Original Poetry. THE GRASS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 17 May 1884

(Original ffocfrn. THE GRASS. Tup, grass, the grass, the beautiful grass, : That brightens this hind of oars ; Oli, why do wo rudoly lot it pass, And only praise tlio flowers? _ Tho blossoms of spring small joys would bring, And tho summer bloom look sad, Wore the earth not green, aud tho distant scene In its emorald robo not clad. Then sing tho grass, tho beautiful grass, That brightens this land of ours ; For thero's not a blade by Nature made Loss pcrfect than tho flowers. Tho grass, tho grass, tlio feathery grass, " That waves in the summer wind, : That stays wlion the flowors all fade and ■;pass ■ Like a, dear old friend behind; That clothes the hills, and the valleys fills, When the treos are stripped aud bare; Oh, tho land would be like a wintery sea, Did not tlio grass linger there, Then sing tho grass, tlio bonny green grass, That to all a charm can lend ; For it's staunch and true, tho wholo year through, And 'tis a laitliful friend. The grass, the grass, the beautiful gra...

THE NEWSPAPERS of the WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 17 May 1884

THE NEWSPAPERS of the WORLD. The Scotsman writes thus :—The number of newspapers in tho United Kingdom forms only a fraction in the statistics of tho world's journalism. In 1880 tbo total for the world was not far short of 20,000, America lioad ing tho list with betweon 0000 and 7000 papers ; Gormauy camo next in order, with over 2300 Great Britain- taking the third placo, followed, within measurable distance by Franco and Italy. Tho lis.t has many curiosities, tho survey of mankind from China to Porn having brought to light tho exisianco of newspapers in . somewhat un expectedly quators. Indeed, tho presence of tho newspaper may almost bo taken as tho clearest sign of an ouiorgenoo from barbai'ism. It is hardly possible to consider a man as, unslaved and wholly vile when wo find him spelling out, however painfully tho record of contemporary news. Tho , Cherokee has a paper of its own which cir culates in the North American backwoods and the Maori is seen perhaps at his best as the ...

NO PABK YET. TO THE EDITOR OP THE FREE PRESS* Sir,—Your exhaustive leader a short time ago does not seem to have agitated the minds of the Bowral Progress Committee in the direction of securing a recreation reserve for our benefit in future years. I throughtly beloive that every town in tho colony —espooially every promising town—should have its placo of resort for old and young, whether for re creation purposes or merely for lovers'walks and talks. A park, considered socially, soems to mo quite a necessity, and I am rather suprised that a continued and determined agitation is not kept up till the much-deBired thing is established in our midst. Perhaps the Progress Committee wants resusoitating first. In that ease a small but enthusiastio park committee should be immediately elected by a public meoting of the residents of Bowral and neighbourhood to carry out the laudable object. Perhaps a few of our large-hearted lady friends will take the prelimin ary Bteps in hand. A " conversazi...
