A NEAT RETORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 18 July 1916

A NEAT RETORT. An Irishman boarded a train in which every seat except one w;as occupied by two people. This seat had as occupants a young dude and a large shaggy dog. The Irishman stood by the seat, expec ting that room would be made for him. The young dude did not take the hint, but regarded the other, who was poorly dressed, with ill-disguised scorn. At last the Irishman remarked,' 'That's a foinelooking dog ye have wid ye. Pwhat breed is it ?' 'It's a cross beWeen a skunk and an Irishman,' -avas the sneer ing answer.

ANOTHER WADE SPOOK. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 18 July 1916

ANOTHER WADE. SPOOK. According to Mr. Gregory Wade the depreciation, in the purchas es power of- the sovereign in ^?S.W. is due to 'foolish tinker tog with the law of ?? supply and demand.' Thijs is a new Liberal BPook, specially, designed to take the place of the late lamented Socialistic Tiger and Capital Lea ving the Country and the Great Divide and the Sectarian Gags, which at one time and another fell down dead and have posi tively refused to be resurrec ted. Mr. 'Wade, however, is again extremely careful not to supply particulars of his discovery. This is because there is no proof available. The fact is that the increased cost of living isn't 'pe- culiar to N.S.W. or any other State of the Commonwealth where Labor is in power and where Necessary -Commodities Commis sions and Fair Rents Acts and other alleged interferences with the aforesaid law of supply and demand are operative. It is a. world-wide complaint, upon the immediate cause of which even ths most reputable political...

THE WOOL MARKET. PRICES IN AMERICA. Winchcombe, Carson, Ltd., re port that inquiries for wool on the Sydney market continue keen. Since July 1 the firm has sold over 500 bales by private treaty at highly satisfactory prices, scoured selling to 28£d per lb. Though shearing operations have been dlefayed in the early dis tricts by labor troubles and the rain, arrivals for the week in Sydney ^ total 1720 bales, a de crease of only 5 bales compared with the same period last year. Cables from London state t'hat pricss are hardening, merinos showing a further advance on the 5 per cent, rise reported at the opening sales. Crossbreds are also firmer. Advicei from Amcri- * ca state that the embargo on the export of wool from Australia caused a sharp rise in prices in Boston and other wool centres.

BOXING. Buck Crouse, the American cruiser weight, and Dave Smith supplied a great fight at the Sta dium on Saturday night until the termination of the ninth round, when the referee, Arthur Scott, after conferring a moment or two with Mr. Baker, and then walk ing over to Smith's corner, and exchanging a few words with him, decided to stop the contest, and declare Crouse the winner. This action was not t£ken be cause Smith's strength and fight ing power had become - exhaus ted. ? On the contrary, there was a good deal of it conserved, jud ging by the manner in which he fought all through, and finished up the concluding three minutes. But he was unfortunate enough in the early part of the preceding stage of the battle to suffer a heavy bump «on the left eye, through violent contact with the American's Head. The blood, flow ing freply from the wound, al most blinded Smith at times. It was, therefore, to* save a brave fellow unnecessary pain—that the ring official decided to interfere. S...
