Correspondence. (To the Editor of the "Echo.") [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 18 July 1925
Correspondence. (To the Editor o£ thc "Echo.") Dear Sir,—X beg space to reply to. "Taralga Native," who seems greatly incensed at something 1>« read in the "Daily - Telegraph," but lie does not appear to have the requisite courage to contest the &lt;:ns* through the col umns of that paper. First and' foremost permit me to say I question the truth of -two of his statements, viz., 1st, "that he is a Taralga native," and SncU "that he does not know who the corespondent of the 'D.T.' is." I may be wrong, but small items like that would i.e ss nothing to my valiant critic who sail ed in so bravely, but whose.cauruge gradually faded away tii. the llnal paragraph finds him seeking shelter behind the hedge of a r.oin-ite-plume. Now, Mr. Editor, is I '.iniB.-stand the first essentials of the critic i&lt;re the knowledge that he can show the falsity of the other's arti;!?, then tear it to ribbons and hold the writer and the article up to ridicule (it he feels very bad about...
PUBLIC SERVANTS DISLIKE GOING TO CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 18 July 1925
PUBLIC SERVANTS DISLIKE GOING TO CANBERRA. i Commonwealth public servants, particularly those with children at tending secondary schools or beginn j ing work, are disinclined to transfer j to Canberra. Mr. J. R. Collins, Secre tary to the Treasury, told the Federal Public Works Committee last week. He thought that officers to be trans ferred permanently should receive at least six months' notice. Though off icers said they would not allow their children to enter the service, Mr. Collins said he thought such children should get preference when openings in that service occurred at Canberra.

NEW SHOWGROUND FOR CROOKWELL. NEGOTIATIONS FINALISED. READY FOR 1927 SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 18 July 1925
NEW.SHOWGROTJND \ FOR CROOKWELL. NEGOTIATIONS FINALISED. READY FOR 1927 SHOW. For some time past we have been keeping in close touch with the ex ecutive committee deputed by the general committee o£ the Crookwell A., P. and H. Society to bring to frui tion a new showground proposition. We have • refrained from referring to the matter hitherto for obvious rea sons. The best interests of those to whom the job was relegated was gol den' silence. The committee have, in their wis dom, signed a contract for the pur chase of'"Greylands," and we congrat ulate them 011 their choice. It should make an ideal showground, with pro vision for a large, natural, level ring. "Greylands" is conveniently situat ed and an ideal spot for the purpose. The committee of the A., P. and H.' Society have long since realised that the present showground could not be converted to fill the altered require ments that command the considera tion of the committee. This fact was emphasised by the President (Mr. S. A. ...
COUNTRY PARTY. (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 18 July 1925
COUNTRY PARTY. (To the Editor) Dear Sir,—It was reported in the Press a short time ago that the .Graz iers' Association, by resolution, de cided to recommend the advisability of changing the name "Progressive Party" to "Country Party." Again, the other day, at a meeting of the Progressive Party at Glen Innes the same suggestion was made, the object being 1:0 doubt to bring it into line with the Federal Country Party. But whatever the object may be, one thing is quite certain, that there must be a linking up of the anti-Socialistic foices so that a solid united front will be able to meet the common enemy at next election. This ought to be and can be done. I note Colonel Bruxner is reported to have said, at the Glen lunes meet ing, that seats were lost to the Na tionalist Party by candidates fighting each other for positions on the poll instead of fighting the Labor • Party. This, unfortunately, is only too true, and the same applies to the Progress ive Party. These facts, when fully ...

(Published l)y Arrangement.) COLOSSAL SCANDAL. Police and Prohibition. "The worst Prohibition scandal since America's dry era,began," cab les the special correspondent of the London "Daily Despatch's' to his pap er, "is developing in Ohio, where 70 constables and enforcement agents are now in gaol, and indictments have been drawn up against 200 more, charging them with accepting bribes to permit the sale of liquor or other wise corruptly using their positions. "It is stated that from £200,000 to £600,000 a year has been paid out hi 'graft' by Ohio bootleggers. Cincln atti's famous 'flying squadron' consist ing of selected officials, chosen es pecially as prohibition agents for their supposed honesty, are all, with one exception, under bond to answer charges of corruption. "It is stated that the corruption is of two kinds. In some cases bootleg gers paid for the privilege of doing business; in other caseB they were arrested and fined extravagant sums, which were divided between the '...
A LODGE PATIENT. DOCTOR SUES AND DEFENDANT HAS TO PAY. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 18 July 1925
A LODGE PATIENT. DOCTOR SUES AND DEFENDANT HAS TO PAY. An 'interesting case was dealt with by Mr. W. S. Bromhead, P.M., at the Murwillumbah Court oL* Petty Sess ions, when Dr. James Aiken sued Wm. Morrison, of Tumbulgum, for the recovery of £12/12/- in respect of professional attendance to defendant's son. Defendant claimed he was a mem ber of the Tumbulgum branch of the M.D., I.O.O.F., and that claimant was not entitled to make the charges. Dr Aiken said that the boy's nose was broken, and that portion of the bone had to be removed, necessitating an anaesthetic. ' He considered that the administration of au anaesthetic could be classed as an operation, which was not included in the treat ment lodge members were entitled to receive free of charge. He thought it unnecessary to notify the defend ant that the case was outside the lodge arrangements. Norman Morrison, the boy who was injured, said that Dr. Aiken never made any mention of bones having been broken, or of an anaesthetic. Dr...

