ORDER OF THE GOLDEN HORSESHOE. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 26 June 1908
OltDHIt OF I'HKCOLIJTON HOUSE ]Toiv ninny persons have over hoard of tho Ord»>r of the Goldon Horseshoe, tho lirst order founded in America? In 1724, when Virginia extended from tlio Atlantic into tho unknown West, few 'of her colonists had crossed tho JJluo Itidgo or tho AUeghames. So full of clangors from savages and wild 'boasts and so full of natural difficulties was tho passage of those terrible heights that Governor Spotswood, setting o\it i to discover a pass, looked on tho ex pedition as so hazardous that ho took with him a guard of "soldiers, gentle men, and pioneers," armed and carry ing jj^ovisions.' Tlieso scaled tho pass with great hardships and porils, and returned after tho Governor had cut tho name of King Georgo in tho rocks on tho highest peak. ITo then constituted tho society, or oidor, of tho Golden Horseshoe. Each man who had /scaled this high pass was made a membor of it, and to each one ho prosontod a golden 'horseshoe. On the side was inscribed in Latin: "...
"SEEKING SANCTUARY." [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 26 June 1908
"SEEKING SANCTUARY." An almost unique feature of Hex ham is the night stairs inside the Abbey, and leading to the monks' dor mitory ahovo. At tho top of tlie night Stairs, on the left, is the arched door of the Sanctuary Chamhor, whore a watcher was constantly stationed, on the lookout for persons flying from tho avenger of blood, and ready to help such fugitives to shelter and safoty. There were no half measures. Crim inals of however deep a dyo wore treat ed with the greatest kindness. For forty days lodging was found either in tho Sanctuary Chamber or elsewhere, and food in plenty provided. After this time (in t.oine cases), this sanctuary Kuosfr was allowed to go free, and pro tected to the 'borders of tho country. In others, ho..had to appear, robed in sackcloth, before tho judges and con fess himself "guilty." when the sen tence of tho "Adjuration of tho Realm." was passed on him, and ho was banished from England, to embark, after another forty days, cross in hand, for some fo...

DYING ENGINE-DRIVER AN ENGLISH INSTANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 26 June 1908
DYING ENGINE-DBITTEK AN .ENGLISH INSTANCE. Tho importance of frequent medical ; examinations in the case of engine- ? drivers Is brought forcibly" home by tho official report of Colonel A. K. Yorke, published by the Board of Trado yester day, on a recent collision on the London and North-"Western Railway near Ather ton,. Tho report states that although tho driver, a man named Fairhurst, was thoroughly experienced, sober, and to llable, he had suffered from a complaint which in 1907 kept him away from duty . for three and a half months. "it IsCprobable,"- says Colonel Yorke, "that. osving to his complaint, hie was .. daily losing -strength, and that latterly he was hot jn a fit state to tako charge of an engine. The evidence proves that on this ^occasion Fairhurst mismanaged his engine, "but-1 attribute this and the ; subsequent collision to his debilitated I conditio^, and. to the fact that he was , in the last stages of a fatal complaint. 'The-caso points to tho desirability of . a...

-- I TODIAN BUDGET DEBATE. | .. "WHAT IT MEANS. THE LOCAL PROCEEDINGS. I | . There is all the difference-In the world ?between a full-dress debate at "West ! minster and the Budget debate over which "Lord MInto presided in Calcutta recently. The Viceroy's Legislative Council meets in the Throne Room at Government House, its twenty or so members sitting round a table, while chairs for visitors and the Press occupy the rest of the Chamber. The "debate" Js in no sense a discussion. It consists of the reading, by practically every member, of a carefully prepared political I essay, which Is ostensibly a comment I upon the annual financial statement, but | is almost invariably a statement of the i principal grievances complained of by 1 the various communities represented. Once or twice within living memory a spcech has been laid on the table and taken as read, but usually the Members of Council insist on reading their speoches in all their brute strength.

LONDON REVISITED. A WANDERER'S IMPRESSIONS. revisiting.London nfter an absence of ft few years (writes a contributor to the "Westminster Gazette" of 10th -April), I find streets widened, ninny bits of old London gone for ever, and many new bits put up-some due and some lind, ' In fact, the sweeping changes in methods of transit, In the public thoroughfares, in the life of the streets, make those who have known tlio capital from their earliest youth more surprised than the sights of many strange lands. Just as l(i Paris one Is struck on arrival with tho artistic air which surrounds ifs people and its palaces, so in London the notes of comfort and subdued move ment Impress the new arrival as key notes to the English character.

