FACTORIES BUT NO DIRT. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 12 June 1908

FACTORIES BUT NO DIRT. It is interesting to know that it is possiblo for a city of 280,000 inhabi tants, and mostly factory employees, to b'o free from dirt and noise. This is the case with tho Japanese town of Nagoya, says Mr. A. 14. Edwards, tho author of "Kakemono." It is a town full of porcelain and fan factories, cloisoino works, and cotton mills. The gateway of tho cloisonie works loads down a wooden passago into a tiny court-a garden snfc round with tho workshops of the factory. It is not larger than the front lawn of a suburban house, but tho skill of a Japanese gardener has planted a wholo mountainside with forests of pino and bamboo, has scanned with an' arching bridge tho .stone-grey stream at tho mountain's foot. From insido tho tiny matted roomB, no bigger- than bathing boxes, which shut in three sides of tho garden, the illusion is completo. And tho shade and coolness of tho imaginary forest and stream bring a sonse of calmness and ropose, of quiet peace and beauty, to...

AN EXPERT ANCLER. .Jimson was paying an evening' call, and Eva Fluffinpton, happy in the knowledge that thirty five minutes' pat ient toil had fixed her kiss-curl in the most fetching position, was bringing him round to the style of conversation snatched kiss to wedding bells and confetti, when rat-a-tat came a knock at the front door. "Bother," said Eva, peeping round the drawing-room curtains. "It's that horrid iittle Boreby." ? "Say you're out," prompted Jimson.' "One "of my leap year resolutions was to tell no stories. Shall I say I I'm engaged?" , , And Jimson-guileless, lamblike Jimson-was hooked.
