Last of the Wilga Coal Mine. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 20 June 1919
Last of the Wiiga Coal Mine, i i The Wilga coal mine is now a thing : of the past, says the Breeza correspon dent. The whole plant has been sold, and with the exception of the railway rails removed, and nothing now remains of what was once hoped to be a profit- ; able and industrial proposal but a big heap of dirt. This is to be regretted, as it means loss ot' money to the share holders, and loss of employment to a number.

REPORTED GOLD DISCOVERY [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 20 June 1919
| REPORTED GOLD DISCOVERY l ' j Mr. S. Wood, Pin-dimar, Port Ste j pliei.s, informs us (Dungog^Ohroiiieis) | that he has" discovered goldin that dis | trict. He has secured a, permit toentei I iiu.i lias pegged out 40 acres. He will i start and prospect the find almost im ! mediately. It is; reported that - many i years ago an old black-fellow frequently brought in small quantities of alluvial gold into Tea Gardens, but lie would never divulge the secret of his wealth. At the s-pot where Mr. Wood has found the precious metal he unearthed a pieec of bark with the ends turned up, ami it was evidently used to wash the dirt instead of using a dish. The gold found is coarse and has evidently not tra velled far. Hr. Woods thinks it is the washing from a reef which may be near at hand. If the prospect proves a pay able one there will 110 doubt be an in flux of miners to the locality.

REFLECTIONS OF A TEAMSTER Being a few words about the value of * a, Good Name—in other "words' the inestimable benefit that attaches to an Advertised Trade-Mark. i - (By Mike Kinney.) They tell me I sure do a lot of talk ing, and there are some that go so fai as to say that my job must be a sine cure—in other words, that-it 'Works itself. Well, 1 guess I do talk some much, but then you see out here in the fresh air on thiB platform there is so much going on, so much to see, that hardly a minute in the day passes 'but that my eye catches on to something thnt gives me a thought, and once a thought .catches my eye, it's all over, and un less I work it out of my system there is no knowing what part of my anatoin\ might bust. For the last fifteen minutes my eye has caught two words stenciled on near ly every one of the three or four hun dred cases on the waj' to them trucks. See 'em! "Stanley Tools"—and as I "ponder on the thought suggested, it occurs to me that these words aren't new—th...
GUESSING IS KNOWING. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 20 June 1919
GUESSING IS KNOWING. By Walt Mason. If 1 were selling nails or glass, or pills or shoes or garden sass, or honey from the bee—whatever line of goods were mine, I 'd study up the special line and know its history. If I, a stock of rags should keep, I'd read up sundry books 011 sheep and wool and how it grows. Beneath my old bald freckled roof I'd store some facts on warp and woof and other things like those. I'd try to know a spinning jack from patent churn or waggon- rack, a loom from hog-tight fence; and if a man came in to buy and asked some leading question, I could answer with some sense. If I were selling books, I'd know .. Shakespeare from an Edgar • Poe, a Carlyle from a Pope; and I would know Fitzgerald's rhyme from Laura Lib bey's brand of crimes, or Lillian Rus sell's dope. If I were selling shoes, I'd seize the fact that, on gooseberry trees good leather- doesn't grow;; that 'shoe pegs', do not grow the stuff- that wins;: the man without it soon "begins to 'get 'his trade...

TUG-OF-WAB TIPS. HINTS THAT HEIxP YOU TO "GEi1 THE PTJUi." (B.y Edmund Bates.) "Now then—pull!" With muscle.- that seem to be almosi cracking under the terrific strain, with laboring chests, with sweat pouring off their foreheads, five stout-hearted men loyally res-pond to the call of their leader and give a great heave, spaa-, modic but uniform, to The thick rope on which all their energies are concen trated. Another, and yet another—eyes pro ; truding and backs almost breaking— : how long will it last? It seems beyond ; the bounds of human possibility to go ' on any ionger! i But hold 011! The other side are tir ! ing! One more pull and it is over. ; Slowly but inevitably, the six men op j pes d to them are drawn forward inch I by inch, and at last the referee, whose ; watchful eye has followed every move ■ ment of the struggle, raises his hand.

Wool Trade—It's Return to Normal | SLOW PROGRESS, BUT SURE j Dame Fashion Once More Asserts j Herself, and Growers thereby Benefit. The -wool trade is getting hack by slow degrees to normal conditions, re port .John Bridge and Co., Ltd. The first step in that, direction was the re opening of the London wool sales, and it is satisfactory from a producer's point of view, as well as from that of the imperial Government, that the prices realised have—011 the average— been appreciably above the reserves fixed bv the Imperial Authorities, who own the wool and will continue to own The McMyler Coal Hoist, which has been so little used • since its costly erection at Newcastle. it until the whole of the Australian and New Zealand clips of season 3'5)19-1920 has passed out of their hands. With tlie return to normal, Dame. Fashion once more takes her hand in the question of the articles required. Serges and gaberdines continue in as great favor as ever,-but there has been a complete reversal in...
