We have the grasshoppers, here to add to the rest of our discomforts. - We are expecting a great day here on the eleventh of this nionth, as Mr.. IT.

USE OF TAILS WHY ANIMALS POSSESS THEM. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 7 January 1911
USE OF TAILS WHY ANIMALS POSSESS THfi.Vt. There does not ex.'st any Obvious answer (says the "Westminster ' Ga zette") to the general question of why animals as a rule should possess a tail of seme sort. Darwin, in whose works one naturally expects to find some | theory concerning the subject, suggests as. the reason that "organs now of | trifling importance have probably in «ome cases been of high importance to an early progenitor, and, after having been slowly perfected at a former period, have been transmitted ,to exist ing specics in nearly the same state, although now of very slight use;" and he continues, "Seeing how important an I organ ot locomotion the tail is in most aquatic animals, its general presence and use for many purposes in so many ;n rid animals, which in their lungs and swim-bladders betray their aquatic ori gin, may perhaps be thus accounted fur. Any change in structure and func tion, which can be effected by small stages, is ivithin the power of natural select...

Law and Lawyers. THE COWRA P.L.L. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 7 January 1911
! ?' La# and Lawyers, j ' x. . . .' * i THE COWRA P.L.L. The Cowra branch of the Political Labor League js greatly exercised concerning the condition of the law, and wants it to be so simplified that anyone could understand all the law, look up the points referring to his own trouble in a handy book of refer ence, and go into, court and put the case through without bothering to employ Mr. Six-and-Eightpence at all. It is a noble ideal, but it is not the only reform that ought to be brought about. There is medical science, for instance, a tedious art, very difficult to . learn,' very difficult to apply. A handy code by which everybody could .cure himself without troubling the local doctor would be just the. thing, and only, k short Act of Parliament would be necessary to effect that reform. Then it is a nuisance having to employ architects, chemists, engineers, accountants, and other skilled persons in order to get various things done. Parliament might codify all thege things, so tha...
