An Essay on Man. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 3 July 1909

An Essay on Man. Man that is born of a woman is small po tatoes and few in a hill. He rises up to day, and flourishes like a rag- weed, and to-morrow or next day the undertaker hath him. He goeth forth in the morning warbling like a lark, and is knocked out in one round and two seconds. In the midst of life he is in debt, and the tax collector pursues him wherever he goeth. The banister of life is full of splinters, and he slicleth down with con siderable rapidity. He cometh home at eventide and meet eth the wheelbarrow in his path. It riseth lip and smiteth him to the earth, and falleth upon him, arid runneth one of its legs into his ear. In the gentle springtime he putteth on his summer clothes; and a blizzard striketh him far from home and filleth him with cuss words and rheumatism. He buyeth a watchdog, and when he cometh home from the club the watchdog treethhim, and sitteth near him until rosy morn. He goeth to the racecourse and betteth his money on the brown mare, and the ba...

The Premier's Refusal. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 3 July 1909

The Premier's Refusal. The suggestion thrown out some few months ago that the Blue Mountains should send representatives to the Queensland Ex hibition, such delegates to take along with them all the views and magnificent attrac tions that abound round and about our Mountains, met with the approval of all » iigjULi, LlJ.i.lllVJ.lig, V_H,1A,\_IJIO VV1J.VJ JUClVt: Hit. Xll~ I terests not only of the Mountains, but the interests and welfare of all Australia at heart, and it is much to be regretted that the Premier has been unable to see his way clear to contribute a sum of money towards the carrying out of the laudable object, and has intimated that his decision is final, that a deputation on the subject would be use- ? I less and a waste of time. It is a greater pity I that the Premier should take up this posi !tion before he has had the opportunity of hearing representatives from the Mountains put forth their views. The Premier, as ?custodian of the people's purse, admittedly is quite...

The Best Sort of Husband. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 3 July 1909

. The Best Sort of Husband. It would, perhaps, be' easier to write an article of the sort. in negatives, and to turn one's sentences by pointing out the kind of man who never can and never will make the best husband ; but there are also, fortu nately, plenty of examples on the other side. The man who makes the best husband is the man who is not mean. iV, Of all creatures to live with, the mean man is the most likely to cause his wife to rue the day she became his. It is not 011I3' stinginess in lnone}^ matters that is repulsive-^-though that is .bad enough. The mean man stints in the housekeeping, but is generally lavish enough about himself. It is the poor wife who has to bear the jar and fret of all. the housekeeping niggardliness. But mean ness goes beyond that. It stoops to actions that cover the wife's cheek with blushes, and fill her heart with shame and anguish. No man who is mean can keep his wife's love, unless he drags her, down to his own level, and that is the, greatest ...

SPRINGWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 3 July 1909

| SPRINGWOOD. I [From our Own Correspondent]. The football match, Mt. Druitt v. Spring wood, which was ordered to be replayed last Saturda}' by the Union was decided at Emu Plains, and resulted in a decisive vic tory for Springwood by 28 to nil. The scorers for Springwood were W. Patterson (1), C. Hall (2), W. Smith (l), B. Han nam (l), T. Garrett (l), G. Webb (l), W. Barker (l) ; J. Garrett converting one from a very hard position. Rain made the game very unpleasant. , Within two min utes of the kick off T. Garrett crossed the opponent's line with a nice follow on rush. A noticeable feature of the game was the fine display of forward pla}' by C. Hall. In , every part of the match Springwood was the master. Undoubtedly Springwood 's football team this year is bucking up. Much indignation is felt in the Football Club at the way the Nepean Rugby Union have overlooked the fact to give Spring wood fair representation ? in the district matches, although they are second in the competition...

' And I raised myself   in bed and glanced round at my surroundings,   which were at once so unfamiliar to me, and in   some respects so absolutely unlike anything I had     seen before. I had a strong feeling of unreality,   and wished I could wake up properly and find out     where I was. Yet surely I was quite awake   already.

Know Thyself. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 10 July 1909

Know Thyself. lyet each one learn to know himself ; To gain that knowledge let him labour, Improve those failings in himself Which' he condemns so in his neighbour. How lenient our own faults we view, . And conscience' voice adroitly smother ! But oh, how harshly we review The self-same failings in another ! And if you meet an erring one, Whose deeds are blameable or thoughtless, Consider, ere you cast the stone, If vou vourselves be mire or fautless. Oh, list to that Small Voice within, Whose whisperings oft make men confounded, And trumpet not another's sin ; You would blush deep if yours were sounded. Or in self-judgment, if you find Your deeds to others are superior ; To you has Providence been kind, As you should be to those inferior. Example sheds a genial ray Of light which men are apt to borrow ; Then first improve yourselves to-day, ? And then improve your friends to-morrow. 'Was it a love marriage, do you think?' 'Certainly. All marriages are love mar riages.' 'Isn't that ...

LEURA. [Newspaper Article] — The Blue Mountain Echo — 10 July 1909

Eg 81 | From our Own Correspondent.] Some time ago the Leura Progress As sociation wrote to the Postal Department pointing out the advisability of securing a piece of laud at Leura for a post-office, as the present building is fast becoming too small for the increase and importance or the town. We have been informed this week that the Department has picked on a piece of laud at the corner of Megalong and Grose streets, right opposite the Methodist Church. This is no doubt a good position, as the town is decidedly going in that di rection, and it is expected that before long the School of Arts will be built in the same locality. Whilst out shopping on Monday last Mrs. Fowler had the misfortune to drop her purse containing a good sum of money, but for tunately; it fell into good hands, and when advertised for it was returned to the owner none the worse for its night out, while the finder was rewarded for. her honesty.
