"Bootleggers'" Clientele. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 25 May 1923

V "Bootlessrers' " Clientele. A nrst-class sensation has been caused in Washington by the publication of a list of names discovered in the course of a raid on the quarters of a gang of "bootleggei's" (lipuor traffickers). The list purports to comprise the names-there are over- one thousand of them-of the bootleggers' principal Washington customers. If it i^ authentic, society there stands revealed as composed largely of prohibition law break- ers. High officers of the navy and army are implicated, and not only social lead- ers and big business men, but even judges figure in the list.

Valedictory. FAREWELL TO MR. D. W. A. CROMBIE AT KENSINGTON DOWNS. (Contributed). [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 25 May 1923

FAREWELL TO MR. D.W.A. CROMBIE     AT KENSINGTON DOWNS. (Contributed). After tea on Sunday night, April 20th, Mr. and Mrs. D. W. A. Crombie and their boys, who left for their new home recently   purchased hear Warwick, on the 16th inst., were asked to go up to the quarters where the employees of the station wished to formally bid them good-bye. . "When all had assembled, Mr. A. Gowen, an old friend and recently acting manager, during Mr. Crombie's absence briefly addressed the guests, expressing the deep regret felt by all at the departure of the chief and his family. He then asked the guests' accept- ance of a few small gifts as tokens of the very high regard, in which, they were held by the employees. A large cardboard box was then opened and the principal gift   divested of its tissue and handed to Mrs. Crombie. This was a small silver plated   hot-water jug with ebony handle, plain but beautiful, on which was engra...

Thc Queensland Trustees, Ltd. The local agents for the above company (Messrs L. C.

These shares are probably one of the most popular of the company share invest- ments on the Brisbane Stock Exchange list. For one thing the company is well man- aged, and has so solid a reputation that the volume of its trust business increases sub- stantially every year. In the past four years the growth has been over £1,630,000, and the total in July last approached £5, 680,000. With the exception of 1919, when the net profits weakened by £240, its earn- ing power has steadily risen with each suc- ceeding year, enabling the directors to' in- crease the dividend rate from 7 per cent ...

Rifle Shooting. V .

Thurecht with "a score of | 00. off the rifle. The conditions for shoot- I ing werei not too brilliant, a Ash tail wind, f blowing. I I might here say that at the conclusion -g of the shooting, Mr. Thurecht handed the f shooting case to Mr. Avery at the same time I congratulating him on having put up such | an excellent score. Mr. Avery, in re- J,^ spending, thanked Mr. Thurecht for his £ kind remarks and also for his kindly ac- I tion in presenting the case to the members | for competition. ^ I At the 300 yards range, Herb.

Enamelled Propellers. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 1 June 1923

Enamelled Propellers. Almost all small craft and the faster ocean liners have polished bronze propel- lers, in spite of there heavy cost. In cargo ships, for the sake of economy, the pro- pellers are cast-iron. The *efflciency of smoothness of the surface (says "Cham- bers' Journal") cast iron corrodes and becomes very rough in sea water. If a vessel with an old cast iron propeller is fitted with one of polished bronze she will go faster with the same power, or the en- gines will use less fuel for the original speed. Owners of cargo ships, however, have not thought the initial expense would be justi- fied by the saving effected. Recently a German company has devised a method of coating cast-iron propellers with enamel, similar to that used on the advertisement plates to be seen in railway stations and other places. This gives a . beautifully smooth serface, which will not corrode. As would be expected, the speed of vessels has been appreciably increased by treat- ing old corroded ca...

A Cow in a Dining Room. [Newspaper Article] — The Longreach Leader — 1 June 1923

A Cow In a Bining Room. We have often heard the story of a Bull In tv China Shop, but a cow in a dining room is quite a novelty. This, however, actually happened at Enoggera* saleyards quite re- cently. A truck of fat cows consigned to Mreheads, Limited, by Messrs Higgins Bros. of Sandy Creek, near Warwick, were brought up to the saleyards from the train, when one broke away and walked up the steps 3 feet 6 inches high, on to_the ver- andah, and then entered the long dining room and walked between the tables. The waitresses, seeing the cow coming, ran into the kitchen and shut the door. The kit- chen is detached, but is connected at the corner of the dining with a covered pass- age 2 feet 6 inches wide and 8 feet long. The cow entered this passage blocked jon one side by a tank, and went down the back steps on the other side, about 7 feet 6 inches to the ground, and, although there was á sulky side on at these back steps, not a thing wás broken. It was a most extra- ordinary inciden...
