The Emancipation of Mr. Squibbs. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 13 March 1909

The Emancipation of Mr. Squibbs. Mr. Squibbs tasted his egg and pushed it aside ?abstractedly. He tried a sip of coffee, set down the cup with his usual careful noiselessness, and fell to gazing' hard at the exact geometrical centre of his unused plate. Mr. Squibbs was perturbed. Twelve-year-old Harold suspected it. Mrs. Squibbs behind the coffee-urn was certain of it. She had consulted the calendar before breakfast. Mrs. Squibbs drew her pretty mouth into a hard, firm line, and adjusted her eye-glasses carefully. It ?was a ntifirterlv shook. Mr. Snuibbs was about to announce that he should attend his lodge that levelling. At the hymeneal altar (approximately and meta phorically speaking), Mrs. Squibbs had stipulated that this announcement should not be made more than four times a year, and, preferably, not at all. She had made the concession only with the hope that Mr. Squibbs would gradually grow away from his likings for what she conceived to be the debaucheries of the lodge-room...

A Page of Sport. Football. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 13 March 1909

I A Page of 5port. j [By Amateur.] Football. The annual meeting of the Nepean Dis trict Rugby Union was held at Penrith last week, Springwood, Emu Plains, Golden Fleece, Woodford Academy, Penrith, and St. Mary's sending representatives. It is interesting to note the position of this union as against some two years back. At that time it merely existed in name only, as al though there were clubs in the district, no recognised control existed, and games were simply played and won or lost and no re ward for the winners was heard of. The union was formed in 1901 and had a com petition for a few years, but owing to the Secretary who had been acting leaving the district the body lapsed, and for the space of three years was not heard of. During the lapse the position of affairs became ludicrous, as at Penrith there was a senior and junior club, the junior, in the opinion of many, being the better side, and that the position .should have been reversed. The so called juniors who were really s...

The Home Page. Chat and Information. THE MANNERS OF CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 13 March 1909

The Home Page. Chat and Information. By 'Jeuneviv.' THE MANNERS OF CHILDREN. One often hears complaints of the lack of man ners in and the self-consciousness of the average boy and girl, and recently I heard a lady suggest rightly that this is the fault of the mothers, who neglect the opportunity of teaching courtesy to their children before they reach their teens. No child should be constantly reproved and re buked for being naughty or told that he or she is ?' enough to drive one mad, ' as this simply makes him either incorrigible or breaks his spirit. All children have a right to be happy, but the mother at the same time can give her little ones easy lessons in politeness and courtesy. The mother who is unfailingly polite to her own children will soon find they are soon ready to imitate her own manners. A boy soon learns to say ' ' Thank you, ' ' to take off his hat when occasion demands it, to wait on his mother and sisters, and to give all those marks of courtesy which in after...

SPRINGWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 13 March 1909

I 5PRINGWOOD. I [From our Own Correspondent]. The bicycle race run here on Saturday brought out a good number of interested spectators. It resulted in a win for Charlie Flew, with Eddie Elew second, and Jim Webb third. People were' seen about Springwood on Saturday looking for furnished cottages* But it is stated all the available houses have been taken. There is a few 'discontents' here grumbling about land being too dear, and give that as a reason why more cot tages are not built ; and all the time they are being buiit all round us, and are taken before half finished. Springwood was at a standstill — and stood very still indeed — for quite a number of years. Then the com plaints were that people would not sell, and that land was locked up from those who wanted just a ' ' wee bit ' ' to build a cottage on. During the last couple of years we have awakened, and the past year has found us very much awake, and those old dodgers who have slept during the bad times want to just open thei...

A Glimpse at Katoomba. TO THIS EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 13 March 1909

A Glimpse at Katoomba. TO THE EDITOR. Sir — I have recently spent thirteen delightful days, as the guest of some friends, at Katoomba, who spared neither time nor trouble in making my holiday both interesting and enjoj'able, and they seemed to feel a pardonable pride in introducing me to the ' ' Beauty Spots ' ' and places of attraction in their district. I was more than favorably im pressed by what I saw. However inclined I ma}1 feel I have to admit that it is beyond my power of expression to adequately describe some of the ex traordinary sights that were presented to me. After viewing those scenes so charming one can readily understand the force that impelled or stimu lated poets to breathe forth their inspirations or romantic thoughts on these works of nature in beautiful verse. Standing on Kcho Point and glancing down into the depths below a strange sensation is felt. Is it fear? No, it's wonder at the magnitude of the mighty work of the Great Creator. This point offers splendid...
