THE HOME PAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 22 May 1909

[?] By.Myona. To-day is going to be evening dresses. How I; jean imagine the younger generation's eyes brightr ening as they read and dream of dances and card parties and all the other dear delights of the winter season; Vanities of 'vanities say the older ones, but truly if ' manners make the man' cit}'-* women seem to have made up their minds that ' ' dress makes the woman.' Never were City women better dressed; Wander where you will, through the gardens where garden parties reign, or down King-street; ? or into a ball-room or the theatre and you will see beautiful frocks and frocking on all sides. And: oh ! the beauty of these ball-room fashions. There is one window on the corner- somewhere in Sydney where were displayed; the loveliest: mater- ials for evening wear. That is to say if one can call the contents of that windows by. such a gross name as materials. For indeed they seem ed rather a piece of fairyland; Gold and silver gauze was everywhere, veiled by the lovhest gossamer...

Enthusiastic Meeting at Mt. Victoria. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 29 May 1909

Enthusiastic Meeting at Mi. Victoria. The largest meeting' ever known for Mt. Victoria was held in the local hall on Wed nesday night in support of the movement proposing' to advertise and represent the Blue Mountains at the Queensland Ex hibition, to be held early in August next. ?Great enthusiasm was displayed, and the general opinion was that the idea should be supported handsomely. Messrs Goyder and Seller, of Katoomba, spoke at length on the subject. ivir. u-oyaer saia mat it was very granry ing to address such a splendid gathering, and he felt sure that the other towns of the Mountains would receive a lesson from Mt. Victoria. People generally thought Mt. Victoria was asleep, but to-night proves it to be very much awake. Mr. Goyder then explained the objects of the committee. Mr. .Seller told the meeting in a few words what the Government would do as far as supplying photographs and literature. He also said that the movement was being supported' in all the Mountain towns that ...

Katoomba Races. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 29 May 1909

Katoomba Races. Some two hundred and fifty people gathered at the winter meeting of the Katoomba Jockey Club on Wednesday afternoon on Regan's Course to witness the trial of speed | between Aid. James' brown horse ' Lord ; Dudley' and Mr. Waudby's black flyer 'Johnstone. ' Aid. Goyder was Judge, and the jury .spread themselves promiscu ously over the ? saddling paddock, where the bookies were raking in the yellow boys from an innocent, guileless and unsuspecting gathering. ' Two to one bar one' echoed through the bush, but found no takers. 'Six to four' changed hands — after the race. The distance was six furlong^ over a boomeraug cum-buttonhook course, wiiStsU^^jws .heavy enough to knock up the best stock in tn*e*TSt;ate. How ever, the black and brown got a good start, the black leading for some distance, until they roun ded the corner into the straight where 'Lord Dudley' shot ahead and left 'Johnstone' a dozen lengths behind. After a good rub down and a little rest, ' ' Lord Dudl...

Technical Education. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 29 May 1909

Technical Education. ?TO-THK lvDlTOk. Sir, — I./et uie anticipate that failure will' 'not be dnipu,ted to him who dares not hope for success. As a letter writer I. make no claims, but'' in your last issue I read , a letter on technical education, and I could not let the opportunity pass Without adding a word of eulogisiu to the writer, and also to express my views on technical education.' It is almost siul to observe the apathy that exists in the ?furtherance of same in country towns. If people ?were ouh' alive to the advantages and privileges that are extended to them by the Technical Hdu cation P.raiich, they would not be so slow in taking advantage. To form an accurate idea the writer advises me parents 01 mi liuereMLfii wia'ii m oviuicv to visit the Technical Museum and College, where courteous officers will be only too delighted to point out the items of interest, and I venture ( to say that one can scarcely credit that such an in stitution exists where everything can be taught...

OUR POLICE PROTECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 29 May 1909

OUR POLICE PROTECTION. Katoomba and Leura have now reached that stage in their growth and development when the question of greater security to life and property can no longer be shelved or ignored by the Central Authorities. Just how utterly inadequate is'the present protection can be gathered from the fact that to cover this large district and protect the lives and property of a population in winter season of some six or seven thousand souls, and anything up to fifteen thousand during' the summer season, we must be con tent with what security ? can be given by three policemen ! And this insecurity will be the more striking when it is understood that there are no police on duty after 12 o'clock at night. It is not so long ago as to be forgotten by our citizens that a house was robbed of some /,60 worth of furniture during the night or early morning, and no trace was ever found of the thief. And more recently one of our stores was smashed into by some miscreants, who got away safely ...
