DISTRICT NEWS. WALLERAWANG. RAILWAY IMPROVEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 5 June 1915

DISTRICT NEWS. (From our own correspondents.) WALLERAWANG. RAILWAY IMPROVEMENTS. Great, activity is being shown in the Wallerawang Railway yards at ,present A new island platform is being erected opposite the old station, and is getting into shipshape, and in the centre of it is being erected an up-to-date signal box. A large signal box is also being erected opposite the engine shed and another at the viaduct. - This will make three signal boxes in con nection with the railway yard, employing nine signalmen. Various .alterations are going on with the points and we are given to believe that about 86 points are to be installed. Some doubts as to the future of 'Wang as a railway depot still remains, but an onlooker has reason to think otherwise. Why are all these works being done if is to be cut out; a couple of extra lines would be quite enough if the trains ?were going right through without any locomotive changes , and the railway men and townspeople are still wondering what the Comm...

The Wages of War. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 5 June 1915

The Wages of War. (By the Wanderer. The Bills and the Jims and the Harrys Have left us, and gone to the war; And many a mother now carries A sorrrow she knew not before The rich and the poor there are fighting For LIBERTY, cherished and true; And now, while I'm feebly writing, Perhaps somebody's fallen you knew. God comfort the sisters and mothers Of lads who are killed in the fight; And include all your soldier boy brothers When you're kneeling in prayer of a night. Some homes have been saddd'ened this Morning; God grant that the slaughter soon ends ; The cable has wafted the warning, With* sorrowful news that it sends. But, comfort the sisters and mothers, And think of the boy in your prayer— The Jacks and the Bills and the others, They'rs shedding their blood, for you there. F. A. FITZPATRICK. (Brother to J. C. L. Fitzpatrick, M.L.A.) Wingham, May, 1915.

BREACH OF FACTORY ACT. DOOGOOD PRINTING CO. BEFORE THE COURT. OUR SIDE OF THE QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 5 June 1915

BREACH OF FACTORY ACT. DOOGOOD PRINTING CO. BEFORE THE COURT. OUR SIDE OF THE QUESTION. ? On Tuesday last the Doogood Printing Company was prosecuted on three charges —two emanated from the first. They were : — I/With working a girl, Elsie Rowe, over time without paying her. 6d. tea mpney; 2. With failing to enter it in the wages and time book; 3. With failing to report to Inspector that they had availed themselves of the overtime provisions. The managing director pleaded guilty and was fined in sums totaling £2 14s. Now, in justice to ourselves, we would like to say that, technically, we were guilty, as the manager did not know of the over time till too late to enter up, as the girl was asked to work only ten minutes more than her allotted time. ' We also state that every employee we have gets more than the award rate (this girl included); that all holidays are paid for; that generally lost time through sick ness is paid for. In verification of this^aBk any df our employees if this...

EPIDEMIC DISEASE. 'NIP IT IN THE BUD.' ' It's cntching' — this is what people say when a malady spreads among them as fire spreads in dry grass ; the phrase states a fact without explanation, which is a pity,' because if once you understand why ' it's catching,' you can prevent it catching instead of having to cure it — cure is often impossible, and is expensive. Now you can understand the flame running ' through grass, but you can only see the spread of disease by its results, because disease is spread by living germs or seeds, too small to see, and so light that air can carry and distribute them ; the only way to prevent Disease Germs 'catching' is to kill them. To kill an invisible foe may seem difficult ; but in this case it is easy and cheap, for you can kill Disease Germs by meeting them at every point with something in hourly use and immediately fatal to them. Science has given us this in Lifebuoy Royal Disinfectant Soap, and its germ-killing power in hospitals and sanitation...

LITHGOW TOWN BAND.

The band is ever to! the' fore for charitable purposes or for any object, for the betterment of the Town, and should be assisted' by every lover of music, and every citizen. It was through this shabby uniform that they lost the Quick Step competition at the recent Young contest. No less than ten of their members have volun teered, and being accepted for the front. This means a^ serious shortage in the memb ers, but efforts are being made to remedy this. An advertisement was placed in a metropolitan paper, asking for bandsmen who were workers, and they received fully three dozen replies. Several of these have already been placed in situations. Should there be any unafflliated bandsman in town who are desirous of joining, the Secretary would be pleased...

RIFLE RESERVE MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 5 June 1915

RIFLE RESERVE MOVEMENT. By '80S.' , One could not help noticeing of late the many press comments on- the . abovemen tioned subject and also the hints with re gard to compulsory service or in other words, conscription. Thus a few words on this very important issue, should serve to bring before many, the common necessity of becoming directly interested in what is a duty to the Empire.. Quite recently the 'Sunday Times' has divulged some appro priate letters from correspondents and, in turn, press comments. Indeed, Sydney has set a really fine example in the number of members enrolled and of the enthusiastic training carried out by them. Some months ago, the energetic officers of the Lithgow Rifle Club were successful in gaining sanction from , the Military Authorities for the formation of a Rifle Reserve in this district, and it was expected that in a town boasting of some 10,000 in habitants that a large muster of men would be recorded.

Persons styling themselves Dental Mechanics, Tooth Specialists, &c, are (doing so in order to deceive the public into the belief that they are duly qualified Dental Practitioners, which they are hot. Some do not even bother to call themselves anything — merely advertising the fact that they are prepared to supply Artificial Teeth, and dp Extractions Fillings, &c. ?
