THE WOOL OUTLOOK. SAFETY LIES IN MODERATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 19 November 1928
THE WOOL OUTLOOK. litUlltltlltllilJIIIIIItlllllHtllllllltlllllllllltlllltlltlltlllllllllMin SAFETY LIES IN MODERATION. Winchcombe Carson Ltd., report — The difficulty of forecasting the wool market is shown by the prophecy of a leading American authority made at early October. He stated that raw wool prices will probably con tinue weak and decline a little furth er. Those words were scarcely writ ten when prices for the raw material commenced to harden. The fact is that sales in Australia, with the spec ial competition of Japanese, Russian and Australian millmen with which they are exclusively favored, have become the world's establishes of wool values. There is a little doubt that the millmen abroad were 'at sea' regarding prices when Austra lian sales were held up by the water front strike. In London in September Australian 70's fine merino fleece wools were sold at 41d. on a clean scoured basis. That figure equals 37d. to 38d. in Australia. The same wools have sold in Sydney on a...

WHILE THE BILLY BOILS [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 19 November 1928
WHILE THE BILLY BOILS 'Red Ned' sends this story: — I'm writing from Daly Waters which I reckon is the most isolated telegraph station in South Australia. The pop- ulation of the town is about three whites, forty aborigines and I don't know how many dozen piccaninnies. The nearest neighbours are about 60 miles at Mayfield Springs. W. Holtze has been in charge of the telegraph station here for the last thirty years, and for one period of seven year's he did not see a white woman. Since then the coming of motors has result- &nbsp; ed in women passing and having a cup of tea about once a year. Al- &nbsp; though the local postmaster organises the delivery of postal matter over the largest territory of any one office in the Commonwealth — his boundaries are Queensland on the one side and West Australia on the other— he has only about a dozen people who re- &nbsp; ceive letters. ♦ t- * ; He may have come from Blighty, Sydney, or any other place, but he seemed a sim...
