New Lamps for Old Ones. Political Schemes of Aladdins end in Smoke. [Newspaper Article] — The Wollondilly Press — 2 June 1906

New Lamps for Old Ones. Political SohemeB of Aladdins end in Smoke. Despite the partisan report of the Labour Members who constituted the recent Federal Tobacco Com mission, it is most unlikely that the Deakin Government will make itself a party to any attempted amendment of the Commonwealth Constitution in order to nationalise the tobacco industry. As a safeguard against rash and hasty legislation emanating from any. class in. the community, or any political party with an axe to grind, the Constitution was made fairly rigid on some points. Only by the absolute will of all Australia should any step as serious as an alteration of the framework of the Federal compact be undertaken. Apart from that; there is the question of finance. It was in no way shown by the report of the honourable but ( inexperienced gentlemen who consti tuted a majority, of the Commission that a Government tobacco monopoly —which Richard.IIarding Davis, the great Americannovelist and war correspondent, says is e...

WORRY AND THE LONG LIFE. A SUGGESTIVE LECTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Wollondilly Press — 2 June 1906

WORRY AND THE LONG LIFE. Many valuable and suggestive papers have been read before the Public Health Congress on a variety of subjects, from London drainage to sanatoria for con sumptives, but none has arrested atten tion more surely than the presidential address delivered by Sir James Crichton Brown on the possibility of living to the age of Ave score years. It was a Napoleonic maxim that no man was any good after 60; recently Professor Ostler startled young men of 40 by telling them that their period of usefulness was over, and that by the time they reached GO they had better take a dose of chloroform. Sir James Crichton-Browne seeks to reassure them. Out of the fulness of his scientific knowledge he assures them that it is a good working hypotheosis that the natural life of a man is 100 years. We live admittedly in a neurotic age; we hear much of physical deterioration, oil the one hand, and of nervous break down on the other. Yet, with it all, the one thing- certain is that, tha...

The Wollondilly Press (LATE "BOWRAL FREE PRESS"). 2.6.06. Local and General. Propitious weather is all that is needed to make the races at Bowral on Monday suc cessful from every point of view. The Bow ral Race Club is now such a thoroughly or ganised body that any race meeting held under its auspices bears the earmark of suc ccess.

Tbe second half was evenly coutesled, no score resulting, althoiiah the visitors made heroic attempts to notch a try, but failed owing to the strong defence of the home team.
