Radio on the Farm. BRIGHTENING UP LIFE. WILL IT STOP THE DRIFT? [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 21 November 1925
Radio on the Farm. brightening up life. WILL IT STOP THE DRIFT? "While there is always u tendency for a drift from the farm to the city, nothing will do more, I believe, to hold a man to his farm than the ad vent of radio. The time comes in the life of a young man and a girl when they tire of working twelve or fourteen hours a day; harnessing a team of horses in the dark becomes unattractive, the soul begins to yearn for something more, something to re lieve the monotony, to break down the eternal grind, to bring a little of the outside world into a restricted ex istence. The coming of the motor car, the telephone, the railway, the good road, have all done their share; but the .comforts which they bring are only periodical, whereas radio can be with you on the farm always. ALWAYS .WITH YOU. At ten o'clock iu the morning the selector, 500 miles or 1,000 from Syd ney can listen in to the morning's news two or three days before it will reach him iu print; his children on three days a w...

Co. writes:— Sheep Skins: The, market has of late reflected the great buoyancy in the wool trade and at last auction the tendency was towards a higher level, particularly as regards long stapled merinos.

Sjjire Election Campaign. MEETING AT TARALGA. A correspondent writes: On Saturday night Mr. Theodore Corby, who is a candidate £or Rid ing "A,'" Muhvaree Shire, at the forthcoming elections, addressed a large crowd or ratepayers in the Fed eral Hall. Mr. Corby dealt at considerable length with the question of roads and proved conclusively that he has a thorough practical knowledge of the best methods of making and repairing roads. He stated that he was in favour of a- blue metal "foundation, ■with quartz gravel as a top dressing, and he attached particular import ance to the necessity of good drains and water tables. Mr. Corby believes that the most I economical way of dealing with the I roads is to first put them in repair and then to keep them in that con dition. With regard to the latter he favours one maintenance man (with wheel barrow) to a certain length o£ road. This id a n would be responsible for keeping all drains and water tables clean, for patching up holes, etc. Then th...
