Dreadnoughts. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 1 May 1909

Dreadnoughts. The following extracts are from ' ' The1 Congreg-ationalist, ' and are as sensible as anything we, have seen on the subject :—- ' 'There is one expression that is being perpetually used in this ' Dreadnought' business which it will be our wisdom to avoid. It is the word 'supremacy.' The word is irritating to other nationalities, and it is unnecessary. If we understand the situation, aright, the contention of English statesmen is that the action of the Kaiser and his advisers is difficult to reconcile. 1X71 'Hi 1'l 1 C t'\1-/~vrfc»c}c-a/-1 -fi-i /^«t r\ 1 -I it qco n »?»/-! 1i.!o constant assurance that he means no ill to our country. Our reply, which is not so much a reply to his words as his .actions, is that the safety and integrity of the British Empire depends on its capacity, its being adequate to defend her over-sea domain. Our Dreadnoughts, if necessary, are coaly necessary for the purpose of self-defence, but we may surely say that without using so, irritating ...

Dingoes and Sheep. — A Fable. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 1 May 1909

Dingoes and Sheep. - A Fable. Once upon a time, when the world was younger than it is now, a great flock of sheep were' feeding on rich and abundant pastures spreading far and wide over hill and dale and plain. Though there seemed to be nothing to disturb the sweet serenity of the scene, the sheep suddenly began to rush wildly along and gathered into a closely packed cluster, as is the habit of sheep when startled. Some of them had caught sight of a number of strange animals speeding rapidly towards them, and they all watched until the strangers drew near, and their leader asked, ' What has alarmed you ? Have you espied any danger ? ' The sheep answered, ? J.M1 U1IC IllJ^llL WC JlclYC ilCcllU VUlCCh IlUWJlJlg JOT blood, and we feared ye were enemies coming to slav us. Who are ye, and wherefore do ye come ?' ' We are friends,' answered the strangers, ' we are Native Dingoes, and we came to protect you from the starving foreign wolves whose bowlings you have heard, and who are eager t...

The Dreadnought Fund. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 1 May 1909

The Dreadnought Fund. A public meeting convened by the Mayor (Aid. James) was held in the Council Chambers on Friday evening, 23rd ultimo. The meeting was attended by a representa tive gathering of citizens including the following gentlemen : the Ma}^or (chair man), Capt. Hicks, Aldermen Kitch, Dash, Davies, Bronger, Pannell, and Messrs. Dunn, Craig, Jenkins, and the Town Clerk, Mr. McQuinan. 1 lie business or tne evening commenced by the Town Clerk reading the Lord Mayor's appeal. The chairman said that lie thought it the duty of every Katoomba resident to do all in their power to assist this Dreadnought movement. As we, the people of Australia, had neither the men or the money for a navy of our own, it behoved us as dependants of Great Britain to do all in our power to assist the Mother Country, as that is the only power we can depend upon for protection. It was absolutely impossible, he said, for Australia to build a Dreadnought of her own to present to Tine Turku Sistkrs, Katoom...

?-; ? ? o With Eczema on Arm and Legs Could Scarcely Sleep for Months — Tried Many Treatments With out Result—Did Not Work for 11 Weeks—Relieved in Ten Days and '.'COMPLETELY CURED BY TWO SETS OF CUTICURA ^'My trouble began with irritation on fcho legs and right arm which developed §into eczema. It be came so bad in a few weeks' time that I was in perfect ageny. I was pre vented from attend ing work, and, al though I was only too pleased to try remedies suggested by my friends, they were all used with out any effect. I became pessimistic, especially so con sidering that I had been through the hands of two doctors, who failed to do any good. One day I decided to make another attempt to get rid of my com plaint and purchased a full set of Cuti cura Soap, Cuticura Ointment, and Cuticura Pills, and in ten days I found the irritation disappearing. I would not have believed it possible for any remedy to afford such comfort in so short a time. I was able to sleep at ni.^ht — a thing 'which...

The Romance of an Uncrowned Queen. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 1 May 1909

The Romance of an Uncrowned Queen. I have said the romance, but in truth there is matter for a score of romances in the story of the unfortunate Princess who was married against her will to the first of our Hanoverian Kings, and who paid for her encouragement of a love passion of her youth with thirty years' solitary confine ment in the gloomy Castle of Ahlden. I suppose there is something to be said in favor of the prac tice of denying Royalties a freedom of choice in the matter of their marriages. A Sovereign, it must be conceded, is not free to consult his own wishes when they clash with his obligations to his I j! that one of these obligations is to marry within , |j the Royal caste. The family to which the reign |; ing monach belongs is regarded as something J; separate and apart ; if it were not so, if the I !? barriers which are interposed between Sovereign j i; and subject were broken down, and the hereditary \\\' King were no further removed from his fellows ] ;; than an el...

