RAILWAY IMPROVEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 14 July 1883
RAILWAY IMPROVEMENTS. Tiie commercial importance of Bowral is evident from tho fact, that the Government have decided to make extensive additions and enlargements on the buildings at pre sent occupied in (lie yard. The principal improvement will be in connection with tho passenger station, which it is found is quite inadequate for the traffic and goneral requirements. The station building will bo enlarged to.a considerable extent, and will probably contain a waiting room for gentle men, a want which is much experienced daring winter months. Tho ladies' waiting room, which now occupies a very unsatis factory position on the platform, will, it is stated, be removed to another portion of tho building, thus rendering tho platform of uniform width the whole length of tho station. It is not yet decided what improve ments are to be added in connection with tho officials' apartments, but it is evident from their size, and the business transacted within them, that they stand much in need of ...
ORIGINAL CONTRIBUTIONS. LEISURE HOURS ON PUBLIC WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 14 July 1883
ORIGINAL CONTRIBUTIONS. LEISURE HOURS ON PUBLIC WORKS. In all tho accounts which appear from timo to time about the public works of the colony, seldom is any reference made to the bone and sinew which is employod in the con struction. When such occurs it is only to express, if not contempt, something border ing on it, for the customary habits of the L11UJ.1) tlicli ol»&lt;vr*4>2* ortrl somotimes brutal conduct. All animadver sión is cast on the weary toiler ; all praise is given to the magnato who may bo in charge of the works ; and yet, rightly viewed, the contractor is to a largo extend responsible for tho miseries resulting from the excossivo use of strong drink. Tho navvy of theso colonics is an entirely differ out individual from tho nawy of the old world. He generally possessos a fair, and in many instances, a superior education ; consequently his general intelligence as a man places him on as good a level as any other class of men in the colony, although by tho arb...

OPEXINÜ OF THE AMí TßttDAM EX (It Ht 'J'ION.

It is iioc.11c.sh to say that many of the courts were not quito ready, hut arrange ments wore made so that all made a very presentable appearance. All the exhibits which had arrived from New South Wale« and Victoria were displayed to the best advantage, and the general opinion was that the exhibition of Australian products was very good and representative in character, particularly as regards raw producís. Precisely at one o'clock the advent of their Majesties was anno...
THE ENGLTSH MINT. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 14 July 1883
THE ENGLTSH MINT. Áriui. .2-1 wíis a day of note at the Royal Mint. For the tirât time after moro than two years tlio process of gold coinage was resumed. It was even remarked that the strong man who pour» the molten stream from crucible to mould, and who holds that post because of his especial skill in direct ing the metal into narrow apertures, with out spilling or waste, showed on this momentous occasion some little signs of nervousness and agitation. For gold coin age on that very day was successfully resumed in reconstructed premisos with new and improved machinery, and it will proba bly be long indeed before there is stich another interruption of the coinage as lias beeil now happily brought to a conclusion. The moment, therefore, is not inopportune for a glance at the ancient and famous establishment. The Mint on Tower Ilill, London, for the last seventy years has been open to the pub lic on very liberal conditions, of which about live thousand only avail themselves each year...
BRIEF MENTION. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 14 July 1883
BRIEF MENTION. This, do : When you have a ;.&lt;ood cow, keep it ; when you hob ft Rood cow, buy it ; when you Imvo a poor cow soli it. Quick growths ave the host in the production of corn, uuil it should take n vigorous growth at the start to resist insect enemies; thorough preparation of the Beeil bed secures these results. Mew lieds of raspberries should be planted very early. If you have any tender kinds that wore covered last fall, they should be lifted up and tied to stakes as soon as the weather is settled. Farm experiences are worth nothing unless from than we learn how we came to make a failure, or how we were able to succeed. Hence the " double how " is what is needed to make things clear. Blackberries should be set out very early. Six feet apart e.ieh way is a good distance. Hot a stake six feet high to each. See that plants that are to bear this year are well tie l up to their stakes. Differentsoils should be ploughed different depths. Heavy chiyjRoils should be ...
A NEW ENOCH. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 14 July 1883
A NEW ENOCII. "AVhat'kk you (loins here?" demanded a polio,email of a chap whom lie hail ernighl peering in at the window of a Furman-streot house last tiifiht. " Nothin'," replied the man, jamming his hands in his pockels and gazing up at the .sli.v. " Didn't I hear a woman jell in that house a few minutes ago?" continued the policeman. " Shouldn't wonder," returned the man carelessly. " In fact, 1 know you did, for I hear ! her myself." " What's going on in there?" ijncricd the police man, peeping in. " I guess he's licking my wife," suggested the sinniger. "l)o you live here?" nsked the policeman in soino aslonishmcnt. " J used to, hut 1 kinder fell out o' the habit lately," was the indifferent response. "What kind of a man aro you to stand out here and let another man lick your wife?'' demanded the policeman, indignantly. " I think he can do it lintlcr than I can," growled the stranger. " I never had any luck at that kind of a job. and if there's any one can make a success of it...