FIELD WHEAT COMPETITIONS. "BIGGER YIELDS. AND BETTER QUALITY." Mr. G. W. Walker, of Liudley Walk • Co-op. Wheat Co., Ltd., writes:— It was my pleasure a few weeks ago to preside over a conferences o£ jud ges of the field wheat competitions, and I was struck with the keen en thusiasm that prevailed during the discussion on all matters which count iu the successful cultivation of whoat. 1 I congratulate the Agricultural De partment on its fine team of experts, and the wheat industry must benefit I by their close association with the | wheat growers. All but one were 1 departmental men, the exception l>c • ing Mr. Robert McCrone, a retired wheat grower. He being associated with the Temora Agricultural Soci ety's crop competition, and a judge, entered into the various discussions relative to the points suggested, and as a successful and practical grower himself, it was pleasing to note rhe esteem in which he held all depart mental experts. i The object of the conference was ( to evol...
WOOL REPORT Pitt, Son & Badgery, Ltd., report under date 17th July:— [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 25 July 1925
WOOL REPOKT Pitt, Son & Badgery, Ltd., under date 17tli July:— Tlis resets of both-Melbourne and Brisbane auctions, which have been current this week, must be considered as very favourable. In both centres owners were disposed to give of their* best. The basis of values current in Brisbane was rather better than that which ruled in Sydney when sales were suspended, especially for the better lines of fleece wools, but low er qualities did not show any im provement. On Monday next, 20th inst., the Sydney series will open, and it is anticipated that at the establish ed basis of values there will be a good inquiry and that satisfactory clearances will be possible. London sales are progressing satisfactorily and though withdrawals are heavier than at the opening, this is probably accounted for by the fact that a lot of the' wool belongs to speculators who are not yet disposed to cut their loss. We will submit a catalogue of about 2000 bales on the opening day, Monday, 20th inst.,...

SNOW. CROOKWELL GETS ITS ISSUE. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 25 July 1925
SNOW. CROOKWELL GETS ITS ISSUE. Crookwel! had its first taste of of snow for 1925—of any consequence —on Monday night. Heralded by a gust of wind the big white flakes commenced to fall thick ly at 7.30 p.m., and continued with intervals throughout the night. The moist nature of the' ground however, prevented it from settling to any extent. Nevertheless the hills presented a very pretty—if chilling— spectacle on Tuesday morning. Heavy rain again on Tuesday night removed all traces of the fall.
RED CROSS. MRS. MACKINNON FOR GENEVA. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 25 July 1925
BED CROSS. MRS. MACKINNON FOR GENEVA. The news that Mrs. MacKinnon, whose name has been a power in the Red Gross Society ever cince its in ception in Sydney, had been appoint ed delegate to the League o£ Nations Conference at Geneva, has caused widespread satisfaction to Red Cross workers all over New South Wales— or perhaps it would not he too much to say all over Australia—for her wonderful work for the Red Cross is known far and wide, and her gifts are recognised and admired in many di rections, not only with the Society, but also outside it. It is felt by many Red Cross work ers that the honour accorded Mrs. MacKinnon—the greatest, perhaps, that her country could pay her—is a reflective honour upon the Red Cross Society itself, and the numbers of con gratulatory messages that have pour ed in since the news was known bear witness to this. Mrs. MacKinnon's work for over ten years, as Hon. Advisory. Secre tary, Hon. Director of V.A.D's., Hon. Director of Branches, Hon. Director of ...

FAKM & STATION* MISCELLANEOUS. Useful on the Farm. ! Some Formulae fop Whitewash." Lime or whiting (which is carbon ate of lime) is the basis of the more common mixtures of ■whitewashing; walls and ceilings of farm buildings, dairies, etc. The following are among.' the formulae which have been found in practice to be most satisfactory for the purpose. One of the best whitewashes, and one which can be relied on to make ' a brilliant and enduring coating, both for indoor and outdoor work is the for mula used by the United States Gov ernment in all their important work, such as lighthouses and public build ings—it is the one used for the r.ainting of the White House in Wash ington. It is as follows:—Unslaked lime 2 pecks common salt 1 peck, rice flour 3 lbs., Spanish whiting j lb., glue (clean and white) 1 lb., water in sufficient quantity.
