BOWRAL IN A FIT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 February 1895
I BO WEAL IN A PIT. k COREESPONDENT writes :— ' Out of evil cometh good ; out of pleasure cometh pain.' Thus the festivities of the past week in Bowral have left a sting. Not only the I women, but the men have felt it. The accom I plished and fascinating wife of alocaiTesident I appeared at the Bong Bong races in a gown I which caused no anxiety to anyone but young I Miss Crabapple, whose crystallised nonsense I « inflioted on the searchers for things I ooaiio in a certain weekly. Miss Orab J apple, aforesaid, looking out for any I thing, something, or somebodv io cause I a flutter, victimised the lady in question by I rudely slang-whanging her millinery. Most I people of good taste sympathise with the aggrieved lady and condemn that style of journalism which drags from tho sanotity of private life persona to hold them up to public opprobrium. Aleo, did old Mrs. Battle-axe, from another daily contemporary, by hor partiality to tho I particular set cho chummed with, whioh set, I it i...

Just when everyone was hoping and ex pecting it would clear up, one of Mr. Wragge's disturbances got in it3 fine work, and. before ? noon yesterday it blew at times something like a hurricane from the direction of south and south-west with blinding and almost tropical showers of rain. Fortunately no serious casualties occurred, though the beautiful harbor was during the afternoon and evening in suoh a vexed state as to demoralise a considerable portion of the ferry traffic.

And it did look well when 'the stoamer Pheasant, ladeu with rowers and a great many ladies in all their glory of summer costume*, left the wharf yestorday afternoon. There was just a slight suspicion of a thunderstorm, but the first event was no soonor over than a terrific wind and ram storm came on.

THE JOHNSTONE'S BAY SAILING CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895
THE JOHNSTONE'S BAY SAILING CLUB. Just before the starter's flag fell a 'tip' came true. On board the Lady Manning was an old 'un. A gentleman with a yellow ochre complexion, no teeth, and a mighty tongue. 'We'll have it,' said he 'afore long, and it'l be a ' stinker,' too !' A weather prophet he wan on t.lm wav from 'D&woa Point to Goat Island, ana small blame to hiin. He oould see the storm, and when he Baid ' we'll havo it,' he know he spoke Gospel. Well, the starter had a wot time of it, and it was a matter for small wonder he did not want the Manning to pick him up. He went home for a chance, and hia ' mack,' probably. The race sailed was a 24ft Championship, aud no doubt under reasonable conditions it would havo proved exceedingly interesting. But, aB tho starters orossod the line tho good old clerk of tha weather took things well in hand. He played the 'joker' from tho south, and, let it be told, he spared neither wind nor rain. The poople on the flagship were glad en...

COPY. Sydney, Nov. 29, 1894. Dear Sirs, — As a cure for Indigestion— to which I have been a martyr for years — I used your G-RANUMA as a porridge for my morning and evening meals for three weeks, and am to-day absolutely free from every symptom of my former trouble. On your recommendation I left off smoking and the use of all Btimulants, to give the GRANUMA a fair chance — as you put it — and I firmly believe that anyone who will follow the plan I adopted can cure themselves of the worst form of dyspepsy in — at most — a month. I look upon the result in my own case as almost miraculous. Do not publish my name, but otherwise you may use this letter in any way you choose.
