THE SURE SIGN. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 31 October 1925
THE SURE SIGN. A dull, persistent pain in the back, an ache that spoils sleep an dis worse in the morning, a sharp, cutting pain when bending, is a sure sign ol kid ney disease. It is not really the back aching, but the kidneys, which lie just beneath the small of the back. Doan's Backache Kidney Pills quickly relieve the kidneys and help tliem to drive out of the body the poisons which cause backache, urin ary disorders, rheumatism, gravel, atone. The case here given proves that cures are thorough: Mrs. K. Mortimer, Cowper-utreet. Crookwell, says: "I am pleased to tell I you Doan's Backache Kidney Pills j cured nie of backache and kidney s trouble some three years ago and I [ have ben as right as a bunk ever since. Previous to my cure my back was very painful and it was only with great difficulty tbat I could get about.' My general health was poor and X often used to feel fit for noth iug. Afriemi suggested that I should take Doan's Backache Kidney Pills, and spoke so highly o£ the...
WOOL REPORT SYDNEY, Oct. 22. Schute, Bell & Co., Ltd., report: [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 31 October 1925
WOOL REPORT SYDNEY, Oct. 22. Schute, Bell & Co.. Ltd.. report: Sales have proceeded in Brisbane this week very much on the lines of our experience in Sydney of late. Buoyancy continues, fortunately with out any tendency to dangerous boom ing. Steadily consumption is becom ing rehabilitated on a more healthy looting, and now that Bradford com petition is expanding, and becoming an active factor in our market, it does not seem to be unreasonable to have confidence in maintainance of steady values. A recent cable from the Australian Trade Commissioner in the United States forecasts extensive buying here by America during the next few weeks. "Whilst it does seem probable that America will be forced to ac quire an appreciable quantity of Aus tralian fine wool this season, it would,' in our opinion, lie madness to back fulfilment of the Trade Commis sioner's prediction to the extent of withholding wool from auction until such demand materialises. The Un ited States came in spasmod...

School News. Two important State-wide examina tions were held this week—the permit to enrol and the High School entrance. The former, on Monday, attracted 50,000 candidates, the quota from our local school being twelve. The questions set were satisfactory to the teachers and pupils.

What's Wrong With Your Wife? PLAIN TALK TO UNTHINKING HUSBANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 31 October 1925
What's Wrong With Your WifeP PLAIN TALK TO UNTHINKING HUSBANDS. (By Dorothy Dix, in the "Weekly Press and N.Z. .Referee.") If you could listen to the thoughts of nine husbands out of ten, you would hear this: "I don't know what's the matter with Mary! She is peevish and cross and about as comfortable to live with i as a porcupine. Seems to think lier-. ! self ill-used, yet here 1 am working myself to death to shield her from the hardships of life. What does she ; want? Hasn't she a good home? i Hasn't she good clothes Can't she ! spend half of her time amusing her ! self if she wants to? Am I not as do ; mesticated as the house eat? Women aro queer, unreasonable creatures!" Now, when I think of the m'arvels that the masculine intellect has wrought—when 1 think of the great hooks and plays men have written, and the great pictures they have painted: when I think of the Panama Canal, and wireless, and the gramo phone, and the telephone, I am down on my knees in awe and admiration and v...
Tennis Club Ball. (Contributed). [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 31 October 1925
Tennis Club Ball. (Contributed). [ Last Friday night, 2Hrd October, I strolled down Orchard-street, and happening to liear the delightful strains of the Band Orchestra I peep ed into the Federal Hall. 1 could scarcely believe my eyes. Gay festoons hung from the ceiling and the hall itself was delightfully hidden tinder bowers of laurel. It was not the splendour of the decora tions. though, that caused the greatest surprise. It was the people. The men looked spic and span in their best suits, and the women were beautiful ly froeked. Indeed they would have done credit to a metropolitan ball room. But the faces of all were so strange to me. Some were weird; others grotesque; others so coniical that 1 could scarcely contain my mirth. Completely mystified, and iu voice I . hardly recognised as my own, I managed to inquire the meaning' of thig transformation. It was then I learned tliat I had stumbled in on the tennis club .ball. All became clear to me—the decora tions, the masks and the ...

Wales are preparing lor an argument as to which will be the sites of radio relaying stations for the relaying or re-broadcasting o£ matter broadcast from Sydney.

The district has been already vis ited by several prospective buyers and, generally speaking, owners are inclined to sell at home this season, .not caring to risk the market after the Very unpleasant expericncc .or last year.
