W. C. T. U. "Temperance Compromises" (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 8 February 1902

w. c. T. IT-. V Temperance Compromises '' (Continued.) 2ud. Modern compromising methods of denting with the drink traffic could never; be crowned with success. To lower the standard and broadon the basis in order to get the help of moderate men would be au act of supreme folly. Moderation used to •be taken at its true value in the temper ance cause. Now it is being made a fabler :in the cause operating towards success. But tho stream will neve? rise above ■ the fountain. Moderate men will support only moderate measures. And all such measures have ever been a bane to the temperance cause. Out of this corrupt and corrupting1 fountain of moderation spring ull tlie de basement and iniquity connected \vitb drinking. 3rd. These modern methods already re ferred to constitute a dangerous expedient. •'They take th? true ring of moral righteous ness from tho temperance cause.

THINGS MUNICIPAL at MLITTAGONG. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 12 February 1902

Tliivcs MUNICIPAL at miTT.MTONG. Notwithstanding the present state nf chaos that exists in the Municipal council at Mittagong (says the Argus), the climax is still to be reached, and unless the Mayjr, who at' least has the municipal knowledge in the council- as it at' present stands, retainB his position as Mayor during the next: cur rent year, a more undesireable state of things, for the v/ettare of the town, would be very bard'to ima gine. On referring to back files, we find that the Mayor was re-elected solely by reason of his past experience of office on account of the team of " young fledglings '' who were considered " too raw" to be trusted in the hands of an " inexperienced' ahairman." How-much more reason is there now for the same gentleman to retain the reigns of management when affairs are at •' sixes and sevens " and no prospect oi a happier future until the pas ting of the New Act (on Emancipation Act to; the ratepayers), It is to be devoutiy hoped that the fragment of a...

Wilkinson has been called away to rest and Heaven. Belonging-to ,a Godly family, she lived a Christly and consecrated life. It is a grand thing to be schooled and trained in a Godly home. The world would, in a few years; be full of Christians if. in- the homes of Christian !parents, children were brought up for God on tho principle of Christian nurture. Mrs. Wilkinson was trained in this way.

A crowd of people gathered round him, some sympathising, and others jeering. At last a man, who was trying to be funny, shouted: ' Hi, boy, how much do you want for your donkey ?' The witty youth answered : ' Before you think of buying my donkey, you had better go and ask your mother if she can afford to keep two.'

WELLINGTON AND ROBERTS. THEIR SERVICES AND REWARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 12 February 1902

WELLINGTON AND ROBERTS. THEIR SERVICES AND REWARDS. From the point of view Of personal sacrifice, the Duke of Wellington's lifework is not to be compared to that of Lord Roberts. Wellington's fight- j ing career extended from 1794 till 1815, a period - of only twenty-one years; Lord Roberts'/on the other hand, has extended from 1851 to 1901, or exactly half a century. Moreover, Wellington fought the battle of Waterloo at the age of forty six, when he was in the most robust health, had no private worries of any kind, and could look forward to the prolonged enjoyment of the honours and riches bestowed upon him. With Lord Roberts the facts are very different. He went out im mediately after his only son had met his death heroically at Colenso. He himself had reached the almost patriarchal age of sixty-eight, and, moreover, the war was one in which there was little glory to be gained. We repeat, therefore, that so far as personal sacrifice, unselfishness, and devotion to his country are ...
