DIAMOND COUP WORKED AT MILAN. JEWEL AND JEWELLER SOLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 10 December 1928
DIAMOND COUP WORKED AT MILAN. JEWEL AND JEWELLER SOLD. An ingenious and original method of doubling within a very short time a sum of money 'carefully' invested was successfully tested by a smart young man at Milan, in September, according to the last English mail. He had only £650, but in less than two months ho increased it to £1,200. To the police the young man is de scribed as very smart, prosperous looking, and endowed with a very convincing manner. . - 'To see him is to trust him,' said a Milanese jeweler. It. seems the young man called on the jeweller and asked to be shown some diamonds, from which he select ed one, paid unhesitatingly £600 for it, and slipped it in his waist coat pocket. He was leaving the shop when he appeared to be struck by a sudden thought. 'You haven't another diam ond exactly like the one I bought?' ne asKea. The jeweller regretted that he had not. 'I need another diamond, and would be grateful if you could pro cure it for me,' said the buyer. The jewe...

Sadly has it suffered by putting its ? trust in Canberra. Twelve months ago two families living in one house was a fairly common occurrence, and he accounted himself marvellously lucky who could find room to park his car in the main street after 10 a.m. Shops were not procurable. Both houses and shops in course of construction were rented long before they were completed. Any man going to one of the barber's shops was singularly fortunate if he received attention within half an hour. The bottle de partments of the hotels were like the toy sections of Sydney stores at Christmastide. 'To Let' the stark sign which challenges thought on every side to-day. ...

Notwithstanding the excellent' var- - ieties of wheat at present being I grown, the Department, in the inter- i ests of the farmer, is not satisfied to let the matter rest, but is out to j make the way of the wheat-grower j a good deal more easier by producing varieties that will give him a higher return per acre than is possible at j present.
