SMILES WILL FOLLOW YOU. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 31 October 1925
SMILES WILL FOLLOW YOU. Let gladness carry you along The stubborn road to fame. And set you high among the strong Who seek a lustrous name. Keep doing good from day to day, For that's the thing to do, Let friendliness illume your way, And smiles will follow you! When you can help a man in need, Or shift his heavy pack, Run to his aid with loving speed And case his aching back. Heap coals upon a fireless grate. Till flames flare up anew. Place food upon an empty plate, And' smiles will follow you! . It is -affirmed of Nature's plan That like doth like beget, And also, for the good of man, He shall not this forget. If happiness you want to find As you the .world go through. Goodwill bestow upon your kind. And- smiles will follow you! Exalt the patient and content, Who never rancour show. Applaud the man in his ascent Of hills that valour know. Praise him who rises from a fall, Give honour where it'3 due. Incline the ear to Duty's call. And smiles will follow you!
THAT SHINING SUN. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 31 October 1925
THAT SHINING SUN. Though the sun is over ninety-two und a quarter million miles from this earth of ours, astronomers have taught us a lot about it. For instance, u'e know of what it is composed. It is described as a liquid mass, enveloped Uv a luminous atmo sphere. Over this atmosphere various metals and other elements give out ■dense vapours. Many attempts have been made to employ that vast lieat of the sun uii n motive power. As early as 1860 a Frenchman nam ed Mouchot constructed a boiler in which water might he distilled hy the aid of Old Sol. Eight years later an -apparatus. was made by which the condensed rays of the sun might be used to work various machinery. It ■was, however, a failure. In 1880 M. Mouchot actually drovo ail engine by the aid ot the sun's rays collected by a mirror, but the cost of working his invention was too great. Since then various other at tempts have been made to use the sun to work machinery, and no doubt a practicable apparatus will soon be invented...
"HANDY" HINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 31 October 1925
"HANDY" HINTS. Anybody wlio believes that charac ter or future events can be "read" from the hand need not consult a professional palmist. Here are a few points on tbo subject. If the first finger of tho hand curves inwards towards the second finger, it is a sign of a money-loving nature. If the second joint of the thumb is thin, it denotes great tact; and if the first joint is long, it shows strength of will. When the fingers are long and tap ering, it muy be taken that the per son Is of an artistic temperament; when tliey are square and stumpy, a practical nature is indicated. When the line of life (at tho base of the thumb.) is long and thiH, a long, healthy life may be oxpcctcd. If tho line is broken up, look for trouble aud illness.

TENNIS [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 31 October 1925
TENNIS With all its "faults," we love it still— And "court" it day by day,— Where energy joins hands with skill And works so hard at play. We hear the sound of smashing blows, And see tough battles fought; The best of friends may meet as foes Where "love" is set at "nought!" And oh!—the racket and the bawl— (Not those that are in use!) When Tennis Champions—forty all— Are playing like the Deuce! The ball as an example shines, Still game, though knocked about, No matter how it strikes hard lines It must not be put out! Tennis — the game that's come to stay— That everybody likes, -- It holds its own, in this our day, The best of all our Strikes E. F. MARMONT. Golspie.
CRICKET. TARLO v. TARALGA. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 14 November 1925
CRICKET. TARtO v. TARALGA. A team o£ local cricketers from Tar alga journeyed to .Tarlo on Sunday last to try conclusions with that team. This being the first occasion for the present season that the Taralga players have had an opportunity of a game, speculation was rife on* the journey down as to the ultimate re sult and fears were expressed on all sides that the day's outing would eventually terminate with the Taralga players having a real good day's leather hunting, especially if Tarlo was fortunate enough to win the toss. However, the local skipper Iiad the good luck to win the toss and sent his men in to bat, thinking that it was the only ray of hope for at least a little enjoyment. But as time gradually went on and the opening batsman for Taralga, L. C. B. ICrelle, was playing cricket (as the score of 10fr will indicate) right up to a stan dard equal to any country batsman, and as the score steadily crept on to wards the second century, hopes were entertained that if any of th...
(Published by Arrangement.) LAWS THAT BREED ANARCHY. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 14 November 1925
(Published by Arrangement.) LAWS THAT BREED ANARCHY. The New York correspondent of the London "Daily Telegraph" .cables his paper as follows:— "Arrests and imprisonment for drunkenness continue to increase in the State of Now York, despite the Prohibition law, according to the latest figures published by the coun ty gaols, penitentiaries, and city in stitutions for intoxication during the year in the State was approximately 17,000, a greater number than In any year since 1917. "This growing number of arrrests for drunkenness, the Commission, found, was not confined to men, the number of women committed for that offence increasing in every gaol. An alarming number of men and women were arrested for being intoxicated while driving motor cars. "Since the authorities are powerless to prevent bootlegging, it is urged in some quarters that Vigilance Commit tees should lie formed to stop illicit traffic by summary and positive measures—a proposal that Americans should euro anarchy with mor...
Political Points. To Make Trades Unionism Effective. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 14 November 1925
Political Points. To Make Trades Unionism Effective. The industrial troubles which to day afflict Australia are the results mainly of the State Labor Govern ment's failure to recognise their clear duty to carry out the fundament al principle ot Government—the main tenance of la wand order. This fault is due to the reactionary influences at work amongst their supporters, whosje displeasure they are afraidi to incur from fear of being shitted from office, and the loss of its emolu ments. The average working man • does not wish to see his union used as a weapon by the extremists to. force the Government to evade "its ^Responsibilities and so prepare the ■ __»&lt;-ay for the establishment of a revo lutionary system in this country. What the rational worker desires is to have the trades unions utilised for their legitimate work in collective bargaining; and to safeguard the rights and privileges already secured. This purpose will never be achieved by the Labor Party as now consti...

One for Bolong River (lower crossing), £375; and for Bolong River at Tyrl Tyrl on Roslyn-Golspie-Yalbralth rd, £225 approximately. On the first two crossings referred to there is an abundance...

j OLD AGE PENSIONS. NATIONALIST FACT AND LABOR FICTION. Labor protagonists never tire 01 • reiterating the claim that the Labor , Party was responsible for the .initia tion of the payment of Old Age Pen sions in Australia, in spite of the" fact that they have no evidence to ^sup port this impudent claim. So lions and so often has this false .claim . been made, that present-day Labor Party ' speakers and writers ha've,. there is every reason-to believe, ac tually deluded themselves into be lieving it as gospel. There is, of... course, not very much harm in. their believing it.

WOOL REPORT Schute, Bell & Co., Ltd., report: SYDNEY, Nov. 5. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 14 November 1925
.WOOL KEPOBT Schute, Bell & Co., Ltd., report: SYDNEY, Nov. 5. A decided upward trend in prices baa been recorded during the current week, exceptional quality having touched such wholly unexpected lev els that remembrances o£ the lament able experience o£ January to April last 'is thereby somewhat forcibly brought to mind. Greatly as it piec es us to find growers enthusiastic over prices now being realised for their product, it is devoutly to be hoped that the existing keenness of 1 competition between all sections ot the trade is not going to develop again into the mad scramble for wool that characterised the November December sales. We are approaching the period when England and South ern wools of the finest fibre produced In Australia will be under the hammer and prices realised for the best qual ity so far offered this season lead to wonderment as to what is to be the record for such especially fine types. Meantime, those growers whose wool is flue for offering are in cl...
