A Poemette. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 19 June 1909

A Poemette. [By lyADY Dander.] * Give thanks that with the ' ' Echo's ' birth There comes to light a 'man. of mirth,' Who tells his jokes with grim satire, To favour he will ne'er aspire. No doubt he's oft consigned to — well ! By those to whom it seems a sell To be the object of his chaff, While really they should only laugh. And when they feel like getting ' vext' We give this motto for their text : 'lyife is only made for laughter, Kven though the tears come after.' So we'll not mind a little fun — Provided 'tisn't overdone ; And try with all our might to see The worth of Mourns, god of glee. Barton's Circus arrived in town on Sat urday last, but were unable to erect their tent owing to the high winds. They left Sunday morning down the line where better weather prevailed. Messrs. Kitch & Co. have decided not to allow the opportunity to slip of having a portion of the Mountain views, anyway, exhibited at the Brisbane Exhibition, and are arranging for a display that will ce...

LEURA. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 19 June 1909

[?] | From our Own Correspondent. ] Townspeople are well pleased with the Council's proposal to expend the sum of ^20 in tree-planting here. The finger-posts recently erected give general satisfaction, more money could be well spent in this way, especially towards Wentworth Falls. We commend the idea to the Shire Council. It is to be hoped that the application for another police constable will meet with success . vSome time ago the local Progress Association wanted a permanent omcer ap pointed, and were refused on the ground that there was practically no crime here. It is hard to understand why letters and telegrams are not delivered in Mount street to places within a stone's throw of the station. Residents adjacent to the Golf Iyinks think that the letter delivery should be extended to that part. Owing to recent heavy rains the roads here are in need of urgent attention at the hands of the Municipal Council. A few tons of metal could be used to great advantage. It is just three yea...

Though not of the best racing brand and rather chilly, the weather did not adversely affect the at tendance at the Katoomba Winter Meeting on . Wednesday afternoon last. A lot of vegetation, tree stumps, and gum trees, have, since the last meeting, been removed from the track, so there fore it was in the pink of condition, save here and there, where a tree felled by some of our local wood-carters being too heavy to be removed by manual graft, made it a little difficult for horse steering. The first and principal event, the Tea Cup between Janies' ' 'Small Goods' ' and Waudby's ' Cut Prices,' which should have been run off at : 3, was detained through the jock of the former I neddy having inconsiderately had his hair cut an hour or so before the meeting, he therefore proved : too feathery on weighing out.

Two Lives. Two babes were born 111 the self -same town, On the very same bright day ; They laughed and cried in their mothers' arms, In the very self-same way, And both seemed pure and innocent . As falling flakes of snow ; But one of them lived in the terraced house, And one in the street below. Two children played in the self-same town, And the children both were fair ; But one had curls brushed smooth and round, Theotlier had tangled hair. The children both grew up apace, As other children grow ; , But one of them lived 'in the terraced house, And one in the street below. Two maidens wrought in the self-same town, And one was wedded and loved ; The other saw through the curtain's part The world where her sister moved ; And one was smiling, a happy bride, The other knew care and woe ; For one of them lived in the terraced house, And one in street below. Two women lay dead in the self-same town, And one had tender care ; The other was left to die alone, On her pallet so thin and ba...
