Technical Education. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 22 May 1909

Technical Education. A letter appeared in our last issue over the signature of our local schoolmaster, Mr. Dunne, which every reader should take seriously to heart, for it touches a chord which should vibrate through the whole community . It is satisfactory to know that this most important of all questions- tech nical education— is i making some headway in the great centres of population, and a strong effort is being made to awaken -an interest cases with most woeful results. From many centres comes the same lamentable wail : no interest is taken iii industrial questions. Australians are blamed, and justly so, for devoting their time to sporting matters to the exclusion 'of things intellectual or in dustrial, forgetting or ignoring.. 'the fact that no nation ever yet became' great or ' powerful who worshipped muscle and brawn instead of brain and industry. The decline ? and fall of Rome dated from the time she left the field, and the rostrum for the com bats in the Colosseum. When h...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 22 May 1909

Tlie Salvation Army is established in fifty-two countries and colonies, and preaches the Gospel in thirty-one languages. Japanese lovers frequently give their future brides pieces of beautiful silk, to be worn as sashes, instead of engagement-rings. There are eighty-six annual holi days in Russia. The hide of a cow produces about thirty-five pounds of leather, that of a horse about eighteen pounds. A man's chances of sudden death are eight times as great as a woman's. The baya, or weaver bird, of India, has the curious habit of fastening fireflies to its nest with moist clay. On a dark night such a nest shines with the brilliancy of a small electric lamp.

A Fair Deceiver. ' I know you won t mind, Kdith, will ' you ?' I feel dreadful about j^oing, but its a matter of such importance to Cecil. His aunt is a, perfect erank, an-l she arranges a list of visits that must be carried out like the commands of royalty. . You see, I haven't a head for dates, and I never real ised we were booked to go away the day after your arrival.. But it will only be for two days/ dearest ; and you see how impossible it is for me to get out of it.' Doris Fenn rattled on, and Kdith tried to con ceal her dismay. It was disheartening to have looked forward to two pleasant weeks with an old school friend at her charming country' home; only to begreeted with the intelligence that her hostess was obliged to go away to visit her husband's aunt, and that she was lobe left alone in a strange house. ? 'You will have Man- and cook to look after you, and you can go out on the lake, and every body has promised to call, so: you can't be lonely. And, besides, it is only fo...

Chrysanthemum Dance. lyeap year has left us some time now, but the ladies of Katoomba turned the tables and com menced the season by inviting the gentlemen to a Chrysanthemum Dance in the Masonic Hall on Tuesday evening. , The arrangements were car ried out under the sole control of the ladies and they were rewarded, for their efforts by hearing on all sides that the dance had proved a. thorough success. Miss I/yons had the work of the secre tary in hand and was well backed up by an energetic committee consisting of the Misses. Brown, ?$.' and M. Stout; W. Hicks, Rossiter, Buchanan, Husband and James. Mrs. lyeaney ami. Miss A.

As things- are now, the way is still, open, from, I/inda Falls to. Katoom-. ba Falls, and those who are. wjlling. to neglect the notice of warning can niake a rough passage along the old route from the Bridal Veil, except that there is no possibility of getting through the Tun nel. The Federal Pass is. one of our most favorite' sights, and it would be a great pity for the rumor to spread that the. ' Federal Pass is impassable owing to a landslip.'
