Humours, Rubs, and Rinkles. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 12 June 1909

Humours, Rubs, and Rinkles. ? [By ' On Dm*]. Excitement ! where and how to find it in Ka- ? toomba, more especially during the long winter months, is a problem I have, with others, often tried to solve. Of course, there is an occasional splash, and while it lasts, the pace, for those con cerned, 'goes a cracker.' For instance, the other day a new publican opened a free bar on taking over a temple of Bachus in our town, and I did not hear of the event till after 11 p.m., but. judging from the few that were ' ' in at the death, ' ' there was some little excitement that I might have participated in, had I but known. However, now that the winter is upon us, I decided to become a member of the Katoomba billiard room — li'm, I beg pardon, I mean School of Arts. With this in view, I enquired of the librarian the enrolling fee, and he informed me that the same was three shillings per quarter, or one and six a month. Well, now, as we Katoomba people have not an overflowing stock of cash (or ...

Varia. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 12 June 1909

Varia. The lack of interest displayed by the residents of Katoomba in the Brisbane Ex hibition movement seems to be contagious. I am told that one of the Committee trav elled to Iyawson on Monday evening to at tend a mass meeting of the L,awson people, and to explain matters -fully to them. The attendance consisted of two gentlemen who had already shown ' much interest in the movement. This augurs doubtfully for the . success of the Blue .Mountains at the Exhi bition. One can easily understand that the man who is said to have stood on Iyohdon Bridge giving away golden sovereigns found few. hands ready to be held out to receive 'them. The representative from headquar ters, although as disappointed as the gen tlemen' who had done what they could to work up a meeting, met with such kindness ati their hands that he was fully compen sated for his. trip. The ? only excuse for sticji a small gathering was that it was a wet night. Up to the time of. the meeting the rain gauge registered '00...

Falling "In." [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 12 June 1909

Falling 'In.' ' I'll never speak to Jack again- never !' declared Trixie, with emphasis. 'Of course, I don't really mind his wearing brown boots, but there was certainly no need for him to say in such an irritating manner, '?I suppose I can wear what I like?' It made me quite wild !

Had there been an eavesdropper to remem ber the hastily spoken threat, the reliable adage— that a. woman rarely means all she says — would have been once more confirmed by facts. For that she had not spoken seriously, she frankly admitted in a calmer moment later in the day ; and by the even ing her frame of mind was rapidly changi...

Technical Education. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 12 June 1909

Technical Education. The importance of this subject is becoming more generally realised, and people are waking up to the fact that the progress of a nation is largely influenced by the attention paid to the technical training' of the younger members of. the community. For the sake of clearness it is necessary to state that Technical Education is not teaching trades. Technical instruction is both direct, and indirect in its Operation. Much of the information, is theoretical, and supplements the ' knowledge gained in the workshops. The one is: an essential to the other, and no workman can be termed an efficient mechanic if he does not possess the technical knowledge and principles underlying his trade. In these days of competition, when so much work is done by contract, it is not- possible for the master builder to set apart a qualified workman to instruct the apprentices and improvers. It is argued that the method, though desirable, would not pay. Competition causes the work to be un...
