Wales, "to establish'an up to-date and fully started organisation'to deal with the various problem's that confront the sheep Industry* and annu- ally rob Australia' <- ol'''a considerable' amount ol' wealth. This organisation .should embrace all phases of'the.indus- try, and, by advising »and teaching^'in the matter of production 'and market- ing, and at the same time by attacking the posts, parasites, and*'(liseases that annually damage our flocks, help to preserve and foster Australia's greatest wealth-producing- industry."

By the time the boy *was 12 months' old, the Bible vas an open book to him. At the end of two and a half years, he could answer any question dealing with history and gpography, and then turned his attention to languages.

CAPTAIN COOK The Hawaii Monument [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 7 October 1926

CAPTAIN COOK The Hawaii Monument The spot whore Captain James Cook, the famous voyager in the South Seas, landed in Hawaii, which he discovered, is to be marked by a monument, funds for which are being collected by the Pan-Pacific Club of Honolulu. Among the promoters of the movement is Sir Joseph Carruthers, former Premier of New South Wales, who has been on a visit to the island and recently visited the historic spot.               Captain Cook landed at Waimoa in   1778, the first white man to set foot on Hawaiin soil. Here he obtained food and water for his ships. He com- memorated his landing by carving an   arrow in the face of a large rock. This sign is still to seen. It is near the spot where the American aviator,   Commander John Rogers and his crew were taken ashore after their failure   to make a non-stop flight from the American m...

"SERVICE" Master Builders' Slogan. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 7 October 1926

"SERVICE" Master Builders' Slogan. In Ute-minds of many people there lurks' an inward distrust towards any attempt at combination. The popular theory Aa that such efforts arc the out- come of a desire to secure themselves against possible loss," and at the same time ensure handsome returns at the expense of the comrnunlty.. The first part Is doubtless true, and Is only u.s It hhould be, for what good is to be gained from thriving upon the dis- comfort of others? The regularity of business is maintained upon adequate return for services .rendered. ' Unem- ployment Is created/by the stoppage in the flow of natural compensation, and ono damaged cog In the wheePof In- dustry will dlslpcate the «smooth work- ing of - the whole machine. Self-pro- tection ,-ls recognised as Nature's - first Jaw, and to combine in an effort of this description* is only within the bounds of reason. Thor present-day high standard 'of living (whether rightly or wrongly' it' is not my intention to discuss) is d...
