Hay Convent Schools. THE BREAKING-UP. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900
liny Con veii t Schools. THE BREAKING-UP. In last Thursday's issue we reported the concert given that morning by the High School in celebration of closing up for the Christmas vacation. On Friday morning, the turn of the Primary School came, when there was a good attendance of parents and friends to hear the rendition of a programme by thein and the presenta tion to them of prizes. As is usual in all Convent schools, owing to tlie de voted efforts of the good Sisters, a high state of proficiency was reached in the various items on the programme, which was as follows : — ' Angels We Have Heard On High,' .school ; recitation; Master W. Allman ; infant's song ; ' Australian Commonwealth,' song and tableau representing Federated Australia, school ; recitation, Master Robert Melrose ; recitation, ' Jack Jingle,' Miss Nita Bance ; Christmas carol, school song ; piano solo, Miss Kathleen Reid ; dialogue, Master J. and C.

HOW TO SPOIL A CHILD. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900
HOW TO SPOIL A CHILD. Begin young by giving him whatever he cries for. Talk freely before the child about his cleverness as incom parable. Tell him he is too much for you, that you can do nothing with him. Have divided counsels as between father a mere i whipping machine. Let hi'* learn (from I his father's example) to despise his I mother. Do not know or care who his companions may be. Let him read what ever he likes. Let the child, whether boy or girl, rove the streets in the evening, and let him have plenty of money to spend. Chastise severely for a foible and laugh at a vice. These rules are not untried. Many parents have proved them, with a substantial uniformity of results. If a faithful observance of them does not spoil your child, you will at least have the comfortable reflection that you have done what you could.
Heard Round About. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900
Heard Rouud About. [Bv Quiz.] That before our next issue the Christmas of 1900 and the last of the 19th century will have passed, and ' Quiz ' doubly wishes the compli ments to all and sundry, and lropes that with the advent of a new century and that of tlie Commonwealth, the Christmases to come will find every one in much better circumstances. That ihe importance of the Com monwealth inauguration will appeal to every man and woman in Australia, and therefore we all expect to see al most every man, woman, and child within a fair distance of Hay joining in the local demonstrations. That the death-rate of the Hay representatives in South Africa has been almost 25 per cent That the police returns of the grain crops in tlie district of Hay will be completed by the 25th of January next. Farmers should be prepared to supply the information. That drunks are locally a miserable source of revenue to the Government just now, judging by their scarcity at tlie police court the last few weeks. T...
AN AMUSING OCCUPATION FOR A RAINY DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900
AN AMUSING OCCUPATION FOR A RAINY DAY. Mothers are often sorely puzzled to know what to give children to play with when confined to the house through ill ness or bad weather. Here is a new and rather good idea : Procure about a dozen balls of wrapping twine in a variety of colours. Select three— say, red, white and blue : tie the ends together, securelv fasten them to a table, and give them to the child to braid. It will take quite a long time to come to a point where the ends can be neatly knotted. When the first is finished another can be made of yellow, white, and green, and a third of orange, black, and white. The three strings can then be made one by braiding, and the complete result will give the child a brilliantly-coloured pair of rein6 for playing horses. These reins have the advantage of being 6trong, and are all the more highly prized because they were actually made by the little owner.

The Magnetic Continent. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900
Tliv IWiignctic Continent. The most .prominent feature of the Windsor Magazine last month is undoubtedly the article bv Ernest E. Williams on Africa. Wif,i wonderful conciseness, he i yes a »urvey of the vast content, sliowing the present state of agriculture and commerce and possibilities of development, in every coun try. ' I .suppose for some years to come we shall go on speaking of Africa as the Dark Continent. But we shall be doing Africa an injustice. If there is one part of the world more than another into which floods of the light of Western civilisation have been poured of late, and are going to be in yet greater quantities in the near future, that part of the world is the African Conti nent. Two years ago Lord Kitchener threw it open from the north ; to-day Lord Roberts assisted by Lord Kitchener, is throwing it open from south — and Mr. Rhodes is going to pierce the intervening gloom with his railway and telegraph. The work of exploration and civilisation is proceeding in...
(To THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900
(to toe editor. Sir, — I would much like to know why our Councillors call for tenders for labor of any description;' when they vote against men who tender as low as other tenderers, and men who they well know are quite as good and honest workmen. I am a much lamer ratepayer than any of the other tenderers, and I am not second to any of them as a workman, yet time after time I have failed to be noticed by our aldermen. I expect if I was a lover of '? Swankey ' I should meet success, but such is not my fate. Is not the above a great injustice to Ireland ? — Yours etc. G. SHAW, Freeholder.

