TOMMY TELLS. HOW MEN'S IDEAS ON LAND VALUES DIFFER. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 15 November 1928

TOMMY TELLS. HOW MEN'S IDEAS ON LAND VALUES DIFFER. The Valuer-G'eneral is evidently not the ogre he is generally believed to be, according to a statement re cently made in the Legislative Coun cil by Hon. Tom. Shakespeare. Saith Thomas : — 'Quite recently, as a trustee of the South Head Cemetery, with a view to enlarging the area for the j benefit of the local people, I and the other trustees bought land to the value of £18,000. Immediately there was an outcry against us using it Tor cemetery purposes. In the effort that was made against the ti-ust they brought the Valuer-General down to the public inquiry, and his sworn ev idence was that the land in question, with the six buildings that were on it, was worth £11,500. As a result of that inquiry the Government de cided against the trust. Last week we had an offer for the land of £21,500. I took the matter personally to the Minister, and asked his pel'- , mission to sell it, and I said it had cost us £28,000. Before the Minister fo...

RABBITS WORTH £20. FUR AT 30/- A POUND. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 15 November 1928

RABBITS WORTH £20. FUR AT 30/- A POUND. Australians will be amazed, as I was, to learn that a rabbit with a good pedigree 'in England will bring' up to £20, and that pelts are being sold at £1 each; that Angora rabbit wool is worth 30/- a pound, and that at present in England, there 'ire held three international . rabbit shows a year (writes Max Murray from Lon don).. - The rabbit farm 1 visited was in Hampshire. A huge barn housed oVer 1000 rabbits. These were never al lowed out of their hutches for fear they would dirty their pelts. Each fully-grown rabbit had its quarters to itself. In one corner the fodder was stor ed. There were piles of clover, hay and cabbage leaves and oats and straw for bedding. -There was a card on each of the hutches giving the number of the occupant. Full particuiais were kept on a. card in the office. My host brough out one fine old tame veteran, for which many , times he had refused £20. 'On this farm they were specialising in chinchillas. By breeding ...

To Restore Clouded Teeth THERE is now a way to quickly lighten clouded teeth. Tender gums, too, are firmed; given the healthy coral colour that is necessary to set white teeth off. Run your tongu/'keross your teeth .nnd you'll feel a slii5#kry coating. That is . film. Old t-'P ei7 dentifrices won't successfully combaff it. That's why your teeth have regained 'off colour' regardless of what yo\ did. Now, in a new-type aentifrice called Pepsodent, those conditions have been met — you can clear that film off.

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 19 November 1928

TO THE EDITOR. Sir, — A paper calling itself 'Coun- try Life' writes against Country Kill ing. This is not the only extraordinary thing this paper does. It tries to make Stock Owners believe that it can represent their interests, and the interests 'of those who live on them — the Homebush Fat Stock Sales men — at the same time. On top of this, we read that the age of miracles has passed. Fancy a paper representing itself as the Official Organ of the Homebush Fat Stock Salesmen, starting to preach Country Killing. If it did, now long would it re main the Official Organ of people who make big money by reason of the fact that Country Killing does not exist? Country Killing is coming, be cause public opinion is stronger than the opposition paper which essays to represent conflicting interests, and 'Country Life' can rest assured that the people of this City and Suburbs are intelligent ana animal loving people, who will rebel against the diabolical cruelty suffered by Stock coming to Hom...
