HALF-HOLIDAY MOVEMENT. (TO THE EDITOR "WESTERN CHAMPION.") [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 20 May 1898

HMF-KUMLiDM. SSOTEilEraT. (to THE EDITOR "WESTERN CHAMPION.") Sir,—A8 you are doubtleBS aware a movement is on foot to obtain for the employees of the various business houses in town the now very general boon throughout the colony, viz., a weekly half-holiday. The object in view is one in which the public have largely the control, as is practically shown by the successful lBSue of the 6 o'clock closing movement. I fee) sure that in asking this concession of a half-hoiiday, every right-thinking employee has their employer's best interest at heart, and would regret exceedingly if such a proceeding might mean any financial loss to them. Some employers have ex pressed an opinion that the employees are grasping and wanting too much, but when one considers that the aver age shop assistant works (even now) 55 hours per week, the concession of 5 hours (a half-holiday) would then leave their working hours a trifle more than the recognised 48 hours standard of the laboring man or Gov ernment ...

Trundle. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 20 May 1898

(FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT;) The influenza fieud hao been viery busy here for sotne time, and most;of the residents have been laid up with this very disagreeable complaint, but the majority are on the mend again, A welcome break in the weather came last week, when 90 points of rain were registered. This fall baa bad the effect of starting ploughing operations again, and enabling many farmers to sow the grain. A v«i*y large area will be under wheat this year, and if a good Beason ensues vast quantities of the golden grain will be ready for export. The news that the Government have at laBt authorised a trial survey of the proposed railway to Bullock Creek will be welcomed by residents in that part. There is no doubt but that the line, if constructed, will pay ! handsomely from its completion. | The late rain has not made much improvement in the grass bb yefe? and it is feared a hard winter must now be faced, bb the weather is quite cold and frosty ; and even if more rain does fall Bo...

IRSPORTMT 8ESBIMTOKS, (to THE EDITOR " WESTERN CHAMPION.") Sir,—At a meeting of the Directors of the Pastures and Stock Protection Board, held here on the 4th instant, the following resolution was carried :— "That in consideration of the large area of abandoned Grown Lands, which are the breeding places of wallaby and other noxious animals, to the destruction of which the Crown do not contribute anything, the pre-* sent method ot' dealing with the des truction of the vermin, as provided by the Pastures and Stock Protection Act, being unworkable, that there fore only nominal bonuses be paid until such time as the present Act be brought up to date." As there is a widespread feeling that the efficient carrying out of the abovenamed Act, is greatly hampered by the enormous area of Grown Lands (nearly a million acres in this district alone), upon which no assessment is paid, and which only serves as a harbour for vermin, I would ask you to kindly find Bpace in your journal for the be for...

FOR PROOF READ THIS : Mr. D. C. Mclntyre, Mail Con tractor, Kempsey., N.S,Wt, writeB on June 8th, 1896 It gives me great pleasure to state that after suffering from indigestion for nine years I have been cured by Clements Tonic. I only took sis bottles, when 1 found I could eat and digest my food ; before taking ClementB Tonic everything I ate made me feel miserable. I did not know what to do with myself.

Woman's World. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 20 May 1898

Woman' [By " Melita."] A woman writer Was been giving some sound advice to her oes. It is so good and honest that 1 am induced to repeat it here. She o&ys the woman who attracts is the one who has the courage to be herself. Originals are always more desired ^ tban copies. Let every woman develop her own individuality and dare to be herself. Let her think for herself, act for herself, and express her own honest opinions. Her individuality, com bined with her charm of manner, is her most potent weapon. Let her have a good natural laugh, it's as good as a dose of medicine to moBt who hear it. Learn to keep your troubles 10 yourself. There are only few—-*very few-—'you can confide in, and don't give way to tearo to often ; they are well enough in books, but are not considered desirable in real life. And so the advice goes on, all very good and true, I venture to say that half the women wouldn't know themselves if they asserted their indi viduality and dared to be themselves, ins...

Current Jottings. [Newspaper Article] — Western Champion — 20 May 1898

Had news travels fast, and, as a rule, it loses nothing on' its jour ney. It is therefore needless for me to give any details of the awful catastrophe brought about by the terrible tempest that raged of late and did so much dire destruction both on land and see—particularly on sea. Two things are worth emphasising, however9 and these are the insufficiency of life-saving apparatus al ng our coast, and the too daring-manner in which ves-( sels, many of which are not too well adapted for the sea trips, ; start from safe ports in the teeth ' of dangerous storms, laden to the j deck with cargo and often with a fairly-filled passenger list as well. For two boats like the Sydney and Maitland, both built for river ser vi©e, to go to sea in the face of what is universally said to be one of the worst gales ever experienced here was foolhardy in the extreme, and if the Marine Board is not past all hope as a guardian of the sea-going public, it will speak on this matter with no uncertain sound....
