THE RECENT MINISTERIAL RAILWAY INSPECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 29 March 1884
THE RECENT MINISTERIAL RAIL WAY INSPECTION. The following 'particulars, extracted from tlio Syd ney Morning Herald, with reference to the Picton, . Mittagpng, Bowral, Moss Vale, and Murulan rail way stations, will, no doubt, be of interest to many of our renders:— At Ticton the district officers of the Sydnay sec tion loft, and those for the lines between Picton and Harden joined the party. The principal require ment at Picton was an additional siding for shunt ing purposes. Picton, it appears, is an important changing station, trains coming-here being broken up—that is an engine can haul about double the lonrl from Sydney to Picton than it can from Picton outwards up the P»ig Hill. In consequence a great deal of shunting is necessary, and additional siding and yard room is required. To supply these wants, however, is a difficult matter, as Picton lies in a cutting, and on tho edge of a gradient of I to 40. White here a farmer loading hay at the station waited upon the Minister with...

jlclcci fjaetrj). YE YEARS 'Tin but the ghost of a feeling, 'Tiij but the ghost of a sinila ; Goui?. is the true light revealing, : This but a shadow tho while. Tluw.shall each ro$e4iu tod vision Fade 'tis the leaves iu the Fall, , Loaviug it may be derision Casting a gleam o'er tho pall. Years glide along without number, Swift as a wiutl-driven wave, Hiding away in its slumber Much we would struggle to save. . Taking tho bloom from the roses, Taking the down from the peach ; Leaving tho thorn from tho posies, Leaving the ashes of each. Bringing the end of our dreaming, Hounding the sphere of pur life, Tinting with shades of new meaning, Harshness ot pain or of strife. Waking our souls from dolus ion. Chasing tho shadows that throng ; Piercing the veil of illusion, Righting full many a wrong. Scattering the falso that would oluster Only when fortune is fair; Shrining with ever more lustre Love that all danger would dare. Testing the true from the faithless. Tearing the mask from dec...

A GIRL WORTH LOVINGt It was Autumn ; the ovo of a great review of German troops at Berlin, in the year 180—. 'l'ho setting sun was gilding tlie eaves of houses at W—, a small village near tlio capital,. and tinting afresh the heart-shaped liadon leaves which the past season had painted with colors of red and gold. The villagers, as was their custom of an afternoon* were seated beside their doors, —the men smoking and drinking beer or detestable wine from tall red or blue glasses; their wives and daughters knitting, singing, or talking with that volubility which is a distinguishing characteristic of the German fair ones. Amongst the pedestrians whose presence in the thoroughfare under notioe attracted more than ordinary notice from the matrons and maidens whose occupations we have referred to, was one Curl Berstien, a young officer of dragoons, whose tall manly form and pleasant faco oaused many hearts to flutter at balls and villago merry makings.
