BUNGENDORE NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 2 April 1915
- BUNGENDORE NEWS. SPLENDID rain has fallen, it com menced with a heavy thunderstorm on Monday about midnight, and up wards of 2 inches has been registered up till 4 p.m. on Tuesday. Some very heavy hailstones fell in the night, and in places along the rail way cuttings close to town they were piled up nearly 3 feet deep. The rain will do an immense" amount of good as most of the tanks and wells had gone dry. The creeks are running nicely, and had a thorough cleaning out which was much needed. The weather is still showery and very mild. Our bank closed on Wednesday evening. Up to the present we have not been able to induce any of the other banks to open here.

FRIDAY. APRIL 2, 1915. A LECTLfRE ON AFRICA.

KODAK'S LOSS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 2 April 1915
KODAK'S LOSS. Kodak, Ltd., of Brisbane, suffered considerable loss through their rc cent fire, but are now carrying on business as usual. Had it not been that Wunderlich ceilings were affixed throughout, there is no doubt that the damage would- have been much greater than it was. In several places on the top floor the paint was scorched off the ceilings, but the metal itself 4vithstood the flamies. Such experiences as this bring per tinently home to one how valuable the steel ceiling is as a fire resistor. And the 'best of it is that artistic ef fect need not be sacrificed to gain the extra security. No ceiling com pares with the Wunderlich Ceiling for beauty of desgn and permanency. And the case with which they are kept clean" is another argument in their favor. Just water and soap. That is all one needs. We under stand the 'firm publishes a big cata logue of interest to all prospective builders, and sends it free to any in quirer.

iRECORD JAPANESE WOOL i SHIPMENT. .As ? -a:buyer of'wool no fault can be -found with Japan this season. Last week's mail steamer took away a record shipment from the port of Sydney of over 11,000 bales of wool. Commenting on the matter, Winch combe Carson point out that Japan ese competition has been no small factor in keeping wool values on eatisfactory levels. 'Export; to Japan to date since July 1 total 46,214 bals--considerably more than twice the quantity shipped during the whole of the previous year. Fine merino wools of good length have commuanded the lion's share of the biddings on this account but low grade skirtings have also been pur chased heavily. Up to the end ot December crossbreds were taken freely, but an embargo on the ex portation of this grade, announced early in January, prevented further business. This bar to trade, was however, recently lifted, and-cross. bred purchases have be'n resumed;

Gundaroo. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 2 April 1915
Gundaroo. &nbsp; &nbsp; Owing to deaths and departuros from the district there has been for some time past a shortage of local, magistrates in this centre, and as the two justices who remained were not always available the Department of Justice was approached on the matter of ad ditional appointments to the local Bench. These have now been made, Mr. J. .B. N. Osborne, of "Bowylie," and Mr. J. W. Blewitt, of " Kia Ora" being gazetted ma- gistrates. There should not in future be any difficulty in securing local justices upon occasions when the P.M. is unable to attend court here. Notwithstanding the drought and the war the usual Easter exodus of local holi day makers bound for Sydney promises to take place. In a small way we have here an illustra tion of the benefits accruing from irrigation. Mr. E. W. Kershaw, of " Wingrove," 'Dairy Creek, has, by the judicious storage of water and irrigation of his garden, com pletely defied the drought, and has at pre. sent a displa...

THE RECENT EPIDEMICS OF SMALLPOX AND DIPHTHERIA. \Vould certainly not have attained such proportions if the hygenic fact were more generally known that the disinfection of the mouth by a reli able and harmless antiseptic is a great protecting factor, not only against such local throat diseases as diphtheria, tonsilit:s, quinsey and sore throat, but against all ailment= where the infection is through the throat or respiratory tract. By put ting three drops of SANDER'S EU CALIPTI EXTRACT' on a piece of loaf sugar allowing it to dissolve in the mouth, that cavity is thoroughly disinfected. The volatile nature of SANIER'S EXTRACT makes it pen etrate every crevice. SANDER'S EX TRACTO is not nauseous nor depres sing like the common eucalyptus, and possesses great antiseptic power. By using SANDER'S EXTRACT you avoid the uncertain composition of the .lozenge; you have the benefit of the strongest antiseptic that can be usen with safety, and the result is protection from infection.

CHAPTER IV. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 2 April 1915
CHAPTER IV. Three weeks of the' time given to Blanche Carew had elapsed. The " change in her distressed me beyond words. She looked like a shadow of- her brilliant and beautiful' self. !No gay words or happy smiles came now to those pale silent lips. The girn looked as though her heart was breaking, and from her sad joyless face I saw'she was already deciding in her own mind to give up Hugh Mostyn. She made no more com plaints to me; that one passionate burst of weeping was the last--at least in my presence. She did not even mention the subject which fit led both our hearts. She looked hopeless and wretched beyond words. I wondered whether Allan Charlton noticed the difference-if he knew what had driven the light brightness from the fair young face. I went to-,see Blariche the day after my..interview-with- Mr. Charlton,, to ,tell her Itha!t I was going to Hastings with Helena. . '"I shall- not. be here to know your your decision, Blanche," "I said to her; "but -you will never b'e on...
