Off to The Land. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 11 February 1911
^ 1: "... Off to The Land. (Written for the Cowra " Free Press.") I'm tired of the sound of the City street, And the tramp, tramp, tramp of the tiro less feet, And the constant odour of fish and chips, And Dagoes and Chows and Niggers and Ships. I am sick of the rushing motor car, And the gorgeous pub with the gilded bar, And the gramaphones and the picture shows, And the drunken drabs and the bottle-oh's. I am full of the Landlord's call each week, And I squirm when I hear the siren shriek, And I'm weary of trams and ferry-boats,' And the straw-hat Johnnies with split tailed coats. I am done with the awful smolls and sights, And the blasphemy and the neighbour's fights j If you like these things, you can have - my share, For I'm off to the land, and I don't care. J.G.B (7/2/11.) Koorawatha.

Correspondence A Citizen's Park. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 15 February 1911
Correspondence A Citizen's Park. .To .the. Editor- - Sir,-I think the feeling is unani mous in Oowra, that ono of the crying necessities of tho town is a public park for the health and enjoyment of the people. The absence of one in a growing aud prosperous town like this, surrounded by One of tho most maguificient agricultural districts in the State, must surely bo moro the result of apathy than inability, to attain the end desired. A* almost every turn evidonce of architectural activity is apparent in Oowra, laud settlement is rapidly taking placo in its environs, and a distinct movement tor the betterment of the town is at present a reality. Therefore, as a park is more a necessity than an adornment, some concerted action should bo taken without further pro crastination, to establish oho upon a sound aud lasting basis. Tho con tention is often advanced, that a csn trally situated sito does not exist, but this may be tossed aside as a petty quibble, as veiy few towns in N.S.W. can ...

Miss Marshall has splendid stage deport-' ment, and a voice that carries well and demands spmpathy. Perhaps she was best (if there was any best in her night's work) in the drunkard's home in the first act. Entreaty, coquetry, passion, fear, terror, even madness, are equally at her command, j And the spirit of youth, the seemingly I unstudied grace of nature,. gaiety, and freedom, pervades all her movements. Mr. Leonard Willey, as Joseph Morley tho drunkard, and later as Angus Morley, the son, was a pronounced success.