' Mr. Waddell ILL. A., has asked the government to im press upon the police of various country districts the necessity of taking every precaution with a view of preventing the care less use of fire. He has asked that the police should be re quested to warn local residents in the matter, and steps with this end in view have been taken by the government. Mr. Henniker Heaton, who arrived at Adelaide from Eng lund on Tuesday, expressed his regret at ' Australia blocking the way with regard to penny postage.' In every one of the 20,000 post-offices in England, he said, a large notice in black letters exists that tha Id post age in force to every part of the British dominions ...

Open Column. [IVc incite conimttnic/ttunis for this column— but do not hohl ourselves respon sible' for any opinions expressed therein ] THE MAYOR'S ALLOWANCE. (to the editor.) Sir — A writer in the last issue of your contemporary, signing himself ' In terested,' draws attention to the amount of money that has been voted to the Mayor for expenses during the year. With the object of assisting ' Interested,' as I am fully in accord with him, I may point out that from the time the Mayor first took office he lias been rather an expensive item to the ratepayers, and that his al lowances considerably exceed £100. Notwithstanding the fact that he un bossomed himself somewhat to this effect, ' Well, gentlemen, I must thank you for voting me an allowance, but I shall not touch one penny ofit. I canget along very well without it.' Sub sequent events have proved how much reliance was to be placed on the state ment. But wait ! It shall not be long, for the ratepayers are waking to the fact that...

A Bold Offer. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900
A Bold Offer. The present is undoubtedly an age of enterprise, and that Australia is not behind in commercial energy and progress is evidenced by the offer now being made bv Messrs. Upton & Co., who, in order to give every householder in New South Wales an opportunity of testing the superiority of their Marvel Soap Powder over all other brands will forward six (6) packets of same, carriage paid and free of all charge, to any and eve ry lady who furnishes them with the name and address of any storekeeper in the locality who does not stock this miracle-working article. No one who has made a statistical study of the population of the colony will deny that this is a very bold offer, but so confident are the proprietors that anybody who once uses Upton's Mauvhl Soap Powder will never use any other that the consideration of present expenditure is completely outweighed by the certainty of future success. The offer applies to all classes, and will it is sincerely to be hoped, be the...

HOUSKKEEPKR TIPS FOR HOUSEWIVES. Cockroaches may be exterminated hy scattering powdered bow x in their haunts. Wicker Chairs, when soiled, should be scrubbed with strong brine.

Salary of the Governor-General. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900
Salary ol' (lie governor General. The Commonwealth Consti tution Act provides that the salary of the Governor-General -(fAii.str.ilia is to lie I' 1 0,00(1 a year. Recently, however, the Seeretarv of Slate for the Colonies drew the attention of the Governments of the states to the l'act that till such time as the federal capital was built the Governor-General would have to maintain two residences — one at Sydney and the other at Melbourne. This was evi dently not contemplated when the Federation Convention fixed the salary at L 1.0,000, and it was asked, as that sum would be insufficient for the re- 1 quirements of Lord Hopetoun J in maintaining the two estab- j , lislnnents, that the colonies should'* combine in providing £10,000 additional to bring the salary up to .£20,000, so that the extra expense of maintain ing a Government-house at Sydney and one at Melbourne might be met by the states, and not come out of the private income of the GovernorGener al. It was suggested that the...
Railway—Hay and Deniliquin [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 24 December 1900
ItailiViiy— liny ami Dcnifiqiiiu Mr Jamieson writing to the ' Pastoral Times ' a short time ago, says : — The local Council has on two occasions discussed the ques tion of railway connection with Svdnev. A reauest from the Hay Railway League, for the construction of a line from that towntoDeniliquin, was refused by a very narrow result, and a like intimation urging support for the extension of the line from Jerilderie, was approved of by the Council on the cast ing vote of the Mayor. . . . The seconder of the resolution, in supporting the last proposal said that the subject of connec tion would open up ' splendid lauds ' between here and Jeril derie. ... I am generally given credit for having a fair knowledge of the Crown lands in this immediate district, and. I may say that I am practically and theoretically acquainted with the lands that a line from here to Jerilderie would affect or pass through, and I unhesi tatingly say that, with the ex ception of one or two small isolated por...
