WaugooIa Shire. The usual monthly-meeting of the above tool; place on Saturday last. Present:- Crs Sloan (president), Fa- gan, Smallacombe, and Purcell. Cr. Purcell. With your permissiion Mr President I would like to move   before commencing the business of the meeting that a letter of condolence be forwarded to Mrs Glasson, sympathis- ing with herself and children in the death of our late colleague. The late Councillor Glasson had only been with us for a few months, and during that time he had taken a great interest in the working of the Shire. By his de- cease the Council had lost a good re-   presentative, and I regret very much that he was called away so suddenly.       The blow was a severe one to the Council and I sympathise, as we all   do very much indeed with the widow and family in their heavy affliction. The motion was seconded by Cr. Fa- gan and carried in silence by the Councillors rising in t...

Lockwood District. PROGRESSIVE FARMERS. (BY OUR REPRESENTATIVE). [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 18 February 1910

Lockwood District.     PROGRESSIVE FARMERS. (BY OUR REPRESENTATIVE). So much has been written from time to time of the magnificent land in the Canowindra district, which in-   cludes that fertile area known as the Lockwood district, and its capabilities   in the way of wheat production are so well known that there seems little need to again refer to this matter. Still the land is suitable for growing many other crops which have received little prominence, and the methods adopted by farmers to get the best results from the soil are all matters which concern the up-to-date farmer and justify reference in these columns. To get a splendid view of prosper- ous looking farms one only has to pay a visit to Lockwood district, where     there are dozens of model homes one would not meet with in many parts of the State, and the fact that the results have been accomplished by the owners under great disadvantages in the way of transit faciliti...

AN OXFORD EPISODE WHERE GREEK MEETS GREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 25 February 1910

AN OXFORD EPISODE WHERE GREEK MEETS GREEK. The shades of Euripides and Soph ocles were gently progressing, in their own misty, iambic way, down the High street of the University town of Oxford. They felt fond of the town, for there, more than in ma'dcrn Athens, they found them selves held in -.honor and respect. And yet there were some things that .puzzled them. , , „ "I went to the theatre last night, said Euripides, slowly, "to see whe ther the plays they were acting wero yours' or mine. The stage, decked I out in a way highly repulsive to a I man of taste, was occupied by the vagaries of the 'Mother's bister o one 'Charley.' It was more unseem ly than anything written - even by Aristophanes." "And yet," said Sophocles, I am told that my plays,,at any rate, are largely read hero." .

ENGLAND'S DOOM. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 25 February 1910

ENGLAND'S DOOM. Nothing is left to the English but their maritime predominance. But that is being cut into on both sides. On the' one hand. lOngland is too small, a country, its inhabitants too small a people, to support the bur den of sea-power in the future. On the other jiand, several rivals now surpassing England in territory, population, and wealth, are bending i themselves to assort their equality, if' not. tin deed, their superiority, at I the expense of the English suzerainty i nt sea. and ultimately by its oyer (Jirow.— -"Kiv.uy.
