WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 27 April 1923

WOOL. Winchcombe, Carson, Ltd., report: "Those who anticipated that shortage of supplias of fine woola would cause a strengthening in demand for all grades at the close of the season, have had their expectations realised. Com- petition at the past week's final Sydney auc- tions was as keen and phenomenal generally as at any point of the ten months' selling period just closed. No phenomenal figures have been obtained for fleece lines ; but that fact was due to the absence of any specially choice lots from the catalogue. Merinos were saleable at the following range of prices : Super fleece 28d to 34d.. good to super -'Ltd to 28d , average 18d. to 24d., inferior 14d. to 17d. The figures show that the buoyant conditions experienced earlier in the year were fu 'y regained. AH crossbreds have alto sold at rates right up to the top level of the year.

ANZAC. "THEIR NAME LIVETH FOR EVERMORE." COMMEMORATION SERVICES. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 27 April 1923

ANZAC. "THEIR NAME LIVETH FOR EVERMORE." COMMEMORATION SERVICES. Whilst Anzac Day was not observed in Longreach as a close holiday, still there .seemed to be a decided difference in the day to that of the ordinary week-day. Per- haps the fact that the hotels were closed, the Post Office closed, flags flying, and generally a reduction in the ordinary trade gave the day some of the characteristics of a Sunday-a quiet day. In the morning services were held in the Churches, but it cannot be said that these were very largely attended. At this meeting Mr. T. F. Bar meeting held in the Shire Hall was largely .attended. At this meeting Mr. T. F. Bark ker presided, and with him on the platform were Rev. J. L. McLaughlin, Dr. Michod (president Repatriation Committee) and Messrs Carl Cory (vice-president of the Returned Soldiers' Association^ R. S. S. I. L. A.), F. McKeon (sec- retary R.S.S.I.L.A. and Repatriation Com- mittee), and W. L. Boyd. Prior to the com- mencement of the meeting the Lon...

Rifle Shooting. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 27 April 1923

Rifle Shooting. -: o : The conditions were not very favourable for shooting on Sunday last, when the mem- bers of the Longreach Rifle Club held their usual practice shoot. H. D. Avery, with the very creditable score of 92, topped the list. Fred Smith led the way with 65 at the first two ranges, but came to grief at the 600 yds range as,he could only manage 24. Percy Rawlins and Jim Rose are still shooting well, and appear to be working their way back to old time form. Captain G. Thurecht experimented with a new rifle, and thus reduced his average somewhat. The following are the scores : 300 500 600 T'l. H. D. Avery 29 33 30 92. F. Smith 33 32 24 89 P. Rawlins 24 32 27 83 J. Rose 26 29 27 82 E. Oliver 27 27 20 74 G. Thurecht 22 30 21 73 R.
