No title [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 26 June 1909

At the prison of St. Paul, at L,yons, there is a curious collec tion of pens. They are the pens with which the executioners have signed the regulation re ceipts for the prisoners handed over to them to be guillotined. At each execution a fresh pen is used, and the ink is left to dry upon it. In a favorable wind a fox can scent a man one-quarter of a mile away. Russia has a larger proportion of blind people than any other European country. Two out of every 1,000 of her people are sightless. King Edward, when Prince of Wales, never voted on any poli tical question ; but he always voted for the Deceased Wife's Sister Bill, which was a social, and not a political matter. Of a million girl babies born, 871,266 are alive at twelve months ; of boys, 30,000 less live through the first year.

Through Darkest Hartley on an Empty Tank. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 26 June 1909

Through Darkest Hartley on an Empty Tank. On a recent Sunday morning;, just as the Ka toomba roosters were hurling their first notes of defiance from the security of their harems, and the residents still lay wrapped in one great, compre hensive snore, that well-known and popular motor car, 'The Mountain Flyer,' slipped out of the ?city upon what was destined to be one of the most sensational journeys ever accomplished under pet rol. The party consisted of four, a Mr. and Mrs. Buggins from Comeby chance, and Mr. and Mrs. Juggins from Sod walls, while that well-known, resourceful and intrepid driver Bill had charge of i:lie car, and to this fact alone all but one of the party owe their lives, as the following narrative will show. Besides its human freight the car car ried ballast in the shape of a two-gallon demijohn of eyewater, a screwdriver, and a hammer, and it is to Bill's eternal credit that with this trifling ?equipment he took us through a journey besides ?which Shackleton's l...

The Valley of the Springtime. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 26 June 1909

The Valley of the Springtime. Ye whose lots are cast in cities, Come and listen while I tell it, Iyisten to the voice of nature Softly whispering through the willows, In the valley of the springtime. 'Neath the shade of golden willows Runs a streamlet softly murmuring, Rippling on its course forever, Undisturbed by joy or sorrow, In the valley of the Springtime. Waving grass and slender gum trees, Yielding to the wind's caresses, Basking in the golden sunshine In the valley of the Springtime. She whose sweet poetic fancy Named it Valley of the Springtime, Came, and saw, and marvelled greatly That a spot so rich in beauty Should be named by men so badly. Kver in 1113^ fondest memories, Though perchance the sea divide me From the land of golden sunshine, From the valley of the Springtime. Ity some other stream reclining, Musing on the days behind me, Once again I'll hear the music Of the softly murmuring streamlet Rippling on its course forever, Undisturbed by joy or sorrow, In the va...

The Arrival of the Mail Train. [WITH APOLOGIES TO R.S.] [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 26 June 1909

The Arrival of the Mail Train. [With Apologies to R.S.] [By Never Again! . Ivast issue of the 'Kcho' a scribe under the sobriquet of 'R.S.' gave vent to his sentimental thoughts in an article %essons of the Mail Train.' Our friend turns off the tap of his imagination after the mail train steams out of the City Railway Station, but had he been a fellow nnssencrer on a mountain tourist train, Math me some few months back, he might then have received suggestions for some wonderful copy on ' The arrival of the mail train.' My little experience, which I herewith attempt to describe, happened on this occasion at one of the principal Blue Mountain towns, whilst on my last holidays. lyike a great number of in considerate tourists, I made no arrangements as to which place of accommodation I would pitch my tent, and therefore chanced to pot luck in striking a good hash foundry. I may state that this was in the middle of the mountain season, and coining away from town for some weeks I conseque...

For His Friend's Sake. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 26 June 1909

For His Friend's Sake. Out beyond the blackly-outlined trees and rough bush line the sun sank redly to rest. Its last rays fell athwait the rude bed where the sick man lay, and, passing on, glanced upon the bent head of his companion. Alan Woodward knew that he was dying. He had been lusty and full of strength when that same sun rose that morning, and now, ere day darkened again to night, had come the call. 'Don't take on about it, P'ortescue.' He smiled faintly and ruefully, for even the effort of speaking taxed his fast failing strength. '.' It wasn't your fault, old fellow, never think — that. If one of us had to go, it was best to be me. I've always been a poor sort of a fellow, never of much account in the world.' The man beside the bed raised his face — such a drawn, haggard, pain-racked face, for all its youth. His words came thickly, grief dulling their intonation. 'I'd have given my life for you, Woodward — however you . are, where-ever you are, you'll al ways remember that...

Diet in Winter. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 26 June 1909

Diet in Winter. . The girl who wants to keep well all the winter must attend to her diet. People eat more in winter and exercise less. And what happens ? Their systems get clogged. Their digestive organs cannot cope with the excess of food, and disturbances of diges tion bring about a condition of self -poison - inp\ or fltirn-inrovicfliion. ' which is at the root of all the ' ' liver attacks ' ' and seediness so common just now. The individual subject to biliousness is^ more liable to chill and catarrh than the person with healthy digestion. Many a cold in the head, or influenza, is preceded by an attack of indigestion, because both indigestion and cold are due to obstruction to the circulation, and sensible dieting is a very important matter in preventing illness. In winter, especially, we should avoid over-eating, whilst taking sufficient simple nourishing food to keep in good health. Porridge and milk, cocoa, macaroni, eggs, and cheese, with butcher's meat once a day, are all su...

Letters to the Editor. TECHNICAL EDUCATION. Vn tt-tk umvou. Sir, — I crave a little space in your columns to place before your readers, and the public gener ally, the present position of these classes. The old school residence has been transferred to the Technical Branch, and will, in a very short time, be altered so as to make it suitable for the holding of classes. Mr. Hooper (Assistant Superintendent of Technical Education) paid a visit of inspection to the building on Saturday (19th inst.) and a de cision was arrived at as to the form these altera tions should take. As the building will be their property, they will be prepared to make any alterations and additions which circumstances may warrant. There are at present three classes in existence at Katoomba. The Dressmaking class, which has lately shown a desirable increase in numbers, could very easily be still considerabh' augmented Then there are. the Shorthand- and Elocution, classes, which, no doubt, will have many more pupil...

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

Varia. I have grown so tired of Katoomba with its School of Arts, and its weekly Hurry - Scurry Stakes with two starters, and its back-street Town Hall, and its enthusiasts who ' worked like Trojans' at getting up entertainments, and its Brisbane Exhibition meetings and all the rest of it that I have had to seek a quieter place. So I have come to Blackheath, and like it well. I think I remember reading something in one of jrour back numbers, Mr. Editor, that spoke in disparaging terms of that most wonderful sight of the Grose Valley that one gets at Govett's Leap. Why, it is one of the grandest sights you have. Who was it, at all, that failed to . appreciate it. Perhaps he had land in another street. I know by experience that that accounts very often for the attitude men take with regard to the Mountain sights. ?it # fr I like the people of Blackheath ; they are a friendly, sociable lot, and the welcome that they gave me made me feel sorry for myself and for them- too that I had del...
