QUITE LARGE ENOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 17 May 1904
QUITE LAltOl ENOTUGT. AN uudergraduate of Oambridge, England being examined for his degdiee, and failing in every suhjeot upon which he was tried, complained that he had not been questioned uFon the things which he knhow. The exmnining master thereupon tore off about an inch of paper, and pushing it towards him, desired him to write upon all that he knew. This incident is recalled to mind by knowledge of the fact that nJ greater space would be required wheraon to record all the suroe effected by a number of so called uni. versal retnedi.:s. " The medicine prescribed for me by a doctor I could not retain ; my stomahob rejected it almost as soon as it was sawallowed,"says Mr. Maloney, of owpoer Street, Waverley, N. S. W. " Then I thought I would do my own doctoring, and for a long time I physioked myself with all kinds of patent medicines.

" Foe about twenty years," says Mr. -Henry Speer, a Blacksmith, of Lynch Street, Young New South W.,les, "I had been greatly troubled with ith iting Piles. The irritation at times would almost drive me wild. As you may imagine, during those twenty years I tried many so-called cures for my distres sing complaint. Some would give me tem porary relief while using them, but the piles would return as bad as ever when I discon tinued the treatment. Four months ago ;I procured a pot of Z m-Buk, and applied'? to the piles as dirento:l, with the happY result that'the 'piles, have entirely .disap" peared, and I,'am 'confident they will not return again.?

A COWARDLY ACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 17 May 1904
A COWARDLY ACT. A BUNaENDOnE correspondent in writing to the Penny Post gives the particulars of a cowardly act perpetrated in town last week by a perion who was surely not one of the sons of temperance.. It transpires that a person (whose name is yet unknown), in giving vent to his larrakin element, paid a visit to aprivate residence, and knocked at the door, the result being that the landlord upon replying to the knock was greeted,-by. a pint.glass of beer in the face. The corresa pondent mnst have some knowledge of.,,he ontraged gentleman's possession of a'revolver; as the paragraph concluded by stating that the culprit escaped luckily. Beer must be cheap in Bungendore since .the Carrington Hotel closed I Otherwise that person adopted a rather lavish principle of " wishing his friend success."

THE RABBIT MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 17 May 1904
THE RABBIT MARKET. WaAT might well be termed the temporary collapse of the rabbit industry in this dis trioc took place last Saturday morning, when bunny in unknown quantities'was carted back to the bush again from, the railway station and destroyed. It trans pires that the Sydney market at present is glutted, Hnd owing to the unseasonable weather, importers refrain from taking the risk of buylug in too large quantities hence no crates arriving for their transit and the nnexpected destruction of about 2000 carcases. It is to be regretted that this has taken place, as several men-both local and from other districts-who have been receiving an exceptionally large re muneration for their labours, are instau'ly thrown out of employment. Again, this is a strong proof of the crusade that must be carried on among the pest by trappers. Messrs. Woodger Bros. inform us that in the coursA of a few days arrangements will be completed to *coutinue the industry. There is, nevertheless, avery good ...
A PIEBALD MOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 17 May 1904
A PIEBALD MOUSE. LATELY there has ben a visitation of mice around these parts, and when the cold weat.htr comes on householders will more fully realiao the fact. On Sunday Mr. W. Price, junr., caught sevi ral nnc" in a flour bag at his place and lespiatched them amongst the defunct rod teP being a piebald one, prettily marked with white on the back and nearly all whi o noderurnth, and half the tail was white. It had a long tail like a wa er rat, and is something of a novelty.- Quirindi GAZrTTE. It is reported that a peculiar sickness has broken out among children at Bodangora. The lower parts of the body become para. lysed, and the preliminary symptoms are similar to those of typhoid.
MEMBERS AND CONSTITUENTS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 17 May 1904
MEMBERS AND CONSTITUENTS. T3 IRe EDITOR. SxR,-One result of the appearance of the surplus candidate has been a cry on the part of individuals whose prospects of sue. cess at the polling booth are eomewhnt iemote, that too many memvbers of Parlia ment are offering themselves for re-election. And why should they not? Surely the member who has gained the confidence of his constituents has the best right of any one to solicit a renewal of their support. If a member in every way qualified for legislative work who has faithfully dis charged his duty, both to the State and to his constituents, were told that after his three year's service he would have to give way to another candidate new to parliamen. tary work, he would have little enconrage ment to take part in public affairs, It is the hope of continuing to enjoy the coafi. denco of those who sent them to Parliament which forms the most powerful incentive to those taking part in the'.mariagement of State affairs. Of course, if a member...
THE PROBLEM OF SETTLEMENT. NO II. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 17 May 1904
THE PRO3LEMI OF SETTLEMENT. NO II. TO TIHE EDITOR. SmR,-It may be worth while for one. who has been through the mill to review the course of events in our land system for the last 43 years since Sir John Robertson passed his first Land Act in 1861, throwing the whole of New South Wales open to selection before snrvey. Such a review may at least throw some light on the ques tion for the help of those who know nothing of the earlier:conditions. The demands for land by successful go!d miners and men who had accumulated a moderate amount of capital in other ways was very strong pre vions to 1861, and was resisted strenuously by the crown lessees or squatters who ·held the land under lease and naturally objected to see their stations invaded by small holders, Ultimately Sir John or Mr. Robertson, as he then was, prevailed but in passing his act of 1861 he made two serious blunders from which we have suffered ever since. The first was in not withdrawing all the land required fos settlemen...

