POTATO MAEKET. (By Our Correspondent). [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 29 August 1925
POTATO MAEKET. (By Our Correspondent). During the week ending Saturday last the market has been a firm one, especially for locals. Arrivals have been light from local centres, and if this attitude is followed for each week for the remaining portion of the sea son by growers, prices can be helE reasonably near present levels which have ranged from 13/6 to 10/6, ac cording to quality. To-day's market (Friday) was not quite up to that rul ing for previous days, being a pound easier all round, perhaps due to it being Friday, a bad day for consign ments to arrive. Prospects look rea sonably' good for next week. A light shipment is advised from Tasmania, said to be 10,000 to 12,000 bags, and it is rumoured that G,000 bags are coming from New Zealand. This con signment will need to realize £12 to £13 to clear all overhead expenses, and show a profit on purchase, so there is nothing to fear from this source of supply. The price for Tas manians stands at £15 for the choic est, but as little ...

Death of Mrs. George McDonald. &nbsp; AN OLD CROOKWELL RESIDENT PASSES. The sad news of the death of Mrs. George McDonald, of Crookwell, one of the oldest and most respected resi- dents of Crookwell, was received on Thursday last from Gunnedah, where the deceased lady and her hus- band had been spending the winter months with relatives. Some time since the late Mrs. Mc- Donald met with a very serious ac- cident at her residence, Crookwell, by falling downstairs. Although she re- covered somewhat from the affects of the fall, she really never regained lier former sturdy health. The cause of death was pneumonia. The deepest sympathy is expressed for the bereaved husband and fam- ily. Councillor Moreton McDonald, Gor- don, Colin, and Glad., of Crookwell, are sons. The funeral will take place to-day (Saturday), leaving the Presbyterian Church, Crookwell, at 2 p.m. for the Crookwell cemetery.
A ONE-GUN JANE. SHOT AT HER LOVER, BUT MISSED. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 5 September 1925
A ONE-GUN JANE. SHOT AT HER LOVER, BUT MISSED. The loud report of a revolver fired in the neighborhood of Ferguson street, Cessnock, last Saturday night, says the "Cessnock Express," was the cause o£ a number of residents hurry ing out of their homes to ascertain the cause. j The neighborhood soon became astir. ' It was not a Tom Mix or a Buck Jones reJbearsal, but apparently a drama iu which two lovers ware concerned. j Was it the green-eyed god of jeal ously that ca'ased the trouble? . ! "Where are you going?" she de manded. "To. a party," the young man replied. "Well," she said, "you are not," ai>id, ■without any further warning she pointed a revolver at his head and fired. ■ j Did he frJl? Not he, for he had been in the. land where bullets were like-hail ,i\rid a single .bullet grazing his face v?as a mere nothing. With great nerv-e he grappled with the girl , and took the weapon from her, and, i later, handed it to her father. | It is a. case, apparently, of unrecip- ' rocat...
THE ORCHARD. NEW SYSTEM OF PRUNING. Says the "Young Chronicle" [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 5 September 1925
THE ORCHARD. NEW SYSTEM OF PRUNING. Says the "Young Chronicle' A recent visitor to Koorawatha was much struck with the system of prun ing in vogue in two of the large or chards of the district, and realising the interest of this matter to many readers of "The Chronicle," forwards particulars for publication. He intimates that one of the leading orchardists of Koorawatha district re cently secured the services of an ex pert from Victoria and as a result big things are expected from the new sys tem. It would appear from the meth ods introduced at Koorawatha that where the orchardists of Young had been leaving quite a number of lead ers on the prune trees, at Koorawatha they have been cut down to 4 or 5 leaderpj. the intention being to fruit off the long side laterals, utilising more of these and less, leaders. It is claimed by this system thai a more matured prune fruit will result, both from sugar contents and color. In the larger trees, when a leader has been removed instead of cutt...

(Published by Arrangement.) CHURCHMAN ON DISMAL DRINKS [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 5 September 1925
(Published by Arrangement.) CHURCHMAN ON DISMAL DRINKS Dean Inge, of St. Paul's Cathedral, •was recently asked by the New- York "Times" his opinion on Prohibition. "I have nothing worth saying about prohibition," he answered. "I have heard all the usual opinions—that it was a war measure, which ought nev er to have been made part of the Con stitution; that it will soon be a dead letter; and, on the other side, that boys are growing up who have never tasted alcohol, and who will never wish for it. "But I am surprised that no at tempt is made to create an illusion of conviviality by offering effervescing drinks at meals. "Cold water, with which the wild ass^s quench their thirst, is a dismal beverage for human beings." Provided favourable weather is ex perienced the Goulburn and District War Memorial on Rocky.Hill will be completed within the next two months. This is the opinion of the contractor, Mr. H. E. Ibbotson.

DOG POISONING. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 5 September 1925
DOG POISONING. This act of vandalism has again male a mask in our township. Last Tuesday morning several well-known and valuable dogs, to the number of about a dozen, v.'ere to he seen lying about, as well as a number of cats that were reported missing. It goes to show that the person who perpe trated this cowardly act has not even got respect for human life, as the baits must certainly have beeiu left in the back yards intentionally, other why the poor cat, which surely can not be accused of going into the neighbouring paddocks sheep killing. It is quite possible when poison is thrown broadcast about our streets that some innocent child in its play may pick up one of these baits and curiosity may tempt them to taste and try, when the result would inevi dently be the end. Surely the party responsible will take warning and not make indiscriminate use of this class of mixture.
