The kind of Life not worth Living. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 25 February 1885

Tlic loud of Life n©t wotffcla Living". A life of mere money-getting' is always a failure, because you will never get as much as you want. The poorest people in this country are tlie millionaires,- and next to them those who, have 500,OOOdols. There is not a' scissors. grinder in New York or Brooklyn so anxions to make money as those meii who have piled up fortunes for years. The disease of accumulation lias eaten into them.

Primitive Methodist Band of Hope. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 25 February 1885

Primitive Methodist Band of Hope. The above society met on Monday, and was .fairly attended. The Rev. R. Jennings gave a short'address. He remarked that the death of Mrs. Parker that day had cast quite a shadow over the meeting, as a number of'their usual helpers were consequently absent. As this'was the last occasion ■on which he (Mr. Jennings) would attend their meetings, he was glad of their success thus far as a Band of Hope, and hoped, they would be even more successful in the future. He concluded by relating a number of excuses given by people for not becoming total abstainers. Mr. Gregory said that Bands of Hope were of vital importance to the young; but these societies were not doing all they were capable of doing.. . Intemperance was the greatest evil under the sun, and so if every Christian were a total abstainer, much of the evil would be checked. He traced the effects of this evil upon ministers and business people, stating that they need not go out of Bowral to see its ...

Woes of sm Inventor's Wife " It all very well to preach about working for the heathen" said one, as the ladies put up their sewing, " but I want some one to • tell me what to do with- my husband." " What is the matter with him ?" enquired a s. v! apathetic old lady. " William is a good .'ixiiAn," continued, the first, waving her glasses in an argumentative way, " but William will invent. He goes inventing around from morning till night, and I have no piece or comfort. I didn't object when he invented a fire-escape, but I do re monstrate when he wants me to crawl out of the window at night to try its success. Then he originated a fastener for the door that would't open from midnight until morning so as to shut out the burglars. The first time h<$ tried it he caught his coat-tail in it, and11 had to march around him with a pan of coals all night to save him from freezing." " Why didn't he pull his coat off?" "I wanted him to, but he stood round till the thing opened itself,...

I/ectore on General Gordon We have been requested to mention that ■ the lecture announced to have been delivered by ; Mr. A. Ritter, in the school of arts, BowreU, to-morrow evening on General Gordon, the Hero of Khartoum, has been vnavoidably postponed until to-morrow week, March 5. Our readers will remember that Mr. Ritter last week volunteered his ser vices in connection with the New South Wales contingent for the Soudan; but in consequence of his being a wee bit too < small round the chest he was rejected by the medical authorities. It is therefore on acconnt of his journey to Sydney and deten tion for several days in the barracks that Mr. Ritter has thought it advisable to post pone his promised lecture for a week.

THE BOWRAL RAILWAY STATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BOWRAL FREE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 25 February 1885

THE BO WEAL RAILWAY STATION TO THE EDITOR OF THE BOWBAIi FKEB EBESS. Sir;—It seems to me to be- perfectly ri diculous that there is no properly-furnished waiting-room at the Bowral station.. How is this? It is not because the department has not been made aware of the fact,, for the Vigilance Committee has continually been agitating in the matter. As a. matter of fact, the department recognises that something of the kind is wanted, for they have promised to build new premises but they have nothing more apparently than promise. It is time a tremendous stir was again made to have the improvements ef fected, for the winter is advancing, with piercing cold nights, and woe to the ladies or gents who will be compelled to wait on the Bowral platform half-an-hour at night for a coming train ! The thought is far from comforting. Trusting things will soon be altered. i - I am, &c., OLD HAND. 2SLtoK 1885,.
