A Lethal Flower. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 22 June 1901

A Lethal Flower. BY A BANKEB. In the midst of summer there may occasion ally be seen, standing erect a few incheB above the surface of the water of quiet tarns and locks, the gorgeous golden flowers of that strange carnivorous plant, knpwn as the Bladder-wort. This astonishing pro digy of nature, although bearing blossoms similar in character to several other ordin ary flowers, is entirely different in almost all respects, both to land and aquatic I plants, for it has no root, nor ordinary leaves, bearing instead a number of float ing bladder-like appendages, which when examined are found to be most marvellously constructed insect-traps. Around • the mouth of the deu are arranged a nnmber of inviting filamentary appendages, whioh the little aquatic crustacean or beetle perhaps mistakes for its favourite food. It hovers about the delicious-looking morsel, and then finds that a still sweater delicaoy, whose fragrant aroma. issues through the partly closed orifioe, is Btored within. Pr...

GENERAL BOOTH. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 22 June 1901

GENERAL BOOTH. I only saw this picturesque and momentous man twice, and I have never spoken to him; but, perhaps all the better, I was able to study him. The first occasion was once when I was crossing from Calais to Dover ; the other occasion was at the funeral of his lamented and noble wife. It is impossible to see General Booth for a moment and ever forget him, for be has one of the most strik ing faces I have ever seen. It is, as 'twere, drawn on granite by a penoil of steel. The rigidity, the clearness, the firmness of the lines,, making it difficult to believe that it is living flesh and blood, and not the hardness, the coldness, and impenetrability of stone. The face is thiu, long, hatchet-shaped, and yet the lines are fine, and even noble. The nose—more like the beak of an eagle than the nose of an ordinary man—juts out in a promoutory. It is as large and command ing a nose as that of Wellington, but i^s finer in cut and in shape. Then there is the long, slightly shaggy bear...

IN PRAISE OF WOMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 22 June 1901

IN PRAISE OP WOMAN". Max O'Eeli, has discovered only £wcf countries where men are in leading strings —hia own and the United States. Of the women of both lands he discoursed with enthusiasm. The French wife, he said,, Is her husbanil's friend, confidante, and busi ness partner. To this circumstanoe is due, in liis judgement, the fact that .France is to day the richest country in the world—rich est, that is, iu evenly distributed wealth, 72 per cent, of the population outside Paris owning their homes. He went on to affirm that French women are supreme in tha politics of matrimony. She knows it is a question of remaining, not beautiful but " interesting; hence her little bustling ways and her varied manner in doing her hair. Iu this country mavriiigo was looked upon as the end of love-making, but in France, after marrying your wife, you had to win her—a process very pleasant. If so many kisses were not indulged iu before marriage in this country there would be more afterwards. In Fran...

NOTES AND COMMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 22 June 1901

^.Tue English law relating to tho, licensing • of flro arms should, with advantage,. bo placed upon tho statutes of Australia. Tho destruction of tho wild bird and linimnl lifo of our land by " shootists," who sally forth every half holiday to blaze away at alltbatflics or moves, is deplorable." This .Avon ton destruction of life carries with it tho danger of a widespread calamity. Birds are Nature's checks on exuberant insect life, and if they be diminished then tho unrestrained propagation ot liitlo lieastisca will domiaato creation. Other lands have suffered till laws have been framed to restrict the sla.vina'of the native birds avid animals, and it is high time that Australia realises the need of legislation as to tho indiscriminate possession of firearms. Small boys, overgrown boys, so-called mon, and all sorts'of other fellows posscBB ikoarms to the imminent danger of everybody. * What a wontlorful tliin''is legislation 1 In Oluna certain laws from time irumemorable hiivo been...
