THE DAIRYING INDUSTRY VOUCHES FOR THE "ALFA-LAVAL SEPARATORS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 4 May 1915
THE DAIRYING INDUSTRY VOUCHES FOR THt "ALFA-LAVAL SEPARATORS. The dictionary definition of the word "vouch" is "to bear witness and testify to the truth of a state ment or fact." This being so, it would be very difficult to imagine a better definition of the word "Vouch" than to say that the great dairying industry everywhere vouches most unanimously and en thusiastically for the "Alfa-Laval" Cream Separator. That such is true is evident to the mosf casual ob server. People who have no connec tion with the dairying industry are necessarily familia'r with the "Alta Laval" Separators as they are to 'be met with everywvhere, especially on wharves and railway stations travel ling to their destinations. 1 If a dairyman is asked what make of separator he is using the chances are twenty to one that he will say "Alfa-Laval"; an odd person here ana there who says he is using some other make, will probably say so in an apologetic manner, conveying the impression that he knows he has made a mi...

The clanging of the fire alarm bell at about 8 o'clock on Saturday night was a public notification of an out break of fitr which had just before been discovered at the extensive si ness premises of Mes.rs. Ha eli & Russell, Ltd., in Monaro Street and instantly there was a general rush of willing hands- and sightseers to the locality. The fire had evidently started in an ancient brick building closely hugging the rear of the fine newshopsonly comparatively recently erected by the enterprising firm men tioned. It originally consisted of two brick cottages under one roof, and for many years in bygone days these were tenanted by private residents. The block on which these tenements stood was in the course of time pur chased by the late Mr. John Bull,J P., one of Qneanbeyan's early Mayors; who erected the two-storeyed building now forming part of Hayes and Rus sell's, and carried on a general store therein, which bu...
