LEAP YEARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 24 March 1905
LEAP YEARS. Tho yen r 1896 should be noted by ladies, because there will not be mother Leap Year until 1004. As nany readers have asked for an cx luualion of this wo may repeat tbc ftfiry of tho calendar. The extra day wnn added to every fourth year by Iconuphys, an Egyptian astronomer, ivhn reformed tho calendar of the Greeks ns far back as 357 n.c. It was 'ssiime'd that tho j-earhad an average, length of 305J days. But in roalily tho so-called solar year is 11 miuutes 10 seconds short of that calculation. For a long time the difference caused little inconvenience, but in tho lGth century the troubles over the moveaelo feasts led Pope Gregory XIII, to de cree that 10 days Bhould be tukon from the year 1582, by calling what would have bceu the Oth of October 'bo 15th. England and otner Pro testant nations held out against thia ?hange for nearly two centuries. In 1751, however, on Act of Parliament «rns piiRscd for equalising the Blyle, hy omitting eleven days after the 2nd of Septem...
"HOBSON'S CHOICE." [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 24 March 1905
' nOBSON'S CHOICE.' The familiar proverb originated with Thomas Hobsou, a famous car rier, of Cambridge, who was born -ibout 1544, and lived to his eighty nfth year. IIx travolled regularly for a long period between his home in the University town and the Bull, Bie hopsgote, carrying passengers as well is packages. It is said he wan the tirst person in England who lot horses for hire, and it was out of the regu Larity of bis mode of dealing with the animals thnt the proverbial remark arose. Every horse was sent out in its turn, and if from any causa a cus tomer objected, or wished a change made, old Hobson would curtly decide, ' This or none.' Hence the saying, ' HobBon's choice— this or none.' By steady attention to business the Cam bridge carrier became rich ; and amoug Ecveral gifts he is known to have made was the site for tho Spinning house, used by the Univcnuty authorities for the incarceration of loose womcu. During tho plague Hobeon's journeys between Cambridge and tho metr...

PRESENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 24 March 1905
riU&UNTS. It would be interesting to know how many ladies receive cigarettes as presents. That-smoking is increas ing amono women, nobody who keeps his eyes open can doubt, although it is, happily, etill considered improper for them to smoke in public, The prettiest form of emoking present for a woman is to give her a silver box containing a hundred cigarettes, with her pet name written across each in letters of gold. They should last her well over a month, as the most deter mined woman-smoker rarely consumes more than three cigarettes a day. No man will evsr believe that a wuman smokes a cigarette for enjoyment It is so easy by a few judicious com pliments to make her forget that she ever lighted it

The following prayer was written by Charles 1. in the year 1631, when he waB thirty-one years of nge_; and, ob it is not generally known, it will, perhaps, be read with considerable interest as showing the King's private humility: — ?

SHORT STORY. TRADESMEN IN PURGATORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 24 March 1905
fiUH BTOBT. TRADESMEN IN PURGATORY. I had been dining at tba hons* «f a County Councillor, an excellent : ellow, well-known and much respeced la Umi suburbs for the noble imm tea* tlon of fait views. The oonver atton I forget ; sor dees it appear to h»v» had any influence upon my ub sequent meditations. But the pictiu-oa on the walls — big engravings of the illustrated anecdotes loved of the great public — had manifestly a more potent effect. For I had no sooner reached my chambers, and put on slippers and a dressing-gown, than, sleeping, I dreamed a dream. And this is the manner of my dream. The place was large, solid, and well furniehed, putting -one in inind of a hugely successful drivate asylum for demented friends of the. wealthy. Tho Game idea was suggested by the presence of a smug respectable at tendant whose present duty (as I understood) was to show me over the * place. But I already knew, with thai pluvious information one invariably possesses when a dream begins, that th...

SOUSBSOLD MAKA6HIEKT. A HOUSEKEEPER'S CONVENIENCE. One of tho most useful articles that a busy house-mother can possibly have is a great square case of bags to be tucked on the inside of a closet door and filled with the dozens of small things which she is constantly UBing and for which some housekeepers are obliged to make long search when needed. The sli ape may. be varied to suit the ta6te. A very simple one is made of fine striped bed-ticking, ob long in shape, just large enough to fit comfortably inside the door on which it is to hang..

LOCAL NEWS. Th« Kate Xr. Arthur Plowir. The last issue of the 'Yass Tni bcne contains the following : The news of the death of -Mr. Arthur Flower, until recently in charge of the grocer y department at the Corner Stores, on Monday night, caused a widely sympathetic feeling ill the town. It was known that he was far from well, that ill-health obliged him to give jip active work a little while back, and seek change, rest, and medical advice. It was generally known also that he had developed consumption, but nobody, even amongst those nearest to him, seemed to realise that the end was so near. But recurring hemorrhages of the lungs sapped his strength, and he passed peacefully away on Mon day night at his residence in Dutton street. The fuueral took place on Wed nesday afternoon, and formed a very imposing procession. First went the members of Elliot's Band, play-, ing the ' Dead March ' ; then came the members of the Grand United Order of Oddfellows, ' Pride of Yass' Lodge, of which t...
