PUGNACIOUS POLITICIANS. [Newspaper Article] — Werriwa Times and Goulburn District News — 5 August 1901
PUGNACIOUS POLITICIANS. The presence of so many new mem bers in the Legislative Assembly is proving an irresistible temptation to some of the older representatives to indulge in baiting some of the adoles cent politicians. But that one of these young members is determined not to meekly put up with this treatment was evidenced at Parliament House 011 Thursday morning during the cen sure debate. The bludgeon style of criticism and abuse adopted by an old member was keenly resented by a new labor representative, who hinted in the Chamber that he would deal with his censor outside. True to his word, he forced an encounter with his opponent on meettng liim later in the refresh ment-room. "You're a coward," he called out, and rushed to the fray, planting his list gently on the other's jaw, and to complete the invitation, he added, " and 1 am here to give you satisfaction." But lie of the scathiug tongue, although. known to be some what proud of his fistic power, was stricken dumb and para...

TOWRANG. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Werriwa Times and Goulburn District News — 5 August 1901
TOWRANQ. (Fiiom Our Cohbebpondent.) The crusade against hares and rabbils •sf has commenced here. By invitation fell last Saturday no less than 62 shooters $ 8 and drivers assembled on the Lockyers £eigh Estate for a day's drive. Ths I sport was carried out with vigor till mid-day when all sat down to a bounteous spread supplied by Mr. W. T. Rankin, J.P. A start was afterwards made and at the close it was found that during the day some 200 of the pest had bit the dust. The road from here to Goulburn has for some time been in a bad state of repair, but now it is being attended to by Mr. J. Smith who will make a first rate job of it. The wool scouring works here have been closed for this two months or so, owing, I am told, to the scarcity of wool. The weather has been very cold. Old* hands say they do not remember ever having such a dry. winter. Only about 11 points of rain were registered for the half-year. August 1st.
LAYING LINOLEUM. [Newspaper Article] — Werriwa Times and Goulburn District News — 5 August 1901
Laying Linoleum. Wlrim laying linoleum, do not nail it bit l;y bit, as you go, aa with carpets. Flail out the linoleum to cover the room, and lay it evenly na it id to bo nailed, putting a tack hore and there* where neoeBBary, to keep it in plaee. It muab bo remembered that there can be no overlapping in oilolotb, but all super fluous material must be out off with a very sharp knife, and the edges laid flat together. After tho oiloloth is fitted, as it will have to go eventually, nail with as few taoka as possible, after tho edges hare been trimmed off neatly. In laying grass matting, small staples are preferable to naifo, for they do not tear out or fret the matting, as do tacks* When once linoleum is laid, it ahonld be cleaned with beeswax and turpentine, or a little Earaffin, and it will last for years, iooleum whioh Is washed with water ia very boor rotted and spoiled, not to men* tion the boards under it being literally destroyed.

GIRLS WHO NEVER HAVE LOVERS. [Newspaper Article] — Werriwa Times and Goulburn District News — 5 August 1901
01ULS WHO NEVER HAVE LOVERS. Who aro tho womon who go sweet* hearties* through life? Aro they the plain, the foolish, tho dowdy, tho in aigniticant? By no moans, It is only neccssary to glance around tho circle of engaged and married women to disprove this, for is it not patent to every one tlmt these ladies aro largoly recruited from the ranks of the uti* intelligent, tho incapable, the silly, and the houiuly featured ? And is it not equally clear tlmt some of tho best-looking, refined, elevur, and managing women are neglected and over looked by men V Why is this? Well, there are several reasons to account for it, one being a want of a certain "soraothing " in them, which M something" is nono the less powerful in attracting men because it is difUcult to define. For instance, I know a very good* looking woman who openly acknowledges sho never had a lover, and who, upon being asked " why ?" replied : " I really don't know, only somehow men never did oare for me 1" Again, there are ot...

Werriwa Times. MONDAY, AUG. 5, 1901. THE CENSURE FIZZLE. Is the long list of Parliaments that have met in Macqimrie-street since the first was inaugurated, there lias not been one perhaps in which a struggle for office did not take place, under color of a motion of censure or want of confidence. But it may be safely said that in no case of the kind was the motion made on less tenable grounds, or under more hopeless cir cumstances, than it was in the present instance. From the first day that the House met, it was seen that there was absolutely no chance of the amend mfint being carried ; and liad Mr. Lee Ijeen a better tactician than he has shown himself to be, lie would never have risked such a crushing defeat as he lias now met with. It was pal pably plain to the merest spectator of the game that he had 110 cards in his hands worth playing, while all the i trumps were in those of his adversaries. Blinded by party spirit, and misled by the advice of the freetrade organs which had fe...
