ST. SAVIOUR'S CATHEDRAL, SOUTHWARK. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 8 May 1908
SAVIOUR'S CATHEDRAL, S OUTHWARK, Southwarlc Cathedral, the anniver ary of which was celebrated recently, can claim a romantic connection with many British poets and dramatists ; .and Shakespeare's youngest brother, tnund, a player, was buried there. It . was'not, however, a very safe-resting-" place, an&lt;j possesses:some sordid aasoc' ations. Among other burlal-gTaundd at tached to "St"/Saviour's- Church-as u was then called-was one known as the "Cross-Bones," from'a ghastly ombJem . over the' gateway.' In- the vestry minutes for 1786 It is recorded of the ; "Cross-Bones" that some persons had i dug up the bodies burled there and sold ' them for dissection. The chief culprit proved to be the sexton of St. Saviour's, who was supposed to bo In the pay of Guy's Hospital. It Is the privilege of youtli to .regard tho atmosphere as eternally In sympathy with the most desirable garment In your WMtirobQt-"WftflatnQi"

ROUGHING IT. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 8 May 1908
HOUGHING IT. A glance at the August magazines. (observes a writer In the "Westminster . Gazette") gives one the impression £hat. modern man does not know what he wants or what amuses him, otherwise he would not require so many hundred paragraphs of advice on what to do with the holidays. The actor's preference for going to see somcono else act; the countryman's lllclng for a long day ln.a; tightly-packed railway carriage ; and tho Londoner's delight in half an hour's sail on the sea, and Us resultant mal-de mer, are so familiar that they hardly seem strange. Ono of the oddest amuse ments on .record was the pastime with which Peter' tho Great beguiled his lei euro, time at Evelyn's house at Deptfordi. The diarist was justly proud of his holly, hedge, and Peter adapted it to tho Inter ests of sport by sitting In a wheelbar row and, making; a servant charge witiv him Into the hedge, as; hard as ho could go.

The Immense number of orders for FROOTOIDS sent by post direct to the Proprietor Is convincing proof that the Public appreciate their splendid curing power. They cure «&ulckly, are elegant in appearance, and pleasant to take. "I am writing to you to express my thanks for the Frootoids which I received from you some time ago.

FASHIONABLE WEDDINGS. ROYALTIES PRESENCE. COMPLIMENTS PAID. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 8 May 1908
FASHIONABLE WEDDINGS. ROYALTIES ' FIIESENCE. COMPLIMENTS PAID. The presence of Royal personages nt a fashionable wedding, gives as It were the crowning glory to the bride and her gratified relations. This matter of attendance of what may be called Inti mate and solemn functions - notably christenings and weddings - Is quite outside etiquette. No great noble, how ever exalted in rank, has any right to expect to number a prince or princess of the Roynl blood among his wedding guests; on the other hand, nn untitled lady or gentleman' connected with the Court is frequently so honored. Yet another point: the presence of Royalty at a coming wedding Is kept very quiet; it Is never officially announced, and the matron who boasted that her daugh ter's marriage was to be so graced would probably flud her fond expecta tions disappointed nt the last moment. A ROYAL COMPLIMENT TO ERIN. When present at a marriage. Royal personages always discard even the deepest family mourning. This was seen on ...

A.nd he had. a baby of three months, a girl, of whom he would talk to every body ho met until they stopped him. The baby was a morsel of pink, rather moist humanity, wrapped In wool and , flannel and cambric and lace. Its cradle was tho shrine of the house.

AGAINST INSANITY. PROPOSED CRUSADE. A DOCTOR'S GIFT. A gift of L30.000, offered by Dr Henry Maudsley, of 12 Queen street, Mayfair, the well-known, specialist in mental disease, towards the establishment of a hospital for the treatment' of mental diseases, was on 18th February accepted by the council, which passed a resolu tion of thanks to Dr Maudsley..

(2) Researchwork into the cause and prevention of Insanity. ' J * i- (3)'Educatlonalwork; a medical 'school for the training of students In the treat ment of insanity.

SAVED BY EDISON. STRUGGLING WITH A Fit ANTIC WOMAN. , $tr John F. Randolph, for mora than fifteen years, tho right-hand man of BEr Edison, tho great inven tor, committed suicide this morning (17th February) in a fit of melan cholia, due, it is supposed, to over work. After writing notes of fare well to 'his wife and the inventor, Mr Randolph went down into a cellar and blew out his' brains. No sooner was the tragic news telephoned to Mr Edison than, with extraordinary prescience, he jumped into a motor-car and drove at break neck speed to the home of his assist ant. He was just in time to see Mrs Randolph, who is the mother of three children, run upstairs to a top story window, with her clothes torn to shreds, and shrieking in frenzied grief. Moaning "Oh, John, John, I'll kill mj'self, too," the poor wo man 'sprang to* the sash. ,But Mr Edison, - who had run after her, caught her by the waisp us 'she was about to throw herself to the flag stones below.

Land Board. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 8 May 1908
Land Board. A Local Laud Board was held at MuKvala on Monday of last week, and continued on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Board comprised Messrs J. "T., Keating (chairman) and A. H. Bray. The following is a resume of the business trans acted . - . Application for special lease, No. 1908-87, 320 acres, for grazing, in the parish of Colladidda, County of Denison, ruade by Alfred Hay, should be recommended for approval or otherwise. The Board found that consideration of the lease in volved the question as to whether the travelling stock and camping reserve are required or should be thrown open for settlement. They, as at present constituted, could not euter into this question, as Mr Bray, the only member of the Boajid avail able, is a member of the Corowa Pastures Protection Board, in which district the reserves are situated. They therefore postponed the case to the next sitting of the Board at Jerilderie. In the meantime the circumstances should be freel> placed before the Corowa Past...

SHENT SHIPYARD. PATHOS AT LAING'S, EFFORTS TO KEEP GOING. It is a melancholy spectacle which tfie once thriving1 shipyard of Sir James &lt; Lalng and Sons at Sutherland presents to-day (15th February). In place "of being the hive of 3000 busy workmen toll ing amid the incessant hammer and clang, all is deserted and silent, or nearly so, and the, forest of cranes and the punching and riveting machines are idle and.stlll. Outside are to be seen groups of the men who are waiting the time when it is hoped work will bq resumed, but mean time they and their families are suffer ing from want. Charity has come to .their aid, and a pathetic sight yesterday were the hundreds of children emerging from-the British Workrrjan-an institu tion established by Lady Lalng just outside the principal gates of the yard..
