MUNICIPAL. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 15 June 1901

MUNICIPAL. A municipal appeal court is, as (lie Goulbur;) Post says, an enlightening function for any. one who believes in the preaont system of raising the communal revenue. When one sees the many details that have to be con sidered in arriving at an assessment he, wonders not that mistakes are made and that the method routes the ire of any man who devotes thought to it, but that it acts" as well as it does. The assessor has to con sider the locality, the size of the block of land on which the house is built, the charac ter of the house, the number of rooms and the size of the same, the material used in the building, and the outbuildings. If he is. not very careful and allows some other house in the neighbourhood to slip through at a lower rate be invites a peck of troubles, for the ground of appeal in many cases is that Brown and Jones are paying less than the appellant. The ordinary man has a natural repugnance to being taxed more than another fellow in the. same street whose pro...

When he is like that it gives me a funny feeling, all trembling, and X want to cry. I think it makes me feel worse than the way he is when he is ill; but perhaps that is because I am not so used to it. When he is that other way I go all hot, I am so ashamed for him. (I don't mind writing this because no one will ever see it but us !) Oh, how heavenly it must be for little girls who have fathers that they are never ashamed ofl The other day my papa scolded me be cause I don't call him ' father ' like I used to. I won't do that. I'll tell you why. One of my ' preteudings' is that my own father went away to Australia just before we left Woatbury, aud that some time he will come back again.

EXPERIMENTS AT WAGGA. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 15 June 1901

EXPERIMENTS AT WAGGA. The Wagga Wagga Municipal Council ie about to sink wells beside the Murrtim bidgee Eiver for tbe purpose of improving the water supply ,of the town, and the suc cess or failure of the scheme will possess deep interest for other country municipali ties. For the greater part of ..winter the water is much discolored. Although the weeds give the water a smell aud ta^te which are far from pleasant—in fact, which are repulsive—aud the discoloration is dis agreeable, it has been proved by analytical tests that in either state it is not injurious to the health! Still its disngreeablenpss urged the council to seek a remedy. Fil tration beds and settling tanks were beyond the council's moans, but the feasibility o drawing a supply of clear, sweet water from a well sunk on to the drift beside the river being apparent, tin expprimental well was put down. The experiment proved success ful, though early indications of the quality of the water which would be obtained were dis...

THE FEDERAL CAPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 15 June 1901

THE FEDERAL CAPITAL. It is now asserted in some quarters in Mel bourne that there was an implied under standing when the Constitution was ac cepted that Parliament should sit in Mel bourne for 10 years. Sir William Lyne's activity is said to be jeopardising this nlle^r ed understanding. Of course there never was any such understanding, and the Home Secretary emphatically repudiates the idea. He says the Constitution provides that Par liament shall sit at Melbourne -until the site of the capital is docided on, and- Jhe duty is imposed on the government of Im?. ing the site selected as soon as possible. The Home Secretary was on Monday to in terview Mr. See, the State Premier, with reference to the sites which have been men tioned. He will ask Mr. See to submit a number of sites, and from these a choice will be made, and then tbo members of the Federal Parliament. wiU be given an oppor tunity . of paying a visit of inspection- to them.

Phantoms of the Air. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 15 June 1901

Phantoms of the Air. BY A BANKER. • In different parts of the world the remark able atraospherio phenomenon known as mirage occurs from time to time. In the Straits of Mqssiua this strange condition of the air is frequently apparent; though tliere, instead of being perfect images of the objects reflected by the abnormal condition of the atmosphere, everything is distorted or multiplied. A single battery appears like an embrasured fortification with many bastions; a tower has a leaning replica, like the tower of PiBa, on each side of it; a square house is' spread- out fan-like, as a pack of cards, and a church appears to have several spires, each in the act of falling over. In the South of England the mirage as sumes quite a different form, which the writer has, on two or three occasions, been fortunate enough in observing. There no distortion whatever is apparent; but every thing is inverted. Steamers are ploughing their way through the ocean, which, how ever, is 'hanging' above the...
