Wool. THE IMPROVED MARKET. THE STRENGTH OF DEMAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 20 April 1923

For a time, manufacturera j were dubious as to the economic results of | the French Occupation of the Ruhr.

A few years ago, the per- , son brave enough to prophecy a continuance . ! of normal wool business with the German 1 Mark on ruinous levels, all other Contin- ental exchanges in their present condition, and French troops in Arm hold at the heart of Germany's industrial life, would have been considered a heedless optimist. But experiences show the corre...

Rifle Shooting. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 20 April 1923

Rifle Shooting. -: o : Ninety-two, put up by Fred Smith, was easily top score at the last week-end prac- tice of the members of the Longreach Rifle Club. The conditions trroughout were anything but brilliant, as there was a very heavy and choppy wind blowing. Owing to a late start the light at the long rango was very bad as several of the shooters did not get their shots away until after sundown, and consequently the averages were considerably reduced. What is wrong with starting earlier in the day Mr. Captain ? At the 300 yards range Fred Smith topped with 33, at the 600 yards range P. Rawlins with 33, and the 600 yards H. D. Avery with 30.
