TRAVEL TIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 10 October 1925
TRAVEL TIPS. All cotton; linen, or flimsy silk ma terials are unsuitable for travelling clothes. Light woollen stuffs in a neutral shade of grey or brown are ideal. A frock worn t under a wrap coat is infinitely more comfortable than a coat and skirt. Handbags should be large enough to hold' the train or steamer tickets, etc., and shallow enough to enable them to.be taken out quickly. Leather cushion covers will a han dle can' be stuffed with woollies, fold ing hats, and so on, and serve as bag as well as pillow. :: :: :: ^ If night travel is contemplated, all toilet requisites should be -packet separately in one of, the miniature dressing cases sold' for tlie purpose. It is often difficult to open heavy hand luggage. ' : Cotton wool, astringent lotion, and cream are tlie essential cosmetics, for travel, with, of course, fac$ powder. Jlr.

The Children's Fancy Frolic SPLENDID SPECTACLE. GRATIFYING SUPPORT. "Well done, Taralga Mothers!" [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 10 October 1925
The Children's Fancy Frolic SPLENDID SPECTACLE. GRATIFYING SUPPORT. "Well done, Taralga Mothers!" When the Taralga Public School de cided to raise funds for the Goulburn Hospital by means o£ a fancy dress frolic many foretold failure. But they underestimated the parental love and pride in well doing of our little com munity. Those in charge believing that "nothing succeeds like success" and that no undertaking is too big if. public support is behind you did ev erything in their power to lay the foundations on which could rise a superstructure worthy of Taralga. The children, too, having been taught that it is more blessed to give than to receive, made up their minds to give of their best. The result was the most splendid spectacle ever seen in Taralga. The doors opened punctually at half past six, revealing what looked like another world. Beautiful stream ers were festooned from the centre of the building, from which hung a gorg eous Iceland poppy framed by loving .fingers that have...

Queensland National Park. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 10 October 1925
Queensland National Park. (By C.A.M.J About ten years ago the Queens land Government reserved an area of ten square miles o£ virgin bush and proclaimed it as a national park for the use of future generations, and al so as a sanctuary for native flora, and the Park is situated on the McPher soii Ranges and embraces both the Lamingtou ami the Roberts Plateaus. This area is one of the most pictur esque and romantic spots to be found in Australia, and for scenic beauty outrivals the Blue Mountains of New South Wales in some respects, as the wealth of vegetation resultant from the rich volcanic soil and the sub tropical climate surpasses anything to be found in the South, and adds charm to the whole scene. The summit of the McPherson pos sesses a wonderful variety of ferns, orchids, mosses and lichens, there be ing probably a hundred varieties of ferns ranging from the minute forms on the rocks and tree-trunks to the majestic tree ferns forty feet high. Many of the giant hardwoods are co...

"As things stand now, 110 one is satisfied. The Government is not satisfied. The general run of 'man kind is grievously disappointed one way or the other: the. taxpayer is agrieved, while the oue element tlnit has whatever delight there is to be hnd in the situation is the bootleg ging element." t

WOOL REPORT SYDNEY, Oct. 1. Schute, Bell & Co., Ltd., report: [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 10 October 1925
HOOL REPORT SYDNEY, Oct. 1. Schute, Bell & Co., Ltd., report: Animated competition characteris ed our sale on Monday French op erators were specially in evidence, particularly where lots showing a tendency towards fineness of fibre were under the hammer. As yetj the great bulk ol the weekly offerings has been of broad type, nevertheless, though Bradford is still an Inconsider able factor in the market, orders have sufficed to absorb almost the whole of the daily, offerings at auction pric es fully up to owners' expectations. It would seem to be practically cer tain that the gap between prices for broad and really fine wool respective ly will be larger this season than has been the case for a year or two past. Although many clips are not as strong as they were last year, the aggregate quantity of 70s and thereabouts like ly to be available in Sydney through out the selling season, promises to be considerably below world's require ments. Should the Moroccan trouble per sist, a...
