The coirimcmorative gathering on this ocoasiori, as previously, took the form of a tea meeting and concern ine catering tor tne rormer was in the hands of Messrs. Liddiard Bros., Darling street West, who have a rrputation for doing such things in good style. The concert pro gramme, as arranged by the energetic secretary, Mr. John Clubb, was varied and en joyable, there being an absenoe of those inter vals between the pieces; which invariably mar amateur entertainments ; the songs closely . followed each other, and; judging by the hearty applause accorded, were appreciated.

PENNY SAVINGS BANKS. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 23 May 1885

PENN1 SAYINGS BANKS. Nothing is more encouraging for the permanent improvement of the labour ing classes than the success of savings banks. It is a very old proverb which says ' Take oare of the pence and the pounds will take care of themselves.' It is very old, we say ; but, fifty yews ago, who thought of acting upon it? The daily labourer of that day had neither hnnn nor nam for the futnrc. He worked whilst he was able, spent all he earned as fast as he got it, and looked forward to ending his days in the poor house. His life was a hard and con stant struggle. With rigid economy some might have been able to save a few pounds. But a few pounds would be no provision for sickness or old age and would at most keep him out of the worituuuse a snort lime. v anuus causes have since contributed to improve the lot of the working man ; he has shorter hours of labour and higher wages ; the use of machinery has cheapened many necessary artioles ; and enterprise has opened up ne^v avenues of i...
