Special Rate for Tocumwal [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 22 May 1908
Special Rate for Tocum wal In the near future a special rate may be levied on the improved value of our township property, and it therefore behoves ratepayers to carefully consider what it will mean to them individually. At the last meeting of the council the president moved that a rate of one penny in the £, be struck on the improved value of all township property in Berrigan, which if car ried would be the means of realis ing an amount of ^191 13s, in ad dition to the rate on the unim proved valuation which is a total for the township of ,£55. In will no doubt be agreed that for a place like Berriean to contribute the small amount of .£55 to the funis of the council, is too low, but to increase the rate to four times that amount is perhaps too much, keeping in view the fact that the townspeople have to pay. the whole of the sani tary rate, and also the prospect and hope of having to pay a tax for water supply. Cr Reynoldson in supporting the motion, remarked that at one time he wa...

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 cute quickly, are elegant in appearance, and pleasant to take. "I am writing to you to express my thanks for the Frootoid3 which I received from you some time ago.

VERY INFORMATIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 22 May 1908
VERY INFORMATIVE. The chief clerk of the Post Office de partment at "Washington recently sent to all the postmasters in the country a list of questions .asking for certain in formation to bo used in the preparation of the Government Blue-book. . One of tlio questions in the list was, "What are your marital relations?" The object of this particular ques tion was to find out whether the post masters are married, single, "widowed or divorced. But some of the rural postmasters did not understand, and many answers were received in which the persons ad dressed endeavoured to give a clear and lucid explanation of the status of their married life. One postmaster briefly stated that his domestic affairs were "Fine and dandy." Another, not so fortunate, replied, "Fairly middling," while a third filled in the blank space with two words, "The worst."

MORE TO THE POINT. Gounod, who had a keen sense of fun, was onco overwhelmed; by the en thusiasm of a young music-mad English girl who had been presented to him. "Oh, I am lost for words to express my admiration for the great composer of 'Faust,' " she said. "Inspired mu sician, gonitis, mighty master, what shall I call you?" "Throw your arms round my neck," he gaily advised, "and call mo your little rabbit." The best tiling to givo your enemy is forgiveness; to an opponent, toler ance; to a friend, your heart; to your | child, a good oxamplo; to a father, I deference; to a mother, conduct that will make her proud of you; to your Rolf, respect; to all men* charity.

AVALANCHE DISASTER. SWISS HOTEL DESTROYED. TWELVE PERSONS KILLED. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 22 May 1908
AVALANCHE DISASTER. SWISS HOTEL DESTROYED. TWELVE PERSONS KILLED. Considerable damage and loss of life was caused yesterday evening' (wrote the Brigue correspondent of the London "Daily News" on 1st March) at the vil lage of Goppenstein, situated at tho Ivoetechberg tunnel, by an avalanche. The hotel was recently built at tho southern entrance to the tunnel, and the offices of tho Loetschberg works collapsed. The destroyed buildings did not'lie in the path of the avalanche, but were literally hurled down by the displace ment of air caused by tho fall of the enormous mass of snow. This displacement of. air frequently does more damage than the avalanche itself. A remarkable demonstration of this phenomenon was furnished In 1895, when a mass, 4,000,000 cubic metres jn bulk, fell from the Altels Glacier, near Kandersteg, into the valley beneath. Tho woods, chalets, and houses on the opposite side of tho valloy were all swopt away by the rush of air caused by the huge fall. Tho Goppenste...
THE HOUSEWIFE. WOMEN'S CRITICISM OF WOMEN. THE CLEANLINESS QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 22 May 1908
THE HOUSEWIFE. WOMEN'S CRITICISM OF WOMEN. THE CLEANLINESS QUESTION. F. P. Elmes writes, in tho "Dally News" of 6th March:- . "No," she says, flrmly; "nothing will over convince me that those automatic sweepers arc equal to a good spring cleaning. It stands to reason that there Is nothlns like getting the. carpets right up and tolclng out all tho furniture." "But," argues tho meek believer In new methods, "it can be proved that tho machine finds moro dirt than tho broom, and, further, it does not just disperso dirt here, there,' and everywhere; it sucks it all up so that it can bo de stroyed." The housewife sniffs. "The broom and duster axe good enough' for me," I she says. *1 daresay this aspirator I 'thing Is all very well, but I would never ' bo satisfied that my house was really clean unless I had done It my own way. New-fangled methods aTo for lazy, people who are afraid of work." Is anyone in the world quite so con eervative as the housewife? No won der we have such a staunch ...
GOLDEN EAGLE IN KIRKCUDBRIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 29 May 1908
COLDEN EAGLE IN KIRKCUD BRIGHT. A fine specimen of this magnificent bird, aquilla chrysaetus, was ." lately shot on an estate in Soutlnvick, Kirk cudbrightshire (writes a correspondent of the "Scotsman). It measured 3 feet in the body, and stretched 6 fcoi 3 inches from tip to tip of the wii/gs. It was almost in perfect plumage, having: attained its tlurd year. The. feathers were tawny coloured, with. grfcyVunder the surfaces, while on the crown of the head and neck they were of a gc/jden brown, frojfa which the name is-derived. Usually the feathers get darker-as the bird grows older, and from this fact,' no doubt, the golden eagle is known in parts of Scotland as the "black eagle." The head was large and woll developed, and the beak of the usual aquiline or der. The feet were yellow, with the characteristic prehensile faculties, which do much to make the bird awk ward while on the ground, but perfect in its powers of seizing its prey, and holding on to mountain crags. The bird is n...

