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

Earnestness. The hurry of the times affects us so In this swift, rushing liour, we crowd and press,. And thrust each other backward as we go, And do not pause to la)- sufficient stress Upon that good, strong; true word, earnestness. In our impetuous haste, could we but know Its full, Heap meaning,, its vast import, oh ! Then might we grasp the secret of success ! In that receding age, when men were great, The bone the sinew, of their purpose lay In this one great word. God likes an earnest soul Too earnest 'to be eager. Soon or late It leaves the spent horde breathless by the way, And stands serene, triumphant at the goal. Mr. J. K. L,aiid, an American inventor, has devised a machine which will answer the calls of telephones when the party called for is out. It will repeat twice, to each call of the telephone, any message the person expecting to be called desires to im part to it. There are many things about the 'annuueiphone,' as the instrument^ is called, that commend it to the pu...

Scientific and Useful. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 29 May 1909

Scientific and Useful. Raisins will stone more easily if slight^ wormed, and candied peel should always be placed in the oven before cutting up. Warm plates and dishes 'by pouring boiling water over them. There is not the chance of their cracking and becoming: brown as when they are put in the oven. Many housekeepers do not know that the tin}^ black specks, seen on almost every lemon are the eggs of an insect. If the grated rind is used these eggs become an unwholesome element of the dish. I^emons should be dropped into water as soon as they come from the store, then scrubbed with a little brush, dried with a cloth, and hung in a net in a cupboard until used. Reaching both hands high, over the head, bathing the face with very hot water, plac ing bits of ice in the nostrils, rubbing ice on the back of the neck, and compressing the nose frequent^ between the thumb and finger for several minutes are useful measures in checking nasal haemorrhage. Care should be taken to -hold the head e...

Russian Proverbs. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 29 May 1909

Russian Proverbs. No European literature is richer than the Russian in proverbs. The best of these are usually of a caustic turn, or else indi cate the resigned and somewhat melancholy Russian character. Here are a few of those most often heard :— Your friends vinegar is sweeter than .your enemy's hone.y. Even a bishop will steal if he is hungry. The rich man has plenty of cattle, the poor man plenty of children. A good hammer will drive a nail even through a brass door. Necessity teaches the smith to make shoes. If you have1 never tasted the bitter, you will not know the sweet when you have it. Who sleeps in silver beds never has golden dreams. If you drown without fame, it is all the same whether you drown in a duck pond or in an ocean. One must dig the well for the others to draw the water from .

A Bad Time. BY AMY RIPPIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 29 May 1909

A Bad Time. By Amy Rippin. It seemed to me that I had just awakened. At any rate, I could not remember anything that had happened during the last few hours. And, in truth, I was much, too taken up with the present to think much of the past. What I saw would have made me open my eyes wide with amazement, but, though my brain was susceptible to emotion, my eyelids seemed paralysed. My eyes were halt-open wnen coiibcitjubMc.--» uun-- ^ m^., and half-open they remained. Do as I would, I could not shift or alter them, and yet I could see plainly enough. I was in a narrow enclosure of some kind, lying down, and upon my back. This did not trouble me at all, but what did surprise and worry me was to see my husband kneeling by my side, sobbing. I tried to ask him what was the matter, and it was then that I found that the power of speech was also taken ? from me; my lips, like my eyelids, would not move. I tried to touch his head, to place my hand upon it ; but I could not. I was quite, helpl...

Empire Day at Mount Victoria. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 29 May 1909

Empire Day at Mount Victoria. The day broke cold, damp and misty. It must have been a keen disappointment to some, but the children made the best of it, as the)7 always do. About 70 gathered at the ^chool before 10 o'clock, and marched to the Mount Victoria Hall accompanied by their teachers : a bright, rudcly faced, happy looking crowd. The President of tlie Parents' and Citizens' As sociation, Mr. W.'J. Berghofer, took the chair, and in his opening speech reminded those present that the meeting together; and the celebration of Kmpire Day was to keep' in memory one of the ])cfit of Kiio'1/ind 's rulers. 'the* -lnr.e Oueen Victoria.. and to emphasise our loyalty to 'the throne. : ' After the children sang ''The Fatherland,' tlie President called upon the Rev. T. J. Heffernan, Rural Dean, to address those present. The reverend gentleman spoke of the great essential of character in building up a great nation emphasising the need of the love of God and country' and home, and that loyal...

Varia. Tiic Queensland Industrial and Agricultural Exhibition, which, they tell me, will beheld early in August (not in September as I supposed), has lately been brought very persistently under my notice. A day or two ago I was called upon by one whom I. should have been pleased to see under otlier circumstances. Rut, on this occasion, he made the mistake of supposing that I had a stray guinea that was burning a hole in my pocket. As a matter of fact, between ourselves, I have had a rn-fc'tt.v irood season, better than for some vears past, and hope to have a better one this year. But i had nothing to spare for the object he came to bother me with. He hadn't been with me a minute before I guessed that he was cadging. lie approached me as a business man who had a large interest in the Blue Mountains. That was quite true, I have made my money here, and hope to make a good deal more yet. Then he talked about an' opportunity of making the Mountains widely known in Queensland. 1 was suppo...
