Called to the Bar. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 19 June 1909

Called to the Bar. [By Comkofp\] Writer was reclining on the southern shore of Ka tooniba lyake one Sunday morning, ?watching the gondoliers plying hither and thither with the gaily dressed crowds aboard, when up conies a finger with a dog. Writer knew finger ; finger knew writer, and being a creditor he. nodded. Writer did ditto. Finger threw an iron bark sleeper into lake, and turning to dog said 'Fetch 'em.' Dog looked at finger, smelt the water. It was cold; looked up and barked.,., .' Get work, get work.' Finger mooched away. Writer got interested. Finger manouvered and suddenly disappeared into a leading juice emporium.

Letters to the Editor. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 19 June 1909

Letters to the Editor. TO THE EDITOR. ' Sir,— I notice that your pages are adorned with the humorous writings of some of our local artists ? which appear to the serious and more strin gent critic, trivial, but containing' in one page of its jocular wording and eloquent phraseology more common sense and meaning than in three times the quantity of an official or demonstrative manu script. Some people are inclined to think that such writings are detrimental and demoralising to a Imper,1 especially one just getting on its legs, but a'tug/ersion from the every-day routine of business lifWis essential to the human mind. Hoping to see''more of critic's dry chips in the next isses, be lieve me to be, Sir, yours faithfully, TOMMY BURNS.

IN MEMORIAM. McVAY. — In sad remembrance of our dear son and brother, John Thomas, who died at Sydney on June 25, 1908.

DEATH OF JOSEPH TOLL. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 26 June 1909

[?] The saddest news received by the peo ple of the Blue Mountains for many years past was that which announced on Monday morning that Joseph Toll had suddenly passed away. He was probably the best known man on the Mountains, and as deeply respected as he was widely and favorably known. The news came as a great shock, and caused a feeling of I the deepest regret. To the great majority of the residents it was not known that he was ill, for his illness was of too brief a period to become known. Indeed, on Tuesday of last week he was known to be in excellent health, but on the follow ing day complained of suffering with a cold and a touch of neuralgia in the face, but thinking little of it refused to con sult a physician. On Thursday he kept to his bed, feeling very much worse, but still declining J:o call in a physician, but I Friday his condition seemed so serious i that Dr. Sinclair was called, who pro 1 nounced his case one of pneumonia; but 1 sufficiently .serious then to cause al...

TECHNICAL EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 26 June 1909

TBCHNICAI, EDUCATION. At ivAST the Government have taken over the residence lately occupied by the head master of the local school, Mr. Dunne, and intend devoting it to the use of technical classes in the various branches for which it is suitable, with the intention of enlarging and re-arranging as time and necessity de mand. This furnishes the opportunity to our young people to avail themselves of ad vantages which have heretofore been denied to them, and thus get an insight into those branches of handicraft for which their sev eral abilities best fit them for the battle of ' life. The question of technical education is pregnant with much that concerns, not onty the boys and girls, but the parents as well. Some allowance may be made for those parents who were not in a position to send their boys, and girls down to the Me tropolis for instruction, but now that it is to be had here for the attendance none whatever can be made. The greatest mis take a parent can make is to harbor the ...

A Philosophical Explanation. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 26 June 1909

A Phi!osophicaS Explanation. A few days ago a Sydney girl, who had been at tending a school of philosophy, arrived in Katoom ba on a visit to an old school chum. After can vassing the fun and chocolates that made up their education in the seat of learning at which their early scholastic efforts were, made, the Katoomba girl began to inquire into the nature of the Sydney entertainment. And j so you are taking lessons in philosophy. How do you like it ?' 1 Oh, it's perfectly lovely ! It's about science, you know, and we all just dote on science.' ' It must be nice. What is it about ?' 'It's about molecules as much as anything else, and molecules are just too awfully nice for any thing. If there's anything I really enjoy it's molecules.' ' Tell me about them, dear. What are molecules? ' 'Oh, molecules! The)-', are little wee things, and it takes ever so many of them. They are' splendid things ! Do you know, there ain't any thing but what's got molecules in if? And Mr. Cook just as swee...
