It Takes Time— [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 25 July 1902
It Takes Time To effect all the' improvements required at tbe local Hospital. To survey railway lines on the Colonel Parrott rate of progress. To find a sounder district than Molong. To even guess at the losses caused by the drought fiend. To read the Argus from page to page. To wonder why people patronise alleged sacred concerts. To find a tenantless house about town. To force a man to see his errors when he appears to be successful. To convince a woman that simpering ways rarely catch manly men. To chasten the antagonist spirit of a woman afflicted with a fad. To bring a man of strong will to a realisation of the rights of others. To make a very young man realise how small an atom he is in the world. To make an impression on . a woman who lives in an atmosphere of selfresteem. To convince a man of the nonsense of thinking himself superior to his station! To show the man of pretensions that merit brings the most substantial reward. To get a woman, to confess that she is wrong in he...
A Wonderful Shot. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 25 July 1902
A Wonderful Shot. An exceptionally smart performance for' one so young went down to the credit of ' Parvo ' (Hector Fraser, a 18-year-old son of Mr. J. Fraser, of Melton), at a match of the Melbourne ShootiDg Club. This youngster, who has fairly earned the distinction of champion boy shot of Australia, made a break of 26 kills, 19 pigeons and the balance sparrows, and was only seven times beaten in a course of 46 rounds. A few of bis second barrel shots would have done credit to a Donald Mackin tosh or A. E. Smith. Five of the field of eight for the Moreland Cup were previous winners. The contest was narrowed down till only Mr. Hawkins, a man of large proportions, and tbe nipper, a mere handful, were left, In the shoot off, the lad, in receipt of one yard only, gained a very popular victory. ' Parvo ' handled his father's gun, a Boswell, weighing 71b 14oz charged with Ballistite powder.

The Blessing of a Drought. (For the ARGUS.) [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 25 July 1902
IfrrOUgllt. -.':47r'-'-' — o — . ? / ?v (For the Argus.) Has the drought brought u. blessing ? Undoubtedly it has — not, perhaps, ~ to the people of New South Wales, but to the people of tbe other States of Australia and jflew Zealand it. has been a harvest indeed. Where would be the pastoral and dairying industries . f vt ri '? ? t ri? i i t * i oi new Douiiii waies w--aaj uaa sup plies of fodder not come from outside markets. But why should tbe outside markets be relied upon ? It must be admitted that the fearful consequences of drought tend to exhaust tbe stocks of New South Wales, but why should these stocks so soon be exhausted ? If tbe great drought from which vall are suffering can teach one lesson ; that experience, even at so great a cost, must not be lost. Tbe lesson is this, that New South Wales pastoral ists, agriculturists, and dairy farmers, too, must so fertilise their lands with artificial fertilisers as will enable a binali area under cultivation to carry more stobk...

Tbe crime was of tbe most cold-blooded and, ap parently, premeditated character, and one of the most regrettable features about it .is that the murderers, after completion of their work, escaped from the scene, and up to the#, ine at which we went to press had not been captured. The two offenders were visiting small grocers' shops in the thickly-popnlated part of - /w%jb|^dKH|i8^ Darlington, ?taking* small ^uibWiws: of matches, lollies, &c., and ^passing counterfeit half-crowns as payment.
