A MAIL-LESS COMMUNITY [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 12 September 1916

A MAIL-LESS COMMUNITY, Mr. W. Taylor, of Coolamine Plains, writes-: — 'We have only had the mail arrive here five Hmes since May instead of once a week.

CORRECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 12 September 1916

CORRECTION. An unfortunate error crept into our report of the police court pro ceedings in our last issue, by which it was made to appear that Frederick Grenenger was fined for allowing stock to stray in the street. The name of the defen dant was Frederick Grant, junr. We regret the mistake, which occurred through our reporter mistaking the name in the charge book. However, this was not the only mistake made in connection with these court proceedings. An other newspaper reporter made it appear that T. Lupton was convic ted of drunkenness ,whereas the offender was William Lupton. Which bears out the wisdom of the old proverb that people who live in glass houses shouldn't recklessly heave stones about.

TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. {From Our Correspondent] - sydnby! Monday, 5 p.m. Last week's recruiting produ ced only 738 accepted men, which is far below requirements. The Minister for Health states that the Government intends to take important steps to combat consumption. It is proposed to bring all existing agencies under a bureau of compulsory notifica tion throughout the State. Organised deliberate attempts to burn a large number of big business places in the city have been discovered. The criminals are evidently a clever gang, and . possess a knowledge of chemi cals. So far six city victims to fires have been discovered be fore they got properly going. In a few cases chemically soaked cot ton waste was found before it burst into flames. The attempts apparently began last Friday I night.

Economy and Wool Selling. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 12 September 1916

Economy and Wool Sellling. John Bridge and Co.'s waybills for the approaching season come to us enclosed in a cover which contains matter of more than usual interest. These are times of war and uncertainty, and, noL inappropriately, the firm devotes its opening remarks to the su per-urgent need for drastic ecor nomy throughout th -s wool trade. 'Which is to prevail,' they ask, 'economy or wasteful expendit ure ?' And they proceed to im press upon woolgrowers the strong wisdom, in their own interests, of standing shoulder to shoulder with the firm (especially this season) in the strenuous fight that is being waged for the im mediate introduction of economy in the best interests of growers. They point out that there is hardly a political leader or a fi nancial authority 'throughout the world who is not to-day calling emphatically for economy. We understand from Messrs. John Bridge and Co. that they recently issued to producers a compre hensive list giving the opinions of woolgrowers i...

The Mayor, who occupied the chair, said the object of the meet ing was to fall into line, with oth er centres on the route of the Federal railway, and to help to expedite the commencement of the line* The result of the last conference at Yass was the fix ing of a second conference, which will be held at Nowra on the 22nd and 23rd September. There had been 'a lot of deputations in days gone by for the purpose of getting a railway constructed to Braidwood. The difficulty with which they were faced was that there ware two surveys of the line, one of which would pass eight or nine miles from Braid wood, and the other some 20 miles. Their business was to in duce the Government to adopt the former route. If this were done he had not the slightest, doubt but that th...

SHORT SERIAL STORY; ! The Secret fif the Veranda, CHAPTER I.

' Little Miss Drucelle, a girl of twenty, was busy with fancy need- ? lework, and her -sunny head .of corn-yellow hair dropped a little lower. She smiled and her shoul ders shook ever so slightly j . she amused. Click, click went the in dustrious needle, but every now and then the eyelids -that droo- , ped over the pale blue eyes stole a furtive glance at the couple under the veranda. .
