Our Recruits. HAPPY AND CONTENTED. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915
Our Recruits. HAPPY AND CONTENTED. In view of some derogatory matter given publicity to in the city press, relative to the treatment meted out to recruits at Lith gow, a 'Democrat' representative decided to make full enquiries into the matter. We recognised that our boys who volunteer should be encouraged in every way. If there was any injustice it should be remedied, and if the complaints were numerous the matter should be cleared up in justice to the local military authorities, and to assist tne recruiting movement, it is not tair that anything should be permitted to damper the ardor of these contemplating enlistment. Of course, in the earlier stages of the move ment men were inconvenienced by the military or police were powerless to alter it. Now, that the local training depot has been established, the authorities have a chance to overcome all difficulties. On Thursday a representative of this paper visited the local drill hall and explained his missive to Captain Eadie, the cour...

Stood by Till the Fight was Won. A WARNING. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915
Stood by Till the Fight was Won. ; A WARNING. The other day a much respected gentle man expressed the apparently deep-rooted conviction that Lithgow contained a hornets, ' nest. There may be- some locals who doubt thisj but we feel sure that, after the visit of Major Bracey and Mr. J. Ryan to Mel bourne, the Commonwealth Cabinet, and the military authorities who indulge in minis terial marionette string-pulling, have not the slightest doubt about its existence. Further, they have reason to know that when Lith gow hornets have a just cause, they do not nesnaie 10 anve tne sting nome. ti&a tne leading citizens of this town been at all dilatory, the removal of tthe Small Arms Factory would have been irrevocably de cided on by now. Thanks to their vigilance and ability, that national wrong has been stopped, and the eyes of our common sense and non-partisan or non-interested legisla tors have been opened wide. They have received an education in the matter which we feel sure they ...
WANTED?—AN ALDERMAN'S EAR. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915
WANTED?— AN ALDERMAN'S EAR. If we could get kind enough to a kindly alderman's ear, we would just whisper into it that Railway Parade, near the site fo the old fire station, ia simply howling for .a mouthful or two of municipal metal. It is on important place, too, being close to the post and telegraph office. Then there is a hole of considerable proportions in the foot path, not far from Messrs. Washington H. Soul and Co's., which could be advan tageously filled with a little asphalt.
POSTAL CHEESE-PARING. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915
POSTAL CHEESE-PARING. Again we feel it necessary to draw atten tion to the lack of attendants at Lithgow post office. The other morning there were a dozen persons waiting at the counter with one official to attend to them. He certainly was a smart and expeditious officer, but why the cheese-paring. It is not fair to the public and certainly not fair to the official who may be called on to do particular work in such a hurry. The office is alto gether too small for a population of eight or ten thousand people. Our Progress As DUUlllllUU, nUIUU ID O. TC1J ctlslAVYT auu UU' servant body, could, if they approved, ad vantageously make application to the Post master-General, Mr. W. G. Spence, who, we feel sure, would give the matter his earnest consideration and prompt attention.

Statistics show that there is more deaths from .whooping cough than from scarlet fever, but we have yet to hear of a case proving fatal when Chamberlain's Cough Remedy was used. It should be given at the first symptom, repeating the dose fre quently. The quick relief afforded by Cham berlain's Cough Remedy makes it a favor ite with mothers of young children. It liquidities the tough mucus, making it easier to expectorate, keeps the cough loose, and counteracts any tendencys towards pneumonia. Chamberlain's Cough Remedy has been used in many epidemics of whoop ing cough with perfect success. Sold every where.

TRADES HALL. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915
TRADES HALL. The management are just installing a practically new 15-h.p. Crossley gas engine, which they purchased on most reasonable terms for £10 (it is really worth £150). They are also putting in a new dynamo of 10.3 kilowatts, 110 volts, and. which has 1530 revolutions per minute. These are to be built in in the back portion of the hall,, a cement bed being laid down for the pur pose. As soon as sufficient money comes in the management intend to install elec tric light throughout. Mr. Rex (an expert) and Mr. Lean, who also knows his business, have the matter in hand.

Lithgow-Coming Birmingham of Australia. GOOD NEWS FOR LOCAL FOLK. We have recently been favored with a perusal of correspondence relating to a new „ industry at Lithgow. We; are -.now in a position to say that a large. Victorian manufacturer of harvesters and- agricultural implements intepds com mencing operations here almost at once for the erection of a large factory, in which to . manufacture the above.

' ' , . ?, This is, indeed, good news, and should . put heart into the business people, builders, etc. See page 3 for particulars of our Circu lation Competition. ? . ?
LITHGOW RECRUITING ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915
LITHGOW RECRUITING ASSOCIATION. The above body, a very worthy one, asks in our advertising columns for boxing, gloves, footballs, draughts, dominoes, etc., as well as magazines, books and newspapers to help provide amusements for the troops camped at Lithgow. The goods can be sent to. the Public School or to Mr. G. D. Rotton, hon. sec. We trust a liberal response will be the result of their effort. Now then, what about our musical folk— they are never behind in these th'ngs. , You will get up a concert — thanks.
HEROES IN EMBYRO. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 21 August 1915
HEROES IN EMBYRO. No less than eleven young men are In mates of the Lithgow Hospital as a result of operations for varicose veins. They have suffered this in order to pass the doctor for service abroad. As one remarked last Sun day afternoon, 'Some of the Turks will suf fer for this.' We 'could almost Bay 'Amen!' It speaks well for the manhood of Austra lia, that they are thus prepared to take a gruelling in order to uphold our Empire, even before they face the enemy.
