PITT THE PRODIGY. AIR WHIBLEY'S BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 25 March 1910

Am last full honor is rendered to the greatest British statesman of modern times by n historian who writes with admir able sanity'and' judgment and perfect knowledge. It has been tho hard fate of Pitt that ill our own days his memory bus been traduced and his achievements minimised or misrepre sented. Macaulay began the attack upon Pitt's fame, and two genera tions of scribes have continued, it. Evtn Lord Rosebery, in his brief and telling essay, failed to do full justice to the great loador. Hut Mr Whibley is as inimitable in the» da'encb as he is matchless in the attack, lie writes with (ire and carries . liis readers uwo.y. .

IN FOREIGN SERVICE. SOME ENGLISHMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 25 March 1910

FOREIGN SERVICE. SOME ENGLISHMEN. ' It is too much the present practice to decry'the stamina and ability of Eng lishmen and io compare them unfavor ably with' foreigners. At a!! events, that is the opinion of Minto 3T. Johnston, who, by way o£ the "Fortnightly Re view," and in a practical and interest ing way, sots himself the task of com bating this erroneous idea of English decadence. Tie calls attention to >thc large number of Englishmen holding important posts under foreign Govern ments,and in so doing makes out a good case for the Englishman. It is really high time that some one should speak up in his defence, and no doughtier champion, than Mr Johnston perhaps could be found. He begins with Asia, and indicates the work of Sir Robert Hart, who created the Customs Service of China, placed eighteen hundred miles of coast under survey, with lighthouses, lightships, and buoys at all clangorous points, and es tablished an Imperial Postal Service. His Influence with the Powers con...

THE BIG BEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 25 March 1910

THE BIG BEAR. HIS LAST RAID. i Tho sun was just turning' to crimson the glacier-white triangle of the high est of the Three Tetons as David Han Ion slammed into the log cabin; bring ing in a fresh whiff of the crisp autumn air. His sister Martha was bonding over the stove, frying trout. Fork in.-, hand, she turned with surprise. "The big bear," cried David. "He's been in the sheep corral again. He tore down that low place in the willow, fence where he always goes over, and he just slaughtered the sheep." "Dear, dear!" wailed his sister. "He has killed so many before. Whatever shall we do?" "Kill him," retorted her brothei*, grimly. "He must be a grizzly," - ventured Martha dubiously. i ! "That's aibout what he is," assented David, "Our Teton grizzlies are 'not so large as.some silvertops, but chore are none so cunning and wicked and 5>o\ve:\''lil.

QUICKLY IDENTIFIED. A traveller in Norway .stopped at a small town, mid pin up at tho city hotel. Ho remained more than one day, and suddenly remembered that he bad not registered. Accosting the pro prietor. ho explained the situation, and was assured that his name had been ! registered for him. As the visitor had not given his name, he was somewhat curious to see the entry. Calling for the register, he read: "Mr Iiussiau Leather, coming from Warranted." The hotel cleric had copied the inscription on his trunk. Gorilla or Bear?—A wealthy motorist, wearing a long fur coat, a fur cap, anil goggles over his eyes, alighted at « country inn. A small' boy stood for some lime solemnly staring at him, and then walked round behind him. "Well, my lad," inquired tho motorist, feeling rather annoyed, "what, are you looking at?" "1 wtvnted to see if you had a tail!" said the urchin.

NEWCHAMP'S ORIGINALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 25 March 1910

NEWCHAMP'S ORIGINALITY.: By H. T. WEBSTER WORRELL,. Mr Moskins was a journalist of the old j school. Mr Newchamp was q journalist of the young- school. Therein lay the dif- | ference between them. Mr Moskins was the editor, proprietor, printer, and publisher of the "Dyketown Gazette;" Mr Newchamp was the repor ter thereof. In hia paper Mr Moskins occasionally referred vaguely to "our staff;" to such of his friends as lived at a distance and were unlikely to visit Dyketown, Mr Newchamp described himself as the sub editor of the "Gazette." The meaning was the same; in fact, Mr Neiwcharhp was reporter, advertisement canvasser, correspondent, proof-reader, accountant, and sub-editor all in one. When Mr Newchamp first entered upon his duties at the "Gazette" Office Mr Moskins found it eminently desirable to take him in hand and erase from his composition some of the "young school" element. The "Gazette" was essentially a | sobersides sort of journal, intensely con I servative In tone, re...

THE BLACK MAN'S MlKD.j WHAT IS AT THE BACK OP IT. ' On Mr R..E. Dennett's book, "At tho.

Those books are mines of information, hot:, unfortunately, the writers have seldom the literary gift and the vain- , able material needs sifting and arrang ing to make It more readable. Mr Den nett is no exception, and we share the gratitude he frankly expresses to tho win did friend who ruthlessly retrench ed on the original m.'inuscript. There is mi absence of method, there Is no little repetition, and we are lost in the j mazes of unpronounceable names, | mostly beginning with M.

G. Bohn, of York-street, Covent Garden, at a salary of twenty-four shil lings a week. This Mr. Bohn was a bit of a character in his way, and a very en terprising man to boot, for besides being a bookseller he was also si publisher and a bibliographer.

LAUGHTER THAT MEANS MADNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 25 March 1910

IiAUGHTER THAT MEANS MADNESS. The man who talks to himself is re garded as out of his mind, but the man who laughs by himself is much more justly subject to suspicion of mental trouble. This is because laughter is a social gesture; It implies the presence of someone else; it presupposes sympathy nnd solidarity Some men laugh when alone only exceptionally; and when they are In company the tendency of each to laugh Is greater as he is surrounded by a larger number of laug-hers. -Dr X.

STATE AND MAN. THE LATTER'S VALUE. The "Express" of January 29th re ported that Miss Ravenhill gave an in teresting estimate o£ the value to the State of each member of the community in a lecture on the economics of health, at the Women's Department of King's College yesterday. . " I should like my audience to under stand the connection between these two words," she said. " The function of economics is. to collect facts, and arrange and draw inferences from them; hygiene is the science and art-of conserving- and promoting' health " It can easily be understood that we can only conserve what we have. Ninety per cent, of babies a re absolutely heal thy when they are born. They may be permanently injured during the first five minutes of their lives. " Health, therefore, is efficiency. Effi ciency is national prosperity Each one of us represents a definite money value to our country. "An infant at birth is worth L5 to his country.
