that a full-grown pig, lately deceased, may be had free of Charge by borrow ing Charley's boat and sculling to the southern end of the weir. He's a floater, and intending pilots are advised to approach from the windward. It is not defiinitely known whether the aforesaid misguided animal sivicided before or after the re sult of the election was made public; but it is, I believe, gen- erally known that our Council is not— strange to say — in pos session of the weir which flows through the Municipality, and therefore the blessed guv'ment should shift the ' berk.'

THE MUNICIPAL BALLOT. DEMOCRATIC VICTOST. The ballot for three aldermen to sit for three years was taken in Queanbeyan on Saturday, when the poll proved one of the heaviest that has been recorded here.

Passing Notes. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 14 February 1905

I Passing Dotes. [?] IN a local contemporary a con tributor, siguing himself ' A Working Man Ratepaj-er ' (whom this scribe can locate in ?just one guess), makes what appears to be a reference to The Leader's appeal to the voters to place the democratic :nen at the head of the poll ; and he weepfully protests that ' there was a time when there were no factions' in Qnean beyan, when all pulled to gether, with a long pull, and a strong pull, and with the best results.' The Obsereuv's al leged correspondent made one error which I hasten to correct ; and I'm sure he will appreciate the spirit in which the correc tion is made. Instead of ' no factions,' the words should read ' one faction.' As to whether the alleged correspon dent refers to the time of the recent State election, wheu the two Reform papers pulled to gether iu a strongly peculiar manner, and with results that were KOT the best from their view-point, or to the good old days when it was the custom to pull together' with a lo...

Fire at Williamsdale. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 14 February 1905

rire at WUUam»4al». Last Thursday evening word reached Queanbeyan that the resi dence and household furniture of Mr. M. Neale, Williamsdale, had be;n totally destroyed by fire the previous evening (Wednesday). Apparently, the fire was started by a lighted candle which had been on a table in one of the bedrooms. Although a large number of willing friends gathered at the scene of the fire, they were unable to do anything toward checking the flames. Mr. Neale made an unsuccessful effort to rescue a draw containing the sum °f £39, a'd narrowly escaped filling a victim to the flames himself. Mr. and Mrs. Neale and their three clii'dren have for the present found shelter with Mr. G. Wilson and Mr. F. Smith.
