MOTORING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 29 March 1923

MOTORING NOTES. -: o : -. A motor speedway on up-to-date lines will probably be available near Sydney within a couple of years. The "Referee'' (Sydney) states that Mr. Albert John Hunt- ing is promoting a company with a capital ? of £250,000 to construct a motor speedway í for motor car and motor cycle racing. The !? local Land Board recently granted Mr. *? Hunting a lease of 75 acres a few miles out . of Sydney in the southern angle of the / Maroubra Bay and Long Bay tram lines I for the purpose. It is stipulated that the new company must spend £100,000 on the property with- in the first three years frfom October 1st, when the lease will become operative. The terms tentatively agreed upon are'£200 per year for the first three years, and £1100 per year for the remaining 25 years. It is estimated that the speedway will be ready ^ in about two years, and it will accommo £ date 100,000 spectators. |, Althohgh the scheme is not yet complete, -' it is proposed to build a saucer track a '...

Longreach Cricket Association. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 29 March 1923

Longreach Cricket Association. -___ z n ; _____ The executive of the Longreach Cricket Association met on Monday night last when Mr. S. S. Clark presided, and there were also present Messrs. R. F. Creaghe, A. Sav- age, H. B. Menzies, V. Hurd, and the sec- retary (Mr. E. H. Glasson). ^ The correspondence included a letter from J. C. Sale (of Weeumbah) written from Sydney, in which the writer stated he had noticed by the "Leader" that the association required guarantors in connection with the Hartigan tour. He would be pleased to guarantee £5/5/- towards this object.-. (Applause.) Messrs. Snelling and Co., Rockhampton, wrote re trophies for the Longreach-Harti gan match, particulars of which were prev- iously given in these columns.-The sec- retary reported that these prizes had not yet been presented to the winners, in fact, the averages had not been gone into.

Correspondence. WATER! WATER!! (To the Editor "Longreach Leader"). [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 29 March 1923

Correspondence, ? ? : o : WATER ! " WATER ! ! (To the Editor "Longreach Leader" * Sir,-Water ia a necessary element to mankind. It is more necessary perhaps for Internal than external use, as applied to the human body. That many people cheerfully deny themselves the bath, our olfactory nerves tell us, without other proof. The inclination" to wash is not nearly as prevalent as it might be. Longreach needs a ba-er-water sup- ply, (it has plenty of whisky) and there is presumably an ' unfailing source in the Thompson River. But as the Thompson River does not run down Eagle street, the question agitating the community is to make some of it do so per medium of pipes. Different opinions are expressed as to the best me,ans of pumping, supply-tanking, and purifying. Pure water does not matter so much for external use, but it certainly does for internal, except when mixed with whisky, which kills all germs-at least they say some Longreach whisky does. Col- lateral with the yell for water I r...

My Lady's Toilet [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 29 March 1923

My Lady's Toilet - ? ?? ? ..- . r\ ? -_ r . v . ---- ^ t In the elegant days of the 18th Century, my lady's toilet was a lengthy affair. This was chiefly due to the elaborate coiffures ^then in vogue. But the beauties of that period were famous for their brilliant complexions and graceful figures, and the following simple recipes, some old-fash- ioned, some/modern, may not come amiss to my lady of the 20th Century. THE ETERNAL FEMININE. , Most women will suffer anything in order to improve their looks. In order to keep lier complexion in its pristine freshness, the 18th Century "belle" subjected herself to a most painful "skimming" process, I whereby the old skin was peeled off with carbolic, leaving the new skin underneath' I exposed, _ Crude as the method was, the | theory was excellent. ' Everyone of us has a clean new skin just ( ' below the soiled outer one, that is now | visible. The modern application of this . principle is to use Mercolised Wax. This ' is applied just like o...

Recovery in Wool Values. CAN PRICES HOLD? [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 29 March 1923

Recovery in Wool Values. rCAN PRICES HOLil> ? Winchcombe, Carson Ltd., Sydney, re- port :-"The dwonward trend in wool prices Jhas apparently been .arrested. Just as at the initial stages of the weakening irregu- larity was noticeable, so, when the menel- ing process set in, a spurt followed by a lull was evident before prices generally re- gained stable levels. Under the influence of renewed French, Italian, Belgain, and to a lesser extent, German competition, a strong inquiry from the Colonial Combing, Spinning, and Weav- ing Coy., and also the continued support of Japan and America, the market has prac- tically recovered to late February levels. Yorkshire, in addition, shows more desire to do business. The top linos of the choicer merino clips are the only offerings which have not leached former buoyancy. It is' quite a new position for the finest merino woos. Since open market selling was resumed, they have consistently been in the van in any upward movement of prices. Relat- ...

[ADVERTISEMENT.] GREGORY ELECTORS. I wish to place before you my reason for coming: forward as a candidate for the Gregory, and also to give a general out-line of the policy that I will advocate and sup- port should I be returned as the repre- sentative. In the first place I consider that the in- terests of Queensland are being sacrificed for party and personal advantages, and that the present unsatisfactory industrial and economic conditions are the result of the ill-advised legislation and administra- tion of the present government and its past leaders, who have increased taxation, in erased the public -debt, and increased un- employment. If the present administration Is continued, taxation must be further in- creased, and It is even now being gradually loaded over on to the shoulders of the em- ployees both directly and indirectly by such j[ legislation as the "Unemployment Insur- ja ance Act" and "Government Gambling £ Sweeps". h In regard to the future policy of Queens v land, ...
