"The Deserted Village?" To the Editor "Wollondilly Press." [Newspaper Article] — The Wollondilly Press — 5 May 1906
" Tlie Beserte l Village?" To the Editor "Y/ollocdiily Preai." Sin,—English and other visitors have been hoard to remark that Bowral was the prettiest and cleanest country town in Now South Wales. I aw afraid if the same parties were to revisit Bowral say 6 months henoo, under tho present muuioip 1 regime, 4hoy would alter their opinion. What with the footpaths broken up, the principal stroet in holes—a dumping ground for rubbish, and eventually an accumulated manure heap, the plaee may well he named "The Deserted Village."

What is an Amateur? [Newspaper Article] — The Wollondilly Press — 5 May 1906
What is an Amateur ? A correspondent writes " The mem bers of the Agricultural Society are.evi dently considerably divided as to the meaning of " Amateur."'1 The idea, when .framing the'prize schedule, was evidently jto encourage "the small grower to compete, and to keep, out the professional. The term " Amateur" is, therefore, quite cor rect, for,aoV Amateur " is "A lover of .any particular pursuit, art, or science, but not engaged in it professionally." Should :our worthy doctor (who had something to sa^ on the'matter at the last meeting), be .obliged to follow say, vegetable growing for a living, he would not be an •'■'. Amateur;'1 but a novice; that is "One who js new or inexperienced or unskilled in any business ; a beginner." He, how ever; if he ,has a liking for gardening as an exercise or pastime, may cultivate vegetables or flowers as an "Amateur." In the case at present undecided by the council of the association, as far as the evidence' has appeared, and considering ihe p...