They.were going t}lc theatre, and had ten minutes to> catch their train. Presently a sparkle came into his eve, ancj he fished a pencil and paper from his pocket. That kind of man always has a pencil and paper, oven in his evening etathes. 1 "Do you know," he said presently, lookrng up at his wife, who hadjfinish ed adjustinyr her hat, "that I .".figure, basing my figures on observation, that a girl from six to ten.spends an aver age of seven minutes a day before her mirror;.from ton to fifteen, a quarter of an hour ; from fifteen to twenty, twenty two minutes.

UNDER PROHIBITION Thirty-three Million Citizens. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 29 May 1908
UNDER PROHIBITION Thirty-thrco Million Cltlzons, It may interest those who arc_ agitat ing;- for or against proposed temper ance reforms., to consider how things stand in America so far as the drink question, is'concerned. A. regular campaign against alcohol has been organised and maintained there for years. Thirty-three millions .of. American citizcns to-day live under prohibition laws, these taking chiefly the form-of local option. it appears to be the growing will of the people that each community shall decide for itself whether or;not alcoholic prinks shal'l be publicly sold within itf»- terri tory. While the total population ~h'ns been multiplied by two and a half, the number' affected by prohibition;has been multiplied'by ten. At that Tate enforced tempcrance for the -nation seems not far off-if indeed it be with: in the power of man to enforce temper- . ancc. The Americans are determined at least to give some' system of State restriction a fair trial. There are .now five Stat...

I'll stick to I mv friend here, Bob M'Grotty,'' imag | ining the name on .the bottle tp be some jocular tit!c given to the wine. To his horror an indignant voice at his side spoke out: "And, ye may wee^r stick to it, sir, and hae all the bottle now, for ifs !:ttle of his a in wine that Bob ^Gritty, as ye call him, has tasted this day."

CURIOUS POINT ABOUT THE PIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 29 May 1908
CURIOUS POINT ABOUT THE PIKE. If the pike is not exactly an amphi bian, it is a good deal nearer being- one than the ordinary loch trout.' It thrives lyery well in the. meanest peat holes | amid the Mils, and has a decided pre ference for stagnant, water. Any mossy tarn without a feeder or outlet suits it admirably, even if there be nothing | more than a series of ooze beds at cer- i tain seasons of the year. Where there ' 1 are.lochs in close proximity among- the hills, the one stagnant,and muddy and t the other with running- water, and. a dear bottom, the first wiSl naturally have pike "in it,. and the second trout and no pike. For years'the writer has tried to observe the habits of pike in a small Highland loch. In spring it may cover a couple of acres, but by mid autumn it dwindles to a few isolated puddles, and when severe frost comes a'il the water seems to be converted in to ice. Unless the pike burrow in the mud then and hibernate, it is difficult' to know' they live. At all...

Death of Mr Hayes, , Al.L.C. It is with feelings of regret that we record the death of the Hon. James Hayes which took place at his residence, Staumore, Sydney, on Sunday morning last. He was in the garden in company with Mrs Hayes, who went inside, leaving her husband for a few moments. Upon her return she found him in a state of collapse 011 the verandah. Drs Abbott and Pockley were im mediately telephoned for, but before they arrived Mr Hayes had breathed his last. He was in comparatively good health right up to the last, and was in the city transacting busi ness on Saturday. The late Mr Hayes, who was 77 years of age, was a native of Cork, Ireland, but became to this country when a boy of six years of age, with his parents. He was educated in a private school near Parmatta, and early in life started in the milling industry. He carried 011 extensive mills in Sydney, Goulburn, Albury, and other places, and his sons suc ceed him to-day in the milling works of Albury. Mr Hayes was a...
