Needles!" to say, I jumped at the proposal, so, taking my gun, a single-barrel muzzle loader, 1 prepared to accompany him. Ho had a splendid Winchester, which iiis cap tain had presented to him when he left for Knglaml. After crossing the river wo "walked for two or three miles, and onnearing a small bolt of scrub or jungle we saw what we thought was a deer enter, so Dan skitted round to the fur side, and I advanced to where \vo had seen our quarry enter. Just where we thought he had gone in there was a iargc tree standing, so 1 took up iny position close to its trunk. After waiting for a little while to en...

In and Around Sydney. Written Specially for Country Readers. MANUFACTURERS' WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 9 March 1912
Written Specially for Country Headers. (By T.C.B.) MANUFACTURERS' WEEK. A made in Australian Exhibition was inaugurated in Sydney last year by the Chamber of Manufacturers..' i Victoria had already had one. The procedure was to convert city show | windows into use, thus the whole of 1 the principaj block in Sydney was ; an exhibition of Australian-made goods. It was a novelty; no end of ! attention was attracted by it, and i its purposo was achieved. It will be repeated this year, on a larger scale, and Manufacturers' Week will . bo observed simultaneously in other States. The public had no idea of tl.e extent of manufactures in -Syd j nev until the products of them I wer j shown in the shop windows, 1 and elaborately labelled in the en deavor to convert the words 'made in Australia," from a term of re proach into one worthy of respect.

KITCHEN AND BACK YARD FACT ORIES. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 9 March 1912
KITCHEN AND BACK YARD FACT OKIES. Under the Factories Act any room where motor power is used in trade is a factory. Il: a lolly sliop pro prietor makes his own ice-cream in a room on the premises that room is a factory. It is invaded by in spectors, by poiicemen in uniform and by policemen in plain clothes. It lias to comply with all the condit ions of the Act to the letter ol' the law just as though 500 hands were employed. The proprietor of the ice cream churn has to rill in some half dozen returns concerning his busi ness, the extent of it, the fortune he is accumulating, the material used, the by-products, the use they are put to, and so on to an extra ordinary extent. The business is grotesque officialdom — legislat ion run mad—for Sydney is becom ing crowded with kitchen and bach; yard factories. Electric power is now so handy and so cheap, that it can be switched on at small cost wherever there is a wheel to go round. The result is that one-man ufactories are all over the pla...
ADVERTISING SCHEMES. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 9 March 1912
ADVERTISING SCHEMES. Is there any other city hi tlie "worlcl where the advertising scheme* put forward daily outrival those of Sydney? America gets the name of having taken the lead iu the adver tising business, to have developed it into a. iine art, and probably many ideas originate there, play their inirt, and are then transferred abroad. But whether Sydney orig inates or plagiaries, its present ad vertising methods, the extent and variety of them, attract no end o£ attention. So skilfully are the ad vertisements o£ patent pills, vaude ville artistes, operatic celebrities, colored pugilists, and all sorts and conditions of persons now placed upon the breakfast table, in juxta position with the coffee and toast of the right-thinking citizen, that wheu he reads his paper he as of ten as not peruses advertisements believing them to be news items. Of late years there has sprung up in the metropolis a more or less proli'.ic crop of advertising experts, who study advertisement writing a...

WHAT'S IN A NAME. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 9 March 1912
WHAT'S IN A NAME. "Duceyville" as a name is neither | artistic in appearance nor euplionc oua in sound; yet there appears to be nj doubt that the garden suburb tho Government intends to build is to bo so designated. Had thero not been a redistribution of portfolios in tlie Government it would have fallen to Mr. Carmichael to build the su burb. but that would not have help ed matters, since Garmicliaelville would have been little improve ment on Daceyville. The commu nity might reasonably expect to be saved from either; the craze for dovetailing ville on to people's names might very well have been left to Ada, Julia, Jane, aud other members of the ■ large family. .Blot ches all over .the face of Sydney are Jackville, Jillvile, Johnvillc, and Je mimaville. When it came to select ing .a name for the new garden city new ground might Jiavo been ploughed. Worltville, Unionville, Strikeville, ITreeville; tlieso have not arrived yet, They are coming.

The Commissioner holds that, in order tc effect the real purpose of the Leg islature in limiting the aggregate hours of -\vorlc in the week, it is necessary also (o limit those hours according to their division by days, and lie points out that this can on ly bo done by forbidding work in a factory for more than a certain num ber of hours a duV, For females and juveniles ho is recommending in the report a week of 44 hours, and advises that the actual working hours in any day for the classes dealt with should not be more than eight hours 011 five days of the week and four on the sixth day. The hours he recommends would prevent an employee being in the factory for more than nine hours at a stretch, meal times, etc., included. The rea son lor the ad...

Donaghey, occupied the chair, and there was a good attendance of lad- ies and gentlemen.