A GOOD CASE IN POINT. The Case of Mr. W. PARKER. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 26 June 1908
A GOOD CASE IN POINT. Tho Cose of Mr. W. PARKER. (By a Special Reporter.) Never did the outlook for the afllio tcd disclose a more,roseate hue than that suggested by the nurrativo of Mr. William Parker, of No. 30 Goodsell street, St.^Peters, who, on buiog quea tioned^ by a pressman, said : "it is now about six months ago since 1_ succeeded in leaving behind a complaint that had been hanging on to uie lor between two and three yeara, ami U is needless to suy that 1 am very thankful for the euro which was eli'ected.

MORMONISM DYING OUT. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 26 June 1908
M0RM0NI3M' DYING OUT. Wo aro accustomed to think of Mor mons as much-married men. That con dition of affairs is fast passing away. In 1896, t.volvo years ago, Utah was admitted into the American Union, on condition that no man was hence forth to . marry 'more than one wife. Six years before iho, church had issued an ordinance forbidding polygamy. There are at presontnot moro than four hundred families in the Mormon State where there is lhoro than 011c wife. The heads jof these families are old people, as for sixteen years there have been no polygamous marriages. It will be seen that, the condition of affairs which was', long looked upon as a blot on the civilisation of the United States has almost come to an end.
BRANDY FOR A MOTOR CAR. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 26 June 1908
I! I!ANDY FOH A MOTOR CAR. The following is a letter sent by a correspondent to "Motor Traction," which journal congratulated the writer on his combined system of fuel tasting and pressure feed:-"A fow months ago, after having driven a party of four to Peterborough, I was returning to Hitchin, when I ran short of petrol, about fivo miles from Norman Cross. After waiting for a friendly car, which never came, a bright idea struck me. In the tonneau was a luncheon basket containing some spirits, but alas! I found only a half-bottle of Cognac, which, if emptied into the tank, I knew would bo useless. Then a second bright thought struck ine; so, after^ discon necting the potrol pipe, I led it up to tho front of the car, and by taking mouthftils of the Cognac at intervals and blowing it down the pipe, I man aged to feed the carburetter, and so drove to whero I was able to obtain a supply of potrol."

SCARCITY OF WOOD PULP. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 26 June 1908
SCARCITY OF WOOD PULP. The renortof a dobato in the Ameri can Congress has boon sont homo by the Embassy at Washington, which gives some useful information on the state of tlio paper industry. It was stated that the only wood that can l)o found suitable for manufactur ing nowspapor in tho mills of th« nor thern States is spruce, which is found in Maine and several States near, and in considerable quantities in West Vir ginia. In Michigan, Winsconsin,.and Minnesota,^ howovor, tho supply has been largely exhausted, and the mills there are dopondant 011 foreign sup plies. A roport from tho Consul-General at Chicago shows that in 1900 the price of papor rose, owing'to the output of oxtrns and tlio increased demand for paper, some of tho newspapers almost doubling their requirements. O11 ac count of tho increased price, now mills wore opened, and tho prico subse quently fell 27 per cent, in 1905, but it roso steadily to tho ond of. 1907.

THE MAGIC TRIANGLE. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 26 June 1908
THE MAGIC TRIANGLE. Here is an interesting experiment you might try, which appeared in the pages of the "St. Nicholas Magazine" : With a wot lead pencil draw on thick paper a triangle-whether the sides are equal or not makes no difference. Lny it on the surfaco of a basin of? water with the drawing up, and very carefully fill the space inside the dampened lines with water, so that there will bo a triangular basin of water on the swimming sheet of paper. (The water will not extend beyond tho wet lines of the drawing.) Now take a pin or a needle, or any thin, smooth, sharp-pointed instru ment, dip its point into this triangular basin anywhere but at' its centre of area-say, very nearly at one of the angles. Be careful not to touch tho paper, and so prevent its free motion in any direction, and you will find that, no matter whero the point is placed, tho paper'will more on the water until tho nontro of area comes under tho point. This centre of area may be indicated before placing' the...
