SHOES AND STOCKINGS New Shades for Summer Shoes are going to be very gorgeous for the evening ,but quiet for day wear. A pink tinge will predominate, as in stockings. The favourite summer -shoe will . be a sandal made of panama. Well cut and Light, and cool, these are a great im piovcment on the raffia and Upon san- dals of last year. White court shoes made of buck-skin or French kid, and worn with pink-tan stockings make the feet look mot,t at- tractive ,and will bo worn with white frocks on smart occasions. Groy .shoes and btockings will also bo correct. There is n pink-grey stock- ing that looks extremely well with a light,grey lizard-skin shoe. These shoci, will outlast three or four pairs of ordin- ary kid; they keep their shape if' treated kindly for a year or so, and can I be! cleaned. The all-white shoe Is not so smart a.s that with coloured strappings. Here again grey -lizard skin is used. I Tan suede shoes and tan stockings ! are a great stand-by in the summer, I for they ...

FEDERATION 25 Years' Achievements Reviewed Commonwealth Problems [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 21 October 1926
FEDERATION 25 Years' Achievements - Reviewed Commonwealth Problems The Speaker of the House of Repre- sentatives (Sir Littleton Groom) re- cently delivered a very notable address in Melbourne, of which the following is an outline:- . "Long before the birth of the Aus- tralian nation, Brunton Stephens, the Queensland poet, sang of the coming Commonwealth. He wrote:- &nbsp; So flows, beneath our good and ill, A viewless stream of common will, A gathering force, a present might. That from its silent depth of gloom, At wisdom's voice shall leap to light Till all our sundering lines by love o'ergrown Our bounds shal be the girdling seas alone. On January 1, 1901, George Essex Evans hailed the new-born Common- wealth : Freeborn of nations, virgin white. Not won by blood, nor ringed with steel, Thy throne is on a loftier height, Deeprooted in the Commonweal. In 1901, the Commonwealth was launched in a manner worthy of a nation. It started with high ideals. It was established under ...

CO-OPERATIVE STORE A Canberra Landmark TO BE DEMOLISHED [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 21 October 1926
CO-OPERATIVE STORE A Canberra Landmark TO BE DEMOLISHED Another landmark of Canberra is to &nbsp; be effaced in pursuance of the policy of converting the city into its garden state. The latest to go is not as old as some of the historic objects extant round Canberra. It is the old Co-ope- rative Store—one of the first institu- tions of the newer Canberra. Tenders have bean invited by the Federal Capital Commission for the purchase or removal of the old co- operative store buildings at Eastlake. The building consists of a weather- board structure with iron roof and ve- randah, and outbuildings. Tenders will be received till noon on October 27, and the successful applicant must remove the buildings within three months of the date of acceptance. The Co-operative Store is well &nbsp; known to every resident of Canberra, and was for many years the only shop which existed in the Federal Capital City area.
DEMAND FOR WOOL Continental Activity SPECULATOR'S FORTUNE [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 21 October 1926
DEMAND FOR WOOL Continental Activity SPECULATOR'S FORTUNE . The cont'ncnt has sot the pace for the wool inaiket of latp. As was the case last season, it is a strange cir- cumstance that France, a country with its finance in an unstable condi- tion, shouid bp to the fpre in buying, But she is so, an,d has been more or loss in that position for "over à year. Her competition may wane .at some time. Germany, however, is constant- ly gaining vigor as a purchaser. Con- sequently, any falling ofß lu Fivtich inquiry, would be far, less ttlt , to-day than a year ago. For two days during the laSjt work, Winchcombe Carson, Ltl. slates, .jap- anese "demand slackened, but sub.se quently. recovered, The temporary easing,in Japanese ,orders, however, dil not affect rates. Business iii tops at the BIM Iford mills is reported as quiet. Influenced by the buoyancy of wool prices at Aus- tralian sales, rates for, tops moved up- ward in Yorkshire. But consumers ap- parently did n,ot r.esporid. The pnev ...

