School Continental [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 16 March 1925
School Continental The success of the annual school function this year was perhaps even greater than in other years. It even tuated on Friday afternoon and ev ening, and there was splendid patron age. The stalls were all well-filled, and attractively laid out. The large number of lady and gentlemen stall managers a.nd assistants worked like Trojans, and have reason to be proud of the fact that the sum of about £115 resulted. On the grounds were the following stalls: Produce, fancy goods, sweets, amusements, refreshments, fortune tolling, post office, flower -stall, chil dren's stall, fish pond, hoop-la. Dancing was held in the school hall, and was the big attraction, as usual. The Town Band rendered some selec tions at the commencement, which were most enjoyable. The noise of tun and frolic amongst, the children was rather detrimental to the concert programme, and only three items were put on — pianoforte duet by Mesdames Fleming and toward, songs by Miss Fietcher, and Mr. F. AAr. T...

The Redfern Tragedy MURDERED WOMAN SAID TO BE TUMUT NATIVE. Sirs. F'orcncc May Quirk. In connection with the brutal mur der reported in our telegrams of last issue, many sordid details have been revealed -by, the police inquiries. The presence of much contradictory evi dence, however, tends to give the' Out- rage Jin atmosphere of mystery, and it is also not without spectacular cir cumstances. The police, it is under- . stood, hold very definite suspicions. Yesterday a man was detained, and inquiries for another man were made outside the city. The dead woman is variously des cribed as Mrs. Mary Smith and Mrs. Florence May Quirk. The former name Is considered the correct one. Mrs. Smith's first husband is reported to have died some time ago. Four of her sons are known by the name of oiiijiu. two oi rnese sons, one 14 years of age, the other 5, Were in the house when the crime was committed. The other two sons, it is stated, were taken by Smith to AVoy AAroy some weeks ago, and lived ...

Arch Penfold forwarded a trunk from a small station on the Tumbar- ' I umba line to 'Wagga, his idea being l to Lave the trunk at Wagga when he J arrived there on his way to Sydney.

At Sydney next day Mr. Pen fold found that the trunk had not arrived. A wire to Wagga follower'-, and a .reply came that the trunk in question had been forwarded on Feb ruary 25, and was then in the lost | property oflk-o. The officials at Wagga j had thus apparently achieved the ex | traordinary feat of sending along the ' trunk two days before it had even i been packed. The lost property oilice was then visited, but there was no trace of the trunk there. Daily visits followed for ten days, when as the re sult of repeated inquiries ...

The Plain Girl [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 19 March 1925
The Plain Girl Although I often come across ar ticles containing information for pretty girls who wish to make them selves more attractive, I ra.rely sje ad vice of any sort for plain young wo men. Perhaps they are not so badly in need of it, writes Constance Tal neulge. After all, beauty is only skin deep. I once heard a famous actor, say he w.mld rather marry a jolly, goodna tured girl with freckled face and pug nose than a raving beauty with an ingrowing disposition. it is not a fact that the women in history who captivated great men and made names for themselves were not pretty Madame le Steel, Du Barry, Queen Elizabeth and Cleopatra, according to portraits and the testimony of contem poraries, were far from beautiful. Yet tiicy charmed really great men, aud 1 avt a permanent place in the history of the world. Napoleon feared Madame de Steel as he feared no other woman in Eu rope, and banished her from France simply because of her wonderful pow ers of conversation and influence ...

Straying Stock [Newspaper Article] — Adelong Argus, Tumut and Gundagai Advertiser — 19 March 1925
Straying Stock The records of the Tumut ? Munici pal' Council show that now and again cows found .straying upon certain streets are impounded. Mostly it will ue found that they are impounded from one jiarticular quarter, near the northern end of the town. Over New t.nvn way the cattle seem to have a free license to roam the streets. One night last week a townsman went over that way on business, and, when com ing home had the. misfortune to fall over a bovine, iieiore tne collision oc curred there was considerable dodging backwards .and forwards to find a way through a herd of cows which had as sembled near a culvert. There are no electric lights over Newton, and the ordinary milking cow is so quiet that it will not stir out of the pedestrian's way. In another direction we believe, that a motor car collided with a stray ing cow, narrowly escaping an acci- i dent. It is a question as to who would he responsible in the case 'of an acci dent caused by stock straying on the Council's str...
