SOCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 3 April 1903

SOCIAL. A very successful Social took place on Wednesday, 25th last, and the little Hall was crowded far beyond its capacity. It was quite surprising and rerreshing to see such a well dressed attendance, and such a host of smiling face 3, especially when one remembers the state of the district, tlirough the ravages of the terrible drought. The social was in aid of the Sisters of St. Joseph Peak Hill. It was a success in every way, the net proceeds amoun ted to £10, Dancing was indulged in till about 4 o'clock in the morning. I Bhould not like to hazard an opinion; re Belle, but certainly the Pansy Blossom from Molong took a trick, and the little maid from out 'Beyant,' was just a veritable little stick of sugar candy. And as the Cornishnian said, when remonstrated with by a friend for drinking laeer, and who said that beer was bad, 'cousin Jack said, ' no maister there baint no bad beer, only some be better than others.' So. I would say of the fair ones at the social, they were all ...

COST OF GROWING WHEAT. (To the Editor Peak Hill Express.) [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 3 April 1903

COST OF GROWING WHEAT. (To the Editor Peak MM Express. J Sir, — Mr. H. J. Fletchor, the ex-president of the Peak Hill Fanners' and Settlers' Asso ciation, has entered the controversial arena, on the above question, bristleing with satirical criticism, like a porcupine with quiHs. His letter' goes to prove that experts at calculation, can draw incorrect conclusions from vrong premises, just as easily as they can draw correct conclusions {rom correct premises. His first premise is that I swear 11b per acre is the total cost of wheat production, his second premise is that I allow nothing for deprecia tion of plant, machinery, horses, etc., and that I have forgotten to pay myself . His con clusion is, there must be a marginal profit of 19s per acre. If his premises were correct his conclusions would be correct also. My state ment -will show they are not. It shows that lls per acre provides for the cost of patting in, taking off, and carting to market only, and that I have charged that i...

Editorial Notes. OLD AGE PENSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Peak Hill Express — 3 April 1903

' Editorial Notes. OLD AGE PENSIONS. The , administration of the Old Age Pension Act — an Act which every reasonable mind must look upon with approbation is, at the present time receiving serious consideration at tlio hands of our Legislators. No doubt certain discrepancies, have cropped up, whereby those .who nre not actually entitled to aid, are receiving pensions. Whether this is- the fault of the Act itself or of its administration is a mat ter of doubt. Certain it is that the Cabinet is now considering the best means of improving .',the Statute, so that those, and those only, who have a moral as well as a legal right shall be qualified to the . c6nc'efssiori. Apart from any disparity,*Tiowever', the Act embodies a principlejsrlilcli is worthy of the commendation -of all.. It is a problem which aims at the. rendering happy of the aged in. their declining years, by making provision for their enforced feebleness, and disability to compete successfully in the battle of life with th...
