GOLSPIE. (From Our Correspondent). [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 1 August 1925

GOLSPIE. (From Our Correspondent). The past week has been a quiet one here, and there is little news to report. We experienced a very cold snap last week, when several inches   of snow fell and the temperature for several days was very low and the frosts heavy. The past few days have been mild. Mr. Thomas McAlister, who recent- ly went to Sydney for medical ad- vice and assistance, is returning to his home this week. It is a matter for deep regret to his family and friends that Mr. McAlister's journey to the city was not attended with more satisfactory results. It is reported that Mr. Michael Stil- well, an old and well-known resident of the Abercrombie, died at his home at the week-end. The funeral took place on Monday.   Evidently our residents are not so keen on seeing the Fleet as those of other localities. To my knowledge the only one to undertake the trip to the city was Mr. James Marmont, who went in company with some Laggan friends.   A...

BENZINE AND KEROSENE. APPLICATION FOR INCREASED DUTY. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 8 August 1925

BENZINE AND KEROSENE. APPLICATION FOR INCREASED DUTY. An application has been made to the Tariff Board for an increase of 1/4 per case on kerosene, motor spirit and benzine in cases, while similar products imported in bulk would not bear this duty. This is a serious attempt to further penalise the primary producer in fav orfto£ the city motorist and user of keroseue, as 90 per cent, of the kero sene, motor spirit, and benzine in caBes is sold in the country, and if this duty is imposed it will result in an increase of 1/4 per "case in the country districts, while a reduction in the price of these commodities is con templated in the cities by those im porting these products in bulk.

WIT AND HUMOR. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 8 August 1925

WIT AND HUMOR. "I had rather have a fool to make me merry than experience to make me sad." —Shakespeare The Curraweela resident met a friend from Golspie. The talk turn ed to wireless, and the former said: "My wireless set is giving great sat isfaction. ' "Why do you not instal one?" "Say, friend," said the- Gols piefte, "I have a complete, outfit in my home. My wife is the broadcaster and I am the receiver." • ■» » Two train robbers held up the-Tar alga train on the prairie land adjac ent to "Wowagin.

WILLYS-KNIGHT MODEL 65. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 8 August 1925

WILLYS.KNIGHT MODEL The new Willys-Knight Model 65 is claimed by the New South Wales distributors, Messrs. Overland Sydney Limited, to be a veritable master piece o£ silent power. The main ffeu-. ture of the Willys-Knight car is its silent Knight Sleeve Valve engine, which was* tested by the Sydney Un iversity last year and was found to actually gain more horse power with use. The new model 65 differs from the model 64 in various ways. The stream line appearance of the body is ac centuated by the introduction of a higher and narrower radiator. The dashboard of this new Willys-Knight is more modern and more artistically arranged for the present-day fastidi ous motorist. The mudguards also, now conform with the more recent de signs. Another- alteration is the equipment, which includes five full balloon tyres as standard. SPECIFICATIONS OF THE NEW WILLYS-KNIGHT.

MOTORING NOTES BRAKE INSPECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 8 August 1925

MOTORING NOTES BRAKE IN8PECTION. The department of public safety in New York and several other American cities have flying squadrons, whose" chief duty is to stop unsuspecting mo torists, appropriate the wheel, and pro ceed forthwith to test the brakes. In one month recently 1000 brakes were so treated, and something more than 700 owners were requested to fix the brakes or see the judge, or both. Signs of the times! The handwrit ing is on the wall. Motor traffic in N.S.W. is assuming such proportions and growing so rapidly that although | inspection of brakes on vehicles is imperative, it behoves you and me, both for our own safety and also for the safety of our brother motorist, to see to your, brakes. NEED OF BRAKE INSPECTION. There is no doubt but that of the hundreds of motor fatalities that take Place every year, many may be traced to . defective brakes. _ It is astounding to think that to-day there are probab ly thousands of cars in this country that h avecontrol apparatus tha...

STRAY JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 8 August 1925

STKAY JOTTINGS. (By Y:J.C.) A clergyman, who was travelling, stopped for lunch- at an hotel much frequented by wags and jokers. At table the guests used all their raillery of wit upon him without eliciting a remark. He ate his lunch quietly, ap parently without observing the gibes and sneers of his neighbours. One of them at last, in despair of his for bearance, said to him: "Have you not heard all that has been said of you " "Oh, yes, but I am used to it. Such remarks have no effect on me. I am a chaplain of a -lunatic asylum." « « » A surveyor camped for four months under a large gum tree at Burrago • rang.

FARMERS' HANDICAP. (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 8 August 1925

FARMERS' HANDI CAP. (To the Editor) Sir,—Unfortunately for Farmers at tending the Bureau Conference held at Richmond on 20th July, 1925, the Government ignored, as on previous occasions, the just demands of Pro ducers. The motion from Cotta Wal la Branch asking "that all Farm Trac tors be exempt from Taxation," was deliberately side-stepped, and al though several delegates, urged that the motion be dealt with, only a aoft worded ' resolution, was passed, after the majority of producers left for home. The trouble is that Primary Produc ers are only considered from the viewpoint of "how much Tax can the authorities extract, fairly or unfairly." Consequently Farm Tractors are so classified' as-to produce up to £100 per annum tax, while sporting vehic les can get clear of tax for, £10. * Our parliamentary representatives continue to acclaim the real worth the man on the land is, but never a; word for him when compiling the taxation schedule. How can any sane person approve •of a tax on ...

Commanding Success in the Country. THE FOUNDATION. 1. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 8 August 1925

1 Commanding Success in tha Country. THE FOUNDATION. •; No. 1. VS: (By "Verb Sap.") . It is attributed to Charles Dickens that he'placed the reason for his suc cess upon the fact that he put as much .thoroughness ■ and enthusiasm into his smallest tasks as the larger ones, and all keen students who have read widely in biographical sketches can, bring to mind many similar admiss ions with concrete proof. Success is always built upon a sound foundation. "Without a founda tion there can only be expected' jer ry-built structures, and it is due time we Australians—and more particular ly country dwellers—got busy exam ining our foundations. It is admitted that all wealth comes from the soil. This platitude is com mon property. Another of the same breed is that catch-cry now worn to nothjingnjess—"Produce imore." ' But has auy definite order been planned, whereby more wealth shall be produc ed for the good of all? ^Viewing the progress Australia has already made, not because of, but in spi...
