FARM AND FIELD. The Wool Market. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 5 June 1908
FARM AtW FIELD. The Wool Market. The wool market is still depressed. In' the course of an Interesting article on the subject, the Sydney *Daily Tele graph1' of 2nd May concludes:- ' "Careful consideration of tho latest news available from Europe cannot fall to leave the impression that we are da far off any improvement in values * as ever. Everything points to a repetition of what followed upon the collapse of the 1899 boom. On that occasion spe culators shared to a considerable extent in the losses which followed; but this year there has been very little outside speculative buying, so that the shrink age irt' values affects practically tfto trade alone, which haa to bear the full brunt of «the fall. ' "Those growers who are still holding their wool in tho hope of improved values will do well to consider -the posi tion in the light of the present indica tions. ,Wool has not yet reached tho lowest point touched after -the 1SD0 col-: lapse.

MUSICAL WONDER CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 5 June 1908
IAVJCJOAII WONDER CHILDREN. Ul:o so many- of the world's groat CCVIVLCGJ'3, writes the "Westminster G«?iette," of IGth December, Sir Edward j 2)grr was cv "youthful prodigy" of ex ceptional gifts, as was proved by his ! Ipte performance at the /Queen's Hall of n suite composed by him at the-imma ture ago of twelve. But even Sir Ed ward was probably not as precocious as one of his English predecessors, Samuel Wesley, who In his eighth year heard a regimental.band play a march' which ho Jiad composed, for it. At eleven Franz Schubert had already placed several songs, str'ng-quartettes, and piano pieces to his credit. Handel's first at tempts at composition were made ac eight; and Vieuxtemps, who began to acrapc tho strings of a tiny fiddle at two,, is said to have been ,even more preco cious. Sir Charles Halle was only four years old when he played in public a. sonata expressly composed for him; Liszt was a public performer at nine;, Chopin and Rubinstein at eight; Lad/ Hallo and Joac...

AMBASSADORS IN PYJAMAS. Sir Frank Lascclles, British Ambas sador to Germany, is the "celebrity at home" of the current, issue of "The World." The writer remarks that the Ka'iser delights in paying* surprise calls, and he loves to recount how he caught the British Ambassador in pyjamas. Th:'s story has been told in so many differ ent ways that it is interesting to have, the Ambassador's own version. "What happened was," said Sir Frank, "that I awoke one morning to , find the Emperor standing by my bed. The -.surprise quite took away my breatli, and all I could ejaculate was &lt;God bless me!' I essayed to rise, but the Emperor pushed me back into bed. 'At least yopr Majesty must allow me *o .'-rive you a cigarette,5 I said. The Emperor took one and sat there on the edge of the bed talking for half an hour." At the end of the interview the Kaiser rose to go. "I must see your Majesty out," . said the Ambassador from the bed. "Oh, no, you mustn't come down," replied the Emperor....

THE EARTH DRYING UP. An Inevitable Doom. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 5 June 1908
THE EARTH DRYING UP. An Inevitablo Doom. The moon is dried up and dead; Mars is following in its footsteps; the earth is chasing- Mars. In this race toward planetary death the small pianets come in ahead. Astronomers on the great pianet Jupiter, which is S3 yet mostly vaporous or liguid, will one day be watching with their telescopes the last desperate efforts of the des cendants of Adam to get water enough to keep themselves alive, just as we to-day are studving with wonder the gigantic- irrigation system that .grid irons the face of Mars. The statement that the earth is dry ing up is no figment of the imagina tion, says Professor Serviss. Startling evidence of its ail too manifest trutli has lately been brought .to light in the centre of Asia, the greatest of the con tinents. Similar evidence exists m the desert of Sahara, but that dried"up so long 'before recorded history that it does not impress us as the result of a continuous process. In . Asia, on the other hand, this process...
