Or hide your face from the light of day, With a craven soul iuiJ fearful ?

Be proud of your blackened eve ! Jt isn't the fact that you're licked that counts; It's how did you fight— and why? And though you he done to death, wnat then? If you battled the best you could, If you played your part in the world of men. Why, the critic will call it good.

WILL YOU LIVE TO BE OLD? [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 21 March 1905
WILL YOU LIVE TO T.E OLD? ? That man will not live to bo ol.l,' remarked a scientific man to tlio wiiter, indicating a man who was standing near. ? Whv, pray f ' the writer queried wonderingly. ' Well I he has not a single physio logical index of long life. His head is narrow ; he has narrow eyes aud nostrils, and a long, delicate hand, all of which augur ill for length of days. 1 If you observe carefully, you will find that, with rare exceptions, whit-It only serve to emphasise the rule, men who live to bo old have wide heads above the ears, aud vide fore heads. Large aud wide nostrils are always evidence that those two im portant organs, the lungs and the heart, are good. The ears in old men are almost invariably placed low. Again, long-lived people usually have broad and short hands — inelegant, it mav be. but still an indication of long life. ' If, therefore, you sec n man who answers these physical conditions, you may safely, barring accidents, uf course, predict for him length...

FIRST FIND THE SPOT. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 21 March 1905
FIRST FIND THE SPOT. To prevent a crack in metal from extending further, the well-known means are employed of drilling a hole where the rent ends, but, unless the lole is bored on the nrcciso snot, tbe crack is apt to continue beyond tho hole. To facilitate the search for the exact point, it hae been found a good plan to moisten the cracked surface with petroleum, then wipe it, and im mediately rub it over with poft chalk. The oil that has penetmted int) the crack exudes, and thus indicates witli precision upon tho whitened surface where the crack, stops. Now for the drill! . .'

amte. Uj.de* date March 15. Mr. T. Kin lyside (Canberra) writes to The Leader: — 'In your report of the death of James. Kinlysife, I notice several errors, which kindly allow me to correct. -^ In the first place. you say he diechrt-.Canberra. The fact is, he died at his residence, Weetangra, where he had lived for over 30 years. Also the Kinlyside family came to' Sydney from Scotland in the thirties, and came to the Queau beyan district in 1857, the family consisting at that time of eleven members — eight of whom now rest' in the Church of England 'burial ground at Canberra. You also say my father was killed by a falling tree over Uriarra way. The fact is. my father died at Uriarra homestead from injuries received through a fall from a horse while on his way to Uriarra from where be was work ing.'
COLORS [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 21 March 1905
.. COLORS The liluo color of tho sky ia duo to the scattering of light by the iiiHnila Himal ]-artic!cs of water-vapor sus pended at great heights in the atmos phere, which arc small in size com norod with licht-waves. They de compose, the white light, reflecting more of the blue and violet, which have short wave lengths. In coun tries where the air ir pure the azure is deep, and still more eo at great eleva tions, where the density of the air is less. The redneBa of the setting sun is due to the increasing density of the atmosphere, tbe rays navjng to pass through more of it, and the propor tion ot foreign particles increasing; the shorter waves, blue and violet, ore fliterud out, and orange lints appear, thosef.'tn Uicir turn disappearing, leaving the last sunset tints red. Im purities floating in she atmosphere ot large cities cnuse the sun, at setting and rising, to appear red.

DESCRIPTIVE. PRINTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 21 March 1905
PESCRiraVE. TRINTERS. A striking experience has baen re peated in South America. During the yellow fever epidemics- the printers have been nraotically indeinnih'ed — at nny rate, before all othor workers. Tiic same thing has been noticed with regard to the late cholera ravages. In Chili the cholera took great numbers of victims in all classes of society ; while among the printers on the rolls of tbo Typographical Union of Val paraiso not a single one \vne touchod. During the visitation in Florida very few printers Buccumbed. In the States of Alabama and New Orleans tho same rule held. It shows that the printers' and compositors', metier is not eo unhealthy as it is often said to be. Oue might point out — were it not that the facts are beyond a joking matter— that the power of the press has here attained proportions never dreamed of. At any rate, the moral is obvious if the cholera should spread to England.

LAW MAKERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 21 March 1905
LAW MAKERS. The old law books arc curious reading, and give some funny ideas of what King snd Parliament thought thev could do. Henry VIII., for example, passed ' An Act for the abolishing of diver sity of opinion in certain articles con cerning Christian religion.' It staggers one to think of how many Acts would be required to-day 'to abolish diversity of opinion' in re ligious matters. It is not generally known in Scot land— the home of football—that it is still illegal to play football. An Act passed in 1424, and never re pealed, says, ' No man shall play at football, under a pain of fifty shil lings.' But Scotch ladies with a tendency to over-dressing arc in no better position. Their oyer-dressing is still illegal. By an Act of James II. re striction as to dress is laid down, and only the wife of a Bailie or Alderman is allowed to wear ' clothes of silk, scarlet gowns,' No woman is to come to kirk or market with her face veiled, that she may be known. »- Scotch te'mperanee refor...
