Original Poetry. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 31 October 1902
Original Poetry. She storm and stress of human life Lose half their carking care, And, banished weUis bitter strife, When Woman's self is there. Within the depths of her grey eyes, What tears of passion dwell ? To raise our hopes beyond the skies, Or dash them deep' ia Hell. To man we turn in thoughtful mood, To learn nis classic lore ; From him extract our mental food, As gold from flinty ore. But Women's smile is sweeter far,. ;.. Than Sage or Tophists'page. ' , _ Through life she is our guiding star, From early youth till age. Perhaps there-is no Heaven, no Hell, No life beyond the tomb, So lfit us worship^Wonian well, : Defying, earthly' gloom. ? . ^-r-NnmoD. The- Rev.

Dubbo Rabbit Board. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 31 October 1902
Dubbo Babbit Board. On Saturday last the secretary of the Dubbo Rabbit Board (Mr. R. G. Dul hunty) handed over to the Dubbo pos tal officials 964 letters to be registered. The envelopes contained the first assessment notices issued by the board. For each of these 964 letters a receipt had to be made out and several entries. were also necessary in connection with each separate assessment; but by working at high pressure the officials managed, in addition to their ordinary tasks, to get about 300 away by the afternoon mail, and by putting in a few hours on Sunday, succeeded in despatching the remainder by Monday morning. An even larger number of letters for registration had been recei ved a few weeks previously — 1100 in one batch — from, the electoral registrar, Mi-. R. T. MacNevin.— Dubbo Dispatch.

Convent School Concert. In compliance with an invitation from the promoters of the above, we attended a rehearsal by the children, of tiieir proposed entertainment to take place on the evening of Monday, the 10th November. Every item is full of interest. The singing of the ' cliild ren is excellent, and the performance will, without doubt, command the greatest enthusiasm i-iglit from start to finish. The programme is varied with Comic Songs, Marches, &c, -while the Dramas have apparently been carefully selectedjthechildrengoingtliroughtheir respective parts in excellent style. In such a excellent list of performances it would be difficult to discriminate, as all are so splendidly rendered as to please the most cynical, but two in particular are. really worth special mention. These are an action song by the senior girls, entitled ' Beauti ful Flowers,' and a solo by a little girl named DeWarr. We feel sure it will be the univorsal comment of those pre sent that they have seld...

Mr. Tattersall Senr., was voted to the chair. He said that Hie object of the meeting was to form a Railway League. Railway league's existed, at Peak 'Hill, Tomingley, and Narromine, and it was nothing but right that those at McPhail should form themselves into a league to co-operate with the other bodies, in agitating for Railway Communication.

Current Jottings. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 31 October 1902
Current Jottings. (By Grasshopper.) Whatever the Australians, according to Sondow, lacks in physical deport ment, is surely .outweighed by their resourcefulness under difficulties, as the following incident will show : — ' JL timber getter in the fcSoutu Uoast dis trict received an order for a seventy foot girder, and not wishing to fell a tree to find it too short, and being un able to apply any arithmetical pro blems for ascertaining its height, hit upon this happy expedient. Search ing about he discovered a Native Bear, and after securely fastening a fishing b'ne to' its hind leg sent him up to measure the tree. When he thought he was as far up the tree as would satisfy specified dimensions, with that ?string ' Ho hauled him back again.'

Editorial Notes. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 31 October 1902
Editorial Notes. The consequences of the prevailing drought are so far reaching, and dis astrous in their effect as to force us to consider if there is no possible way whereby the influence of these ever recurring phenomena could not bo miti gated to a great extent. 'Australia, as we all know, is particularly addicted to visits of these unwelcome guests, and it appears to be beyond the ken of our cleverest scientists to determine the cause. Possibly if we were to defini tely know the reason, we would be but slightly benefitted, as in all pro-' bability we would lack the means wherewith to combat the evil. How ever, forewarned is forearmed, and knowing as we do that droughts mil assuredly revisit us, wo should, in times of plenty, make provision for the proverbially 'Rainy day.' That such has not been the case in the past is only too painfully apparent, for as the severity of the present catastrophe (it is nothing short), began to make itself felt, it was found that at least fifty pe...
Public School Concert. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 31 October 1902
Public School Concert. The Annual Conceit in connection with the local Public School, took place in Matthew's Hall on Friday evening last, the 24th inst. Unfortu nately ior the entertainment, rain commenced to fall just before starting, and continued during the whole of the performance. This interfered consid erably with the rendering of the different items, as it was almost impos sible for those seated at any distance from the stage to hear what was going on at all. The attendance too, was materially lessened in consequence of the un favourable weather. The stage was artistically decorate! for the occasion, and the manner ia which the children went through their respective parts, spoke volumes .for the untiring energy and perseverance which must liave been-necessary on the part of tho Tutors. To all it must be apparent that the training of a .large number of children to act in such a manner as those on Friday evening, must entail a vast amount of trouble. They had committed to memo...
