That Raid. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 28 November 1925
That Raid. A trifle was omitted from the par re the late gambling raid. On the top of the fines all the money seized (in the vicinity of £20) was forfeited. Of this amount £12 was the property of the alleged keeper of the house, £2/10/- of another frequenter (also alleged), and £3 that of one more. Added up, the revenue benefited over the score. The court revenue should soon justify the addition of an official typewriter, improved court lighting, and more accommodation for the "clients" (and their sympathisers) of the future .—"Wyong Advocate."

The 'Roo Looked In. He may have possessed the desire to publicly acclaim that he had no fear of the Lake Cowal hunters or an intention o£ providing the telephon ist to communicate his whereabouts to the Young members of the party on. their homeward run. Be this as it may, a big red 'roo appeared in the streets of the village of Caragabal two days after the Coival hunt, pok ed his nose at one of the village doors, then, as if satisfied with his contempt for all and sundry, hopped off, no doubt to join the mob in praisin' their lucky chance in eluding the hunters, on the trail of the 'roo down Cowal way. —"Young Chronicle.''

When the train pulled out into the open air a marked increase in the signal strength of the broadcasting was noted.

Swat that Fly! HE IS YOUR COMMON ENEMY. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 28 November 1925
Swat that Fly! HE IS YOUR COMMON ENEMY. The ijuestion: "Where do flies go io„in winter?" is not nearly so, im t portant as: "Where do flies come "ironi in summer?" But the latter is "Jar more easy to answer. They arc iatched in filth, and they enter hous es because adequate precautions are not taken to keep them out..or, at any rate, to prevent them from con taminating food with the myriads-of •disease germs they carry. These are some of the things ^flies' like:—Warm- weather, tilth. waste tt'ood, manure, old paper, anil dirty rags. Given any of these, the 'fly can^ so 011 multiplying ami spreading dis ease finite comfortably. Conversely, ilies detest cleanliness, shortage of '.food, and absence of suitable places to breed.

Just Driftin' Along. "HOMELESS AND A WANDERER." DERELICT ON THE OCEAN OF LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 28 November 1925
Just Driftin' Along. I ['"HOMELESS AND A WANDERER." DERELICT ON THE OCEAN OF LIFE. Perhaps the ordering of Selby Bry ant to undergo a sentence of sis months in the Gouiburn gaol in order that he might receive medical treat ment was not a sentence, but a humane ordering (says the Young "Chronicle.") However, that is what P.M. Harrison decided to do in the case of Bryant after hearing the story of the police concerning a charge of vagrancy at the Young Police Court on "Wednesday morning. The man with breast unbared and looking a drifter on life's back, stood unsteadily on his feet and evidently was in want of proper nourishment., and so, maybe, the magistrate pur sued the kindly course. Many a story to bring sympathy is told in the Police Court and one could not help sympathising with the con- ; dition of Bryant. Constable Prangley told the story of the man who, like a creation of Adam Lindsay Gordon, booted and bearded and burned to a 'brick, was loafing along the highway . of life w...

According to the Constitution mem bers must assemble within 30 days of the return o£ the writs, and on this occasion the writs are returnable not later than December 14. In some quarters it has been sug gested that a short session might be held before Christmas, but it is known that this idea will not be adopted. Early in the session of the last Par liament a resolution was agreed to by the House to the effect that the Governor-General should be request ed to summon the first meeting of the next Parliament to sit at Canberra.
