J The Prince of Wales Birthday was fortu nately fine, though the sky was overcast. The day was spent mostly in private picnic parties: The chief attraction in our village was musketry instruction at the new rifle range. Quite a large number of recruits were present, together with some of the older members, and keen interest was taken in the shooting all day long: Capt. Thomp son took a hand in the marking, and, with, his assistant was kept busy all the time, while Mr. Harry Sam took command of the squad. Practice commenced with the moving figure, and then at 200, 300, 500, and. 600 yards, A few members of the club passed as marksmen, and a fair number as first class. Some of the recruits had a difficulty in finding the target, but they reckoned that if it were in actual warfare ''every bullet would' have its billet.' Shooting, like everthing else, requires practice...

Katoomba's Opportunity. Removal of the Observatory. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 12 June 1909

Katoomba's Opportunity. Removal of the Observatory. On the 27th of March we called the atten tion of our Town Council to the fact that the Government Astronomer had condemn ed the present site of the Sydney Observa tory, and that the Government were casting about for a suitable site for the permanent establishment of that institution, and we urged our Council to send a deputation to the Premier to urge our claim to possessing a site not only suitable but unequalled in the State. As usual, when a suggestion comes from outside, no notice was taken of it, and now the Government are moving in the matter, and unless immediate action is taken the chances are Katoomba will lose this grand opportunity. It is well known to every thinking man that Katoomba is the most suitable place in the whole State for the Observatory. We are near the metropolis, we are free from those magnetic influences which interfere with the observation of astronomical phen omena, which can be observed here free from ...

The Charge of the Beer Brigade. [By Pkahkn.] And then strayed into Katoomba one Cornelius, a man of exceeding enterprise and aplomb. 'Tis said by historians that he it was who introduced the practice of placing grub in the oral cavity be fore mastication. He was a sonsie lad, was Corny - . and had a funny habit of carrying his tobacco chews, when not otherwise employed, in his ear. He opened a pub here eventually, gave a 'free bar' for twelve hours to celebrate the occasion, and grandfather's greatgrandfather, an old sea dog who was present, was wont to describe the anair in verse — vus : — Half a keg, half a keg, half a keg turnward ! Right through the bar they charged ! Yates stood and wondered. Stormed at with rum and rotgut ; Boldly they toasted Potgut ... ? Through flasks and dems. they thundered — Unwashed half hundred !

How I Got There. [By Scratch putvt,.] The popular movement to have the Blue Moun tains represented at Brisbane Exhibition brought forward a number of eager candidates, all totally disinterested, to represent the district in the event of sufficient floor space being made available to do the thing on a proper basis. As head of the great firm of Peanut & Co., Katoomba, the ramifications of whose business extend from baking powder to the bite of a bull dog ant, I entered for the job, and engaged the services of one of the leading strategists in the colony.
