MR. W. DAVIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 3 March 1905
KB. W. DAVIB. Some months ago, Mr. W. Davis, of Goulburn, gave some phonographic entertainments in and around Queanbeyan in aid of the hospitals and other chanties, and I believe the ef fort met with a good response. Now, I learn that Mr. Davis is thinking of making another tour through this district with an improved 'phone, the object being the same as the last. Mr. Davis is well-known — and favorably known, too — as the one-time owner of Gungahleen and Gininderra ; and, although over 26 years absent, still has a leaning towards old associa tions, and a warm place in his heart for old friends. I have not the least doubt that should he come again, his generous entertainments will be well patronised.
TRAVELLER FOR 4000 YEARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 3 March 1905
TRAVELLER FOR 4000 YEARS. KKjpt is a land where the traveller is cni - tly tempted tu assiga to a hoar antiijuily tbe oiigiu.of tho customs which he sec* felill in vogne. When the wild Nubiad boatmen bare conquered the ruining waters, and bring their boat safely into quiet streams above or below the rapids, Ihoy break out into the refrain, ' Babi salain;! Babi sa'aani !' (' Cataract, hail !') Ono cannot help imagining the sailors of Userteen or Ranues apologising for their history over difficulties and dangers of the passage by this salute to the personified gate from Egypt to Nubia. So I have ssen*the owner of a farm at Thebes encouraging his reapers towards evening. -nut by serving out beer, but by singing to them and playing his accompaniment on a rude mandolin. The Btatue of otemnon was looking down upon him, as I suppose it had looked down on similar songs for 400 years.

URIARRA. SCHOLASTIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 3 March 1905
CRIARRA. From our Correspondent. SCHOLASTIC. Our half-time school, so report says, is shortly to be removed to a more central position, which will largely increase the attendance, probably suffici ently so to meet the require ments of a full-time school. In which case it 'will prove a boon to the parents and a blessing to the 3'oungsters.

Political & Economic. SOCIALISM DEFINED. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 3 March 1905
Ii^^jl^^I 60CIA1IBM DEFINED. \Vhen Karl Marx, Cardinal Man ning, and Johann Most, Prince Bis marck, Kugene V. Debs, Edward Bellamy, and Professor Ely are called Socialists, it is time that we ask what Socialism means. If they are' all Socialists, Socialism means anything or nothing:, and .the use of the word throws more darkness than light. What is the correct use of the werd ? * * * There is no dispute among in formed people. As Sidney \Veb'n has pointed out, not to know is metfely intellectual laziness. Tbe modern lexicons, the encyclopedia, the scholars, the authorities, Social ists themselves are agreed as to what Socialism is. Those who have introduced confusion into the use of the word are the sentimentalists on the one hand, who would call any body who has a kind heart a Social ist, and sensationalists, on the other band, who identify Socialism with any kind of social revolution. So cialism, to informed people, is nei ther the one nor the other, neither a vague dream of love ...

f Passing notes. E'OTUS.'$ After all Mr. Carruthers' protests concerning the Brad don Blot when 3ie Federal Draft Bill was before the people, lie is now desirous that the Blot shall be retained ; and we are still to go on raising £ 4 for every £ 1 we require, be cause that is the easiest way to get taxes out of the public pocket; and although Joseph of Kogarah is in favor of direct taxation, he wouldn't think of attempting to legislate it into existence. * * * ~ ' A Casual ' writes : — £0 in consequence of ' un fbrseen circumstances ' we were not honored with a visit from our M.L.A. — a visit so long promised, and so fre quently postponed.

C^» SELECTED VERSE. j»J WORLD-KAKEBB. Hear tlie wliisper ofliopelcss tilings in this time of the twilight pale, Told by the tongues that cling to the wings of the drowsy eastern gale, Sobbing the story of broVen life, beaten against the dust, Of eyes that dry in the lonely years and lips set hard to the crust. Come out, oh heart, from your drowsiness^ and know of tbe hearts that beat The march of the dead in the milking shed, to the clatter of creaking feet. 'Tis a long, long way in a cruel day over a hopeless track. — And this is the word of the drivingwriud, the cry of tlie man out-back. There came a lie in his golden youth ; full blooded and fair he went, Anddrove his strength on the eastern hills, and dreamed in the midnight tent. The whistling guns fell back at the stroke, Hie slab roof dared the sun, TiU tlie strong soul smiled in the summer bush for a weary work welt done ; He took her away from the olden home te the roof on the chestnut rise, And side by side thro' the hard ...
