A CLEVER WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 18 January 1902

CLEVER WOMAN. A woman who has, just been arrested in the United States op a charge of for gery must really be a maby-sided genius, for, dressed as a man, she got employed as a carpenter in the repairing of a hotel, and she proved to be so efficient that her services were retained when it vvns pro posed to enlarge the building. She then acted as a plumber, putting in all the plumbing in the new part of the house, and changing that in the old, repapered I the entire house, and painted the outside, built an arbor for a grape vine, and laid the pavement. Finally she was made clerk of the hotel, and when hands ran short she waited, and assisted in the bar ber's shop. Finally the hotel proprietor started a butcher's shop, and she was placed in charge for a time, until "it was deemed necessary to change the butcher's into a barber's, when she became the chief barber, and shaved the patrons.'

R. C. Bazaar at Bowral. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 18 January 1902

R. C. Bazaar at Bowral. For several months past many of our energetic Roman Catholic ladies have been busily engaged in preparations on an elaborate scale for the R.C. bazaar now. being so successfully and. profitably conducted in the Bowral School of Arts in aid of the funds of St. Thomas' Church. The extensive and varied display of articles exhibited on the several stalls j evidenced the fact that busy hands and' •capable minds had been at work. The stalls were not only heavily l^den with goods both ornamental and useful suitable for people of varied ages and sizes, but they also formed a brilliant and an at tractive picture in themselves, the decor ations being of most artistic design, re flecting the highest credit on the ladies and their assistants. In consequence of everything being; so charmingly pretty it needed little else buttbepersuasivenesson the part of the stall-holders to induce the . many to speculate. It may be said that the young ladies were particularly win some i...

NOTES AND COMMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 18 January 1902

NOTES AND COMMENTS. Tbe railways of this stale appear to be !run solely in tbe interests of the Metropo lis, and at the rmuous expense of the country. Compare suburban ' fares with those imposed between country stations. If the city man were oharged as the country man he would have to live over his shop in stead of in a villa'. The dweller in Sydjiey can get each week cheap ticket to last a month, a,t any rate that is only issued to ■people in the country for excursion trains that run once a month and start at iucou venient hours, and. moreover tfie carriages, are full of dead beads such as. linesmen, porters,, and. all sorts of government labor ers who get free ticljets. Nothing more unsatisfactory could-, bo devised, than the present,'policy of the Railway Commission ers towards the country." ' ■ * ' # .. • An instance of the incapacity of the rail way management is afforded by a truck, of blue stone screenings recently niiloacled in Bowral station that came all the way' from Kiam...

The Abyss of the Infinite. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 18 January 1902

Tlie Abyss of the Infinite. By 4 BANKER, On a qlear. night the observer of the star-spangled vault of heaven may detect numerous cloud-like nebulae of varied shape; some apparently globular, some. o{ com etary form,' some in concentric rings, some in perfect ge.o.metri'c design; while many appear as if rent arid cleft asunder by some tremendous stellar, tornado. With a very powerful telescope, it is seen that these strange nebulosities exist right deep down in the very remo test depths of the infinite abyss ; the greatef the penetrating, power of the instrument, the* greater the. number of the. stellar clouds. Now when this powerful instru ment is directed towards any. of the nearer of these nebulae, it is seen that they are clusters of blazing, suns , distmpt groups of stars similar to the. display We. see in the. r midnight sky ; in a word oth.er uni verses,;' Vast, mighty universes, i with constellations like.