THE GREAT WHITE TRAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 21 October 1926
THE GREAT WHITE TRAIN. The advent of the "Australian Made" Preference League's great caravan of Australian industry to Canberra is an event of considerable importance to the civic development of Canberra, but it is also of very great significance and importance to the "Australian Made" Preference League. To the citizens of Canberra, the league brings its gospel of preference for Australian made goods, which is a policy which must be applied in Canberra, with perhaps more meticulous care than anywhere else, and it is particularly gratifying to note that Australian made products have played a greater part in the de- velopment of Canberra than in that of any other city or town of Australia, and that the preference extended to Australian made goods has been almost absolute. In the domestic wants of the people of Canberra, the same policy is essential. It is not sufficient that Canberra in after years shall tell the people of Australia to follow cer- tain lines of economic development, t...
Topics of the Times A FINE EXAMPLE [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 21 October 1926
Topics of the Times A FINE EXAMPLE Behind the commencement of the first permanent banking premises in Canberra lies more than the initial step on the part of a financial insti- tution to trade in the Federal Capital City. There are seven banks interest- ed in Canberra, but the entry of the Queensland National Bank, which will be the first at Civic Centre, is perhaps more significant than that of most other financial institutions. This bank is entering Canberra for Canberra's sake. The decision to establish a branch here was not the result of a &nbsp; close examination of ledger accounts— it was a recognition of the respect which every great Australian institu- tion owes to its Federal Capital City. The Queensland National is a bank which is not as extensively known throughout Australia as some banks which have not troubled about Can- berra. It is not a bank which has en- joyed hitherto a big connection in the Southern districts of New South Wales, which a branch at Canberra ...

THE PIONEER A New Magazine [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 21 October 1926
THE PIONEER A New Magazine In the passage of time, the Federal Capital Pioneer, the first monthly &nbsp; newspaper of the Federal Capital City, which appeared first in December 1924, has taken new form, and the Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine is to con- tinue the tradition and fill the place of the old Pioneer. The first issue of the magazine, a copy of which is to hand, indicates clearly the purpose which the new publication is to serve. The magazine is to be a historical publication and it was appropriate that the first issue should have, therefore, a representa- tion of old Acton House, the first set- tler's home, on its cover. Within are articles on matters of historical im- portance to Australia, including a con- tribution of Early Canberra, from the pen of Henry Selkirk, F.R.A.H.S., an appreciation of Captain Phillip, by Capt. J. H. Eatson, president of the Royal Australian Historical Society, &nbsp; an article by J. A. Ferguson, M.R.A.H. S., on the Father of ...
TWO WONDERFUL CABLES ONE 1800 MILES LONG [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 21 October 1926
TWO WONDERFUL CABLES ONE 1800 MILES LONG Two new electrical cables have caused great interest in the engineering world. One between Chicago and New York, 861 miles long, has just been completed at a cost of five million pounds. Its value will be understood when it is known that 500 telegraph messages and 250 telephone messages can be trans- mitted through it at the same time. The other cable is now being carried to sea by the world's largest cable ship, the Calonia. This cable is 1800 miles long, and is to be laid between Cocos, in the Indian Ocean, and Fre- mantle, Australia. Wound round its core, is a new metal, capable of carrying an additional current, and making it possible for telegrams to be sent at a speed of 2100 letters a minute, instead of only 145 letters a minute, as at present. The progress made by telegraph and telephone engineers during the last two or three years is quite equal to the better-known progress in wireless.

New Residential Suburb CLOSEST TO PARLIAMENT BUILDING WELL ADVANCED Telopea Park, the nearest residential suburb to Parliament House, has risen quickly on virgin ground, until now, a striking group of cottages is clus- tered along the Waratah Parkway, which separates the Telopea Park area from Eastlake. The development of this suburb was commenced only in June last, after the second sale of leases, and most of the blocks have been reserved for members of the staffs of Commonwealth Government departments. Telopea Park is a suburb which will be occupied almost exclusively by the Commonwealth Public Service. This is due to its proximity to the No. 1 Sec- retariat and Parliament House, and there is no residential area available in closer proximity to these centres. The lay out of the subdivision is characteristic of the garden city, though local conditions have rendered it some- what unique. It adjoins for instance, the beautifully placed Telopea Park school, which is one of the most ch...

Melba Returning to Australia. Dame Nellie Melba has advised Mr. John Lemmone that she will be re- turning to Australia in the Naldera, due in Melbourne on January 24. After resting awhile she purports giving &nbsp; some farewell concerts. Sarcastic people say they know now why the cables recently told us of Mel- ba's talk about her beloved Australia!