[?] [?] CAMPBELLTOWN HE[?] [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 14 July 1883
ITEMS FROM CAMPBELLTOWN HERALD. The proposal to incorporate Camden is meeting with opposition, and several parties are getting up a counter petition. Those in charge of the original document are, however, sanguine of success. The Picton and Camdon Agricultural Society held their annual meeting on Satur- day afternoon in Camden. The balance sheet was read, and gave satisfaction, showing over £100 to the credit of the association. A report of the proceedings appears elsewhere. &nbsp; The many friends and admirers of Mr. Charles Stanley, of the Sportman's Arms, will be glad to learn that he has so far recovered from his dangerous illness as to be seen recuperating himself in the sun- shine, near his own figtree and hostelry. Bravo Charley! We don't want to lose you &nbsp; &nbsp; yet, anyhow. The monthly Camden Farmers' Union meeting was largely attended on Saturday. It was held to protest against the action taken by the agents in regard to the bag question. Dele...
ORIGINAL POETRY. EXPERIENCES OF A NEW CHUM. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 14 July 1883
ORIGINAL POETRY. EXPERIENCES OF A NEW CHUM. (by A. Richardson.) Farewell to Australia, the land of the free, Thy memory ever most cherished shall be. When I came to thy shores I was green I well know; &nbsp; That I am so no longer I'll endeavour to show. I can ride like a stockman, jump, gallop, or trot, For the worst of buck-jumpers I care not a jot, At yarding wild mickies I'll give into none, I am good with the stockwhip, first-class with the gun. Can at night rope a cow, put the brand on her calf, Ere the moon is announced by the jackasses' laugh. &nbsp; I can work with an axe, shear a sheep, milk a cow, Kill a pig, skin a horse, I'm at home with the plough. I can dig potatoes, pull apples, and pack, Tell the weight of a beast, know the pace of a hack, Drive a team on bad roads, clear lands, fall a tree, &nbsp; Can bake a good damper, and make quart-pot tea; &nbsp; I can wash my own shirt, sew on buttons and mend, Patch trousers, clean boots for m...
MISCELLANEOUS. A HARD LINE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 21 July 1883
MISCELLANEOUS. A HARD LINE. One of the most popular little pleasantries connected with our Government institutions is the record books which show the exact time each clerk enters and settles down to his worse than Siberian slavery. As some of these clerks enter • the time themselves, these books arc, of course, a true and faith ful record, because a Civil Servant would rather dye than make a false entry. In one department, at least, the conscientious clerk used to occasionally take an hour on Sunday and fill in his time for a month »head. This saved delay, and part of the gents' salary also. A few weeks ago one of our ' lightning dodgers ' turned up an hour late, and in trembling tones observed:—"Little' domestic event last night, about three o'clock this morning, sir —twins ; both girls, sir." And then the unsympathetic Secretary, who has rever been the happy possessor of these blessings himself, growled " Humph ! all right ; but this is the fourth time this ' little domestic event...
LOCAL AND GENERAL. THE FITZROY FALLS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 21 July 1883
LOCAL AND G ENE BAL. THE FITZEOY FALLS. Most prominent among the picturesque scenery of this district is the Pitzroy Falls, and the Mervla Valley, through which the stream which .forms the Palls flows. The Wentworth Falls of the western side have generally been lauded as the most romantic in the colony, but any person visiting and comparing the natural grandeur of the two, could not but award the palm to the Fitzroy Falls. Well has it been remarked that tho colony is more rich in natural wonders than is generally supposed, and it is also true that the colony is not sufficiently accredited for its natural great ness, even within its own boundaries. The Falls are situated in a south-easterly direc tion, and about eighteen miles from Bowral ; and though the distance to be traversed to reach them is considerable, it may be com- ¡ fortably accomplished in a day, and the visit will undoubtedly be repaid by the mqgnifi ficence of the locality. A good road is opened to the Falls, which does...
THE DYING BARD. (An Allegory.) [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Mittagong, Burrawang and Kangaloon Advocate — 21 July 1883
THE DYING BAUD. (An Allegory.) His honra were numbered—'twas the last, TliO aged linrd was dying fast The.harp he loved lay idly by And caught 110 more Iiis dimming cyo : A youth passed slowly by the way And marked the sufferer as lie lay, And proffered aid, and asked to bring The cooling water from the spring. He murmured thanks in low reply, But I'ointud where the harp, lay by : " Haut thou a soul for song," he said, " Uro mortal darknoss round me spread," " 'Twould cheer my heart, 'twould ease my pain " " To hear that blessed voice again." With burning soul and eye of fire The youth' took up the fallen lyre ; Boldly and well he struck the chords, But uori'ow trembled in his words ; —Called from the past its living ghost And causod to pass th' immortal host "Whoso song hath kept the spirit whole, And guards the altars of the soul : He watched the old bard's kindling eye And thought that yet he might not die ; But fainter tones and failing breath Showed nighor drew the s(ep.of deat...
