? ?' c — ? Young Woman Found in Awful Con dition with Scabies—Body a Mass of Sores from Scratching— Tried IVIany Remedies for Seven Weeks — Result Was Discouraging, But ITCHING TORTURES YIELDED TO CUTICURA 'While I was doing missionary work in the lower portion of several cities I found it necessary to know a little of ? the efficacy of a few medicines and after a while I found that a little knowl edge of Cuticura was about all I needed. One of the very bad cases I had to deal with was thab of a young woman who had come to us nob only broken in spirit but in a most awful condition physically. Our doctor examined her and told us thab she had scabies (the itch), incipient paresis, rheumatism, etc., brought on from exposure and the effects of her ragged -eclged life. Her poor body was a mass of sores from scratching and she was not able to retain solid food. We tried many things, a good tonic was prescribed and baths with a rubbing of lard and sulphur.

At King Edward's Court. THE COST OF A PRESENTATION OUTFIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 24 April 1909

At King Edward's Court. THB COST OF A PRESENTATION OUTFIT. Many of our readers who have read of the dazzling scenes that take place at Bucking-ham Palace when the King and Queen hold a Court may have longed to be one of the favored few to receive the coveted ' ' command ' ' for presentation to their Majesties, but few realize the weeks of anxiety and the great expense entailed for Court dress the privileged ones have to endure in order to spend a few moments in the presence. FABUIvOUS SUMS MAY BE SPENT. The expenditure on a presentation outfit in many cases is said to run into fabulous sums, but while there is no limit to the expenditure involved, in most cases the real cost is over-estimated. It is true that at the last Court a titled lady wore a gown of very valuable lace worth about ,£3,000, but the lace was not expressly purchased for the occasion, but had been in the family for centuries, The most costly presenta tion outfit on record, however, was that of a rich American bride...

THE WAR SCARE. TO THIS EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 24 April 1909

THE WAR SCARE. TO THK EDITOR. Sir, — In your issue of April 10 you say 'The1 Dreadnought, fever has not struck any part of the: Mountains yet that we are aware of, certainly not Katoomba. It is only a passing madness anyway, and a few days will see it a thing of the past. The lyord Mayor of Sydney says he is determined to see it through, if he does he may be rewarded by a handle to his name.' I desire to strongly protest against the whole of these sentiments and comments. True, Katoomba has not as yet made anv demonstration, but I venture to sav that nine out of every ten persons view the scare in a serious light, and consider the agitation justifiable. When such solid, calm, and far-seeing men as Sir Hector Carruthers, who has just returned from a trip to the Old lyand, where he has been in touch with brainy politicians and military men who view the outlook of war between Great Britain and Ger many as most probable, and even fear the result, it is time Britain's cubs arose to show ...

The Home Page. Fashions and Fancies. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 24 April 1909

The Home Page. By Myona. Fashions and Fancies. Do you know what your feelings would be if you were in Sj'dney to-day and to-morrow and the next day? I'll tell you. ' ' And in my heart if calm at all If any clam a calm despair.' Clothes grow prettier and more tempting every day. As for the furs, words fail me to tell you of the beauties to be seen from one end of fashionable Sydney to the other. So far it is only fashionable Sydney that is in furs. It is not cold enough yet for the Great Fringe of Outer Darkness to follow suit and wear the moults of other days and the suburban night singers' soft garments, and poor defunct Bunny's once warm raiment as the nearest approach they can get to their hearts' desires. Poor Outer Darkness. I am oh, so sorry for it, for it does love to be upsides with, or if not that, to follow in the wake, of ' the woman in the motor car.' For that is where you see furs in perfection. It is odd the, way the pathetic side of some things strike one and the ludi...

In the Shadow of the Cross. The Spiritual Side of Everyday Life Discussed. "ALL TOPS AN' NO 'TATERS." [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 24 April 1909

In the Shadow of the Cross. The Spiritual Side of Everyday Life Discussed. ' AXJV TOPS AN' NO 'TATKRvS.' I was staying' last summer in a little country village, and, out for a walk one morning, came to a garden in which, it seemed to me, was one of the nicestlook ing beds of potatoes I had ever seen. 'You have a fine crop there,' I re marked to the owner, who was working close by. And he smiled at me with amused tolerance. Fine ! ' ' he echoed scornful^, ' ' they bain' t fine; they'm all tops and no 'taters. ' ' And then he went on to explain that luxuriant growth above, at all events in that particular variety of potato, was an indication that there was but a. poor crop below. I had judged by the outside ap pearance which in this case was nothing to go by. And it suddenly occured to me that here was a parable of life. Haven't you some times come across an 'all tops and no 'taters' sort of person. Sometimes, per haps, 3'ou may even have been an 'all tops and no 'taters ' kind of per...

St. George, Patron Saint of England. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 24 April 1909

St. George, Patron Saint of England. It is remarkable and regrettable how little is made of the Patron Saint of Knglaml compared with other Patron Saints of Great Britain. St. George's day falls on April 23rd. This Saint is known as St. George the Martyr. He was born in Cappadocia and suffered for the sake of his Christianity under the Kmperor Diocletian in whose army he had been a colonel, in the year 270, A.D. He is supposed to be the person who pulled down the edict against the Christians, which Diocletian had caused to lie affixed to the doors of the Church Nicomedia. In olden times especially, St. George was regarded not only as the Patron Saint of England, but of Christianity itself. He was selected as the Patron Saint of Kngland at the Synod of Oxford in A.D. 1220. Previous!)' Kdwardthe Confessor had been regard ed as such. The Cross of St. George, combined with that of St. Andrew, appears in our national flag. Several orders of knighthood have been insti tuted in honor of St...

I SPRINGWOOD. | [From our Own Corrkspondknt]. The final competition cricket, between the Springwood and Penrith Railway teams, was continued at Penrith on Saturday last. In the Railwa3'\s second innings they lost 8 wickets for 85 runs. A lecture was given on Friday evening in the Springwood Hall by the Rev. Wool nough. The subject dealt with Norfolk Island. The proceeds went towards the Dreadnought Fund. The Parents and Citizens' Association is organising funds for the celebration of Em pire Day, which is to take the form of a children's picnic and sports on Tomatia Park. Cool bracing weather has been the order of the week here, with an occasional promise of rain, but which has npt so far been fulfilled, much as it is desired. Get your tanks cleaned out in readiness.
