Cowra=Crookwell Railway. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 8 February 1911

Cowra=Crookwell Railway. It will be observed upon referring to another, column that a meeting of the Cowra Bailway League, and other members of our community who may be interested in the Cowra -Crookwell railway proposal, is convened for 8 p.m. on Tuesday next at the School of Arts. The object is to consider the subject matter of a communication that has been received I from Mr. T. B. Prosser, of Frogmore, and to decide as to a" course of action in respect thereto. The importance of the matter will, we feel sure, com mend itself to those of o'iir community who have the interest of our town and district at heart. The proposed railway has many special features to Qommend it from a national as well as a local aspect, consequently we are satisfied that if an effort is mide little difficulty should be experienced in making out a very strong case to lay before the Work? Committee when the Burrowa--Bowning connection proposal is being considered by that body. We hope to see a large and inf...

Star Picture Entertainers [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 8 February 1911

Star Picture Entertainers On Thursday evening this company gave ono of the best entertainments of its kind that has yet taken place here.' The picturos shown were for the most part new, and bad the added charm of being almost entirely free from the usual trying and disagreeable flicker. The " star " picture, depicting the life of John Vane, bushranger, had only just properly started when the cry of "fire" caused a hurried exit of the largo audience. Mr. Walters sang sev eral illustrated songs, and was well re ceived. Miss Florence showed herself a pianiste of considerable talent. On Monday evening the company paid Cowra a return visit when amongst others the John Vane picture was shown and highly appreciated. A re turn visit will be made in about threo weeks time.

Kelly, have very generously decided to present the entire profits arising from their Lyceum Picture Show on Tuesday, 2Lst instant, at the Centennial Hall to the District Hospital.

On Advertising. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 8 February 1911

Advertising. "My business is too small for me to afford to advertise," said a shopkeeper. "Just so" was the reply, "it is precisely because you do not advertise that your business remains small." Our friend was confusing cause with effect. Try ing to do business without advertising has been compared to winking in the dark. You may know very well what you are doing, but nobody else does. Some say, "Oh, I've been here so many years. Everbody knows where I live." Another fallacy 1 As if people had noth ing else to do but to think.of your ad dress. The greatest event id only a nine days' wonder. The object of ad vertising is not so much to "let people know where you live" as to keep people in mind of you. It is a suggestion. People read things once, twice, and it makes little improssion But if it is placed constantly before them it forms a record on ' the brain as tho constant dripping of water wears away, the stone And thus suggestion brings fruit. Messrs. J. S. Leeds & Coy., o...

Bereavement [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 8 February 1911

Bereavement It .becomes' our very sad duty to record the death of the wife of Mr. Marshall, of the Post and Telegraph Service, Sydney. The lamented lady was the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel O'Brien, of Grant's Corner, and first saw light in this district about 30 years ago. Up to about 12 months back she enjoyed fairly good health, but for several months sub sequently her condition wa3 such as to occasion her husband and relatives the gravest anxiety. Towards the close, of last year there appeared to be a very marked improvement, and as sl-e seemed to be daily getting better for some time longer it was hoped that within a measurable space she would be restored to perfect health. But, ala3, it was not to be, as a week or so ago unfavourable symptoms once more manifested themselves, and thenceforward she continued to grow worse until finally called to her Maker on Saturday.- Heartfelt sympathy goes out to the bereaved husband and the grief stricken parents and relatives in t...
