Traveller. RECOLLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 25 April 1902
Traveller. ?EECOLLECTIONS. iSWnlKY recollections of Peterhead — snid ijlacjp MCaid — are far from plea 'AHIk Ellnt. and I can only recall them always with the bitterest of regrets. The prison has acquired for itself a bad name. Ex-convicts who have been in Kntlish prisons, and with whom I have, as yon can understand, come into frequent contact, speak as a rule favour ably of thair ' lagging ' over the Bordeie, ft/UO «B»w Ul U1JF Ulf? U1U ± WU1B OU1VBB a single man incarcerated in Peterhead who had » good word to say of it or of itB officials. The Peterhead officers are most recruited from the agricultural classes. They are invariably ignorant and illiterate, and always wanting is the touch of human sympathy which a prisoner, no matter how black his record may be, longs for. Perhaps the solitari ness of the Peterhead place enhances the punishment, but at any rate yon can take it from me tbat this convict gaol is the most unpopular of its kind, probably in the world now. In 1888, when...
Sketcher. MISTAKES OF CULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 25 April 1902
Sketcher. MISTAKES OP CtTLTUBE. WSWfOMETHING is wrong with our j?5jt higher culture in all directions. 3j2li The sohools are discovering that the products of their advanced methods can neither spell nor write. Bible students are growing weary of the higher criticism and turning back to Milton and the fall of Lucifer to put the creation story in order. And, most alarming of all, well-known leaders of the liberal movement in thought and theology ara in a. naof lif.tia cmt-immar*a wrt4:V Aasil* other, which discourages the hope of letting brotherly love continue along the pleasant lines they had set up. Some things, hewever, even in our per turbed educational systems, seem likely to become fixed. One of the interesting stories touching their advanced methods with the untrained mind presents the case of a small girl who was given tor correction, as to facts and construction, samples of English that ran thus: 'The hen has three legs. Who done it P* iraaung ner perioas alter me mosi appro...

The provisions of tlie Miners' Acsidont Relief Act are applicable to all mine* employing fifteen or more persun.i, and in such cases contributions by otrners aud by employees are eompulsary.

Naturalist, ANIMALS THiT WILL NOT DIE. ^np^NIMALS differ greatly in their £jybu resiBt&nce to mortal injury and ifflf in their ability to repair damages. Even some of the most highly organised are mush favoured in this respect.

[?]udal. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 25 April 1902
Cudal. .(From our Correspondent.') The weather f --r the last few days nas been very oppressive, nearly up to mid summer temperature, but to-day a wel oojne cha-age took place, and about 7 o'clock a thunder storm passed rover and a nice shower of rain fell, I do not know liow many .points were registered, bu presumably about 50. The long continued spelt 01 dry weather has considerably retarded thu progress of ploughing, not owing to the harduess of the land, but scarcity of water, manv farmers having to utilise the forenoon in driving their stock to water, or carting it to thom; or carting it for domostic supplies. It is the loigest anl severest drought that has bean felt in this district for many years, there being a combined scarcity of grass, water, fodder, etc., a proof that these kinds of years occur but seldom in this district when farmers will sell out all their stuff, and leave themselves short of forage to face what might culminate in a most disastrous winter. There are two...
