To Forgive—Divine. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 5 June 1909

To Forgive— Divine. The South African sun poured down with merciless rays upon the broad veldt, scorching all things with unpityiug impar tiality. The heart-breaking battle of Magersfontein was at an end, but the occasional ping -ping of the Mauser bullets as the}^ wended their way through the air showed that the enemy were still practising their aim upon the khaki -clad heroes of the fight. Already the stretcher-bearers were. in the field, calm, alert, and swift. The work of picking up and transferring the fallen men from the field to the stretchers was per formed with professional ? deftness. All went well. On one of the stretchers there lay a thin, sharp-featured 5roiing man, from whose lips there came the constant cry - 'Try and go easy, bearers, ' please I ; The slightest move ment gives me awful pain.' ?=.? . .'? Hugh Barrington was a hero in battle, but a child in the hour of suffering. He could do much, but could endure little ; his courage belonged to the active rather than...

A Trip to the Beilsge r River. ;?-. , TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —I am sending you my impressions of the Bellinger' River; which may interest a large num ber of your readers. The river is only navigable for about ten mile's, but it is very pretty as it winds : around the , hills with the weeping .willows hang ing over it and the beautiful pasture. It seems an ideal place. to, live in. The farmhouses are well built and comfortable ; in fact, some of them would be a credit to th^ suburbs of Sydney. I like the Bellinger Heads the best, as I love the sea,1 where I can go and have a dip in the ' briny,' or go in a boat and catch schnapper, etc. There is a good Hotel, .a good School of Arts, two Stores Schoolhouse that -would delight Mr. Dunne if we could get one like it in Katoomba, but if we could get a- house the .same we could not get the beauti tul carpet of grass which is spread, not only for the master, but for the children.

The Evils of Racing. [BY TwOQtfSCOTCHCOTvD.] This weaiy inklark sallied forth to, the races last Wednesday week seeking1 distraction from the thoughts of having had his screw docked, and his hours of servitude extended.

Varia. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 5 June 1909

Varia. One is glad to hear that the progressive School, , of , Arts in . Katoomba has been successful in arranging with, the Postal Department 'to have a Public Telephone Bureau laid on to its front verandah. There have been many questions asked as to. what purpose this little red box was going to serve. Was it for a local performance of the cabinet trick, or for a residence for the librarian, who should never be allowed for a moment off the premises, according to the view of some, for fear some wander ing tourist should call at some odd hour and go away dissatisfied? For ourselves, we were quite prepared, when we turned up at some' country School of Arts out of hours, to find the whole place closed against ^ us. It was only what we might have ' expected, and being amongst the great mass of fairty reasonable human beings we took it as it came, and went back again later on. Very soon the new structure on the verandah will glory in a plate glass door and much gold paint, to say nothin...

Good-bye to the Bull's-eye. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 5 June 1909

Good-bye to the Bull's-eye. The bull's-eye is doomed—so we read in an article which appears under the title of The Passing of the Bull's-eye, ' in the ; February number of 'Pearson's Magazine. ' ' And reading further we see that modern conditions of warfare have rendered new types of targets a necessity, inasmuch as the bull's-eye is. no longer an aid, but rather a stumbling-block. To quote from the article : 1 For markmanship in war there are three since marks are indefinite. The second is the power to judge distance, involving an e3^e for country, an understanding of light values. The third is rapid, with correct firing, because the war mark ' is always moving, and is seldom visible for long. 'The stationary, visible bull's-eye on a range where the distances are known, and where slow firing is permitted, clearlj'- offers no training in the three essentials ; and it is directly harmful for this among many reasons. The man who fires continually at a bull's-eye is certain to contract...
