MEAT INDUSTRY AND EXPORT TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 14 May 1914
MEAT INDUSTRY AND EXPORT TRADE. TIIE Freezing Works now in course of erection at Shepparton-the im portance of which to town and surrounding country has been descanted on frequently in these columns-naturally bring us to a consideration of the growth of the meat industry and export trade of Australia. These aspects of ihe matter are best illustrated by the ever-increasing company of great ocean liners devoted almost es pecially to this branch of trans port trade. Some of the new liners have a gool storage capacity of from three hundred to four hun dred of thousands of cubic feet, and these vast holds are through the greater part of the year filled with Australian beef and mutton. The greater portion of the beef is shipped from Queensland, and the beef season in shipping lasts from May up till August, when the lamb season begins, Victorie and New Wales supplying by far the greater proportion of this class of cargo, and also of mutton, which has no distinct season. The story of the gr...

HOTEL FOR "DOWN-AND-OUTS."

Mr. Dawes erecte I the house at a cost of- £20,000, in memory of his son Rufus, who was drowned. - The- hotel, the "Chronicle" says, provides a bath and a night's lodging for 21/d., while private rooms can be secured for ;d. The rules of the house are framed so as. not to hun't the pride of any of the guests. Soup can be obtained for a penny, coffee at the same price, and other food in pro portion. . The place is a godsend to Chicago's poor workers, many of whom are out of employment at pre sent. Every night the place is storm ed by. those who wish to get in out of the cold, a line of nearly 500 men awaiting entrance. The house ac commodates only 300, and the strug gles for priority of place in the line are pitiful to behold.
