Are Sinners Fish? [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 12 February 1902

Are Sinners Fish? A delightful story is told of a kindly lady who, having acquired "a perfect gem of a coachman," asked in .a pleasant fashion after his family. 'What was your father, John?1 said she. ' Beggin' yer pardon, mum, he were a seeker of the 'errin'.' ' Ah 1' thought the good lady, 1 a clergyman whose family is reduced in circumstances.' We wonder if she will ever awaken to the fact that the " 'errin'" were not sinners, but fish.

SNUFF AND SNUFF-TAKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 12 February 1902

SNUFF AND SNUFF-TAKERS. We are, it seems, threatened with a revival of snuff-taking, and the fact gives a peg for an interesting article on the subject by Emily Hill, in the " Gentleman's Magazine." These being days of popular hygienic science, the first question for le gros public is, it is suggested, nob unlikely to'be similar to that asked by one oi Dr. Abemethy's innumerable patients: " Does a moderate use of snuff injure the brain?" "No," replied the famous physician, '/for no man with an ounce of brain would ever dream o/ using it." Other writers— but they belong to anti-hygienic times—dilate on " the inexpressible luxury attendant upon a pinch of fine old snufl after dinnerand a Poet Laureate readily tolerated what he called "the most innocent of sensuali ties," especially if the snuff-taker were an old woman. For some time past snuff-makers have been working, it is reported, fifteen hours a day. Should the once popular custom really revive there will be work for others than ...

There's 'Air. On a windy day, a well-known George-streeter who affects long hair looks like a badly-bound hair mattress, as he floats down the street. His serenity was recently badly ruffled during his stay in a certain town. A particularly fiendish young street arab rushed up to him and said: 'Run 1 Run for your bloomin' life!' ' Why, what's the matter ?' queried the innocent author. < There's a barber coming!' shrieked the imp.

His Answer. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 12 February 1902

His Answer. A certain captain, who for many years commanded a Transatlantic steamer, had the reputation of being decidedly crusty. It is said that he was once looking through his glass at a distant vessel, when a passenger came up and asked him what ship it was. The captain gave him a long stare, then said: 4 Go and ask the cook.' The passenger was not discon certed. He stared back at the captain, and replied, calmly: 'Oh, I beg your pardon, sir, I thought you were the cook.'

HUMOROUS COLUMN. Misunderstood. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 12 February 1902

HUMOROUS COLUMN. Misunderstood. They were sitting in the quiet moonlight, gazing upon the heavenly bodies visible above the chimney-tops. One of his arms was round her waist, one of his hands held hers ; and if he had possessed more arms and hands—which unfortunately, he did not—they would probably have been similarly engaged. In a word, there was not room enough between them for an argument. The music of a fine old organ from a church across the way floated to wards them, and the shrill "churr" of a cricket calling to its mate in the grass occasionally broke the stillness. They were having indeed, a heavenly time. « Frank, isn't it perfectly beautiful ?' she softly said, as the music paused for a moment. ' Yes,' he answered musingly; ' and they are said to do it with their hind legs.' And so the charm was broken. Frank thought his girl was alluding to the music of the cricket.

AUSTRALIAN COAL. A MOUNTAIN OF WEALTH NEAR SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 12 February 1902

AUSTRALIAN COAL A MOUNTAIN OF WEALTH NEAR SYDNEY. Thirty-five miles from Sydney is a picturesquely situated township whose history is closely identified with that of the coal-mining in- dustry of New South Wales. So far back as 1796 Flinders and Bass, during their adventurous work of coastal exploration, had seen under the high land and cliffs on which the township of Clifton is situated, a number of black lumps, which they took to be pieces of slate, lying on the ground. Not suspect- ing the real character of the lumps, they gave but little attention to them. About the same time us Mr. Clarke, who, with a number of others, had been wrecked on Cape Howe and thrown ashore by a violent storm, finding himself in an unknown region, and threatened with attack by hostile natives, undertook, with a portion of the party, to proceed on foot along the coast to Sydney, a distance of 300 miles, and obtain assistance for those left behind. It was a most difficult and dangerous journey. Several p...