A Conference of Teachers. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 1 May 1909

A Conference of Teachers. The usual monthly meeting- of the Iyith g*ow Teachers' Association was held in the Superior Public School Katoomba, on Saturday last.. As this was the first occasion that' the Association had met at Katoomba, there was a good deal of specu lation as to the wisdom of departing from their usual custom of meeting at L,ithgow ; but the very large gathering of teachers, miles, proves the popularity of Katoomba as a meeting place and ensures that many such conferences will be held at this town in the future. About 50 teachers attended from various parts of the Blackheath dis trict. Apart from the usual business transacted on such occasions, there was an added interest in the fact that Mr. Murray, Inspector of Schools, had promised to deliver an address on ' The teaching of English,'.' and this, no doubt, helped to swell the attendance considerably. Mr. Murray, who presided, in declaring the meeting open, expressed his delight at meeting so large a gathering of te...

Varia. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 1 May 1909

Varia. ?Trade Unions.1 — It is almost universally ad mitted that trade unions are the lineal descendants of the old English Guilds, especially of Craft Guilds. In the reign of Henry VIII these guilds were suppressed. Towards, the end of the 18th century, the trade union was instituted in a more or less crude form, but similar in many respects to those now in existence. The earlier history of trade unions is one long record of repression'. L/ike the guilds, they were suspected of being opposed to public policy, they were regarded, as combinations, in restraint ot trade, as the supporters of industrial monopoly, and as. dangerous, associations which ought to be suppressed. The policy of persecution was reversed in 1824. But the then legal recognition did not afford them legal protection. They were protected by the Trade Union Act in 187.1. The unions were extremely active from .1824 to 1828, and again in 1833-34, and again in 1847-48 In the British colonies the best unions in the worl...

How to Win a Woman. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 1 May 1909

How to Win a Woman. The lover' who is quick totakeoffen.ee, and who loves to stand on his masculine dignity, is pretty certain to come to grief. Let, him, when he sets out on his campaign, make some decision akin to this: ' I will abuse niyself. I will, 'if necessary,, let her trample on me. I will cheerfully lick the dust from her shoes. I will endure if she 1 hold me up to ridicule of the world . I will feast on, humble pie to please her, and, like Oliver Twist, ask for more. ' Hope is omnipresent. We are born in hope ; we pass our childhood in hope; we are governed by hope through the/whole course of, our lives ;. in ' our last moiiients hope is-lstill with us ; and not till the beat - ingof the heart shall cease will this benign influence depart. He : ' I suppose it would be a great trial to you if our engagement was broken off ? ' She : ' You bet it would — a great breach of promise trial.'

The Queen of Spain's Bouquet. ; There is rather a good story of the Queen of Spain when she was Princess Eua of Batten burg.' . ? It is customary, when any member of the Ro3'al family has a birthday, to lay a bouquet of her favourite flowers beside her plate at the breakfast table. Princess Ena, who was born in Scotland, laughingly declared one day that she thought the thistle- a lovely flower. So on her next birthday her brothers procured a large bunch of thistles and put them by her plate. But the Princess, suspecting mischief of some sort, slipped down early and when the young Princes arrived at the breakfast table they found chopped thistles and vine gar on their plates, labelled 'A treat for donkeys.' .

Kettles Which Sing. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 1 May 1909

Kettles Which Sing. The Japanese, who know so well how to add little unexpected attractions to every day life, manufacture iron tea-kettles which sing when the water boils. Their song may not be a very perfect melody, but, at any rate, it is quite as agreeable to hear as the notes of some of the insects treasured by the Trmnnpftf1 frir their 11111 «ir The harmonious sounds of these singing kettles are produced by steam bubbles ? escaping from beneath thin sheets of- iron, which are fastened together nearly at the bottom of the kettle. Some skill is re quired in regulating the fire to produce the best effect, and kettles of different shapes give forth different sounds. The singing kettles of Japan are no novelty, but have been in use for centuries. Charity does not cover a multitude of sins. It reveals a multitude of. virtues. Conse quently we may in any case be absolutely' sure of this — that there is nothing which a high-placed ? man of the world who was really hiding some worldly ...

How Sir John Fisher Would Fight. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 1 May 1909

How Sir John Fisher Would Fight. The part played by Sir John Fisher as one of Great Britain's representatives to the Hague Peace Conference is gradually becoming known. The polite gentlemen at the House in the Wood were debating as to how war might be conducted with as little pain and inconvenience as possible when Sir John broke in with the way in which he would fight his sea battles. Those who were there have given some suggestion of the effect his words pro rhirr-wl Mr-Mi unt 1i«tf»iiincv wi1'1i 1'-l«nr»1iprl fnrpt;' with horror in their eyes, and at the end a shudder ran round the room. ', It was said to be the most dreadful and appal; ling picture of war ever drawn by human mind. And this frightful and awful picture, which whitened the faces of those soldiers and sailors, was drawn by an open, frank-faced man speaking' quietly and pleasantly, with a straightforward smile in his round boyish-looking eyes ! Those who have served under Sir John Fisher at sea know how he would cond...
