The Search Stops. THE RIGHT THING HAS BEEN FOUND A QUEANBEYAN CITIZEN SHOWS THE WAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 29 April 1904
The Search Stops. THE RIGHT THING HAS BEEN FOUND A QUEANBEYAN CITIZEN SHOWS THE WAY. Once more we are indebted to a Queanbeyan oitizen for i p iblia statement that throws more lght on a subject ever-increasing interest. Peopln have been deceived by false representa. tions from time immemorial. No wonder they are sceptical of all claims endorsed by strangers living In far distant purts of the Commonwealth. It is no longer necessary to accept each endorse. ment for local citla ins as giving their testimony and 'tis an easy matter fur any reader to in vestigate the correotaeess of such evidence as the following. Mrs Wallace, Crawford St., Queanbeyan, says :-" Pains in the small of my back gripped me for eight or nine years. At times I could not bani or get down on my knees with it. The pains were frightful and that is a fact. Some. times they would oripple me altogether and I could not dress myself. - Besides that I had terrible headdches and flushes of blood to the head. When I coughe...

Does Rabbit Trapping Pay [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 29 April 1904

Our New Prime Minister. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 29 April 1904
Our New Prime Minister. JOHN CHRISTIAN WATSoN-plain Chris. Wat. son in' the' labor room-enjoys the proud distinction of having had more distinguished Cabinet Ministers at. his feet than any other member of any Parliament. And yet, like the large majority of his party, he was, ten years. ago, an absolutely unknown quantity in the political life of Australia. Nobody, of course, imapines that he owes his present position to anything superlative in the shape of scholastic or, political attainments. He happens to have been the leader of a party which has occupied a particularly advanta' geous position in the. political life of this country sinco the advent of what is known as the " tuird party" element, but his worst enemy will hardly contend that he has not shiwn exceptional ability as a leader. Mr. Watson is not more than 37 years of age, shrewd and able in debate, without being actually eloquent or literary in any sense, also,. active, ceaslessly watchful, always courteous,' and, exce...
Mr. O'Sullivan's Vision. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 29 April 1904
Mr. O'Sulli~ven's Vision. If the Lithgow folk thought that they were going to impress Mr. O'Sullivan with virtues and their general superiority to such an extent as to render any additional en comiums from that quarter superfluous, then they were very much mistaken. The Minister was in his best vein. He listened politely to the list of perfections ; how that the township was daily growing in impor tance; how that more people owned their houses there than elsewliar, ; of the pre ponderance of marriage, and of the higher birthrate compared with less favoured spots. Then he retaliated in kind, piling Pelion upon Ossa, in a perfect flood of highflown eulogy. Lithgow was the Birmingham of Australia, and Mr. Saniford was the Carnegieof this country. Gazing into the future with a prohetio eye, he saw a populous city, ringing to the music of steam.hammers and the rattle and hum of machinery. The western slopes of the Blue Mountains were to be covered with workshops and with the cottages of ...

WrE have not received a great share of the copious rains that have fallon elsewhere, and operations have been, retarded; still where possible break up'the land, the more roughly the better, and prepare it for immediate cropping as soon us rain comes. Cultivation in dry weather' is always beneficial. Deep cultivation and proper manuring will always repay trouble and cost. Sow in drills and manure them with suitable fertilizers. Try some crop, as rape, for a green manure-the effect is marvellous. Good reina are likely, cold at times, and some frosts and fogs, and a good deal of warm, thundery weather is likely.

WITH WHICH AIE INOOItPORATED 'Queanbeyan TimeB, Bungendore Mirror & Captain's Flat Miner. FRIDAY, APRIL 29, 1904. Destruction of Bunny. MEETING IN QUEANBEYAN. THE increasing ravages of bunny are from time to time the cause of much controversy. Since the pest first made its appearanoe .in the eastern districts of this State- specula tion has been rife as to whether its destruc tiveness would reach such alarming stages as was the case with our westerni neigbours. There in the west, where graziers with their vast areas of pastoral land year after year combated against periodical droughts, were at last overcome by 'the multiplicationr of this rodent, and to.&ay in those districts many homes have been deserted, and many thonsands ofsacies'of land are lying :waste because of the ravages of bunny. The drought to a very great extent has tended to lessen their number, but since no means can be adopted with which they;.may be ren dered absolutely extinct, it is oiily a matter ...

Again and again, so meeting them, the girl blushed, she knew not wvy. Energetic as he flattered himself upon being, his duties as host having detained him for a few moments after arrival; she bad not a dance left to give him when he came to ask for one. He tossed his head when she told him, so. Ah,' he exclainfed, 'you' owe me a grudge for that waltz at the Korseal-that waltz I stole I. Never mind, I'll be even. with you!'

The Chrysanthemum Show. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 29 April 1904
The Chrysanthemum Show. THE Chrysanthemum Show, in aid of the; funds o the Church of England Sunday School which was opened on Wednesday afternoon by Mrs. F. Campbell closed last night. Though the exhibits compnareI very favourably with previous years, the affair. taken as a whole, was not attended with good results. The attendance throughout was meagre and the proceeds will be very trifling. It is calculated that the cause of its being a partial failure is principally attributable to the wet weather, whereby people were prevented from venturing out. In the flower seotinn the exhibits were very fair, considering the little interest that was apparently manifested on the occasion. Two stands-one on the right hand side and the other in the centre of the hall--were decked with chrysanthemums and pot plants. On the left hand side there was a nice display of art and fancy work; while overhead was entertwined a festoon of chrysanthemums some 44 yards in length, the work of Miss Una Russell...
