ARCADY'S TRAGEDIES. TWO OF THEM DECIDEDLY CONTRARY. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 17 July 1908

AROADY'S TRAGEDIES. TWO OF THEM, " DECIDEDLY CONTR ARY, Many' ot tho characteristic features of village lite In agricultural England are apt to" shock and astonish one who-, comes to tho knowledge of them alter Xar/iillarlty with towns; but some o£ those features In the parts which I now Inhabit are startling even to one who was countrybred In another part of the - kingdom. I did not expect Arcady to bo In tho least degreo Idyllic or Areadlan when I took up my residence In the heart of a corn growing country some, six years ago. I did not expect to meet re gard for sanitation, honesty over small things, Independence of spirit, or a str.ot regard for even the elementary laws ot morality?- and.so to find tho opposltes-^ dirt,- dishonesty, servility, and Immor ality-Illustrated in sadly striking fashion was no surprise to me. Still less was it astonishing to find that a village Is a hotbed of gossip, producing stories, which are tho nearest thing In life to spontaneous generation, with...

IT WAS HARD TO BEAU. Whon Mrs. Hamlin was particularly tired, alio WHS apt to refer to tho fact that Bobby had inherited a moat dis couraging trait of persistence from his father. "I never saw anything like tho way Mr. Hamlin hates to give in," alio said, plaintively, to ono of-her neighbours, after a trying hour with her spouse. "Ho's so persistent. Ho bought three hideous tie? six weeks ago, and he's worn them and worn, them in spito of all I've said.

DIETING FADS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 17 July 1908

DIETING FADS. Theories of dieting are without num ber, and still continue to multiply. Yet they are all based upon a funda mental misconception. Hero, as in everything else, it is impossible, or un reasonable, to take up a position which claims to bo absolute. Tno real virtue is moderation, both in theory and practice. A man or woman can live healthfully and comfortably on vegetarian foods, or raw foods only, or fruit only. He or she can achieve and maintain a high degree of mental as well as physi cal powers while omitting breakfast entirely. One kind of food at a meal is much bettor than. ton kinds, if the ono food is the right food. All these theorists are right, and all are wrong; for the point, in diet is not to find tho ideal food. Thore is no ideal diot; and if thero was, it would not fit ^ tho vory unideal men and women in tho world to-day. Tho object of feeding is to givo tho body materials out of which to build and sustain itsolf. This it will do op vegetarian diot, on raw...

Local Rates. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 17 July 1908

Local Rates. We have lately drawi) attention to the possibility of increased taxation' in the towns comprised in the lisr rigau shire, which may he levied by the council, and as that, which touches the pockets of' the'rate payer kindles the flame afresh, we deem it onr duty to again remind our readers that it is their duty to carefully study the matter in all its phases. Councillors are divided in their opinions as to whether it is better to levy on the unimproved Value, or the improved value of the laud for the purpose of increasing the amount of taxes collected in the towns of the shire. The new system of rating unimproved lands in municipalities is now on trial, and so far is proving very effective in causing speculators who own unimproved land itf municipal ities upon' which more than a nominal tax has been placed, to either improve their properties by building thereon, or to dispose of the lands to people who will im prove tliem.i " The Goulburn shire recently im posed a tax of...

OUR LADIES" COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 17 July 1908

LADIES" COLUMN. (By Penelope.) The hair waver is an almost indis pensible factor in the present day hair dressing, as the coiffure is so elaborate that every single hair is expected to take the appearance of twenty. Both for street and evening wear, the pad, from being as latterly only around the front and sides of the head, is now continued all'.round. For street ear, although puffs and rolls are often allowed to ap pear over the forehead under the hat or toque, the ornamental part of the head dressing is confined to the back, where it is allowed to assume quite an abnormal angle, contrived by the ar rangements of puffs over the back pad, which is worn rather high. For the present fashion very few women con fine themselves to their own hair alone, as curls and puffs all ready to adjust are not expensive, and the "teasing" necessary to ensure the elaboration of the coiffure is most injurious to the hair. For evening wear the hair is dressed high, and while not requiring so much care...

MIND YOUR OWN POCKET. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 17 July 1908

MIND YOUR OWN POCKET. Speaking of carefulness in business, a financier recently said that some men woro careful in only ono way, the way that had an influonco on their own pockot. Ho illustrated this point by the following story: A coal dealer whom I used to know shouted ono aftornoon to an employee who was driving out of tho yard: ''Hold on there, Jim! That coal can't have been weighed.. It looks to mo largo for a ton." Jim shouted back: "This ain't a ton, boss! It's two tons." "Oh, all right," said tho dealer, in a mollified teno. "Beg your pardon. Go ahead." In referring to tho financial stand ing of another man, tho banker con tinued: "It's no wondor ho has money. Ho is tho most suspicious follow I ever heard of. Ho rominds mo of a farmer I used to know. . This farmer, when ever ho bought a florft of sheep, ex amined oacli" sheep clostly to make sure that its flooco was all wool.

Messrs R. Thompson and W. Bailcie officiated as goal umpires. In the first quarter Berrigan had the wind which was blowing from the western end of fhe ground, con sequently they kept the locals 011 the defensive, and the play was centred close to Finley sticks.
