With the Money. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 16 December 1905

With the Money. If you wish to be a grandee, (with a slender bank account), You will find it far from easy, find it hard thnt height to mount ; If you wish U- join society, and to hob-nob with the ' best,' First of nil secure the dollars, and the 'swells' will do the rest. If you come of n good lineage — shabby geutcel, as they say, You will find yourself neglected if you cannot pay your way ; Tho' your birth be e'er so gentle, and your name be good as gold, If you can't produce the 'needful 'you'U be ' left out in the cold.' If you've set your fond affection on a girl you think is true, Hurry up and line your pockets, or the consequence you'll rue ; For the highest bidder takes her ; takes her for bis very own. So be sure you've got tho money — if you've not, 'let her alone.' ' In conclusion let me tell you that you'll ? Mud this is 'alright,' You will find no SOUNDER logic— beats a lawyer's out of sight ; If you want to gain position, if you want to win your ' mash.' You will find...

Dan. Barry's Dramatic Company. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 16 December 1905

Dan. Barry's Dramatic Company. The ever-popular Dan Barry drew an excellent house on Wednesday night, when his company staged ' A Modern Cain.' or '' A Master Murderer,' at the School of Arts. The exciting drama aroused contin ual applause, and the dressing, scenery and accessories all olicited admiration. The piece was well played, the veteran leader especially being as strong and dramatic as ever. He was well supported by the company. Grant Hervey, the journalist who was charged with attempting to shoot Walter Baker, the actor, in Bourke street, Melbourne, was acquitted at tbe Criminal Court on Thursday.

On the Fringe of the Crowd. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 16 December 1905

6it the Ptkfi* -# &e [By ONT-odKEii.] ' The Onlooker sees most of the Game.' Iri the Arbitration Court the other day, the following interesting passage occurred : — Witness then asked for ' a iittle latitude ' to describe the work of a fireman. Judge Heydon. — We may be taken to know that. I have seen fires raked out and prepared. Witness. — Yes, but allowing me a little latitude, your Honor has not done it. (Laughter). The grimy fireman who made that caustic rejoinder uttered the accu mulated commonsense of about twenty centuries. '-In the doing of it ' makes an awful difference. We generally find the fellow that has not done it knows the most about it. You find that everywhere. Every streak of misery that flings lace under-garments about behind the counter of a dry goods store carr prove to'you that it is a farmers own fault if he is not a millionaire. And how often you hear fellows talking about the girls having nothing to do. Yet when you reckon up the per formance of an...

LECTURES IN RURAL CENTRES. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 16 December 1905

LECTURES IN RURAL CENTRES. Iu America, England, Germany, and other countries a system of regular lectures in rural centres lias been founded with remarkable suc cess. Conducted upon practical lines and dealing with subjects of mone tary interests to the producers, they are a scource of increasing wealth to the Nation. An account recently published, illustrates the practical method adopted. An American professor, lecturing in a dairy centre on the subject of selecting a cow for dairy purposes, does not confine himself to wearisome details and- uninteresting and incomprehensible, diagrams. The lecture is given in' the open air. On a stand, well in view of his audience are placed two animals, a beef-maker and a first-' class dairy cow. The' two are care fully compared, and the difference in points fully shown and explained In consequence, in a few minutes more valuable information is ob tained than is likely to be gathered by a lengthy studv, of scientific books, even if the far er car...

MUNICIPAL LISTS.x [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 16 December 1905

MUNICIPAL LISTS. A recent decision of the Supreme Court rules that : — ' No person is entitled to have his name on the Municipal list unless all rates are paid when the list is completed on January 7.'' This .decision is, of course, final and mandatory. The Corowa Council presumably will, therefore, have to recognise it in compiling the list of ratepayers eligible to vote at next election. If this is nof done, the election is liable to be declared void, and those gentlemen elected may be put to great expeuse and ousted. No doubt tlie operation of this ruling will result in a lot of ratepayers be ing deprived of their vote, although this can be avoided to a certain extent by proper advertising. Nevertheless, it would be extremely unwise for the Council not to re cognise a clearly defined law.

Sydney Woman's Letter. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 16 December 1905

Sydney Woman's Letter. [By Matsa.J We arc in an epidemic of schools breaking up. From early morn to dewy eve small boys and girls are practising dance sleps and reciting verse, or wurbling little ditties for it school conceit or breaking up, and anxious Mothers are deep in tbe mysteries of beam and gusset and band for concert frocks or fancy dresses, for each Mother thinks her particular olive branch the smartest and frocks it accordingly. Only for this and a few extra raisins in the grocer's windows, or an. extra yard of lace at tbe drapers, one would uot realize that Xmas is but a breathing space off. But it is so, and alas for tbe festivities of the days of our Grandmothers, they 'reaback number, and Christmas up to date almost passes unnoticed. This is a condition of things senti mental to be deplored, for the chil dren of this age are little old men and women and look on the old Santa Glaus business as something rather stupid and boring.

Earthenware Boats. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 16 December 1905

Earthenware Boats. ? Juvenal speaks of earthenware boats used by Egyptians on the Nile, and in some of the canals of that country. He speaks of them as nictae (painted). U-Ciuje these boats of baked earth were of various colours, due to the use of a subiUnre which made them buoyant by filling jp ue pores. Modern travellers have explained this by assuming that, us the Kgypliana of to day at times make use of rafts, which they keep afloat by a series of empty earthenware vessels fastened beneath them, eo it must haie been in earlier time*. Norden tells us : ' The inhabitants have recourse to the contrivance of a f'or'.t, made of large earthen pitchers, tied dose together, and covered with the leaves i'f palm trees. The man who directi the movements of the raft carries commonly in iiia mouth a cord, with which lie ri.-Ji« as -he passes on.' It is plain that in this description he is alluding to the same earthenware boats that are spoken of by Juvenal, and the epithet pictae it ju»tiiic...
