Miss Helen Keller. Sketch of an Afflicted Wonder. [Newspaper Article] — The Southern Record and Advertiser — 3 September 1910

Miss Helen Keller. Sketch of an Afflicted Wonder, Makk Twain' once said that the two most interesting characters cf the l^th century were Napoleon and Helen Keller.' This remarkable woman was ushered into the world mints the senses of sight'aud hearing, and, of course, was dumb. Under the patient teaching of Miss Fuller, and afterwards of Miss Sullivan, however, she learned to speak ?with her lit s. This was her first great success of her life. Of it she said in later years : — ' No deaf child who has earnestly tried to speak the words ?which he has never heard — to come out of the prison-house of silence where no tone o£ love, or song of bird, or strain of music ever pierces the stillness — can forget the thrill of surprise, the joy of discovery that came over him when he ottered his first word. Only such a one can appreciate the eagerness with ?svhich I talked to my toys, to stones, trees birds, or dumb animals: or the deliglit I felt when at my call my sister Tan to me, or my dog...

In the first place, then, the writers must not be influenced too much by their books. Good works on the subject will supply valuable information as to matters of fact, but only original thought can give broad intelligent views, and only the expression of such views iu original language can make a good essay. This applies to all essays, but particularly to those on historical subjects. The young essayist should endeavour to have something original to say, and to say it in his own way. This may ...

By NORBERT CORNELL—Convent School. [Newspaper Article] — The Southern Record and Advertiser — 3 September 1910

By NORBSRT CORNEL.L Convent School. ? o ? Eden, though not a large town is a favourite watering place. It is noted for the beauty of its surroundings, and its spacious harbour. But on account of the inconveniences of travelling, it is little patronised as a tourist resort. The only chance for this district is to make one united appeal to the Minister for Home Affairs, to have the Federal port at Twofold Bay, instead of at Jervis Bay. Then Eden would have a cnauce or exceeding her commerce, and of opeuing up her mineral resources. Its port is all that could be desired ? being deep, easily entered, and safe for shipping. A light house, which is of service to Captain's of vessels, — and a pilot station, are the signals which mark Twofold Bay. A fine pier has been erected at Hie port to enable the steamers of the Illawarra aud Sonth Coast Company to load and unload produce, and merchandise. Boyd town which occupies the southern portion of Twofold Bay, is the scene of the whaling industr...

Washed off the Rocks. [Newspaper Article] — The Southern Record and Advertiser — 3 September 1910

WflSlMon flt-2 RUCKS. On Ssaturday morning at 5 o'clock Messrs. J. G. Lambert, H. Wiles and V. Nelson left Moruya heads for Bingie on horseback, with the intention of fishing for sharks. They reached Bingie about 7 o'clock, and before com mencing breakfast decided to throw in their lines. They had crossed the small bridge to the high outer rocks, and Mr. Lambert had just thrown his line when he saw a large wave breaking. He turned and the wave eaiifrhfc him nn the back and hurled him into the sea, which was then a boiling mass be tween the rocks. Messrs. Wiles and Nelson made every effort to locate their mate, but failed. They then noticed that Lambert's line was on the rocks, with one end of it in the sea, and they pulled on it in the hope of assist ing him. Suddenly the line parted, and Lambert came to the surface. The line was tangled about his feet, and the ?pulling of it had kept him under. With great presence of mind Lambert now commenced to divest himself of clothing, and whi...

The R.C. Ball. [Newspaper Article] — The Southern Record and Advertiser — 3 September 1910

The R.c. boil ? « ? The annual ball held in the School of Arts on Wednesday night in aid of St. Joseph's Church turned out a most en joyable and pleasing function. Though not up to the management's expecta tions in a monetary way, the ball was a rattling success in all other respects, there being JDst enough in attendance to make it pleasurable and not enough to make things uncomfortable, while the dresses were fine and picturesque. The joint secretaries, Mesdames C. Bright and S. Hanscombe, assisted by au able and willing committee, had everything in the best order and not a hitch occurred in all the proceedings. The hall windows were hung with cur tains and some mirrors on the walls made a very effective but not over done decoration. The night was an ideal one, not too hot for the dancers and not too cold for looking-on. The supper room was a picture of niceties, and was under the control of Mesdames Bright, Hanscombe, Murphy, Cornell, and Nutland, and Misses Hart, Hans combe, Roo...

During the debate ou the Land Tax Bill iu the House of Reps., Sir John Quick claimed that as the measure was introduced to burst up large estates it encroached on the rights of the States. He predicted that the High Court would see through the tricks of the Labour Party in usurping the land policy by means of the tax. The de bate was further adjourned. The South Australian Premier, speaking in reference to the strike of the nnited laborers, declared that the Labor Party of to-day would not be dictated to by revolutionary Socialists. He said he would decline to dismiss the ganger, Thomson, who had not committed any offence aud the charges against whom had never been proved.

A "Slave." [Newspaper Article] — The Southern Record and Advertiser — 3 September 1910

A 'Sieve.' A ' What a shame for a big, strong man to be such a slave to an invalid wife !' The words were spoken in a disgust ed tone by a girl in the saloon of an ocean steamer. The persons to whom she made her caustic criticism were slowly descending the stairs. The woman was pale and haggard. Her hands were twisted by pain, and her voice had the pathos of suffering. She was helped from state room to steamer chair aud back every day, and all day long her handsome husbaud attended upon her. He adjus'ed her wraps, saw that her food was prepared for her helpless hands, read to her hour after hour, or sat quietly with his hand resting near hers, and his eyes watch-' ing her, even wheu they seemed fixed on the horizon. Sympathetic spectators had pitied the mau even while they admired his devotiou, and the girl had put into words the popular irritation when she called him ' a slave to au invalid wife.' She spoke in a louder tone than she meant, and the two persons interested iu her spee...
