A SAFE INVESTMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 13 March 1909

A SAFE INVESTMENT.. The beautiful Curl Curl Beach Estate, near Manly Eeach, will be submitted to public auction on Easter Monday, and doubtless there will be keen competition for the various lots, which are handy to the surf -bathing centres and surrounded by a picturesque district, where values are rising fast. We have no doubt that week-enders and surfers will be present in large numbers intent upon securing a block in this favored locality. Country residents unable to reach Sydney ma}', with confidence, forward the necessary deposit to the auctioneers. Fur ther particulars appear in our business columns, and plans may be inspected at this office.

A POSSIBLE DANGER. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 13 March 1909

A POSSIBLE DANGER. Amongst the questions to be dealt with by the State Government before another season sets in is that of making some provision for the convenience of the large number of men who are compelled to take to the road and walk to whichever destination they are bound for because of their inability or dis inclination to pay their railway fare frpm Sydney to the West over the Blue Moun tains. Scarcety a day passes that does not witness from one to a dozen or more carry ing their swag and camping along the road, halting at times to rest and boil their bilty. Any convenient spot that will afford shelter from rain or sunshine is seized upon for a camp, and if the night is cold a fire is lighted, which very frequently remains alive long after the men have taken their depar ture in the morning. The same thing occurs at noontime, the men departing with' out taking precautionary measures to see that no damage may result from their care lessness. Very often these fires are lighted ...

BACHELORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 13 March 1909

BACHELORS. All men are born bachelors, few remain so until they die. It is the years between twent}r and thirty which are generally fatal to that state, and translate the majority of us into married men. Marriage is not as in evitable as death, neither is it as peace ful. Sometimes the danger of suc cumbing is slight, and men pass through the critical period without trouble, sometime much skill andfaies se and a certain measure of luck are needed. Something depends on the shape of the bachelor's nose, and something on the condition of his bank bock. At thirty the bachelor ap proaches hisTprime ; most of his com rades have fallen bv the wav : he has probably supported victims to Hymen at the alter, knows the cost of christen ing-mugs and rocking-horses, and (at second-hand) what wives say to their husbands when they areannoj^ed with them. The next ten years see the danger of his joining the ranks of married men lessening : in the next it dwindles almost to nothingness ; at fifty the ...

it might be worth the while of the Blue Mountain Shire Council to give it a little consideration and determine whether it is a danger to the district sufficiently important to warrant them taking any notice of it. It may not be so much of a danger as appears on the surface, and perhaps a slight discus sion on the subject would .dispell any fear that may be entertained by residents living in close proximity to the places where fires are likely to occur. However, it will be easily understood what might happen if a bush fire .should occur in a dry season, and there is always breeze enough to fan aflame when once started. It seehis to us that the subject is one worthy of ??consideration by the Shire Council, and, if thought necessary, representations could be made to the Go vernment with some prospect of something being done to regulate and control this traffic. /The excavating of the rock for the foun of the new premises for Mtjillany and Co. in Main street is being pushed ahead rapidl...

Socialism—What is it? [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 13 March 1909

Socialism — What is it ? TBv B. Prior. 1 Whatever may be the outcome of the universal social 'and industrial unres,t now agitating the en tire world to-day, I think I am on safe ground in asserting that Socialism, whatever the word im plies, must be a prominent factor. That being so, it atmears most inmorfomt thai: we should have a true conception of what socialism really is : the ideas and interpretations on this point are so varied and in some cases contradictor}- as to lead to a lot of confusion of thought and misconception of what is really intended to convey. Now, Sir, I hold this : that it is the duty of every good citizen who thinks he or she can throw any light on this all important question, to do so in the general interest of all. I have given the question a good deal of thought for some years, and with your kind per mission and a little of your valuable space, will give some of my leading views in as few words as possible. Socialism is a growth engendered bv and forced fo...
