Too Many for Them. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 26 June 1909

Too Many for Them. When Mr. George Paulding, the eminent Ameri can engineer, was constructing a railway in the Philippines, he was much annoyed by the number of saints' days, each of which the workmen insisted upon celebrating by a general holidaj', much to the dislocation of his plans. He noted as a pecu liar coincidence that the maioritv of these saints' days immediately followed the one which wages were paid. So one morning, after his men had treated themselves to a couple oi saints' daj's in succession, and had returned to earn sufficient for the next general holiday, Mr. Paulding called them together and informed them that that day and the following three days being saints' days there would be the usual holidays. With the prospects of empty pockets and empty stomachs for so long a period, the}^ asked what saint in the calendar they had overlooked ? 'Saint Paulding,' said he, without a smile. He kept his word, and from that day he was not troubled with many general holidays.

The Spirit which Animates Some of Us. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 26 June 1909

The Spirit which Animates Some of Us. [By 'Onkofthem.'] 'Twas with amused interest that I read of the fierce assault and counter assault on the Iyibrari .aii's salary in the 'Echo's' report- of the School ? of Arts' Committee meeting last week, and to the uninitiated, the great unwashed, the intellectually debased,, that half dollar seemed to be having a rocky time of it. But I, and other members of the Committee who made it our business to attend this meeting, were out for loftier motives than re duction, we wanted extinction, and although the luck was. agin . us this time my party is growing, and it is only a matter of time when our vote will .stand a second count, and when that psycological moment arrives Wally will go out on his pink, the ?organ which the girls love so well, and our ruffled .sensibility will have been avenged.

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

- 3 3 ? H Wentworth Falls. | [From our Own Correspondent. ] A very successful social gathering of parishioners in connection with . the Holy Trinity Church was held. on Friday, June 18th, in the School of Arts. In the absence of the Rev. E. C. Robison the Rev. W. H. Croft presided. The interior of the hall, was a veritable blaze of wattle grouped in masses, round tall graceful treef eras' on high pedestals draped effectively with out tercups and pale blue draperies, while gay flags were judiciously employed, the whole effect being a delightful harmony of color. Cold weather had been anticipated, and heaters were in readiness, but were not re quired. One end of the hall was carpeted and furnished like a drawing room. The seating capacity was well taxed, there being a most representative attendance. A gener ous and much appreciated programme of an informal nature was submitted, including songs, musical selections, band ? records (during social intercourse), recitations, and games. Amo...

THE HOME PAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 26 June 1909

I The Home Page. 1 By Myona. Have you. had enough raiu since last I wrote to you? We have. It is so nice to see the sun ,again. Do you object to the word nice ? Some people do, but there are some things that it just fits, and sunshine after rain is one of them. The rain has been a good opportunity however, for making headway with mine own linen. Have you been using up the minutes, when you could do nothing else but sit by the fire and watch the rain pelting down, in making pretty things for the linen chest? I have been doing so myself, not that I have had much time, for my work has taken me out in all weathers and in all places. That is the worst of being a newspaper gossip. You can't call your soul your own. You have to be anything that the editor wants, think anything he decrees, at anyrate write anything he orders, and take so mail)7 different sides to order that you don't know where you stand. But now for the linen. What do you use for your slipbodices? Muslin is pretty but trea...
