Official Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
Official Correspondence. Mr. Austin Chapman.—Will the Minister for Home Affairs tell us what progress is being made at the Federal Capital; and also whether the squabble between the departmen- tal officers and Mr. Griffin, which has caused so much delay has been settled ? Is there any likelihood of Parliament being removed to the Capital this side of the Day of Judg- ment? Mr. Archibald.—The work at the Capital site is being proceeded with steadily and surely, and great pro- gress has been made. I am not aware of any misunderstanding be tween the officers of the Departmen. and Mr. Griffin; indeed, I do not know what my honorable friend is driving at.
Amateur Cycle Club's Sports. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
Amateur Cycle Club's Sports. The cycle sports and fancy dress football match inaugurated by the above club, the nett proceeds of which are to be devoted to the relief of distressed families in this district, were held in the park on Saturday afternoon last and were, financially, a success. The procession of those in fancy costume and boy scouts in uniform, was led from the bridge to the tune of " The Men of Harlech " played by the Queanbeyan Town Band. Included in the fancy costumes were Mr. W. B. Freebody who was dressed as a black gin; another set comprising Messrs. T. Warren, J. Campbell, C. O'Rourke (Kaiser), W. Sacagio and A. Johnston, who were got up to represent Scotchmen who had captured the Kaiser. There were others in individual costume and taken as a whole the procession was a very pleasing spectacle.

SAVE MONEY BY MAKING GOOD COUGH MIXTURE AT HOME. " We have found Hean's Essence a most effective and economical family remedy for coughs and colds."—Mrs. E. A. Trice, Dorroughby, Richmornd River. "I find the mixture made from Hean's Essence, splendid to relieve the hacking cough after an attack of asthma. It soothes the bronchial tubes, and by loosening the phlegm affords great relief. Your Hean's Essence always does me good, and I much prefer it to other cough mixtures: It never causes me nausea- ting feelings."—A. G. Newman, Mun- diwa, N.S.W.

HEAD-ON COLLISION. TEMORA MAIL AND EXPRESS. ONE DEAD—MANY INJURED. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
HEAD-ON COLLISION. TEMORA MAIL AND EXPRESS. ONE DEAD—MANY INJURED. Early on Saturday morning the limited express from Melbourne crashed into the Temora mail train which was standing at the Binalong platform. One of the passengers, Mr. Robert Thomas of Temora, was so seriously injured that he died during the evening. Many other pas- sengers are suffering from shock and minor bruises, although the majority of them were able to continue their journey a few hours after the occurrence. The limited express came towards the siding at a fast rate, and, but for the pres- ence of mind of the driver who jambed on the air brake when he realised the danger, the collision must have been followed by appalling consequences. As it was, the sound of the impact could be heard for miles. Residents of Binalong hastened to the scene of the accident in large numbers, and assis- ted in the work of rescuing the passengers, who were imprisoned in the wreckage. Three engines, two on the limited, one on the Te...

The Late Military Send-off. OMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
The Late Military Send-off. OMISSION. We regret that in our necessarily condensed report of the send off tendered to the young volnnteirs, Privates McInnes and Tully, on their departure for the front, no mention was made of the contribution to the harmony of the gathering at the Protesdant Hall last Thursday evening by Miss Mair. The young lady's service was a spontaneous re- sponse to the Chairman's invitation, and both her singing and pianoforte execution were much appreciated. Our attention &nbsp; having been called to the omission we most cordially make the amend to which she is so worthily entitled.
THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
THE WEATHER. Since our last issue the weather conditions have been of the most favorable character. The temperature has been quite mild and therefore helpful to the growth of grass and other vegetation Light rains have fallen &nbsp; totalling up to yesterday morning 11 points; although the total rainfall since the the break up of the drought locally has exceeded three inches, and the soil is in a fair state of tilth, a further substantial fall would be very acceptable; especially if not followed by severe frosts.
Interesting to Stock Raisers. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
Interesting to Stock Raisers. The firm of John Bridge & Co., with, it would seem, a good deal of justification, assert their "system," insofaras this relates to fat stock consignments for Homebush is as nigh perfect as can be. As regards the treatment of stock, from &nbsp; the moment it is put on the train at some distant inland centre, until it reaches Syd- ney, the firm, has, of course, no control. But the moment a lot of cattle or sheep reaches its destination, the John Bridge system takes hold of it with a firm, practic- ed hand, and sets to work to deal with every beast in the way best calculated to make it sell well when it gets under the eyes of the buyers. There is a practical man controlling the Stock Department of the firm—a man from the countryside and reared amongst stock. His views, recently expressed, are worth repeating here. He says: "It is not diffi- cult to understand the mental speculations of the stockowner, who has sent a valuable lot of sheep or...
