BURRA LAKE. CHAPTER. III. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 11 July 1925
BUJRRA LAKE. CHAPTER. III. A friend .remarked to me lately that he had proved conclusively that there is only one Taralga in the whole wide world. Possibly, too, there is, in all the world, but one Burra Lake, though there are several Burra Creeks, besides other places the nomenclature of which has Burra attached to it in some way, either as a prefix or an affix. Wo speak of Lake George, Lake Bathurst, and even little Lake Ed ward, but we transpose the two words when we say, not Lake Burra, but just Burra Lake. Some of the "old hands" give you a "double dose" of Burra when speaking of it, and 1 think that, corectly speaking, this is, like Wagga Wagga, Tilba Tilba, and ather places named by the aborigin als, correct, too, but those double names, besides being a redundancy, are something like the different pill advertisements' one sees—"one dose is sufficient." Perhaps I had better "burra" into some other subject. • Well, the Bailors have been having a well-earned holiday on shore, en...
ANTI-GLARE EYE SCREEN. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 11 July 1925
ANTI-GLARE EYE SCREEN. An improved model o£ the Auto peak, aiiti-glare eye shield has been lately produced in England, especial ly for the use of motorists. It com prises the ordinary model, which con sists of a peak formed of non-inflam mable celluloid, colored green, with the addition of two slots cut in it, and having a sliding piece of the same material to cover these when desired. It is attached by means of an elastic tape', and 'affixed to the bar carrying the peak is a long curved spring cov ered with a soft cloth, which conforms with the contour of the forehead and assists in maintaining it quite rigid. When used against the sun's rays during the day It is worn with the slots closed. But at night when ap proaching dazzling headlights, the slots are opened and most of. the glare is absorbed by the blank spaces. The visor can be hinged back when not actually in use. It is extremely light and costs very little.
MOTORING NOTES. OWNER BENEFITS BY ONE DESIGN. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 11 July 1925
MOTOKING NOTES. OWNER BENEFITS BY ONE SIGN. The wisdom of Dodge Brothers' pol icy of constantly developing one bas- j ic design instead of bringing out a new model every year is borne out emphatically in several ways, in the opinion of Russel Huff, director of engineering. Mr. Huff is also a mem ber of the board of directors of Dodge Brothers. "The best evidence, of couve?, :s the quality of Dodge Brothers' present product and the pronounced satisfac tion of our one and a quarter million owners. Additional . strong proof is supplied by the general inclination of the industry toward the sarna prac tice. I have heard more discussion of the subject during the last six months than ever before, and it has been particularly active since our ad vertisement, 'Constantly Improved But No Yearly Models,' appeared c.n. bulletin boards and in magazines and newspapers all over the country. "The public, which apparently had not previously given the subject much thought, was quick to sense the sig-...
FOOTBALL. ENGLAND WINS SECOND SOCCER TEST. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 11 July 1925
FOOTBALL. ENGLAND WINS SECOND SOCCER TEST. Twenty-five thousand people wit nessed the second Soccer test match; at the Sydney Agricultural Ground on Saturday last. The match was productive o£ some of the best football ever witnessed in Australia. Although defeated by two goals to one the home team are' to be congratulated on the magnificent fight which they put up against great' odds. "When the Englishmen played their first game in Sydney they gave our players a-lesson in the finer points of the game. The lesson was not wasted as our forwards and backs showed on Saturday that with a little more practice and experience they will be able to handle the ball as cleverly as the Englishmen. It was a game of thrills. and the whole crowd were excited throughout. There was not a dull moment in the whole ninety. Australia matched Iheir pluck and aggressiveness against rtheir opponents' scientific play and " experience. The gate receipts were in the vic inity of £141)0. This brings the to : ta...
AMERICANISM. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 11 July 1925
AMERICANISM. ———- i The auditorium seethed. Glaring incandescents bathed in a lurid light, the two perspiring youths who, naktid, save for trunks and shoes, pounded each other viciously about the ring. The fight was obviously nearins the finish, and the crowd, to :i man, was 'backing the sand-haired boxer as he closed again with his .'swarthy rival. "Kill the foreigner!" bo.ilowc-J the mob. "Knockout! Knocuont!" The South American, a celebrity in his own country, was game, but he crashed to the canvas before the on slaught of the favourite. Pandemon ium reigned as the referee's arm rose and fell ten times. A shrill voice rose above the tumult: "Them foreigners can't come here an' lick us Americans!" it shrieked i in ecstacy. . The referee raised the American's right arm in token of victory. "Sabilowitchiowski wins!" he an nounced. '

MAGNIFICENT EFFORT. BY THE PEOPLE OF TUENA. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 11 July 1925
MAGNIFICENT EFFORT. BY THE PEOPLE OF TUENA. The peoplp in some of our country centres have a happy knack of raising funds for char, ity when the spirit moves them. AS an instance let us cite Tuena; •' where a social was held on the 26th of June' for the benefit of the Crookwell and District Cot. tage Hospital, and a sum of £52/3/. was netted. The function, which was held in the School of Arts, Tuena. was a most enjoyable one. ' There were about 90 couples present. The organisers were unfortunate enough to strike unfavourable weather. Had this not been the case they con sider a much' larger sum would have been realised. Mr. Felix Hearne was the honorary secretary and treasurer, and he was supported by a strong committee, comprising Messrs. Hector and Dun can McKenzie and Robert Hearne. Mr. Hector Collins proved a very capable M.C. and the music was sup plied by Miss Smith, of Trunkie. A dainty supper was provided and served by the following ladies: The Misses McKenzie and Hearne, Mes...

WOOL REPORT Goldsbrough, Mort & Co., Ltd., report under date 2nd July:— [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 11 July 1925
WOOL REPORT Goldsbrough, ftlort & Co., Ltd., re port under date 2nd July:— .Sir John Higgins has placed his scheme to stabilise the price of wool before the country, and all connected with the production and sale of wool, both in this and other countries, hav been studying the elaborate proposals put forward for their consideration. Briefly stated it is almost identical with that under which the British Government acquired the clip during the war. As we understand it, the val ue of the whole clip will be estimated, and if that is, say, 15Jd, 20 or 30 per cent, will be taken off, thus reducing it to say 12d, and the wool will then be appraised, and the grower paid the appraised price. The wool will after wards be sold by auction in the usu al way, and if it realises more than the appraised price, any increase will go into the pool. That is to say, wool appraised at 14d, if sold at 17d, 3d would go to the pool, and the grow er would be paid his proportion of that'after expense...

COMPULSORY, VOTING. COMMONWEALTH ELECTORAL ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 11 July 1925
COMPULSORY , VOTING. COMMONWEALTH ELECTORAL ACT. A widespread misapprehension ex ists amongst a large section of Com monwealth voters, that enrolment is compulsory, but the voting is not. In point of fact, both are compulsory. A measure to this effect passed the Commonwealth Legislature in July, 1924. The penalty clause under the new Act reads:— Every elector who fails to vote ail election for the Commonwealth shall be deemed guilty of an off ence against this Act, unless a valid or sufficient excuse can be given for not doing so. The penalty for not voting is £2, and the penalty for non-eilrolment is 'also £2. There are 1,212,321 Commonwealth electors in this State. The coming election will be the first in the history of the Common ' wealth at which people will be com ' polled to vote or take the conse quences.