"Our Queanbeyan Lettller." Ms. Eorro,--It is now some months since I last wrote you, and it would bce quite ex cusable if you cherished the idea thatI was dead and gone to that place where local correspoudnuts cease from scribbling and devote their leisure to prayers for rain ; but not just yet dear sir! The fact is I have been teaching Aunties's parrot to say Coalition, Freetection, Protrade, and Reform, in antici pation of probable political developments. x X x Reform is a nice word, has at, attractive sound, covers such a lot, and is so very non commital. I' once knew a harm secarum who was, by his extravagance and general cussedness, a source of constant worry to his friends. He reformed, and his mother en trusted him with the management of her business. The result was not gratifying. I have have not seen that young man since he went to Melbourne to see Carbine win the Cup, neither has his Ma who has .sinie mastered the washerlady's art and thieves on the miaximum wage, about th...

Mr. Perry has had the two Education Commies sioners and - a committee of inspectors con sidering certain proposed changes including the question of the. establishment of model sochools.

These schools will take the place of higher schools in the country, and 'care is being exercised, when making the transfers of teachers, to appoint those who will be able to take cbarge of model schools when they are established.

Electors' Rights. TtLE State Electoral Department has well in had the alterations r-ndered necessary by the reduction of the assembly to ninety members, but somn weeks must elapse before the machinery for enrolli g and transferring can be inll tll swing. Iu view of the enfranchisement of women and the coutingent of young men entitled for the first time to vote at State elections, it may not be out ot place to briefly state the qualification- and conditions, the more so as they differ somewhat from those of the Federal electoral system. Any pe.,son, male or female, 21 years of age, is entitled to an eleolor's right if British born, resident twelve months in the State of New South Wales, and three months in the electorate for which the right is desired.

THE COALITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 17 May 1904
THE COALITION. IT is believed that Mr. Deakin has mentioned several matters of rolicy for-Mr Reid's. con sideration and the reply.is very satisfactory. Mr. Deakin has left the question of leader ship quite open. There are members who are somewhat tenaciously holding to the view that there should be no coalition, but that all should vote and act accaoording to the pledges given to their constituents. The Labour party is trying to overcome the diffi culty in the way. of a coalition with Mr. Deakin by compromising on its exclusive constitution. The stately Eucalyptus bonds its head, And sighs and moans as if all joys had fled. The sleepy Bear cries :-" Why such sad lament? I'd like to know what's ruffled your content." " Alas ! ' the sad old tree says in reply, " Once full of joy, and pride, and power was I, But now my cil's discarded, and I find Woons' ParranxINT Ouas is used by all man. kind."
