Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 18 December 1914

The Non-Advertiser. Breathes there a Man with soul so dead Who never to himself hath said: "My trade of late is getting bad, I'll try another two-inch ad." If such there be, go mark him well, ?or him no bank account shall swell, No angel watch the golden stair To welcome him a millionaire; The man who never asks for trade, By local lines or ad. displayed, Cares more for rest than worldly gain And patronage must give him pain. Tread lightly, riends let no rude sound Disturb his solitude profound. Here let him live in calm repose, Unsougnt by men except he owes, And when hedies, go plant him deep, That naughtmay break his dreamless sleep, Where no rude clamor may dispel Tie quiet that he loved so well, And that the World mqy know its loss, Place on his grave a wreath of moss; And on a stone above, "Here lies A chump who wouldn't advfertiee*" "The Independent" - -rr— ~ P uMislied oil Tuesday and Friday Mornings. - The Official Organ of BENALLA WATER TRUST. : Subscription: 4s. per Quart...

Correspondence. GAS V. ELECTRICITY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 18 December 1914

Correspondence. GAS V. ELECTRICITY. . ^ TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—I must thank Mr. Taylor for crediting me with so much electrical knowledge, but a natural modesty compels me to point out that he was too flattering in ascrib ing myself as the source of the figures I quoted. They came from Messrs. Semmens and Co., the largest electrical engineers iu the world, so I am not surprised that he did not care to dispute .them— so far, so good. My next state ment was that "a supposedly 50 c p gaslight with modern inverted mantle consumed four feet of gas per hour." I say supposedly, on Mr. H. R. Harper's (Melbourne city lighting engineer) authority, not my own. Mr. Taylor con veniently ignored this part of my letter and went into a maze of figures (which somewhat resemble those given by'' Ratepayer''). These calculations are based on his (Mr. 1 Taylor's) statement that the said light should consume two feet of gas per hour. Now I recognise that Mr. Taylor is the manager of the Benalla gas works an...

' A .public meeting, convened by 'the Shire Council forTuesday even ing 10 discus's the burning question of Electricity or Gas. for the town, was held at the Shire Hall, the President (Cr. Mathiesou) in the chair). Cr. Bennison and the sec retary (Mr. Knox) were also present. / There, wore about 50 ratepayers in ' attendance. . The President, in opening, said the meeting had been called at the . request of the Traders'Association. : which : body had been interesting itself in the matter of securing electricity as the lighting scheme for the town. He pointed out that this question had never actually been before the Council.
