Blaxland Shire. A MATTER OF VALUATIONS. DISCUSSION IN THE COUNCIL. The principal topic of discussion at meet ings of the above shire during the last four months has' been the matter of obtaining a fresh valuation of the rateable property ?within the shire and also a search for hold ings which have so far escaped valuation. It was again discussed at the meeting held at Wallerawang on Friday of last week, hut ?owing to the voluminous correspondence it was impossible to include it in our report in last issue.

WHAT THE STATISTICS SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915

WHAT THE STATISTICS SHOW. 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 4 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.

FOOTBALL [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915

FOOTBALL. ALL BLACKS V. KATOOMBA. (By our Special Representative.) In the presence of a large crowd of spec tators Katommba defeated the Lithgow All Blacks by 14 points to 10 at Katoomba on Saturday last. It was a torrid contest, and the result was in doubt right up to the final whistle. D. Young won the toss and elected to play with the sun behind him. Katoomba kicked off and Coneybeare returned the sphere to half-way. It was evident the rear division of the All Blacks were in for a rough hand ling' from their much heavier and speedier opponents. From a scrum at half-way Mul lins sent to Newman, to Ranji Burns, the latter palming the opposition aside and tearing up the field until Thorn dragged him down. From the scrum Nicholls emerged with the ball and punted down to the other quarter, where Katoomba were penalised for not allowing the ball to be played. From near the touch line and 25 yards out from the goal line, Nicholls failed to score with the kick. Immediately following the ...

CRICKET. HARTLEY DISTRICT CRICKET ASSOCIATION. The annual meeting of the above associa tion was held on Monday night at Holt's hotel, when there only a fair attendance. Mr. G. Kirkwodd occupied the chair. The secretary stated that the war had had a baneful effect on cricket, as on many other things. The working of the Small Arms Factory till late on Saturdays had af fected the game considerably in Lithgow, for part of the season. There were five teams in the competition, which was won by the Railway team. There were two dis trict matches played against Bathurst last season, one being won and the other lost. He regretted the lack of public support, but thought that by introducing junior cricket this could be overcome. The reading of the balance-sheet by the treasurer showed the association to be in a flourishing con dition; £10/1/4 being the amount in hand. The balance-sheet was received as satis factory on the motion of Messrs Armour and McLachlan. The following officers were electe...

AN APPEAL TO OUB HOUSici. WIVES. It i« hoped that every houjmwife in this town and district, and similarly in all other towns and districts, will make a point to-day of buying a bottle of 'Pick-me-up' Sauce, and so give ample proof for publication that Australian women folk are now playing their part in supporting our own resources. As the ' foregoing implies, 'Pick-me-up' Sauce ia made in Australia. It is, therefore, free of duty and so costs less than some sauces. The manufacturers gained gold medal at B.A. Show, Sydney, and 30 first, special, and other prizes. Every store keeper will be asked far results' of to day's appeal.

RAILWAY FOOTBALL CLUB! WHERE ARE YOU? (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 28 August 1915

RAILWAY FOOTBALL CLUB! WHERE; ARE YOU? (To the Editor.) Sir, — Allow me a small space in your valu able paper to protest against the action of: the Railway Football Club with regard to. the patriotic match, Gordons v. Railways,., which should have eventuated last Saturday. Surely it was the least the Railways couW have done was to acquaint the Gordons that the match was off and not allow them to journey down to the ground to find it out. It showed very poor sportsmanship on their part. The motive of the match was to raise a few pounds for a good cause — Australian Wounded Soldiers Fund. Most of us have friends amongst them, and it seems like an insult to our wounded that the Railways should back down at the eleventh hour with out any apparent reason. What made you 'squib,' Railways? Was it the paltry 5/- or were you afraid of getting a good drubbing at the hands of so formidable opponents as the Gordons? You need not have been afraid, as the Gordons decided before going down to the ...

Portland. (From our own correspondent.) The weather here has been rather mild for the last week or so. This is very bene ficial to the various builders building about this town. Mr. Wenstrom. jeweller and watchmaker of this town, has been accepted for active service. He has joined the Flying Corps, aiid expects to leave the town in about a fortnight's time. On Tuesday evening there was also a juvenile ball held for the same purpose. There were about 200 children present, most of whom were attired in fancy costumes — nurses, soldiers, sailors, gypsies, Erin, pier rotts, and numerous others. The children indulged in dancing until ten o'clock, when they were given supper, and adults danced from then until 12 o'clock, and another very enjoyable evening was spent. The two en — tertainments on the whole were a credit to the ladies who organised the ball. The annual convent ball was held here in the Crystal Hall on Monday night, and turned out to be very successful from an en joyable point...
