The Elections.

The twenty metropolitan seats have gone fifty-fifty, that is to, say 10 Labour and 10 United Party 1. candidates have been returned, and thu Theodore Government, will get its major " ity, variously estimated from 10 to 14, from the Country Electorates. There were two surprises in the City-Muree and Merthyr. Even the leaders ol' Labour looked upon Maree ¡is practically lost and the United c. Party considered it an absolutely dead-sure thing.

Concert at Beaconsfield. A very successful concert was hold in the Library at Beaconsfield the day before the cut out (writes a correspondent). The or- ganising of the concert was in the capable hands of Messrs McIntosh and W. Hall. The programme was a very good one ; sev- eral of the artists having to respond to well-deserved encores. Songs were ren- dered . by Messrs Noel Jackson, Jas. Mah- oney, N. Coleman, Jack Davey and A. Mc- Gregor. Mr. Jack Hall recited" "Lasca" and gave as an encore "The Play" from the Sentimental Bloke. Mr. Noel Jackson sang "Memories" and responded to the ac- clamation with "Rambling Rose." Mr. Mc- Intosh delighted the audience with his hum- ourous songs ."Fair, Fat, and Forty" and "Biscuits in the Bed". The commedietta "The First Dinner" was well received,' but the stage prompter had his work cut out in prompting the amateur actors.

Ford's Millions. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 18 May 1923

Ford's Millions. -: o : Henry Ford is the world's richest man. Wall-street has decided this, after scru- tinising the latest financial statement, show- ing his assets at £107.000,000 compared with £80.000,000 last year. Wall-street es- timates Ford's total fortune at £150,000,000 thus vastly exceeding that of Mr. Rock feller, who has given away £200,000,000, and now possesses ¿inly a paltry £60,000, 000. Mr. Ford's statement shows that the cash in hand totals £32,000,000, an increase of £10,000,000 over last year. It was pointed out that, inasmuch as the outstanding capital stock of the Ford Com- pany amounts only to 17,204,500 dollars, consisting of 17,645 shares at the par value of a hundred dollars each, it is evident that the profits for the year ended February, 1923. exceeded 690 dollars a share, which is practically unprecedented. It is asserted that Henry Ford is, in per- sonal estate, the richest man in the world, whereas until recently John D. Rockfeller held that position....

BRISBANE RIVER CENTENARY. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 18 May 1923

BRISBANE RIVER CENTENARY. It js one hundred years this year since Oxley discovered the Brisbane river and it has been definitely decided to fittingly cele- brate the centenary. The City Council is to contribute £5000 and it is hoped the Gov- ernment will also assist financially, since the river is a natural highway. Besides Hhe ' City Council, the Governor, the His- torical Society and many prominent cit- izens are* interesting themselves in the pro- ject, which embraces the erection of some permanent memorial. What form the lat- ter will take has not yet been decided but among the suggestions are a monument to Capt. Cook, or Oxley, the linking up of the gap in tlie coastal railway between the State?/ or the perfecting of roads from the city to its seaside resorts. Though the.mat- ter has not yet beeil thoroughly discussed general opinion seems to favour a memorial in the shape of something useful. .Meantime' a number of group sub-committees have been formed, each being required to ...

A Stitch in Time [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 18 May 1923

A Stitch in Tims No kidney.ailment is unimportant. Don't overlook the slightest backache or urinary irregularity. Nature may be warning you of approaching gravel or serious kidney disease. Kidney disease is seldom fatal if treated in time, but neglect may pave the way. Don't neglect- lame or aching back an other day. Don't ignore dizzy spells, irregular or discoloured urine, head- aches, weariness, or depression. If you feel you need kidney help, begin using the reliable time-tried remedy, Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. For years they have been found effective. Read this testimony: Mr. David Bugden, Ash Street, Bar- caldine, says: "Some time ago, when wool-pressing. I was suddenly seized with tetrtble pains across my back and loins., I got so bad that I could not get about, and w,ork was out of the question. .My rest at night was broken, consequently J always felt ^ tired and miserable.
