MURRUMBURRAH [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 10 December 1928
MURRUMBURRAH On Friday week last a spark from the engine of the paper train set fire to the grass in the police paddock at Murrumburrah, which spread rapidly and headed of St. Mary's R.C. Church and Convent. The alarm was given by the ringing of the bells and motor cars and lorries were requisitioned in which volunteers were rushed to the scene of the outbreak. After a great fight the flames were beaten down and the -Church property saved. The fighters then went to the northern end of the paddock where the fire was burning fiercely. Despite the efforts it crossed the road and entered a crop of oats owned by Messrs Durrant Brothers and W. McRae, and it was feared a most disastrous bush fire would result. The voIunteex*s, who 1 numbered about 200, stuck manfully to their post, and succeeded in beat ing the flames down, and eventually it was put out. Besides the grass that was burned in the police paddock, about seven acres of oats were des troyed.
SIR HENRY A. WICKHAM THE RUBBER INDUSTRY [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 10 December 1928
SIR HENRY A. WICKHAM THE RUBBER INDUSTRY In the death of Sir Henry A. Wick ham in-London, recently, there passed one of the greatest rubber pioneers in the industry — the one man who J was responsible for the cultivation i of the rubber tree in Malaya, Ceylon ! and India, and who made it possible ! for the British Empire to rise to its ! present position in the rubber grow- 1 ing industry in the East, from which ' also has been made possible the stu- J pendous growth of the automobile j industry. As the father of plantation rubber I industry, he was the recipient of j many honors, most of which, however, I did not come to him until after a romantic and varied life. Wickham was born in 1846 and spent the early part of his life as an explorer and planter in many parts of the tropics, including Central America, the bas ins of the Amazon and Orinoco riv ers in South America, in New Guinea, Malaya and Ceylon. In the 1870's Wickham sensed the possibilities in cultivating the rubber tree (...
STATE'S SHEEP CARRYING CAPACITY QUESTION "OVERSTOCKED IN 1891." [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 10 December 1928
STATE'S SHEEP CARRYING CAPACITY QUESTION ; ? j 'OVERSTOCKED IN 1S91.'7 i A member of the British Economic Mission now visiting Australia has expressed suprise that while N.S.W. in 1891 ran just over 61,000,000 j sheep, is is running nothing like that now. j In 1891 when it ran its maximum j sheep numbers N.S.W. was very seri- ' I ously overtaxed. Among pastoral j authorities there is agreement that 1 in 1891 N.S.W. could not saaiely I carry so many sheep. The price — in . drought losses — was paid in sujbse- 1 quent years. I To-day the average stockowiier feels that one of the things he must religiously guard against is overstock ing. He knows' that if he overstocks, the average wool clip will not be so satisfactory, the sheep will not do so well and if the drought strikes him he knows that his losses will be much heavier than if he had moderately stocked. , . In 1891 the land cultivated was just over one million acres. In 1924 there were approximately four million acres cultivated....

"THE MERRIE CONCERT" [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent — 10 December 1928
'THE MERRIE CONCERT' ? ? ? Aptly named, 'The Merrie Con cert,' organised by Miss. Z. Mills, to raise funds for Gundagai Boy Scouts and Cubs, drew a -crowded house to the Gundabidgee Theatre on Friday night, and provided a wealth of mirth and melody for all. The overtures were orchestral sel ections given by Miss M. McGoldrick (piano), Miss Ella Carr (drums), and Mr. E. Dart (violin), and they were deservedly applauded , on each appear ance. Thirteen sturdy Scouts appeared in several chorus numbers, the most successful being 'Mary had a William Goat,' and 'Old Folks at Home.' They sang really well, and reflected much credit on Miss Mills' patient tuition; but the manly appearance of these sturdy small boys was even more pleasing, and one could honestly envy the pardonably proud parents who were present. Miss Amy Brigden, received with applause, sang 'Little Brown Owl' with a delicate interpretation, and had to respond to an undeniable re call. Her encore number was equally excellent,...
