CATHOLIC SHOW. GREAT DISPLAY OF FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 23 April 1910
CATHOLIC SHOW. GREAT DISPLAY OF FRUIT. The eighth Annual Show in connection with the Franklin Catholic Church was held in the local Town Hall yesterday, and proved an unqualified success from every standpoint. I he ex hibits were particularly attrac tive, excelling those of previous years both in point of quality and numbers. Fruit was the predominating section, the dis play being of a very high stand ard of excellence. In addition to the exceptionally large assort ment of fruit set out on plates, there were 40 entrants for the ' best case packed for export.' These were set out on benches, and made a truly splendid and substantial display.

Those who wish to see specimens of- the magnificent apples that can be grown in this part' of the State 'should not miss visiting the show. There will be found, in material form, the answer ...
BALL AT HUON-VILLE. A SUCCESSFUL FUNCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 23 April 1910
BALLATHUON YILLE- A : SUCCESSFUL FUNCTION. . A very successful ball was held in the Huonville Hall on Wednesday evening, in aid of the --Huonville Cricket Club. The ladies had spared no efforts in making the function, a succcss. and the result must have heen gratifying to the promoters, £12 10s being taken at the doors. Mr J. J. W. Hopkins and Messrs McCann Bros, supplied the music, which was greatly appreciated. The floor was in '. first-class order, and this, . combined with the good music, kept the room well filled with dancers; The main hall 'and also the supper room were tastefully decorated foi the occasion. All the dresses were so attractive that it would be 'difficult to particularise. Dancing was kept up till about 3 a.m., when everyone went away thoroughly satis fied with' 'the evenings entertainment. The especial thanks of the cricket club are due to the Misses Walton, who did the lion's share of the work in connection with the ball.
NARROW ESCAPE. Young Man Thrown From Horse. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 23 April 1910
FARROW ESCAPE. Young Man Thrown From Horse. What might have proved to . be a serious accident happened to a young Franklin resident named Leo Wicks on Wednesday morning. He was * riding along Franklin main road when, without any warning, the horse swerved out to the side of the road, with the result that Wicks lost his hold of the reins. In at tempting to recover' thom'he was thrown heavily over the horse's head, striking the back of his head and shoulder, with the result that he was stunned. Dr. Cummings, who was in attendance, found that, beyond receiving.- a severe shaking, no injury was sustained b- Wicks. Had Wicks been thrown on the road instead of on the side, where the ground was comparatively soft, he would undoubtedly have been seriously injured. As it was, it was some time before he re covered from his dazed condition, and will probably feel the effects of his spill for some little time to come.

SACRIFICED HIS LEG TO GET AWAY. MAN WHO FIGURED IN CAFE MONICO JEWEL ROB- &nbsp; BERY CONVICTED. A man who had figured in some big cases, including the Cafe Monico jewel robbery, when £40,000 worth of jewellery was stolen and two men were convicted, was himself sentenced last month at the Old Bailey for having harbored a thief. His name was Joseph Grizzard and his age forty-two, and he was placed in the dock with Samuel Barnett, sixty, a dealer. Barnett was indicted for feloniously receiving the proceeds of a burglary at a flat near Hornsman's Museum in London road, Forest Hill, and Grizzard tor Harboring barnett, knowing him to have committed a felony. Evidence was given by Arthur Andrew Gollinson, a convict now undergoing five years' penal servitude, who said he broke into Mr May's flat, and Barnett was the receiver.

Huon Telephone Service. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 23 April 1910
Huon Telephone Service. IT comes as satisfactory news &nbsp; that the Postal Department is making investigations into the existing conditions of the Huon telephone service. The incon- venience and annoyance to which those people who find it necessary to use the line are subjected were fully set forth &nbsp; in a recent article in these columns, and showed very plainly that the persons in question have a serious grievance. An inter- view with the Deputy Postmas- ter-General upon the subject is published in this issue, and it conveys the pleasing information that he is collecting the data necessary to enable him to decide how he can best effect an improvement upon the existing state of affairs. That something in this direction is urgently re- quired cannot for one moment be disputed. The majority at least of the subsoribers are sufficiently reasonable to grant that some delay in getting &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &...

HUON TELEPHONE SERVICE. Deputy-Postmaster's Views. &nbsp; INVESTIGATIONS PROCEEDING. Following up the article appearing in &nbsp; &nbsp; the 'Huon Times' last week, in which reference was made to the inadequacy of the facilities for telephonic communica- &nbsp; tion between Hobart and the Huon, the writer yesterday interviewed the Deputy Postmaster-General (Mr H. L. D'Emden) concerning the matter. Mr D'Emden said he had read the &nbsp; article with interest, and had caused investigations to be made into the matters set forth therein. He was fully aware that the business done over the trunk lines connecting Hobart with the Huon was rapidly growing, just as it was in other parts of the State. He was aware also that delays sometimes oc- curred in getting the connection desired, but that could not be avoided on trunk lines. It occurred wherever trunk lines existed. This was due very largely to ''rushes" for the wire at a certain time &nbsp...
