' Lullaby,' The night winds say; ' Hushaby,' ' The soft breeze Mows. ' Sleep well till the coming day.' Not a trace of worldly care Is there hovering in the air — That baby knows.

Passing notes. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 31 January 1905
Passing Holes. 3 I From London it i£ cabled that tbe Australia^ Agricul tural Co. has declared a divi dend of /'i ios per share. This company is the largest coal proprietary iff the New castle district, -where the Owners precipitated the recent trouble in a determined attempt to reduce the wheelers' wages by 10 per cent. The Co.'s shares are £10 each, and the present dividend is equal to 15 per cent. T- f -? In the early days of this colony's history, the A. A. Co; engineered and received a grant , of pne million acres of land for *' agricultural purposes ' — absolutely a gift, with an only ' condition that ^1,000,000 was to be spent on improvements.

Co. has made coal-getting an ' agricultural purpose,' and has gathered in many hundreds of thousands of pounds as a result. It is an open qu...
