A QUESTION OF OUNCES. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 6 June 1914

A QUESTION OF OUNCES. Many recent cases in the suburban courts have established the fact that spring balances, such as used by butchers, are apt to develop a will and a-way of their own in meting out meat to customers. It may be that, in many instances, where the master-butcher is concerned, 44a false balance is abomin ation to him, but 11 just weight is his delight/7 nevertheless the evidence of inspectors goes to prove that in a week's weighings there must be a vast amount of shrinkage in the sum total of parcels delivered over certain traders' counters. Many of the scales in use are alleged by defendants to be so susceptible to weather influences that a breath of spring may account for an ounce short age, a summer blast for anything from two ounces and upwards, while the inference is that even a warm swear word might bring along its own penalty to an injudicious purchaser.

PLENTY ROAD TRAM. TO TUB EDITOR. I Sir,—Concerning mutters of interest mid convenience to Preston residents, 1 would like to ask why there is so much delay in forwarding the movement for installing a tram service up Plenty road. Present residents are only too willing to come to terms to take their fair share of responsibility of payment, if necessary. For proof of my state ment, surely a list of signatures could easily be secured of householders and owners specially desirous at the present time for the convenience of a tram. Let it be borne in mind that everyone does not possess a horse and trap, and those who do cannot always drive. Have we to wait another 25 years?— —Yours, Acc.f Long Suppekbk.
