The Espected Return to GcM The recent rise- of sterling is now gojiernlly looked upon as indicatinir that we are on the way towards an ?efii'ly resumption . of specie payments. It is admitted by- most.' observers that there are yet many incalculable fac tors which may delay the prc.ccss.

Suspicious Fire IN 'DAILY EXPRESS' OFFICE. A timely discovery prevented what Otherwise would undoubtedly have l.een a serious fire in the 'Daily Ex press' -office 011 Saturday evening. At about (5 p.m. Mr. G. C. Pink stone, one of the principals of the. Company, casually dropped iuto the j office to pick up evening papers, when j he noticed a smell of fire, and the : ca.ise of it was soon found in a blaze going 011 in a machinery corner at the I back end of the factory. As the fire had evidently only started a minute or two before, Mr. Piukstone soon had it extinguished. The circumstances surrounding the - outbreak poi'it to it being something more than merely accidental. . Mr. Pinkstone was himself the last person in the office at 3:30 that after noon, and on leaving had been careful to lock up. Later an employee came to the oflice to do some writing, and -finding the doors locked went away again. When Mr. Pinkstone returned at (! p.m. the doors were secure. The fire, however, had ...
S.S. COMMUNISM THE SHIP THAT NEVER WAS. [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 12 March 1925
S.S. COMMUNISM [ tHE SBI£- ®HAS NiiVBB WAS. If is highly probable that 90 men out of 100, no matter what their poli tical opinions might be, would prefer to go to sea in a ship of a type known to be reasonably seaworthy than in one of a strange design that had never proved its capacity to float even in calm water, much less to weather the storms of adverse seas. And it is msj-e than likely that those ninety and nine would not be induced to alter their preference by the assurance of certain foreign gen tlemen hwo had never navigated a ship at all that the strange vessel was a much better sort of vessel than the ones they wore used to. Having decided, then, to embark upon the ship of familiar design, the ninety and nine, it is almost certain, would have an added sense of secur ity if they knew that the ship was commanded by a navigator of experi ence; but they would probably despair of their safety if on the high seas the crew mutinied and decided that they, and not the captain, shoul...

The Pig's Tail [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 12 March 1925
The Pig's Tail The curl in the pig's tail is said to be a sure indicator of the state of his health. Some breeders assert that a straight-tailed pig is discontented and . a feed wast«v. In health, the tail is curled and carried in a characteristic way, whereas in a siclcly animal the '.ail is. often carried loosely and hangs in a limp fashion. One will often no tice, however, that in aged pigs the tail is not always curled. Sometimes it hangs free and is switched about in the same way as the tail of a horse or cow. Even in these cases, the way in' which the tail is moved indicates whe ther the animal is in good heart or is sickly and disinclined to move about.

MURDER AT REDFERN. SYDNEY, To-day. Mrs. Mary Smith was brutally mur dered at her house, Douglas Street, Redfern, about 2 a.m. this morning, and her daughter, Alice Quirk serious ly wounded. It was first thought they had been shot, but investigations showed that both had been battered on the head with a tomahawk whilst asleep. Two shots were fired by a neighbour, who thought that a son of Mrs. Smith, who clambered on to the reol in fear; was a burglar. The first intimation o.f the trouble was at 2.10, when the neighbour heard screams, followed by thuds, like blows being made with a strap.' When the police ai rived , they found Smith and Quirk in bed with the bedclothes pulled over them stained with blood. . A short search revealed a tomahawk, also cov ered with blood with the handle brok en, showing the force with which it had been used. Mrs. Smith died in hi.spital, while her daughter by the fist marriage is in a critical state. Neighbours saw two men leave the house shortly after t...
